'Your comfortable, well-equiped apartment was ideal for us for our 9-day stay in Paris. The location allowed us to walk nearly everywhere in the city and each day we stumbled upon another great find in the neighborhood for a wonderful meal or a café. Despite its location in the heart of the city, the apartment was quiet and provided a wonderful resting place after busy days. We will be happy to recommend the apartment to friends and family.' A bientot A & M.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you for a wonderful Parisian experience - what a joy to be able to be here in such a great location! Easy to find everything one could possibly want!

You're going to have to come to California sometime! We so appreciated your apartment and indulged in the movies. Your explanation book was brillant! Great instructions.

We experienced many great things but the ease of living here for 9 days was what made it all the more enjoyable. How lucky to be in such a vibrant city!

Thank you again,

Au Revoir,

As others have stated, Jean-Pierre is a delight. E-mails were answered promptly with useful suggestions & information. A warm welcome, a bottle of yummy wine and a thorough explanation of all the things we needed to know for a stress free stay were provided by J-P. Opening onto a quaint little courtyard, the apt. Is great for seniors. Street noise is minimal despite its high energy vibe. Good lighting in the bathroom and reading lights in the bedroom. The kitchen is well appointed although we did no cooking due to the many restaurants in this lively area. The little Bistro across the street served reasonable and tasty meals. Most of Paris is walkable from the apt but 2 major Metro lines, Saint Michel and Odéon are 5 minutes away along with many bus routes for longer journeys. A fabulous selection of tour books are available, so no need to bring your own. All in all I would stay in the apt again and would give it 5 stars if it were redecorated. The damage deposit was promptly returned without my having to request it. Thank you Jean-Pierre.

Jean-Pierre was an excellent host. Due to some repairs that needed to be made to the property at the time of our trip, Jean-Pierre arranged for us to stay at another apartment in the neighborhood- which was beautiful. Jean-Pierre communicated with us before our trip and was available to meet us at the apartment when we arrived. The neighborhood was perfect! We loved walking through the streets to cafes and it was convenient to get everywhere we wanted to go by metro. I would definitely come back to stay again!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in the perfect location for our visit to Paris. Located on a small lively street with tons of restaurants, it's centralized within walking distance to many of Paris' main attractions. It's also close to the St Michael metro station so it's easy to get to more outlying areas like Versailles, Montmartre, and CDG airport all with direct service (no transfers necessary).

Jean Pierre is a wonderful host who has thought of everything you could possibly need. He is friendly, informative, helpful, and speaks perfect English. The apartment is small, clean, quiet, and well equipped. A perfect size for a family of 4. It also has a washing machine (convenient for those of us who travel light) and plenty of Paris guides and maps for your use, games, free phone service to the USA, and a large selection of movies (although we never turned on the TV once). We simply could not have asked for more. When in Paris this will be our first choice of places to stay. Thank you JP.

Excellent location to walk to, or get a ride to anything you would want to do in Paris. Jean-Pierre has thought of everything you would need for your stay. The apartment was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The first place we will look on our next trip to Paris.

Peaceful escape in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples and all of us were thrilled with our stay. While the apartment is small and lacks closet space, the incredible location more than makes up for it. Just steps to SO much, but when you enter the courtyard all is peaceful and quiet. This is the way to see Paris without breaking the bank. Don't miss the Lebanese take out next door!
