The apartment is beautiful, in a virtually tourist-free location, yet only blocks away from many of Paris' greatest attractions. A gem of the city.

We were so pleased when we arrived in Paris, that the description of the apartment lived up to all of it's claims - it was beautifully decorated, spacious and a joy to spend a week in, it had everything you could want for a holiday and so many little thoughful extras too, like the towelling robes and the DVD's. For a British person, used to British holiday homes and their lack of facilities, this was quite an eye opener, it was just perfect, a fantastic walk in shower, mood lighting, suede sofa, heaven ! It was difficult to drag ourselves out in the morning.
Well done to Peter for setting such high standards in location and content - we'll definately be letting all our friends and family know about this wonderful place for their trips to Paris - and hopefully he'll expand to other European cities in the future,.. now that would make us happy!

I think everyone who visits and falls in love with Paris imagines themselves living there. Some of us wonder what it would be like to extend that week's stay into a month. Others fantasize of staying long enough to watch the seasons change. For most apartment renters their home away from home will be a surprise when they arrive, so a good choice is vital to a happy stay. Shabby sheik or true antique is often a matter of subjectivity. So when I arranged with Peter Bracke to stay at one of his apartments for the first time I had high hopes . And when I arrived there I was surprised and delighted to find myself truly at home in a beautiful Paris apartment of the highest quality contemporary furnishings. Not the average rental apartment. Truly a home of the highest quality in Paris
This Right Bank apartment is located in what has recently become a very trendy neighborhood called So-Pi ( South of Pigalle ) out of the tourist area, yet within a five-minute walk of Montmartre and Sacre Coeur. The apartment looks out on a little garden, and is free from any street noise. As you stroll the surrounding area, you will find both hip and traditional restaurants, shops, and craftsmen nearby. And just two blocks away is a full-size swimming pool.

My family of 4, with 2 teenagers, enjoyed a wonderful week in Peter's apartment. The location was in a non-touristy area, however convenient by the RER /metro (15 minute walk) to access all the sights of Paris. The Sacre Coeur was just a short walk away (15 minutes), and many restaurants and small grocery stores lined the street just outside the apartment. Just down the street was a beautiful bakery, where each morning we picked up freshly baked croissants and delicious baguettes. The apartment itself faces the courtyard, so it was extremely quiet in the evenings. The king size bed and the couch (as a bed) were both very comfortable, and the apartment was extremely clean. Wi-fi was fantastic, even with all four of us using it at the same time. Overall, a wonderful vacation!!
