Staying at Barbara's studio for seven days in August was a wonderful experience. Barbara's instructions of how to reach the apartment were very clear and easy to follow. Nick (Barbara's son) was very friendly and accommodating. The neighbourhood was lovely, with lots of great places to eat and a friendly, positive atmosphere (especially in the evening). The kitchen was well equipped and the balcony was a fantastic space to relax after a busy day exploring Paris. I highly recommend that anyone looking for a place to stay in Paris get in contact with Barbara.
The house was in good place and there was everything we need like supermarket or patisserie. The host was nice. We didnt have the chance to meet with barbara in person but everything went right. Totally recommended.
We visited Paris for our wedding anniversary trip and Barbara’s proved to be the perfect base. Comfortable, clean & convenient.
Communication prior to arrival was good and we were provided with detailed instructions which led us to the door just 45 mins after arriving on the Eurostar. Barbara met us at the apartment, gave an introduction to the local area and pointed out key areas on the map.
She had also provided a welcome bottle of wine and some fruit which was a lovely touch.
The balcony proved to be a lovely place to unwind after a day seeing the magnificent sights of Paris and there were several local restaurants to choose from. We dined locally every night and returned to one for a second evening. The local patisserie does indeed do fantastic croissants and pastries but whether they are the best in Paris… well there are a few thousand others yet to try!
Metros are within easy walking but don’t forget the buses. They are easy to use and you see so much more. We even took one (only 150m from the apartment) to go direct to Gar du Nord when we were leaving.
Paris is also great for walking and you get a better appreciation when you amble along past all the lovely shops and sights. The area felt very safe and it’s so easy to walk to Bastille and it’s many attractions from this great location – and then perhaps onwards to the centre of town
We enjoyed our stay of 6 days in Barbaras well equipped apartment with it's typical french charme. Best place to have breakfast and relax after the hot summer days in Paris was the spacios balkony. The location in a quiet, authentic neighborhood is ideal: Short walk to Metro, lots of nice restaurants and bars around the corner.
Thank you Barbara, we will definitely come again!
We've been in a Barbara's studio for 5 days and the experience was wonderful! The studio is well equipped and you can also find iron, hairdryer and things like coffee, thea, fruits and a bottle of wine. The balcony is full of plants and flowers, a perfect place to relax and to have breakfast :)Unfortunately we did't have anough time to taste the wine! The neighborhood is fantastic, you have 2 metro in 5 minutes on walk and lots of good restaurant, bistrot, bakery. Just 15 minutes on walk to place de la Bastille and there you can find lots of shop. The neighborhood is tipical french. Ultimately I recommend Barbara's studio and I hope I'll come back!!!
Vi blev godt modtaget med en instruktion af restaurants og supermarker i området. Lejligheden var nøjagtig som beskrevet. En dejlig lejlighed med et køkken med alt med hvad man behøver, samt en utrolig dejlig altan. Lejligheden er beliggende i et roligt og sikkert område og fra lejligheden kan man nemt gå til 2 - 3 Metrolinjer. Hvis man ønsker at leje bycykler, Paris Velib, er disse få meter fra lejligheden.
Barbara og lejligheden kan meget anbefales.
We definitely recommend Barbara's house! She is very nice and the house have everything we need, very close to Metro, two supermarket just few mins, many restaurants around.
We really enjoy here:)
Barbara was there to welcome us on our arrival. She was only too happy to assist us with the questions we had and took the time to explain and show us on the map what metro lines to use and the proximity of super markets in the area and other amenities we may need during our stay. As we were totally unfamiliar with Paris Barbara was extremely helpful in the advice she gave us. A very appreciative touch was a bottle of wine and a selection of fruit left for us to enjoy. Barbara also gave us recommendations re restaurants in the area and other points of interest that made our stay that much more enjoyable.
We already miss this apartment! My wife and I were there a couple weeks ago and it was sunny, quiet, beautifully decorated and spacious - just as described. Barbara has almost everything you could need in there - resources for us tourists (guide books, maps, et cetera), a big collection of fresh linens and towels, and even some treats that she was nice enough to leave!
The area was great; lots of fantastic things such as bakeries, restaurants, bars and a good grocery store close by as well. When we met Barbara at the apartment, she did a wonderful job giving us directions and recommendations - all of which were great! And the Metro is super close too - which is a big plus of course!
Our favourite part was the balcony; there were beautiful flowers, sun and comfortable seating out there, as well as the view which is classically Parisian.
We definitely recommend this place! And Barbara is such a great host.
We enjoyed our stay in Barbara's apartment. It is quite roomy for 2 and very well equipped with all you need. The location is great- near shops, restaurants and about 3 minutes from the metro. But the real bonus is the terrace/balcony where you can sit and relax after a hard day on the tourist trail. Barbara is very helpful and gives cleardirections, and was there to meet us desite our late arrival.
Barbara was a great guest, really easy to communicate with and very respectful of all house rules. She left the house in excellent condition! It was a pleasure to host her and her friend!
Very good guests. I recommend them 100% They took care of my apartment like it was them. Always welcome, I wish you all the best. Greetings
is very nice and polite person. I would welcome her anytime again.
I guess there is only one word that can describe Barbara and her family "PERFECTION" Barbara is sweet, charming..... When they left the house was perfect, tidy, clean,as I have said, perfect.
I would really recommend any one to host her in their house, she is the perfect guest.
We would love to see you in Paris. Please do contact us if and when you come! And I am sorry I didn't remember your lovely name, Ainhoa.
It was very nice to have Barbara and her husband as a guest in my apartment. Very friendly, easy to communicate with and joyful people that follow their dreams!
Petite famille au contact très agréable et respectueuse de la location ; il faut dire que Barbara est elle-même propriétaire d'un appartement mis en location et donc elle sait respecter des affaires des autres. J'espère les recevoir à nouveau un jour.
Very nice with easy communication and friendly relationship, it was a real pleasure to host Barbara and Steve. . I higly recommand them.
Des hôtes charmants, agréables et sympathiques.
J'ai été contente de les accueillir pour quelques jours et je pense devenir leur hôte lorsque j'irais à Paris
What a fantastic time we had with Barbara and her friends as guests. We had fun offering them suggestions of things to see and do in the area. With their command of the french language they hardly needed us to get by but were sweet to listen to our list of favorite places to visit.
They left the apartment in great order and we were sad to see them go. Barbara and friends treated our home as their own and we were extremely comfortable with them throughout their stay.
With their knowledge of NY and Paris, Frank was especially happy! Old home week!
I highly recommend them to any one else to have them as a guest in your home. I hope that we are always so blessed with this quality of guest and that they return again soon.
We wish them a Bon Voyage and hope to rent your apartment in Paris in the near future. Judy & Frank
Had a pleasant stay in her studio.Very cozy and conveniently located. Balcony was the cherry on top. Enjoyed the little hidden park around the corner.. Very lively neighborhood.
Charming American lady that speaks English and French, she was really helpful recommending places to eat in the neighborhood. Great croissant just down the street !
