Life-enthusiast and food-lover - I love my city, and I'm always glad to share my favorite Parisian spots and tips with my guests.
Welcome to Montmartre and Le Marais!
Julia's place was fantastic! I can't say enough good things about the apartment. First, Julia's mother, Anne, met us at the apartment to show us around and give us the keys. She was very friendly and helpful, and was very kind to be flexible about our check-in time. The apartment is in a great location- there is a metro stop on the M8 line (St. Sebastien-Froissart) just 10 seconds walk from the front door. This is a major metro line and got us to all the sites we wanted to see quickly. The apartment is clean, quiet, and so thoughtfully equipped... it's got everything you need: a clothes washer, wine opener, full sets of dishes and utensils, cookware, a hair dryer, maps of the city, many convenient outlets... Anne even left us a couple of plug adapters so we could use our American electronics :). The bed is comfortable, the space is big, and we really didn't want to leave! There is also a really yummy creperie called Briezh Cafe just a few minutes from the apartment! The neighborhood is great. We would absolutely stay here again... two big thumbs up!
I stayed in this Charming Flat for 10 days with my 2 daughters 10 and 14. It was perfect! by the end of our stay we really felt we were coming 'home' at the end of each day . Anne was there to greet us on our arrival, and to show us how everything worked. She was very nice, and I was very impressed with the promptness and helpfulness of communication prior to our arrival. It was very clean, and had everything we needed. I cooked a meal or 2 ( when we were not out eating the wonderful foods of all the cafes and markets nearby ) The kitchen is fully equipped , and the washing machine worked perfectly. It was very quiet, and I felt very safe walking back there in the evenings. It was very easy to walk to the metro ( 1 minute) and the wonderful boulangerie on the corner. There is a larger supermarket right across the street, that was great when we needed milk etc.The beds were very comfortable, and clean. wifi worked great.The shower worked very well, lots of pressure and hot water. I will definitely stay here on our next visit , and have recommended it to friends already. Merci Anne :)
Great, clean, and very spacious!
El apartamento está arreglado con mucho gusto y adecuado para satisdacer de la mejor manera las necesidades básicas de quien lo ocupe. Además tiene una excelente ubicación, con fácil acceso a transportr, comidas, restaurantes y lugares de interés ubicados en el centro.
I absolutely loved this place. It was just right for my mom and sister. Well appointed and tasteful decor. Very clean and well kept. Walking distance to centre Pompidou ... Most of all Julia's mom was right in time to hand us the keys. We really enjoyed our stay and would totally come back and stay again on our next visit to Paris!
Perfectly lovely and charming apartment in just the right location between Marais and Bastille. Exactly as pictured, super clean and well outfitted. The sleep sofa was extremely comfortable which was a bit of a surprise as I expected it to be a bit rough, but was great and had nice crisp linens. Arrival was great with Anne's husband coming to open up. Overall a heat experience.
We had the most wonderful time in Paris staying in Julia's apartment. This was our first experience with Air BnB and we couldn't recommend it enough.
The communication before the trip was great, always with a fast response from Anne including a list of restaurants when asked. Anne was very pleasant and kind and telephoned on our arrival to say we could meet her at the apartment early if we wanted, which saved us having to fill a couple of hours. Anne showed us around the apartment explaining where everything was and how the appliances worked along with some suggestions of where to buy food and explore. As there were no guests arriving the day we were leaving she also said we could leave whenever suited us which meant we could leave our luggage and spend one last morning enjoying the Marais.
The apartment was like a home from home. It was beautifully decorated and furnished, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. It was exactly like the photos and very well designed. It had everything we could have needed for our stay and more.
The sofa and day beds were very comfortable and each day it took us just a couple of minutes to zip the duvet and pillows away (into the grey bag in the pictures - also becoming a foot rest!) and return the bed back to a sofa again, which we weren't expecting. This meant there was plenty of room and that we had a lounge area again. Our daughter had a little screen that she used to make her sleeping area more private or to pop behind to read/ go online.
The shower and toilet were separate which was useful and the shower was brilliant, powerful and hot. There were loads of cupboards to put our things, keeping the space uncluttered, including hanging space and hangers.
The wi fi was great, always working and a strong signal. We could all use at once if wanted. There was a docking station and satellite TV, although all in french so we didn't really bother and why would we when anyway.
The apartment was easy to find and on a nice quiet street, but just steps from lively streets and shops. There was a late night convenience store at the bottom of the road and a lovely bakery on the corner.
We loved the Marais area and all the cool and quirky shops on our doorstep. It was also very convenient to walk to many other areas and we only took the Metro a couple of times as we loved just wondering around. We stumbled upon lots of lovely cafés and bars and had some great meals. One good one if you fancied something lighter away from a 3 course meal was Casa San Pablo, 5 Rue De Sevigne for Tapas and Basques dishes. Fab food, cosy, friendly and great value.
We would thoroughly recommend staying in Julia's apartment and hope we can stay again very soon.
We had the perfect stay in this beautiful apartment. It was an ideal location; handy for the metro, a short stroll into the Marais and Place des Vosges plus dangerously close to lots of tempting shops.
Anne welcomed us and was very friendly and warm (as was the apartment-despite the chilly weather it was the perfect temperature inside.)
Communication was easy and the apartment is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The bed is super comfortable and we were provided with everything we needed. I will happily return and recommend to my friends.
Idéalement situé (à 50m du métro), dans le quartier très chic du Marais, le studio est confortable, fonctionnel et décoré avec goût. Nous nous sommes immédiatement sentis comme chez nous, une très bonne adresse pour qui a besoin d'un pied à terre à Paris, que ce soir pour le business ou pour visiter.
absolutely lovely apartment in a great location, recommend highly. Anne was very helpful and kind.
Julia and her friends were great guests. They communicated their time of arrival/departure, and left the apartment in perfect condition. It was a breeze to have them here. I couldn't have asked for better guests!
Julia is one of my best friend. She is a really nice and trustful person. Her place is lovely and as charming as described on AirBnB. I woud highly recommend to stay there for a wonderful trip in the city of Light, Paris.
