Property description

With the Marais' boutiques and restaurants on your doorstep this beautiful property is located in the historic centre of Paris, walking distance to the majority of landmarks in the most sought-after district of the city.

A mix of modern and period design and a spacious (80m²) layout make for a calm, and comfortable environment. The sun filled property has high ceilings, original beams, and views on the Parisian skyline. We are on the 4th floor with elevator (5th US) of a classic Parisian building.

A fully equipped kitchen within the main living space has a large Bosch oven, 4 burners and a dishwasher. The large bathroom with bath and shower also includes a washing machine and separate dryer.

The comfortable sitting room has a huge flat screen TV, a selection of your Favourite Paris DVDs (from Midnight in Paris to Rataouille!) and books and a dining table with seating for 6 - 8 people.

The Master bedroom has a Queen Sized bed, luxury high-thread count cotton sheets and a very comfortable mattress. Delightful views look over the Parisian rooftops and sky.

The second bedroom is decorated for a child but the very comfortable and large 'Flexa' Danish-made single bed is also suitable for an adult or teenager.

We have two comfortable portable beds for extra guests if required.

Plenty of fluffy towels are provided.

Free Unlimited Telephone Calls to – United Kingdom, Europe, France, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Israel, Argentina. Includes calls to cell phones in USA and Canada.

Neighbourhood Insight:
At once a quaint and bustling neighbourhood, the 4th is jam-packed with shops, cafès, small museums and some the oldest architecture in Paris. A walk though it’s ancient maze-like streets is an extraordinary way to spend the day.

Explore the Place de Vosges, Paris' oldest square, and the Place du Marche Sainte Catherine, an incredible oasis that feels just like a Provence town square. Let rue Vielle de Temple lead you into the heart of the Marais, once the centre of the city's Jewsih community, and now home to legendary falafel spots like Chez Marianne and L'As du Falafel. Wander down the rue Saint Paul - a darling street filled with antique dealers, artisan galleries and bookshops - and just off it, the Village Saint Paul, a hidden treasure of interconnected courtyards.

Car: Not Necessary

The famous Marais neighborhood has everything you might need minutes from the apartment. Right outside is the famous Place des Vosges and many fantastic bistros and cafés open 7 days a week from 10am until midnight. A fabulous fresh markets is right on your doorstep twice a week!

In pour neighbourhood, you have a fruit and vegetable stand, newspaper shop/Tabac, florists, fishmonger and two bakeries. There are also two supermarkets within 5 minutes. The public transportation is very convenient - closest Metro stations are Breguet Sabin, (Line 5 12 minutes from Gare du Nord) and Chemin Vert (Line 8). There are roughly 8 bus lines leading all over Paris within a 5 minute walk.

An influx of new art galleries paired with arrivals on neighboring St Claude, and firmly anchored by the established, larger dealers (Thaddaeus Ropac, Emmanuel Perrotin, Yvon Lambert) a few streets away has made what was already a cool quartier, almost toxically trendy. Le Progrés, the café which used to be the preferred place for all the local artists, art dealers and fashionistas, while still retaining a portion of its deliberately scruffy clientele has been somewhat overshadowed by a new bastion of chic, the Café Charlot.

Check out the new galleries, innovative design and clothing shops, and then head over to Café Charlot. Pick one of the low tables with the comfy armchairs, bring a book, doesn’t matter which one- you won’t be reading it, like Karl over his fan you’ll be surreptitiously peering over it, to check out one of the best impromptu fashion shows in town. Trés cool, trust me.
