Rue de Sèvres and Rue du Cherche Midi are lined with bakeries, pastry shops, butchers, greengrocers, caterers, wine merchants, cheese and chocolate emporia, as well as supermarkets, dry cleaners and laundromats.
There are two open-air markets along Boulevard Raspail, between Rue de Sèvres and Rue de Rennes. One of them is a "Marche Biologique" featuring organic produce (des fruits et legumes "bio") on Sundays. Only two minutes away, La Grande Epicerie de Paris, located inside the Bon Marché store, offers fine French specialty foods as well as exotic delicacies from around the world.
There are a variety of restaurants in the area, from the healthy and affordable to the chic Brassérie Lutetia, the trendy l’Epi Dupin, or the classic French restaurant La Marlotte. Le Bon Marché department store is two blocks away, surrounded by scores of shops and boutiques in the St-Germain-des-Prés quarter.
The rue de Vaugirard leads directly to the Luxembourg Garden where you can enjoy the sun and stroll among the sculptures. A quiet park with children’s playground is three blocks from the apartment. Prominent landmarks within walking distance include the national theater at Odéon, the churches of Saint Germain and Saint Sulpice, and the Paris Observatory.
Nearby museums include the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Musée Rodin, the Delacroix Museum, and the Cluny Museum with its fabulous medieval collection.
This apartment was wonderful. Its location cannot be beat, in a real neighborhood with local stores, Bon Marché, many upscale stores, and access to a major metro stop, plus several bus routes. The additional books and maps, especially the large one on the wall, were all very helpful.

Yesterday we came home from Paris, what a fantastic time! We fell in love with the apartment; it was so bright with the two big windows. We slept like roses in the beds and there was a really good shower. When I come back to Paris --I hope my husband and son will join me-- I will use your agency again. I'm telling all my friends that the agency is perfect. Thank you and your team for the wonderful time I had with my mother in Paris.
