  • Great apartment: Living life as a Parisian

    "We arrived September 20 at the apartment and Myriam was there as planned to meet us. After a short walk through and explanation of the features of the apartment, we were on our own to live and experience Paris. The pictures are a true reflection of the apartment. The apartment itself is old and absolutely wonderful. From the wooden beams running across the ceiling, the period furniture pieces, a piece of Paris from days gone by. If you are renting this apartment it should be for the right reasons and those are to experience life as an every day Parisian and to do so in an apartment that dates back over a century. Things those of us in North American really do not get to see or experience. Yes the apartment is old, yes the bathroom is small and there are 4 flights of stairs (you do somewhat get used to them after a few days Just take your time, after all you are there to experience the lifestyle, so slow down and enjoy). Several times during our trip up or down the stairs we would meet some of the people living in the apartments, on the landing by the stairs and although we were not fluent in French, it's amazing what a smile and few attempts to communicate can accomplish. The apartment is on St. Jacques St which can get noisy with the windows open during the rush hours, however with the windows closed, we had no issue. We found ourselves opening the windows at different times, then sitting down either in the living room or kitchen/dining table and having a glass of wine before heading out in the evening to explore the incredible amount of bistro's and cafe's in and around the area. One thing I should mention is that from the kitchen/dining window, you can see the top 1/4 of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. Great view at night with the lights off, sitting and talking over a glass of wine. As for location, you cannot beat how central you are. It's a 10 minute walk to Notre Dame or the metro lines. You can walk to several other of the districts easily. There are fresh fruit and vegetables stands close by as well as cheese shops, charcuterie shops, wine shops. There is a grocery store a few minutes walk away. It has everything you want close by. Explore the side streets and experience real French bistro's and café's, you won't be disappointed, they are fantastic. Try to avoid places like Gertrude's on the corner, it's more of a tourist type place. Overall, a great original apartment, perfect location to experience the Parisian way of life."

  • Wonderful apartment in the 10th!

    "My family and I had the great fortune to stay at Helene's fabulous apartment last month. I agree with all of the positive, 5-star reviews that are on this listing, all of which were very helpful in making our decision to stay here. It was the perfect location for our family of 5 -- the apartment was very spacious and beautifully decorated, we had everything we needed (we felt like guests in a friend's home), and we loved looking out of the large windows to view the canal below (and watching all of the interesting people going about their day). Helene was also extremely helpful to us before we rented, answering any question we had, and we were ESPECIALLY grateful for her help when one of the members of our family needed a doctor because of an allergic reaction to some food she ate - I called Helene in a bit of a panic looking for advice and she guided me to her resource book that she created for her guests (with all of the information you will need for help, medical assistance, travel tips, restaurants, etc.) and a doctor was able to come to the apartment within 45 minutes! The area is part of an active community and, as has been written, there is some noise from the street, but I personally think that adds to the apartment's charm and personality - I loved that part! There are also many restaurants in the area, with very nice restaurant in our building that was a hangout and a personal favorite of ours. The Metro is a 5 minute walk away, which was also a huge plus for us. Our trip to Paris will be a memory that our family will never forget, and being able to stay at Helene's beautiful apartment will always be a special part of that memory. We will definitely stay here again!"

  • Wonderful studio!

    "This studio apartment had everything you would need for a short stay in Paris. Manuel was very friendly and knowledgable about the city. He was also very communicative with information before we even arrived, which I was very appreciative. It was our first trip to Europe and did not know what to expect. This studio was well located close to the Seine and Metro stations. The place was clean and comfortable. We have no complaints about this rental. We arrived very early, and were able to drop our luggage off with the concierge and just start exploring. I would stay in this studio again if traveling to Paris again."
