(scroll right down the main page in the middle to "Links to more information” this is below the reviews, below the map and under Manager info where our Paris Rental Connections logo is listed).

On the edge of the Marais and just next to rue Montorgueil, this spacious apartment is tucked back into the courtyard of a quiet building on a tranquil street in the 2nd Arrondissement. The flat is on the 2nd floor of the courtyard building on Rue Greneta. The result of this is a virtually silent space, free from the street noise of surrounding Paris. This 60 square metre flat is organized to have 2 separate sleeping areas, making it a 2 bedroom flat.

Be sure to scroll down the page and see our360 degree interactive tour. Past location map and just below Manager Info. The interactive tour feels like you are there already!

If you would like to talk to us directly be sure to look up Paris Rental Connections - we are easily found online.

Upon entering, the guest enters into an entry lounge, containing two single beds and a wall of cupboards for storing clothing and luggage. This first room is separated from the double living area by a large sliding door - when open, the spaces are joined to make a large, sunny, loft-like space, and when closed, the entry becomes a quiet separate room for reading or sleeping. We can provide a third single fold out bed here too.

The double living and dining area runs the length of the apartment and is illuminated by a wall of windows on one side. The first lounge area is furnished with a sofabed that is quick to open and has a very thick mattress, two luxurious Napoleon-style armchairs, and TV, DVD, and wireless high-speed internet. The dining area contains an expandable dining table surrounded by comfortable leather dining chairs, and can seat 10 if the desire for hosting a large dinner party takes hold. There is also another seated area with a large leather sofabed making it comfortable to sit in different parts of the apartment to read or chat.

Proceeding through the apartment, the quirky nature of Marais apartments is revealed by a series of doorways and stairs. Many of the apartments in this area are recuperated from several different spaces in very old buildings and thick, crooked walls, myriad steps up and down, and tilting floors are the norm. At right, a winding staircase leads 2 flights down to the 'cave' of the apartment - many Parisians use these underground storage areas to store wine. Back in the main level of the apartment, a step down from the dining area takes you to the kitchen. It is fully equipped with large refrigerator, 4 burner induction range and oven, clothes washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, coffee pot, and more amenities.

The corridor, accessed by a step down from the dining area, leads first to a large bathroom with double sink vanity, toilet, and bathtub, and then to the main bedroom.

The bedroom contains a queen size (160 cm wide) bed and a chest of drawers, and two bedside tables with lamps for those lazy mornings in bed with the papers and a cup of coffee.


The Montorgueil district is centered around rue Montorgueil, a primarily pedestrian street which is a 'rue des commercants' - or shopping street par excellence.

This street is packed with all of the little shops any Parisian (or visitor) could want - greengrocers, butchers, fishmongers, bakeries (including Stohrer, a bakery and patisserie dating from 1730) flower shops, chocolate shops, wine stores, and even a few gelato shops.

The street serves as an artery running from Les Halles park (originally home to the largest central market in Paris but converted in the 1960's to a park and underground shopping mall, complete with cinemas) north to rue Reaumur.

Restaurants and cafes abound, as well as the scores of boutiques in the surrounding streets. The area has in recent years become a haven for young designers and this is evident in the small boutiques scattered throughout, but the larger clothing stores still remain as well, centered around rue Etienne Marcel, which runs toward Place des Victoires, a 5 minute walk away. The Louvre museum can easily be reached on foot.

An often missed treasure just across the street from the apartment is the Passage des Grands Cerfs, one of Paris's many enclosed passages - glass-roofed passageways lined with shops and boutiques. True to the neighbourhood, this passage contains several funky clothing stores, a restaurant, and a few galleries and furniture stores.

Closest metros are Reaumur Sebastopol and Etienne Marcel, line 4 and 3.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was superb for the needs of our family of four with two adult children. It's centrally located in a lively neighborhood near metro stops, restaurants and shopping. My criteria for choosing a property was location, CLEANLINESS, comfortable beds/linens, spacious updated bathroom and ample living space with decent furniture. This property met all those needs and more with extra amenities...lots of fluffy towels, hairdryers, toiletries, shopping carts, detergent, soaps, kitchen linens, paper products won't lack for anything. The property is in an interior courtyard and away from street noise. The kitchen is small. We only used it for breakfast, snacks and drinks, but it was equipped with all the major cooking utenils. I personally would not want to do any major cooking in it, but a kitchen was not a priority for us. A terrific reasonable priced restaurant we recommend is Les Philosophes also listed in the property handbook provided.

