Fabulous apartment - really made our stay!
We really can't praise this apartment enough! The views, the location, the facilities...it was just what we were looking for and more!
We chose this apartment primarily for the view of the Eiffel Tower but the photo's on the website just don't do it justice. The tower is actually a lot closer in reality than it appears on photo's and you could see it not only from the lounge but from the main bedroom too (so you can lie in bed and watch the illuminations (the Tower is lit up at night but also 'sparkles' on the hour - quite magical!).
Tha apartment itself is nicely decorated with a very authentic french feel, which was just what we were looking for. The lounge is bright and airy with 2 big french windows to take in the view. Plenty of cupboard space, all the facilities you could need and our boys were very pleased with the TV and free Wifi! (though if you're scared of heights I'd avoid the top bunk in the second bedroom!)
The area itself is lovely - very chic and 'untouristy' despite being a stones throw from the Trocadero. Passy has lots of nice shops and cafes and there are 2 supermarkets and a couple of patisseries literally a few minutes walk away - handy for groceries and to nip out in the morning for a fresh baguette and croissants for breakfast!
Handy for both Passy and Trocadero Metro stations (both within a 5 min walk) which then connects you to all the sights in Paris but also the Trocadero is just down the road which means the Eiffel Tower itself is a very scenic 10-15 min walk away. We also walked to the Arc de Triomphe from the apartment - again a pleasant walk of about 20 mins. Ideally located.
Eija, the owner, was very pleasant to deal with, answering all our queries by e-mail before we arrived and then met us on our arrival at the apartment. She spoke perfect english so there was no problem with communication (which is good as we speak very little french!) and was very helpful. There was even a few basic supplies in the apartment (water, juice,etc and the chocolates and bottle of wine were much appreciated!) which was a nice touch.
We will definately rent this apartment again next time we go to Paris and would highly recommend it to anyone.
