My name is Philppe Vialas. I am a teacher and i live in the center of Paris.
A spacious, charming apartment in a great neighbourhood. Next time I go to Paris, I will try to stay here again. It was perfect. I was especially delighted with the detailed advice about neighbourhood shops and restaurants Philippe provided. Many thanks for your hospitality, Philippe!
The best stay we ever had in Paris!!!! The flat and the location are really great, and Philippe is an amazing host, attentive and helpful.
The area is quiet but surrounded by every kind of shop and restaurant you can desire, near to the Canal St. Martin. The metro's and bus's stops are close, and the Marais area is at a short walking distance.
The apartment is beautiful and clean, and offers everything you could ever need for a short or long stay. We enjoyed so much being in a typical parisian home with a lot of books, videos and cd's! Cats are very nice, and after a little time they get used to your presence; Philippe left us all the necessary for their feeding and cleaning, and taking care of them was very easy.
I hope to stay again "chez Philippe" and I reccomend it to everyone!
Logeren in het appartement van Philippe is een weldaad! Ik verbleef er bijna een volle week en dat is uiterst goed meegevallen. Het is een stijlvolle plek, met een eigen karakter en voldoende ruimte (wij waren er met 4, soms 3).
Prima ligging, fijne buurt!
5 welverdiende sterren!
UN. Philippe est merveilleux, très sympathique. On a eu droit à une petite ballade dans le quartier.
DEUX. L’appartement est merveilleux. Dormir dans une bibliothèque (la chambre avant), quel repos !! L’appart est grand, lumineux et tranquille.
TROIS. Miou est gentil.
QUATRE. Le quartier est intéressant. Sans être touristique. Et les pistes cyclables à proximité.
we really enjoyed our time in Philippe's appt. It is excellent value - especially for its size. it felt like home, very comfortable, and Philippe's book collection is so impressive! Philippe was very generous in his communications and really helpful with all sorts of things we needed - beyond the call of duty. wifi was great and worked well.
we loved the area - just out of the tourist zone, bu in walking distance of the Marais and the Isle... hooray! we had a great time.
thanks Philippe! Gretchen, Nick and Keir.
I cannot imagine a better stay in Paris. Philippe was so nice and helpful. We really appreciated all the written information about restaurants, etc. The apartment was beautiful and spotless. The bed was so comfortable, the rooms were bright and airy, and the location was great. This was by far our best airbnb stay. I would stay here again, and recommend it to everyone! Really nice towels and sheets as well. Having a cat was a plus for us, and made it feel like a home away from home. Wifi worked perfectly, lots of dvds to watch. Cozy!
Philippe's apartment is located in great area - you get the feel of local parisian life as its quite remote from the tourist spots and hotels but at the same time its in a walkable distance from all major places- 20 min walk to Notre Dame and Louvre. The flat is cosy, spacious and full of character. We had amazing holiday and this apartment was the best choose !!! I am so happy we chose it. Philippe is a very kind person. Thank you Philippe and I hope we stay at your place again !
This apartment is fantastic. Great location and wonderful space. Everything you could ask for to make your stay in Paris easy and care free. Philippe is a very gracious host and most helpful with anything you ask of him. He provided wonderful instructions about his apartment and local tips on the best places to shop and eat. The cat was lovely and very easy to care for once she felt comfortable with me in her home. Thank you Philippe for a great stay in Paris.
Philippe is a very thoughtful and congenial host. The apartment is large and very well located. I cooked many meals in the kitchen with ease. There are plenty of spices and essentials.
You may experience some noise sleeping in the master bedroom. Sometimes it is dead silent and other times loud. Philippe made his daughter's room in the back facing the courtyard available for sleeping, and it is perfectly quiet. I used earpluggs and slept in the master bedroom just fine.
I didn't use the wireless, but opted to connect via ethernet cable to the internet and had fast reliable service.
The apartment is very beautiful, with newly restored wood floors and marble fireplaces with large gilt mirrors. Very charming and personal. There is a clothes washer and plenty of towels and bedding are provided. A very comfortable place to hang out or to come home to after a day of exploring.
If you go to the Monoprix, it is on the left side of the street, which branches. So when you cross the square (Republic) cross over to the other side of the street and you will find it. Also, if you open the kitchen window there are pots of fresh herbs growing, even a bay leaf tree.
The cat is very sweet. She takes a while to warm up to you, but then she is your best pal.
I had a great experience staying here. Merci Philippe!
We had a great trip in Paris. Philippe provided helpful information before our travel and was available to answer questions while we were in Paris. The apartment was very nice, close to the metro and amenities. Really positive experience, I usually stay in hotels but will now use airbnb when possible. Staying in an apartment made the trip more like a home away from home.
Philippe, was a perfect guest. With his family he spent some days at my apartment, so I can say that he is really respectful, clean and that he really took care of my place. His italian is very good and it was really easy to communicate with him. I would recommend him to any host in the airbnb community.
Philippe is more than welcome to come again.
Philippe and his daughters were lovely guests, and it was a pleasure to host them. It was fun chatting with Philippe, and I wish they could have stayed longer. They were clean, quiet and easy to communicate with. I hope they return!
Plilippe and his daughters were great guest and hope to see tham again someday
Very nice Guest!!!! Hope to see you again!
