Current PhD candidate, I travel back and forth between my Paris and NYC apartments for research purposes. My husband and I can usually work around your vacation schedule to best suit your needs.

Maude was fantastic in providing helpful info and made the arrangements for our stay really easy.
The apartment was great. Simple, clean and cool! Plenty of windows and lots of light. Fun views out the windows of kids "hanging out" in front of the school.
I noticed one boy was dropped off by his Mum at the same time each morning. Sometimes happy and sometimes just grunting goodbye as he slammed the car door. Slices of life in another place that you don't get in a hotel.
We found being able to casually stroll to the Jardin du Luxembourg to read the paper with a coffee and croissant in the sun, people watch, and going to lucernaire for film in the evening was fantastic.
Thankyou Maude and Ronan
p.s. I enjoyed flicking through Hitchcock/Truffaut before seeing North by Northwest at the action christine nearby.
I can't say enough about how amazing Maude and her husband were as hosts. This was my first time renting a place through airbnb and it will be very hard to top the incredible experience my friend and I had. It felt much more like we were staying at a friend's place than renting. Before and throughout the stay, Maude was very helpful and very quick to respond to emails. She asked what we liked to eat and do so that she could put together a list of recommendations for us. When we arrived, there were pages of helpful tips, info, and plenty of recommendations. Plus a delicious bottle of wine! We continued to email during the week and she was more than happy to answer any questions we had about the city or the apartment itself.
The actual apartment was adorable! It's on a very quiet street which made for pleasant evenings. It's perfect for 2 people. We loved the location. It's very close to central Paris yet still tucked into a quiet corner where you can get away from crazy/crowded areas. Most of whatever you need is within walking distance.
I give our stay vingt-sept étoiles (my favorite number) and I look forward to staying here again the next chance I get.
À la prochaine!
Great place, exceeded expectations. Fantastic, accommodating hosts!
What is great is that you can walk to pretty much everything interesting on the Left Bank, and that walk will likely take you through the fantastic Luxembourg Gardens, so what a pleasure that walk is!
Other outstanding features: comfortable bed, great water pressure in shower, bathtub is short but deep, washing machine. The place is not on a major street so it is incredibly quiet at night. Kitchen is small but everything you need. Toilet is in a separate room from the shower, which is nice.
Flat is populated with all sorts of interesting books. Big windows looking out onto the street, plenty of light. Great Wi Fi, I never lost connection once!
RER (Port Royal) is a five minute walk, so direct to CDG coming and going is a great deal! Vavin Metro station not too far, either.
Two great little cinemas (L'Arlequin and MK2 Parnasse) walking distance, and many more in Montparnasse which are also walking distance and tend more towards blockbusters.
The Bon Marche, the most remarkable food emporium I have ever walked into, is a fifteen minute walk away and a Must-Visit.
Some terrific restaurants -- Le Timbre is a standout, and Closerie des Lilas is a classic for drinks! The famous Cafes of Montparnasse (Le Dome, Le Rotonde, Le Select and Le Coupole) are a short walk away.
Very good boulangerie right across the street, as well as decent Pizza and Chinese take out places if you are in to super fast and convenient.
All in all, a great place to stay if you don't necessarily require being right in the center of some wildly happening spot. If you value your rest and don't mind a little walk here and there you can't beat this, especially for the money!
its a pleasusre to recommend Maude's wonderful apartment. It's located in a superb location, near the Luxembourg gardens and extremely well kept. The apartment is bright, very clean and comfortable.
Brilliant location and a hostess who did over and beyond whatever was needed- including leaving a cupboard full of food and pages of site-seeing recommendations. The apartment is fine for a family of 4 and for guests who aren't looking for great luxury, but rather for a real Parisienne experience in a quaint old building on the Left Bank in walking distance of almost every worthwhile site in the city and easy metro access for all the other sights.
We loved it! The apartment is lovely and is in an absolutely fabulous location. It is close to the Metro, a Velib station, shops, parks, and all the sights. In addition, Maude was a great host - she provided clear and easy instructions, left a list of nearby sights and restaurants, and checked in on us by email. We hope to stay at her place again in the future.
Maud et sa famille ont été extrêmement plaisants à accueillir. En prime, les suggestions d'amélioration de l'accueil ou restaurants à ajouter à la liste d'adresses recommandées, qu'elle a faites ont été très pertinentes.
Nous serons ravis de les accueillir à nouveau l'année prochaine, ce qui semble se dessiner.
We host Maud and her boyfriend. They where very loveliness, polite and relaxaion. They kept the apartment very well, and before left clean and organize the place. We fefinitely host them again.
Maude and her bf are the best guests. Beautiful, sweet, kind, friendly and we had a very good comunication. Thanks for leaving my place neat and tidy as you found it, that is really appreciated. Hope to see you soon in Rome!
Maude and her friends were excellent guests!! Come back anytime!!
Maude and her husband where perfect guests. They were very considerate, neat and laid back. I highly recommend them. Thank you both!
