My passion : discovering new countries, meeting new people, that's why I have been involved in tourism in Paris for the last 12 years. My aim : renting pleasant and decorated apartments , well equipped, in safe and convenient districts (next to metro stations) with good quality for the price
My apartments are located in the heart of Paris, especially in LE MARAIS, historical and typical district
January 2017 - 5 days in Paris, living in Thierrys apartment in a nice district with comfortable Metro lines and shops with all you need. And if You like walking, it is only 20 minutes to the river Seine and Ile de la Cité / Notre-Dame.....
The apartment is well organized, very clean, silent, make You feel home after a long day running around in Paris....and Thierry is very well informed about the house and the city.
Trust me ....You can have a nice time in Paris - living in this apartment. Thank You Thierry.
A wonderful apartment in the heart of Paris, really easy to walk from the door to anywhere you want to go.
The apartment was lovely, we had everything we needed.
Thierry was incredibly helpful and efficient.
I recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to discover Paris.
From answering our pre-booking questions to post-visit follow up, Thierry provided our family with an amazing experience in Paris. The purple apartment was the perfect home base for my wife and me. The flat was perfect! It's quiet and serene setting on an inner courtyard provided a tranquil escape from the busy Paris streets. The location is phenomenal with easy access to the Arts et Metiers metro station, great local food markets, a Carrefour Market, ATM's, bicycle rentals...everything you need is so close to the flat!
As for the flat, everything is exactly as you see it in the pictures. It's absolutely beautiful and very well kept. The bed in the bedroom is comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. All in all, this was one of our most enjoyable vacation rentals ever. Thierry is a pleasure to work with.
I already stayed last year in one of Therry's apartment in the same building. It is central and amazingly quiet and large enough for 2 (by any standards but especially by Paris standards). Extremely well fitted out both in the kitchen and in the bedrooms/bathrooms. We walked everywhere from here even though incredible convenient for many metro subway stops. Therry is excellent in communicating about the accommodations and the district. Would without hesitation recommend this more than charming apartment to anybody.
The reservation process went well at the first stage. We used paypal and got our confirmation. Then, before the final payment was due, I received an email from the proprietor encouraging me to pay either via paypal or in cash, but not to use the VRBO site as *I* would be charged an 8% fee for doing so. I used paypal as instructed and promptly received a message from the proprietor saying he'd received my payment, but that I was X euros short, which I could pay upon arrival. Since I'd sent the exact amount and had a statement from paypal saying that amount had been received, I was puzzled, so I pressed the matter. The proprietor said, "Well, that may be the amount you sent, but this is the amount I received," this being X euros short. I eventually succeeded in getting him to send me a screenshot, which showed that, in fact, I had sent the correct amount, but that he was charged a fee from using paypal. In the US, we call this, "the cost of doing business." He uses VRBO's services to advertise the place. That's how we found it. We used paypal, which charges him a fee for connecting paypal for his business. Somehow, though, the proprietor felt that that fee should be tacked on to our bill, after the fact and after I had followed his instructions to the letter.
Given that we stayed for 12 days, the fee was a small fraction of the total bill--and something you would only insist on because you don't ever expect to have customers return. It's a small thing, but when someone chisels at such a small level, you are left to anticipate being chiseled at the other end, as well. Indeed, weirdly, the proprietor followed up this exchange with a request that I pay the security deposit via paypal! I didn't, of course, but did wonder throughout our stay how much of my cash deposit, if any, I would receive at the end.
Had we not been dinged this extra fee for nothing, I'd have given a more positive review. The apartment is the quietest one I've ever stayed in in Paris. The location is perfect if you are interested in the Beaubourg. The living room furniture is ready for a complete replacement. We were told not to sit in two chairs, because they would collapse. The pullout couch is so old and broken down that it can hardly support one person sitting on it; sleeping on it must be a ghastly experience. The main bed, though, is firm. The water is hot. The kitchen is ok.
So, my advice. If the price seems right and you're ok with down at the heel, pay cash.
Appartement super bien situé, à proximité de lignes de métro, à 10 minutes à pied de l'Hôtel de ville et de la cathédrale Notre-Dame; quartier super sympa, calme et accès facile aux épiceries bio et autres commerçants. Hôte sympa et disponible.
