Florence's flat is gorgeous and Florence was a wonderful hostess. Florence met us at her apartment and was a delight, showing us how everything worked and helping us with our Paris plans for our time there. The apartment was a haven - a fantastic kitchen really well equipped, comfortable beds, great selection of interesting (and different from the norm) guide books and dvds. The apartment is light, airy, clean and chic and in a great block. You are a short walk from the Marais and public transport and there's good local shopping and eating. Florence's booklet / guide to the apartment, the area and beyond probably best I've ever had at a rental property!
Florence was a kind, giving, helpful and friendly host who provided a lot of information to assist with our stay in Paris. The apartment was lovely and in a great area with lots of shops and cafes/restaurants. It was noisy at night but that could have been due to the extremely hot weather and people not being able to sleep.
Florence's apartment is a tremendous place to ensconce yourself in Paris for a few nights (or longer!). Florence greeted us like friends and was so wonderfully excited that we were to be guests in her living space and her magnificent city. The pre-trip contact was excellent; fast and detailed and included lots of information to begin planning our tourist trek of the city, in a way that would make us feel not so much like tourists! The tour of the apartment was detailed and the attention to making the apartment a really liveable space for visitors (little things like hand soap and a hand towel in the kitchen which are usually neglected as not important but are actually really low cost ways of differentiating wonderful accommodation from the ordinary). The living space is spacious and comfortable and the location puts you in the middle of the vibrant Bastille district - varied and lively while safe. Florence's recommendations for places to purchase products and to eat were well worth paying attention to! All round a very satisfying experience for our family group!
This is a beautiful apartment that successfully blends modern amenities with historic charm. Even though Florence was out of town during our stay, she provided timely responses to our emails. Her friend Antonio patiently waited for us to arrive when our flight was delayed and also arranged our early morning departure despite the national French taxi strike.
I highly recommend Florence’s lovely apartment!
Florence was awesome...couldn't imagine a more friendly, helpful host.
She accommodated our early arrival and we arranged for our luggage to be stowed there while the apartment was being prepared, allowing us to begin our adventure in Paris.
Her apartment was very well located. Cafes, groceries, restaurants and metro all within a five minute or less walking distance.
The apartment was spotless, in nice area of city, very well stocked(even had breakfast food in the fridge for the next morning for us!) and oriented to the traveler as she had multiple maps, tourist/travel books and a nifty binder with maps and travel information to assist in your days activities - it proved to be a huge asset.
Although the area was bustling with activities until late into the night or early morning, the newer windows in the sleeping areas allowed for the noise to remain outside when closed - allowing for a quiet nights rest.
Florence was very prompt, informative and lovely. She wore a huge smile and was very helpful in offering suggestions and information to make our stay great.
She was a consummate professional and a great representative of the Parisean community and would enthusastically recommend a stay with her and when we make it back, we will hopefully stay with her again.
Thanks for sharing your place with us - we had a great time in your marvelous city !!
Le logement était conforme à l'annonce
Florence était ponctuelle et nous a donné de très bonne adresse
Elle avait rempli le frigidaire pour le petit déjeuner du lendemain ce qui est une délicate attention
Booked as an incentive for my team this was a great experience. Contact with Florence went perfect, we received the most comprehensive "what to do"-list of all airbnb ever and she welcomed my team with a filled fridge for breakfast. My team described the flat as beautiful and clean - douze points for Florence!
Though I did not travel personally with the team I would recommend Florence and her apt highly. Merci!
