Property description

Everyone is talking about “le Haut Marais” in Paris – the center of creativity and style and home to Paris Fashion Week four times a year. This area of central Paris has taken off during the last decade with artists & galleries, boutique shopping for just about anything, great local restaurants and 18th century mansions & the most interesting small museums.
This flat is located on the quiet part of rue Charlot, yet steps away from rue de Bretagne which is the center of the neighborhood. All the the best boutiques, galleries and restaurants are located around this center point.

Recently renovated to the highest standards, the apartment has been designed for maximum comfort and relaxation. The look is modern and open with special touches including the old exposed beams, beautiful solid oak parquet floors and antique wooden doors.

You will be met by our professional concierge who will explain everything about the apartment to ensure you have everything you need throughout your stay.
The elevator will take you and your luggage to the 2nd floor with ease. As you enter the apartment you look across the open kitchen and on to the spacious living room on your left.
Behind the fully equipped “cook’s kitchen” is the dining room which can be used as a second bedroom - there is room to create a double bed or two single beds. A child's bed is also tucked in the corner. This room can be closed off completely with it's solid sliding door.
The open plan means that light permeates the space.
The main bedroom has a new queen sized bed and adjoining bathroom with walk-in Italian tiled shower and double sinks. There is plenty of closet space and drawers to unpack your things.

Solid double paned windows means a quiet night’s sleep. You’ll wake up refreshed and ready to discover the endless charm of Paris again.

If you like to cook, you won’t be able to resist our fully equipped kitchen to prepare dinner, especially after visiting the Marché des Enfants Rouges and the multiple artisanal food shops on rue Charlot and rue de Bretagne. It's impossible to pass the cheese shop on the corner without picking something amazing to eat with a good French baguette & bottle of wine! There are five quality “cavistes” within 2 minutes of our apartment, all happy to host you for wine tasting and to recommend exactly the right bottle for your meal.
If you prefer to dine out, we’ve left you reviews lovingly compiled over the years on a range of amazing restaurants in the area as well as all over Paris.

The Marais is one of the oldest areas of the city and is full of historical sites and architecture. It is a very safe at all hours and has the added advantage of shops being open on Sundays which is rare in Paris. Only a 4 minute walk from the Picasso Museum, a must see. The newly renovated Carreau de Temple is just around the corner and a center for art, music, theatre and food events which is all part of the great entertainment in the neighborhood.
Be sure to visit the Marché des Enfants Rouges. It’s the oldest covered market in Paris and has a large selection of vendors selling organic fruits and vegetables, wines, fish, meats, pastries, and delicious cuisine from around the world. There are also ten open air restaurants in the market offering cuisine from around the world.

We are in the heart of the fashion and design district with many independent boutiques, vintage shops and well known houses. The best people watching in the world happens in January, March, June and September when the fashion world takes over the Haut Marais for Fashion Week.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: An English and American family, we moved to Paris 14 years ago and have never regretted it. Our work takes us frequently out of the country as well as our latest project, a country home near Avignon. We are in love with this fascinating, beautiful city and so happy to share it with you during your stay in our home.

Why the Owner Chose Enfants-Rouges, Paris, France:
This was the first apartment that we rented when we moved to Paris in 2002 and luckily the owners offered to sell it to us. Since then, we have seen rue Charlot transform into the best place to be in Paris. While just a few minutes walk from many top tourist destinations, our area retains a village atmosphere where Parisians from all over the city come to hang out on the weekends.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
There are so many things to do as you are right in the center of Paris. Our typical weekend is go the markets, shop the boutiques, people watch at the cafes and then cook up an amazing meal for friends. Do not leave Paris without having a crepe at the Marché des Enfants Rouges next door!
