  • A True Parisian Stay

    "This apartment was everything we had hoped for in Paris. It was very clean and well appointed plus the location can't be beat. The bed was so comfortable and although you are in the middle of a fun filled area, it was quiet at night when we were ready to sleep. Natasha, who checked us in, is fantastic and explained every detail of the apartment as well as how to move about the city with ease. It's just a quick stroll to Notre Dame and all things bus and metro. We walked to many places so that we could experience it all but did do the metro to Montmarte and Versailles, which was easy as well. Do not miss a meal at the pizza/pasta place across the street. Delicious! Our favorite gift shop was Avanti la musica at the end of the street (turning right out the door). A magical experience in there! We have done many VRBO places and this was an A+."

  • Great location and just the right size

    "My husband and I chose this VRBO rental due to the location and the amenities. We were traveling without a car and planned to use the metro or walk everywhere. We wanted to be close to the metro as well as walking distance to restaurants, bistro's and shops. We were an 800 meter walk to the metro and the Notre Dame Cathedral. The Latin Quarter and Rue Mouffetard markets were both in walking distance. There were also a couple of small grocery stores and a boulangerie, fromagerie and wine shop within walking distance. We stopped at those several times during our stay to pick up items. We were also looking for a place we could return to after a busy morning and afternoon of sightseeing and prepare a light snack and enjoy a glass of wine before venturing out for our evening activities. The studio provided a couch, table and small kitchen that allowed us to feel more relaxed and gave us a place to retreat to after hours of sightseeing. The bed was also quite comfortable. The other notable part is that this is a ground floor rental, for those who may have issues with stairs, this would be ideal for you. Eric is a lovely host and provided all the essentials and then allowed us to enjoy the property. We would stay here again and we would recommend this place to others."
