Rive GaucheBack to Paris
This modern and comfortable two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment places you in the heart of the fabulous St-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood. Situated on a quiet street between the Seine river and the chic boulevard St-Germain, your vacation rental is housed within in an elegant 17th century building and proposes an ideal boutique hotel alternative. Walk into the charming courtyard and enjoy the convenience of the elevator up to your fourth floor haven in Paris.
Upon entering, you are greeted by a bright dine-in kitchen bathed in morning sunlight. The state of the art European appliances will delight the best of chefs and the stone countertops offer a sleek surface for preparing your meals. Just off the kitchen and overlooking a historic Parisian street is the inviting living room with its parquet floor, gorgeous Designer’s Guild sofa, and Italian chairs, creating an ambiance that captures the chic simplicity of modern day Paris.
The bedrooms are comfortable, modern, and minimal: perfect for an excellent night of sleep. The master has a queen bed and an en suite bathroom with combination bathtub and rainshower. The cozy second bedroom has a double bed and easy access to the second bathroom, with its stylish Italian black marble shower, toilet, and sink. The apartment offers separate washer and dryer units, thick fluffy white towels, quality cotton linens, and many other touches to make your stay pure comfort and enjoyment.
This apartment is at the heart of the chic Left Bank steps from the Seine, rue de Buci market, Pont Neuf, and all that St-Germain-des Prés has to offer. It is within easy walking distance to the best of central Paris: the Louvre, Tuileries and the shopper’s paradise of rue St- Honoré to the north, the Marais, Latin Quarter and Notre Dame to the east. The Luxembourg Garden lies ten minutes directly south by foot. The neighborhood has a range of great restaurants from the Michelin starred L’Hôtel to its many intimate bistros. Paris is truly at your fingertips and the Rive Gauche property offers everything you need to customize your Parisian experience.

We returned to Paris with our son, Harry, who came with us for the first time at age 5 and is now 20. What a wonderful time we have all had! The apartment was lovely and we cooked each evening together. The surrounding neighborhood is ideal. We have enjoyed every minute... the sound of the seagulls, voices of the neighbors (like Rear Window!), and the hum of cars going by. All so many things we will think of on our return home. (+ the cute long-haired dachshund at the corner store -- darling).
Our experience with Haven in Paris was outstanding. Not only did they help us find the perfect apartment in Paris - they were helpful throughout our stay. We travel extensively - and rent apartments around the world - I have never had such wonderful service from an apartment rental firm. They could not have been more helpful. The apartment the recommended Rive Gauche - was beautiful and extremely comfortable. In a great art neighborhood full of restaurants and coffee/wine bars. Food was everywhere - any option you may have desired. I would highly recommend the services of Haven in Paris. They have many other outstanding properties. We look forward to our next visit in Paris - and using the services of Haven in Paris agin.
We are here to celebrate my 60th birthday. This is our second stay at your beautiful apartment. Love everything! Hope to be back next year. Thank you.
There are some good times to travel, some times to stay at home. Some times to confront fear, some times to hide. Paris this week has been sobering. The people remained positive. The army remained vigilant. The city charming but fearful. The future challenging but optimistic. Paris will survive the attacks on its people, but one cannot dismiss the tragic loss of young lives, of parents who will not have their children come home. God bless Paris & its people.
Rive Gauche is a fabulous apartment in a great location. After staying in an apartment I cannot imagine being happy with a hotel room. The kitchen is equipped for any level of cooking, the apartment is comfortable and stylish. I strongly recommend this apartment for 2 or 3 people.
We have spent two wonderful weeks at the apartment and are sadly packing to depart for Greece tomorrow. Have loved every minutes and would like to say to the owner that we appreciate you sharing your precious place with us. Wonderful books and art. Excellent equipment in the kitchen though not much used due to the fact that there are so many great restaurants in the area. Suffered the heat wave and so great to split the excursion and come “home” for lunch. Have been to Paris many time. This is the first time in an apartment and not a hotel. I am converted and would rebook. For next trip!! Have enjoyed eating at: Fish, Semilla, Procope. Always love St Germain and the gentleness of the area. Loved Luxembourg Gardens on Sunday. 7pm St Germain bells ringing as though to say “Au Revoir.”
My wife, two daughters, and I had a fabulous time at Rive Gauche. The apartment had everything you could possibly want and the location was excellent to walk the lovely streets of Paris. Erica and Loredana were instrumental in making our visit a trip of a lifetime. We look forward to returning and we will definitely be calling our friends at HIP to make some more memories.
