An 18th century Parisian mansion in the heart of the Latin Quarter, Maison de la Revolution is a city gem with its verdant garden and heated swimming pool, just a short stroll from Le Panthéon in Paris’ enchanting 5th arrondissement.

This is not just any Parisian holiday rental, it is an authentic family home which has been completely renovated in recent years. Elegantly furnished, the vast reception room and beautiful kitchen feature characterful French windows leading straight out to the garden whilst the cinema room downstairs is sure to appeal with its Smart TV and Xbox. Across the top three floors, five inviting bedrooms sleep up to 8 adults and 1 child including an impressive master king-size double that spans across the whole of the first floor with its own decked terrace.

This is high-end living in the heart of Paris, yet what makes this historic maison especially unique is its heated swimming pool set in the delightful garden surrounded by trees – a true urban oasis. As you listen to the neighbourhood bells ring, dine al-fresco by the barbecue, no doubt enjoying some wonderful food picked up from the many gourmet shops on famous Rue Mouffetard, one of Paris’ oldest streets.

Be sure to stop off for a coffee on nearby Place de la Contrescarpe, one of Paris’ most charming squares and a much-loved spot in the Latin Quarter. Make the most of local restaurants and bars, soaking up the student vibe with the Sorbonne so near or take a stroll to Jardin du Luxembourg and perhaps the iconic cafes of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

Experience the romance of Pont Neuf, get lost in Île de la Cité by Notre Dame and walk across to Le Marais with its historic lanes, trendy stores and exciting museums including the Pompidou Centre.

Amble or cycle along the Seine’s new promenade passing gardens, pétanque courts and playgrounds – from the Musée d'Orsay to the Eiffel Tower, this is a wonderful way to admire some of the classic sights of this magnificent city.

Maison de la Revolution is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, under a 5-minute stroll from the Panthéon in the heart of the much-loved Latin Quarter on the left-bank. The nearest metro station (line 7) is just over 500m away.

This is a fantastic neighbourhood with an authentic ambience. As well as several city supermarkets around a 5-minute walk away, the bustling Rue Mouffetard, one of Paris’ oldest streets, is a short stroll away with excellent boulangeries selling organic bread and specialist pastries, a number of cheese mongers and other wonderful food shops offering fish, meat and organic produce. Not to mention a superb range of restaurants – this quarter is known for its atmospheric restaurants, inviting bars and overall student vibe with the Sorbonne being close by.

As well as Place du Panthéon so near, one of Paris’ most charming squares, Place de la Contrescarpe, is a couple of minutes away with its pretty fountain and lively cafes and restaurants, a much-loved spot in the Latin Quarter. Then there’s the wonderful gardens of Paris – the Jardin du Luxembourg is a 10-minute walk away whilst Jardin des Plantes is only 800m heading east.

Follow the footsteps of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simon de Beauvoir amongst others in the 6th arrondissement, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, easily reached on foot. Alternatively, wander over to Île de la Cité and Notre Dame, 1.5km away, and then on to Le Marais, a historic quarter of Paris with trendy stores, amazing restaurants as well as the Picasso National Museum and Le Centre Pompidou. Pick up delicious falafel from Rue des Rosiers, then head back towards the Seine and find a pretty place to perch near Île Saint-Louis.

Then of course there’s the major sights of this grand city from the Eiffel Tower and Musée d'Orsay to the Louvre, Jardin Des Tuileries and Place de la Concorde. Continue along Avenue de Champs-Élysées, passing impressive stores such as Galeries Lafayette and other high-end shops, then hop on a metro to the modern La Défense, the end of the Axe Historique.

The enchantment of Montmatre should also be experienced. Step away from Place du Tertre and Sacré-Cœur to get lost in the warren of cobbled lanes and steps across the romantic 18th arrondissement. On the way back, stop off for a coffee in the fashionable Canal Saint-Martin district.

As well as a great city transport system, there are some brilliant walks and jogging routes, either through the many gardens or along the Seine. Passing Quai Saint Bernard and the Jardin des Plantes, reach the Docks en Seine in the 13th arrondissement, a newly created cultural centre with rooftop bars, clubs and art exhibitions. For more classic surroundings, amble along the riverside promenade in Rives de Seine Parc, a UNESCO World Heritage site with a number of park activities for every age.

    Great location. Cool part of town. Close to
    everything and cool neighborhood. Awesome oasis
    inside Paris. Felt like we were in the Hamptons
    while relaxing in the courtyard. Great owner and
    family who greeted us and made our stay
    comfortable.

    Beautiful house, fantastic communication and perfect location alongside zero noise at all from anywhere. Would definitely stay again.

  • Fantastic house

    on 10/08/2019

    Fantastic house. Decorated with great taste. Extremely quiet. It was great to be able to relax in a private yard, in total silence, in the center of Paris. The host was fantastic.

  • A quiet oasis in the heart of the city

    on 27/07/2019

    After a day of sight-seeing in Paris, what a joy to come home to Maison de la Revolution! Relaxing on the patio in the green, tree-lined yard, watching the youngsters play in the pool--it’s truly a quiet, hidden oasis in the heart of the city. Inside, the house is well-appointed and comfortable, with many amenities and plenty of spaces for a large family to eat, read, watch TV, and chat. The location is superb, within easy walking distance of bus and Métro lines and two blocks away from rue Mouffetard with its cafés and nightlife and its bustling fresh-food shops. We (a multigenerational family of 10) are delighted that we found this spacious house, with its pleasant, regenerative courtyard, for our Paris vacation.

  • Breathtaking!

    on 05/09/2018

    The house and its location are breathtaking. Breathtaking!! Our stay was magical from the moment we arrived until we unfortunately left! The house is spotless, very comfortable, and tastefully furnished with
    everything you need. Marie is a hostess with answers to every question and a list of great things to do in the area.
