Well we have been in our apt for 2 days. We are on the top floor and there is plenty of light (really important) on cloudy days. The kitchen is well equipped and we have a freezer as well as a fridge, dishwasher, wash machine (all "euro-style", aka small). The bathroom is small as are most french bathrooms. The folding toilet is unusual to say the least. Check out the photos below. For those not familiar with french showers it's small and can be a hand held shower. Our building is from the 1600's and the staircase is very worn so hold on to railings! It can be treacherous. It is 5 flights so pack lightly, if you can. If you have a heavy suitcase, we can offload some of the contents to our carry on bags to help lug it up the stairs. Our neighborhood is one of the oldest in Paris therefore cobblestones and narrow uneven sidewalks are everywhere. This is not the part of Paris with the Champs Elysees wide boulevard. I have been wearing my low healed boots constantly.
We have no "door bell", just the keyless entry so make sure you call us when you pick up your luggage to let us know you are on your way. Maybe the driver can call us with an eta or when you are in the neighborhood. He won't be able to park for long outside our building as it is a one lane narrow street.
Ok are you ready for an adventure? We look forward to seeing you very much!!!!
