Lepic Retreat was renovated specifically to meet the needs and demands of the most discerning traveler. We have truly tried to think of everything and more to make your stay here with us one that we hope you will not soon forget.
The style of this apartment is classic, à la Française, but with personal modern touches. The mix of colors chosen for the furnishing and the walls, come together to create a relaxing & elegant space. The light fixtures were hand picked from a very fashionable boutique.

The space

The main entrance divides the apartment like most typical Parisian flats. The rooms facing the street (like all the rooms in the apartment), have large double glazed windows. You can decide to isolate yourself from the hustle bustle of rue Lepic or throw open the windows to let in the jovial atmosphere that locals and visitors have come to know and love.

To your right as you enter the apartment is the living room whose entrance door has been decorated with a motif of the Paris metro (in case you have forgotten where you are), is the heart of the apartment. This is where you will relax after a long days sightseeing, perhaps catching up on international news in English, Spanish, German or French among otherlanguages or making use of the laptop computer to surf the internet and plan out the next days visits.

The coffee table doubles as our dining table and is a truly ingenious space saving system that can be raised or lowered with the flip of a lever and opens out to seat up to 6 people.

Throughout the apartment you will notice the original moldings on the ceiling and walls recalling the grandeur of Parisian architecture.

A DVD player has also been provided along with a selection of DVD movies in English or subtitled. We have even put in a PS3 system and a few games for the young or the young at heart. No worries about staying in touch with family and friends - you can make use of the apartment's telephone to make free long distance calls to over 50 countries including the US and Canada as well as to landline phones within the EU.

Also facing the street is the twin bedroom where the beds can either remain as twins or can be put together as a king size bed upon request. The room is another tastefully decorated and restful space with a beautiful original fireplace.

The master bedroom faces the building's inner courtyard and is a quiet retreat. The large very comfortable queen-size bed will be a great welcome after a long day of taking in French culture. A large screen TV has also been installed here for the insomniacs amongst you. You may never want to get out of bed in the morning!

The kitchen is small yet incredibly well equipped with, dishwasher, 4-burner ceramic glass stove top, small washing machine and a combination microwave/oven. This kind of efficient use of limited space is something that Europeans in general and the French in particular, are famous for. You will be able to whip up delicious meals for your family and friends or just unwrap all the fantastic food that you have picked up from the local market and caterers.

The bathroom has a relaxing walk-in shower enclosure, with rail shower as well as a handheld. The heated towel rack not only keeps your towels warm but heats up the bathroom on a cold Winter's morning. The WC is separate from the bathroom making the morning routines more efficient.

You will truly enjoy your stay at Lepic Retreat and what better way to get a taste for Paris than to live as a Parisian in your home away from home.

Booking an apartment with Paris Rental Connections on Airbnb
7 January 2016

Thank you for choosing this apartment! We are the agents looking after the bookings and we will be with you at every step of the booking process right through until the end of your vacation.
One of our agents will meet you when you first arrive at the apartment and will be reachable during your stay for any problems or questions.

The Bookings and Reservation manager is called Elodie Fortoul and she will reply to you first. You may also receive an email from Michele Vannoni who runs the agency or from other staff who work certain days with us.


ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES
*Check in: 2pm
*Check out: 10am.

Arrivals: Our local agent will meet you in person inside the apartment when you arrive to show you how things work and answer any questions about your stay. You will be given 2 sets of keys (3 sets for 3 bedroom properties).
We understand that some flights arrive early but we need to have the apartments cleaned before your stay. In the case of an early flight, arrangements can be made for you to drop off your luggage and pick up the keys and make any final payments from 10.15 am – you would then have to vacate the property while the cleaner finishes.

If on the day and time of your arrival the property is vacant and ready you will be able to check in earlier. Please supply us with your exact arrival information as soon as possible so that we can schedule an appointment.
If you would like the property to be available for an earlier arrival, we suggest you reserve from the previous day.
We will send you the details of the apartment address and contact details once your booking is confirmed and we have received your first payment. We will give you information on how to get to the apartment from your point of arrival into Paris if needed.

