About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This exquisite 50 m² apartment (2 guests) is located on the 1st floor (French standard no elevator) in a 18th century stone building in the heart of the Marais district. Surprisingly in lively Le Marais, it stays in a small and quiet street where the castle-like edifice of the Archives Nationales makes for a dramatic backdrop.

The apartment, designed by an architect, is fully renovated and decorated in a bright modern style.

The apartment overlooks a large and beautiful private courtyard. The windows are running the length of the flat and bathing every room in natural light. At the far end of the courtyard is a wall planted with moss, ferns and vines.

• One enters the wooden floored apartment through a long hallway, passing the kitchen on the left before moving into the lounge.

• The lounge is spacious and comfortable, with a large leather sofa and chair for relaxing, a large red “hand” armchair, a coffee table and a dining table that comfortably seats 4. A large entertainment center is equipped with a flat screen TV, DVD, and stereo.

• The modern kitchen is fully equipped with a large refrigerator and freezer, microwave and traditional ovens, a two-burner induction range, dishwasher and washing machine and plenty of cooking supplies and dishes for preparing dinner.

• A second hallway leads to the bedroom and bathroom.

• The bedroom sleeps two in comfort with a queen-size bed. One wall of the bedroom is covered with built-in cabinets and drawers for storage.

• The bathroom is newly remodeled as well. It contains the toilet, a large vanity counter with a sink and mirror, a towel warmer, and a shower cabin equipped with a rain-shower overhead nozzle.

The famous Pompidou Centre and the rue de Rivoli are 5 minute walk, the Ile Saint Louis 10 minute walk. The nearest metro stations are nearby at Rambuteau, Arts et Metiers or Hotel de Ville.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 10 mn by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming & restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums...

Great Location, Large airy apartments, need a little fluffing up.

  • 3 of 5

Apartment gets a 10 for location. It is large, roomy and has a number of windows--need to keep the blinds close as the apartments across the court yard look in. Kitchen is large for a rental and fully functional for our needs. Very adequate for 2 people. We had several issues when we arrived; notified the agent about these issues and they were resolved. Unfortunately, this was on Friday and resolved on Monday--no one works on the weekend. We think that if we had problems on Thursday, they would have been fixed on Friday (?). So overall we were satisfied with the apartment. Note the designer, hand chair is not a keeper.

Owner's Response: Hi William, Thanks for your review. The apartment is indeed in a great location, large and airy. Perfect for 2 people! We always do our best to solve problems as quickly as possible when they arise, unfortunately, as you wrote, it was wekeend and we couldn't find an available technician before Monday. During the week we mainly solve problems the same day or at worst the next day. Sorry for this annoyance and hope to host you again in Paris! Sincerely, Jean

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this wonderful apartment for our second stay and enjoyed it as much as we had the first time. We love its location because it's within easy walking distance of the Metro, shops, a nice variety of restaurants, and a number of important sites. The apartment is spacious, very comfortable, and has a nice modern kitchen. We hope to return there for a 3rd visit in the future!

It was a very well placed apart for our needs. Lots of light and a really nice view of the courtyard

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful little fully equipped apartment on a quiet street with easy access to the liveliness of the Marais and available transportation to anywhere in the City. Our stay was for three weeks and there is a palpable sense of community in the neighborhood. The view of the courtyard and hanging gardens add to the abundance of light coming into the apartment. Most importantly was the warm and effective responsiveness of the management - Jean Noel, Jean Nicolas and Karen to any of our concerns when they arose. The apartment is a little more worn than the picture indicates, but in comparison to the benefits above this was for us minor.

Spacious apartment, central location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location - a short walk from Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville, the Pompidou Centre and the metro station Rambuteau. It is light and airy, well equipped and overlooking a central courtyard which is typical of many Parisian apartments. The photos supplied by the owner are an accurate depiction of the interior. We really enjoyed the apartment and the location.
