Etienne was a gracious and solicitous host who is an expert wine connoiseur. If you want to learn about French wines, this is your opportunity!
I know the south of Paris well but not the west, so I was especially pleased that Etienne gave me clear and accurate directions to his lovely apartment. Likewise when I left he made reservations to get me to the airport quickly and economically.
The apartment was spacious, clean, and luminous. Etienne was gracious, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and social. He was in a word, the perfect host: discrete but accessible; infinitely well-informed on a broad range of topics; patient with my French; ambitious to ensure my experience in Paris and in his elegant home were perfect.
Etienne was very hospitable and helpful. He made my stay in Paris very enjoyable. He lives in a beautiful area and very convenient for seeing the sites. I would highly recommend his place to anyone.
I really enjoyed to stay Etienne's place.
His house is really clean and spacious. Very close to the subway station. You could say a bit far from center of Paris however I really enjoyed quiet and homey automosphere around.
And Etienne helped me a lot for a good place to visit and things to do. I highly appreciate it.
I had the greatest experience in Etienne's home. The room was a lot bigger that what you can see in the pictures and very clean indeed (clean sheets and rag, nice furnitures with a big glass window and automatic folding shades overlooking a pocket garden and the street)-- the bed is big and very comfortable (queen size with new mattress) and most importantly, the smell and lighting is very conducive to a relaxing sleep after a busy day in the city. The cleanliness extends onto the whole house including the spotless toilet and bath (seperate toilet and bath, and a bathtub). The house (on 1st floor; no need for stairs) is conveniently located in one of the nicest places in the center of Paris and truly accessible to the subway (walking distance from La Muette station), buses (bus stop just across La Muette subway station), or even by walking to the famous tourist areas in Paris (walking distance to Trocadero-- Eiffel tower). The neighborhood is very quiet and secure and is near a park (not to mention that Etienne also maintains a beautiful garden for you to relax) and would take you to a very relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The best experience for me however is how Etienne and his mom welcomed me-- Etienne waited for me to arrive at night and fetched me from the nearest subway station from the airport, cooked dinner for me (a variety of crepes according to my liking), gave me wine and lemonade for refreshment (he even gave me tea which he drinks every night to relax), made me breakfast everyday (his chocolate fondant is simply the best, and he even bought me different cheeses since I mentioned that I liked cheese a lot), gave me towels and toiletries to use, and assisted me in every way possible to make my stay as comfortable as possible even without being asked. I certainly didn't feel like a stranger while I am with them and wished that I could have stayed more to have more fruitful conversations together. Etienne also speaks well in English so this was very helpful for someone who doesn't know French. I certainly made the right decision to stay here instead of a hotel since it felt way way better! I must admit that being a first-timer in airbnb, I was very worried to stay at another person's house (let alone a stranger), but Etienne certainly made my stay one of the best I've had even comparing to most of the star-rated hotels I've stayed in before. This experience was fuss-free, relaxing, personal, new, refreshing... this is one that I strongly recommend to anyone who is more than a tourist, but a traveler who likes to experience the culture, the people, and the character of the place he is visiting. This is a worthwhile experience and I hope that a lot more can get the chance to do this as well. Thanks and God bless always!...
Recently stayed at Etienne's apartment and it was a pleasure to do so. Etienne was very helpful before I arrived and was also very helpful and a perfect host when I arrived.
The apartment is in a lovely building, in a lovely part of Paris, and was very easy to get to. A two minute walk from Metro Ranelagh. The room was very spacious, with a very comfortable double bed. And the WiFi was very good also.
Etienne is a very affable guy, and very easy to get on with. Also must mention Etienne's Mother, Marie Claudette, thanks for the English/French lessons.
I would thoroughly recommend staying in this accommodation.
We had a wonderful five day stay. Etienne was very generous with his time, tea, baguettes, and crepes. We enjoyed several meals together while discussing French politics and culture. A very nice neighborhood for walking -- parks and museums are nearby. Less than 5 minutes walk from the metro and the entire city. A great place to stay if you are going to Roland Garros.
My experience with the host was simply amazing. A kind, busy, intelligent mind that loves to know people, and share ideas. Neighborhood was quiet, I had a nice, restful sleep. Etienne is a highly recommended host.
Quelle bonne chance de trouver Etienne!
My partner and I stayed with him while I was attending a conference at the VERY nearby OECD (only a 15 minute walk).
The location was central, with easy walking access to most important sites (a leisurely stroll to the Eiffel tour). Etienne made every effort for our comfort, from preparing breakfast and lunch to printing my boarding pass home.
If you are looking for a great price, charming host, and (perhaps most essentially) a bed that easily accomodates and supports two people, look no further.
