About Bernadette Icovic

We are a family of five: Hervé and Bernadette work in the cinema industry; Aurélien and Alexander, twins of 27, have now left the house and work in the Cinema Business as us. Antonin, 17 years old, still lives home! Of course we love cinema, theater and cultural activities. We have a huge flat screen TV with a library of over 400 DVD. We usually travel during school holidays, thats how our penthouse, which is our mainhome around the year, is available two or three times a year.

Why Bernadette Icovic chose Paris

We love this neighborhood of the Left Bank of Paris, full of History and so easy to live in, shop around, get to a restaurant: safe and beautiful, in the very heart of swinging Paris and so close to a park such as the Luxembourg.

What makes this apartment unique

Our view over Paris is outstanding.

Our home looks like a house in Paris on its 2 levels.

We feel so comfortable.

Perfect vacation apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful vacation over Christmas and New Year's at this perfect Paris apartment. Bernadette is a wonderful host, providing helpful recommendations and guidance about the neighborhood restaurants and shopping and she went above and beyond to help us. We were concerned about getting a reservation for the evening of December 25th and Bernadette went ahead and made a reservation for us at a wonderful restaurant. When we arrived, there was a Christmas tree with lovely gifts underneath it for our family. The apartment has spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coeur. We loved the location and we were able to walk all over the city from the apartment. It was perfectly equipped for our family of four. I would recommend this apartment to others and would love to stay there again.

Spectacular apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We feel so lucky to have spent our time in Paris in this perfect and spacious apartment. It had everything we needed for our family and Bernadette was a wonderful host. Our family was so comfortable there and we cannot wait to return! The views were breathtaking and the location was ideal-- everything was within walking distance from groceries and restaurants to shopping and workout studios. There is a delightful open air market right down the street which adds to the appeal of this apartment. Thank you Bernadette for making our time in Paris so easy and enjoyable!

Perfect Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) just returned from an amazing week in in this wonderful Paris apartment. The views were gorgeous, the apartment perfectly equipped with anything a family might need (including a fabulous espresso maker!). The location is lovely and close to everything. We walked all over Paris from our home base.

Bernadette and her son were so helpful to us during the entire rental process and when we arrived. We could not have asked for more gracious hosts. Her shopping and restaurant recommendations were perfect.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to others and we sincerely hope to stay here again.

Perfect Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this lovely apartment in the heart of Paris. The location is incredible and the owners are wonderful. The apartment is very's close to the Metro and all the sites in Paris. There's a farmers market on the street several times a week. Resturants of every kind...the owners give great recommendations! We were here for 3 weeks and it feels like our home in Paris. if you can get it...take them up. You won't be disappointed.

One of our favourite holidays!

  • 5 of 5

I concur with all the previous reviews. Our family consists of 2 adults, and 20, 18, and 15 year old children. We love to travel on school holidays over the Christmas break and did a lot of research on Parisian neighbourhoods. This apartment was perfect in many, many ways. The location was quiet from a street perspective, but so incredibly close to everything. We bought warm croissants and pastries every morning, took the easily accessible bus and subway almost every day, and generally basked in the enjoyment of Christmas in Paris. Everything was open every day and we completely loved it. The apartment was perfect--as well we highly enjoyed the Nespresso machine! Although we loved it...I have to be honest that the beds were a little small for adult sized children. No one complained, but it was a little tight sleeping. We did know beforehand, however, that this would be the case but happily accepted it.

The apartment itself was perfectly equipped, and we were in need of nothing. The views were gorgeous, the DVD selection amazing, Bernadette's restaurant and shopping recommendations were wonderful. She even made a reservation for us before we arrived for my son's 18th birthday and we were absolutely thrilled when the waiters all came out and brought him a cake and sang Happy Birthday en francais!! We still laugh about it and were touched by her thoughtfullness. I would not hesistate to recommend this apartment and sincerely hope to return to it again in the future.

Perfect location in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

My husand, our two children (ages 12 and 13), and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for three weeks in July. The location was excellent! Close to shopping in every direction, organic farmers market 2 blocks away, and the metro was steps from the front door. The apartment itself was very charming, comfortable and equipped with everything you'd need and more. Our children especially enjoyed the 100's of DVD's to choose from, and kept them entertained after a long day of sight-seeing. The owner was extremely helpful and gave us advice on things to do, restaurants, and shopping, etc. We can't wait to return to Paris next summer and stay at this same apartment!
