Why Pary Weinberg chose Odéon

Paris will be always Paris. The 6th arrondissement is arguably the most Parisian district in Paris. It's centrally located, with easy access to Versailles, Fontainebleau, Giverny and the Monet Garden, the airport, train stations, with myriads of cafés, shops, bookstores, museums, galleries, restaurants, clubs, wine stores, antique shops, supermarkets, etc...

What makes this apartment unique

We love that we can go shopping and sightseeing and come back to the apartment to rest before heading out again. It's so easy and convenient! We are also very fond of 'our garden', the Luxembourg where we like to sit, read, talk or visit with our friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed Paris' neighborhoods, shops, food and wine, and people while "living" at this convenient, spacious apartment. Pary made this first experience with VRBO a very positive one before we left home, and Franck was a wonderful resource, and very helpful and respectful while there. The St. Germain area was fabulous!

Lovely flat in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Rue Madame. The apartment is conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, the Luxembourg Gardens and easy transportation .

The flat comes with everything you would expect from a home away from home. There is even a portable air-conditioning unit for those rare hot days in Paris and a Nespresso machine with a full sleeve of coffee!

Pary and Lewis were wonderful. Lewis met me early as our flight arrived at 9:30 in the morning. We will definitely be coming back.

Quaint top-floor apartment in one of the best neighborhoods in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this lovely apartment just a block away from the Jardin du Luxembourg. The owners were very responsive and willing to answer all of our questions before leaving the U.S., including letting us stop by the apartment early (we arrived on an early morning flight) and drop off our luggage before the official check-in time. The apartment itself has a lot of amenities that are not common in Paris -- an elevator (so helpful for heavy luggage), air-conditioning (a portable unit that worked very well to keep the apartment nice and cool during 90F degree days), a large shower, reliable wifi, microwave, etc. We did not use the dishwasher, washing machine or stove, but it is a nice option for anyone staying longer. Our favorite part about this apartment is the location -- across the street from Bread & Roses bakery, a 1 minute walk to the Luxembourg Gardens, and walking distance to many of Paris' most desirable restaurants, cafes, shopping, and other sites. Thanks Pary and Lewis for a wonderful visit and for your hospitality!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in this gorgeous apartment for three months in 2015 while taking French classes and trying to finish my novel. The hardest part was leaving and wondering if I'd ever be able to come back and if I had to stay elsewhere, how would it ever measure up? The apartment is charming, spacious, and bright, the bedroom cozy and comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen are tasteful and have every modern convenience. At one point i needed the toilet repaired and the owner came and fixed it himself. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience here--the location is wonderful, the apartment feels very safe and homey, the location of the park and groceries, etc, made it the experience of a lifetime. If I can visit again in 2016, I will. If my novel ever gets published, it will have a bit of Paris at it's core. Thank you P and L and best wishes for 2016.

A Jewel in the 6th

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent eight nights in this welcoming and comfortable, superbly located apartment. Situated a block from the exquisite Luxembourg Gardens, it is also within a fifteen minute's walk, or less, from a host of fine, well-priced neighborhood restaurants, three markets, and two separate metro lines, not to mention across the street from an all-too-tempting bakery/café. We love to explore neighborhoods, and this apartment allows for so many enjoyable options--down the Blvd. Raspail, the gallery-rich Rue Bonaparte or Rue de Seine, the Rue de Sevres with its shops, or through the Luxembourg to Montparnasse. The apartment itself was an integral part of our enjoyable stay. Warm and cozy, with a comfortable bed and sofa, modern, fully-equipped kitchen, a terrific shower with instantaneous hot water, and heaters that worked perfectly to take the morning chill off, as well as free wifi and phone, it was a pleasurable oasis from which to launch our day and in which to end it. And we cannot imagine better, more caring, responsive, friendlier owners--thoroughgoing professionals. Thank you for a delightful stay!

A wonderful apartment in a wonderful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this apartment is! Elevator to top floor is a special plus and then you open the door to a sun- filled, airy, quiet and "spacious" (by Paris standards) place. It feels like an artist's studio with floor to (high) ceiling windows overlooking a quiet courtyard (and Parisian rooftops). The well equipped kitchen, free wifi and phone, comfortable couch and a very cozy bed make it a joy to come "home" to. It is also perfectly located a block away from Luxembourg gardens in what I think is the best arrondissement in Paris. Close enough to access all the great sights but in the midst of a safe, lovely, peaceful neighborhood. The owners are great - easy to work with and so nice! I have had the pleasure of staying in this apartment several times and always look forward to the next time...

Perfect Location in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from ten days in this lovely apartment. The building is perfectly located, close to all transportation and wonderful neighborhood shops and places to relax over afternoon tea. The best part is the proximity to Luxembourg Gardens. We spent many afternoons walking and people watching in our favorite location. We visit Paris every November-December and this was our most relaxing trip. Maysa, the local agent was gracious and full of information. We are looking forward to our trip next year now that we feel we have our own neighborhood. Thank you, Pary and Lew - we love your home away from home. Joyeux Noel - Paula and Mark
