About The Owner

I am an Architect/Engineer who enjoys meeting and helping people. I grew up in Paris but have spent most of my adult life in the U.S. I enjoy good food and wine and constantly seek out new and interesting Parisian restaurants.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose 15th Arrondissement Vaugirard

I fell in love with my apartment as soon as I saw it because of the panoramic views of Paris from every window, and its site on the Seine riverbank. Its location by the Eiffel Tower in central Paris is ideal. I had looked for months for a place like this.

As an Architect/Engineer, I was impressed with the exterior and interior design of the building. The apartment is spacious as well as functional.

What makes this apartment unique

I enjoy the ease in which I can go anywhere in Paris from my apartment;two subway stations(Bir Hakim & ST Charles) and 4 bus lines(70,42,62,72)are nearby. Also, there is a taxi stand by the building.

The location of my apartment in a typically Parisian neighborhood is another attraction. It's a four minute walk to a major supermarket, Monoprix, and several bakeries,restaurants, and cafes are close by as well as a brand new shopping mall with movie theatres. Walking or jugging along the riverbank is always a pleasure as is visiting the farmer's market, Tuesday and Fridays mornings, on the nearby Rue St Charles.

We just spent a wonderful week in Victor's apartment. The view is incredible and everything about the apartment is welcoming and relaxing after a busy day of seeing the nearby sights and attractions. The apartment is well equipped and beds are very comfortable. It is spacious and beautifully decorated. Victor is very charming and it is easy and delightful to work out the details and to conduct business with him. He has a wonderful list of recommended restaurants and is available to answer any questions before arrival. I would highly recommend both the apartment and it's owner. We would love to return some day.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this location for one week and found everything exactly as stated by the owner as true. Located in the newer part of Paris but just walking distance to older charming neighborhoods. Having the convenience of the Monoprix and the Hotel Novatel next door was great. There is also a farmers market 2x's a week just around the corner to enjoy the Paris market atmosphere. The building is named the Tour Totem and is safe and has most of the modern amenities except for a dishwasher and clothes dryer. Kitchen is well stocked for those wanting to eat in. The furnishings, towels and bedding are clean but a little dated and worn. We found the apt to be very spacious and comfortable and enjoyed the view immensely. We would recommend this apt due to the view and location and hope to return someday!

Apartment with a view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 days in Paris this past July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Victor's apartment. The apartment was clean, spacious, and inviting with a wonderful view of the Seine and the fireworks on Bastille Day. It's location was great, about a 20 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. It was handy to the mall, the Monoprix, bus #42, the RER, and the metro. The washer was small but did a nice job. Although there was not a dryer, clothes did dry quickly on the drying rack. Having a kitchen made breakfasts and an occasional dinner easy. The apartment was a wonderful home while in Paris and Victor was extremely helpful answering our pre-visit questions and making our stay as great as it was. Although the kitchen could use an updating everything worked well. We loved our time there and enjoyed unwinding looking at the Seine after a busy day.

Living Like a Paris Local

  • 5 of 5

Victor's apartment is in a prime location with a spectacular view of the Seine and partial view of the Eiffel Tower. It's within walking distance of the Eiffel, the RER train station, shopping mall and Monoprix which has groceries, clothing and drugstore products. The bed, sofabed and pillows were very comfortable. We bought food at the Monoprix and had several meals in the apartment which really helped since eating at restaurants and cafes can be very expensive. The building concierge were helpful when we had a little problem opening the apartment with the key. Be advised that the lights go off in the hallway as a means of conserving energy and it's very dark, but there's a small pad on the outside of the apartment door that you push to light the hallway again. We thoroughly enjoyed being in the apartment and feeling like we actually lived in Paris. This property is a definite 5 star! Thank you, Victor!

This is the way to visit Paris! It is the best of both worlds...tourist and local. Staying in Victor's apartment was awesome. It felt like home as soon as we stepped inside. It was very clean and comfortable. The beds and pillows were just right. It was reassuring knowing that the friendly people at the reception desk on the second floor were there to help us if we needed anything. Cooking our own meals in the kitchen and using the washing machine saved us a lot of money. The location was perfect, the views were breath taking, and the beautiful rooftop gardens were blooming as we walked the short distance to the Monoprix and nearby stores and cafes. The new mall was clean, light and very impressive. The taxi stand in front of the Novotel Hotel next door was very handy, although we walked to almost every place that we visited. The Eiffel Tower and RER station were nearby. Victor was very honest, kind, and helpful. On a scale of 1-5, this Paris apartment rates a 5+.

We had a great stay in Paris at Victors apartment. It was wonderful, and we hope to rent this apartment again soon. Victor was very helpful in making sure we had all the information we needed to make our arrival in Paris go smoothly. We stayed for one week with our 3 teenage daughters. It is a great location for exploring Paris, and has convenient shopping nearby. The appartment was very clean and well furnished. It was all we could of hoped for, and more. Thank you Victor for the wonderful dining suggestions, we dined at a couple and really enjoyed them. Thanks again for renting us your apartment!
