Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday studio in .4th Pompidou Centre/Le Marais

A luxurious & stylish penthouse in the heart of Paris

Located in one of the most fashionable areas of the city with museums, art galleries, shopping, historical architecture and beautiful parks at your doorstep, this stylish penthouse apartment is a true gem. It has the rare combination of being located in the heart of the city, in the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris, and on the 6th and top floor with an elevator (up to the 5th floor) of a beautiful building which gives the apartment sweeping views over the rooftops of the city and of numerous monuments in the distance. The street the apartment is on dates to the 1100s and is one of the most historic and beautiful in the city. The apartment is air-conditioned, with an equipped kitchenette, modern bathroom, and clothes washing machine and dryer.

The apartment was completely renovated (late 2012): the bathroom, kitchen, and all the appliances are brand new, while the original elements of the apartment have been carefully restored, including the antique black marble fireplace, original oak floors, and beautiful 18th century oak beams. The apartment is flooded with light due to its southern exposure, two windows and three skylights. The windows are equipped with blackout shades and the skylights have remote-controlled motorized exterior shades that allow you to easily keep all the light out for mornings when you want to sleep late or go to bed early as you adjust to the time change.

At your doorstep are numerous restaurants, art galleries, and in particular many trendy designer clothing boutiques. The shops and restaurants on the street and surrounding area have the unique distinction in Paris of being open on Sundays, which keeps the area full of life, and makes conveniences such as grocery stores available 7 days a week – a rarity in Paris. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum, the beautiful Place des Vosges, and Notre Dame Cathedral, as well as numerous trendy clothing boutiques and galleries. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes through the heart of the city directly to numerous monuments and sites, such as the Musée du Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe. A set of English language architectural walking tours is provided with maps and photographs to help you discover your incredible neighborhood as well as the rest of the city.

The bathroom has an antique terracotta floor, complemented with pale white glass mosaic tiles. The bathroom skylight provides ample natural light in addition to the embedded ceiling lighting and an above-mirror light. An electrical outlet in the bathroom allows you to plug in shavers and toothbrushes (an outlet head adapter is provided - please make sure your appliances function on European 240 volt circuits), and a hairdryer and magnifying mirror are also provided. The bathroom is small but has all of the essentials.

The high quality bedding and larger than queen size bed (160 cm – which is between a queen and king size bed) and white pressed linens provide very comfortable sleeping. A closet and hangars are provided.

The white glass cabinets and white stone countertops in the kitchenette conceal a well equipped kitchen, including a microwave, refrigerator, cook top with an aeration hood above it that is perfect for picking up fresh food at local markets or nearby grocers and enjoying in the apartment. The kitchen is equipped with plates, glasses, flatware, wineglasses, pots, pans, a toaster and a coffee maker.

The apartment has a clothes washing machine and separate clothes dryer (available long-term stays of 1 week or longer), as well as an iron and ironing board, providing complete laundry facilities.

The double-paned glass windows and double-paned glass skylights keep the apartment insulated and quiet.

The apartment has a HD flat screen television with hundreds of cable channels, including numerous English language news stations such as CNN and BBC.

Unlimited high-speed wifi connection is provided, as is a telephone with free international calls to all numbers in the United States, Canada, and landlines in Europe and several other countries.

You will be met upon arrival at the apartment and given a full explanation of how to get the most out of your stay in the apartment as well as assistance in getting oriented to the neighborhood.

The apartment is a non-smoking no-pets apartment.

Wine, flowers, and all linens and towels are provided.

*An adjacent penthouse studio is also available that can sleep an additional 3 people for couples or families traveling together who want to stay in the same building (VRBO # 442192)

About Michael

The owner is an architect and author who specializes in renovating historic buildings in the heart of Paris. He has written extensively about the architecture of Paris, including well-known guides to the architecture of the city.

Why Michael chose .4th Pompidou Centre/Le Marais

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 and I could not resist purchasing it.

What makes this studio unique

Location. Surrounded by museums, incredible food, fashion boutiques, and quintessential old-world charm. Beautiful quiet building with the rarity of having an elevator and sweeping views over the city from its top floor location.

Perfect base for all your Paris adventures

  • 5 out of 5
We can't say enough good things about this apartment - thoughtful touches such as the wine bottle and flowers to the spare adapter plug and the Paris Architecture guide made all the difference for a comfortable stay. Location is just fantastic as you're in the heart of the Marais and once your windows are closed, there is no issue of city noise at all. You can walk everywhere but for non-walkers the metro is about 3 mins walk away that will get to the majority of tourist sights. The bathroom while tiny by American standards had a generous sized shower stall with a big rain shower head - so soothing after a long day of sightseeing!

Fab bijou apartment

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful apartment in a great spot, perfect for exploring Paris. The decor is lovely and the finishing touches made for a special experience. Major sights such as Notre Dame are in walking distance but if you would rather, the metro is convenient. There are lots of restaurants and shops on the doorstep and the beautiful Places des Voges is just a short walk down the road. The whole area is buzzing with life. We had a wonderful time there and Michael and partner couldn't have been more helpful and accessible. Hopefully we will visit again.

Immaculate apartment close to everything!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here for four nights on our honeymoon- a lovely romantic spot that is clean, safe, and perfectly equipped for two. Micheal was very professional and easy to contact- he was also very helpful in recommending restaurants, and his architecture walks were an unexpected treat.

The apartment is extremely well located- we spent our time wandering the city on foot, and when we were tired, were able to connect on the metro back. We visited all major Paris sights this way. The neighborhood also has some tasty restaurants, bakeries, and shops- everything was close by so it was great to pop out for some croissants in the morning to complement with the complementary espresso- or some charcuterie in the afternoon to go with the excellent bottle of wine provided by Micheal.

We would definitely recommend, and will plan to return ourselves!

My Paris in July vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We had a delightful stay in our immaculate apartment. Everything was provided for us. Coffee, phone service, hair dryer, TV, washer-dryer, iron, even umbrellas... that we didn't need. The location was wonderful. We enjoyed all the great food and shops in the neighborhood and we rode the metro all over the city. It's a easy walk to Notre Dame. Michael had beautiful flowers and a nice bottle of wine awaiting our arrival. He assisted us in every way to make our stay enjoyable. Helping us with advise on tours, arranging for our taxi to the airport for our return home. He went above and beyond...I'd do it again in a minute.

Loved it!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our time at this wonderful apartment. This is a very very well appointed spot. Michael is the perfect person to rent a place. Gives accurate information, follows through so quickly with any question you might have. We had never visited Paris, nor had we rented an apartment out of the country. Michael made it so easy. Flowers, wine, fabulous cards regarding walking tours in Paris and tons of historic information that Michael wrote and photographed himself. Very impressive. The apartment is in a perfect location to walk and enjoy the vibrancy of the area. I loved the fact that it was modern in all of its features and yet the building is 200 + years. It has a elevator that is the fastest ever. We loved it and would definitely recommend to our friends..

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.
