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.

Apartment in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three just spent 6 terrific nights in this lovely apartment. I cannot say enough about how nice the apartment and the neighborhood both are - it was fantastic. The apartment is immaculately clean and the beds, towels and linens are all high quality and luxurious. The apartment owner has already thought of everything you might need while you are there. It is a great location - easy walk to the metro, Notre Dame and other attractions. We are already planning when we can go back. It is a 2nd floor walk-up so if steps are an issue be warned. We had absolutely no problems whatsoever. I highly recommend this apartment!

A stunning home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was an adorable apartment from which to explore the city. It is tiny but very comfortable and has everything that you could need. It is surrounded by beautiful shops and gourmet food, truly making it a Paris experience not to forget. We couldn't believe how quiet the building was also. The owner was a pleasure to deal with

Apartment in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this location on visit to Paris for New Years 2015 and it was so much better than living out of a suitcase at a hotel. The location was close to the Metro and walking distance to many attactions that were on our "must see" list. The apartment is 2 flights up on a quiet street just off Rue de Rivoli and near an abundance of shopping and restaurant locations. It has all the conveniences of home (washer/dryer, dishwasher, cable TV, stereo, etc.), a comfortable bed and a great (!!!) shower with unlimited hot water. It is perfect for two people although more might be more intimate than you'd want given the amount of square footage. The owner provides a notebook with answers to every possible question you could have from using the cable to restaurants and local entertainment and who to contact in the event of an emergency. What makes this rental so great is the location. Paris a walking city and from this apartment you can walk the streets or ride the Metro (which is a minute's walk) to anywhere in the city. There's even a Starbuck's around the corner- voila'!

Can't wait to return to this beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I just got back from our stay at Abby's beautiful Paris apartment. We celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary in Paris and it was really a dream come true. The apartment is equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is beautifully decorated, clean and was a joy to come back to every day after exploring all that Paris has to offer. The Marais is a gorgeous, safe, and historic neighborhood that is full of Parisian charm. The apartment is steps from delicious restaurants and shopping. It is also just 2 blocks from the St. Paul metro stop which was so convenient and made getting around Paris simple and quick. We had the best time and can't wait to return!

Everything you could need or want!

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.

Wish there were 6 or 7 stars!

  • 5 of 5

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.
