STYLISH 2BR/2BA APT NEAR PLACE DES VOSGES

3rd Arrondissement Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

This light-filled, two-bedroom, two-bath apartment is perfectly located near the historic Place des Vosges. We completed an extensive renovation in December, 2006, and everything - from floor to ceiling and every point in between - has been thoroughly updated and maintained to a very high standard.

Tournelles2 pairs wonderful modern design with classic features reflecting the building's XIX century roots, and succeeds in being both elegant and comfortable. The apartment's parquet floors, high ceilings, tall windows, and beautiful moldings are lit by fabulous and fun chandeliers in the entry, kitchen, and living areas, and warmed by dramatic floor-to-ceiling draperies. It has been decorated and equipped thoughtfully, with many conveniences and amenities. Please read our guest comments to see how others have enjoyed this apartment.

The apartment: Tournelles2 has a wonderful layout (see photos below), with well thought out public and private areas. The light streams in from two sides through tall French windows, highlighting the openness of the sleek and well-equipped kitchen, spacious dining area, and inviting living room. The two bedrooms, each with en suite baths, are positioned for privacy. Classic modern furniture is balanced by original fabrics and colorful art work. And, when night falls, the lovely lighting and furnishings provide incentive to dine in - even though the area’s many wonderful cafes and restaurants will beckon.

Tournelles2 is on the first floor French (second floor American), easily accessible by a wide and gently curved staircase. It, of course, comes with every amenity - flat screen TV with cable, DVD, phone with free calling to 28 countries, washer/dryer, free WiFi, heated towel racks, etc. We have also equipped Tournelles2 with a laptop computer so you do not have to lug yours along.

The amenities: In addition, the apartment comes with its own off-site manager, a wonderful and knowledgeable Parisian fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian. In addition to making sure Apartment Tournelles2 is ready for your arrival with fresh flowers, coffee, a bottle of wine, water, milk and other staples, our Parisian host can assist you with any questions about the apartment.

Le Marais: The neighborhood: Tournelles2 is in the midst of the Marais, one of Paris's most historic, most beautiful, and most desirable neighborhoods. From French history to French chic, the Marais has it all. The Marais is also a gourmet's delight—the apartment is near several of Paris’ best open air markets and specialty food stores, and within easy walking of a wide range of dining choices. To help you get acquainted, Apartment Tournelles2 is equipped with numerous guidebooks and maps, as well as information on our favorite places to shop, eat, and sight see in the neighborhood. We provide a complete binder with directions on how to use all of the appliances, lots of neighborhood resources, and general Paris information.

About Cheryl and Pam

Two San Francisco families own this beautiful apartment and its adjacent 'sister'. One family has two youngl children. We traveled to Paris in the winter of 2006 to research buying property, and came home 10 days later as Paris apartment owners. Our dream is to live in Paris, and having these apartments get us one step closer to that. We renovated, decorated, and equipped these apartments based on our prior experiences with vacation rentals in the US and Europe, and hope that you will enjoy all of the amenities and small touches that we have provided. We travel to Paris as often as we can to make sure the apartments stay in top shape. Our goal is to give you a wonderful place to stay, and have you love Paris as much as we do.

Cheryl and Pam purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Cheryl and Pam chose 3rd Arrondissement Le Marais

We love the Marais...it is central to everything, yet retains a neighborhood feel. We love walking out the door and being steps away from fabulous bakeries, restaurants, museums, and great shopping. Paris is a great walking city, and our apartment provides easy access to so much of it. We also love the location because the Paris Metro (subway system) is so close and so easy to use. We also love the Marais because of its history and diversity...from the elegant Place des Vosges to rue des Rosiers' Jewish delis to rue des Archives' gay friendly bars and stores---everyone can feel at home in the Marais.

What makes this apartment unique

Some of our favorite things to do revolve around cooking and eating! We love being just across the street from the twice-weekly Bastille farmers market, and within easy walking distance to two other historic markets on rue des Bretagnes and at Place d'Aligre. And we can never stay at our place and not stop for a meal at Chez Janou, a block away, making sure we save room for their incredible bowl of chocolate mousse! We also love that a short walk takes us to and across the Seine, to Notre Dame and the Left Bank, and never get tired of window shopping along rue des Francs Bourgeois' chic boutiques,or walking under Place des Vosges' magnificent arches.

