i have just returned from a fabulous week in this beautiful apartment with 3 other friends. I have been renting apartments in Paris for a number of years and this without doubt is the best! Marcello the owner was very much on top of things before we arrived as to the exact location and how to locate it. We were greeted by him in the exact spot he told our driver and taken to the apartment. When we entered, WOW! Just like the pictures!! Marcello went through all the workings of the apartment to ensure we had a great holiday. The apartment is totally renovated with high end appliances throughout. The kitchen is beautifully furnished to cook and entertain while there. He has put together a great guide book as to restaurants, stores, shops and things of interest in the neighborhood. I know the neighborhood and it was fun sharing with my friends some of my favorite shops and restaurants. The beds are most comfortable and had no problem with sleeping, It is a very quiet building and we never heard anyone while there. My only regret was not being able to use the large terrace with large plants. A reason to return in the warmer season!! One cannot go wrong renting this most modern apartment in the middle of the Marais. I am planning a return to Paris in February and unfortunately that week is booked.
