So you're planning your trip to Paris and you're looking for the perfect place to stay? Look no further. This is it! We were so blessed to stay in this lovely apartment for 12 nights. The apartment is located in the heart of Paris in the beautiful, up-scale, clean and very safe St.-Germain-des-Pres area within walking distance to most of the major sights and a bus stop right outside the door and the metro only a block away. The top floor apartment is spacious, bright, airy, immaculate and supplied with everything you need. The windows are new and keep the sound out very well. The view is spectacular overlooking the beautiful Saint-Sulpice Square and stunning church. Local markets, shops, cafes and restaurants are right around the block and the Monoprix is just a bit further. The gorgeous Luxembourg Gardens are only a 5 minute walk. The bed is very comfortable and it is wonderful to have a washer/dryer and free unlimited long-distance phone calls. There are many guidebooks in the apartment and the owner will lend out some of his extensive collection of DVDs and CDs. The apartment looks just like the photos on the website but the views are even more amazing than can be shown. The owners, Claude and Lucile, are gracious, warm, welcoming and offer a wealth of knowledge and assistance. From our first email contact Claude responded immediately, providing extensive information and offered his help in planning and arranging tickets, shuttles and daytrips. This made our stay so much more enjoyable and relaxed. Claude has provided a binder with precise information and directions to all the major attractions in and around Paris. He provides tickets for all the major museums. He planned out tailor made day trips to the Loire Valley and Juno Beach for us with clear and precise directions from the moment we left our door. He emailed us before our trip asking if we would like him to purchase train tickets early to take advantage of discounts and had them waiting for us when we arrived. Claude spent an hour touring the neighborhood giving restaurant recommendations and showing us where all the best shops and the ATM and metro stations were. Claude and Lucile are always ready to help but are never intrusive. You could not find a better apartment to stay in or more lovely, gracious, helpful and attentive hosts. Claude and Lucile, you have our deepest appreciation and gratitude for making our dream trip to Paris even more wonderful that we could have ever imagined!
