4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Studio Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious studio apartment in the heart of Paris

Located in one of the most fashionable areas of the city with museums, art galleries, shopping, historical architecture and beautiful parks at your doorstep, this stylish penthouse apartment is a gem that combines modern comforts in an environment steeped in history. It has the rare combination of being located in the heart of the city, in the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris, and on the 6th and top floor with an elevator (up to the 5th floor) of a beautiful building which gives the apartment sweeping views over the rooftops of the city and of numerous monuments in the distance, including the Eiffel Tower. The street the apartment is on was created in the 1100s and is one of the most beautiful in the city. The apartment is air-conditioned, with a fully-equipped kitchen, modern bathroom, and separate clothes washer and clothes dryer.

The apartment was fully renovated in late 2012. The bathroom, kitchen, and all the appliances are brand new, while the original elements of the apartment have been carefully restored, including the antique terracotta floors, and beautiful 18th century oak beams. The apartment is flooded with light due to its southern exposure and two large skylights. The window is equipped with blackout shades and the two large skylights have remote-controlled motorized exterior shades that allow you to easily keep the light out for mornings when you want to sleep late or go to bed early as you adjust to the time change.

The street and neighborhood are full of restaurants, art galleries, and in particular numerous designer clothing boutiques. The shops and restaurants on the street and surrounding area have the distinction of being open on Sundays, which is rare in Paris, keeping the area full of life, and making conveniences such as grocery stores available 7 days a week. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum (the museum of the history of Paris), the beautiful Place des Vosges, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk from the apartment to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes through the heart of the city directly to numerous monuments and sites, such as the Musée du Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe. A set of English language architectural walking tours is provided with maps and photographs.

The antique terracotta floor in bathroom is complemented with pale white glass mosaic tiles on the walls. The smoked-glass window in the bathroom provides both privacy and ample natural light in addition to the embedded ceiling lighting and above-mirror light. Electrical outlets in the bathroom allow you to plug in rechargeable shavers and toothbrushes (an outlet head adapter is provided - please make sure your appliances function on European 240 volt circuits), and a hairdryer and magnifying mirror are also provided.

The studio has two sleeping areas: a full-size bed (140 cm – between a full and queen size bed) in a loft space under one of the skylights (where you can gaze at the night sky from bed or close the electric exterior shutters for complete darkness). Additionally, there is a large and very comfortable sofa bed (160 cm – between a queen and king size bed) with a thick mattress that feels just like a comfortable traditional bed. 2 guests are asked to use one bed. The nightly charge for a 3rd guest also applies to 2 guests who use two separate beds. There is an antique mirrored wardrobe with hangars and drawers.

The glass cabinets and white stone countertop in the kitchen conceal a fully equipped kitchen, including a dishwasher, combination microwave/oven, refrigerator with wine rack, espresso machine, cook top with an aeration hood above it that is perfect for picking up fresh food at local markets or nearby grocers and enjoying in the apartment. It has a dining table expandable for seating up to 4. The kitchen is equipped with plates, glasses, flatware, wineglasses, pots, pans, a toaster and an espresso machine.

A clothes washing machine and separate clothes dryer are in the apartment and available for stays of 7 days or more, as well as an iron and ironing board, giving you complete laundry facilities within the apartment.

The apartment has a HD flat screen television with hundreds of cable channels, including numerous English language news stations such as CNN and BBC. Unlimited high-speed wifi connection is provided, as is a telephone with free international calls to all numbers in the United States, Canada, and landlines in Europe and several other countries.

You will be met upon arrival at the apartment and given a full explanation of how to get the most out of your stay in the apartment as well as assistance in getting oriented to the neighborhood.

The apartment is a non-smoking no-pets apartment.

Wine and flowers are provided upon arrival, as are all linens and towels.

*An adjacent penthouse studio is also available that can sleep an additional 2 people for couples or families traveling together who want to stay in the same building (VRBO # 439890)

About Michael

The owner is an architect and author who specializes in renovating historic buildings in the heart of Paris. He has written extensively about the architecture of Paris, including well-known guides to the architecture of the city.

Why Michael chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

I fell in love with this property because of its incredible location in the heart of the city on a beautifully picturesque street, combined with the historic charm of the surrounding Marais neighborhood (with its famous food and fashion boutiques and museums). Add to that the fact that there is an elevator (only 1 in 200 buildings in this historic area have elevators) and that it has sweeping views over the city and I could not resist purchasing it.

