Our hotel in the 6th arrondissement
puts Saint-Germain-des-Prés at your feet.
From the entrance of the Hotel Perreyve, it’ll only take you a couple of minutes on foot to reach the famous Place de Saint-Germain-des-Prés via Rue Madame and Rue Bonaparte, which are full of beautiful townhouses and fashion boutiques. Don’t miss the Saint-Suplice church with its two towers, one of the Parisian locations featured in Dan Brown’s 2003 best-seller novel “The Da Vinci Code”.
When you get to the square, head to the Café de Flore or Les Deux Magots for some people-watching, or go to the Saint Germain des Prés church. The oldest church in Paris, it celebrated its 1000th anniversary in 2014, but its foundations date back even further to 543. The church regularly plays host to classical music and jazz concerts. Here, you can live like a poet, recalling the happy
Right next door is the Place de Furstenberg, a small gem planted with paulownias, is a magnificent, intimate place perfect for passing an hour or two away. The Musée national Eugène Delacroix, who lived here from 1857, can be found at 6 Rue de Furstenberg.
A bit further away lies the left bank of the Seine, exclusively for pedestrians, and the Pont des Arts, which offers the perfect setting for a romantic stroll.
Another destination at the heart of Saint-Germain, this time for shopping, is Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, just 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel. Located on Rue de Sèvres, it was the first department store in Paris and the inspiration behind Emile Zola’s classic “The Ladies’ Delight”. Founded in 1852 by Marguerite and Aristide Boucicaut (a metro station bears their name), it is today one of Paris’ most exclusive department stores. Its sister food store, La Grande Epicerie, is a must-see for all food lovers!
