Great location and nice clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great place and convenient location. Nice bright apartment. All positive except two things: Front door lock is tricky to operate. Not everyone was able to open it. There are two beds set up and one sofa bed but actually there was only one real bed. The other one was also a sofa bed, and obviously not as comfortable as a real bed.

Terrific apartment on historic Rue des Gravilliers (Marais)

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Atelier twice in the last two years, each time was fantastic. The apartment is well maintained and perfectly located near major attractions. The metro station is a block away. The grocery store is a block away. There are about 10 restaurants within a few steps, all very good. There are markets for bread, fruit and cheese nearby. The apartment kitchen is as nice as you will find anywhere, and very large. You have every amenity and appliance possible. The apartment is spacious and quiet. We could not have asked for better accommodations or service. The manager David will tell you all you need to know and is available by text/email 24-7. My family gives this rental 5 stars and we'd give it a 10 if that were possible. We hope to return as soon as possible. Enjoy!

Hidden Gem in Central Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment beautifully appointed perfect for those looking to experience Paris as lived by Parisians. Great markets nearby for produce, meats, fish and wine. Lovely spacious public rooms for relaxing and entertaining. Great property manager available to take care of any issues that may arise. Would return in a minute. Bonus: When we arrived there was a gorgeous basket of fresh vegetables, bread and wine sitting on the counter so we could toss together a nice meal without having to leave the premises. Bravo!

Beautiful Apt.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apt. for 4 nights in July. It was beautiful and so convenient to everything. The restaurants in the area were fantastic! The property manager, David, was excellent and very accommodating. Beds/bedrooms were all very comfortable. Loved having a washer and dryer. The only draw back was the time we were there, it was very very hot and there were no fans to alleviate the heat. I would highly recommend this apt. to anyone traveling to Paris. Fits 6 people very comfortably.

Beautiful 1 Bedroom Apt in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

I found this beautiful apt through a good friend who had stayed here on a visit to Paris with her husband. It was all I had hoped for and then some!

To begin, all of my emails and questions were answered immediately by the delightful owner, Michael. On one occasion he even called me! I was really

appreciative of his timely responses.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the property manager, David, who showed us through the apartment and welcomed us with some lovely fresh vegetables! Since I was traveling with my sisters it was nice to know that he lived nearby in the event we needed anything.

The photos of this apartment are spot on! It has an amazing modern kitchen, spacious living area (with a gas fireplace) and a very large bedroom with a really comfortable king bed. There is a beautiful iron spiral staircase to the bedroom area. The sofa downstairs opens to a sleeper which we did use. We particularly enjoyed having such a nice space to come home to at the end of our busy days sightseeing. We were there for 2 weeks and this really felt like a home.

The apartment was very clean and we did not want for anything! The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils etc. and there were plenty of bath towels. We did also make use of the washer and dryer. (They have a nice binder in the apt. with instructions for the appliances as well as other information). There are plenty of electrical outlets, an iron and board and hair dryer. Also, lots of natural light from the very large windows and plenty of indoor lighting as well.

The location is excellent for getting around and we were very close to the nearest Metro stop. The entrance is on a very small side street. There is a grocery store right near the Metro stop which was very convenient.

We did have dinner at Derriere which is just a couple of doors down and it was delicious! You definitely need to make a reservation. Around the corner on the next block there is a wonderful coffee spot called Loustic..amazing coffee!

I would definitely recommend this apt. to friends and family. In fact, I hope to be going back myself one day!

Wonderful Place.

  • 5 of 5

This place is worth renting. I stayed with a friend for 10 days and we just loved the place. We were greeted by the coordinator, and he made sure to explain all the electronics in the apt. For the ten days we were never intruded upon by the coordinator but he was always available if we needed him, which we didn't. The place is beautiful, and the design unique; it also is very clean, and quite. The apt looks like all the pictures presented in VRBO. When I return to Paris, I'll be staying in the apt again, as it really did feel like home. I loved it and hated to leave.

Le Marais...

'Le Marais,' which means 'the marsh, bog or swamp!!” is the heart of historical Paris. It sits between the Pompidou Centre to the southwest, and almost as far north as Republique. You'll find the Picasso Museum on its eastern edge and the Seine at the southern border. (These areas are all within 10 minutes walking distance.) Most of this now protected district was built in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is one of the most fashionable districts, and one of the most expensive to live in too. Full of museums and beautiful buildings and mansions, the quarter is lively thanks to countless bars; cafes and restaurants open all year long. It is in this quarter that you can stroll down the beautiful quaint streets seven days a week. This area is also still a major centre of the Paris Jewish community where delis and bakeries sell kosher food and fallafels. Just nearby is the rue des Francs Bourgeois possibly one of the most famous streets in the ' Marais’ and the heart and essence of the quartier. The atmosphere most probably the most unique in all of Paris.

Perfectly located close to the famous 'Marché des Enfants ' where the locals do their shopping and where you can buy gourmet food at reasonable prices.

The famous “Notre Dame' situated on an island on the river Seine is a mere 15 minutes away on foot and can be seen from the end of the street. Metro connections are in abundance with the nearest being only 150 yards away.
