We spent 10 days at the Grande Chaumiere loft and were very pleased with it. The location is excellent (right next to the metro, five minute walk to Luxembourg gardens) and the loft itself was very spacious, in excellent condition, with great traditional views of Paris rooftops. As well, Vicky made it exceptionally easy for us to pick up the keys, and was very relaxed and accomodating in arranging a meeting to provide her with the rent check. She could not have made it easier for us.
Considering the price, the excellent quality and spaciousness of the apartment, and the ease by which Vicky arranged everything, I would never stay at a hotel when visiting Paris, but would always rent through Vicky. I can highly recommend her to anyone.
With best regards,  Naomi

My family (wife, two college age daughters and one teenager son) stayed at GRANDE CHAUMIERE apartment for 13 days. This was our second trip to Paris for me and wife. We enjoyed the stay very much. It is a very new and clean apt with new everything (furniture, bath & kitchen). The owner, Vicky, met us when we arrived at the apt from the airport. When I did not have enough cash to pay for the apt rent due to the ATM daily limitation, she just told me to bring the rest next day to her apt. She even brought an extra bed for my son.
My family visited her apt twice and had one long conversation about France, US and politics with roated chestnuts. What a treat!!! She told us to where to shop and where to go to eat. She sent me several e-mail on concerts and Paris information. She was like my own personal travel agent.
The apt building has old charm character. If you are 4 start hotel type, do not stay here. However, if you want to experience Paris, this is the place to stay. Shop at ED market where grocery is cheaper than US (hard to believe). I and my kids shoped at ED almost everyday to sample French food and deserts. We even tried French tripe soup.
The Edgar metro station is only one two blocks from the apt. There is morning farmers market on Saturday and Wed. There are also some shops selling custome jerwely there for French. My wife and daughters spent a few hundred dollars since price was very reasonable. You do not pay tourist price there. We bought light lunch (roasted chiken, pork and seafood rice, ham, cheese) there and ate at any part bench we could find in Paris.
We used Grey shuttle (one recommanded by the apt owner) for airport transportation which was cheaper than hiring two taxes for a family of 5 and 5 big luggages. For return trip to air port, a Mercedes van showed up with a driver in three piece suite. He told us that the apt was in an excellent area of the Paris. He also told us that he spend last four day driving Kim Basinger in Paris for a movie production in the same van.
I would like to thank Vicky for the excellent stay. If you want to taste Paris, this apt will get you there.

We had a great two weeks staying in Vicky's La Coupole apartment in Montparnasse, which is now our favorite Paris neighborhood. It's ideally located on a small, quiet street right of Boulevard Montparnasse. Everything you need to survive in Paris is within a couple of blocks of the apartment: Metro stops, boulangeries, brasseries, cafés, several great creperies, cinemas, markets (especially a great INNO/Monoprix store), and department stores if you run out of clothes. If you don't have a cell phone, you can easily purchase a phone card at the Tabac around the corner. Vicky is a great hostess and the apartment was a clean and cozy home away from home. We're looking forward to our next trip there, and are recommending La Coupole to all our friends. (Vicky also showed us her La Grande Chaumiere apartment a couple of blocks away, which is even more charming and pleasant.) Thanks again for helping us have the best vacation ever!
