This was a lovely quiet quaint apartment close to everything. Virginie was a very good host.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely quaint apartment within a 10 minute walk of the train station and shops, restaurants and the not to be missed Victor Hugo market. It's about a 15 minute walk into downtown Toulouse with sites to see along the way.

The apartment is pleasant with a modern kitchen and bath, king bed and is sooo quiet. You can buy food at the Victor Hugo market or at the street market along Blvd de Strasbourg.

We had excellent communications with Virginie and found her to be helpful and accomodating.

Deceptive photo, nice apartment but at the back of another apartment.

  • 2 of 5

The apartment itself is well laid out and very clean with comfortable seating and plenty of wardrobe space in the bedroom area. The bathroom is small but functional but could do with a shelf as there is nowhere to put anything. Obviously furnished by IKEA I felt the minimum has been provided. The terrace photo is deceiving as it is more like an enclosed courtyard overlooked by other apartments and unattractive buildings and is pretty scruffy. Placement is fine as it is only about a 10 minute walk to the main boulevard where there are many restaurants. There is no parking outside and it is quite hard to find a place over the other side of the canal although it is free. The owner of the property was very helpful when we had questions or needed things.

Owner's Response: Dear Helen, Thanks for your comment. I am really sorry if you have been deceived that the apartment is neighbors surrounded, indeed it is in the city center, quite hard to be completely alone... The terrace and its surroundings is usually really appreciate by our guests for its charm and quietness (refer the other comments). Whatever, I will take your advice into account and try to bring some more decorations and plants to make it more charming... For the parking, indeed, the places in the free zone are more or less easy to find according to the hour in the day but we always find one in a short walk. Regarding the equipments, I don't know what to say because I really always make a point of being sure that my guests are comfortable and lacking in anything. Anyway, I will be pleased to welcome you back in Toulouse.

Convenient, compact, charming host

  • 5 of 5

Our long weekend in March was blessed with spring sunshine for the most part, which encouraged us to explore the compact city on foot. Top tips, ignore the expensive bus shuttle from the airport and buy a cheap travel pass for metro, tram and bus - just over 10 euros for three full days - then take tram to Arenes and red metro to Marengo, just a short walk from apartment. Also look out for free electric minibus which covers much of city centre, hop on and hop off as you please (not Sundays). Smooth arrival and departure at apartment, which is well-equipped but a kettle would be a bonus, excellent wifi but code is veeeeeery long, great shower, thin sliding screen between bedroom and sofa bed in lounge area might be awkward for two couples but fine for families. Marvellous markets, cafes and bars, loads to see and do and helpfulness of citizens remarkable - you only had to pull out a map to check bearings and people of all ages would e quickly offering to help. We've previously visited Montpellier and Bordeaux,Toulouse has lots of the former's bohemian charm while having bags of big city buzz, too.

Comfortable apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for two people. Very comfortable bed, and a decent sized living room. We didn't cook, but if you wished to, all the facilities were there. There is also a nice outdoor area. The surrounding district has bars, restaurants and supermarkets. There is an excellent bakery close by, and within 5 minutes walk is the Cafe Concorde which has the best coffee I've tasted in years. The apartment is close to the Victor Hugo Market, the old historic centre, and the main train station. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment and would have no hesitation in returning the next time we go to Toulouse.

A very pleasent stay in Toulouse

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my wife and daughter at Virginie's place during two weeks when we visited Toulouse. The location is very good - 5-10 min walk from Jeanne d'Arc Place and 5-10 min walk from the train and bus station (Gare Matabiau, Gare Routière). You also have a bakery about 50 m outside your apartment and 2-3 grocery stores within 5 min. The apartment is renovated with style and works well for up to 4 people (one double bed and a sofa that works as a double bed). In addition to the living room and the bedroom, which are separated by a wall and a curtain, you have a well equipped kitchen, with a dishwasher, stove and hybrid microwave oven as well as a bathroom. You also get a washing machine, which has a built-in dryer - very convenient in case you stay longer. In addition to all this you have a terrace with a big table outside your kitchen and living room. You also get a well-working Wifi. Since the apartment is in the backyard it doesn't get too hot in the summer and it's quiet, that is you don't get the street noise. You get blankets and towels, dishes and utensils (a few tablets for the dishwasher and for the laundry to get started was provided). At the Gare Matabiau there is a car rental and close by you can find free parking. It's popular to go jogging alongside the canal, that is about a 5-min walk from the apartment. Virginie has also put together a binder with some practical information including some restaurant recommendations as well things to see and do in Toulouse.

Virginie is fluent in English and is very helpful. A clean apartment and a nice bottle of red wine welcomed us. All in all it was a very pleasant experience and we hope to have a chance to visit Toulouse soon again and that Virginie's apartment will be available also during our next visit.

We really felt relaxed here

  • 5 of 5

This is a light, airy and relaxing apartment, set conveniently near both to the railway station (just ten minutes' walk), and the city centre and shops (a similar distance). Virginie is an absolutely charming owner, who speaks good English and who would always be on hand to help should the occasion arise. During our own two-week stay, there was no need to call on her services; however, Virginie did ensure there was both an iron and ironing board in answer to a request we made before arriving (you can't beat doing the ironing when you're on holiday!)

In essence, the apartment comprises one room (not including the shower room and loo), with different sections - the sleeping area, sitting room, kitchen - separated by walls or curtains. This arrangement adds to its spacious feel. There are lots of chairs to choose from, should you be avid wet-weather readers like us, and a long, comfortable sofa. The wifi is fast (well compared to my own in rural Derbyshire), and BBC World, Skynews & CNN are all available on the TV.

For coffee fans, there's a Nespresso machine and a kettle for those who prefer tea (but bring your own T-bags). The outside courtyard is shared with the upstairs apartment, but a separation screen is available if required. Unusually during our stay, we were deluged with thunderous rain; suffice to say, the typically French, galvanised downspouts coped admirably.

Our €300 deposit was returned without a quibble and we were given the option of carrying out our own final clean rather than paying the janitor (who we had met mopping the intermediate entrance lobby).

So all in all, a delightful place from which to explore the wonderfully-friendly, welcoming city of Toulouse.
