Paris Arrondissement 3 apartment description
It is a sunny and elegant apartment in the historical Marais, just close to the Picasso Museum!!!
Restored by an Italian architect in September 2011, the apartment is on the second floor (with lift) of a nice building of the late 1800’s. In the large living room there are a comfortable sofa, an antique fireplace, an LCD Sony TV and a fascinating “table de coup” built in Paris at the beginning of the XX century. The kitchen, linked to the living, is modern and furnished of all electrical appliances (dishwasher, washer dryer, microwave, coffee machine, etc). In the two bedrooms the large beds (160X200 cm) and the refined, colorful wallpapers create a warm, cosy and relaxing atmosphere... absolutely unique! The two bathrooms, one en-suite, have got showers, one has also got a bidet. The living room and one bedroom, full of light and sun thanks to the high and large windows, overlooks the shadowy courtyard of a school and old beautiful church. During the good season and in school hours the young children spend their breaks in the open.
The old restored parquet is one of the many elements of “charme” of this apartment which melts the modern and the antique, the bright colours and the pure white, the fonctionality and the elegance of the spaces. The exceptional location in the central part of the Marais offers the possibility to reach museum, parks, sites of interest, restaurants mostly at a walking distance. And, of course, shopping, shopping, shopping!
High speed internet connection and wifi, cable television, dvd player and cd player / radio, washer / dryer.
In the very center of Paris-Le Marais, close to Historic places and Museums, Restaurants and Shops!
Keywords: “La Perle du Marais”, a sunny and elegant apartment in the historical Marais, just close to the Picasso Museum!
Making unique the apartment, the walls are embellished with beautiful silkscreens signed by the most important and prestigious illustrators in the world: Hugo Pratt, the Pulitzer Prize-winner Art Spiegelman, the master of the comic strip José Muñoz, Lorenzo Mattotti (Le Monde, New Yorker ...) and the great Guido Scarabottolo.

My family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids ages 10 an 5) plus our nanny stayed at this beautiful flat for 2 weeks! Both of the bedrooms had really comfortable beds. The couch turns into a VERY comfortable bed!! It is nothing like the uncomfortable pullouts we have in the USA! The couch can sleep 2. It was VERY hot when we were there, and the owners bought 2 big fans for us, which made the flat so much for comfortable! There was plenty of hot water for both showers to be going at once. The flat was very clean, and they even had a gal that came and cleaned it after our first week. Each morning, we would go down and around the corner to the grocery and get baguettes, nutella, fruit, etc for breakfast. Since we had kids, we would then go out early to see the sights. It is very close to a few metro sites. On our way out, we would pick up food for sandwiches for our day trip...as we saw all the sites. Then would come back for naps in the afternoon. It was such a comfortable place! I liked the couch bc it would pull out and fit all of us on it for a movie. When you pull it out, you have a foot rest for everyone. You also could call back to the USA for free with the landline that is in the flat. My 10 year old called her best buddy to fill her in on all the amazing things she saw in Paris! Catherine was SO helpful with any questions we had while we were there. We have already recommended this flat to our friends! Great location...VERY VERY safe. We would TOTALLY stay here again! No doubts!!

My wife, daughter and I arrived in Paris to this most charming apartment, where we were greeted by Catherine who was an absolute delight. Nothing was too much trouble and she had a lot of great tips regarding the area. The apartment is excellent, being quite spacious with two bathrooms. It is next door to a school so there is the noise of children at various times, but this should be no real issue. They sound exactly the same all round the world. The apartment is located in a nice, safe street and the Marais is definitely a great area to stay. The streets nearby turn into the most amazing shopping district on a Sunday and is a great place to spend the afternoon strolling around. We loved the apartment and the Marais and were very disappointed to leave. I couldn't recommend it more highly and would definitely stay here again.

Owner response: Dear Neale, thank you so much for your kind answer. I'm very happy you had a pleasant stay in my property. I always wish my guests have a great time and feel at home. It’s true the school children have more than one break but fortunately French children are very well bred! I remember that when I visited the house for the first time I could see children running and playing cheerfully and it made me feel happy for the light-heartedness they showed. As a matter of fact the apartment is absolutely quiet in the evening and at night since there are no noises coming from the streets or shops as most of Parisian houses. I hope you may come back to Paris and consider the apartment your home!
Wonderful place to stay!

