4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description
This meticulously-maintained, stylish, architect-owned apartment puts you right where you want to be at the junction of two famous historical districts--Le Marais and La Bastille--in the heart of romantic Paris!
The 34 sq. meter (375 sq. ft.) second-floor apartment (with full-size elevator) is handsomely-furnished and perfect for couples, individuals, or a couple of friends wanting a vibrant Paris holiday from a charming, quiet perspective.
The owners' complete floor-to-ceiling renovation included eliminating a dividing wall to fashion a bright and roomy open studio featuring a fully-equipped modern kitchen, solid oak flooring and ancient wooden beams. The modern remodel and 1790's original beams make a stunning combination!
The elegant modernist décor will delight the artist/decorator in you while the ancient bones of the building will satisfy your inner historian. Renters report that the handsome, spacious, light-infused pied-à-terre delights them in every way, especially as they fall asleep beneath centuries-old beams--10 feet above--from the comfort of an extra-firm modern queen bed.
You will be a resident of a private cobblestone pedestrian-only passageway suffused with history and exceptional charm, even by Paris standards. (The photo chosen by Airbnb to illustrate the Bastille neighborhood was taken at our door: each day tourists and Parisians alike discover and photograph the hidden Cour Damoye. Several movies have even been filmed in the famous passageway.)
The wisteria-adorned sanctuary--gated nightly to insure tranquility--is steps from the bustle of the city, the Bastille Opera, world-class restaurants, hot new bistros, sidewalk cafés, the Musée Picasso, the Musée Carnavalet and the biggest roving open-air food market in Paris! (So, will you use your gourmet kitchen for microwaving specialties from the food emporia surrounding you, or for preparing from-scratch meals from the fabulous outdoor market?)
A Foodie Fantasy: Many widely-lauded new eateries are nearby. A few examples are: Septime (and its new wine bar), Bones, Au Passage, le Vieux Chene, Paris/Hanoi, Café des Musées, le Verre Volé, Bistrot Paul Bert, Le '6' Paul Bert, Pierre Sang at Oberkampf and la Cave de l'Insolite. Then there are famous old standbys, also minutes away, such as Bofinger and l'Ambroisie. In March, 2013, the most famous three-star chef, Alain Ducasse, opened his first and only chocolate 'factory' and boutique, one minute from our apartment on rue de la Roquette!
A major Métro and bus hub are also a minute away, so getting anywhere in Paris is as easy as un, deux, trois!
We are happy to welcome you to the delights of our neighborhood and to our beautiful Perfect Paris Rental.

Why Melinda & Arnie chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais
We fell in love with the Cour Damoye by chance one day many years ago. We thought it was the most magical street in Paris. When an apartment came available we couldn't resist!
What makes this apartment unique
This is a gated cobblestone private street right in the heart of Paris!
Guestbook comments from the manager
We are in our 40's and this was our "2nd Honeymoon" in Paris. We spent the first one in Paris also but at a 5-star hotel. It cost us a fortune and although it was pretty elegant, it was cold and fussy and expensive. We wanted to try something different this time and we both think that we hit the jackpot!! We loved the amazing combination of old ceiling beams and modern kitchen and even two Tolomeo reading lamps. We're designers and we have those same classic lamps in our home! Our hearts were won right there. The amazing overall design is an award winner, the space has been so well used and so amazingly planned and it is filled with light. It is really really amazing. Then the little cobblestone alleyway is to die for, we thought we'd died and gone to heaven when we first saw it. The location, right there in the heart of Paris and next to an amazing food market every Sunday is very cool. Maybe we'll tell our friends about this find or can we keep this amazing secret place in Paris just for us? Melinda and arnie, we love your apartment!! We'll be back for many more honeymoons.