Departures: Our cleaning service arrives at 10 am on the day you leave and we need you to vacate no later than 10am.
Please leave the 2 or 3 sets keys on the table or where your check-in agent has indicated. Be sure to pack all your belongings and then shut the door firmly behind you.
Should you forget something in the apartment after you have left then contact us we will be able to post it back to you. Please note that there is a 25 euro service fee to take care of returning your belongings to you + cost of postage or Fedex costs.

Early and Late check-ins:
Our normal check-in hours are from 9am to 7pm. We always do our best to accommodate your early and late arrivals.
Please note that there is an extra fee of 25 Euros (£20 in UK) that you will need to pay in cash to the greeters, for check-ins during these hours:
7pm to 9pm (meaning that our greeter is still showing you the apartment after 7pm)
7am to 9am
For check-ins that take place during the following hours the tariff is 50 Euros (£45 in UK):
before 7am and from 9pm to midnight (meaning that our greeter is still showing you the apartment after 9pm).
The time of your check-in is based on your expected arrival time at the apartment – should you arrive earlier without prior notice (notice of at least 2 hours) you will still be expected to pay this fee as our greeter will have made special arrangements to work later or earlier to accommodate you. We reserve the right to not greet you after hours and may suggest alternative arrangements.The time of your check-in is based on your expected arrival time at the apartment – should you arrive earlier without prior notice (notice of at least 2 hours) you will still be expected to pay this fee as our greeter will have made special arrangements to work later or earlier to accommodate you.

Some coffee, tea and sugar
2: Dishwashing tabs, 2 Washing machine tabs
Towels (2 per person)

Telephone: All apartments have free local calls included in the price.
Most properties have free unlimited calls to international landlines but be sure to check the list in the apartment as they vary – wherever calls are free to international landlines calls to cell phones to USA & Canada are also free.
As each phone service is different before making any calls check the list of free calls which are listed in the welcome book in the apartment.
Cell phone calls are not free (in France these are numbers starting with 06 in the UK they usually start with 07) – Please note that these calls can be quite expensive so limit cell phone calls from the apartment to your greeter only. Phone cards can be bought in local “Tabacs” or small grocery stores for any calls that are not free.

CLEANING
The properties will be clean and the number of beds requested made up and clean towels laid out for your arrival. The property will be cleaned on the day of your departure. However, washing up dishes and tidying the apartment is the guests’ responsibility. Cleaning rates are expensive and we would rather not have to charge you back for extra cleaning time so be sure to leave the apartment in the same state as when you found it, when you leave, but we will take care of the sheets and towels.

SMOKING
All apartments are non-smoking this means in the apartment or anywhere in the building and interior common parts.
Pets: No pets allowed

RENTALS OF ONE MONTH OR MORE:
For rentals of a month or more, the apartment will be cleaned twice a month; at this time the cleaner will clean the apartment and change the towels and sheets.
These extra cleans will be scheduled in advance – be sure to check the dates with your greeter when you arrive.

CANCELLATION POLICY
50% refund up until 1 week prior to arrival, except fees. For a 50% refund, cancellation must be made seven full days prior to listing’s local check in time (or 3:00 PM if not specified) on the day of check in, otherwise no refund. For example, if check-in is on Friday, cancel by Friday of the previous week before check in time.
If the guest cancels less than 7 days in advance, the nights not spent are not refunded.
If the guest arrives and decides to leave early, the nights not spent are not refunded.

•The Airbnb service fee is non-refundable.
•If there is a complaint from either party, notice must be given to Airbnb within 24 hours of check-in.
•Airbnb will mediate when necessary, and has the final say in all disputes.

•Cancellation policies may be superseded by the Guest Refund Policy, safety cancellations, or extenuating circumstances. Please review these exceptions.
•Applicable taxes will be retained and remitted.
Change of dates: Should you need to completely change your travel dates after payment then this becomes a new rental. We will usually be able to add days to your booking without any cost if the apartment is free.

