Perfect location, experience!

Both my husband and I were delighted about the location of the studio. It is literally halfway between two metro stations, and situated very close to many boutiques and stores that are unique to French style and tastes. There are a few bakeries that are literally just around the corner, absolutely delicious. The neighbors were so kind and gracious, quiet and helpful.
To visit the tourist attractions, each trip on the metro took approximately 15 mins with one change here and there. Easy, convenient. We were cautioned about pickpockets but while on the train, the locals were the very ones to be watching out for us as foreigners! Literally.
Françoise is a pure delight to communicate with, and provided personal detail and assistance at all times. Alice is the kind guardian of the key and flat-- she was also so helpful and kind.
The place was immaculate and quaint, exactly as the photos reveal. There is a little washing machine in the washroom, which was really convenient-- we used it twice during our 5 day stay, which was great for our baby's clothes and such. There is a drying rack right beside the sink, so the load was dried by morning.
The spacious shower is amazing-- a lovely surprise for such a small place!
Most importantly, we had our little 9 month old baby with us. Having two fold out beds worked really well for us, and a perfect little kitchen to provide her meals is something that would prove to be difficult in a hotel.
There were pots and pans, a coffee maker, wine glasses, a fridge, tv with international channels, Internet and international calling. We cooked snacks every day. There is a huge grocery store 4 mins away, and several tiny markets around the blocks-- not to mention a fruit stand literally outside the gate.
We are used to staying in 4-5 star hotels and this is our first time trying homeaway. Definitely changed our experienced, enriching our stay in Paris.
Would return to stay here. Hope this info is helpful to you, and enjoy!
