This 750sqft apartment is located on 3rd floor (2nd French floor) of a XIXth century building in Northern Marais, a few steps away from the charming Square du Temple and 2 blocks away from the famous rue de Bretagne and its amazing open air market. Fully equipped, this 2 BR/2BA can sleep up to 6 persons, with 2 queen size beds and a very comfortable sofa bed in the living room.

The apartment contains a bright and large living/dining room with a fully equipped open kitchen, and two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom or shower room. One of the bedroom can be fitted with one queen size bed or two single beds, depending on your needs.

The entire apartment has been newly remodeled in Winter 2008 with careful attention to restore the apartment's original features (parquet floor, moldings, high ceilings) while at the same time providing all modern amenities and conveniences. It has been professionally decorated with a mix of modern comfortable furniture and some carefully chosen French antiques.

The living room area is equipped with a very comfortable (and easy-to-handle...) sofa bed. A splendid 'meuble de metier' found at the flea market can be used as a desk when checking your emails or writing some postcards... Cable TV (with CNN International and BBC World among others) and DVD player, hidden in another elegant antique piece of furniture, are also available in the living room.

Our large dining table can easily welcome 8 to 10 people, which will enable you to have friends coming over for dinner!

The first bedroom, overlooking the street, is nevertheless quiet as traffic at night is close to zero... It is equipped with large built-in closets, a queen size bed, antique nightstand and has an en-suite shower room.

The second bedroom, overlooking the building courtyard, is also equipped with large built-in closets, a TV and has its own very traditional en-suite bathroom. The beds can be adjusted as a queen size bed or two single beds depending on your needs.

There is high speed wifi, free local calls within France, free calls to cell phones and landlines to the US and Canada, and free calls to landlines in over 200 other countries (please inquire about your particular country).

The closest subway station is Republique (line 3, 5, 8,,9, 11) giving you easy access to place de la Concorde, Opera, Bastille, etc.)

A Velib stop is just at the end of the street, on place de la Republique.

Bus lines 20 et 65 (place de la République) will take you in 5 min to the Opera Bastille and in 10 mn to Gare de Lyon.

LOCATION:

Our location is extraordinary with great restaurants, art galleries and fashionable shops at your doorstep. There are narrow streets that have not changed for centuries.

If you have young kids, you will really enjoy the vicinity of Square du Temple, just one block away from the apartment.

Two bakeries and a large supermarket are located just 3 mn away from the apartment.

About Sophie Berdah

I own this apartment and live in the same building, it has been refurbished and furnished in 2009!

Whether you want to BUY a pied a terre in Paris, or RENT a beautiful apartment in Paris, you may want to call our MY HOME IN PARIS team.

Sophie

Sophie Berdah purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Sophie Berdah chose 3rd Arrondissement Le Marais

The Marais is an area that you'll want to visit every time you're in Paris. You'll find so many reasons to go : Centre Georges Pompidou, this amazing designed building with a lot more to offer than just a museum, la Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, a must for contemporary photos exhibits, la Place des Vosges ....

The Marais is also and mainly a place to hang out choosing the right place to have a proper lunch, wandering around the narrow streets and peeking into private courtyard and private mansions

What makes this apartment unique

Very close to metro station and at the same time in the heart of the Marais but in a quiet street!!!!!

Great location. Spacious apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Great location near the Republique metro station. Spacious apartment with ensuite for each of the two bedrooms. Kitchen does not have an oven (just a cook top), so don't plan on baking! Fans in bedrooms and living area were a plus. Pretty, quiet location.

DO NOT leave your key in the door in the inside when you leave. I did by accident and it is easier to do than you might think when you have two sets of keys! You will be locked out if you do. There is plenty of warning about not doing this (I take full responsibility!) and management was able to resolve the problem with the help of a locksmith on a Saturday. Cost me 50 euros.

I would stay here again. Management was very good about communication and provided a helpful video guide to the check-in process. When we arrived, we were met at the airport by a driver they hired - this is also a real plus. Management also provided a very helpful and thorough guide to restaurants and shopping in the area.

Nice apartment but furniture was not comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The Marais apartment was a great location for 2 couples to spend our week in Paris. Very close to the Metro, or you can set out on foot if you are a walker. The apartment is exactly as pictured and the communication prior to our arrival was excellent! There was a slight delay in getting the bathroom light replaced, but we attributed that to the weekend. Sophie's team also arranged a driver to take us to the airport at the end of our stay.

Below are the PROs and CONs so you are able to see what we based our review on:

PROS

- Pick-up from the station when we arrived was a nice touch, so we didn't have to worry if we were going to the correct place

- comfortable beds and pillows

- Good quality linens

- Nice big table for eating and other activities

- Cross breeze provided by large windows

- Hip area with a lot of shops and restaurants close

- Coffee, milk, sugar that was provided

- Lots of hot water for showers

CONS

- uncomfortable living room furniture

Other need to know stuff:

- Street and courtyard noise - it was VERY loud, if you close the windows it blocks most of the noise, but when it is warm the windows really do need to be open

Sophie, it's a lovely space. We especially appreciated the coffee!!! Thanks for letting us stay there :-D

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5-nights while visiting Paris. The apartment is in a very secure building; the location is right around the corner from restaurants, shops, and a major metro station. The apartment was well equipped and easily accommodated the 5 of us, 2 couples and a teenager. If you leave the windows open you will get street noise, but is was part of the charm. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our 12 year old granddaughter to Paris. The apartment Enfant Rouge is in a perfect location in northern Le Marais. It is on a very quiet street perfectly nestled between to other bustling areas with markets, shops and restaurants. It is a 3 minute walk to the metro hub so it is convenient to get to all locations in the city.

The apartment itself is well appointed with inventive art and had all the amenities we needed for a week. It is a charming place for two couples or a family of 4 (or more if you use he sleep coach).

The owner Sophie was extremely helpfu before and during our stay. We could not have been happier with our stay. Thank you!!!