What makes this studio unique

Location. Surrounded by museums, incredible food, fashion boutiques, and quintessential old-world charm. Beautiful quiet building with the rarity of having an elevator and sweeping views over the city from its top floor location.

delightful, comfortable, oh-so-well-designed and equipped studio with a view

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough good things about this apartment (and its friendly and helpful owner), and would not hesitate to stay there again on my next trip to Paris. I selected this apartment because of the array of wonderful amenities, its location, and the rooftop view, as well as the glowing reviews by other travelers, and was not disappointed. There are so many thoughtful touches within this apartment. The sleek and well-equipped kitchenette (complete with Nespresso machine), heated towel rack, sizeable tiled shower, Miele washer and dryer, very comfortable sofa bed with ample room for two, high-quality linens, a hairdryer, a power strip with US outlets for charging batteries, and a host of other details made for a very comfortable stay. The apartment was very clean and in an excellent location for tourists. Owner Michael was so helpful, providing detailed information on everything within the apartment (as well as recommendations for the surrounding neighborhood including printed guides within the apartment), and kindly arranged for return taxi service to the airport for our morning departure.

The windows and natural lighting in this apartment are especially nice: two skylights that let in the sunshine, yet can be full closed off, a bathroom window that can be opened for ventilation with privacy, as well as more widely for a cross-breeze, and a south-southwest-facing window in the main room that overlooks charming Marais rooftops - lots of terra cotta chimney pots and patinaed copper and one morning, even an iconic black cat sunbathing a rooftop across the street. Watching the morning light change over the Marais rooftops and chimney pots was an enchanting way to start each day, and I also loved the silhouetted skylight against the subtle glow from the city at night (and yes, La Tour Eiffel, off in the distance to the far right).

Paris apartment ... could not have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Paris was wonderfully enhanced by this lovely apartment on the top floor of a cozy building on a cobblestoned, landscaped small street in the Marais ... with a view of the Eiffel Tower ... it could not have been more perfect. We found nothing lacking in the booking and communication with Michael, the owner ... very accommodating to our schedule. The apartment was clean and well maintained with many nice details which made our stay enjoyable, such as the modern bath and galley kitchen ... (loved the Nespresso each morning) ... the comfortable sofabed, windows that allowed a nice breeze through the apartment, and of course the eclectic mix of a modern space with classic touches such as mirrors throughout and the antique armoir ... beautiful and functional. We found the Marais location to be convenient to transportation to major Paris sites. The street, with numerous small shops and cafes, was busy ... so it was easy and fun to immerse ourselves into the culture of this Paris arrondissement. We felt safe, even returning at night. We would not hesitate to book this apartment on a future visit.

Celebration in Paris

  • 5 of 5
Our studio was outstanding! We were met by Laurent who showed us the ins and outs of the studio. A nice bottle of wine and flowers greeted us as well. We absolutely loved the neighborhood that provided great eateries and shopping along with being quiet at night.
The studio is very clean and the pull out is comfortable. We stayed for seven nights so we had use of the washer/dryer which made it great as we continued our travels for an additional week. We would definitely stay here again.

The place to be in Paris

  • 5 of 5
There were 6 in our party, so we rented this loft and a one bedroom in this 200 year old building in the center of the old Jewish quarter and 5 minutes from the St. Paul Le Marias metro. Our host Michael is an architect and perfectionist, and it shows in every detail of these two sensitively restored apartments. Comfortable beds, ironed cotton sheets, coffee and wine in both apartments, fresh flowers - no detail was overlooked. Michael met us promply upon our arrival, explained every feature of both apartments, and gave us tips on restaurants and other attractions of this great neighborhood - the best in Paris. We have visited Paris many times before, and there is no better location in all of Paris nor a better host than Michael. We will definitely stay here on our next trip and recommend these apartments to our friends. An an added treat - you can see the Eiffel Tower from the loft - just like in the pictures.

Best apartment in Paris

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Paris was wonderful and due, in large part, to our stay in this apartment. It is absolutely gorgeous, with a lovely kitchen and very comfortable bed. The location is fantastic; we walked everywhere – restaurants, Notre Dame, parks, galleries – and for the sights that were a little further away, metro stations St-Paul and Hotel de Ville are only a few minutes’ walk. But it was the personal attention of the owner, Michael, that really made our stay special. Our flight into Paris was delayed by more than five hours – Michael very kindly made alternative arrangements for access to the apartment upon our arrival and left us brioche and orange juice for our breakfast the next day as our arrival was very late. He also gave us a beautiful bottle of Syrah wine, which we enjoyed with sweet treats from a local patisserie.
We could not have hoped for better accommodation or a better host – the extra services Michael provided, including booking a taxi for us upon our departure, meant so much and really personalised our visit. We give this accommodation the highest recommendation – it is fantastic.

The apartment is located in the heart of the city, in the Marais, which is the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris (the street the apartment is on was created in the 1100s and is one of the most beautiful in the city, paved in granite, and lined with 19th century street lamps). The surrounding area is full of restaurants, art galleries, and high-fashion shopping. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum (the museum of the history of Paris), the beautiful place des Vosges, Notre Dame Cathedral, and numerous others. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk from the apartment to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern automated Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes right through the heart of the city directly to numerous monuments and sites, such as the Musée du Louvre and Arc de Triomphe.
