Virginie is a lovely person and the stay was unforgettable! We enjoyed it and definitely recommend it!
Mio marito ed io abbiamo trascorso quattro giorni nel bell'appartamento di Virginie e abbiamo apprezzato molto l'esperienza. Virginie è molto ospitale e pronta ad aiutarti con informazioni anche se molto discreta and we had our own privacy e totale libertà durante il nostro soggiorno. L'appartamento è vicinissimo al metro e a pochi minuti a piedi dalla Gare du Nord in una via molto vivace e piena di ristoranti, bar e negozi. Non possiamo che raccomandare vivamente Virginie come ospite. Grazie ancora Virginie.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Virginie was a delightful hostess. She was very warm, friendly, and helpful. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The location is very convenient to public transportation and there are lots of specialty shops and restaurants nearby.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour et Virginie nous a réservé un accueil très chaleureux.
Ms. Virginie is a nice host who is kind and friendly. The room is nice too, so I can say that a person will be able to stay there without stress. And if you are a jazz fan, only 10 sec from a very good jazz bar "New Morning"! Only one thing I did not like was loud music by people in the area till around 2:00 (3:00?) once on weekend while I was there. The area is popular at night, so I did not care about talking at the bars and restaurants, but "not-good" music was not welcomed.
Couldn't have asked for a better host or appartment. Highly recommend.
Merci encore Virginie! À bientôt j'espère
Really nice apartment, and Virginie was an exceptional host - friendly and flexible beyond the call.
Virginie...is a lovely host who gives you 100% freedom during your stay...we stayed for 02nights and it was convenient, comfortable and reliable stay.... Thanks Virginie....looking forward to introduce you to my friends for future travels....
Virgine was the perfect Host. Emails were responded to quickly. We had a great stay in Paris at her apartment. Though we shared her home we had our own privacy .The apartment is located off a busy street, close to metros however there is no noise when the windows are shut. Will definitely stay here on our next visit to paris!
My daughter and I had a really great stay with Virginie who is a delight. She welcomes you into her comfortable home, makes sure you have everything you need and hits just the right balance between "happy to chat" and giving you space. Our bedroom was exactly as in the pictures, very comfy bed, lots of wardrobe space, and good wifi. The kitchen is well kitted out and breakfast was perfect: lots of fruit, cereals, yogurts and delicious jams. I got a bit over excited that she had bothered to get Poilâne bread - the best! You can cook if you want but we only had 3 days so we ate at the pizza place opposite - really fantastic pizza, got some amazing cheese from the artisan fromagerie which has just opened down the street, had delicious tapas at La Cerise Bleu in the little courtyard where Brasserie Flo is and got fab fresh fruit from the grocer's opposite the flat. Actually the best out of season strawberries I've ever had which were called gariguette. Just go!
