Great Apt. - Great Location
This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. Beautiful apartment in a great location. Joseph is an excellent host. Spacious with excellent amenities.
Beautiful property and very accommodating host. It is in the heart of the 8th and you can walk to lots of key sights as well as restaurants, shops, etc. The place looks like something out of a classic film set in Paris! Thank you, Joseph.
Spacious and comfortable
Glad to have found this lovely, spacious, quiet, comfortable, well-equipped, -furnished, and -maintained apartment in the luxe 8th. Central and convenient location near transportation (metro and bus) and shopping on Champs Élysées and surrounding streets. We would happily return here on future visits.
Pluses: large eat-in kitchen with quality full-size appliances (and Nespresso machine!), very large well-decorated living room, comfortable bed in master bedroom, adequate closet space in bedroom and living room, two bathrooms (master bath tight on space), nice rainforest shower, plenty of hot water, elevator, good building security, great neighborhood. Owner representative met us and explained operations.
Minor negatives: glitch with alarm system (low battery on a sensor?) meant sporadic beeping during two different nights (muffled that with pillows -- didn't interfere with sleep), heavy incense odor on arrival (eliminated problem by by stowing the dozens of incense sticks in a drawer and running a little water into shower drain trap), towels apparently not tumble-dried (stiff and scratchy), elevator very small (typical for older Paris buildings).
FYI: on the weekends before and after (but not during) our visit (late Dec - early Jan), the "gilets jaunes" protestors were demonstrating and/or rioting in Paris. The apartment is near the Élysée Presidential Palace, so during our stay, heavily-armed but friendly police were posted at nearby corners. Steel barricades were stored on sidewalks at every intersection, ready for deployment but not used. Banks of armored personnel carriers were parked near major squares. A few luxury store windows were plywood-covered. Fortunately, restaurants and museums were all open and busy, and evenings on the Champs Élysées were marvelously crowded with thousands of eager tourists and peaceful locals. Trouble has been confined to Saturdays, so we elected to not cancel our visit, and are glad we came!
Recommendations nearby: restaurant À la Châtaigne (Corsican) a half-block east -- wonderful cuisine and service, moderately priced; Musée Jacquemart-André, a mansion a few blocks to the northwest with rotating special exhibits.
Perfect Parisienne Getaway!
We loved this luxurious and elegant apartment, in the heart of Paris. We walked everywhere, even the week leading up to Christmas! We arrived on a Saturday evening just after the Yellow Jackets demonstrated, and there was no evidence of trouble anywhere. We felt safe and secure! The only negative is the small shower in the bedoom. The entire apartment is architecturally stunning with beautiful antiquities throughout. The living room could be a little less formal and a little more comfortable, but all in all a wonderful experience.
Wonderful apartment and warm hospitality!
We had a delightful stay in this lovely, clean, well-maintained apartment in the heart of the 8th arrondissement of Paris. From before our arrival, the communication with the owner and staff was excellent, responsive, and helpful. We received proactive communication to encourage our safety with the recent demonstrations, which we did by spending the day very comfortably and safely within the residence.. We had no difficulty with access to the apartment or to transportation from there to other sites around the city. We look forward to staying here again in the future!!
Beautifully appointed comfortable apartment.
This apartment is beautifully appointed with antiques with an up to date fully equipped kitchen. It is located in a quiet area, close to major attractions with a nearby metro station.
We did not meet the owner Jacob, either at the beginning, or during our stay and felt as a consequence that the handover when we arrived was not as informative as we had been led to expect. We were left to puzzle out a few things on our own. For example in the refrigerator and on the kitchen bench there was a range of wine and beer and a schedule listing the individual bottles and their price. When we checked we found there was little correlation between the schedule and the actual bottles of wine in the apartment. This caused us some unnecessary concern.
We enjoyed the apartment and just feel the meet and greet could have been better managed.
