FLYING TAXI COMING TO PARIS THIS SUMMER

by nadia
Tuesday April 25th, 2017

PARIS will be the FIRST city in the WORLD to experiment this summer its first “Sea Bubbles“: flying water eco-taxi with a futuristici design, halfway between a car and a boat

Surfing two meters above the River Seine, they will host up to 4 people including the pilote and will run at 15km/hour.

It might look like something from War of the Worlds, but the space-age Sea Bubble river taxi could be the future of transport in Paris.

    The apartment was wonderful! fantastic location 2 blocks from the Seine and 2 more to Notre Dame, easy walking to all the museums and parks along the river as well as the isle st louis with lots of great, affordable restaurants. Cafe Med! the bed was comfortable and the full height and length mirrors on the closet made it seem bigger and added to the fun. the 3 windows allowed for plenty of light and air and the blackout curtains were effective at blocking the light for late sleeping. pretty quiet (for a big city) 1 way street and the other building tenants were quiet. the 92 stairs up were tough our first day with luggage but were not a big deal otherwise. The kitchen has 2 burner electric cooktop and a microwave but no stove. We made drip coffee everyday (no coffee grinder so buy ground coffee) and the milk steamer on the espresso machine was a nice treat. plenty of nearby grocery stores. The dishwasher was nice to have. although there is no clothes drier we found the heated towel rack left the towels soft and warm for the next use, really nice. Dishwasher, laundry detergent, coffee filters, etc and basic condiments were well stocked. the Sony stereo has a CD player and high quality sound. Wifi worked great. If you travel from outside Europe you will need power adapters for your electrical appliances although the wifi and cable boxes have standard USB ports for charging cell phones which helped alot. 2 different Metro lines within 5 minute walk as well as the 87 bus (which goes from the Eiffel tower directly to a stop 1 block away) and the 67 bus (which goes to Montmartre from the same stop) made it really easy to get around.

    We stayed in the apartment for 3 nights recently and were delighted with our choice of apartment. It is very handily located to the Latin Quarter, the Pantheon, Notre Dame and St Michel. It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner....

It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner. Whilst the apartment is rather small it quite suited our needs as we were out and about for most of each day. Would definitely request this apartment for future visits to Paris.

    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. Will not hesitate to recommend this...

    Sweet apartment at Marais, heart of Paris. Unadulterated old European charm, last floor up a curvy staircase, authentic Parisian style. If you want to get the ultimate Parisian experience from within, not flashy but very much real - this is the place to go.

    Sweet apartment at Marais, heart of Paris. Unadulterated old European charm, last floor up a curvy staircase, authentic Parisian style. If you want to get the ultimate Parisian experience from within, not flashy but very much real - this is the place to go. Nadia was extremely helpful at all the stages of the trip, even before we set foot on French soil. She was responding to our emails and inquiries usually within one hour or less, very accessible! Eliane, the apartment owner who stayed next door, was also very available, helpful and open to share. Both know perfect English (not a given in France), which makes communication a breeze. Fridge is small and ancient but works well, and all the appliances are in perfect working order. WiFi is there and it's working. If you love philosophy and history and Latin, and you read French, Eliane has plenty of those books on her shelves. Bottom line:  Like that croissant out of a stove just few minutes ago in a coffee shop at the corner down the street, go for this delicious, tender, warm, unassuming and madly romantic taste of real France! Looking forward to visiting Nadia's place again! Jerusalem, Israel , August 2011

    Nadia's appartement biedt een uitstekende uitvalsbasis voor een bezoek aan Parijs. Neem naast de metro naar de top attracties eens de tijd om parc Buttes Chaumont te bezoeken, of loop via de rue Belville eens richting place de Republique naar het hart van de stad. “Mooi gelegen tussen het prachtige parc Buttes Chaumont en de levendige rue Belleville.” Alkmaar, Netherlands, AUGUST...

    Het appartement ligt heel centraal. Op loopafstand naar de eilanden, notre dame en de wijk Marais aan de ene kant en saint germain aan de andere. Het appartement ligt op de bovenste verdieping. Je moet goed ter been zijn want het zijn heel wat traptreden naar boven. Eenmaal in het appartement is het super gezellig met een aparte slaapkamer en een gezellige bar/keuken. Eventueel is de slaapbank geschikt voor 1 persoon of 2 kinderen. Op loopafstand zijn er verschillende leuke barretjes en restaurantjes te vinden. De Metro is om de hoek. January 2071 DENMARK
