  • Realmente una estadía genial. Estuve con mi mujer y dos hijas en este precioso lugar, el cual es más lindo aun que en las fotos. Todo impecable, cómodo, de excelente gusto, con cantidad de elementos útiles para una estadía inmejorable. La verdad es que nos hemos sentido como en casa, y eso es más que importante!

    La ubicación es perfecta, en un barrio tranquilo y con acceso rápido a todos los medios de transporte.

    Martine se mantuvo comunicada desde nuestra primer pregunta previa a la reserva, hasta el último dia. Ella es muy cordial y atenta con sus huéspedes. Sonia, quien se encarga de recibirte y está a disposición por cualquier cuestión, es realmente muy atenta, de una atención suprema.

    Que más decir que no se haya escrito ya en otras evaluaciones, realmente quien quiera ir a Paris, debería tener muy en cuenta este departamento sin duda alguna, definitivamente cuando vuela a esta impresionante ciudad, ya se donde voy a hospedarme.

    Gracias Martine y Sonia por todo !!

  • Estamos muy agradecidos por la atención recibida, el apartamento de muy buen nivel y su ubicación inmejorable, pero fue para nosotros muy importante el trato y colaboración de su ama de llaves Sonia, un agradecimiento especial para ella. Flia. Wajnerman desde Cordoba ( Argentina).

  • The experience with Martine and Sonia, who assisted, was excellent. The apartment is just as described, and the neighborhood would be difficult to improve upon. For a central location in the 7th, convenient to the major museums, shops, bakeries, stores and great walking along the river and elsewhere, it would be hard to beat.

  • Martine apartment is elegant and welcoming it was also very clean and comfortable. Loved the eclectic art work, we felt privileged to stay there. Martine was always available via email from the week before we arrived with directions and information. The location is ideal quiet and restful but has everything one needs, located nearby plus the apartment has a well-equipped kitchen for those who want to cook. We enjoyed the experience and wished we could have stayed longer but we do hope to return. Special thanks to Sonya who was so kind and helpful. We would highly recommend this apartment 5 stars.

  • The lead up to our arrival in Paris, Martine emailed me with directions to her apartment and full instructions, her email also contained detailed descriptions of places to eat, shop and transportation information..
    Upon arrival Sonya (caretaker) met us, she was a delightful lady and very helpful.

    I loved Martine's apartment, stylish and very roomy as well as quiet and peaceful at night.The apartment is beautifully positioned for all activities in Paris . Close to transport and easy to locate.
    If you didn't wish to eat out at night the kitchen was fully equipped.
    The linen and towels were very clean and lovely quality.

    Many thanks to Martine and Sonya for making our stay in Paris a great one.

  • First and most importantly, I was satisfied with the overall experience of staying in Martine's apartment. The location was exceptional, and it was extremely clean. These were the two most important factors to me. However, that said, the main bedroom had a ceiling and walls that were cracked. Martine did advise me of that a couple of days before the trip about a leak that occurred sometime ago, but it should have been repaired beforehand. The bed was more of a full size than a queen, and the mattress severely sagged in the middle. The furnishings are okay and functional, but some are in need of minor repairs. The information and utensils provided were good. Overall, I was satisfied and would certainly stay again at this apartment provided that the deficiencies noted above, i.e. mattress and ceiling/wall repair, were adequately addressed.

  • Martine's flat was an excellent base for our two weeks in Paris. Well located, we were an easy walking distance to many attractions and had several Metro stations to chose from. the local shops had everything we needed. Martine gave us helpful tips about the local area. The flat itself was comfortable for the three of us and had all the comforts of home. we will miss our morning walks to the bakery!

    April 2014
  • Excellent location, all within walking distances to the major attractions. If you interested in antiques or art, there are over 100 gallery's and shops all within a few blocks. Also there is no shortage of coffee shops, almost on every street corner.

  • Our stay in Martine's cozy apartment was perfect-- I only wish we had a few more days. Sonia was lovely and it almost felt like we were visiting our Parisian relatives! All the information about the apartment is available as well as directions and recommendations about things to do, places to eat. If we are lucky enough to return to Paris one day we would certainly stay there again! Many thanks!
