Bruno was fantastic, communication prior to arriving in Paris was prompt and detailed. The space is exactly as it appears in the pictures, a wonderful little home in Paris. Arrival was perfect, Bruno came down helped with the bags and got us settled with a nice bottle of red. There is a welcome binder for guests which is extremely comprehensive outlining local eateries and things to do. Loved the flat, the area and dealing with Bruno. As a runner had a wonderful 16 km run to the Eiffel tower and back along the right bank.
We are a family of four, two teenage boys, and Bruno's apartment was excellent for our four day trip to Paris. Bruno helped us in advance and when we arrived and then let us get on with our holiday and we never really had to speak to Bruno again until we left because everything was just right. Bruno and his family were kind and helpful when we left and looked after our bags for us and called us a taxi for our airport journey. Everything in the apartment worked; the photos live up to expectations; the beds very comfortable; constant hot water; all kitchen utensils and gadgets were to hand; and a very nice area to stay in. We really enjoyed our stay in Bruno's apartment - thank you.
Paris in springtime!!!! WOW...amazing trip...beautiful accommodations...wonderful host in Bruno. Apartment was beautiful, clean, great location and Bruno was a perfect host. We will definitely be back!!!
Superbe appartement et très bon accueil de notre hôte. Merci pour tout. Je recommande ce lieu.
About the Host, Bruno
Passionate about arts and design, I took great care of the renovation and the decoration of Maison 122. It has been a very, very long process to make the (hope so !) right decisions, select the pieces of furniture, combine everything to make sure they match and finally create a unique, warm and welcoming atmosphere that will delight you. I really hope so !
I've been living in Paris for 20+ years now and I will be more than happy to help you to make the most of your stay and provide you some good recommendations, especially about the Oberkampf area which has turned to be the most vibrant part of the city over the last few years.
Looking forward to meeting you.
