We rented the Anne’s lovely residence for a month last September, and found the accommodations absolutely perfect for our needs. Anne thought of everything a vactioner would need whist saying in her home.
The apartments in La Maison des Trois Jardins are lovely, with Anne’s being a standout for the fabulous appointments, original artwork, quiet location, and a wonderful vista overlooking the wonderful and lush gardens.
We love to cook and the well-appointed kitchen had everything we needed to make gourmet dinners. There are plenty of cook’s tools, pots, pans, bowls, utensils, cutlery, dinnerware and glasses!
The innovative bed is extremely functional, easy to raise and lower, allowing an open floor during non-sleeping hours. The mattress is firm, very comfortable, with enough pillows and bedding to satisfy a fussy sleeper. The bathroom is large, with plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure for a great shower. The added benefit of the hair dryer and easy to use washing machine was a Godsend.
The secure and key coded entry to the quiet rue Tournefort was easy for our taxi driver to find and gave us quick access to the Pantheon area, gateway to the Jardin de Luxembourg and fabulous restaurants.
The rue Mouffetard courtyard entry, also very secure, opens to the lively market street and active social scene. Everything one would need to prepare gourmet meals, or a simple breakfast of award winning butter croissants, is just outside the doors. Place Monge, location of the Metro and an outdoor market, has the best pharmacie for French cosmetics and is just a five minute walk from Anne’s apartment. A secure BNP ATM is on the corner as one walks down to the Metro.
Many cafes and the famous Contrascarpe are outside of the rue Mouffetard entry door, a chance to sit and watch the world pass by.
The complex is very safe, and Anne’s apartment is very quiet. I spent ten wonderful days by myself in the apartment, felt very safe, sleeping with the windows wide open.
Anne provides everything needed for a wonderful visit to Paris, restaurant guides, bedding, towels, and welcome treats. She is very accommodating, meeting us on our schedules, and making herself available at all times, ensuring every one of our needs was anticipated and satisfied! We will be returning this fall for another visit to Anne’s lovely apartment!
