HEART OF THE MARAIS! QUEEN BED,LARGE BATH, EXTRAS A+ REVIEWS!! WALK2EVERYWHERE!

4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4

Old-world charm blends with modern amenities for truly the best of both worlds! You can unwind after a day of walking Paris' beautiful streets with a long soak in the oversized tub hand-tiled with mosaic.. enjoy an espresso at the kitchen counter.. or have a light evening meal of cheese, bread and fruit while relaxing in the full-size dining area - or just use the large table to spread out guide books and maps to plan your next day's adventures.

Located on the 2nd floor, with elevator (facing a quiet courtyard) antique furnishings from around France join modern pieces of extreme comfort (full-size sofa bed with Simmons mattress). Plus, courtesy high-tech perks (a loaner cellphone with a local number, a printer to print boarding passes and maps, high-speed internet and more.

Walk to Place Des Vosges, Ile St Louis, Bastille: This perfectly situated Paris apartment is less than a 5 minute walk to some of the city's most desirable locations. Only a block and a half away sits the majestic entry to Place Des Vosges, home to Victor Hugo and other fixtures of Parisian history.

Still twilight at 1030 at night, summer evenings are dazzling. In winter, holiday lights twinkle and the many cafes offer a warm place to share a glass of wine or a delicious meal. Our outstanding heating system ensures cozy evenings despite the ancient construction! Ile St Louis - home to some of Paris' oldest homes - is just across a small bridge, and museums abound (Picasso, Pompidou, Carnavalet and more). The Bastille offers twice a week farmers markets, and the restaurants within walking distance can sustain you for days.

Extra Amenities - Paris Charm PLUS modern comfort: Super comfortable as a base from which to explore the neighborhood and the city, there are many places in this apartment to relax - a real bonus if you are staying more than 5 days and want to truly settle in! The living area features a modern sofa with antique chairs reupholstered with fabrics from the top French designer, Lelievre. The dining area offers a place to enjoy meals you bring in or prepare yourself, or simply a spot to map out the next day's sightseeing. Barstools originally designed for a bar near Strasbourg sit at the kitchen counter, equipped with a cappuccino machine and a variety of teas.The bathroom is a true rarity in Paris - with double sinks as well as separate shower and tub areas. A couple (or well-behaved family:) can easily and comfortably get ready for the day. And when you return, if your feet are sore from walking the beautiful streets of Paris, the tub fills quickly with piping hot water for a relaxing soak!

(note: Bed photos blurry. New ones coming!)

Easy traveling and cost-saving bonuses: You may choose to completely 'switch off' while on your Paris vacation, but if you need to stay in touch with work or family, we make it as easy as possible to do so affordably - and without interrupting your holiday.

The apartment phone offers free calls to landlines in the UK, Australia and EU countries - calls to both fixed and mobile numbers in the US and Canada are also free of charge. High-speed internet and wifi are also included in the price as is cable TV (with CNN and BBC for English-speakers in search of news).. We also offer you a loaner cellphone with a French SIM card - all you need to do is buy a recharge ticket at one of the many kiosks around the city, and save on roaming charges from you home provider. You will also find a courtesy printer to use for boarding passes and reservations.

The apartment is perfectly located in the Marais district, just a block from the charming square Place the Volges. Alexis was great communicating all the details and gave tons of helpful suggestions. The apartment is well equipped and very quiet. We hope to rent the apartment soon again. Thanks Alexis!

Wonderful place to stay in the Marais to enjoy all of Paris

We just returned from a 1 week stay at this fabulous apartment that is right in the midst of everything Paris to offer, wonderfully equiped, extremely clean, comfortable and very quiet. Although it is on a main street, it faces a courtyard and is so peaceful that you hear absolutely nothing. It is everything and more as described. The bookshelves are loaded with up to date books on Paris and the surrondings. We walked everywhere (about 10 miles each day) and only needed to jump on the Metro twice. Anyone who chooses this lovely apartment is in for a terrific treat. Everything you need is directly outside the door. You cannot go wrong renting it and the owner is a gem who is always ready to answer questions and provide a wealth of information before and during your stay.

