Just like any other of the world's major cities, it's all about location, location, location. And your Paris apartment has one of the best locations in town! Welcome to the stylish and elegant home to Paris’ bourgeoisie, Saint-Germain-des-Prés/Odéon! What better place to play during your Paris stay?
Step outside, and you'll be standing in one of Paris' historical lane ways. Just opposite is the oldest cafe in Paris, Le Procope - Napoleon's favorite! A whiff away is Boulevard Saint-Germain and its café lifestyle, made famous in the 40s and 50s by writer Jean-Paul Sartre, Hemmingway, Orwell and other existentialists. The neighborhood has preserved the cafés where they philosophized and added plenty of new ones that now overflow with trendy, upscale young professionals who toast each other with glasses of divine French wine.
Shopping & Night Life - ooh-la-la!
If you're shopping for answers, you have the right address! Luxury designer stores and smaller boutiques are literally just around the corner. And the stylish denizens of Saint Germain take great care to look fashionable both day and night, which makes for some great people-watching. An excellent selection of lively pubs and swanky bars and lounges provides a nighttime vibe that ranges from casual chic to upscale.

Supermarket, Fitness Center/Gym, Butcher, Bakery, Drugstore
I love cats and dogs but they tend to make lots of mess so, sorry, not pets. And please, not smoking inside.
Exquisite hand painted wall paper, so delicious, you'll want to like (but please don't). The mirror's quite nice too!
Camille's flat is possibly one of the most uniquely beautiful I've seen in Paris - and I used to live there! Camille is equally unique as a host - unique in his welcoming, fun, helpful and kind nature. Our post-trip chat centred on how in a parallel life we would like to live in his flat and be his best friend :) Anyone staying here will undoubtedly love it.
The property was even better than we had expected. The location is perfect for everything, metro links, supermarket, restaurants, shops and within walking distance to many local attractions including the delightful Jardin du Luxembourg if you want outside space.
Camille met us at the prearranged location and took the time and trouble to show us round his property explaining any important details.
The property itself is equipped with every modern convenience and the wifi was easy to access. We particularly enjoyed watching the world go by from the windows opening onto the Cours du Commerce.
Having visited Paris on several previous occasions this was without a doubt our best stay so far. This was our first experience of using airbnb and Camille could not have been more helpful recommending restaurants and a local jazz club and more importantly making himself easily available for communication where necessary.
A great trip and many thanks.
We really enjoyed the stay at this wonderful department. Camille is a fantastic host and is was extremely easy to communicate with him, what we appreciate. The location of the apartment is perfect, near to Metro "Odeon": Best: You can easily walk to the Louvre, Pont Neuf, Jardin Luxembourg ... The area is nice; from our view the best location in Paris. Our two childs loved the apartment too; two great icecream stores nearby. Do not miss GROM just two streets away!
This was my 6th trip and I have always wanted an apartment in Paris well now I have one. I will never stay any where else as long as this place is available. Best location, very comfortable, well-appointed and decorated perfectly. Camille was very welcoming and thoughtful. I can not say enough good things.
Everything about Camille's apartment in Saint-Germain-des-Pres was absolutely perfect!! The apartment is even more beautiful in person - it is well equipped with everything you could imagine. Camille was the most wonderful host! He promptly answered all my emails, met us on the street to bring us to the apartment and made us feel right at home in his apartment/neighborhood. This apartments location made seeing Paris so incredibly easy - not to mention the neighborhood has so much to offer in itself. I would recommend this apartment to anyone and would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
Camille was an awesome host; communication was seamless and the apartment was better than the photos. The neighborhood is easily accessible to all the attractions that Paris has to offer and Camille is available to answer any and all questions. A wonderful experience in Paris!!!
I have been traveling to Paris every year for the past 5 years for work and have to say that this is by far the best stay I have ever had. The apartment is exactly as shown online. It's a cosy space - (very airy and spacious for Paris standard) but what made my stay extra special was that this place made me feel so relaxed and at home every evening after I return from a long day at work.
Camille is an flawless host not only showing me around the flat and explained about the local area on checking in, but he sent through recommendations on restaurant and made sure my stay was going well.
I would definitely make this apartment a destination every time I come to visit Paris!!
About the Host, Camille
A Parisian at heart, I'm an Australian living a certain "belle epoque" in the city of lights. I fell in love with this town 25 years ago, and like good French wine, it's only become more delicious with time. I can't live without great food, one of the many reasons I moved here. The other is my work - I am a creative director at Disney. These two reasons help me dream with my eyes open! I love being creative, and adore traveling. Apart from Paris, New York is a favorite destination. Prague too. Travelling well is a happy obession of mine. That's why I have created a great place to host travellers "chez moi". Just like me, you deserve the best.
