Middle East style apartment in a two-story Ottoman building. Protected heritage building as an example taught in architecture schools. The ceiling is 3.90 m high. Great ventilation from the three large windows. The main balcony looks on the sea and the other the interior courtyard. Renovations were recently completed in very good quality and tasteful furniture and the original oriental rugs have been preserved. The apartment is comfortable and very pleasant. Close to the lively and coveted area of 'Shouk Hapispeshim' (flea market) in Yafo, while far enough to enjoy calm and peace. 4 minute walk the beach at the clock tower. To the right of this beach, the sea promenade provides access to other beaches, on foot or by bicycle. Bike rentals by the clock tower. Less than 3 minute walk to the left is Yafo, one of the most coveted spots of Tel-Aviv with many and varied restaurants, concerts and exhibition venues. When you arrive at the airport, it would be useful to contact Janis (00 972 52 808 6646) and she will be ready to receive you. Janis lives in the same building on the first floor left door and will be at your disposal throughout your stay. The taxi ride from the airport to the apartment at the address (1 rehov Ben Gamaliel - Yafo) can vary between 150-170 shekels according to your time of arrival and possible traffic jams. Very often, the taxi drivers offer a flat rate. The flat rate should be in this range. Otherwise, ask for the meter. If the driver claims he does not know where the street Ben Gamliel and has no GPS, give the widely known address of 24 Shderot Yerushalayim. The apartment is part of this building 24 Shderot Yerushalayim and rue Ben Gamliel is on the other side of the building parallel to the avenue Shderot Yerushalayim. Janis will greet you and explain the layout of the apartment and how to operate appliances (washing, dishwasher, oven, etc...), air conditioning (or heating, depending on the temperature) and the hot water tank. Access to internet + Wi-Fi access is done on... with the following code: …………… (Please ask Janis). Once settled at the apartment, there is a mini-market on Shderot Yerushalayim (building next to ours) and a fruit & vegetables stand in our building on the side of Shderot Yerushalayim. Again in Shderot Yerushalayim and not far away (n.° 4) you have an organic supermarket, supermarket 24/7 (No. 11), a large pharmacy, several ATM machines. At the square, you will find an excellent French bakery "La bonne patisserie". Finally, do not hesitate to ask Janis further information you may require.

About Jean-Pierre Nakache
I am French-Israeli, married and father of two, 21 and 23 years old respectively. We live in Paris and vacation in Israel in this apartment 3 to 5 times a year. My wife Judith is a landscaper, and I am passionate about music.
Jean-Pierre Nakache purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Jean-Pierre Nakache chose Tel Aviv-Yafo
I am Franco / Israeli and I live in Paris with my family. We have recently acquired this apartment to stay here three to five times per year. The rest of the time, we rent to allow us to amortize its cost and make it available to those who prefer not to stay at hotels. The apartment is located in Yafo near the famous "Shouk Hapishpeshim» market and the sea. Suitable for those who like to feel the Middle Eastern character of Israel while being close to the part of Tel-Aviv and its Western character.
What makes this Apartment unique
4-metre ceilings and natural ventilation from three directions are an exceptional advantage compared to most apartments in Tel-Aviv with low ceilings. While the apartment is in the bustling part of downtown and the market, it is located on a side street and so is quiet. Get the feeling of living in a village near the sea and the port of Jaffa and profit of the advantages of the city.

Excellent place to stay in Yaffo
The only comments I can make on this flat are all very positive. The folks you rent from are nice and extremely helpful. Janis gave us a great introduction to the area. The location is perfect for an old town beach retreat. The amenities in the apartment are quite nice. The beds and furniture are very convertible the apartment has plenty of nice utensils. The restaurants in the area are some of the best. By far my favorite thing we did this week was just people watch. I could do it here all day and not be bored.
Thank you so much for having appreciate my apartment also because, as you know, I use it often for myself.
I was very pleased to have you as my guest and I would be pleased to have allways guests like you.
True jewel in Old Jaffa
The apartement is a true jewel, hidden in the midst of the artisan quarters of Old Jaffa. Classical layout in an old house with high ceilings (built around 1900 under the Turkish occupation). My wife and I spent a wonderful week here. The appartement is furnished lovingly und has a very comfortable double bed (good mattress) in the master bedroom. Two bath rooms and Air Conditioning, and a fully equipperd kitchen even with dishwasher and washing machine. Janis, the very helpful and charming neighbour from downstairs helps with good advice for things to do and for whatever questions one has. Within minutes one is a stroll away from in the hip streets and corners of Jaffa with its great restaurants and intereting people or the beach with its lovely white sands and the buses to Tel Aviv are just around the corner.
