Overview

4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This large studio is on one of the two islands in the very center of Paris. This apartment building was built in 1643 on the Seine. This is one of the best old world addresses in Paris.

The 369 year old building is on the Seine, and the apartment with a courtyard view, a total of 47m2. The studio is a good size, 37m2 downstairs and separate large comfortable 10m2 sleeping loft upstairs. The main room has 11 ft ceilings, tall windows with open wooden beams. Unlike most apartments this size, the bedroom has a large separate loft upstairs away from the living area. The loft has a low ceiling clearance but is easy to get around in this large area with plenty of storage for your luggage and can sleep three.

As you exit the building you're on the Seine once again. The river is beautiful and tranquil at all times of the year with the riverboats coming and going. A very special area of Paris.

The pictures enclosed tell all.

Please go to TripAdvisor and look at the map for this area for hotels. Click it and see the prices for this area and the size of room you really get for a hotel and their location is not on the river.

About Art Collins

My name is Art, I live full time in Manhattan and Fire Island and have been in NY for 22 years now, originally from San Diego, CA. I work hard to make this apartment nice. I am a finish carpenter and work on all my properties. I have other island properties to let if interested.

Art Collins purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Art Collins chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

Being on the island and walk on the river walk during the sunset, is the most beautiful place to end the day.

What makes this apartment unique

The unique situation about this apartment is that it is located on a very quiet courtyard 2nd floor. Once you exit the building your on the tree lined Seine. The butcher, bakery, cheese shop, wine shop, ATM, & convenience store, all on the island. One does not need to leave the island for daily supplies. The metro at Pont Marie, #7 line pink, just across the bridge, along with the large grocery store at St. Paul, is very close.

Excellent stay at Art's place on the Seine River

Excellent stay at Art's place on the Seine River
  • 5 of 5
Art's place on the Seine was wonderful. We were 3 ladies coming to Paris for sightseeing. Everything was so convenient. We could walk to so many attractions. It was also convenient for River Cruises down the Seine River. Paris is such a wonderful place to visit. The only difficult thing about the apartment was the stairs but if we had not had so much luggage we would have been fine. Apartment was so safe and immaculate. Thanks Art

Convenient, historic, comfortable

  • 5 of 5
What an adventure for us, mother, daughter, granddaughter. We stayed in the perfect location on an island in the Seine river in the historic district of Paris. Before arriving, we received e-mails with specific instructions on the workings of the apartment, telephone numbers, directions and maps. Francois met us at the apartment as arranged and was most helpful in orienting us to the apartment and the area. The apartment was exactly as described in the Home Away listing. Clean? Spotless is the right word. Quiet, comfortable and an easy one flight up from a secure cobblestone courtyard. When we entered the apartment, we were so pleased at the tall beamed ceiling with two tall windows that opened to the courtyard below. The antique wooden cabinet was spacious and added to the homey feeling. The kitchen was loaded with everything one could possibly need for cooking (or drinking). The washer and dryer were luxuries and we could easily have taken less clothing with us. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure was surprisingly very good. The loft bed was cozy and very comfortable. Ceiling is low, but was not a problem for us. The sofa bed was as comfortable as the loft bed. Little extras were everywhere and reflected the owners concern for the guests comfort...umbrellas, extra batteries, abundant literature and books, etc. Immediately after leaving the front main door of the apartment building is the Seine. We walked all around the Ile St Louis and looked at the shops and cafes and restaurants (we loved the Aux Anisetiers Du Roy). This lovely historic area is a step back in time. We meandered daily over the walking bridge to the Ile de la Cite, with the Notre Dame cathedral in front of us and then beside us as we made our way to the Metro. We bought 5 day passes for the Metro. We toured the catacombs (not my idea) and talk about history. The tour we bought online before we left cost a little more, but was well worth it. We took the Metro everywhere...Eiffel Tower, Montmartre (happened upon a lovely wine fest below Sacre Coeur and have the wine glasses to prove it), Versailles, Louvre, Hard Rock Cafe for the granddaughter (okay, for all of us). The Metro puts every site in Paris within your reach. The owner, Art, was always available to answer questions before we left and during our stay. He is very thoughtful and considerate of his guests. We would absolutely recommend this apartment to our relatives and friends and would love to stay there again.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfectly located apartment. It really is in the center of everything, and grocery chopping is very nearby.

