just a stone’s throw from Luxembourg Gardens and Odéon underground station
In the publishing house district of Paris’ 6th arrondissement, with its galleries, several of the French capitals most beautiful churches, countless terraces of sometimes famous cafés, restaurants and chic boutiques.
The street, with its succession of mansion houses, does not appear to have changed for centuries. Created in the 16th century, its name was changed several times before it was given that of the younger branch of the French royal family, the members of which were referred to as “premiers princes du sang” (first princes of the blood). In this street, with its superb facades, passers-by are faced with history at every step: it is possible to come across the spirits of Blaise-Pascal, of Beaumarchais who wrote his famous “Barber of Seville”, of Georges-Sand or of the opera singer Maria-Malibran.
This flat is but a stone’s throw from Luxembourg Gardens and the French Senate.
Odéon underground station, on lines 4 and 10, and numerous bus routes are less than 200 metres away.

The district literally hums with intellectual and leisure activities. New residents will greatly appreciate the peace and quiet of the terrace that looks out over an inner courtyard.
