>We had a wonderful time in Paris, and the welcome and charm of the apartment added to this immeasurably. The fresh flowers were a lovely homey touch, and the cold Heineken in the fridge after a hot and stressful day were heaven sent. (We did replace them!) The apartment is perfectly located, and exploring the cobbled streets in the area was a favourite pastime. We tended to eat out at lunch as we were on the go and none of our food experiences were worth noting. We enjoyed coming home and relaxing with wine and dinner for a couple of hours, and then strolling in the long June evenings. We found the grocery store of the Bon Marché had a wonderful selection of delicious offerings for each course, and a quick reheat produced a very satisfying meal for us.
Thank you for your attention to detail. Your information package about the apartment and area was extremely helpful and much appreciated. We did have trouble with the television and could only get the menu page at the end of the week although we tried to reset the freebox. We did not heed your advice and tried to use the airport shuttle service (Beeline in Frommer’s). Thirty-five minutes after the appointed time (7:30 a.m. on Saturday so not the height of rush hour) they had still not arrived even after we phoned 3 times and they assured us they were on route and only minutes away. We ended up in a cab from in front of St. Paul metro and things went smoothly from there. (Cab was 40 euros, only 6 more euros than the shuttle, although we read that a cab would be much more.)
Again, we thank you for your assistance.
