"This apartment is located very conveniently in a small, quiet building with easy access to all Paris has to offer, by foot and public transit. We stayed with our grown son for a week and were very pleased. Contact with Tamara was always easy and response immediately by email. From the moment we arrived til we left at the end of the week, we felt well cared for. Sophie was on hand to meet us, even though we were delayed in our arrival, and explained all we needed to know about the apt and neighborhood, and Tamara checked us out quickly and with graciousness. Tamara recommended a private taxi - Robert - to us and we were in good hands from arrival at CDG to departure from Gare-de-Lyon. Robert drove us to the train and personally accompanied us inside, printed out our train tickets, and clearly explained how to locate our track for the TGV (the last time we did this on our own, years ago, it was quite confusing). This avoided any stress on our part and was much appreciated! The apartment itself has period details, but has been thoughtfully updated. Good layout, two very good bathrooms, a very functional kitchen with all the basic dishware, utensils, dishwasher, and w/d suited our needs. Everything very clean and well-maintained. We didn't cook, as many good restaurants were within an easy walk, but was nice to have a full grocery a few minutes away, Franprix, where they had all necessities, even lactose free milk. Also good to have a cafe right across the street, where we were welcomed as soon as we arrived (stays open late in the eve, but is reasonably quiet), and the bakery, ATM, and Post Office are steps away. Fresh croissants every morning at our table overlooking the street below. Air conditioning worked well and was very quiet. Because of the great convenience of the location, we were easily able to reach all the destinations we had hoped to see - and more. We always felt safe, courtyard entry is by security code, and the neighborhood is pedestrian/tourist - friendly. We were sad to leave, hope we can return again."
