I 'm from france , I live in belgium though with my girlfriend Laetitia .
I'm a musician and I love to travel…When I 'm away my best friend Pascaline takes care of the reservations.
Great place, what a garden, what a nice bed. For us was perfect, I selected it since I was 2 min from avenue Louise where I had my meetings. But it ended being one of the most trendy neighborhoods of Brussels, good shops are located very close as well as nice restaurants, all kind of world food.
The hosts are on top superb. It was a pleasure, and if we come back no doubts we will try and book it again.
Excellent séjour dans un très bel appartement. Sans être présent, Thomas s'est montré assez efficace et souple pour s'adapter à nos horaires de départ et d'arrivée, tout en répondant rapidement à nos questions. L'appartement, propre spacieux et fonctionnel, est décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Le jardin et la terrasse sont, bien entendu, un énorme "plus". Et le charmant quartier d'Ixelles est à la fois paisible et vivant, riche de bonnes adresses, et parfait pour profiter pleinement d'un long week-end à Bruxelles.
The place is cosy and comfortable! It was nice to enjoy the sun in the garden!
And the distric is very lively, full of nice places where to eat, drink and do shopping.
I'll come back!!!
Fantastic stay in an elegant & very beautifully furnished flat. The location is ideal as well. Last but not least, Thomas&Laetitia are very charming and available people. If you need to stay in Bruxelles don't think twice, just book here !!!
Excellent stay at Thomas' appartement and at Brussels of course !
Thomas was very available before and during our stay at his place and we fully recommend you to experience his appartment.
Very well located at Ixelles, cosmopolitan and central neighborhood of Brussels. Thomas gave us all his good tips (restaurants, shopping, etc ...) to enjoy Brussels and his neighborhood, and his recommendations were excellent !!
We'll come back at Spring for sure ...
We stayed at Thomas' for our honeymoon and we could not have made a better choice! The flat is about a 10m walk to the Sacre Couer and near the bustling streets of Montmartre!
Thomas welcomed us and left red roses and a white wine for us to celebrate our "lune de miel". He was absolutely welcoming!
(i) the house has lots of personality, specially if you like music and art. The live piano and fireplace gives an automatic romantic feeling to any couple;
(ii) The music collection is bound to make your stay a perfect one (no tv in the living room which even makes for a cosier ambiance);
(iii) two metro stations (Chateau Rouge and Marcadet-Poissoniers) at walking distance (5m) that can take you virtually anywhere;
(iv) three great restaurants at walking distance: the best couscous in town at Le Petit Bleu (rue muller); french cuisine @ Le eté en pente douce (next door to Le Petit Bleu) and Le Patio for a quick bite or a nice lunch at really low prices (we ate a lot for 10 euros each).
(v) His movie collection at your disposition for calmer evenings you may stay in (from Alex Proya's Dark City to Woody Allen's Interiors);
(vi) Fully functional Kitchen;
(vii) several boulangeries and supermarkets near by.
(i) the stairs to the bed rooms are not suited for older people;
(ii) no elevator but the stairs are not that difficult. For us this was not a problem.
All in all, if you stay at Thomas you can be sure to be well treated, safe and, above all, you can live like a true Parisian for a few days.
5 stars out of 5.
Don't hesitate to book! Very well kept apartment - we were thrilled with our stay here! Only about a 10-minute walk to the center of Montmartre. Thomas was very quick to respond to my initial request (minutes, not hours), and his friend Pascaline who met us was lovely and accommodating. The apartment was close to grocery stores and the subway, making our stay to Paris feel like home. We indulged in music at all hours, with Thomas' brimming music selection and surround-sound stereo set up.
Both beds were comfortable, and there were many extra towels and sheets. Perfectly suited for 1-3 people.
I recommend getting off at the Chateau Rouge subway stop if it's late at night.
Thomas was prompt answering my emails, as was Pascaline, his friend who met us at the apartment. As others have said, his fine music and movie collection (which you are free to use) make me wish I had met Thomas. The apartment was clean and looked like the pictures, and the beds were comfortable. A Metro stop, shops, and restaurants are close by. Five flights of steps are a lot with suitcases, but in truth, it seemed like nothing after the steps at Notre Dame, Basilique du Sacre Coeur, L'Arc de Triomphe, La Tour Eiffel, and all the many metro steps. I agree with another reviewer--it just allowed us to eat more great French food! The tight spiral steps down from the bedroom upstairs, however, were tricky in the dark for someone getting up in the night to use the bathroom. Our 18-year-old daughter slept on the day bed on the main floor, so we didn't want to wake her with lights, but the creaking spiral stairs woke her anyway. The bathroom is also very small--my husband is over 6' tall with long arms and he felt cramped in the shower. I imagine the fireplaces (2!) would be wonderful to use if you visited in the winter. This is a place with character and personality, not a sterile hotel room.
We had a great stay at Thomas' apartment. The place is beautiful, comfortable and clean, and is located in the best neighborhood in Paris. Thomas was polite, communicative and helpful. We certainly intend to stay there again when next in Paris.
We went to Paris for a concert and it turned out that the venue was around the corner! So were a great supermarket and LOTS of steep stairs up to Sacré-Cœur :) A friend greeted us and gave us a tour around the apartment. Great location and other places were easy to reach from there. Nice view from the apartment and everything needed (plus a great music collection) was provided. The cleaning lady was a bit early, but nice. Thomas: thank you! Hope to come by again and meet you!
Thomas and laetitia are a really great couple!
It was easy to speak with them and they were curious to know what Buenos Aires had to offer.
They were really nice, friendly and open!
And Thomas even helped me to shange the lamp in one of the patios!
I would really recomend them as guests!
Thomas is a dear friend, he's a great guy and has a really lovely appartment not far from mine! He's a wonderful friend & host, go for it!
When i traveled to Paris in January I stayed at Thomas wonderful apartment. 2 floors all to myself. Cute little terrace. Very clean. Good neighborhood right by Sacre Coeur and many cute bars and restaurants. Thomas is kind and super helpful. The place itself is clean with an artistic vibe. I highly recommend staying in Thomas's place if you are traveling through Paris!!
Thomas is a really nice guy and a wonderful musician. I'm sure you will enjoy your time in his really nice parisian appartment.
Thomas is a very nice person and an excellent musician! His flat in the heart of Montmartre will delight you and you'll feel like a typical Parisian!
Thomas is a very nice person. We met on the plane when I was flying to France to study abroad and he was so friendly and gave me advice for what to do in Paris and in NY since he was commuting frequently between the two. He's very friendly and a wonderful musician!
