Special and unique women and their tribes and or families, are welcome to a grand and gorgeous historic home in Paris; this antique luxury-end Parisian B&B apartment on the Seine river .
Located in a historically listed building featured in many Parisian history books and magazines, our 2 bedroom apartment within, is only one of 3 apartments in this exclusive family owned building. Delphine, your interesting and refined hostess is one of the family heirs to this building and lives right upstairs. She promises an exclusive stay indeed, in an impeccably presented home with enchanting traditional features you dream of when you think of Parisian classic apartments, thoughtful style with the furnishings, spaciousness and sunlight that add a wonderful feel and warming energy to the home. This is a place you will feel right at home in.
Delphine was once a jockey, and you can see it as soon as you arrive, an athletic small and well poised Parisian hostess who is friendly but firm, oh so French! When you get through the introductions, she is as gentle as a 'yearling', open-minded and very present. She is a very accommodating, attentive and generous lady too making sure you are always happy in her home. However it should be noted that Delphine is more of a 'hands-off' hostess, preferring to leave guests to their own devices and privacy after check-in, though she is always, always happy to pop down and assist her guests should they ever need anything. Women travelers who seek the comfort and security of having a women hostess right next door, someone to aide and assist should they ever need it, can feel assured this is not an empty apartment rental where you are left unsupported, Delphine is like family, just upstairs, yet you are living completely independently, like a local. This is Delphine's real family home, decorated to show her love of horses and the Jockey profession as seen in all the art works in the home.
Delphine is an elderly lady in her late 50s and she loves to indulge in the usual Parisian sport of Cafe sitting; strike up a conversation and she may invite you to a local cafe for a lovely afternoon chat.

Comment: We divided our stay in Paris into two parts, first a Right Bank small hotel and then Left Bank this apartment. Both fabulous and couldn't be more different. This is old Paris, and real, and marvelous. Probably the most perfect location in Paris. Delphine was so helpful, great throughout in communication, and Alexandre who did our pre-shopping and who let us in was delightful. Know that it's not new and it's not *hotel* glamorous; if that's what you want look elsewhere. But this is much better than that. Beds are very comfortable. Delphine is wonderful about having someone meet you with supplies, but be specific with your needs. We forgot to say paper towels and bath soap, but everything we did ask for was there and just right. Do yourself a favor and come. The stairs are fine! We'll definitely be back.

Comment: We loved this 2 bedroom apartment. It was only a block from St. Michel metro station and also an easy walk to many different sights and restaurants. You can't beat this location! After reading previous reviews and seeing that there would be a lot of steps to climb, I decided to pack lighter and take advantage of the washing machine in the apartment! The steps really weren't an issue. The apartment did not have air conditioning, but there were 3 fans and large windows that provided a good breeze. We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely stay here again.

Comment: We so enjoyed our stay at Delphine's place. The location is amazing. It's close to so many wonderful neighborhoods in Paris. The home is warm and cozy and very comfortable (especially in the cold fall/winter in Paris). The stairs have not been an issue and actually provide great daily exercise as does all of the walking around the city. And, importantly for us, we've found Delphine to be a true pleasure to work with. She's responsive, honest, helpful and made us feel very welcome! We would happily return.

Comment: This flat is right where we wanted to stay while in Paris for 4 days in August. Our family of 4 felt safe and the surrounding neighborhood soon became familiar and had so much to see and do. We had no problems letting our teenage kids wander the neighborhood without us. The stop for the Big Bus (hop on and off) is very close, as is the Metro station. Upon arrival via the train from London, we took the Metro and walked to the flat with luggage. It was very easy! We walked to the Louvre and other nearby sights. Thank you for the stay!

Comment: We were very happy to stay at Delphine's place in Paris. The location was excellent and could not have been any better for us. The apartment was great. An older charming Paris apartment in a beautiful older building right on the Seine. Perfect! Delphine was great in responding to our questions and needs. When there was a problem with the TV she was right on it to fix it immediately. We had a fantastic time and I was happy to renew visiting my old haunts from the past. All in all the experience was wonderful. You made it easy for me with your concern and keeping in touch. We would definitely use Delphine again for our next trip to Paris and would use your service and recommend it to anyone we know who is thinking of renting an apartment in Paris. Thanks again for your help in placing us there. A bien tot!
