If you’re anything like us, simply hearing the word Paris conjures up romantic images of chic boutiques, sidewalk cafés, and picnics on the canal. Oh, and let’s not forget about French cuisine in all of its rich, decadent glory. Paris is one of those captivating cities that draws you in and makes you fall deep, deeply in love with its art, history, and culture.

Amidst our search for a dreamy abode in The City of Light, we came across this beauty in Saint-Germain-des-Prés – a bohemian retreat-turned-destination for couture window-shopping and catered relaxation.
