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 3rd Le Marais

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.

Comfort in a quiet gallery area with conveniences/restaurants. Close to public transportation.

  • 5 of 5

Great place for 2 people. Modernly updated bathroom with large shower (washer/dryer and appreciated the hair dryer) and fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), and very comfortable bed. Lots of bright windows looking over rooftops above a courtyard, where you can see the sky. Although on the small side, it was perfect for us. Lovely antiques, comfortable furnishings, and wifi to write home to people at night. Enjoyed having access to a TV to watch the news around the world, and the stereo reminded us we were in Paris with some wonderful classical radio stations.

Daniel was a wonderful host. He gave us accurate and easy directions on how to best get there from the airport (takes a bit over an hour), and met us at the bus just a short block from the apartment. He showed us around the area, which really helped us to feel at ease. He also had maps/business cards and recommendations for places to eat/visit around the area. The nearby market and fruit/veg shops, cheese, chocolate and wine - everything so convenient. And, Daniel knew we wanted to do a special side trip to the Vimy Memorial, and did some research for us on the best way to get there. We didn't go as the weather was too rainy and unpredictable, but there were even umbrellas available for our access.

As a result, our first trip to Paris was wonderful - even more-so because of where we stayed. I didn't want to be in the tourist areas, but have the opportunity to experience every-day life in Paris. This was a perfect location to allow us to do this, while still being close to everything.

We almost overlooked the Picasso Museum, which is just steps away. It was worth the visit. We also visited all the other tourist attractions and were not disappointed. It was great to be able to come back to the apartment and recharge our batteries, and cook a meal if we wanted to. Having breakfast at the apartment (after a quick trip to a nearby bakery for fresh traditional baguette, pain au chocolate, and quiche) worked well for us to start our day with a perfect pot of tea. (Coffee was available, too.)

Thank you, Daniel, for sharing your winter home with us. It was a pleasure to meet you.

Marais Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Matched perfectly with our arts related agenda. Close to all the major galleries and several museums. Quiet location just off main street. Clean. Washer and dryer were a plus for our 9 day stay. Would definitely return and recommend.

A Jewel in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a jewel box, a designer doll house. It is elegantly furnished and impeccably decorated. It is also equipped with everything one could possibly want or need. The bathroom is large with sleek modern fixtures. I loved every minute of my stay here and was sorry when it came time to leave.

The apartment is small and compact but since I was traveling alone, I felt completely at home. I'm sure a couple would also find it comfortable but a family might find it a tight fit.

It is on a quiet side street not far from the Picasso Museum and the neighborhood has every amenity one could want.

I highly recommend this cozy apartment.

Absolutely Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a privilege to stay in. It is undoubtedly the finest accommodations we've had, be it a hotel or rental property. Every detail was exquisite, from the bed linens to the artwork. Daniel has done an amazing job providing his guests with detailed information about nearby restaurants, etc that makes you feel like a local. We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to stay in such a lovely place and hope to return in the future.

Splendid and very convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is splendid. It is light, airy and very quiet with every convenience. Very tastefully decorated-well finished but with a personal touch that made it feel like home. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a good notebook provided by the owner on how everything works in the apartment. The bed is very comfortable, pillows are very top quality as the linen. The Marais is ideal for fabulous food and bars and easy to get to all the museums and sights. The owner, Daniel, is an extremely friendly man and did everything to ensure our stay would be very pleasant. We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
