It's the essence of the heart of the 'City of Light', On the corner of the famous 'Place de la Concorde', and close to the 'Champs Elysees'.

It was a comfortable apartment in a fabulous location.
What an amazing location for a week long holiday in Paris. It is located in a lovely building easily walkable to sights. There is an easily accessible metro stop across the street. The practical information supplied by the owner was helpful. The only downside is the spotty internet around the apartment.
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! So sorry to hear that the internet was giving you trouble, but glad you were able to enjoy all that Paris has to offer and a cozy place to come home to each night. Merci beaucoup!
Fabulous apartment in Paris
We recently returned from spending a week at this fabulous apartment. It is located within walking distance of many sites in Paris (Louvre, Tuileries Gardens, Musee d'Orsay, Les Invalides, etc), and close to shops, restaurants, and cafes. It is a very safe location, as well. We were able to find taxis and Uber just outside the front of the apartment building, and there was easy access to the Metro. The apartment was very comfortable for our family of four. We liked having a washer and dryer in the apartment. Curtains have been hung in the bathroom areas, so we did not have any problems with privacy, as mentioned by previous guests. Kristin was very responsive to our questions. We highly recommend this apartment, and we look forward to staying there during our next visit to Paris!
Perfect spot and lovely, character-filled home
The apartment was precisely as advertised, and could not have been better located. Easy walks to great restaurants, museums, parks, and the metro. Beautiful exposed beams in throughout the property and a quiet garden view -despite its location on a main thoroughfare gave the apartment a wonderful, homey feel.
The flat was equipped with everything advertised, and everything worked properly except for a small problem with the hot water heater. When called, someone came out promptly to fix it. The owners were also easy to reach, and provided some details about the flat prior to our arrival which we found helpful. They were easy to work with, and I'd highly recommend this property.
Other reviews took issue with the bathroom arrangement, and overall sense of privacy. The layout worked very well for our family, but we were traveling with three adults and three small children, so privacy may have been less of an issue than for others. Notwithstanding, we were willing to trade a small degree of privacy for the location, and were quite happy with our decision.
Amazing location and apartment
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful French apartment! The ambiance of old French furniture was charming and yet the appliances and bathrooms were modern and clean. The location of this apartment/ VRBO, right across from the Tuileries and the Place de la Concorde, allowed us to easily walk and enjoy the amazing French marvels of the Louvre, Place Vendome, and the Tuileries Gardens. The neighborhood restaurants had great food and we even enjoyed a Saturday morning market in close proximity and took our purchases to eat near the Jeu de Paume and just people watched. It made our time more relaxing after touring the other sites in Paris. The view of the Eiffel Tower and the obelisk in the Place de la Concorde is one that is spectacular from a distance.
Great location...but not comfortable
The good stuff: the location is great. The apartment was clean. The bathroom situation would not be okay for two couples. But the bathrooms were newly upgraded and we made it work. We walked the 60 stairs to the apartment. That allowed an extra pastry.
The not so good stuff: no wifi. Beds weren't comfortable. The living room furniture was old. The springs were gone from all the furniture. And the chairs and sofa felt dirty. The newest piece was the 80s coffee table. The television only had French stations. (Yes, I know we were in Paris) It would have been nice to have CNN or Bloomberg.
I'm so sorry to hear you weren't comfortable! We purchased new beds and bedding in November 2016 so that's disappointing. The bathroom situation has been resolved with a curtain between the washroom and bathroom areas, as well as one in the back bedroom; you're right that it tends to be an apartment that works best for families. And I know that you weren't able to contact us or our housekeeper because of the wifi, but I wish you could have! That is a very easy fix we could've had up and running quickly for you; it's so nice to have that while traveling.
I hope you did enjoy the location and the ambience of a small family apartment in the heart of Paris. Thank you for being our guests!
Fantastic Location & Wonderful Hosts!!
