                            This is the perfect setting to enjoy Paris for 2 couples. The decor is stunning, the functionality is perfect, the attention to details is impeccable. The greeter was there to see us in and out, despite the delay on the way there and an insanely early departure!(thank you!) The location is close to everything you want to explore in the very heart of Paris, but for those wishing to travel a little further by car - the 24hr paid parking is 1/2 a block away. Amazingly, the street is quiet in such a busy area! We would definitely book it again!

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                            This flat is cute cute cute. Love the use of space and architectural detailing. The only thing I had a disappointment in was that this place was so expensive and the door buzzer / intercom system did not worth. Definitely would stay there again if they got that fixed.

                            We found this apartment quite comfortable and well located for the Louvre. Metro and cabs had easy availability. The apartment was nicely furnished with essentials and bakeries, cafes and grocers are nearby.

                            We were fortunate enough to stay at the Louvre - Palais royal over the holidays. We are a family of 5 (parents and 3 adult children) and the apartment was a perfect fit! It was important to us to be able to stretch out and have our own spaces as we sometimes had our own agendas and this foot the bill! And the location was perfect - 2 blocks from the Louvre. A 20 minute walk to Notre Dame. A 30 minute walk to the Eiffel tower. Ten to fifteen minutes to major retail stores. We put on our tennies and were out the door every morning to explore the wonderful city of Paris. It was nice to have small grocery stores within 1-2 blocks to fill the refrigerator. Having a washer and dryer was a must for us! And we wanted to feel at home on Christmas morning, so the beautiful dishes and glassware made it a very special occasion for us. There were many close by restaurants and bakeries to choose from, our favorite being the Gallette Cafe which we found the last day we were there - darn - would have eaten there several times had we discovered it earlier! Welcome 2 France does an excellent job of keeping you informed of the status of your reservation - has insurance been purchased, has a driver been arranged, etc. Their website is friendly and easy to use and you arrive feeling everything is well organized. We were greeted at the apartment and were taken through how to operate the oven, washer/dryer, etc. A handy binder with instructions on all appliances, TVs, etc and well as useful phone numbers was available for our reference...and came in handy! Arranging transportation from the train station an back was convenient and easy. The apartment made our stay in Paris a memorable one!

                            In the interests of efficiency, I will list factors and we considered all of which are top-notch: apartment lay-out, furnishings, kitchen (particularly the stove!!), loft, furnishings, cleanliness and weekly service, location (Louvre and Tuileries 5 minutes away, Notre Dame and Geo. Pompidou Center 10 minutes walk). Importantly, everything was as represented. As we stayed for a month, we interacted a bit with the "business" staff -- everyone was great, truly professional and focused on our having a great holiday.

                            This apartment was exactly as it appears in the photos. We were delighted with it for the eleven days we were there with our daughter. She arrived from Taiwan at the same time as we arrived from Boston and we could not have had better living arrangements. She had her own space in the loft, we had our own bedroom and we were able to share the common space together. It was close to everything we wanted to do in Paris (only a few blocks from the Louvre) and it was so convenient to more than one patisserie for our breakfast croissants and to the supermarket down the street. The apartment was clean and well appointed so that we lacked nothing. Our contact, Alicia, was a delight. We spent time talking with her about her life in Paris and she gave us many tips as to what to see and where to eat. In all, the Palais Royal apartment was perfect for our stay in Paris.

                            . We had just a fantastic time in Paris using this apartment as our base. We had our three kids with us 10, 7, 5 and the appartment was just perfect size for us It was a remarkable experience! When we return we would not hesitate to stay at this or any of the other "welcome to France" properties..The communication with the them was outstanding from the time we booked to the time we arrived and was met at the appartment was more than someone can ask for quick, prompt, clear, polite and helpful. Our contact was waiting for us on the apartment, she was so polite and helpful. The location was perfect. From the neighborhood (which is peaceful and safe) with an excellent bakery just down the street to the Metro Louve or Palais Royale.. to the sites, The Louvre, The Tuileries gardens are all within 5 min walk it was so easy to get around even with the kids. This location really made a lot of things so easy for us..So I highly recommend it.. In terms of recommendations, we explored so much that most of the times we would eat where ever we were I think that is part of the allure of a city with so many excellent restaurants..but the folks at Welcome to France will point out a number of great restaurants and there is a book in the apt that list everything in the area and has contacts for anything you may need from Taxis to restaurants.

                            If I return to Paris, I would not hesitate to stay at this apartment again. The location was perfect. It was a 5 minute walk to the Palais Royale Metro stop. The Louvre itself was 5 minutes away. The Tuileries gardens = 5-10 minutes (I do walk fast, but they're that close)! Many bistros and shops are practically right outside the door - check out Cafe Louise right down the Rue Croix des Petits Champs, and the Place des Victoires (2 minutes North) has some great window shopping (and boutiques). This apartment is peaceful and quiet by day - hardly any traffic or noise, and as it's across from the Banque de France, there's not much going on at night, either. There are conveniences as well, a fabulous bakery around the corner for fresh pain au chocolat and baguettes and a drug store down the street (maybe 4 or 5 doors). I really loved this neighborhood and always felt safe, even alone at night. The apartment itself is not large, but it's charming, functional, and clean. Two couples and me (adult female) fit just fine (I got the daybed in the living room). Keep in mind that the upstairs bedroom is a loft and therefore it's not super private, but the downstairs bedroom is enclosed. Our Welcome2France shuttle service went perfectly. And free long distance?!? Amazing. When we had questions they were answered promptly...we had a great experience with Welcome2France. We really only had trouble with the washer/dryer combo - I accidentally washed/dried my clothes twice. Quel dommage! Oh, BTW, in France, the 1st floor means you walk up a flight.

                            We would like to thank you for the beautiful time we spent at your apartment. It was a remarkable experience! Sometimes the pictures look better than the real place, But with that lovely apartment -they were just the real thing Unfortunately we could not stay more, but any time we will be in Paris we would love to stay there again. The connection with you was more than someone can ask for. Quick, prompt, clear, polite and helpful. Our contact was waiting for us on the apartment, she was so polite and helpful. We felt at home!!! We enjoyed our stay very much, and honestly recomend the apartment to other people. Thanks for everything.
