I’ve dreamed of going to Paris for over 20 years and I was wowed from the moment I arrived at my Paris apartment for the next two weeks on rue Duvivier. This 1930’s Art Deco apartment is designed to be beautiful and comfortable, with a combination of modern and antique. It has all the amenities one needs, including washer and dryer.
The neighborhood really is like the heart of Paris, offering a perfect chic village atmosphere. It’s an ideal location: walking distance to so much. We enjoyed breakfast in our apartment and going downstairs in our neighborhood to Rue Cler to get our daily patisseries to enjoy with our French Press coffee before we started the day. We enjoyed several great cafes, restaurants and markets in the neighborhood and the metro is so close. Thank you for everything it felt like home.

Wonderful apartment! We truly enjoyed our Paris experience. I am now trying to plan a trip to your apartment with my two daughters and daughter-in-law for 2014

Your apartment greeting was VERY helpful and welcoming --I appreciate the detailed explanations: about the apartment, the neighborhood, how to work the clothes washer, how to take the bus, organizing a taxi for us, etc. We had an excellent experience.

I stayed at this flat for two weeks in January and it is exactly as the owner stated. The apartment is very charming and is within walking distance to Rue Cler, La Tour Eiffel, Invalides and my most favorite Pont Alexandre III which connects to the Champs Elysees. The metro is very close where one can easily get to other parts of the city. The photos are spot on so there are no hidden surprises. It was very clean when we arrived and we had no issues. The owner was very helpful in answering all of our questions and even suggested places of interest. I've already mentioned this place to friends and plan on staying there again in the future. This was a great experience to visit Paris in the Winter and I would do it again in this apartment in a heart beat.

Staying in your apartment was a great experience. It is so central and easy to access all areas of Paris. The rue Cler markets made it easy to cater for ourselves as we had the kitchen to use. The apartment is really very well appointed and very comfortable.
Noel W – Queensland, AUS
The location and apartment were excellent. My whole family hopes to visit you again.
Michelle B – Atlanta, GA
My life-long friend, two sisters and one sister-in-law spent five fabulous nights in your apartment on rue Duvivier. We loved having the spacious, homey atmosphere; found the welcome from Marie-Noel to be warm and helpful;and the apartment to be well-appointed. Even the kitchen had all the fundamentals for every-day life. We so enjoyed our own breakfasts-usually with me running to the patisserie on Rue Cler for pains au chocolat- and several evening meals at home which were easy to do with all the shops so close. We left our favorite easy dinner recipe in the welcome book - we hope you will enjoy it too.
Jill W - Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Great location! We were able to walk to many sites. The apartment is right along a bus line that took us EVERYWHERE and dropped us off almost at our door. No need for a car at this location! Cooked one meal a day and then enjoyed the cafes in the Rue Cler area. Also, some really nice boutiques and shops in the area. Rick Steves recommendation was spot on.
Chuck and Sarah R, Honolulu, HI
We had a very nice time and enjoyed the excellent apartment accommodations. It was really our home away from home. Thank you for your kind consideration and assistance. It was very much appreciated!! Merci
Elaine W - Seattle, WA
We love your apartment - thank you for sharing it with our family. We found the location perfect and the apartment beautiful as well as comfortable. Our Paris adventure was filled with exploration and great meals but turning on to "our street", rue Duvivier, on each return home was such a treat!
Maria G and family, San Diego, CA
We had a wonderful visit to Paris! Our accommodations were lovely, and very comfortable. Everything was arranged and supplied for our stay. Marie-Noel was there to greet us, and acquaint us with the apartment and surrounding area. The neighborhood was wonderful for walking, and very convenient for shopping, transportation and sightseeing. Thank you, thank you!

