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

Fantastic apartment

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very good, a large space, workable kitchen, comfortable bed in a quiet blue bedroom. The location is the best part, in the heart of the Marais, close to metro and wonderful bakeries. Everything worked well. No problems of any kind, only concern would be for someone who has trouble climbing 2 flights on a winding staircase.

A Great Place in a Great Locale

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 flew in from different world-wide locations to this great oasis in the Marais. The apartment, located in a 300 year old building, was comfortable, well-appointed, and beautifully decorated especially with the artist-owner's unique painted furniture. It is only steps from everything you need to survive - great individual shops for cheese, fois gras, and chocolate with a wonderful bakery on the corner. Only steps from the Picasso Museum and the Place de Voges, it is a great place to launch site-seeing to everywhere else in Paris. I would love to stay there the next time we visit.

Beautiful Stay in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We had a wondful stay in this beautiful apartment in the Marais. The location is perfect near the best cheese, wine and boulangeries shops in the area and just steps from the Metro.

The apartment is perfectly maintained with all conveniences. The owners are very helpful with leaving names of restaurants and places of interest. It is also easy to be in contact with the owners.

We would definitely recommend this apartment and look forward to staying there again ourselves. The Gordens
