Thank you Kyle. Enjoyed hosting you.
We always have a fan for summer and extra heating for winter as well as extra blankets.
I just arrived in Paris and someone apparently broke and removed the fan from this apartment and no one told me.
If you would have let me know I would have gotten you a fan.
Yes ground floor on inside of courtyard is both super quite and very cool, provided you open the windows.
DO NOT BE AFRAID.
Everyone opens the windows in the courtyard to let cool night air in.
In Paris the shutters have slats in them for privacy and to let that cool night air in.
There is a security bar, so normally you don't even need the fan, as the courtyards always fills with cool air at night and ground floors like ours get the coolest air since hot air rises and cool air sinks.
It is the outside street facing apartments in Paris that people rent that the sun beats down on all day that are hot and if you open those windows at night you hear noise.
If you did not open the inside glass window as recommended, and leave the shutters closed at night with the security bar then yes it could get warm.
Note: Courtyard air never 90 degrees. That is outside street temperature or what someone's iPhone said about the overall temp in all of Paris. Usually courtyard temp at least 10 degrees cooler than street temp, and inside about 5 degrees cooler than that due to rock walls etc. Provided you open the windows at night and leave the security shutters closed that lets very cool night air in.
I write this because if you lived here all the time you would know these things, also this is the safest neighborhood in Paris and the owners of this building are very wealthy as with the other owners in this area Doctors, Senators, Celebrities etc.. Super Safe Area...
Perfect place to enjoy.
I was just in Paris with outside temperature at 95 degrees (according to iPhone) so warmer than you're stay and with windows open and a fan at night, I slept like a baby under covers to stay warm, perfectly comfortable.
Again anyone reading this, if there is anything we can get or provide for you to make you're stay amazing.. do not hesitate to ask.
Also, if you have more than 2 people in you're party, you can book my other apartment next door for 4 people. (2 adults 2 children) and you are all together but with separate bathrooms and bedrooms etc. Ideal for parents in Bungalow, their married kids and grand kids in the Cottage next door.
See you soon !
