The wall of the kitchen is also fitted with a series of wooden shelves, where a TV and some period lamps are located.

The living area includes a vintage brown leather 'Coronado' couch by Afra & Tobia Scarpa and an armchair dating back to the ‘60es, covered with colourful fabrics. A collection of coffee tables completes the room, while an austere handmade lamp by Rosewood Tube Wall Light decorates the wall. The window of the living area overlooks the street.

Area The apartment is located in the 4th arrondissement, not far from the Picasso Museum, the Hotel de Ville, Notre Dame, the Isle Saint Louis, the Centre Pompidou and Place des Vosges, built by Henry IV at the beginning of the 1600s and constructed in a particular brick and stone manner found only in Paris.The Marais is a typically bourgeois neighbourhood which covers areas of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, on the Rive Droite of Paris (right bank of the Seine).

Most of the buildings in this district are very old. It partly explains the very small streets. This area is full of tales from the past. It is very rich thanks to its historical background and its location. It has been a key part of Paris since almost the very foundation of the city itself. During the 12th Century the Templars eliminated the marshlands north of Philippe Auguste’s borders, and starting from the 16th Century the aristocrats started building vast residences in the area, a tendency which was infinitely increased after the creation of Place Royale, later transformed into Place des Vosges by Henri IV in 1605. The eventual decision to move the royal court to Versailles caused a drastic decline to the area, and Haussman’s later movement to re-establish the city saw an active renovation exclusively in the Marais.In 1969 André Malraux declared the Marais to be the first protected area, with all its museums, art galleries and historical sites.

Public transports The closest metro stop is SAINT PAUL (line 1), BASTILLE (lines 1, 5, 8) or SULLY MORLAND (line 7).

Parking The closest pay parking garage is the Parking Société Parisienne in 16 Rue St Antoine, at 70 metres.

Beautiful and spacious place in great location

  • 5 of 5

first time in Paris. location recommended by a friend. found this place. family of 6. easily fit and everyone had a bed. 2 showers. kitchen very functional. think there were air conditioners but they weren't functional (maybe get them turned on?). building very old and cool, in great shape. it makes you feel like you'r din Paris! close to place de Vosges. only big issue was its about 65 steps up to the apartment and with luggage is a challenge. there also was a woman that yelled at us twice for noise -not sure we were all that loud but she may have been right. great boulongerie right across the street on rue st Antoine. close to st Paul and Bastille station and buses really close. monoprix great place to get groceries. easy check in and out. would absolutely return there. Enjoy...

Great location with home amenities you would expect.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The location was impeccable. Transit was a block away and plenty of local boulangers, patissiers, brasseries, grocers, boucheries, wine shops etc. within walking distance. The Bastille, Marais, Hotel de Ville, were nearby and all of the tourist destinations were a simple metro ride away.

The home, itself, was spacious, quiet, lots of light with generous cross breeze as it has a street exposure as well as a courtyard. We did experience a bit of a heatwave but the team worked hard to bring us some fans.

We would look forward to staying here again. Thanks!

A wonderful apartment in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this apartment. it is a lovely place in a perfect location, just what we wanted. Only two things were a bit problematic, it was very hot in Paris during our stay, and the apartment is not equipped with AC. Marco was so kind to arrange a fan, but it was not always enough to cope with the heat. something more powerful would have made our stay (especially the nights) more conveniente. The other thing was the cleanes of the apartment. it was dusty when we arrived and there were little ways for us to clean it ourselfs (rags, mobs etc.).

Marco was wonderful and available for us with all our needs.

Owner's Response: Dear Esther, thank you very much for taking the time of writing a review about your experience in Paris We are really sorry to hear that some aspects of our service didn't quite meet the expectations, we use to do our best to meet our guest's needs. The apartment has no A/C as reported on the description online and we are used to provide our clients with fans when it's really hot; please be aware that summer is generally cool in Paris with some exceptions here and there. We feel sorry for the cleaning, we will check with the cleaning lady for sure. We really hope that you will come back sooner or later, we would be more than glad to welcome you again! Kind regards, Halldis Team
