About Marion POUPARD

I lived 25 years in Paris in two flats. First, the bigger one with my three children's. The second one, presented here, with the youngest one. I lived three years in this flat. I live now back in my country in middle of France near Tours and Chinon, in my family house.

Marion POUPARD purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Marion POUPARD chose Arsenal

I loved this flat the day i visited it, and bought it the same day.

What makes this apartment unique

I love this historic part of Paris, and the flat is really charming.

17th century building and duplex is really making character.

The Perfect Paris Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

From the first steps of checking availability and inquiring about the rate, Marion was sweet and delightful! Despite challenges on my end with PayPal and the late arrival of our plane, Marion was gracious. She even got us a table at an amazing, but busy neighborhood restaurant!

The apartment is beautiful and large! The location is absolutely perfect! It is in the best part of Paris (Le Marais), but not crammed with tourists and noise. It is across the street from an amazing bakery (Miss Manon) and close to all of my Paris favorites (Ile St. Louis, Notre Dame, the Louvre, Hotel de Ville, etc.).

I have rented many apartments, and despite (almost) all very positive experiences; this one was the best! I anxious to plan another stay!!!

I know in real estate that it is location, location, and location! This apartment's location is excellent. The apartment was functional but small. Marion was very helpful with helping with our stay.

Owner's Response: My 70 meters square duplex with 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms is designed for 2 couples and an young adult. Not for 6 adults. Now I have authorized you to invite a friend of your daughter. That's why you found my apartment too small.

Perfect location in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Marion's apartment in the Marais. You could not ask for a better location with shops and cafes literally right outside your door. There is a cheese shop, boulangerie, butcher and even a large grocery store all on the same block.The St. Paul metro station is a few minutes walk away and the 69 bus stops almost directly in front of the apartment.

If you go with the expectations that the apartment is typical of one in an historic building in the middle of a large city, I don't think you will be disappointed. The apartment was the perfect size for 4 adults. As others have mentioned, there was some street noise from the bedroom facing the street, but it was only really noticeable the first night. The only other critique I might have would be that the apartment would not be suitable for someone with mobility issues as it is up 3 flights narrow of stairs.

We loved our trip, Marion's apartment, and the great location and hopefully it will be available the next time we make our way to Paris.

Lovely apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights, the apartment was comfortable and a great location. Marion was very responsive, and her son met us at the apartment when we arrived to show us around. It was very cold outside but the heat worked fine and it was cozy in the apartment. Good wifi connection, everything you might need in the kitchen, and a computer to use. Marion also left us a bottle of champagne and made us feel welcome. The deposit was returned the same day we left. I'd love to stay here again.

Charming apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a week long stay over Christmas and New Year's in Marion's charming apartment. Marion was great at communicating through email prior to our arrival in Paris. Although she was not able to meet us herself, her son was there and able to show us everything we needed to know about the apartment. She very thoughtfully left a welcome bottle of champagne in the fridge. The kitchen was fully equipped with very nice appliances, plenty of wine glasses, dishes and cooking utensils.

We enjoyed having two floors with a very spacious bedroom and bathroom on the upper floor while our daughter had her own bedroom and bathroom on the main floor. The beds and furnishings were very comfortable.

The location was perfect for exploring the charming streets of the Marais neighborhood, very close to the Place des Voges and a short walk to Ile St. Louis and Ile de Cite. Both the St. Paul Metro and cab service were close by.

The apartment was as charming as described and shown in the photographs. Some visitors might be put off by the early morning noise of the garbage trucks but it was not a deterrent to enjoying our stay at Marion's apartment.

Great Apartment in the Marais!!

  • 5 of 5

My first Paris apartment rental and it was a great experience for a "Girls Trip" to Paris. First off, Marion the owner was always prompt in getting back to us and translated her emails in English very well in our exchanges back and forth. She was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants, transportation, etc. in the months that we were planning. We were very impressed! I sent her many emails all to which she responded quickly. Upon arrival her husband met us at the apartment for a quick tour. He was very friendly and made us feel at home. We were happy that he was willing to meet us that late...we didnt get in until 8pm.

The location of this apartment is great. Approximately 3 blocks from a very convenient Metro station-St. Paul. A fabulous bakery is right across the street. Many restaurants within walking distance, a grocery, meat market, cheese shop, wine shop, etc.

The apartment itself was very cute and in great condition. We loved the old century details with mixed with some modern details. One of the main reasons in booking this apartment was that it had two separate bedrooms. Most Paris apartments for 2-3 people have one bedroom and a pullout. This had two nice bedrooms and a pullout. 2 bathrooms also! European hotels are very small and expensive. You definitely save money renting apartments and have so much more space! Another reason for booking this apartment were for all the good reviews that had been written. A lot of apartments hardly have any reviews posted and they were all very helpful in our decision.

We had one minor problem while we were there. The hot water was out the first day. The owners husband did come out to look at the water situation the next day. Unfortunately, it was never totally fixed and we had to take very quick, luke warm showers for the remainder of the week. Atleast they weren't freezing. But I am still giving it 5 stars for everything else. Overall we had a great experience and I would definitely rent this again or recommend to others. We were very nervous to rent and put out money for an apartment overseas and we had nothing but the best experience. Thanks Marion!!
