Ophélie's place is just lovely, and the location is great. You can literally see Louvre which is located one block away from the window. It's located on Saint-Honoré, where you can find tons of shopping and restaurants (walk towards west for a few minutes), and it's close to Metro (line 1), very easy to get around the city. Although Ophélie wasn't there during our stay, she was very helpful and responsive on WhatsApp. We enjoyed our stay here very much.
L'appartement est magique ! ophelie est juste parfaite et réactive .
Je retournerai chez elle , sûre !
Ophelie's place was centrally located & made for a wonderful place to be based at whilst in Paris. Had booked the place for a colleague who was travelling to Paris on work & she found it extremely convenient.
Must also say that it was wonderful coordinating with Ophelie who shared all information and did everything to ensure a comfortable stay. Looking forward to continuing the association whenever any other colleagues travel.
A wonderful nice place in a great location! Just next to Louvre! I hadn't had a change to meat Ophelie, but she gave us a lot of instructions and great tips! The apartment is exactly like expected to be, with a king size bed and a convertible sofa. Clean and well equipped with all you need for a relaxed stay in Paris. It's also located very close to Metro stations and 5 minutes walk to Les Halles Station. I really suggest a stay in her apartment.
The apartment is very nice, soft bed and the location is wonderful.
the only problem is not having a lift and are 4 floors.
Ophelie is very pleasant, attentive and gentle
I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Ophelie, but check in was seamless via housekeeping. This apartment was so adorable with a lovely view of the Louvre and easy walking distance to my work. Ophelie was so quick on communication, and the apartment is so close to many resources. I would highly recommend to anyone!
Ophélie provided the perfect accomodation for our French getaway. She gave superb instructions for finding her place and was there to greet us on the night of our arrival. From there she gave us a rundown of how everything worked and what to look out for in the local area.
We loved the location of the apartment and were able to walk to many of the famous attractions like the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame. There was also easy access to the Metro getting us anywhere else we wanted to go. With grocery stores and cafes in abundance it was like a home away from home.
The apartment was exactly as described. It was beautifully decorated and provided ample space for two people to stay. Being able to cook meals and do our washing made the trip much easier. Any time we had a question Ophélie was only an email away and always very fast with her replies.
We couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
Actress and singer since the age 5, I always cultivated a passion for my own city known around the world as the city of light. I am lucky to live in the center. I ride my motorcycle to the different sound recording studios in Paris and suburbs to do voice-overs, or sing. On Sundays after my yoga, I love to walk along the Seine, discovering hidden places and after many years am still as excited about Paris like a real tourist!
As travelling is my second nature, I will leave you the apartment and taste a bit of a real parisian life when I go globe trotting. This time, India is calling me for a very spiritual journey...
I hope you'll enjoy your stay and my place as much as I do.
