Set in a magnificient 17th Century building in the very heart of the Marais in the Rue Vieille du Temple this two storey duplex apartment was originally a 'hotel particular' (mansion house) built in 1622. The term Hotel Particular refers to grand old private mansions built around a courtyard.

From Rue Vieille du Temple walk through the incredibly high wooden carved doors and enter the green oasis of the central courtyard to reach one of the building wings. From here take the elevator leading to our 17th Century Maison apartment, one of only two duplexes built on the last two floors.

Facing both the beautiful interior courtyard and the street, this bright, quiet and spacious 90 square metres (970 square foot) home sleeps up to six people.

With wonderful roof top views of the old houses of the Marais you can see the magnificent stone and slate roofs as well as the street scenes of the Rue Vieille du Temple.

The architect who designed the interior space created a mix of old venerable home with great vistas. The huge living and dining room have stone tiled floors and arched ceilings with bold architectural steps leading to the upstairs bedrooms.

Keeping the original wooden beams, white stucco walls and stone fireplace he created a truly romantic hideaway.

The kitchen is practical and has all modern appliances such as washing machine and dishwasher.

The bathroom has a bath with shower, water closet and a window giving you lots of light.

Look through any of the nine panoramic windows and gain a fascinating insight into the days of glory of the old kingdom. The apartment is bathed in light in all rooms throughout the year and cool breezes in the spring, summer and fall.

lovely apt in great area

  • 4 of 5

The greeters were patient in explaining everything about the apartment. The apartment was spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots etc. The apartment is in a wonderful vibrant area. One small problem. There are several very popular bars downstairs. Until I found earplugs I was awake until 2 or 3 in the morning. Despite that small glitch I liked the apartment very very much. I would rent it again.

My guests and I love to walk around Paris. This place seems to be very centrally located. We found it easy to walk to Bastille, the Louvre, all over.

The elevator was a blessing after a long day exploring.

Our second visit to this awesome home. We will definitely be returning again and again. Check in process was extremely easy. Walking distance to lots of sightseeing attractions. Great for family vacations. They may consider replacing the couches in the future for further comfort. Love, love, love this rental.

LOVED our vacation apartment in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We were three adults and one child (husband, wife, son, and wife's sister). The layout was perfect for having lots of extra space so we weren't crammed in with each other 24/7. The master bedroom was great for my husband and I, while the second bedroom with two beds was great for my son and his aunt. The shower was the best I have ever experienced in Europe - great water pressure and not super small. The check in process was very easy and our 'host' was very pleasant and informative. The apartment has lots of windows for light and air flow. The windows open onto both the street and the courtyard. I loved laying in bed in the morning and watching the sun rise over the rooftops from my attic bedroom. The street was a busy one with lots of the necessities near by (fran prix, boulonger, etc). The metro was an easy walk as well. We would definitely rent this apartment again. We felt like it had everything we needed (washer/dryer, drying rack, iron, fans when it got too warm, big fridge, full over/range, microwave, dishwasher, extra towels and bedding, etc.). Thanks for the wonderful stay.

Beautiful apartment in the Marais (with an elevator!)

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 8 fabulous days at the apartment in the heart of the Marais. The accommodations were excellent, quiet and perfectly located. We will definitely be booking here again in the future. Management met us at the apartment to review all details and answered all questions. Extremely satisfied clients.

The staff was very helpful and explained everything in sufficient detail. The apartment was clean and stocked with the basics. It was ideal for the family including 2 young kids. In the heart of the marais it was an excellent location ideal for a base camp throughout Paris!!!

Two couples and two young adults.

We loved the apartment. First, booking was easy and safe through pay pal. Our Paris agent was terrific in getting us settled in and oriented, with great ideas for our stay. The space was beautifully designed with plenty of room, much larger than we expected. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and the international phone capability was a plus. We loved being up on the top floor- no problem at all. We did the stairs often on the way down, but the lift up was welcome on days we walked alot!

Some things to consider perhaps- the hot water is VERY hot. The mattress on the pull out very thin and noisy (Ikea bed?)- we had to add many quilts to make comfortable. A leak from the shower door worried us.

Something to consider-our stay was over the World Cup and Bastille Day celebrations. La Marais is very lively and noisy! We loved it, but others may not.

Small food markets are very close, worlds best falafel's on rue de Rosier- 50 steps away. Terrific boulangerie next door. Shopping in the Marais is great fun. July has "Soldes" -sales on everything! We wandered and shopped till we dropped. One thing we did that was wonderful was attend a String Ensemble and soloist concert at Eglise St. Paul-Saint Louis. Fantastic!

We walked to Ile St. Louie in 5 minutes, Notre Dames in 8 minutes. Our Paris agent suggested we do a hop on hop off bus the first day to get oriented to Paris-which we did. After, we got very good with the metro and went everywhere with ease. Don't miss Rue Cler. And lastly- get a Paris Museum Pass.
