A magnificent 18th century palace on a quiet street in the beautiful, and now chic and trendy Marais District of Paris, offers a special apartment for fortunate guests. Enter through a high portal into a quiet and beautiful courtyard lined with boxed Magnolias. Then enter through a private door directly into the apartment. The light from the courtyard enters the apartment, but cunning glass French doors prevent any prying eyes from seeing inside, while the insiders have an unobstructed view of the courtyard. The large entry hall, lined with 18th century stone is still modern and welcoming, with planted lemon trees, interesting antiques from the owners' travels, and attractive paintings. Add to this every modern comfort. The apartment is on two floors with two separate living rooms. There are two master bedrooms on the entry floor each with its own modern bathroom, and one double and one with two twin beds, and its own sitting area, on the lower floor. The two floors are separated by a charming spiral staircase. There is a beautiful dining room which seats 10 easily, a nice kitchen, and much more. All beds can be made as twins or large doubles, so it can sleep 8 singles or 4 couples.
It is located in one of Parisians' most favored locations, the Marais. From the mid-thirteenth century, the Marais became one of the most important aristocratic areas of Paris. By World War II the Marais had declined, but a major effort was made beginning in the 1950's to renovate the area. The main palaces and mansions were restored and turned into museums: the Picasso Museum, the Paris Historical Museum and the Cognac-Jay Museum are now prominent and worthy of a visit. In turn, this building has been returned to its former glory by an eminent designer/developer and a very few privileged owners have apartments in it. The Georges Pompidou Museum, France's national Museum of Modern Art and one of the world's most important cultural institutions, was built on the western edge of the Marais. Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano were the architects of this architecturally revolutionary building. The Marais has become incredibly chic and you will find trendy shops, countless art galleries, and all varieties of restaurants and cafes. You can shop away and dine very well between museum visits!
The Pompidou, Picasso, Carnavelet Museums, the Place de Voges, The Seine, the Cathedral of Notre Dame are a 10 mn walk. You will also find the Opera not far away. Two metros are less than a 4 minute walk, RER a 7 minute walk, 2 bus stops within 2 Minutes.
Thanks for the opportunity to stay at the Vivaldi. It was a wonderful time for our family, and the apartment was truly unique.
There was 7 people in our party & we all enjoyed the stay very much. There was plenty of space & the place was exactly as it was described & pictured online. Very quiet house w/restaurants/markets nearby.
Due to the strikes in France our timing changed and the staff was extemely accommodating & stepped to help us out on short notice.
I had only two minor suggestions for future visitors (which they were open to) but otherwise everything was great & I'd recommend this house. We'll definitely consider Commendable Renters for our next vacation!
Our group of six completely enjoyed staying in this lovely apartment. With four bedrooms (and eight twins), plus a large dining table and three bathrooms, it is large, comfortable, very quiet, and gives you a sense of its history. We loved our stay!
Secure entrance just off a bustling street. Great location. Great amenities. Travelled with wife and 5 kids and place was perfect for us. Hosts even gave us a bottle of French wine to enjoy. Would definitely book again and again. Great for large parties, even those with many kids.
We were a group of six friends and Vivaldi was the perfect apartment for our group. We walked everywhere exploring the neighborhoods! After a long day, we enjoyed coming home and sitting around the dining room table for diinner purchased in the local covered market and local wine shops. Beautifully appointed yet very comfortable and clean with nice bedding, ample hot water and water pressure. We will definitely return to
Our home away from Home in Paris!
Vivaldi is a gorgeous apartment and perfectly located for the various day trips different individuals in our group wanted to take. I loved being in the heart of the city and within walking distance to almost everything I could possibly want to do. As someone who works in design professionally, I was super excited to be right next to the Paris offices of Molyneux and V. Fraas. The stay was amazing.
Also, hats off to our greeter. She made sure all our questions were answered (and that took quite a while).
