For those who prefer a Paris apartment experience to a hotel, this is a great place to be.. Convenient to public transportation, neighborhood markets and restaurants, this is as close to being a Parisian as one can be for a week or a month. In addition, with interesting artwork, the place has character. The owner lives here part, of the year which helps to maintain the warmth and comfortable feeling of a home. It is an elegant and romantic space..
The apartment is clean, comfortable, and well provisioned. The owners are easy to work with and accommodating.
New floors were installed throughout the apartment in March 2018 and we ask that our guests take particular care with suitcases, etc.
Because of fragile art works, the apartment is not suitable for small children.
