A light, airy, spacious property of high quality

  • 5 of 5

I had a 2-month stay in this excellent apartment during a work assignment in Paris. Throughout my stay, the owner responded promptly to all my emails and was extremely patient and helpful when there were problems processing the payment.

The property is on the sixth floor in an oldish building kept wonderfully clean and orderly by a concierge, who will also assist with key pick ups and drops etc. but who would probably prefer conversations to be in French.

The apartment is light, airy and uncluttered with a lot of space to move around freely—so much more preferable than the confines of a hotel room. The ingenious use of storage space adds to the unclutteredness—no need to see or fall over suitcases and clothes. The pictures are representative of the property, although they don’t reflect the high degree of cleanliness and quality.

From the balcony you can look down on the trees and street below, count the cheese shops, delis and bakeries and know you’re in Paris. This is an area where people actual live, as opposed to visiting as a tourist. Safety was never an issue. There are large, major supermarkets a 5-min walk away and an extensive Sunday produce market right outside the door. The metro is seconds away as is a taxi rank (55 euro for a CDG airport trip—ranging from a terrifying 30 min to a traffic-laden 90 min, depending on the time of day).

The kitchen is well equipped with sufficient utensils, crockery and cutlery for sophisticated cooking, should you feel so inclined. If you don’t, there are numerous ‘everyday’ restaurants nearby. All the appliances function well and it was particularly useful to have a washing machine and dryer.

The bedroom is quiet and I had the unexpected pleasure of being woken in the morning by bird song—never expected that in the center of Paris. Apart from the inevitable noise from emergency vehicles, the noise from the street is not disturbing.

Overall, I thoroughly recommend this apartment and hope future guests enjoy their stay as much as I did.

Fantastic location, fabulous apartment, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our stay more. Terrific location very near the Convention metro station. Wonderful street market and shopping within walking distance. The apartment was beautiful, clean and had all the amenities one could hope for. The hosts were helpful, informative and very easy to work with. We can't wait to go back.

Lovely Apartment. Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely is the first and last word that comes to mind when I write about my stay. The apartment is well-situated in a part of Paris that has EVERYTHING one needs to spend a month (!!) there. The grocery store is walking distance, there is a farmers' market just up the street 2 times a week. Since I was traveling back and forth to the American Library in another part of the city, I was happy with the ease of moving around on both the Metro (right on the corner) and the bus (Sadly, right outside a VERY delicious boulangerie). There are many great places to eat and to buy groceries, baked goods and wine all within walking distance. There is a movie house right around the corner from the building.

A wonderful apartment in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, with children ages 7 and 9, loved this apartment. It is just beautiful, and very family friendly. There is plenty of room and every convenience is there: new appliances, including a washer and dryer, new hardwood flooring, very nice furniture, and comfortable beds--there are bunk beds in the kids room. And there is a great balcony for morning coffee or evening wine and cheese. The location is perfect if you are looking for a true Paris neighborhood, filled with local shops and cafes, right next to the Metro. The building is very quaint, with a helpful concierge and only two apartments per floor. There is an elevator. The owner made us feel welcome from the very first email exchange and continued to be an excellent person to work with. She is a lovely, kind person, who made sure that we had every question answered and felt very much at home.We look forward to coming back one day!

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely apartment for a week and wished it was longer. It was bright, sunny and clean and had everything we needed. The very well equipped kitchen came in handy as we took advantage of the farmers' market, held three times a week on the street, to cook several meals at home. For other supplies there are supermarkets, bakeries etc close by. We also went to some great local restaurants , including le Cristal de Sel, which has wonderful food and service.

Although we originally chose this place because it was close to a conference my husband was attending, we really enjoyed staying in a more residential neighbourhood without the tourist bustle. It also has the benefit of the metro very close by so it was easy to get around the city. You can walk to the Eiffel Tower in about 25-30 minutes if you're inclined for some exercise.

Laurence was a pleasure to deal with. She replied promptly and was friendly and helpful with all the information we needed via email. She arranged for her brother to meet us on arrival. He was great and went through the apartment with us and helped us with the few queries we had. There is also an information folder with details for many services you could need during your stay.

We don't hesitate to recommend this apartment for your visit to Paris, you will enjoy it!

Convention is a young neighborhood just a few streets from Porte de Versailles. It is a trendy residential area which attracts young people and young families thanks to its modern feel. The proximity of the Montparnasse clubs, just at the other end of Rue de Vaugirard, is a real plus.

There are 3 main roads, Rue de Vaugirard, Rue de Convention, and Rue Lecourbe, close to the flat where you will find everything you need (grocery stores, convenience stores, bakeries, bars, and restaurants).

There are many attractions, both for young people and families: the nearby Parc André Citroën, Parc des Expositions, and the shops of Montparnasse/ rue de Rennes. There are many charming gardens to relax in around the neighborhood for example Square Desnouettes is 5 min walk. A little further away, Parc André Citroën offers hot air balloon flights with panoramic views of the Eiffel Tower. The park attracts Sunday walkers, families and young people, who like to relax on the lawns. It also has two tropical greenhouses and a man-made island.

A stone's throw from Paris’s Parc des Expositions, Convention is perfect for catching big annual events like the Foire de Paris, the Paris Motor Show, and Manga Expo.

Finally, on the other side of Rue de Vaugirard, the 690-foot Tour Montparnasse overlooks the district. The tower's terrace offers a 360° view of Paris and its monuments. On a clear day, you can see for up to 25 miles!

Metro line 12 is 1 min away from the house. The beltway is easily accessible from Porte de Versailles.
