The hosts, Blaise and Laurent, were great and very responsive. The flat was most accurate. In some countries, townhouse implies two floors and one bedroom implies a separate room with a door. But otherwise, it was a delightful little cottage tucked in the way back of two buildings. Very quiet, as promised. The neighborhood was great and easy walk to nearly anything on the Left Bank and as far south as the Institut Pasteur.
Our stay in Blaise's adorable garden cottage was perfect. The garden was a calm oasis in the middle of Paris and a night sight to welcome us back. The location was central with many restaurants and shops in walking distance. The apartment itself had all the amenities we needed and was quite clean and charming :) I particularly was impressed with how well Blaise welcomed us into his home. He made sure that our arrival went smoothly and left us really clear instructions on how to get into the building, use the appliances, and check out of the cottage.
J'ai été très bien accueilli. Les informations fournies par mail et téléphone avant mon arrivée étaient précises et simples. L'hôte est très arrangeant. Quant à l'appartement il est atypique et agréable. Le lit est excellent. Bref, ne pas hésiter !
Excellent choix pour le séjour d’un couple ou d’une personne seule ! Le quartier est particulièrement agréable et pourvu en commerces de tous genres. L’appartement est bien situé, au calme, il est équipé de manière complète et entretenu avec grand soin. Tous les échanges avec son propriétaire montrent l’attention que celui-ci accorde au bien-être et au confort ses hôtes, de leur installation à leur départ.
This is without a doubt one of the nicest places in Paris. We truly enjoyed our stay. Quiet place in a vibrant area. Strongly recommend it! The host Blaise was fantastic and so helpful, we could not have asked for more.
Perfect experience in Paris! The apartment is as charming as the photos suggest: elegant and cozy, clean, comfortable and extremely quiet. The location is also great, since you can enjoy the neighborhood by foot and easily reach Paris main attractions. The host has been extremely kind, and the communication was very good: he even shares videos with instructions on how to get to the apartment and how use the appliances. I look forward to coming back!
Blaise made us feel very welcome with useful explanatory e-mails before we arrived and text messages when we got there. His mother popped in to make sure that all was in order.
The apartment/townhouse was quiet, comfortable and as described in a most convenient location. We would use it again when in Paris
