About Michelle

It has been our great pleasure welcoming travelers from all over the world who have come with the common passions for this extraordinary City. Being avid travelers ourselves, we take pride in providing our guests all the important elements of a successful vacation: from the tireless customer service which starts within minutes of your inquiry, to when you are personally greeted at the door upon arrival, and knowing we will always be one phone call away. Our place is clean, safe, ideally located, and loaded with all the comforts of home. We can't wait to share...


Michelle purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Michelle chose 6th Arrondissement St Germain des Pres

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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. ;-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Posted on, June 20, 2016

My partner and our 18-year-old niece just stayed here for 5 nights. Everything went very smoothly from the initial contact with Michelle to getting the security deposit returned. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and in a great location. If you are someone who travels with a ton of luggage or is not comfortable with small spaces, you might want to look elsewhere. However, unless you're willing to pay a lot more, I think the size of this place is typical. I have already recommended it to two other friends going to Paris. We are looking forward to staying here when we return!

Pretend you really live in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an excellent stay at Monsieur le Prince studio! We truly felt as though we were Parisians. We have visited Paris many other times, but the opportunity to stay in an apartment made this Paris experience much more personal. The location is perfect, steps away from the Metro and, very important, a velib station, as well as multiple cafes, restaurants and shops. The studio is small and has limited storage space but its charm makes up for that. Michelle is a genius at anticipating whatever her clients might need. I was very impressed at the alacrity with which Michelle responds to any communication or handles any problem. You get more than an apartment, you get a concierge!

We can't wait to return and will gleefully refer any friends and family to stay at this lovely abode.

Excellent Studio in the heart of Saint Germain

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this charming apartment for 10 days in late March 2016. From the beginning stages of booking the apartment to the arrival as well as during our stay and departure, the owner Michelle and her colleague Susana were extremely helpful. Michelle made the rental process simple and straightforward. Her quick response to our many questions was sincerely appreciated.

Upon arrival, Susana met us at the studio and provided a tour and walked us through using all of the appliances as well as a good understanding of the neighborhood and nearby metro system. The apartment is well equipped with everything you could need or want. The kitchen is well equipment and we were able to cook several dinners using the cook stove, oven, etc. We loved the use of space in this studio and appreciated all of the little extras that Michell has provided (including a Nepresso coffee maker and complimentary bottle of wine). The washer / dryer was a huge bonus as well. The apartment is small - as is 90% of the apartments in Europe. However, this studio features everything you could need for a couple or a small family of four including a comfortable pull out couch/bed. The loft bed above the kitchen was extremely comfortable.

The location of this studio is phenominal! It is located nearby many cafes and restaurants, within one block to the metro, as well as Velib bicycle stands and banks/ATM machines. St. Germain is extremely charming with the Pont Neuff Bridge located just a few short blocks away. We did not experience any issues with noise from the nearby cafes or bars at night.

We highly recommend this apartment - and will definitely be booking again on our next visit to Paris. Thanks Michelle and Susana - for making our first visit to Paris so enjoyable and memorable! Brad & Marilyn

Wonderful stay in Paris - Thank you Michelle!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Paris and stayed in this darling apartment from March 18th through March 28th 2016. The owner Michelle made the arrangements very simple and was always very quick to answer our many questions. When we arrived in Paris, we were met by Susana (Michelle's colleague) at the apartment. Susana escorted us through the apartment and explained how everything functioned. There is also a very imformative booklet that provides instructions on how to operate everthing in the apartment, including the television, Nespresso coffee maker, washer/dryer, dishwasher and more. It also provides some wonderful recommendations on restaurants, and contact numbers for taxi service etc. The added hospitality of a lovely bottle of wine was a wonderful way to welcome us!

The apartment is small, but it was perfectly suited to our needs and no smaller than many of the apartments in Paris. The bed (located in the loft above the kitchen) was very comfortable. My husband is 6'2" tall and prior to arrival, I had worried that it may be difficult for him to rest. That was not the case. We slept soundly & confortably in the loft bed. The neighborhood is quiet at night. There is a bar located a few doors down from the apartment. However, we never experienced any noise related to this bar. I can also report that as of March 28th - the bar that had been located directly below the apartment is still closed and has a "for-sale" sign on the door.

There is the typical noise that is found from living in an apartment building with neighbors living close by. But this is to be expected.

The location of Michelle's apartment could not be more perfect. Less than a block from the Metro, and a few short blocks to Pont Du Neuff Bridge. We found the metro system very easy to use and extremely convenient. However, we also did A LOT of walking during our visit. We wanted to soak in the city on foot as much as possible. Pre-dosing with some Aleve each day, was an enormous help as we are in our early 50's and expected to experience some aching joints!

St. Germain was extraordinary and we highly recommend this apartment. It is conveniently located to many local wine bars, great restaurants, banks - ATM, velib bike stands, taxi stands and of course, the Metro.

We will recommend this apartment to family and friends that are visiting Paris. Michelle and Susana are perfect hosts! Thank you very much!

Paris' best location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this apartment! We loved it so much last year that we booked it again for our most recent trip. Both Michelle and Susan were extremely responsive to our questions.

Our stay at this apartment was optimal for us due to its close proximity to many wonderful local restaurants, boutiques, pastry shops and museums. The location is a convenient two minute walk to the Odeon Metro station where the excitement of the Bouldevard Saint-Germain-des-Pres awaits. If you want the feeling of being right in the middle of what makes Paris the world's finest and most alluring city in the world then this space is perfect for you.

This apartment is very cozy despite it's compact size. That was not an issue. I have to say that hotel rooms in Paris are very compact too! The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to fix a quick meal. With the windows closed, you barely hear any noise from the hustle and bustle of the area when you are up in the loft where the bedroom is.

Keep in mind that it is on the second floor and there are no elevators. Again, it was not an issue for us.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

We are a couple in our 60s visiting Paris for the first time.


This apartment is the perfect location in so many ways...less than 50 metres from L'Odeon Metro station meant we were minutes to everywhere. But the location is so close to everything, we found we could walk to most of our intended destinations, which did include all the Paris "icons" such as Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Champs Elysees, Notre Dame and more. A taxi rank is also only 50 metres away and the Saint Germain market, patisserie, wine store and small supermarket were only 100 metres. The apartment is surrounded by many cafes, bars and restaurants - and from here you can also 'shop till you drop".


Michelle provides almost everything. Free telephone calls, free Internet/WiFi, television (but who watches when on holidays), washer/dryer, dishwasher, even some provisions such as toilet paper, soaps, coffee, tea and a complementary bottle of wine. The shower is wonderful. The only issues we encountered were a lack of hanging space for clothes and cupboards which were only reachable via a step ladder which is inconvenient.

Other reviewers have highlighted this but you must be aware that the apartment is on the second floor and (as we are on an extended European holiday), we struggled with our luggage. Other reviewers have mentioned a noise issue from a bar downstairs - but we can report, that as of September 2015, the bar is closed and appears to have relocated further into the Latin Quarter. We slept with the window open every night and whilst there was the neighborhood noise from cafes etc, we had no issue at all. The apartment also comes with a sofa bed although we reckon that 4 people would find it a tight squeeze. The space is compact but Paris apartments are small and we spent most of our time out and about.

In summary; the description of the apartment is accurate, the service provided by the owner is very good as is the email communication - we even spoke by phone beforehand which provided a good level of comfort as one is handing over the full payment prior to commencement. The price point is good value - we think Michelle could charge more after a 'refresh' of the apartment.

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
Charles de Gaulle, Orly
Nearest Train
3 Miles
Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est, Gare Saint Lazare
Car: not necessary

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).
