About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Located in the heart of the charming and fashionable Marais neighborhood (4th arrondissement) in the center of Paris, this fully renovated and beautifully maintained apartment possesses the perfect balance of historic beauty combined with high-tech modern conveniences: from ultra high-speed fiber optic WIFI Internet, to a state-of-the-art Miele clothes washer and dryer. Ideal for couples, individuals, or a couple of friends who want to spend the perfect holiday in an authentically Parisian apartment without sacrificing any modern comforts, this apartment is a luxurious and incredibly comfortable haven in the heart of one of the most desirable and safe neighborhoods to be in. Located on the 3rd floor (2nd by European standards) with an elevator right to the door of the apartment, this apartment looks onto two beautiful and quiet courtyards making it a particularly peaceful haven. Foodies will fall in love with the array of eateries surrounding the apartment and some of the best restaurants in the city, and those with a taste for fashion will find themselves in the middle of a seemingly unending labyrinth of designer boutiques mixed among high fashion shops and art galleries.

LOCATION: As a resident of a centuries-old building on a beautiful winding granite cobbled street, which even by Parisian high standards is considered a particularly beautiful and charming street, you will have museums, art galleries, incredible food and the latest in fashion at your doorstep. It is also just steps away from the beautiful Place des Vosges, numerous museums, parks and the river quays for romantic walks along the Seine. Additionally, the shops and restaurants in this neighborhood have the unique distinction of being open on Sundays, a rarity in Paris, which gives you the convenience of having everything you need available to you 7 days a week. The neighborhood is so popular on Sundays that the streets are closed off to cars and the area becomes a pedestrian zone for the day.

SLEEPING: Fall asleep on the highest quality mattress and crisp white pressed linens on a 160cm x 200cm bed (larger than a US queen size bed) that ensures very restful nights in the bedroom. Additionally, the sofabed in the living room amazes guests with its comfortable and incredibly firm full-size mattress that is 160cm x 200cm (also larger than a US queen size bed). The glass wall between the living room and bedroom has a black-out curtain that slides across for privacy or to keep the bedroom dark for someone who likes to sleep late while others enjoy the living room. The large windows fill the apartment with natural light year-round, while the black-out shades on all the windows allow you to sleep late or go to bed early if you need to transition to the time change; this is particularly useful in the summer when it can be light out until as late as 11:00pm!

* 2 guests are asked to use 1 bed. If 2 guests would like to use separate beds, please indicate 3 guests when making the booking.

EATING: A white stone counter top and white glass cabinets conceal a full service kitchen that is ideal for picking up food at local markets and at nearby bakeries, cheese, chocolate and wine shops and enjoying in the apartment. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, oven-microwave, cook-top, and built-in aeration hood and lighting. A short walk from one of the biggest open-air food markets in Paris at the nearby Bastille, foodies will find themselves in culinary heaven with both internationally lauded haute-cuisine, as well as up and coming restaurants and bistrots surrounding the apartment.

About Christophe

I fell in love with this property because of its incredible location in the heart of the city on a beautifully picturesque street, combined with the historic charm of the surrounding Marais neighborhood (with its famous food and fashion boutiques and museums). Add to that the fact that there is an elevator (only 1 in 200 buildings in this historic area have elevators) and that it has sweeping views over the city, this is truly a special place.

Christophe purchased this apartment in 2013

Modern with old French charm

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a place! My husband and I decided to spend Spring break in Paris. As many have noted, Michael was incredibly responsive from the beginning to the end. The location is in the middle of old Le Marais area with wonderful restaurants, bakeries, butcher shops, chocolate shops, quirky shops and museums. You can't pick a better location. Although you can take the Metro from St. Paul station to anywhere in Paris, we walked to many locations- easily achieved daily 10k steps on our Fitbits!

The apartment was very clean , functional and was great for the two of us. You can tell a lot of attention had gone into preparing a place for renters like us including welcoming touches like a bottle of wine, cookies, tea and coffee.

We had a wonderful time spending early spring in Paris. As with last time in Paris, we left with fond memories. Thank you!

As described - and more

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful first visit to Paris! The location and comfort of this apartment made it an ideal home base for exploring Paris and experiencing Marais. Easy walks or a quick Metro ride to Paris sights, and so many shops, cafes, and restaurants within a few blocks in the surrounding neighborhood. And Michael is one of the most responsive hosts I have dealt with - from the initial reservations, to information sent in advance of arrival and departure, accommodating our delayed arrival time, and helping us quickly problem solve a minor wifi issue. Hope it's available to rent on a return trip to Paris.

This apartment was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! It was clean, comfortable and beautiful. It has all the amenities you need! The location is wonderful! Less than 5 minutes to the metro and located on a quaint cobblestone street in the middle of a delightful neighborhood. Really close to markets and restaurants. Christopher was great to work with. We will book this property again next time we are in Paris!

Exactly as promised

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in the Marais is beautifully situated, on a wonderful medieval street, close to the metro. It is just as promised and as described and previously reviewed. Our host Michael was very attentive and responsive. It is no coincidence that it has 88 star reviews.

In the midst of the bustling Marais, a lovely, quiet oasis!

  • 5 of 5

The owner has designed an architectural gem. This apartment checks all the boxes: Elevator, central A/C, high-end appliances, washer AND separate clothes dryer, (for guests staying longer than a couple days), comfortable bed, rain shower, etc., etc. It’s located in a family-friendly building & neighborhood, with convenient walking access to the Metro and many, many restaurants and bars.

Additional comments: This apartment has a small footprint. It was the perfect size for my wife and me, but might be a little tight for a family of four, although the couch makes into a full- sized bed. Secondly, typical of most all of the Paris apartments we have stayed in over the years, the lift is the size of an extremely small broom closet. Finally, the public hallways are in need of a new paint job. But the apartment itself is newly renovated and is an A+ facility.

Exactly as advertised and perfect for two.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as pictured and worked out perfectly for two. It provides an authentic way to experience Paris and a great alternative to a hotel. It is on a great street and very convenient to the Metro and many local attractions. We walked to dinner every night and had great evenings walking on the Seine (which is only a few blocks away). The apartment was well stocked with coffee, and Michael was very accommodating and responsive to questions we had.

Car: not necessary

The apartment is located in the heart of the city, in the Marais, which is the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris (the street the apartment is on was created in the 1100s and is one of the most beautiful in the city, paved in granite, and lined with 19th century street lamps). The surrounding area is full of restaurants, art galleries, and high-fashion shopping. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum (the museum of the history of Paris), the beautiful place des Vosges, Notre Dame Cathedral, and numerous others. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk from the apartment to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern automated Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes right through the heart of the city directly to numerous monuments and sites, such as the Musée du Louvre and Arc de Triomphe.
