Living like a Parisian

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in Nathalie's wonderful apartment. A bright and sunny apartment with plenty of room to relax, we quickly discovered the many merchants and markets within a few blocks of the apartment. The neighborhood is quiet with very few tourists... within hours you feel like a local. Within the surrounding area, there are many restaurants and cafes to explore, as well as VERY EASY access to the Metro. For our last night in Paris, we prepared a feast of vegetables and seafood we picked up at Le Marche Rue d'Aligre... magazine worthy, it was the perfect ending to an amazing stay.

What an amazing stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our crew: me, wife, four kids, wife's parents. Plenty of room for all of us. Everyone loved the apartment. Great kitchen for cooking and thus saving a couple euros versus eating out every meal. Terrific location. Easy walk to multiple metro stations. We used busses too, super easy. Many, many great places to eat nearby. Lots of grocery stores in the area too. We loved that we weren't surrounded by tourists whenever we stepped outside. Police station in the area. We felt very safe, even after dark. Nathalie and her daughter were wonderful. Friendly and so very helpful with quick responses to every email-before, during, and after our trip. Would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: I am very glad that the whole family enjoyed the stay in our flat. And you are right, the police station is a block away... I never mentionned that, but I understand it made you feel even safer in this safe part of the city. Come back soon and enjoy again cooking in the kitchen... and having great time in the restaurants around. A bientôt !

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Nathalie's beautiful apartment with my family -- 7 adults in total -- and we all loved it. It's beautiful, very open, with great views and light. I thought it was bigger than the photos made it look. The neighborhood is perfect -- it has plenty of great restaurants and shopping nearby without being touristy.

Nathalie was a great host. She communicated clearly and showed us around the apartment herself, gave us excellent restaurant recommendations, and was overall just very friendly and helpful. We loved staying here and would do it again!

Both the flat and Nathalie were wonderful. Our group of six adults had plenty of space, and could not be more pleased with the experience. The stove alone is worth a visit! Convenient to three different metro stops, with plenty of dining and shopping nearby, this is definitely an ideal place to relax and enjoy Paris. Catching one of the rare Parisian thunderstorms from the 5th floor balcony was an added bonus. I hope to make it back soon, and if so I would definitely love to stay again! I've already recommended this place to several other groups of friends.

In addition to being the consummate host, Nathalie was amazingly quick to respond to email. Even more impressive considering there was often a nine hour time difference between us.

This place is everything you are looking for.

Incredibly charming and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a lovely stay in this apartment. Our children aged 6, 4 and 2 loved their room and slept very well in the beds. The adults slept well too. The beds are comfortable and the floor fans in each room were great for white noise. There is an awesome modern walk-in closet. The large dining room table was perfect for our family meals and for playing board games. My son loved playing the beautiful antique piano. The kitchen is well-appointed and just adorable. The apartment is on the top floor of the building (essentially 6th floor), so you see rooftops all around from the windows. The neighborhood is perfect. Quiet, tree-lined streets filled with cute shops and trendy cafes. The two closest metro stops are both short walks away. The supermarket is directly downstairs, which was very, very convenient. We loved this place so much that the frozen-over freezer and the teeny tiny shower in no way detract from us giving this apartment a five star rating. The multiple 'pros' significantly outweigh these two very minor 'cons'. We would pick this place first to stay again when we return to Paris.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write the review, and explaining all you liked in the flat ! I am glad that you had good sleep on the beds and that you enjoyed cooking in the kitchen : it is the heart of the flat ! You know, you should have told me about the over frozen freezer ! I would have fixed it ! Anyway, regarding the shower in the second bathroom, you are absolutly right : it is too small. I wish to change it, it's been a while now, but the point is that it is not easy to find a good plumber in Paris, and when you find him, it is akward to organize the moment when he will work, since the flat is often booked. It will be done in november, I hope, and if not, in next january ou february. Thanks again for your detailed review, and come back soon !

The apartment was ideal. Light and airy with plenty of space for the family and convenient to a supermarket and the metro. We loved the view of the rooftops of Paris.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review ! We are very glad that you liked your stay in our flat. Yes, indeed, being in the top floor is quite nice, since you have a view on the romantic rooftops of Paris... and, the flat is quiet. Well... it is nice as well to have the elevator to get you to the 5th floor ! Hope to see you again. Nathalie
