Paris Arrondissement 2 apartment description

On the edge of the Marais and just next to rue Montorgueil, this spacious apartment is tucked back into the courtyard of a quiet building on a tranquil street in the 2nd Arrondissement. The flat is on the 2nd floor of the courtyard building on Rue Greneta. The result of this is a virtually silent space, free from the street noise of surrounding Paris. This 60 square metre flat is organized to have 2 separate sleeping areas, making it a 2 bedroom flat.

Upon entering, the guest enters into an entry lounge, containing two single beds and a wall of cupboards for storing clothing and luggage. This first room is separated from the double living area by a large sliding door - when open, the spaces are joined to make a large, sunny, loft-like space, and when closed, the entry becomes a quiet separate room for reading or sleeping. We can provide a third single fold out bed here too.

The double living and dining area runs the length of the apartment and is illuminated by a wall of windows on one side. The first lounge area is furnished with a sofabed that is quick to open and has a very thick mattress, two luxurious Napoleon-style armchairs, and TV, DVD, and wireless high-speed internet. The dining area contains an expandable dining table surrounded by comfortable leather dining chairs, and can seat 10 if the desire for hosting a large dinner party takes hold. There is also another seated area with a large leather sofabed making it comfortable to sit in different parts of the apartment to read or chat.

Proceeding through the apartment, the quirky nature of Marais apartments is revealed by a series of doorways and stairs. Many of the apartments in this area are recuperated from several different spaces in very old buildings and thick, crooked walls, myriad steps up and down, and tilting floors are the norm. At right, a winding staircase leads 2 flights down to the 'cave' of the apartment - many Parisians use these underground storage areas to store wine. Back in the main level of the apartment, a step down from the dining area takes you to the kitchen. It is fully equipped with large refrigerator, 4 burner induction range and oven, clothes washer, dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, coffee pot, and more amenities.

The corridor, accessed by a step down from the dining area, leads first to a large bathroom with double sink vanity, toilet, and bathtub, and then to the main bedroom.

The bedroom contains a queen size (160 cm wide) bed and a chest of drawers, and two bedside tables with lamps for those lazy mornings in bed with the papers and a cup of coffee.

The Montorgueil district is centered around rue Montorgueil, a primarily pedestrian street which is a 'rue des commercants' - or shopping street par excellence.

This street is packed with all of the little shops any Parisian (or visitor) could want - greengrocers, butchers, fishmongers, bakeries (including Stohrer, a bakery and patisserie dating from 1730) flower shops, chocolate shops, wine stores, and even a few gelato shops.

The street serves as an artery running from Les Halles park (originally home to the largest central market in Paris but converted in the 1960's to a park and underground shopping mall, complete with cinemas) north to rue Reaumur.

Restaurants and cafes abound, as well as the scores of boutiques in the surrounding streets. The area has in recent years become a haven for young designers and this is evident in the small boutiques scattered throughout, but the larger clothing stores still remain as well, centered around rue Etienne Marcel, which runs toward Place des Victoires, a 5 minute walk away. The Louvre museum can easily be reached on foot.

An often missed treasure just across the street from the apartment is the Passage des Grands Cerfs, one of Paris's many enclosed passages - glass-roofed passageways lined with shops and boutiques. True to the neighbourhood, this passage contains several funky clothing stores, a restaurant, and a few galleries and furniture stores.

Closest metros are Reaumur Sebastopol and Etienne Marcel, line 4 and 3.
