About Owner/Property Manager

In Beau Paris is a Vacation Rental Agency operating in Paris for more than 10 years.

We manage close to 100 apartments in Paris, all of very good to luxury standard.

We take care of the advertising of apartments, the reservation process from payments to security deposit refund; and even the cleaning and the maintenance of the apartment.

We would be very happy to host you in one of our apartments that you will find on VRBO :

We do very little brand name advertisement. We focus on what matters: MAKING SURE OUR GUESTS ARE SATISFIED (check the reviews on any of our apts. Recent apts do not have reviews yet).

We believe it is the best way to develop our activities which have been growing steadily every year. You are welcome to try our service.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Sorbonne

We selected this property because of its great location close to Panthéon, Mouffetard, Jardin des Plantes, Jardin du Luxembourg, Sorbonne university and the apartment practical interior design perfect for a couple.

It is the main residence of the owner. He rents when going to his secondary residence. For a guest, renting a main residence is a warranty of high quality : it is always maintained at top level. Obviously, the owner puts away personal belonging. There is more than enough space available for guests.


What makes this studio unique

We know searching for an apartment can be a nightmare :

that is why, from beginning of your search to the end of your stay, you will have REAL PEOPLE INTERACTING WITH YOU, not automatic mailing or automatic booking.


We answer to each request and send a detailed quote & contract on each request. We believe the instant quote given on the site is not precise enough for a guest to book an apt.

We react fast, be it by mail (often in the hour, max 24h, we have evening shift), Immediatly by phone. Note we do not take booking on the phone nor discuss prices or availability, risk of mistake is too high. E-mail is much more secure & precise. We nevertheless are happy to answer specific questions.

During your stay, we are always available. We can advise you on how to use the apt. We run a night emergency line, for real emergencies :-). When problem arise, we do our best to solve them, quickly.

We want our guest to have the best memories of their stay. We have a high rate of returning guests : it seems they do.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay in Apartment Descartes. For a studio, it is quite large and well laid-out. I didn’t want for a single thing while I was there - everything I needed to cook, clean, and live was provided. Jean Noel and his team made my (early) arrival and (late) departure seamless, and were even kind enough to help facilitate a package delivery, which can be quite the hassle in Paris! The area, just north of Rue Mouffetard, is fantastic, full of great restaurants, cafes, and markets. The Arènes de Lutèce and Jardin des Plantes are two beautiful parks within walking distance of the apartment, and the Pantheon is just around the corner. Overall, I can’t recommend this apartment highly enough! I would absolutely stay there again.

Traditional Paris apartment, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I stayed at the Rue Descartes apartment in March 2017. The apartment is just as it is presented. It is a traditional Paris apartment up three flights of stairs with windows that open onto the street. All very quaint, clean and well priced.

The apartment has all you need for an enjoyable stay in Paris. The sofa bed is very comfortable, the WiFi adequate and security of building very good. There are all the appliances you will need for washing, ironing, making light meals and entertainment. There is also a phone.

The location is excellent. Metro and buses 5 mins walk and Luxemburg RER direct to/from airport 15 mins walk with luggage but fairly easy going. You can easily walk to likes of Notre Dame if reasonably fit. Learn to use the buses as they are best value and go everywhere very frequently.

The area has plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The restaurant directly across the street was very good. There is an excellent patisserie on the nearest corner with croissants and baguettes worth the trip to Paris.

InBeauParis is very easy to deal with. Communication is very prompt and clear. The security deposit was returned in full within a couple of days.

We would definitely stay here again if ever fortunate enough to return to beau Paris.

Rue Descartes

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful apartment , the space is big enough for two.. I stayed in this place alone and it was magical. I stayed for six weeks and it felt like home.Awesome and comfortable bed and really a good setup.The owner Jean-Noel was always receptive and responsive to any needs. Also Karen, the manager was also very nice and helpful also.The check in process was smooth and effortless. It's a lively street but it's not bad at all... Also you are so close to the Pantheon and the Jardin du Luxembourg.. I had many a lunches there and went to read a book at dusk.Three really good boulangeries and a Carrefour 2 blocks away.. In other words book it!!

Delightful stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the apartment was clean and welcoming. the size was cosy and had a well equipped kitchenette. the decor was simple and traditional with lots of lovely wooden features.

the street and area was friendly and relaxed with plenty of good restaurants and easy to negotiate local shops such as small supermarche.

on using the facilities over a number of days, everything we needed was provided and easy to find.

the instructions on the door were very useful and frequently referred to.

the fact that English was spoken by the hosts was very much appreciated and the customer service provided was excellent.

we would definitely stay again and it has already been recommended to friends.

Thank you for a nice stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Vanessa, Thank you for the nice review. We do our best to represent the apartments truthfully so there are no surprises. I confirm, the apartment is very well located in a famous Latin Quarter, known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros. It is indeed safe. We appreciate your recommendations and looking forward to seeing you in Paris! Sincerely, Jean-Noel

Perfection in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Hi J,

Just a quick email to say thanks again for renting us your apartment on Des Cartes - it was amazing!

Perfect size for the two of us, with everything we could have wanted including a fan for the hotter nights. Very cute neighbourhood and near a wide range of restaurants and markets and a few stations nearby.

If anyone is conscious about security, no need to be here, there is a coded door, 3 flights of stairs and then the door to the apartment itself has 3 locks. I'll put it this way, if someone can break in, they almost deserve your stuff haha. Seriously though, very safe, I was comfortable walking home late at night on my own etc. :)

As J mentions in the description, there are stairs, I had a huge 25kg suitcase. I struggled up (jetlagged and hot), but as my partner said, its only once up and once down when we leave :) Otherwise I quite liked the stairs (not many) and felt I needed them after all of the pastries that I ate!

All in all I couldn't fault it, wifi worked properly, there was a washing machine etc. A+++ :)

If I venture back to Paris this will certainly be my first pick.

Cheers, M :)

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle, Thank you for this great comment! It is ideal for two and, as you said, luckily, you just need to climb the stairs twice with your suitcase. The area is fun and lovely, the building is safe and all you need to do is: relax and enjoy.  We will be happy to host you again sometime in future! Sincerely, Jean-Noel
