Francine BERGER DUQUENE purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Francine BERGER DUQUENE chose Odéon

This is where we lived when we were students and hère se met. St Germain des Prés is the most lively place and the most 'fun' in Paris.

We bought this apartment, not to rent it but to live in when we come to Paris (3 or 4 months per year). It is therefore arranged for us, with all due care.

C'est l'endroit où nous avons vécu lorsque nous étions étudiants. C'est le quartier le plus vivant et le plus 'sympa' de Paris.

Nous avons acheté cet appartement, non pas pour le louer, mais pour y vivre quand nous venons à Paris, 3 ou 4 mois par an). Il est donc aménagé pour nous, avec tout le soin nécessaire.

What makes this apartment unique

5 minutes to go to the theater or one of the 13 cinemas closed to, between 20 and 30 restaurants in less than 150 m and so, even late at night, you can find restaurants open.

15 bus lines no more than 100m from the apartment to go everywhere in Paris (I give you the plans in the 'welcome book' to find how to go where you want)

2 metro lines at 50m, à 3rd one (direct to Roissy AirPort) at 150m

Shopping, shopping, shopping ... and the place is so alive, at any time of day, even at night ... but the apartment is so quiet!

5 minutes pour aller au théâtre ou à l'un des 13 cinémas à proximité et puis, même tard dans la nuit, n'importe où on peut trouver des restaurants ouverts.

15 lignes de bus à moins de 100 m pour aller partout dans Paris, je vous donne le plan de toutes les lignes dans le livre d'accueil

2 lignes de métro à la station Odéon à 50 m, une troisième ligne à 150m directe pour l'aéroport de Roissy

Shoping, shoping, shoping ... et l'endroit est si vivant, à tout moment de la journée, même de la nuit ... mais l'appartement est si calme!

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This charming, spacious apartment was perfect for our first time visit to Paris. Francine was so very responsive to any questions and even arranged for us to check in early due to a morning flight arrival. This was a huge help! We found a gift of a beautiful bottle to help celebrate our wedding anniversary. and appreciated it so very very much! The pictures capture the apartment well. It is extremely well equiped, and we especially appreciated the American style coffee pot! I loved the open beams and stone walls in addition to the large floor to ceiling windows with nodding geraniums outside! A large very detailed book about the apartment and Paris was very helpful and we used it often. Included is everything from directions to markets, patisserie, bistros, bus lines, métra, Tv directions, phone numbers, and local maps that were available for you to take with you and much more! Thank you! It was wonderful to know after a long day of sightseeing we had this gracious, welcoming space to come home to, and inviting comfortable bed on the quiet courtyard to give us a good night's sleep! It couldn't have been better. We loved having two sinks and also plentiful hot water. They've thought of everything, including robes, hair dryer, iron and board, an umbrella, and all basic kitchen needs. We loved stepping out onto the freshly washed sidewalk and street and feeling like we were part of the neighborhood! And what a neighborhood! The most picturesque square half a block away is edged by bistros spilling over with people enjoying a meal or drink outside. There's always something open. It provided our favorite meals and felt like coming home. It really couldn't have been better! We also were only a couple blocks from the Odeon Thestre and Luxumberg Gardens! Oh! I nearly forgot that there is an elevator, and a sweet lady who greets you upon arrival. Just couldn't have been more perfect. Thank You, Francine! We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Wonderful apartment in a gorgeous neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Francine's apartment. She was a wonderful host and was able to accommodate an early arrival and even an extension to our visit. She provided recommendations and directions for nearby markets, stores and restaurants in a binder located in the apartment.

The apartment itself is charming and perfectly located in one of the most upscale neighborhoods in Paris. Its central location is a short walk from beautiful Luxemborg Gardens, the Louvre and the D'orsay.

I highly recommend this property.

Spectacular -Location and Comfort!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are just back from a week's stay at this marvelous apartment. The location is ideal - an easy walk from the Luxembourg RER station which was a quick and easy trip from CDG. The Odeon Metro stop was also extremely convenient. Although the neighborhood is lively, the apartment itself was very quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinners out (Le Comptoir *****) Luzia was there to meet us and was not only welcoming but also helpful in showing us how to operate the TV and get ourselves connected to the Internet. The apartment is very big for Parisian standards and we thoroughly enjoyed having a dining room to enjoy the many French culinary treats that we would pick up during our travels. The boulangerie-patisserie of Gerard Mulot on rue de Seine was excellent! The separate living room provides plenty of space. The washer-dryer is a great addition. The apartment is nicely laid out so that if someone wants to sleep in, the other person would be able to make coffee and have a place to sit without disturbing the other. And there are fluffy white robes! The bathroom was big and the double sinks were appreciated. I am so happy to have found this spacious oasis of calm in my favorite Parisian neighborhood. We are already planning our next trip and look forward to staying here again. The owners, Alain and Francine were great to deal with and promptly responded to any of our emails. Highly recommended!!
