Everything about the apartment was as stated in Amandine's post. I found the apartment to be clean, well-equipped, and quite large for a person traveling alone (a large and very comfortable bed is included). The heat, kitchen, toilet, and shower work as they should. Amandine met me as arranged and showed me how to access the building, enter the apartment, and the workings of my temporary home. I was very happy that this apartment is neat, clean, efficient, and absolutely perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. The building is professionally maintained and has a secure entrance. An elevator services the residents and was reliable. The residents of the building are friendly, polite, and quiet. No drama here! Only a place that one is happy to return to for a good night's sleep after enjoying Paris and its environs. The walk to the RER station at St. Germain-en-Laye is easy -- straight up Rue Felicien David which becomes Rue Alexander Dumas, see the Chateau du St. Germain-en-Laye on the right, walk into the station, and you are on your way to all of Paris. There is also regular bus service just outside the building and it is relatively easy to determine which bus goes where. If you need to shop, just walk up Rue Felicien David and Rue Alexander Dumas (same street so far as I was concerned), take a left on Rue de Paris and you will find butcher shops, bakeries, a super market, and many shops (I needed to buy a pair of dress socks for a wedding I was attending -- not a problem). My French is extremely limited, but all the shopkeepers I encountered were happy to assist me, even if they spoke no English -- a simple "Bon jour" or "Bon soir" upon entering accompanied by the eventual "je ne parle Francais" and all was good. St. Germain-en-Laye itself is a very safe and clean town with all necessary services -- I easily found a dry cleaner who pressed my suit and shirt for a reasonable price. There are many restaurants and cafes where you can have coffee or a meal. Also, the RER at St. Germain-en-Laye is the perfect station for one unfamiliar with the Paris train system --- it is the end of the line for the red line, so you just get on and are quickly in the city center (I like the Charles De Galle Etoile station to exit) and away you go to explore Paris. Finally, the trip from and to CDG is simple -- go to the kiosk, follow the prompts, get the ticket, one transfer, and you are there! In fact, given my experience, I would definitely want to stay in this apartment on my next trip to France -- it is absolutely perfect! A wonderful experience.
