Comment: I had a wonderful stay, Antonella greeted me with a wine while we had a chat to get to know each other. She couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating, giving me recommendations for the area. Le Marais was so vibrant and felt so safe as a solo female, walking home at night was not a problem.

Comment: Bonjour, We had a lovely stay at Antonella’s Apartment.. The area is close to shops restaurants, the Metro and various cultural sights. The apartment is very clean & spacious. We were conscious of keeping everything nice & in good order. The bed is comfortable & it was special having the courtyard garden to look out onto. Antonella was very gracious & helpful. Thank you Susanna

Comment: My time in Paris was made even more special because of Antonella! Her hospitality went far beyond being a paid house guest as I was included in many aspects of Antonella's Parisian life that I would not have experienced as a tourist. Antonella is the perfect host if you are looking for a personal stay living with a local in a gorgeous apartment complete with a courtyard garden and Mississipi, the cat! The location was ideal as I could walk to all of my favourite places - Notre Dame, River Seine, Shakespeare & Co Bookstore and Antonella's many recommendations. Antonella even took me on a walking tour of some of her own favourite places. We shared many happy times, laughter, delicious French and Italian meals as well as our mutual love of Prosecco and Aperol Spritz's I can highly recommend Antonella, her home, the location and of course Paris. I will definitely be returning!!

Comment: I had the most wonderful stay at Apartment Antonella. I felt so welcomed and comfortable there. Plus Antonella and her family and friends were amazing. The location is so convenient and close to so many shops and restaurants. And the view of the hidden garden is beautiful. I would recommend this apartment to anyone and everyone as a great place to stay. And don't forget to give Mississippi the cat some attention while you are there, she makes a nice friend to come home to every night.
