The
Experience

A gem of a pied-à-terre for two, right in the middle of old Paris. Step through the secluded cobbled courtyard to this ground-floor flat; the door opens into the small, uncluttered bedroom with a book-filled living room beyond. Find a joyful yellow bedcover matching a copy of Monet’s ‘La rue Montorgueil’, a snazzy bathroom and a corner kitchen for preparing your own meals after Martinn’s welcoming breakfast; all is beautifully decorated. The neighbourhood teems with busy brasseries, pavement cafés, fashionable shops; easy stroll to Pompidou centre, Louvre, the Marais. Martinn is charming, and eager to share Paris with you.

Reviews

Thank you Martinn, you are a wonderful hostess. Everything was wonderful, what a gem of a place. I am so pleased that my brother and wife recommended you to us - like a gift which has been passed on ! *****

Jean, Kleinmond - cape town

A little haven in Paris It was our first visit to Paris, the City of Lights. Fantastic! Martinn greeted us with a smile, plenty of good advice and a welcome breakfast. She took us under her wing and made sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is cozy and has all the amenities, plus a lovely private garden that makes you forget you are in lively District 2, in walking distance to major tourist attractions. The B&B is, however, a world away from the hustle and bustle of a busy city; everything becomes quiet. A true Parisian experience, one you should not miss. Linda & Philip

I can't say enough good things about the apartment and Martinn as a hostess. The apartment is a nice size with everything provided - a well-equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer and amazing hospitality from Martinn. She made dinner reservations, arranged a taxi to the airport and checked in to make sure everything was good with my visit. I will definitely be back!

Kim, Houston

I have stayed twice at the key2Paris. Once in 2015 for 2 weeks & in 4/2019 For 10 days. I love the location, as you Can walk to most of the museum.Great Connection for Metro & buses. Apartment has all the amenities you Need for a comfortable stay. Nice comfortable bed, great shower, Washing machine with dryer & A brand new Dishwasher she installed During my stay as old one broke down. She has all the cooking utensils +she Leaves a great home made Breakfast For the guest.We also enjoyed Martinn ‘s Hospitality when she invited us for dinner for Easter. Martinn is easy to communicate.

I would like to echo Dee's comments about Martinn - one could not ask for a more thoughtful, organized, and helpful host. She is an outstanding ambassador for Paris & is absolutely amazing at what she does. The very generous breakfast was delicious; the apartment is in a fantastic location & is very cozy & warmly furnished. The bed was incredibly comfortable & the bathroom thoughfully laid out. The kitchen has absolutely everything one could possibly need - you will not want for anything if you stay here & will be given recommendations for everything you can think of.Very highly recommended!

Amber & andrew, Shawnigan lake, canada

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming flat, Marais district and Martinn’s warm welcome to the neighbourhood. We loved the well appointed kitchen, the queen sized bed, appliances, and lovely breakfast that Martinn prepared to welcome us. Rue Montegeuill, with its patisseries and fromageri, is a real gem. Key2Paris was an oasis to return to each night without throngs of tourists. Martinn has curated an immensely enjoyable experience; she is a warm and passionate lady who took time to check in and assist and generously share her knowledge of her city and local gastronomy. Recommended!

Connie, Edmonton

We can only reiterate what other discerning guests have said about Martinn and staying at wonderful rue d'Argout. We cannot speak highly enough of Martinn's graciousness, generosity, attention to detail, and genuine desire to ensure that her guests get the absolute most out of their stay in Paris. Since the moment of the first inquiry, Martinn was a treasure to deal with and from that initial exchange a friendship grew that far surpasses a regular host/guest experience. We heartily recommend staying at Key2Paris and experiencing Martinn's heartfelt hospitality and authentic neighbourhood.

Dee, Burra

We have stayed in Paris three previous times, and this is be far the best place ever!! Spotlessly clean, perfect location, quiet, convenient to everything and best of all, Martinn (the owner) is the most wonderful host ever!! She is very professional, kind, helpful, full of information, as she has lived in this area most of her life, and always available if you need her. She is also an excellent, gourmet cook, so I highly recommend purchasing her dinner option!! A real treasure, indeed!!

Dan, Wetumpka

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Our host was fantastic and showed us all the best places to go, answered questions and was very warm and welcoming. The apartment is in a fantastic section of Paris - all of the main attractions are walking distance, but the apartment itself is on a section of streets closed off to traffic and is full of wonderful shops and cafes. There is a mix of natives and tourists in the area and provides a true Paris experience. It was so convenient to just walk out of our door and see where our feet led us that we never had dinner more than a half mile from the apartm

Stephanie, Honeoye falls, ny

Absolutely the perfect Paris location, a nice neighborhood with lots of shops and cafes, but just a few blocks away from the Louvre area. At the back of the building's courtyard, this sweet little hideaway for 2 is so quiet & calm in the midst of the city. The kitchen is very well equipped, and comes with start up breakfast. Martinn is a treasure; a native Parisian who can help plan special interest tours with lots of "insider" information. Martinn has many years of experience in hosting travelers, her genuine warmth & interest in her customers is a real treat. We can't wait to go back!

