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).

TRANSPORTATION:

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.

On week-ends, we strongly recommend a stroll in the amazing 'Marche des Enfants Rouges' located on rue de Bretagne, where you will even be able to enjoy a delicious brunch when the weather allows...

About Sophie Berdah

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

Sophie

Sophie Berdah purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Sophie Berdah chose Enfants-Rouges

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!!!!!

Ideally located with transport included for group or family!!

This apartment was a dream! Located in a typical Parisian apartment building, this apartment was centrally located, just steps from la Place du la Republique and multiple train stations. We were able to do our first day’s worth of excursions on foot, walking to the Seine and experiencing the neighborhood. For the other days, we were able to take the Metropolitain to other sites that were a little further away. Nearby, there are excellent dining locations as well as markets to stock up on food or toiletries.

The apartment is small, but well laid out. 6 adults can easily sleep there, or more if you have children. The two bedrooms can accommodate 2 adults each, as well as the sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen provides all the basics, including some treats when you arrive! The washer/dryer worked well, although they mention that the drying option can take a while and does not work too well. We found that running the spin dry cycle, followed by the heat dry cycle did an adequate job. It does take some time.

The transport from the airport/train station makes this apartment stand apart from the others. For a large van from CDG that would easily be 100EUR. The service they contract with is top notch and even provided booster seats for our little ones.

If there is any negative about this apartment, I would mention that in the winter time one must pay attention to the hot water. The hot water tank is probably small, like most European apartments. If you don’t use the water sparingly (turn it off when you aren’t rinsing) you will run out by the third or fourth person. Mind you, this was in January, when it was quite cold. Once we figured this out, we adapted and had a wonderful stay. My daughter loved this place so much, that she kept calling it her “Paris Home.” When we come back, we will look this place up again!

Fabulous apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful five days in Paris. This apartment is a great size (we were a family of five - three adults and two kids) and nicely appointed. It is also in a fantastic location to explore the city. I would highly recommend this place and would absolutely stay there again!

You'll enjoy your stay ...

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Enfants Rouges! We found the access to the train at the Republique station so convenient and absolutely loved the restaurants, bars & cafes in Marais. The neighborhood is a bit noisy, but Paris is a busy city, so it's all part of the experience. The apartment is a very secure building and in a great location. Enjoy your stay!

Perfect location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

From the initial contact to the day of departure, all requests and concerns were handled efficiently and promptly. Sophie and her team were a delight to work with and offered assistance without asking. The apartment was exactly as pictured and very clean. Sophie resides in the building and the office is on the ground floor. One caveat - when someone enters or exits the courtyard, the metal gate used for access clangs quite loudly and is noticeable but only in the back bedroom.
