Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This 17th century apartment has all the features of the perfect Paris getaway – massive original oak beams, red tile 'tomette' floors dotted with Persian carpets, antique French furnishings and comfortable beds wrapped in luxurious high thread count linens. In the living room, there is a beautiful 19th century tapestry on the wall of the lady and unicorn. The kitchen has new rich brown polished granite counter tops.

We have just completed a brand new bathroom renovation, all new paint job and all new energy efficient silent heating system! It's GLEAMING!

The large living room opens into the renovated kitchen and dining area, easily seating eight guests around a large antique dining room table.

The sofa opens into a queen sized bed. There are two bedrooms and two baths.

--The larger bedroom, with a queen bed, is off the living room and offers an en-suite bathroom with full size tub/shower, washer and dryer.

--The second smaller bedroom is a SEPARATE APARTMENT, just adjacent to the main apartment, on the same landing, and there are no other apartments on this floor. It is ideal for the guest who wants full privacy (OLDER CHILDREN ONLY - OVER 16, visitors, etc). In this bedroom, there is a double bed (140cm) , two skylights and a full bathroom, and its own WIFI and air conditioning central system.

Note: this is a small bedroom, so not ideal for two large adults, perfect for one adult or two teenagers/younger children.

The neighborhood? Wonderful! Easy walk to Ile St Louis, Bastille, Places Des Vosges and Notre Dame. Nearest Metros are Bastille, Sully Morland and Saint Paul.

The services we offer? Wonderful!

--FULL CONCIERGE services are included at no additional charge. Our staff meets you AT the apartment when you arrive, and your personal concierge is available 24/7 should you have any questions.

--We also can arrange for our PRIVATE CHAUFFEUR to pick you up at the airport (90E/one way/6 guests) - he meets you right at customs, and then delivers you to the apartment as he coordinates the arrival of your concierge at the same time.

Why do I love this apartment?

-- It’s authentic, beautiful, bright, and very very quiet.

-- It's luxuriously furnished, really lovely.

-- It's in a great neighborhood, surrounded by museums, monuments, restaurants, unusual shops and the even more important BAKERIES!

-- It has a great layout - the second private bedroom and bath are perfect for the guests or kids or in-laws that need their own space, yet are still under your wing.

Who is the perfect guest for this apartment?

-- A couple looking for a romantic week in the heart of Paris;

-- A family (up to 6) who wants a cost effective alternative to a hotel;

-- A family with OLDER children who would love to have their own space, leaving the larger apartment and bedroom to the parents.

-- A party of three where the third person is not sharing the big bed with the other two... (ok, I'll stop here....)

What makes this apartment unique

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE DEFINITELY RESERVING: THE FLOOR PLAN IS UNIQUE AS FOLLOWS:

THE SECOND BEDROOM IS ACTUALLY A SECOND APARTMENT - ON THE SAME FLOOR, ADJACENT TO THE MAIN APARTMENT, AND THERE'S NO ONE ELSE ON THE FLOOR.

IT IS SMALL (ABOUT 10M2): WITH A DOUBLE BED, (140CM), AND FULL BATH, HEAT/AIR, WIFI AND TWO SKYLIGHTS. IT HAS ITS OWN LOCKING DOOR. IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR A CHILD UNDER 15. IT IS BEST FOR GRANDMA, AU PAIR, OLDER TEENAGER, PRIVATE CHEF, OR FELLOW TRAVELING THIRD PARTY!! THANKS.

Elegance and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

The Marais is a delightful area of Paris. And, in the heart of this area is a charming apartment; elegant, well appointed and very comfortable. That, in and of itself would be sufficient. But, there is much more. From the time I first inquired about the apartment to the moment we moved out, every detail was attended to. Efficiency and courtesy seem to be the motto of the owner. The crowning touch was having the expert, gracious assistance of Mathias. Staying at this remarkable apartment added something special to our stay in my favourite city!

Comfortable flat in great area

  • 5 of 5

Fun flat very close to Metro lines and walking distance to many great sites, restaurants, bakeries. That this is a real residential neighborhood made us feel we were actually living in Paris. We are family of four (two adults and two teens) and were able to fit well. Having a washer and dryer in the apt was a huge bonus. Service was great.

Lovely apartment, great location, wonderful support staff

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the main apartment and added room for 5 days. The location is great, less than 5 minutes from metro and walkable to shops, restaurants, and Seine.

The apartment is just as pictured. We comfortably had 4 adults and two children with the extra room. Beds were quite comfortable, air conditioning and washer dryer worked great. Note: The stairs to the room are somewhat narrow (as we were told beforehand) but our 70 year old parents are able to navigate them fine.

We were met at the airport and the room and had access to a concierge via phone whenever needed.

All in all our trip was fantastic and the accommodations were ideal. We were sad to leave and would absolutely return in the future!!

Perfect Paris Get Away

  • 5 of 5

For our first stay in Paris, we didn't want to stay in a hotel room that looked like a room in any city in the world, we wanted Paris flavor. And boy, did we get it at the Sarte! It was beautiful, clean, and well appointed. The lay-out was perfect for us since our sister-in-law had her own little private area and we were able to come together in the main area when we wanted. We were met immediately by our adorable concierge who got us settled, gave us the lay of the land, and shared tips to help us navigate the next three days. We were lucky to arrive Sunday morning when the Bastille farmers market (right around the corner) was in full swing - well worth it to pick up fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses as well as other goodies. Le Temp des Cherises and L'ENOYECA were two of the restaurants we loved and easily walked to. And the bakery on the corner - don't get me started! Although the apartment wasn't near some of the sites we wanted to see, we found the bus very easy to navigate and we were able to get anywhere we wanted to go. And coming back to our little piece of Paris heaven after being out all day was the icing on our Paris vacation cake.

When we come back, we will definitely be checking with Jim for our next perfect Paris get-away.

Charming and Exquisite

  • 5 of 5

A delightful place overall. The place was beautifully decorated and you felt you were truly in Paris while there. The apartment was walking distance (just a few blocks) away from 3 metro/train stations, restaurants, and grocery stores. A boulangerie which we frequented almost every day for our croissants or baquettes was on the same block. As soon as we booked, the owner sent us a multipage guide on the place (eg, how to use the washer/dryer, how to use the phone, places to eat). This was extremely helpful. We printed it out and took with us, but you didn't need to, as they had this in a folder on the dining room table for you when you arrived. They also sent us emails about where locals like to eat. Mathais, the concierge, who met us the day we arrived, was also very helpful and friendly. Added bonus - you can make calls back to the US for free from the phone in the room. Really, just a gem of a place and we'd stay again in a heartbeat. We were worried that the 2nd bedroom was going to be too small, but it wasn't, and it provided for a completely private room (and bath).
