This was our first experience of renting a property for a holiday and the house is exactly as shown in the pictures. We really enjoyed staying at the house and the rooms were very big and spacious. We enjoyed coming home in the evening to family meals and playing games that are provided at the house. My children are teenagers and never once complained of being bored and were either fighting over the spacious beautiful bath, were connected on the WiFi or just enjoyed having family time. The owner was very helpful and always on hand to answer any questions. It is about 40 mins walk to Lille centre or 10 mins in an Uber we done both, just be careful Uber have the correct road as there are two with the same name but once we added the code of the area we never had any problems again. The neighbours are also very friendly and there is a small shop on the street and a large supermarket about 15 mins walk from the property
The apartment us well situated in Vieux Lille. A number of bars and restaurants within 100m. The Grand Place and main rail station within a quarter mile.
Pretty good space, having living room, kitchen, toilet, shower room and bedroom as well as small balcony. Clean and in good condition. We found it to be well equipped as regards kitchen facilities. Bed was comfortable. Shower cubicle small, but adequate. No air-con which would have been useful as it was hot, but I don't get the impression it is usually required. Washing machine and dryer was very convenient. Large flat screen TV in living room and bedroom with range of French channels.
Apartment is on 2nd floor, Small lift available, although there are a couple of steps to access common hallway from the street. We were met there by Lucie as arranged who explained the apartment to us. She has an office on the opposite side of the corridor to the apartment. She was very helpful and her spoken English was better than my French!
We took advantage of the car parking space offered by Patrick and Lucie showed us the space. It was quite expensive (17€ per day, which was more costly than our hire car) but then parking in the area is generally expensive. 24h in the car park, which is directly in front of the apartment (Indigo Vieux Lille) costs 26€. Worth considering how long you will use that parking, but this was very convenient and for us was well worth it.
Overall, we found the apartment to be very nice and great value. Patrick responded promptly to all queries and everything was as expected. Can certainly recommend this apartment.
