Excellent apartment in an ideal location for a Paris vacation

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed and well-maintained one bedroom apartment on the left bank of the Seine is an excellent value. It is clean, comfortable and quiet (on the inside courtyard of a Quai Voltaire building), conveniently located directly across from the Louvre and two blocks from the Musee D'Orsay. Although small, the kitchen area has everything you'd need to eat in, there is a comfortable couch, table and TV in the sitting room, and the bedroom is large with a very comfortable large bed that has a firm mattress. The bathroom is clean and well-appointed, though the ceilings are low so if you're tall you'll have to duck to get into the separate toilet area. The apartment has baseboard heating that kept us toasty as the November days got cooler. The apartment has several windows but no cross ventilation, so it might get very warm in the summer as it doesn't appear to be air conditioned. There is a Metro stop across the bridge at the Louvre, and the shops, restaurants and bakeries of St Germain are only a few blocks away within easy walking distance.

David our host was very accommodating and answered all of our questions with many helpful suggestions. My wife and I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Paris.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your message. For information, The apartment is naturally fresh during summer (not warm) because it's a very old building from 17th century with large wall and 2 fan (dyson) are available but not useful. It will be a pleasure to welcome you again during summer. Best regards, David

Charming cozy retreat in the best location

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived here we had heard from David and had received great information on the arrondissement as well as tips for touring, shopping and eating out. We felt so welcome from the start. We had 3 amazing weeks here. This apartment is in a wonderful central location. Walking distance to many attractions and close to bus and subway although we didn't use them as we walked everywhere. David's wife met us and explained how all the appliances worked. There is also a detailed written package provided. Everything is here, you just need to walk in, unpack in the lovely walk in closet and enjoy Paris. If you wish to eat in, there is a well thought out tiny kitchen. If you want to eat out, there are all kinds of restaurants in the area at every price point. The apartment is spotlessly clean and a service comes in each week to change the bed and towels and clean, which I thought was a nice touch. We two were quite comfortable. Sadly we must leave here today, but hope to be back to Paris and this apartment again in the near future.

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!
