Notre Dame Alley
||Upscale 2BD-1BA Vacation rental apt
What our previous guests are saying about their stay:
"Very comfortable with a fantastic location!"
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with a two week trip to Paris and chose Notre Dame alley for our stay.
The service we received from my initial call to Paris for Rent, to the day we checked in was terrific! Our contact at PFR was very helpful in selecting the right property and location for our lifestyle and interests. Upon arrival at the apartment, we were greeted by a local PFR contact, who was very helpful in directing us to some great local dining, as well as keeping us from wasting our money at the tourist trap restaurants. (Try Le Coup Chou, about a 5 minute walk) Even the building manager, Jiminy, was extremely friendly and helpful. He doesn't speak much English and my French is limited. Our conversations were somewhat limited, but he tried to help every day as best he could...he was great and made the trip more memorable.
The home itself was very comfortable. The living room and first bedroom were both quite spacious by Paris standards. The second bedroom is tight, but was just perfect for escaping when one of us had too much wine and snored a little too loudly.
The apartment looks out to courtyards from both bedrooms and the living room. The kitchen is small, but more than adequate for our needs. Note that this area has any apartment food you desire within 2 blocks. There are 3 nice Boulangeries, a mini grocery store, fish market, cheese market, wine store and more all within 90 seconds of the front door. Not to mention that 90 seconds the other way puts at the back of Notre Dame. Most important about this location...you are in a very quiet area, but very close to multiple restaurants, bars, sights, etc. It really was the perfect location.
The only thing that was lacking was in the bathroom. While there was ample room for two people and plenty of closet space, the shower is really small and not very functional. (A large person will struggle mightily)
Overall, this was a wonderful apartment and I would highly recommend it.

"A wonderful place to live while visiting a wonderful city"
My husband and I spent a memorable week in Notre Dame Alley apartment. It was, light, bright, comfortable, immaculate and spacious by any standard. It is well furnished and equipped. Everything worked without a hitch. The street is narrow and primarily pedestrian with only an occasional car slowly going by. The apartment looks just like the photos. We could open those beautiful windows day or night and not hear any street noise. Down the street one way is the Seine and the other way is Blvd. St Germain where we found food, wine and cheese shops to meet all our needs. There's a street market there three times a week. The taxi stand is two blocks away and the metro, three. The apartment is on the second (US) floor with an elevator, but we easily used the one flight of stairs. Paris for Rent was a dream to work with. My representative, Pat, was knowledgeable about each apartment we discussed. They do the transaction in dollars and by credit card. It couldn't be more simple. We used their car service to and from the airport. We were met at the apartment by Frederic, who took lots of time showing us how everything worked, including the door lock, setting up the wifi for the computer and reminding us that calls to the USA were free. Can't wait to go back.
