This is the first time we've rented an apartment in Paris. They are expensive and small, and it's hard to find a reasonably priced one that has two bedrooms and two full baths (our criteria). After having lots of space at our house in Riquewihr, this one seemed very little, and it was hot, too. But, we opened up the windows and turned on some fans, and now it seems both larger and cooler! It's actually a sweet little jewel box of an apartment on the Ile Saint Louis, that was built in 1652. Juliette was restored by a movie set designer, with no attention to detail spared.
Here's my room and bath, and I also have a little twin bed under the staircase, in case I want to move around (or in case my daughter wants to fly over).
Nancy and John have the upstairs loft and bath, both very nice!
