The location was within an 8-10 minute downhill slope walking distance to the train station easily going into Paris. There is a train regularly passing nearby the home, but it did not disturb us at all, merely sounding like a low rumble. As a regular place of residence, it is basic & comfortable, but best suited for adults as I would not call it "child-friendly" with (as of April 2017) alcohol, cigarette, & nude pictures on the walls. Oliver's hosting was as accommodating as he could be, although the parking space was very tight/precarious. Be sure to ask how to use the oven as it was tricky, but everything else seemed fine! We enjoyed Versailles.
