About owner/property manager


I was born in the Dordogne wine producing area in the South of France and moved to Paris in 1999. I discovered the Aligre area in 2006 and have never wanted to move elsewhere. This area hosts the second oldest open air market in Paris, and it is opened every day but Monday. It has also become one of the hottest places for Gourmet shops... and restaurants. Many of my clients confessed over the years they dreamt of being able to stay in such an authentically and lively gourmet neighborhood, go to the market in the morning, cook... or dine outside. Today, I'm happy to offer my very first two Foodie Homes in this Parisian haven. I hope to welcome you there soon!! I'll share my favourite secret addresses with you, and you'll be able to live like a real Parisian foodie. You might never want to leave ;)

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The title of this review may seem like a cliche, but both words are very apt for this property.

The apartment is "hidden" off the street, in a lovely tree-lined and ivy-covered courtyard. You'd never know that the hustle and bustle of the city is only a short walk away! We loved coming home to it in the evenings after a long day out and about in the city.

And it truly was a "gem"--a lot of value packed very efficiently into a small space. The kitchen had a fridge, cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, and oven, and was stocked with dishes and cooking equipment. The combo washer/dryer unit was an excellent feature; having it in the apartment allowed us to travel super-light; the portable A/C unit was remarkably efficient, and kept us cool even during a 97-degree heat wave for three days of our visit.

The neighborhood in which the apartment was situated was great, as well. A supermarket just down the street provided us with staple food items (including some great cheeses and meats), and the food markets were a joy. The Gare de Lyon metro/train station was just a few minutes' walk away, providing us with a connection to wherever we needed to go in the city and to make our outbound journey to our next stop on our trip.

Marc was an excellent host, welcoming us warmly when we arrived and explaining how everything worked in the apartment. His connections to the food world were very valuable to us during our stay--he helped us not only by providing a list of restaurants but assisting us with making reservations. I wish we had been able to book one of his food tours while we were there, because I know it would have been awesome!

In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and look forward to returning someday to continue to enjoy this amazing city.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review Deanna! Sorry I was not able to take you on a food tour :(. It's indeed likely to sell out, so best to book early. I hope we can make it next time!! Looking forward to it :)

lovely cosy place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in late February/early March. The apartment is as described, compact but very well designed and equiped. It has all that is needed for cooking at home if desired-which we did a few times as the d'Aligre market down the street was simply too tempting. Marc's recommendations for local restaurants were excellent. His follow through during our stay was reassuring. All in all a wonderful neighborhood and a comfortable apartment to stay in.

A wonderful week in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Marc's apartment is compact but very well set out, it literally has everything we could need with a good galley kitchen a complete bathroom, shower, toilet, good hot water and lit vanity and including a washer dryer for clothes washing. Plus a top quality hairdryer.

The separate bedroom has a large double bed which was much more comfortable than ours at home, all in all a great and very reasonably priced base for our exploration of Paris and Marc was the dream host who more than once put himself out to look after us above and beyond.

There is a fantastic market at the end of the street and 3 supermarkets within 5 mins , the Metro is only a casual 5 or 6 min walk away and no shortage of good cafe's and restaurants minutes walk away in all directions, and Marc who is a food writer and does foodie tours of the area, was happy to advise and recommend on all aspects of a 'newbie's' visit to Paris, which helped us enormously. For a couple just great, there is also a couch which folds out to a bed in the small living room so it could house three without any trouble.

The apartment is in a great location and has good security with coded entry at all levels, we found it just great value for money and Marc was just great, we couldn't recommend the whole experience enough , whatever you think you know about Paris multiply it by a hundred and you might be close.

Great Cozy Spot in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a month in Marc's apartment. Well equipped, nicely maintained and in a great location. Easy 10 min. Walk to Bastille and Gare De Lyon. We're foodies so the small well equipped kitchen was great . Best market in Paris is steps away. Nice shower, lots of hot water. Everything functions as advertised. Marc is a great owner and very hospitable.

A good deal

  • 4 of 5

Located steps away from the Aligre market, this apartment is very small but the service, cleanliness and facility were superb.

Not a well known area of Paris but oodles to do and see in this area.

Nearest Train
400 Metres
Gare de Lyon
Car: not necessary

The apartment is 5mn walk from Gare de Lyon line 1-14 Metro or A-D RER station. Not only are all Parisian tourist attractions very close, but you can as well decide to spend the day say... in Burgundy, Lyon, Côte du Rhône, or even Avignon!

DISNEYLAND is also on a direct line. You're off the beaten tracks, in the heart of real Paris, close to all attractions and more.

I'm also a GOURMET GUIDE, and I'll be happy to give you my secret addresses and restaurant selections. You can even join my Gourmet market tour to start your stay, so you'll hit the ground running;)
