Jeremy Collins, UK August 2012

We stayed here in August with our 2 boys (7 & 10) and had a great time. The apartment is perfect - plenty of space, well furnished, modern amenities and has a huge selection of books & dvds.
It is near the steps up to the Sacre Coeur which has fantastic views of Paris - during the day and at night. It is also a place where street entertainers come for the tourists so we saw a puppet show, a guy doing fab football tricks and musicians! The area around the Sacre Coeur is filled with little shops, restaurants and Place du Tertre - a great place to just wander around. We walked from the apartment to the metro Barbes-Rochechouart which is on line 2 & 4 and found it very easy to get to Notre-Dame, Eiffel Tower, Pere Lachaise. We also went to Cite des Sciences et de l'Industrie which has a section for children called Cite des Enfants - which is absolutely brilliant for children. Our boys had a great time here and the only complaint from them was that we didn't have long enough as you are given an allocated hour and a half.
The apartment is very well located and the owners were friendly and professional with excellent directions, instructions, information etc.
We would definitely recommend this apartment and would return ourselves.


Bill Brampton, UK May 2011

This was a delightful apartment in an excellent location for Montmartre, and for visiting Paris generally. Good access to a range of Metro stations, although you will need strong legs for walking in this part of the city. Supermarket, excellent boulangerie and bank close at hand, and parking garages nearby.

The apartment was clean, and the owner ceaselessly helpful, arranging for easy access for our very late arrival and calling us the following day. An honesty system with basic foodstuffs made a short self-catering trip infinitely easier. Plenty of room for this young family to distribute toys, and toys available to be distributed. Comfortable beds, excellent shower, obligatory Parisian 'character' concierge.


Caroline Harper, UK, September 2010

"I just wanted to let you know how much myself and my sister enjoyed our recent stay in the apartment in Montmartre. The location is fantastic and the flat was very well equipped and clean. It felt as if we were staying in a proper home, rather than a holiday rental, and it felt very comfortable and relaxed.  We will definitely book with you again and will recommend the apartment to anyone else who is visiting. "


Brian Shensky, USA, June 2010

"I'd tell you again how wonderful your place is, but I'd fear that repetition would damage my credibility. OK OK OK OK .... Your place is fantastic!!!!!!  We loved it!  I said it again! We made it to Sacre Coeur and Place du Tertre on the last day. While shopping and sightseeing down by the river is always great, we feel especially fortunate to have "discovered" the area that was effectively our backyard. "



Charlotte Rindom, Denmark, May 2010

"The best located, spacious, light and charming apartment in the heart of Paris right at the foot of the Sacre Coeur. Who could ask for more. We couldn´t! Good beds, a clean space and good instructions on how to work everything in the apartment and a really good friendly service from both the owner and the concierge. We had the best of times at our stay here. It was easy to get around from the nearby metro and there is a lot of really good restaurants in the neighbourhood. We enjoyed it very much and won't hesitate to return for our next stay."



Gill Leigh-Ford, UK, February 2009

"Just to say we had a lovely weekend in your apartment - what a fabulous place and very well situated.  We followed your recommendations and had a lovely meal at Chez Bibi and could not drag my daughters away from Ysasu clothes shop downstairs either.

We will definitely be recommending it to friends and will return again ourselves."


The Smith Family, Vancouver Canada, August 2008

"Our weeks stay at this flat was enjoyed by all. It is very spacious and our family of five had no problems fitting in it. The location is very good for access to the metro and a very short walk to the lively area of Montmartre by the Sacre Coeur. Many good places to eat, drink and buy groceries. The supermarket just around the corner was very convenient.

We had a hot week in Paris and had to leave the windows open for fresh air. This street can be quite noisy with the windows open. When they are closed it is quiet.

The beds were very comfortable, the hot water and water pressure were good, the dishwasher did a good job but the washing machine seemed to have problems going through its cycle.

A very enjoyable stay. We would definitely come back and hope to do so soon!"


Rebecca Tansley, New Zealand, June 2008

"We really enjoyed our stay in Paris and your apartment was fantastic. It was a great location - the bakery was a bonus and we frequented it twice daily!- but also for us it was close enough still to walk into the centre of Paris, and the Metro was easy to use too. We will definitely re-book with you when we return to Paris."


Mary McMahon, Ireland, June 2008

"We had a brilliant holiday. Every one of us really enjoyed it and the rows were minimal !! Your apartment was wonderful.I could'nt get over its' spaciousness and lovely character . Much better than any hotel. Even though there were five of us ( 3 of whom were over 6' 3" !! ) we never felt overcrowded or on top of one another.

Your selection of books and DVDs was brilliant. The kids were able to watch a DVD and allow my husband and I time to read or chat in peace. My favourite room was the kitchen/dining room. It is a beautiful room with that lovely table and high ceiling.We usually got home between midnight and 1 a.m. and I loved sitting there listening to the night sounds. And of course, simply closing the windows blocked it all out if we wanted.

The kitchen facilities were excellent if I wanted to cook, which I did'nt ! Who would bother cooking with the great choice of local restaurants which were very reasonably priced."


