About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The Marais Central apartment is located in one of Paris’ most charming locations on the Rue de Bretagne and footsteps from the Marché des Enfants Rouges. Some of Paris’ finest cafés and restaurants, as well as the beautiful Place des Vosges are within minutes walk of the apartment in the heart of the historic Marais district.

The whole apartment has been redone from carpet to ceiling with new amenities, including a portable A/C unit. It perfectly combines the classic Parisian charm of high ceilings and exposed beam architecture with the comfort and style of modern furnishings and amenities.

On entering the living room, one is instantly struck by the immense light from the two large French windows, which give a real bright and airy feeling to the room.

Traditional beams teamed with superb wooden flooring give a real warmth and comfort to the room and one instantly feels at home here. The creams, browns and greys of the furnishings appear truly beautiful against the exquisite wooden flooring. This room contains everything from cable television to DVD player as well as an Ipod dock and the large and oh-so-cozy sofa converts into a double bed for extra guests.

The apartment is a third French floor (= three flights of stairs) and the building has NO elevator.

The kitchen is open and is a pure delight to cook in. With the large markets at your doorstep full of fresh and exotic produce, you will very much enjoy cooking up that perfect French cuisine in this gem of a kitchen.

The bedroom is very inviting indeed. Decorated in warm tones and soft lighting, it is a perfect haven for a great night’s sleep. Overlooking a pretty little garden, this is a superb room for relaxing in.

The bathroom has been beautifully designed and the utmost care and attention to detail has been taken with this room. The room is very bright and contains a large shower cabinet, lavatory and sink.

This really is a gem of an apartment, enjoying space and light, full amenities and the charm of the pretty Marais district. An unforgettable stay in Paris is certainly guaranteed here!

Please note this is a fourth US floor, there is no elevator. The apartment is 37 square meters.

Why The Owner chose 3rd Le Marais

A home in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Marais Central apartment. The pastel decor and lots of windows made the place airy and bright - exactly as depicted on the website. The apartment is well-equipped. The compact kitchen includes all you need for preparing simple meals at home - if you don't choose one of the great local restaurants. (And the local markets - butcher, boulangerie, cheese shop, traiteurs, vegetable stands all make shopping for meals a delight.)

The apartment is in a great location - several convenient Metro stations, lots of local restaurants, and easy walking distance to so much of Paris!

And the booklet that Julie and Fabrice supplied was very helpful.

We can definitely recommend a stay in their Marais apartment!

The property was beautiful as well as the neighborhood and apartment wvery clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well equipped and the bed was so comfy! The views from the windows were beautiful and we kept them open most of the time. Tons of markets, restaurants & anything you need right outside your door. Don't be alarmed with the stairs entering the building they are old but in good shape to go up the three flights but once you enter the apartment it's new and well appointed. We would definitely stay their again. The metro was wonderful and would recommend it's so easy to get around.

Pretty wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended stay and are planning a return visit as I write. That pretty much says it all. Perfect for a couple. Cozy and comfortable and a very, very liveable neighborhood and location. As long as our aging knees can do the four flights of stairs, we will continue to be loyal and enthusiastic clientele!!

Excellent, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression when we opened the door was, "What a nice apartment." Happily, nothing that occurred in the two weeks that we stayed caused that opinion to change.

The apartment is bright, has good ventilation, and is well-arranged. Julie and Fabrice have provided lots of amenities like cable TV, a DVD player, and even a phone for local calls. We didn't use these, but they were available. Likewise in the kitchen. We don't cook meals when we're traveling, but the kitchen had all the equipment one would need if one were so inclined. There is even a microwave, electric tea pot, coffee maker and a dishwasher. There are several places for grocery shopping and a large Monoprice nearby, and the outdoor Marche des Enfants Rouges is a few steps from the front door.

The bedroom is compact but quite comfortable. The mattress is good, as are the pillows. Also, there are convenient lights for reading in bed. The bathroom is modern and clean. Good towels are provided. The shower is very nice with plenty of hot water.

The location is excellent. The apartment is equidistant from several Metro stops, so getting around is easy. We like to walk and explore. A good part of central Paris is in easy walking distance.

The neighborhood around the apartment is full of many different businesses plus cafes, bars, and restaurants of many types. One can find the food one wants at the price one wants to pay very easily. We appreciated Julie's mention of the Rue Dupetit-Thouars. It's a lively area for aperitifs, wine, and food. We spent a lot of time there.

We didn't meet Julie, but all of our communications from the first inquiry had quick responses.

We have been to Paris a number of times. Staying in this apartment added a level of enjoyment to our Paris experience. For two people or maybe a family with a child, this is an excellent apartment. Highly recommended.
