Comfort and space in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment. It was very comfortable, and the location couldn't be better. There were only five of us, so the teenagers enjoyed having their own rooms. There would have been plenty of room if our original group of 10 people had been able to come, with four double beds, two single beds, and two large futons in the dining room and den. The two bathrooms in the back were clean and large. The half-bath in the front cubbyhole was very small, but useful for middle-of-the-night trips. The location was wonderful -- the grocery store, metro stop, good restaurants, and an excellent bakery all were only a few blocks away, and we will never forget sitting on the upper patio, watching the lights twinkle on the Eiffel Tower. We enjoyed relaxing around the table every evening, waving at the dinner boats and feeling the evening breeze from the river. Jean-Michel was a wonderful host, staying in close touch from the day we made the reservations, helping us get settled and arranging for a car to take us to the train station at 5:00 am. The only disadvantage to this apartment is that we may never again again be able to find one that is as wonderful as this one. We already are discussing when we can return.

Un havre de tranquillité en plein coeur de Paris

  • 4 of 5

Une location exceptionnelle qui sort de l'ordinaire. Du volume, du confort. On se sent comme chez soi. Idéalement situé avec une vue magnifique sur la Tour Eiffel. Pas de bruit de circulation ou de métro alors que tout est si proche. Juste le plaisir d'être sur l'eau. Les enfants ont adoré. Le propriétaire est très sympathique et soucieux de notre bien-être. . Un super week-end. Nous reviendrons.

Nearest Train

Car: not necessary

Vry close to the Eiffel Tower, you only have 500 feet to take the metro, RER, bus, taxi, or Batobus, which will take you close to most monuments of Paris. T

With the bike station Vélib beside, you will find bike paths, which take place over several miles, until the famous popular taverns of the Marne's river.A very privileged position, near the the Eiffel Tower,the Trocadero or the Champs de Mars, will encourage you to stroll along the waterfront, watching the barges, symbols of another time.For the entertainment of the little ones, the park Eurodysney is at direct reach by RER train or by highway A4. In a floating swimming pool at 1 mile, you will enjoy the sunbath close at the riverside.Many shops and restaurants, piano bars around here.
