La Résidence Luxembourg
Tucked between the lushness of the Luxembourg Gardens and the grandeur of the dome of the Panthéon.
La Résidence Luxembourg offers 13 ownership shares in a completely renovated and fully outfitted one-bedroom apartment on rue Cujas in central Paris, located on the Rive-Gauche in the 5th arrondissement’s Latin quarter near the Jardin du Luxembourg. Each fractional ownership share entitles its owner to four weeks of usage each year…for as long as the owner likes. Each ownership share is fully transferable so that a fractional owner may sell or gift his/her share at any time without restriction or group interaction.
The apartment is tucked between the lushness of the Luxembourg Gardens and the grandeur of the monumental dome of the Panthéon and overlooks the bibliothèque (library) of La Sorbonne. It is simply impossible to describe all the charms of this neighborhood, whose streets and squares are replete with restaurants and cafés, shops and galleries, museums and theatres, services including several health clubs and swimming pools, fountains, and architectural wonders.
Since the apartment is located in the very heart of Paris, most of the city’s riches are within walking distance. Merely steps away are the Luxembourg Gardens, arguably the most beautiful park in the world’s most beautiful city. Created for Queen Marie de Medici, the meticulously manicured grounds have served as the backdrop for romances both personal and literary for centuries, and its flawlessly maintained palace is home to part of France’s legislature. In addition to the greenery, the Luxembourg Gardens features fabulous fountains, shady sitting areas, walking, and running paths, tennis courts, and Paris’ most celebrated children’s playground.
Soaring into the Paris skyline just a few steps in the opposite direction is the Panthéon with its majestic dome, a monument to the great men and women of France. Just beyond the Panthéon begins the famous rue Mouffetard market with its slanting, medieval streets and seemingly endless line of stalls and shops selling every kind of French food and produce. A few minutes walk in another direction takes you through the heart of the Saint-Germain district to the Seine, from whose banks one can gaze upon Notre-Dame, or stroll across Pont Neuf to visit the Musée du Louvre. Yet another path takes you to the Marais district (less than a 15-minutes walk), offering some of the city’s most interesting architecture as well as still another world of wonderful shopping, eating, and nightlife.
When going further afield there are numerous Métro stations nearby. The closest of these, adjacent to the Gardens, is the RER Luxembourg station, which provides rapid service to both Charles-de -Gaulle and Orly airports without changing trains.

La Résidence Luxemboug is an airy, bright, elegant, and spacious one-bedroom Paris apartment. Viewed from the tall French windows of the large living room, the blue Parisian sky over the carved stone cornices, slate roof, and sculpted finial atop the dome of the Sorbonne may either call the fractional homeowner out into the streets below to experience all the pleasures of living in the City of Light, or invite them simply to linger at home beside the open windows, breathing in the romance of the ages wafting in upon the very air of Paris.
On the third floor (European, 4th U.S.) with a lift (!!), the apartment is in a 19th-century stone building oozing with history and charm. Exquisitely comfortable, yet impeccably decorated in a tasteful blend of modern and traditional furnishings, the apartment has broad-plank solid oak floors, original artworks, and a wood-burning fireplace with a period marble mantlepiece. You and your guests may never wish to leave, although all of Paris will be at your feet in this amazing central location.
Equipped with a highly efficient heating system (gas “chaudière” for never-ending hot water), air-conditioning for the warmest months, double-paned windows to insulate both sound and heating/cooling, a washer and dryer (stackable units), a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, large-capacity European refrigerator and freezer, oven and gas cook-top and kitchen and bath external air evacuation systems. The sofa in the living room conceals a truly superior queen-sized sofa bed with a thick, firm mattress for your guests. The sunlit bathroom is fitted with a full-length bathtub and shower, complemented by a heated towel rack and finished stone vanity. At the end of the day in the finely appointed bedroom, the high-quality mattress at 1.6 meters is several inches wider than an American queen-sized bed and has been dressed in high thread-count luxury cotton linens. Facing a courtyard, you are assured of quiet nights and restful sleep.
The apartment is not only livable but absolutely luxurious.
High-speed wireless Internet allows owners and their guests to roam the apartment with their own laptop computer. Cordless phones on a VOIP system provide seamless and free international and local calling. A flat-screen Samsung television with cable and DVD player is in each room, and a high-quality stereo and digital music docking capability complete the technical environment. As an owner, you will also appreciate the convenience of having your own locker to store personal belongings or that favorite case of wine, making the apartment seem even more like that the “pied-à-terre” you will call home.
Great transportation surrounds the apartment connecting you quickly and easily to all of Paris and beyond. The RER (regional train) direct to both airports (Charles de Gaulle and Orly) is just minutes away by foot, but the Métro lines 4 and 10 are just as close as are lots of local buses…but because the apartment is so central, you may enjoy Paris easily on foot.
If you’ve wanted to own your own Paris apartment in order to spend part of each year in Paris, this is the perfect solution.
