This is a very comfortable, spacious, and well equipped apartment in a quiet and well maintained building on a quiet street. There are three bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with a trundle bed that makes two, and one with a foldout couch, so there's good deal of privacy possible if that's what you want. A spacious living/eating area, a spacious (for Paris) kitchen, a large bathroom and a separate toilet complete the apartment. It is nicely furnished as the owner has interesting and eclectic tastes in books, artifacts, and art, and the kitchen is more than adequate for cooking, with a new stove, a microwave, a dishwasher and--unusual in France--even a toaster! There are, though, many good places to eat nearby at reasonable prices, takeout as well as restaurants, and we never actually cooked a meal ourselves in the 10 days we were there. The neighborhood is interesting and diverse, the metro is only a few minutes away, and within a short walk are two parks relatively unknown to foreigner, the Buttes de Chaumont and the Parc Belleville, both offering vistas of urban greenery and spectacular views of the city more or less equal to those of Montmartre. This is real day-to-day Paris, unclogged with tourists and filled with people just going about their usual lives. The owner, Marianne LeChevalier, was extremely helpful, kind, and friendly to our daughter and granddaughter, who got to Paris before us and were welcomed by her (we actually never personally met), and both scrupulous and prompt in maintaining email contact with me. Though she and I mostly used French, and that's the language my daughter, whose fluent, used to converse with her, she does have substantial English and likes using it. Finally, there is an elevator, which was a very nice benefit since we didn't have to haul our luggage up any stairs and since I arrived with a bad knee. I'm ready to go back again, anytime. This was a great airbnb experience.
