Overview

3rd Arrondissement Le Marais Condo Rental Photos and Description

Bedrooms 4, Bathrooms 3, Sleeps 8

A magnificent 18th century palace on a quiet street in the beautiful, and now chic and trendy Marais District of Paris, offers a special apartment for fortunate guests. Enter through a high portal into a quiet and beautiful courtyard lined with boxed Magnolias. Then enter through a private door directly into the apartment. The light from the courtyard enters the apartment, but cunning glass French doors prevent any prying eyes from seeing inside, while the insiders have an unobstructed view of the courtyard. The large entry hall, lined with 18th century stone is still modern and welcoming, with planted lemon trees, interesting antiques from the owners' travels, and attractive paintings. Add to this every modern comfort. The apartment is on two floors with two separate living rooms. There are two master bedrooms on the entry floor each with its own modern bathroom, and one double and one with two twin beds, and its own sitting area, on the lower floor. The two floors are separated by a charming spiral staircase. There is a beautiful dining room which seats 10 easily, a nice kitchen, and much more.

It is located in one of Parisians' most favored locations, the Marais. From the mid-thirteenth century, the Marais became one of the most important aristocratic areas of Paris. By World War II the Marais had declined, but a major effort was made beginning in the 1950's to renovate the area. The main palaces and mansions were restored and turned into museums: the Picasso Museum, the Paris Historical Museum and the Cognac-Jay Museum are now prominent and worthy of a visit. In turn, this building has been returned to its former glory by an eminent designer/developer and a very few privileged owners have apartments in it. The Georges Pompidou Museum, France's national Museum of Modern Art and one of the world's most important cultural institutions, was built on the western edge of the Marais. Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano were the architects of this architecturally revolutionary building. The Marais has become incredibly chic and you will find trendy shops, countless art galleries, and all varieties of restaurants and cafes. You can shop away and dine very well between museum visits!

The Pompidou, Picasso, Carnavelet Museums, the Place de Voges, The Seine, the Cathedral of Notre Dame are a 10 mn walk. You will also find the Opera not far away. Two metros are less than a 4 minute walk, RER a 7 minute walk, 2 bus stops within 2 Minutes.

Fantásticas vacaciones en París

  • 5 of 5
Es un piso ideal para ir en grupo o en familia. Estuvimos 8 amigas compartiendo cómodamente las 4 habitaciones y los tres baños y disfrutamos de la acogedora decoración . Está muy bien situado en el barrio de Le Marais, muy interesante tanto por su arquitectura como por sus tiendas y restaurantes . A 10 minutos andando de la Place des Vosges, la más antigua de París y única por su especial diseño .
Mis amigas y yo, estamos encantadas de volver .

Beware of this listing

  • 2 of 5
The apartment is quiet and in a good location. That is all that is good about this place. The photos and furnishings make it look far better than reality.

The lower level (2 bedrooms and a living room) is a subterranean basement with no windows. The ventilation is poor. All bathrooms are all interior also with poor ventilation. Only one of the so-called master bedrooms upstairs has a bath adjacent. This bedroom is also interior and has no exterior windows. The other master bedroom uses a bath off the kitchen. The only operable window is the front door to the courtyard. You are not allowed to use or sit in the courtyard. The circular stair is treacherous especially with luggage. To use the garden you must exit to the street and use another entrance. The washer dryer was useless with no instructions. We asked for instructions on arrival and did not receive. One of the two ceiling fans did not function. We were told for additional ventilation to buy additional fans and be reimbursed. There is also a vented floor drain in the dining room either for sewer or grey water. Our stay was tolerable but we would not recommend this apartment. It is not worth the price.

FYI: In accordance with most US most building codes and the International Uniform Building Code, three of the four bedrooms would be illegal as they have no exterior windows for emergency egress and access. Is this different under French law? Whatever the law is in France, it should be noted that these bedrooms are not considered safe or legal in the US.