Meroe & bob, Wilmington, north carolina, usa

Location, location, location. Couldn't ask for a better location. Quiet at night, yet within walking distance of much of central Paris, several Metro stations and Ile de Cite.

Brenda, Melbourne

We had a wonderful stay at Martinn's the apartment was fully self contained, clean & a fabulous central location for attractions & transport. Martinn is a wonderful host & very obliging with information & idea's for your visit & if you have the time enjoy a meal with her she is a fabulous chef.

Glenda, Melbourne

Had a great time, apartment is beautiful. Awesome location, so close to everything. Highl recommended.

Fiona, Melbourne

absolutely THE perfect location for a visit to Paris. Steps from the charming pedestrian shopping street of Montorgueil. Minutes walk to the Louvre. The apartment is quiet, cool and private. Exactly as described in the listing. The hostess Martinn, charming, helpful, an excellent cook and immediately responds to any and all requests and questions, she is also fluent in English. Having stayed several times we have absolutely no hesitancy in recommending the apartment.

Peter, Vancouver

My husband & I stayed there for a little over 2 weeks. We could not have been happier with location, facility & host! Instructions on location, transportation, neighborhoods, accouterments, sightseeing... I could go on and on, Martinn had everything under control. Because we were there for a nice long stay it was a relaxing stay as we did not feel rushed with our sightseeing. Martinn goes out of her way to help with your needs, but also makes sure that you have your privacy. I will have pleasant memories of this trip for a long, long time!

Judith, Tucson, az

What a wonderful experience! We visited our daughter studying abroad in Paris and had a fantastic week staying in Martinn's rue D'Argout apartment. We had researched to walk or take the metro to museums, restaurants and the Seine, and we were able to do that and more. You are within easy walking distance of great restaurants and cafes, and if you would like to cook in, there are grocery stores and markets to purchase fruits, cheese, breads, and anything else you would need. Martinn was always ready to help (we lost luggage) - she is your guide to Paris. We can't wait to go back.

Rex

A wonderful quiet and secluded flat in the heart of Paris, a stones throw from buzzing restaurants, the Louvre and an amazing array of specialty shops. Martine is the perfect host and expert guide - follow her advice to the cultural and foodie wonders of Paris!

Jem

Wonderful base from which to explore Paris. Very comfortable, peaceful and secluded but within walking distance of many of the sights of Paris.A vibrant cafe and shopping street nearby. Martine was a welcoming and excellent host and expert guide.

Roslyn

A delightful host welcomed us to her apartment, and helped us to find great nearby cookware stores, restaurants and cafes, and our way around Paris. Her kitchen is the best equipped we have seen in three countries, and supplemented with great books, maps, and quiet nights for sleeping. Rue Mortorgueil is one block away and full of cafes and food shops of all kinds.

Edmund

Martines apartment was an incredible find. It was in an oasis of calm,the courtyard was cobbled with lots of well looked after potted planting. The apartment was clean and very welcoming with good furniture and a really comfotable bed lots of quirky interesting lighting and best of all in a very cold mid January warm. We were spoilt for restaurants the choice on the apartments doorstep was amazeing. Plus the boulangerie to die for..We walked to most museums etc. a thirty minute walk got you to most places plus you saw bits of Paris you'd never see on the Metro !

Local points of interest from Martinn Jablonski-Cahours

  • Welcoming homemade organic breakfast is part of the booking. You can also book a tour or a dinner at our “Table d’Hôtes”. It will allow time to discuss Paris and French culture and add a great deal to your Paris experience!
  • She'll be happy to share with you her passion and her knowledge of Paris, its history, its architecture, and its food, as well as details about French and Parisian culture and tell you about exhibitions and special events.
  • Your host has been a pharmacist on rue Montorgueil years ago but now prefers cooking , baking "crème brûlée" rather than "cold cream" . She is what people call " a foodie".
  • The oldest Pastry shop in Paris ( and a good one with exceptional decor)A Medieval tower at 3mn-walk( Jean Sans Peur), XVII and XVIIIth centuries streets, great Art Nouveau and Art Deco buildings, Gourmet streets , walking distance from Louvre, Beaubourg..
  • Many guides, photos albums about the area along the centuries, Museum exhibition booklets at your disposal
  • Former wholesale food district "Les Halles" Still many gourmet activities and shops.
