Beautiful apartment with plenty of space - lovely character with large rooms.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Located very close to a metro station. Mr. Colinas met us upon arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. We had his e-mail and phone number along with his daughter's contact info in case we had questions. Will definitely recommend this apartment & hope to be back again.

Lovely, quiet, thoughtfully prepared and well located

  • 5 of 5

We are three couples. We have been renting houses, villas and apartments around the world for over twenty years. This lovely place is among the best. It is in a residential neighborhood just steps from the Metro and a small upscale market. There are many restaurants and boulangeries within a ten minute stroll. The building is private and secure, and the small elevator is adequate and reliable. The apartment is very clean and wonderfully decorated with comfortable furniture, artwork, and a collection of antique equipment. It has been updated but retains its turn of the century ambiance, with carved plaster ceilings, wooden floors and elegant (although not functioning) fireplaces. We enjoy shopping and cooking meals, so appreciated that the kitchen and dining room are unbelievably well supplied. Paper products, laundry soap, kitchen and bath soaps, cleaning products are all well stocked. The bed linens and towels are very good and plentiful. The bedrooms and bathrooms have excellent storage. The washer and dryer were a nice addition. The owners speak excellent English, are very prompt in responding, and thorough in explaining how everything works. I would love to return here for more time in Paris.

Our Lovely Paris Apartment for 10 Glorious Days

  • 5 of 5

We, 4 women, felt at home in this lovely 3-bedroom apartment in a Haussmann-style building in the 11th arrondissement of Paris.

* the little elevator made transporting suitcases to our apartment on the 4th floor an easy task.

* Spacious living room (salon) and dining room provided comfort for morning reading/journaling and evening quiet time after a long day of adventures. We each claimed our favorite spots in both rooms.

* 2 toilettes! One is located next to the large bathroom; the other toilette is in the bathroom of the third bedroom.

* All 3 bedrooms have windows that open to the quiet courtyard (not to Avenue de la Republique)

* Adolphe and Mathilde were prompt and gracious in all communications through the reservation process. On the day of our arrival, Mathilde showed us how to use wifi, landline, dishwasher as well as the washer and dryer (in third bedroom).

* We asked for suggestions to our first dinner; the restaurant that Mathilde recommended (Les p'tites Indecises) offered delicious food served by vibrant people... on a charming street that looks like a "movie location," said Margie in our group. We enjoyed the experience so much that Margie's sister proposed we go back for our last dinner in Paris. And we did!

* 15-minute walk to Père Lachaise and Place de la République.

* entrance to Metro station at the corner

Truly a lovely apartment. I am ready to book 2018 trip!

Thank you, Adolphe et Mathilde!

Perfect home away from home for our Paris vacation

  • 5 of 5

Being first time users, we were a little nervous, but the friendly property managers took care of everything! This clean, amazing and roomy flat sleeps up to 8, so we were able to spend ample time together without feeling like we were cramped for space. It's extremely well appointed with two full baths, a washer/dryer and full kitchen! When you look out the front door of the building, you can see the entrance to Metro line #3. The apartment is in the middle of a bustling neighborhood full of shops, restaurants and bars, but it is not disturbingly loud after dark. We would absolutely love to return to Paris and return to this lovely flat.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved working with the owners. They were very responsive to our needs. Beautifully decorated and great location. Everything was there for our needs. Beds were comfortable. The only negative was the wifi was not consistent. But we could access it at least once a day.

Best. Apartment. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better home base for our week in Paris! Located close to food shops and cafes, and just a few steps to the metro station, this apartment was a great location. Our family of 6 was more than comfortable here, and we would return in a heartbeat. Highly recommend this spot!!
