                          The intrepid Bear on the observation deck of the Eiffel Tower. 07/21/2003

                          VRBO Bear stayed here:

                          My first thought coming through the front door of this elegant Paris loft was "il est merveilleux!" - it's wonderful! This was just what a wandering bear and his traveling companion wanted after a long flight over the 'big pond'. It's apparent that great care was taken in designing and furnishing this apartment. It's beautifully decorated and has been featured in a book about small apartments and a television special about vacation rentals.

                          Although this apartment is quite compact, it has all the features needed for a wonderful stay. There is a state-of-the-art entertainment system complete with a large selection of DVDs and CDs for your pleasure. Many of the CDs feature French entertainers and there are many jazz selections, some recorded in local clubs. Several of the movies were filmed in Paris, making it interesting to visit an attraction during the day, then see it on the 'big screen' that evening.

                          The location couldn't be more ideal. The Montmartre district of Paris is a fascinating collection of galleries, restaurants, jazz clubs, shops, and residences, all crowned by the Sacre Coeur Basilica high on a hill overlooking the entire city. The loft is a short walk from the Gare du Nord train station and 2-3 blocks from two different Metro stations. You definitely won't need a car if you intend to spend your time in the city. It's a short Metro ride to sights like Le Louvre, the Tour du Eiffel, Notre Dame, and Versailles.

                          Our hosts, Peter and Rita were wonderful to deal with and provided guidebooks and maps to make my walks around the city that much easier. Merci beaucoup to them for their generosity and assistance. Au revoir!

                          Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 18:
                          We bought this apartment to use it ourselves in the first place. So we looked for an area that was safe, child-friendly and not to touristic. On the other hand it had to be at walking distance to the main attractions like Louvre, Marais, Champs Elysées etc..
