​Mr & Mrs Prescott from USA

Just got back from a weeks stay. Took the train from Brussels to Paris. Very easy. Luggage storage above the seats is good for carryon size luggage. Bigger bags have to be left by the doors. Stayed on the Ile St. Louis in a loft apartment right on the Seine. It was wonderful and quiet. Can't say enough about Phillipe and Christopher who run The apartment was spotlessly clean and exactly as the photos show. Several older folk live in the building and were very friendly. We used their transport service which was very nice from the train station. and then to the airport. After reading endless stories about apartments with no towels, dirty, and problems we were so surprised when we walked in the door. Spotlessly clean, lots of towels, toilet paper, and everything else you would want. On the dining room table a huge bouquet of fresh flowers. Their office was a block from the apartment and were more than willing to help with anything you needed or questions. Like having your own travel agency right there. They both speak perfect English. Photos on their web site are totally accurate. What we enjoyed. River rides on the Seine. We did it once at night and once during the day. It was beautiful and fun. Spent a day at the Lourve. Should really be broken up in two days. Too much to see in one day. You feel dizzy when you leave. Was disappointed the Mona Lisa was behind glass. Between the glass, rope around it, and the crowds you could hardly see it. Used Paris Tours for a day trip to Versailles. Not to be missed. The Hall of MIrrors was breathtaking. I got goose bumps when I walked into that room. I would have to say the Versailles tour was the best part of my trip. Spent hours walking around looking at the sites and so much history. Shoppers can shop till you drop. Paris is big but really a walking city. The metro is easy to use and a good way to get around. I found the French to be friendly if approached in the right manner. I think speaking French would greatly enhance vacationing here. We don't but got by. A friendly Bon Jour goes along way.
