Paris Arrondissement 4 apartment description

This completely renovated and carefully owner-maintained pied-à-terre is located on charming Rue Elzevir in the historic Marais district of Paris, France. This neighborhood provides the perfect Parisian experience from sunny, outdoor brassieres to the latest shopping on Rue Des Francs Bourgeois, lunch in the Place des Vosges to romantic walks along the Seine. Our quiet, light-filled and roomy one bedroom apartment (62 sq. m., 667 sq. ft.) is located on the third floor of a 17th century building. Near metro stations Saint-Paul (line 1), Rambuteau (line 11) and Chemin Vert (line 8).

The American-style kitchen opens into the spacious livingroom which has oak floors and warm light from both the historic Rue du Parc Royal and the quiet cobblestone courtyard. The decor is urban modernist, 'Paris meets Wallpaper*'. In the bedroom is a queen-sized bed designed by Amsterdam artist Maroeska Metz. The well-equipped kitchen can be used to prepare everything from a petit dejeuner to a gourmet dinner. After spending the day in Paris, you can pamper yourself in the granite and mosaic tiled bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate tub.

For your comfort, this is a non-smoking apartment. Children under 10 only allowed with permission of owners. For many more details, please visit our website (link further down this page).

                            We called Elzevir "home" for just under a month, this was our second stay at the Apartment, Things we love.... lots of natural light, lots of storage and hanging space, comfortable bed and cosy duvet, blackout drapes in the bedroom, fabulous bathroom, well appointed kitchen, easy to follow instructions for appliances and a spotlessly clean apartment with a welcoming roses and a bottle of wine. Very unusually for a rental apartment, everything that we wanted to find, but expected to have to buy, was there in the Elzevir apartment. Bill and Ineke are fabulously responsive by email and were also proactive in ensuring that everything was going well with our vacation. Laurent, the recommended taxi driver, was very helpful and also confirmed each journey by email. The property manager, Alex, was also very responsive and helpful. The location of the apartment is ideal. It's close to two metro stations and a walk away from the Bastille markets and Notre Dame. Le Marais is full of great restaurants, bars, cafes and fromagerie. There are a selection of patisseries, supermarkets, butchers and other speciality food stores within a few minutes walk from the apartment. We're looking forward to our next stay at the Elzevir Apartment.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                            Owner response: Thank you for your nice comments and look forward to your next stay. Best wishes, Bill and Ineke.

                            Nice location away from crowded tourist areas. Apartment is comfortable for two people. if you are familiar with Paris, no need to look any further.

                            Owner response: We're glad you found our apartment comfortable and quiet. The double windows on the street side really eliminate any noise along with thick curtains in the bedroom. We are looking to being in the apartment in a few days for a holiday break.

                            Everything was as advertised or better. A very nice apartment -- clean, modern and well equipped. We had one or two minor questions while we were there, and the owner responded immediately with clear and helpful information. Would definitely rent this one again.

                            Great location. Extremely well furnished, although some items were difficult to operate, e.g. washer-dryer. Would definitely recommend this to people unless they were on a tight budget. Expensive, but worth the extra $$$ all things considered. Owners extremely well organized and easily accessible. The recommended taxi driver to and from CDG was excellent. Would do it all over again if I had the chance.

                            We enjoyed our stay at Bill's place very much. The situation is perfect. Beautiful "cartier", 2 metro station in the walking distance, a lot of nice shops and restaraunts. The apartment is beautiful and well designed. We were welcomed with a nice bouquet of roses on the table and a bottle of tasty red wine. In the apartment we found all the necessary things. The thing that impressed us was a nice collection of books about Paris, french films and music. Owners recommendation also were well made and useful. Bill was very helpful. Thank you! It was a nice experience.

                            This was my second stay in the Elzevir apartment. It is perfectly appointed and the location could not be better for touring Paris. I had sold my apartment in Paris and was interested in only renting for periods of two weeks. Luckily, I found this one.

                            My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at The Elzevir Apartment for six nights. It is beautifully appointed and is located on a lovely street in The Marais district, next door to a wine shop and chocolate shop. It is within walking distance of many restaurants and the metro station. Bill and Ineke are wonderful hosts and have thought of everything, down to the apartment “manuals” that guide you easily through the use of every appliance in the apartment, and lists of restaurants and places to see in the neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay so much that we plan on returning next year!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: Both of us love to travel (though we never have enough time). I work at a software company while my wife has started her own perfume business (look at ineke . dot . com). We try to return to France twice per year for at least three months to stay at our pied-à-terre. One day (soon we hope), we'll retire and relax!

                          Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
                          Both of us lived in Paris for a number of years. Before we returned to the US, we decided we wanted to buy an apartment so we could come back to Paris every year, visit our friends and enjoy this beautiful city.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Our apartment is very open, bright and comfortable. Besides being a roomy apartment, we live in a wonderful neighborhood with nice shops, restaurants, brasseries and parks. It is always a pleasure to return to Paris and *our* neighborhood.
