Located in the Marais, one block from the Place des Vosges and two minutes from Picasso museum, this lovely vacation apartment is sure to become your home-away-from-home in Paris. Set on the second floor of a very quiet and charming 17th century building, it is reached easily by one wide flight of stairs.
The apartment shows the highest standard for quality and comfort. It will charm you with designer furniture and touches of traditional French antiques. Splashes of dramatic color pleasantly energize the décor and the newly refinished wood floors shine. Gracious and thoughtful amenities are included throughout. An airy and sunny 520 square feet of space, beautifully renovated and furnished.
The living room has three large French windows facing a courtyard. There is a Ligne Roset sofa which easily becomes a comfortable bed for two. Two easy chairs and an ottoman accent the room's color scheme and modern design. Beautiful, sleek lamps give plenty of light for reading and other activities. Cable TV, stereo and CD player are conveniently located for use in the room. Wireless internet throughout.
The bedroom also has a large French window which faces the courtyard. The Ligne Roset bed is queen-sized with a padded headboard (perfect for reading in bed) and a firm mattress. Linens are 100% cotton and the pillows and comforter are extremely comfortable. The walk-in closet provides plenty of storage space.
The kitchen is large and has an antique table with matching chairs. New countertops, cabinets, ceramic sink and sage green floor tiles create a wonderful environment for cooking and eating. Fully equipped, the kitchen includes a dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker.
The bathroom has a glassed-in shower and bathtub. A towel warmer, hairdryer and plenty of space for your things add convenience to this room.
This wonderful apartment is ideally located on rue Saint Gilles, one block from Place des Vosges in the heart of The Marais, this is the Paris so often see idealized in films and on postcards. The Place des Vosges, the oldest and one of the most beautiful squares in Paris, is a favorite of Parisians and tourists alike - a place to relax, stroll and take in the beauty of the city.
The Marais and nearby Place de la Bastille is home to some of the most important figures and events in Parisian history. Victor Hugo made his home at number 6 Place des Vosges and Balzac and Dumas resided in le Marais. The Picasso Museum, nearby at the Hotel Sale, is home to the world’s most significant collection of his work. The Musée Carnavalet on rue de Sévigné is one of the most interesting of Paris museums. It illustrates the history and development of Paris up to the present.
The bustling nightlife of the Marais is vibrant with its restaurants, club scene, concerts, cafés, and jazz bars. Less than a 10-minute walk will take you to the year-round program of opera and ballet at The Opera Bastille.
You can easily walk to Centre Georges Pompidou, Le Louvre, Forum des Halles, Notre-Dame, and many other Parisian landmarks.
Every Thursday and Saturday morning, there is the large outdoor market on Boulevard Richard Lenoir and a well-stocked, small supermarket, G20, has opened on rue Saint Gilles. Within the neighborhood are many wonderful specialty food shops and bakeries.
Métro Lines: About one block from Métro: Chemin Vert (line 8). About 5 minute walk to Métro: Bastille (lines 1/8/5) or Métro: St Paul (line 1).
We have agents in Paris available to solve any emergencies should they arise.

About Joelle Dussuyer
I was born in France, Lyon and I have lived in San Francisco now for 37 years. It has been a pleasure hosting so many nice guests through out the last many years. We are looking forward to have you too! :)
Joelle Dussuyer purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Joelle Dussuyer chose Les Archives
It is simply the most hip area of Paris, yet full of history, good restaurants and attractive shops. It's centrally located, walking distance to many of Paris' greatest museums and landmarks, and easily accessible by metro. Simply the best area in town.
What makes this Apartment unique
Designed for American tourists by a French native who has lived in the States for 36 years. I had you in mind. The apartment is very quiet, very comfortable, clean and beautiful. The tub has a regular shower in it (something that you don't always get in Paris). The bed is so comfortable that I bought one for my own place in San Francisco. I've had several renters tell me that it is the best bed they have ever slept in. Florence and Sol, my Paris contacts are the best!

Lovely flat in the Marais
Lovely, clean, small flat in a great neighborhood. Perfect size for our family of 3. Fold-out couch is comfortable for sleeping. Joelle and Florence were super helpful. We'd stay here again!
Well kept. Perfectly situated.
Very comfortable and accommodating property in prime Marais location.
Lovely apartment, perfectly located
The experience was parfait. The apartment has everything you need to live like a Marais local, cook from the Bastille market, and stroll to the Place des Vosges -- one of Paris' best public squares. Can't recommend the host, management and cleaning service highly enough.
Lovely spot - lovely host
This is a lovely spot in Le Marais and we had a gorgeous time. Joelle is endlessly kind and helpful - we were really grateful and most impressed by the range of suggestions for things to do, places to eat, and tips for getting around. It made everything so much easier for us. Thankyou Joelle for your warmth and care, we really appreciated it.
Délicieux, comme toujours
We have officially lost track of the number of times we have stayed in this lovely apartment so it always feels like home when we visit Paris. Hosted our 21 year-old niece for her first visit to Paris here. Perfect! Comfortable - great amenities - superb location - responsive owner and host. Remercie Joelle et Florence
We spent a week here absolutely loved what a gorgeous little apartment in a quiet street & building.
Amazing location we walked to most places very central.
Apartment was beautifully presented & appointed I can honestly say we wanted for nothing.
Loved having a grocery store literally over the road & a patisserie 25m down the road.
I would highly recommend this apartment the owner was a pleasure to deal with.
Supermarket and food shops including organic food market across the street, Opera, Ballet, Galleries and Museums, Historic Sites
