About BESNIER

I spent most of my career abroad, living in furnished rentals; I have tried to make this apartment the perfect place to relax, discover and enjoy Parisian life.

BESNIER purchased this apartment in 2011

Why BESNIER chose Val-de-Grâce

I love corner apartments ( I am lucky enough to live in one), they are bright, typically with a running around balcony on 5th floor, and often outstanding views.I love the neighbourhood too ( I live close by), very lively, with lots of foodshops, bookshops, markets, cafés and restaurants, more authentic than touristy - and so close to Observatoire and Luxembourg Gardens, which are beautiful all year round...

What makes this apartment unique

At night, have a drink on the balcony and watch the illuminated Eiffel Tower which scintillates for 5mns every hour, at the hour..Or simply sit in the corner living-room and enjoy the view of streets lined with beautiful Haussmann buildings.

Couldn't be better.

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time using the apartment. We are a couple in our mid 70's and enjoy the space, comfort and convenience of the location. We were especially thankful for the elevator. Bath and kitchen are a bit small, but clean and functional. That's typical and to be expected. Anne Marie is very helpful and provides a good deal of useful information about local restaurants, markets, etc. Lots of light and views in all directions. The small corner grocery on the first floor is convenient and the owner also very helpful. Would stay there again.

Just great ...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Anne-Marie's apartment and it was as good as the first. A perfect location for anything you would like to do in Paris whether it involves museums, gardens, or just walking the neighborhoods. The apartment is spotless and well equipped for cooking in. With the markets on Mouffetard and Port Royal there is plenty of good produce, meat and cheese available. There is a bus stop right outside the building and the metro is very close so if you don't want to walk there are easy options. Anne-Marie is delightful and seeing her again felt like meeting a friend. A perfect apartment for us.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well located in that it is walking distance from the RER and metro station and has two bus line right at the street door. In addition there are markets, cafes, bakeries and eateries within easy walking distance. The apartment is equipped with a rolling grocery cart, umbrella, cookware, washer etc. The apartment is a perfect for a couple. You will find lots of information about Paris including maps, guides to local eateries, etc. in the apartment.

The only thing I did not care for is that the shower head is hand held only-there is no place in the shower to hang the shower head and no place for soap etc. Otherwise, this apartment is perfect for touring Paris.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough positive things about both the apartment and Anne-Marie! For starters, this was our first time renting an apartment in Paris and we were a little uncomfortable about the idea of renting from afar. Anne-Marie made all the difference - from the initial contact, she was professional, friendly, organized - she sent a contract and invoices for both the deposit and final payment, so there was no question that this was a legitimate transaction. She communicated with us prior to our arrival to be sure we had an agreed-upon time to meet, and provided clear information about getting to the apartment. When she met us at the apartment, she made sure we knew how to work everything and that our internet connection worked, and provided us with great suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the neighborhood.

The apartment was perfect - as others have said, the location is ideal, easily accessible by metro, RER and bus, and it's easy to walk to many places from there. It was bright and airy, had great views (including a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower - gorgeous at night!) and had everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay, including a dressing area with drawers and hanging space (very nice to not have to live out of a suitcase!), a fully-supplied kitchen, and beautifully-tiled bathroom. It was a real luxury to have lift as well.

We would definitely stay here again, and would rent any apartment from Anne-Marie without hesitation!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally situated for sight seeing. The bus and the metro are close to the apartment as are boulangeries, shops and restaurants also the Luxembourg gardens are a short distance away. The apartment is bright and airy easily accessed via the lift. The lack of air conditioning is not a problem in the day time as the many large windows can be opened. The surround terrace is narrow but you can sit out in the evening and watch the world go by as well as catching a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. The Sorbonne, the Pantheon, the Jardin des Plants and the Mouffetard are within walking distance of the apartment. Would definitely return to this apartment.

A lovely little corner of Paris

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. The location is great, very close to the Luxembourg Gardens (and RER), the Sorbonne and Pantheon etc and surrounded by lovely cafes and restaurants. Anne-Marie is a very welcoming host and went out of her way to make sure our stay was a good one. I agree with previous comments that the sitting arrangements in the living area could be better, but we spent very little time watching television so it didn't affect us in the slightest. I would certainly stay there again.
