Decouvrir le monde c'est connaitre la chance de vivre chez soi
Pascal was very kind and quickly responded to our inquiries. I would definitely recommend the apartment: it was clean, the bed is very confortable (it's a real bed and not a sofa bed - which for us makes a difference), it has a has a fully equipped kitchen if you need and it's also nearby several restaurants and supermarkets (carrefour, monoprix, casino, piccard -frozen food).
It has a very lovely terrace with sun in the morning, you could either have breakfast or dinner outside on days you feel more like taking it slow. There is another smaller balcony on the other side of the living room (yes, one in each side!) the sun on this one is in the afternoon, just adorable!
As to the neighborhood, for us it couldn't have been better. You have 4 lines of metro nearby and different bike stations (Velib) as well. Voltaire metro is the closest, but still, if you don't feel like making lots of connections you can walk for about 5-7 minutes to/from Bastille stations. Not only you'll have all the facilities I mentioned but you'll be in a very quiet apartment.
I did get a chance to meet the couple and we had a lovely afternoon coffee in Paris. These are very, very nice people. I would certainly stay there again and I do hope to see them again in Paris or Sao Paulo. It was an adorable surprise to rent an apartment and end up meeting such nice people!
Pascal stayed in my apartment and had an exemplary conduct. He is very polite, helpful and responsable. Everything was perfectly organized. A great guest, i recomend...
