I am french and live in London, I am a teacher, I have a 4 years old son. We like traveling but staying in quiet places.
What a great location and apartment ! I came to London with my parents (senior) and my brother (30) for a family week-end. The stay was fantastic thanks to Florence's place. It was like home, very convenient and quiet, just what we needed. The flat itself is very nicely decorated with a wooden parquet and fully equipped with everything one may need : a modern well equipped kitchen, wonderful bath room, nice living room, two nice bedrooms and a terrace (fantastic for breakfast). Good connexion with the tube and many buses in front of the flat. It is very easy to go to Saint Pancras/Eurostar station (15min). Brixton village is very nice and deserves to be visited. I would very enthusiastically recommend this place to anyone looking for a clam and vast home base in London.
Fantastique appart, placé dans un quartier très sympa bien que méconnu. L'appart en soi est super: très propre, neuf, décoré avec gout, calme. Petite terrasse fort agréable pour prendre le petit dej et l'apéro. Les deux chambres séparées et le living permettent des week-end en famille ou entre amis sans se marcher dessus... Très bien situé pour qui arrive par Eurostar et St Pancrass car direct.
Our stay in London will be always in our mind for a lot of reasons and I am sure that the hospitality of Nicole will be one of them. The apartment is very comfortable, practical and with all the necessary to live. Nicole gave us indications and information about everything in the flat and also from London (maps, guides, etc..).
The neighborhood is quiet and the train station is very near as well as the bus stop. Our little sons enjoyed a lot with the toys of Nicole's son.
We recommend this flat for your stay and live the genuine London!
.Nous avons passé 4 nuits dans l'appartement de florence et richard qui nous ont chaleureusement accueilli et qui sont charmants. Nous avons adoré la déco de l'appart et nous nous sommes tout de suite senti à l'aise à 5 ( couple et enfants adultes).Florence nous avait bien expliqué les différents moyens de se rendre dans le centre de Londres( bus métro ou train).Concernant Brixton qui est très latino jamaïcain , c'est l'occasion de manger d'excellents burritos aux alentours du marché qu'il ne faut pas (email hidden) précise qu'on ne s'est pas senti en insécurité. Au pied de l'immeuble, " johnnie's" propose des breakfast copieux et bon marché avec tous les travailleurs du coin .Bref,nous sommes très contents de notre séjour et recommandons l'appart de florence.
Response from Florence:

Ciao. Daniela
Response from Florence:
Merci beaucoup Daniela!
We have spent 4 nights in the apartment of Florence. It was perfect, especially as we have been in London with our kids (they have enjoyed the fully equipped room of her son..). Everything was as described on airbnb; however, there have been a few surprises: fresh Orange juice, some eggs and bread as well as a perfect customized London guide with all public transportation connections and shops in the surroundings and a Lot more information. All that made the day in the appartment very easy and comfortable. Many thanks Florence for all!! I can definitely recommend florence and her lovely appartment! A bientot, georg
Ce fut un plaisir de recevoir Florence et sa famille au Havre. Tout s'est très bien passé. Je la recommande vivement.
My son is great friends with Florence's son and we have become family friends. We also live in Brixton.
Florence is honest,friendly and reliable. The apartment is a really great clean, light open space, very recently decorated with great views of London. It has all you would need for an interesting and relaxing stay in London. It is in a good location between trendy Brixton and the local shops and pubs of Camberwell, with several excellent nearby parks, galleries, and good transport links to other parts of the city. I would recommend Florence and her stylish apartment for a visit to London.
I highly recommend Florence's flat. It's exactly like on the pictures. It's clean, tidy, quiet, safe. You feel so well inside that you might not go out and visit London? Buses run 24h in the street, at the door. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant. I went there and tried a lovely secret pub, it allowed kids in, has a garden. She will give you the address.
She is a great host!
We've known Florence for 10 years and she's a very reliable and friendly person. Her flat is a nice combination of modern functionality and vintage twist. Very recent construction, colorful facade, energy efficient and nice volumes help to create a very comfortable place to stay in. I would recommend her flat if you're a family/couple/group looking for a place where you could easily recreate a homy atmosphere. If you're renting only the extra room, the en-suite bathroom and its location near the main door make it very convenient and allow for privacy during your stay. Her neighbourhood is super well connected to the centre and close to green amenities, very easy.
