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 Odéon

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

As posted on on 1/28/17- “My wife and I stayed at this centrally located St. Germain loft for 3 nights. We absolutely loved it. Situated in possibly one of the very best parts of St. Germain this loft gave us access to everything Paris has to offer. Some of the most famous brasseries in Paris are minutes away. The loft was well equipped, although the dishwasher was not working at the time. Our host Susan (friend of Michelle) was so kind and friendly and helpful. We stayed during the coldest time of the year and she had already warmed the loft for us before we arrived. There were nice amenities like Nespresso and even a small bottle of wine. The bed was in the loft area and it is a small space and very cozy. We will definitely stay again. ”

Awesome central location next to the Seine, Notre Dame, Saint Michelle, & Saint Germaine!

I would easily repeat this location without any hesitation!

Thanks Michelle!

Loved the location!!!!

  • 4 of 5

The location was convenient, close to a metro entrance, tons of cafes, grocery store(3 stories!), 2 Starbucks right around the corner, many unique bookshops, and tons of other shops!

The rental was cozy and comfortable when we came back for rests between exploring the beautiful city.

My only suggestion is that the mattress and pillows are upgraded. The mattress is too firm, and there were only 3 flat pillows. For two people there should always be 4 pillows, and comfortable ones at that.

Overall, my husband and I had a wonderful get away and we look forward to our next trip to visit Paris :)

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location. Always felt safe and a vibrant life surrounding the area even late in the evening but with the window closed you didn't have to hear anything. The unit is very small and the bed at times tight but We really enjoyed our stay.

Super location, well appointed, charming and clean

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a mini vacation of 2-1/2 days to Paris and the description and photos of studio were accurate. We saw all the sights, including a evening boat cruise on the Seine. We had great customer service. Very comfortable beds and very easy instructions on how everything in apt worked, which was very helpful. The manager very kindly let us leave our luggage in apt, as we weren't departing Paris until 8pm. I would definitely recommend this listing!

Great place great location

  • 5 of 5

This place is in a great location. You get the feel of what it is like to live in Paris. Every time we run into Paris residents in the states and tell them where we stayed they are impressed because it is not a normal tourist area. We found the restaurants in this area to be much more affordable than other areas of Paris. The food was exceptional but has a more family feel to it which was good again for the experience. We walked everywhere, the tower and the tourist area across the river. There is a food market that we went to about 3 or 4 blocks around the corner for cooking in the apartment.

The apartment itself was great. Very secure and peaceful. You do not hear the city noise as it is in a center court yard. Controlled access from the street. Much better experience than staying in a hotel. I would stay here again.

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.

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.

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 (2 min walk away) is directly connected to the major train stations (Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est) as well as to the major hubs for airport transfers ( Saint-Michel Nôtre Dame, Châtelet).
