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 !!
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!
Florence's apartment is on a lovely street, with plenty of quirky shops, cafes and high-end boutiques. It's buzzy in the evening but not too noisy, and is close to the centre of town with good transport links. The apartment itself was characterful, spotlessly clean and bright, with plenty of space for our family of four. The kitchen is small but stocked with everything you could possibly need. Florence was very welcoming and friendly, and provided a huge amount of information about the local area (best shops, restaurants etc) and was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We'd love to stay here again next time we visit Paris.
Florence a été très accueillante et disponible. Notre arrivée était bien préparée, Florence avait même acheté pour nous de quoi petit-déjeuner le lendemain matin! L'appartement est beau et spacieux, très propre et bien tenu. Le quartier est super, très bien placé pour un court weekend à Paris. Florence nous a aussi donné beaucoup de bonnes d'adresses dans le quartier.
On y reviendra sûrement!
I stayed a week in Florence's apartment in February.
I was welcomed by Antonio who came really at 7.15 am since my long haul flight had landed earlier! Perfect service and lots of nice tips and advice on the neighborhood, restaurants etc...
I loved the area although I did not have enough time to explore!
The apartment is very spacious, luminous, beds are very comfortable.
I loved the fact that Florence and Massimo were foodies, there was every utensils you needed to cook!
Would definitely stay there again.
My colleague and I lived in Florence and Massimo's beautiful apartment for three weeks while we were teaching in Paris and I never want to stay anywhere else in Paris! The apartment is clean, luminous, beautifully decorated and in a wonderful centrally located neighborhood with amazing shops, restaurants, and close to the Richard Lenoir farmer's market. Florence and Massimo were so kind and welcoming and only made our stay all the more lovely. I can't wait to come back next year, stay in such a lovely flat, and see them again.
