The space

---------ENGLISH VERSION-----------

Completely refurbished apartment in a one-century old building in Bures-sur-Yvette, very close to the University of Orsay by foot and two strain stations away from the CNRS research centre of Gif-sur-Yvette. The centre of Paris is 35 minutes away by the local train (RER B) that departs from Bures every 15 minutes and runs roughly from 5am up to 1am. During the night there is each hour a bus called “Noctilien” running from or to Paris. Both the RER station and the bus station are less than 1200 feet away from the flat. If you have a car, there is a small free parking at 100 m, and two time-limited parking spots (parking disc available in the appartment) nearly at the door of the appartment. On saturday and sunday all the parkling is free.

This a very charming place with original old tiled floor in the bedroom and stones on the walls, however you will have all comfort inside with a clean kitchen and even some garden space outside to dry clothes or have dinner. There is an automatic landromat right in the same street 60 feet away, but there is also a washing machine in the appartment.

The entrance of the flat is on the ground floor on the street. It leads to a main room of 215 ft2 and then a bedroom of 119 ft2 with a double bed and an Italian style shower. Each room has a window facing the garden. From the main room you can access the basement from an electric trap door that gets you into an arched cave of 200 ft2 with stone walls, that can accommodate another couple or children; however you will need to use a ladder to go to the cave from the main room, alternatively you can enter from the garden. If this is not clear please ask and I will explain you better the way the apartment is organized!

Internet access is included. Towels and linen furnished.

Local shops about 500 feet away include a grocery store, bakery, post-office, pharmacy, flower shop, book shop...
Open food market on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a nice park are both within 1500 feet.
A short walk further there is a supermarket.

This is a great location near the University, not far from Versailles by car, and on the train line to Orly and Charles de Gaulle airport, the TGV train station of Massy and the the centre of Paris (Saint-Michel Chatelet).

The flat belongs to Thierry, my boyfriend, but it is now free since several months since we moved in together in an old house 10 minutes drive from the apartment. We are now renovating our new home to make it sweet because we like charming atmospheres and we thought that people might like to use this cosy apartment for their stay in the area or when coming for work e.g. to visit scientists in the close research centres. I am myself a scientist, mother of two girls of 17 and 20 years old, and Thierry works in housing renovation but is also a theatre actor. We will be happy to meet you!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

No smoking allowed inside even with windows open, there is the garden if you wish! No animals allowed either because of serious allergy.

We spent a nice stay in a charming appartement, which is well decorated with a vintage touch. Nathalie and Thierry were very welcoming and accomodating with check-in/out time.

I can't recommend Nathalie's apartment enough. When I arrived, Nathalie spent a lot of time welcoming me and showing me around the flat. The flat is surprisingly spacious and has pretty much everything that I needed for 5 days. Also, the apartment is wonderfully and quirkily furn…

The apartment itself is very nice and comfortable; the fixtures and appliances are modern but the decor has a lot of old-world charm and character. It is also fully functional, with a full suite of cookware and cutlery available, as well. Nathalie also went above and beyond to…

Nathalie is really a great host and even went as far as picking us up by car from the train station. She also explained where we could find anything in the apartment and told us where everything was in the village as well, which was really helpful. The apartment itself is grea…

The apartment was exactly as described, and although Bures-sur-Yvette is a bit far from Paris, it is easily accesible on the RER. There is a very convenient boulangerie down the road, and a small grocery as well. Nathalie was very accesible when we had small problems.
