A sophisticated haven, Atelier is a rare combination of stunning design, location and a five-star experience, all in a historic setting. The owner, a former hotelier with an eye for comfort, quality and style, has transformed a 17th century printing shop into a luxurious enclave while retaining the building’s architectural character and original charm. In a sea of ordinary apartment rentals, Atelier is truly one of a kind.
Located on a tiny, ancient street named for the gravel workers who once lived there, the apartment combines the features of a deluxe hotel with the comforts of an exclusive private residence. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds -- an authentic Parisian neighborhood where you can live like a local -- away from the tourist hordes -- but centrally located on the Right Bank and close to all of the major tourist sites. The area is diverse, with a bohemian “SoHo” vibe and an eclectic mix of boutiques, art galleries and sought after restaurants interspersed with cafes, ethnic eateries and Chinese wholesalers. The Pompidou Center is down the street, and Notre Dame, the Louvre, the romantic gardens of the Palais Royal, the hip Rue Montorgueil and the heart of the historic Marais and Jewish Quarter are all an easy stroll. If you’d rather take public transport, the Arts et Metiers metro, around the corner, will whisk you virtually anywhere in Paris in minutes.
Named for the 30+ foot wall of glass that bathes the apartment with light, Atelier’s dramatic high-ceiling with original beams creates a sense of space that is rare in Parisian apartments. The expansive living/dining area is tastefully furnished with fine art, a flat screen TV and a dramatic eco-friendly fireplace; it features a dining table for six, and a high-quality convertible sofa with a supremely comfortable queen size mattress for two additional guests. Equipped with a commercial grade range, the chef’s kitchen is a show-stopper, ideal for creating gourmet meals with provisions from the nearby Marche des Enfants Rouges, the oldest open-air market in Paris, named one of the World’s Top Food Markets by Travel and Leisure Magazine. The adjacent master bath has a large walk-in rain shower, Carrera marble and original stone walls.
A beautiful spiral staircase leads to the completely private master bedroom, an elegant retreat outfitted with a king-size four-poster bed and luxury linens. And because Atelier is situated off a quiet courtyard, you’ll be ensured a restful night’s sleep. Across the hall is a chic studio, which can be joined to create a two-bedroom/two bath set-up that sleeps six. The studio, with its own mini-kitchen and additional separate entrance accommodates two more guests on a second high quality sofa bed.
Your experience is made complete with unparalleled standards of cleanliness, attention to detail and customer service. See our reviews for Juliette (VRBO 218078) & Petite Maison (224018); we know what our guests want, and we take very good care of them.
If you’re a discerning traveler who prefers an authentic Parisian experience in a environment of unparalleled quality, comfort and design, Atelier is a perfect choice.

I wanted to express my gratitude for your warm and exquisite hospitality. We celebrated a wonderful long weekend in Paris. Your apartment is refreshingly zen and artistic. Thank you so much for the wine and vegetables! We warmed up by the fire, and enjoyed the bottle of wine. Our evenings were quiet and cozy. I felt like I was staying at a five-star hotel. A perfect place to nest after a day of exploring the museums and cafes. I have recommended your place to my friends, and I shall definitely be returning for another rendezvous in the future. Thank you again!

This was my first time renting an apartment instead of getting a hotel room. Because of my experience, I will hopefully never have to get a hotel again. The apartment was wonderful. It looks exactly like the pictures. The owner emailed us some helpful tips and advice which we tried to follow (time was tight). The apartment manager David, met us at the apartment when we arrived. He had the apartment heated up for us, gave us a tour and also offered some advice. When we were in the States, we were unable to make a dinner reservation. David took care of it and made one for us. I went to Paris with my boyfriend, his dad and his sister and a friend. There was 5 of us total and the apartment felt cozy and homelike. It is located by two metro stops- so you can get anywhere you need to. Great location. Great hospitality, Wonderful Experience. Will be back.

Perfect for our family
Perfect for our family
Amazing location for young family. It was just a few blocks to Pompidou Center and then short walk down to the river, Notre Dame, etc. It made an extremely good home base for parents and kids, with so many incredible places to visit (and eat) so close by. Would have been great for just parents too! We stayed in the one BR apartment, with two kids on pullout couch, and parents and a 2 year old upstairs in the loft bedroom. It was plenty of space for us and the decor is charming. The winding stair case maybe not ideal for new walkers or senior citizens but was not a problem for us. owners and on site manager very responsive. We appreciated driver meeting us at train station to facilitate acclimation. One rainy morning we were able to easily access the backed up video library. We hope to return.

Very Nice Property
Very Nice Property
We stayed at this property for 5 days prior to Christmas in 2011. We have never stayed at a property other than a hotel, so this was a new experience and we were not sure what to expect. We rented this property as a 2 bedroom and were very comfortable. The property is very clean and the pictures certainly do the property justice. I also want to say that the service associated with the property was fantastic. Everything was arranged prior to our arrival including pick up from the train station. The local property manager helped us with everything from minor questions about the property to restaurant recommendations and reservations. There is also a very interesting wine bar very close by (very busy, very nice wine, reasonble prices, and very helpful with recommendations). This apartment is conveniently located...only a 10 to 15 minute walk to Notre Dame. We would stay again.
