I am so lucky to be living in a city I love. Six years ago, Paris was the one thing that helped me make the huge switch, leaving behind a promising consulting practice and the tranquil suburban life. Life in France has been filled with more ups than downs. The list of things I love keeps extending, started out with the basics: chocolate and photography. Now adding on are those early mornings along the Seine, the fall colors in the Bois de Boulogne, or the Louvre in the quiet evenings, picnic on Île St-Louis…. And yet, how can I forget the people. That is where I have learned again to cherish the true meaning of love and friendship...

Michelle purchased this apartment in 2012

We invite you to LIVE LIKE A LOCAL in our quarter. Whether you are walking in between the ancient buildings down the narrow streets dotted with historical markers, browsing at the boutique shops which all look like a “museum” of their specialties, or mixing in with the college profs and students in a café nearby, do slow down and enjoy the aroma of the buttery pastries, listen to the surrounding melodic voices, watch the people embrace and kiss, and sink yourselves into the true Parisian life.

Staying at our studio, the Carrefour de l'Odéon is your own living room with so many choices of people watching spots, just a couple of steps from your door. And ...waiting in line to dine at the renowned Le Comptoir is never an issue!

The mezzanine provides a separate sleeping quarter that is private and cozy. It is actually a big plus for a compact size studio, as you can slip into the living room with your coffee in the morning without having to look at a messy bed. ;-)

Memories of a Lifetime in the 6th

My sister and I have been planning for a girl's trip with our daughters for several years. We could not have chosen a better place to stay than Michelle's apartment near Odeon. From the start of our planning, Michelle was extremely helpful and accommodating. We weren't sure if one of us would arrive a day earlier than the other and Michelle was willing to hold the apartment for an extra day while we were finalizing our plans.

Michelle welcomed us to Paris and her apartment with fruit, wine and coffee. We were welcomed like guests! Her apartment is tiny, but that is expected in Paris. My husband and I visited Paris in 2010 and stayed in a very nice hotel that was tiny as well.

Despite the size of the apartment, it is equipped with everything you could want during your visit. We went to the grocery store and cooked omelets one morning. We also bought a delicious quiche from Gerard Mullot and warmed it in the microwave for another delicious breakfast in Paris. What a joy to enjoy a delicious espresso each morning in our PJs! I plan to buy the same espresso machine for myself.

The apartment is in the perfect location. Very walkable to Notre Dame, Cluny, Pantheon, St. Sulpice, Luxembourg Gardens. A bit further but still walkable to Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Tuileries, Bon Marche. When our feet were tired, we had very easy access to Metro, RER, and bus routes. The area around the apartment is great for wandering and looking at little shops.

I was able to talk to my husband and family using the apartment phone. In addition, we were able to access email and internet with wifi in the apartment.

One evening, we met Michelle near Eiffel Tower. She showed us a great location for photos and we chatted in a cafe. Michelle also gave us a recommendation for a street market near Place Monge.

In the evenings, we heard the musician playing outside Le Comptoir. For one week, we felt like residents of Paris! Many thanks to Michelle for her hospitality and great apartment! If I have a chance to go back, I will be staying in the same apartment.

Beautiful little apartment in the heart of Paris

This cute apartment is situated right in downtown Paris within perfect walking range of a huge variety of sights and amenities. Sure it is small, but you are in Paris! And the apartment comes with a small kitchen, sitting area, bathroom and even a laundry machine! So much better than a hotel, you feel that you are somehow, part of the community. Michelle was very accommodating with local information.

What a gem we found!

  • Stayed: Oct 2013
When planning our trip to Paris, my wife and I looked at all sort of hotels to potentially stay in. Nothing could be found that we liked enough to say, that's where we'll stay, so we started looking at short-term stays in an apartment. When we found this studio apartment, we immediately said "This is it!"

