Overview

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 Michael

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.

Michael purchased this apartment in 2013

Location. Surrounded by museums, incredible food, fashion boutiques, and quintessential old-world charm.

Cozy and Stylish Marais Apartment with Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four lovely nights in Paris in this wonderfully located and adorable apartment. Michael was a gracious host providing unique area tips, coffee, and a delicious bottle of wine. As a bonus, as our flight arrived early in the morning, he arranged for us to drop our bags in the apartment prior to the scheduled check in period so we could explore Paris.

The apartment is well appointed with a beautiful mix of old-world charm and modern fixtures and appliances. We enjoyed the convenience of the location and loved walking back to the our apartment each day feeling as if we were going to our new Paris home.

This is the best apartment & location in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here during our travels to Paris and London, and are so grateful we chose this apartment. It was absolutely beautiful *as pictured*, and very comfortable! There are many details that may not be clear in the photos, but add to the comfort and ease of the apartment! It is in the interior of the building so it is nice and quiet, allowing for a good nights rest while also adjusting to time zone changes. :) The bed is super comfortable, there is AC and heat for additional comfort. And I can't leave out the LOCATION! It is in such an adorable area that is convenient to so many wonderful shops, cafes, the Seine, etc. We really liked that it is not located in a major tourist area like near the Eiffel Tower - so you can avoid major crowds if you like. Michael and his colleague were both so helpful and hospitable. We are from the US and speak very little French, so it was wonderful that they speak English and could easily communicate with us. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Paris!

Great apartment

Michael's apartment is lovely; very modern, great shower, a lift and AC for warm days, and very little noise on a very busy street. Thanks for your excellent communication!

This was exactly what I wanted in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

A gem of a space! This charming apartment is perfectly situated on a great street in the Marais, close to the metro, restaurants, shops and food markets. It is cozy and comfortable (sofa bed is great!) and so well appointed with everything we needed: from coffee, tea and Madeleines to start the day to a lovely bottle of wine to wrap up the evening. There was even makeup remover in the bathroom! Michael's colleague Suzanne met us and gave us a great orientation to the apartment and Michael touched base during our stay with an offer to arrange our car to the airport. If and when I return to Paris, this is definitely where I will be staying!

Charming though tiny apt in fabulous locale

  • 4 of 5

Immaculately clean, attractively furnished, great location, very comfortable bed, lovely shower, nice to have washer/dryer, helpful host - but smaller than photos suggest, definitely not adequate for 4 despite sofa bed, mini-kitchen unsuitable for any cooking other than AM coffee (no counter/work space or food storage at all). Good fridge but inaccessible microwave (on top of fridge - cannot be reached easily), no actual oven, 2-burner cooktop. However, you aren't there to cook - go to local bistros, especially Les Philosophes around the corner. Overall, would recommend to couples seeking fun experience and real Parisian atmosphere.

Great modern apartment in Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment for 5 nights. Michael was extremely accommodating for our arrival and departure which made the process and check-in/check-out very easy. The apartment is very clean and modern - all kitchen and bath appliances are new and modern. The apartment sits on a street right in the heart of Le Marais, with shops and restaurants right outside your doorstep. 2 main metro stops are a short walk by and many things are within a 10 minute walk such as Notre Dame and Pompidou. Would highly recommend.

Map

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.
