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.
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.
Wonderful stay with family I can only highly recommend this apartment.This rental is very well decorated and the bedding is very comfortable.
The apt is beautiful and the neighborhood was nice but we were so busy touring the sites of Paris we didn't tour the neighborhood except to get to our destinations. The owners/managers left helpful notes throughout the place that helped us navigate their beautiful home. We didn't have luck getting our clothes dry and a tea kettle might be nice addition to heat water as the microwave was also a bit confusing but neither of those restraints are major. The bedding was upscale, the house was spotless and 6 adults had room to visit each other or find their own cubby. One other note that wasn't a problem for us but could be a concern for others is two bedrooms are down a very steep spiral staircase and there are no windows at that level, otherwise the place is as advertised. Thank you for making our first visit to Paris welcoming and comfortable!
Traveling with 3 children and 3 older adults. 8 of us total and this place was perfect! We would stay here again for sure!
property and house is exactly as described. Pool is small but nice. Fabulous views.
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.
