About Philippe M.

My name is Cecile. I'm French and I own and manage my apartments as a full time job. My apartments are 100% legal (it's rarely the case in Paris) so you can stay with me in total confidence. I'm passionate about this and do my best to satisfy my guests and keep the apartments on high standards.

I welcome you in your home in Paris and offer you the opportunity to live like a Parisian for a few days...

Philippe M. purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Philippe M. chose Saint Gervais

Le Marais is my favorite part of Paris. I've always loved hanging on in the charming streets of this area, and feel like if I was in a cute little village. There are plenty of fancy restaurants and cafes, trendy shops and art galleries, open markets, and above all, it's so close to every thing that you want to see or visit when you're in Paris. This apartment is rented on long term only.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very spacious thanks to its two floors and no lost space, and it has also lots of charm thanks to its old beams. The location can't be beaten. Down the building stands a cute little square with trees, benches, and several tasty restaurants. In the very street, you'll find a delicious bakery, a grocery store open everyday, 4 restaurants, one art gallery, etc...

Great apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything you could need and was very clean when we checked in. The Marais neighborhood is fantastic for exploring the city and there are several Metro stops nearby. I would definitely recommend this apartment to a couple or small family. The pull out couch bed was very good.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as the pictures show. It is really in a nice / easy location and we were very happy with it. It was about a 5 minute walk to the M1 subway line and from there you could get anywhere. Notre Dame was about an 8 minute walk. One block away there are 5-6 restaurants and if you go 2-3 blocks there are more than 20.

The apartment was very clean and the bathroom was quite modern.

Perfect pied-à-terre

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment for our 3 night stay in Paris. Just what we needed: comfortable, everything we needed, with space to relax, and all stylishly decorated. It's exactly as the pictures depicted - perhaps even a little larger than we thought! Apart from a few very minor niggles, which we've advised the owner, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend. As and when we return, we'd happily stay here again.

A very nice option for Paris

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent experience with this property. Cecile is a good man who communicates thoroughly, efficiently, and effectively and does what he says he will do. The apartment was clean, neat, and enjoyable, with comfortable bed and pull-out couch. The location is outstanding for tourists like us, 3 minute walk to Hotel du Ville Metro station with bakery on corner, small grocer down the street, and several restaurants immediately nearby. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, and noise from the street was not objectionable at all. Yes, the stair is a narrow winding stair but this isn't a big deal if known (we did). The kitchen was a nice convenience, as was the clothes washer and dryer. The dryer requires a long time to dry clothes, which you should know, but it's effective for small loads. Cecile has arranged for the phone in the apartment to be available toll free for local calls as well as calls to land lines in some other countries (like US), which is great. I had expected built-in air conditioning based on my (incorrect) understanding. Instead, there are portable/floor-standing units upstairs and downstairs with exhaust hoses that must be stuck outside the respective window and the window sashes tied together. There is a gap and cool air escapes, which struck me as objectionable initially but it was effective so I can't really say that it's a problem. Cecile has a great driver named Phillipe who is a very nice man and dependable; we used for out airport return early AM and recommend. I believe you will be very pleased with this apartment for your time in Paris.
