About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + sofa bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This spacious and elegant property is a 70 m2 (approximately 720 ft2) apartment, on the 3rd floor (with elevator) of a traditional Parisian building, protected with a coded door and buzzer. It is situated in the heart of the Haut Marais, right behind the newly renovated “Carreau du Temple”. It is a very short walking distance (approx. 10 minutes) from the Picasso Museum and the Pompidou Center, and approximately 15 minutes from Place des Vosges. For the exact location, please see the map.

There is a direct bus (96) taking you to Notre Dame, Saint Germain des Près and the Left Bank, the bus stop being 3 minutes away, and direct metro taking you to the Opera (Temple station 2 minutes away). A second bus (75), opposite the metro station, also takes you directly to Pont Neuf and the Louvre. A block further, you can get anywhere in the city from République station, a major intersection of metro lines and buses. The Rue de Bretagne right round the corner is a market street, hosting the city's oldest covered market, the 'Marché des Enfants Rouges', open every day except Sunday afternoon and Monday. All the hip bars and restaurants are around you, and the trendy rue Charlot with its young designers’ boutiques and vintage fashion shops is literally 3 blocks away! The farthest you will need to walk to get anywhere in the Marais will be 15 minutes.

The apartment is composed of a double living room, 2 bedrooms (one master with double bed and one smaller with two single beds that can be put side to side to make a king), a bathroom with bathtub, a kitchen and a walk-in closet. It's a beautiful, sunny apartment, with hardwood and old tile floors, as well as double glazed windows and individual gas heating and hot water. The master bedroom is very large and has an independent built-in long desk and two full height windows facing south, overlooking a beautiful brick school which is in retreat from the road. The living room has 2 windows in the same orientation as the master bedroom and another one opposite, a decorative fireplace and many old wooden details. The smaller bedroom has hardwood floors and 2 large windows overlooking a quiet side street (dead end). The apartment is equipped with large refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, stove, oven/microwave, espresso machine, kettle and toaster. High-speed internet connection with WiFi, cable TV and phone for unlimited local and international (for selected destinations) calls are all included in the price.

You will be greeted personally to exchange keys and receive explanations how everything works. I will always be at your disposal to give you advice and information about the city, and help you out should you need anything.

Please contact me directly for availability, as I do not use the VRBO calendar
Thank you!

In the heart of the hip and trendy Haut Marais, surrounded by restaurants and cafés, art galleries and young designer's boutiques, the apartment is on a quiet side street and is an oasis of tranquility, a stone's throw away from all the action. A park with playground a block away makes it ideal for families with young children. Transportation is ideal, with Temple station 2 minutes away and République station, a major node where 5 lines cross, another 2'. Many attractions like the Pompidou center and Picasso museum are within a 10' walk.

The Lighthouse is ideally located for a memorable parisian stay!