This is a near-perfect place to stay. It is clean and comfortable. There were two couples in our party and we had no problems. Our orientation was made easy by Catherine, who met us at the apartment and showed us how everything worked: dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, heat, etc and she had a book showing where we could find markets and other highlights. When we were getting ready to leave, she even took care of the taxi reservation for us. All of our communications with the owner were good too – Francesca responded to emails and concerns in a timely manner and was a delight to communicate with. The only thing that may be a concern to some is that the apartment windows look on to a school yard and – because we were there during school time – the children playing can be quite loud at around 8:30 am and at noon time. It did not bother us because most of the time, we were out of the apartment during the day. There are two flights of stairs – but there is also a tiny elevator for those who cannot or do not choose to take the stairs. The Marche Enfants Rouges is within walking distance as is Rue des Rosiers. It is a delightful 10 minute walk to the St Paul or Chemin Vert metro stops and it is very close to bus stops as well. The grocery store is a block away. Very convenient location. I recommend it highly.

There are many excellent points I could make about this Marais apartment, but I'll address the most basic concerns. This location is ideal as it is within easy access to many delightful destinations. The apartment is indeed in the heart of the Marais and the street is designed in a way that cars cannot fly up and down it. For city life, it's in the heart of everything but tranquil at the same time. The apartment building has an elevator that makes handling the heavy luggage easy. The building is beautifully maintained. Inside the apartment is enough space for a family to have their own rooms and visit in the living room without feeling at all confined. Having two bathrooms, especially a private bath off one of the rooms for parents is WONDERFUL. The apartment is kept well organized and incredibly clean. Appliances are state of the art and the showers have high quality fixtures. The WIFI was easy to access. Finally, the amount of light that enters the rooms is lovely. The high ceilings and abundance of light and space make this apartment an exceptional choice. The artwork is displayed with loving attention to theme and location. By the end of my visit, I had "made friends" with all of the characters in the art work on the walls and enjoyed the little museum within the apartment very much. Nearby activities: The owner recommends several shopping and dining locations nearby. As far as touring, I would research the schedules of the places you would like to go and plan accordingly. Time flies and it's easy to miss out on a day or touring if you do not rise early. The metro is a few blocks away.

Owner response: Dear Eileen It was been such a pleasure for me reading your appreciating review! I love artwork myself which is also my work here at home, so I've tried to share with my guests the emotions that illustrators like Pratt and Mattotti give to me. I thank you a lot for your kind words and wish you to be always accompanied by the characters you have made friends with! Best wishes
Very clean and comfortable and a great location

My husband, daughter and son-in-law and I spent 12 days in this great apartment last November, 2012. We were very impressed by the clealiness and bright, cheerful interior, very quiet location, convenience to monuments,activities, restaurants and shopping. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the welcoming and kind apartment manager who was dedicated to our comfort and immediately took care of an internet problem we encountered. We were provided with great recommendations for restaurants, groceries, directions, etc. The photos depict the apartment exactly. One bedroom abuts a wall and has no view but has its own bathroom with a shower. Beds were comfortable. Our only recommendation would be to replace the living room furniture with a more comfortable couch and chair. After long days of walking, more comfortable seating would have made the apartment perfect for 4 people. Everything else was perfect and we would definitely recommend this apartment to friends. We already have! Also, the owner was very gracious and responsive during the booking process. As a result of staying in this great apartment we had a wonderful experience staying in le Marais and can't wait to return!

Together with our friends (i.e. 2 couples) we had an excellent 1 week in Paris and in particular we really enjoyed the stay in your beautiful apartment The location was excellent and we walked everywhere including easy access to such places as The Louvre, Notre Dame, St Germaine, the Latin Quarter, the Seine etc and we had many close by options for cafes and restuarants. The interior décor of the apartment was very welcoming and friendly and everything we needed was available Jocelyne met us on arrival and again at departure and her service was also excellent. Many thanks and we hope to see you again the near future as we will for sure return to Paris again.

I loved your place! It was a very good surprise. Of course, the pictures from the website gave us a good idea of size and conditions, but the apartment didn't look that big on the pictures. :) It's so comfortable, I felt like home. You've thought about everything. I cannot think of any improvements that you should do. The beds are great! The condominium is very quiet. I met two or three neighbours at the stairs, otherwise I would think we were alone!The location is fantastic...
