Why The Owner chose Invalides

Perfect Parisian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was the perfect backdrop for introducing our sixteen year old grandchildren to Paris. We were graciously welcomed and very comfortably accommodated in this exquisitely furnished French apartment. The arrondissement was perfect for visiting all of the high points that one must see and convenient to metro and bus stations. We all felt so "at home" and thank Dr. Zara de Saint Hilaire for sharing her beautiful home with all of us.

This place is great and I would recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and perfect for our family of four. It was our first time in Paris as a family and the place was so chic and quaint! The home had two bathrooms which is great to have especially with two daughters! The neighborhood is very safe and within walking distance to Musee D’Orsay and Rodin which weee one of our favorite places to visit.

Classic French apartment furnished with antiques but with modern updated bathrooms and kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

Replete with books, family photos, and framed art work the apartment is charming and clearly owned by someone who has seen the world and led a sophisticated life. Everything clean and orderly and the owner’s assistant was always helpful should questions arise. There were no surprises. The location was close to everything in the 7th.

A dream come true

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed apartment is our idea of Parisian elegance. We could not have been happier with our stay. The only drawback is you are reluctant to leave this welcoming environment. The kitchen works well and we often opted to eat lunch out and enjoy simple dinners at home. It is an elegant quiet neighborhood.

Good location, clean and roomy

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Everything supplied, lots of extras. Only thing we would recommend is a new couch. We are older and couldn't relax in any chairs or the couch. The couch is very old and soiled. After a long day of sightseeing we would have loved a comfortable couch to relax on. We would recommend enlarging the shower and taking out the sink beside it as it isn't needed considering the other 3 sinks. Otherwise, wonderful place and Fernando was friendly and helpful. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs Louann, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you felt the couch was soiled. I take pride in maintening this apartment in mint conditions. What you sougth was soiled spots on the fabric is in fact the reflection of the velvet cover, depending from the different angle you look at it. As you can see I have had numerous reviews stressing the cleanless and the beautiful condition of this place. Sincerely The owner
