"This is the third time that my wife and I have stayed in Apartment Lepic. We love both the apartment and In Beau Paris.
The apartment is in the perfect location for us: close to the Metro Abbesses for a 10 minute trip to the centre of town, Sacre Coeur, the ‘foodie’ street Rue Lepic, and many fabulous cafes and restaurants; close enough to the tourist scene yet just far enough away so as to avoid the noise and hustle of the main tourist routes; wonderful views of Paris, albeit from the master bedroom; in a narrow, quiet street; fully self-contained with a fully equipped kitchen, cooking facilities, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer internet with a VOIP phone. For us, however, the best thing is its size. The apartment is about 75 square metres with a good size main bedroom, a smallish second bedroom a good sized (by Parisian standards) eat-in kitchen and a living/dining room with two sets of double windows looking down on the cobbled street. There is a bathroom/toilet with bath and (hand held) shower over the bath. The apartment is on the first floor i.e. one level above the street/ground level. Stair access is easy, not too strenuous a climb. When we stayed in 2013 our adult kids, their partners and 2 children stayed with us in Apartment Lepic. It was a bit crowded but do-able. I’d recommend, however, two couples as a comfortable number, a couple in each bedroom. As a bonus, there is a smaller apartment is right next door, ideal for two groups of friends or families who want to stay near to each other but have separate accommodation .
In Beau Paris is an excellent organisation to book through. Jean-Noël replies quickly to any email and his booking system is well organised and easy to follow. Payment is both straightforward and safe (using PayPal). Access to the apartment is well explained. If anything goes wrong, as has happened with us, In Beau Paris is quick to respond and rectify the problem.
In short, we couldn’t be happier with “our” Paris apartment and we’d rather no-one else knew about it, but that would be unfair!!"
