Space 280 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 living room with fully equipped kitchen in corner, 1 full bathroom

Ideally located in the heart of the Marais district, a couple of steps away from the Pompidou Center and a 12 min. walk from Notre Dame.

Location on the 6th floor (with elevator) gives great view of the Pompidou Center, exceptional natural lighting, and quietness.

The Pompidou Escape has very modern designer furniture and was recently fully renovated. The owners provide luxury sheets, towels, shampoo, shower gel and soap. They welcome guests with a bottle of wine and a local dessert.

The decor reflects the owners' passion for Tango. Tango aficionados will appreciate the Pompidou Escape's proximity to 2 famous Parisian Tango studios.

Our style: We (the owners of this apartment) are a cosmopolitan couple who have lived and studied in many countries (France, Italy, Russia, Lebanon and the United States). We have taken extreme care in selecting, furnishing and decorating this apartment ensuring we would feel comfortable and enjoy it. Our style is modern and minimalistic and is colored by our passion for Tango dancing. We hope you will enjoy it too and remain available for any question or concern.

About Pompidou Escape Agency

We are an international couple that moved to Paris and lived there for more than 15 years. We fell in love with this apartment back in 2009 and decided to buy it for ourselves. We live now in NY and travel back to Paris occasionally to stay and stay in this apartment or our other one.

Pompidou Escape Agency purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Pompidou Escape Agency chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

We were looking for a property that would fit the following description:

- In the Marais area

- In a building with an elevator

- Bright with a nice view

- Quiet - not facing the street

- Ideally with a separate bedroom

This was very hard to find so we looked for a long time before finding this property that fit those requirements and was a rare pearl. We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

- The view on the back of the Pompidou center

- Quiet in the center of Paris - which is quite unique in this neighborhood

- In the heart of the Marais

- Bright - plenty of windows

- Elevator - again a tough find in many buildings of the Marais

- Decorated with personality (Tango theme)

Très bon choix

  • 4 of 5

Appartement très tranquille (sur une cour intérieure) avec tous les services ( métro, boulangerie, vins, Franprix, traiteurs, ) à quelques pas. Aussi accessibles à pied: le Marais, d'excellents restaurants de quartier, Beaubourg, l'Hotel de ville, Notre-Dame, ... Appartement petit mais agréable, lumineux et bien équipé. Nous y retournerions.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

Good location, only a very short walk to the main sites. All the necessities right down stairs. The size is a little small for 4 adults. Definitely ok for 2 adults. Inside the flat was very quiet at night as well.

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved out stay at The Pompidou Escape! The apartment was small but still very comfortable for my dad and I. It's in a great location! Very close to the metro, lots of places to get drinks/food, and a very easy walk to Notre Dame. I will definitely want to stay here again the next time I visit Paris!

Nice little flat....

  • 4 of 5

The flat was perfect for us. What is not to like !!

Location perfect,close to supermarkets,bakeries ,pubs and restuarants.

We followed the instruction we got through email so it was easy to find the place. Arrived late evening yet we were met by this sweet lady who showed us around the flat. She couldn't speak any English and with us not knowing any French yet the conversation was floating!!( used arms and hands) .It was the slight confusion about the deposit and payment but easily was solved as I emaild the owner and got a quick response.

The flat is compact and perfect for two people. We were 4 adult and light luggage so we had no problem with space. Kitchen is tiny but has everything you need. Beds are very comfy and the area is very quiet..

We really enjoyed our stay there and would like to go back.

lovely Marais

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in The Pompidou Escape on September 3 -6th, 2015. The apartement is located in a wonderful courtyard: the location is perfect, in the heart of the Marais distric. You can walk easily to all the major shopping centres and big street markets and there is also very easy access to Airport Link. The owner is friendly and available. Our room and bathroom were very clean, beds very comfortable. The internet connection is perfect. I would highly recommend it.
