Why Cecile Gabillet chose Saint Gervais

Le Marais is a wonderful neighborhood of Paris. There are plenty of fancy restaurants and cafés, trendy shops and art galleries, open makets, and above all, it's so close to every thing that you want to see or visit when you're in Paris.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is such a cosy place to stay at! The antique exposed beams and the stone walls bring a special charm to this authentic Marais apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Dear Cecile,This has been the greatest experience for us, we stayed at the Marais Authentic for 9 days with our 11 years old son.We arrived in the middle of the night (2 am) and the key was waiting at the exact place you hid it and there was a folder in the apartment with operating instructions to everything in the apartment and important information about the facilities in nearby streets (Metro, recommended restaurants, bars and patisserie etc) – You thought of everything!! (The detailed zoomed map of the apartment location and neighbourhood spots had 10 duplications so that you can take it with you and find your way on the go!!).The apartment is equipped with all you need for a short or long stay. The kitchen enabled us to make a dream come true- visit the food markets or the supermarket and buy all the great cheeses, sausages, breads and other great foods and enjoy a breakfast or any other meal in the apartment, taking our time with no rush anywhere.Our bed was heaven; the mattress and linen were a great treat after a long day of walking.The free international telephone saved us a fortune, the free wireless internet connection and the combined washer and dryer were saviours.The Marais Authentic is perfectly located within a walking distance from most major attractions (Pompidu Center is 10 minutes walk, so is the Louvre, Notre Dam, Bastille, Picasso Museum, Place des Voges and St Germin) the St Paul's metro is 2 minutes walk. The Marais is lively day and night, most stores in the Marais are open on Sundays and close late during the week (stores in Paris are closed on Sundays so this is a great change) and a corner from the apartment there is a small grocery that is open until 21:00, Saturdays and Sundays so you are never short of milk etc. We hope to come back next year to Paris and the Marais Authentic!!Best Regards”

Great home base in Marais

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the first week of November 2017 and had a great time. The apartment is tucked away in an area with various shops, restaurants, and boutiques. Even though the area is busy, the apartment is quiet and peaceful due to it's being in the center off of the courtyard. We didn't use the kitchen (too many great cafes, restaurants and pubs nearby) but it looked fully stocked. We loved Auld Alliance Scottish pub, La Favorite, and Chez Mademoiselle but there were a ton of others! Cecile was a great hostess, sending us all necessary information before our trip and setting up transportation for us, too.

lovely and cosy

  • 5 of 5

This apartment suited my wife and I perfectly as it only had 1 flight of stairs and is very 'cosy' as per its name. Great part of Paris and will return.. thank you Cecile. perfectly clean and lovely presentation.

This apartment is beautifully located in the Marais, just steps to almost anything you could possibly want in Paris- similarly close to the St. Paul stop on the 1 line which takes you pretty much anywhere in Paris either directly or with a simple transfer. Your hostess Cecile is very organized and responsive. Arrivals are well planned and she sent very detailed information on how to enter the building in which you will find this 2nd floor apartment. The apartment is indeed cosy (aka small) but very functional. It is clean and comfortable and equipped with a coffee pot (critical), washer/dryer, and most things that one would need during a short stay. The king size bed was comfortable though linens could be upgraded. The same could be said of the towels which could also be upgraded. Closet space was adequate which is important. The bathroom was small but the shower had excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water. We did find the apartment a bit dark due to being on a low floor. Some additional lighting would be of benefit. In all we had a nice week in the apartment- its the perfect place from which to launch your daily activities. There is so much to do in Paris that we spent very little down time in the apartment. Cecille is a very nice hostess who will do her best to make sure your stay is fine. Hope this is helpful.

A wonderful little gem in Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in the perfect location for us....very close to food, transportation and shops. The beds and linens were high quality and comfortable. Luckily for us, the weather was slightly cool/rainy when we arrived and the apartment seemed cool all the time so we didn't need the portable air conditioner. The only thing I would mention is that if you're used to super cold air conditioning in the heat of summer there isn't any central AC in this charming historical building- just the portable unit. Luckily for us, we didn't need it and had a very nice stay in the apartment. Cecile was wonderful to work with too.
