What a beautiful and perfectly located home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience staying at this property! It is both beautiful and conveniently located to so much within walking distance and a very short walk to the Metro. The property is located very close to everything while still being incredibly quiet and relaxing. The apartment itself has everything you would ever need. We fully recommend this property!

Quiet, well appointed apartment in great location in The Marais.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 9 nights in this perfectly located apartment about 2 blocks from the Place de Voges.

Recently and perfectly remodeled with handsome cabinetry, appliances, and excellent bedding, it was just right for 2 of us as a hotel alternative. Enjoyed the owners' choice of art work, reading materials, classic and comfortable furniture as well as large windows that provided great air circulation in both summer heat and rain. Being right off St Catherine's Square, 2 blocks from the St Paul Metro and minutes from many cheese, wine, chocolate shops as well as the Monoprix...easy access to all of Paris and great neighborhood food and dining! Thanks to Frank, the manager, who met us there with ice water drinks, and cheered us on once we got our bags up the three flights of well worn wood stairs. He also arranged for a driver to pick us up for our flight home, gave us a few hints and instructions and was easily available if we had needed him. A first class experience!

Truly a jewel in the heart of the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment from June 26 to July 4, 2017. We loved every minute.

The apartment is well described in the description and other reviews. The overall building and courtyards are charming and historic. The stairs were not a problem, and we are seniors. The apartment itself is very well appointed and styled. The bed was so comfy that we didn't want to get up and out in the mornings. And the sheets were so comfortable that when I got home I found my own sheets lacking. The apartment is full of light from the multiple full windows, with great cross ventilation. We loved the bathroom and kitchen--very modern and complete. The capsule coffee maker resulted me in buying a nespresso machine when I got home. And--to say more--the neighborhood was so friendly with 6 cafes and 3 restaurants within a 2 minute walk. Grocery and specialty stores were within 2 to 3 blocks, as was the Metro Station. Frank, the manager, introduced us to the apartment and we were set to live there. We will always remember this incredible stay.

Charming, comfortable and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the "Quite Jewel" was a delight. The apartment's bath and kitchen have recently been renovated and both are well designed and well equipped. The decor is mostly mid-century modern with interesting art. This is a very special retreat in the center of Marais. There are cafe's, bakeries, all sorts of food stores and other establishments in the immediate neighborhood. Frank Meagher, the manager, was tremendously helpful when my husband and I arrived. He is an American and so could explain everything to us in English, including how the appliances worked, where to shop and best bets for sight-seeing. Highly recommended!

Truly a jewel ...

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is one of those places you like so much, you want to keep it a secret. From the moment you step foot into the courtyard to the moment you fall asleep in the amazingly comfortable king size bed, you'll be thinking to yourself how glad you were you picked this apartment. The kitchen is well laid out, with everything you need to cook. There is a drawer that is filled with 'knick knack' traveler needs, ensuring you don't have to worry about forgetting that adapter, or cable, or needing tape, etc. The bedroom is quite large, very comfortable, and has plenty of space for your clothing. I already mentioned the comfortable bed. The other room has a TV, but for us it was a wonderful place to lounge, relax, read, and enjoy the sun streaming in. Finally, the bathroom is very modern, clean, and well laid out.

In addition to the apartment itself, you can not beat the location. Shops, cafes, restaurants, a Metro station and Place des Voges are all just a short distance away. Place Saint Catherine is literally out your door.

We loved staying at this apartment, and look forward to returning for another stay as soon as possible!

Car: not necessary

Rue de Jarente is in the heart of the Marais, the old Jewish Quarter, 30 steps from St. Catherine Square, one block from Place des Vosges, and one block from St. Paul Metro and Rue Rivoli, where there are wine, cheese and flower shops, fruit stands, bakeries, cafes, grocery stores, pharmacies and banks. Of course, it's also in the heart of Paris!
