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.

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.

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.
I was born in France, Lyon and I have lived in San Francisco now for 36 years. David and I just got married in July. 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
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.
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. Moon, my Paris contact is the best!
Joelle’s place was perfect for our stay. The apartment is bright, roomy, very comfortable and well appointed. The bed is super comfy, as were the pillows. It is an easy walk up one flight of stairs to the apartment. Once in the apartment, you feel completely at home, almost like you are living in Paris.
The kitchen was well equipped and everything functioned as expected. Joelle has a great binder with information on the apartment and restaurant recommendations.
The neighborhood can’t be beat. The Marais is a great neighborhood. Joelle’s place is close to several major attractions, close to lots of restaurants and some of the best chocolate croissants I’ve ever had!! If you want to feel like you are part of a neighborhood, but not stuck in a super touristy place, Joelle’s place will be perfect for you.
Communication with Joelle was easy and very quick. I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at this apartment.
this apartment was exactly as shown and described. very convenient location, super clean, friendly and helpful contacts, lots and lots of useful information provided, great appliances and conveniences, plenty of space. a real home away from home.
Our one week stay at Joelle's one bedroom apartment in the Marais was perfect. It is centrally located and easy to walk everywhere on the Right and Left Banks. The apartment is comfortable, safe, quiet, and decorated with simple beauty. The bed is excellent for sleeping and the living area is spacious and filled with light. It has everything we needed including a towel warmer in the bathroom! Across the street is a convenience store and Bien, a fabulous health food store, and down the street is Au Pain St. Gilles, an artisan boulangerie, so we were all set for making simple breakfasts and picnic lunches. Joelle was supportive and responsive to our questions as we prepared for our first visit to Paris. It was magical! Au revoir Paris et merci beaucoup, Joelle.
The owner and location is really good, but the apartment has some issues, oven doesn't work (at least for us), also it was not recommended by caretaker when we arrive to use washer/dryer as doesn't do anything more then very small amount..so did not use at all ..public laundromat nearby. A fire occurred in the first floor suite on the 2nd day of a 12 day stay so the street entry door lock was not functioning and left open the rest of our stay along with no hall lights working and smell of smoke in hall. We needed to notify owners about the fire and the lack of street entry security and light issue. Think I would have financially compensated renters for these issues!
Highly recommend. Great location and all the amenities you need. Local contact was very available as well.
My husband and I had the most wonderful 8 days in Paris thanks to this comfortable, well furnished apt. in the most interesting part of Paris. We loved the Marais and would stay here again in a minute. We both commented on how well we slept due in part to the comfort of the bed and the quiet of the neighborhood. Great natural market across the street and
some of the best meals just blocks away. Convenient to all museums, especially the Picasso which we loved. Thank you Joelle for all your advice and we hope to revisit Paris and will definitely choose this apt. for our next stay.
