My apartment is ideally located along the Seine river, facing Ile Saint Louis in Paris. I love books, arts and music.

Christophe was so nice and Cool with us. His apt is super french and Cool and in the best location of Paris. Super cook marais area is steso behind you and you Have a beautiful view of the river. Really a great apartment! I would definitly stay again next time in Paris: )
Although we visited Paris in the past, we never truly experienced the city until staying in Christophe's idyllic flat.
My wife and I stayed in this cosy home-away-from-home for 9 days, so we had enough time to build a nice relationship with the surrounding neighbourhood and explore nearby shops, restaurants, and boulangeries. Christophe left us with a wealth of advice and recommendations to get us started.
The flat is close enough to major Parisian attractions that we were able to participate in all typical tourist activity, but also we were delighted with how comfortable we felt even just having a night in with a fire in the hearth and a film from Christophe's classic collection playing on the projector.
On the practical side, the photos and the description of the flat are accurate, and Christophe was a great host all around. He showed us around the flat upon arrival and was available for questions throughout our whole stay.
We highly recommend staying in this flat, and we are happy that we had a chance to have this truly Parisian experience.
Thanks Christophe!...He's a very friendly & practical guy! Me and my girlfriend couldn't expect a better experience. Croissants & orange juice at the check in, which was as smooth as silk! Besides there was no problem to leave the appartment in the late afternoon as we had the flight in the evening. The appartment is really comfortable, warm & very bright...A true comfy double bed and a small equipped kitchen.
The nice view from the two big windows reminded me "Les feuilles mortes /Autumn Leaves" sung by Nat King Cole...Home full of dvds & cds which cover every genre, classical music, jazz and so on ...We'll come back again for sure if we fly again to Paris.

Christophe var nem at kommunikere med og meget behjælpelig med afrejse- og afgangstider. Han tog imod os på gaden og havde alt parat, en flersidet beskrivelse af funktionaliteter ved vaskemaskine, anbefalede restauranter i området mv. og endda et par æbler og juice i køleskabet. Det var meget velkommende!
Lejligheden svarede til beskrivelse og fotos :-)
Et råd er: Når man får så flot udsigt, får man so oftest også en vej mellem lejlighed og Seine, så vær enten vant til lidt bilstøj eller prøv det af og køb et par ørepropper. Jeg er vant til total stille kvarter, så jeg skulle lige vænne mig til det og efter en nat gik det fint.
Så ingen problemer med at anbefale Christophes lejlighed i Marais St-Paul :-)
Christophe was a fantastic host. He met us promptly when we arrived and gave a thorough tour of the apartment as well as left detailed papers on everything related to the apartment and the neighborhood. He even left a couple beers in the fridge and coffee for us.
The pros are that the apartment is right off the metro with a fantastic view overlooking the Seine river and Notre Dame. The laundry machine is very convenient and Christophe left plenty of hangers for us to hang clothing. The shower had plenty of hot water and the hair dryer had good power.
The cons are that the studio is located on the 4th floor (3rd to Europeans) without an elevator, there is no air conditioning, and its a little smokey. However, I sort of liked how those same features made the studio more "authentic Parisienne", and I felt like an actual local staying there.
The apartment looks like it does in pictures. The neighborhood is perfect. Cafe right downstairs, grocery around the corner, river walk across the road, minutes to bustling Bastille area.
Overall, great location, great view, great host, and cozy apartment.
We truly could not have asked for a better experience in Paris. Christophe was an extraordinary host - greeting us at the door, giving us tips on where to eat and what to do, and all the while smiling and speaking fluent English. He even went so far as leaving us some fruit, coffee and even a little wine. The apartment was great, clean and had everything one would need in a fantastic and convenient location. The stairs were a bit of a workout, but the apartment, in-unit laundry and it's proximity to the metro, local eateries, and sites more than made up for it. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Paris. Thank you Christophe!!
Our experience in Paris was amazing and it had a lot to do with Christophe's amazingly sweet apartment. Bath tub was awesome! He was a great host and met us at the station to show us around then apartment. We will be back! Amazing experience
Stop looking for an apartment - this is the one you want.
Most of the time when we travel, the place we stay is just somewhere to sleep. However, with Chris's apartment, it was really one of the main attractions of the trip, and made our time in Paris memorable. From the fireplace to the great views, it was spectacular on the inside, and Chris was the perfect host, meeting us on arrival and scheduling a cab for us back to the airport. The apartment has everything you could want, and there is no question we will recommend this apartment to our friends should they go to Paris. Literally the only downside is that the stairs up to this third floor apartment are a bit steep, but Chris even offered to carry our luggage up! He also answered all of our questions, and was responsive to text messages during our stay.
Bottom line - FANTASTIC APARTMENT, great views, convenient location, and an incredibly romantic and charming way to spend your time.
Many thanks to Christophe for renting us his apartment. The place was superb – located opposite Ile St Louis, very close to the metro station (line 7), fine restaurants, boulangeries, shops, markets and clubs. Working fireplace made the place very romantic (and warm). We slept like a babies (thanks to real-bed) and had a perfect rest. Kitchen and bathroom are well equipped, there is no problem with leaving all your staff in the closets. The only drawback is that it is a bit up the step stairs (third floor), so you have to leave some strength on the end of the day to get there. Wifi was working fine. Windows are of good quality, so street noise is not a problem (however even with window opened we were able to sleep without any issues, so maybe this street is not so noisy). Christophe was a perfect host – he greeted us, even despite the fact, that we arrived late in the evening/night. He also didn’t make any issues with later departure. He provide us with all the details of the neighborhood, recommended the best restaurants and shops, gave us some hints on where we could get the most required things. It was a perfect stay and we hope we would be able to return quite soon. Thanks, Christophe.
Very charming, very french flat with a really nice view. In the flat there is a collection of art books and souvenirs from all over the world. The place is in walking distance to nice partylocations and very near to a lot of Paris most interesting cultural attractions. Christoph is very helpful, exact and polite, easygoing person.
Appartement très bien placé dans le centre de Paris en plein coeur de l'un des plus beaux quartiers de la capitale. Il comporte tous les appareils fonctionnels nécessaires pour passer un très bon séjour et profiter de sa vue imprenable sur l'île Saint Louis.... Petit plus avec les transports en commun (métro et bus) qui sont situés à seulement quelques pas.
I spent a wonderful week of vacation in this beautiful Parisian apartment, located in the heart of the capital, with a very simple access to many public transports (such as metro and bus).
This apartment is ideally located along the Seine River, with a breathtaking view of the island Saint Martin, one of the most beautiful place in Paris (in my opinion ;-)).
It is very functional and clean.
I highly recommend it and I would not hesitate to go back on next holidays.
