I have done my best to make Marais-Beaubourg both comfortable and luxurious. I decorated the apartment with beautiful furniture and elegant details. I guarantee a clean and well-maintained apartment. I make every effort to keep it up to the high standards I believe my tenants deserve.

Julien purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Julien chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

I want you to be part of stay in unique surroundings and explore the city like a local. This apartment took your breath away when you first step in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay at this stylish apartment very much. We are a family of 4 - mom, dad, 15 year old son and 12 year old daughter. The location was fantastic - we could walk to Notre Dam and Pompidou Center, we rented bikes to ride to Eiffel Tower & Louvre, and the Paris metro was close by and easy to manage. Numerous good restaurants and shops nearby.



Communication with Julien was always swift and the arrangements were easy. We used Paypal for all of the financial transactions which worked out very well.



It was a perfect place to stay - so elegant, very well decorated. The views out the multiple windows were simply wonderful - nothing beats waking up to the beautiful city of Paris. Although the location is central, the actual street is quiet. We slept very well. We found that staying in an apartment with full kitchen helped keep our food budget manageable.

C'est magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It is located in one of the best neighborhoods in Paris, filled with bakeries, cafes, restaurants, stores and two Metro stations. The apartment itself is very comfortable and Julien has thought of everything to make it feel like home, down to the computer with printer to print museum passes, boarding passes and train tickets. The bed and sofa are very comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you might need. To Americans, the apartment might seem small at first, but you do get used to it - to the point that you wonder why you need so much space back home. The huge windows make the apartment feel larger since they let in so much light and fresh air - though if you haven't lived in an urban environment before, the sound of trash trucks and passers-by can take some getting used to. Yes, the apartment is on the fifth floor with no elevator, but you get used to that, too. Finally, note that the apartment does come with an air conditioner, but we never needed it since it cooled off at night even after hitting almost 80 degrees. We will be back!

Great Location! Comfortable beds. Would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

What we liked: Great location and comfortable beds - the bed in the bedroom is a true king size bed (even for Americans) and the sofa bed was a comfortable queen. The apartment was quite clean with all necessary kitchen tools. Of course it was on the small side, given it's central location in Paris, but we did not feel overly cramped with a family of 4 (including 2 adult children). Even the shower was adequately sized, which is rare in Paris. We really appreciated the restaurant suggestions and number for a taxi company. Despite being in the middle of Paris, the apartment was relatively quiet at night and our sleep was not disturbed. There were many bakeries and food shops nearby, so we were well supplied with fresh baguettes and pastries for breakfast every morning and had no trouble getting things for the 2 dinners we cooked in the apartment.

What was not so great - all relatively minor concerns: Check in procedure was relatively inflexible - we ended up paying 35 Euro extra because our arrival was delayed (15 for being late, 20 for coming after 8pm). Of course, it's our fault for being late, but more flexibility would have made things more pleasant and less stressful. The apartment is on the 4th floor (5th to Americans) up a relatively small winding stairwell, which was undergoing renovations during our stay, so the apartment smelled of paint and varnish and needed to be aired out regularly. Some extra towels would also have been appreciated.

Everything taken altogether, I would definitely stay there again and recommend this apartment to others.

Well located

  • 4 of 5

A small but comfortable flat in the heart of the Marais. Steps away from excellent restaurants, patisseries and grocery stores. Only a few minutes to the Metro (Rambuteau) and the Centre Pompidou is near as well. Pedestrian-only streets nearby make for interesting strolling.

My only regret would be the flat is situated on the fourth floor and can be a bit of a climb after a day out walking.

There is everything that you would need in the flat as far as amenities go. However, if you're having a night in, bring your own entertainment, the TV channel choices are limited from an English perspective and there is very little in the way of sports, in any language.

But I guess that's not really the reason you are in Paris, is it?

Plus que parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons logé du 15 au 22 nov. 15 soit immédiatement après les attentats du Bataclan. Nous nous sommes senti en sécurité dans cette appartement très bien protégé que seule les locataires peuvent y entrer. L'appartement est magnifique et le lit king est super confortable, je n'ai jamais aussi bien dormi à l'extérieur de chez moi. L'appartement est tranquille, il n'y a pas de bruit et de bon rideau dans la chambre pour une noirceur parfaite. Le propriétaire possède deux appartements dans le même logement donc si vous voulez y aller avec des amis, vous pourrez rester un au dessus de l'autre. Pour les gens à mobilité réduite l'appartement est au 4e étages avec escalier donc soyez en forme. L'appartement se trouve dans un quartier gai, mais il n'y a pas de problème même si on est hétéro, il y a beaucoup de resto et épicerie prêt du logement et métro Hôtel de ville est à 3 min à pied. Nous vous recommandons donc ce logement sans hésitation et Julien est à votre écoute.

Great location, Great Space!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Marais apartment for 10 days in July 2015. Julian was very responsive before our arrival and during our stay. We had a few questions and he responded quickly. Oliver was kind and showed us how to access everything in the apartment upon our arrival. The neighborhood is great and markets and shops are just a block away to stock the kitchen if that is what you want. The kitchen is well equipped with pans, utensils, glassware of all kinds. The Nespresso machine was great. The living room was comfortable and spacious. The restroom was a typical European WC, but very functional and big enough. The bedroom was perfect. The bed is comfortable and big. There is plenty of closet space to unpack all of your things, plus room to store your luggage. The AC can be moved from room to room and there are doors to close off to cool just the room you are in. We moved the AC to the bedroom at night and closed the door and was plenty cool for sleeping during a very hot first part of July. The one negative was only being able to run the AC at night so you came home to a warm apartment in the evening. Most of the time the evenings were very cool so it wasn't a problem but for about four days it would have been nice to come home to a cool apartment. The apartment is on an upper level and there is no lift. The stair case is spiral and sometimes the stair well is dark. The light switches are helpful but not all of them have working lights. We loved this apartment and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Fantastic Marais location with shopping on rue Rambuteau including fresh fish, an Italian deli, a famous pastry shop and fresh vegetable and fruit store. There is also a large choice of bistros and restaurants nearby. The dance centre with courtyard restaurant is a must! Its only a short walk to the Picasso museum, Carnavalet museum and the Place des Vosges. The Notre Dame is just over the River Seine..... of course the Beaubourg museum is only 200 meters away.
