Very pleased with our stay

We stayed in Petit Nuage and we had an excellent experience. It was very clean, compact, well-stocked, and everything functioned well. It was also pleasant and airy, despite being petit, and the size was perfect for two people. We really enjoyed having an apartment to come home to each day, and it was in a great location. It's located a block from a lovely pedestrian market street with corner open-air cafes, and at least one, if not two, of every kind of food shop -- chocolate, wine, cheese, bakeries, butchers, fruit and vegetable shops, a small grocery store, and much more. The street was actually recommended by a tour guide we overheard telling a couple to go there for a great experience. We bought fresh food every day and cooked in the apartment with no troubles. Right around the apartments is a pleasant, clean, friendly little paved square, where a lot of kids gather in the afternoons to play soccer, and people sit on the benches. No one bothered us and we felt quite safe, when we had to come in late at night, or at other times of the day. We liked overlooking the courtyard, and on the weekend were serenaded by lovely music coming through the open windows from another apartment. The apartment has a television, but we didn't have time to watch it, but the internet connection was important. There was some difficulty with it the first night, due to a previous renter's damage, but it was fixed very quickly the next morning when we mentioned it. The staff was friendly and helpful, and it was convenient to be able to buy airport train tickets there in the morning when we checked out instead of fiddling at the station when we were in a hurry. A previous commenter mentioned the stairs. They are indeed steep and small. But we did not find them at all to be difficult to manage, weren't out of breath at the top when we went up them each day, or anything. Carrying suitcases was long even with our small carry-ons, but you only have to do that once! The apartment is within easy walking distance of almost anything on that side of the river -- we walked almost everywhere -- and is a very quick couple of minutes' walk around the block to the metro, which is on an easily-accessible line. We were very, very pleased with our stay here, including the price, and look forward to being able to stay here again the next time we visit.
