About Emmanuel Guillais
My wife Joelle, is a writer and novelist living in the country side where she can seek and find inspiration. As for me, I recently retired and retreated to the Normandy for more greenery. Our house is Paris is now vacant through the year and we would happily rent it to other wonderful people visiting Paris. If you have any question about the house, or about planning your trip to Paris let me know, I would happily help you!
Emmanuel Guillais purchased this House in 1985
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Positively fabulous rental
We choose this property largely because of the size (we were 6) and apparent quality, as well as the location (close to some old stomping grounds of ours when we lived in Paris years ago). Our experience was perfect!
First, the house exceeded our expectations. Not only are the pictures and descriptions accurate, but the interior is so very well furnished and so artistically and elegantly decorated that we were very pleasantly surprised. In French, we would say something like "Ils ont de la classe, ces propriétaires." (These owners are classy.)
Second, the house is in a delightful part of the 15ème arrondissement where one gets that "village" feeling rather than the hustle and bustle of Paris. It is very close to la Rue du Commerce, which is filled with (you got it): commerce; patisseries, boulangeries, traiteurs, restaurants, cheese shops, wine venders. etc. etc. etc. It's close to several metro lines, and one can with ease walk to the Champs de Mars and Eiffel Tower. And a special bonus is that the house, being inside a courtyard, is very quiet.
Finally, Emmanuel (the owner) is an amazing communicator and is as accommodating as anyone can expect. Renting from him was marvelous.
We cannot recommend this home highly enough!
Thank you Emmanuel for the great experience.
House in the middle of Paris!
We had a wonderful stay at this property. Everything went smoothly with check-in and check-out. It's a fully and beautifully equipped house - tucked into a courtyard in a real Paris neighborhood (at least three bakeries to choose from within 2 blocks :) ). The weather was terribly hot during our time in Paris and the house was a great refuge. I imagine it would also be a cozy retreat in the winter. Highly recommend!
Great space and location
The property was well kept. The host was friendly, accessible and timely. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would stay there again@
Excellent home away from home.
It has absolutely everything you need.
Owners have been very easy to communicate with.
Close to subway. One mile from Eiffel Tower.
Paris may 2019
We have traveled a fair about and this trip was super. Emmanuel son met us at the apartment and explain how everything work. He was excellent! He had champagne and pastries for us. The experience was wonderful! Thank you for a great stay.
House actually have 3 bedrooms for max 5 adults and one child (not 4 bedrooms)
- House Location
- House Furniture is old but ok
- Very Nice and friendly Owners (we came very late and they allowed late check-in and late checkout)
Bad Points (the reason why we removed two stars from our ranking):
-It’s is very unclear to me why the owner calls this apartment 4 bedroom. House has THREE bedrooms (2 with double bed, 1 with single bed) and one single small bed for a child is located in mezzanine (an elderly person will have hard time going up there because of steep steps and very low ceiling);
Did he count a single bed in mezzanine level as a bedroom???
- The house is good for 5 adults and one child (they can stay comfortably), i.e. up to 6 people total, not 8 people as in description
- Only few wardrobes available (some wardrobe are closed and not accessible by guests).
-Master bedroom and single bedroom have no wardrobes!
House has good size wardrobe in bathroom on the first floor but who would keep their clothes in hot bathroom?
- Very old and rusty kettle in the kitchen (we were afraid to use this kettle).
House has -
-Master bedroom (double bed) and a convertible sofa suitable for one child (I don't think that three adults will want to sleep in one bedroom, i.e. sofa is for a child only). NO Wardrobe in the room.
-Second bedroom with double bed and small wardrobe.
-Third bedroom with single bed. NO Wardrobe in room.
Optional - bed for a child in mezzanine, no wardrobe.
Living room has one wardrobe near the entrance of the house for jackets and coats
I would recommend that owners change the description of their apartment on the website from 4 bedroom to 3 bedroom with a single bed in mezzanine level; place more wardrobes in the house and please, change that rusty kettle in the kitchen!
To all our dear future guests,
This review is largely dishonest and please rest assure that our family is working really hard to provide you with the best hosting services so you can enjoy your holidays in the city.
The house can accommodates 8 people accross 3 bedrooms and a mezzanine above the living room as described on the listing and photos. You will be able to enjoy a spacious living room and large dining table for all the guests. There is also plenty of storages all around the house.
The house was refurbished two years ago so everything is new from the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. You will find fresh towels, high quality bed sheets, new mattresses and new cooking appliances. Some furnitures are vintage by choice and they are of course for decorative purposes.
Finally, we want to make sure that you have a great time in the house as it means a lot to us, so in the event that you need anything during your stay, let us know and we will accommodate it.
We have had wonderful guests and as many great experiences so we look forward to welcoming and hosting you for your next trip in Paris…
