Parismarais® apartments : enjoy the best of historic Paris
All our paris apartments are run by a network of friends who live in the same historical neighborhood of Paris called Le Marais. They are independent, private owners.
All of them have travelled extensively or lived abroad. They have experienced different cultures, different lifestyles. They all speak French, English, and at least another language. They are curious, open to the world, like making new friends. And will welcome you like friends.

FAQ about Renting:
Why do we need to give a deposit ?
Would you give the key to your own property without a minimum guarantee to get it back in good condition? We consider that trusting our guests for their honesty is the best way to have them respect us and our properties. That is why we only ask you for a small deposit equivalent to one or two week's rental. This is little compared with the value of the flat's contents & In our recent rental experience we have always had very well behaved guests and
have never needed to cash the deposit...
What to do when we arrive at the airport?
Do not take the RER Train or airport bus if you have lots of luggage. Do not buy your train ticket from anyone other than at the official counter of the Métro with an RATP sign, which is the Métro company. If you take the bus, you can buy a ticket form the driver. If you have several pieces of luggage you're better off taking an official cab with a Taxi sign on its roof- avoid the private limos that will overcharge you. A regular cab will cost you around
50 Euros from Roissy Charles de Gaulle, 35 Euros from Orly.
How do we meet to get the keys and do the check in?
The owner of your flat or one of us will welcome you personally. Normal check-in time is 14.00 (2pm). It can be earlier if your flat is available. For late arrivals, we kindly ask you to do your best to arrive before 22.00 (10pm) in order to respect the privacy of your
neighbors. Once your booking is confirmed, you'll be given an appointment to rendezvous at your flat. Please do your best to be on time as there is no reception desk, we meet you at the flat. If your plane or train is late, please call us to fix another time to hand over the keys and welcome you.
What about checking out?
We are very flexible about check-out times. If you have a late departure and your flat is not required, we allow you to stay in the flat later than the normal noon check-out time. We'll meet you personally on departure, check out your phone bill and the condition of the flat. If everything is fine and clean, as it usually is, we'll give you your deposit check back with a warm thank you. We can also, with advanced request, arrange for a reliable taxi company to pick you up at your door and take you to the airport or train station.
