J'ai vécu dans ce quartier pendant des années, il est vraiment très agréable et à portée de tout.
In this place the neighbors like it quiet, so I would like you to respect that ( especially from (phone number hidden)). That means no partying in the apartment.
For the respect of the environment, please don't heat with open windows. and leave the heaters on minimum when you're away.
If you smoke, it's better on the balcony for respect of the next guest. Please use the ashtray on the window. We like to leave the yard clean.
And most important : enjoy your stay !
Lovely appartment, good connectivity by Metro. Sophie is friendly and helpful. The appartment has lots of stairs, so you need to have good legs. Very romantic place, we were happy we staid there.
Lejligheden var dejlig og lys, præcis som på billederne. Og der var fin plads til min familie på fem. Sophie var sød, nem og imødekommende at tale med - og fleksibel. Varm anbefaling herfra.
Sophie was wonderful!! She gave fantastic directions to the flat and have great recommendations on local places to eat near by. She even was so kind to allow my brother and his girlfriend to stay another night due to a bad arrangement with someone else on a different site. There were 5 of us that stayed and we all had plenty of room and space to move about and be comfortable!! It was a very relaxing stay and id recommend Sophie to anyone !!
A sample of real parisian life!
A 10min walk from Alexander Dumas station, through a real Parisian neighborhood. The building is on the right side of the street, and looks kike early 20th cent building. It was a LONG walk up - total of 6 floors, no elevator and thru a winding staircase.
A lot of restaurants around the area, as well as a good sized supermarket.
We were able to use her kitchen well as well as the washing machine.
Was not able to meet Sophie nor her caretaker. Tried to call when we were at the building trying to get in, but the phone she gave was not answering. Left a message but never had a call back.
The apartment is actually in use by the owner, I think, and there were a lot of books on the floor and the furnitures looked old already. In no way does it look like in the pictures she posted.
But we were given clean towels to use, and the bed covers were clean (I hope so).
Was not able to use the TV, no instructions, given. Able to use thw wifi after deciphering on our own the password. No thanks to the owner bor the caretaker.
A lot of night time noise came from the apartment above and besides Sophies apartment.
The place was ok since its our family's first time to Paris...but surely we woludn't come back.
We have not seen Sophie but we talked with telephone. Sophie was very kind and friendly. The apartment is just as it seems in the pictures. It is comfortable, clean and modern. We had a really nice stay in Paris and I recommand it !
About the Host, Sophie
I am born in Paris, and I still love it so much. In paris everything is possible. There is always something to do, and new people to meet. A few metro stations away you find a new ambiance and a different population. You feel like traveling every day. I decided to live in this area because this is the real Paris for me, a melting pot with all kinds of populations, lots of artists and openminded people. The area is like a village and you're not anonymous, like often in big cites. I love this place because it is one of the more artistic in Paris, and you have a lot of nice restaurants, and good quality shops. I go to the big open grocery market every week, and I speak with my neighboors when I meet them. Even if you stay at home doing nothing, you know that it is all there waiting for you a few stations away. Now I decided to give you the opportunity to live the real Paris experience. Welcome !
