About this listing
The ideal place for a couple on holiday!
Comfortable and bright flat, in an ideal location, offering a typically parisian vue over the roofs.
I have been living many years in this one room flat, which became pretty and nicely arranged, with a fitted kitchen and bathroom recently refurbished. It's the perfect love-nest for a couple! The windows overlooking a courtyard make the nights very quiet.
Please contact me if you have any questions !
Interaction with Guests
Most of the time I'm here to welcome the guests, and it's a great pleasure!
The area is lively and busy, with all the design and fashion shops. You will find a supermarket at the foot of the building, and many bars and restaurants nearby to make your stay easy and exciting ! Must-see places such as Notre Dame or Centre pompidou are 5 minutes-walk from there.
You can reach many transports :
- the closest is Hotel de Ville, 2 minutes-walk (metro 1 and 11)
- one station from Châtelet (metro 1, 11, 4, 7, suburban train RER A, B – airport CDG )
- many buses : lines 67, 69, 76 and 96 can take you to places like Pigalle, Eiffel tower, Le Louvre or St Germain. They are my favorite way of enjoying the city !
I will appreciate the care and respect of the flat!
Instruction for use will be left to the travellers.
- for smockers, please air the flat adequately

Amazing host, Galatee was so nice and helpful. Our plane was delayed and we didn't get to Paris until 2am and she helped out so much with our situation. The apartment itself was gorgeous, typically Parisian and we loved staying there. The neighbourhood was so lively, always stuff happening and lots of activities and places to eat, close to many tourist slots too. Very quiet apartment being behind the street. Cannot recommend highly enough, thanks so much for the opportunity Galatee!
Galatee's place was just as it looked on the listing, small and cute. My flight arrived early in the morning (before 7am)and she was unable to meet me so she left the key for her apartment at a local cafe, which was extremely kind of her. Galatee also included some "helpful" hints with the key including information on WiFi, where to take out the trash, and other little tid bits of info to make my stay a little better. She also included her contact information in case I had any questions or problems during my stay, but I didn't need to contact her.
There is no air condiditoning so if you are going in the summer and it's hot ... be prepared. She did have a fan which was a lifesaver and there always seemed to be a slight breeze due to being up on the 5th floor. Overall this was a great first experience for me using this site. It made my stay that much more special and noncommerical.
Galatée was great! Her apartment is very comfortable and clean, and she was extremely helpful and well-organized, providing information on all available accommodations. The location is great as well, walking distance to countless attractions. We'd definitely go back for our next trip to Paris.
Galatée's apartment is the perfect choice if you like to live Paris like a parisian; wonderful interior design, full of light, great view on the parisian roofs... and the Marais is a cool location! Everything is in the nearby, métro, wonderful boulangeries, cool shops and brasseries. I'd return there in an heartbeat (and so I hope to come back soon), thank you Galatée!!!
We just returned from a week-long stay at Galatée's flat in Le Marais in Paris and we already miss it! Her flat is cozy, charming, has all the amenities one needs along with stunning views of Paris rooftops. It was the perfect home base for exploring Le Marais and the many other sites in Paris (Notre Dame is just a 5-10 minute walk away).
Galatée was very communicative and greeted us upon our arrival. She made everything very easy for us. The building is on a lively street with a delicious boulangerie nearby, along with many great cafés, restaurants and shops. There is also a small grocery store right next to the building which we took advantage of. We spent many an evening after a full day of sightseeing nibbling on dinner and drinking wine back at the flat while enjoying the lovely views. We slept very well - the flat is towards the back of the building, 5 floors up (which was good exercise after eating so many delicious Parisian sweets!) and there is no street noise.
I can't rave enough about our stay - would definitely recommend Galatée's flat to others and would love to stay there again!
It is really a warm and cozy apartment in an ideal location and we had a great time in it!
Inside the apartment, everything you need for a perfect romantic stay. Art everywhere, indirect illumination, a beautiful view of the Paris rooftops, a Nespresso coffee maker, a phonograph with good music, a great revitalizing bath, and an excellent bed.
Outside the apartment, a good bakery in the corner of the street guarantee a "good morning with croissants". Galatée's apartment is in the middle of a neighbourhood of restaurants and good places to drink. And it is also near to many icons of Paris - Hotel de Ville, Notre Dame, Pompidou Centre, Seine river...
I highly recommend one staying at her place!
Galatée's appartment is a great place to stay with everything you need, a beautiful view and a great location. I will clearly recommend Galatée's appartment to others.
