Madison Touriste was a fabulous place to stay. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts and given wonderful advice anytime we asked. The house itself was like a home away from home. The location was perfect. Close enough to the city, but quaint in its...More

About the neighborhood
We were specifically looking for a property to rent to visitors. Therefore, it was extremely important to find a location that offered easy access to the French Quarter and downtown and a neighborhood that was quiet and authentically New Orleans with restaurants and such very close.

Algiers Point was perfect, since it uniquely is right by the action yet still calming and peaceful. The ferry to the French Quarter takes just 5 minutes and runs every 30 minutes. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet, which were also very important factors. Plus, just walking through the neighborhood one gets a feel of true New Orleans charm by seeing the old, beautifully-restored homes; hearing the church bells, tugboats, steam calliope from the river, and receiving hellos from friendly neighbors.
