About Colette Vayness
We live in the same building for more than 23 years and we simply love the neighborhood: centrally located, safe, calm and lively, residential yet full of small commerce, bakeries, art (architects, designers), coffee houses, restaurants (very reasonable prices) and the exceptional market (every day except Monday) of Aligre. We'll be more than happy to share our favorites with you.
Colette Vayness purchased this Apartment in 2007

A wonderful week in a truly lovely apartment
We've been to Paris many times but this was probably our most enjoyable stay. A quiet, comfortable, relatively spacious flat in a lively neighborhood. An owner who lives across the courtyard, speaks fluent English and is engaging, informative and flexible. Colette lets you know how you can live like a local but also see the great sights of Paris. Nothing to complain about but that our one week was too short a stay. We hope to come back.
Truly a Lovely place
This Lovely apartment was charming and perfect for our girl's weekend in Paris. Collette was a wonderful host, as was her son that helped us with our luggage! Communication was prompt and detailed. The building had typical old world charm but the apartment was updated and fully functional. The neighborhood was quiet and fun to wander through. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Collette!
We chose this apartment for the reviews on the owner. She was welcoming and helpful. Apartment is easy walk to metro. We enjoyed our visit very much.
Home away from home in Paris
I enjoyed a nine day stay in this lovely apartment located in a residential neighborhood in the 11eme arrondissement of Paris. It has everything I was looking for. It looks over a small private courtyard at the back of the building so there is no noise from the street. The bed and other furnishings are comfortable, clean and attractive. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped for preparing and serving meals. The refrigerator (with freezer) is capacious, and the convection cooktop and microwave oven are fully functional and easy to use. The WiFi is reliable and fast. With a few hints from Colette I was able to enjoy the "Free" TV and music service. During my visit in November I found the heating system easy to adjust to my preferences. I love this location because it combines a great non-touristy neighborhood with easy access by Metro or bus to the attractions of central Paris. It's within minutes of the wonderful Marché Aligre, along with many fine restaurants, cafés, and the beautiful Promenade Plantée. Of all the attractions of this apartment, perhaps best of all is Colette, the kind, capable and generous hostess who lives across the courtyard. She enthusiastically shared with me lots of recommendations for places to eat and shop with the special insight of a long-time resident of the Quartier Sainte-Marguerite. If you are looking for a place to experience life as a Parisian, this may be the one for you!
Wonderful apartment near the Bastille
Clean, sweet place in a good location near the Bastille. Kitchen is perfectly equipped, nice linens, very comfortable bed. Gorgeous wood floors and really nice antiques. Colette is a wonderful host! She spent about 20 minutes with us explaining the maps and restaurants and metro stations of the neighborhood which was a great introduction. Market every morning except Monday a couple minutes walk away. Highly recommended- I look forward to staying here again.
Thank you, it was also a pleasure for me. Colette
Perfect for our family.
