This best thing about this home away from home in the amazing world city of Paris is it is smack on the hippest street in the city. Restaurants, cafes, shops - vibrant "real" Paris right outside your door. OK, bit of a climb up to drop your bags but once settled you can walk to Marais, Notre Dame, the Champs Elysees, the Louvre. Metro station around the corner. It is the Location Location Location pad. Quiet at night because the bedroom not on the street. And that street is French and you don't feel like a tourist. You can go local and you will find the French people are not rude but most often helpful - even in English! The famous Kayser bakery across the street for the morning fuel up. And those with the addiction can have their Starbucks Chai Latte, no foam, no water, extra hot, just a few feet away from the entry door. Jean-Francois is a highly professional host who is flexible, communicates in excellent English and very responsive. Not cheap but think of the saving compared to staying in an out of the way hotel with tiny room at the same price. After all that walking to historic sights, lunching and wine drinking you need a roomy place to crash and reboot and wash your skinny jeans for those who like to travel light. Stayed for only two nights but helped us "get" the Paris vibe from start to finish. Easy to access from Gare du Nord - short metro ride or reasonable cab journey.
The flat is located in a very convenient position, very close to shops and to the Montsouris park. Twice a week there is a market just across the road, where any kind of fresh food can be found. The place is well served by public transportation, with two bus stops (lines 62 and 21) within 20 meters from the door. With five minute walk one can easily get to metro 6, rer b and tram 3. The kitchen is fully equipped. The flat itself is bright and cosy. The owner is welcoming and helpful in case of necessity. In 2010 I spent about three months in this flat and I had a very enjoyable time.
