If you would like to wake up to a view of the Louvre each morning, stroll down to the boulangerie or Montorgeuil market, meander through the passage Vero-Dodat, sit and read in the Palais-Royal gardens while dipping your feet in the fountain (summer only!), walk everywhere or use the multiple transport options (metro, bus, bike, boat), this one bedroom, central, light and well appointed apartment could be for you. It can be used as one large room, or divided in two using a sliding wall, with a separate bedroom for more privacy. The 160cm sized bed can also be used as two single beds, and the two couches become single beds as well.
Renovated 4 years ago, the white, clean, light space is unrecognisable from the gloomy office it once was. Double-glazed wooden street-facing windows block out all noise, including the passing police-accompanied Banque de France money-filled trucks at 10 each morning, with the bathroom looking on to the courtyard. Surrounded by cafés, shops, art and restaurants. Two supermarkets a 2-minute walk. Wifi, free landline calls, ipod player, cable tv, dishwasher, hot-water jug, all utensils/cutlery/knives/knife sharpener(!), Limoges china plates, washing machine & detergent, nespresso machine & capsules, friendly restaurant for emergency late-night-pizza on ground level, fluffy towels & robes, lots of books, gym across the road, hairdryer, multi-country electrical adapters, sewing kit, fire extinguisher, pencils & sharpener, oven, microwave, xmas tree & decorations (December only), a children's cot & high-chair on request, a box of children's toys, monopoly, cross breezes, 'Zazie dans le métro' DVD, grapefruit soap, a list of my favourite restaurants in the neighbourhood... Good intercom security and flexible check in/check out, depending on departure of previous tenants. No security bond. Second floor - 25 steps.
I am happy (really) to welcome guests at any time of day or night.
Interaction with Guests
This apartment is only used by guests, I don't live in it. However, my home is only a 5 minute walk away if you need help.
Trust! Please let me know if something breaks so I can replace it before you leave.
No smoking in the apartment please. I hate tobacco-yellow walls.
Please don't change the locks...especially on a Saturday night (it has been done before...) Call ME if you have misplaced your key, not the locksmith. Break a window pane if necessary! It's cheaper to replace. No, call me first.
A simple 'bonjour/bonsoir' is appreciated by the neighbours. Add Madame/Monsieur if you feel up to it.
Appartement parfait pour un couple ou une famille avec deux enfants... chaleureux et très bien équipé ; situé tout près du Louvre et du quartier de l'Opéra, avec commerces et restaurants à proximité.
Très bon accueil, nous avons été enchantés par l'appart' qui a beaucoup de charme et les équipements (cafetière, grill, micro-ondes, lave-vaisselle, lave-linge, serviettes, draps).
Louise was very clear and very prompt with her messaging. The flat is absolutely at the ideal location for a foot exploration of all of the important parts of Paris and is very close to the Louvre, the Metro, the Palais Garnier etc. A grocery store is 100 metres away and there are many wonderful restaurants.
The flat is also quite clean and airy and bright, with a great shower and bathroom area and comfortable beds. The kitchen is all that one requires and access to the flat is simple and secure. There were no issues with noise. Absolutely something that I would write down for a repeat visit, the next time I go to Paris.
perfect experience, everything in apartment is beyond high quality. a very special memory is that at Wednesday or Friday you can have a dinner in apartment, go to louvre, enjoy great arts with less visitors, and then just walk for a few minutes back to the apartment at 21:45.
Estive em Paris no período de 12/02/2015 à 18/02/2015 e fiquei no apartamento da Louise.
Um apartamento bem localizado e confortável, isso sem falar na simpatia e presteza de MS. Loise que nos ajudou bastante.
Minha família gostou bastante. Indicarei sempre que possível.
I rented this apartment for a long weekend with two friends. It's right in the centre of Paris, bright and spacy given that it's a studio apartment. Louise met us even though we arrived quite late. She is lovely and warm and it was great to make her acquaintance. The flat is well stocked with towels, hairdrier, plates, cutlery, bottle opener (important), coffee machine, percolator, wifi and has an oven (which we didn't use) and a dishwasher. A perfect place for Paris and I will stay here on my next visit for sure.
Моя семья проживала в аппартаментах Louise 7 дней. В этой квартире имеется все для комфортного проживания как в течении длительного времени так и нескольких дней. Идеальное местоположение для пеших прогулок по центральным районам Парижа. Рядом находится узловая станция метро. Квартира расположена на втором этаже с окнами на юг. Шума транспорта практически не слышно. Большое спасибо Louise за предоставление своих аппартаметов туристам из всех стран мира для проживания в центре Парижа.
Great weekend in Paris. Apartment location was fantastic. So easy to get to from the airport. Louvre on its doorstep. We didn't have to get a taxi all weekend. Could walk everywhere. Very clean apartment. Would love to stay there again. Thank you very much Louise

I have been/still am a photographer, film-maker, researcher, interviewer, philosophy student, writer, book-lover, skier, cinephile, social-organiser, map-maker, renovator, sea-swimmer... I moved from Australia to Paris when I was 19, desiring adventure and photography work. I got both, and a lot more. I now have a little French family and have become a French citizen. Some of the things I love about Paris: trampolining with my children in the Tuileries; walking on the banks of the Seine; cycling during the evening as the lights come on and the cars depart; choosing a wing of the Louvre to visit each week; observing people in close proximity on the metro; the Marché d'Aligre in the 12th - rope-climbing for my children and a wide variety of food & antiques/junk; the arrival of spring and the emergence of smiling people onto sunny café terraces; the smell of sulphur in the RER at Châtelet (due to the depth of the station) and its reminder of the day I first arrived in Paris; the perfume from the mass of blooms - Daffodils, Hyacinths, Magnolias, Jonquils - in the gardens of the Palais-Royal, perfect for a picnic; the Pariscope and all the films, exhibitions and concerts it offers each week; walking through the occasional snow; and always discovering something new.
