HI! I AM 52 AND HAVE BEEN LIVING IN THE MARAIS DISTRICT OF PARIS FOR THE PAST .... 43 YEARS. AFTER LIVING HERE 'FULL TIME' FOR TEN YEARS, MY HUSBAND AND I NOW SPLIT OUR TIME BETWEEN PARIS AND OUR COUNTRYSIDE HOUSE. THAT'S WHY WE HAVE DECIDED TO SHARE THIS PLACE WE ADORE WITH VISITORS.
Brigitte purchased this Apartment in 1960
Why Brigitte chose Les Archives
THE MARAIS DISTRICT IS A CHARMING TYPICAL AND VERY LIVELY PLACE, WALKING DISTANCE FROM MOST MONUMENTS AND MUSEUMS. JUST IDEALLY LOCATED FOR TOURISTS. ALTHOUGH RECENTLY RENOVATED, WE HAVE ON PURPOSE DECIDED TO KEEP ANTIQUE FURNITURE FROM MY GRAND PARENTS WEDDING IN THE EARLY 30'S, AS WEEL AS ANCIENT TILES AND WALLPAPERS WE LIKE. WE REALLY ENJOY SHARING THE PLACE WITH VISITORS, HOPING THEY CAN FEEL AT HOME, JUST LIKE REAL PARISIANS.

Home in the Marais
Very comfortable, terrific part of the Marais, wonderful owner.
Great condo in the heart of Marais
The most equipped condo we have ever stayed at. This is the owners home and they kindly make it accessible to the visiting tourist with the accouterments to make the visit both comfortable and convenient. Brigette took time upon entering condo to explain how everything works and to welcome us to her home and area. She had many good suggestions for restaurants in the area. There were kitchen condiments and essentials for making meals at home and easy access to restaurants, grocery stores or the Bastille market (Sunday/Thursday) to either eat out or bring a treat home. The home furnishings were comfortable and made the stay very relaxing. Best location in that we walked to Notre Dame, Pompidou, the Louve and even made it to Eiffel Tower though bit of trek and caught the Metro back to condo. Brigette was an excellent landlord in that she even called a cab for us on the day of departure.
The post dated damage deposit was of minor concern to us initially but Brigette did a brief walk through on our departure day and promptly gave us back our check.
Extremely pleased with condo and accommodated we 4 adults easily and can't say enough positives about the location and the well equipped condo. I mean, it even had a juicer, cheese grinder, coffee/tea maker and wide assortment of teas and coffees, etc. we feel very fortunate to have rented Brigitte's home.
What a beautiful treasure in the heart of Marais! Would stay again. Brigitte is lovely and helpful
What a beautiful treasure of an apartment, in the heart of a beautiful area of Marais. Brigitte responds to any questions or concerns very quickly. The deposit is a safe way to ensure that the apartment remains in its state of decor, and upon inspection after our stay we received it back. Everything was perfect and we hope to return! We fit our three young kids easily, and they loved it as well. Brigitte made sure to give caution to the slippery wax floors in the apartment, and I’m glad she did. They are very slippery with socks on:) Because the next portion of our trip was in Belgium, Brigitte set up the taxi ride for us. Notre Dame was an easy ten minute walk, and there are so many great shops and restaurants nearby. Thank you, Brigitte! Kindly, the Neal Family
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. Brigitte's a perfect hostess. She's friendly, responsive and helpful -- sharing tips on the space and providing information on the neighborhood and Paris in general. Her home is quiet and comfortable. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
Large beautiful clean with everything you need to feel right at home.
Super host! Fantastic apartment in a great neighbourhood! We loved our stay here from the moment we arrived. Brigitte was there to meet us and show us around the fabulous apartment. Very comfortable beds and quiet at night. Lots of great shopping as soon as you stepped out the front door. Detailed instructions on how to get everywhere and a list of all the best restaurants. Brigitte arranged for a taxi when we left and was there for our early morning departure. We would definitely stay here again.
Convenient, comfortable and considerate
Brigitte's apartment in the heart of Paris' Marais district could not have been more suitable for our two couples staying for three nights. Brigitte not only explained everything thoroughly upon our arrival, and gave use of all appliances, she had wonderful maps, guidebooks and suggestions for us which proved very helpful for our visit and enjoyment. Hers was the only place of six we stayed all around France that had fans for cooling on the 90 degree days- so nice! The apartment's mix of old and new was wonderful. The location is near the Seine which made for a short walk home each night after our stroll along the river, is near a couple different Metro stations which made it easy to visit all parts of the city, and was quiet at night (save the floorboards when someone had to "go" in the middle of the night :) Finally, Brigitte made arrangements for our taxi to the airport, which was greatly appreciated. Merci Beaucoup for everything! Until next time...