We very much enjoyed our "sejour" in Paris & your apartment & we will definitely look to you again soon … In fact I am thinking about a "girl" trip this summer (Mother, daughter, granddaughter). We travel to Paris about once a year & always choose to rent an apartment – yours is simply delightful. We found it to be so very comfortable & well situated and we adored being so close to everything that we love most in Paris (and re-discovering rue Cler / rue de Grenelle shops/restaurants is always wonderful).
Suzanne- Ojai, CA
We loved the apartment and will stay there again .
Margaret G. – New York
We had a wonderful time and the apartment was perfect for us. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation and we loved walking to most of the sites in Paris. We really felt a part of the community and enjoyed having such a pretty and comfortable home to return to when we needed to rest or wanted a quiet meal at home.
Susan C – La Jolla, CA
We want to thank you for the quality apartment we stayed in last week with two of our grandchildren. It was everything you promised: comfortable, up-to-date appliances, fine sleeping spaces, and beautifully located, with many shops and restaurants, and two metro stations within easy walking distance.
Thank you again for helping to make our time in Paris so memorable.
Paul and Phyl S. - Washington
The apartment was indeed “charming, comfortable and in the perfect location”. We had a great time exploring the neighborhood, enjoying Paris and then coming home at the end of the day to our wonderful apartment. We especially loved the proximity of rue Cler market where we shopped and then cooked in your really well equipped kitchen. We have rented several times before in Paris and this was by far our best experience. We plan a return trip ASAP – a bientot,

Thank you for sharing your delightful apartment with us – we had a wonderful stay on rue Duvivier. The apartment was beautifully furnished and very comfortable (the bedrooms were great). The location was perfect, both stylish and very friendly to our family. We enjoyed many of the ideas you offered and the playground under the Eiffel Tower was a big hit for all 4 of us. I can understand why your guests return so often … we hope to be among your regulars.
Timothy F. – San Francisco, CA
We found the whole experience from booking through arrival very stress-free, and were more than satisfied with the apartment. We can't say enough about its location. The binder of information, the guidebooks, the tips from the hosts were all very helpful. This is truly the way to go in Paris. We missed the apartment after we left and were traveling through Italy.
Ruri Y. - Seattle, WA
We had a wonderful visit to Paris! Our accommodations were lovely, and very comfortable. Everything was arranged perfectly for our stay. Our greeter was there to meet us and acquaint us with the beautiful apartment and surrounding area. The neighborhood was wonderful for walking, and very convenient for shopping, transportation and sightseeing. Thank you, thank you!
Jeanine M. – Seattle, WA
We stayed in Champ de Mars apt. Everything was lovely, great location, clean, easy! Marie Nicole was wonderful and friendly. We'd stay again next time we go to Paris. Booking via the internet, I am always a little apprehensive until we see the place. This met all of our expectations and helped make a great trip even better.
Allison H. - Houston, TX
We really enjoyed the apartment. It was very quiet most of the time and very comfortable. Everyone concerned was helpful and friendly … Wish we could have stayed longer. The location of the apartment was perfect. Thanks for contributing to our wonderful vacation in Paris!
Billy O. – Columbus, OH
This apartment was a great value for the money in a great location. Your “greeter” was very prompt, friendly and helpful. An Excellent Experience!
Russell R. - Whitehouse, TX
Nous sommes retournes de Paris!! We had an absolutely fabulous time. I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our apartment on the rue Duvivier. It was charming and clean, and really could not have been better situated. It was an effortless trip. Our transportation was waiting for us at the airport, and helped us with all our heavy luggage. Your greeter was waiting for us at the apartment, and could not have been nicer. We only called her once, for directions, which were flawless. We are very impressed with your operation, and will definitely recommend you to any of our friends who are travelling to Paris. We look forward to the "next time!" Merci beaucoup encore,
Karen & David R. – Silver Springs, MD
We had a very nice stay. The apartment is charming and the location was so close to rue Cler shops, the green space at the Champ de Mars, extremely convenient buses and an extensive range of restaurants and museums.
Barbara G – Tokyo, Japan
Thank you for sharing your very special apartment with us! From your first reply to my inquiry to our departure for home, it was a perfect experience. The apartment is charming, comfortable and in an incredible location. We loved the art deco style but especially as everything was so comfortable and we could really relax after a busy day of touring. We wish that our two week stay could have been even longer and we are already planning to return next year!

Perfect is the word that comes to mind – we loved the apartment, location, furniture, everything down to the dishes! Thanks for helping to make our family vacation so special.
Sarah W. and family – Greenwich, CT
We had a wonderful time staying in “our” apartment in Paris. We loved everything about the accommodations including the beds, kitchen and living room. We had our daughter, her husband and their child with us for one of our weeks there and the set-up was perfect. We also entertained several Parisian friends, who all loved your place. We hope to return again and will definitely be in touch as soon as we have our dates.

As you know, we love the apartment and the location - we are all itching to get back to Paris! I was wondering if your apartment is available for April 1-8th?
