    Apartment very nice and consistent with the description. Very quiet room overlooking a courtyard, noisy stay the night as facing the street, but we're in Paris and this is normal ... apartment very clean and healthy. Good welcome and very good follow for arrival and departure. Daniel on July 2015, ATLANTA

    Four friends shared this beautiful home for a week. Close to the metro, restaurants, shops and a fabulous park within easy walking distance. Paris, we discovered, is full of hidden treasures and this place is no exception. There is a basement with aquariums full of fish from all over the world close by!

    Four friends shared this beautiful home for a week. Close to the metro, restaurants, shops and a fabulous park within easy walking distance. Paris, we discovered, is full of hidden treasures and this place is no exception. There is a basement with aquariums full of fish from all over the world close by! The apartment is comfortable and clean and everything you could wish for. Nadia (albeit we did not meet her) answered every question promptly and made sure we were comfortable, A nice bottle of wine, fruit juice and beers were in the fridge waiting for us when we arrived. Sitting on the terrace "enjoying" the moment and pondering our days activities was a wonderful way to spend a few hours every day. We cannot speak highly enough of this apartment - it made Paris our home for the week. Thank you Nadia. Brisbane, Queensland, Australia , March 2013

    We stayed 3 danish girls for 9 days at the apartment, and we were very satisfied with the place, which looks exactly as in the pictures. We were welcomed by the owner, Éliane, who was very friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. She made a great effort in making us feel at home and she i.a. helped us find a nice flee market. The apartment is clean, the decoration is very comfortable and the equipment fully responded our needs for the stay. The area was perfect for us; not a lot of tourists, 15 min walk from the metro and with a lot of nice cafés and restaurants nearby. We would absolutely recommend the apartment to friends and family.

    La descripción y fotos de la presentación son fieles y reales a lo disponible. La ubicación es central, cercana a los núcleos de interés turístico, comercial y de esparcimiento de Paris; mientras el barrio es calmo y seguro. Pegado a un centro de comercios y bares-restaurants muy agradable. La atención de propietaria y gestora del appart es amable y cercana....

    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...

    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

    Nadia was very helpful, supportive and flexible during the booking process. Despite some email misses, which were my fault, she confirmed all details and was proactive in making sure all of our questions were answered. Nadia was not able to meet us at the apartment, but ensured that we had a contact to hand over the keys, orient us to the property, give us some good advice about the neighbourhood to make us feel welcome. The apartment itself was lovely, perfect for the 3 of us - and we really valued the terrace especially for the early morning coffee & croissants in the sun - and the solarium for the evenings when it was just a bit windy. The neighbourhood was lovely and quiet at night - and very close to the Metro for us to explore to our hearts content. We had a lovely time and were pleasantly surprised to find the Promenade Plantee - a unique gem - and one of the oldest Markets in Paris (so that also means fantastic restaurants) was close (within walking distance) to the apartment. We would seek this apartment out when back in Paris, and fully recommend this listing to others. Thank you Nadia!The outdoor space was amazing, the apartment had lovely light and very good airflow (the bedrooms all had doors that opened onto a small balcony). The hosts were thoughtful about the small details that made a huge difference to travelers for example Nespresso for the morning. The apartment is in a lovely neighbourhood with good amenities (shops, bakeries, markets, pharmacies) and was so quiet that we could hear the doves cooing in the morning.Nadia was wonderful to us, initially we were double booked and she allowed us to cancel, and made sure we knew the costs and how to...

    The apartment was very well located right next to a couple metro and bus stops.  The washing machine had a little trouble for us but I assume the owner will have taken care of that by now. The shower has some weird black spots in the grout that make it seem not super clean. It did feel very secure though...

    The apartment was very well located right next to a couple metro and bus stops.  The washing machine had a little trouble for us but I assume the owner will have taken care of that by now. The shower has some weird black spots in the grout that make it seem not super clean. It did feel very secure though as advertised. Kitchen had everything we needed and it was a good place for a short stay to be able to see all the popular sights.   May 2015, COLORADO, US
