A special thank you to Rene and Danielle for giving us such a warm welcome and providing clear and specific instructions for our 7 night stay. Our train ride to the apartment was cut short due to a strike and we wound up an hour late for check-in. Rene, who speaks perfect English was very patient and thorough to ensure our needs would be met throughout the entire week to include suggestions for local Cafe's and grocery stores. As others have mentioned, the apartment is precisely as represented, immaculately clean, includes all of the necessary accessories and the bed is comfortable. The location is close to all the activities, transportation and attractions, yet the courtyard is very private, quiet, and beautifully decorated with cobblestone, flowers and statues. We started many of our days by walking to Monoprix for a fresh baguette, cheese, salami and wine, then closing the day by taking the few steps to the Seine to watch boats or listen to music while enjoying our most favorite French meal. It was such a treat to be so close, have a kitchen with refrigerator at our disposal and extremely relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. We are so fortunate to have found this hidden treasure and couldn't have asked for nicer hosts. Merci beaucoup Rene & Danielle.......your great communication and wonderful apartment made our trip extra special!
