Christmas Week stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Paris several times and have always stayed in hotels. We decided to try renting this time and we could not have been happier with our choice. We loved the location of this property - off the beaten path in a true neighborhood with no other tourists around. Even though the neighborhood itself isn't touristy, it's so easy to get to those parts of the city. The owners of the house were lovely to work with - quick responses to our questions while we were shopping for which rental to book, and then once we had booked it, they sent a very detailed write-up with information about the house and the neighborhood. The house was super clean, everything in perfect working order. We like to walk as much as possible in Paris, and we also enjoy using the bus and metro systems to get around. Really close bus stops, and 3 metro stations are 5-10 minutes away. Having a roomy kitchen and dining room table for light cooking and the ability to comfortably sit down and enjoy all the incredible take-out food options of Paris was the delight of our trip. There are grocery stores very close by, a very nice little street market on Sunday mornings in front of St. Louis hospital where we bought our provisions for the week. This is not a property for children or people who aren't steady on their feet - the floors are concrete (but the house was not at cold in the winter while we were there) and there are a few concrete steps to get into the main bedroom and into the bathroom - just be a little careful and you will have no problem. Honestly, I can not think of one thing that wasn't perfect for us this past week. Whenever our next trip to Paris may be, I hope this place is available, as we are really spoiled now! And lastly - the deposit is rather hefty, but it not unreasonable as the house has very nice furnishings and original art. We were thrilled and surprised that the deposit was refunded to our credit card almost immediately upon our departure! We were expecting that to take some time, as refunds often do, but this last detail really, really was special and appreciated.

"Real Paris"

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our three week trip to France; two of them staying in this apartment. We are three (two adults and our eleven year old son). We loved: the kind and prompt check-in with Gurvan after a long, overnight flight; the quiet, verdant, hyper-secure/almost zen setting within a bustling, delightfully diverse & very urban neighborhood; proximity to various Metro and SCNF stations which made exploring Paris (and beyond) a breeze; the extremely functional/all important air conditioning in both bedrooms , ditto re washer & dryer, rain shower, extremely modern kitchen, excellent wi-fi, fantastic radio with classic jazz, smart lighting, cable tv with unfortunate access to us & international news. You do feel like you're crashing a very cool, well-travelled friend's city apartment. We all loved it and would return again in a heartbeat.....so sad that it's over.

An exceptional experience! A unqiue pace in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (including our 2 kids of 9 and 14) stayed in this wonderful property for a week this Summer and could not speak more highly of our experience. Logistics were handled without issue by owner Benoit well in advance of our arrival, Gurvan (who greeted us upon arrival) provided everything we needed for our stay, and was available throughout to help us navigate restaurants, reservations and taxis. This property is located minutes from canal St. Martin and offers a true Parisian neighborhood experience - restaurants filled with local residents, local farmers markets on weekends, neighborhood shops who remember you, FANTASTIC local restaurants and a 'local' Parisian experience. The property is very comfortable, and feels like you are visiting your friends home. We were able to cook some wonderful meals at home in the well appointed kitchen and share family time in the open, airy rooms of the apartments. For us the property had I it all. The apartment is located in the interior of a large Parisian block, and for this reason is completely isolated from the street noise we encountered during our stay at another property. We were able to sleep at night with the upper floor windows open and actually wake up to the sound of singing birds some mornings - this in middle of busy Paris. We of course ventured out of the area to visit the many sites of Paris, which was easily navigated via the Goncort metro station which is only a short walk from the apartment. We dined at local Cambodian and French restaurants, and made daily morning outings to a nearby bakery that is appropriately considered one of the best in Paris (it is!). In brief, this wonderful property provides a quiet Oasis from the bustle of the city and yet is in a vibrant, youthful and vivacious neighborhood. For we enjoyed the local experience we were looking for. We had a wonderful stay, and would certainly stay in the same property again should we have the opportunity to visit once again. Thank you again to Benoit and Gurvan for a great family experience!

beautiful artful property in diverse neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Benoit and Alain have a beautiful home in the 10th arrondisement. It was a privilege to stay here. We enjoyed everything. First, Gurvan, whom I will call the concierge, was amazing. He really spent time with us to show how everything works down to the smallest detail. Thank you so much! Next, this home is in a "non-touristy" area of Paris, which makes it all the better. This property is in a diverse area and we loved it for that! It is such an honor to be able to stay in a home where art is such a central theme. So, know that you are actually renting someone's home and that it is beautiful. There is a gated entrance to a private passage and then another to the gate to the courtyard of the home and then a key to the home itself. Total security! Once inside, you will be in awe of the artwork and contemporary design of the furnishing of this home. The lighting is exquisite in design, except for the bathroom which lacks a bright light for make-up application (but don't let this stop you because the property is phenomenal). The art is contemporary and eclectic and intriguing, The first floor contains the kitchen, open dining area, and living room. The kitchen is fully equiped with all cookware, dishware, and serverware. The dining area has a wonderful large table that easily seats eight. The living room is so peaceful and has beautiful red leather (roche bobois style) chairs and a small sofa and many moveable end tables. There is also a small WC on the first floor as well as a washer and dryer, The second floor contains two bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen size bed and a small deck with lovely plants. The second bedroom has a great skylight and a desk. The bathroom is beautifully styled with a tub and a separate shower.

The only reservation for this property is the stair case without any handrail. This would not be a good property to rent with children. It is truly a beautiful property, but there is no handrail for the staircase. This was not any issue for us. In summary, it was a beautiful home (and we thank Benoit and Alaiin) and it was so nice to stay in an actual home beca use you get the chance to appreciate the owners point of view and art collection. We would definitely rent this property again. Thank you sp much for a great experience,

The apartment is truly a gem. Well-located, near metros, shops, great restaurants, and yet off of the street (no noise) made this a perfect destination. The place is quite spacious for a Parisian apartment and having a large kitchen was an extra treat. Everything is impeccably organized, clean, and the owners communicated with us throughout our stay, just to make sure everything was fine. We didn't need the check-in though... all was perfect, a real home, warm and inviting and large enough for a family of 4. I will highly recommend the location to friends that I know and we hope to revisit in the future. Perfect, thank you for a wonderful stay!

Stylish and Practical

  • 4 of 5

Apparently part of a gated creative and residential community, this property had the character of both an artist's studio and a two storey family home. The downstairs lounge and dining area were surrounded by contemporary art works, while the kitchen was handy and fully stocked with cooking equipment and utensils, so that you could comfortably eat in if you weren't inclined to eat out at one of the many nearby restaurants. The two upstairs bedrooms would conveniently suit a couple and two teenagers (us) or two couples. The floor of the shared bathroom was made of round stones set in concrete that were comforting on your feet after a long day's walking around Paris. The owner supplied much useful information about local markets, bars, cafes and restaurants. The only reservation was the lack of a railing for the stairs, which fitted in with the adult decor, but might be a risk for very young children. We very much enjoyed our stay at this stylish and practical property.
