About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Here you will find clean, modern lines within a 200-year-old space of rough stone & brick walls and exposed wood beam ceilings. The owner/architect has renovated this light and airy large studio to give you a Parisian loft space, entirely open, with four great windows facing out to the street and the Place du Bourg-Tibourg, near the BHV in the Marais. The closest Metro is the Hôtel de Ville (lines 1&11).

You go up a tiny stair from the street to the second floor, and walk into the grand open living space. It has dining for four, a large bed for two and a fold-out sofa bed for one. There is high speed internet access, cable TV, VCR, CD player, stereo and telephone. The kitchen has a full refrigerator and freezer, sink, gas and electric stove top, oven, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, microwave, coffee pot, tea kettle, glasses and dishes, pots and pans.

The bathroom, following the general aesthetic, is not closed off but hidden behind a partition, keeping an open, airy quality to the space. There is a grand bathtub with shower behind the partition, and the toilet is secluded behind a curtain. Closet and storage space is plentiful. We supply sheets and towels.

About The Owner

Frankly, I never thought I'd end up living in Paris but - you see, I met a man. On a ski trip - Alps - chalet - fireplace - well, it's been ten years. I can't give you the complete insider's guide to Paris yet, (I believe that takes three generations) but I can give you an ex-New Yorker's guide to this fabulous City of Lights.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2004

Why The Owner chose Paris

Our first studio was my husbands - that's where we lived once we decided to share a continent. We were there until our son was about negative-one-month old, and we didn't want to have to convert the bidet into a bassinet. Once we moved, I started renting out that apartment and everything fell into place. As an architect, I loved fixing up the apartments, and as an ex-pat, I loved meeting the people who came to enjoy their vacations in Paris.

Great location !

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this spot! Located in the trendy Marais. Close to the metro and the train to return to CDG.

Plenty of bistros with great food including the ground floor of this 300 hundred year old property.mare a short walk away as is Notre Dame?

The flat is cozy, the bed comfortable and the views out the corner windows great.

The bistro staff use the second floor as their quarters during the work day but it does not interfere with the flat.

The one thing that could be better is the shower/ bath enclosure( at least a new shower curtain.)

We would certainly come back. Naomi was most helpful and ready to solve any problems.

Exciting Paris

  • 5 of 5

If you want to feel Paris in all senses this is the place for you. We spent a month in this wonderful space this past summer. After having several Paris visits in very quiet accommodations we decided to try something different. We wanted to be where there was action and life. This was the perfect place. The location provided a constant source of entertainment from our windows and was within walking distance of so many attractions. Wonderful bread and croissants were available just across the streets and dining places are everywhere. We managed the two flights of stairs without difficulty even though they're narrow and my husband is 83. Traveling with carry on sized luggage was a help. We loved all the storage space and wonderful kitchen facilities--unusual in a studio setting. Naomi was always on hand if we needed anything. Our dream is to be able to return for another month. . .or maybe two!! Jan and Arthur, Wolfville, N.S., Canada

Lovely flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

A perfect flat for a stay in Paris. Clean, bright, and very well situated. Comfortably accommodates three. Naomi was a a lovely host, and very helpful. Our stay in Paris was a great success, due in large part to our having found such a perfect place to stay.

Dream Honeymoon hideaway

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe it's taken me so long to write this review - Naomi's beautiful studio absolutely deserves your consideration if you are looking for a wonderful, affordable place to stay in one of Paris' most vibrant neighborhoods! It was truly perfect for a couple. The photographs are completely accurate, and I would say that the apartment itself is every bit as charming as it appears. We stayed there for the second week of our honeymoon, after traveling in Scotland and England. Naomi is a warm and communicative host; she was not available to meet us in person, but had someone waiting for us to welcome us to the apartment with keys and instructions. She also helped us to arrange our car to the airport on our last day in Paris. We are New Yorkers, and therefore used to sharing economical spaces - but honestly, the openness and thoughtful design of this beautiful studio makes it feel larger than it is. I can understand that people who don't live in a big city might find the noise from the cafes below disturbing - we felt right at home, and the windows of the apartment do a great job in sealing out the sounds from below at night. We would turn on the fan and the noise would disappear. Mornings were one of my favorite times of day - the square is bustling with people, and there is a wonderful cafe across the street in which to have a leisurely breakfast. The apartment's location truly cannot be beat for sightseeing - if you like to walk, you can walk almost anywhere in central Paris; if you are comfortable with public transport (as anyone should be in Paris) the closest line is the 1, which is also the most convenient line for transferring to anywhere at all. The only tiny difficulties were with the phone, which we could not seem to get to work properly, and the internet connection, which our iPhones and iPad did not seem to like very much - if we turned on one, we had to fully shut the others down, or it wouldn't connect, but that may be an issue with the devices. As I said, we were on our honeymoon, so we weren't too interested in communicating with the outside world; if you have a lot of business to conduct, this might be a concern for you. Otherwise, if you are looking for a unique adventure for an INCREDIBLY reasonable price, don't hesitate to book here. We would love to return when we visit Paris again!
