Guestbook comments from the owner
This was the perfect base for our 10th wedding anniversay trip to Paris without the kids - cosy, romantic and very atmospheric. Enjoyed the squashy sofa, classical CDs + full size bathtub, rare anywhere in France let alone Paris! Also enjoyed discovering a different neighbourhood that is still very well placed for our favourite haunts. For a special occasion 'Le Villaret' does a fabulous menu and is practically on the door-step.
We had a wonderful time and would recommend to others.
