The ideal way to experience Paris
This was a romantic trip for the two of us. We chose Mr. Durand's charming apartment because, primarily, the view, and it was just as amazing as anticipated. He met us the morning of our arrival at our desired time, not like other apartment owners or managers who insist on you meeting them at their convenience. We were shown all the specifics of making ourselves at home in his sanctuary, and given time to ask questions about the different open-air markets and where to get different food items for our stay. He truly made us feel at ease and welcomed. For a couple, the larger of the two bedrooms worked well but if we were with others and wanted privacy, the fact that the door does not close might be an issue...or just use the slightly smaller bedroom which has a true door. Both beds were comfortable and the ideal firmness for our backs.The extra space heater and duvet made for a cozy night sleep in the chilly November evenings. I personally like having a separate room for the toilet from the bathroom and was fine with the tub-shower space but again, for some it might not be to their preference. We did not use the washing machine but did the stove and all appliances worked fine. But...being able to come back "home" after exploring Paris to a quiet and safe neighborhood, to eat a small meal or enjoy a glass of wine while watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle over the rooftops every hour...ah, that is what made this stay the best!
Unusual and fun.
Manuel's apartment is unique. The apartment itself is quite small (though two bedrooms), but the terrace/roof garden is amazing! A pine tree, olive tree with olives, bamboo, and a variety of other beautiful plantings. And of course the view over rooftops and to the Eiffel Tower in the distance. There are lots of books, posters, etc. all over the apartment. Although there was lots of stuff, the apartment was clean and comfortable. Manuel was very responsive, great communicator, flexible about arrival and departure. The pictures are quite accurate, so you know what to expect. Good transportation links nearby (metro and bus), so even though you're not in the center, it's easily accessible.
Charming Paris Apartment with amazing views and gorgeous balcony garden .
Enjoyed our 10 day stay very much . I was in Paris for work and it was so nice to come “ home” every night to this little oasis . The balcony garden is stunning , perfect location to monoprix and many transit options . Parisian neighborhood so your not in the middle of touristy mayhem . Charming host , eclectic music selection and lots of books ( in French ) . I travel to Paris several times per year and would definitely book again . Merci beaucoup , Manuel
Great flat in a great location
We loved this place! We stayed for 2 weeks in April. The apartment was cozy and comfortable. Having the Large terrace was very nice and we got to watch all the plants come to life as the spring began. Manuel was very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The location was very convenient with multiple supermarkets nearby and easy metro access. I would definitely recommend this listing to friends.
An interesting place and person
The apartment reflected the warm and literate owner, a charming man, a writer, an actor, and a plant lover whose charming patio presents a
panorama that included the Eiffel Tower and the Pantheon.
This apartment in cozy and romantic. The terrace is magical. We loved staying here and Manuel was so kind and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!
