Francine BERGER DUQUENE purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Francine BERGER DUQUENE chose Paris Arr. 6 (Latin Quarter, St. Germain)

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!

A comfortable and spacious apartment on a quiet street

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Francine's well-situated, comfortable and well-equipped apartment. The Breizh creperie on the corner is terrific too!

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!!

Near perfection

  • 5 of 5

Nothing is perfect, but this apartment is very close. It is in great shape, very spacious and exceptionally clean. The bedroom is quite large with shower attached. It has a separate dining room and a very roomy living area with a comfortable pull out sofa/bed. Off of the living room is a small lavatory. TV, stereo and excellent wifi service are all included. A small kitchen has all of the needed amenities.

The location could not be any better. The apartment is very quiet, set back off a side street, but very close to Blvd. St. Germain, the Odeon Metro station, The Odeon Theater, movie theaters and everything the Left Bank has to offer. It is very walkable to many Parisian highlights. Getting anywhere in Paris is quite easy from here.

The owner was extremely responsive to any questions we had. My family & I could not have been more pleased and will definitely stay there again when we next have the opportunity to visit Paris. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to this wonderful city.

A thoroughly enjoyable week

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming apartment in a great location in the 6th arr. It's probably the largest one bedroom apartment I have ever seen in central Paris.

I found the apartment comfortable and "homey." I especially enjoyed sampling Francine's CD collection since her taste is somewhat different from mine.

While the apartment itself is really quite nice, I think a bigger selling point may be the location -- at least for some renters. It's a short walk to St. Sulpice, Notre Dame, Luxembourg Gardens; other favorite sites are a short subway or bus ride away. However, it's worth noting that even though it's close to everything, the neighborhood and apartment were amazingly quiet.

Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable week.
