Why Helene chose Saint Gervais
We are great travellers and want to share with others the joy of living in the heart of Paris.
What makes this Apartment unique
Undoubtedly, the strong point is its situation at the heart of the city but it is also the beauty and quiet of the apartment. It is the apartment where we live most of the time, except when we are travelling. The renters will find a real home, with our things, our furniture. This is an apartment far from impersonal or anonymous
Beautiful and comfortable for a long stay
This apartment was perfect. Spacious and comfortable, the historic building, large sunny windows, and the owner's lovely artwork make it a truly beautiful apartment as well. The Marais location is great—park oases all around (Place des Vosges; the garden at the gothic Hotel de Sens; and gardens at Archives Nationales). Very convenient--metro and bus are right there, with frequent stops. Boulangeries, wine, chocolate, and cheese shops, multiple grocery stores (conventional and organic), and several book stores are just steps away, and it’s only blocks from BHV and the Bastille market. It's easy to prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen, with full-size refrigerator and gas range. Very clean and spacious bathroom, and plenty of towels and linens. Plenty of table space and fast WiFi for working. The owner is kind and helpful—made everything easy. Highly recommend.
A lovely historic home, filled with arresting artwork. Great location, great neighborhood. Everything at your doorstep--groceries, bistros, restaurants, 8 hour dry cleaning service, Metro stop a block away. In the middle of Marais, with plenty of historical sites close by. The apartment contains everything you need, very well equipped. The owners are very friendly, helpful and responsive.
fantastic apartment in excellent location
What can I say, you walk out the door and are in the heart of the Marais- just a few minutes from Place des Vosges and Rue de Rosiers, even the river and just a few seconds from any supplies you could need...wine stores, bakeries, fromageries.
The most important part is we got a great night sleep, despite the central location, inside the apartment is peaceful and quiet.
Hosts were gracious and accommodating, and Paris does not disappoint.
I couldn't recommend Helene's apartment any more highly, it is comfortable, spacious and bright. The location is perfect, right in the heart of the Marais. The apartment has all the amenities you could need. Thank you very much for a wonderful experience.
Convenient and comfortable
We agree completely with all the previous reviews. The kitchen was very well appointed and the furniture comfortable, which is not usual for rental apartments. The owners were gracious and we look forward to renting from them again next year.
Beautiful and calm
This apartment was beautiful, clean, fully equipped with anything you might need, and in the perfect location. Helene met me when I arrived in a very welcoming way and showed me how various appliances worked. The neighborhood is wonderful with fantastic food shops (cheese, fruits and veg, butcher, charcuterie), bakeries, cafes, and nearby supermarket, as well as a number of interesting shops. The Place des Vosges is within a few blocks, making it a nice place to go for a walk or to take a picnic. The metro is very nearby and it is extremely easy to access all parts of Paris from here by foot or metro. The wifi (necessary as I was there working) was excellent and strong.
I had a wonderful month and would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely and calm haven to rest in!
