This apartment is located in the court of a building on a ground floor. It has a feeling of a artist cottage and it is very quiet. Much appreciable after being on the busy streets!

The much coveted Marais district needs little introduction. Next to your door, the famous rue de Bretagne with its market. It is an easy, pleasant walk to the Picasso Museum, Musee Carnavalet and Place des Vosges, through a labyrinth of tiny medieval streets lined by magnificent 'Hotels Particuliers.' Restaurants and specialty food stores abound! A charming market square (Square du Temple) bustles with cafes and restaurants.

One block away is one of the most divine delicatessen shops street of Paris, Rue de Bretagne, and a daily open air market (Marché des Enfants Rouges) where you will find the finest, most eclectic, cheese, wine, vegetable and meat shops in town. Parents with children will love the Square du Temple and its playground across the street. The square, popular still, was a favorite hang out for the aristocracy and 'thinkers' of the 17th century. This area is the trendiest of Paris. Many famous place are just a block away; for example, the 'Cafe Charlot' where famous actors come spent time, 'Chez Omar', a very popular restaurant open everyday for the last 30 years!

If shopping is your love, the cutting edge shops of the rue des Francs-Bourgeois are steps away! Notre Dame is at 15 mn walk. Many attractions are at walking distance, A large choice of metro lines and buses take you wherever your fancy leads you.

Light and bright and roomy in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Two Grandparents, our adult daughter and our 8 year old granddaughter found this light filled artist's apartment the perfect place to introduce our granddaughter to Paris as we did her mother 30 years ago. The space was great for all of us to find our place, the location was walking or easy Metro distance to any of the places we visited. The apartment was outfitted for all our needs and after a little examination we figured out the French appliances and were even able to use the washer and dryer after being caught in a dramatic Paris rainstorm. The apartment was spacious except for the kitchen. Paris is a busy city, but the location of the apartment in a secured open air courtyard made for quiet sleeping. It is not a fancy or luxurious apartment, but certainly clean and very

French feeling which helped make our stay feel like an authentic Paris experience. And did I say we loved the neighborhood. We would stay there again and heartily recommend the place.

Fantastic apartment couldn’t ask for more

  • 5 of 5

From the first the owner was responsive to every request. Paulo the caretaker met us as scheduled,showed us everything necessary including how to use washer/drier. Every item we required was waiting for us including cocoa, coffee and cereal. A/c worked perfectly. Duvets and pillows highest quality cotton. Neighborhood full of shops and cafes. Totally quiet and safe location. It was July so noisy and crowded on streets in neighborhood but not once in courtyard. Couldn’t ask for more. There is a full on street market every weekend 9-9 wall to wall vendors. Lots of traffic and teen age kids loved it. This is a real find.

Great location to get a feel for living in Paris

  • 4 of 5

The place is in a great location with lots of shops and restaurants close by. Subways stations are also very close and make it easy to get to the sightseeing locations and to Gare du Nord or Gare du Est. The place is comfortable, though the kitchen is very small. It is okay for preparing breakfast or light meals but more challenging to prepare dinners. The place has air conditioning, which was fantastic as it was a little warm in Paris. Most places in EU do not have air conditioning. There is only one bathroom. The place is probably best for 4 guests, though it accommodated 5 people during our visit. The host was easy to communicate with and Paulo was very helpful in getting us settled down when we arrived.

Quaint flat in a lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The flat was close to restaurants and shops. We could walk everywhere easily. It was a quiet street even though close to cafes. There was plenty of room for our family of 4.

Nice property with flaws

  • 3 of 5

The space itself is very nice and in a great area filled with excellent markets and access to Metro and buses. However, there were some minor problems in the kitchen: a small leak when it rained; ants (not infested, but enough to be an irritation) and; no stove for roasting, just an electric range top and microwave-which is really a shame given the great availability of fresh produce, butcher shops and specialty shops so close. The ants and leaking is fixable, the stove issue given the size of the kitchen, maybe not

On the plus side-the owners agent was very responsive, but if you want to cook, I can't give mre than 3 out of 5 stars.

Owner's Response: There was a huge storm and unfortunately the water went thru a small hole in the ceiling window ( it is fixed now) and few ants took refuge inside the apartment overnight. It was well indicated that there was no stove. You are the first guest who is asking for one . And here came the solution! I replaced the microwave with a combi microwave/oven so now we can bake , or roast the wonderful market products that is being sold on the famous rue de Bretagne. Thank you for giving me the idea!

a quirky property in a great location but in need of TLC

  • 3 of 5

Like previous reviewers we loved the location and atmosphere of the property. Arrangements for check in also ran smoothly. There are many restaurants nearby as well as the covered market, bakeries and supermarkets. However, the property is clearly in need of some attention e.g. the kitchen tap unit was almost falling off, the kettle and coffee maker weren't working (although a replacement for the former arrived quickly when we asked for one), the thermostat in the fridge was wonky and froze items on certain shelves, and the supply of bedding and pillows was a bit basic. The systems for switching on the loo light and for flushing the toilet were also unique! With a bit of upgrading this property would be fabulous.
