ARCHITECT'S DUPLEX LOFT IN THE HEART OF THE MARAIS

3rd Arrondissement Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom, sleeps 4, private garden

Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum (reopening Summer 2013), galleries, restaurants and shops. This newly renovated house has a bedroom with office space upstairs, a bathroom with a large shower, an open kitchen, a dining area and a living space with a convertible sofa that has a very comfortable mattress. It sits tucked away in the quiet second courtyard behind a 17th century hôtel particulier and has its own garden space with outdoor furniture. You’ll love the light streaming in through the glass roof and the huge sliding glass doors that look out onto your private cobblestone outdoor space.

You enter the apartment by going through the large cobblestone courtyard of the landmark Hôtel de Cornuel, through the building into the calm second courtyard and then through a hallway that leads to the ground floor duplex loft.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, multi-function oven, induction cooktop, refrigerator with freezer and all of the cooking equipment you’ll need. There’s also an all in one washer/dryer.

The living room has a comfortable convertible sofa with a real thick mattress for two that you’ll definitely get your sleep on if there are four of you. There’s a flat screen TV and of course free WiFi and telephone. Feel free to browse the books in the huge bookcase next to the stairs. The furniture has been carefully chosen and boasts some design classics such as the colorful Eames chairs in the dining area or the Noguchi prism table next to the sofa.

The all white bathroom has a 90cmx90cm shower, a washbasin, a toilet and plenty of storage.

The bedroom is upstairs and has a Queen size bed (160cm x 200cm), a desk and storage for your clothes and luggage. There’s also a plush, leather Eames lounge chair with foot rest to ease your tired feet from all of the walking. A curtain can be pulled to close off the sleeping area if you need to sleep in the dark. You can also watch TV on a flat screen at the foot of the bed.

The lushly planted outdoor space is the icing on the cake. It’s private and makes for a lovely view. It’s equipped with a table and chairs as well as lighting that makes outdoor dining a pleasure.

Clean sheets and towels are provided.

The weekly cleaning fee is 70 Euros. Extra cleaning services are available.

A baby bed is available upon request.

Vous pouvez aussi regarder la télé sur un écran plat au pied du lit.

My husband and I are both architects living between New York and Paris. I grew up in Germany, England, the US and moved to France to study architecture. I also have a Masters of Architecture from Columbia University in New York. We have two children who are currently enrolled at the International School of Brooklyn.

Jessica Label-Blandin purchased this apartment in 2000

We bought our property in the year 2000 and transformed it into an architecture studio with a large duplex apartment for ourselves above. With our move to New York and our trans-atlantic traveling, we decided to transform the rear part of the office into an independent apartment.

When we first visited our place, we immediately fell in love with it. It's tucked away in a second courtyard where we wake up to hear birds singing. It has a country feel to it although it's in the middle of the city. The building you have to go through to enter the second courtyard is a landmark 'hôtel particulier' and both courtyards still have the original large cobblestones. There's a huge tree in the private courtyard that the rental looks out onto. It's very green, quiet and bucolic, which gives us an exceptional quality of life, being also in the heart of Paris. It's a modern, contemporary space in the heart of one of the oldest landmark areas of Paris.

Amazing Find!

  • 5 of 5
This property is amazing! The neighborhood is completely charming with plenty of interesting and friendly people, boutiques, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The apartment is extremely clean, bright and cheery, beautifully designed, and provides everything that one would need to feel at home. The operating manuals were very helpful for using the appliances. The owner, Jessica, was also super helpful and sent detailed directions, recommendations for the area...where to shop, eat, and how to get around. The sleeping loft is perfect with the glass ceiling and the view of the beautiful trees above. The bathroom is an excellent size, with plenty of hot water in the spacious shower. We used the kitchen for 90% of our meals and lacked nothing to prepare gourmet food.

We completely enjoyed the sweet, plant-filled outside patio and spent lots of time there at night enjoying wine from the local stores and the small twinkling lights. I traveled with my sister to visit my niece and her boyfriend who live in Paris. He actually proposed marriage to her on the patio and we planned the entire Parisian wedding during our stay.

When traveling, i tend to avoid touristy places, however, I highly recommend the truffle-stuffed pasta at Angelina. The best pasta dish of my life!

A great ride to/from the airport was provided by Blacklane Limousines. I booked them as well for my niece's wedding. If you plan on getting married in Paris, I would also highly recommend David Bacher as your photographer.

My stay was actually for a week in March 2013, and I am just getting around to writing the review. If you are traveling to Paris, you would feel at home in this perfect little slice of heaven. Thank you Jessica and Phillipe for creating a great place for four adults to enjoy a week of family time.

Quiet, cozy loft

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this treehouse for a week to celebrate the New Year in Paris... The Marais location (our favorite arrondisement for lodging) is central and calm, as it is tucked away behind two courtyards. The small apartment, designed by owners/architects, has a full wall of windows and skylights that brighten the place and give you a view into the trees. It feels much larger than it is; we hosted five guests for aperitifs one evening with no problem. Jessica and Philippe were available and affable.

Super Paris Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We rented this amazing little apartment for our first Christmas in Paris. And, as a family we thought it was Perfect. The layout has everything you need to support an active trip. The apartment was clean and neat. Jessica was wonderful and easy to work with and the location is ideal with plenty of small restaurants and food stores within a block or so. We even found a place to carry out coffee for our kids! We highly recommend this apartment. And, hope to book it again ourselves in the future.

Perfect Pied de Terre

  • 5 of 5
Great loft, couldn't ask for more. Wonderful bed in loft. Perfect for just watching the autumn leaves fall. Even the rain couldn't dampen our wonderful stay.
Wonderful location, felt like a local not just a tourist.
The only negative was that it came to end . Can't wait to go back.

Amazing stay in the middle of it all

  • 5 of 5
Gorgeously designed, with the obvious fine touch of an architect. Location couldn't be any better, right in the middle of trendy le Marais and a stone's throw from so many of the best shops, restaurants, bars, etc.. Love the outdoor space too -- beautiful!

Fun apartment in a vibrant neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5
This upbeat apartment was a great alternative to trying to squeeze into a hotel room or two and is in a great location. Plenty of cafes and shops around and close to several Velib bicycle rental stations which ended up being our primary source of transportation and it's fun! We shared the two beds with our 2 tween kids which was fine for now. It would be helpful to have some instructions on the washer/dryer and the microwave but there are 3 laundromats within a few blocks which was very convenient. The apartment is clean and quiet as it is set back thru two courtyards which eliminated any street noise. Jessica was very easy to work with and her communication was truly helpful. I'm ready to go back right now!

Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum (reopening Summer 2013), galleries, restaurants and shops.

The nearest metro stations at about equal distance are St Sébastien Froissart (line 8) and Rambuteau (line 11). It's a 10 minute walk to République (lines 3, 5, 8, 9 and 11) and to Hôtel de Ville (lines 1 and 11). The 29 bus is a block away and the 96 (that takes you directly to the Luxemburg garden and to Odéon is a 7 minute walk away.
