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!
Humberto was an amazing host!! Everything was perfect when we arrived. He let us many things for breakfest and gave us all the instructions for our stay. Our flight arrived late, but he waited for us patiently. We don't have any complains and we hope to stay in Humberto's apartment again as soon as possible. Thank's for everything, Humberto!
Lo primero; Humberto es encantador y nos dio muchas recomendaciones y consejos de París. Ademas antes del viaje se comunico con nosotros por Whatsapp para interesarse por la hora de llegada, ayudarnos con las maletas, itinerario para llegar al apartamento, etc.
El apartamento es igual que en las fotos, muy luminoso, limpio,en buen estado y moderno. Tienen todo tipo de comodidades y menaje, a excepción de ascensor, claro, pero eso ya lo sabíamos. Ademas, está perfectamente situado en pleno barrio de Le Marais y dos calles de las plaza de Vosgos. Tiene el metro muy cerca y muchos comercios para hacer compra, restaurantes, tiendas, etc. La experiencia general ha sido muy buena y ha cumplido nuestras expectativas. (Por poner una pega diría que el baño es un poco pequeño). Muchas gracias Humberto por esta estancia tan agradable.
Humberto's place in Le Marias surpassed all my expectations. I stayed there by myself for two weeks and couldn't have asked for a better apartment, location and host.
The apartment was spacious, bright and perfectly located. The place was clean and had all the extra amenities you need to cook or just enjoy a night in (which I had the luxury of during, due to my long stay). Even though it was on the six level the view of Sacre Coeur from the living room, alone was reason enough to climb the stairs, plus I found it beneficial to have a little extra workout after eating all the amazing food in the area and around the city.
The neighbourhood was perfect, with a vast array of cuisines both walking distance or a short metro ride away. There is a grocery store and a perfect patisserie right near the apartment. If you are travelling there on a Sunday, there is no better area to stay then in Le Marais as all the shops and restaurants are still open. Whilst everywhere else in Paris is virtually deserted, Le Marais is bustling with people, and has an amazing atmosphere. There are three metro stations that are all walking distance from Humberto's place, however I found it easier to just catch the metro from the closest station with major metro hubs just a couple of stops away.
Humberto was the perfect host, before arriving he was very prompt with returning emails and sending additional information about the apartment and neighbourhood. Upon arrival he spent the time explaining everything in the apartment and gave me a long list of restaurants and sights to see throughout my stay.
I had the greatest time in Paris and I know that it is because I felt safe, secure and comfortable in the apartment. I would definitely stay at Humberto's place again and would recommend it to everyone.
We loved staying in Humberto's apartment. The location couldn't be better and his place is stylish and clean. We enjoyed every minute. Humberto is a great host and very easy going. For sure we are coming back when we want to feel like living in Paris again. :)
Humberto was wonderful and accommodating in every way. Even while in a different time zone, he stayed up late to ensure our safe arrival, and to answer any questions we had about Paris and the flat. The flat was clean and orderly, as well as comfortable. My family would recommend leasing from Humberto!
We spent Christmas 2013 at Humberto's place and had the most wonderful experience! The apartment's location was beautiful. He is close to many restaurants and shopping and the Metro. It is clean and well stocked! We did not get to experience the charm of the area since we were only here for 2 nights. The view of the Sacre Coeur was breathtaking and convinced us that we had to see it. Humberto was so attentive and helpful every step of our trip. He arranged for a taxi to bring us to the airport, as well as gave us various recommendations for places to eat. Even though he was in the States at the time, he always checked in with us to make sure things were ok. It was a perfect place to stay for Christmas! Thanks Humberto!
Humberto was the perfect host for our stay in Paris. Before arriving he provided us with a list of places to visit, as well as very detailed instructions regarding the apartment (directions etc). Despite the fact we arrived early, he was happy to meet us at the local café to take our bags up to the apartment before it was cleaned. Only before we had a tour and he made sure we were entirely comfortable (including providing bread, yoghurt and coffee for breakfast!), did Humberto unleash us onto the streets of Paris.
The apartment was superb - clean and comfortable, with a stunning view of the Sacré Coeur. After a full day of walking, I found myself really looking forward to coming back to such a homely base! It included all the necessary furnishings, as well as extras, such as a washing machine, dish washer and cooker, should anyone stay longer than a weekend. However perhaps the greatest feature of this apartment is it's location. As described, right in the heart of the Marais, you are perfectly placed to stroll the beautiful streets and shops that surround Place des Vosges.
Our timetable was such that our train back to London was in the late evening, but once again, Humberto was very accommodating and allowed us to keep our bags in the apartment until then, saving us the hassle of having to drag them around the city for the day - which was much appreciated!
Whilst a long weekend in Paris was always going to be special, it was made especially so by this gem of an apartment and its generous owner.
Great little apartment in Paris. Walking distance to 3 Metro stations, and in a very nice area. The apartment itself is also nice, modern and very comfortable.
Humberto is a great host. Super fast communication, will always be available if anything goes wrong, gives you tips on where to stay and helped with out luggage when we left, as he was in Paris on that day.
A great apartment and a great host. Humberto was very available to help and to advice. His character plus the value of the apartment will make your stay unforgettable!
Humberto has been the best host ever. He is very gentle and
helpful, he helped us with the heavy luggage and has given to us a lot of tips about the area and about Paris. He can let you feel as you have ever been living in the city.
The house was very clean and very comfy, there's nothing that we missed.
The view is great, above the parisian roofs, you can see Montmartre and Sacre Coeur too.
