Review 4994: Feels Like Home in Paris, Clair de Lune
2bed/1bath apartment in 18th arrondissement, Paris
April 2011, 1 week
The apartment was in a good location in Montmartre close to Sacre Coer, bus services and an easy walk to two train stations - Lamark/Caulaincort and Jules Joffrin. Close to cafes/restaurants, patisseries, boulangeries (bakery), fromageries (cheese and wine), supermarket, ATMs etc.
Bedrooms were spacious, had good storage space, comfortable beds (much better than those we encountered in Italy)and good linen. Kitchen is well appointed for self catering and includes a good size fridge, dishwasher, cooking facilities, coffee machine, washing machine and dryer. A welcome basket is also provided. The bathroom could do with an upgrade but was serviceable, with a separate toilet. Apartment also has central heating. Don't be put off by the faded exterior of the building and the foyer, the apartment was clean, well appointed and very comfortable.
It also had extras that we didnít expect like the laptop computer, free phone calls home to Australia (VOI), umbrellas, transport maps and travel guides. A guide to local walks in the area and recommended restaurants etc., is also provided.
This part of Montmarte gives you a taste of the real Paris rather than being in the really touristy areas. We really enjoyed our stay there, particularly the fresh chocolate croissants from the local patisseries each morning! Close to French cooking school for tourists, Cook ní with Class - our son did a dessert class there and really enjoyed it.
Yetunde and Elinor at Feels Like Home In Paris were great - answered all our queries during the booking stage and got back to us promptly (you just need to be mindful of the time difference when communicating). Yetunde was there to greet us when we arrived to show us how everything in the apartment worked and to answer any questions we had. Based on our experience I would definitely use FLHIP again to book an apartment, and stay at Clair de Lune again.
