Thibaut and Alexandra have a wonderful, beautiful, and clean apartment! The apartment itself is spacious, bright, and airy. I am used to the apartments in Europe being very compact, so I was delighted when we arrived how large, open, and modern their apartment was, but how it still captured that classic Parisian feeling. The apartment was very clean and nicely organized, everything from the kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom. The location of their apartment is amazing. It is in a safe neighborhood with everything you need for a perfect stay nearby. The Louvre and Les Halles (both also house Metro stops) are about a 5-10 minute walk, there a bunch of restaurants just steps away, supermarkets and smaller markets are nearby, some just a block over, and there's a pharmacy literally right across the street. Also have to note that my favorite boulanger, Eric Kayser, is about a 10 minute walk, and completely worth it to enjoy delicious fresh bread everyday. While it is on a popular street/neighborhood, we did not have much issue with noise. For the most part, we would keep the windows open to enjoy fresh air and the normal street noise was no bother to us, except for one night when a bunch of drunk Euro Cup fans were yelling and singing as they walked down the street. Thibaut and Alexandra are truly great hosts. Right when we booked our stay, I sent a bunch of questions to Thibaut for recommendations and advice for our trip and he graciously answered all of them! They weren't there to greet us when we arrived due to them being on holiday, but they left a nice note and chocolates to welcome us and sent us a short helpful document with instructions on how to open and close the door (which helped a lot with a little bit of practice), how to use the radio, how to connect to wifi, etc. Whenever we had questions throughout our stay, they were quick and responsive via email and text. I cannot thank them enough for opening their beautiful home to us and for being such wonderful hosts. The next time we plan a trip to Paris, we would definitely love to stay at Thibaut and Alexandra's place again (I just hope it's available), so we highly recommend booking with them!
