Our 2 bedroom apartment facing the woods of Vincennes is bright, refined and quiet and has true French appeal.
Near the Chateau and on the top floor with magnificent views , but only 5 minutes away from the metro.
A rare and enjoyable experience !

The space

The location is rare and premium , as it sits right across the wood of Vincennes and 60 yards away from the Chateau .
It is away from the congested and noisy Parisian life but still only 20minutes away from the Center of Paris by metro.
It is on the top floor of a 1903 renovated French building with exquisite moldings and very thick walls .
The hardwood floors are original pine , the walls are "peints au chiffon " and the furnishings are top quality.
Marble bathroom with double sinks and separate toilets . Very large closets in both bedrooms and great quality beds .
Everything you'd expect for a comfortable and restful stay while in Paris.

Interaction with guests

I live in Los Angeles, so I will not be there to greet you or interact live with you but we can speak on the phone or talk through email.
A lovely French man called Nicolas will be there to greet you , give you the keys and show you around the apartment .
He lives 15mns away and is readily available by phone and speaks good enough English with that oh so lovely French accent !

We stayed in Myriams flat as we were participating at the Playtime kids fair and it was the perfect flat to rewind in after a busy working day. It was within walking distance to the fair (located in the Parc Floral) and close to shops, some really nice restaurants and to the metro (less than 20 minutes in to the Marais). The flat was clean and bright, a bit cold when we got there (it was unusually cold in Paris when we arrived) but after putting the radiators on a bit higher this was solved. We had a lovely time and would recommend Myriam flat for someone looking for a nice, quiet and comfortably place to stay in Paris.

We stayed for a week and it was perfect. The apartment is right across the bois de vincennes. The location is just superb. Vincennes has every shops you would need. I just would like to mention that there is no microwave. It did not bother us during our stay though. Very nice place, very nice host, and a very nice stay. I will definitely come back. Thank you

Response from Myriam:
Sebastien, it was a pleasure to have you as a guest. I do mention in the description of the apartment that there is no microwave, because I am against it, so that is why I supply an electric steamer with 3 levels. It takes no more than 3-5 minutes to heat up your frozen food and it is much healthier for you. Next time you stay , please make sure you check the steamer out and let me know how it was. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you will come back . Have a lovely Holiday season. Kind regards, Myriam

We enjoyed out stay here. The flat is reasonably as described, but it is worth mentioning that some road noise comes up from the busy Avenue des Minimes below. Don't forget the lovely forest nearby and the Paris Zoo is just within walking distance and worth a visit.

Myriam s apartment is sunny and bright, with lots of daylight and a nice view of the chateau and surrounding woods to which it has easy access (just across the street) allowing for nice walks in the greenery. It is centrally located in Vincennes near the cafés and stores, with easy access to all amenities and to a metro station that takes you very quickly to central paris. Baptiste is always readily available for all requests and Myriam is very responsive.

I am American but Parisian born and schooled so I am totally bilingual.
I am happily married for 18 years to my American ,UK born hubby.
I am currently retired after running a successful fashion boutiques chain for 30 years , here in the US.
My stores carried imported European goods which took me very frequently to Paris , Italy, Spain, Germany and London , hence the purchase of my flat in Vincennes.
Because of my hectic schedule whilst traveling to Europe , I specifically wanted a place where I could recharge and relax ,away from the congested and noisy center of Paris, and because I love nature and old stones , I chose my flat across the Vincennes woods, next to the Chateau.
I am a very detailed oriented person and have numerous interests in life :
tennis is my passion ( I play almost everyday and competed for 2 years )
Wellness is my new pet peeves ( I research everyday how to better my life : meditation, yoga, homeopathic remedies, organic gourmet cooking , empathy and helping others )
I enjoy good movies, interesting reading , concerts, try to go to the theater at least twice a month, the opera, dining out with friends, documentaries, hiking, gardening, good art shows, occasional swap meets and cooking .
Friendship and family are prominent in my life and I stay close to my friends and family in Paris as well.
As a host I want your stay to be the most wonderful experience you can have .
I will be glad to help you while you are visiting and you can call me for free directly from the flat, but only between the hours of 6PM and 11PM , Paris time because of the 9 hours time difference.
My life motto has always been the same : who wants can , but I now have another one every day I wake up : thank you for another day !
