Let me first say that my wife and I were travelling with our six children (aged eight to 19) and you cannot imagine our joy and relief when we found Harriet waiting at the apartment to welcome us! Although it shows a little more wear than the photos on the website indicate, the apartment is delightful and did not disappoint in any way. The plumbing is very good (I know that sounds typically American, but it was a blessing), the kitchen is more than adequate and the decor is beautiful. What shines even more than the apartment is the neighborhood itself. The Marais is a delight, full of numerous patisseries, shops, charcuteries and various other treats to be discovered. Harriet checked in on us via e-mail several times and also made a restaurant reservation for us. It was comforting to know that we had someone to contact in case of any circumstance. Our one regret was that we couldn’t stay longer.
