Overview

4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Just off Place Des Vosges, this apartment sits in the best area of the most sought-after neighborhood in Paris.

The 750 sq ft. apartment is up three flights of stairs --there is also an elevator. It is located accross two courtyards, with cross exposure, meaning it is very well lit, and offers absolute silence. The cross exposure also makes it easy to create a nice breeze in the summer.

There are two independent bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, the other two single beds, all high quality. Windows in both bedrooms face the south, so it's very sunny throughout the day. They open on a beautiful garden down below.

The living room has two windows also. It features a confortable sofabed, two loveseats, an antique mahogany dining table & six chairs, a flat screen HD television set with cable TV (includes CNN, BBC international, etc. ) and a small CD player

The bathroom is quite large by parisian standards. It has a tub that doubles as a shower. The boiler/water heater in the apartment provides unlimited, hot water on demand and allows for adjustable and efficient heating in the winter months.

The kitchen is separated from the living area. It’s fitted with a dishwasher, electric oven, gas cooktop, refrigerator & freezer, microwave oven, kettle, coffee machine. There is also a washing machine and a clothes dryer.

The 18th century building, recently redone, is at the corner of rue de Turenne and rue des Francs-Bourgeois, a stones throw from the beautiful Place des Vosges, two minutes from Musee Picasso and Musee Carnavalet.

Le Marais a very nice, central and safe neighborhood with plenty of trendy shops and boutiques ranging from fashion to antiques, plus lots of Museums and historic spots. Unlike some other areas in Paris, you won't have to run very far to buy your dinner: there are several food markets & shops close by. Just across the street is the best bakery in the area...

There's a lot to see within walking distance, and there's a lot of public transportation options just minutes away, which makes the apartment a very strategic location for a Paris visit.

The rental fee includes everything (no additional taxes or supplements). Also:

The apartment comes with Wi-Fi Internet access.

Telephone calls, both local and international, are free of charge.

You can pay for this rental with your Visa® or MasterCard® credit card directly with us, forget about Paypal!

About David

I'm an english-to-french translator who lives in Paris with my wife and my two little kids. I've been renting this family-owned apartment for over twelve years now, which gave me the chance to meed hundreds of guests from all parts of the world!

David purchased this apartment in 1950

Why David chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

Once you've experienced this neighborhood, you can never leave.

What makes this apartment unique

Although it's right in the middle of bustling Le Marais, this apartment is recessed in the middle of the block. Hence, you can't hear any street noise. Also, the view is unbarred, so it's sunny throughout the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear David, We had a wonderful time and the apartment was both charming

and comfortable! We had a day trip to Normandy on Friday of that week, and

enjoyed it thoroughly. Next trip I think we would like to stay at the

Normandy rental. I must look that up. We got the biggest kick out of the

"lift". We had to send the suitcases down one at a time. We especially

enjoyed living in a place with local Parisiens. It was so nice to see the same

neighbors each day with their cheery "Bon Jours". The bakery was fabulous

and each morning I would run out in my sweats for Pain du chocolat, and

croissants. The shops and restaurants were lovely and welcoming , and the

Metro beautifully clean, and easy to access. Compared to our subway system,

it was a treat, believe me. Thank you so much for renting to us. We had a

ball. The Lucases On Friday, November 12, 2004

Charming apartment. Efficient kitchen including an easily working washer and dryer. Great instructions from owner. Owner very accommodating adding extended stay when we requested. Great wifi. Many extra adapters for electronics. Very quiet. Tiny lift but efficient. Close to a variety of café and grocery stores. French Press, but bring the coffee.

Stay in June 2014

  • 2 of 5
The location was very nice. However, the flat was not as quiet as was advertised in the description. There was a party, complete with loud music, in the courtyard directly below the bedrooms that went on until after 2 am on the day we had to catch an early train. Very frustrating. Also, feel the flat could use some upgrading, especially in the bathroom. Loose floor tiles and inconsistent water temperatures while showering.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you had difficulties achieving the right water temperature in the shower. The heater provides unlimited hot water so that every guest can have a hot shower, and I never had any complaints in that department. I did look into it and couldn't find any difficulty in getting the water temperature right. As for the noise, I understand your frustration. I advertise the apartment as "quiet" because it is located far from street noise, and its windows open on a garden on one side, and a courtyard on the other side, making it usually a tranquil place where you can sleep with the windows open, unlike an apartment with windows opening on the street. However, in the end, it's still in the middle of Paris, a big city with lots of people, and occasionally, someone in the neighborhood will be a source of disturbance. Overall, I can't help but find your overall appreciation a little on the harsh side, given the nature of the issues brought up, and honestly thought I had responded adequately and timely to your various requests during your stay.

