thank you for your beautiful flat; we were very glad to stay in "our" apartment. we would love to come back again.
Perfect place to explore Paris from. Really roomy apartment was excellent for the family. Everything was so easy, from getting the keys to leaving again. Highly recommend.
Our family of 5 stayed for 2 nights in Olivia's apartment in Aug 2013. It was clean and the photos did it justice. It is very close to the Metro so that was convenient. We did find that the patisserie that Olivia recommended to us was closed for holidays so that was disappointing, but there were lots of other places to buy bread and other supplies. Thanks Olivia for the art gallery advice we thoroughly enjoyed the Centre Georges Pompidou and also the Musee D'Orsay! We found the apartment OK from the Gare du Nord, actually a man offered to guide us from there as we must have looked pretty obviously confused as to which direction to head in. We did give him 10 Euros and he seemed happy with that. It took 10 mins and we made it fine with all of our luggage. The instructions for getting into the building and the apartment were good and the maid Loubna was lovely and answered all of our questions. Olivia also answered all of our questions in the weeks leading up to our stay. We loved how the apartment was decorated and would stay here again if we came to Paris. Thanks Olivia!
We ( a german-french couple) spent a little more than 2 month at Olivias flat. The stay was perfect! Olivia is a very friendly, well organized and uncomplicated host. Her maid Loubna is lovely, fast, flexible and very helpful. The flat is gorgeous, huge and well equipped. Nathalie fell in love with the kitchen right away and we both felt at home instantly. The location of the historic house is absolutely perfect. Train (gare de lést), Metro, bus, velib (bicycles), autolib (carsharing) as well as Avis car rental are all within a few steps. Canal St. Martin is just around the corner. Daily shopping is easy in the neighbourhood and a covered market is only 10 minutes away. The appartement is bright, airy and quiet with a nice view. You can enjoy the sunset in the kitchen and sunrise through the living room windows (if you get up this early). We would come back anytime and recommend Olivias flat to anyone who wants to spend a great stay in a comfortable, uncomplicated and authentic Paris appartement.
The apartment of Olivia is great, clean, organized and very well placed! Central with all facilities and metro just few meters from the house.
I would highly advise a stay there for Paris visit.
The flat is incredibly spacious - easily accomodated 6 people. It is also extremely beautiful - a real pleasure to return to in the evening. Olivia was a very helpful and accomodating host.
Just came back from Paris and this lovely appartement. It´s unbelievably amazing, so beautiful interior design! Would always go there again. Best what you can do :). Thaaaaaaank you very much!
What a fabulous flat! Olivia's flat is large, light, airy and very unique. We (5 adults) stayed there and really felt at home. The flat is well located and convenient (five mins walk to a taxi stand and closer for the Metro). Olivia also passed on some great local recommendations. I would return again!
We had a great stay at the apartment. There were 5 of us. The girls weren't keen to stay in the bunk double bed so we used the sofa instead. The flat is easy to walk to from the station and we felt the area was fine, not unsafe like some other reviews. Well stocked supermarkets and wine shop nearby. Taxis passing by outside usually and only €15 to the centre and main tourist parts. The flat had all you need for your stay and was well furnished bright and airy and looked lovely. The shower in the bathroom sprayed in odd directions but wasn't a major problem. We met the cleaner at the end and she was lovely also. Would stay here again in a small group. Lovely flat.
