The apartment is even lovelier in person than the photos. Smack dab in the middle of paris, yet the quietest apartment I've been in. Although i did not meet Stephane, i appreciated his flexibility with our early check in.
My wife and I are frequent visitors to Paris and normally stay up in the Marais area, however this time this apartment caught my eye, not only for the nicely renovated inside spaces and amenities, but also for the double balconies and location on the island right next to Notre Dame.
First and foremost the communication with Stephane was superb, he was quick to respond to any questions and arranged us to get into the apartment earlier than usual due to our train from London coming in at 10am, very appreciative of not having to lug our bags around the city while we waited to check in.
Secondly, the location on the island was perfect. The flat is on the top floor of a lovely Parisian apartment building, and does include a lift for those not able to make it up the 6+ flights of stairs. The flat is very well appointed with being newly remodeled within the last 2-3 years and everything is still like new. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed we have ever had the luxury of sleeping in during our regular holidays, very very comfortable and much needed to recharge after walking the streets of Paris all day and night!
There was great airflow when having all the windows open and the sleeping climate was ideal. There was little to no street noise as the windows open up into the rear of the building and give a lovely view over the picturesque rooftops of Paris.
The location on the island was very convenient to several cafe's, crepe stands, restaurants, and the metro (not only back to the Airport, but also an easy connection to anywhere in paris, however I'd still recommend walking everywhere to really enjoy the city!).
We had no issues with this flat and would highly recommend Stephane and this apartment for anyone looking to stay in Paris. It is a studio and I would only recommend it for couples as you will be spending all of your time together as there is no where to go, but very well appointed with several eating areas, patios, and plenty of room to do what needed to be done, including laundry!
We will definitely be back to Paris in the future and wouldn't hesitate to book with Stephane again!
