Paris with grandkids
The property has all we needed including washing machine and dryer. We eat in central Paris and did no cooking in the apt, grocery store about 2 blocks from apt. We were 2 adults and 3 teens. The metro is short walk from the apt. last on the metro line. You need to add 1 hour extra to your day for transfer to and from the apt to central Paris. It was not an issue for us. Very quiet area. Glad we choice this apt
Ideal for 5
Plenty of space. Close to Metro and shops and so much better fir family group than hotel rooms. Ideal greeting from host Daniel
Great location 2 blocks from the Mairie des Lilas Metro. Nice apartment with gated parking garage.
We stayed and took the Metro to go everywhere. We purchased the Navigo passes. The # 11 metro line terminates 2 blocks from the apartment, most of the tourist sites are about 30 minutes away, and almost anything can be reached with one transfer. The apartment is nice, has a functional kitchen, and a small washer/dryer set. We cooked our own breakfasts at the apartment, prepared a few picnic lunches, and one dinner. The main living area has doors and curtains, and with the sleeper sofa it easily became a fourth bedroom. There is an assigned space in the parking garage if you need a car for some reason. We did not need a car. We took the TGV to Tours and arranged for a rental car in Tours, It would have actually been a hassle to have a car in Paris for the most part. There is a big Carrefour supermarket 4 blocks away; there are a half dozen smaller grocers 1-2 blocks away, 2 regular butcher shops, a kosher butcher, several pastry shops, at least 2 chocolate shops, a few local pubs, and even a dominos pizza one block away. The location is fabulous. The back porch is peaceful and overlooks a quiet courtyard. The elevator from the ground floor opens right across from the apartment door.
When we arrived I callled Daniel and he met us at the entrance to the building. He showed us how to operate the doors and gave us a quick tour of the apartment. He is an excellent host.
The only suggestion I would have for Daniel is to make a laminated cheat sheet with instructions for the washer / dryer / and dishwasher. My teenagers speak French and I was able to use google translate and figure things out. The issue with the dryer is that it is simply different than what we use in the USA; it has a tank that captures moisture that you have to occasionally empty since the dryer has no external vent like we are used to. I suppose Daniel would not realize that this is different than what is standard in the US.
Thanks Daniel for letting us use your apartment, it was perfect for our needs.
Thank you for your comments that will allow us to improve the quality of the apartment. About the dryer, I will make sure that the user manual is available to future tenants.

FANTASTIC apartment - Home from Home
We Have been greeted by the owner on our arrival, showed us all the facilities and the access to the garage, the lady was lovely and friendly, she did show us key landmarks in the area, I must admit I was really surprised with how nice the area is "Mairie des Lilas" métro Line 11 is direct to the center of Paris, we had dinner one night at the "L'Olivier" it was fantastic, the apartment is spacious and well decorated and has everything you need for 6 people no probs, and has a real cosy feel - thank you Dominique and Daniel, will go again
Lovely and clean Apartment
Our trip to Paris was a really success, not at least because the accomodantion is clean and the support of the host was friendly
