Paris Arrondissement 4 apartment description

Charming, spacious, sunny, completely renovated, nicely furnished, 120 m2 (1300 square feet; which is one of the largest you will find in Paris for short term rental), duplex apartment with panoramic views of the historic Le Marais District. Perfect for a couple with friends or small family.

(Apartment previously lived in by American owner who understands American standards of comfort: i.e. individual gas heating, lots of hot water and closet space !) The apartment is tastefully decorated with a mix of contemporary and antique furniture and modern art and photographs.

The apartment is on the 5th. floor without an elevator. ( Up 1 floor to the mezzanine, down a hallway and then up 4 short flights ). Not a difficult climb if you are in decent shape but can be a problem for babies, the elderly or people with mobility problems.

The apartment manager will greet you upon arrival and help you carry your bags up the stairs and, if necessary, back down again at departure.(SEE COMMENTS IN GUESTBOOK BELOW, that is probably the best recommendation you can get !)

In the heart of the REAL Marais

On a quiet street (rue des Hospitalières-St. Gervais) tucked between the rue des Rosiers (historic Jewish quarter) and the lively rue Vieille du Temple (great shopping and restaurants abound). 3 street markets open daily and 2 weekly open air fresh food markets which are within walking distance of the apartment make cooking a joy! Centrally-situated.

Only a 5 minute walk either South to the historic Ile St. Louis, North to the Picasso Museum, West to Beaubourg/Les Halles or East to the beautiful, historic Place des Vosges. Very conveniently located as it is on the No. 1 métro line which crosses most of Paris in 15 minutes. 10 minute walk to the RER train which goes to Versailles and CDG airport. Most of historic Paris is within a 20 minute radius on foot.

Apartment boasts a spacious, elegant double living room/dining room which seats five with lovely turn of the century marble fireplace and wooden floors. Rooms are drowned in light by 6 large double French windows which open to a wrap-around balcony with rooftop views of 17th and 18th century 'hotels particuliers' (formerly 'private mansions', also origin of word 'hotel') and the fashionable and trendy rue des Francs Bourgeois.

Audiophile Denon stereo system (CD, K7, Radio, turntable) and Cable TV/VCR (with CNN, BBC and 10 movie channnels (many films in English). Double pullout couch in dining room comfortably accomodates 2 guests, if needed. Marble guest toilet in entry with an adjacent cloakroom (with extra single foldout cot inside). Portable foldup baby crib is also available. Many guides and maps of Paris and France available for you to use.

Large, American-style designer granite kitchen for people who like to cook/entertain. Fully-equipped with gas stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, mixer, dicer, toaster, coffee maker, water boiler and lots of pots and pans for cooking and granite breakfast table which seats six.

Master bedroom suite with queen-size bed (160 cm), corner desk, armchair and large walk-in dressing room with concealed safety deposit box and lots of closet space. Adjacent Carrera marble bathroom with large circular shower, separate large bathtub, double marble sinks, and separate toilet.

A staircase takes you to a guest room/office with double bed (130 cm.) and view of Beaubourg and monuments of historic Paris. Room has a small shower room with sink and a large desk with high speed Internet link connected to Dell PC, no need to bring your laptop. (Staircase not appropriate for small children.)
