Terrific apartment for a large group
Terrific apartment for a large group
Our family of nine adults had a terrific stay in this large, comfortable apartment in an outstanding neighborhood location in the 5e. We were four couples plus one single, so we were happy to find that the large, comfortable living room could both sleep one couple and be closed off for privacy. The living room/dining room is terrific for relaxing and family time together after a long day in the city. The apartment feels comfortably lived-in. It's not luxurious (and wasn't advertised as such), but it's clean and has everything that we needed. One full bath with a tub/shower (plus a separate half-bath) turned out to be no problem for our group. The kitchen is a little cramped, but we managed to cook Thanksgiving dinner together, as well as enjoy other meals at home. The location in a lively residential/student neighborhood close to but just outside of the main tourist track was perfect for us. Highly recommended for a group that enjoys a comfortable and informal atmosphere. We didn't need much from the owner and agent, but both made it clear that they were very available if we did. We felt lucky to find this place.

Great apt for a true Paris experience
Great apt for a true Paris experience
We loved the apartment. Seemed like just what one would expect a true Parisian apt to be like. Great character. Listing was accurately described and communication with rental service was efficient. The apt was about a 15 minute walk from Luxumbourg Gardens and easily accessible to the metro.

My family and I, 7 adults in total, loved staying at the apartment on Rue Cuvier. We live at the beach in Southern California, so spending two weeks in this Parisian apartment in the Latin Quarter was a delightfully new experience for our entire family. The apartment location was fantastic and gave us a taste of genuine Parisian living. With the metro, train and bus terminal just blocks away we were able to get anywhere in Paris within minutes. Every morning my husband awoke early and walked down the street to a fantastic bakery where he bought us freshly baked pastries. Enjoying warm pain du chocolate with cafe au lait in Claire's charming kitchen was one of the simple joys of Parisian living. I could never tire of gazing out the kitchen window at the magestic bronze lion who stands guard over the gardens at the Jardin des Plants. The apartment itself takes up the entire 3rd floor of a charming historic building. Tall beautiful old windows let in lots of light and air. The three primary bedrooms were spacious and appointed with crisp, freshly ironed linens. The living and dining area accomodated all of us comfortably. Although the kitchen was small by US standards, with the help of "Chef Phillipe", we were able to cook two fantastic multi-course meals with fresh fish and produce we purchased at the local farmer's market. Claire has tastefully decorated the apartment in an eclectic style combining simple found objects such as sea glass and bits of driftwood with more modern l'objects de la trouve. I found that the rough cut oak floors and bare wood table tops added to her shabby chic decorating style. True the full bath was a bit dated, but we really appreciated the full sized washer and dryer installed there. I loved every moment of my 2 week stay and was sorry to leave. I will definitely rent this apartment again only this time I will try to stay for a month!

I was disappointed with this apartment. On the positive side: - it was very spacious and mostly quiet (except for people in the adjoining courtyards smashing glass into the recycling bins and talking loudly at all hours of the night!) - the lounge room furnishings were comfortable and most of the appliances worked well. - the beds were reasonably comfortable - the location was excellent & the view from the kitchen window over the gardens was lovely - Claire obligingly allowed us to store our luggage prior to the official check-in time On the negative side: - The apartment was not well-maintained. For example: the wooden floors were rough (splinters in the feet!); the carpet was stained and in poor condition; the tiles in the kitchen were cracked and in poor condition; some of the furniture was in very poor condition; the coffee maker was in poor condition; the connection to the freebox (media system) was broken and had to be taped together; many of the light bulbs in the various lamps were missing; the duvets were in poor condition – lumpy, torn or stained - there was no running hot water in the kitchen or in the hand basin in the small toilet room -closet space was inadequate (in fact, there was only one small closet in the hallway for hanging clothes, with just a few hangers, and some of the space was taken up with a vacuum cleaner and other items). There was shelving, much of which was taken up with the owner’s own possessions. - the views from the bedroom windows were onto other buildings in the courtyard and even the lounge room windows mostly overlooked a building in the gardens opposite - there was a great deal of clutter everywhere, contrary to the images on the website - overall, I found the appearance of the apartment rather shabby and certainly nothing like as elegant as shown in the photos.