Our other favorite past time is exploring Paris' various neighborhoods or arrondisements. The fact that we're so close to the 2nd, 4th, 10th, 11th, and 12th facilitates our 'expeditions.' As in our home city, San Francisco, it is the neighborhoods away from the tourist areas that give one a great perspective on the city and its people---and, just like San Francisco, the best food at the best prices are found in the neighborhoods!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From a note sent to us by the Siegels who stayed in the apartment in July 2008:



Dear Cheryl and Pam: Just a short note to say "wow!!" What a truly special place 84, rue des Tournelles is! Our Parisian family adventure was wonderful...and a huge part of our great experience was due to the amazing place we called "home" for almost 2 weeks. Really - it was such a perfect set-up for us (and I'm sure for anyone). Besides your having impeccable taste, every amenity was thought of and that sure does add to the ease and enjoyment of one's vacation. And, being the detailed gal that I am, I really enjoyed reading your helpful information guide (the black binder!).



After 2 mornings of baguettes from our local and very convenient boulangerie (Banette), which was perfectly fine, we then ventured to Au Levain du Marais to sample THE BEST. Amazing stuff. Actually my 5 year old and 18 year old made that part of their morning routine - picking up bread and treats for the family breakfast. My husband and I were also lucky enough to have gotten 3 nice dinners out of the deal--so great that we were transported to such special, quiet places only steps away from our apartment. Big thumbs up for Chez Janou, Le Petit Marche, and La Cave de St. Gilles. Thanks for the wonderful tips.



So, with great sadness, I am returning the apartment key to you. You have inspired us to save our pennies and plan for our next European adventure. You have also restored my confidence in trusting the Internet for booking accommodations (I had a previous bad experience)...



All the best to you both and please feel free to contact us when in NYC. We would love to meet you.



Take care,

Ronni and Jan Siegel

Live Like a Local!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this apartment in August and it exceeded expectations. The location is spectacular with everything you need close by and everything else in Paris is easily reachable via a Metro stop literally around the corner. My daughters loved the true French Windows and the privacy of the two bedrooms. The time the owners have taken to make the place easy for guests merits mention too. They have a thorough notebook of information, an entire shelf of guidebooks and a even a blog with reviews of local restaurants.

I can't think of a negative to report. Oh, well, I guess one can always complain about European plumbing and appliances. For example, the all-in-one washer dryer unit as is as slow as the owners warn you that it is :-)

The apartment is magnificent. You can't beat the location. Not just in the Marais, but 200 feet from a Metro stop and not much farther from wonderful food. It is an easy walk to the islands and their attractions and to other great neighborhoods. The local manager is thoughtful and helpful. The amenities were great, including a working washer, excellent kitchen stocked with essentials, every Paris guide book one could want, maps, and even a few complementary Metro tickets. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were excellent. A/C in the rooms was a nice luxury. I think the title says it all. This is the only place we will stay in Paris.

We spent 7 great days in Paris at this lovely apartment and couldn't have had a better time! The location is fantastic and we walked all over! It was very quiet at night and everything was very clean, and neat and we just enjoyed the Parisian feel and ambiance.

We would not heistate to come back again!

The most wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We adored this flat and were really comfortable staying there. It's quite spacious by European standards, yet feels homey. Quiet, scrupulously clean, and with every amenity you need for a short stay. Beautifully located, a block from Métro stop and within an easy walk from all of the Marais, the Île de la Cité, etc. The apartment manager stocks the kitchen with what you'll need for the first day, which is a thoughtful touch. The perfect pied-à-terre from which to explore Paris!

Beautiful apartment in the Marais area of Paris

  • 5 of 5
Hi

Just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed staying at your apartment. We were so impressed with the layout and furnishings of the apartment. The location was ideal and we wouldn't have had a better time any where else. We visited every Parisien sight possible and also enjoyed eating at the small cafés and boulangeries steps away from the apartment. Our first meal was at a restaurant called Le Petit Italien on Sainte-Gilles, and it was one of our favorites of our trip. The truffle risotto was to die for! Thank you for sharing your beautiful apartment with us and I look forward to coming back to Paris and staying at one of your apartments. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation or a better place to stay, Thanks again.

A wonderful home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our month in this very comfortable, charming and convenient apartment. It lived up to its VRBO description, as well as the many rave reviews it has received. The location has to be one of the best in the Marais -- we rarely went more than two or three blocks for dinner, as so many truly excellent neighborhood restaurants abound (do not miss Chez Janou, Le Petit Italienne, Le Petite Marchais, all of which we returned to several times), but we were also delighted to walk for miles every day to all the nearby points of interest. We bought a Navigo Metro pass good for a month, and so were able to make frequent use of the two nearby Metro stations to roam all over the city. We will absolutely plan to use this apartment again! Thank you Pam and Cheryl, for your hospitality, patience, and prompt responses to our questions and concerns.
