Great locale and friendly owner made this a wonderful stay
When my wife and I were looking for a location that was both affordable as well as centrally located, we came across this apartment and reached out to the owner, Caroline.
Caroline was not only friendly via emails, she was wonderful in person. She gave us a tour of the apartment, which had all the amenities of home, and then showed us a folder that she had compiled for our stay. This folder had just about everything, from instructions on how to work all the appliances in the apartment to her recommendations on local eateries to how to get to all of the best sights and things to do/see/eat while there! Needless to say, we found this folder invaluable during our stay and it frequently accompanied us on our walking tours to all the nearby sights.
The apartment itself was beautiful. It has a very warm feel to it and was warm and cozy even though the weather outside was less inviting. Located right off the main street, the apartment was close enough to the sights to make it only a short skip and a step away and yet far enough where we were not subjected to any of the usual traffic noises you would associate with being in such a cosmopolitan city. The apartment had all of the amenities of home such as a coffee maker, washing machine, tv with cable, laptop with internet, plates, utensils and even pots and pans if you felt like making something at home instead of going out. There are two market situated no more than two blocks away (Monoprix and a smaller one) that pretty much offered anything you would want during your stay in Paris. There are upwards of a dozen+ restaurants and small shops all around you (no more than three blocks away) which will offer you a choice a different cuisines as well as sweet shops (chocolate nirvana) nearby.
All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and should our travels lead us back to the Paris area (maybe in the future when we have have kids) we will be sure to reach out to Caroline again to see if we can re-spark all the charm and romance we found during our stay in Paris.
Tourists without a Car,
