Perfect for my one month writing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Picking the right apartment for my 1-month writing retreat was crucial and I couldn’t have chosen better. This lovely apt in the Marais had everything I needed. A perfect size – gave me lots of room to spread out and when my husband and daughter visited, more than enough room for us all. The bed was incredibly comfortable, as was the pull-out couch (says daughter). Kitchen was fully equipped, with all I needed to cook all my meals. Had a nice kitchen table with 4 comfortable chairs (spent a lot of time working there, staring out at the beautiful buildings all around). Couple blocks up on Bretagne you’ll find everything you need: grocery stores (franprix), produce markets, wine store (Nicolas), pharmacy, bakeries, and even the oldest market in Paris! Wonderful restaurants and cafes in all directions from the apt. If you have the time, take the Food Tour of Marais - right in the neighborhood!

Apt had fans in both rooms and the big windows let in so much light. The shower was tight but the water pressure was superb and the shower head was adjustable for height and could be detached. Plenty of hot water for all. The pictures do not show the entrance hallway which contains a very large walk-in closet with lots of shelves, place to hang clothes and store luggage. Internet was strong and secure. TV did only have French channels, but it IS France, afterall. Can always bring your roku or firestick.

Building is quiet and the apt is two floors up, but even at 60 yrs, I didn’t find the stairs at all problematic. Upon arrival, Rafael met me, helped me with my bags, showed me how to work everything including the induction stovetop, combo microwave/oven (very clever!), and washer/dryer. I often had questions, which Rafael or Carolyn responded to very quickly, including how to get to Versailles when the suggested RER train was down for maintenance!

The Marais neighborhood has lots of upscale shops and is accessible to everything, but true, it’s not tourist central (anything near the Seine/Notre Dame). I preferred this, much quieter, esp at night. You can walk nearly everywhere or a Metro is just a few blocks away, which will land you close to any attraction–and buses are just as easy to use. But Paris is best seen by walking! It is also true that getting to/from the airport takes a bit of knowledge about the train system (metro, RER trains) but with Uber it’s easy to get a ride to the closest RER station. Already planning my next visit-would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Elaine was a delightful guest! Very easy to communicate and took good care of the apartment. Can't thank her enough for everything she did, even removing a stain that not even professional cleaners could deal with. Hope to see her again soon.

Lovely apartment, central, cute and convenient

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful compact abode, clean and modern with all that you require. Shops are close by, the metro around the corner and the apartment centrally located to all attraction. Our family comprises 4 and we were very comfortable.

Clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We give this apartment and owners a very good rating. The apartment was clean, comfortable

and well equipped. The neighbourhood was safe and very walkable, with great restaurants,

groceries and sidewalk cafe’s all nearby. The subway was just 2 blocks away and gave us fast access

to every tourist site. We will try to use this apartment again on our next visit.

Great area, great space!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay in Le Marais, wish we had chosen it for the longer portion of our Paris trip. It is very conveniently located to lots of variety of shops--and plenty of great fashion stores!--but all the necessities are close by too. The apartment is very bright and clean. It's quiet and the beds are very comfortable. Even the pull out couch is top notch. Either the other tenants were away or they were very quiet, we didn't hear anyone on the stairs, which can be a problem in buildings with wooden stairs if you're not used to it.

There's plenty of storage for getting your suitcases out of the way and making yourself at home. The only thing we missed was a toaster.

Raphael was excellent to communicate with and contacted us to make sure we were on schedule.

It was perfect for the 3 of us, myself, my husband and 12 year old son. We would stay there again for sure.

Perfect apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment (I stayed for 6 weeks May/June 2016). It was perfect for me and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Booking etc was easy and my expectations/hopes were more than met. I highly recommend it.

LOCATION - amazing! A beautiful (and lively) street - the apartment is accessed off a lovely cobbled courtyard. The metro is 5mins walk away (St-Sebastien Froissart) but the apartment is so central I mostly walked everywhere. Cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, boulangerie, etc on the doorstep. (5mins to Marché des Enfants Rouges food market.)

APARTMENT - clean, bright and stylish. Exactly as it appears in the photos. Very safe and secure. Wi-fi is strong. Constant hot water and powerful shower. Heating works well. Two big fans for hot days. Main bed and sofa bed really comfortable (clean, fresh smelling linen). TV only has French-speaking channels. Washing machine is good and easy to use. Nice lighting options. There is a large full length mirror and a big walk in storage cupboard (not shown in photos) with plenty of room and hangers to hang up clothes and store shoes and suitcases out of the way. Be careful of the sliding door into the bathroom from the living room, it sometimes comes of its runners.

Kitchen - well equipped and good appliances (there wasn’t a toaster and I had to Google instructions for the combo oven). It was great to have a full kitchen where I could cook proper meals. Pantry items: only included spaghetti, tea and filter coffee bags. No salt, pepper, dried herbs/spices or coffee.

My contact person (Rafael) was nice and welcoming. But not knowledgeable about the apartment (he thought the oven was just a microwave) or the area (didn’t know which supermarket was open when I arrived) and was hard to contact. Tatiana, the property manager, was very responsive though.

Félicitations et merci à votre équipe

  • 5 of 5

Pour commencer nous avons été très bien accueillis, conseillés et rassurés par votre disponibilité.

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour et l'appartement correspondait à 100 % aux photos.

On était très bien situé avec (Métros, Bus, Station de Taxi) juste à coté, supermarchés, commerces..., c'est vivant et il y a tout autour.

Aussi c'est le "Quartier du Marais" au cœur de Paris et on s'est beaucoup promener à pieds. Par exemple Notre Dame 20mn, Beaubourg 10mn...etc, c'était génial !!

Ces vacances de fin d'année nous ont enchantées et espérons pouvoir revenir dans les mêmes conditions.

Encore merci à votre équipe
