Wonderful stay in a cozy apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience life like a real Parisian! Being spacious, cozy, and very clean i couldn't have made a better choice. My partner and I were happy to have the space of this apartment after being cramped in a tight london hotel the week prior. Benedicte our host was very responsive, helpful and sweet as she handed her home of 27 years over to us for the week. We felt welcomed as if it was our home and very quickly learned the neighborhood which was very comfortable and safe. Although it may not be the nicest or most popular neighborhood to stay, it is close to a very trendy, young and emerging area of Paris, which is great when you want to be away from the tourists for a bit and live like the locals. (Visit Mama Shelter for dinner which is 2 stops south headed towards Nation on the M2 train if you want to taste some of the best food in Paris and enjoy a young social crowd.) But when your ready to see the sights the metro is literally at the end of her street and will take you everywhere you want to go for about 2 Euros! Overall my partner and I really enjoyed our stay here and will come back next year.

Thank you Benedicte for the use of your wonderful home!

Great apartment and neighborhood in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Bénédicte's Paris apartment. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed having a well appointed kitchen and washer for clothing. This is a residential street with a church, bakery and cafe just down the block, and convenient grocery stores and a produce market, perfect! With Bénédicte's encouragement and map book collection we went everywhere by bus so we could see the local neighborhoods. The bus is frequent and goes to the tourist and museum areas. There is also a subway stop at the corner. Twice a week there is a street market just outside the subway station. The area is diverse, interesting and safe.

Wonderful, spacious, well-appointed apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many rental apartments in Paris over the years, and I have to say that Benedicte's apartment in Menilmontant is my absolute favorite. More beautiful than the pictures, spacious, clean and definitely the best equipped of any apartment I've rented. I cooked dinner for the first time in Paris, and had everything I needed. There are numerous books, movies, cd's, etc. Benedicte is so helpful, I was already familiar with the neighborhood (it's my favorite in Paris) but she is available to help anyone find their way around. Highly recommended!

Absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better time at Benedicte's lovely apartment. The apartment was clean, very well appointed, and just as light filled and charming as the pictures indicate. Benedicte could not have been more thorough and solicitous, and we really felt welcomed and at ease in her space. We didn't know much about the Menilmontant/Belleville area before booking the apt, but we ended up being so happy we chose to stay here. The neighborhood is vibrant and lively, culturally very diverse, and genuinely friendly. It is not in the direct "center" of town, but all of that is very accessible via the Metro and bus system, which we had no trouble figuring out and using. It's a great neighborhood to walk around as well. There is a lot of really great street art in the area, Pere Lachaise is close by, and Oberkampf, which is very close by, is a fun area for bar hopping. That being said, the street the apt is on is actually very residential and quiet at night, which was nice as well. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Paris Perch

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and the helpfulness of Benedicte were an absolute joy. She was very quick to respond to e-mail and streamlined the reservation process. Her directions to the apartment were clear and easy to follow and upon arrival she met us and even supplied maps and travel books for Paris. After she got us settled in in and familiarized she even went with us to return our rental car which was a major boon in that it was very difficult to find and our French language skills are poor at best. At the end of our stay Benedicte was both punctual and helpful and we felt we were parting with a dear friend.

The apartment was far greater than our expectations; very tastefully decorated, large and airy, great light, charming Parisian rooftop views, comfortable bed, plenty of linens, lovely and varied books, music and movies, superb entertainment system, land-line telephone, balcony off of the bedroom, well supplied kitchen/pantry, good appliances, quiet building and street, good security, elevator, nearby Metro stop (Menilmontant), several supermarkets, a beautiful church at the end of the block with lovely bells and on Tuesday and Friday an open-air street market at the other end of the block.

The only limitation is the tight bathroom and even tighter shower stall; if you're wider than normal you won't fit, period. Two little things that we would've liked would've been to know the land-line number and to have had discount-program numbers for the adjacent supermarkets. Other than that we can't think of a thing that wasn't delightful during our stay and would highly recommend this let to anyone.

To sum it up we didn't want to leave and can't wait to stay here again!

Our second delightful sojourn at Benedicte's

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent another wonderful week at Benedicte's lovely apartment in the Menilmontant area of Paris. The tasteful furnishing, excellent facilities and superb transport links make this apartment the perfect base for us to explore the city. It is always impeccably clean, comfortable and quiet. It is particularly useful to have the use of WiFi here to allow us to hook up our netbook to plan our days and book tickets etc. This year we made more of an effort to explore the local area on the higher ground at the top of Rue Menilmontant and around Belleville and found some lovely spots; in particular the stunning views of the city from the high point in Parc de Belleville. The church of Notre Dame de la Croix is certainly worth a visit in itself. We consider ourselves very lucky indeed to have found Benedicte and her delightful apartment and will certainly be returning as often as we can.
