Located on one of the most charming squares in Paris- Place Sainte-Catherine. Filled with typical Parisian cafes and restaurants, the square is closed off from traffic and offers a quiet respite from the city.

The square St Catherine is located 1 short block off Rue Saint-Antoine/Rue Rivoli. This is the main thoroughfare through the heart of Paris. This street offers all the shopping you will need, Cheese Shops, Bakeries, Wine Shops, Gourmet Shops and Restaurants, Cafes, Clothing Stores, Perfume Shops, Art Galleries and More !

This street will take you straight to the Louvre and then turns into the Champs Elysees with the famous Arc De Triomphe.

The apartment is steps from Metro St Paul, Line 1, which offers the easiest Access to all of Paris, from the Arc Du Triomphe to the Bastille.

About the size of the average hotel room in Paris, this elegant and historic Studio Apartment, will host up to 2 Guests, with the added benefit of a kitchen. The apartment is a well-designed 15 square meters.

Bright and Classic with Historic Parisian Charm and Sophistication. Just renovated with utmost consideration to every need of the renter, the space is designed to maximize every inch.

The space features historic ceiling beams which are over 300 years old, characteristic of the district, hardwood floors, stone walls, imported Italian tile, antique mirror and chandelier.

The living space features a cafe table with 2 plush chairs near the window for you to enjoy a cafe au lait, looking out on the typical Parisian courtyard. This courtyard also provides a very quiet sleeping environment as there is no street noise.

There is a sofa for use during the day.
The high-end Double-Size 'Murphy' bed is stored away to allow you to enjoy the space. When you wish to use the bed, there is a small lever that allows the bed to come down and the sofa folds automatically underneath. This is a high-quality bed with high-tech hydraulic mechanisms to open and close easily with the touch of a finger.

There is custom-built hand-painted cabinetry throughout which features numerous storage options for your belongings, so you are able to put everything away and enjoy the space.
The cabinets next to the window hold a flat-screen internet-enabled TV and DVD Player, a desk that folds down to offer you a place to work, and drawers to store your belongings.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with a 2 burner glass stove, large sink, stone tile, a microwave/grill, a fridge, and a washer/dryer for your convenience.

The flat screen Internet-Enabled ITV in the living area will let you see what's going on in the world with hundreds of channels in many languages and CNN and BBC in English as well as internet capability so you can check your email and surf the web directly from the TV.
But remember, you didn't come to Paris to care about what's going on in the world. So set it to some digital classical radio instead and sip some wine and nibble some fromage, now that's better.

Car: Not Necessary

Delight in the medieval cobbled streets of Le Marais, a fashionable neighborhood for centuries and bustling with the Parisian Joie De Vivre

The most glamorous private mansions of the royalty and the aristocracy were constructed in the Marais for centuries.

Le Marais is a small triangle of land of about 2 kms on each side going from Place de la République to Place de la Bastille and to Place de l’Hôtel de Ville. It’s not very big at all, but within this small area you’ll find 170 fabulous historical palaces and mansions, two islands on the River Seine, the exquisite Paris City Hall, Carnavalet Palace and Notre Dame. It is an incredible concentration of art, beauty and architectural wonders.

The Place Des Vosges, the Musee Picasso, Musee Pompidou, and Musee Carnavalet are your next door neighbors, not to mention countless art galleries and specialty shops.

Cobblestone Paris Rentals

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Cobblestone Paris Rentals is a small, customer oriented, Vacation Rental Company. It all began in 2004 when Ryan and Jennifer took a vacation to Paris and chose to rent a furnished apartment instead of staying in a hotel. They chose an apartment in the 4th Arrondissement on the charming Rue de Petit Musc, in the amazing Marais quarter of Central Paris. The apartment was in a 350 year old house built for a local 17th Century Parisian nobleman. They stayed on the 4th floor, with no elevator of course, in what was probably the servant quarters. Ryan and Jennifer may have been living like servants, but felt like royalty. They walked the streets of this wonderful city for a week and explored every quiet park, magnificent building, and cobble stone street. Upon returning home to Los Angeles, California, the magic of their Paris memories stayed with them. They dreamed of one day buying an apartment in Paris and moving there permanently. It was only a dream, something for retirement perhaps, but it never left them.

Why Saint Gervais, Paris, France:
One day in 2006, while he was on a business trip to Paris, Jennifer sent Ryan a listing of a studio apartment that she had seen for sale on the internet. To kill some time Ryan made the visit. Without a second thought he made an offer to purchase the apartment that very day. It was an impulse purchase, totally unplanned, and completely influenced by emotion but Ryan and Jennifer never regretted their decision. Studio La Fontaine became the name of the studio apartment that Ryan purchased that day. It was located on an adorable cobblestone square with a small Parisian fountain in the center. From their home in Los Angeles, they began to advertise and rent the apartment to tourists from around the world. Little Studio La Fontaine still makes many Parisian dreams come true. Ryan and Jennifer used their love of Paris and their understanding of North American customer service to create magical Parisian holidays and to help guests experience Paris as locals.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
One at a time, new apartments were added, and Cobblestone Paris Rentals was born. Less than two years from their first trip to Paris, Cobblestone Paris became a full time job and their dream became a reality, and Ryan and Jennifer moved to Paris. Cobblestone hopes to help you have a wonderful holiday by providing you with a lovely apartment, great service, and Parisian memories that will last a lifetime. Bon Voyage and See You in Paris Soon! Merci, Ryan & Jennifer GET READY TO LIVE LIKE A REAL PARISIAN !
