Né à Paris, j'adore ma ville et je connais très bien le quartier. Je serai ravi de vous faire partager mes bonnes adresses!
Francois was helpful and left good directions and plans to leave keys to get into his place. Great location . Massive flat and great for a couple as it has well equipped kitchen. Shower is strong and hot water plentiful. Cosy place.
Staying at Francois-Xavier's apartment was wonerful. It is beautiful, well-equipped, and incredibly well located. Francois-Xavier was welcoming and helpful in everything we needed. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to stay in the heart of Paris.
A fantastic flat in a great location. Francois-Xavier was a wonderful host, worked with our schedule even though we had a very late arrival. The flat is very well equipped with everything you could need. Very spacious and well cared for. Loved being so close to the Louvre. If you are visiting Paris, you must stay here!
Positives... Great location just behind the louvre, comfortable bed, clean and tidy, more than enough space and Francois Xavier was very friendly and helpful. He even met us at the train station to guide us to the apartment and carried one of our large bags up the stairs. Also some great breakfast stuff waiting for us.
Negatives... the stairs, we knew there wasnt an elevator and it wasn't a big issue for us (hence 5 stars) but if you are not great with stairs - 6 flights, especially after walking around Paris then this may not be for you. Not really a negative but a warning.
Overall an excellent place, very reasonably priced for a great apartment in an unbeatable spot. Would happily return and recommend to all.
We stayed at the appartment in June 2012. François-Xavier was accurate and friendly. Location of tha gallery is fantastic, it is easy to get anywhere in the centre of Paris. Appartment is clean and cosy and you can easily feel the atmosphere of this amazing city. There's absolutely everything you might need to feel yourself at home. It was very pleasant to find comprehensive information about the city, shops, cafe, etc. (maps and guidebooks) and how to use the equipment at the the appartment. Definitely, we would be glad to come back someday.
Francois-Xavier's place was extremely clean and exactly as mentioned in the listing. He was also a gracious and courteous host and was always available if needed. I would definitely stay here again.
Wow! I wanted to move in straight away. Francois-Xavier was a perfect gentleman, understanding of my terrible communication and lateness. The apartment is in a fantastic location, filled with interesting books and all that a couple (or single...alas) would need for a wonderful trip to Paris. Yeah, so it's up six flights of stairs but this is Paris, stairs everywhere! I would absolutely reccommend staying here. Thanks again.
Such a fabulous stay in Paris, truly loved every second. The apartment was super, more than perfect - great layout, spacious and cool design. Francois, Thankyou for being so accommodating - the wine you left, the list of your favourite nearby places, the fast response to emails and texts... It really was fab. The stairs to the top floor was a little daunting at first but with the amount of cheese and wine we were eating and drinking it was probably a good thing! And its such a beautiful building, why ruin it with a lift. We will have no hesitation in recommending this place to stay in the beautiful city. Many thanks.
Francois was a great host and his apartment was simply amazing. He has such great taste with decorating his apartment that you feel as if you're in the home of someone with a great eye for detail and creativity. It's filled with various vintage posters and furniture that really enhanced our stay in Paris. I even took photos for future reference when I decorate my own apartment. In addition, the apartment is huge. After each day in Paris, we couldn't wait to go back to home to relax in the apartment. Although I was initially wary of living on the 6th floor of a walk-up, the size of the apartment and its beautiful furnishings more than made up for it. Furthermore, Francois even helped us carry some of our luggage upstairs when we first arrived. My only regret is that we couldn't spend more time with Francois since he was such a gracious host. He even left us a bottle of wine to welcome us and invited us to try out all the exquisite teas that he stocked in his kitchen. We will most definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodations in Paris. Location is extremely convenient and within walking distance to the train and most other major attractions. My only regret is that we couldn't have stayed there longer and gotten to know Francois better. We will definitely save that for the next time we are back in Paris!
