“Julie and Yan are consummate hosts. Their beautiful bright 7th floor apartment is very well organised, attractive and extremely comfortable. It has glorious views of the city rooftops from the sitting room and flower filled balcony, towards the Pantheon. It is a quick walk to charming and lively Rue Mouffetard and to the Metro. It is easy to walk via Jardin du Luxembourg or Jardin des Plantes to the Seine and the islands and the right bank of the city. Julie is a prompt and efficient communicator. We found this a delightful exchange and would recommend anyone who loved being in central Paris to consider this opportunity, if it is made available to you. Thank you Julie and Yan -and please do come back to our cottage anytime. ”
Julie's reviewsAs a host (10)
“You could not find a better location in Paris. The apartment itself is beautifully appointed. We stayed with our 6-year old son and were very comfortable from the moment we walked in the door. The 5th is a perfect neighbourhood: excellent restaurants, bars, parks and transport just a walk away, and we received wonderful recommendations from Julie and Yan. They are the perfect hosts and I hope you're lucky enough to experience their impeccable hospitality sometime soon. ”
“Another totally perfect and wonderful stay. See our previous review. Thank you so much Yan & Julie. ”
“We did an unsymetric swap with Julie and we could not be more happy about it. The flat is in a perfect place in Paris and close to a street with super foods and wines. We planed to eat evening meals out, but ended up in her livingroom with the best of foods every evening after having strolled the streets of Paris all day. Nothing I would not recommend swapping with Julie. Flat was very nice and Cody too)”
“We were very lucky to be able to enjoy Julie and Yan's larger property in the south of France for this part of our swap. The property is picture perfect, just as you imagine the south to be in your dreams. Perfectly set up for our group, Julie and Yan ensured we had every comfort at our fingertips. If you have the opportunity to visit the south and stay at Julie and Yan's property, don't miss it. We hope we have the opportunity to return in future. ”
“This was a return trip to Yan and Julie's lovely Paris apartment. On this visit we stayed for an initial 9 days, and then a final 7 days, with a swap in their gorgeous country home in the middle (see our other review). It was almost one year since our first stay and we felt as though we were returning home, with Julie and Yan there to greet us. Again, all arrangements were perfectly set up, and we enjoyed the charm and comfort of the apartment and the delights of the area all over again. It is really a wonderful place to stay in Paris - this time, we wandered further afield around Paris, discovered more great local walks and cafes and restaurants and boulangeries and food shops, and even walked to one of the three local cinemas one rainy Sunday afternoon. In another life, we might just have to live here! Thank you Yan and Julie. ”
“For this part of our swap with Julie and Yan, they offered their gorgeous country home, in a tiny village in the Gard region of Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France. It was an absolute delight to stay there. The large house is so comfortable and so charmingly decorated, with many sitting places inside and out, and a pool for the hot afternoons. We loved waking up to the church bells and the view across the garden, and eating outside on the downstairs terrace. There are many lovely villages to explore nearby, including Lussan and St-Quentin-la-Poterie, as well as the beautiful town of Uzès, which is 20 minutes drive away with everything you need including many restaurants and cafes. Slightly further afield but still close are Nîmes, Avignon, Pont du Gard, and into Provence. The only hardship is tearing youself away from the gorgeous house! Thank you so much. ”
“My wife & I spent the last week on June 2018 in julie’s Apartment our son joined us for a weekend the apartment is high , bright , airy , beautifully decorated and super comfortable the beds & couches excellent. The area is convenient and very interesting. The fruit , cheese & sea food stalls are stunning ! Julie is a fine host who is most kind & helpful the open balcony proved a great asset. We had breakfast there & a drink in the evening the apartment is beautifully airy & bright. We loved our week! ”
“We had a truly wonderful week staying in Yan and Julie's Paris apartment. The apartment itself was perfect - spacious, full of light, charmingly furnished and totally comfortable. We loved looking past the outdoor balcony full of plants and over the rooftops to the dome of the Panthéon. We also loved the central location, with a great local feel, right by the pedestrianised rue Mouffetard, 5 minutes walk to the metro (Censier-Daubenton on Line 7), and surrounded by great food shops, cafés and restaurants. Most days we began by walking – to the Latin Quarter and on to the St Germain area, or to Île St Louis and on to the Marais and Bastille areas, or to Île de la Cité and on to Châtelet/Les Halles, or to the the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg or Jardin des Plantes. In the end, we just saved the metro and buses for coming home when we became footsore! It was a pleasure to meet Yan and Julie in Sydney before our trip to Paris, we felt totally confident about the swap, and all arrangements worked like clockwork. Thank you so much.”
“We have just completed our swap with Julie and Yan at their beautiful Paris apartment, what a great experience, thank you Julie and Yan! The apartment is in a great location and has recently been renovated and is just super. It reflects the fact that it is their main home and is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Julie and Yan are very easy to communicate with and the swap ran seamlessly, we spent a great week there and thoroughly recommend it.”
