Paris Arrondissement 3 apartment description
This apartment is centrally located in the Marais, close to a metro stop, yet comfortable walking distance to the Pompidou Center (Museum of Modern Art), Picasso Museum and Notre Dame.
Spend your days wandering the narrow streets, discovering the hidden treasures of the Marais—museums, art galleries, boutiques, cafes, quaint squares, gourmet restaurants and epicurean delights.
We recently remodeled Rose and it offers you all the comforts when traveling away from home. Nestled on a quiet cobblestone courtyard, you will find a peaceful haven to relax after a busy day sightseeing, or you may even decide to stay inside, curled up with a good book.
Located on the ground floor, with tall French doors opening onto the flowered courtyard, it can comfortably accommodate 4 adults. There is an open ‘loft-style’ living space with high ceilings and an interior spiral staircase leading up to the mezzanine where there is a double bed, with a firm mattress.
We provide high quality French linen sheets and towels (pure cotton).
Downstairs is a sofa, which converts to a comfortable double bed. You will find a fully equipped kitchen, with coffee maker, espresso machine, full size refrigerator, stove, oven, and microwave. Here is also the bathroom where you will find a large walk-in shower as well as a washer/dryer.
For those who need to stay “connected”, there is broadband WI-FI internet access as well as the International Herald Tribune delivered to your door daily. Additionally, there is cable TV, with many international channels such as CNN, BBC, CNBC, MTV, VH1, ZDF etc.
You will also find a large selection of books on Paris as well as many English novels and classics, a CD player and a multi-system DVD player, with a selection of CDs and DVDs. There is a telephone and answering machine and all calls in France are included in our rental price.
So, a little about us: we are ex-pats (a family of 4), who have spent several years in Paris. We greet all of our renters and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
We live nearby and are very familiar with the neighborhood; we can help with making restaurant reservations, offer suggestions of where to eat, where to go etc. We want our guests to have a taste of Parisian life!
Please note: Rose is a non-smoking apartment.
Rose is located just near the metro stop: Arts et Metiers. The neighborhood has many hidden treasures, such as art galleries and designer boutiques; due to many improvements in recent years, it has become one of the most sought after areas in Paris.
Young designers and artists have made this area their home. You will not find a throng of tourists when you go out your door, but a real Parisian neighborhood. Stay here long enough and you may find you too will get to know the shop owners.
Though not touristy, you are just a two-minute walk from Square du Temple and all the historical sites that abound. Here on Rue de Bretagne, you will find the oldest produce market in Paris, the Marche des Enfants Rouges, which has been recently renovated.
Organic food, seafood, a wine bar, the most colorful and tasty fruits and vegetables and many quality caterers such as Italian, Moroccan and Japenese are to be discovered inside this covered marketplace. Weekends are lively when the locals meet, talk and shop together.

More than room with a view
More than room with a view
My husband & I so enjoyed our 10+ days at the Rose Apt. and had a most wonderful stay because of the set-up & location. I came primarily for work, and had the fun of trotting off to catch one of several nearby Metro lines in the morning and returning to enjoy this non-touristy spot (all of Paris feeling safe at night, but this neighborhood - a neighborhood, not at all touristy as a good portion of the Marais now feels - especially so). We got to know staff at the local tabac & cafes (all of Erica & Tom's recommendations great).The loft bedrm is just enough of a separation from main living space and we felt so nicely tucked in on several rainy nights. Big windows a plus (though the courtyard only gets so much light). As noted in other reviews, the Monoprix is literally 10 paces away; even more grocery options just a bit further. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

For our second trip to Paris, we were lucky to find this charming loft apartment for the three of us. Erica and Tom were extremely responsive to our needs. It had everything we needed at the end of our trip including a washer/dryer. The apartment has ample closet space and very comfortable beds. We enjoyed starting our days at the corner patisserie for coffee and croissants, then walking to Pompidou, Notre Dame and even the Jardin de Luxembourg. When we were tired of walking, it was convenient to have a choice between three Metro stops within a 5 minute walk. We loved the local bistros in the area. We highly recommend this apartment and will be back.

Truly a lovely place

My husband and I have lived in France and, since moving back to the U.S., have returned many times for extended visits. This means over the years we've rented a ton of different apartments in Paris, mostly in the Marais. We can honestly say that this "stylish loft on charming courtyard" is the best place we've found. It's in a good central location, yet quiet, and equipped with everything you need or might need. The owners are friendly and responsive. They were quick to solve a small problem with the phone--they just brought over a brand new phone! Everything works and everything is clean. There is enough storage space for your clothes and your suitcases (many Paris apartments have laughably minimal closets and no place to put empty luggage). The kitchen is comfortable for one person to cook in and contains all necessary appliances, pots, pans, etc. The bed and shower are large enough to contain my 6'5" husband--an important point! We delighted in the extensive library of travel books and novels. I especially appreciated how tasteful the decor is (many rentals seem to be furnished with hand-me-downs and throwaways). Since we still know people in Paris, we even entertained in this apartment. Our French friends were impressed, even jealous. Truly, you could live here permanently, it is that comfortable.
