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.

Why Carole chose Saint Gervais

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 in the living room, and a bathroom accessible from the hallway, the apartment accommodates 2 to 4 guests.

Just the best apartment in Paris (oops, don't tell anyone though)

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great apartment in my favorite area - La Marais! The sofa bed is very comfortable as is the bedroom bed. The beds are both standard size full beds, not queen beds, just for clarification. It was perfect for my granddaughter and I to each have our own beds.

Carole, arranged for a driver to pick up us from the airport and take us to the apartment and then drive us back to the airport. I highly recommend this. Usually I don't do this, but this was such a treat.

The kitchen is great! We didn't do a lot of "cooking" but it was great for our breakfast and then we made salads at night.

Bring some type of slipper for walking on the living room matting, as it is a little tough on bare feet. That is my only "complaint."

The neighborhood is a hopping neighborhood, but it gets quiet at night. It was very warm while we were there and there is an air conditioner and fans, that helped a lot.

We loved how secure our apartment was. We felt very safe. The elevator is tiny but it worked wonderfully well on those nights that we had walked 15 miles and just couldn't bear walking up the stairs.

Thanks Carole for making my granddaughter's first trip to Paris so enjoyable. You were awesome to work with!

Merci beaucoup -

A wonderful apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Saint Gervais was a wonderful apartment, well-equipped, clean and in the best location – the Marais. The pull-out sofa in the large, attractive living room was totally comfortable – even for an adult. The only negative was that the beautiful large windows in the living room opened onto a quaint street that, at night, was very busy with people enjoying the vast array of nightlife. It could be noisy. The bedroom was good-sized and overlooking the inner courtyard, consequently, very quiet. The A/C is a portable and worked well in the living room. I’m not sure how well it would cool the separate bedroom. The neighborhood was our favorite part. So many cafés, bakeries and high-end shops. There were many major sights within walking distance and great history all around! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt safe and comfortable. We would happily return.

Safe, comfortable & convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family really appreciated the several levels of security for the building. All the necessary amenities were there. Having a washing machine was convenient so we could enjoy fresh towels as often as we wanted. The neighborhood was lively and charming! Would do it all again.

The perfect Paris apartment

  • 5 of 5

If you want a true Paris experience, Carole's apartment is perfect. The Rue Vielle du Temple is a wonderful street with lovely shops, a great bakery and near everything. My husband and I never took metro in our five days. We walked everywhere. Ten minutes from the Place des Vosges, ten minutes from the left bank, longer to explore other arrondisements, but always walkable. The apartment itself has a beautifully decorated living room and quiet bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped although we only eat breakfast in our apartments when we travel. I always like to give honest reviews to help travelers. The bed is more of a double than a queen so if you are a couple who need a larger bed, this is not for you. My husband and I were fine because we sometimes sleep in a double bed. The mattress is thin, but was comfortable enough for us, but again, it might not suit everyone. We would stay in this apartment again and if the bed is not a problem, I can recommend it with no hesitation.

Perfectly located

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was spacious for a one bedroom. The location and set up can’t be beat. Carole was easy to deal with and accommodated our early arrival with grace and efficiency. I would definitely stay there again.
