l'Etage Noble is a spacious apartment in a wonderful neighborhood (St. Germaine). It is a perfect location in such a walkable part of Paris. The rooms are big, except for the kitchen, but who comes to Paris to cook.
My husband and I met our two adult children in Paris in May 2014 and stayed in this quintessentially Parisienne apartment for 10 days. Initially we had some concerns about booking accommodation on the internet so we were delighted to discover that the apartment was just as described on the listing and as reviewed by most previous guests. Delphine is a gracious and generous lady with a lovely sense of humour and we found her recommendations and hints very helpful during our stay in this amazing city (there is a folder with useful information in the dining room which we frequently referred to). The location is in a lively area, which is where we wanted to be, so street noise is to be expected and soaked up as part of the experience. Based on an earlier review we attended the restaurant across the road (AU?) and liked it so much we returned for a second night. The apartment's centrality meant that every day we set off walking to our various destinations and when we strayed too far away it was easy to get the Met back close to 'home' (or catch a cab as our night-owl offspring did). So many museums, gardens, restaurants, architectural masterpieces, shops; so little time! We loved finding a tube of vegemite amongst the condiments, a sure sign that other Australians had travelled this path before us. Merci beaucoup Delphine, sorry this review has been so long coming.
We are four ladies who were exploring Paris for a week. We were delighted with our accommodations, and also with the owner of the apartment, who was helpful and charming. The apartment is clean, spacious, and right in the center of everything. We could walk to museums, shops, restaurants, parks, the Seine, and the metro stations. We had wonderful meals throughout Paris, but one of our favorite restaurants was AU 35, right across the street. All of the reviews on VRBO were right on target in their praise of this lovely historic home. We would love to return some day and would absolutely recommend it to others. Merci beaucoup, Delphine. Nous avons eu une merveillieuse aventure.
Our group of four women stayed in this lovely apartment for 8 nights. This is a neighborhood of antique shops and boutiques. There is a wonderful small bakery on the block and one of our favorite restaurants in Paris, Au 35, is across the street. The apartment is very near the old church Saint-Germain des Pres and the metro stop of the same name and is also within a 5 minute walk to the Seine. The apartment itself is wonderful with very high ceilings, tall French windows, and beautiful moldings. The bedrooms and main living room are spacious. The kitchen is small but perfectly adequate for the breakfasts that we had after a trip to the local bakery or shops. We could have eaten in at night but chose to go to one of the numerous good local restaurants. Delphine, the family member who handles the rental of the apartment, is delightful and very helpful. This is a wonderful apartment for a group of friends or family. We recommend it highly.
Our extended family of 5 adults and 17 yr old teenager had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful reminder of an earlier era. The atmosphere was grand due the high ceilings from yesteryear and yet the important accomodations were updated to the latest standards. It was old and new at the same time. The beds were new, spacious and comfortable... bathrooms clean and modern. The dining table large and seats and sofa, very comfortable. We found the climate inside to be very comfortable due to the volume of air that the rooms contained...warm even though it was cool and drizzly outside. There was the usual city noise outside but that is what city living entails... if you want country quiet, go to Giverny and stayed there without the late night cafes, the music, the vibrancy that is central Paris, the museums and the Left Bank. The Louvre is very nearly just a hop, skip and jump across the street and Seine... just a wonderful location! And to top things off, Delphine was a wonderful and caring host who responded to every inquiry and request quickly and happily.
The apartment was in a GREAT location. Great little neighborhood that has a lot of cafe's, patisseries, boulangeries and a grocery store! The best gelato is less than a 10 min walk. Laduree is a block away. Henri Le Roux (chocolates & caramel to die for) is 3 blocks away and La Maison du Chou (awesome vanilla, chocolate & coffee cream puffs) is 2 blocks away. The weather in Paris during our visit was incredibly hot and humid in the 90's. The apartment doesn't have AC nor fans. We had to sleep with the windows open just to have some air exchange. So, needless to say, we couldn't go to sleep when we wanted to because Parisiennes didn't go to bed until midnight (at the earliest) and we had to wake up at the crack of dawn because of garbage trucks, construction work or whatever noise came about at the crack of dawn. So, aside from the heat and it's consequences, the apartment was very comfy & homey.
