“Lovely Apartment in the Marais”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were pleased with the apartment and Marc and Marie were very nice. The apartment was very clean and bright, but very small. It is in an excellent location for walking to most sites and Metros with plenty of great restaurants near by. When we arrived on Saturday morning the wifi was not working and we didn't have any internet access for the first few days of our stay. When we finally saw Marc on Monday he was very apologetic and explained the situation. Within another day it was up and running. In the meantime he did offer us the use of his office, which was in the apartment building, and he shared another wifi system that we used in the courtyard. Our only negative experience is when we landed in Paris on a very early morning flight was that we had to wait two hours outside the building to meet someone with access for us to store our luggage. (We knew we couldn't check in that early, but were told we could store our luggage.) Unfortunately, we did not have any phone numbers to contact anyone, only emails and we never received a response to our emails that we sent that morning. Knowing Marc, I am sure this was an isolated incident, but I strongly advise getting a contact phone number.

“Perfection in Paris”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is the only place I would stay when I return to the most romantic city on the planet: centrally situated within 10 mins walk of the Seine and Notre Dame, surrounded by restaurants and cafes and about 15 mins from great shopping districts like Rue Etienne Marcel (a must). Also an easy walk from the metro.
Whisper-quiet at night as it is situated off the street and this delightful apartment has all the amenities you need, even a washing machine. Large comfortable bedroom with modern TV, a fab coffee machine and a lovely little dining/kitchen/lounge area. A word of caution - the shower is built for slim people. Marc is most helpful and leaves you to do your thing. Plenty of supermarkets close by if you feel like your own catering. Merci, Marc et Marie!

“The apartment was just perfect.”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment was in a perfect location and comfortable in every way. Easy access to everything. Very clean, had every possible convenience. I would highly recommend it. Our host explained everything when we got there and left us completely alone to come and go. Perfect for not having to drag suitcases up lots of stairs. Highly recommend it.

“Lovely apartment in central location !”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment itself was extremely well located, with easy access to a number of metro stations, supermarkets, shops, restaurants etc.Marc was exceptionally helpful with everything, as were the young staff in the cafe. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even calling an out of hours Doctor and communicating the problem ( as my French was definitely not up to the occasion ! ) The apartment was very comfortable, with everything one would require. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My apartment was newly renovated and lovely.
I found as a solo traveller that I felt completely safe at all times.
Marc the owner was more than helpful with suggestions and information regarding getting around and what to do.
It was a good place to base my self for the week as everything is very accessible from here. The Marais district is a lovely area to stay in.
I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to fellow travellers

We loved our stay in Marc and Marie's apartment. It is in the most fantastic location in Paris in a quiet street of the Marais. My sister and I both loved it. Because of its location off a courtyard far from the street it is also extremely quiet. The cafe out front run by the owners really does have the best coffee in Paris and the boys working there were really lovely and helpful when it came to calling a taxi. We had great communication with Marie and we met Marc who was really lovely. The apartment like all Paris apartments is small but really is location, location, location.

Very good location, only few minutes to most popular places like Notre Damme or Louvre. Many restaurants and bars nearby. Owners are very helpful and friendly. The flat is on the ground floor, it's small but comfortable and has everything you'll need during the stay.
