Charming apartment close to everything.

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed my stay in this apartment with a friend of mine. It was very clean,small,but efficient. David and his wife were very caring and she met us when we arrived and showed us around to make sure we knew where everything was located. I don't know that four adults could stay here comfortably as there is one small bathroom and separate toilet. Also the ceiling in the living/2nd sleeping room is low so anyone that is tall might not fit. The couch in the living room opens to a bed and is not that easy to unmake and put back into place each day, so we just left it as is and sat on it. If there were two couples staying in the apt. it would be quite awkward in the evening as there is no other place to sit. But for two people it is fine. The best part about this apt. is the location and the charming courtyard located right down stairs.

It was parfait! The Perfect location - enchanting courtyard - absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

I wish that everyone could have the opportunity to stay in such a wonderful place in Paris at least once in their lifetime. It was magical; the quiet and beautiful Parisian courtyard inside the door; a magnificent view of the Louvre and the sounds of a busy Paris street awaited- just outside. My husband and I were truly charmed beyond words and the owner was fantastic!

My only regret- I left my heart in Paris and I would like to have it back❤️😩򚝤️

Fabulous apartment - cannot wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our 30 year old daughter, were delighted with our 10- day stay in David's apartment in early May, 2016! We really cannot say enough good things about our experience. It began with David, and his sweet 6-year-old son greeting us at the apartment and explaining the few items that were not self-evident. (The combination washer-dryer was new to us and we appreciated David's clear instructions.)

We cannot say enough good things about the apartment! First, it is just as nice as the photos indicate. No photo-shopping here - the apartment is exactly as advertised. The bedroom is large with a very spacious closet, the bathroom is modern and the living room and dining table were very comfortable. Our daughter slept on the couch in the living room and remarked about how comfortable it was. The kitchen is tiny by American standards but is a wonderful study in efficiency. We enjoyed breakfasts and occasional lunches at the apartment but took advantage of the fabulous dinner options Paris has to offer.

The location of the apartment is PERFECT- half way between the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame right on the Seine - it seriously does not get any better than this. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. On a previous trip we stayed in the 8th arrondiissement and now realize how important location is to enjoying this wonderful city. Also, the apartment overlooks the interior courtyard and was very quiet. (An artist was selling a painting of the entry into the courtyard which we bought and are now enjoying. It is a wonderful reminder of our fabulous vacation.!)

David was a very gracious and thoughtful host. He gave us his contact information and encouraged us to contact him if we had any questions during our stay. He provided helpful recommendations about local restaurants, supermarkets, etc. We decided to extend our stay and he was very accommodating of our request. Finally, he arranged for a driver to take us to the airport on the morning of our departure which was greatly appreciated.

We were sad to leave, but are looking forward to staying in this delightful apartment during our next visit!

The Best of Paris: Excellent location, beautiful apartment, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I found the perfect place to stay in Paris with this very quiet, clean, well-appointed, and centrally located apartment. Our hosts, David and Sandrine, provided a nice, cozy, and restful retreat, a perfect place to explore all that Paris has to offer. Just across the street from the Louvre, and within easy walking distance to some of the best sites that Paris has to offer, this apartment was all that was described and more. The Musee d'Orsay is a few blocks down the street one way, while the great restaurants and cafes of St. Germain are just a few blocks in either direction. We could have stayed there forever if I didn't have to go back to work! We highly recommend this place for a single or couple, though the couch can be pulled out to accommodate another individual.

One of the best things about the place is that the owners made us feel welcome every step of the way. David was great about putting together a compendium of information on how to access their wifi, use the various appliances, and identify some of the best cafes in the area to eat. His wife Sandrine ensured that we knew where everything was and made some great recommendations of places to visit and eat. She even met us near the Louvre when we weren't sure where to go when we got out of the Metro. David was always available by email if I needed anything (since my phone was out, I couldn't call him).

The place was very clean. They have a nice little refrigerator for keeping some things cold like wine and cheese, but most of the time, we were out and about, eating at cafes both near and far. They have all the modern conveniences, including a microwave, dishwasher, and TV (the last two we never used).

Some of the nearby restaurants that we enjoyed include the oldest known cafe in Paris, Le Procope, an interesting and well-known place for steak and frites, Relais de l'Entrecôte Saint-Germain, and a good place to have a nice dinner that is right across the street from Relais, Le Petite Zinc. We were able to walk to places like Le Jardin du Luxembourg and Rue Cler.

We recommend getting an all-inclusive Paris Pass, Museum Pass, and Transportation Pass. Get aboard The Big Bus and tour the city on the first day, then walk around and take the metro, train, or bus to see and do as much as possible. You won't be disappointed. And this place is the perfect launching pad for doing it all.

Merci David and Sandrine for providing us with a wonderful place in Paris!

Lovely Apt, great location, beautiful gated interior courtyard

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks there and enjoyed all of it. Decor is very tasteful; it is equipped with every essential convenience. The small kitchen is appropriate for light meal preparation, and the Fregate and Empire Resaurants nearby are good dinner spots. There is bus service to everywhere in Paris across the street, and the Tuileries and Lourve are very convenient. Strolling along the Seine is one of the delights.The beautiful large interior courtyard provides quiet and a feeling of security.

If and when we return to Paris, this would be our top choice.

Quiet apartment with great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for my daughter and myself for 5 days in Paris. Centrally located on the left bank just across from the Louvre and down the street from the Musee d'Orsay, we could easily be first in line at many of the popular attractions. The apartment is clean, efficient, and stocked with enough kitchen and bath supplies to make you feel at home and not in a hotel. David's directions and communication with us prior to our arrival was prompt and clear and he met us at the apartment at the agreed time. His tour of the apartment and advice on local shops was very helpful. The internet worked perfectly. We especially enjoyed looking out of the windows at the pleasant, quiet, courtyard. At night with the windows open it was quiet and the fans kept us cool. David has done a great job making his guests comfortable and equipped with all they need including electrical adapters and a printer. Given the location this apartment is a terrific value!!
