Enjoy the city like a local parisian, while staying in one of the most authentic and vibrant neighbourhoods in Paris.
The flat is located at the heart of the trendy Marais district and a few steps away from Place des Vosges, art galleries, local bistros, restaurants and places to going out. Hotel de Ville and Ile de la Cité (Notre Dame) are a quick walk from the flat.
It has a gorgeous view of the Sacre Coeur at Montmartre and it is close to transportation: metro is just a few minutes away and it can quickly take you to main tourist attractions: L'Opéra, Eiffel tower and Champs Elysées (direct metro line).
The flat is very luminous, calm, fully furnished and it is completely equipped (WI-FI, bedlinen, towels, washing machine, dishwasher, heater, and there's everything in the kitchen to cook your own home made meals, while enjoying a tasty local wine and overlooking the Sacre Coeur...). It can accomodate up to 4 people (a double bed in a separate bedroom and a sofa for two in the living room). It is located on the 6th floor of a historical building (no elevator, but I can take your luggage up - and groceries can also be delivered!). It is located 60 minutes away from Charles de Gaulle Airport (RER B and Metro lines 8, 5 and 1).
One or more weeks at my flat would allow you to:
- visit the cultural sights of the city (Place des Vosges, Eiffel tower, Champs Elysées, L'Opéra, Ile de la Cité, Louvre, Centre Georges Pompidou, etc).
- live like a parisian: start the morning reading a newspaper while having a café and a freshly baked croissant or a pain au chocolat in a nearby coffee place.
- do some shopping in the trendy boutiques of the neighbourhood.
- visit the art galleries in the neighbourhood.
- keep in shape: bike around the city using the local biking system velib.
- improve your french through a one week (or more) language course at l'alliance francaise. Pourquoi pas??
There are many reasons to visit Paris, but one of the most important aspects of your trip is to feel comfortable at the place where you'll stay!
If you are an easy-going and respectful person,
if you are looking for a calm and harmonious flat,
and you are sure that you will respect my neighbours and the house rules, then this is the perfect place for you!!!
I will be happy to share my flat with you!
The main house rule is to pay attention to the SOUND/NOISE LEVEL in the flat and in the common areas of the building.
The flat is located in a calm building where residents live all year long and they are VERY sensitive to noise.
So the main rules concerning noise are:
- to make normal noise respecting neighbours,
- it is completely forbidden to make parties in the flat,
- to use the TV and stereo at respectful sound levels,
- to keep silent in commun areas of the building lile the stairs, especially when coming in at night (not to disrupt my neighbours sleep).
- to be careful of the noise level when using the flat's balcony.
- if you smoke please do so outside of the flat or the windows.
- PLEASE NO DRUGS IN THE FLAT
In general I ask people to respect the flat, my neighbours and the building as if they were staying at their best friend's house.
He de decir que el apartamento esta perfectamente limpio con todo el menaje del hogar que puedas necesitar, silencioso para poder descansar por la noche, es idéntico a las fotos, Umberto es una persona encantadora, te ofrece y te facilita las cosas muchísimo, te da detalles del barrio, lugares para comer para pasear etc.
El apartamento se encuentra al lado de Place des Vosges y realmente muy cerca de los principales monumentos de París, puedes ir caminando a todos los lados y si prefieres ir en Metro tienes las estaciones del metro muy cerca a 5 minutos a pie. El barrio de Marais es precioso, digno de perderse por el.
Mi evaluación es fantástica, un apartamento para repetir cuando volvamos a París, nosotros eramos una pareja con un niño de 3 años y estuvimos muy cómodos en el mismo.
Gracias por todo Umberto
The Weekend in Paris was just amazing! My sister and me invited my mother to this weekend-trip. Umbertos flat was the perfect choice for our plans. It was very cosy, clean and perfectly well situated. In nighttime you almost forgot the fact to be in Paris, because it is amazingly quite in the whole area. Although Umberto had not the possibility to be in Paris, we had a really nice welcome from Amparo. Thanks again a lot for everything - i hope i have the possiblitiy to come back again once!
Le Marais was the perfect location to choose in Paris. One of the first things I did was walk to the Picasso museum a few blocks away (one of the great recommendations from Umberto). This neighborhood is very, very nice and so is the apt. The stairs were a bit of a workout- six flights up, but it's okay because you arrive in a large, open apt that's very well designed. My favorite parts of the apt were the huge windows (which brought in a lot of sunlight during the day) and the kitchenette (which was stocked with a few goodies)! The only downfall to note was the small bathroom, but it didn't hinder my experience at all. I was extremely happy with my stay.
A fantastic apartment and neighborhood! I greatly enjoyed in my stay at this property. The apartment itself was light, lovely and very functional. Perfect for a weekend or week long stay. The apartment is located nearby to many fantastic restaurants, cafes and shops. It's also close to a few different metro lines for getting around town.
Umberto is a gracious and kind host. We were unable to meet in person due to some unfortunate circumstances. But despite that I felt very well taken care of thanks to Umberto's outreach and recommendations. I would without hesitation rent from him again either in Paris or his properties in Barcelona.
I highly recommend that potential vistors read the house rules to ensure this is the right rental for you. This apartment was perfect for me. But if you are in Paris to party like a rock star - or have issues with mobility (six flight of stairs after a long day/night out is no joke!) - then this may be not be the apartment for you. But if you want a stylish place to call home in quiet and peaceful building then this is a wonderful option.
Upon Arriving in Paris, Umbert was out of the country due to a family emergency, but he called me as soon as he arrived and had a friend there to greet us when we came in. I received a phone call from Umbert who graciously explained all of the details of the apartment, along with many places to reccomend around Paris. He made me and my boyfriend feel completely at home, and the apartment was absolutely perfect.
L'accoglienza di Umbert è stata perfetta e puntuale. Presente per ogni richiesta. La casa è un piccolo gioiellino inserito in uno dei quartieri più belli di Parigi. Due passi da place de Volges. Sicuramente da consigliare
