This was our first experience of booking someone's home for a city stay and I have to say it all went very smoothly. Monique was very nice in her replies to my emails and queries. The apartment is very clean and fully equipped and Monique's description is very apt. Across the road from the apartment are very nice shops including a butchers, a charcuterie and a bakers. The street has a selection of supermarkets, bars and cafes.
I would recommend one of Monique's guides - City Walks: Paris: 50 Adventures on Foot to explore the pretty streets just off the main tourist areas. The apartment is situated on the Left Bank and not far from the main tourist sites.The area is flat and for those not inclined to walk, there is a Metro station nearby.
The double glazing is very good at reducing street noise but as it is an apartment, movement will be heard from other parts of the building.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would recommend it to others and I would like to thank Monique for allowing us to stay at her home.
We are happy and satisfied with the apartment, the location and how helpful and gracious Monique has been; from start to finish. The neighborhood is close to everything we need and accessible to the metro for all the sights of Paris. I would love to stay here again on another Paris trip. The owner Monique is a jewel!
This apartment is in a great little neighborhood with handy stores and shops on the same street. The landlord Monique was very nice and friendly even though I made a mistake on our arrival time and kept her waiting for hours. The building is very secure and the unit has it's own washer/dryer if needed. It's in a pretty much perfect location for your sightseeing home base with a metro stop a minute walk away. So glad we found this apartment and have zero complaints. We would recommend it to anyone.
My family and I stayed at this stylish and cosy centrally located apartment in February half term. The owner greeted us with a warm and friendly welcome, her apartment is perfectly situated for sightseeing, the Eiffel tower is within walking distance. It is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The street outside has everything you could need, butchers, bakers, fruit shops etc. I am looking forward to staying again and would highly recommend this place for your visit. Monique is a lovely lady and easy to communicate with.
The apartment was wonderful. We found it nicer than it appears in the pictures. The area is quite nice with a restaurant, pharmacy, grocery store, bakery, butcher and other foods all within 50 meters. Several Métro lines are within easy walking distance. The owner is extremely pleasant and helpful and overall the experience was perfect. Thank you Monique!
