Overview

4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Studio Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious studio apartment in the heart of Paris

Located in the heart of the charming and fashionable Marais neighborhood (4th arrondissement) in the center of Paris, this fully renovated and beautifully maintained apartment possesses the perfect balance of historic beauty combined with high-tech modern conveniences: from ultra high-speed fiber optic WIFI Internet, to a state-of-the-art Miele clothes washer and dryer. Ideal for couples, individuals, or a couple of friends who want to spend the perfect holiday in an authentically Parisian apartment without sacrificing any modern comforts, this apartment is a luxurious and incredibly comfortable haven in the heart of one of the most desirable and safe neighborhoods to be in. Located on the top floor (6th floor) with an elevator to the 5th floor and then one easy flight of stairs, this apartment affords sweeping views over the iconic rooftops of Paris, including a view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. Foodies will fall in love with the array of eateries surrounding the apartment and some of the best restaurants in the city, and those with a taste for fashion will find themselves in the middle of a seemingly unending labyrinth of designer boutiques mixed among high fashion shops and art galleries.

LOCATION: As a resident of a centuries-old building on a beautiful winding granite cobbled street, which even by Parisian high standards is considered a particularly beautiful and charming street, you will have museums, art galleries, incredible food and the latest in fashion at your doorstep. It is also just steps away from the beautiful Place des Vosges, numerous museums, parks and the river quays for romantic walks along the Seine. Additionally, the shops and restaurants in this neighborhood have the unique distinction of being open on Sundays, a rarity in Paris, which gives you the convenience of having everything you need available to you 7 days a week. The neighborhood is so popular on Sundays that the streets are closed off to cars and the area becomes a pedestrian zone for the day.

SLEEPING: Fall asleep on the highest quality mattress and crisp white pressed linens that ensure very restful nights. There are two sleeping areas: the loft space with a 140cm x 200cm bed (larger than a US full size bed) and a sofabed that amazes guests with its comfortable and incredibly firm full-size mattress that is 160cm x 200cm (also larger than a US queen size bed). The large skylights and southern exposure fill the apartment with natural light year-round, while the remote-controlled electric skylight shades allow you to sleep late or go to bed early if you need to transition to the time change; this is particularly useful in the summer when it can be light out until as late as 11:00pm! Fall asleep looking into the Paris sky, watching the beam of the Eiffel tower brush the clouds overhead, or on a clear night looking up at the stars.

* 2 guests are asked to use 1 bed. If 2 guests would like to use separate beds, please indicate 3 guests when making the booking.

EATING: A white stone counter top and white glass cabinets conceal a full service kitchen that is ideal for picking up food at local markets and at nearby bakeries, cheese, chocolate and wine shops and enjoying in the apartment. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, oven-microwave, cook-top, and built-in aeration hood and lighting. A short walk from one of the biggest open-air food markets in Paris at the nearby Bastille, foodies will find themselves in culinary heaven with both internationally lauded haute-cuisine, as well as up and coming restaurants and bistrots surrounding the apartment.

About Michael

I fell in love with this property because of its incredible location in the heart of the city on a beautifully picturesque street, combined with the historic charm of the surrounding Marais neighborhood (with its famous food and fashion boutiques and museums). Add to that the fact that there is an elevator (only 1 in 200 buildings in this historic area have elevators) and that it has sweeping views over the city, this is truly a special place.

Why Michael chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

Location. Surrounded by museums, incredible food, fashion boutiques, and quintessential old-world charm.

Live in Paris like a local

  • 5 of 5

This was the first of what my wife and I hope will be many trips to Paris.

My friends and family always boasted about how lovely the city is and we found it to be that and much more.

Staying for a week at this lovely apartment gave us the chance to really experience Paris as a local. The apartment is in a wonderful neighborhood with easy access to the metro, shopping and restaurants.

The apartment was beautifully decorated with all the amenities one would expect from their own home. We were greeted at the door and given a quick "things to know" about our temporary home. The lovely bottle of wine gift on the table near a window that looked at Les Marais was just the right touch of "Welcome Home".

My wife and I can't wait to go back to Paris and stay here again.

PS: Michael and Suzanne made it easy for us to rent the apartment --- every step of the way.

Thank you!

Hugo & Adriana

Marais Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this lovely apartment and we are talking about making it our regular base for Paris trips. We arrived very late on the Eurostar, but Michael was able to arrange access for us without any problems (and the bottle of wine in the flat was very welcome too). The apartment was spotlessly clean as before and very comfortable. The location could not be better, in the heart of medieval Paris, with any number of cafes, restaurants, etc within a few minutes' walking distance, and because the Marais is traditionally the Jewish quarter, also open on Sundays. Thanks also to Michael for letting us leave our bags in the apartment on Sunday until our late afternoon departure! Hope to visit again before too long

Beautiful Parisian Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

It is my pleasure to share that I have enjoyed extended stays at the owner's homes on numerous occasions, and the experience always exceeds my expectations. I have a great regard for this gentleman's classy professionalism. Of utmost importance, he has proven to be trustworthy and dependable in timely communication. The owner consistently goes above and beyond to make guests feel welcome in his homes. Honestly, I would never consider a stay elsewhere in Paris.

The greeting upon my arrival was well coordinated and very useful. After traveling, I appreciated the convenience of shampoo and soap provided as well as the pastries and coffee. Wi-Fi was available and very fast. Phone calls to America and other countries could be made from the apartment at no charge. Also, his homes are decorated with a gorgeous orchid. To me, it is all these thoughtful details that have made my stays in his homes so memorable.

The apartments are located within a safe and trendy upscale neighborhood known as Le Marais, which is incredibly charming with its cobblestone streets, boutiques, and restaurants. His homes are luxurious and cozy, decorated with lovely antique pieces. It's an experience that inevitably makes you feel that you are truly immersed in the beauty and history of Paris. The location is ideal, as you will find yourself within walking distance of several monuments and the Saint Paul station of the Paris Métro.

Great Apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my 80+ year old father for a week and we absolutely loved it.

The apartment was well designed and immaculate. I was impressed by its cleanliness, organization, and decor. The space itself is small, but everything fits comfortably and I did not feel cramped. It was easy, due to the efficiency of how the space is set up, to establish a routine (as a traveler, esp. one with an elderly parent, this made the experience very enjoyable).

When I come back to Paris, I fully intend to stay in this apartment again, and would actually book my flight around availability. I slept in the loft, which I greatly enjoyed. Getting up and down did require I use a ladder. There was a pull-out in the main space, and that worked just fine for my father. As I mentioned above, the apartment does work best when used within routine. It is a bit small to "hang out" in all day. It works best for people who plan to explore and who want a very Parisian experience.

Step outside and you're right in the heart of Le Marais. Great location! It is a few minute walk to the subway, which can take you ALL OVER. I basically was able to easily walk to a cheese store, a bread place, a nice wine shop.

Michael was also wonderful to deal with. He was professional and prompt. We have a delightful trip and I am looking forward to going back someday.

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect apartment for my first visit to Paris. Michael was a great host and communication was excellent.

The sofabed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. I wouldn't hesitate to stay on my next visit.

Map

The apartment is located in the heart of the city, in the Marais, which is the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris (the street the apartment is on was created in the 1100s and is one of the most beautiful in the city, paved in granite, and lined with 19th century street lamps). The surrounding area is full of restaurants, art galleries, and high-fashion shopping. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum (the museum of the history of Paris), the beautiful place des Vosges, Notre Dame Cathedral, and numerous others. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk from the apartment to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern automated Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes right through the heart of the city directly to numerous monuments and sites, such as the Musée du Louvre and Arc de Triomphe.
