Sfeervol, schoon appartement. Centraal gelegen.

Bed en bedbank slapen prima.

Fijn dat je even met je stoel buiten in de besloten tuin kan zitten.

Bakker en Monoprix zijn heel dichtbij.

We komen graag terug!

Quiet Oasis in Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful apartment for 10 days to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It was a secure and peaceful sanctuary in the middle of Paris. After long days of site-seeing, we really appreciated the large comfortable bed, the soaker tub and shower. It was beautiful to rise in the morning, and open the French windows onto the luxuriant courtyard garden. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures provided and is very well equipped. The Marais area provided us with both a sense of medieval history and real modern day Parisian life. The apartment gave us easy access to all major sites. Transportation and a variety of food sources (grocery, wine and produce stores, vendors, restaurants, cafes) were at our doorstep. Our hosts were welcoming, responsible and caring, as well as good communicators. They even kindly arranged a taxi for our departure. We definitely recommend this romantic retreat, and, if the opportunity arose, we would book it again ourselves.

Great Apartment in Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous week in Paris thanks to this great little apartment in the Marais district. Perfect location for exploring Paris with 3 nearby Metro stations nearby. The apartment was exactly as advertised with a well stocked kitchen, excellent internet service and a very modern bathroom. Potential renters do need to know that the stairs to the bedroom are steep which can be seen in the pictures. Rita was a fantastic host, very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. Great neighborhood to walk and explore especially on Sunday when most of Paris is closed. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Paris!!

Will be Back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 9 nights in the apartment in May 2013. It is everything the description on the website says and very comfortable. The location is fantastic, with a bus stop right outside the door, and a choice of stations and restaurants / cafes within easy reach. Even though the apartment is right on Rue Saint Antoine, it is reached via a security door and passage from the street and a beautiful garden courtyard. From the apartment, you cannot hear any street noise. The photo on the website is from the security door on the Rue Saint Antoine and the Place des Vosges is really that close!


Rita and Gerard, the owners, are very good with their communication via email, with ample directions on how to reach the apartment and local restaurant recommendations. Gerard met us personally on our arrival in the early morning from the airport, showed us around the apartment, and gave us a nice bottle of Bordeaux to enjoy during our stay.

We found we could get to the apartment from CDG airport on the RER and Metro with two large suitcases without using any stairs, just use RER B to Chatelet and then Metro to Saint Paul, and take the escalator up to street level and walk about 300 metres, so no need to take a taxi from CDG, even with luggage.

There is one caution. The spiral staircase to the bedroom and bathroom, which is clearly visible in the photos, is a bit narrow, so if you have any issues with climbing stairs, then this apartment is probably not for you.

I will be recommending this apartment to my friends and would definitely stay there again next time we go to Paris.

Fabulous Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I knew we wanted to stay in Le Marais for our trip to Paris after many recommendations from friends about how laid back and fun the area is. I did some digging on HomeAway and found this apartment and promptly emailed the owners. We absolutely loved staying here and felt completely at home while on our trip abroad. While only in Paris for a short while (4 days), we were so close to a few major trains that we never had to take a taxi to get to any of our destinations. The neighborhood is great for strolling, eating, shopping and more and we couldn't be more pleased with our accommodations. Rita provided food recommendations and transit tips to/from the airport (also easily accessible via train) that were very helpful. Bottom line, I couldn't recommend this cozy apartment any more and would absolutely go back.

A great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a great Parisian get-away just steps from Place des Vosges and the Metro stations at St-Paul and Bastille. Everything you need is within easy walking distance.

My partner and I stayed for a week over Thanksgiving. We appreciated the classic carriage entrance, the stone walls, the wood-beamed ceiling, and the tasteful decor. We also appreciated that the bedroom is separated (by a spiral staircase) from the ground floor kitchen and living area.

The apartment includes wireless internet, ample linens, and everything you need to cook a simple meal.

This is definitely a great place to stay if you're looking to be in the Marais and close to Bastille.
