A STYLISH, SOPHISTICATED APARTMENT ONE BLOCK FROM THE PICASSO MUSEUM.A 19th century hat factory in the Marais has been completely renovated into a chic, comfortable and modern apartment.

'The Picasso' is a one-bedroom, one-bath apartment with a well equipped open 'American' kitchen. The size is 50 meters square (550 square feet). Located on the second floor (third floor American) the building is equipped with an elevator.

Situated on the quiet street, rue de Thorigny, one block up from the Picasso Museum, we have created an apartment with meticulous attention to every detail. We have incorporated custom furnishings, antiques and original art with traditional wood floors. Original floor to ceiling windows overlook the street flooding the living and dining areas with light. The bedroom is located at the back of the apartment and has windows for excellent cross ventilation. The bedroom has built-in closets, and high quality linens and mattresses.

Here is what our first tenant said. 'We're here and happy - bed is great -apartment is absolutely lovely, and what can we say about the location--beyond the best!'

This unit can be combined with :

- the adjoining one studio apartment (a double door connects both units) to accommodate 8 people total-- 4 people in the 2 bedrooms and 4 people on the sofa beds in each of the livingrooms. Our studio unit is VRBO Listing ##450145.

- the adjoining 2-bedroom apartment (double door connects both units) to accommodate 10 people total-- 6 people in the 3 bedrooms and 4 people on the sofa beds in each of the livingrooms. Our one-bedroom unit is VRBO Listing #155068.

You can also choose to rent out all these 3 units accommodating up to 12 people. Please feel free to email us to find the best configuration for your group!


There is high speed wifi, free local calls within France, free calls to cell phones and landlines to the US and Canada, and free calls to landlines in over 200 other countries (please inquire about your particular country).


Excellent access to the metro. St. Sebastien Froissart is the closest metro stop. About a five minute walk. There is excellent bus service as well.


Our location is extraordinary with great restaurants, art galleries and fashionable shops at your doorstep. There are narrow streets that have not changed for centuries. You will be one block from the Picasso Museum, an easy walk to Place des Vosges, the Musee Carnavalet, the Pompidou Center, the Bastille Opera and the Jewish Museum. The latin quarter (St. Germain) is a half hour stroll away. Rue de Bretagne, famous for its food purveyors and its historic covered market 'Enfants Rouges' is a few short blocks away.


In our continual efforts to make your stay as enjoyable and convenient as possible, we are happy to offer our guests our SMARTY phone, which will become your new Parisian best friend!!! Avoid high roaming data costs and enjoy all that technology has to offer-- 4G, unlimited calls (including abroad), and GPS services to make walking around in Paris easier-- all for the rate of 5 euros a day, essentially the cost of a fancy Parisian coffee :) Please let us know upon booking that you are interested so we can reserve a SMARTY for your stay.

lovely Paris apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

had a wonderful time and so appreciated the video help with everything, especially the front door! The apartment was absolutely lovely with all that we needed, three women coming from a painting workshop and wanting to explore the heart of Paris.

We also so appreciated the pick up from the train, for novice Americans it couldn't have been better!!

hope to be back soon!!

Lovely experience

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in the very best location. Really appreciated being picked up at the airport and the availability of Sophie and others to problem solve any small hitches. During our stay, a heat wave ensued and the staff really tried to make us as comfortable as possible given there was no air conditioning. That effort made a huge impression and after a few days of heat we were back to enjoying this lovely apartment and had a great time. I couldn't recommend the owner more highly. She was available and exceedingly kind. I couldn't imagine a nicer little nest to center your Paris experience around.

Great location. Comfy Bed, and Quiet

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is adequate in a quiet location on a "village"-like street in the Marais. It was clean, the bed was firm, the kitchen had everything we needed, and there was plenty of decent lighting. It is not large, luxurious or charming.

There was not hand soap, nor enough toilet paper for our stay, which was disappointing. The living room furniture needs to be cleaned.

Lots of interesting museums, shops, and restaurants outside the door. If you want an apartment in the Marais, this is probably a good value.

Wonderful place in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in the Marais is a fabulous location for your stay in Paris. The neighborhood is lively, but the apartment is in a quiet area and there were no noise problems. The unit is clean and spacious. Sophie, the owner, is full of energy and communication with her (and her team) was smooth. Having a driver meet you at the airport is absolutely fantastic and really distinguishes this rental.

Excellent for families and large parties

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 2 families --4 adults and 6 kids under 13 --the location was great. Very convenient to metro lines --walking distance to Notre Dame. We rented the 1 and 2 BR apartments and both were just what we needed with the sofa beds.

The hosts went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable --the transportation arrangements for pick up to the apartment helped us not have to think about anything --we found Uber was great to get back but there was also offer for transport back too. They also accommodated a late check out so we could enjoy every minute in the city.

The info video and directions for keys/building code entry were very thorough and helpful as was the guide books inside the apt. --made our stay great.

We'd definitely stay again.
