About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

When you arrive, the beds will be made and you will find enough to muster a first diner from the cupboards and the fridge ...where you will also find a bottle of wine.

This XVIIIth century apartment has kept all its charm (high ceilings, beams) while providing all the modern amenities (endless hot water supply etc...).

The living room is generous, with a nice view on a beautiful tree across the street, and a dining nook where you can unfold a table for a 8 people sit-down diner.

The two bedrooms give on to a quiet interior garden/courtyard

The kitchen is well equipped to prepare real diners

In the bathroom there are 2 sinks and a bath where you can also take a shower

Delightful apartment in the best location in Paris, le Marais is a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Visited Paris with my husband and three grown up sons so needed a good size apartment. Sophie's apartment lived up to expectations, plenty of living space, well equipped kitchen (although we ate out), two doubles, a single (smallish bed for my 6'3" son) and a double sofa bed. Lots of linen, towels etc.

The apartment looks over the courtyard so other than the early morning rubbish collection was peaceful. Great location for restaurants, cafes, local boulangerie for the essential croissant run and plenty of local shops.

We loved le Marais, walked everywhere but local Metro was so close Bastille, Chemin Vert and other lines.

A great find, excellent communication from Sophie and the very helpful Karim who met us. Added bonus we could leave our bags too as we had a late departure.

Would recommend for anyone happy to really live like a local in Paris for a few days.

One thing to be aware of is that many shops and restaurants close for part of August, we liked the tranquility but it did mean some local restaurants weren't open.

Perfect location. Great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was as described. Clean, safe and the perfect size for our family of 5. Every morning we went to the local boulangerie and bought fresh baguettes for breakfast. Many good restaurants and shops in the area. Highly recommend this place.

Very comfortable with a tranquil courtyard

  • 4 of 5

Great location and the courtyard is just as pictured and so lovely to come back to on a warm day. This was our first Homeaway stay and we felt like we really belonged in the 4 days we were there. We struggled with the washing machine instructions - some pointers in English would be great but got there in the end. There was a cocktail function at the gallery directly opposite in our first night and it was lovely to hear the hum of voices and laughter coming up through the open window. The bedrooms are at the back so the noise is no issue. Storage was good and beds were cosy.

A Very Merry French Christmas

  • 4 of 5

Spent almost a month in this lovely Marais apartment. Many period architectural details, including 18th century windows and original wood beam ceilings. Very spacious for a Parisian apt. Bathroom is roomie enough for two ladies getting ready for a fancy night out. Kitchen has all the basics. I did have to add a set of champagne glasses, and I did have to get creative working with what was available in the kitchen when making a roasted Chapon for Christmas dinner, but it was fantastic in the end. The apt is very conveniently located just a short walk to the Bastille metro station. The Marais neighborhood has always been my favorite and it's one of Paris' loveliest. Many amazing restaurants and cocktails bars frequented by the locals. Best shopping in Paris, especially on Sundays when the tiny medieval streets are closed to cars and become pedestrian walks. Nothing in the apt. is brand new, some of the furniture is most likely antique and has the quicks and characteristics of its age, but everything is usable. Apt has a very traditional vintage Paris feel. I'm obsessed with the set of folding chairs provided for additional seating, I want a set for myself. Wifi and all amenities worked just fine. Note to Sophie: One of the lightbulbs to the left of the bathroom mirror went out, and when I changed the bulb it went out again right away.

Great Location and Good Accomodations

  • 3 of 5

The location is great; the apartment is roomy enough for 4 adults if you are ok to share a bathroom. There is a washer/dryer and good size kitchen for Parsian standards. My suggestion to the owner would be to update the furniture as it is relatively worn down. There were no regular pillows, but they had large decorative pillows to use as regular pillows. Also, one of the beds isn't immensely comfortable. The property manager Karim was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this place, but if the owner updated the furniture and got regular pillows for the beds, it would be SO MUCH nicer.

Perfect Location to enjoy Paris!

  • 4 of 5

Charming flat from which to explore Paris. We stayed three nights, with 4 adults and found the apartment well supplied for a short tourist stay close to the Marais. Convenient metro station st Bastille. Overall building well maintained and friendly atmosphere. Would stay here again.

This apartment is in a fantastic neibourghood where you will enjoy walking and visiting the local museums (Picasso, Beaubourg, Carnavalet.

You are near the Line 1 of the Paris Metro that can bring you directly to the Louvre, the Concorde, the Champs-Elysées and La Défense.

The flat is located in the heart of the Marais near the St Paul and Bastille Metro stops (on line 1) and near the Chemin Vert Metro stop (on line 8).

You can also use several Bus Lines (20, 29, 87 etc...).

For croissants, there are many options on both sides of the street. For seafood and brasserie enjoyment, BOFINGER is around the corner.

For a breakfast on a parisian terrasse, We would recommend MA BOURGOGNE on the Place des Vosges.

If you are into fresh produce markets, you will enjoy the markets on the Blvd Richard-Lenoir on Thursdays and Sundays.
