My husband and I traveled from Boston and my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson traveled from Burkina Faso for a trip in October 2018. Félicia was very helpful with directions, instructions for the apartment, and shopping recommendations.
The multi-level apartment was fun and comfortable. Félicia's daughters bedroom had a magical sleeping loft but we were not comfortable putting my young grandson in a dark unfamiliar room with a ladder. He was very comfortable with a spare mattress on the floor of the bedroom. The other bedrooms were very comfortable. I think we all wanted to sleep in Ziggy's loft.
The weather seemed unseasonably cool so we did not get much use of the beautiful terrace but the plants cascading down from the door was nice.
We ate at several good restaurants close by but also walked to places towards the Bastille and Marais and took the Metro for restaurants in the Latin Quarter.
There is a playground a couple of blocks away that entertained my grandson. As did watching the boats go through the locks on the canal.
We are tourists and were interested in the museums, the walks along the parks, and the restaurants. I think it was a half hour walk to the Louvre (more or less in the center of the things we wanted to do). The Gare de l'Est is a couple of blocks away and after a few days of all walking we started taking the Metro. The Louvre and St. Michel are both on direct lines out of Gare de l'Est.
We took the train from the airport and the Gar du Nord was an easy walk. My husband and son went to a Paris St Germain match which was also an easy Metro ride.
The apartment was fun and comfortable. The washing machine, dryer, microwave, and dishwasher made the stay very easy. And the kitchen was wonderful.
When we travel we like to go out to eat as often as possible but in Paris (with a four year old!) it's also nice to stay in with some wine and cheese and cook a nice meal from the ingredients from the wonderful markets in Paris. This kitchen was wonderful to cook in. Espresso machine, nespresso machine, nice gas stove, wonderful pots and pans, all the plates and bowls and cups and glasses you could possibly need. We've rented apartments in Europe, US, Mexico, and the Caribbean and the kitchens are often very challenging. This is really a wonderful kitchen to cook in.
When I remember this trip I will think of Félicia's wonderful sharp knives :)
We were very comfortable in Félicia's home.
The apartment/petit maison is lovely.
Down a quiet ‘passage’ in a great neghorhood. It is very well designed and the bedroom is large, the bed comfortable. Lots of drawers to put clothes away.
Always very pleasant to return there after a long day walking around. Beautifully maintained. Highly recommend it.
