“an unforgettable 35th anniversary”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A very gracious hostess welcomed us to her peaceful apartment, and helped us to explore Paris. The superbly equipped kitchen was supplemented with great books about Paris, restaurant reviews, and maps. We found we could walk to all of the great museums, Notre Dame, the boat ride on the Seine that leaves from Pont Neuf, the Tuilleries garden (at night you can look up at the well lit Eiffel Tower), a Fragonard perfume museum, the finest department stores, wonderful cooking stores on the bottom of Rue Montmartre, and outdoor markets. One block away is Rue Montorgueil, full of food shops, restaurants, and cafes. The lovely old passages are very much worth exploring with your camera, just ask the wonderful host Martinne where they are. The nearby Sentier metro stop will take you to the Per Lachaise Cemetery, a place you can easily spend two hours walking through.

“Cozy apartment perfectly located with the best host in Paris”

After visiting Paris multiple times as foreign students and then again while stationed in Germany, we decided to spend a week in the city of lights for our 25th anniversary. The small but charming apartment is perfectly located to cover most of Paris by foot. The local neighborhood is very inviting and filled with many wonderful placed to eat and buy delicacies.
However the best part of staying there is Martine. She is very funny, interesting, and welcoming. Her recommendations on food and places of interest were invaluable. She helped us rediscover Paris all over again but with an insider's view.

Dearest Carlyn and Mark, thank you for such a nice review.
I am happy to read that my help was "helpful" and my inputs valuable and that you found me funny :-).
Now you have been exceptional guests, should I say friends now ?
I know you have a very busy life so taking time to write this is already a gift for me.
Enjoy fishing, river trips and tomato season. in pies, salads, sauces, patés ... or "hats".
Hope that life will put us together again in a not too distant future.
Amicalement,
Martine

“Paris 2 Me”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

I enjoyed my stay in this cozy apartment very much - stayed in 2 other places in Paris and this was by far my favourite. The combination of an old building with modern finishing was a delight. Every morning when I opened the windows, I felt the history of many hands doing the same thing over the centuries. Yet the very updated, complete kitchen and great bathroom, complete with laundry, made it feel like home. My knees appreciated that the apartment was on the ground floor and with the secure entry it felt completely safe. The location of the property is very good - near to buses, metro, restaurants, shopping, and not far from the river and all its sights. Martine is very organized and this provides security and clarity which is helpful for a tourist. She also provides help and almost any service you could wish - directions, suggestions, personalized plans and follow up, prompt email contact, and friendly recommendations and tidbits. I took a gourmet tour of the area with her and enjoyed all the specialty places and interesting sights she knew. I could set the pace and liked the feeling of exploring without having to use a map or get lost! When I think of Paris I will always think of the experience of staying in Montorgeuil.

Dear Chris, thank you very much for this wonderful review. It has been a pleasure to meet you, to stroll the streets in the Montorgueil-Halles area with you on a gentle pace, to share lunch at the Hedoniste.

I was happy to be able to help you, was happy when Nadal you favorite tennis player won in Roland Garros (you came for him didn't you ?).

Roland Garros is held every year so I hope to see you again even if Nadal is not part of it ... :-)

For the time being I wish you a nice Summer and to find your new career.

Friendly regards,

Martine

“Fabulous warm and cosy apartment in very pleasant central location.”
Reviewed 28 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

What a gem. Fabulous ground floor apartment, very clean and cosy. Secure environment tucked away in quiet side street. As a female solo traveller felt very safe in the area. Great central location, few minutes walk to metro, Etienne Marcel, direct line from Gare du Nord. Good local shops, restaurants. Martine is an absolute treasure, so helpful, and a joy to meet. Recommend without hesitation.

Dear Elaine and Mike,
thank you for this very kind and positive comment.
I am proud of your trust, asking me to participate to Elaine's birthday and your visit to Paris which does not happen that often, although you live in the South West of France.
I am happy you enjoyed the apartment, the area, the food- as you can enjoy very nice one where you live -, the Louvre and Montmartre.
I'll be happy to welcome you again whenever you celebrate or meet your daughter coming from London.
Kind regards
Martine
