Junior Suite - Botanical Garden


Your own cosy apartment in the once arty, now classy Latin Quarter. An elegant, romantic and peaceful bolthole for 2


1 bed


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


Provided you’re happy to climb to the third floor, Junior Suite is perfect on every score. Light pours in through tall windows, the bedroom faces a tiny street (traffic? You can barely hear it), the detailing is tip-top and everything’s folded, fluffed or shining. At 40m2, this flat is not large but it’s cleverly laid out and as homely as can be. Off a tiny hall is the living room – no sofa but comfy chairs at the dining table, and a fridge-and-microwave kitchenette – a small bathroom to the right and a delightful bedroom to the left. Beds (made up as a queen or two twins) are topped with feather pillows and lovely linen, there’s a large TV and books galore – including some fascinating old travel journals – a polished pine floor that has aged gracefully, and some elegant oriental antiques. Welcoming you with bathrobes, kimonos, extra towels, umbrellas, croissants and a bottle of wine is Belgian-born Catherine, generous, well-travelled and living on the fourth floor. She knows all the places to go, from restaurants and delis to Notre Dame and the Jardin des Plantes, two minutes away.

Charming flat in a safe and quiet location. Wonderful amenities, easy to walk to restaurants, bakeries and historic sites. Most importantly, lovely host to help with all of your needs to make your visit memorable.

Back home we think of Paris as an inspiration - and our appartment "chez Cathrine" was part of it! Annette (Hamburg) and I (Düsseldorf) could have chosen a very good hotel for our trip to Paris, but opening the door to the private space of a well furnished appartment, finding a good bottle of wine waiting for you, the discreete note at the door suggesting something you might be interested in - that all makes the difference! We found a very well maintained stylish interior and recommend it - no ifs and buts!!!

Irma, Düsseldorf

Loved our stay at Catherine's beautiful suite! The location was close to all of the sights, and the apartment was perfect for our needs, with a comfortable bed, well stocked kitchen with wonderful breakfasts and a nice bottle of wine. Catherine was the hostess with the mostess, providing lots of maps, recommendations and so very graciously did some laundry of ours. We highly recommend.

Nancy, Phoenix

We loved this suite, everything from the very comfortable bed, to the street view out over a window box full of red geraniums, to the well designed bathroom with an excellent shower. It's steps away from the Metro and in easy walking distance of Île St. Louis. Catherine met us when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. She also called a taxi for us when we left for the airport, and came downstairs at 6:30 am to make sure the driver knew exactly where we needed to go. Highly recommended.

Eve, Vancouver

We really enjoyed our stay in this great apartment. It is in a wonderful location to see the heart of Paris. The apartment was comfortable, bright and quiet. Catherine is a wonderful hostess and a lovely lady. Carol & Mark, Barrie, Canada

We loved everything about Catherine's suite, from the red flower boxes, décor to the comfortable bed, bottle of red wine, breakfast items, toiletries, extra towels - she's got it covered. You will not be disappointed. The location was great and within walking distance to Paris sights. Her map was informative providing tips on restaurants, open markets, and boulangerie. The food at Kokoro restaurant was excellent and cheese at Dubois Place Maubert was the best. We almost felt like locals. We plan to stay here again on our next trip to Paris.

Joslyn, Kailua

I am so glad that we booked with Catherine; my daughter and grand-daughter shared the room downstairs, and Catherine graciously offered her bed upstairs. Everything was perfect, comfy beds, hot water, great breakfasts(my grand-daughter will talk about the pain au chocolat forever, I am sure)..great location, and amazing hospitality. With the bus and metro steps from the building, there wasn't any place we couldn't reach easily. Catherine could not do enough for us - it was a great holiday. Merci bien, Catherine xx

We loved staying in this comfortable apartment. It made us feel as if we were really living in Paris, not just staying in a hotel. Fantastic location near transit, and easy walking distance to several attractions. Catherine was a very welcoming hostess, having maps and local information ready upon our arrival. Would definitely recommend this as a “ must stay “!

Dawn & dave, Novar, ontario, canada

Staying at Catherine's apartment was, for us, living a cool version of the French "art de vivre". This very well decorated apartment is the perfect Parisian "pied-à-terre", both for its centralized location and its warm, homely atmosphere. This was our 2nd stay and it was just as magical as the first. Merci Catherine et au plaisir! Paul et Régent

The apartment is perfectly located, cozy and clean. The bed is comfortable. Catherine is very friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend the flat to persons who are able to climb 4 stairs.

Steffen, Weissensberg

The apartment is very centrally located. Many interesting sights are within walking distance. The metro station is only 5 minutes away. The tasteful and clean apartment is very lovingly furnished. Everything you need for breakfast is available in organic quality. The bathroom is also spotlessly clean and everything works perfectly. Catherine is an extraordinarily friendly and likeable hostess. She is always responsive and has many great tips and recommendations for places of interest and restaurants. She's always very considerate. We would definitely rent this apartment again.

Adelheid, Stuttgart

Forget booking into a Paris hotel. This suite is an ideal alternate to the noisy 9th or 6th arr. where most visitors to Paris end up. Its a short walk from prime Paris sites: 15 min. to Notre Dame, and the Blvd.Saint Michel cafes, 5 min. from the best street market in Paris on Rue Mouffetard but still in a very quiet neighborhood. Our 5-day July visit to Paris was a delight. Catherine provided surprises we haven’t found in other apartment rentals: baguette, wine, fruit, stocked refrigerator and daily breakfast makings. The apartment is meticulously decorated and has a beautifully bath.

Mike, Madison

Philippe, London

Very lovely cosy elegant flat ,located in the heart of the left bank of Paris . Nice lady to welcome you and guide through the good adresses of Paris . Tube is 1 minute walk! Perfect for a romantic break in Paris

Philippe, London

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights in Catherine’s very comfortable, well appointed apartment. Located on the third floor the flat is more spacious than we thought from the website. Everything is clean and works. Catherine was extremely helpful with all our queries. She replied promptly to our request about availability and sent us detailed instructions as to how to find the apartment. She booked us into 2 great little local restaurants for our evening meals and there was plenty of food provided for breakfasts. The purchase of the GF bread was appreciated. We will definitely go back!

Lizzie, Cambridge

We had stayed with Catherine for 5 nights, Catherine is the best host I've ever met. Catherine helped us everything we need. We love the way Catherine organize the flat, cosy and comfortable. Catherine's flat is now our home in Paris. We would definitely come back to again!

Josie, Taipei

A very comfortable flat very well situated on the South Bank. Catherine, the owner, could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Anyone looking for a good base from which to explore Paris should look no further.
