I bought the apartment for myself in 1977 when I fell in love with the apartment and the area. I am not over it yet.

I love Paris and love to share my city with my guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sejour mémorable pour notre lune de miel!"

En octobre dernier, nous avons passé notre lune de miel sur une croisière sur la méditerranée et nous avons décidé d'ajouter quelques jours à Paris au passage. Et c'était tellement une bonne idée!! Non seulement nous avons découvert 2 merveilleuses personnes Marie et Pascal, mais nous avons également visité la Ville lumière sous un angle qu'aucune compagnie de tours organisés n'aurait pu nous offrir.



Nous n'avions pas beaucoup de temps, mais Marie a su adapter les escapades selon nos goûts et selon le temps disponible. L'aide à l'aéroport et avec les valises a été très appréciée. L'appartement est très bien situé et près de tout. Il est donc très facile de s'y promener.



Toutes les petites attentions portées par Marie et Pascal font en sorte qu'on a envie d'y retourner chaque année! Si vous planifiez un séjour à Paris, vous devez absolument réserver Haussmann!

Paris dream come true

  • 5 of 5
When your hosts are there to greet you at the train station on arrival to Paris, you know you've found something special. Marie and Pascal make it a point to meet all the renters of their lovely apartment either at the train station or the airport. This ensures that you find your way safely and efficiently and also gives you a first introduction to Paris, your hosts, and your new temporary home and neighborhood. They go an extra step to provide you with a cell phone for us throughout the visit. Whether to coordinate meeting Marie after Pascal picks you up at the airport or simply to touch base with questions during the stay, the cell is yours to use as needed.

We were fortunate to have a wonderful week in the studio apartment fulfilling our goal of spending a short time living as Parisians. While the apartment is small, it feels roomy because of the carefully planned layout and the use of mirrors. Marie has thought of everything and when a need arose (extra trash sacks, grocery bags, etc), we simply looked around confident that Marie had it there. We were never disappointed. WiFi, cable TV, electrical adapters, robes, all included. The ability to wash clothes and a dishwasher available, plus a phone with free calling to the the US were among the many thoughtful amenities. As Marie described, she wants her guest to experience the conveniences that she herself enjoys when she travels. She was 100% successful.

The bathroom included the luxury of towel warmers. The shower had great pressure and warm water always available. There is ample closet space and hangers. The kitchen lacked for nothing and all appliances worked perfectly. We loved the two balconies even during our January visit that allowed us morning and evening views of the boulevard.

We love the 8th Arrondissement neighborhood near Gare St Lazare. It is elegant, safe, and very convenient to shopping including the grand magasins. We found Marie's Practical Tour to be a wonderful introduction to the area and Paris.

We could not have been happier with our week. Coming home in the evenings to the stately door on Haussmann, entering the carriage way, the marble foyer, the elegant elevator, and then living in the comfortable and perfectly planned apartment all contributed to achieving our dream visit. We are confident that any and all who rent this apartment will enjoy the amenities and the extraordinary care provided by Marie and Pascal. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Loved everything about it

  • 5 of 5
All of the other reviews cover the many wonderful things about the location, amenities and hospitality of the owners of this lovely apartment so I won't repeat them. Yes, it is very small. If you sleep on the left side of the bed you step into the bathroom when you get up but is that necessarily a bad thing? :-) Other than that it is perfect! It's clean, bright, well stocked, perfectly located and in an extremely secure building. Marie and Pascal go out of their way to make you feel welcome and can provide the true Parisian experience for you. Take advantage of all they have to offer. They can show you the parts of Paris that most tourists miss. My travel companion had a family emergency and couldn't join me on this trip. I only wish I had someone with me to share such a wonderful experience. Thank goodness for Marie!! She was such a delight to spend time with and I feel I've made a friend for life. I hope to return and bring someone with me to experience this great place and these wonderful people.

