We loved 'our' apartment which made us feel very much at home. It was small but roomy with a nice compact kitchen with everything you could want for cooking. We felt welcomed by a friend of Olivier's who was available to us by text & phone when we had any questions. The location was ideal, easy walk to the metro, fabulous restaurants,shops and galleries....a mere 2-3 blocks from the Meseu Picasso. What/where could be better?!
The place is fantastic, my wife and I stayed here as our first stop in our honeymoon, it was perfect.
Access to central Paris is extremely easy, with the local cafe's also perfect for a light meal.
If you are looking for a comfortable house in paris, this is perfect place. Truly wonderful apartment. I had an excellent stay at Olivier's apartment and met Olivier's friend Gian. Gian was very*3 nice. He was welcoming and gave me information about apartment and travel.
The apartment was clean. Very centrally located, it's easy to find. The neighborhood is wonderful for shopping and dining, and very close to metro. (5 minutes walk away!) Many thanks Gian and for a great stay.
집처럼 편안한 숙소를 찾고 있다면 여기, 완벽해요. 멋진 곳! Olivier의 친구 Gian이 체크인을 도와주었답니다. 아주 세심하고 친절해요. 집은 깨끗하고요. 여행자에게 더없이 좋은 위치랍니다. 가까운 곳에 카페와 레스토랑, 부티크가 즐비해요. 지하철역도 걸어서 5분 거리. Gian에게 정말 고마워요!
We spent 6 nights in Olivier's apartment which was like 'home away from home' - which was important to us. Like Paris, the apartment particularly shines at night with an interesting array of lighting to play with. Great location with Picasso's beautiful museum around the corner and many places to dine, drink and buy groceries. Gian welcomed us when we arrived which was comforting and later provided help with technology problems as this was new to us being our first holiday overseas for many years. Only regret is that we didn't have time to make use of the library of books but lovely to be surrounded by them. The apartment became part of our great memories of Paris. Thanks Olivier.
We recently stayed at Olivier's place and we couldn't have been happier.
The apartment is gorgeous and perfect for an authentic Parisian experience!
Gian, Olivier's friend, met us at the apartment and gave us a great intro to the apartment and area, and Oliver had provide lots of tips by email and even booked a taxi to the airport for us on our last day.
The apartment is in the best part of Paris and it was so easy to get around.
Having visited Paris several times before, it was so lovely to lose the hotels and have a local experience.
Thanks Olivier and Gian, we'll definitely be back!
