BRAND NEW: Total renovation just completed on December 15th 2013. Located in one of the most fashionable areas of the heart of Paris with museums, art galleries, trendy boutique shopping, historical architecture and beautiful parks at your doorstep, this architect-designed apartment is a true gem. It is located in the heart of the city, in the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris, on the 3rd floor (2nd floor by European standards) with an elevator in a beautiful building with windows on two private quiet courtyards. The apartment has central air-conditioning, a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious modern bathroom, and full-sized clothes washing machine and separate clothes dryer.

The bathroom, kitchen, and all the appliances are new, while the original elements of the apartment have been carefully restored, including the limestone wall, antique marble fireplace, original oak floor in the bedroom, and beautiful 18th century oak columns in the living room.

The street the apartment is on dates to the 1100s and is one of the most historic and beautiful medieval streets in the city. At your doorstep are numerous restaurants, art galleries, and in particular many trendy designer clothing boutiques. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum, the beautiful Place des Vosges, and Notre Dame Cathedral, as well as numerous trendy clothing boutiques and galleries. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk 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.

Pale white glass mosaic tiles cover the bathroom walls. The sanded glass wall and door to the bathroom provides ample natural light in addition to the embedded ceiling lighting and an above-mirror light. An electrical outlet in the bathroom allows you to plug in shavers and toothbrushes (an adapter is provided - please make sure your appliances function on European 240 volt circuits), and a hairdryer and magnifying mirror are also provided.

The high quality bedding and larger than queen size bed (160 cm wide and 200 cm long – which is between a queen and king size bed) and white pressed linens provide very comfortable sleeping in the bedroom, while an equally large bed is available in the living room through the comfortable sofa-bed which has a real mattress for when 4 guests stay in the apartment. There are two closets with hangars provided: one in the living room and one in the bedroom.

The white glass cabinets and white stone counter-tops in the kitchen conceal a well equipped kitchen, including a microwave and oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, cook top with an aeration hood, including all plates, glasses, flatware, wineglasses, pots, pans, a toaster and an espresso machine (espresso provided!). The kitchen is perfect for picking up fresh food at local markets or at the numerous nearby bakeries, cheese shops, and grocers and enjoying in the apartment.

The apartment has a clothes washing machine and separate clothes dryer (available for long-term stays of 1 week or longer), as well as an iron and ironing board, providing complete laundry facilities.

The double-paned glass windows keep the apartment warm in the winter and cool in the summer, as well as very quiet. Additionally there is central air-conditioning and heating so the apartment can be the perfect temperature year-round.

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.

Michael purchased this apartment in 2013

I fell in love with this property because of the 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). Add to that the fact that there is an elevator (only 1 in 200 buildings in this historic area have elevators) and I could not resist purchasing it.

Location. Surrounded by museums, incredible food, fashion boutiques, and quintessential old-world charm. Beautiful quiet building with the rarity of having an elevator.

HIGHEST RATING - PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 10 nights in this beautifully appointed apartment. You are really in the middle of everything but the apartment is surprisingly protected from street sounds as you are steps away from a street full of restaurants and shops. Close to a metro stop and small grocery stores as well.

The apartment was very comfortable and had many thoughtful touches - an extra adapter, towel warmer, bottle of wine, fresh flowers. My major complaint with travel is that the beds are never comfortable even in the best rated hotels. However, the bed and pillows were very comfortable here - first class linens. It is well stocked with all the amenities you need - it is nice to not have to run out for more toilet paper or paper towels. The free phone service to the US and the washer and dryer were a big plus for us.

You have the feeling that care and attention went into all the details and accordingly, you feel as if you are in the home of a friend with exquisite taste. Both Laurence, who welcomed us, and the owner were very helpful with advice.

MAGNIFICENT APARTMENT IN LE MARAIS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful few days in Paris in this 2nd floor apartment. It is superbly appointed and located in an exciting and central part of Paris. Walking distance to restaurants, sights, shopping and the metro is just a few blocks away. The architect-owner was extremely helpful in welcoming us to the property and recommending restaurants and sightseeing. The apartment was extremely quiet, air-conditioned, and the elevator was a great help for luggage. I would love to stay for a month next time!

NO BETTER LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
There were 6 in our party, so we rented this one bedroom and a loft 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 apartments. Confortable beds, Modern bathrooms and kitchens, 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, 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. Thank you Michael.

BEST SPOT IN PARIS

  • 5 of 5
This property was exactly as described but better. The Marais district is so fun and buzzing with people yet the apartment was very quiet and private. Everything you could ask for is a 5 minute walk or less. Three of us (one teenager) stayed for 6 days. It was super clean. The beds were comfortable and fresh. A very well- equipped apartment. We had a problem with getting a taxi because of a taxi strike. I called Michael and he arranged for a private car that was less than our taxi from the airport. We also had problems figuring out our gate at the airport. Again, Michael came to the rescue. Air conditioning was just like home in the states. This is a city-size apartment that lives large. Thank you Michael.

QUIET IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this apartment during our recent visit to Paris. First off, Michael met us at the apartment and graciously took the time to explain where everything was in the apartment along with how to operate lights, appliances, etc. He even had a bottle of wine as a welcome - very nice touch.
The apartment is exactly as advertised and faces an inner courtyard so it's very quiet and you can't hear any street noise. The neighborhood is great, and convenient to a couple of grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, boutique shopping, the metro, and walking distance to many of the main sites in Paris.
We would definitely consider renting this unit again.

PERFECT APARTMENT IN THE PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this apartment for 7 nights. Over the last 5 years we have rented apartments in many European cities, including London, York, Edinburgh, Madrid, Seville and Lisbon. This apartment was the nicest of them all. Why anyone would opt for a hotel room over an apartment for a stay of 3 or more days is beyond my comprehension. The value offered by this property is excellent. Arrangements to rent were straight forward and Michael was very prompt in his responses to my emails. I chose this apartment because of the listing description which was extremely accurate. The apartment location was super. We were within 2 blocks of a Metro station that made going anywhere in Paris a breeze. In fact we were close enough to walk to many of the top attractions in the city. There are numerous cafes and restaurants within several blocks.

The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The directions for using all of the new appliances were available in English and easy to use. Though we did not do any cooking in the apartment every thing needed to do so was available to us.

The bed was a bit larger than a queen size and very comfortable. Not only that there was a top sheet on the bed. If you get too warm for using the duvet it is great to have a top sheet. The apartment is inside a courtyard and amazingly quiet both night and day.

The shower (unlike many we have encountered) is large with great water pressure. It has a door that closes completely so that you don't have to worry about getting water all over the bathroom. I am not sure why many shower/baths in Europe have half (or shorter) glass panels to keep in the water. This shower was fantastic! The apartment is 2 flights up from ground level but there is an elevator (lift). That is nice to have after a full day of walking around Paris.

I can't wait to go back to Paris and stay here again!

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.