A wonderful retreat in the heart of a very hip district

We spent 5 glorious days in this beautiful apartment which is in the heart of the Marais district. The apartment was incredibly well equipped - the best appliances, great pots if you are inclined to cook, Sunday best dishes and glasses and best of all, a Nespresso espresso machine. The bathroom was equally well equipped with lots of fluffy towels, bathrobes and soaps and shampoo. The owner left a bottle of wine for us, which we enjoyed during our stay. Within two blocks you can find great shopping for clothing, food, fruit and veggies and wine. There are many fantastic bistros within easy walking distance - we tried the White Gorilla which was elegant, Chez Paul which was very traditional French bistro with great prices and excellent food and Les Vins des Pyrenees which is just a couple of blocks away and also had great food and a beautiful interior salon. It is also a very short walk across Pont Sully to Ile de Saint Louis where there are many great restaurants. We ate at Les Caveuses, which was the best food and service we had in Paris! All of these bistros were fantastic, with friendly service and great food. We walked to all the sites from the apartment and at the end of a long day of visiting museums, galleries and of course shopping, we were grateful to relax with a glass of wine and some fromage in our sweet little apartment.
The pictures on the website do not do the apartment justice - it is much nicer than it looks. The owner called us on the land line after we arrived to make sure that everything was ok, and the housekeeper was very prompt in meeting us and kindly allowed us to store our luggage because we arrived early. We have rented many houses and apartments on this website and this was one of the best for the location and the price. We will definitely rent this apartment the next time we are in Paris.

Walked everywhere!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Got a great feel for the area, and walked everywhere. Very central, near charming old neighborhoods. The building is located on a wide busy street, and the entry is a plain door, nothing fancy. The apartment itself, however, is very quiet and nicely furnished as shown in the photos. We never saw or heard any neighbors. The bath is luxuriously large and the kitchen is modern and well equipped. It was great to unpack for two weeks and there was closet/drawer space for everything. WiFi worked very well. We were also very pleased with the owner's recommendation for a private taxi to the airport. The driver was 100% reliable for a very early pickup.

The PERFECT Paris apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 16, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
When I say this is the perfect Paris apartment, I am not exaggerating. The listing is absolutely accurate. The photos show the color and warmth of the apartment, but being there and relaxing in this extremely clean, well-maintained property is beyond anything a photo could possibly show.

Alexis, the owner is charming, helpful, and so welcoming. I have only "met" her by email, but she sent lists of restaurants, places to go, things to see, and how to make Paris our home while there. Her hints for taking on the city are so helpful as are the guidebooks she has there for guests to use. She truly wants her home to be YOUR home.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted at a nearby restaurant and taken to the apartment, where we were made familiar with everything there. It was a lovely welcome, making us feel confident about using everything and staying there. We were even given a phone number to call in Paris, should we have a problem or questions.

A big 3-ring binder answers every question one could possibly have about the property from how to use the washing machine, to how to make a cup of espresso, to how to use the elevator...yes, there is an elevator! What a blessing that is after a long day walking around the City of Lights. There is a big screen TV, which honestly we didn't watch much in spite of its English speaking channels.

The location is perfect with a taxi center and the Metro close by. It is in a safe and convenient area with a small grocery store next door and the Bastille a couple of blocks away where one can visit the market 2x/week. The fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and cheeses, and gorgeous fresh flowers are spectacular whether to buy or photograph. Follow Alexis's suggestions for restaurants and nearby shops. They are all brilliant, well-tested suggestions.

We have rented apartments in other countries, but nothing compares with this. I feel so lucky to have found it via a friend. I would never stay in a hotel after having been here. My husband and I are returning "home" to "our" apartment in Paris in the spring of 2014. We can't wait.

I encourage you to book quickly as this gem of a place goes very, very quickly.