Cancellation by host: In the unlikely event that we are unable to provide you, with the property originally booked, we reserve the right to offer you:
A property of equal or greater value. If the property is of greater value, you will be asked to pay the difference – or if this is unacceptable, you will be given a refund.
If the only property available is a smaller property or one of lesser value, you will be given the choice of taking it with a refund for the difference in price from your original booking – or if this is unacceptable, you will be given a refund.
If nothing is available for your date, we will cancel the booking and immediately give you a full refund. Possible reasons for cancellation by us would include, but not limited to: Damage to apartment, flooding, fire & major construction on building or legal reasons.

Lost Key: If you lose the key, for your security, we are required to change the locks and have all the new keys cut. These costs are the renters responsibility. A quote will be given to you and you are required to pay this while you are still in Paris or as soon as we know about it. This is often quite expensive in Europe from (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Euros depending on specific lock + keys cut a new key can cost about 90 euros.
NEVER leave your key on the inside of the door as you will not be able to push the key into the outside lock and open the door from the outside again. If this happens and we need to call in a locksmith you will be liable for the cost of repairs.

Damages: Renters agree to inform greeter or PARIS RENTAL CONNECTIONS immediately of any damages that occur during stay as soon as possible during your stay.

OCCUPANCY:
The number of people occupying the property at one time should be the same as the number listed on your reservation and will not exceed the maximum occupancy amount indicated on the property details.
If extra people will be occupying property please let us know in advance and pay extra fees when applicable, but in no case can we accept more people than the normal maximum occupancy.
The renter listed in the booking confirmation must be the same person to occupy the property for the listed dates and not sub-let under any conditions.

LIVING IN AN APARTMENT
You will be staying in a privately owned apartment in a building where other residents live. As such there are common parts and tenants should be very aware that noise travels in buildings both in the apartments and the common parts and we ask our renters to be respectful of other people’s right to live in the same building without disturbance. No smoking or shouting in any part of the inner building should be carried out.
If you are expecting to arrive late at night or if you depart before 8 am please don’t roll luggage over the floor as floorboards are very noisy for your downstairs neighbours – please pack your luggage the day before departure and move it towards the front door the day before your early departure to avoid disturbing.
As in every private apartment sometimes appliances break down – please notify us as soon as possible if a problem comes up. Every effort will be used to rectify it in a timely manner.
Locks: Paris has some very sturdy locks and as such the keys are sometimes hard to turn. Your greeter will show you how they all work and be sure to practice on them yourself with your greeter.

INTERNET:
In all PARIS RENTAL CONNECTIONS properties high speed internet connections is provided with Ethernet cable and/or a wireless network. PARIS RENTAL CONNECTIONS and property owners will do their best to keep everything in good working condition. If you wish to connect your computer to this network, all the connection codes and information necessary for you to connect are listed in the welcome book. We cannot be responsible for renter’s inability to connect to a working internet connection. If this were to occur, we can provide the name of a computer tech person who can set up the connection for you, at your own expense.

Please note that internet connections in Europe are not always reliable. We cannot be held responsible for a non-functioning internet connection or computer, but we will use all means possible to remedy the problem as soon as possible.


MAINTENANCE
Paris Rental Connections or the owners cannot be held responsible at any time for breakdown of mechanical equipment in rental or common area of the building (heat, elevator, electricity), nor for failure of public utilities (water, gas, cable, electricity) or for temporary stoppage of building utilities for urgent and un-expected repairs. Usually the building maintenance will put up a sign warning tenants in the building of proposed works even if they are done at the last minute. However, we are not in the building every day to see these signs. If you see a sign written in French send us an email or a text or a photo so that we can let you know what it says.
For apartment break-downs we will first have our maintenance person or local agents come over to determine the problem and then try to repair it. If we cannot repair it we will call in a specialist. Specialists are not always available to come immediately but we will strive to get an appointment within 3 days (specialists only work Monday to Friday).

