We have been in Paris for three weeks and we've not regretted electing to stay in St Germain. We're close to Rude Du Bac and Boulevard Raspail. This is a very trendy area with a lot to offer...... It's very close to some good bistros/brasseries, metro stations, high end department stores and smaller select clothing stores. Easy walking distance to... More

So much to see & do. Artists, restaurants, winding narrow cobblestones supporting gothic architecture! A dreamscape. Go there.

Wonderful area of Paris in close reach of many attractions. Great place for buying and seeing art works by local artists. Great for cafe's and churches. Good shopping area and a good all round area. Very pleasant at night.

I can not be more glad for choosing to stay in the Saint Germain district. Very close to supermarkets, shops, the metro, river Seine, the Louvre and there is an abundance of restaurants and bars. It has it's own feel and I have never experienced anything like it. It is very trendy and a great place to explore. Restaurants are... More

The cafe's here are famous. You can read about them. It is a place that will bring you back to earlier times. Times of culture and literary history. I suggest you walk up to the L Hotel and have lunch there. That is the last place Oscar Wilde lived. A historic place.

We rented an apt with our children in this neighborhood. It was a perfect location with great restaurants, bakeries and a nearby supermarche. Highly recommend the area.

We had a great experience strolling through this area and stopped for escargot and Nutella crepes- all delicious (at Cafe Louise to be precise). Good place to go when you don't have anything necessarily planned but want to be around people, restaurants, and shopping.
