This is a perfectly situated apartment. Compact but with everything you need. The view is divine and a great spot to have a glass of wine and watch the world go by. Marie-Christine met us at the apartment and was incredibly helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
This is my second stay at Marie-Christine's and Marc's studio apartment, and it remains my favorite place to stay in Paris. I like being on the islands, close to my favorite restaurants and cafes, and the river view from this apartment is stunning. One of the most delightful things about the space of the apartment itself is the size of the shower. Though the bathroom is small, the shower is huge, big enough to towel off in. I will certainly be back. Thanks to Marie-Christine for her attention and help.
Well Paris is our favorite city so it's easy to enjoy ourselves there. We have stayed all around there and found being right next to Notre Dame quite nice. The apartment is on the third floor but there is a very tiny elevator that works 'most' of the time...the views out the window are of the river looking across at the DeVille, great location. Restaurants all around, Sainte Germaine there within walking distance, as is their Marais district. Marie has a great feel for this area and is able to give you all sorts of info on things to do, places to enjoy, so no issues there. The kitchen in the apt is nice, clean, new towels, plates, working microwave. The bathroom is swank, recently renovated, good hot water and a drain that doesn't back up. Heat is adequate. The fold down bed is high end, while that could be an issue for some, having to put it up and then take it down, daily, it's very comfortable, coming with high end sheets as well as a new feather bed. The furniture is all very nice, a comfy place to sit, sip some tea, and watch lifes go by on the other side of the street. Also, and this is a biggie, it's quiet, and there is a very good croissant shop just down the street.
I'm sure you'll enjoy it, check it out, Salida1048
I don't even know where to start! Marie-Christine is absolutely wonderful to work with when renting this apartment. The view is absolutely amazing! And the location of the apartment is perfect, perfect, perfect! You are literally right around the corner from the Notre Dame Cathedral, so that should give you an idea of the gorgeous architectural buildings around you. It's about a 5-8 minute walk from the Louvre Museum. Everything, I mean everything, is within walking distance. My mom and I took a stroll one day and came across the cutest garden shopping center near the Cité Metro stop; a gorgeous park; and then ended up at Place de Concord and shopped along Champs-Elysees. We didn't even realize we had walked a couple of miles because the scenery around us was breathtaking.
The apartment is perfect. It's a studio apartment so it has all the necessities compacted. My mom and I were only in there to sleep, so it was no problem for us since were out busy exploring the whole time.
The elevator is for only person, so don't pack a lot of luggage like my mom and I did or it will be a few trips. Haha but nothing to use as a deciding factor not to rent.
The neighborhood is extremely safe. There are so many eating choices around you. True Parisian restaurants. If you're a Starbucks nut like me, the nearest one is across the river, so it's a bit of a walk. Also, there are a plethora of shopping choices. You have Parisian boutiques as well as couture stores!
If I happen to return to Paris for a second visit, I will absolutely rent this apartment again from a Marie-Christine.
You will not regret renting this charming apartment. We loved it and it truly felt like home while we were in Paris!
We have just returned from 6 nights in this beautiful apartment,and it is as everyone else says just magical plus a whole lot more.I know it may seem to rose coloured glasses,but we are already talking about visiting next year,and i cant wait.The apartment is spotlessly clean,you really cant complain about anything every detail is taken care of,Marie-Christine and Marc and perfect hosts and the whole apartment is comfort for the guests based and they have good that just right plus some.Thank you both so much for making our stay in your beautiful city just perfect.
