We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Monique's well furnished, immaculate, comfortable and spacious flat for 10 days in June 2012. Tatiana, who manages the keys and paperwork when Monique is out of town met us at the entrance and was wonderful showing us how to work appliances, laundry, and pointing out local grocery shop and hours, etc. All was as promised.
Kitchen, appliances and bathroom must be brand new - perfect condition, crisp and clean. Yet the warmth of her furnishings and hardwood flooring, antique armoire, and cozy new mattresses balanced the newness of the kitchen and bath. Loved her decor - you feel like she invited you into her place - shelves are decorated just as see in photos. Does not feel like a rental. Makes you want to take good care of her place. I would live here if I lived in Paris! Even had a candy dish on the mantle!
Area felt very safe even arriving late at night. People still strolling about - felt safe enough to walk alone at night. A stone's throw from the Metro (subway), taxi and bus stop. Excellent shops, butcher, patisserie and supermarket very close. She supplied towels, linens, paper towels, soap, tp, blowdryer, staples, dishes - all the basics we needed. She even had some nail polish remover on hand! After a quick trip to the market we were ready to enjoy Paris. She even supplied a metro map.
Windows open to back terrace and front street, breeze flows through - lovely at night. Need to shut windows/shutters to cut out sunshine/city/street noise in the day if you are sleeping in. Elevator perfect for suitcases and just one level up from street. Laundry and soap provided.
Would recommend for 2 couples, families with children. 2 Bedrooms are spacious. Perfect for our family of 4.
We will be back to this flat again - hopefully soon!
