About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This beautiful one-bedroom (50 sq meters - 540 sq feet) is in the historic Marais district : the address is Rue Vieille du Temple, a stone throw from Rue des Francs Bourgeois. With its 17th century beamed ceilings, it is indeed typical of the area.

The apartment is located on the second french floor with elevator (third floor US).

The furnishing and amenities are good quality, in a tasteful contemporary parisian style, with clean lines and a controlled use of color.

The living room enjoys a particularly bright and airy feel, thanks to the very high ceilings and tall twin window bays (street facing, with double glazing).

The bedroom is perfectly peaceful, thanks to a courtyard orientation.

The kitchen is equipped with all you would need for cooking (hob, extractor, dish washer, microwave, all dishes and utensils, etc.)

The bathroom is well designed and has a shower cabinet and wash basin.

This apartment has all that one would hope for in terms of brightness, peace and quiet, comfort, modern amenities and style.

About Carole

Hi, my name is Carole. I own this apartment with my husband.

We would be glad to have you as a guest and we hope you enjoy your stay in Paris.

Warm regards

Carole purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Carole chose Paris Arr. 4 (Marais, Hotel de Ville)

The area is very central, lively and has a delightful Parisian village-like atmosphere. The historic Marais is perhaps the most popular choice for Paris vacations. The wonderful patina of the historic 17th-century buildings is sharply enhanced by the designs and colors of as many forward-looking boutiques. Cafés, restaurants and museums abound. Living here, you'll have everything within immediate walking distance and won't have to use public transport.

What makes this apartment unique

This elegant one-bedroom of 50sq meters (540 sq feet) located on the 2nd french floor (3rd floor US) with elevator offers a stylish and spacious living room with high ceilings that retain their 17th-century beams. The large living room windows open onto a typically charming Marais sidestreet with fashionable boutiques and restaurants just around the corner. The courtyard-facing bedroom is perfectly quiet, so you’re sure to sleep well. With double sleeper sofa and a single sleeper sofa, and a bathroom accessible from the hallway, the apartment accommodates 2 to 4 guests.

Great location. All of Paris is outside your door.

  • 4 of 5

Many buildings in the center of Paris do not have an elevator or provided as much space as this Parisian apartment. The apartment does a good job of keeping original historic charm with modern conveniences.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay. Wi-Fi was great. Modern kitchen and bathroom accommodating. Large den with very comfortable large pull out. Bedroom also very comfortable. All bedding/pillows provided were comfortable. Apt was exactly as seen and just as nice in person. Not too far from Metro but, a little walk. Nice street with high end shops in close proximity. Getting in was easy. No problems departing. Apt has a lift. Neighborhood and building felt very safe. Portable A/C unit worked well when needed.Would suggest to friends or stay again. Communication with owner was prompt and easy.

Excellent location and services

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the communication prior to our arrival. The location of the flat was ideal. A short walk to groceries, the metro, shopping and restaurants. The apartment was very clean and we had all we needed.

Great apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Carole's apartment for 6 nights. We are a family of 4 and found that the apartment suited our needs perfectly. We really enjoyed setting out on foot everyday and took advantage of the local bakeries, shops and restaurants. The apartment's furnishings were just as described. Would not hesitate to return or to recommend.

great apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The area and especially the street, Vieille du Temple, is well-located in the Marais with a number of restaurants, bistros and cafés nearby. The market just up the street has closed, so it’s necessary to go about 500 meters down rue des Francs Bougeois, which becomes rue Rambuteau after a block, to find a Francprix market which has about everything you could want. There is another at the St. Paul metro stop. It’s much easier to get to and closer than the Monoprix. There isn’t a Tabac close by, but several within a few hundred meters. The street can be noisy in the evenings and on weekends if you aren’t part of the party. For baguettes and croissants, there is an eco-friendly bakery a couple of hundred meters down on this street in the direction of traffic flow. There is another, quite large, boulangerie to the right down rue du Roi de Sicile at the market place.

The apartment has a spacious, charming living area with a sofa bed with a comfortable mattress. The bedroom is small, but adequate since people will normally be in there only to sleep. There is a nice TV. The only English language stations seem to be cable news outlets. Again, not much concern since I wasn’t here to watch TV. The property manager, Carole, is pleasant and very helpful – even when asked things which are in the extensive instruction book. You should pay attention to that, by the way. Some of the appliances have culturally-specific operational instructions which can be baffling to an American. Be aware that the washing machine takes about 3 to 4 hours to complete the shortest cycle when drying is part of it. The capacity is also quite small. The air conditioning is a portable machine with an exhaust duct which has to be placed in an open window. It does a fine job of cooling the apartment even in 90+ degree weather. Be aware that this apartment (like all the others I’ve stayed in in Paris) has thin walls. Noise carries.

Great location, clean and modern apartment

  • 4 of 5

The location was great for us, and the apartment was clean and modern. I have stayed in units that were bigger but had not been updated in over a century and had many plumbing issues. The only issue was that the unit above had a lot of family members over one night and the noise came through the ceiling.
