Overview

About the property

FULLY RENOVATED 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; quiet and fully equipped kitchen

This beautiful apartment (" Le Pied-à-Terre") has just been completely renovated (April 2015), combining period features with all modern conveniences. The high ceilings with the old, exposed wooden beams, the wooden floors and the black and white marble in the bathrooms make it truly magical, giving you a true Parisian feeling.

It is located between two courtyards, on the second floor of an 17th century house in the heart of the Marais, making it very quiet and even allowing you to sleep with open windows.

The apartment's layout and its size (75 square meter/800 square foot) will provide you with ample space to relax and to enjoy your own privacy. Ideally suited for two couples or a family with children, the two bedrooms sleep 4 guests comfortably. One bedroom has a four poster, king size bed, whilst the other has 2 single beds with unique bed-stands (all mattresses are new) . The finest Egyptian cotton linen has been chosen for your comfort and pleasure. Both have their own bathrooms (one en-suite), equipped with 1940's style fittings, black and white Carrara marble floors and Parisian Metro tiles. There is also a separate toilet. High quality face, hand and bath towels are provided. Each bedroom has got a powerful avant-garde silent Dyson (AM08) air cooler.

The sitting room is very large and has a mock fire place with many candles, antiques, modern art, leather chairs and a designer sofa, dim-able lights - a perfect place to relax before or after exploring Paris. The chef's kitchen has been designed and equipped to enable you to cook a wonderful meal. It has a lovely, large white Carrara marble work area and faces the dining area which has a stunning 19th century wooden table which can sit up to six guests. A large Freud retro style fan is at your disposal.

Naturally Pied-à-Terre has modern independent heating in each room, including the bathrooms; free high speed wifi; flat screen TV, Netflix, Apple TV, DVD player, DVD library, books, BOSE docking station, washer drier, microwave, induction hob, traditional oven, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster and dishwasher You can make free landline phone calls to over 150 countries.

This property is located in the heart of the Marais, the most vibrant arrondissement of Paris, in walking distance from many attractions like the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum, Place de Voges and even Notre Dame. The neighbourhood boosts many nice restaurants/brasseries, organic stores, patisseries and the flat is only 5-10 minutes walk away from the famous covered food market "Les Enfants Rouges" were you can buy organic fruit and vegetables, lovely fish and great French cheese.

The closest Metro station is Arts-et-Metiers 5 minutes away from Pied-a-Terre and buses and Velibs (bicycles that can be rented daily or weekly and are a great way to explore Paris) are close by. However, given Le Pied-à-Terre's central location you will most likely explore Paris on foot. The airports and the main train stations can easily be reached by public transport or by taxi and you will receive all information you need when you book the apartment. A manager will welcome you, show you around the property, give you the keys and provide you with valuable tips. He is of course available in case of emergency or for any questions you may have.

For guests who would like to come with a car, the nearest parking is located less than 150 meters from the flat and is called: "Parking Temple Alizés". Should you wish to book in advance, you get discounts using this website - http://www.parkingsdeparis.com/

Don't hesitate to come back to us if you need help on this.

About Ivan

As a child, I lived in Versailles and Paris was the city of my dreams. When I finally moved to Paris I loved exploring and savouring this wonderful and vibrant city. I always wanted to own a traditional Parisian apartment in the city centre.

My dream came true in 2004 when I purchased this property whilst living in London. I enjoyed visiting Paris regularly and staying in my apartment.

I decided to renovate the property totally and to give other people the chance to share my passion for this incredible city. Having said that, I love the apartment so much that I often visit and stay in it myself.

Ivan purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Ivan chose 3rd Arrondissement Le Marais

The combination of 17th century Parisian charm, antique furniture, exposed beams, all modern comforts, the location, right in the heart of the Marais ,and the fact that it is incredibly quiet make the apartment unique.

The kitchen has been designed an fitted to satisfy any hobby cook and the proximity to food markets and typically French food stores make it very easy to prepare lovely meals.

Being in walking distant from so many major tourist sites and being surrounded by wonderful places where one can eat and drink without having to use public transport makes it a perfect base for a short visit or a long stay.

The manager, who lives in the same building, will take good care of you ensuring that you receive the best customer service and, as a local, he can give you wonderful recommendations.

What makes this apartment unique

Totally refurbished; incredibly quiet - sleep with your windows open in the summer! Central location

A Perfect Home Base for a Trip to Paris

  • 5 of 5

Pied-a-Terre was as advertised: newly renovated, quiet, nicely decorated, spacious, and complete with everything you need from shampoo to laundry detergent. The three of us felt at home in this environment.

Thierry met us early to let us in and gave us a complete review of the flat and how to use its many services. We were there during a heat wave of temperatures in the 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The three fans in the flat kept us cool and comfortable.

The location is perfect for exploring the wonders of the Marais district as well as being near Metro stops for exploration further away. The linens and beds were great. Showers even better. A library of tour books assisted us in making plans for what to do in Paris.

I will book this flat again. The whole experience was flawless. Merci!

Great area, clean, spacious and well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great area with restaurants less than 200 meters away. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped for a short or long term stay in Paris. Although we did not cook, it had everything and more than you would need. The check-in was easy and we were met by Theirry who manages this process. I would stay in this same location again.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in April in this wonderful Paris flat with my 16 year old daughter and her best friend. We were welcomed by Thierry, the manager, who showed us around the flat and made sure we knew how all the appliances worked and where things were. The flat is cozy, comfortable, and quiet. The location is perfect for exploring the Marais and beyond. I have rented flats and houses all over the world, and this was very well appointed, from linens to the pantry and kitchen accessories. While we did not cook a lot, I found everything I needed including sharp knives (!), serving dishes and plastic containers to store leftovers. I appreciated the basics like coffee, tea, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, fresh ground pepper and sugar. So often I get to rentals and there is NOTHING in the pantry. Truly one of the best rentals I have experienced. I can't wait to return to Paris and stay in Ivan's flat again. I will absolutely recommend it to friends and family! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Merci!
