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.

Why Alexis chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

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!

Wonderful flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and also bringing our son for his first visit to Europe. We wanted a nice place in a central location and we hit the jackpot with this wonderful little apartment in the heart of downtown Paris. There is a full kitchen and a very large bathroom. As well there is a living room and dining room, and a separate bedroom to the side. We highly recommend this place and hope to be back soon.

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.

Perfect location, and very nicely furnished.

  • 5 of 5

It has everything one might need; the owner is very thoughtful, and there are lots of nice touches, both in decor and in provisions for a comfortable stay. While it can be a bit dark, especially in December, since it is on an inner courtyard, that also means it's wonderfully quiet. With great bakery, cheese shop, wine stores, fruit stand, and more just across the street, close to both Bastille and St Paul metro stations, and a ten minute walk to the Seine and yet another line (Sully-Morland) - or just a great base to explore the Marais shops and restaurants. This was our second stay in this apartment, and we were not disappointed.

Over the top AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this was my first time to Paris and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place to call home for our vacation. From the moment we booked, Alexis & team made sure we had everything before our arrival and had a lay of the land. The flat location is two minute walk from the Bastille metro stop and every restaurant right outside of the door was amazing!! One restaurant not to be missed is Chez Mademoiselle!!

Note, I'd heard the stories of the rude Parisians but we didn't find one and EVERYONE was over the top nice and hospitable.

Au revoir et a bientot

Perfect apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for my husband and myself. It was beautifully decorated and comfortable in size. We loved the full size shower; a rarity in Paris! We also appreciated the pull out sofa in the living room - made it easy to wake up at night and not disturb the other person. Although we didn't use it, the kitchen was fully stocked, and there were thoughtful extras - plug converters, a stand of umbrellas, a bottle of wine waiting to welcome us. All the details involved in the rental were well organized and executed perfectly. We will be happy to rent this apartment again the next time we're in Paris.

The place to stay in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Location Location Location ; Le Marais - I do not think there is a better place to stay in Paris. Walk to the Metro, numerous shops in the neighborhood, great cafes, near charming Place Des Vosges, go running along the nearby Seine - the list goes on and on. We did not feel like tourists but more like Parisians! The apartment is spectacular. The online photos of the apartment are quite accurate. Very clean and comfortable - a home away from our home. Alexis left us detailed instructions on how to use everything from the modern appliances to the internet phone (great to call the US). She also left a list of restaurants, which we did take her up on, along with recommendations of things to do and places to shop (we received this from her in advance of arriving which helped in planning our stay). She was extremely helpful in responding to our questions prior to our stay. It was really nice to have a shop right next door for some necessities (and the shop keeper is quite friendly especially after telling him we are a guest of the "American Girl" from next door). We would definitely stay in this apartment during our next trip to Paris and I strongly recommend this apartment for your stay. I can assure you will be as satisfied as we were.

Of course, also restaurants, cafes, clothing stores, museums and more!!

Other Activities: Bastille Farmers Market twice a week, the river Seine and Ile St Louis a 5 minute walk. Restaurants and shops galore. Super safe area.
