About Abby Gordon

A native of Massachusetts, I now split my time between Paris, Brittany, Boothbay Harbor (Maine), and Manhattan. In addition to my day job, I keep a blog on Paris and a guide to the Boothbay Harbor Region.

Abby Gordon purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Abby Gordon chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

I renovated the entire apartment in 2012 with the idea of renting to vacationers in mind. Every detail is specifically designed to make your stay more enjoyable. You couldn’t pick a better location for exploring historic Paris, its shops and its restaurants!

What makes this apartment unique

You’ll have the benefit of my library of Paris and other France guide books, maps and travel literature.

You’ll have the benefit of my 6+ years of living and working in Paris — I am always available to help you plan your stay and give suggestions. If you have a question, just ask!

You will be greeted by a trusted friend who will give you the keys, show you around the apartment and answer any questions you may have. You’ll have her cell phone number so you can call her (or me) if any issues arise during your stay.

I have negotiated fixed rates for airport/train station pick-up and/or drop-off for my guests with a trusted English-speaking driver.

I would be happy to help you with anything else that might make your vacation more enjoyable and carefree.

But don’t just listen to my reasons, read other guests’ reviews on my online guest book.

Everything you could need or want!

  • 5 of 5
My two sisters and I had an opportunity to stay at this wonderful apartment last week. We had high hopes and weren't disappointed. Everything was as stated and then some. We were greeted by Michelle, a lovely English speaking woman who walked us through the ins and outs of the apartment. This is a lovely, well-appointed vacation rental with high quality finishes and personal details. We used the WIFI without a problem to help us plan our days, called home to the US using the free phone service, washed and dried clothes without a hitch. The beds were extremely comfortable with luxurious sheets and pillows. We went to the market and brought back lovely fresh items which we cooked through out the week. The kitchen was well-stocked with basics and spices-- meaning no time or money wasted preparing dinner or breakfast. My sisters and I have rented homes before and this was certainly at the top of the list in terms of accommodations.

This apartment is great. Its a great, well appointed space and a cool place to stay. Very comfortable bed and the apartment is very well taken care of by Abby and her team. The check in was very smooth and Abby is very responsive and well organized making the trip easy. Abby also has services arranged to help like a pre-arranged fee with a driver from the airport. In addition, the apartment is in the Marias which is a very, very cool place to stay. Lots of shops and resturants within walking distance. Metro and cabs are right nearby for access to the remainder of the city. We will be renting again.

Les Miroir du Marais

  • 5 of 5
We (58, 42, 15) stayed here in March 2013 and again in 2014.

We enjoyed a seamless and delightful stay at this Paris flat, in the Marais district. We were met on time and prepped by a pleasant greeter on how things operate at the flat. A file folder covers everything that's necessary, and more. We were familiar with the flat, as we had also rented it last year, and it feels very 'homey' to us.

The flat's location is superb and central, and an easy Metro ride to other parts of Paris, the train stations and the airport. Being in the heart of the Marais district is especially convenient as this is a very lively, peaceful neighbourhood and a pleasant walk to Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville, the Louvre, Jardin Luxembourg, Place Republique, and along the Siene. We even walked to Jardin Luxembourg, Champs Elysee and Tour Eiffel.

The flat is located on a quiet street. The bed and sofa are super-comfy. The shower pressure is strong and the water is hot. This is a fabulous flat.

It is well equipped for cooking, but with restaurants nearby (and various price and dining options), you will probably be making tea or coffee and popping out for croissants and patisseries. There is a convenience store right around the corner for groceries and other necessities. Pharmacies and banks are in close proximity. Great clothes and shoe shopping is EVERYWHERE!!!

We had many memorable lunches and dinners. The following restaurants create delicious food, have pleasant, efficient service, and are worth visiting: La Veraison, L'Auberge du 15, L'Ange 20 and La Table D'Eugene. We left some of those restaurant business cards in a box at the desk in the flat, for future visitors. L'Ange 20 is within walking distance, the others are accessible by Metro. Reservations recommended.

The flat's owner made the booking process easy and stress-free.

We love Paris, and we love staying at Les Miroir du Marais.

Perfect Place in the Heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at your charming apartment! It has been newly renovated and yet you never feel like you’ve left Paris. It is beautiful, perfectly appointed, and well thought out with creative design choices, such as the colorful tiles and exposed beam ceilings that add a great deal of character. We loved the location in the center of the Marais. It’s on a great street within seconds of shops, cafes, supermarkets, and the metro – we couldn’t believe how convenient it was. Within a 10-20 minute walk, you could be along the Seine at the Ile St. Louis and Notre Dame or in the artsy, energetic Bastille neighborhood.

Your apartment made us feel like we have our own pied-a-terre in Paris and is much better than hotel life. We highly recommend staying here! We have such fond memories of our stay – we look forward to our next trip to Paris and will most definitely stay in this perfect Paris apartment!
