Property description

This beautifully renovated Marais apartment is perfectly located in the 3rd arrondissement, just three blocks from both the Place des Vosges and the Picasso Museum, Apartment Tournelles1 is in a lovely and well maintained XIX century building. Everything in this apartment has been updated, from the plumbing and electrical to the tasteful furnishings and decor.

Unusual to Paris, Apartment Tournelles1 features two equally well-appointed bedrooms, each with comfortable queen-sized beds and en suite modern bathrooms! The well-thought out layout of Apartment Tournelles1 maximizes the living spaces and, for privacy creates excellent separation between the bedrooms (see the layout photo below). The American owners have decorated Tournelles1 with the perfect combination of style and comfort, and equipped it with many thoughtful touches, including good reading lights, a laptop computer, hair dryers in both bathrooms, etc. Read what prior renters have said about our apartment!

Apartment features: In addition to the 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, Apartment Tournelles1 features a separate tiled kitchen with modern appliances, and a light and airy living/dining room. While the many neighborhood restaurants and wine bars will beckon, the well-furnished kitchen also invites you to bring provisions home from the nearby open-air markets and wonderful food stores.

Unwind on the comfortable leather couch in the living/dining room after a day of exploring the Marais and surrounding neighborhoods. High ceilings, tall windows, original moldings and wood floors, a black crystal chandelier, stylish furnishings, and a quiet street below--this wonderful vacation retreat has all the ambiance of old Paris combined with the best modern comforts and conveniences.

Some of the amenities: The apartment is on the first floor French (second floor American), easily accessible by a wide and gently curved staircase. It of course comes with every amenity---flat screen TV with cable, DVD, phone with free calling to 28 countries, washer/dryer, free WIFI, heated towel racks, etc. We've also equipped it with a laptop computer so you don't have to lug yours along.

In addition, the apartment comes with its own off-site manager, a wonderful and knowledgeable Parisian fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian. In addition to making sure Apartment Tournelles1 is ready for your arrival with fresh flowers, coffee, a bottle of wine, water, milk and other staples, our Parisian host can assist you with any questions about the apartment or general information about Paris. We (the owners) come at least twice a year to make sure the apartment stays in tip-top shape.

The Neighborhood: Le Marais: Tournelles1, and its adjacent sister apartment Tournelles2, are in the midst of the Marais, one of Paris's most historic, most beautiful, and most desirable neighborhoods. From French history to French chic, the Marais has it all. To help you get acquainted, Apartment Tournelles1 is equipped with numerous guidebooks and maps, as well as information on our favorite places to shop, eat, and sight see in the neighborhood. Also, we provide a complete binder, with directions on how to use all of the appliances, lots of neighborhood resources, and general Paris information.

While it is easy to spend all your time in the Marais, many other Paris attractions, including the Louvre, the Seine, Notre Dame, and the Left Bank are in easy walking distance of Apartment Tournelles1. And, when you're ready to get off your feet, several Metro stops are conveniently nearby (Chemin Vert is less than a block away, and Bastille is less than a five minute walk).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Two San Francisco families own this beautiful apartment and its adjacent 'sister' and we manage it ourselves with the help in Paris of a close friend. We traveled to Paris in the winter of 2006 to research buying property, and came home 10 days later as Paris apartment owners. Our dream is to live in Paris, and having these apartments get us one step closer to that. We renovated, decorated, and equipped these apartments based on our prior experiences with vacation rentals in the US and Europe, and hope that you will enjoy all of the amenities and small touches that we have provided. We travel to Paris as often as we can to make sure the apartments stay in top shape. Our goal is to give you a wonderful place to stay, and have you love Paris as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 3:
We love the Marais...it is central to everything, yet retains a neighborhood feel. We love walking out the door and being steps away from fabulous bakeries, restaurants, museums, and great shopping. Paris is a great walking city, and our apartment provides easy access to so much of it. We also love the location because the Paris Metro (subway system) is so close and so easy to use. We also love the Marais because of its history and diversity...from the elegant Place des Vosges to rue des Rosiers' Jewish delis to rue des Archives' gay friendly bars and stores---everyone can feel at home in the Marais.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Some of our favorite things to do revolve around cooking and eating! We love being just across the street from the twice-weekly Bastille farmers market, and within easy walking distance to two other historic markets on rue des Bretagnes and at Place d'Aligre. And we can never stay at our place and not stop for a meal at Chez Janou, a block away, making sure we save room for their incredible bowl of chocolate mousse! We also love that a short walk takes us to and across the Seine, to Notre Dame and the Left Bank, and never get tired of window shopping along rue des Francs Bourgeois' chic boutiques,or walking under Place des Vosges' magnificent arches. Since we bought the apartments, the 'upper' Marais has also evolved, and now has its own chic boutiques, restaurants, and bakeries. We are fortunate to be in the middle of all the best Paris has to offer, while retaining its neighborhood feel. Our other favorite past time is exploring Paris' various neighborhoods or arrondisements. The fact that we're so close to the 2nd, 4th, 10th, 11th, and 12th facilitates our 'expeditions.' As in our home city, San Francisco, it is the neighborhoods away from the tourist areas that give one a great perspective on the city and its people---and, just like San Francisco, the best food at the best prices are found in the neighborhoods!
