I thoroughly enjoyed my business trip to Paris. Patricia was a wonderful hostess. She responded to my emails quickly and gave very useful information on travel to/from CDG, on the area of Vincennes and Paris. The apartment is located close to the fabulous Vincennes farmer’s market, shops, and dining. It is close to the Metro/RER lines which makes traveling in and out of Paris easy. I was very happy with my stay in the apartment and hope to return in the future
We have just have a wonderful week in this apartment. The location was perfect: 5 minutes'walk from the metro station with Paris easily accessible (15 minutes). Furthermore all the shops and restaurants were on our doorstep and the vicinity of the wood where one could go for a long walk was an added bonus.
Vincennes is a highly civilised and attractive outer suburb with excellent amenities.
The apartment was very well appointed, bright and welcoming.
The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. It was always such a pleasant retreat after a busy day in Paris.
The owners who are most friendly obviously have the well being of their guests in mind as the apartment lacked nothing. On our arrival beside a bottle of wine, we found lots of basics such as oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, jam etc..... Most appreciated particularly when you arrive late on a Saturday night.
I would strongly recommend this apartment.
Overall, I'd highly recommend the property. The apartment is quite comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is modern and recently redone with very nice appliances. The bathroom is small, but functional. The owners are exceptionally friendly and showed great hospitality. They have it stocked with plenty of pots/pans/dishes/etc as well as some food basics like salt/sugar/coffee/tea/etc. The location is the other exceptional thing, within a few minutes walk of the Metro, many shops, bars, and restaurants, plus under ten minutes to the RER. I was driving most days and could usually even find a parking spot near the apartment most evenings. No complaints and many good things!
Staying in this light-filled, comfortable and well-located flat in Vincennes greatly enhanced our visit to Paris. As others have noted, Patricia was unfailingly responsive and helpful, a pleasure to deal with, both by email and in person.
Staying in Vincennes gave us a chance to experience daily life in a charming suburban community, one with easy Metro access.
We arrived on a Sunday and recovered from our flight with a long walk through the Bois de Vincennes, where picnicking in the tall grass was clearly the order of the day.
We noted the Monoprix store (groceries and much more) as we exited the RER station from the airport, but we bought most of our groceries at the thrice-weekly outdoor market a five minute walk from the flat. Despite our minimal French, it was easy to buy from vendors, thanks to sign language and printed receipts. We bought our daily bread from one of three nearby boulangeries and found good values at the wine store.
We loved coming back at the end of a long day of sightseeing and large lunches to a quiet street and a simple supper made with superb ingredients--flavorful tomatoes, plump mussels, incredible strawberries.
My third trip to Paris was the best by far because of this flat in Vincennes.
L'appartement est très propre, bien éclairé, joliment décoré, avec une cuisine refaite à neuf et des équipements électro-ménagers récents. La situation est très agréable, tout proche du métro, des bistrots, du commerce et du Parc Floral. Quant aux propriétaires, ils sont d'une gentillesse exquise !
Que demander plus pour passer un séjour agréable à Vincennes ?
We spent a wonderful week here during the summer. The flat is ideally located for visits to central Paris, Versailles and Disneyland Paris. The flat is located on a lovely quiet little street and the metro station (Château de Vincennes) is just around the corner. The Vincennes RER stop for trains to Disneyland Paris is a short walk away.
We were met by the owner's daughter who showed us around the flat. On our departure day she kindly bought us a bag of pastries which were much appreciated by our daughter - merci beaucoup!
The flat is really lovely and very comfortable. Patricia, the owner, has thought of everything, even down to the umbrellas in the hallway cupboard - thankfully they were never needed!
The are lovely markets in Vincennes and our daughter was amazed by the choice of fruit and vegetables. We bought baguettes and croissants from a lovely bakery on Rue de Fontenay and there is a well stocked supermarket (Monoprix) on Rue du Midi - all within walking distance.
A visit to the Parc Floral in Vincennes is a must, especially with children. Our daughter was overwhelmed by the number of playgrounds there. The Donjon (Keep) of the Château de Vincennes is well worth a visit. And for an evening meal, go to La Table des Troys on Av. de Paris, a few minutes from the flat, the service was impeccable and the food amazing.
We would love to return someday to this wonderful flat and to beautiful Vincennes.
This property proved an ideal location for our holiday. It was located in a very quiet road and yet was within a stones throw away from Vincennes beautiful park as well as its metro station. The flat was very clean and had every facility one could possibly need. The owners greeted us on arrival and were incredibly courteous, polite and very helpful and were only too pleased to answer any questions we had for them.
We would certainly recommend this property to everyone as we believe it is wonderful value for money. We will definately be returning to this lovely flat and cannot wait for our next visit.
