Why Kathy Nardiello chose Paris

Our apartment is ideally located in the heart of Le Marais, it is a 10 minute walk from the 'Hotel de Ville' metro station (line 1) and a 5 minute walk from the 'Rambuteau' metro station (line 11).

The Marais offers an abundance of important museums, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes in a true Parisian neighborhood setting. The Picasso Museum, The Pompidou Center, Place des Vosges, Carnavalet, Notre Dame and Hotel De Ville are only a short walk away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our little apartment as a base for our Paris travels. The owners have made a small space so incredibly useful and inviting and have thought of everything you could possibly need.

There were four of us, and our children loved the adventure of pulling their bed from the wall every night in the living area, while the parents escaped to the main bedroom.

The apartment was both light and cosy and stocked with books, movies and a fully working kitchenette and laundryspace. There was also two outdoor spaces for relaxing and dining.

Central to all things Paris, we set off every morning - just a short walk to the Metro, and past may local playgrounds, eateries and markets. We really did have the world at our feet.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience in this apartment. It was clean and neat. It had all the necessities: stove, fridge, french press, etc. I loved the terrance the most it was so relaxing. The apartment was super close to the Pompidou and metro. We also walked to Hotel de Ville and Notre Dame from apartment. The bathroom was fully stocked if any essentials were forgotten and plenty of towels/washcloths (which is usually rare in Paris). My friend and I each brought our daughters. The murphy bed was perfect. We had plenty of room as well as sofa and dining table. Only downside was only 1 key so when we separated for the day we had to determine who was going to return first for access to apartment. Otherwise absolutely wonderful stay.

Compact apartment with all amenities and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

My parents, daughter and niece recently stayed in this apartment conveniently located in one of the nicest areas in Paris.

Due to its great location, you will have no issues getting around to visiting all parts of Paris. Le Centre Pompidou is only minutes away (by foot) and you can also do local visits as well by foot (Le Marais, Hotel de Ville, Musee Picasso, Notre Dame, Saint Michel, Les Halles, etc.).

The apartment itself is compact but you will find everything need here. All modern appliances are at your disposal. The apartment is tastefully modern and the small outdoor area is nice for winding down in the evening. The air condition unit is a rarity in Paris as well, so the apartment promises comfort despite its size.

It was a pleasure contacting the landowner under such short notice. She was truly understanding and very hospitable. For those looking for a centrally located apartment which is tastefully done, look no further.

Amazing Apartment in the heart of the Marais district in Paris!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the good fortune of being able to stay at La Terrasse Du Marais for a week as part of an extended vacation in Europe this summer. We were a little apprehensive to spend an entire week in Paris since we don't speak French. Even our greeter, who was fantastic with explanations of how the apartment worked and gave us great suggestions for grocery stores and cafes, jokingly said that maybe we should have considered going to Paris, Texas. All of our apprehension was quickly put to rest as the residents and shopkeepers of the Marais district were wonderful and helpful, even if we could only smile and say "bon jour" when we first arrived.

The apartment was amazing and has all the basic essentials plus more. The bed is very comfortable and it was great to have air conditioning to cool the apartment down after a day of site-seeing. The bathroom is large and the rain shower was a nice added touch and nice hotel quality towels. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and a larger refrigerator than we found at other places in Europe. The owners have even provided guide books to help with researching local attractions. The apartment felt very spacious for the two of us with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy compared to staying in a small hotel room. We did not experience any problems with noise from surrounding apartments as older reviews mentioned.

The location of the apartment was perfect for us! We enjoy walking and thoroughly enjoyed our walks through the historic Marais district. Most days we would walk a couple of blocks to Rue de Bretagne that had amazing cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries and fruit markets. We even walked from the apartment for most of our site-seeing excursions: Notre Dame (1 mile), Musee de Louvre (1 mile), Sacre' Coeur (2 miles), Arc de Triomphe (2 miles) and Eiffel Tower (3 miles) plus all the shops along the Seine and museums in between. The apartment is also just a short (5-10 min) walk to two different Metro stops for easy access for day trips to the Palace of Versailles and Disneyland Paris.

The owners were quick to respond with questions and provided us with all the information for accessing the apartment, meeting the greeting and instruction for the apartment.

We would highly recommend the La Terrasse Du Marais apartment to friends and family and would definitely stay here again on our next vacation to Paris!

Cute and cozy apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in an awesome location - the Marais. So many restaurants and shops nearby. The vibe of the neighborhood is wonderful. Everything you need is provided in the apartment and we really enjoyed the extra towels, blankets and pillows. It was cozy (we have 2 teenaged boys) but we knew that when we booked it and took advantage of the patio when we had our one meal at home. A wonderful vacation!

Well maintained property with all amenities but too small for a family

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained and has all the amenities you may want. All areas are functional.

But it is too small. I mean too small. There is not enough storage room. No real place to store your suitcases. They are always in the way.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review & your stay! It's true that this is a small Parisian apartment so there is not a lot of extra space. It is tight for 4 people to stay but has as much space as a typical Parisian hotel room with a lot more amenities & a kitchen! We have really tried to use all the space we do have efficiently. There is a shelf in the hallway to the bathroom where you can stack your suitcases & we also have 2 folding tables where you can place your luggage. For storage space, there is 1 side of the armoire in the bedroom for hanging items, it has drawers, and basket that rolls out for shoes. There is also more storage in 4 cabinets in the living room around the murphy bed. The space of the apartment can be seen in our pictures. Again, many thanks for your stay!

Delight in the medieval cobbled streets of The Marais, a fashionable neighborhood for centuries and bustling with the Parisian Joie De Vivre.

The most glamorous private mansions of the royalty and the aristocracy were constructed in the Marais for centuries.

This apartment is designed for you to enjoy Paris as a resident.

Le Marais is a small triangle of land of about 2 kms on each side going from Place de la République to Place de la Bastille and to Place de l’Hôtel de Ville. You’ll be able to explore 170 fabulous historical palaces and mansions, two islands on the River Seine, the exquisite Paris City Hall, Carnavalet Palace and Notre Dame Cathedral. It is an incredible concentration of art, beauty and architectural wonders.

There is simply no better neighborhood in all of Paris! It is charming, eclectic, vibrant, and historic. You will fall in love with it as you realize that you are now where everyone in Paris wishes they could be.
