Apologies to Ferida for the late posting! My family and I chose this wonderful apartment over Christmas in 2013-2014. I am an airline employee and we travel standby, so we needed to arrive a day earlier than originally booked. I called Ferida and she was very accommodating with booking the extra day.
We took the train in from CDG airport with no issues early on the Sunday. Ferida was out of town for the week with her own Christmas plans, but she had arranged for the housekeeper to give us a brief orientation.
The apartment was very neat, functional and QUIET! Short climb up stairs to the apartment from the street level, so if you have a family member that has trouble climbing, it may be a consideration.. One small water closet on the exterior of the apartment that our kids (one early 20's, one late teen) actually became more comfortable with than the interior restroom. Kitchen was well stocked and we actually had a very nice Christmas meal that we prepared (not too many restaurant's open) in house.
All beds were very comfortable and we couldn't hear a peep of noise from the street late at night.
The location is incredibly good. Short walks to the Louvre and Notre Dame. Longer walks to Eiffel Tower and other sites, but beautiful as most walks are on the river.
All in all, we had a great vacation which I attribute in large part to our choice of apartment.
