We met Flore when we arrived and we were delighted with all the help and information she provided: a tour of the apartment, instruction on the new appliances, where to eat, what to see, nice places to walk and some great tips on parking. She also offered to print our boarding passes!
The apartment was luxurious. Totally renovated in 2013 the apartment had modern new kitchen and appliances (stove, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine) and the bathroom was extremely clean and the tiling was exquisite. The bedroom was large and comfortable and the beds (two singles pushed together) were also quite comfortable. A small desk provided a work area and there was plenty of closet space. The rooms were very bright and the windows could be opened to see the activity on the pedestrian street below (Rue de Satory). The apartment is on the third floor so keep that in mind if you find stairs difficult.
The location is fabulous for accessing the Chateau Versailles, the largest and most impressive of the French Chateaus - a mere 2 minute walk from the front gates. There were shops on Rue Satory for bread, pastry, fruit, vegetables, frozen prepared meals and other grocery items for eating-in. There is some night-life on the street below but not noisy enough to keep you from sleeping.
If you are arriving by car keep in mind that the North end of Rue de Satory is a pedestrian walkway so consider unloading your luggage from Ave. de Sceaux and then look for parking while your partner/family meets with Flore. Again, talk to Flore about parking tips (my GPS tried to direct me down Rue de Satory from the south end of the street which didn't work out).
The best part of best part of this apartment rental was the fresh decor and modern appliances and proximity to Chateau Versailles and of course Paris is a 20 minute train ride. The least best part was that there was a one-day strike which prevented us from seeing the Chateau! But when we come back we know where to stay.
