PARIS: capital for the pigeon?NOOO=the PARROTS PARRAKEETS HEAVEN!!!

by nadia
Thursday April 27th, 2017

Paris counts about 500 green spaces  distributed on its 20 arrondissements, which makes it the most woody capital of Europe.

During one of your walk in a Parisian park, you might hear exotic birds cries and might feel to have seen a colored bird ?? ?? ?No, you have not dreamed !

Indeed, about 50 parrots parrakeets have escaped Orly airport containers in 1974 and CDG airport container in 1990

    Apartment with two bedrooms actually in the heart of the Marais. Clean and tidy. Well stocked with blankets, towels and linens of all kinds. The rooms are small and dated but functional. Excellent organization to be with the owner. Overall very good. Sabrina, UK, June 2014

    Myself and three friends travelled from Ireland to watch our team play in Euro 2016 against Sweden. We had a fantastic time in Paris and had wonderful experience in Nadia;s apartment. The location is about five minutes walking to the metro which is ideal ,and there a few nice Chinese restaurants and pizza places nearby, as well as a supermarket across the road. We didn't actually meet Nadia, but she was very helpful and easy to contact via email or text. She sent Giuli to assist us on our arrival who was prompt and helpful. I would happily consider staying at this apartment again should I wish to stay in Paris, as it is ideal for 2-4 people and has all necessary accessories. SHERCOCK IRELAND-JUNE 2016

    My boyfriend and I loved staying at this little gem of a studio. We loved the area, and we felt it was really quiet considering being in such a happening area. Wifi was great, and I enjoyed having a espresso every morning (now I am buying a nespresso of my own!). The bathroom is small but I have been to...

Wifi was great, and I enjoyed having a espresso every morning (now I am buying a nespresso of my own!). The bathroom is small but I have been to Paris before and was prepared for this. I would definitely love to stay here again! SAN DIEGO-CALIFORNIA , SEPTEMBER 2016

    Perfect for the Paris experience!  We enjoyed this lovely apartment so much!

    Perfect for the Paris experience!  We enjoyed this lovely apartment so much! You just can't beat the price, location, and space!  Nadia and Tony were an incredible help during our stay, and offered us all of the amenities that we needed!  Being from the states, it's always a worry that we'll miss our usual comforts from home, and here I didn't miss a thing!  We stayed 4 nights in June, and the weather was so cool that we never needed an air conditioner at all, we even had to turn the heater on one night.  This building was made like the old castles, the windows are situated perfectly for the best natural air conditioning.  After a 2 week trip in the middle east and Europe, it was wonderful to wash all of the laundry, and using the hanging rack to dry was a neat experience. We were worried about the stairs, and like the other reviews, it's true- it wasn't a problem at all!  The street is very quiet, but the 2 adjacent streets are hopping all day and night, and it stays pretty quiet upstairs.  The space was really big for Paris with a comfortable bed and a lot of closet space; it was just enough room for me, my husband, and our 13 year old daughter.  There's a small market right downstairs to buy fresh food and drinks for the kitchen.  I loved the books, and getting up early to walk the Latin Quarter for a little shopping was my favorite part!  It is a very safe neighborhood, I always felt comfortable walking by myself.  The small balcony was delightful for morning coffee, and watching the students arrive to school in the mornings.  There are fantastic cafes and eateries on every corner here, and even a great "American...

    We've spent wonderful week in Nadia's appartment. The communication with Nadia was pleasant: she answered the mails immediately, the check-in and check-out went smothly. The apartment itself is clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water, good wifi. It's in very interesting historic building ( 17th century I think) on quiet street. In close proximity you find a lot of cafes (Mouffetard...

The apartment itself is clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water, good wifi. It's in very interesting historic building ( 17th century I think) on quiet street. In close proximity you find a lot of cafes (Mouffetard street), good bakery (Contrescarpe place) and supermarket (Lacepede street). And about location - it's unbelievable, you are in heart of Paris. Short walks bring you to Seine, Notre-Dame, Cluny, Jardin de Luxembourg, Jardin de Plants. I heartially recommend this apartment and hope to return. Jérusalem, Irina Difour, MAY 2015

The apartment was clean, charming, and the view from the terrace was breathtaking. There are no shortage of local cafes, restaurants (Moissonnier was our favorite), and grocery stores within walking distance. The location made it convenient to walk to everywhere in the city, but also gave us a place to relax in a nice, quiet neighborhood at the end of the day. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

    Nadia was the perfect host - welcomed us warmly upon arrival, offered drinks and wine and even showed us to a market nearby for dinner. The penthouse was everything one could ask for - Parisian, cosy, clean and fully equipped with everything one needs. We loved the terrace and spent time each morning there.
