Lovely and quiet "escape pad" convenient to everything.
Through a covered arcade and courtyard one arrives at this secluded and private studio. There is a vibrant and bustling neighborhood outside, but inside is calm and quiet -- the best of both worlds. The old building has character and charm, and the apartment is clean and comfortable. As important as the property, the management team is extremely responsive and professional--including an on-site concierge in Paris. It is a great alternative to a hotel for 1-2 travelers.
A wonderful stay at the "Racine" Apartment in the Marais District of Paris
The "Racine" is a great property in the Marais District of Paris. It is small, but very comfortable, clean and well equipped with amenities to make it a home away from home. The kitchen has a dishwasher, stove, microwave and coffee maker. There was always plenty of hot water for the shower. The apartment is located in a small, quiet courtyard on the historic Rue St. Paul,and is only a one block walk from the Seine and, in the other direction, a one-block walk to a bustling shopping area and metro stop. The neighborhood is fantastic with restaurants, bakeries, wine stores, and cheese shops nearby. The Ile St-Louis and the Ile De La Cite with Notre Dame cathedral are only a 20 minute stroll away from the apartment. The Paris Opera (Bastille location) is also within easy walking distance.
It is helpful to know that this property is a second floor walk-up via a narrow winding stairway.
Our concierge, Marc Wolters, was a great help to us in getting tickets to several museum events, and he also arranged limousine pickup to and from the CDG airport. Marc also took us on a wonderful private gourmet tour thru the Marche d'Aligre where we sampled cheeses, pastries and fresh market produce. We would definitely stay at this property again on a future trip to Paris.
Living like a local in the Marais!
Wonderful time staying at this apartment! We shopped at the local stores and cooked some great meals. The check in was flawless and the apartment was lovely. The concierge was always available to help, and the WiFi was perfect. The neighborhood was so beautiful. You could spend an entire day just walking around and enjoying the architecture and many unique shops. A metro stop was just a couple minutes away. All in all, we could not imagine a better place to stay in Paris!
Perfect location in a quiet part of Paris.
Beautiful, comfortable apartment close to the Seine in the old village of St. Paul. Our concierge Marc was fabulous!! This apartment is well appointed and QUIET! Would stay here again!
Comfortable, beautiful and very Parisian!
My husband and I booked this lovely apartment for our first trip to Paris, specifically due to the fact that we would need help with the language. Also, the location was charming, with many local amenities and close to Notre Dame Cathedral. And since we were traveling in August, the fact that this was air conditioned was a plus. From beginning to end we had a lovely time in this beautiful apartment. Prior to our stay both Jim, the owner, and Marc the concierge were extremely helpful in making our stay perfect. We highly recommend that you avail yourself of the driver service from the airport. This service worked out perfectly for us from and to the airport. Upon our arrival Mathius, the additional concierge, met us with the keys outside the large wooden door entry to the building. The apartment is on the Rue St. Paul in the Village of St. Paul. The Marais is a beautiful and safe area of Paris. Mathius led us through a narrow but charming brick and stone walkway to an inner courtyard to the entry of the stairway to the apartment. The apartment is as shown in the photos, very clean and well done with lovely antique furniture. The bed and bedding were both clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. Bath was clean and efficient. Hot water perfect! We enjoyed walking to the Miss Manon bakery and the Monoprix grocery for coffee and croissants each morning during our three day stay. During our stay, although we did a lot of wonderful walking, when needed, we used Uber too, which worked like a charm. We would like to sincerely thank Jim Braude for calling us ahead of our trip and Mathius who was very informative, polite and such a huge help to us during our short stay in Paris. And he spoke perfect English. (We then went on to Brittany to visit friends). Thank you again Mathius and Jim for your attention to detail and gracious hospitality. We hope to stay at this lovely apartment during our next visit. C. and D., Hershey, PA, USA
Lovely small apartment in the Marais
The apartment was as described. It is just a short walk to the Seine as well as the Saint Paul Metro Station. Overall a great location to call home during a stay in Paris. We definitely would stay here again during future trips.
The location is in the charming Village Saint Paul, an intimate part of the historic Marais or FOURTH Arrondissement, two blocks from the Seine and the Isle Saint Louis, and within easy walking distance of the Bastille Opera, Place des Vosges, Notre Dame, most major museums and monuments, bars and restaurants, and countless wonderful shops for food, antiques, clothing, and anything else you could imagine.
