We have been to Paris several times before and this time wanted to experience a neighborhood versus staying right in the heart of things. Julia's apartment was the perfect choice. It is a quiet neighborhood and very convenient to the Metro. The apartment was extremely clean and neat and has everything you need; the beds are very comfortable - an important feature. Moreover, Julia lives in the building so is available to answer questions or deal with any issues that might arise (none did on our trip).
We made good use of the Monoprix grocery down the street and enjoyed the farmer's market right around the corner on Sunday morning. And of course we visited the Boulangerie on the corner - several times.
Not far away is Rue Daguerre, off of Avenue General Leclerc near the Denfert Rochereau Metro (also near the RER from Charles de Gaulle airport); the street dedicates a few blocks to pedestrian only and has a number of good restaurants. We especially liked Peret Brasserie.
My daughter went for a run to Parc Montsouris one afternoon - it is very close.
We would definitely stay here again.
This was our family's first adventure using VRBO, so while I was a bit nervous being a first time adventurer, Julia helped guide us through the reservation process and made us feel at home. The apartment was perfectly comfortable for our family of four. We never felt on top of each other. The second bedroom has a set of bunk beds that our 15 and 12 yr old were delighted to use. There was adequate kitchen space for getting making coffee to go with our morning croissant (the boulangerie is just up the street) and putting together dinner in the evening (again, stop by the boulangerie and pick up a baguette). The place is delightfully quiet at night so we could easily rest each evening after a full day in Paris. The location was perfect as it is about equidistant from two metro stops that connect you to different sides of the city (Eiffel one way, Notre Dame the other). We spend five wonderful days in Julia's apartment and would happily return in he future.
We spent a week in this beautiful apartment .it was nice and comfortable .the owner was very nice and helpfully ,she explained to us the region. The apartment location is great there are many bakeries and restaurants especially Arabian restaurant nearby. Two_steps away there is along shopping street .. If I will come back to Paris sure I hope to stay there again.
From early in the booking process Julia was great to deal with, prompt and thorough in her responses. 5 nights as a family of 6. Could not have been more convenient, close to Metro restaurants and shops. We really appreciated being out of central touristy Paris. A wonderful Boulangerie in both directions. Julia met us on arrival and was very helpful providing local info like location of shops and restaurants to get us started. Basic Kitchen but sufficient for simple meal preparation. Highly recommend.
We used Julia's apartment as our base of operations during our week in Paris, and it could hardly have been more convenient. With the Metro so nearby, and all the shops, it was like having our own pied a terre. From the Sunday Farmers' Market (best food of our whole vacation) to having a couple of sweet bakeries nearby, to the public transportation options, this was an excellent base camp. The little kitchen was all that we needed, and the washer made things very convenient. The photos tell you all you need to know. It's a street-level apartment, very quiet, with average beds. The price was right, and we'll probably stay here the next time we're in Paris, and that's the best compliment we can give.
Quiet location, good shopping, fine neighborhood, a quiet side street 10min from Denfert, 15min from Alesia, right next to a great bus to city centre (recommended!).The apartment is probably what you might expect for what we paid: adequate but not excellent. It is pretty dark, as others have posted: LR/kitchen windows are huge but drapes ("day curtains") must remain closed unless you don't mind having folks see directly inside from the street; also these windows can only be opened safely when you are in the front room so fresh air is limited (again, unless you don't mind being open to the street). At night you must close/lock these windows for security, as bedrooms are in back....and the bedrooms are dark. This apt has little direct sunlight. The kitchen was acceptable, but in our opinion, not as good as expected. The bathroom: shower was difficult to use without soaking the floor--4 adults each had the same problem and so the room never dried out completely for the entire week...and we kept the ventilator fan on as much as possible. Hopefully this has been addressed, but it was a nuisance. Other furnishing were adequate but unremarkable.