November Sparkles in this perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5
After spending countless hours searching rentals in Paris, Marie and Pascal's apartment stood out among the rest. Our expectations were definitely met with our stay in this efficient apartment in a beautiful building. Every square centimeter is put to excellent use in this apartment, which had everything we needed. I especially enjoyed the many fluffy towels and the bath robes-what a treat! Marie ensured everything was stocked so we could start our visit without having to immediately worry about buying shampoo, soap, or other basic necessities. The apartment was spotless. Having a non-smoking apartment is very important to us and we appreciated that there was no indication the apartment had ever been smoked in.

As everyone notes, the hospitality of Marie and Pascal is incredible. It may seem like a small thing- but being greeted at the airport is a fabulous perk. Marie then escorted us from the bus stop to the apartment, where she thoroughly oriented us to all the appliances and features. One thing I am embarrassed to admit I did not know- when looking at the shower, the left handle turns on the water pressure, and the right handle adjusts the temperature. The shower has excellent pressure and the water temperature was adjustable to nice and hot.

We did not need the heat while we were there (though there is a heating unit with in room controls). We opened and closed the windows as needed to adjust the temperature of the apartment. Although on a busy street (with great views as pictured), the high quality windows when closed kept out the noise well.

It is very easy to navigate around Paris from the apartment. Whether you prefer to walk, travel by bus, or use metro- you can get everywhere easily. All of Paris felt very safe to us, but the apartment itself was extremely safe with an entrance code to the building and an additional locked door before the apartment.

The Monoprix across the street was very handy for picking up nearly anything needed at a good price. The market street Marie provided directions to at Rue de Levis was excellent. We picked up an incredible ham and gruyere sandwich there, which we enjoyed later in the day on one occasion.

I am happy to be contacted by email (just ask Marie for my address) if anyone has any questions about the experience of being a guest in this lovely apartment.

Great Location - Terrific Hostess

Located near all major attractions and / or buses and Metro locations can't be beat. Engage Marie in one of her guided tours to really get the most out of your Paris stay. She knows everything and can help you save a lot of money getting to attractions etc. We had a great time!!!

Great location, Wonderful apartment, Superb hosts.

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Paris. We have stayed at Marie and Pascal's both times. On our first visit we stayed there for three weeks and were so pleased we chose it again. The apartment is as described and has everything you could possibly need or want. The apartment is clean, very bright and we enjoyed using our deck. The location is perfect for walking everywhere in Paris, in addition it is well located for transportation, metro, RR and bus. Market is close and has all the staples one might need. This review would not be complete if we did not comment on the WONDERFUL hospitality of Marie and Pascal. Even though we had been there before Pascal welcomed us at the airport, and they escorted us to our rendezvous point in the city for the next part of our vacation. They welcome any questions, and are available if needed for anything. They love Paris and do anything they can to ensure that you have the information, support, maps etc to do the same. We will be back and stay again! Thank you Marie and Pascal.

Excellent, excellent and excellent. Our experience at 85 Haussmann, Paris. Marie and Pascal were the best, to good to be true.
Before we left Marie called us at home and was extremely helpful in making us feel at ease about the trip. She e-mailed us a picture of Pascal so we knew who would be meeting us at the airport.
Pascal met us at the airport and went with us on the bus to the apartment where Marie was waiting for us.
The apartment is clean and very well arranged. It is centrally located on the right bank-close to everything. It has a washer/dryer and a dishwasher, and oven and two stove top burners.
I has very thing you need and two balconies and an elevator. The grocery store is right across the street. The metro and bus stops are also right out the door. Marie provides an international phone to call the USA or Canada at no cost, and she also provides a cell phone to reach her or Pascal when you need advise or are not sure where to go.
The apartment is great. The location is great, and Marie's tours are a must. The only way to see Paris-a personal guide was wonderful. There is no need to book any other tours, hers are comprehensive, informative and lots of fun. We did five of her tours and they were terrific.
This is the place to stay in Paris.
