About the property

One bedroom, sleeps 4, private garden

Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum, galleries, restaurants and shops. This recently renovated house has a bedroom with office space upstairs, a bathroom with a large shower, an open kitchen, a dining area and a living space with a convertible sofa that has a very comfortable mattress. It sits tucked away in the second courtyard behind a 17th century hôtel particulier and has its own garden space with outdoor furniture. You’ll love the light streaming in through the glass roof and the huge sliding glass doors that look out onto your private cobblestone outdoor space.

You enter the apartment by going through the large cobblestone courtyard, through a landmark building into the second courtyard and then through a hallway that leads to the ground floor duplex loft.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washer/dryer, multi-function oven, induction cooktop, refrigerator with freezer and all of the cooking equipment you’ll need.

The living room has a comfortable convertible sofa with a real thick mattress for two that you’ll definitely get your sleep on if there are four of you. There’s a flat screen TV and of course free WiFi and telephone. Feel free to browse the books in the huge bookcase next to the stairs. The furniture has been carefully chosen and boasts some design classics such as the colorful Eames chairs in the dining area or the Noguchi prism table next to the sofa.

The all white bathroom has a 90cmx90cm shower, a washbasin, a toilet and plenty of storage.

The bedroom is upstairs and has a Queen size bed (160cm x 200cm), a desk and storage for your clothes and luggage. There’s also a plush, leather Eames lounge chair with foot rest to ease your tired feet from all of the walking. A curtain can be pulled to close off the sleeping area if you need to sleep in the dark. You can also watch TV on a flat screen at the foot of the bed.

The outdoor space is the icing on the cake. It’s private and makes for a lovely view. It’s equipped with a table and chairs as well as lighting that makes outdoor dining a pleasure.

Clean sheets and towels are provided.

The weekly cleaning fee is 100 Euros. Extra cleaning services are available.

A baby bed is available upon request.

Vous pouvez regarder la télé sur un écran plat au pied du lit.

L’espace extérieur est la cerise sur le gâteau. Il est privé et donne une jolie vue. Il est équipé d’une table et de chaises ainsi que d’un éclairage qui rend les repas pris à l’extérieur fort agréables.

Marais escape

  • 5 of 5

I reviewed this loft last year (I think "hideout" was in the title) and after a return visit, stand by my very positive prior review. The place was clean, gorgeous, and as unique and lovely as I remembered. The neighborhood is vibrant and active, whereas this space takes you away from the bustle. Jessica was kind and responsive. The difference this year was that we brought our two kids, 12 and 10, and that made it quite cramped, especially the bathroom. I would most definitely stay here again alone or as a couple, and recommend it highly, but probably not with the kids. That said, our family had a wonderful time in Paris and created memories we will cherish forever, including our mornings and evenings in this beautiful, luminous space.

Clean, comfortable

  • 3 of 5

This is small but comfortable with a tiny charming garden. The glass doors to the garden make the space seem bigger. Fairly centrally located. I walked everywhere. I couldn't find pots so that I could cook and I couldn't figure out how to lock the sliding doors to the garden. I loved the amount of light.

Très bel apartement dans un très beau quartier accessible!!

  • 5 of 5

La luminosité, le style, l'espace, le quartier, les commodités, le confort sont tous des plus!!!

Le petit point d'amélioration: la propreté, surtout dans la salle de bain et sur la terrasse, pourrait être améliorée!!

Sinon, très bon choix pour deux à quatre personnes!!

wish it had lived up to the pictures

  • 3 of 5

needed to be cleaned, and the glasshouse effect in hot weather is not pleasant (2 fans isn't really enough to cool it off). the patio had fallen dried up leaves in June so what's up about that? landlord really nice and area good but.....

Intriguing location, patio makes it special

  • 4 of 5

For two people (not more) this makes a nice introduction to a part of Paris we did not know at all—3rd arrondissement, the "Haut Marais," and only a short walk to the 2d, 4th or 11th. The location rather than the interior space is what is memorable here: on the ground floor, way at the back of one of those 17c hôtels particuliers that you normally would not see unless someone invited you in. It is so far back from the street that it is extremely quiet. The use of the small space has been nicely thought out. Besides the skylight there is a little outdoor patio through the glass doors at the foot of the stairs: this is where we spent most of the time, usually with our breakfast or apéritif. The neighborhood is now crowded with galleries and clothing boutiques in a way that its older residents must regret, but there is a lot to look at, and just 2 steps away is rue Bretagne which has all the neighborhood shops you would want (plus a good bookstore). The living space is not the attraction here—the bed is set into a closet space that you have to clamber into (behind the blue curtain in this photo), the kitchen is strictly minimum; when we arrived it had not been cleaned as carefully as you would do if you lived there yourself.

Great Marais Location

  • 4 of 5

Quiet location that's close to everything -- we walked everywhere. The place was well stocked with the stuff we needed. Maybe some extra blankets / pillows would be nice --but we really enjoyed our stay. The stairs were fine once you got used to them -- but maybe not the best for anyone with mobility issues.

Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum (reopening Summer 2013), galleries, restaurants and shops. You can walk to the river Seine and the Place des Vosges. We're also in the heart of the Paris fashion week area where several times a year the art galleries are transformed into fashion showrooms. The nearest metro stations at about equal distance are St Sébastien Froissart (line 8) and Rambuteau (line 11). It's a 10 minute walk to République (lines 3, 5, 8, 9 and 11) and to Hôtel de Ville (lines 1 and 11). The 29 bus is a block away and the 96 (that takes you directly to the Luxemburg garden and to Odéon is a 7 minute walk away.