We had the fortunate privilege of enjoying a marvelous stay in this lovely home for twelve days in June. The days were long and luxurious as the sun did not go down until about ten thirty at night. Claire was a perfect hostess and helped us with a critical phone call to line-up a private car to Giverny...We had booked it on line with pick up at the apartment... the email the next day said that it was not possible. She just dropped by to inquire about our departure and was able to place a "french" call to assure us that we would be picked up that afternoon. Ali (our six year old) said that she had a "new friend" in France. We absolutely loved the whole experience and felt as if we were indeed part of the populace for that short period of time.... we enjoyed the trains, boats, buses and taxis, food and wine....all very convenient and delicious!!

Claire is a wonderful, effusively welcoming host. The apartment is spacious, full of light and perfect for our troupe of two couples, two singles...a grandmere and an uncle and two daughters (one husband/animal-hunting and one Nutella-hunting). The long table in the main parlour was the center for much eating and drinking. Conviently, the market at Place Monge is three blocks away and the fantastic cheese shop at the bottom of Moufftard a couple more. The modern oven and stove top performed well in support of the feasts. The street has apartments on one side only, which leaves you with a view of tall trees, a Mansard-roofed museum office, statuary and blue sky (in our case). A wonderfully comfortable experience. Thanks from all of us.

The apartment was perfect for 7 women for 5 nights. The beds were comfortable, even for the 2 who slept two-to-a-bed and for those on fold-out couches. The rooms were spacious and there was plenty of space to be together or to go off and read or take a nap. The neighborhood, though lively and great fun for eating, shopping, and visiting, was surprisingly quiet at night. The Jardin des Plantes right across the street is a source of birdsong, lush plantings, running and walking paths, and serenity in the heart of Paris - not to be missed! From the apartment it is a short walk to many sights including Notre Dame, the quays along the Seine, the markets and shops on rue Mouffetard, and the bustling evening scene at the Contrescarpe. We could have used a little more space for our clothes, but the lovely and helpful owner of the apartment plans to add hanging and storage space as well as another shower very soon. The owner and her family live in this apartment and vacate during rentals, leaving a spotless, well-equipped kitchen and a beautifully furnished home. We loved living there and hope to return.

Perfect for a two-family stay
Perfect for a two-family stay
We had a fantastic experience staying at this 4-bedroom apartment. The place was perfect for two families with young children - beautifully laid out, comfortable, and clearly well-maintained. It included many unexpected extras, including comics and toys for the children and kitchen amenities. Coordination was easy and simple with Nicolas. I would also highly rate the apartment for its location - it was in the middle of great restaurants, parks, transportation links and shops (I would especially recommend the crepe stand across from the Metro on the corner and the Arenes de Lutece park/playground). All in all, a terrific place for a stay in Paris.

Fantastic Parisian Apartment For Large Group
Fantastic Parisian Apartment For Large Group
Being able to find an apartment in Paris that would comfortably accommodate eight, including four kids was a difficult thing to find. When we came across this apartment it was almost too good to be true. We ended up absolutely loving our stay and found this apartment charming, filled with amenities, and great for a large group. We were warned of potential issues with running out of hot water but never had an issues because we rotated shower times during the day/evening. The owner was so nice and made sure to tour us through her beautiful space and teach us how to use everything in the apartment. The Metro is so close...a five minute walk which turned out to also be one of my favorite things about renting here. The restaurants close by were excellent...don't miss the cous cous restaurant across the street and the italian was great. If we were to travel to Paris again with a large group we would certainly stay here.

We rented this apartment for Christmas and new year 2011/2012 on the internet. And we had a fantastic experience. Throughout the negociation did very well attended and was very easy. From the first contact until the end of our stay, Nicolas and Claire were very kind and concerned about our comfort and well being. We were very well received in Paris, the apartment is great and meets all requirements as making us feel at home. We had wonderful days in Paris and the apartment Cuvier 18, part of this. The only thing to point out that as we were in many people, so sometimes the hot water ran out, making the cold bath, but it was a small detail, through the great experience. I recommend this apartment for the place, location and service. Thanks for everything Claire and Nicolas, mainly due care and attention on our trip, I hope to see you again soon. Fernanda
