    Nadia and Tony were easy to communicate with, in e mail and on the phone, and they English very well. They accommodated some special requests we had based on our specific travel agenda. We were personally welcomed to the apartment, and shown all the particulars. The apartment had everything you might need, and was as nice, spacious, bright, and airy as we imagined. It is perfectly located for exploring Paris on foot, or by subway. The local community is also lively and has all the shops, grocery, and restaurants when you just want to stay local. We found the bed to be very comfortable and the bathroom and shower relatively spacious with good water pressure and temp. All in all we had a great time and highly recommend this accommodation. For us it was our first visit to Paris and our fifth wedding anniversary and we just loved it. Thanks Nadia and Tony for a great visit!!! Ralf and Arisleyda STAMFORD/CONNECTICUT/US-JUNE 2015

    Nadia's place was a great stay for the two nights we were in Paris. It is in a very good location too! Very close to the metro stops, restaurants and bars. It is a small apartment, but had all the amenities we needed. Nadia was helpful as well! Would recommend. LOS ANGELES, September 2017

    We loved our stay! Everything about the apartment was just as stated on the website. It was TINY...but I had expected that, plenty of room though for two adults. It was very very clean and the bathroom was very nice and modern. I loved that we each had our own beds which were comfortable with nice bedding. The neighborhood was...

The neighborhood was great with nearby metro, shopping, bakeries etc. And walking distance to the Eiffle Tower. Our trip was perfect and we would definitely recommend!! Thanks Nadia and Jaqueline!!

    It is almost unanimous that the apartment is charming and spacious, and I'm delighted to add my voice to the mix. Two bedrooms is a wonderful size, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the terrace is all that it looks like in the pictures.

    It is almost unanimous that the apartment is charming and spacious, and I'm delighted to add my voice to the mix. Two bedrooms is a wonderful size, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the terrace is all that it looks like in the pictures. There are few better things in this world than sitting on a terrace in Paris drinking a glass of red wine! The 12th is not a famous area, but it is full of cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and parks. Transit is very close and easy. We had a toddler, so we were excited by the Bois de Vincennes nearby -- and it is a marvellous park. We found three playgrounds in quick walking distance, and likely could have found more if we needed. It is a very child friendly area. For those who have decided to take this lovely apartment, I would give a word of advice: make sure to get the exterior apartment code from Nadia before leaving. I asked a number of times, but never got this important code -- which meant having to wait on the street for a stranger to take pity and let me in. Also, be very clear in advance about your special needs. We didn't bring our stroller or portable crib because we were told these things would be in the apartment. The crib arrived in the afternoon, but the stroller didn't show up for three days. I attribute this to a communication difficulty between Nadia (property manager) and Jeanne (property owner). Just make sure that your needs are clearly articulated and confirm before you leave. Once we had what we needed, though, we couldn't have been happier anywhere in the city. We would love to return to this apartment in the future. Moral of the story: Paris is amazing...

    Schöne Wohnung mit sehr schöner Dachterrasse. Nadia war sehr nett und sehr gute und unkomplizierte Kommunikation. Übergabe der Wohnung ohne Probleme. Einziges Defizit war der Kühlschrank. Diverse Reste vom Vormieter wie Marmelade, Milch, etc. Nett gemeint, aber unerwünscht. Würden gerne wiederkommen. Empfehlenswert. Baden Wûrtemberg, Mai 2018

    We had such a great time introducing our children to Paris and loved staying in Nadia's apartment in the Latin Quarter. The location was ideal and we very much enjoyed the view of the Pantheon from the balcony. The apartment itself was exactly what we needed and it was great to have access to a stove and a refrigerator. Atlanta,...
