About Julia Yaziji

We are Americans from California who currently live in Switzerland.

Julia Yaziji purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Julia Yaziji chose Seine-et-Marne

This was not originally intended as a vacation rental. It was bought it for our own use.

What makes this apartment unique

Fontainebleau is an absolutely charming town, with culture and energy, and lots of great cafes, and very walkable and livable. It is surrounded by a wonderful forest and is a short hop to Paris by car/train.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a great location.. easy to find and walking distance to the Chateau and downtown. Beds were comfortable but the living room furniture was a bit tired when we went in June 2016. Hopefully that will be updated soon. Could of been a bit cleaner but I, admittedly, am picky. The owner was very responsive to helping me with the washer/dryer witch was way different from US washer and dryer systems. I would recommend this property to friends b/c of the proximity to the Fontainbleau forest for hiking, biking and great bouldering and the Chateau with it's beautiful grounds. The train station (Gare) was in Avon about 10-15 minutes from the property to quickly get in to Paris ( and the man at the station was very nice and helpful). We rented a car and it was wonderful to travel around the area but the parking garage spot was much more suited, size wise, to bikes.

Spacious apt, plenty of natural light, good size kitchen with table and stools looking out onto lovely courtyard. Great location. Within walking distance to forest, grocery stores, town, bus stop.

We are returning for third visit this fall.

We had an extraordinary stay in Julia's flat. We stayed for a month over Christmas and the New Year to climb in the forest. This was the perfect rental for us, because it allowed easy access to Paris for days when we decided to rest and great options for dining. The accommodations were great and the location was nearby to the bus, a quick walk to the chateau and/or boulangerie. It was certainly spacious enough for four people (even having four in the kitchen was fine). The walls are kind of thin, so be considerate of the neighbors- not a problem if you're not loudly stomping late at night. Julia was super helpful whenever we had questions, and very sweet to help us out with a couple of issues specific to our needs. The dedicated parking spot was a bit small for the SUV we'd rented, but there was never an issue with parking on the street. I couldn't have asked for a better host. We will most certainly be back and definitely make Julia our first call. If you like comfort, Do yourself a favor -> book this place.

So good plan to return

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, walking distance to forests, town, local food markets and franprix (all purpose grocery and drug store).

Spacious apt, plenty of storage, roomy kitchen with full size refrigerator and 4 burner stove. Windows surround the entire apt, bed is a dream. Firm but comfortable.

Julia is quick to respond to all inquiries and follows through with all your needs. We are so happy with experience, we are returning. Sylvie, who manages apt.is friendly and takes care of any problems quickly.:

Very good vacation

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our one month vacation at this apartment, Plenty of things to do. Had rented a car and roamed around the area, and a three day trip to Burgundy was great. Would surely return. Were a little disapointed wiht the size of the parking space in the basement garage. Whenever we could find a space in the street we prefered to park there. We suggest a little more amenities: upon our arrival we had to rush to town to purchase a few things like toilet paper and other basic necessities. Otherwise, all went very well. Whenever we needed something, Julia was always ready to help us. Thanks Julia

Enjoyed our stay in this apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment in Fontainebleau. It was as excellent choice for us as my husband had business at INSEAD, which was a short walk away. We stayed for two weeks. On previous visits to Fontainebleau we had stayed in Hotel accommodation for only the time we needed to be there. However this time we turned our visit into a holiday.

I have to say that renting this apartment from Julia and Michael was a joy. Julia (with whom we corresponded via email only) was excellent to deal with. The arrangements went very smoothly from beginning to end.

The apartment itself was in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, with what appeared to be fulltime residents living in the complex (post-war building). The balcony overlooked a one-way street. Across the street in a neighbouring garden (on the fence line) were some lovely mature fur trees that gave one a sense of openness and privacy.

For European proportions, the rooms were quite large. Clean linen was provided. Furnishings are modest with the sofa a little old (and possibly damaged) and only comfortable for two to sit despite the size. Importantly though the beds were comfortable. We hired a car for two days and parked in the underneath garage. The access to the parking space between two pylons is a little narrow, so a small-medium car is recommended if parking in the garage. Street parking was available and easy.

We were soon to make ourselves very at home, by putting our own little touches like, flowers and our own new tablecloth from the market. The market is held in Fontainebleau three times per week.

Having the apartment meant that we could try all the delicacies from the region by preparing some meals at home. In the past we have only been able to look at the market fair and wonder….

In the vicinity (five minute walk in opposite direction to INSEAD) was the Chateaux Fontainebleau, which history dates back to the thirteenth century hunting lodge of the Royals. Over generations of Royals it was developed into a huge and impressive Chateaux. Napoleon III was the last to use the residence.

For those wanting some time in Paris, Fontainebleau is only 55km to the south-west and a train trip away. The number 1 bus from the neighbouring street goes through the centre of the village and takes you directly to the Fontainebleau station. The train to Paris finishes at the Gare du Nord.

We had a lovely stay in this apartment and would do it all again.
