The neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-prés is located at the beating heart of the 6th arrondissement, right next to the Quartier Latin. It is Paris’s 24th administrative district.
This neighbourhood is not only home to numerous luxury boutiques; it also embodies the French literary scene all by itself. It is located at the very end of Rue de Rennes, around the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-prés. The district covers an area of 28 ha and has 4,817 inhabitants. Its northern border begins with the Seine River. It is, furthermore, wedged between Rue de Seine to the east, Rue du Four to the south and Rue des Saints-Pères to the west. Despite its size (the smallest neighbourhood in the arrondissement), it has many monuments to visit.
