About Julien

My name is Julien and I am the owner of Marais-Beaubourg. Since September 2010, I have tried to offer my foreign visitors a home to live like a real Parisian for a few days or a few weeks.

I have done my best to make Marais-Beaubourg both comfortable and luxurious. I decorated the apartment with beautiful furniture and elegant details. I guarantee a clean and well-maintained apartment. I make every effort to keep it up to the high standards I believe my tenants deserve.

Julien purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Julien chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

I want you to be part of stay in unique surroundings and explore the city like a local. This apartment took your breath away when you first step in. The ceiling, original features, attention to detail in the furnishings and plush facilities makes it unique. It is truly a wonderful space to enjoy the best that Paris has to offer.

High-speed Wifi, High quality bed sheets and pillows (600 thread-count), unlimited free calls to landlines and cell phones in the US and Canada, home cinema, computer, king-sized bed, high quality sofa bed, A/C unit.

-Attentive owner:

I am available and quick to respond whenever you have questions before and after your stay. I'm happy to recommend any restaurant or activity. I can provide extra services on request (wine, champagne, local cell phone, etc.) and book a taxi or a restaurant for you.

-Personal welcome:

The reception person will welcome you on arrival and help you with your luggage. He will give you recommendations and advices to ensure your experience is a truly ‘local’ one. You will also receive a 'Welcome Box' including: washer & dishwasher tablets, nespresso coffee capsules, shampoo & bath gel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay at this stylish apartment very much. We are a family of 4 - mom, dad, 15 year old son and 12 year old daughter. The location was fantastic - we could walk to Notre Dam and Pompidou Center, we rented bikes to ride to Eiffel Tower & Louvre, and the Paris metro was close by and easy to manage. Numerous good restaurants and shops nearby.

Communication with Julien was always swift and the arrangements were easy. We used Paypal for all of the financial transactions which worked out very well.

It was a perfect place to stay - so elegant, very well decorated. The views out the multiple windows were simply wonderful - nothing beats waking up to the beautiful city of Paris. Although the location is central, the actual street is quiet. We slept very well. We found that staying in an apartment with full kitchen helped keep our food budget manageable.

Was as advertised, everything worked, located in the midst of a variety of many good cafes and shops

  • 4 of 5

Sept 2016: The apartment was as advertised, everything worked, and it was conveniently located in the Marais area (4th Arrond), only 1 block away from the Centre Pompidou and in the midst of many good and affordable cafes and shops; a 15-minute walk to Notre Dame. Check-in and out was painless. The property manager offered then arranged for a shuttle service (cab) to pick us up at the airport for 40€. The driver coordinated our arrival so there was someone to meet us at the apartment and help us with our luggage. We used the same service to take us back to the airport upon our departure. Normal check-in was 4pm so we asked and the apartment was made available to us for our noon-time early arrival. Spiral staircase, 5 floors up, no lift. The apartment was stocked with some toilet paper, paper towels, café cartridges, laundry detergent, liquid dish soap, and shampoo. Convenient; didn’t have to spend our first hours in Paris searching for a store and shopping for essentials. Felt secure: Security code for street entry, then keyed main entry door, and deadbolt on apt door. Wall safe within apartment for storing valuables. Free and flawless Wi-Fi in apt. Weather was moderate so didn’t use the heat or roll-about air conditioner. No car; we walked to the Latin Quarter, Luxembourg Gardens, St Germain des Pres, Mus’ee Picasso, the Louvre, Notre Dame. Took the Metro to the Eiffel Tower, and to Sacre Coeur. Having a Smart phone with texting, Internet browser, and GPS proved very useful. Would definitely recommend this apartment to family and friends; would stay here again.

They stay was excellent. The property was well located, nicely appointed, and the process was smooth. I especially appreciated having a washer and dryer in the unit, as well as a pretty complete kitchen. Great value and 100% satisfied.

Would happily stay there again.

