“A Perfect Apartment for Paris”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014
1
person found this review helpful

In short, this is an outstanding option for a stay in Paris. The apartment itself is comfortable in size. Though it is a studio, it is intelligently set out to make the most of the space and my wife and I felt that we had more than enough space. Everything you could need is contained in the apartment, the bed is comfortable and the building is very secure and quiet.

The area the apartment is on (the ile de la cite) is very safe and secure (in fact, it seems one of the main police depots is around the corner so I can't imagine much goes on there!) and has some very good restaurants and bars for the evening. You couldn't ask for much more from a place to stay, really, in terms of where this is. In terms of location for Paris, there are excellent RER and metro links and the apartment is situated just to the south of the Marais district (great for shopping, bars and restaurants) and it has easy access to the main attractions of Paris (it's about 25 minutes to walk to the Musee d'Orsay).

Our hosts for the flat, Mark and Marie-Christine met us with the keys to suit our travelling, helped us to settle in, gave us excellent advice and tips for restaurants and then made sure we were happy before leaving.

You really can't ask for more from a holiday apartment!

“Be part of Paris - Notre Dame around the corner the Seine out your window”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The ideal locale for lovers and foodies! Fresh croissants, wine and food around the corner. The Seine & Hotel de Ville out our 2nd floor window. The apartment was close to everything we needed - Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Batobus (to get to the Eiffel Tower) , the shops, the Shakespeare & Co book store and great cafes and restaurants. But the best thing was going home to this lovely apartment having a Nespresso coffee and simply watching the boats go by on the Seine - literally a stones throw away! Or lift your head and look across at the Hotel de Ville. And yes the pull down bed is very very comfortable. You just feel like you are totally experiencing the heart of Paris. We'll be back!

“Christmas in Paris”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013
1
person found this review helpful

My wife and I just stayed in Paris for a couple of weeks before Christmas.
Everything from reserving the apartment online to receiving our deposit on the last day of our vacation was flawless.
On our first day we arrived by taxi and were greeted by Marc at the front door of the apartment. You can't ask for a better welcome. Marc and Marie Christine briefed us on the apartment amenities and were very helpful with suggestions (e.g. markets, day trips etc)
We took Marie Christine's advice and did a day trip to Strasbourg to visit Christmas Markets.
The location is truly central. Five minutes to Ile Saint Louis, ten minutes to the Latin Quarter or the Marais made it possible to return to the apartment for a midday rest after long days of exploring.
Having the opportunity to walk past Notre Dame after midnight and realizing there are no crowds is indescribable. 
While the apartment and the bed may be smaller than what we from the US are used to at hotels, but you are in Paris and you get a chance to feel like a local. The apartment was perfectly comfortable for us two. It is is very clean. The elevator is great. The shower and hot water are wonderful. Having a washer and dryer means you don't have to pack as much clothes and more room to pack those things you will buy. 

I always have that little worry in the back of my mind that the place we rent is not what it seems on the Internet. On our last two trips to Paris I spent hours online researching apartments, looking at the location on Google Streetview and cross checking evey review trying to find just the right one.
For this trip my wife spent only a few minutes online and found Marc and Marie Chrisine's rental. We just took a chance to have a view, did no further seaching and were delighted with our stay.

“True Parisienne experience in a unique apartment!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

After exhaustive research we settled on this apartment. From our initial contact with Marie Christine and Marc to the end of our stay our experience was faultless. The apartment itself is unique - the small floor space is so well utilised we had no issues during our week long stay - while a little sceptical about the bed - it was perfect. As for location, the apartment is in a quiet area with magnificent views yet a minutes walk places you in Notre Dam and a few minutes more into the Latin Quarter. Restaurants abound together with ample places to buy provisions for a night in to watch the world go by! Marie Christine and Marc felt like old family friends and added to the experience. From all the apartments we stayed in during our trip this is one of our favourites and really made us feel like locals and truly added to a typical Parisienne experience. You can walk to most places but we found the Open top bus coupled with the superb ferry service saved time and money and allowed us more time to stop for a coffee or wine and take in the atmosphere. As for tours - its easy enough to get around to all the major sites and museums yourself, but two tours outside of Paris we would recommend are to the Battlefields in the Somme region (truly a moving experience) and Monet's garden (truly breathtaking).Loved Paris and this was even more enhanced by the exceptional apartment and the kind attention of Marie Christine and Marc.

“central location and unobstructed view of the Seine”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Marie Christine and Marc were excellent hosts. The apartment is exactly as the photo's show and the maps, linen, facilities and advice are all of a high standard.
As mentioned in a previous review the bed issue has been resolved, it now operates manually ( you easily raise and lower it by one hand, no problem now ).
Two very minor things, we learned that safe means that the apartment is safe, which it is and the "wood fire" was in the apartment they also rent out above this one.
We were very happy with our choice and would stay there again.
