The flat was exactly as pictured and was very spacious (we had four people in our group). We loved the terrace and enjoyed some lovely nights out there. Cecile was very accommodating and was there to greet us when we arrived in the morning. She supplied enough towels and clean sheets for all. The neighborhood was lovely and quaint--there were many bakeries and cafes to choose from and it was super close to the train (making it very easy to travel around the city). I felt very safe and secure while staying in this flat and would recommend it to any of my friends!
Cecile was great & met is there to show us around. Was helpful if we needed anything!
Great! Great! (email hidden)ose to metro & a small store. I highly suggest the Italian restaurant down the street! Had a wonderful stay!
Alec and Cecile were marvelous hosts for a quick little stay over in Paris. Upon finding their listing I procrastinated in booking and came back to find that a minimum five day stay was required but after talking to Alec he was understanding and accepted our four day stay. Alec was super responsive and I would usually get a response back from any email correspondence from him within 2-3 hours. For having a multiple hour time zone difference it was outstanding for him to be so responsive.
The flat was in a perfect area. Not too touristy but within walking distance of several metro stations and amenities (grocery stores, restaurants, bars). Alec was not present when we dropped by but his brother-in-law met us and walked us through the flat and showed us all that we had at our disposal. The flat was a tad bit dirty but it was nothing that detracted from our stay.
I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone who is looking to be close enough to the tourist attractions but also would like to experience the true Parisian experience. Our stay in Paris was wonderful.
In a word: SUPERB. This is the first time I ever used AirBnB and it was off the charts fabulous. Alec & Cecile could not have been more gracious or more helpful. They were totally on their game and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed. The apartment is a dream-- large, comfortable, with a great kitchen and a fabulous patio. The neighborhood was all I wanted it to be-- friendly and not at all touristy. GREAT restaurants and cafes in walking distance. Metros right there. Honestly-- this was one of the best trips of my life and a BIG part of it was how great this apartment was and how easy it was to work with AirBnB. Many thanks!
We hade some wonderful days in Paris in Alec and Ceciles apartement.. We enjoyed very much the Montparnasse area with cafées and restaurants and although we participated in a conference most of the time we had a genuine experience of Paris. The flat was nice and we were very comfortable there. Thank you Cecile and Alec. Eva
Our party of 3 really enjoyed our stay at this bohemian chic apartment, the decor is just lovely. It's in a great location close to the metro lines. Alec & Cecile had compiled a helpful folder containing information about the area and local restaurants to try. Their friend Agathe was easy to communicate with when arranging check in, and greeted us upon our arrival. She was very friendly & helpful. We had a lovely stay & would highly recommend staying here.