The perfect start to our French vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family (parents, husband and me) stayed at David's apartment for three nights in September. We had a wonderful time, and the apartment was even better than we expected it to be.

It's located in a great neighborhood that is close enough to some great sightseeing but it's away from the main tourist locations, making you feel like a local for a few days.

The apartment, as promised, faces a private courtyard and was extremely quiet. While some of the furniture looks like it's been rearranged since the photos were taken, the apartment was exactly as the description was written.

I was delighted to learn there were tons of Paris and France travel books in the bookshelf in the master bedroom as well as some magazines, which were nice to flip through when we had some time in the apartment.

We were able to take advantage of having a kitchen by preparing breakfast every morning (after running to the fantastic boulangerie right across the street) and even doing laundry one of the days. Those amenities were extremely helpful.

David was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely prompt with email replies and answered all questions I had, big or small. I would highly recommend this apartment to others looking for an apartment in this neighborhood, and I look forward to the day we can return and stay here again!

Extremely quiet, extremely well equipped charming apartment

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed very much this lovely apartment. Our French is limited but communication in English was easy. We appreciated the wireless connection. The kitchen was very well stocked with not only dishes and cooking utensils but staples as well. The dinning room was ample and would suit a family well for dining in, but our family had great meals dining out. Bus and subway lines and taxi stands were very close so getting around the city was easy. Walking in the neighborhood was really very pleasant with lots of interesting shops and comfortable cafes. Amazingly enough, the apartment was silent at night. It was hard to believe that we could leave the bustling street and yet have a great night's sleep. We've used VRBO before, but not in Europe and would very much recommend this apartment.

Wonderful Apartment and Owner

  • 5 of 5
My wife, grown daughter and I stayed in David's apartment for a week in September 2012. The apartment was as advertised and provided us with a wonderful base of operations for our Paris vacation.
The apartment is relatively large and provided all the room we needed. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean and true to the advertising, we never ran out of hot water. We didn't cook dinner in the apartment but we did eat breakfast in, and also had something light to eat/drink prior to going out each night for dinner. The kitchen appliances (e.g. refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker) that we used worked well. The living room provided enough room to eat at the table, relax on the sofa and chairs, and watch TV when we wanted. The table can double as a working/planning surface. Basic provisions were provided with the apartment. The elevator is quite small but we used it at times for 1 or, if friendly 2 people or 1 and some luggage or just luggage) and it worked well and we were glad to have it.
The location couldn't be better for us. It's convenient to all of Paris, as well as various metro stops. You can easily get anywhere from here. And of course the Marais itself is a wonderful part of Paris.
David is very easy to deal with and wants you to enjoy your stay. Once we decided to rent the apartment, David made everything easy and not complicated. We were able to drop off our luggage early and even get in a little early. While we did not need to contact David during our stay, it was reassuring to know that he was reachable and responsive.
Overall, we did not regret our decision, the apartment was great and we would absolutely rent it again and enthusiastically recommend it.

Large, very clean two-bedroom apartment in the 3rd

  • 5 of 5
My family has now stayed twice at David's apartment - once in June 2012 and now in April/May 2013. Both times we found the place to be very clean and well stocked. There's a washing machine and dryer plus a hair dryer available. David provides all the dishes, cutlery, glasses, cleaning supplies, towels, blankets, and sheets that you could possibly need. The apartment is quite large. We fit 5 adults comfortably this time (last time there were only 3). We never ran out of hot water even with all of us showering. The apartment is in the back of the property so it's quite quiet. David provides lots of resources for you, including guide books, instructions on all the amenities in the apartment, and fast/free wifi. The location is ideal with lots of cafes and shops nearby and it's close to two metro lines. Generally we were able to walk most places and just rely on a few 'carnets' of tickets for the week (we didn't need a full metro pass). David has changed the layout of the living room since he posted the photos. It's actually more open now than it may appear online. The apartment can be a bit chilly at night, even when it's warm outside. This isn't anything specific to David's apartment. Having lived in Ukraine and the UK, I generally find that North American houses have much better insulation than European ones do. I recommend an extra pair of socks and warm pajamas! Overall, it's a great apartment in an excellent location with a very helpful and accommodating landlord. We'll definitely be back next year.
