Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Emmanuelle has done a marvelous job rehabing this property! It is the perfect apartment for the US traveler to Paris. It is walking distance to the Metro, the Cluny, Notre Dame and many many restaurants. The apartment has many electric outlets (don't forget your converters)! The kitchen is completely set up (Long live Ikea!) The bathroom is exactly what you need! There is very little noise. We loved staying here! Thank you for Emmanuelle!

Charming, clean and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, clean and conveniently located apartment. We enjoyed staying there. Emmanuelle was very informative and responsive to my questions before our arrival and was there waiting in the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was sufficiently large enough for our needs (just two of us). The bathroom was spacious and clean, there is a clothes washer in the kitchen.

It is on the 4th floor so be prepared to walk up and down every time you come and go from the building. Some of the stairs (as you can see in the picture) are worn from age and should cause you to take care. Other than that, enjoy!

My wife, 9-yr old daughter, and I stayed at “The Walls…” for three nights in February and it was fabulous! The apartment was very charming and comfortable. The location was unbeatable. Our host, Emmanuelle was communicative, helpful, and also charming. Thank you for the champagne!

Entering the courtyard, it’s easy to imagine yourself a Parisian, returning home. The hustle of the Latin Quarter is left outside the door and it is strangely quiet. You walk up the stone steps which while many, are a gradual, not steep climb up to the apartment. You unlock your door and the apartment is welcoming and cozy. The kitchen has everything you need for a meal there (which we took advantage of one evening), or at least for fresh brewed coffee in the morning as you contemplate your day. The sitting area was cozy so that we could discuss our day about Paris and then it became our daughter’s comfortable sleeping area at bedtime. The bedroom had a King bed which was very comfortable and with plenty of storage space for clothing. WiFi was a welcome addition, especially with so many hotels charging for it these days. It was a relaxing space! “The Walls…” is a great apartment for a couple or a family with up to 2 young children.

And location, location, location! “The Walls…” is near the Cluny, Sorbonne, Pantheon, and Notre Dame. We walked a lot (and saw a lot) but there is a Metro nearby, as well as the Batobus, a boat that cruises the Seine and stops at major tourist destinations. A market is around the corner for meats and cheeses. There are a lot of places to eat in the area so it’s a matter of taste and preference but something for everyone. We enjoyed a recommendation from Emmanuelle for lunch as well as finding our own hidden gems for dinner. If you’ve always wanted to experience the Left Bank and still have access to all that Paris has to offer, I couldn’t think of a better place to base oneself than “The Walls…”

Wonderful place for a stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Emmanuelle's apartment for a 5 night stay in Paris, and it was absolutely perfect. The apartment is a great size for two people with a separate bedroom from the kitchen/living area. The bathroom is a very good size with a very nice shower. It has great WiFi access, and it has all of the things we needed to make the stay a great one (hairdryer, kitchen supplies, etc). It was clean, well-furnished, and had plenty of everything we needed (towels, toilet paper, etc).

The location cannot be beat--it's literally a five to seven minute walk to St. Michel - Notre Dome Metro/train stop which means a direct route to CDG airport as well as multiple metro lines. There are lots of great restaurants right around the block - I highly recommend the bistro right next door. Great food, great atmosphere, great people.

Many thanks to Emmanuelle for accommodating us for the stay. She was very responsive to our emails leading up to the visit, and she was very flexible when we missed our flight connection and arrived later than planned.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Paris.
