About daniel

My wife, José-France has created her company of house linen and has sold her

products in many places like the Galeries Lafayettes in Paris or Henry Bendel in New York. And before she was a buyer for a chain of department stores.

I managed my own restaurant in Paris for 30 years, called " Le Volant ", which is still working.

daniel purchased this apartment in 2008

Why daniel chose Les Archives

Since we are retired, we share out time between Paris and a nice village in the Pays Basque, South west of France, called Guéthary near Biarritz. And when we leave Paris, we rent our place and we are happy to share an apartment that we have decorated , first for us, but also with the desire to make it as elegant and confortable as possible for those who trust us and want to stay for a while in it.

Fantastic apartment in Le Marais!

  • 5 of 5

A tastefully decorated bright and airy apartment perfect for 2 people. We had everything we could possibly need far exceeding our expectations.

The modern kitchen included a 3-burner induction cooktop, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave oven. Super-comfortable

queen-size bed and pillows with fine linens, large walk-in shower (your choice of regular or rainfall), combination washer/dryer put to use as we were there for four weeks. Plenty of closet space to hang and store our belongings.

Daniel provided detailed written instruction on all appliances as well as a list of recommended neighborhood restaurants and bistros all serving excellent food.

After a day of exploring Paris we always looked forward to "coming home" to such an elegant setting. The art was beautiful (and so well framed) and we often found ourselves stopping and admiring it. We made good use of the library in particular on books related to France, Paris and Le Marais.

We have visited Paris several times in the past and this was for us the best accommodation we could have wished for ... We had a wonderful holiday immersing ourselves in French culture!

We thank you Daniel and Jose-France for providing such an "elegant" home for our extended stay.

Amazing apartment in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in this beautiful apartment. Thank you Daniel for making it available and making us feel so welcome on our arrival. The apartment is well appointed and very comfortable and Daniel has provided a wealth of great information on local attractions, places to eat, and shop.The apartment is well located on a quiet street close to the Picasso Museum and close to many sites and walking distance to outdoor markets on Thursday and Saturday. If you are looking for a perfect base from which to explore the Marais and the Right Bank; this is it.

I absolutely LOVE the apartment!!!! It is in a building with a lot of character in a very centralized location and nice neighborhood. I was pleasantly surprised that the apartment is actually bigger / larger in person than what it looks like the the photos. It is very elegant, sophisticated, tasteful and has lots of attention to detail. I love that it is also very quiet. This was my first time to Paris and staying at Daniel's apartment made my vacation even more special. I would definitely want to stay at this apartment on my next trip to Paris. I was extremely pleased and would highly recommend. Thank you Daniel!

Merci Beaucoup for everything! We had one of our most enjoyable stays of our many trips to Paris. In part because we LOVED this apartment. It was perfect in every way, the attention to details, the quality of the bed linens, the location, the lovely owners thought of everything. We usually stay in the Rive Gauche, but have decided we really like this neighborhood, the Marais. We cannot say enough for the wonderful hospitality and generosity of Daniel for sharing this elegant Paris Apartment.

Excellent Location, Spotless and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week with my son. The owner met me promptly and was extremelty gracious (had a bottle of wine waiting as a welcome gift!). Te apartment is in excellent condition, extremely well kept and clean. The shower is large and had very good water pressure (not always the case in Europe). Perfect for a couple or good friends/family wiling to share a bed (only sleeps two). The location can’t be beat (Le Marais, down the street from the Picasso Museum, and within easy walking distance to Metro Stops. We easily walked to Notre Dame (10 mins) and there are excellent shops, cafes and restaurants everywhere. The apartment is on a quiet street and there is an elevator in the building. I highly recommend it!

Lovely Apartment - Le Marais

Quiet, well appointed apartment perfectly located in Le Marais close to shopping, cafes, Picasso Museum and the Metro. The pride of ownership is evident. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants an authentic experience in Paris. The owner is very helpful and provides many recommendations for restaurants and sites to visit. It was a lovely stay. Can't wait to go back.
