I am always available by phone or email to answer all questions. We will meet each other to exchange keys and guests will be given a quick orientation of how everything works in the apartment. I also leave a very detailed binder with neighborhood recommendations to restaurants, shops, etc...
It is the best part of Paris in my opinion, lively and vibrant, yet it retains a very local feel.
Please read House Rules first. If you think we are a good match then drop me a note with some info about yourself and the purpose of your visit to Paris. I will answer very promptly, usually within a few hours.I will also need your arrival and departure times at booking, as we need to make advance arrangement to give you keys. I often have to be at appointments throughout the day, and need to clear my schedule in advance to meet you.The check in and out time is a guideline, but I am fairly flexible if there are no guests departing or arriving on the same day of your check in or out.Guest Access
