About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4

Old-world charm blends with modern amenities for truly the best of both worlds! You can unwind after a day of walking Paris' beautiful streets with a long soak in the oversized tub hand-tiled with mosaic.. enjoy an espresso at the kitchen counter.. or have a light evening meal of cheese, bread and fruit while relaxing in the full-size dining area - or just use the large table to spread out guide books and maps to plan your next day's adventures.

Located on the 2nd floor, with elevator (facing a quiet courtyard) antique furnishings from around France join modern pieces of extreme comfort (full-size sofa bed with Simmons mattress). Plus, courtesy high-tech perks (a loaner cellphone with a local number, a printer to print boarding passes and maps, high-speed internet and more.

Walk to Place Des Vosges, Ile St Louis, Bastille: This perfectly situated Paris apartment is less than a 5 minute walk to some of the city's most desirable locations. Only a block and a half away sits the majestic entry to Place Des Vosges, home to Victor Hugo and other fixtures of Parisian history.

Still twilight at 1030 at night, summer evenings are dazzling. In winter, holiday lights twinkle and the many cafes offer a warm place to share a glass of wine or a delicious meal. Our outstanding heating system ensures cozy evenings despite the ancient construction! Ile St Louis - home to some of Paris' oldest homes - is just across a small bridge, and museums abound (Picasso, Pompidou, Carnavalet and more). The Bastille offers twice a week farmers markets, and the restaurants within walking distance can sustain you for days.

Extra Amenities - Paris Charm PLUS modern comfort: Super comfortable as a base from which to explore the neighborhood and the city, there are many places in this apartment to relax - a real bonus if you are staying more than 5 days and want to truly settle in! The living area features a modern sofa with antique chairs reupholstered with fabrics from the top French designer, Lelievre. The dining area offers a place to enjoy meals you bring in or prepare yourself, or simply a spot to map out the next day's sightseeing. Barstools originally designed for a bar near Strasbourg sit at the kitchen counter, equipped with a cappuccino machine and a variety of teas.The bathroom is a true rarity in Paris - with double sinks as well as separate shower and tub areas. A couple (or well-behaved family:) can easily and comfortably get ready for the day. And when you return, if your feet are sore from walking the beautiful streets of Paris, the tub fills quickly with piping hot water for a relaxing soak!

(note: Bed photos blurry. New ones coming!)

Easy traveling and cost-saving bonuses: You may choose to completely 'switch off' while on your Paris vacation, but if you need to stay in touch with work or family, we make it as easy as possible to do so affordably - and without interrupting your holiday.

The apartment phone offers free calls to landlines in the UK, Australia and EU countries - calls to both fixed and mobile numbers in the US and Canada are also free of charge. High-speed internet and wifi are also included in the price as is cable TV (with CNN and BBC for English-speakers in search of news).. We also offer you a loaner cellphone with a French SIM card - all you need to do is buy a recharge ticket at one of the many kiosks around the city, and save on roaming charges from you home provider. You will also find a courtesy printer to use for boarding passes and reservations. (note: Instructions are included but we don't offer tech support, so please don't try to use our gadgets if you aren't familiar!)

Why Alexis chose Paris

This location is perfect for foodies like us - with 3 bakeries within 2 blocks, cheese shops, butchers, organic food markets and a twice weekly farmers market steps away at the Bastille. Also we can walk to the Seine for summer sunsets in about 5 minutes, and be at the metro in 2 minutes. Place Des Vosges around the corner is an added bonus!

Perfect home away from home in the Paris Marais

  • 5 of 5

We keep coming back to this apartment for several reasons: location, comfort, cleanliness, quiet, and attention to details.

1. You can't beat the location for transportation: Right in the middle of the Marais, on the #1 Metro line between Bastille and St. Paul stops. (The top Paris sites are near the #1) and convenient buses outside the front door!

2. A safe, sweet neighborhood: great cafes and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Or less. Shop like a local for groceries.

3. The apartment is like staying at your trendy best friend's home: A super bathroom with a shower and huge bathtub and 2 sinks! A kitchen with nice plates, flatware and glasses (not cheap Ikea stuff). Fine furniture with a mix of contemporary and antiques. Great linens in the bedroom. The couch converts to an extra bed and is more comfortable than many regular beds! And bathrobes! Beautiful pillows and curtains remind you of a fancy hotel, not a rental.

4. This place is quiet. Incredibly quiet. And super clean.

5. The owner is very responsive and helpful. The welcome binder has instructions on how to use the washer and the dishwasher, plus everything else in the apartment. The list of recommended restaurants is a nice touch. So are the numerous Paris tour books others have left behind.

We've stayed in a number of VRBO places in Europe and the US. This is by far the best. The only downside of staying here is wishing you didn't have to leave.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Terrific apartment. We stayed here with our 20 year-old son who said the pull out couch was the most comfortable bed he had ever slept on. The apartment is located in a wonderful area - we walked all over the city. Alexis was easy to work with and provided many recommendations. We would come back in a nano second!

Very comfortable spacious apartment in Marais

  • 4 of 5

We only had 3 nights in Paris, although I mistakenly initially booked 4. Alexis very kindly credited me for the night we could not use.

The apartment has excellent security and is very well furnished and comfortable with a large lounge/living area. Every amenity is provided, including basic cooking ingredients (although we did no cooking).

The bed is very comfortable and the bath room spotless and spacious.

There are many excellent restaurants within 20-30 mins walk.

Alexis and the housekeeper were exceedingly helpful and caring.

An excellent apartment for time in Paris. Thankyou Alexis.

Lovely stay in Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time staying at Alexis's place in the heart of the Marais neighborhood in Paris. Its a very comfortable place, with a fully stocked kitchen, living room/dining room area, and a great big bathroom. The shower is awesome. Perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring the city. The location is really fantastic as you're close to public transport, or also a lot of great areas within walking distance. Alexis also has great recommendations for restaurants and activities to do around the city, and will definitely help make your stay that much better as someone who actually knows the area quite well! Highly recommended.
