About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, Bath (Sleeps 6)

As featured on House Hunters International episode -- 'Every Little Girl's Dream Comes True in Paris'

Brought to you by Parler Paris Apartments: True to its name, Le Coeur de la Cour (The Heart of the Courtyard) opens onto a stately courtyard in a historic building in a the heart of Le Marais. The apartment is in a portion of the building that was once the carriage-house of this 17th-century “Hôtel Particulier.” This sought-after central Paris location is home to restaurants, galleries and museums.

The apartment is situated on three levels – a ground level living room/dining room/kitchen, a master suite on the upper level and a second bedroom and bath on the lower level -- which provides its occupants with a real sense of privacy.

The ground floor is home to the living room, dining room and spacious kitchen. The kitchen has all of the appliances that you would expect from a luxury apartment, including a full-size refrigerator with freezer, four-burner electric stove, oven, dishwasher, Nespresso machine, coffee maker, and toaster. There is even a wicker picnic basket with glasses for four provided for your outings.

On this side of the apartment the two large windows facing the street are mirrored such that it provides complete privacy from the street, even with the curtains open. Off to one side, in a small space separated by a curtain, are the separate washer and dryer and utility area.

Meals prepared in this well-equipped kitchen will be served at the large oak dining table, which seats at least six. Plates, glasses and cutlery are provided, as is all cookware.

The living room portion of this space has a double sofabed, flat-screen TV with DVD player, iPod dock, large coffee table, bookshelves and serving table and portable air conditioner. The large arched windows on the courtyard side allow plenty of light to enter through the sheers but can easily be closed off with a second silk curtain.

An ancient oak stairway leads up from the living room to the sumptuous master bedroom suite including a powder room with toilet and full bathroom with claw-foot tub, shower and sink. The bathroom is bright, with “Métro-style” white beveled tiles, an oval window and antique Venetian mirrors.

The master bedroom is spacious, with plenty of closet space behind antique louvre doors. The bed is crowned by a hand-made iron canopy. There is a large oak desk in one corner from which you can write your great novel, email your friends or just send postcards. Above the desk is a flat-screen television with DVD player. The room is bathed in light thanks to the windows on both sides, including an arched window that spans the entire length of one wall. A traditional boudoir-inspired “chaise lounge” near the windows is for relaxing, reading, dreaming…or romantic moments. The space is both heated for cozy comfort or in warmer times, air-conditioned for ultimate pleasure. Two guest bathrobes are provided here for your use.

From the living room take the spiral staircase down to the second bedroom with its queen-size bed that can be separated into twins as you like. There is plenty of storage in the mirrored antique armoire and the room is equipped with a small television beside the bed including a DVD player. Here too, there are two guest bathrobes.

There is a full bathroom with large tub en-suite to this room under an arched ceiling, once a wine cellar, hence a lower-scaled entry portal. The arched ceiling is a bit higher than six feet, so may be a small challenge to taller than average people. The bathtub, under the arched ceiling and surrounded by the same beautiful white Métro tile, is rather unique and quite delightful in which to soak and relax.

Included with the apartment is cable television for two of the three TVs, with over 100 channels, WiFi and free telephone with answering machine. Long-distance calls to land lines in over 100 countries are free. This extends to calls to cell phones in France, the US and Canada.

Le Coeur de la Cour is filled with charm and romance and has everything a visitor needs for a perfect stay in the City of Light.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment is beautiful, very well equipped and in a great location. Awesome historic property in the Maria district, close to great shopping, restaurants, Metro and major sites.  It is beautifully renovated with high-end appliances, furniture and fixtures. Wonderful home away from home.  Spacious apartment, especially for Paris and the location.  Management was responsive and helpful. Much better experience than staying at a hotel... will definitely come back.

Perfect pied a terre

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location, in a very cool historic building, is surprisingly quiet and is very well equipped. The upstairs and main floor are quite spacious. The downstairs bathroom does have a very low ceiling, as is pictured. The creperie next door is great with super friendly staff.

Great location and lovely French country kitchen

  • 4 of 5

If you like to feel like a local, and cook in, this is your place! The kitchen is very well equipped and modern. Located in the Bastille area, the shopping and restaurants are wonderful and tourists are not as common as in other areas of the city. The unit has portable air conditioning that is nice in July, but very noisy. The best sleeping is the bedroom in the basement, cool with a humidifier. I loved the bathtubs, but the short shower in the claw-foot tub wasn't so good for my tall husband. Luz was very helpful and spoke perfect English to greet us.

This apartment was in the perfect neighborhood, lots of restaurants and shops right outside our door! The decor was beautiful and the owner thought of everything! If we get lucky enough to come to Paris again, I would definitely stay there again! Loved it!!!

My husband and I chose this apartment for our first trip to Paris (to Europe at all), and could not have been more thrilled. The apartment entry was on the ground level of a courtyard in a historic building in the heart of the Marais. It was a perfect "home base" from which to enjoy the city. Though it was a splurge to reserve such a large apartment for two people, we were so happy with our choice.

Just Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was not our initial booking. We had some problems with our first choice after arriving. The property management company was absolutely wonderful to place us in this beautiful; extremely well equipped apartment. We were a party of six that were very satisfied with this apartment in a most wonderful part of Paris. We felt safe and secure behind a huge gateway door leading to an open courtyard then to our apartment. What a nice place to stay for a week. Close to Metro, supermarkets, stores, BAKARIES, and other wonderful neighborhood locations. Our stay was most enjoyable. Sleeping arrangements were just fine with comfortable beds for all. There were so many amenities that we didn't discover until nearly departure time. I would return again.
