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.
We loved staying at this property. It was very comfortable, clean, modern, nicely decorated and well-equipped. Cêcile is a fabulous host - very helpful and welcoming and speaks excellent English. It was lovely to escape to the tranquility of the countryside as well as having easy access to Paris. A hire car is very useful but not essential if you are a cyclist. We did not realise that in August many Parisians are on holiday and this is when maintenance is done on the train lines so there were closures to alot of the lines and stations.
I would thoroughly recommend staying at this property, great for kids, families, couples.
