Perfect Oasis in Paris
"This is a perfect home-away-from-home for two people in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Paris. We spent a week here and loved it! After a tiresome day and half of planes and trains, the last hot Metro ride, a walk dragging two suitcases through busy, narrow streets, we were so, so happy to find the door. Walking into the apartment we were met by the most darling space, flooded by sunlight. The pictures on this website tell no lies; the apartment is exactly as shown. It is immaculate and filled with little touches that really made it feel like home: pictures on the walls and shelves, books, games, DVDs, an umbrella and shopping bag on a hook by the door. Julie and Fabrice thought of everything -- the drawers of that small desk by the door hold grounding plugs and adapters, scissors and tape, lightbulbs, pens and paper, and maps of the city. The tall windows are extremely soundproof, so when closed you can leave behind the bustle of the sidewalks below. The neighborhood is lively - crowded with cafes, boulangeries, patisseries, fruit and cheese shops, and enough take-away traiteurs that you could eat another ethnicity every day of the week without cooking. Multiple Metro stations are quite close by, so all of Paris is just steps away. I see from previous reviews, many people have returned repeatedly to this apartment. We will as well."

"We spent four days in this large studio apartment, exploring the upper Marais and St. Martin's canal. The apartment is on the 1st floor (2nd Floor in U.S. parlance), and the stairs are a bit tricky as they curve around. Once in the apartment, it is very comfortable. We were there in July with temperatures in the 90's and the air conditioning was a blessing! The kitchen was sufficient for a short stay, as we only made coffee and ate cereal and fruit in the apartment. The bathroom has a shower with removable head. There is plenty of cabinet space and an abundance of towels.
The location is wonderful! Really good restaurants and bakeries within a 5-10 minute walk, and three metro stops at no more than 10 minutes walk. The canal area is about a 15 minute walk through Place Republic, and both the Place and canal are well worth the visit. The canal on a warm evening is buzzing with life as people picnic and stay cool by the canal breeze and cooling effect of the locks.
Claude is very helpful in getting oriented to the area, with great written materials. She speaks excellent English and is readily available by email and phone.
We plan on going back to Paris and this will be a great place to stay again!"

"My family of four had a lovely time in this apartment. Fantastic location and very helpful host. The bedroom looks out onto a quiet, lush courtyard. Everything you need is in walking distance including bakery, restaurants, supermarkets, transport. The apartment was very comfortable and quiet and we will definitely book here when we return to Paris."

"My family and I loved everything about this apartment. It is well appointed, spacious and extremely comfortable. The owners left very helpful notes for use of appliances as well as favorite local spots. The neighborhood is ideal with fantastic restaurants, shops and galleries. The Picasso museum is 5 minutes away. I would absolutely rent here again."
