Excellent apartment, spotless, clean and pure as the white ermine that romps across the city’s coat of arms. Excellent location on a small square full of delightfully amusing people and dogs to watch. Never a moment that lacked animation or beauty. The spires of Saint-Vincent were always in sight from our windows — mirabile visu — and windows themselves were a wonder. Close them and the brouhaha of the street below vanished and slumber on the best beds I’ve found in my travels became. Perhaps the best of all was our hostess a welcome reality. But the best of all was our hostess Muriel — always in touch, always patient, always helpful and gifted with a fine wit and tolerant sense of humor.
