    Nadia was perfect in communication. I got all details to the flat in one Email :-) and she was very qick in answering our questions. Very uncomplicated. The flat was very nice, furnished and equipped with love for the detail, very clean and quietly situated to the courtyard. Everything you need is here. It is located in a realy lovely area, very near to two Metro-stations, with many shops (small and good supermarkets, bakers etc....), Bistro´s, a very famous creperie and the beautiful Musee Picasso. It was a wonderfull stay in Paris - felt quite at home after short time. We got and gave back the keys at a time when we needed. Would stay here again! We highly recommend her place!

There is a parking garage nearby for those of you arriving by car. The host gave us all the information we needed and we had a wonderful stay in Paris. We can recommend...

    A great place to stay, quiet neighborhood but very close to so many fun places. And the nearby Jardine de Plantes is just about 5 minute walk, where you can spend fabulous times with the entire family members. Supermarkets and local restaurants are just seconds away.. The owner is very nice and helpful, we even got very good tips on where to spend beautiful and meaningful times in Paris and its other outer skirt places of interests. I would recommend this place for everyone and especially so if you like to wonder around the River Seine. Enjoy your time everyone...." Januar y. New York , March 2012

    駅からも近くて、どこにでも出やすく便利でした。 モノプリックスという大きいスーパーも近くにあるため、食材の買い出しにも困りません。 3階との表記ですが、日本で言う4階の表記なので注意。エレベーターもなし。 ダブルベッドが2つ、バスタブもあり、トイレも別にあったので、4人で宿泊しても手狭に感じませんでした。キッチンも使い勝手が良かったです。 Kobe, Japon

    After searching for days I am thankful I chose Nadia's flat. The space was very comfortable, quiet for sleeping, relatively updated, nice wifi, but most importantly- the location was exceptional! Perfectly set in Le Marais and close to many main transportation lines. As a single traveler, and a first timer to Paris I really cannot imagine how I could've picked a better place to spend a week. Additionally, Nadia's communication was excellent: very responsive, timely, and genuinely polite. I would stay at this same flat and book with Nadia again without any hesitation! Nice to know I have a lasting connection in Paris now :-)  New York, September 2017

    Everything was perfect for our stay in Paris. We loved everything about the apartment. Hopefully it will not be too long before we are back in Paris! Location, building and furnishings were all above our expectations. Nothing needs to be improved Andy and Stephan MAROUBRA, AUSTRALIA, January 2017
