Beautiful 1 Bedroom Apt in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

I found this beautiful apt through a good friend who had stayed here on a visit to Paris with her husband. It was all I had hoped for and then some!

To begin, all of my emails and questions were answered immediately by the delightful owner, Michael. On one occasion he even called me! I was really

appreciative of his timely responses.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the property manager, David, who showed us through the apartment and welcomed us with some lovely fresh vegetables! Since I was traveling with my sisters it was nice to know that he lived nearby in the event we needed anything.

The photos of this apartment are spot on! It has an amazing modern kitchen, spacious living area (with a gas fireplace) and a very large bedroom with a really comfortable king bed. There is a beautiful iron spiral staircase to the bedroom area. The sofa downstairs opens to a sleeper which we did use. We particularly enjoyed having such a nice space to come home to at the end of our busy days sightseeing. We were there for 2 weeks and this really felt like a home.

The apartment was very clean and we did not want for anything! The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils etc. and there were plenty of bath towels. We did also make use of the washer and dryer. (They have a nice binder in the apt. with instructions for the appliances as well as other information). There are plenty of electrical outlets, an iron and board and hair dryer. Also, lots of natural light from the very large windows and plenty of indoor lighting as well.

The location is excellent for getting around and we were very close to the nearest Metro stop. The entrance is on a very small side street. There is a grocery store right near the Metro stop which was very convenient.

We did have dinner at Derriere which is just a couple of doors down and it was delicious! You definitely need to make a reservation. Around the corner on the next block there is a wonderful coffee spot called Loustic..amazing coffee!

I would definitely recommend this apt. to friends and family. In fact, I hope to be going back myself one day!

Wonderful Place.

  • 5 of 5

This place is worth renting. I stayed with a friend for 10 days and we just loved the place. We were greeted by the coordinator, and he made sure to explain all the electronics in the apt. For the ten days we were never intruded upon by the coordinator but he was always available if we needed him, which we didn't. The place is beautiful, and the design unique; it also is very clean, and quite. The apt looks like all the pictures presented in VRBO. When I return to Paris, I'll be staying in the apt again, as it really did feel like home. I loved it and hated to leave.

Superb Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spotlessly clean and the location is superb. It is well-equipped, well-planned and spacious. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay in the same apartment again.

Jewel Box

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this little jewel box for a week in June/July 2014. We stayed for a week in an apartment in London prior to this. Having always stayed in hotels until this trip, our experience with this apartment has won us over to apartment rentals. The Atelier is so beautifully designed that it was truly a relaxing and enjoyable place to return to after long and crowded summer days in Paris. From the darling bedroom with its armoire and comfortable bedding down the spiral staircase to the fully equipped chef's kitchen, and old stone walls of the bathroom, each part of this apartment is thoughtfully designed and furnished. It is as represented in the photos- perhaps even better!

Here's what we also appreciated-

* A large beautiful bowl filled with fresh vegetables for our use. (After a week in London we were craving vegetables!)

* A large bowl of tomatoes on the dining table.

* Fully stocked with laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, new kitchen sponge, plastic bags and the things you don't want to have to purchase for your week's vacation. (Our apartment in London did not provide these.)

* Wonderful shampoo and body wash for our use. (Again another touch our other apartment rental in London did not provide)

* Hair dryer

* Electrical adapters left for our use in addition to the built in one in the kitchen perfectly located for phone/ipad charging.

* Lovely sheets and towels.

* A sofa bed our kids said was quite comfortable and a big screen t.v. for them to watch the World Cup.

* Proximity to the Arts et Metiers metro (one block) and walking distance to great shopping (Marais) Notre Dame (15 min) and the Louvre (20-25 min).

* Carforte (sp?) grocery store is right by the metro- one block away.

We could not be more pleased with our stay at this lovely apartment and hope to return some day. We would not hesitate to recommend it to friends. We have to add that we had some concerns when we google mapped the location and saw the street view. The apartment is located in the Asian handbag section of the Marais and I was a bit concerned that it was going to be full of trucks, noise and perhaps not 'french' enough. This is truly of no concern. The apartment is down a charming alley with a wonderful wine bar and patisserie. Behind the wood alley door lies a courtyard leading to the first floor apartment (with a charming spiral staircase up to the bedroom). It is a very safe area.

Generally nice

This is a well located flat in the area just north of the Marais. Close to the Metro as well as lots of nightlife. Quiet and secure. Recommended.

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to express my gratitude for your warm and exquisite hospitality. We celebrated a wonderful long weekend in Paris. Your apartment is refreshingly zen and artistic. Thank you so much for the wine and vegetables! We warmed up by the fire, and enjoyed the bottle of wine. Our evenings were quiet and cozy. I felt like I was staying at a five-star hotel. A perfect place to nest after a day of exploring the museums and cafes. I have recommended your place to my friends, and I shall definitely be returning for another rendezvous in the future. Thank you again!

Le Marais...

'Le Marais,' which means 'the marsh, bog or swamp!!” is the heart of historical Paris. It sits between the Pompidou Centre to the southwest, and almost as far north as Republique. You'll find the Picasso Museum on its eastern edge and the Seine at the southern border. (These areas are all within 10 minutes walking distance.) Most of this now protected district was built in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is one of the most fashionable districts, and one of the most expensive to live in too. Full of museums and beautiful buildings and mansions, the quarter is lively thanks to countless bars; cafes and restaurants open all year long. It is in this quarter that you can stroll down the beautiful quaint streets seven days a week. This area is also still a major centre of the Paris Jewish community where delis and bakeries sell kosher food and fallafels. Just nearby is the rue des Francs Bourgeois possibly one of the most famous streets in the ' Marais’ and the heart and essence of the quartier. The atmosphere most probably the most unique in all of Paris.

Perfectly located close to the famous 'Marché des Enfants ' where the locals do their shopping and where you can buy gourmet food at reasonable prices.

The famous “Notre Dame' situated on an island on the river Seine is a mere 15 minutes away on foot and can be seen from the end of the street. Metro connections are in abundance with the nearest being only 150 yards away.
