Overview

About the property

FULLY RENOVATED 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; quiet and fully equipped kitchen

This beautiful apartment (" Le Pied-à-Terre") has just been completely renovated (April 2015), combining period features with all modern conveniences. The high ceilings with the old, exposed wooden beams, the wooden floors and the black and white marble in the bathrooms make it truly magical, giving you a true Parisian feeling.

It is located between two courtyards, on the second floor of an 17th century house in the heart of the Marais, making it very quiet and even allowing you to sleep with open windows.

The apartment's layout and its size (75 square meter/800 square foot) will provide you with ample space to relax and to enjoy your own privacy. Ideally suited for two couples or a family with children, the two bedrooms sleep 4 guests comfortably. One bedroom has a four poster, king size bed, whilst the other has 2 single beds with unique bed-stands (all mattresses are new) . The finest Egyptian cotton linen has been chosen for your comfort and pleasure. Both have their own bathrooms (one en-suite), equipped with 1940's style fittings, black and white Carrara marble floors and Parisian Metro tiles. There is also a separate toilet. High quality face, hand and bath towels are provided. Each bedroom has got a powerful avant-garde silent Dyson (AM08) air cooler.

The sitting room is very large and has a mock fire place with many candles, antiques, modern art, leather chairs and a designer sofa, dim-able lights - a perfect place to relax before or after exploring Paris. The chef's kitchen has been designed and equipped to enable you to cook a wonderful meal. It has a lovely, large white Carrara marble work area and faces the dining area which has a stunning 19th century wooden table which can sit up to six guests. A large Freud retro style fan is at your disposal.

Naturally Pied-à-Terre has modern independent heating in each room, including the bathrooms; free high speed wifi; flat screen TV, Netflix, Apple TV, DVD player, DVD library, books, BOSE docking station, washer drier, microwave, induction hob, traditional oven, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster and dishwasher You can make free landline phone calls to over 150 countries.

This property is located in the heart of the Marais, the most vibrant arrondissement of Paris, in walking distance from many attractions like the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum, Place de Voges and even Notre Dame. The neighbourhood boosts many nice restaurants/brasseries, organic stores, patisseries and the flat is only 5-10 minutes walk away from the famous covered food market "Les Enfants Rouges" were you can buy organic fruit and vegetables, lovely fish and great French cheese.

The closest Metro station is Arts-et-Metiers 5 minutes away from Pied-a-Terre and buses and Velibs (bicycles that can be rented daily or weekly and are a great way to explore Paris) are close by. However, given Le Pied-à-Terre's central location you will most likely explore Paris on foot. The airports and the main train stations can easily be reached by public transport or by taxi and you will receive all information you need when you book the apartment. A manager will welcome you, show you around the property, give you the keys and provide you with valuable tips. He is of course available in case of emergency or for any questions you may have.

For guests who would like to come with a car, the nearest parking is located less than 150 meters from the flat and is called: "Parking Temple Alizés". Should you wish to book in advance, you get discounts using this website - http://www.parkingsdeparis.com/

Don't hesitate to come back to us if you need help on this.

About Ivan

As a child, I lived in Versailles and Paris was the city of my dreams. When I finally moved to Paris I loved exploring and savouring this wonderful and vibrant city. I always wanted to own a traditional Parisian apartment in the city centre.

My dream came true in 2004 when I purchased this property whilst living in London. I enjoyed visiting Paris regularly and staying in my apartment.

I decided to renovate the property totally and to give other people the chance to share my passion for this incredible city. Having said that, I love the apartment so much that I often visit and stay in it myself.

Ivan purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Ivan chose Arts et Métiers

The combination of 17th century Parisian charm, antique furniture, exposed beams, all modern comforts, the location, right in the heart of the Marais ,and the fact that it is incredibly quiet make the apartment unique.

The kitchen has been designed an fitted to satisfy any hobby cook and the proximity to food markets and typically French food stores make it very easy to prepare lovely meals.

Being in walking distant from so many major tourist sites and being surrounded by wonderful places where one can eat and drink without having to use public transport makes it a perfect base for a short visit or a long stay.

The manager, who lives in the same building, will take good care of you ensuring that you receive the best customer service and, as a local, he can give you wonderful recommendations.

What makes this apartment unique

Totally refurbished; incredibly quiet - sleep with your windows open in the summer! Central location

Living like a true Parisian

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a hidden jewel, nestled in the charm of the Marais. To access it, you make your way through two stone courtyards and up a wooden stair lifted straight out of a fairy tale. Inside, the place is all exposed beams, mortar, and dramatic lighting, like the setting of an 18th century painting of peasant life....but what sumptuous amenities! Crisp white sheets, thirsty and abundant towels, handy city guides, whimsical fixtures and first rate kitchen supplies. And the unit boasts not one but two marble-tiled showers with exquisite water pressure. The owner and his representative were courteous and so very helpful; in no way intrusive but available to address any concerns. This is the Marais, so you don’t get thrilling views; just the windows and rooftops of crowded buildings nearby. But it hardly matters. The apartment itself is rich with the very essence of Paris: old-world authenticity, idiosyncratic but richly appealing design, and steeped in luxury. For four glorious days, we pretended to be true Parisians!

Great apartment, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been renting from VRBO for years and this was probably our best rental to date. The apartment itself is beautiful and the attention to details made our stay even more enjoyable. And the location was great too...a straight 15 minutes walk to Notre Dame. I highly recommend this unit.

A lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

As NYC residents who live in a third-floor walk up in a 120+ year old building, this apartment truly felt like a second home for me, my husband, and 15 year old daughter, and made our stay particularly wonderful. The space itself is as lovely, well-decorated, and clean as it appears in the photos with comfortable beds, beautiful linens, and well-appointed bathrooms and kitchen. The location is ideal -- easy access to trains, shopping, markets, and the many restaurants and bars of the Marais, and within walking distance to the major sights.

Situated in an inner courtyard, the apartment was very quiet and virtually free of street noise (but we do recommend remembering earplugs if you don't already travel with them, as if the downstairs neighbor is entertaining on a weekend night with windows open, conversation does echo in the courtyard).

Ivan and the property manager Thierry were both very thoughtful and helpful before and during our stay, and quickly accommodated our request for an early arrival due to a late-spring snow storm in NY on the day of our original departure. They provided a lovely welcome basket with bottle of champagne, and a helpful guide to the apartment and neighborhood as well as numerous guidebooks (in English).

All in all, we were thrilled with our stay!

Well appointed, very comfortable and in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We were made welcome by Thierry the local manager. The apartment was very convenient for many of the sights of Paris. The kitchen was comprehensively stocked with electrical equipment, cooking utensils and crockery. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom functioned well. Everything was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay.

Great location and wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment is in a great location and is well equipped for anything you need. The stairs are narrow and we had one night (in five) where we heard neighbors talking until late. Otherwise, it was very quiet. I would definitely recommend this apartment. Great host and owner with good communication before our stay.
