Why Gregory & Pauline de Simencourt chose 7th Arrondissement
Probably the best location in Paris..! It is unique to be in the center of Paris, with à view on the nicest monuments, iuit quiet, chic and secuplacera and at the same Time very close from all the touristic places, shops, restaurants and bars...!!!!! The 7 th district is the chicest area of Paris, quiet and Green as it is on the champ de Mars ( one of the biggest parc in Paris) , walking distance from the most touristic places (musée d Orsay, Eiffel tower, la concorde, Trocadéro, champs Elysees...) , walking distance from the nicest shopping experience ( av montaigne, champ Elysées, boulevard saint germain...) and in the middle of a very tipical parisien area with pietonary streets Like rue cler, rue du commerce and rue saint dominique were you CAN find food marketing and famous food stores (Cantin, Seco, Davoli ....A unique location for a unique Stay in Paris!

Perfect Paris Apartment
We loved the property. A great location with fantastic light and french balconies. It was perfect for our family and exactly as advertised. The hosts were very generous. We had everything we needed! Highly recommended!
Wonderful family apartment in the 7th.
We enjoy staying in the 7th - close enough to major attractions but feels like a real neighborhood not a tourist spot.
The three bedrooms, living room and kitchen gave our family of five plenty of room to spread out. Our hosts made nice suggestions on local dining and transport and were very responsive. And yes, it really does look like the photos and yes, you really can see The Eiffel Tower.
Great choice for a family who wants a neighborhood feel in Paris.
Bliss in Paris
Gregory & Pauline’s apartment was our home in Paris for 7 fantastic days.
Views of the Eiffel Tower and Champs de Mars are brilliant.
The Rodin and Military museums, among many other attractions, are within walking distance and there is a Metro station close by as well.
The apartment is huge and light and a very beautiful and comfortable space to be in.
Greg is a warm and gracious host was was very generous with great recommendations for restaurants, bars and markets.
This is the place to stay if you want to feel like a real Parisienne
Location, location, location!
Without a doubt the location of this unit was AMAZING! It was close to a very convenient metro stop on a quiet street with very quiet neighbors. It had a secure entry and felt very safe.
The living room and dining room were very lovely with large windows that opened to the street. The furniture was lovely and comfortable. There was a lack of lighting in the main area of the house. There were a few lamps around, but half of them did not work. The kitchen was adequate and well supplied with everything you would need for cooking.
The bedrooms were as presented. They were on the large size for European standards. The beds were comfortable. The master bath was very spacious. The guest bath was typical and smaller in size (once again adequate for European standards).
The owners were extremely nice, easy to work with and worked with our needs, but I didn't have the typical information from the owners that I usually expect from VRBO. If I hadn't rented in Paris before, I might have felt a bit lost.
I take my reviews seriously. I have stayed in some amazing five star rentals. This was not quite that. It is a home, not just a rental unit (at least that is what appears to be the case). The kitchen is well loved. The dishes, the dishwasher and the refrigerator are all well-used. The air conditioning is typical for Paris (it is a unit that needs to be hooked up and placed outside with a hose), though it worked well for the two main bedrooms. The third bedroom has a normal air conditioning unit, though I do not believe it was really working.
All in all, I would stay at this unit again because of the location and the flexibility of the owners, but I want to represent it well. It is loved and lived in, but I do believe it is priced adequately. If you want a five star rental with a location like this, you will probably have to pay double.
Not the apartment we were promised
My information from VRBO shows we were supposed to be given property 470913. We were not. The apartment we had was entirely different. For example, the apartment we were given had a kitchen with a green backsplash that opened onto the living area, which is completely different than the kitchen pictured. None of the photographed furniture was present. The kitchen was poorly equipped and not particularly clean, and the refrigerator stunk of old fish. Four of the six of us have dust mite allergies. Of the five places we stayed on our trip to Europe, this was the only one where we had allergy trouble. I will be complaining to VRBO.
We are very surprised that you were not happy with our apartment.
As the husband of your friend was snoring too loud, you requested an extra bed and some curtains in the living room. So that he could sleep separately. I have contacted you and this seemed a priority.
The first one booked by yourself has no curtains in the living room, as you can see on the pictures, and the beds are very difficult to move. And the windows are not equipped with double glasses in the living room, which doesn't have a sofa bed.
We have two apartments same building same floor same size. Our other apartment reference 1477249 has a sofa bed. Moreover the beds can be moved easily.
This is the reason why we have proposed to the guests in the apartment 1477249 to get the 470913. So you could get the other apartment for your three nights stay. And your friend could sleep peacefully as her husband could snore alone in the living room.
We see that you were not satisfied with our solution despite our efforts to organize a nice stay.
Our other apartment 1477249 is really a higher standard. It has been freshly renovated by a famous architect - decorator last year. The former guests decided to stay 6 months and were satisfied with it. Indeed the apartment 1477249 has 3 magnificent and luxurious bathrooms, a kitchen with precious marble set up by the decorator of Chanel shops, the equipment is high level and includes the best machines Miele and a big new TV with great sound , internet and netflix, integrated air con reversible, heating with a remote control, new luxury beds and furniture,....It is much more comfortable than the other one renovated 6 years ago with more simple materials.
And it is more sunny/full of light, which is important in December.
So when we see the review that you have posted, with no thanks, only criticizing , starting with the (magnificent) kitchen and its "smell of fish", and your -collective?- allergies, we see that you didn’t like your trip to Paris.
For your information the newly renovated apartment has new carpets. And it has mechanical ventilation and a new automatic reversible air con. The old one has nothing like this. So you may have had much more allergies in the older one. Hopefully you have stayed in the identical but new one.
We definitely regret to see that you were not satisfied with our apartment. We are on VRBO since a decade and our guests have always been satisfied with our apartments.
You need to stay here!!
Wonderful location, beautiful place to come back to at the end of the day and Pauline/Gregory are fabulous. Our family of 6 could not have asked for a better place to begin to see all the sites of Paris and talking the 5 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower around 9pm for dinner was the highlight of the trip.
The apartment is located on a parc (Champ de Mars) which allow you and your kids to do basket ball, football, Ping Pong, pétanque, jogging, cycling, there are play grounds for kids, picnic areas, horseriding and muppet shows..... This Green area is 10 seconds walking from our door and in the middle of the city. Our apartment is located very close to all the shopping areas ( champs Elysees, boulevard saint germain, av montaigne for clothe and antiques shopping, and rue du commerce and rue cler for food shopping which are village little pietonary streets were you CAN find typical parisien places, thé best cheese shop in paris Cantin, thé best boulangerie in Paris Seco, thé best catering store in Paris Davoli.... Etc....it is also very near from the cultural places ( Eiffel tower, Invalides, Musée d Orsay, Arc de Triomphe, la Seine Thé river, thé Trocadéro, Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Place de la Concorde etc......it is very rare to be in an apartment in thé center of Paris, close to all thé Nice touristic places, in à quiet and chic area and at thé same Time close to very tipical parisien places, food stores, restaurants, bars, it is unique!!.!!!!
