EARLY BIRD SPECIAL 10%OFF*CENTRAL* Comfy Artist Home,Marais, Pompidou,NotreDame

Staying and experiencing Parisian life as Parisian.

If you want to experience Paris at its best then come to Marais. This area of Marais is central, safe, and packed full of cafes, bars, famous nightclubs, music venues and the famous Enfants Rouges Market along with beautiful Places des Voges and museums,the most fashionable district of the center of Paris.The flat is situated at the 3rd arrondissement .Center of the center.

The appartement is in the 19th building , has entirely been renovated recently, January 2015 by me, a Japanese interior designer and furnished with mixed selected original high standard vintage design furniture.So most of things are brand new.

It is filled with art and antiques from my own paintings and my choice of vintage finds, antiques and objets d'art.

The apt window overlooks the inner courtyard so even though you're situated very center of Paris or in the Marais, the apt is very calm and quiet .

It is on the 2nd floor, NO elevator.

LOCATION! The location is very convenient as a sightseeing base for the whole Paris. For those who enjoy shopping, art, culture,… this is the perfect place .

Ideally located for exploring all that Paris has to offer - shopping, art galleries, museums, cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, palaces and parks - in what is arguably considered one of the most beautiful and historic neighbourhoods in Paris.

it is a perfect place to call home when you stay out all day exploring the city

There is also a ton of bars and restaurants in the area. So anything you want, you can get it.Take a look at my guidebook or just ask me! Paris has so much to offer and I will be really happy to guide you through my neighborhood.

The apartment is just next to the well known Georges Pompidou Museum /Arts et Metiers Museum.

It is also in walking distance from the very center of Paris and many sightseeing (Saint Michel, Notre Dame, Louvre museum, Picasso museum,Places des Voges,.... ).

Lily's place was perfect - wonderful location in Marais, which was the cutest neighborhood within walking distance of Notre Dame and with some of the best restaurants, bakeries, etc. Lily's flat was whimsically designed and we loved all the cute details and decorations -- it really helped enhance our already wonderful stay in Paris! I would definitely recommend Lily's place for anyone looking for a cute French experience in a wonderful neighborhood.

Charming apartment for 2

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is small, but bigger and nicer than a hotel room and very comfortable for 2. We used the kitchen for breakfasts and some light dinners after eating a big meal in a nice restaurant at lunch. It is in the Marais, and is well connected with 4 nearby metro stops. It is also near several of the major shopping areas and large department stores. Our focus for sightseeing this trip was smaller museums, restarurants and patisseries/chocolate shops. Our secondary focus was wandering the small streets in the Marias and latin quarter, looking at the interesting shops we found and stopping at cafes. It was easy and quick to get where we wanted to go from the apartment. We would definitely go back again.

Great apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the apartment was enjoyable. The place is compact and functional, with all amenities in good working condition, and had been decorated in a stylish and eclectic fashion by Leelee, the apartment owner. The location in the 3rd arrondissement is great, with metro stations only 3 mins away and a 20-25 min walk to major landmarks such as Notre Dame, the Louvre, Center Pompidou, etc. The local area also had a ton of shops, restaurants and boulangeries. The neighborhood is very quiet, with little to no noise (expect for some construction in the building itself).

Leelee was extremely helpful and was very easily available through WhatsApp to answer any questions we had. The check-in and check-out processes were smooth and painless, as was getting to and from the apartment in a taxi. The security deposit can be paid through PayPal instead of local currency, and was returned very promptly as well.

The apartment is on the 2nd floor (3rd floor by US measures) and there is no elevator, so it may be a challenge for those with mobility issues. That being said, I traveled with my parents, who are both above 70, and they managed fine. Overall, a great experience - we will definitely visit again!

Real Parisian experience. Best location

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Lily's place was a wonderful experience for me. She was very easy to communicate with and she speaks fluent English and she was very quick to reply to my messages. Lily was very hospitable and really went out of her way to make sure that not only was I enjoying her flat but that I was enjoying Paris. She knows the city very well and she recommended several things for me to do and restaurants for me to eat at. The apartment is fairly large for Paris center ,very clean and quiet. I visited 6 cities in Paris and had my best sleep in that place.The location could not have been better. It was located in the most happening area in Paris, if you're into restaurants, art and shopping. It is also only a short distance walk to all the main sights to see. Her neighbour hood has a lot of character and great restaurants only steps away from her apartment.The only bad thing was I couldn't stay longer. I would highly recommend Lily's place to anyone travelling to Paris.

What a find!!!Heaven of peace.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 4 day stay at this apartment. We have been to Paris many times and this apartment was the best we have seen. It has all the amenities, very tastefully decorated.When we arrived, Lily was waiting to give us a tour and provide all the information we might need, including several tips for activities we had not known about. We were pleased with the building's security and apartment's quiet location in the building. We wanted to visit museums this trip and the location was perfect, whether it was walking 25 minutes to the Louvre or hopping on the metro less than a block away.

It was easy getting groceries across the street, indulging in excellent chocolate at a nearby shop, and window-shopping at higher-end stores nearby. Any question we had was answered promptly. We highly recommend renting Lily's apartment.
