I was most impressed with your many prompt replies to my questions. We appreciated that the building was very secure with digital entrance code etc. The apartment could house four adults properly. Furnishings were very suitable- my son was fascinated with the large interesting library. We also appreciated the access to free Internet & free phone calls internationally. What a bonus!
While in Europe none of the other rentals had left such detailed information as you had for us upon our arrival about your flat, transportation, local attractions, etc. Thank you for that! The location was very convenient- we were able to walk to many places in the Bastille area. We loved the many cafes. We appreciated the reasonable rental fee you ask. Would we stay there again? Yes! It met our needs & had a trusting l&lord who was very congenial & helpful. What more could you ask?

Staying at Jean Charles's apartment was a great choice. It has everything (& more) you would expect from an apartment including a full kitchen, dining area & office area. We really appreciated the computer & high speed Internet access as well as the free calls back to the United States. I would recommend this apartment to anyone

Dear Jean. We'll be more than glad to recommend your lovely flat which satisfy our expectations during our holiday in Paris. The flat is comfortable & in a very good location, but for us, the most significant advantage was - meeting a nice & hospitable proprietor
John Baldwin & Marilyn Gibson.
From the moment Jean Charles greeted us at his apartment, we felt as if we were right at home in Paris. The flat itself was very comfortable with all comforts & conveniences available (including a wonderful book collection), & the location was excellent. We highly recommend this apartment for Paris visitors
Jean Charles. Our friends & I enjoyed ourselves very much. It was a very cute apt. We loved the fact you had the Web & free international calling. It is pretty well located, walking distance to the museums, & only blocks from the cemetery Pere Lachaise which is beautiful. We had a great stay & I would recommend it because it is larger than most hotel rooms. Also the metro & taxi stands are close. We had a great time. Thank you
Hello Jean. I enjoyed staying in your nice apartment of Paris. You look like professor of university Location is very good near Bastille. If you come to Sapporo, Japan, I can offer my house, live in another place, so my house is vacancy.
Hi Jean. I just wanted to thank you for the lovely stay in Paris. It has been a real pleasure renting from you. I have never tried to rent an apartment before in a foreign country so I was very scared about what would happen. If ever you need a recommendation, forward the request along & I will be happy to give one for you (with high praises of course) :)
Jean Charles Dicharry, artist and bilingual writer, is early on interested in performance creation in Amsterdam. This allowed for staged interactive experiments between photography, painting and poetry with the help of mimes and dancers. Later, based in New York, he involves himself internationally with fresco and mural projects. Subsequently the then nascent world of computing offers creative investigation to multimedia virtual art, combining animation, text and sound for installation projects.
Presently back in Paris, he now devotes himself mainly to writing.
The Owner purchased this condo in 1951
My parents bought this home a few years after the second world war. My father, a French naval officer, left France during the war for England to fight the Nazi regime. My English mother was at the admiralty … and so they met. One of the rare benefits of any conflict. They settled in France where I am born. With my sister we all lived in this Parisian nest during the 50's and 60's. I then lived in Holland and the United States When I decided to rent it I had no idea it would be so gratifying. This because travellers visiting give back life to a space that has meaning to me. I know Paris better perhaps than my soul and enjoy giving to visitors who wish so a sense of its history, mystery and spirit.
An authentic neighbourhood yet close to all activities where one can truly experience living as a Parisian. All the amenities (shops for daily necessities, specialty stores, supermarkets, post office, ATM, parks, cafes, restaurants) one can expect from an authentic neighbourhood that is still not affected by the merchandising of the nearby famous areas, yet very close to them. A very calm district and one of the most charged with history. Access to all parts of Paris are easy either walking (to the Bastille marina and river and the Marais in 15 mn), by subway direct to Champs Elysees, Trocadero and Montmartre (line 9 and 2 – duration of trip 15 to 20 mn depending of the target) or with the fantastic world renowned 69 bus, one block away, which crosses most major points of interest in the city (Pere Lachaise – Bastille marina and opera - Marais - The river Seine & its islands with Notre Dame & the Sainte Chapelle - Beaubourg Museum- Palais Royal - The Louvres museum - Orsay museum – Invalides and the Eifel Tower).
This apartment was a perfect choice for my sister and I. Jean Charles was an excellent host, meeting us early at the apartment as we were flying in from the U.S. Jean Charles explained everything in the apartment with us as well as the area we were staying in. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was a huge plus. There are several forms of public transportation nearby as well as taxi stands, cafes, restaurants and a few grocery stores. Overall we had an excellent stay and I would highly recommend rhis property.
My Granddaughter and I needed a safe, affordable and conveniently located apartment to stay in during our first visit to Paris. Jean Charles' apartment was a perfect fit! From the moment we entered this charming apartment and met Jean Charles, we felt that we could relax and enjoy our visit. The information about the city, locations for places to eat and attractions to visit were generously provided by Jean Charles both verbally and in written format (including tips and maps). Who would have thought that you could get services given in 5 star hotels in such an intimate and cozy setting!!! We would definitely re-visit this apartment.
Our family spent Christmas in Paris and we are so glad we stayed at Jean Charles' charming apartment. He was helpful in explaining everything about the apartment and in giving suggestions for restaurants and sites to visit based on our interests. The apartment itself has many nice amenities, including a computer which we used extensively to look up information about museums and other sites, free phone calls to the U.S., and a large library of books and music. As others have mentioned, we felt like locals living here, and the experience was especially enriching for our sons who are students of French language and culture. Thank you, Jean Charles, for sharing your apartment with us! We highly recommend this apartment.
I was visiting my daughter in Paris and wanted an affordable place to stay in a good location. I found both! Jean Charles' apartment is conveniently located, comfortable and well equipped. It had everything we needed. Jean Charles was most helpful introducing us to his apartment. He showed us how to use everything, where everything was and even included plenty of suggestions for places to eat and visit. The neighborhood surrounding the apartment has plenty of restaurants, a pharmacy and a grocery store all within blocks. Metro stops are nearby and the bike share locations are too. I would recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again if I returned to Paris.
When making our plans to visit Paris,we were impressed by Jean-Charles' responsiveness and clear communication regarding every detail of our reservation. Upon arriving in Paris, we found him charming and attentive, and the apartment perfect for our needs. Although there is an air conditioning unit, the apartment is very well ventilated and quiet so we did not end up using the air conditioner. Both of the beds were very comfortable and we slept extremely well. We enjoyed the ambience of the apartment, including the varied library and art works by Jean-Charles. Although we were situated in a quiet area, we were within close walking distance to wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants in our own neighborhood, and walking distance to Marais and Bastille. Truly this is a real Paris apartment, and we felt like locals while staying here. We very much appreciated the welcome and advice from Jean Charles. Our stay in Paris was phenomenal and we would not hesitate to stay here again.
The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood on a little street in the 11th Arrondissement, not far from the Marais neighborhood. It is close to public transportation, a supermarket, a charming park and lots of boulangeries, patisseries and a wonderful little open air market on weekends. The apartment was equipped with everything you will need for your stay. It is in an old building so you have to like that but everything was very clean and comfortable. There is a computer and printer for your use and wi fi. The owner, came over the first day, explained how everything worked and then spent a lot of time orienting us to Paris. I had some questions after that and called him several times- he was always very responsive. I would definitely stay here again.