Elodie and her staff were very responsive in booking the property and excellent instructions are provided for coordinating your arrival. This was our first time booking abroad with homeaway and we hit the jackpot!!!

Nice comfortable renovated apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and found the apartment comfortable with amenities we were looking for. The unit is close to a subway station, and right above the ground floor on a quiet street. There is a market area a block away which is a plus. The unit has many windows that can be opened and we found it spacious for us. We very much enjoyed our stay there.

Review of Rue de Greneta- great location & apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is ideally located apartment on a quiet street. We were able to walk everywhere in Paris from here. Great restaurants and food shops nearby. The apartment is clean and comfortably slept the 5 of us (2 adults; three kids under 12). Paul was very helpful in showing us how everything worked. We choose to eat out a lot as we were only there for 4 days so didn't really use the kitchen but it looked well equipped. Would recommend this place to friends and we would use it again.

Great apartment & location

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, along with two teenagers, stayed in the apartment for a week and found it to be perfect. The location is close to the Metro but also walking distance to many attractions. There are shops and restaurants in the area which are convenient. Because of the courtyard setting and as it is on a side street, there is very little noise. The apartment is well appointed and plenty of space for all. Overall, would very much recommend it.

ottima sistemazione e zona sicura anche di notte e comodissima per RER e metro

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso 5 giorni nell'appartamento in 7 (3 adulti, 2 nonne e 2 bambini di 7 e 4 anni). Siamo stati accolti benissimo ed abbiamo trovato l'appartamento in ottimo stato e ben attrezzato. Ogni mattina facevamo colazione con i deliziosi croissants che si possono comprare in varie boulangeries in rue Montorgueil (4-5 minuti a piedi). A piedi si possono raggiungere monumenti e quartieri molto piacevoli e vivibili anche in tarda serata senza alcun problema di sicurezza. La vicinanza con la linea RER (Chatelet) rende l'appartamento fruibile anche da chi voglia raggiungere comodamente l'aeroporto Beauvais (linea diretta fino a Porte Maillot da cui partono i bus per l'aeroporto) ed anche Disneyland, raggiungibile in circa 40 minuti senza cambiare mezzi di trasporto. Torneremo sicuramente!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments! I've translated them into englishbelow: "excellent accommodation and safe area even at night and convenient for metro and RER ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We spent 5 days in the apartment in 7 (3 adults, two grandmothers and two children aged 7 and 4 years). We were greeted very well and we found the apartment in good condition and well equipped. Every morning we had breakfast with delicious croissants that you can buy in various boulangeries on rue Montorgueil (4-5 minute walk). On foot you can reach the monuments and neighborhoods very pleasant and livable even in the late evening without any safety concerns. The proximity to the RER (Chatelet) makes the apartment accessible even by those who want to reach the airport Beauvais (direct line to Porte Maillot from where buses depart for the airport) and even Disneyland, which is about 40 minutes without changing means of transport. We will definitely be back! Reviewer location in La Spezia, Italy Date of arrival August 31, 2015"

Excellent Space in an Excellent Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Paris 9 days, a family of four with two teenage girls. We had an excellent time, and the property at 34 Rue Greneta was a key part of that. We loved the location - there were three metro stations in easy walking distance (less than 5 minute walk). A full size Monoprix was next to the closest metro station, which was very handy. A short walk to Rue Montorgueil with a number of good cafes, a couple of U Express stores, and markets.

The flat is up 2 flights of narrow winding stairs. You could probably sleep 8 comfortably, however with only one bathroom, you would need to be good schedulers. The dining table sat 6. Kitchen was perfect for our use as we ate breakfasts in, as well as a causal dinner or two. Washing machine was handy for a couple of mid trip loads (laundry detergent was provided).

The building is nice and quiet, and even though there is no a/c, our flat stayed cool even through some hot days. Reservations were easy. We were met at the flat and given a complete walk through. The flat had high speed wifi and a phone for local and international calling.

We left the flat pretty much as we found it and were promptly refunded our deposit. We would definitely stay here again, and wouldn't hesitate to rent other properties from the same manager.
