Bertrand and Isabelle meet us on arrival and the 4 of us shared a glass of Champagne WHAT a welcome to Paris - these Hosts are more than hosts they make your stay a pleasure this is not a destination but a welcome home to their lovely apartment.
We spent 4 days renewing our selves with Paris after many years away, the apartment was our little oasis late at night to watch the real Paris pass by. It is more than a 5 star hotel it is a home away from home.
There is every thing you need in the apartment from a great shower with excellent pressure, to a extremely comfortable bed.
Thank you Bertrand and Isabelle
Bertrand’s place in the 14th arrondisement was a real find for us, especially in Paris, where many places are small. But Bertrand’s apartment had plenty of space and it was laid out optimally: 2 bedrooms in back, both overlooking a courtyard, then a hall goes to a bathroom, wc, and closets; and then a small kitchen, well stocked, and a lovely red living room/dining room overlooking a quiet street. We especially appreciated the fine views out the front windows, looking onto beautiful, classically-Parisian buildings. The back bedrooms, one of which had a little balcony, looked onto a quiet green courtyard. The best part about this rental, though, was the fine hospitality and assistance Bertrand extended to us. He met us with cake and juice and champagne, stayed to chat and offer recommendations , and kept in touch during the visit – unobtrusively, but in the manner of a kind friend. And one tip: DO read the informative guide that Bertrand offers for appliances and services in and around the apartment. Some of the things in the apartment worked differently than our American machines, and we were grateful for the ‘heads up.’ We will be back, for sure.
We love everything. Bertrand and Isabelle, our hosts left us delighted with the care and attention.They are waiting with croissants and coffee. It was my daughter's 15th birthday celebration and they sent us cake, champagne and a lovely card.
The apartment is perfect, very well equipped and decorated.
Loved it and we'll be back for sure!
WE LOVE THIS PLACE. When we arrived from Florence , Betrand , his wife and daughter were there to welcome us. Friendly and very welcoming. He took the time to explain every single thing that needed explanation. A very meticulous and very efficient man. The apartment was very very comfortable, very clean and everything works. At any time we could contact him for advise and apt advice was given. The location of the apartment is 5 minutes from the subway and Paris is all yours to enjoy. Good bakeries, Restaurants, cafes and a fantastic Indian restaurant ( Ganesh) all within walking distance. Betrand and his daughter was very helpful to get our Emirates boarding passes printed, in color and delivered it to us by hand even though they live 25 kms away. I give 100% marks for this place. It made our holiday.
Bertrand is welcoming, friendly and keen that his guests enjoy the city he obviously loves. The apartment is clean, well-furnished and close to metro and bus links to the centre. The comprehensive information pack tells you all you need to know about the apartment, local amenities and what to do in Paris. Just what you need for a great city break!
The apartment is located in a nice quarter, not far from the major sights. It is very well and comfortable, you feel like being home very easily. This contributes also to the landlord who provided us with very useful information already in advance and gave us a very warm and hearty welcome. He always made sure we were having a good time. We could aks any questions concerning our stay.
Bertrand's flat was immaculate and very well located next to a metro line that takes you straight to many of Paris' major attractions. Bertrand greeted us personally and had a lovely surprise up his sleeve for my 60th birthday from the cake shop nearby which is excellent. A well stocked Espresso machine with every strength of pod available, was a really good touch. Not only will I stay there again next time I am in Paris, I will plan my dates to make sure this apartment is available.
