About Mr Jean-Jacques BERNARD

Hello! I use to travel all around the world for my job or for touring and I particularly appreciate sharing experience with people.

My main hobby is photography and I have a passion for Paris history, especially le Marais quarter.

I pay attention to welcoming my hosts the best possible way by giving them all information they could need regarding the apartment and the neighbourhood.

I always try to think 'what would I need if I was my own host ?'.

Mr Jean-Jacques BERNARD purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Mr Jean-Jacques BERNARD chose Le Marais

Welcome to Le Marais, the cultural and historic quarter of Paris. This area is the center and the oldest part of Paris, and contains many of its museums, art galleries, and historic sites.

The apartment is located in Rue Beautreillis, a quiet and charming street of the 4th district, one of the most residential districts downtown Paris.

It is ideally located between Place des Vosges (with many art galleries, shops and stores) and Ile Saint-Louis on the Seine River, close to Village Saint-Paul gathering antiques and artists shops, and a few blocks to Rue Saint-Antoine and Place de la Bastille where you can find all shops, cafes, restaurants and museums. Discover the outstanding historic monuments of Le Marais, mainly Hotel de Sens and Hotel de Sully. Walk over the Pont-Marie Bridge to enter Ile Saint-Louis, then to Ile de la Cité to reach Notre-Dame Cathedral. You could spend your whole trip just exploring the areas within walking distance from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Surrounded by the most historic part of Paris City, you will enjoy being located near the most famous museums as Le Louvre, Musée Carnavalet, Musée Picasso, Musée d’Orsay, Maison de Victor Hugo. As the apartment is close to all major subway lines, you can visit the most exciting monuments of Paris, as the Eiffel Tower, the Triumph Arch on top of the Champs-Elysées Avenue or the Sacré-Coeur chapel in Montmartre. Enjoy the worldwide famous cabarets as Le Lido, Le Moulin-Rouge, Le Crazy-Horse after an unforgettable dinner in one of the thousands Parisian restaurants to appreciate the French cuisine.

It is an exceptional apartment in a very central area for a successful stay in Paris.

With all the nearby amenities (shops, cafes, museums, metro lines), you will feel like a true Parisian in the “City of Lights”.

Great place to stay in PARIS for a week

  • 5 of 5

We had no trouble with our arrival and our friendly and generous host Jean-Jacques spent an hour explaining the entire apartment and how things work. There was everything we needed in the apartment and it felt just like home. Location is central and quiet with a good atmosphere, many good restaurants and boulangeries nearby. There is also a choice of three supermarkets.

This apartment is the best we have rented in Paris.

Perfect apartment for two in "Le Marais"

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect, as was Jean-Jacques in greeting us and responding promptly when needed. The apartment with one bedroom and separate living/kitchenette room was just right for a couple. And you cannot get a better location. The Marais is a great neighborhood for shops and restaurants, and the apartment is a ten-minute walk from Notre Dame. I also enjoyed running on the Seine starting very near the apartment and enjoying beautiful views as far up as I wanted to go. Jean-Jacques restaurant recommendations were spot on as well. I particularly recommend Vins de Pyranees on the same street and...I forget the French way of saying the season of cherries(?) around the corner. The latter is more relaxed but both were fantastic. Enjoyed the bar upstairs at Vins de Pyranees too, as well as complimentary cherry liquer from the owner of...the cherry place that I forget how to say in French. Anyway, if you're a couple looking for a nice hotel alternative you would be well advised to take this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Edward, for the nice comment. I do appreciate! Nice to see you enjoyed your stay in my apartment and the restaurants in the neighborhood, including "Le temps des Cerises" (the cherry season!). Hope you had a safe trip back home. Come back whenever you want!

Charming apartment in a great neighborhood close to many attractions in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very welcoming and accommodating when we arrived. He meticulously went through the specifics of the apartment and described the neighborhood including the locations of grocery stores, restaurants and pharmacies. Jean-Jacques kindly provides a binder with all the necessary information for the apartment - the TV, WiFi, appliances, phone numbers, and the highlights of the neighborhood. We found the neighborhood to be very safe for walking, but when restrained by time, Uber had no problem finding us quickly. Taxis can be flagged down two blocks in either direction from the apartment. The apartment is small but charming, clean and modern - perfectly adequate and comfortable for two people. The toilet is separate from the bathroom which we found to be convenient. The shower has great pressure and adequate hot water for at least two comfortable consecutive showers. There is a washer, but no dryer. However, we were able to dry our clothing on an electric towel dryer. The owner provides nice towels, extra blankets and pillows as well as a hair dryer. The kitchen's appliances are modern and worked perfectly. The sofa is actually a sofa-bed which we did not use. There's a small TV with numerous French channels, only four of which are English (all news channels). There is a DVD but you may want to bring your own European coded DVDs. American DVDs will not play on European DVD players. There was an annoying audio feedback when watching TV, but none when watching a DVD. We watched very little TV so this was really a non-issue for us. The owner provides a land line phone for calls using WiFi to land line numbers only for free. We never used it. Outlets are plentiful. The living room and the bedroom have large windows overlooking the street below. Folding metal shutters provide privacy, but are easily opened to enjoy the view. The bedroom has a very large dresser with drawers and space for hanging clothes. The bed is comfortable for two people - the mattress has no box spring so it's low to the ground in the typical European style. It's easy to bang your foot on the corners of the bed so watch out for them. There is no air conditioning, but the weather during our stay in October did not require it. There is a fan available, but we did not need it. All in all, we loved this apartment and would gladly stay here again. The owner makes every effort to ensure a comfortable stay and it really shows. Thank you Jean-Jacques!

Little nest in the heart of the Marais!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication with owners, lovely reception. The apartment had all the amenities one could want, including a washing machine, which helped us pack lightly! Everything was very clean and fresh. The situation is ideal, a hop and a skip from Place des Vosges, with food shops galore nearby, a Monoprix, traiteurs, fromagerie and gourmet fruit and vegetable store, as well as florist, and many clothing stores. Place de la Bastille is nearby as well, with great brasseries, and the Richard Lenoir green market, and Paris Vélib city bikes. We had a lovely stay and recommend this address whole-heartedly! We will be back! Owner was very quick to respond to an inquiry on our part. We came back very happy! Marie-Christine Perry

Wonderful apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed eight nights in this wonderful apartment in the Marais district. Jean-Jacques was there to greet us to show us the apartment and to answer any questions we might have. He also left a terrific book with suggestions of restaurants, shops, museums, etc. in the area. The apartment is perfect for two people-comfortable, super clean, and inviting. It has everything you would need - a great little kitchen, living room area, separate bedroom, and nice-size bath. It's a few minutes walk from the metro and an easy walk to Notre Dame and many other Paris sights. I highly recommend this apartment and would definitely come back again!
