Les Archives Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Den - 1.5 Baths - (Sleeps 2-3)

This recently converted apartment is one short block from the Place des Vosges. In the 18th century it was a coach house and stable.

The apartment is 400 square feet (37 sq m), and retains the original ceiling beams; it has a recently renovated designer kitchen and bathroom, and a separate wc.

The front two rooms have been opened up to make a light and pleasant double studio. The private entrance opens directly onto a planted cobblestoned courtyard. Access from the street is restricted by electronic code. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and residential. Transportation (bus and metro) is close and simple.

All amenities are new as of February 2007: queen size bed; sunken bathtub with a shower; fully-equipped separate kitchen; central heat; double glazed windows; telephone with answering machine, Internet access, cable television, DVD player and CD player / radio, washer / dryer, safe. Excellent lighting.

The apartment is ideal for two people, although it has a sofabed.

Will definitely come back

  • 5 of 5

I will be brief in my confirmation of the sustained excellence of this 5 star rental. Immaculate, contemporary bathroom, home-like comfort bedding, well-stocked kitchen, and quiet yet efficient washer/dryer. The nearby farmer's market at the Bastille (Sundays) just added to the perfection. Almost forgot, the local boulangerie, also excellent, is right at the corner.

Nice apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Paris many times but this was a first for using an owner-operated site vs. a hotel. The apartment gave us room to move around and was very clean and charming, with a well equipped kitchen and everything you might need for your stay. It was quiet yet so close to everything in Le Marais - a thriving, interesting part of Paris. Florence is lovely, very responsive and helpful - including recommendations for nearby restaurants - 2 of which we sampled and were fantastic! We do not hesitate to recommend this apartment.

The apartment was perfect for us on our 2 week sta

  • 5 of 5

We had read the other positive reviews and hope this apartment would be as good as those reviews indicated. It was wonderful, as was the owner, Florence. The apartment was clean when we arrived and everything was in order. The location is very quiet and we got a good nights sleep each night. There was a wonderful bakery at the end of the block and a couple of wonderful restaurants within 2 blocks. My wife and I do not see how a rental apartment could have been better.

Superlative, charming and super friendly Paris rental. We stayed here several times.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been incurably in love with Paris and have visited the city more than 20 times, which makes somewhat connoisseurs of the place. During all these years we stayed in different hotels and also rented apartments. There is no doubt in our minds that THIS is the place for us, and thus, we rented the apartment 4 or 5 times since 2008. It would be hard to surpass such ideal lodgings: the location is perfect; the apartment is charming and well appointed; Place de Vosges is a quick one minute away, yet in spite of all the hustle and bustle of Marais, the spot on Rue du Foin is an oasis of calm and quiet; a lot of the major Paris attractions are within one hour walking distance; restaurants and elegant shopping practically on your doorstep, etc. But above all, what makes the stay here all worth it, the clincher, is the owner: she is the friendliest, most competent and accommodating host one could ask for. Charming and exceedingly pleasant, speaks impeccable English, has always made a point to meet all our requests, and even made the time to get together with us socially. She lives just a few minutes away and is always available to pick up the phone or come to the apartment upon request, should we need anything. By highly recommending this owner and her apartment we wouldn’t be giving them enough credit. Thank you, Florence!

A wonderful apartment...we really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for the two of us. Le Marais is a great district; fun, great food/shopping and centrally located. The street is convenient; very close to everything and at the same time it is very peaceful and quiet. The apartment is very nice and well kept on the inside; bright, clean and has every amenity. Florence is a terrific host; she lives nearby and truly makes herself available to her guests. We had a wonderful trip and absolutely loved our stay at ParisCosyCorner.

Comfortable and oh, so lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Well, I think writing reviews of VRBO's is a very important duty... and I couldn't be happier to write one for this lovely apartment in the Marais. We are a family of three and the apartment accomodated us beautifully. The bed was fantastic - comfortable and lovely linens. Our daughter also reported the pull out couch was perfect (which is saying a lot for a pull out couch!). Florence made our stay easy and stress-free. We have also decided that the Marais is the BEST location to stay in Paris with many attractions within walking distance. This apartment is also located on a very quiet street and opens up onto a lovely courtyard. We will recommend this apartment to friends and definitely plan on returning. Thanks, Florence!
