Lovely property situated close to rail and trams - only 3 stops from the city centre. Local shops providing all you need. Well appointed kitchen meant we didn't need to go out after long days touring. Perfect for our needs. Would highly recommend
It was an unexpected pleasure to have access to a private locked garage. We parked the car and only used public transportation during our stay. The tram to town was frequent, fast and nearby. Lille is a beautiful, historic city. They don’t need tourist driving! We regret that we didn't allow more time in the area because Lille offers so much to see and do. We had planned to visit Belgium but a week was not enough time for us.
The apartment was near downtown in a nice neighborhood within easy walking distance to groceries and restaurants. Additionally, it was quiet, comfortable and clean. Having the washer, dryer, and dishwasher was an added convenience for this rental unit.
A written list of instructions was left on the table in both a French and English version. The instructions included a request to mop kitchen, bathroom, and vacuum. Additionally, it read “fold the linens you have used and place them in the tub”. My husband speaks French. He read the French version of the cleaning instructions which not include the mopping requirement. So if you are French, you get a break!
The apartment is bright and well equipped. It is very close to Saint Maur tram stop, a small supermarket, chemist and a bakers. From St Maur it is just four stops to Lille Flanders station, the Euralille shopping centre and the pretty old town with it's cobbled streets, shops and restaurants.
Guy and Christina were extremely helpful, Guy picked us up from the station when we arrived on the Eurostar and explained everything about the apartment, nearby shops and the tram/metro system.
I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to visit again.
Location is brilliant. The tram stop is 2 mins walk away. €1 into beautiful Lille. Trams every few minutes.
Travel to lovely Bruges and Belgium is a so easy too.
Secure garage for the car in a secure car park. No problems looking for a space.
Easy communication and very hospitable and generous owners.
Apartment is lovely, bathroom and kitchen brand new.
Maybe could do with another two seater sofa as there was six of us but only 4 seats. Plenty of dining chairs though.
