I've lived in Paris for 10 years now, and I love this city !
It was a nice warm stay in Paris with Aurélie Brillard's apartment. I would like to conclude from the following parts which might help the other people:
1. The pics Aurélie showed in is the exact description of the real apartment and it's not easy to find such relatively spacy place in Paris.
2. The apartment is located in the districts of 11 in Paris which is very convenient for public transportation to most attractions and the neighborhood is also worth visiting if time allows.
3. We didn't see Aurélie in Person but all the time she is very quick respond during our stay. And wifi, hot water and the small kitchen are all well worked.
L'appartement est très bien placé et bien organisé . Il y a une petite cuisine sympa qui vous permet de cuisiner et ainsi d'éviter trop de frais de restauration . Aurélie fut disponible au cas ou on aurait eu des questions et des explications de quoi faire dans les environs était sur la table . Franchement bonne adresse que je recommande !
Aurelie was great. She met me at her flat, showed me where everything was. She even included a welcome guide to the nearby area and breakfast! Would definitely stay again
Aurelies appartement is really nice and cosy and exactly the way you expect it to be after looking at her pictures here. Aurelie was very flexble concerning arrival and departure so it was no problem for us to arrive a bit later on a weekday because of our flight. When we arrived she was just cleaning the appartment so we could see that the sheets were all new and clean and the bathroom was just refreshed. Besides the heating and the warm water in the bathroom all works very good. In addition her appartment is very central and close to a lot of nice areas such as le Marais, le parc de Belleville or the Oberkampf area. I definitely recommend staying there and I´m happy to have chosen this one. Thanks Aurelie also for being welcome and kind.
Our stay at Aurélie's was perfect! Aurélie was an excellent host who greeted us with pasteries and recommendations of places to eat around her neighborhood. The space was comfortable and cozy, and the location near Republique was very centrally located. :)
We had a fantastic time at Aurélie's place. It is a clean and lovely little flat in a very cool area of Paris. Very convenient to nice bars and restaurants and the metro. Communication was excellent from the beginning. I recommend staying here!
Response from Aurélie:
Thank you Karen!
We had such a lovely stay in this apartment. Aurelie was a lovely host. She greeted us in the flat and showed us some lovely local places to go and eat and shop. She also left us some delicious pastries for breakfast which was a nice touch. Easy to get in contact with when we had any questions.
The apartment had everything we needed, including a great shower and comfy bed. Plenty of space for two for the three nights we stayed. Easy to get to and a great area to stay - not too busy but full of nice restaurants and bars (there is an amazing patisserie a couple of streets away - les peches nomads). We were able to walk to a lot of places we wanted to go.
Would definitely choose this flat again if we come back to Paris. Thanks Aurelie!
I stayed at Aurelie's apartment over the New Year period in December 13/January 14. Aurelie was a wonderful host, providing us with pastries on our first day, detailed information about the surrounding area, and even helping us book a restaurant for New Year's Eve. She also replied to messages quickly and efficiently, and was always easily contactable.
The apartment itself was lovely, it is located in a good area, only 5 minutes away from Republique Metro (which is itself very convenient due to the large number of lines the station serves). There were also many fine restaurants and amenities nearby (which Aurelie kindly pointed out to us). It was clean and well decorated, which made for a pleasant stay. The bed and couch were very comfortable, and the heating was more than adequate for the Parisian winter. The kitchen was also extremely well-stocked with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. The bathroom heater was also much appreciated as we did not have to step out of a hot shower into a cold bathroom.
All in all, both my girlfriend and I really enjoyed Aurelie's apartment and her hosting, and this gets our fullest recommendation. We will certainly think of it if we ever return to Paris.
Response from Aurélie:
Thank you Timothy for your kind message! You are welcome anytime ! :)
Aurelie's appartment is really nice, comfortable, clean and cosy! Moreover, it is in a very central position, only 5 minutes walking from Metro Republique, a station where many undeground lines match each others. Aurelie is very kind and she explained us everything we need to know about our stay. We remained completely satisfied :)
Perfect location for this very convenient place, with everything you need available. Not very sunny (I stayed there in December...), but absolutely quiet : no car heard ! Aurelie was a very nice guest : very quick answer, always available, and a nice welcoming breakfast in bonus ! Thanks again !
...Et pour la troisième fois, j'ai eu le plaisir d'accueillir Quentin. Je suis très heureuse d'avoir fait sa connaissance et de l'avoir reçu chez moi. Quentin est quelqu'un de "bien" et vous pouvez lui faire confiance: il fait tout pour ne pas déranger son hôte sans être en retrait, est amical et drôle et s'intéresse à vous.
"Voyageur" vivement recommandé!
Quentin, l'ami d'Aurélie, est revenu loger dans mon appartement pour quelques jours. Il est tout aussi agréable que lors de son premier séjour ici: respectueux des lieux, attentif à la vie de la maison, soucieux de ne pas perturber son hôte, autonome et participant à la fois... je le recommande!
Voyageur très agréable et respectueux de l'organisation de la maison. Voilà ce qu'est Quentin, l'ami qu'Aurélie m'a envoyé.
Aurelie es una huesped perfecta, la que todos queriamos haber.
I know Aurélie since 10 years now, we were together in Business School. Aurelie is very nice, powerful and organized. She's really reliable and someone you can trust. Her flat is a very lovely and convenient place to visit Paris as it is in a very trendy neighboorhood with a lot of public transportation commodities.
I really advice you to meet Aurélie, you won't be disappointed!
