Marc lives in a very residential area, close to the Congress Centre with its concert hall, exhibitions, shops and restaurants. The Arc of Tiumph and the Champs-Elysées are only a few minutes' walk from there. Very close, you will also find the Ternes Square with luxury fashion shops and two open-air markets. Public transportation (buses, subways, RER) are very close and will allow you to go everywhere in Paris fast and easily.
Built in 1870 the building was first a convent for bretons nurses, before being transformed into apartments in 1950-60. The cloister has been transformed into six individual gardens. Marc bought two of these gardens to create one larger one of approximately160 square meters.
You can have complete access to the garden and stay there as much as you want. At the back of the garden, he had the creole house built always available to you.
Marc's apartment is very quiet. It is composed of two parts Marc's private part, and the apartment which is for the guests. In order to join these two parts, there is on one side a large garden and on the other side a private entry that give access to the two entry doors.
More than a simple guest room, but a complete apartment of 34m2 with a large bedroom of 20 square meters, a bathroom and a kitchen, including breakfast. Your host will be there at any time and available to answer your questions.
Marc will welcome you and explain all the specificities of the apartment. He will give you information on the area and will give you the keys of the apartment.
He will be at your disposal during your entire stay if you have any questions and he will serve breakfasts daily.
There are cabinets for your personal belongings, a chest of drawers and a Voltaire armchair.
The additional bed for one person is hidden in a special cupboard.
Unusually there is an authentic wooden horse in the bedroom which comes from a merry-go-round of the end of the 19th Century, and an ivory statue.
You will have a large flat screen television in the bedroom, integrated in the furniture along the wall facing the bed. There is also a fan in the bedroom.
Everything has been carefully prepared and organised by Marc, in particular the screen made of wrought iron to separate the kitchen from the bedroom, so that the whole space remains functional but keeps at the same time all its charm.
The kitchen is well equipped with hot plates, a refrigerator, an oven, a Nespresso coffee machine with caps, a luxury kettle, which can be used to boil eggs (with an integrated hourglass to check the cooking), a toaster with a grill pan to warm croissants.
Your bathroom is private and large enough. It offers a bath with a shower on the wall, a sink and a dressing table with two mirrors.
Dressing gowns, bath towels, bath products as well as a hair dryer will be at your disposal. You will also have slippers.
The toilet is private and outside the bathroom. Its decoration is amazing. You cannot miss the ‘paper tree’ made by Marc, as well as all his tools harmoniously hanged on the wall.
Your bedroom opens its French window sover a private terrace and Marc's garden.
This terrace is equipped with table and chairs and can allow you to benefit from the garden without going to the creole house.
According to your wishes and to the weather, Marc can serve breakfast in your apartment or in the creole house in the garden.
Breakfast is generous and typically French with coffee, tea, milk, orange juice, butter, jams, yogurt, cereals, dry fruits and season fruits and, of course, fresh baguette and croissants.
If you are gluten-allergic, Marc can replace the traditional croissants by croissants made of maize without gluten, and special bread.
Upon request, an iron and ironing table will be put at your disposal.
Marc's apartment is Wifi equipped. With your laptop, you can get connected to Internet.
