Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: A native of Massachusetts, I now split my time between Paris, Brittany, Boothbay Harbor (Maine), and Manhattan. In addition to my day job, I keep a blog on Paris and a guide to the Boothbay Harbor Region.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
I renovated the entire apartment in 2012 with the idea of renting to vacationers in mind. Every detail is specifically designed to make your stay more enjoyable. You couldn’t pick a better location for exploring historic Paris, its shops and its restaurants!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You’ll have the benefit of my library of Paris and other France guide books, maps and travel literature. You’ll have the benefit of my 6+ years of living and working in Paris — I am always available to help you plan your stay and give suggestions. If you have a question, just ask! You will be greeted by a trusted friend who will give you the keys, show you around the apartment and answer any questions you may have. You’ll have her cell phone number so you can call her (or me) if any issues arise during your stay. I have negotiated fixed rates for airport/train station pick-up and/or drop-off for my guests with a trusted English-speaking driver. I would be happy to help you with anything else that might make your vacation more enjoyable and carefree. But don’t just listen to my reasons, read other guests’ reviews on my online guest book.
