Beverley Williams & Kent
I was most impressed with your many prompt replies to my questions. We appreciated that the building was very secure with digital entrance code etc. The apartment could house four adults properly. Furnishings were very suitable- my son was fascinated with the large interesting library. We also appreciated the access to free Internet & free phone calls internationally. What a bonus!
While in Europe none of the other rentals had left such detailed information as you had for us upon our arrival about your flat, transportation, local attractions, etc. Thank you for that! The location was very convenient- we were able to walk to many places in the Bastille area. We loved the many cafes. We appreciated the reasonable rental fee you ask. Would we stay there again? Yes! It met our needs & had a trusting l&lord who was very congenial & helpful. What more could you ask?

Staying at Jean Charles's apartment was a great choice. It has everything (& more) you would expect from an apartment including a full kitchen, dining area & office area. We really appreciated the computer & high speed Internet access as well as the free calls back to the United States. I would recommend this apartment to anyone

Dear Jean. We'll be more than glad to recommend your lovely flat which satisfy our expectations during our holiday in Paris. The flat is comfortable & in a very good location, but for us, the most significant advantage was - meeting a nice & hospitable proprietor
John Baldwin & Marilyn Gibson.
From the moment Jean Charles greeted us at his apartment, we felt as if we were right at home in Paris. The flat itself was very comfortable with all comforts & conveniences available (including a wonderful book collection), & the location was excellent. We highly recommend this apartment for Paris visitors
Jean Charles. Our friends & I enjoyed ourselves very much. It was a very cute apt. We loved the fact you had the Web & free international calling. It is pretty well located, walking distance to the museums, & only blocks from the cemetery Pere Lachaise which is beautiful. We had a great stay & I would recommend it because it is larger than most hotel rooms. Also the metro & taxi stands are close. We had a great time. Thank you
Hello Jean. I enjoyed staying in your nice apartment of Paris. You look like professor of university Location is very good near Bastille. If you come to Sapporo, Japan, I can offer my house, live in another place, so my house is vacancy.
Hi Jean. I just wanted to thank you for the lovely stay in Paris. It has been a real pleasure renting from you. I have never tried to rent an apartment before in a foreign country so I was very scared about what would happen. If ever you need a recommendation, forward the request along & I will be happy to give one for you (with high praises of course) :)
Jean Charles Dicharry, artist and bilingual writer, is early on interested in performance creation in Amsterdam. This allowed for staged interactive experiments between photography, painting and poetry with the help of mimes and dancers. Later, based in New York, he involves himself internationally with fresco and mural projects. Subsequently the then nascent world of computing offers creative investigation to multimedia virtual art, combining animation, text and sound for installation projects.
Presently back in Paris, he now devotes himself mainly to writing.
The Owner purchased this condo in 1951
My parents bought this home a few years after the second world war. My father, a French naval officer, left France during the war for England to fight the Nazi regime. My English mother was at the admiralty … and so they met. One of the rare benefits of any conflict. They settled in France where I am born. With my sister we all lived in this Parisian nest during the 50's and 60's. I then lived in Holland and the United States When I decided to rent it I had no idea it would be so gratifying. This because travellers visiting give back life to a space that has meaning to me. I know Paris better perhaps than my soul and enjoy giving to visitors who wish so a sense of its history, mystery and spirit.
An authentic neighbourhood yet close to all activities where one can truly experience living as a Parisian. All the amenities (shops for daily necessities, specialty stores, supermarkets, post office, ATM, parks, cafes, restaurants) one can expect from an authentic neighbourhood that is still not affected by the merchandising of the nearby famous areas, yet very close to them. A very calm district and one of the most charged with history. Access to all parts of Paris are easy either walking (to the Bastille marina and river and the Marais in 15 mn), by subway direct to Champs Elysees, Trocadero and Montmartre (line 9 and 2 – duration of trip 15 to 20 mn depending of the target) or with the fantastic world renowned 69 bus, one block away, which crosses most major points of interest in the city (Pere Lachaise – Bastille marina and opera - Marais - The river Seine & its islands with Notre Dame & the Sainte Chapelle - Beaubourg Museum- Palais Royal - The Louvres museum - Orsay museum – Invalides and the Eifel Tower).
