Wonderful space and the location is perfect
Very nice accommodation. Once it warmed up, it was cozy and in February that was a huge plus. Lots of late night noise from the flat above that was disruptive. A nicely appointed kitchen.
This apartment was perfect for exploring Paris for two weeks during winter. This was our second stay using the same rental company and local management agent and, as expected, everything was perfect. We loved the apartment - beautifully decorated, very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and quiet. The location was also perfect with many wonderful restaurants, cafes and shops. A lovely neighbourhood to explore and enjoy. A few Metro stops were also only a short walk away.
We recently spent two wonderful weeks in Paris at Picardie. This apartment was perfect for our visit. The reservation and payment process was easy to use and it was very helpful to have the management agent meet us at the apartment to explain everything. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and efficient with a great bed and bathroom. We loved the art work and decor that gave the apartment and extra touch and made it feel like home.
The location was perfect for us with the local markets and metro stations close by.
We highly recommend Picardie if you are lucky enough to be in Paris.
The apartment was very nice; perfect size for just my husband and myself. The location was fabulous. The building was great, though early morning noises due to garbage cans in courtyard. Would definitely stay there again. The bedroom was very comfortable, as was the bed. The rental company was very efficient and if there were problems or questions, were right there with an answer or assistance. No complaints.
We loved our stay in our Marais apartment. The apartment itself is wonderful: great bathroom, comfortable bed in a quiet bedroom, bright and large dining/livingroom and fabulous windows to the quiet courtyard below. The apartment was sparkling clean and having a clothes washer and hanging rack was a great bonus. We were in Paris in a heat wave and the apartment stayed nicely cool. The neighbourhood is perfect! Lots of restaurants, food shops/market (new Bio store opening as we were leaving) and clothing/shoe stores. Shelley's guidance and kind attention made our stay in Paris even better. This is a wonderful place to experience Paris as Parisians do. Check out La Boutique Extraordinaire and Cafe Pinson - just steps from the apartment. The only tiny downside was the noise, now and then, coming from the young North Americans above us. Can't wait to go back!
We had a terrific time staying at Picardie. It's inside a pretty cobbled courtyard and gets plenty of light yet no direct sun to overheat it. Our weather was sunny and perfect and we were able to keep the beautiful large windows open a bit for fresh air and that was all we needed to regulate the temperature. Nighttime was quiet and peaceful which we did not expect for such a bustling city.
The set-up in the apartment was great for the three of us, it could fit four nicely too. Two of us slept on the foldout couch the whole week which had all the linens we needed and was very comfortable. Our niece had the bedroom to herself and settled right in enjoying the nice bed and all that space. The bathroom was great, plenty of hot water and good pressure in the shower/tub and separate toilette which was nice.
All the appliances worked great. We appreciated having a washing machine and the heated towel rack and drying rack made it easy to pack light. Although we did not cook much we did bring food back from the shops and market often. We used the stove, microwave, kettle, coffee pot, dishwasher and refrigerator for our indoor picnics and loved having that convenience.
There are probably 10 or more restaurants within 2 blocks but it took us a while to notice some of them because they don't have big signs out front. Rue de Bretagne is one block away and lined with every kind of shop for cheese, butcher, deli, bakery, fruit and veg plus the great Marche de Enfants Rouges with the best crepes and galettes!
We used the metro a lot and there are three stops within 4 blocks walk so it was easy to get around. But, I'd recommend spending plenty of time in the neighborhood cafes, parks and shops. It not too heavily touristed and it really feels like you are living in Paris for a bit!
