Super appartement, chouette, il y a tous qu'il faut, avec un super balcon, le quartier est charmant et la communication était parfaite. À recommander.
We stayed 3 days at Vera & Etienne 's apartment. The house is new and cozy. Very close to the center of Paris with metro. The area was very good with many shops around and supermarket.
The only problem we faced was while cooking, because the kitchen didn't have extractor fan in the kitchen so we couldn’t avoid the smell, only by opening the windows (difficult during winter time). Overall we enjoy our stay at Vera & Etienne, they are very kind and helpful, and we totally recommend the apartment.
Vera and Etienne's place was incredible! Very comfortable and accommodating to each of our needs! It's located in a great neighborhood and in a great apartment! It was clean when we arrived and it matched the pictures and description perfectly! Getting to the city center was extremely easy and convenient with a metro station right down the street! They were very helpful and made sure we made it to their place safely! They even had a friend of theirs meet us at the train station when we arrived and showed us the entire way to the apartment! They were very generous and checked in to make sure we were enjoying our stay! We definitely would recommend their place to anyone wanting to stay near Paris! Our stay was amazing thanks to Vera and Etenne's place! IF we ever travelled back to Paris, this would be the first place we would try to stay in!
Thank you guys so much for having us!
About the Host, Véra & Etienne
Originaire de Bordeaux, Etienne est doctorant en physique, en couple avec Véra, doctorante en histoire, qui vient de Paris et travaille au Centre Pompidou. Nous avons beaucoup voyagé ensemble et avons toujours été très bien accueillis, c'est aussi pour cette raison que nous souhaiterions partager cette expérience avec vous : celle de trouver un pied-à-terre charmant où on se sent tout de suite chez soi, dans un quartier à l'ambiance presque village, qui est en même temps à 10 minutes en métro du plein centre de Paris.
/ From Bordeaux, I do my PhD in Physics and so does my girlfriend (in History), who is from Paris and works also at the Centre Pompidou. We traveled a lot together and it was always a pleasure to be hosted by people in the best conditions ever, that is the reason why we would like to share this experience with you : feel like "home" in our cosy flat and also due to the very nice neighborhood, at the same time, 10 minutes far away from the very center of Paris