Linda & I arrived at rue des Beaux Arts on June 10, 2015, which was the 45th year anniversary of the day we first met. What a wonderful neighborhood and apartment to stay and enjoy Paris. We have been blessed with ten days of perfect weather! We spent much of our free time enjoying gardens, museums and restaurants. We also recommend the private Context tour, "City Invented." Our guide was wonderful! The Opera Garnier was spectacular. We also enjoyed the VIP tour to Versailles. Most importantly we loved this neighborhood and living like Parisians for a few days, drinking wine, taking a leisurely pace, having croissants and fromage. Merci!
The apartment was just perfect for us! We love you guys! Can't wait to come again! :)
We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful apartment in a fabulous location. Loredana was incredibly helpful during our stay. A wonderful environment to celebrate our meeting in Paris 9 years ago. P.S. Thank you Vincent for all of your help, too!
The apartment has the perfect location for seeing Paris and for living- groceries, best croissants, good traiteur, good restaurants all nearby. It was spotless!
Everything was perfect---as always! Loredana was a wonderful greeter and David was right on time to pick me up from Orly. Another fabulous trip to Paris thanks to HIP. I will treasure my memories from this adventure. I look forward to working again with you soon.
As a first time user, didn't know what to expect, but Haven lived up to the hype - space was in a great location, of high quality and well-appointed. Our first time not staying in a high-end hotel, and we will repeat!
The property was very nice and very comfortable. We truly enjoyed our stay. Loredana was a pleasure and very friendly. She was on time for the arrival and we departed earlier than expected she was very flexible about meeting us. The flat was very clean when we arrived. The kitchen is well stocked and made the week very comfortable. We used the driver David Partouche who you recommended. He was fabulous! Doesn't speak a lot of English but enough to communicate just fine. He was very prompt and flexible. We utilized him twice. I can't say enough how wonderful you all were in helping make our trip a success. Thank you so much. The Haven staff never missed a beat. I was going to rent from another agency but because of your customer service, I decided to go with you and I was right to do so. I will certainly not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and I will certainly utilize you all again! Thank you.
Everything was fantastic! The apartment in St Germain was fabulous. Again the only little thing was that it was hot while there and there was no air-conditioning. The windows were able to be left open throughout the night providing relief. Loredana was a great greeter and waiting for us in the apartment on arrival at 9.30pm. She also booked a taxi for us on our departure date which we appreciated very much. The apartment was 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with a lovely living room and kitchen, including washing machine/dryer, dishwasher etc. Very modern and all in perfect condition. The lift was essential, although tiny as usual, being on the 4th floor. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and HIP. I look forward to my next visit and booking with HIP. We loved staying in an apartment just like the French live!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Rive Gauche apartment! It was so comfortable for us all. Sabrina was wonderful in checking us in and out. She was very helpful. We loved our driver Laurent. It was a wonderful trip. We will be in touch for the next time we come to Paris.
This was my second experience with HIP, and it was equally as good as the first, which is saying something! The communication during the rental process was absolutely excellent--there was always someone to answer my questions and i had many. They were patient and extremely informative, but not pushy in any way. When we finally chose an apartment, the information about the specific place was emailed early so we could get a head start on planning. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Sabrina, who had already been in contact prior to arrival, and answered additional questions and made recommendations. She was charming, helpful (spent an extra 15 minutes calling service to get the TV to work), and delightful, and available during the week for questions. The apartment was lovely although not as luxurious as the last one, but i was made aware of that fact specifically, prior to arrival. Large kitchen, big living room, and honestly the most comfortable beds on earth! The only hiccup was that our son got locked in one of the bathrooms and it took about 15 minutes to get him out-the old buildings and European fixtures are sometimes an issue (we ran into people at the Louvre who had the same thing happen in their apt, which they rented through another source). I cannot say enough about the service HIP provides, and my guess is there is not an unsightly apartment in their repertoire . I guess I'll just have to keep coming back to Paris and renting through them to make sure! I wouldn't think of using anyone else in Paris.
The Rive Gauche apartment is very comfortable and very well located for a stay in Paris. There are many great shops and restaurants nearby and it is just a short walk to the metro, bus, and taxis. I felt at home in the apartment immediately upon arriving. The Haven in Paris staff is a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process of reservation, arrival, and departure.
The Rive Gauche apartment is comfortable, well equipped and well located. Our stay was quite enjoyable. I would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again. The rental process was simple and the staff is great. Our greeter was very helpful and informative. We had a great visit in Paris and we found this apartment to be the perfect place to stay. The Rive Gauche apartment has everything that you would expect in a high end vacation rental.
