Beautiful apartment in an excellent location in Paris
Submitted: January 5, 2013
Stayed: December 2012
We stayed at Fontaine Moderne between Christmas and New Year 2012. The apartment was exactly as it appears online, and is spotless, very comfortable, and had everything we needed to make it feel like a home from home. Its actually cosier than the pictures depict, we loved the style and decor!
The location is fantastic. Its within a 25 minute walk from Gare du Nord (perfect if you get the Eurostar), 25 minute walk to the Seine, 10-15 minute walk to the Sacre Couer, and you are 5 minutes from 3 different metro stations taking you in all directions. We walked most of the time to where we needed to go. Despite not being central, we actually preferred being up in the 9th district as we had the fantastic views up at the Sacre Couer, and the entertaining "people watching" around the Moulin Rouge area - the area quite literally comes alive at night!
There are also plenty of supermarkets, street markets, boulangeries and patisseries in the area. Whilst we stayed in Paris we did a cookery class, saw a show, and had a bike tour, and at the end of each day the apartment was the perfect place to come back and relax!
Paula was really helpful, a great host and we loved the apartment which was great value for money. We would definitely love to come and stay again!
Thankyou Paula, hope to see you again soon.
