The 3 apartments are situated at the bottom of Mme Evrard's garden but can be reached via a private door into a rear street. There is on-street parking in this quiet area and we and our car were perfectly safe. Each room has a private bathroom and kitchenette where you could make simple meals if you wished to. Breakfast is waiting for you in a basket outside your door every morning. My husband and I had one of the 2 ground floor apartments and our teens had the first floor apartment which is big enough for 5 and has a lovely balcony where we all had breakfast each morning and entertained our French friends when they visited. You can take the bus from outside the main house to Argenteuil station and from there take the train to Gare St Lazare - only a few minutes walk from there to the Seine, the Eiffel Tower and the bateaux mouches. We had a lovely stay, comfy beds, all very clean, Mme Evrard doesn't speak English but is a helpful and charming host. SO much nicer than the local hotels and good value for money. We'll be back next time we are visiting our friends.
