This absolutely charming first floor apartment is situated in the Rue de Turenne, close to the magnificent Place des Vosges, at the heart of the Marais. This is considered one of Europe's most beautiful city courtyards with its symmetrically placed brick pavers and lovely gardens. The apartment looks out onto the beautiful Rue Turenne and 2 fun bistros through expansive windows. The Rue des Francs-Bourgeois, with its trendy boutiques, galleries, cafes and restaurants, and the Musee Carnavalet is just around the corner, as is the Rue des Rosiers with its delicatessens and many exclusive boutiques. All are just a few minutes' walk away. Also within a short walk is the Musee Picasso, a great outdoor food market, the Marche des Enfants Rouges and Richard Lenoir open-air markets, Pompidou Centre, Ile St. Louis, and Notre Dame. The location is simply extraordinary.
The apartment is up only one flight of stairs and has been decorated and furnished with great taste and style by its interior designer owner The main salon features beautifully refinished hardwood floors, a traditional fireplace with mantle, and authentic beamed ceilings. There is a zinc-topped dining table with comfortable seating for six on the opposite side of the salon from the fireplace. A double-sized day bed faces the fireplace and television screen. The apartment is also equipped with wireless internet, a CD player, a safe, and an ice machine.
The owners have opened a rare outdoor atrium up in the center of the apartment which allows guests to enjoy their morning coffee or an evening cocktail under the Paris sky with a view of the Paris rooftops. This atrium allows for an incredible amount of light in the apartment and is accessed off of the 2nd bedroom and kitchen. Such outdoor space is very unusual in the center of Paris!!

The cafes and bright awnings give a gay Parisian flare to this corner location. I find it delightful, in fact, to open the living room windows and not only bask in the amazing French light, but watch the French regalia of horses and riders that parade by on most French holidays. The three apartment balcony windows also provide a front row seat for all the “goings on” in the plaza below. It’s quite amusing and fun!
It is a stunning unit, position perfect, and beautifully designed and finished! I will continue to reccomend it to my friends and family as a wonderful Parisian Haven to visit!!
Family of 4 including two teens stayed here for 4 days. The lead-up to the stay was well-handled, we knew exactly when and how to meet for the keys. It was seamless. The flat itself is a charming, old-world residence. It is very well furnished with strong WiFi. We didn't watch TV, so I can't comment on that, but there is a flat-screen TV. Dishwasher, washer-dryer, 2 bathrooms make for convenience.
The location is unbeatable. There are restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and convenience stores within a block. Place des Vosges is a few blocks. We walked to Notre Dame in ~ 15 mins. There is a Metro about 10 mins walk. Definitely staying at a place like this for location!
The owner leaves a nice book of places to eat, things to do, places to see. The returning of the keys is also seamless!
Due to all that I mentioned above, I HIGHLY recommend this place and we will definitely stay here again.
This is truly a fabulous apartment located in one one the best locations in Paris. On our Europe trip this last August, With my wife and our two daughters we spent 5 glories nights in Paris and staying in this lovely apartment certainly enhanced our Paris experience. The place is tastefully decorated in a French country motif with some antique pieces. It was very comfortable and well appointed with everything one would need in a home away from home. We would be happy to stay here again on our future trip to Paris.
The absolute perfect holiday apartment! It was even more lovely in person (and the photos are terrific), very spacious and delightfully decorated. You can tell that much love and care was put into this property. My mother and I didn’t want to leave (and we can’t wait to plan another trip to definitely stay here again). The location was close to metro, wonderful shops, fantastic cafes, and a literal hop skip and a jump from the beautiful Place Des Vosges park. It was very clean, tidy and well-maintained. Holly, the owner, was a dream to work with, she is very organized and helpful. The wifi was so helpful and free phone calls too. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to Paris, you won’t be disappointed.
This was just as shown. It is decorated in French country so the feel is just what one would expect..very comfortable, but only for 3 adults..the trundle is only good for a child. The greeter was super, very helpful. Would return again!
We had an ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS TIME staying in your beautiful Paris apartment. It could not have been more perfect and it truly exceeded our expectations. You’re a marvelous decorator with a great eye for detail and whimsy. We appreciated everything- from the beautiful armoires and mirrors to the bed’s headboard and all the little accent pieces. It was all so cozy, wonderful and unique- a real dream come true ! The location was marvelous, the neighborhood was charming and we loved being able to walk to so many restaurants and wonderful sites. I think this is my favorite area of Paris! We can’t wait to come back and stay at your apartment again! We will definitely recommend your apartment to all our friends.
Stayed in this lovely apartment May 2014. We LOVED the location. Holly, the owner, was helpful and easy to work with. We were two couples staying for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. The second bedroom is right beside the main with a thin wall separating with a sliding door, so not very private. You also have to access via the main bedroom or through the courtyard. Luckily we were very comfortable with the couple we were traveling with. The apartment obviously has a decorators touch. There are a lot of collectables within the apartment that was sometimes challenging to work around from a space perspective, but lovely none the less. Across the street is a lovely boulangerie for fresh croissants for breakfast etc. Superb restaurants in the area. Holly was very helpful in recommending some outstanding restaurants. A property manager met us at the apartment to acquaint us. The Marais area feels safe, has great atmosphere and shopping. The apartment was also well stocked with dishes, flatware , excellent WIFI and free calls to the US and Canada.
