3rd Arrondissement Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)
Exceptional Value, Bright, Spacious, Clean and centrally located, our guests have raved about this apartment ever since we opened 10 years ago.( Please browse Guest Comments to see for yourself) This gorgeous one-bedroom apartment of 55 square meters (600 sq. ft.) has undergone a complete renovation recently. It is located on rue Beranger, in the Third Arrondissement at the Place de la Republique, in the heart of Paris. Place de la Republique is a lively and bustling plaza with supermarkets, pharmacies, taxi stands, restaurants and everything else. Metro Republique is just steps away and is a hub for 4 metro lines, so you can reach any point of Paris with a short ride away.
If you dread the idea of schlepping your suitcases up a flight of narrow stairs as much as I do, then this ground floor apartment is ideal for you. ...and if you're a bit claustrophobic staying in a typical Paris hotel or studio/loft apartment (read tiny), then you'll appreciate the spaciousness and the high ceiling of this one. This apartment is located behind not one but two interior courtyards, so it's an oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. It is very safe as there is always plenty of shoppers and restaurant-goers about even quite late in the evening.
We've renovated this apartment by gutting it to bare walls and then rebuilt it tile by tile. It was done with the American traveller in mind, so it has all the comforts and conveniences you'd expect in a luxurious American apartment... the separate kitchen has a microwave , a refrigerator, dishwasher, 4 cook tops with oven, washer/ dryer as well as an eat-in area. The living room has a sofa and an arm-chair that folds out to sleep one, telephone, DSL Internet access and cable TV. The price is all inclusive, including the linens, so you won't get a surprise at the end of your trip. Indeed, this apartment would make an ideal stay for a couple, or a couple with a child.
The bedroom retains all the charms of a 19th Century mansion, with crown mouldings, fireplace, stain glass windows, 10 ft. ceiling, and original parquet floor. It has a queen-size bed and lots of closet space. In the tiled bathroom you can pamper yourself with a walk-in shower or a separate tub. This apartment can easily accommodate 3 persons. Please feel free to browse 'Guest Comments' below to get a feel of the apartment and get answers to some of the questions you may have. For your comfort, this is a SMOKE-FREE apartment. Children under ten years of age allowed with the permission of the owner. Please be advised that this is a self-catered limited service apartment. As such we will only provide linen service upon check-in, but not during your trip. We will have a contact person in case of any emergency. There is a binder with information on the use of appliances, tourist books on Parisien restaurants and sights to see. We will give you a web site if you need theater bookings, guided tours, etc.
Lastly, be sure to visit La Jeune Rue on rue du Vertbois, which is a leisurely 5 minute walk from the apartment. La Jeune Rue has been described as the intersection of delicious food and high design recently unveiled to great fanfare to the Parisien public. Please google recent New York Times and Wall Street Journal articles describing this new epicurean village.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRICES QUOTED ARE IN AMERICAN DOLLARS.

About The Owner
My wife and I fell in love with Paris the first time we visited in 1986, and ever since then, we have come back again and again to this magical city. We decided to buy an apartment in 2004. After several months of intense work, we were able to call our little corner of Paris home.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004
Why The Owner chose 3rd Arrondissement Le Marais
We love all of Paris but we are especially enchanted with Marais, with its many small boutiques, restaurants, one-of-a-kind stores. The apartment is within walking distance of the center of Marias, but is also close to the Metro Republique, where 5 metro lines intersect. It is therefore a hop and a scotch to all Paris.
