"My husband and I were coming to Paris for a week to celebrate our anniversary. We wanted to stay in an apartment to feel more Parisian and to save money. We had never used VRBO abroad, so I had many, many questions and Nathalie, the owner, could not have been more helpful in answering them. She was quick to reply to my emails and was very accommodating.
Location, location, location. The apartment location is fantastic! You are steps away from a lively intersection with lots of restaurants and cafes, yet the apartment is on a quiet street, set back in a courtyard where we always felt safe and slept well. You are also in the 6th, where everything is at your fingertips! The Seine River was a 10 minute walk away (as well as the heart of Paris). The Luxembourg Gardens are in your backyard and are a 3 minute walk away. There are several metro stops close by, which made it easy to get everywhere. The 6th is also known for amazing restaurants, which made the apartment location perfect for walking to dinner every night!
(A side note, we are from Chicago, so we are used to public transportation. We took the train (RER) direct from the airport to the Luxembourg stop. It was simple, no transfers and it saved us time and money! If you are familiar with public transportation, it was a breeze!)
The apartment itself is quintessential Europe. It’s small, low ceilings, but updated and has everything you need! There is a nice kitchen, large living room, an updated bathroom, and a comfortable Queen bed. The apartment was lovely, updated, clean, and had everything we needed and definitely more space than any of the overpriced hotels in Paris.
Check in/check out, was super easy. We arrived early and were able to get in no problem.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great Parisian experience! Thanks Nathalie! We hope to come back."