C'est magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It is located in one of the best neighborhoods in Paris, filled with bakeries, cafes, restaurants, stores and two Metro stations. The apartment itself is very comfortable and Julien has thought of everything to make it feel like home, down to the computer with printer to print museum passes, boarding passes and train tickets. The bed and sofa are very comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you might need. To Americans, the apartment might seem small at first, but you do get used to it - to the point that you wonder why you need so much space back home. The huge windows make the apartment feel larger since they let in so much light and fresh air - though if you haven't lived in an urban environment before, the sound of trash trucks and passers-by can take some getting used to. Yes, the apartment is on the fifth floor with no elevator, but you get used to that, too. Finally, note that the apartment does come with an air conditioner, but we never needed it since it cooled off at night even after hitting almost 80 degrees. We will be back!

Great Location! Comfortable beds. Would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

What we liked: Great location and comfortable beds - the bed in the bedroom is a true king size bed (even for Americans) and the sofa bed was a comfortable queen. The apartment was quite clean with all necessary kitchen tools. Of course it was on the small side, given it's central location in Paris, but we did not feel overly cramped with a family of 4 (including 2 adult children). Even the shower was adequately sized, which is rare in Paris. We really appreciated the restaurant suggestions and number for a taxi company. Despite being in the middle of Paris, the apartment was relatively quiet at night and our sleep was not disturbed. There were many bakeries and food shops nearby, so we were well supplied with fresh baguettes and pastries for breakfast every morning and had no trouble getting things for the 2 dinners we cooked in the apartment.

What was not so great - all relatively minor concerns: Check in procedure was relatively inflexible - we ended up paying 35 Euro extra because our arrival was delayed (15 for being late, 20 for coming after 8pm). Of course, it's our fault for being late, but more flexibility would have made things more pleasant and less stressful. The apartment is on the 4th floor (5th to Americans) up a relatively small winding stairwell, which was undergoing renovations during our stay, so the apartment smelled of paint and varnish and needed to be aired out regularly. Some extra towels would also have been appreciated.

Everything taken altogether, I would definitely stay there again and recommend this apartment to others.

Well located

  • 4 of 5

A small but comfortable flat in the heart of the Marais. Steps away from excellent restaurants, patisseries and grocery stores. Only a few minutes to the Metro (Rambuteau) and the Centre Pompidou is near as well. Pedestrian-only streets nearby make for interesting strolling.

My only regret would be the flat is situated on the fourth floor and can be a bit of a climb after a day out walking.

There is everything that you would need in the flat as far as amenities go. However, if you're having a night in, bring your own entertainment, the TV channel choices are limited from an English perspective and there is very little in the way of sports, in any language.

But I guess that's not really the reason you are in Paris, is it?

Plus que parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons logé du 15 au 22 nov. 15 soit immédiatement après les attentats du Bataclan. Nous nous sommes senti en sécurité dans cette appartement très bien protégé que seule les locataires peuvent y entrer. L'appartement est magnifique et le lit king est super confortable, je n'ai jamais aussi bien dormi à l'extérieur de chez moi. L'appartement est tranquille, il n'y a pas de bruit et de bon rideau dans la chambre pour une noirceur parfaite. Le propriétaire possède deux appartements dans le même logement donc si vous voulez y aller avec des amis, vous pourrez rester un au dessus de l'autre. Pour les gens à mobilité réduite l'appartement est au 4e étages avec escalier donc soyez en forme. L'appartement se trouve dans un quartier gai, mais il n'y a pas de problème même si on est hétéro, il y a beaucoup de resto et épicerie prêt du logement et métro Hôtel de ville est à 3 min à pied. Nous vous recommandons donc ce logement sans hésitation et Julien est à votre écoute.

Fantastic Marais location with shopping on rue Rambuteau including fresh fish, an Italian deli, a famous pastry shop and fresh vegetable and fruit store. There is also a large choice of bistros and restaurants nearby. The dance centre with courtyard restaurant is a must! Its only a short walk to the Picasso museum, Carnavalet museum and the Place des Vosges. The Notre Dame is just over the River Seine..... of course the Beaubourg museum is only 200 meters away.