Owner's Response: So many people have loved this beautifully decorated, spacious apartment. It is unfortunate that you did not feel the same, but creating a list of flaws based on inaccuracies, and untruths,makes your motives questionable. It is rare to find a 4 bedroom apartment and more rare to find one with 3 bathrooms. We do describe the two masters as each having its own, dedicated bathroom, and are clear that one is en-suite and one adjacent. For most people this seems fine.The two Masters are on a spacious, and well lit floor, with a large full wall window and glass door. The second level is below ground , but its huge and high vaulted, stone ceilings are as romantic as it gets, and so typical of old Paris. This floor has been meticulously restored. Though the bedrooms, as you say, do not have windows, they are generally regarded as a great place to sleep with high quality bedding and great lighting. Families love it as the kids have their own floor and own living room.Bathrooms have ventilation, and there ARE fans available. All ceiling fans work, but each has two switches; Guests in the lower floor who miss windows during the day are happy in the upstairs sitting room with its wide window wall, or they can go the garden. This apartment does have a lovely private garden via the other entrance off the street, which guest are welcome to use. You were given the code at arrival, and in the detailed Guest note which you were sent ahead of time. It is too bad that you did not take advantage of this. It is a rare thing, and far better than a deck or balcony. Working into this rare and beautifully landscaped separate garden does not , in any way seem to be the struggle that you imply. The circular staircase is clearly pictured on our site and this one. I find the word "treacherous" totally inappropriate, but if people have problems with stairs, then they can easily put the less spry upstairs. They would have no need to go to the lower floor. Also, a quick email to our offices or a call to your Greeter and we would have been happy to troubleshoot the washing machine with you if we'd known they had troubles. WE DID NOT! There is NO Water in what you call a drain. In fact the dining room use to be a courtyard and is now glassed over. The drain remains but it is dry. No water! A Heritage building, all building codes were followed , inspected and approved.
Our prime interest is to provide great accommodation and have happy Guests. We provided the former.

Ideal Stay

  • 5 of 5
The property was as described, clean, charm and great location. The apartments arrangement work very well for our family. My daughter used one of the two bedrooms on the main floor and my wife and I used the other. The lower level was perfect for our son, his wife and daughter, giving them privacy as a family but part of the whole group. The proximity to all the sites is great, within walking distance many.

The two levels, does, as you say, offer privacy and proximity at the same time. Thank you so much for writing. Do come back to Paris soon! I hope that you will stay with us again.

Terrific Week's Vacation with Family

Terrific Week's Vacation with Family
  • 3 of 5
The location of the apartment was excellent and we enjoyed the neighborhood and its proximity to the Marais district. How can you not love being in Paris! The apartment was well appointed and had WiFi which was great There were 8 of us and we did find the description of the apartment somewhat misleading. The spiral staircase to the lower floor was extremely narrow and difficult to get suitcases up and down. Also, the fourth bedroom on the lower floor with the twin beds was open onto the living room and there was no privacy. We would recommend that the apartment be advertised as a three bedroom apartment with two additional twin beds so it can sleep up to 8 people. We had a slight plumbing problem with the toilet in the downstairs bathroom while we were there and it was very noisy when the toilet was flushed or the shower used. There are no windows downstairs as it's below ground and the only windows upstairs are at the front of the apartment. To manage expectations of the renters, we think these points need to be made in the description.

Owner's Response: Dear JB
I am happy to hear that you had a wonderful time in Paris and that you found the apartment well appointed. It is especially well decorated with great style and quality, and as you find out, in a great location. However, I am surprised that you felt mislead. Not only is there a picture of the spiral staircase showing exactly what it looks like on the web-site, but it is mentioned again in the letter that we send to all inquiries. You certainly were not mislead. It is, in fact, the only kind of staircase possible, and many people have stayed there without feeling that it is anything but charming. I do in my letters to all adult groups of 8, as yours was, indicate that one bedroom is open. However, 1) it does not open to the main-living room, but to its own, downstairs, second living room. 2) There is a screen which you can see in the picture that is there to block it off. 3) and here is the good news: the owner is there this week and is planning to put a door there. We were aware of the plumbing problem which the guests that checked out the day before your arrival advised us about. The plumber did come, and advised that the work would take two days. This was in fact discussed with you, and it was decided that it was best to not disturb you and to leave you with the use of all the bathrooms, even with this small problem while you were there, that to have it serviced and blocked off. The plumber has been scheduled to come in this week, and fix the issues. If you decided to come back, I think that you would find most of your problems solved!
