Wonderful home...Wonderful location...Wonderful host!
Wow! If you want a perfect location to explore all of Paris, this is the place! Christian is a fantastic host. He will take care of your stay from booking, to room configuration, to how everything functions. He will even give you a tour of the local area, so you know all of the best places to eat, explore, etc. Large family...no problem! We were able to fit our six kids with much room to spare! I highly recommend!
Eclectic place in a great spot
We stayed here in June & had a terrific time! We were a group of 7 women &1 kid, & it was a perfect setup for us. Highly recommended!
The area: It's in a very safe, business area. A convenient metro line is VERY close by (the Miromesnil stop is about a short block away), so getting around was very simple. There are several places to grab (Cojean) or enjoy (various) breakfast before setting off for the day, or you can run to a grocery store (a few options close by, check out the Space Market Epicurie for a better beer selection than some of the regular groceries) and enjoy breakfast (or any other meal) at "home." The kitchen has all the necessary things, and we loved that Christian had some tea and coffee for us!
The apartment: The layout of the apartment is wacky to be sure. When you enter the front door, you must walk through either a bathroom or a bedroom to get to the living room. And the bathroom you walk through is hilarious - a step stool is required to enter and exit the adorable shower. No matter! Everyone was happily situated in comfortable beds. Don't stress about the sofa mattresses; they were great even according to folks with back issues. The only recommendation I'd make to others is that, if you use the dining room as a bedroom, make sure the person there sleeps REALLY soundly (and won't notice people passing through to the kitchen or other bedroom) or is one of the ones who will stay up late to chat.
Did I mention that the place itself is beautiful? It is! Beautiful moldings and trim, adorable balconies, great windows and light, lovely fireplaces. Also, it was CLEAN! I could walk around barefoot and not have black bottomed feet. This has been a problem for me at other VRBO places, but not here. Pro tip: I do like to rinse my dishes and utensils before use as the prior renters clean and put those away and don't always do a great job, and there's no reasonable way for the cleaners to check on this. Oh, the elevator was nice too. We mainly used it for luggage and as momentary kid entertainment to let her skip a few steps. We all found the steps to be pretty easy.
Our host: Christian was so great! Charming & absolutely no creep factor according to all 7 women. He was VERY responsive in advance - always ready to answer questions. Upon arrival, he took part of our crew on a little walking tour of the area to point out restaurants, grocery stores, and transportation stops. And we loved that he had some stuff in the kitchen for us to use.
Very impressed with this apartment. Location, size, comfort and convenience to the Champs Elysee
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Christian's place on Avenue Matignon. There were six of us, including grandmother, so having direct elevator access to the unit was wonderful. We have stayed in apartments in Europe before and know that many apartments in Europe that are on upper floors are only accessible by stairs. Not so in this instance. We were greeted by Christian upon arrival and he was very gracious helping us with our very heavy suitcases and getting us into the apartment. He then spent 30+ minutes with us showing us all the things about the apartment that we needed to know (running the appliances, where the heating switches were, etc). The children were very happy because they connected immediately to the wifi in the apartment. Once settled, Christian then took us on a tour of the area around the apartment, where we learned where the Metro Station was, the grocery, some of his preferred restaurants, etc. Christian was a fantastic host and upon departure, he came to say good-bye and help us get our luggage downstairs as well.
The apartment is in an excellent location, almost next door to the 5-star Hotel Bristol on Avenue Matignon. It is in an 'art district' 4 blocks from the Champs-Elysees, one block from a Metro Station, near an excellent grocery and one block from Rue Saint Honore, where all the designer stores are located in Paris. There is a bus stop literally right outside the apartment building.
The apartment has plenty of space and is classic Parisian. Three bedrooms, one of which had 3 single beds which worked perfectly for our 3 children. It has 2 full bathrooms plus a separate shower facility which allowed everyone to get ready quickly so we could enjoy all that Paris has to offer. Be prepared that the mattress on the bed in the main bedroom is very close to the floor, so a little harder to get out of in the morning. The main living area and dining room are very nice with plenty of space. The apartment has plenty of internal doors which initially make it quite confusing to remember where rooms are. But this was fun and we got used to the layout of the apartment quickly.
We would return to Christian's apartment on Avenue Matignon without hesitation. If your desire is to stay near the Champs-Elysees and you love shopping, convenience and space when you are hanging out in the apartment, this is the place for you. We thank Christian for his gratiousness and helpfulness during our wonderful stay in Paris.
My family rented this apartment for 4 nights when we visited Paris as a group (7 adults). There are so many positive things to say, it's hard to know where to begin...
The apartment itself is beautiful. The layout is a bit of a maze for the first minute, but it adds to the charm of the apartment. The crown moldings are incredible - you have to remind yourself to look ahead and down when walking, and take your eyes off the ceiling! We had the 4 bedroom configuration and there was plenty of room and washroom space for everyone to be comfortable.
The location is PERFECT! We could not have asked for a better spot. We walked virtually everywhere:
Eiffel tower - 30 minutes
Louvre - 30 minutes
Sacre Coeur - would have been about 1 - 1.5 hours had we walked straight on, but we kept stopping for shops and drinks! Very nice walk though.
We also used the Metro which was located right nearby and was very easy to use.
The owner - Christian was a perfect host, above and beyond what we had experienced anywhere else (we rented houses across France and Belgium over a few weeks). Prior to booking and arrival, we had a Skype tour of the house. We were greeted with charm and laughter when we arrived at the apartment. After spending time showing us all the details of the apartment and how to work everything (including the great stereo system), he took us on a walking tour of the neighborhood to point out the best restaurants, shops, grocers, bakeries, etc. It was so nice getting some tips from a local and feeling like we had a bit of knowledge of the area.
Since returning home we haven't stopped talking about this apartment and recommending it to others. We would all certainly love to return some day.
Great location, spacious accommodations and wonderful owner!
We rented this flat for a family vacation with my wife, our 4 children (ages 7-16 years) and my parents. The owner was very personable and easy to work with from the initial contact via Skype several months ago. He helped us configure the flat to best meet our needs and spent a considerable amount of time upon arrival helping us get acclimated with the flat. He also took the time to give us a walking tour of the area. The location is wonderful, very safe and walking distance to a metro station and the Champs Elysses. We rented directly from the owner and had no difficulties whatsoever. He met us early on the morning of checkout (Sunday) so that we could make the train to London, and returned our cash deposit on the spot. Look forward to renting again on our next trip to Paris!
Outstanding service and great location!
We rented this apartment for our family vacation and we had a party of 8 arriving late in the evening. The owner met us and gave us a complete tour of the apartment and provided all of the relevant information about the property and the area. He also encouraged us to contact him if we needed anything at all. He subsequently helped us with several instances where we needed help from a native speaker and was absolutely indispensible. The apartment layout is a bit quirky, however it is very spacious, clean, functional, and comfortable. If you are looking for a five star hotel this isn't the property for you. But if you have a large group and are looking for a spacious and clean lodging with a great location and outstanding service I highly recommend this property.
