Réponse du propriétaire: Thanks for leaving comments, Jeane! These days, the neighbors are fine with the fact that we rent our place (legally!), and that's due to the fact that our guests are all respectful people like you. :) The courtyard is really a separate issue -- no one in the building is allowed to sit out there. This is true of pretty much all the courtyards in Paris! As you can imagine, many Parisians already have to deal with lots of street noise, so they prefer to keep the courtyards quiet. Hope to have you back sometime! Chris

Réponse du propriétaire: Having never had a complaint about noise in more than a decade of renting our apartment, I was surprised by your experience that one night. (As you told me in your email, it was just one party one night.) I called the woman who lives above, and she asked me to extend her apologies to you. It was, in fact, the first get-together she had hosted in a very long time. She explained that she had stepped out, and during that time some of her guests got carried away (which was the subject of the argument the next day). Of course, since you only stayed a couple nights, it was difficult for you to judge what is normal, but I can assure you that you just had bad luck and that there's never been a problem before or since. In fact, just to be sure, I've asked every visitor since your stay if there was any noise and everyone has said no. So, I hope you'll accept her apology. Also, just for future reference, disturbing the neighbors is taken very seriously in Paris, much more so than in many other places. It comes from centuries of living in high density urban environments like Paris. Practically speaking, that means that complaints are responded to. So, should you ever experience nocturnal noise in Paris again, whether from another apartment or from the street, you should call the owners of the apartment where you are staying. In this case, I would have called the apartment in question and can pretty much guarantee that the noise would have abated immediately. If it did not, I would have called the owners of that apartment, and then the police. The latter do, in fact, respond to such complaints, generally sending an officer to knock on the door in question. In any event, we would welcome the chance to have you back so that you can have the normal experience of the surprising quiet that our other visitors have enjoyed in our apartment, despite being in the center of a big city. Being ensconced within stone walls off of a quiet little garden away from the street, it's a haven of peace. And that's the main reason we purchased it many years ago.
