About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
The apartment is up only one flight of stairs and has been decorated and furnished with great taste and style by its interior designer owner The main salon features beautifully refinished hardwood floors, a traditional fireplace with mantle, and authentic beamed ceilings. There is a zinc-topped dining table with comfortable seating for six on the opposite side of the salon from the fireplace. A double-sized day bed faces the fireplace and television screen. The apartment is also equipped with wireless internet, a CD player, a safe, and an ice machine.
The owners have opened a rare outdoor atrium up in the center of the apartment which allows guests to enjoy their morning coffee or an evening cocktail under the Paris sky with a view of the Paris rooftops. This atrium allows for an incredible amount of light in the apartment and is accessed off of the 2nd bedroom and kitchen. Such outdoor space is very unusual in the center of Paris!!
The accommodation comprises a large living room and open kitchen, a master bedroom with a comfy King size bed and adjacent shower bath room and a second bedroom. This second bedroom has a trundle bed (single bed, also with a pull-out single bed), and its own bathroom with bathtub.
The kitchen window and both bedrooms and the bathroom (with bathtub) look out over a central atrium with fountain. The atrium cannot be accessed, but provides additional light to all rooms around it and is quite charming! It is filled with boxwoods and a fun antique wood birdhouse with a 1700 French style mansard roof which can be viewed from the kitchen window.
Amenities include an air-cooling system, Wi-Fi/Internet, stereo, flat screen TV, washing machine and dryer, and two French heated towel racks. The telephone provides for free US and Canadian calls for both cell and home lines, in addition to home numbers in France and Europe. The only charges are for local cell calls. Access to the apartment is by a secure entrance with code and up just one flight of stairs.
Ideal for families with infants (under 1 year) and/or children over the age of 5.
Everyone has a different reason for loving Paris, and this apartment on the Rue de Turenne will be the perfect addition to your list. Situated in the heart of the Marais, there are numerous sightseeing opportunities with a 3-min walk to Place des Vosges and the home of Victor Hugo; 5 mins to Picasso Museum; 10 mins to Place de la Bastille, Jewish Museum, Hotel de Ville; and Beaubourg Center; 15 mins to Opera Bastille; Louvre Museum, Saint Louis, Ile de la Cite; and Carnavalot Museum.
Also, a 5-min walk east takes you to many of the trendiest little shopping streets in Paris, among them the cutting edge shops of the Rue des Francs-Bourgeois.
The variety of restaurants is amazing. There are many small and intimate, lots of trendy and fun, and one of the only 5-star Michelene restaurants is located in Place de Vosges just around the corner. A 3-min walk north brings you to one of the finest street markets for antiques and gourmet foods. A 10-min walk south and you're standing at Notre Dame Cathedral on the Seine. On Rue Rambuteau, all the food that brings us to Paris can be found in a single block--a boulanger artisanal for bread and pastries, traiteurs for those amazing sausages and pates, one of the few remaining poissoniers still going strong for fresh fish and oysters, a great wine shop, and a chocolaterie for a little love of the confectionary kind.
Extra services include: Possible extra maid service. This includes reasonable laundry. The maid is compensated directly. Also, a stocked fridge, cook service, airport transfer, baby bed, and cell phone.
When requesting information from outside of the United States, please include the COUNTRY OF ORIGIN and DIRECT DIAL INFORMATION.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
Visiting Paris was a dream come true and the VRBO bear and his bear friend were not disappointed with this magnificent apartment located in the heart of wonderful Marias! There were two quant bistros located just below the apartment making it very convenient for a night cap. The numerous windows allowed for a great breeze and people watching on the street below. The location could not have been better! It was an easy 5 minute walk to St. Paul subway station and the bus stop was right outside our door. After a full day of sightseeing it was refreshing only having to walk up one flight of stairs. The apartment is beautifully decorated and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything these bears needed. David, the property manager was very friendly, helpful and gave great insight that made our stay comfortable and highly enjoyable! Shopping, restaurants, wine shops and transportation were conveniently located nearby. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this charming and lovely apartment next time you are in Paris!The VRBO Bear

Year Purchased: 2010
About: This apartment was bought and decorated by Holly Howard, although run by Kylie Mimitz, her reservation manager. Holly had worked as an interior decorator for many years in the US as well as Europe. She loved opening her home to others get receive the true Parisian experience for all guests. The apartment is now owned by her brother, Wesley Peltzer, who enjoys the same love to travel and explore the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The cafes and bright awnings give a gay Parisian flare to this corner location. I find it delightful, in fact, to open the living room windows and not only bask in the amazing French light, but watch the French regalia of horses and riders that parade by on most French holidays. The three apartment balcony windows also provide a front row seat for all the “goings on” in the plaza below. It’s quite amusing and fun!
