Paris Arrondissement 4 apartment description
In the heart of historic Marais, just a step from the 17th Century Place des Vosges and five minutes to the Place de la Bastille and the Opera, Picasso Museum, not to mention the best Sunday market in Paris and much more - the Marais is where it all happens! Sidewalk cafes, restaurants, boutiques from designer to funky, and medieval streets with a surprise at every turn. Ten minutes' walk will take you to the banks of the Seine, the Ile St Louis, Notre Dame Cathedral and much more! Take a leisurely drink at our favourite Cafe des Phares at the Bastille and wait for the world to come to you! Amazing Sunday street market on the Boulevard Richard Lenoir is the best in Paris, and Monoprix for more mundane requirements both five minutes walk!
Look out of the living room window and you can see the Place des Vosges framed within a 17th century porch leading into the square - often with a free classical concert by buskers taking advantage of the excellent accoustics!! In a old well-kept building dating from the 17th and 18th centuries - a great central location for seeing everything or doing nothing! A cosy haven of peace after a hard day's sightseeing. Bright and light, on the first floor (one flight walk up) totally redesigned and refurbished recently to an excellent standard. Some 45 square meters. A traditional polished oak floor throughout, rugs and a happy mix of antique and modern furniture.
The main room has dining furniture for four, a work unit for your computer, comfortable chairs and a hi-tech state-of-the-art double sofabed with full size comfortable mattress (opens with the flick of a finger!), and an eclectic selection of English books! Cable TV (BBC, CNN ...) Open plan well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, dishwasher, microwave. Shower-room with WC and clothes washer. Glass doors from living room to Bedroom with Twin Beds (can be made up as wide double) and good closet space.
WIFI connection. All beds are equipped with cosy duvets, bed and bath linen supplied. Double glazing and electric heating. English speaking apartment manager!

Living as Parisiennes
Living as Parisiennes
Bonjour Vicky, A brief note of thank you for providing Fredi and I an opportunity to live as Parisiennes for a few brief days. We trust the cleaner found everything in order as it was our intent to treat your apartment as our own. By the end of our stay, we looked forward each evening to returning to our "home" away from home and our very comfortable beds. This was our first, in four trips, Paris apartment experience. I believe our experience in your apartment spoiled us; we may never book a hotel room in Paris again. The location, equally located between Metro Bastille and Metro St.-Paul, was ideal. The kitchen was convenient, but underutiized. Being on holiday, we did not attempt any serious meals. However, having a microwave and fridge made our acquisitions of bakery items, fruit, yogurt, coffee, wine, etc. a big plus, especially with Votre Marché located across the street. Also, being right at Place de Vosges, we ate several meals at Café Hugo. We found the food to be very tasty and appealing and definitely affordable. Speaking of Votre Marché, we did not get an opportunity to say 'Thank You' again to les hommes at Votre Marché. If you or your son should speak to them, please express our gratitude for everything, especially receipt of our delayed luggage. Again, merci beaucoup for our Parisienne experience, Yolanda

My husband and I just recently spent 2 weeks in this apartment. We have stayed in several other apartments in Paris before and this was our favorite. It has old world charm. It is in a very convenient location with 2 metro stops, a Monoprix, several cafes and patisseries and some wonderful restaurants very close by. In addition, there is a fruit stand/small grocery store almost directly across the street. The apartment itself was very clean and well-maintained with an extremely comfortable bed and good closet space. Plus I loved sitting in the window seat and "watching the world go by". For others my only concern would be if you are a light sleeper like I am. In the winter the windows and the doors to the bedroom blocked out the noise from the local bar and restaurant, but in warmer weather when you might need to have the windows open, the noise level might be a problem. Vicky was wonderful to work with. From the first time that we expressed interest in renting this apartment, she always responded to my e-mails immediately and we were always able to reach her or someone else at the Paris office with any concerns or questions that we had. Thanks to all of you for providing the home base for our wonderful time in Paris.
