Michel met us upon arrival and was so kind and helpful. The apartment was spacious, clean and located in an incredible neighborhood. It made our stay in Paris even more special than it already was . We will be back and plan to stay there again.

Perfect Parisian experience!

  • 5 of 5

Michel met us upon arrival and welcomed us to his charming apartment. If you are seeking an excellent location, comfortable accommodations with everything you need - this is the place. Within a block or two are a grocery store, shops, a variety of cafes and the metro. This apartment was perfect for our family of seven and was well-equipped. Highly recommended and we hope to return in the not too distant future.

A fabulous center of warmth, and tranquility. And it’s as beautiful as its pictures.

  • 5 of 5

The five of us arrived mid-day and were warmly greeted by the owner. We immediately recognized how special both the owner and apartment were and how fortunate we were to spend a week there. Centrally located and only a short walk to every destination we anticipated visiting as well as great restaurants, cafes and parks. And if you want to explore further sites, a taxi stand is only 30 feet away.

Walking into the apartment for the first time, you will be surprised by the unexpected large spaces, the 20 foot ceilings, the wonderful art , a fully stocked kitchen, and multiple bathrooms and various sized comfortable bedrooms. Our host had gone out of his way to make us feel welcome and had stocked the kitchen with enough essentials (delicious bread, baguette, butter, cheese, and wine) to get started. And, everything worked! Our only regret: we needed an extra week. We are hoping that we can return in the next year or two.

Thank you Michael for being such a warm host and providing us with such terrific memories.

Immaculate and in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much to Michel and Maria for our terrific stay at the apartment. We couldn’t have asked for a better appointed apartment—every detail was well thought out. Michel was a gracious host, as we arrived to find fresh fruits and bakery goods, wine, and necessities at our disposal in the refrigerator. Michel also was a tremendous help in securing reservations for our family for dinner the first night of our stay. The location is very central to everything our family wanted to do—about a 10 minute walk to the Orsay, 15 minutes walk to the Louvre, about 30 minutes walk to Notre Dame, metro was about 5 minutes away. On the street, you can find a Monoprix, several pharmacies, wine store, little grab n go store, a boulangerie, lots of great cafes. Thank you, Michel—we hope to visit again!

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It is beautifully and fully furnished. The location is excellent, near the Metro, bus lines and shopping. We ate in some meals and also used the restaurants nearby.

Michel Colnat, the owner was very helpful and extremely gracious. He met us upon arrival, introduced to the apartment, was available to us during the stay and helped when we left. It was like we were at home.
