So pleased with our entire experience. Rent Villas was an excellent company to work with. Our contact, Jannah was responsive, clear, and exceptionally courteous. This was our 1st time renting overseas, and working with Jannah took away much of our nervousness. 4 adults and a child comprised our party. The apartment is located a very short walk from the Champs Élysées, close to the Ave. Montaigne for luxury window shopping. Supermarket is across the street or another one around the corner. Kitchen is well equipped, with dishwasher, washer and dryer. Bedrooms were spacious. Yes, this is an older building. But with that comes high ceilings with beautiful plaster work, wrought iron balcony railings, tall windows, and the feeeling of being in Paris, not a nondescript chain hotel. The touches in the apartment (guidebooks left on the coffee table, coffee in the canister) and the cleanliness, told us the owner(s) were gracious and wanted our stay to be a good one. Our guide to the apartment was a gracious woman who took time to show us everything. Cannot recommend the experience of renting enough. This apartment is lovely, filled with good light, comfortable furniture and beds. The neighborhood is safe. Very quiet on the weekends. Good restaurants within walking distance ( Vinoteca and Finzi if you are craving Italian, Julian's for a boulangerie

While we were looking for something with Parisian creds, this rental is a little old, smelly and in need of updating to be truly comfortable. There are elements that are good - like the location close to the Champs, the quiet street at night and the one new shower - but other than that, the heating system was confusing and annoying, the kitchen old and smelling permanently of bacon, and the lack of decent lighting. It could be a great place to flop, but frankly the smell, dampness and age are overwhelming at times. On another note, the rental company rentvillas.com is very professional and attentive.