Wonderful clean and neat apartment, great location and very pleasant owners. It looked like the photos, all in good condition and everything is new. I'd love to come again and recommend to others.Many thanks to the owners for a wonderful holiday
Un appartement magnifique
Nous avons passé une semaine à Tel Aviv en février dans cet appartement qui est magnifique et qui date de l'époque ottomane. Il a été rénové avec beaucoup de goût et est très confortable. Nous avons pu cuisiner sans problème, l'équipement étant tout à fait adéquat. Il est très bien situé, on est à la mer en cinq minutes, des épiceries sont à deux pas, beaucoup d'excellents restaurants et le centre-sud de Tel-Aviv se trouvent à quelques minutes de marche. Nous comptons bien y revenir.
Merci pour votre appréciation sur votre séjour en Israël dans mon appartement. J'en suis très touché car votre appréciation me fait comprendre que vous vous y êtes sentie à l'aise comme si vous auriez été chez vous.
Sachez que j'ai eu l'immense plaisir de vous recevoir et que vous êtes bienvenue autant de fois que vous le souhaiteriez.
Tolles Apsrtement in zentraler Lage zu Stadt und Strand
I had pleasure to have been your host.
You are welcome again when you wish.
Spacious and cosy appartment in the center of Jaffa - recommended!
Everything in the appartment was as described and in good and clean condition. We stayed for ten days and found this is an excellent starting point to reach everything in Tel Aviv by foot or bike (the next bike rental station, grocery, bakery and supermarket are nearby).
The surrounding is usually quiet, but be aware, that you are in a vibrant town...however, we did never feel disturbed at all and there was no noise in the night.
The contact with the landlord was really uncomplicated, although he was not in town. On our arrival, his neighbour in the house took care of us, she explained everything and handed over the keys along with some very useful information for interesting sightseeing points, and she really made us feel sort of coming home. Thanks to both of you.
Thanks for your positive commentary. I am so glad to know that you enjoyed to be my guest. You are welcome to come again if it comes to you.
I share and recommand both of you for the qualities you mentionned about the contact we had and how easy it was to understand each other.
Janis told me that you left the apartment so clean that she has not much to do to clean after your departure. Thanks also for that.
My best wishes to both of you.
The apartment is merely 1/2 hour-taxi ride from the airport. Once you arrive, a wide staircase takes you to a high ceiling apartment on the upper floor of this Ottoman building listed in the architecture school records. You will be cordially received by me or by my neighbour and friend Janis that is responsible for the apartment in my absence. Janis will tell you about all the stores nearby. On Yerushalayim Avenue, less than a minute from the apartment, several buses (including 18, 25, 125) may take you to other centres of Tel-Aviv. The 40 and 41 go the central bus station and the "sherouts" to most cities in the country. In addition, many taxis circulate this avenue. In the immediate vicinity you will find all types of restaurants to fit your mood at the "Shouk Hapishpeshim» (flea market), including the famous restaurant "Doctor Shakshouka" within 2 minutes from the apartment. The beach of the tower square is mere steps away as well as the highly recommended restaurant 'Hatserot Goldman' with sea views. Next door, guests can unwind in a comfortable chair by "Honey beach" and drink a lemonade. A few feet further north along the sea towards Tel-Aviv is the prestigious restaurant 'Manta Ray' on 'Manta Rey' beach. South towards the port of Jaffa past the clock tower square, you will find numerous restaurants such as 'Hazaken véhayam' with its variety fish and seafood; the offices of TV I24news are on the last floor of the same building. A few steps more and still in the port is the 'Container', a great place for a beer and some tapas and attend concerts almost every night. Beside the 'Container' are numerous galleries as well as the "Mahsan 2" Auditorium. Continuing your walk in the same direction, you will have a beautiful walk along the beachfront or bike (bike rentals at the square) to get to the delicious restaurant 'Cassis' directly overlooking the stunning Beach "Givat haalya" and an impression of an "elsewhere". The centre of Tel-Aviv and its bustle of activity and leisure is so close that you could even walk to the very prestigious "Névé Tsedek" district in about 20 minutes. The rest is yours to discover by talking to the many tour guides.
