Sept. 2016 Apt. In Paris just cancelled---YIKES!

Jump to last reply

Last year in Oct. we rented the loveliest apt. On Ile St. Louis with a view of Th Seine & Notre Dame.

We loved it so much that we rented it again for 5 nights in Sept. This year.
Just got an "URGENT MESSAGE"----The apt. Balcony needs extensive work that will be done in Sept. & they offered us 4 other apt's, none of which are acceptable to us or 1/2 off the original, but there will be scaffolding and work being done. Which of course means no view or balcony, one of the reasons we loved it so much was THE VIEW.

So, it's back to the drawing board, or the computer, and the hundreds of apt. Options. Find one, Ooops! 4th floor, no lift....find another, nice but a small double bed, no view, wrong area, too modern, no style, etc. etc, etc.

I just had to vent my frustration.

Anyone have a good service they've used? Willing to go up to $500US a night.