Kay & Paul Stanley, Australia, April 2008

"We would like to say that after our travels through England, & Europe, the vote from the 4 of us, as to where we enjoyed the most would have to be Paris. We all fell in love with Paris, and a lot of the wonderful memories and feelings we have are in no small part to your lovely apartment.

The apartment was just wonderful, very French we felt, and spacious enough for 4 people to have their own space and also be together as a family. We had a couple of great meals whipped up in the kitchen, which is the hub of the flat. Living in the apartment made us feel like we were really living and experiencing Paris, with the cobblestone street outside the beautiful French windows and a fabulous patisserie only meters away. If we could, we would be back every year to stay in your flat, and enjoy Paris.

Thank you for some wonderful memories. Have told my friends if they want a place to stay in Paris to stay at your apartment."


Sophie Witter, UK, February 2008

"Thank you for the lovely flat. We really enjoyed staying in it and the area around it, and had a wonderful sunny week in Paris. Your DVD collection was especially popular with our kids in the evenings! I have also recommended the flat to various friends and relatives.

Many thanks, and best wishes"


Gordon Nicol. Brunei, Christmas 2007

"Just to let you know we enjoyed our stay in the apartment very much. We were warm and comfortable and all the arrangements worked out fine. It was a real home from home....

Anyway, thanks again for your help with the arrangements and all the best for 2008"


Chris and Moira Blincoe, France, December 2007

"We just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Paris, and especially because of your apartment. It was so nice to feel comfortable and relaxed in accommodation, and to be able to do our own cooking etc. Far better than a hotel!

The apartment is in a great location, and we found getting about, either on the Metro or walking, extremely easy. We will definitely keep it on our bookmark for future reference, and have also advised a few friends here in the mountains, of our wonderful find."


Gina Lucchesi and family, Australia, October 2007

"We flew into Melbourne last night and I’d like to let you know that our stay in Paris was the highlight of our trip. We appreciated the thought and care you placed into the letting of your apartment. We found it extremely comfortable and spacious and appreciated all those extra touches that often are not found in other rental properties. Your eye for detail is fantastic. Cheers and thanks again."

 


Kay McMahon, UK, October 2007

"What a relief to find an apartment that was actually bigger than it looked in the photos. One of most stress free accommodation experiences we've had, the location is superb and the facilities in the neighbourhood were just fantastic. Especially worth noting is the restaurant downstairs, the Cheri Bibi, which gave us our best meal in France... ever. The cocktails were pretty good too, such a bonus being less a one minute journey from bed! The apartment was extremely clean and the wi fi connection worked a treat. We'll definitely stay there again. Thank you!"


Dianne Charlton, UK, September 2007

"The apartment was everything we hoped it would be - in a little French street, very close to Sacre Coeur.The apartment had lots of charm and was very clean and well presented. The kitchen was well stocked and we loved the large farmhouse style kitchen table. The beds were very comfy and the bathroom clean and modern. We were surprised by the extensive D.V.D. and book collections and the presence of two lounge areas and of course, we were very impressed by the newly published work of our host. The book was delightful and is a well recommended read ! The little bakery opposite was delicious, as were the local cafes and restaurants. The people were friendly and helpful and appreciative of our poor attempts to speak their language. Transpot links to all of the tourist sites were excellent. As you can probably tell we had a marvelous time and would thoroughly recommend both the apartment and the integrity of the owners.

Thank you for giving us a glimpse of Paris as we ve never seen it before."


Judy Cadet, USA, September 2007

"We loved it! Especially the big kitchen table that sat 6 very easily (could have accomodated 8-10), and was a gathering place every evening to dine and discuss our days. Location was wonderful, in the eclectic Montmartre area,lots of fun shops,neighborhood bars,cheap shopping, and easy access to the Metro. Truly,a 2 minute walk to the 286 steps up to Sacre Couer,the best place to see all the city!

Beds were surprisingly comfortable, with nice down comforters on each. Kitchen had everything we needed, TV/DVD worked well,shower was nice and strong (another surprise in an older building).

Drawbacks? None, for us. The spiral staircase could be a bit of a problem for someone with lots of big luggage (we had small roll-aboards),or for someone not so sure on their feet. Be very careful going/coming thru the front door to the building, the guardienne lives right there and scolded us a couple times for being too noisy!

Would we go again and stay in the apartment? Absolutely! We are talking of making it a trip every other year,and bring different family members to enjoy it with us.

Thank you, Belinda and Ian, for a great vacation and for having such a special place! Judy"


James Nevin, Ireland, August 2007

"We stayed in this apartment for 11 days in late August (2007) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was ideal for our family of five.  Location was ideal - adjacent to the lively Montmartre area, close to supermarkets and a variety of shops and within a short walk of the excellent Paris metro. In the late evening and during the night the street and building was quiet.

The apartment was larger than anticipated and could easily accommodate six people comfortably. A well stocked library with a variety of books, DVDs, CDs and games helped to give the apartment a really homely atmosphere. The owners of the property were always extremely helpful and easily contactable before and during our stay. With the directions provided we had no difficulty on arrival at Bauvais taking the airport bus and metro."

Highly recommended for families and those who want to live in a true Parisian environment during their holidays"
