Perfect Paris Perch
This apartment and the helpfulness of Benedicte were an absolute joy. She was very quick to respond to e-mail and streamlined the reservation process. Her directions to the apartment were clear and easy to follow and upon arrival she met us and even supplied maps and travel books for Paris. After she got us settled in in and familiarized she even went with us to return our rental car which was a major boon in that it was very difficult to find and our French language skills are poor at best. At the end of our stay Benedicte was both punctual and helpful and we felt we were parting with a dear friend.
The apartment was far greater than our expectations; very tastefully decorated, large and airy, great light, charming Parisian rooftop views, comfortable bed, plenty of linens, lovely and varied books, music and movies, superb entertainment system, land-line telephone, balcony off of the bedroom, well supplied kitchen/pantry, good appliances, quiet building and street, good security, elevator, nearby Metro stop (Menilmontant), several supermarkets, a beautiful church at the end of the block with lovely bells and on Tuesday and Friday an open-air street market at the other end of the block.
The only limitation is the tight bathroom and even tighter shower stall; if you're wider than normal you won't fit, period. Two little things that we would've liked would've been to know the land-line number and to have had discount-program numbers for the adjacent supermarkets. Other than that we can't think of a thing that wasn't delightful during our stay and would highly recommend this let to anyone.
To sum it up we didn't want to leave and can't wait to stay here again!