Specialists and workmen needed to repair or maintain the apartment or building may have to come during your stay. Usually they will be accompanied by our local agent or by our normal maintenance person or owner and if we are aware of it we will ask your permission first. Occasionally there are other official repairs carried out without our prior knowledge – and if they turn up while you are home (they won’t have a key) please phone our local agent so that we can verify their credentials. If no appointment has been made with them you do not have to let them in if you don’t want to.

In apartment buildings there are sometimes works carried out by neighbours in the same building or in adjacent buildings, or sometimes carried out in the street outside. These works don’t need to be notified to us or the owners and as such Paris Rental Connections and the owners of the apartments cannot be held responsible for such works. Should the said works be of a nature to disturb you outside of working hours (9am 5pm) then the police should be called by you while staying in the apartment when the noise is happening – city police take noise pollution very seriously.
Once we are notified of the disturbance we will do everything possible to re-locate you to another apartment if the nature of the works is excessively noisy or disturbing to you.
We reserve the right to offer you:
A property of equal or greater value. If the property is of greater value, you will be asked to pay the difference – or if this is unacceptable, you will be given a 100% refund.
If the only property available is a smaller property or one of lesser value, you will be given the choice of taking it with a refund for the difference in price from your original booking – or if this is unacceptable, you will be given a 100% refund. If nothing is available for your date, we will cancel the booking and immediately give you a full refund.
If we are made aware of such works before your arrival we will notify you in advance and offer another apartment so that you can decide where to stay.

LIABILITY & TRAVEL INSURANCE
Please make sure your personal or travel insurance will cover you in the unfortunate event that you injure yourself in the property or if you become ill during your stay.
It is advised that you take out your own multi-risk home, travel and tenant liability insurance.

All valuables left in property are done so at your own risk. All measures have been taken to ensure that the rental property is secure, but it is your responsibility to make sure proper precaution is taken against theft or burglary.
Paris Rental Connections, their agents or the property owners take no responsibility whatsoever for injury to any tenant during the rental period, nor held responsible for loss, breakage, damage or theft of any personal property of the tenants and their guests.

Tenants agree to fully release Paris Rental Connections and any representative, owner and owners’ representative from any and all claims for liability and damages to tangible or intangible personal property or personal injury occurring to the tenant or third parties on the premises during the rental period.

Tenants agree that Paris Rental Connections and owner’s liability for all claims, of any kind, arising out of this engagement shall be limited to the total fees paid by tenant.

We had a really great time in Lepic apartment. The neighborhood is very lively, full of little shops and restaurants. The apartment is very close to Metro station and you can get to any main Paris location within 15-20 minutes. Also our host organized a little binder with tips and suggestion for dining, scenic walks and sightseeing. We lived within walking distance from Sacre Couer and Place de Tertre. Apartment was small, but very comfortable and had all the amenities needed.

Our stay at Michele's flat was nothing short of magical! When we arrived we were met immediately by the smiling face of the property manager and she immediately took us to our room. There was a little mishap with the electricity but it was all sorted. I would recommend this property and definitely this location again. The rental company Michele rents through is extremely professional and very accommodating.

Four people stayed for a week. You can walk to the Sacré Coeur temple. It is close to two subway stations. Nearby, there are fruit shops in organic cafes, supermarkets, fishmakers, and you can cook in your room. The wifi environment is also good. The rooms are warm and linens are also available.

Great Location! I loved that the apartment was more in the local part of Paris (not too touristy) it allowed me to really get the feel of the city! Everything is also super close by and all of the fun tourist attractions are just a short metro ride away. Michele herself was very helpful and responded very quickly to any question we had. I will definitely be coming back here on my next visit!

We absolutely adored Michele's Montmarte apartment. It was the perfect launchpad for a whirlwind week of sightseeing, wine drinking, cheese eating and exploring. The streets of Montmarte are incredibly charming - winding narrow brick hills give way to steep stairs, surprises around every corner and treelined pathways. The neighborhood is filled with wonderful restaurants, all the shops you need, brasseries, and cute shops. There were three of us and we were perfectly comfortable. The water in the shower was always hot, the beds were fantastic and the view from our window delightful. I couldn't recommend this spot more!
