The apartment is in the heart of the Marais, 200 feet from Place des Vosges, at 5 minutes walking distance from the Ile Saint Louis and from Notre Dame.
The Marais needs no introduction these days!
Much of the area dates from the 16th and 17th Century, featuring narrow streets, fine architecture, boutiques, antique shops, restaurants, cafés. Strict building laws protect its authenticity.
This is where Parisians choose to wander on weekends! The centerpiece is, of course, the Place des Vosges, the purest example of 17th Century architecture, its arcaded facade set around a central park with trees and benches - great for a picnic lunch!
Five minutes walking distance to the Picasso and Carnavalet Museums, 10 mins by foot to Notre Dame, Ile St Louis, , Ile de la Cité, 3 mins. to Bastille Opera and much more! Also a 3-minute walk to the trendiest boutique shopping on rue des Francs-Bourgeois. And just across the street is a wonderful selection of specialty food shops (bakery, deli, cheese, fish, wine and restaurants...) in the very best French tradition!
Located in a privileged position on the rue de Birague, on the second floor of a very well-kept sixteenth century building - a few yards from the Place des Vosges - with boutiques, restaurants, cafés. Enjoy a delightful apartment newly furnished while retaining character and charm thanks to its impressive exposed beams and French oak floor.
The majestic dining-living room is composed of a dining-area with a large table with seating for eight and a living-area with two single twin beds which can be made up as a queen-size bed, coffee table, armchairs, sofa, computer with high speed internet and wifi, cable TV (offering hundreds of international channels, including English language channels such as CNN), free international telephone, and stereo with CD player.
Two additional single beds can be added upon request.
The kitchen is gracefully integrated in the living room. It is equipped with an induction range, microwave/oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and washer-dryer.
The modern bathroom has a large modern shower with elegant black tiles. The bedroom has a queen-size bed which can be split into 2 twins

I am american and I live in San Francisco- I bought this apartment because I was impressed by the large living-room, the high ceilings and the general impression that I am in a pre-revolution bourgeois building. The view of the streets from the windows reinforce this authenticity. The neighborhood is dynamic and totally parisian. It contains many of the best food stores and restaurants of Paris.
Sauveur Chemouni purchased this apartment in 2000
To me, Paris being the greatest place in the world, and this neighborhood being the greatest neighborhood of Paris, my decision was easy
Open the curtains and see Paris life thru the windows while having your breakfast. Then you can't resist to go out .
Close the curtains,and you are back to your quiet and private universe.
Bonjour, My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the apartment and were very pleased at the updating since our previous month long stay in March 2011.
The new windows really did keep much of the outside noise outside and the new storage compartment was perfect for all of our things.
Paint and new appliances were fine, although, I did miss the small utility table in the kitchen.
My only suggestion would be to replace the chairs as they are worn and not real comfortable.
Dominique was very helpful and the place was immaculate when we arrived. (for any stay longer, I would need more linens)
We will probably be getting in touch with you for another stay in the near future.
Apartamento muy bien ubicado, limpio y bien equipado.
Dueño del apartamento muy atento y siempre estuvo en comunicación.
Our stay was wonderful and Josephine was lovely. The apartment accommodated all 5 five us comfortably. We loved the neighborhood - close to parks, shops, restaurants, and transportation. The airline lost our luggage, and Josephine was very helpful in arranging for the delivery. Highly recommend this apartment!
We were greeted by Josephine, a lovely host who took good care of us, and left us bottles of water and orange juice, which my daughters were happy to get! The apartment is beautiful and spacious. We brought our three daughters, so we had an extra bed set up, which worked out well. The location is nice. We enjoyed being close to the Place des Voges, and there are many small markets, food options, and shops nearby. All of the people working in these shops who were subjected to my very broken HS French from 20 years ago were extremely nice and patient with me. The walk to the Metro is less than 5 minutes. The ride to the Eiffel Tower is about 20-30 minutes by Metro, but other places of interest are closer. The apartment was well-furnished, with nice linens and ample housewares. My only complaint is that the AC didn't seem to work that well. The area does have some city noise, but the windows are very effective in blocking the sound.
The apartment itself had everything one could ever want or need. There are floor to ceiling windows in the living room that enable to you to still people watch on the street even though you are in the comfort of the apartment. That was a huge unexpected benefit as you never lost sight of the fact that you were actually in Paris. It was 80 degrees while we were there and the AC unit and fan kept the apartment very comfortable.
The Bathroom has a wonderful rainfall shower with good pressure and lots of water unlike other places we have stayed.
The Kitchen had everything you needed to make great breakfasts, lunches, and some basic dinners. There is a washer/dryer and dishwasher in the kitchen so there was no need to spend alot of extra time in the kitchen washing out stains on the kids clothes or doing dishes.
The Bedroom had a very comfortable bed that would work perfectly for two average sized adults or children. We put our kids in there and slept in the very spacious and comfortable bed in the living room. I am quite tall and even at 6'6" the bed was perfect for me. Despite being one floor off the main street road noise was never a problem for us at any time throughout the day.
The Living Room had a very comfortable sitting area. The huge dining room table made for a great place to eat and plan our day. The WIFI was seamless and worked perfectly the entire time we were there. The small desk enabled me to setup my work computer to stay in touch with my office at home. We did not use the TV much prefering to use the internet.
Once again we could not recommend it enough and would stay here again in a heartbeat if we could.
We had an amazing time! The apartment is wonderful and the location is a dream.
We enjoyed exploring the neighborhood as well as taking both the metro and bus
all over the city. I would definetly mention the bus connection, with your
description of your apartment, as the stop was practically right outside the
door and (depending upon the time of day)often was easier than the metro
for getting to certain locations....
Thank you again! We hope to return one day!
My wife and I spent a week in this apartment in October 2015, and enjoyed the amenities offered by the host and the nearly perfect Paris location. With the Marais right behind you, and the Bastille area (underrated) 5 minutes away, this is a VERY centrally-located Paris apartment. Ample shopping and countless restaurants were all right there, and it was very easy to jump on the metro to reach anywhere in Paris. It is in a bustling area of the city, so if you are looking for quiet evenings, this may not be the location for you, but it worked out perfectly for us!
Paris can offer almost everything
