Jogging and running itineraries : Thanks to my children, I can share some nice itineraries around the apartment


Swimming pool: you have a large Public swimming pool 5- minute walk from the apartment in les Halles


Gyms: I can share a list from posh to cheap and you could buy a pass for 1 or more sessions


Yoga classes : from New York Style to affordable ones


Massages : Body Valérie Marcou with in-home service and  Facial : Kobido


After working 15 years for the fashion business, in 2004 Valérie switches to become manager of one of the few Paris Pilates centers ( I, martinn, attended on rue de Richelieu) being in contact with professionals of the well-being world.

Seeing the benefits of massaging on her own life and health, Valérie, decided in 2005 to attend the School of Frédéric Bonfils at Institut Figari ( creative massaging). : muscles and mind relaxation., mix of Sweddish method, Californian massage and Shiatsu.

Valérie spent one year in New York with private clients, then came back to Paris in 2008.

She is now working for different Institutes, spas, well being centers and private clients.

We are lucky to have her at a stone throw of rue d’Argout so Valérie will come and massage you at home.

1hour session 110 €

90mn 150 €

I am just here, recommending a great address. No commission. You make appointment and pay Valérie directly.

Pamper yourself, get relaxed in Paris : Contact Valérie at before you arrive at key2paris. to make your appointment with her or upon arrival after you have established your agenda.
