Should the apartment require more than the normal amount of cleaning after your stay, we also reserve the right to charge you in order to assist the owner in the additional cost of cleaning.

In the event of a cancelation, all sums paid shall be forfeited unless we are able to re-book your canceled dated, as these dates have been blocked and we have most likely had to turn away other potential guests. If we can successfully re-book your canceled dates, we will refund your payment.
Do you have air conditioning in all the apartments?
This is a question that we get often after the heat wave that hit Paris a few years ago. Most of our apartments do not in fact have A/Cs simply because they are unnecessary. On the whole, French buildings tend to remain cooler relative to the outside temperature. We do provide fans in each apartment.
How close are the apartments to the tourist sights?
Depending on which sights you wish to visit, you are within walking distance (from 20-30 minutes), from the apartments. Most of our properties are in or close to Montmartre so visiting Sacre Coeur or Place du Tertre is easy. Paris also has an amazingly easy public transportation system. From many of the properties you are just one metro ride or bus ride from the sights. You can walk to Opera and the Gallery Lafayette from Montmartre. Take line 12 straight to the Place de la Concorde or to Saint Germain. So you are never very far at all.
What happens if something breaks in the apartment or stops working?
We have left in the apartment a welcome book that can be a useful resource when trying to figure out why the washer is not washing or the TV won't turn on. However, if after looking through the book you do not find a solution, please contact us. We are never too far away and we of course want to know. Sometimes these are things that we can rectify quickly. We are in Paris if there is ever a problem we are here to resolve it.
Can you contact us with questions during your stay?
Yes of course! Though these are self-catered properties, we are here to assist you as we are a profesional rental agency with both a maintenance and a cleaning team at your service if needed. Best way to contact us will be by email from 10am to 6pm every day.
Are there cleaning supplies and other household products in the apartments?
A few basic starter supplies are provided in the apartment for guest use : toilet paper, paper towel, tea, coffee, soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner etc. As all our apartments are close to grocery stores (listed in the welcome book), if you should need any additional supplies. We also provide you with a full welcome basket on arrival with wine, chocolate, jam, coffee, tea...

Yes, all linen and towels that you will need for your stay, for the number of people you have reserved the apartment for, are provided.

No. Our apartments are strictly non-smoking.

What happens if we have a very early or very late arrival or departure?
Normal check-in is 3 PM though we try our best to accommodate our guests with different arrival times, and normal check-out is 10 am. If you are arriving on a very early flight, the only way you can ensure the apartment is ready for you before 3 PM is to reserve the night before. Early check in fee is 40 euros and late check in fee between 30 and 50 euros depending on the time chosen.
Is there an elevator?
The majority of our apartments are no more than 3 flights up and many are on the 1st or 2nd floor (2nd or 3rd to North Americans). Not all the buildings have elevators so if you require an elevator let us know.
