Sabine's apartment is a wonderful base for exploring Paris. The building is very secure, so that one absolutely feels safe, and it's also very quiet. It offers easy access to bus lines and the metro, from which one can travel to anywhere in Paris. Sabine was an excellent host who went out of her way to make our stay pleasant and convenient. If I ever have the chance to return to Paris -- and I sure hope I do -- my first step will be to see if I can book Sabine's place again.
