Fantastic, charming apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fantastic stay in the apartment. It's charming, beautiful and big - there's plenty of space and it really feels like a big home, giving each of us lots of privacy when needed. We had 2 keys to share between us, making coming and going separately very easy. The location is perfect - close to everything and not noisy at night. When we return, we're definitely staying there again!

wonderful apartment for our family of six

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with our four teenage children and this apartment made our week-long stay in Paris so much more enjoyable. The apartment was beautiful, well-equipped, and very clean. The kitchen was better equipped than mine at home! The owners really made an effort to provide a lot of extras to make our stay more comfortable - the wifi was great, there was a computer for our use, and the information given on the neighborhood (restaurant suggestions, etc) when we arrived was extremely helpful.

The location of the apartment was terrific - the Metro station was across the street, and we were able to walk to the Picasso Museum and Pompidou Center easily on our first day there. We found the train system in Paris to be wonderful - we never waited more than 5 minutes for a train and the apartment was a well-located home base. There's a small market for essentials across the street, and it was nice to be staying in an actual neighborhood rather than an area with a ton of tourists, I think it gave us a better sense of the city.

For our family traveling with teenagers, being able to go back in the evenings to a place that felt like home instead of a hotel made the trip so much more enjoyable. Everyone had a bit of space, and we were able to stock up on snacks and stay in at night to cook dinner if we chose. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough.

Perfect family space for exploring Paris

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6 including 4 teenagers, and it was ideal for us being steps from the Metro, across the street from a small grocery market, and next door to a pub restaurant with several others nearby. It is an authentic residential neighborhood, but also within a 30-40 minute walk of the Louvre and Notre Dame cathedral. The Pere Lachaise cemetery nearby is also worth a visit (especially for fans of the Doors!). The flat is well furnished with kitchen essentials, comfortable beds and updated bathroom facilities, and the owners could not be more attentive during the process. Great value!

C'est magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 4-day stay with our large family of 9. The apartment has a great layout, is tastefully decorated and is in a super neighborhood in 11th arr. ... literally steps from the Rue St Maur metro stop on line 3. It was a great place to relax and spread out when we were not exploring the city. The cafes and restaraunts in the neighborhood are also plentiful and nice and Carrefour City is across the street for groceries ... we ate next door at the Barber Shop which we really enjoyed.

Mathilde met us for check-in, she is a super nice lady who gave us a thorough tour of the apartment and had a book full of information ready for us.

I cannot say enough positive about this apartment - its super nice and the owners are good people. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to see Paris and also have a nice apartment to get away from the crowd and relax in a nice surrounding city neighborhood.

Lovely apartment close to Metro and great for a family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (2 adults, 14 year-old son, 12 year-old daughter and 10 year-old daughter) really enjoyed this lovely apartment. We stayed 3 nights at the end of a 3-week visit to France. We initially stayed 10 days in a small, 1-bedroom plus nook apartment in the 1st A, and wanted to splurge on our final days in Paris with a larger, traditional Paris apartment, and we loved it!It was really very large for a Paris apartment - with a living room, dining room that included 2 desks, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a coffee nook and kitchen with table for 2. It was a wonderful treat to have so much space at the end of our 3-week trip to France and worth the cost splurge. The bathrooms are very new with stand up showers in both. The second bathroom also has a very new and digital washer AND drier (all of our other apartments throughout France did not have the drier - so this was really nice to have and enabled us to wash and DRY all of our dirty clothes.) We all appreciated the WiFi as well.

It is very nicely decorated and makes you feel like you are living in Paris, not just bunking down for a few nights. A couple of concerns for families with small children is that the beautiful old floor squeaks and can be heard by the people below. Know that you can't have little feet running all over at odd times. This was not a concern for our family, though I kept reminding my 3 kids not to walk so heavily. And sounds do travel in the hall and to the apartments nearby. But really this is the same for most all Paris apartments in these lovely old buildings. The view of the buildings and street below made us feel like being in the hub of Paris. Some may feel the street is noisy, so closing the windows dampens the street noise, but this wasn't an issue for us. The bedrooms are all on the courtyard side, not the street side and you don't hear the street noise in the bedrooms.The apartment has a small, newer elevator (holds 2 adults and a child all standing, or 1 adult with baggage), which was great for me (arthritis in both knees). My husband and kids didn't mind the 4 flights of stairs.

Communication was easy. Check-in was simple. We had an issue with our train and so we were delayed nearly 6 hours, arriving at 10:30pm. I communicated our delay via email and phone and Mathilde ensured us we'd have no problem checking in and not to worry. She arranged for someone to meet us there since she then couldn't, and we had absolutely no problems. We would stay again!
