Overview

Sainte-Avoye Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

A sophisticated haven, Atelier is a rare combination of stunning design, location and a five-star experience, all in a historic setting. The owner, a former hotelier with an eye for comfort, quality and style, has transformed a 17th century printing shop into a luxurious enclave while retaining the building’s architectural character and original charm. In a sea of ordinary apartment rentals, Atelier is truly one of a kind.

Located on a tiny, ancient street named for the gravel workers who once lived there, the apartment combines the features of a deluxe hotel with the comforts of an exclusive private residence. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds -- an authentic Parisian neighborhood where you can live like a local -- away from the tourist hordes -- but centrally located on the Right Bank and close to all of the major tourist sites. The area is diverse, with a bohemian “SoHo” vibe and an eclectic mix of boutiques, art galleries and sought after restaurants interspersed with cafes, ethnic eateries and Chinese wholesalers. The Pompidou Center is down the street, and Notre Dame, the Louvre, the romantic gardens of the Palais Royal, the hip Rue Montorgueil and the heart of the historic Marais and Jewish Quarter are all an easy stroll. If you’d rather take public transport, the Arts et Metiers metro, around the corner, will whisk you virtually anywhere in Paris in minutes.

Named for the 30+ foot wall of glass that bathes the apartment with light, Atelier’s dramatic high-ceiling with original beams creates a sense of space that is rare in Parisian apartments. The expansive living/dining area is tastefully furnished with fine art, a flat screen TV and a dramatic eco-friendly fireplace; it features a dining table for six, and a high-quality convertible sofa with a supremely comfortable queen size mattress for two additional guests. Equipped with a commercial grade range, the chef’s kitchen is a show-stopper, ideal for creating gourmet meals with provisions from the nearby Marche des Enfants Rouges, the oldest open-air market in Paris, named one of the World’s Top Food Markets by Travel and Leisure Magazine. The adjacent master bath has a large walk-in rain shower, Carrera marble and original stone walls.

A beautiful spiral staircase leads to the completely private master bedroom, an elegant retreat outfitted with a king-size four-poster bed and luxury linens. And because Atelier is situated off a quiet courtyard, you’ll be ensured a restful night’s sleep. Across the hall is a chic studio, which can be joined to create a two-bedroom/two bath set-up that sleeps six. The studio, with its own mini-kitchen and additional separate entrance accommodates two more guests on a second high quality sofa bed.

Your experience is made complete with unparalleled standards of cleanliness, attention to detail and customer service; We know what our guests want, and we take very good care of them.

If you’re a discerning traveler who prefers an authentic Parisian experience in a environment of unparalleled quality, comfort and design, Atelier is a perfect choice.

One bedroom is approx. 590 square feet.

Studio is approx.270 square feet.

Two bedroom is approx. 860 square feet.

Keywords: Rented as one bedroom, two bedroom or studio.

Great location and nice clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great place and convenient location. Nice bright apartment. All positive except two things: Front door lock is tricky to operate. Not everyone was able to open it. There are two beds set up and one sofa bed but actually there was only one real bed. The other one was also a sofa bed, and obviously not as comfortable as a real bed.

Terrific apartment on historic Rue des Gravilliers (Marais)

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Atelier twice in the last two years, each time was fantastic. The apartment is well maintained and perfectly located near major attractions. The metro station is a block away. The grocery store is a block away. There are about 10 restaurants within a few steps, all very good. There are markets for bread, fruit and cheese nearby. The apartment kitchen is as nice as you will find anywhere, and very large. You have every amenity and appliance possible. The apartment is spacious and quiet. We could not have asked for better accommodations or service. The manager David will tell you all you need to know and is available by text/email 24-7. My family gives this rental 5 stars and we'd give it a 10 if that were possible. We hope to return as soon as possible. Enjoy!

Hidden Gem in Central Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment beautifully appointed perfect for those looking to experience Paris as lived by Parisians. Great markets nearby for produce, meats, fish and wine. Lovely spacious public rooms for relaxing and entertaining. Great property manager available to take care of any issues that may arise. Would return in a minute. Bonus: When we arrived there was a gorgeous basket of fresh vegetables, bread and wine sitting on the counter so we could toss together a nice meal without having to leave the premises. Bravo!

Beautiful Apt.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apt. for 4 nights in July. It was beautiful and so convenient to everything. The restaurants in the area were fantastic! The property manager, David, was excellent and very accommodating. Beds/bedrooms were all very comfortable. Loved having a washer and dryer. The only draw back was the time we were there, it was very very hot and there were no fans to alleviate the heat. I would highly recommend this apt. to anyone traveling to Paris. Fits 6 people very comfortably.

Beautiful 1 Bedroom Apt in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

I found this beautiful apt through a good friend who had stayed here on a visit to Paris with her husband. It was all I had hoped for and then some!

To begin, all of my emails and questions were answered immediately by the delightful owner, Michael. On one occasion he even called me! I was really

appreciative of his timely responses.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the property manager, David, who showed us through the apartment and welcomed us with some lovely fresh vegetables! Since I was traveling with my sisters it was nice to know that he lived nearby in the event we needed anything.

The photos of this apartment are spot on! It has an amazing modern kitchen, spacious living area (with a gas fireplace) and a very large bedroom with a really comfortable king bed. There is a beautiful iron spiral staircase to the bedroom area. The sofa downstairs opens to a sleeper which we did use. We particularly enjoyed having such a nice space to come home to at the end of our busy days sightseeing. We were there for 2 weeks and this really felt like a home.

The apartment was very clean and we did not want for anything! The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils etc. and there were plenty of bath towels. We did also make use of the washer and dryer. (They have a nice binder in the apt. with instructions for the appliances as well as other information). There are plenty of electrical outlets, an iron and board and hair dryer. Also, lots of natural light from the very large windows and plenty of indoor lighting as well.

The location is excellent for getting around and we were very close to the nearest Metro stop. The entrance is on a very small side street. There is a grocery store right near the Metro stop which was very convenient.

We did have dinner at Derriere which is just a couple of doors down and it was delicious! You definitely need to make a reservation. Around the corner on the next block there is a wonderful coffee spot called Loustic..amazing coffee!

I would definitely recommend this apt. to friends and family. In fact, I hope to be going back myself one day!

Wonderful Place.

  • 5 of 5

This place is worth renting. I stayed with a friend for 10 days and we just loved the place. We were greeted by the coordinator, and he made sure to explain all the electronics in the apt. For the ten days we were never intruded upon by the coordinator but he was always available if we needed him, which we didn't. The place is beautiful, and the design unique; it also is very clean, and quite. The apt looks like all the pictures presented in VRBO. When I return to Paris, I'll be staying in the apt again, as it really did feel like home. I loved it and hated to leave.
