Catherine and Thierry are both living and working in Paris.
Hi Catherine, belated Nic and I wanted to thank you and your husband for the wonderful stay in your apartment at 61 rue de Lyon. We could not have found a better place which was not only furnished with great taste and included all possible luxuries and conveniences but its location is absolutely perfect to enjoy Paris to its fullest. Nic, my grandson, figured out the Metro system to perfection and we saw and experienced Paris as much as one could in our 10 day stay. We became regulars at the Aligre market but where unable to taste all its cheeses, the stop at the bakery on the way became a must. You might have noticed the market peonies we left in the apartment, we could not resist them.Thank you for providing so many great Paris tips in your information folder.
Grandson Nic fell in love with Paris and I rediscovered it again through his eyes and you provided the perfect base from which we had an unforgettable stay.
With warm thanks,
We arrived late due to a delayed flight, yet this wasn't a problem and a neighbour let us in. The location was perfect and near to a market, Marais, walkable to the centre of Paris and close to transport options. We discovered two excellent bakeries nearby, with the most delicious pastries. The apartment was quite noisy at night, although it was close to Christmas, so possibly the time of year for celebration! Catherine and Thierry came to collect the rent and brought us croissants! They communicated to ensure we were ok and provided good suggestions of nearby eateries. There was also a bottle of wine and marmalade provided. The apartment was spacious, clean, well-equipped and the hosts friendly and generous. I would highly recommend it and would certainly stay there on my return to Paris.
We once again enjoyed our stay in Catherine's apartment. It is well located with easy access to the train station, metro line and close to many interesting places within walking distance. The apartment has everything you would need; full kitchen with washer and dryer and dishwasher! The kitchen is well outfitted to cook with the many wonderful ingredients found at the nearby market. The bed is comfortable and the apartment has many windows to let in the light and fresh air- there is also an air conditioner available! We were welcomed with wine and roses and our favourite coffee. It felt a bit like coming home. Thanks once again for the wonderful accommodations in a wonderful city!
We (family of 3) had a wonderful 3 night stay in Catherine and Thierry's apartment. The facilities were excellent and the location was ideal. A supermarket was located two shops from the front door and there were plenty of restaurants in the area. The Metro is a couple of minutes walk away. Thierry met us at the apartment and showed us around. Catherine and Thierry have created a book which provides plenty of information on the apartment's facilities as well as recommendations and directions to places of interest, etc. Catherine responded to all my emails and even posted my husband's watch (he had left it behind) to our next accommodation in France. I highly recommend this apartment.
We had a very nice four night stay in Catherine and Thierry's apartment. The living area is large with high ceilings and the kitchen is well stocked with all needed pans and appliances. The location is close to train, metro and bus as well as within walking distance of many museums and attractions. The supermarket and boulangerie are only a block away. Communication with Catherine was very easy. The only negative was a bit of noise at night from the drunks outside the nearby nightclub. Ear plugs were handy to block out the noise from the summer solstice partiers. Thankfully there are not late night shows at the club every night. We recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
Catherine met us at the apartment to show us around and had a bottle of wine, some fresh bread, and home made jam that her husband made waiting for us which was delicious. The apartment was just as expected and is in a great area with restaurants and shops close by. There is everything you would need to help you, city maps, books, restaurant recommendations, etc. We loved feeling like a local, even if it was just for 3 nights. Catherine was so easy to work with that we would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends. Enjoyed our stay in Paris and hope to return again soon!
My husband and I recently stayed here for 5 nights and we could not have been happier with the accommodations! Catherine and Thierry were very easy to deal with. Catherine always responded quickly to any email request. Thierry met me at the apartment and showed me all of the necessary details. They have also created a very detailed book giving all information for using the wifi, the appliances, TV, etc., along with restaurant recommendations, directions to the local markets, Metro and various transportation information, in short, everything you could need. The apartment is very quiet and well equipped. The location is also great as it is 1 block from the Bastille Metro station with 3 lines running through it including the #1 line which takes you directly to many of the most famous Paris attractions. I encourage anyone looking for a great, well-priced Paris apartment to give it a try. We will definitely rent it again when our plans take us back to Paris!
