The apartment is quiet in a middle of a disctrict full of bistrots with terrasses,and charming boutiques "avant garde"The parc of the Cityhall of the 3rd disctrict is only 300m away. The marché des enfants rouges is next to it . We are et 5minutes away walking from the metro hub Republique where 5 train lines take you quickly to many other places of the city
Here you have the feeling of being in a countryside little french city, but you are in the very center of Paris The flat has got 6 windows over a very quiet street almost entirely pedestrian looking more like a private square with its own « becs de gaz » street lights. The atmosphère is really parisian and romantic especially at night.
Plus it is a historical adress the "commune de Paris" used to meet there at this adress precisely.
The apartment is at 1st floor and looks south /south west with sun in the afternoon. 2 larges rooms and a decoration in the style of the 60s plus some modern items since the owner is an artist and owns a Galerie in Montmartre. Some of his creations can be seen inside and you can buy them if you ask him.
The appartment has a large bedroom for 2, a large lounge with 2 sofa (one is convertilbe) where 2 people can sleep;
You should know that there is second bedroom very tiny for one person where there is no windows except a small one on the door it is called " the boat cabin"
the bathromm is at the back and gives on a small outside garden which is on the roof of the building next door .
;This appartment is confortable, romantic in a safe area , great location . You feel like being in the "vieux paris"which still exists there .....
if you need somebody to clean the apartment during your stay ask it and you will be charged for it
A place highly recommanded for visitors who love art and picturesc places full of history .

I can't say enough great things about Jean Michel's flat. It was in a great and central location and had all the amenities we needed. He was very helpful with recommendations. Everything was clean and organized and we loved all his art around the flat. Great local Parisian experience!! ~patrice and doug, Houston, Tx
Flat was just as pictured. Lots of windows and plenty of light. Easy access to Republic metro with five different lines. Very lively neighborhood with many cafes and shops. Even after a few days at the apartment, you could discover another interesting bit of decor. I, personally, loved the little boat room in the back. We even had a film being made right at our doorstep. At 2 am they were making snow!!!
I stayed here with my family in June 2013. The apartment is very cute and (website hidden)'s exactly as described above. It's easily connected to the metro and has lots of restaurants close by. It also has a laundry service right next to it. Jean Michel is very friendly and easy to communicate with. He even helped us get a cab when I couldn't get hold of one myself!
Good apartment. I stayed with my wife and 2 kids (8yr old boys). The pluses: 1) Location - quiet lane, yet in heart of Marais lots of shops/cafes/supermarkets nearby and republic station, with many lines. 2) good sized living room and kitchen, 3) overall big size of apartment given the area. The things to consider though 1) as description mentions, the 2nd bedroom is tiny, no windows and just about fits a bed. We used the sofa bed in living room and the other bedroom thru out, as that was enough for us. 2) the apartment is not as swanky and well lit up as in the pictures, though the pictures are correct but just that the apartment interiors are not as brand new as seen, 3) there are many, many artifacts and creative pieces in the house all over, which is great and cool in some ways, but could be a little bit cluttered too. Overall: I'd say go for it, hassle free owner and a unique french artist's home experience.
Jean-Michel est très sympathique et accueillant. Appartement très agréable à vivre, dans un quartier génial.
Je conseille vivement!
We stayed 6 days at Jean Michel's place and the apartment was exactly as described. It was spacious, beautifully furnished with tasteful furniture and interesting art work, and it had everything we needed. Jean Michel was a gracious and considerate host. We felt all communication and arrangements with him had been solid and reliable. The location of the apartment was ideal. Situated in a quiet street just off the main road in a neighborhood with cafes, shops, supermarket made the apartment both a peaceful and fun place to stay.. Metro stops were also only a few blocks away.
Apartment with a good size in a great location. Region has nearby metro stations and several restaurants, bakeries and markets.
Owner promptly answered the questions and was very helpful. Really a great option to enjoy Paris. In a next stay in Paris, would return there!
