I really dont know how to start, our experience here was perfect. We arrived in the after noon on saturday and was met by Deider, Clarie's husband. showed us everything we needed to get to our room and where the locale restaurants were, in fact he made reservations for us at Le Bellisare, Which was an amazing experience in itself. But being jet-lagged, we ended up sleeping most of the evening. The next morning, after our perfect breakfast, Deider took us to the flea market that is every sunday near the house. He loves to go more than we did.. and we had a blast. Of course my wife bought the heaviest book known to man there, and I got to carry it back..He help us with our first purchases or metro tickets and showed us how to traverse the metro, which is extremely easy once you know how, and cheaper than a metro pass or taxis.
The following day was spent doing the tourist stuff, but Dieder had to leave for business and Claire was now in the house. Such a charming woman.. we had so many great conversations about what to do in Paris and where to eat.. She really made our trip that much better. We met people from all over staying with her, a great couple from England, couple from another part of France, and some ladies from Korea.. This is the type of place you need to go if you want to stay away from the touristy parts of Paris... This neighborhood has all the small boutique little shops and restaurants and you get to truly see Paris as Parisians live..We loved our stay with Claire and Dieder and look forward to seeing them again in the future.
