Location : Paris Arrondissement 4, Paris, Ile-de-France (Paris Area), France, Europe (Saint Paul Metro-1 minute away)
Accommodations : Apartment-2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed – 1.5 Baths – (Sleeps 4-5)
Our apartment has the most amazing, convenient, sought after location in the heart of Paris on the quiet side of the beautiful Marais district. After living in Paris for 5 years previously, in many different locations, this is truly one the best in terms of position.
Close to the Seine, Bastille, Opera , Hotel de Ville, Notre Dame, the Louvre several open markets, Metro stations , buses, fashionable shops and restaurants. All within walking distance.
Since we have purchased the apartment it has been completely refurbished to create a space that is elegant, stylish and highly practical for short-term holidaymakers wishing for a distinct Parisian experience.
All the typical Parisian features of this 1850’s apartment have been preserved: original oak floor boards, clay tiles, marble fire place and classic French windows opening to a calm, spacious court yard.
Perfectly located on the 2nd floor WITH ELEVATOR this 55m2 (590 sq ft) space has a functional floor plan optimally redesigned.
The apartment is located in rue Charlemagne, right next to metro Saint Paul in the Marais. It has a separate kitchen and separate WC. Fully equipped and accessorized with classic glassware, cook ware and all new white goods. It is a joy to cook the local market produce and you will save an enormous amount being able to prepare your own meals.
The bathroom, which is large by Paris standards, has been completely remodeled, re-tiled with a second toilet so that the apartment will comfortably accommodate 2 couples or a larger family. VERY FEW Paris apartments have 2 WCs. Included in the bathroom is a new washer and separate dryer.
There are 2 bedrooms. All sheets and bedding are provided. There is a King sized bed 160cm x 200cm (63 x 79 in) in the Master bedroom and 2 King singles 90cm x 200cm (35 x 79 in) which can be joined together to make a King double, in the 2nd bedroom.
Minimum rental is one week: (seven nights) There is a cleaning fee to clean the apartment and launder sheets after you leave. We mail you the keys so there is no need to go to another location once you arrive in Paris.
The rue Charlemagne neighborhood is quite special, in the heart of the Marais and on the safe, peaceful side of Rue Rivoli. There is a gated back entrance from the apartment courtyard directly onto Place Saint Paul where the Line 1 Metro stops. On the other side of rue Charlemagne is Village Saint Paul with art galleries, antique shops, the Seine and Isle St Louis.
Continuing on rue Charlemagne is the remains of the historic wall built by Philippe Auguste (before he went to the Crusades) as well as the impressive Lycee Charlemagne. It is a typically Parisian area inhabited by Parisians.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: My name is Steven Bishop, I am an Australian clown touring in Cirque du Soleil's show 'Varekai' with my wife, Cathryn, and 4 children. Currently we are performing in Europe until the end of 2010. For many years, Cathryn and I had dreamed of owning an apartment in Paris. When a friend called and said she had found this gem in rue Charlemagne, we knew our dream had come true. Our apartment in Paris is our 'pied de terre' while we tour Europe with Cirque. It has been newly renovated with our large family in mind and the result has been beyond our expectations. We have used our extensive touring experience to equip the apartment with the essentials desired by short term travelers for quality living. As we continue our touring experiences through out Europe we have great pleasure in bringing back to the apartment 'a few of our favourite things' which we collect along the way.
Why the Owner Chose Saint Gervais, Paris, France:
Paris holds a significant place in our heart. We have many good friends and mentors here. Both, Cathryn and I spent a very important part of our growth and development as people and performers here. We learnt to stilt walk in Paris, “dorer des onions”, cook a mean couscous…..we learnt the art of “la joie de vivre”. It was in Paris, on the right bank of the Seine, on a warm June day, before a crowded passing “bateaux mouches”, that I proposed to Cathryn. My wife and I have since bought our “fabulous four” children to Paris and in turn they too have each discovered a part of themselves here. It was also in Paris where I discovered my clown at the Ecole Jacque Lecoq theatre school. How could I have known that performing this clown with Cirque du Soleil, touring all over the world, would one day help bring me back here to a place of my own. This is my story of Paris. For wherever I go I take it with me, as it is my “moveable feast” and the place in which I feel both at home and inspired. Enjoy for yourself! Steven Bishop and Cathryn Luckmann
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is in a building inhabited by real French people in the typical Parisian community of Saint Paul. Located in the heart of le Marais surrounded by cafes, boutiques and markets ensures a unique Parisian experience which is, believe it or not, getting harder and harder to find in Paris. And when you want to be a tourist and visit the museums, sights and spectacles, you are in the hub for metro, bus and bike routes. The central location provides for the needs of all members of a family or group with different interests. Being 'close to everything' means you can leave and return easily at your leisure, instead of having to pack for a full day out and about.
