The RER (fast metro line) will take you to the center of Paris in about 10 mins, or to Disneyland-Paris, Versailles etc

There is a lift in the building and the flat (55m²) is very tastefully decorated : it has a bedroom with a queen-size bed ( 160/200cm), a large living-room with a convertible sofabed, a shower and separate toilets, a fully equipped kitchen (washing-machine).

Guestbook comments from the owner

I thoroughly enjoyed my business trip to Paris. Patricia was a wonderful hostess. She responded to my emails quickly and gave very useful information on travel to/from CDG, on the area of Vincennes and Paris. The apartment is located close to the fabulous Vincennes farmer’s market, shops, and dining. It is close to the Metro/RER lines which makes traveling in and out of Paris easy. I was very happy with my stay in the apartment and hope to return in the future

confortable, accueillant, très propre,idéal

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé trois semaines très agréables dans cet appartement accueillant. Nous nous sentions totalement "chez nous". Patricia et son mari sont charmants. Appartement très bien équipé, à 2 pas du métro, du château de Vincennes, du bois et des commerces, dans un immeuble très bien entretenu. Idéal pour visiter Paris, pour aller se promener dans le parc floral de Vincennes, le château est très curieux avec son donjon récemment restauré. On est à 15 minutes de l'Hotel de Ville de Paris en métro. Nous avons testé quelques restaurants sympathiques à Vincennes. Trois fois par semaines le marché en plein air satisferont les gourmands. Merci Patricia!

A wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in this wonderful flat before, we knew that it offers everything you could possibly need, a real home from home. On arrival we were welcomed by the owner who is so lovely and sincere and makes you feel so welcome and in addition, speaks excellent English. Very much looking forward to returning next year.

A highly recommended place for a memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just have a wonderful week in this apartment. The location was perfect: 5 minutes'walk from the metro station with Paris easily accessible (15 minutes). Furthermore all the shops and restaurants were on our doorstep and the vicinity of the wood where one could go for a long walk was an added bonus.

Vincennes is a highly civilised and attractive outer suburb with excellent amenities.

The apartment was very well appointed, bright and welcoming.

The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. It was always such a pleasant retreat after a busy day in Paris.

The owners who are most friendly obviously have the well being of their guests in mind as the apartment lacked nothing. On our arrival beside a bottle of wine, we found lots of basics such as oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, jam etc..... Most appreciated particularly when you arrive late on a Saturday night.

I would strongly recommend this apartment.

Excellent Stay in Vincennes

  • 5 of 5

Overall, I'd highly recommend the property. The apartment is quite comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is modern and recently redone with very nice appliances. The bathroom is small, but functional. The owners are exceptionally friendly and showed great hospitality. They have it stocked with plenty of pots/pans/dishes/etc as well as some food basics like salt/sugar/coffee/tea/etc. The location is the other exceptional thing, within a few minutes walk of the Metro, many shops, bars, and restaurants, plus under ten minutes to the RER. I was driving most days and could usually even find a parking spot near the apartment most evenings. No complaints and many good things!

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this light-filled, comfortable and well-located flat in Vincennes greatly enhanced our visit to Paris. As others have noted, Patricia was unfailingly responsive and helpful, a pleasure to deal with, both by email and in person.

Staying in Vincennes gave us a chance to experience daily life in a charming suburban community, one with easy Metro access.

We arrived on a Sunday and recovered from our flight with a long walk through the Bois de Vincennes, where picnicking in the tall grass was clearly the order of the day.

We noted the Monoprix store (groceries and much more) as we exited the RER station from the airport, but we bought most of our groceries at the thrice-weekly outdoor market a five minute walk from the flat. Despite our minimal French, it was easy to buy from vendors, thanks to sign language and printed receipts. We bought our daily bread from one of three nearby boulangeries and found good values at the wine store.

We loved coming back at the end of a long day of sightseeing and large lunches to a quiet street and a simple supper made with superb ingredients--flavorful tomatoes, plump mussels, incredible strawberries.

My third trip to Paris was the best by far because of this flat in Vincennes.

Séjour agréable garanti !

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est très propre, bien éclairé, joliment décoré, avec une cuisine refaite à neuf et des équipements électro-ménagers récents. La situation est très agréable, tout proche du métro, des bistrots, du commerce et du Parc Floral. Quant aux propriétaires, ils sont d'une gentillesse exquise !

Que demander plus pour passer un séjour agréable à Vincennes ?
