Musician from Paris. Welcome to France. I hope that my unique apartment will allow you to enjoy the Marais, discover the city and leave with amazing memories.
Alexandre was prompt, helpful, friendly and made our arrival and departure proceed smoothly. he helped make our stay a success.
Alexandre's apartment in Le Marais is everything you see in the photos and much more: a truly lovely place with a feel of European elegance in its refined furnishings, handsome hardwood floors, high ceilings and many windows filling it with so much light.
We were two couples and very comfortably shared the space, starting from the morning hours when we used the apartment's espresso maker for cappuccino at home (after getting croissant and pain au chocolate at the local boulangerie!), and again at night after a day of walking around Paris, came back to have an aperitif in the lovely living room while listening to classical music on the stereo. The bedrooms are beautiful, spacious and quiet. Rue du Perche is small and quaint, right in the heart of Le Marais, ideal for shopping, exploring and dining.
And Alexandre is such a charming young man. He was on hand for any need, keeping in touch with texts and often went out of his way to help us, doing more than what might be asked of a host. His gracious help on our last day of meeting up with us, reserving a taxi and taking care of our needs, well over our check-out time, was greatly appreciated.
Merci beaucoup Alexandre, for your hospitality, we hope to return soon!
An excellent and spacious accommodation, wonderfully located for exploring the Marais and environs, complete with modern appliances, bathrooms and functional kitchen, fast internet, as well as a huge living room. Alexandre was a perfect host, on-time and highly communicative, and our stay for 4 adults from California went really smoothly. We recommend this property highly and would be pleased to stay here again.
Alex is really a nice person, and he welcome us and waited for several hours.
His apartment is big and confortable, and it's in the center of Paris, quite and near lot of shops. I will come next time, and I recommend it to others.
We had 6 great days in Paris. My wife, my daughter, my brother and his daughters loved the apartment. It is very well located, very well decorated, with style and good taste. Everything was working properly.
Terrific stay in this apartment. Have visited Paris many times, but this was first stay in the Marais which lived up to its reputation as a good area. Great restaurants (Alex has excellent list of his recommendations) and shops/markets if you want to have breakfast or cook in well equipped kitchen. All modern amentities you could want (including separate clothes dryer, Nespresso coffeemaker & strong WIFI).
If you've ever stayed in a typical European hotel or apartment, you'll appreciate the size of the rooms. We were a family of four - my husband, 22 & 19 y/o daughters & myself.
Location is central enough that you may walk to almost anywhere, but there are multiple metro/bus stops nearby that make traveling in & outside Paris very easy.
Alex is a terrific host. Easy to contact, provided easy-to-understand instructions for apartment equipment, and, again, a good list of recommendations. Would definitely return to this apartment and highly recommend it. Merci, Alex!
Our family of 5 (mom, dad, grandma, 2 kids) spent 4 nights at Alexandre's apartment over New Year's, and we loved every minute of it. The location is perfect - a 5-10 minute walk to 3 different metro lines, plus you can walk to Notre Dame, Pompidou Center, and around the beautiful Marais. The apartment has everything that you could possibly need that we did not find in most other options, including 2 separate toilets, a wonderful modern shower plus another bath tub, a washer AND dryer, a dishwasher, wifi, a hairdryer, only 1 flight of stairs (plus an elevator), a telephone, a Nespresso machine, plenty of towels, dishes, kitchen appliances, and a very quiet neighborhood! It is quite a spacious apartment with a ton of privacy between bedrooms, but the place felt quite warm and cozy, even in winter. The apartment was also very clean and well stocked with toilet paper, laundry soap, bath soap, etc...seriously, everything that we could possibly need! Alexandre was the perfect host. He was so responsive on email whenever we had any questions, and although he was out of town when we arrived, his friend let us into the apartment and explained everything to us. We felt like he was instantly our friend too. We would recommend this apartment to anyone and hope to have the chance to stay there again in the future. Merci beaucoup, Alexandre!
Alexandre's apartment had a great Parisien feel with bigger rooms and more spacious than many Other apartments I suspect. It had high ceilings and big rooms, large windows and timber floors. The bedrooms are well apart and give a family a sense of space and some privacy. It was a warm apartment to come "home" to each day. We stayed for a week over Christmas with two older teenagers and a 10-year old. The fifth bed was a lounge in the lounge which was fine for a teenager; great for five but even better for four. The bathrooms were good with a good full shower in one. Alexandre was a welcoming and gracious host and fixed a problem that arose with speed and concern. Highly recommend Alexandre's apartment for a well located Parisien week.
Amazing place and amazing host in an amazing location! I travelled with my mum and sis plus family with 3 little kids and this was perfect for all of us. Really recommend Alex beautiful apartment to anyone wanting to live the real essence of Parisian marais decadency.
Loved this place! The location was perfect and the apartment was amazing! Loved the floor to ceiling bookshelves!
Alexandre was a great host, very easy to contact and very helpful with suggestions on what to do and where to eat.
We had issues with heating in one room and he was very prompt in trying to fix it.
Would highly recommend this apartment. Thanks for letting us stay.
I've stayed at Alexandre's flat in the Marais several times and you can't ask for a nicer apartment in a great location! The apartment is full of modern amenities like new bathrooms and a dishwasher, while retaining an elegant Parisian charm with its vaulted ceilings and original hardwood floors. The flat is in a great neighborhood full of cute boutiques, restaurants, and cafes and you can easily walk to some of the main sites of Paris. Any night you can get is a steal for the price.
