perfect getaway in Paris for two
My husband and I stayed at this very nicely furnished apartment in the Latin quarter. It is a short walk away from the Notre Dame, and is in a beautiful part of Paris. It had lots of amenities, we found very useful the coffee maker and washer/dryer combo in particular. We spent many evenings sipping wine, eating baguettes (Kayser bakery not too far away) and watching people go by outside the window. One thing to note is the hot water is only hot enough for one shower at a time, so stagger then at least an hour apart. The apartment is on the 2nd floor (1 flight of stairs), and the stairs a winding and narrow, so if you have mobility troubles it might not be the best place. At the end of our stay our view was disturbed by scaffolding around the building which we were disappointed by, especially because the shutters could not open and we could not see outside. If the scaffolding was up throughout our stay it would not have been nearly as enjoyable.
It is in an area I would classify as very touristy, and as such recommend NOT eating at any of the area restaurants, except for the gyro place (around the corner not downstairs) which students frequent. If you are a light sleeper be warned there is a nightclub across the street, while you can't hear any music, there are people talking loudly until the early hours of the morning, especially on the weekend. We quite enjoyed the noise, and hustle and bustle of the area.
The apartment is very close to the St. Michel metro line, and we had a direct line to Gare Du Nord (Eurostar) as well as the airport. Also, a direct line to the Eiffel tower and the Montparnasse station. There are a lot of cafe's nearby where we sat for an espresso, or wine and watched people go by.
Antoine was very responsive, gave us a code to enter the apartment so we could come as we pleased, and good wifi service. I would absolutely recommend this apartment for a rental to my friends or family, it is especially great for the price.
