Julia's husband met me at the apartment and let me in to explain how everything worked! He made sure that I knew how to get in touch with him and Julia if I needed something. The apartment was exactly what I needed for my last night in Paris, close to food, shopping and the subway! The area is very hilly but it didn't bother me. I loved the sweet cat in the courtyard and the sofa bed was so comfortable I fell asleep immediately.
Julia is very friendly. She has a nice printout for all point of interests (like supermarket, museum, etc). The location is unbeatable, close to everything tourist and yet very quite! On foot you will not miss anything Montmatre has to offer! The room itself is clean, functional and the sofa bed is also comfy. The stair is a little old so if you have a huge suitcase it may be a problem...Overall, it's great!
The location was convenient, just 3 min walk from the metro and short walking distance to attraction such as the Sacre-coeur Basilica & the Moulin Rouge. Julia's apartment is clean and cosy, It is a perfect apartment for the 2 of us and we can find everything we need in this apartment. We enjoyed our stay very much.
