About the property

2 bedrooms in Le Marais for Long Term Lease from Sept 2017

This 2-bedroom apartment is located between Places des Vosges and Ile St Louis and the Notre Dame.

This is a quiet, safe, functional apartment, no frills but in a great location as you can practically walk everywhere. It is also not hot in summer as we do not have the direct sun in the rooms.

From our kitchen window you can sometimes see the Republican guards on horse back going to “La Caserne Des Celestins” , or walk down half block to see the boats on the Port de L'Arsenal (of the River Seine).

Fashion shops, food stores, bistrols, restaurants, art galleries, all around Bastille and the small streets.

Open-air  Market/Marché: From 7.30 am to 2.00 pm..

Marché Beaumarche/Richard Lenoir : every Fridays and Sundays

Marché Richard Lenoir/Oberkamps : every Tuesdays and Thursdays

It measures 62m² (667 ft2) wooden flooring and is on the 1st floor (with an elevator) of a well maintained building dated around 1900 and has a very nice floral courtyard, off the street, thus very quiet.

The first bedroom

- has a small queen bed (160 x 200 cm) and a closet. The window also overlooks the quiet courtyard.

The 2nd Bedroom

- has 2 beds, a big double bed (140 x 200 cm) and a Single bed (90 x 200 cm). It has a Closet, a table and lamps. The window overlooks the quiet private courtyard.

The kitchen opens into the dining area and has a sofa that can sleep a small person if needed. It is fully equipped with 2 electric burners by induction, a small oven, micro-wave oven, a washing machine with a dryer, coffee maker, Toaster, dishes and utensils.

It overlooks the courtyard of the Rupublican Guards. So we are privileged to see horses trotting past on some days.

The bathroom has a bathtub, a shower curtain and a shower hook on the wall, a wash basin and the toilet.

Well-priced, well-located!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment suited our family of 5.... although we were barely there, when we were the place was very comfortable and met our needs well. At this price point we couldn't have asked for anything more. Very centrally located metro and buses just down the street, and a morning show of horses out the windows!

Excellent apartment, perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with a VRBO and it could not have been better!. The apartment was perfect for my husband, three teenage daughters and myself. Julia was incredibly accommodating in meeting us and offering advice on the neighborhood and sightseeing. The apartment had everything we needed for a four night visit. we loved being able to open the windows to the quiet neighborhood. especially in the morning when the Republican Guard were out exercising the horses. we loved having coffee and listening to the clopping of hooves! The neighborhood was very quiet and felt quite safe. It was such an easy walk from the metro we could come back mid-day to drop off packages and return to sightseeing.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Paris. Thank you so much Julia.

This apartment was clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Traveling with my wife and two teenagers, we found this apartment to be very comfortable. Two bedrooms, one bath, and a kitchen were more than enough for our family of four. The neighborhood was quiet, but had lots to offer. We loved the cafes and bakeries that were within close proximity. The only drawbacks to the property were 1) the batch towels need to be replaced and 2) the wifi is somewhat slow and spotty. However, these two things were minor and we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew, There were some repair works on the fibre optic during the week you were there and that could be the reason for the spottiness since we haven't heard of this problem before. Anyway, am monitoring it. Thanks for telling me. JL

A perfect get-away.

  • 5 of 5

My cousin and I arrived in Paris, in early May, after a fun filled week in London. Julia met us at her wonderful flat in Le Marais and explained the workings of everything (stove top, washer and dryer, wi-fi, television, etc.), spending time with us to be sure we were comfortable with all the appliances. She even got out her larger Metro map and showed us how to arrive at Versailles with the least amount of hassle! The flat was exactly what we expected. Centrally located within easy walking distance to the Bastille Metro station, a leisurely stroll to Ile St. Louis and the Notre Dame. We enjoyed having our morning cafe while watching the Republican Guards exercise their beautiful horses. Once we explored Rue St. Antoine and found all the wonderful patisseries, fromageries and charcuteries, life was indeed complete. Would I stay there again? In a heart beat. Thank you Julia!

Great Paris Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful apartment. Julia was very helpful in getting us settled, with suggestions of activities and advice for riding the metro. The apartment is just a five minute walk to the Bastille metro station and we used it everyday! It is also an easy, leisurely walk along the Seine from the Notre Dame area if you want to take in the sights. There are several restaurants and cafes near the Bastille metro stop. We went out daily to have a morning coffee before stopping at a patisserie for fresh baked goods to bring back to the apartment for breakfast.

The apartment easily accommodated our family of five with children aged 15, 13, 11. They each opted for sleeping a night on the couch but one of the bedrooms has a single bed and double bed which is large enough for sharing. The washer and dryer were greatly appreciated and the apartment was well stocked with kitchen items if you chose to eat in. We were asked to refrain from being loud in the kitchen area in the evenings so as not to disturb the neighbors. This was not a problem though as we were out sight seeing each day and came home ready for sleeping anyway!

A highlight was the Republican Guard barracks which are right outside the window! It was a constant thrill to see the riders coming in, the horses being shoed, and in one instance a beautiful symphony filling the air (for the horses or the guards?!).

We highly recommend this apartment and we would like to thank Julia for her hospitality.

Appartamento in Rue de L'arsenal a Parigi

  • 4 of 5

L'appartamento è in ottima posizione, a due minuti dalla fermata metro di Bastiglia e lungo la Senna.

L'ingresso è curato, si passa in un cortile pieno di fiori che ricorda le vecchie case a cortile.

Le scale per salire all'appartamento sono un po' infelici, vi si riscontra un poco piacevole odore di muffa ( lo stabile è un po' datato ) che per fortuna sparisce in casa.

L'appartamento è carino e ben disposto, i letti sono confortevoli, il bagno è in buono stato e la casa è silenziosa.

Il panorama dalle finestre è un pochino sconfortante, si è sopra a due tetti non molto puliti, ma da un lato c'è la caserma della Gendarmeria a cavallo, dove ogni tanto passano i cavalieri che erano divertenti da guardare.

All'arrivo si viene ricevuti da Julia che è molto disponibile ad illustrare la casa e che al momento del check-out, ci ha fatto lasciare le nostre valigie fino alle 16.00 anche se siamo dovuti uscire prima per permettere la pulizia.

All'arrivo si trova carta igienica e del sapone, che dopo il viaggio sono graditi ;-)

Cosa è mancato per dare la quinta stella ?

La cura delle piccole cose che non costano molto e fanno piacere, come ad esempio:

- una spugna per i piatti nuova ( c'era ma usata ... )

- un tappetino per il bagno senza buchi dovuti all'usura

- una tovaglia per il tavolo pulita o almeno una di ricambio

- delle sedie in cucina senza buchi di sigarette

- un divano che si possa chiamare tale

- un piumino NON singolo inserito nel copri-piumino matrimoniale

L'idea che abbiamo avuto è che la casa sia stata sfruttata al massimo ( cosa legittima del resto )

ma che ora ci sia bisogno di metterci mano per renderla di nuovo confortevole.

Ultima informazione : il Wi-fi funziona benissimo
