Overview

Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

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 3rd floor (2nd by European standards) with an elevator right to the door of the apartment, this apartment looks onto two beautiful and quiet courtyards making it a particularly peaceful haven. 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 on a 160cm x 200cm bed (larger than a US queen size bed) that ensures very restful nights in the bedroom. Additionally, the sofabed in the living room 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 glass wall between the living room and bedroom has a black-out curtain that slides across for privacy or to keep the bedroom dark for someone who likes to sleep late while others enjoy the living room. The large windows fill the apartment with natural light year-round, while the black-out shades on all the windows 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!

* 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.

Wonderful, fabulous, satisfying

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I rented this apartment for 4 wonderful days. It has everything you could want or need. Michael created a modern comfortable space in the heart of a district ripe for wandering and discovering great little bistros, fun boutiques and history. The apartment is immaculate and all the furnishings are new. The pictures you see on the site are completely accurate. Michael is extremely helpful and readily available with advice and suggestions to enhance your Parisian experience. Our only complaint is that four days flew by much too quickly. I hope we can visit again in the not too distant future and will definitely rent this gem of an apartment again!

A little Gem in the heart of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location!! Not only is this lovely apartment in a wonderful neighbourhood, it is also a little gem. It is exactly as advertised. Compact, but every inch is tastefully and functionally designed. Michael was very accommodating. Although we were not reachable by email, as we originally planned, he made every effort to contract us and get us settled. Don't hesitate to book. You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic place, great location, easy host to work with

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 6 nights in August 2016. The location on a beautiful street in the heart of the Marais and close to St. Paul metro can't be beat. The apartment is updated and had everything you need, including air conditioning and a nespresso machine. I would definetly book it again and encourage friends to do so.

Lovely apartment in a great lication

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is charming and has wonderful features - an excellent shower, towel warmer!, comfortable beds and a welcome bottle of very good wine. The neighborhood is amazing - we were able to walk everywhere, but right outside the door you can find excellent shops, brasseries, sorbet, in an older and interesting area of the city. I highly recommend this for a perfect stay in Paris.

Exactly as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

For our family of four Canadians visiting Paris for the first time, the apartment was perfect. We spent a week in Paris and the apartment was ideal. The location was a great base for sightseeing, and the Marais neighbourhood was fantastic. Michael was also very informative and helpful, and offered several suggestions that helped make our time in Paris even more enjoyable.

Perfect apartment in the best area of Paris

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak more highly of this wonderful apartment in the Marais. The apartment is gorgeous, with state of the art architecture and finishings. Having stayed at hotels in Paris on previous trips, this was nicer than anything else you will find in Paris at the price point. When we come back to Paris, we will definitely be staying at one of Michael's properties because they are so outstanding. Michael was extremely helpful and professional throughput the entire process.

Map

Car: not necessary

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.
