About the owner: A Bryn Mawr graduate, after travelling extensively and living and working in the US and Iraq, I have taught English in higher education institutions for years.
I lost my husband in February 2012. Our 25-year-old twin sons live with me when they do not work in Ireland, London or Denmark: Emmanuel is a cartoon animator and Jonathan an IT engineer currently launching his own start-up with two engineer friends.
Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4: The apartment is located on the 6th floor while we live on the 5th, so that it is very easy to provide our guests with good service: it is very reassuring for them as well.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Although small, the apartment is uniquely central and enjoys a magnificent view over the whole of Paris, with the Eiffel Tower twinkling in the distance at night, an extraordinary sight for all our guests. It is the perfect base to stay for a young couple as it is so reasonably priced.
