About the property

As seen on House Hunters International!

Brought to you by ParlerParisApartments: On the third floor of an 18th-century building in a great Marais location near the corner of rue Charlot on rue de Poitou, La Fleur de Poitou has been fully transformed into a regal home away from home. Renovated from stem to stern in 2011 by Interior Architect Martine di Mattéo, the apartment is a colorful and shining example of what is possible when good taste and savoir faire are combined.

The apartment is comprised of two rooms and a bathroom. The large main room includes the kitchen, dining area and living room, while the second piece is the bedroom. Original beams are exposed and give a stirring sense of Paris as it once was. Large windows in the living room and bedroom overlook the street corner and send bright beams of light into the apartment all day long.

The open kitchen backsplash is a masterpiece of hand-laid tile, created by Mosaïste Véronique Husson. It is well equipped -- with full sized oven, two burner stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, washer/dryer combination, coffee maker, electric kettle and toaster. Overhead cupboards, some with glass doors, and a separate chest of drawers, contain all of the dishes, utensils, cooking implements, pots and pans that you will need to cook up any gourmet meal.

Central in the main salon is a round dining table that seats four people on plush violet velvet chairs. Overtop of the table is an eye-catching globe-shaped iron light fixture.

The inviting living room is where the purple-themed color scheme is most prominent. Against the deep purple wall sits a suede three-person sofa that pulls out to become a queen-size bed and is flanked by two end tables and their lamps. On the wall above the sofa is an original painting by local Paris artist, Pascal Amblard. There is a small coffee table in front and an easy chair to the right, between the two large windows. All of the apartment’s windows have been dressed with beautiful draperies, hand-made from sumptuous fabrics.

Opposite the sofa is the entertainment center with flat screen TV, DVD player and the cable box/server, which provides over 150 TV channels and over 11,000 (preloaded) songs for your listening pleasure.

From the living room one passes into the bedroom with its queen-size bed that can be made up as twins. The bed is surrounded by storage closets so you’ll easily be able to stow away your possessions to make you feel right at home. All of the linens and towels are provided and are of high quality.

Finally, the bathroom is yet another masterpiece of mosaic tile The sink, vanity and shower have all been beautifully hand-tiled, all with the flower pattern that gives the apartment its name – La Fleur de Poitou.

Included with the apartment is WiFi and free telephone with answering machine. Long-distance calls to land lines in over 100 countries are free. This extends to calls to cell phones in France, the US and Canada.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We found the apartment to be well situated and very well appointed. In our travels, we typically stay at vacation rentals as opposed to hotels. This adorable apartment did impress! Although we brought items such as coffee, soap, laundry and dish soaps, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the apartment was already stocked. The additional touches such as the umbrella and travel books came in very handy. The bedding and pillows were of wonderful quality. As for the location...we LOVED MARAIS! We literally walked everywhere, including the Eiffel Tower a couple of times, but you definitely need good walking shoes in Paris. The proximity to the Louve and Notre Dame was very convenient. The neighborhood is filled with lovely little clothing and jewelry boutiques with unique designs from up and coming designers. The best part was falling into a little routine each evening of walking to the boulangerie, pattiserie, formagerie and fruit markets for an evening treat and breakfast for the next morning. You could find everything you need on Rue de Bretagne (just up the block). It is worthwhile to get up early in the morning and go for a stroll while the streets are quiet when you can really appreciate the city and the peaceful feeling that falls over it in the morning.

Pied-a-terre in trendy Marais

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location of this apartment since it was close to the metro, organic grocery store (Bio c' Bon), numerous bakeries, & interesting designer clothing boutiques (e.g., Helmut Lang, Sonia Rykiel). The kitchen was well equipped & included a dishwasher & a combo washer/dryer (both came in handy). Our greeter, Hannah, was delightful -- personable, knowledgeable, dependable. The only cautions about the apartment are: 1) if you have heavy luggage it may be challenging to lug it up the stairs to the 4th floor (American) -- there is no elevator & 2) the queen-size bed has a tendency to unintentionally pull apart in the center (since it can be made into 2 twin beds).

A Little Piece of Paris

  • 5 of 5

One of the many reasons we love this magical city so dearly is how looked after we feel when we stay in any of Adrian and her caring team's chic and cosy apartments. La Fleur is gorgeously decorated with all the home comforts we could have needed and is pindrop-quiet but with Le Marais bustling away outside. As it does! Parfait!

Feel like a local, not a tourist

  • 5 of 5

We spent the latter half of our honeymoon in this lovely apartment and found all the comforts of home. It's quite convenient to walk to nearby shops for fresh groceries and bread. We like to walk a great deal, but if stairs are difficult for you, perhaps another of Paris Share's apartments would be better for you, as it is on the 4th floor of a charming historic building and has spiral stairs. This particular apartment has a well-equipped kitchen for two; we even chose to stay in one evening and cook, rather than dine out. This is a neighborhood where you will fare better if you speak French. The bed is particularly comfortable and we lacked nothing during our few days' stay. We will very likely return to La Fleur de Poitou for future visits to Paris; it far exceeds the comforts of even some of the nicer hotels we've stayed at on previous stays.

Exactly as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

A great little pied-a-terre on the 2nd (3rd) floor. For some, the original winding staircase may be a problem, but we're walkers and appreciated being up off of the street - quieter. Well supplied, clean, modern. King bed in the bedroom, Queen pullout in the living area. Close to restaurants, the metro, etc. Very accommodating & responsive management company.

Great apartment in Marais

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment. In a great neighborhood. Every day either walked to sites or rode metro which was just a short distance. Lots of cafes and shops nearby making it easy to enjoy visit in this Marais apartment. Kristian, the apartment manager was there to greet us and answer questions. Covered market is just a block away with lots of fresh produce and ethnic meals. Everything you need has been provided in apartment. Enjoyed it all. Caution, this is up three flights so not good for most disabled folks.
