My wife, 9-yr old daughter, and I stayed at “The Walls…” for three nights in February and it was fabulous! The apartment was very charming and comfortable. The location was unbeatable. Our host, Emmanuelle was communicative, helpful, and also charming. Thank you for the champagne!

Entering the courtyard, it’s easy to imagine yourself a Parisian, returning home. The hustle of the Latin Quarter is left outside the door and it is strangely quiet. You walk up the stone steps which while many, are a gradual, not steep climb up to the apartment. You unlock your door and the apartment is welcoming and cozy. The kitchen has everything you need for a meal there (which we took advantage of one evening), or at least for fresh brewed coffee in the morning as you contemplate your day. The sitting area was cozy so that we could discuss our day about Paris and then it became our daughter’s comfortable sleeping area at bedtime. The bedroom had a King bed which was very comfortable and with plenty of storage space for clothing. WiFi was a welcome addition, especially with so many hotels charging for it these days. It was a relaxing space! “The Walls…” is a great apartment for a couple or a family with up to 2 young children.

And location, location, location! “The Walls…” is near the Cluny, Sorbonne, Pantheon, and Notre Dame. We walked a lot (and saw a lot) but there is a Metro nearby, as well as the Batobus, a boat that cruises the Seine and stops at major tourist destinations. A market is around the corner for meats and cheeses. There are a lot of places to eat in the area so it’s a matter of taste and preference but something for everyone. We enjoyed a recommendation from Emmanuelle for lunch as well as finding our own hidden gems for dinner. If you’ve always wanted to experience the Left Bank and still have access to all that Paris has to offer, I couldn’t think of a better place to base oneself than “The Walls…”

Wonderful place for a stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Emmanuelle's apartment for a 5 night stay in Paris, and it was absolutely perfect. The apartment is a great size for two people with a separate bedroom from the kitchen/living area. The bathroom is a very good size with a very nice shower. It has great WiFi access, and it has all of the things we needed to make the stay a great one (hairdryer, kitchen supplies, etc). It was clean, well-furnished, and had plenty of everything we needed (towels, toilet paper, etc).

The location cannot be beat--it's literally a five to seven minute walk to St. Michel - Notre Dome Metro/train stop which means a direct route to CDG airport as well as multiple metro lines. There are lots of great restaurants right around the block - I highly recommend the bistro right next door. Great food, great atmosphere, great people.

Many thanks to Emmanuelle for accommodating us for the stay. She was very responsive to our emails leading up to the visit, and she was very flexible when we missed our flight connection and arrived later than planned.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Paris.

A lovely Parisian apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Emmanuelles' lovely apartment in the Latin Quarter - a quiet, safe haven in an an apartment building in the heart of Paris right near the Sorbonne. We had plenty of space, a lovely shower, and Emmanuelle was a very gracious host. We spent three days wandering the city, walking to the Metro just around the corner from the apartment....discovering a delicious crepe place just on the other side of the street....and enjoying the many restaurants, gardens, and sights in the city. The apartment was perfectly situated, very well appointed and extremely well kept. The stairway up to the apartment kept us in shape! Thank you Emmanuelle - we would love to return!

What you see is what you get. Amazing experience and location from A to Z. Yes there is 75 steps, but this is Paris !

It's safer and super quiet even with the windows open. Thanks for the nice touch with the bottle of Chanpagne.

Than again. Will be back soon.

Amazing...A touch of true Parisian life!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I (from Canada) stayed at "The Walls..." from Sept. 14th until Sept. 23rd, 2016. It was such a memorable experience that we would return in the blink of an eye on our next trip to Paris! Emmanuelle met us at the time of our arrival, introduced us to the apartment and gave us precious information regarding eating out nearby. She also helped us with RER, metro, bus & taxi directions for our days to come. Also, she was readily available if ever we had any problems or needed some advice. She made us feel extremely at home!

We couldn't have had a better location in Paris - the Latin Quarter. We could walk to Notre Dame in 5 minutes to admire its constant beauty, have a stroll along the Seine or head to The Louvre for the afternoon. A Metro station was a 5-minute walk away, as was a great market along Rue St. Germain. We shopped there often to stock up on fresh fruit, vegetables, a varitey of meats & cheeses & fresh fish (our weakness!). Not to mention a well-stocked wine shop. What's more to want?! Her apartment is also a stone's throw from the Sorbonne, the Pantheon & the Jardin de Luxembourg - which kept us busily relaxed the day before our departure.

The apartment itself was true to the photos - gracious & spacious. The bathroom was the best we'd had in our visit to France! The kitchen was well-equipped and very clean, the living area accomodated our moments of relaxation & meals, and the bedroom was comfortable & quiet with lots of space to organize clothes. She left us extras of everything we could possibly need. We very much appreciated the cold bottle of champagne that Emmanuelle offered upon arrival, especially because it was my husband's birthday - and it was an excellent champagne!

We would highly recommend "The Walls..." to friends, family - anyone wanting to spend some safe & comfortable time visiting Paris. Actually, we will book with Emmanuelle again when we are in Paris again!
