Property description

The apartment is right in the marais and gets direct sunlight in the living room in the afternoon (not frequently the case in the marais!) and sun in the kitchen, bathroom and back bedroom in the morning. Parquet floors in main rooms, marble in the kitchen. Both sofas in the living room (28m2) fold out as sofabeds if necessary. There is a hifi sound system, a TV, and a DVD player.
All facilities are there - microwave, gas cooker, expresso-maker, hairdryer. The beds are top quality (simmons top of the range) and so is all the linen.

The rent is 1250 euros per week or 3100 per month. I can only accept a minimum stay of one week - please understand that. There is really no point in asking me if I will accept a three-day booking. A friend of mine is there to greet people and show them around but that takes time. We manage things very well but smaller rental periods are just not viable. Sorry about that. Departures: 8am onwards.

Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.

Pecquay is a quiet side street, parallel to rue des archives; it's right in the heart of the marais so you can walk to many of the tourist attractions - including the louvre, musée carnavalet, musée picasso, the pompidou centre etc. It's a few minutes' walk up the rue francs bourgeois to the place des vosges


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Myself and nicolas live in le havre and both work in the university; i do eighteenth-century literature; he's in the law department. I grew up in dublin and went from tcd to nyu and then the ehess and now i'm very happy in the small quality environment of the university of le havre (which i love!).

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
The Marais is my favourite area in Paris - it's like being in a village in the heart of the most beautiful city. Just walking the streets is a pleasure and I love its bars and cafés and museums and shops. Right beside the apartment is the 'foody' end of rue Rambuteau with a whole selection of top-notch cheese, wine, cake shops and fruit vendors - pricey! but nice for treats!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It took me ages to find the apartment because I wanted an apartment that was bright and with direct sunlight but most of the streets in the Marais are narrow with five floors both sides of the street. I also wanted an apartment that was on a calm side street but near all my favourite hangouts. Finally I found Pecquay - there's a building opposite but it's only three floors and the apartment is on the third floor so ... it gets the sunlight!!! and it's quiet... One of the guests said it was noisy but they were there while there were roadworks going on on Rue Rambuteau... It's even quieter now because that road has now only one lane of traffic and big wide footpaths on both sides... and trees!
