Accessible and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Marie is a gem of a landlady who goes way out of her way to be kind to strangers in a strange land. As just one example, I'm notorious for getting lost, and she offered to make the twenty minute walk with me to the train station to make sure I made it. She's wonderfully generous with the foodstuffs she stocks in the apartment so you don't have to run out the minute – Heck, even the day – you get there.

I need a mobility scooter to get around, and Marie's flat worked great, which I imagine is not too easy to come by in Paris. Mind you, my scooter is a small one made for travel. The doors and the "curbs" leading into the building were a little difficult, but I think I could've managed them even on my own. Luckily I had a friend with me, so I didn't have to. I really appreciated Marie's honesty in warning me about these potential barriers, so my friend and I could think about how to handle them, even whether to handle them.

The apartment is beautiful, and beautifully decorated. You can sleep two in the bedroom, and two more on the comfortable pullout sofa in the living room. Marie provided an air mattress for the friend who stayed with us for a few days in case we needed it, which was greatly appreciated, although we didn't actually use it. Through a window/door in the bedroom we had access to a glorious big, quiet terrace.

The location is unbeatable, in the quirky Canal St. Martin neighbourhood, right on the canal and not too far and not too close to the crowded and expensive centre of tourist Paris.

It's easy to overlook how important comfortable furniture is, but Marie's flat was a great place to flop and relax after a tough day of having fun.

The sidewalk café almost under the windows is very noisy in the evening, but fine once you close the windows.

I don't want to stay anywhere else the next time I come to Paris.

outre la découverte de notre capitale et de son histoire et anecdote ( hôtel du nord), nous avons pu apprécier un très bon contact avec Marie qui a su répondre rapidement et de façon très sympathique à nos question. L appartement a répondu à nos attentes et plus encore.

le rapport qualité/prix est largement respecté.

Nous reviendrons certainement sur PARIS puisque notre capitale est riche en monuments, et n'hésiterons pas à louer à nouveau cet appartement ou à le recommander.

avis très favorable ...

Séjour agréable à Paris!

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement correspond tout à fait à sa description. Tout était parfait: l'accueil sympathique, la propreté des lieux, le confort de l'appartement, la terrasse très calme, les petits "plus" comme les denrées gentiment proposées et les conseils de la propriétaire...

A proximité immédiate: stations de métro, bus, Vélib, restaurants variés, magasins d'alimentation...

Le quartier est très animé, surtout en soirée, il faut s'attendre à un peu de bruit si on laisse les fenêtres ouvertes! Mais on est à Paris!

Nous recommanderons cette location à des amis, et nous aimerions y revenir!

"Lieu de résidence except...

  • 5 of 5

"Lieu de résidence exceptionnel, idéalement situé!

la propriétaire de l'appartement nous a accueillis très agréablement dans son charmant appartement très fonctionnel. Connexion wifi excellente. Accessibilité parfaite à tout Paris par bus et métro! Nous avons testé nombre de commerces et restaurants, à proximité, notamment dans la rue Lancry : tous sont de qualité! Délicieuses boulangeries en particulier. En couple avec deux jeunes enfants, le square Villemin et les bords du canal St Martin nous ont offert des balades très agréables, à 5 minutes. A proximité de la gare de l''Est, la délicieuse épicerie alsacienne "Schmid" mérite le détour. Nous n''avons que de splendides souvenirs de notre semaine parisienne, et nous le devons beaucoup à cet appartement!!"
