Overview

About the property

Apartment, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Location: The Marais, oldest and most colorful neighborhood in Paris. This apartment has an unobstructed view of the Seine and the Isle Saint Louis, and is just a block from Metro Line 1, providing easy access to most of the city's historic monuments, from the Bastille Opera to the Louvre to the Champs Elysees. It was built just inside the medieval city walls, the best-preserved remnant still visible down the block.

Description: On the fourth floor, with elevator, of a late nineteenth century building, this centrally air-conditioned (!) 31 square meter (336 square feet) apartment is bathed in light from three large south-facing windows. Antique oak floors have been lovingly restored, and the kitchen and bath are finished with elegant porcelain tiles which echo the pale hues of a 17th century Parisian limestone wall, a portion of which is exposed in a decorative niche. There is more than adequate storage for luggage and clothing making the apartment comfortable and practical for a stay of any duration. Decoration and furnishings include raw silk drapes with sheers, comfortable sofa-bed to accommodate a third person, dining table and chairs with seating for four, and a writing desk with hi-speed computer connection. Built-in niches at the head of the bed are equipped with switches for reading lamps and room lighting, and a digital alarm clock. Other amenities include a washer/dryer, dishwasher and flat screen TV with CNN, BBC and other premium channels.

We offer FULL CONCIERGE services - we will meet you at arrival to your apartment, and we are available 24/7 during your stay for questions or advice. We also offer CHAUFFEUR service to and from the airport (90E/one way/2 guests) - direct from customs with a sign with your name on it, to the apartment, luggage in hand!

Who is perfect for this apartment? Any single traveler or couple who value the tangible remnants of Paris’s long, rich history and the creature comforts of a fully renovated, highly functional, air conditioned space.

Why do I love this apartment? It has the rare combination of a beautiful view and quiet calm in a less busy corner of the Marais, while being only a stone’s throw from a major Metro line. Wonderful restaurants and shops are steps away, and when you are home, the apartment envelops you in comfort and that indescribable Parisian sunlight.

Exceptional Care and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

You really cannot go wrong with this property or any property offered by the company that manages it (www.ourhomeinparis.com). We had an unexpected emergency during our trip, and how the company handled it speaks volumes about their integrity and hospitality. My husband, son (age 12) and I rented the Charlemagne/Voltaire efficiency apartment for five nights. It is a fantastic apartment. Plenty of space for three people. Very bright and airy due to the large windows, sparkling clean, and the beds extremely comfortable (even the pull-out). The location is easy walking distance to many major sights and there are subway stops nearby. Two nights in, however, the building management had to shut off our water due to a leak into the apartment below ours. Anyone who owns a house (or lives in one) knows that things break down from time to time, so this should not dissuade you from renting this apartment! I am sharing the story because a good rental is one where the owner takes good care of you during your stay (when things are going perfectly, but most importantly when problems arise). We reported the leak, and Marc (our concierge) appeared at our door in less than five minutes to investigate. When he could not identify the cause of the leak (or consult a plumber -- due to a bank holiday), he immediately moved us to a gorgeous three bedroom apartment just two blocks away for the duration of our stay. Yes -- a very large, newly-renovated THREE bedroom apartment, meticulously decorated in beautiful antiques. No additional charge for the upgrade. Both Marc and the owner (who reached out from the U.S. to check on us after our move) were apologetic, helpful and supportive. They literally bent over backward to make sure we were comfortable, and we certainly were. So I can say without hesitation or reservation that we would use this company again. Indeed, this is the only company I would use to rent an apartment in Paris, in light of our experience. You simply cannot go wrong. And to Marc and Jim -- thank you for taking such good care of us. We had an amazing time at BOTH apartments, and we will definitely be back!

Lovely studio, great location, excellent concierge

  • 4 of 5

I appreciate the work that went into updating this little apartment: new kitchen, new bath, new lighting and decor. A friend who visited was so taken by the oak flooring that he ran his hand over it and said he wanted to lick it. We felt very much at home. One advantage of an apartment is that one can cook, which saves money and, in our case, saves energy. It is easier for me to make a little breakfast and a little dinner than to take my husband, who is disabled, out to eat three times a day. Even though the studio comes with only a two-burner stove and a microwave oven, they were more than sufficient for our purposes.

My husband is at the limit of disability for this apartment. He is able to walk a little and climb a few stairs, with assistance. It was a lot of work getting him and the small wheelchair into the tiny elevator. But we did it. He did not, however, take a bath in the beautiful big bathtub, which is too high for me to help him into. He just got a sponge bath seated on the toilet. If you or your companion is disabled or partially disabled, I suggest finding a different place. That's my only caveat.

Other than that, I whole-heartedly recommend this studio as a proper pied-a-terre for a stay in Paris.

Lovely Respite in Central Paris Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Rue de Charlemagne. A great place to stage an exploration of Paris both on foot and Metro. Quite comfortable with lovely natural light. Nice surprises included concierge service and free internet phone to make calls home to the U.S. Elevator is not always reliable. We hope to return!

Paris is always a good idea

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to Paris and I cannot say how wonderful it way. This studio was perfect for me. I would not recommend for more than two people because it is a studio. The location was great - the Metro was right through the courtyard and the restaurant downstairs (Chez Mademoiselle) has great food and amazing staff. I don't speak fluent French but that was not a problem. Jim and Marc are amazing hosts. Marc met me and give me lists of places to eat and see. I wandered around Paris very happy and my resting place was in my opinion perfect. I woke up to sun shining in my window everyday and I was one block from the Seine, few blocks from Norte Dame. If you like walking this is the perfect spot. I walked one day to Avenue des Champs-Élysées - it was about an hour but the weather for me was bright, warm and sunny. The neighborhood (Le Marais) is fun and safe to walk around - there are a nice mix of shops and eateries. Anytime I reached out I was responded to promptly. I cannot say enough good things about this place except I will be returning next year. Thanks Jim and Marc for making my first time in Paris AMAZING.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved your apartment at 16 Rue de Charlemagne in Paris! What a great location! I think we have spoiled ourselves because, if/when we go back to Paris, I cannot fathom staying anyplace else. Also, kudos to Marc and Mathias - - Marc referred us to some great restaurants and set up drivers and tours while Mathias made us feel at home. We are telling all of our friends about your place.
