A great stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I loved this apartment and its location, perfect for our two week stay. Close to everything, great restaurants within five minute walk, bakeries for almond crossant, metro a block away, and Sophie and her husband were beyond kind and helpful. We look forward to staying again next year. Cozy and comfortable.

1st Time in Paris

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from a 6 night stay in Paris at the end of October. We have never written a review for VRBO before even though we have used this website many many times in the past to book our accommodations. We felt compelled to do so this time as the kindness and hospitality we received from Sophie and Francois was most exceptional. Before we even arrived we could tell that Sophie was an outstanding hostess as she answered all our questions promptly and with great detail via e-mail. The morning we arrived she met us at the front door of the building with a set of keys and explained how to get in and out of our place. She then took us up to the apartment and showed us everything we needed to know and how everything worked. The fruit, bread, jams and almond tiles were much appreciated for weary travellers as was the milk and butter in the fridge! Sophie and Francois also gave us a tour of their apartment next door which overlooks the Palaise Royal coutyard and is beautifully decorated. We felt like we were visiting old friends and this was still the morning of our first day! Our apartment was one of the most comfortable and cosy places we have ever rented. It took us a day or two of wandering around to realize just how centrally located our apartment was. It was so nice to be able to take an hour or an afternoon away from the sightseeing to relax and put your feet up and afterwards you are just steps away from returning to the action! Francois was kind enough to offer to drive us to Versailles on the Wednesday morning as that was close to where he played golf that day. We enjoyed a great day there and even rented bikes to be able to fully tour this massive estate. On Thursday morning Sophie invited us for breakfast and to learn how to make the almond tiles. I will put this lesson to good use here at home with family and friends. Overall I would say if you are planning to visit Paris you couldn't find a better place from which to explore this beautiful and exciting city.

Better than Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for six nights in October of 2014 at the end of our 38 day trip to Italy and France. It was among the very best of our travel experiences. The Palais-Royal is a special, elegant, historic building and the location is ideal for walking. Much of our walk to any major attraction was through the beautiful Tuilleries Gardens and along the Seine River. The apartment is perfectly decorated with lovely furnishings, original artwork, and a super comfortable bed. Amenities provided included a large bowl of fresh fruit, delicious breads, butter, jams, chocolate, coffee, milk and bread in the refrigerator, some basics in the cupboard for cooking, guidebooks and maps in English, and high quality bath products. Clearly this apartment was provisioned by an experienced traveler. Sophie knew more about what we needed than even we did and paid close attention to every detail. She provided a folder with restaurant recommendations, information about attractions, and instructions for everything in the apartment including a list of TV channels in English. She invited us for breakfast in her apartment and taught me how to make her amazing almond cookies. She printed our boarding passes for us in her apartment and arranged a taxi for the airport. Then she accompanied us to the curb for an early morning departure to be sure the driver spoke English and knew what we needed. Sophie and Francoise own the studio we rented and live across the hall. They are always available but never intrusive. It seemed that Sophie's mission was to insure that our trip to Paris was absolutely perfect. We were treated like friends by this gracious and charming couple, not just tenants, and indeed, it was perfect. If you get the opportunity to stay here, grab it! I wish there were more stars. Five just doesn't seem like enough.

Owner's Response: I apologize to answer you so late: I was looking at the VRBO reviews and I did not see my response behind your so magnificent and detailed review... So it is better to thank you now than never.
I hope to be able to welcome all my guests as well as I did for you. I hope to be not intrusive, and my guests are absolutely free to accept or not invitations for breakfast, cooking lesson,...
My husband and me were very glad to have welcomed you and we hope to meet you again at Paris.

Marvelous Paris Experience!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent an unbelievably wonderful nine days in Paris and this apartment
contributed to that experience! It is centrally located to the metro and buses. It is a block from the Louvre, amazing shopping and restaurants. The apartment was immaculate and the decor is beautiful! The adjustable bed was so comfortable, just what you need for a great nights sleep after a long day sight-seeing! Our hostess was so wonderful! Every question we needed answered-she answered and in addition provided a travel-log book that was so helpful! We were also surprised to find an assortment of breads and baked goods, jams, and desserts upon arrival. And as an added surprise she gave me a wonderful French cooking lesson - Almond Tiles - which are a fabulously DELICIOUS dessert! I would highly recommend this apartment to friends, family, anyone visiting Paris...it is AWESOME! My husband and I are planning to return to Paris
again and there is no other place we would want to stay then this wonderful apartment.

PURE PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
Dear Francois and Sophie,

Forgive me for taking so long to post a review of our wonderful stay in your most delightful apartment. For all prospective renters, I can only say that the descriptions and photos on the web site do not do justice to the reality. Our experience showed that the warmth, charm and beauty of this apartment far exceeded our expectation. The reality was better than the photos and descriptions. Sophie and Francois could not have been more gracious hosts. We felt as though we were being welcomed by long lost family members. The hosts' charm and demeanor made our stay that much more enjoyable. We became engaged during our stay and it proved to be a most romantic getaway. We highly recommend this property and its hosts for your next stay in Paris. We will definitely be going back to Paris and Sophie's will be where we will stay! Merci.
