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....)

About Jim

The smile tells it all. I love doing this. And, if we are careful, and always place the right guest in the right apartment, then 99% of the time our guests are extraordinarily happy, and that makes me happy.

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.

20 rue de la cerisaie

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our four days in this apartment. The main apartment was charming and well equipped for our four adult guests. The additional second bedroom was fine for a couple. Our concierge, Marc was exceptional -- he arranged for a driver to meet us, as we kept our car outside the city. His choice of a Louvre guide worked well. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the City of Lights.

Quiet central location and excellent concierge

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in the Marais. Nicely furnished with a comfortable bed. It is very quiet. Marc, the concierge, could not have been more helpful- he set up a driver to pick us up from the train and to take us to CDG at the end of our stay. We described the type or restaurant we enjoyed (small, good food and wine and within a half hour walk)and he gave us excellent recommendations and made the reservations for us. If I am lucky enough to stay there again I would not bring such a heavy suitcase as it's up two flights of narrow wooden stairs. My daughter stayed second bedroom which is quite small.She is 5' 4" and she said it would not be good for a tall person.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the 5 STARS! and positive feedback, and I've relayed your message to Marc our wonderful concierge. This is precisely why I talk to every guest when they make a final reservation - I'm glad we talked about the floor plan and smaller second bedroom before so it wasn't a surprise! And regarding those stairs, as charming as they are (original and restored 17th century!), our concierges are always there on arrival to help our guests carry their bags. Once again, thanks and we hope to see you again soon! Warm regards, Jim

Owner's Response: We are so sorry for the technical issues. It's not an excuse - but getting tech support for plumbing and air con is nothing like the states - it takes weeks to get them to respond especially in August when everyone is on vacation ! Still we are sorry and next visit one night is on us as our guest! Best regards. Jim

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!