I have been to Paris many times and have stayed in a number of arrondissements. This time, I wanted to try the 11th, where I had never stayed before. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Paris. It is located in a very un-touristy part of Paris, where you can feel like you are really living like the locals. There are a number of good restaurants and cafés nearby (go to l'Artiste on rue de la Roquette) and the metros are close (Pierre Auguste and Voltaire).
The owner of this apartment - Jean Charles - is very friendly and informative, and he clearly wants you to enjoy his home and the surrounding neighborhood, where he grew up. I met him on the day of my arrival and he gave me several ideas locally for restaurants, cafés, shopping, etc. He also gave me an overview of the history of this neighborhood, which once held in custody those destined for the guillotine during the Revolution. (You can actually see on the street where the guillotine used to be - there are 5 rocks embedded in the pavement that are still there close to 230 years later). As a history buff, I welcomed this information.
The apartment has everything you need: kitchen, bathroom, shower, living room, bedroom. There is WiFi included, as well as TV. It is only one floor up from the ground, so it is very accessible.
Jean Charles made me feel at home right away, and I had a very pleasant visit to another interesting part of Paris. I hope to return to this apartment one day.
We like traveling in a responsible and involved manner. We don’t mind and actually like having the use and taking care of a real home. If hotels can occasionally be welcoming living for a while surrounded by the life style of another person can be an amazing plus, depending on where you land and who you meet. That is why we are so content with this rental. The landlord has made sure all the necessary information was clearly layered out so that we could live there as well as immerse ourselves in the city like Parisians. The space is loaded with all that you may need for daily life, entertainment or work. It is calm, comfortable and has AC as well as central heating. Transportation, restaurants and stores are all close by, some around the block.
Used to life in the country we usually expect to be saturated by noise when in major cities. We were happily surprised that this building and nearby area were actually very calm. Jean-Charles, the landlord, was very friendly and helpful. Jean-Charles your home was very well organized and comfortable but what counted most was your friendliness. Thank you for making our stay so special.
If the city remains an amazing multi layered experience in history, culture and food Jean-Charles rental contains as well antique furniture, decoration influenced by earlier and exotic art periods but as well all the latest technology. The apartment is cozy and is situated in a calm neighbourhood even if just a minute away of the first lively restaurants and theaters. The kitchen is very well equipped so that we could experiment with dishes inspired by the vast array of food so accessible nearby. As a very pleasant addition you will surely find the landlord a great help for discovering his home and the town.
We Love culture. We got both, as well in the numerous museums, in its street history as well as in the apartment. The City museums are free. The national ones and the private ones are usually decently priced and often offer an evening per week free. When lounging at the rental we had access to a very large library of art books and historical reference books as well as all styles of music one could listen to form either room via a system connecting the PC to both the speakers and the stereo. The area mood was inspiring and friendly. Restaurants of all prices are simply at every block as well as many bakeries, delicatessen stores and supermarkets. This warm and stylish home contains all the required amenities and is comfortable. All of this and much more will be clearly described by Jean Charles, our very special and kind landlord. We will be back.
This is our third trip to Paris and each time we change for a different area. But from now on we will be visiting new places from this strategically situated spot. The description is accurate. Bus 69 is just around the corner and brings you to most of the famous parts of the city except for those you can directly reach by foot nearby or further away with two subway lines a few minutes away. The apartment is comfortable, elegant, quite and clean and if you forgot to bring a hair dryer or a bottle opener you will have such things and plenty more at your disposal there (including plastic colored knives and forks for children). For those who like a romantic as well as practical setting this is it.
Close to many subways, 1 or 2 blocks away, 69 Bus station and park, 1 block away, post office, theatre, bakeries, cafes, delicatessen stores & supermarkets, wine shops, pharmacies, launderettes, ATMs, hardware stores, doctors, dentists & so on, 1 to 2 blocks away, Swimming pool & sport clubs are at a walking distance,
Visiting Paris, Le Marais (oldest part of Paris) & la Bastille (newest fashionable area), 15 min walk or 5 by bus, Le Pere Lachaise, less than 5 min, Belleville (China town), 15 min walk, 6 by subway, Foot of Montmartre, 15 min direct, Champs Elysees 20 min direct, big stores (Galleries Lafayette, Printemps) and the Opera, 12 min direct, Notre Dame, 17 min with 1 change, Latin Quarter, 18 min with 1 change, Eiffel Tower, 2O min with 1 change, Add duration of pace from home to station and from station to site, Map of the close neighborhood, one for transportation with instructions of how to reach a place fast & phone books are provided.
