I live in Paris. I love chocolate, riding my bicycle, eating tasty food and drinking nice red wine with some friends. Very interested in art, travelling, nature and foreign languages.

We just stayed at Annette's apartment and we had a fabulous stay. The location was great, a short walk to the metro which took you to the city centre in 15/20 minutes. The local area was great and the street market near the apartment on the Sunday was fabulous! A real great experience in a local Parisian neighbourhood. Annette was very helpful, arranged check in and always on hand for any queries. The flat was clean, spacious for a maximum of 3 people and brilliant wifi. We would strongly recommend this apartment!
Annette was really great, she did her best to make us feel comfortable as much as possible.
excellent séjour dans ce charmant petit appartement tout propre.
Annette's home and hospitality were top notch and all that we could have asked for. With a warm smile she helped us find our way to her apartment and kindly left out maps and recommendations in places/restaurants to check out in the neighborhood and beyond. Her apartment had big windows which let in lots of light, her bed comfortable and the place was overall very comfortable to call home for the time we were there.
Very much looking forward to coming back one day. Thanks for the great stay Annette, we had a great trip and loved your place!
Response from Annette:
Thank you so much Ashley! I often remember you, I was really happy meeting you and talking. I hope everything is going well for you. You're Welcome any other time. Best wishes Annette
We stayed at Annette's apartment for 4 days and 4 nights in the first week of July 2013. We had a nice stay. The apartment is very nice and clean. Annette has decorated the apartment extremely well with small things. She is a very creative person. From the photographs we had got an impression that it is a bit bigger, in reality it was not that big, but it was not small either. It was good. It has nice big windows which give it a very roomy and airy feel.
Our Paris arrival time was clashing with Annette's work timings, but she was kind enough to make alternative arrangements for the keys. Thank you Annette for that :)
She had given us very clear, detailed and precise instructions, so finding the apartment or getting inside was not a problem.
All other instructions about travelling, sightseeing etc which Annette gave were also very detailed, so it helped a lot.
The apartment and the building are old and hence a few things like a lock for the bathroom and toilet doors, from inside or an exhaust fan in the bathroom and toilet are missing. But they are minor. The toilet and bathroom were very clean.
The kitchen is nice and well equipped with an oven, toaster etc. The apartment also has a washing machine.
The bed in the bedroom is sufficient for 2 people and there is an extra mattress which can sleep 2 people, but it is not suitable for tall people. My brother is 6 foot tall and he had to sleep diagonally on the mattress because he couldn't fit on it.
There is a huge supermarket 350 meters from the house. You get everything there.
The nearest metro station is 500 meters from the house and it comes under zone 2 so not a problem, because usually the day ticket or single tickets are valid in zone 1 and 2. Single tickets are good for travelling and if you buy 10 together then you get them for around 13€, else it is some 1.7€ per ticket.
Annette is a nice lady and we got to meet her on the last day when we were leaving.
In the amenities section of this apartment, breakfast is ticked. I asked Annette about this and she told me that she provides few things for breakfast like tea, coffee, butter, marmalade and toasts. When we reached there, we found a small packet of bread, 2 buns and two small bottles of milk which lasted only for 1 breakfast since we were three. Nothing was provided after that. There were some bottles of marmalade in the fridge. We bought bread and milk for ourselves. Would have appreciated if these things were provided as promised.
Thank you, Annette, for letting us use your apartment. We loved experiencing daily life in your neighborhood and the opportunity to get beyond being typical tourists. One of the main features we like about Montreuil is its human scale - interesting roof tops and seeing the sky above, quiet streets and little bars and markets. We liked the natural light in the flat and the way you have filled it with interesting objects. The bed is comfortable (and there's a spare mattress for two people). The kitchen is well equipped and one flight of stairs shows off the vintage building.
We recommend visitors walk to Vincennes which adjoins Montreuil. It has a fine commercial district and tempting chic shops - more of Paris energy. We were glad, though, to get away from that at the day's end and settle unto the casual calm of Annette's flat. We're glad we've discovered it and look forward to coming again.
Superbe séjour de 4 jours dans l'appartement lumineux d'Annette qui nous a merveilleusement bien reçues, avec de bonnes adresses et de bons conseils. L'appartement est joliment décoré, les feuillages des arbres du jardin se voient depuis les fenêtres, l'immeuble a du style et l'ensemble est chaleureux. Le quartier est calme, l'appartement est proche du métro. La communication avec Annette est très facile. L'accès à internet fonctionne parfaitement. Merci Annette pour tout !
We spent 11 days in Annettes apartment which is certainly bright and comfortable. The apartment had everything that we needed. It would suit 2 people comfortable but 3 is okay too.
Transport options were only 5 - 10 minute walk away. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the Elfel Tower by metro and 8 minutes by bus to the Eurolines Bus station in Gallieni. There are couple of supermarkets close by.
Thanks Annette for the use of your apartment.
