I love good gastronomy and cooking. I will make sure that you feel confortable and have a wonderful stay in Paris !
What a gorgeous flat! My father, sister, 7 year old niece and I loved Christophe's beautiful and spacious flat, situated in an interesting part of Paris that none of us knew (my sister lived in Paris for 10 years, in the south).
Christophe was charming and helpful and kindly provided plenty of food for our breakfast, as well as the generous offer to use anything in the kitchen, asking us to replace it if it ran out. Best of all was his fantastic coffee machine - the Rolls Royce of coffee makers.
The flat itself is large for a Parisian flat. The rooms were beautifully decorated and his collection of pop art added an interesting dimension to the classical features. The lift was an experience in itself - an old fashioned cage lift with beautiful bevelled glass and wood doors and just big enough for three people. Riding in it was a constant delight for us all.
When my sister left her phone charger, Christophe mailed it her immediately. He could not have been a better host. We would not hesitate to book his wonderful apartment again.
Thank you Christophe!
We were welcomed warmly by Christopher to his apartment in the lovely Parisian neighbourhood of Batignolle. The apartment itself was very spacious for us (2 adults, 3 kids) airy and bright. It had everything we needed with well equipped kitchen, large dining room and generous sized bedrooms and bathroom with separate toilet.
The location is perfect as one gets the neighbourhood feel with local market, bakeries and restaurants while being only a short stroll to busier and commercial parts of Paris. If you are a walker, everything is within a 20 minute time frame otherwise there are two metro stations close by which will take you anywhere in Paris and beyond. The many metro stations all over Paris seem to be just hundreds of metres apart and I recommend getting a weekly ticket and hoping on and off the trains.
The charm of the apartment, and the host coupled with the space (3 bedrooms) and great location would certainly see us recommend this to friends and return ourselves.
Christophe's apartment is beautiful, clean, and bright. The best part was
the location. We were a fairly big group of people (including kids), and
felt completely safe walking to the apartment from the Metro every night at
midnight and even at 1 AM. Also, Christophe was super-accommodating. We had
missed our train from London to Paris and ended up taking the next train
and arrived really late on our first night.
The apartment is large for Paris and airy and the owner was helpful and efficient in his communications. It was easy to move around Paris from this location. Having a lift was a bonus for our luggage. Thanks for having us.
Christophe is a charming host and his apartment is wonderfully decorated and comfortable for our family of five - we didn't ever want to leave! Spacious, gracious, airy and light with a well equipped kitchen. Batignolles is a fabulous location for markets and shopping with easy access to metro.
Christophe has a charming flat, well located, close to the metro in a gorgeous neighborhood. He is a kind host and will be there to say hello and goodbye, everything we could possibly wish for. A great experience overall!
An ideal apartment rental for a family visit to Paris. The apartment was gorgeous, very clean, well equipped with everything we might have needed, and very conveniently located for quick metro access across the city. Our host went out of his way to accommodate our specific arrival and departure times, and ensured the fantastic espresso machine was fully loaded for our weekend - yum! A charming place for an authentic Paris weekend - I wouldn't hesitate to do it all over again. A++ - highly recommended.
CHARMING FAMILY FLAT IN BATIGNOLLE
Christophe Fontaine’s flat was perfect for our 3 day outing in Paris. It is conveniently located 2 blocks away from a METRO, close to a supermarket and restaurants as well as easy access by METRO to any location.
I was very pleased and thankful for Christophe's advice and help, he met me and my family at the flat and showed us around, also left some goodies in the fridge for us to eat.
He bid us farewell with croissants in the morning! Overall a great experience.
