                                                                                                      We stayed in the house for a month, in June 2017. The house is very nice, not extremely spacey but functionally arranged, with a shaded terrace and a garden separated from the neighbors by a well maintained hedge. Vine and flowers grow around the terrace. The neighborhood is very quiet, mainly small streets and detached houses, with a lake 50 m away and a walking path along the Seine after further 100 m. People smile to each other on the street. In a word, a nice place to live. The center of Paris is 40 min away by RER (Gare de Lyon, Chatelet Les Halles, Gare du Nord), which is not bad at all, and definitely manageable with a good book to read. :-) The owners are considerate, and we had no problems with the contact. Whenever we needed something it was always possible to arrange. Overall, a very nice stay. If we do another trip to Paris, we will definitely like to stay there again.

The apartment is very clean and has a fully stocked kitchen. There are gardens you can sit in outside too, and parking both on the street and the driveway. Within walking distance of the G20 supermarket (10 mins I'd say). Also Patrick (the owner) is very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!
