About Lori Preston

We are permanent residents of the Bay Area in California. We spent two years living in Paris with our then 8 year and 12 year old from 2001-2003. Enamored with the Parisian lifestyle, we enjoy sharing our special apartment with our guests, many who equally enjoy our favorite City! We've been so happy to host many return visitors.

Lori Preston purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Lori Preston chose Paris Arr. 15 (Montparnasse, Parc des Expositions)

Our apartment is in a lovely neighborhood filled with cafes, markets, shopping, parks. It's just two blocks to the Champs de Mars/Eiffel Tower! And although it's in the heart of the City, it has a distinctly residential feel. We fell in love the day we walked through the doors of our magnificent early twentieth century building. When we first saw the lovely mosaic entryway, the beautiful stained glass window on the stairway, and then the beautiful double doors which provide a fitting entry to our lovely apartment, we were smitten.

What makes this apartment unique

All of the Parisian charm with tasteful updates. Remodeled with the discriminating visitor in mind. This is also our home away from home when we come to Paris!

Even MORE wonderful in real life!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The magic begins as soon as you arrive in the beautiful lobby. A breathtaking hint of what is to come. The charming (cozy) elevator that runs like a well oiled machine makes all the luggage and purchases conveyance so much easier! Upon entering the apartment - you must take a moment to pinch yourself - is this REALLY where we're staying? The spacious two bedroom apartment is beautifully appointed (even more lovely than the pictures) and clearly well cared for. Lori & Jim have put a lot of love and thoughtful touches to make this a comfortable oasis for travellers.

Practical observations: SO centrally located. The metro is really just around the corner. Many restaurants/markets/boulangeries & patisseries within a block or two. Modern conveniences: washer/dryer (read the instructions!), really hot water and great water pressure. We did not cook whilst in Paris (too many food opportunities to explore) but the well appointed kitchen was lovely to sit in and enjoy our coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice (from Franprix) and morning treats.

The only downside to our stay - How did the time pass so quickly? Eleven days flew right by!

Nice apartment, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Lori were wonderful. They were kind, thoughtful, and truly eager to help. I would not hesitate to rent from them again.

The apartment was cute. The picture were accurate. The location was nice, situated in a very safe and quiet residential street but still nearby many restaurants within walking distance of Champ de Mars, Tour d'Eiffel, Rue Cler, and more.

Light and bright!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our apt. in Rouen. The owner was lovely and easy to work with, she even left us beautiful fresh flowers, fresh bread, butter, jam and milk for our stay. The apt. is light and bright with a pretty little couch that's perfect for lounging and reading nestled under three big windows. The view is terrific. Easy access from the highway and we were able to easily park our car on the street.

If you are going to Paris...this is your apartment. Perfect location just a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower, three metro stops, and cute cafes. All the comforts you'd want at an apartment and Lori was very easy to work with, in fact, her partner (husband?) was in Paris and offered to come see us and give us some local knowledge. Price is extremely reasonable for the value. We were there with our two teenage daughters and it was perfect. Book it, you won't be sorry. Merci!

Car: not necessary

One of the best areas in Paris - close to the Eiffel Tower but in the heart of a real Parisian neighborhood - lovely shops, grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, shopping. The metro is just around the corner!
