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!

The location of the property was ideal, in the 4th district and very close to the metro as well as Notre Dame. Our trip was a dream come true!

Lovely studio apartment. Great location. Despite equipment malfunctions the owner made it right.

  • 4 of 5

The owner of this lovely studio apartment made the most of its minimal square footage to provide a cozy but comfortable option for my wife and myself to enjoy our week in Paris. Located on a quiet street in the fashionable Le Marais district with proximity to the St. Paul metro station and the 69 bus line we found the location simply wonderful. It was a particularly hot and humid week in Paris, though, and the air conditioner broke down on the second day of our week-long stay. We contacted the owner, Jim Braude, who arranged for our personal concierge to move us to another (much larger) apartment just a few short blocks away for the remainder of our stay. This remarkable display of customer service salvaged our week and provided us a wonderful sojourn in our favorite city in Europe.

Gorgeous apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is so gorgeous and is in such a fantastic location. St Paul metro station is located within a one min walk and there are tonnes of nearby restaurants and shops. We could easily walk to nearby tourist attractions (Notre Dame etc).

Bed was comfy and the shower was also decent.

Jim, Marc and Mathias were all so pleasant to deal with. We even left our ipad in the safe and Marc posted it to our next destination. Highly recommend this apartment!