From the initial call to me here in the United States from Michelle to our final checkout everything went so smoothly. She called me just a few hours after I had sent an inquiry about the availability of the week we were planning on coming (already had the plane tickets).

Form that point on I knew that we would have a great stay, and that we did.

Michelle greeted us at the studio bright and early upon our arrival and had stocked the place with wine, orange juice, water and some fresh fruit.

The apartment is located close to everything you'll want to do in Paris. Just a few minute walk to Notre Dame, the Seine and the metro. A bit longer walk to the Louvre, Musee d'Orsey and so of the other sites in Paris.

If anyone asks me for a recommendation as to where to stay while in Paris, the is going to be the only one I give!

PERFECT LOCATION

From the start, we knew that we would be happy here. Much of that had to do with Michelle's help. She responded to our inquiry very rapidly - always a good sign!

We really enjoyed this little studio. We found that the photographs and description provided were very accurate. Every square inch of space is well-appointed. All of the amenities we needed were there. The Nespresso coffee machine and the welcome basket and bottle of wine were much appreciated.

That there was no elevator was not a problem for us. Anyone with mobility difficulties would need to consider this. The bedroom's location is also in the mezzanine. The couch does have a pull-out bed.

The apartment was very clean. Bedding and towels were new. An excellent quality hair dryer was available. The combination washer and dryer was useful for shirts and underwear.

With such a great location comes city noise. And it is true that there is a bar on the first floor (more of a get-together place, no loud music). We got around this by closing the window and using the two fans provided to create a background noise. We slept very soundly, and I am a light sleeper.

We walked everywhere! The metro and RER stations are very close. There are countless restaurants in every price range, coffee shops, bakeries, and grocery stores. The St. Germain market is a short walk away.

We would definitely recommend this listing to couples. It was perfect for two.

Our First Visit to Paris

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
This review is written not to critique but to enlighten as you prepare for your visit to Paris.

My wife and I stayed at this location 8/28/13 – 8/31/13.

What we found was the following:
1. Michelle greeted us with the hospitality of coming into someone’s home. She had water, juice, fruit and a bottle of wine. Her assistance with questions was excellent. WiFi and phone worked great.
2. The unit was clean. It is well located and appears to be a safe area.
3. If you are not using Euros do not count on exact amount of your currency coming back to you as values change. I lost $ 24.97 in US dollars when deposit was returned.
4. Do not count on washer/dryer combo as a selling point. Does not perform that well.
5. Loft area is small, used like a crawl space. Small steps leading up to area.
6. Overall unit is small. Windows are used for ventilation.
7. 36 stairs to unit from street some of which are in a spiral fashion and small. Very hard with any luggage.
8. Unit is above a bar. 1st night noise improved at 1 am, 2nd night at 3 am, 3rd night at 2:30 am. If you enjoy nightlife this is the place.
9. You are convenient to metro.
10. We used a restaurant across the main street as there are many in area. Shop them for best pricing.

100m from Metro Odeon***

Our studio is located on rue Monsieur Le Prince (Odéon), in the heart of the Latin Quarter, a safe and prestigious neighborhood that is famous for its Parisian eateries, theaters, and boutique shops. It is within walking distances to most touristic and cultural attractions, like the Notre Dame, Saint Germain des Pres church, Luxembourg Garden, Saint Sulpice church, the Panthéon, the Invalides, Musée d'Orsay, or the Sorbonne..., just too numerous to mention. The Louvre Museum or Hôtel de Ville, on the other side of the Seine river, is a 10-15 minute romantic walk through the cobblestone streets. We have taken a few pictures of the immediate neighborhood to give you the real appreciation of the location.

Public transportation is the most convenient with steps away from 6 bus lines and metro stations, which are also the easy and cost-effective connections to and from the airports and train stations. Metro station Odéon (100m away) is on line 4 which connects to train stations (Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est) as well as to the major hubs for airport transfers ( Saint-Michel Nôtre Dame, Châtelet).
