J.P.

Thank you for a wonderful Parisian experience - what a joy to be able to be here in such a great location! Easy to find everything one could possibly want!

You're going to have to come to California sometime! We so appreciated your apartment and indulged in the movies. Your explanation book was brillant! Great instructions.



We experienced many great things but the ease of living here for 9 days was what made it all the more enjoyable. How lucky to be in such a vibrant city!

Thank you again,

Au Revoir,

Great, well-located Paris apartment

  • 5 of 5
Me, my wife and two sons stayed here for 5 nights in February. The apartment is ideally located and, despite being in the heart of a bustling part of town, very quiet. There is a nice courtyard and the street on which it's located had many good shops and restaurants. We walked all over the city from here. As one would expect of a city apartment, it is smallish but perfectly adequate. We enjoyed the movie collection and watched several films that were all listed with descriptions in a big binder. Instructions for everything were detailed, and the WIFI worked perfectly. No one showed up at the appointed time to check us out on the last day, which added some stress, but was not a big deal. John-Pierre was very accessible by email even though he was traveling. Overall, this was a great stay and I would definitely recommend this apartment.

GREAT LOCATION FOR PARIS VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Jean-Pierre was a most welcoming host and very helpful as I had arrived in Paris with severe Bronchitis and he organized a Doctor to visit in a very short time - Thank you Jean-Pierre. The apartment was clean, comfortable and contained everything my Daughter and I needed for our stay. The location was fantastic with access to transport close by and a great range of restaurants nearby.Jean-Pierre also arranged fro a taxi to pick us up on the morning we departed. All in all a very comfortable and convenient Paris vacation.

Perfect Location, Fantastic Host, Great Value, Quiet Comfortable Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We have rented several apartments throughout the world through VRBO and our experience in Paris at Jean-Pierre's was one of the best. We arrived in Paris at 09:00 on the overnight train from Milan and since there was no one booked in the apartment the night before, Jean-Pierre advised us to come right over from the train station (a 12 Euro cab ride from Gare de Lyons) and he would be there to greet us for the check in. His information package on the apartment is complete and easy to follow and he carefully went through all the essential information so we were set for the week. A large bowl of fresh fruit and a litre of fruit juice was a very nice added touch to welcome us to Paris.

Within a liesurely 5-10 minute walk, we could reach the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Museé de Cluny (Medieval Museum), the Sorbonne University, Museé Delacroix and the Luxembourg Gardens. Within a 20 minute walk, we could reach Museé d'Orsay, Museé du Louvre, Museé des Arts Décoratifs, and Museé de l'Orangerie. And with a Metro stop 3 minutes away, we could get anywhere we wanted to go in Paris once we figured out it how it worked (it really is quite easy).

The apartment is located on the ground level (no stairs) in a courtyard right in the heart of the Latin Quarter. This area is very busy at night, which is part of the fun of staying in the Latin Quarter. There is considerable noise from the nearby restaurants into the wee hours of the morning, yet we heard absolutely no street noise from inside the apartment. We were visiting Paris during the second week of August and were concerned about the heat, especially since air conditioning is very rare in Paris. However, the evenings were comfortably cool and we slept with the windows open and were not disturbed by any noise at all. The beds and leather couch in the living room are very comfortable and the apartment had everything we needed. A large supermarket is two minutes away and other amenities such as a post office, bank, pharmacy and Lebanese, Crepe and other takeout and dine-in restaurants are even closer.

We highly recommend Jean-Pierre's apartment for its location, comfort, fantastic value and the friendliness of the host.

Quiet retreat in the heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5
Four of us (2 adult couples) spent five days at J-P's Latin Quarter apartment in early June. The apartment is small, but very efficiently laid out so it seems bigger than its dimensions suggest. It's on the ground floor, so no stairs to negotiate. And it faces on an interior courtyard so, despite being on a very busy street (busy with pedestrians, not cars), it is very quiet inside. The place has everything a group of 4 could need for an extended stay, including an extensive library of books and movies, wifi, washer AND dryer, dishwasher, etc. It is within an easy walk to all the restaurants, boulangeries, markets, etc that you could possibly need, and to all of the central sites, like Notre Dame, the Louvre, and Luxumbourg Gardens. The owner, J-P, was quick to respond to my many emails prior to arrival, and met us at the apartment at the pre-arranged time with a gift of wine, water and fruit. Thanks J-P, for providing us the opportunity for a wonderful stay in Paris!

Perfect location - simple but functional

  • 4 of 5
This apartment was perfect for a family of 4. It was simple and cozy, as the title suggests and very well located for exploring all over Paris, or just staying close by in the Quartier Latin. We ate in for several meals and the kitchen was appropriately sized. There was noise transference between the two bedrooms, the dryer was not working and a number of the lights in the bathroom were burned out, but these were minor problems and otherwise we had a smooth stay. Jean-Pierre was very helpful and kindly accommodated our early arrival. We also found lots of helpful information for our stay, in the pamphlets and binders Jean-Pierre supplied. The apartment would typically be quiet, except that renovation work was going on in the building at the time of our stay, so we did have construction work in the mornings. We would absolutely stay here again, as it met our needs and our budget.

Owner's Response: Dear Heather,
I apologize for the renovation work which tainted your stay at my place. It was scheduled to be finished by your time of arrival, but was unduly delayed. If you choose to come again, please mention this exchange of review and response, and I will give you a discount.
Best regards and happy new year.
Jean-Pierre
