Other Things to Note

Hopefully they can relax, enjoy and respect the place and love the place. Certain guide lines are written but nothing more than common sense.
Accueil parfait. L'appartement est frais et agréable en été ; il donne sur une courette arborée très typique. La femme de ménage est très accueillante et disponible. François donne son portable et répond rapidement aux e-mails.
L'appartement est central à moins d'une minute du métro, sur une ligne très pratique (centre Pompidou, Louvre, etc.). A cinq minutes à pied, il y a le quartier très pittoresque de la rue Mouffetard et de l'église Saint-Médard, avec de nombreux petits restaurants et commerces.
Excellent flat to stay at! Easily spacious for 3-4 people. Excellent access to the trains and a 15 euro cab ride to the eifel tower. I highly recommend this place for anyone who is visiting Paris.
Four of us stayed at Francois' apartment and were very happy with our accommodation.
Francois is very easy to communicate with. He answered our emails promptly and provided all the information we requested.
We were met at the apartment by Sandra who was very helpful in giving us information on restaurants,public transportation etc.
The apartment is in a great location. The subway is half a block away and there are lots of major bus routes nearby. The area is not touristy at all. You really feel like you are living with the locals. We found some very nice restaurants within easy walking distance distance as well as grocery stores,pharmacies and general shopping.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Paris and would certainly recommend Francois' apartment.
We loved staying here, the place was a little slice of quiet paradise in busy Paris. The location is great and we made use of the buses which meant we could see more of the suburbs. Metro is right at the end of the street as well as a supermarket. Check-in was easy with great instructions from Francois. The hosts were kind, friendly and helpful. Thank you so much, we will definitely stay here again!
Merci à François et son amie Sandra pour l'accueil! L'appartement est très bien situé et nous avons apprécié notre séjour!
Francois was very considerate, he always replied within a very short time to my mails and gave very accurate information. The location of the flat could not be better, 2 min. from the Metro, buses, restaurants, shops, etc. The flat was very big and served it purpose. The tv was not working properly. Wifi was excellent. We would have preferred to receive 2 keys. The flat was very untidy and not clean enough for my taste. What you see on the pictures, is not what you get. I would prefer more lights in the rooms. The main room was very dark, in the small bedroom there is only a bedside lamp.
I am sorry Sabine, that the apartment was not up to your expectations. The arrangement of the furniture has been changed and a sofa added in the living room so it may be why it did not look as the pictures. The place is fairly sparse so I am surprised that it was so untidy. The apartment is old and some features may be a little eccentric but some people found charm in it. Still I believe that for the price, location and large space it is great value for money.Nevertheless we will take into consideration your remarks and improve the lighting and the service. Thank you for helping ameliorate our presentation.
O apartamento de François é muito bem localizado, perto de tudo, bem equipado e supriu bem nossas necessidades.
Apesar de não termos nos visto pessoalmente, já que François se encontrava em viagem, ainda assim ele nos passou por e-mail todas as diretrizes de como chegar ao apartamento, e Sandra fez nosso check-in e deu dicas para alguns lugares que pretendíamos visitar.
Tivemos alguns pequenos contratempos que foram contornados no segundo dia, e François nos respondeu por e-mail a todas as nossas dúvidas.
Obrigada, François, pela hospitalidade, espero um dia poder voltar a Paris, e se um dia for ao Rio de Janeiro, me avise, ficarei feliz se puder ajudar dando indicações tambem. Grande abraço.
