About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

A modern and fully equipped apartment in the very heart of Paris, steps from the Pompidou and a ten minute walk from Notre Dame. Fully equipped like a home away from home with marble detailing, wooden beams on the ceilings and all the amenities you could find at home.

The apartment consists of a bedroom, bathroom and open area kitchen and living room. In the living room is a pull out couch which can comfortably sleep two, so the apartment can sleep up to 4 people. There is a private terrace where you can enjoy coffee and a croissant in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. There is an extra deep bathtub where it is great to soak after a long day sightseeing. Some amenities that are hard to find in the Marias are at your disposition such as an elevator, double glazing on the windows, great heating, air conditioning, and water softener. You have access to laundry machines and a dishwasher. You have high speed internet access, a land line with free calls to the US and access to a number of movies to watch. There is also a gas stove top and an ethanol fireplace.

The Marais is the best part of Paris. Marais means swamp in French and it used to be the poorest and most dangerous part of the city, even into the 90s. Because of this when baron Haussmann bulldozed the streets and created big boulevards in the 1800s he left the Marais alone so it is one of the only areas in Paris where you still have little windy streets, crooked corners, and small buildings. On Sundays it is the busiest place as it's the only place where shops are allowed to stay open and the streets are closed to cars. It's now considered the gay area and is where most of the funky and innovative shops are located. It is also the area where the Orthodox Jewish community lives and so you will find long lines for the best falafels in Paris. In the Marais you will find the Pompidu, the national archives, the Picasso museum, Hotel de Ville (the mayors office), the photography museum, the doll museum, musee Carnavalet (Paris history museum), the city library, the Jewish museum, the hunting museum and Place des Voges. Of course there is a lot more to see in Paris and as you are directly in the middle of the city it only takes half an hour to get anywhere from here! There is also a great nightlife here with lots of bars. Although mostly a gay area there are also straight bars within walking distance as well as jazz clubs and fantastic restaurants. And don't worry about the noise on the weekend as we have double glazing and so the apartment is a haven of peace and calm.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a multi-national who has been living in France since 2005. I have always lived in the Marais and love the neighbourhood.

Why the Owner Chose Saint-Merri, Paris, France:
I bought this property because it had the rare amenities of an elevator and a terrace. I gutted the place and put in all new plumbing, electricity, walls, floors and amenities that I missed from my time in America such as water softener.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It's very unusual to find water softener in Paris and also sometimes air conditioner. In summer I have visitors come over who won't leave because of the nice cool air.
