"A great place to stay"

We stayed at the La Maisonnette for 8 days in September. The location is very central and near many underground stations.

Chris is an excellent source of information. He greeted us upon our arrival and showed us the area surrounding our apartment. He was very kind and efficient and I would highly recommend his places.

Thank you for your review. I am happy to have helped you having a great time in Paris :-) All the best. Chris

"En octobre... Brrr"

L'appartement s'avère être une chambre bien petite, humide et froide... Avis au voyageurs d'automne : le chauffage débute à la mi-octobre, quelque soit la température extérieure !… More

Chere Chantal, merci pour votre message. Cette année, le mois d'octobre a été plus froid que d habitude, donc des que vous m avez dit qu il faisait froid, j ai immédatement demandé a l immeuble de mettre le chauffage en route. Cela a mis qques jours. Mais j ai acheté un chauffage supplémentaire pour les futurs voyageurs. Cela ne recommencera pas. Désolé encore :-( Si jamais vous revenez a Paris, n hesitez pas a me rappeler et je vous ferai une belle reduction sur votre séjour.

"Modern, secure, studio-like apt, great bed, wonderful landlord, charming neighborhood, access to the whole city."

I have stayed at two of Christophe's properties (La Boulangerie and Laundry Loft). They are both small, very clean, modern, functional, well-equipped, excellent water pressure for the showers. The beds can't be beat. The properties are located bit away from the madding crowd in a friendly, culturally interesting neighborhood with easy access to public transportation (metro, bus lines, bike rental) to quickly reach all the great places of Paris. Christophe speaks English and is a terrific landlord who took me on a walking tour of the neighborhood and was helpful in every way. The climb to the bed loft in La Boulangerie would be difficult for a person of limited mobility, while at the Laundry Loft all is on a single floor. I loved that both these apts. were on street level and with excellent security. WIFI and TV worked well (BBC is comforting after a daylong city exploration while practicing my French). I felt cozily at home in both apartments. Thank you, Christophe, for helping make my holidays happy.

"Live like a Parisian"

This owner cares about his guests. Christophe gave us a tour of the neighborhood to show us where the locals eat and shop. This apartment is best for a couple. We thought the sofa was a bed but Christophe came to the rescue and provided a mattress so all was great. He will even print off boarding passes etc and deliver them to you. The bedroom is a loft type. It has a lower ceiling so if you are tall I wouldn't recommend it. The apartment had everything we needed.
