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 apartment perfectly combines the classic Parisian charm of high ceilings and exposed beam architecture with the comfort and style of modern furnishings and amenities, including a portable A/C unit.

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 wooden flooring. This room contains everything from cable television to DVD player as well as books, games and travel guides, and the large 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 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 lots of 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 Enfants-Rouges

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!

A very nice, clean and cozy apartment, a top location. An absolute keeper!

  • 5 of 5

An absolute keeper! We will surely be back. A nice and clean apartment, the bathroom and shower a gem. The location is top notch, especially for foodies like us - a very good cheese monger, butcher, bakery, wine dealer, top quality supermarket etc... just outside. Plus good quality, authentic restaurants within walking distance. We visit Paris 1-2 times a year and have done so for many years. This time we only stayed for a week and just loved it!

A comfortable, well-equipped apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I had the same fine experience during two weeks here as the other 2017 reviewers. The apartment is exactly as pictured and described. The sofa and bed are both very comfortable, and I especially appreciated a large floor lamp with a bulb strong enough for easy reading -- the first one I've seen in a French apartment.

Besides Julie's collection of travel books about Paris, her booklet of information about the apartment and neighborhood is the best, most comprehensive one I've yet seen. I mostly followed her recommendations on shopping and eating. I'd just like to mention that besides the various places to buy fresh produce, the apartment is between two Monoprix supermarkets, one only a block away. So if you want to nip out for wine or some supplies, it couldn't be easier.

There are a great many restaurants and cafes within easy walk, and the cafes have continuous service, so you can have a meal in late afternoon if you like, unlike other places in France. The kitchen is also easy to cook in, if you'd rather make your own food.

Julie answered my many questions promptly and made my Paris stay smooth and unstressful. I would be happy to make a repeat visit.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Julie's apartment. The location is perfect. One day we took an organized food tour and half the stops were right on our street. We took full advantage of the farmer's market that is right next door which I highly recommend, as well as the cheese and wine shops, bakeries, and small grocery store within a block. Lots of cafes and restaurants within walking distance and the metro is only a few blocks away as well. It was very easy to take the train to all tourist attractions.

The apartment is small but well equipped for 2. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was great that the basics (salt, pepper, coffee) were already there. There were even a few extras I didn't expect like an extra plug adapter and the phone was great for making/confirming restaurant reservations. Also, you really don't spend a lot of time in the apartment or if you do, you're doing Paris wrong!

A few small suggestions:

There were only 2 towels and one set of sheets. It would have been nice to have an extra set of each as that's a long time to use the same ones. Also, I have long hair so immediately if I want to wash my hair I need 2 towels myself. We ended up buying extra towels from the Monoprix.

The knives also seemed like they could use an upgrade.

Overall a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for a lovely reviexw; We're glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to discover our amazing neighbourhood.... Regarding the towels and sheets: please note that we can provide our guests with additionnal towels or sheets if that is requested in advance. I simply need to know it, and I will bring them along when I will get the apartment ready. I don't leave them in the apatment as I leave all storage space for guests. And I will check and change all knives that need it, thanks for the update, I don't often try them myself haha!

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.
