About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The Marais Central apartment is located in one of Paris’ most charming locations on the Rue de Bretagne and footsteps from the Marché des Enfants Rouges. Some of Paris’ finest cafés and restaurants, as well as the beautiful Place des Vosges are within minutes walk of the apartment in the heart of the historic Marais district.

The whole apartment has been redone from carpet to ceiling with new amenities, including a portable A/C unit. It perfectly combines the classic Parisian charm of high ceilings and exposed beam architecture with the comfort and style of modern furnishings and amenities.

On entering the living room, one is instantly struck by the immense light from the two large French windows, which give a real bright and airy feeling to the room.

Traditional beams teamed with superb wooden flooring give a real warmth and comfort to the room and one instantly feels at home here. The creams, browns and greys of the furnishings appear truly beautiful against the exquisite wooden flooring. This room contains everything from cable television to DVD player as well as an Ipod dock and the large and oh-so-cozy sofa converts into a double bed for extra guests.

The apartment is a third French floor (= three flights of stairs) and the building has NO elevator.

The kitchen is open and is a pure delight to cook in. With the large markets at your doorstep full of fresh and exotic produce, you will very much enjoy cooking up that perfect French cuisine in this gem of a kitchen.

The bedroom is very inviting indeed. Decorated in warm tones and soft lighting, it is a perfect haven for a great night’s sleep. Overlooking a pretty little garden, this is a superb room for relaxing in.

The bathroom has been beautifully designed and the utmost care and attention to detail has been taken with this room. The room is very bright and contains a large shower cabinet, lavatory and sink.

This really is a gem of an apartment, enjoying space and light, full amenities and the charm of the pretty Marais district. An unforgettable stay in Paris is certainly guaranteed here!

Please note this is a fourth US floor, there is no elevator. The apartment is 37 square meters.

About The Owner


We are Fabrice and Julie and this is our only rental apartment in Paris.

We hope that you will find everything you need for a great stay in Paris.

Come visit us!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Paris Arr. 3 (Marais, Picasso Museum)

This area of Paris is very central, chic and arty. The High Marais is the ideal alternative for a wild shopping spree that includes contemporary art galleries, boutiques and restaurants. All this, within walking distance from major sites... (Place des Vosges, the River Seine, Notre Dame, Pompidou...)

A home in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Marais Central apartment. The pastel decor and lots of windows made the place airy and bright - exactly as depicted on the website. The apartment is well-equipped. The compact kitchen includes all you need for preparing simple meals at home - if you don't choose one of the great local restaurants. (And the local markets - butcher, boulangerie, cheese shop, traiteurs, vegetable stands all make shopping for meals a delight.)

The apartment is in a great location - several convenient Metro stations, lots of local restaurants, and easy walking distance to so much of Paris!

And the booklet that Julie and Fabrice supplied was very helpful.

We can definitely recommend a stay in their Marais apartment!

Quiet and Quaint Apartment in Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

This was the first trip to Paris for my fiancé and I. We were recommended this apartment through one of our friends and it did not disappoint. Julie was very responsive with questions regarding our flight in and even offered to arrange a taxi pick up for us if we needed. We took the super shuttle, however, the offer alone was very accommodating. Upon arrival, we were also greeted with a nice note and a bag of chocolates from the wonderful chocolate store (next door).

The apartment is in a very cute part of the 3rd Ard and right next to a local market, which we went to a few times during our stay. My fiancé and I are very active and adventurous so we did a lot of walking from the apartment. It was about an hour walk to the Eifel tower, which we enjoyed. For those not interested in long walks, the apartment is only a few blocks away from two different metro lines. Regardless, it is very accessible to anywhere you will want to go in Paris.

The apartment fit our needs well for the size and location. If you are looking for more of a hotel experience than this lovely place is probably not for you as you will need to tread lightly early in the morning and in the evening. It is very important to keep the volume to a minimum and not disturb the neighbors. However, if you would like living like a Parisian in a charming apartment than you will love this place!

Wonderful, central apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place.

The Marais is a fabulous place to explore with lots of little streets and alleyways and there is a market right beside the apartment! There is a grocery store a couple of doors away and a pharmacy and an ATM. There are plenty of little restaurants around and places to explore. Everything we needed was in the apartment which was clean and bright - and there were notes suggesting restaurants and places to visit. It was easy to walk to a lot of the museums and churches and there was public transit across the road. We are saving our money to go back and wouldn't stay anywhere else!

The apartment is exactly as described. We had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Julie was very responsive and helpful. We did have a problem with the internet being out the last 2 or 3 days - it was a problem with the provider and Julie went to every effort to fix it. Unfortunately we were without internet at the flat during that time so I would just plan accordingly(we had contacted Verizon and had enabled international connection with 3G on my phone ahead). Also we did have to go buy some body wash. I neglected to bring enough and there were absolutely no extra toiletries in the flat (not like a hotel). Overall it's a great neighborhood and flat and we would definitely stay there again.

Marais apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great location. It was very clean and tidy and had a lovely Parisian feel. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. You ould walk everywhere or catch the metro tbat was located near by. We chose to walk as you see so much more by just taking different side streets you discover something new every time.
