I am the owner I rent my apartment a few months a year.
Why Renaud chose École Militaire
I have lived in this apartment since 2000. I spent 3 years to renovate it completely by myself, and I rent this wonderful place few months a year.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is peaceful with a cool terrace of 10 sq. m in summer opening onto the bedroom. In the other bedroom, you will feel like in the Breteuil Avenue: the sound of the birds singing will wake you up.

Great host , great location, great apartment
Myself, my wife and two children (six and nine) stayed for four nights at the apartment.
Firstly Renaud is excellent. He is attentive, punctual, happily talked about local services and shops and made recommendations. He wants you to enjoy your stay. We had no problems at all with the apartment but I sense he would have responded immediately. Additionally he kindly offered that we could leave our bags at the apartment after check-out whilst we waited for our train home.
Secondly the apartment is charming. Typically Parisian, in a super apartment block. Everything works, the beds are comfortable, the décor good and it is pleasingly quiet.
Thirdly the location is splendid. On the doorstep of the Invalides, a metro station round the corner. There are a multitude of local bakers, grocers, supermarkets, restaurants and bistros catering for all tastes. You are in the heart of Paris and it also pleasingly feels like a place people live day to day rather than just being tourists or transitory. The area around Rue Cler is particularly lovely.
Thanks Renaud, we'll be back.
Thoroughly enjoyable family visit
Renault was an excellent and attentive host, very easy going, and made us feel welcome in his home. The apartment was spacious, comfortable for our family of four and had lots of charm. We spent a week over the Christmas holiday in the apartment and cooked nice meals for 6, which were very enjoyable. The kitchen is equipped with basic pots and pans, an espresso maker (no coffee pot) and all the appliances worked well.
The location is superb and wonderful shops, transit, bistros, patisseries, pharmacy, historical monuments within close walking distance. The farmers market on Thursday and Saturday is fantastic and should not be missed!
Lovely apartment in a fantastic Paris location
Our family recently stayed in this gorgeous apartment for 5 days while in Paris. We were so pleased with the size of the apartment (large and comfortable), and the convenient location ... we walked virtually everywhere (Eiffel Tower, Musee d'Orsay, Louvre, Notre Dame)! The owner was so friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome.
We used the little patio to enjoy our coffee in the morning and our glass of wine in the evening, and our two boys (13 and 10) spent some time across the street in the park playing soccer. We only cooked dinner one night but found the kitchen to be well-appointed.
If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Paris I would definitely stay here again!
A Gem of An Apartment
My husband and I and our teenage daughter enjoyed this apartment tremendously.
The apartment feels like the inside of a jewelry box with its high ceilings and beautiful touches.
The location is ideal, in a stunning, non-touristy, genuine Parisian neighborhood very close to landmarks, excellent restaurants and shopping. It is also across the street from a highly used park. The people-watching scenes of all the park users was mostly just lovely (families picnicking, all ages playing games or just relaxing) - although we did have two nights of very loud partiers at the park - it was amazing to me that police were not called due to the noise -- but with the windows closed and our use of "white noise" apps on our phones, we were able to sleep just fine both of those nights.
The owner is gracious, professional, courteous, and an excellent and diligent communicator.
Every morning we also ate at Le Boulanger des Invalides Jocteur 14 Avenue de Villars 75007.
We were grateful for this find.
My mother had always wanted to visit Paris and we did so last April. We booked this lovely apartment and we were completely satisfied with our choice. The owner was very personable and was a most excellent host. I look forward to hopefully staying in the location again someday. We felt very safe in this neighborhood and many things were within walking distance.
Nice apartment for family vacation
This was an excellent rental selection for our family vacation in Paris. I was travelling with my wife and two children, 11 and 14. The apartment was more than large enough for the four of us with two separate bedrooms. The shower and toilet are separate rooms but both are within the apartment. The kitchen seemed to have everything anyone can need though we ate out almost every meal because we were constantly on the move. Our host was Renaud who was very polite and helpful with advice and suggestions. He was very trustworthy and spoke very good English. I was a little nervous paying in cash but there were no issues with that approach as I was able to have my bank increase my ATM withdrawal limit and I used the LCL ATM right around the corner to get the cash at a good exchange rate. On the last day, he returned the cash deposit I gave him at the start of the visit and met us and called a cab for pickup. Per Google maps, the apartment is a 3 minute walk from the Saint-François-Xavier Metro stop, a 9 minute walk to the École Militaire Metro stop and a 20 minute walk to the base of the Eiffel Tower. Each morning we ate at the Le Boulanger des Invalides at 14 Avenue de Villars. This is right across the street from the Saint-François-Xavier Metro stop and was recommended by Renaud. The staff there was very polite and patient and started our day off right. I highly recommend this apartment.
