Just returned from a trip to Paris and beautiful Burgundy and I felt compelled to write a review of our stay in this Paris apartment right away! We spent 5 days in this apartment with our two boys, aged 13 and 6. Alexis was fabulous to work with, so prompt with answering all of my questions (and there were many :)) and staying in touch throughout. She emailed me detailed recommendations on dining, shopping and fun activities. The housekeeper was on vacation when we arrived but Alexis took the time and trouble to prepare and email me ahead of time, videos with instructions on how to work the sofa bed and the apartment locks. As a result we had no problem at all getting ourselves into the apartment and settling in.
The apartment is lovely, so peaceful and quiet despite its central location in the heart of bustling Marais. There are plenty of stores of every kind right in the neighborhood--a convenience store right next door, a good size department store, fresh produce stand, boulangerie, pharmacy, and even a couple of boutiques and a shoe shop. We walked to the Hotel de Ville, Notre Dame and Saint Chapelle on a sunny day. Bastille metro is a 2 minute walk with connections to all the major sights as well as the train station. The apartment is clean, well furnished and equipped with everything a family would need to make their stay comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and we prepared breakfast there daily and cooked a few lovely meals too, with fresh produce purchased at the weekly markets. Great spice collection and a variety of teas and coffee in the kitchen! It made us feel totally at home. The bathroom is spacious, with double sinks, a shower and a soaking tub that made getting ready in the morning a breeze! The beds are very comfortable and the convertible sofa bed worked well for our boys. Washing machine and wifi worked great! And yes, plenty of power outlets fitted with adapters all over the apartment :).
Thank you Alexis, for your attention to detail and for helping make our stay in Paris truly comfortable and enjoyable!
