Cherche Midi 5


Home Description

An address in the 6th arrondissement is highly desirable; but of course, there are specific streets within the 6th arrondissement that are far more attractive than others. The rue du Cherche-Midi is one of those streets where many people would give their eye teeth to live and pay a pretty penny to purchase a piece of it!

One of the major factors contributing to the rue du Cherche-Midi’s exclusive charm is that it is not a major thoroughfare for traffic. An ancient street, its calm, narrow nature has many facades that go back several centuries. Many architecturally interesting facades line the street from one end to the other and there is a plethora of restaurants, tea shops, clothing stores, and antique shops, enough to make for an appealing address. When you are on this street, both up and down, the thrill of Paris is pervasive.

Our CHERCHE MIDI 5 flat is on the oldest end of the street, nearest to the Seine River and the St. Germain des Pres square. Located one flight up in what is most likely a 17th century building, this apartment was just recently renovated by the owner, who took what was a bland nondescript space covered in sheet rock and plaster and turned it into a distinctively warm, authentic, appealing abode with exposed beams and stone walls. He changed the layout of the flat in order to make for a more open feel, so the kitchen is now behind a tall L-shaped bar that opens out into the living/dining room area. There is a bed couch in the living room area that can sleep two comfortably. The main bedroom has two twins that when joined together, make a king size bed. The bathroom has a tub/shower arrangement. In short, this fully equipped flat is perfectly suited to comfortable living and perfectly situated for seeing the sights of Paris as a pedestrian, if you so desire.

In the immediate vicinity of the flat, you will find a taxi stand, numerous bus lines, 3 major metro lines, and many desirable destinations that are within close walking distance, such as ‘La Grande Epicerie’ gourmet grocery store, the Orsay Museum, the St. Germain des Pres square, the Luxemburg Gardens, etc. Just one block away, there is an outdoor food market that takes place 3 times a week on the Boulevard Raspail. The people who live in this precise area of Paris swear by it. They wouldn’t want to live elsewhere, given the conveniences at hand, the charm of the surroundings, and the genteel buzz that permeates the air.