The apartment would benefit from the addition of two comfortable chairs, but in that location, you are not often in the apartment. The washer and dryer are very convenient.

Great Location for exploring Paris in style!

  • 4 of 5
We visited Paris for the first time last August. We explored locations online, hoping to find a quiet location where we could both rest and have easy access to the sights. We enjoy apartment stays because it offers a sense of really living there versus being the naive travelers that we are.
Art's apartment is extremely well located on the river, with little shops and restaurants close by. The apartment offered privacy within a building where you could hear wafting European music from other apartments without running into other people or being disturbed. There is a nice kitchen for simple meal preparation and a living area with tall windows, overlooking an interior courtyard. Be prepared for a little stair climbing with your luggage, though. There are no elevators.
The apartment has a loft bed space that is comfortable but not for the tall or those who have trouble with steep stairs. This is compact space and every square inch is maximized to provide all the accoutrements of a full living space. My husband is 6 foot, 5 inches so he had to crawl into the loft bed space. Once there, however, it was quiet and cozy and we were able to get needed rest.
When you exit the apartment building, the view of the river is breath-taking. The island has a nice balance of isolation and activity. It is easy to get around the island on foot to get groceries, souvenirs, food and the famous ice cream that we sampled nightly. Very little advanced planning is needed because the boats that transport to famous sites is close by and no reservations are required. Notre Dame Cathedral is walking distance.
We enjoyed our stay a great deal. The apartment had an authentic, simple Paris feeling although I was dying to do a little redecorating to amp up the sophistication of the place. Nonetheless, we were happy with our stay and very glad that we chose this location for our first trip because it met all our needs beautifully.

Nice change from hotels

  • 4 of 5
Location is tops on Ile St. Louis on the Seine across a bridge from The Marais and another to Notre Dame, 5th Arr. and walkable to B. St. Germain and the 6th Arr. The island is village like with lots of places to eat, nosh, shop or buy Berthillon ice cream. Near 2 Metro stops. The apt. is through a courtyard behind a non-descript door from the street. Art's apt. is cozy, well equipped, with small litchen, washer and dryer. Bathroom is small and could use update, which is supposed to be in his plans. Art is in New York, so easy to speak to for more details. He is very nice to deal with. The studio is great for 2, but the loft is better suited to little kids. Note: This apt. is not suitable for people with handicaps.

Paris Parfait!

  • 5 of 5
The flat was a superb fit for the 2 of us, both retired teachers. The 1 flight of stairs up to the quite spacious studio was no problem, as we packed simply, each with just a roller bag carry on. That was all that was needed for our week there, as the flat has a washing machine and a separate dryer, a rarity for European flats. The queen size bed up the few stairs to the loft was super comfy, as was the couch on the main level that converts to a double sized bed. The Metro station is a few blocks away. There are many small cafes, bakeries, and shops along the way between the flat and the station where you can obtain just about anything you would need. As mentioned by previous reviewers, the flat is fully equipped and very secure and quiet in addition to being lovely.
Outside is the crown jewel of the flat - a most lovely neighborhood of 400 year old buildings, located on L’Isle St. Louis, in the center of the river Seine, just a 2 block walk to the bridge that leads to L’Isle de la Cite where Notre Dame Cathedral is located. Across from Notre Dame is the Batobus dock, a river taxi service that goes between the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay, Eiffel Tower, etc., which is a fun alternative to the Metro, as you can see Paris as you glide by on the river.
Working with owner Art was seamless. We received very detailed information in the instructions his greeter emailed prior to our departure, and quick to response to our email questions. Art even called us mid-week at the flat to see how things were going there and ask if we had any concerns! He has thought of every small detail in creating the perfect lovely home away from home. We felt like Parisians rather than tourists there. I will assuredly stay there the next time I visit Paris!

Map

The building is on the Seine facing the Marais in the very centre of Paris. This location is very close to the Pont Marie bridge over the river.

There is also a beautiful tree lined pedestrian water front walk right in front of the building.

The island is away from the hustle of Paris street traffic. This is a very prime location for quiet walks around the island.
