About the property

The best apartment in the area, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath + separate toilet (Sleeps 2)

In the heart of the Marais, my flat is the perfect home base for just about anyone who wants to spend their Paris vacation in comfort and style. This clean space provides all of the comfort and style of a boutique hotel and is the perfect 'chez vous' to come home to after a day spent shopping, fooding, site seing or just wandering the streets of Paris.

As with a hotel booking, I provide one to one service from the booking process to your check out. I personnaly welcome you to the flat and show you around so you do not feel alone in Paris.

The flat is a haven of peace in the heart Paris.

This elegant Paris vacation flat has a large living room, which gives onto an open kitchen + a cozy bedroom + a seperate shower and toilet. Refurbished in 2015 and renovated in 2011, the flat features five large windows flooding the flat with light and overlooking a park and church.

The name Art Flat came about as I was inspired by a hostel in the South of France exposing various resident artists' work. I had the desire to reproduce the concept in Paris.

Located in a 17th-century 'hotel particulier', the flat is 3 flights up a stairwell encased by windows looking onto the courtyard (no elevator - sorry!)

I view my place as a ‘boutique hotel’ and do my best to bring you a high standard accommodation. I guarantee a perfectly located, clean and well-maintained apartment. I make every effort to keep it up to the high standards I believe my clients deserve I provide all the amenities necessary for your stay at Art Flat including: Towels and linens; wifi; free phone; TV; soap & shampoo; hand soap; toilet paper; paper towel; a supply of ethanol for the fire place; Cleaning products to run the machines and much more.

About Marco

Hi, my name is Marco and I'm a American photographer living in Paris. I've been living here for the past 22 years. Caroline is French and works as a photo and tv stylist. We live near the Sacré Coeur in the north of Paris with a great view overlooking the city!

Marco purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Marco chose Paris

I chose this flat and area because it is in the best area to stay in Paris, convenient to all parts of the city and minutes from the Seine river. Contrary to other 'in' neighborhoods for travelers, the Marais offers a real Parisian feel to it.

What makes this apartment unique

The unique benefit of this flat is its convenient location, the view, the light pouring in the flat all day. As it is a rental only flat, I treat it as a boutique hotel. The flat is not lived in so it is clean, fresh and free of personal belongings.

As you can see I have included unique contemporary art which I change occasionally to bring you a real Parisian art experience, the reason why Paris became Paris!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Art Flat was the fifth different Paris apartment we have rented. Depending on availability, we may never stay anywhere else again! The décor is elegant and tasteful, the lighting and kitchen and bathroom are all well above average, and the location is ideal. But above all, the number of windows, view over the park, and glowing north light makes this apartment bright and happy. We cannot recommend it too highly.

A great home base to explore Paris

  • 5 of 5

A clean and very livable space that served as our home base as we explored Paris. All the amenities were great and served us well. In a great neighborhood that one can enjoy on its own.

As Advertised Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

The property is better than advertised. Incredible quiet location with main attractions, restaurants, shopping, grocery and train station right out the front door. Marco was always quick to respond with answers to questions and gave good advice!

Very nice flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This clean, roomy, and nicely decorated flat contributed to a wonderful stay in Paris! The bed was very comfortable, and the air conditioning in the bedroom was appreciated on a couple of warm nights. The espresso machine was nice for morning coffee before enjoying the roomy shower. The location, in the heart of the Marais, was perfect for our 8 night stay, with a subway station a few blocks away. Lugging our bags up the stairs was a bit of a struggle on arrival, but otherwise our stay was ideal! If we return to Paris, we will consider staying here again.

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Paris September 2015. Marco's apartment was perfect for us in so many ways. It was very clean, comfortable bed in separate bedroom, nice open living room and kitchen. The space also has lovely windows which overlook a sweet park across the street and a local church. We shopped locally and made all of our breakfasts in. This is a walk-up in a beautiful historic building. There is good lighting in the stairway, and the apartment is very quiet in the evening. Marco provides nice linens, personal care products and a coffee machine. Last but not least, the location in Le Marais is amazing: great neighborhood, cafes, markets, Velib and transit close by. Marco's takes good care of his place and it shows.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week in the Art Flat over the New Years holiday 2016. It was perfect. The owner is a wonderful host and was incredibly easy to work with. The flat itself is located in a great neighborhood and was the perfect place from which to explore Paris. I highly recommend this owner and rental!
