Ideally located in the heart of the Marais district, a couple of steps away from the Pompidou Center and a 12 min. walk from Notre Dame.
Location on the 6th floor (with elevator) gives great view of the Pompidou Center, exceptional natural lighting, and quietness.
The Pompidou Escape has very modern designer furniture and was recently fully renovated. The owners provide luxury sheets, towels, shampoo, shower gel and soap. They welcome guests with a bottle of wine and a local dessert.
The decor reflects the owners' passion for Tango. Tango aficionados will appreciate the Pompidou Escape's proximity to 2 famous Parisian Tango studios.
Our style: We (the owners of this apartment) are a cosmopolitan couple who have lived and studied in many countries (France, Italy, Russia, Lebanon and the United States). We have taken extreme care in selecting, furnishing and decorating this apartment ensuring we would feel comfortable and enjoy it. Our style is modern and minimalistic and is colored by our passion for Tango dancing. We hope you will enjoy it too and remain available for any question or concern.
We are an international couple that moved to Paris and lived there for more than 15 years. We fell in love with this apartment back in 2009 and decided to buy it for ourselves. We live now in NY and travel back to Paris occasionally to stay and stay in this apartment or our other one.
Pompidou Escape Agency purchased this apartment in 2009
We were looking for a property that would fit the following description:
- In the Marais area
- In a building with an elevator
- Bright with a nice view
- Quiet - not facing the street
- Ideally with a separate bedroom
This was very hard to find so we looked for a long time before finding this property that fit those requirements and was a rare pearl. We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.
- The view on the back of the Pompidou center
- Quiet in the center of Paris - which is quite unique in this neighborhood
- In the heart of the Marais
- Bright - plenty of windows
- Elevator - again a tough find in many buildings of the Marais
- Decorated with personality (Tango theme)
Wonderful apartament. Very convenient location, you are in the center of everything. The apartament very comfortable, clean, just perfect. We were 4 people there, enough space. Thanks Ms Natasha and Mr Wissam, and also Madam Simic, they arranged our stay perfectly.
Overall, our family of four (two adults, two children, aged 9 and 7) enjoyed our stay at the Pompidou Escape. As the listing describes, it is superbly located. You can see Georges Pompidou Centre out from your window, you descend the stairs into a charming, cobblestone courtyard and into a street, Rambuteau, that is both charming and lively, with excellent food shopping (from bakeries and patisseries, fruit and veg vendors, Italian/Chinese/Lebanese/Greek takeout) and even a vegan restaurant next door! Nearby, are countless cafes, boutique shopping galore a few blocks east and north (closer to the Picasso Museum), the BHV department store and the Seine. We were blocks from the local metro, a few more to an RER station that was convenient to getting to the airport and out to Versailles. Despite its centrality, the apartment block itself was, though dark with some areas needed lighting, relatively peaceful and quiet, perfect after a day touring Paris.
Everything worked fairly effectively, including the TV, Wifi, microwave, showers, laundry, all highly significant for a family with children. Although the place sleeps 4, we did feel squished in the apartment, especially in the kitchen and 'dining' area (improvised with bar stools and the chair from the desk).
The owners and the concierge were courteous, an ease to deal with, and we encountered no obstacles in booking, in being greeted when we arrived and in departing. We'd highly recommend it this to a couple or a trio.
Great location to experience Paris like a local, in a lovely and safe neighborhood. The apartment is exactly as pictured on the website and perfect for two people. Fast wifi and well equipped kitchen. Do not forget the alarm clock, the apartment is so quiet that you will oversleep!!! We recommend a stay at the Pompidou Escape.
The apartment is very comfortable for 3 persons. Is perfectly located to go to all sites. Metro station is at 2 min walk, supermarket at 3 min walk and a lot of shops and bars at walking distance. Whissam and Natasha answered all our questions and were very kind.
The apartment is exactly as the photographies show and although the owners do not live in Paris, Madame Simics was a wonderful anfitrion.
We enjoyed very much our stay and surely we will recommend it.
This apartment was perfect for our short stay in Paris. It was very clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The location is fantastic, just 10 minutes walk from Notre Dame, where you can also catch one of the Hop-On/Hop-off bus tours (highly recommend doing one of these). The apartment is hidden away from the bustling city street, which has yummy Patisserie shops and a small supermarket that has everything you need. Souvenir shops and cafes are just around the back of the Pompidou Centre. The owners were great, answering all of my queries by phone and email promptly. I was nervous about booking this from Australia and having never used HomeAway before, but everything went smoothly. Brush up on your French because the concierge (a lovely, helpful lady) does not speak any English. At least learn introductions and how to say your departure day and times in French. It was great to experience life like a local, rather than staying in a Hotel. Easy access to the internet was much appreciated, as was the washing machine (take some pegs with you). I would definitely recommend this apartment.
The property is located right behind the Pompidou Center (which can be viewed from the apartment), on a bustling street full of gourmet shops in the heart of the Marais district. Distances walking below (as measured by Google Maps)
- Pompidou center: 70 meters
- Notre Dame: 12 min walk (can be viewed from the corner of the street)
- Louvre: 14 min walk
Other Activities: Gourmet cuisine, tango dancing
