Great apartment in Le Marais

  • 4 of 5

Serge's apartment is charming and comfortable. My wife, daughter and I spent Christmas in Paris, and this apartment was a fabulous home base. The neighborhood is vibrant with loads of cafes and shops allowing us to have a relaxed and convenient holiday.

Serge was a pleasure to work with and I would heartily recommend this home.

This is a very central and convenient location in the heart of the Marais. Lift access which is great for a 3rd floor flat. Neat, tidy and comfortable. We enjoyed it.

Tiny, cozy apartment in FABULOUS location, but please, get some new towels

  • 4 of 5

You cannot ask for a better location.... for the food, fun and proximity to all of Paris than this apartment. Host made a friend available for our arrival for keys and walk through of apartment and departure was easy. The tiny elevator (so we didn't have to carry luggage up 3 flights) was a blessing - My kids were fascinated that they make elevators that small!

The noise other reviewers mentioned was non-existent but we are from NYC so maybe we just don't notice it anymore. That said, the apartment comes with a lot of rules about not making noise especially after certain hours and even mentions something about neighbors being quick to call the police -- that seemed a little over the top when basic common sense should apply when staying in an apartment building.

Finally, the towels... they are basically sandpaper, please replace them

About Serge

Hello, I am Serge. I do love this area of Paris, where I live.

Serge purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Serge chose Saint Gervais

I am so happy to live in this nice area of Paris that I decided to buy an apartment just the street after : you are in the heart of the old Paris, with all amenities a short walk away. A friendly atmosphere, a beautiful environment, a lot of monuments (Louvre, Notre-Dame, Beaubourg, old Marais, Picasso Museum, ...), 2 mn from subway and buses, 5 mn from small stores and main stores, ...

What makes this apartment unique

Charming and nicely decorated apartment, it is perfect for a family till 4 people, with all the comfort (elevator, internet Wi-Fi access, free international calls (except for mobiles), international channels on a flat-screen TV, ...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Serge,

I wrote a review, twice, but VRBO didn't like it both times and rejected it. We loved staying at your apartment on Rue des ecouffes. The location was perfect, the apartment suited our family well, both of the gentlemen who greeted us were kind and generous with their time. I would rent it again if and when I return.

Thank you,
