    Nadia was incredibly welcoming! When I had arrived she greeted me, my mother, and aunt with open arms - it was almost as if we were seeing a long lost friend! It was great being able to rent an apartment because it allowed us to really experience Paris on another level. The apartment was clean, located right across the street from a grocery store which allowed us to purchase items for breakfast throughout the week and some snacks. In addition, it was great having so much space available to us. The apartment is charming and the neighbors are wonderful. It is also located down the road from several bus stops and a couple blocks away from several train stations. Nadia was attentive throughout the whole week checking in on us to see how we were doing and any issues that we had, she was quick to respond and provide a solution. I've already told her that I plan on coming back next year and hope to stay in the same apartment! September 2016 Connecticut, US

    What a lovely apartment. This spacious terraced apartment accommodated 4 adults comfortably. Loved the large open terrace and the separate dining area – great for croissants and coffee. We would highly recommend this apartment. Great experience living in a Paris suburb. Nelson, Nelson, New Zealand, July 2010

    Отличная квартира. Третий округ, в котором находятся апартаменты, очень удобен для посещения достопримечательностей пешком. В квартире есть все необходимое для отдыха после прогулок, напротив подъезда кафе со свежими круасанами на завтрак, за углом прачечная, рядом метро и много автобусов. В общем, отличный вариант для большой семьи за приемлемые деньги! Спасибо! Moscow, Russia, September 2013

    Очень уютная квартира с шикарным расположением - до Елисейских полей 5 минут, рядом много магазинов и ресторанов, метро в 2 шагах.  Все так как описывалось на сайте. С маленьким ребенком недостает только стиральной машины (прачечная недалеко), зато есть посудомойка и быстрый интернет! Хозяин очень заботливо сопровождал подготовку к приезду и помог с инструкциями для удобного размещения в Париже. décembre 2013,...

    This was my second visit to this flat and it did not disappoint. Quiet, spacious with all the necessary amenities, we felt completely at home. The key drop off and pick up was seamless and made the experience that much more enjoyable. The terrace is amazing - we spent a lot of mornings and evenings just taking in the sights and sounds of the city. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and Nadia was a dream to work with.

    We were very happy in this delightful little flat. It was comfortable and was provided with everything one could possibly need, without being ostentatious- in other words, it was as 'authentic' a Parisien experience in the best sort of way that it could be.

Also the situation was perfect - a nice quiet street, but just round the corner, and within easy walking distance, from all the interesting places in the Marais and down to the Seine.... I would definitely return here next time.   kaitie, AUSTIN, SEPTEMBER 2014
