Exceptional apartment in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had the great fortune to stay in this fabulous, elegant apartment. Located in a beautiful and secure building in a great neighborhood, the Seine is a block away with the Louvre just across the river. The apartment is immaculate and decorated with beautiful art and furnishings. Ruth and Zahra (housekeeper and driver) were both wonderful and invaluable sources of advice and assistance when needed. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, as well- I highly recommend staying here, we can't wait to return!

Fabulous week in Paris !!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a wonderful week stay at this great apartment ! Total attention to all details . All began with being met early morning by the great housekeeper and then finding a charming well appointed apartment complete with fresh flowers and a bottle of champagne ! We will definitely return ! The building and the apartment felt totally secure and is the perfect left bank location . The owner was always very responsive to all my emails .

A great apartment gone bad!

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I spent a month in this apartment 3 years ago and we loved it. We just spent 6 days in the apartment and were horribly disappointed . Unfortunately, there is a large construction site across the street and as a result the apartment is no longer safe. The apartment we were in was burglarized and my jewelry and cash were stolen also the paper on which I had written all my credit card information.. There is no safe in the apartment and we had not been advised that there have been three intrusions in this building in the last three months. The building has two security doors that need to be opened before getting into the inner building. That does not seem to be a problem for those who want to burglarize apartments. It was a terrible experience and the owner Catherine was truly only concerned about herself and kept fretting that she would never be able to rent the apartment again. Having had jewelry stolen and money lost was difficult. The fact that the apartment was so easily violated left us feeling vulnerable and insecure.

Fabulous apartment, perfect location, quiet!

  • 5 of 5

You really feel like you are in old Paris at this lovely, comfortable apartment. Everything needed for staying-in entertainment is there, including guest baths, a complete kitchen, and breakfast area. The owner has decorated the apartment with comfortable furniture including antiques, and linens. The tall windows facing away from the street open to a quiet garden with trees that give privacy and a leafy green atmosphere. Excellent security. Fabulous restaurants within walking distance of a few blocks, and two Metro stations with separate lines are just a few minutes away.

This apartment cannot be bettered

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in the apartment, and that itself is a statement about the apartment and its comfort, understated elegance, and location. Kept immaculately clean by a delightful housekeeper, with an owner who pays attention to the finest details and is always responsive to questions and requests, one can find no better home from home in Paris.

Turn left as you leave the building and in five minutes you're at Eric Keyser for your croissants, sandwiches, bread. Cross the street for the finest cheeses (with recommended wine complements) at Androuet, then take a few steps towards home and stop at Maison Guyard (under-described as a Deli) and cross the street for fruit and vegetables at Au Verger d'Alice...and you have lunch or a light dinner.

Of course add another five minutes to your walk and you're at the Musée d'Orsay, or crossing the Seine (yes it's that close) and almost to the Louvre.

Don't forget the key bus stops a minute away, plus a plentiful supply of taxis, and you are set to enjoy Paris from the perfect home base.

We cannot recommend this apartment, nor its owner, more highly.
