About Andrea

I am myself a worldwide traveler who went many times to the United States and to many countries in Asia.

Andrea purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Andrea chose Petit-Montrouge

I chose this arrondissement because it is safe and quiet area , close to the major touristic attractions and I fell in love with this atelier because I am a painter myself !

What makes this apartment unique

The location has an easy access to the public transportation and all major touristic attractions are within a few minutes with metro, bus and RER from my apartment

Notre "chez nous" à Paris

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely--beautiful windows and fine art throughout, in an area of Paris not overrun with tourists. Unlike some vacation apartments that are clearly investment opportunities, here you really feel like a guest in Andrea's home. There is ample dishware and towels, and all kinds of shopping on the nearby rue Daguerre. We loved having breakfast on the terrace every morning! Easy access to the RER and métro, and a surprisingly quick walk to Montparnasse. Andrea, Marie-Christine, and Julie were all delightful--friendly, helpful, and responsive to emails. One word of caution: Our family of three arrived at the height of a heatwave; this top-floor apartment with its beautiful windows gets really hot! Our son absolutely needed the single fan for the mezzanine, which left the main bedroom almost unbearable. We purchased a second fan the next day at Darty and that helped. Since we couldn't bring the fan home with us, maybe it will make things more comfortable for future renters.

A wonderful month in Paris

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate to stay an entire month in Paris and this apartment was the perfect place. With its high ceilings and sunlit floor to ceiling windows it is gorgeous. And the rooftop terrace offers wonderful city views. It has everything you need if you wish to make a temporary home in Paris.

Also, the neighborhood of Montparnasse is a wonderful Parisian neighborhood with cafes, restaurants, and shopping. This is where Hemingway, and later Sartre, Beauvoir all stayed during their Paris time. Sartre and Beauvoir are buried in the Cemetery nearby. I recommend picking up a copy of A Movable Feast at Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It's the perfect Paris and Montparnasse reading.

The neighborhood is also very quick by metro or bus to the main tourist attractions in Paris. If you do decide to participate in the bike share, there is a station around the corner.

In addition, Marie-Christine and Andrea are wonderful hosts. Marie-Christine is readily available for any questions you may have. I hope to come back to Paris next year and when I do, I will definitely stay here again.

We'll Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews of the apartment were right -- it is perfectly situated and perfectly managed and perfectly delightful. It is large, light and airy. My husband and I spent two weeks there in October and would happily stay there again. The kitchen was well-appointed and big enough for the two of us to cook together and the entire apartment was very comfortable and very clean. The loft and terrace are wonderful bonus spaces and the extremely high ceilings contribute to the open feel of the apartment.

Marie-Christine accommodated our early arrival and couldn't have been more charming. She recommended Musee Marmottan Monet, which turned out to be one of the highlights of the entire trip. (If you're a fan of Impressionism, don't miss it.) We loved the residential quality of the 14th arrondissement, with Tuesday and Friday markets a block from the apartment and the pedestrian shopping street (rue Daguerre) just a block away as well. The Denfert-Rochereau metro stop is a four-minute walk, with several metro lines to get you into the center quickly and easily, and direct access to the airport on the RER B.

All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased with the apartment.

A perfect apartment in Montparnasse

  • 5 of 5

Andrea’s apartment is wonderful. It added immeasurably to our trip. Airy, light-filled, beautifully furnished, full of fascinating objects and books, it was always a pleasure to come back to – and difficult to leave. The kitchen is well-equipped; everything is clean and clear. You can have coffee and read on the lovely rooftop terrace. At night it’s so quiet you’d think you were in the country. It's a great location: an easy RER trip from the airport and a block or two to the metro. The neighborhood is comfortable, lively, free of tourists, with excellent boulangerie, butcher, cheese & produce vendors just around the corner. We were met on arrival by Marie-Christine who handles the rentals for Andrea; she was super-helpful, kind and responsive when we had a problem with the Internet. Can’t recommend it highly enough. We couldn’t have been happier and look forward to returning. Thank you Andrea and Marie-Christine!

Paris Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Paris for many many years and have rented many great apartments. This is the best apartment we have found and the one we will rent for our future trips. It is in a wonderful Parisian neighborhood, with beautiful tree lined streets with all the shops, cafes and restaurants you could want. The apartment itself is very light, airy, spacious & comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and a fabulous rooftop garden terrace, perfect for dinner with friends under the Parisian sky at night. Maris-Christine with whom we made all the arrangements for the apartment and who meet us upon arrival could not have been more charming and easy to deal with. All in all a fabulous apartment to stay in and perhaps feel a little like a true Parisian for a week or two.
