Apartment Rue Duhesme - 200

“We were very comfortable in the rue Duhesme apartment in the Montmarte area. The place was clean and spacious and the neighbourhood was great for easy access to all the sights. We were very pleased with the process from start to finish and the owner helped us get in and out without a problem. Keith and family(USA)     August 2014

“The flat was perfect for the three of us - gave us space to spread out. The flat had everything we needed for our six day stay in Paris - it was wonderful to sit on the balcony after a long day of walking around Paris, enjoying a glass of wine. The location was great! - in walking distance from a Metro station, a boulangerie, little supermarkets, and bars and restaurants. Helen(Australia)

“We cannot recommend this highly enough. When we arrived we were met and welcomed by the owner. The apartment was clean and tidy and was everything we hoped it would be. The check-in and check-out were quick and easy and we were made to feel very welcome. A credit to your organisation. Geoff and family" (USA)

“We really enjoyed staying in a "real person's" apartment instead of a holiday rental. *** was very welcoming and the apartment everything we had expected. It was really good that he left us timetables and directions to local bus stops and shops, though disappointing that many of his recommended ones were shut for the August break. It made it all so much easier that there were things like salt, oil, etc which we could use. The only things we would have wanted extra were a kettle and a teapot (being typically English) but we managed well without them. We have found dealing with you and the apartment's owner through email very easy even though we were 1st time visitors to Paris, or France at all. Annete(UK)

“I wish to advise you that I was more than content at the service provided by both your Agency and the Owner of the Apartment. All information and assistance was given in a most professional way and the reception in Paris was appreciated. *** was flexible in being available at my own schedule rather than his. I have traveled extensively in my life and have dined in many restaurants which in fact has become very tedious. The ability to have full days to wander around Montmartre and Place Pigalle (very close at hand) and then to be able to come "Home" and have a "Home Cooked Meal" is a refreshing change. Each evening we would sit and have dinner outside on his full and well tended flowered patio. The location of the apartment was also ideal with a grocery and a bakery store being a few meters away. The apartment itself had a "lived-in look" and made us feel comfortable. *** has an extensive library of books that he allowed us to browse plus a Home Entertainment Center. As I had rented a car for our stay the added bonus was the Parking Spot in the basement of the building. This saved me a lot of hassle in trying to find a place to park at night which in Paris seems to be impossible. In other words my stay in Paris was a welcome change from my usual routine of Hotels and Taxis. All in all a very pleasant stay in Paris. - I would most certainly do it again. Roger(Congo)

Apartment Rue Bachelet - 448

“We had a wonderful week in Paris and that apt. was perfect for us. Great location in the Montmartre neighborhood, close to the metro, groceries and restaurants nearby. The feature that made it perfect was the private patio/garden in the back. The airport pick-up and transport to the airport was punctual and very much appreciated. Will recommend to others. Donna(USA)

"Hi, The apartment was beautiful. The owners, neighbors and the caretaker were very gracious. The garden was amazing. It was so peaceful and relaxing that we didn't want to leave even to go out into the best city in the world. The owners were very generous, they provided wine, fixings for breakfast, a computer, a supply of paper for the printer, plenty of laundry detergent, a drying rack, a large supply of coffee for the espresso machine. There was a large supply of music-- mostly classical (which we loved), lots of books though they were almost all in French. They made themselves easily available to answer any questions. Rue Bachelet was very quiet at night though the carnival atmosphere of Montmartre was just a few, very steep, steps away. The metro and a bus line that goes directly to the Champs and the Eiffel tower were just steps away. Though the apartment has an elevator I wouldn't recommend the neighborhood for anyone who has trouble walking uphill or climbing stairs, though of the two closest Metro stops, Chateau Rouge has a escalator coming up and the Lamark stop has an elevator that goes up and down. Taxis were easy to find most of the time except for one day which may have been a holiday for the primary ethnic group in the area. We didn't have a problem with it but anyone who is excessively concerned with modesty could have a problem with the master bath as the window is uncovered to the courtyard which is overlooked by several buildings. It's somewhat sheltered by plants but if someone really wanted to watch one shower they could. There are two showers so one could always use the other shower if they felt uncomfortable. Minor problems: There weren't very many TV channels available and they were all in French but the only time I missed TV was when I wanted to relax with my feet up in between activities. We also had some problems with power conversion, my computer charged great but our electric toothbrushes and camera wouldn't charge and the toothbrush charger may have been permanently damaged. If the weather is warm the garden does required watering, we enjoyed it but some people might not. We will definitely stay there again. Hope(USA)

“Hi! Well, we certainly did enjoy our stay. We loved the apartment and everything was very well kept. It was fantastic. Thanks! Kimiko(USA)
