Fully equipped, this 2 BR/2BA can sleep up to 6 persons, with 2 queen size beds and a very comfortable sofa bed in the living room.

The apartment contains a bright and large living/dining room with a fully equipped open kitchen, and two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom or shower room. One of the bedroom can be fitted with one queen size bed or two single beds, depending on your needs.

The entire apartment has been newly remodeled in Winter 2008 with careful attention to restore the apartment's original features (parquet floor, moldings, high ceilings) while at the same time providing all modern amenities and conveniences. It has been professionally decorated with a mix of modern comfortable furniture and some carefully chosen French antiques.

The living room area is equipped with a very comfortable (and easy-to-handle...) sofa bed. A splendid 'meuble de metier' found at the flea market can be used as a desk when checking your emails or writing some postcards... Cable TV (with CNN International and BBC World among others) and DVD player, hidden in another elegant antique piece of furniture, are also available in the living room.

Our large dining table can easily welcome 8 to 10 people, which will enable you to have friends coming over for dinner!

The first bedroom, overlooking the street, is nevertheless quiet as traffic at night is close to zero... It is equipped with large built-in closets, a queen size bed, antique nightstand and has an en-suite shower room.

The second bedroom, overlooking the building courtyard, is also equipped with large built-in closets, a TV and has its own very traditional en-suite bathroom. The beds can be adjusted as a queen size bed or two single beds depending on your needs.


There is high speed wifi, free local calls within France, free calls to cell phones and landlines to the US and Canada, and free calls to landlines in over 200 other countries (please inquire about your particular country).


The closest subway station is Republique (line 3, 5, 8,,9, 11) giving you easy access to place de la Concorde, Opera, Bastille, etc.)

A Velib stop is just at the end of the street, on place de la Republique.

Bus lines 20 et 65 (place de la République) will take you in 5 min to the Opera Bastille and in 10 mn to Gare de Lyon.


Our location is extraordinary with great restaurants, art galleries and fashionable shops at your doorstep. There are narrow streets that have not changed for centuries.

If you have young kids, you will really enjoy the vicinity of Square du Temple, just one block away from the apartment.

Two bakeries and a large supermarket are located just 3 mn away from the apartment.

On week-ends, we strongly recommend a stroll in the amazing 'Marche des Enfants Rouges' located on rue de Bretagne, where you will even be able to enjoy a delicious brunch when the weather allows...

Avoid high roaming data costs and enjoy all that technology has to offer-- 4G, unlimited calls (including abroad), and GPS services to make walking around in Paris easier-- all for the rate of 5 euros a day, essentially the cost of a fancy Parisian coffee :) Please let us know upon booking that you are interested so we can reserve a SMARTY for your stay.

About Sophie Berdah

I own this apartment and live in the same building, it has been refurbished and furnished in 2009!

Whether you want to BUY a pied a terre in Paris, or RENT a beautiful apartment in Paris, you may want to call our MY HOME IN PARIS team.


Sophie Berdah purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Sophie Berdah chose 3rd Le Marais

The Marais is an area that you'll want to visit every time you're in Paris. You'll find so many reasons to go : Centre Georges Pompidou, this amazing designed building with a lot more to offer than just a museum, la Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, a must for contemporary photos exhibits, la Place des Vosges ....

The Marais is also and mainly a place to hang out choosing the right place to have a proper lunch, wandering around the narrow streets and peeking into private courtyard and private mansions

What makes this apartment unique

Very close to metro station and at the same time in the heart of the Marais but in a quiet street!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful place...

Thanks for everything

Near the action, but not too near

  • 5 of 5

This third-story flat is tucked away in Le Marais, one block off of Plaza Republique. Quiet, clean, well appointed and safe, the unit also features ample hot water and heaters that keep out the January cold. The building is otherwise occupied by permanent residents, mostly families, so it is kept up well. The metro is one block away, and the line goes direct to the Tuilerie Jardin. The Seine is but a 10 minute walk down Rue Beranger, so you can get to Notre Dame and Sainte Chappelle in short order. Boulangeries and cafes abound; try the pan du chocolat at the boulangerie on the corner of Rue Charlot and Rue Beranger. It is two blocks from Rue Bretagne, where you can drop into a fromagerie or Manon's patisserie. In short, the location is prime, and the setting is ideal.

Spacious apartment in Exciting Marais

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment with lots of natural light and in a fantastic neighborhood. Its close to the market, Picasso Museum, cool stores and plenty of restaurants and wine stores. The comfortable bedrooms each have their own complete bathroom making this an easy place for two couples or not related adults to stay. The kitchen is small but has the essentials, including a washer/dryer. The building is quiet and feels very safe. Sophie, our host, was friendly and helpful in guiding us to local restaurants. The only hiccup to know about is that you cannot get into the apartment if you arrive early in the morning. Sophie arranged for us to leave our luggage at a hotel, but then we had to get another cab to take us to the apartment later in the day. Just a little inconvenient when you're tired from a long overnight flight. Otherwise, the apartment was perfect and made our stay in Paris all the more special.

Great place to stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The location is great for exploring the hip 11th arrondisement. The apartment was very quiet, comfortable and well equipped. Perfect for two couples, or a family. The owner was very helpful throughout. Would definitely stay again.

Professional staff with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

We actually stayed at the different property (Picasso) managed by this company after booking this particular property, due to some complications with our personal arrangements. The apartment itself was well cared for and nicely furnished. It was very safe with multiple entry points. The neighborhood was very walking friendly and close to many points of interest. While we were there the dishwasher broke. The morning we reported it, the management dispatched someone and replaced with a new dishwasher. If we return to Paris, we would definitely consider their properties first due to the service and excellent communication. We definitely love the free airport pickup service.

Perfect home base for a Paris Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for 2 couples exploring Paris. The location was ideal - easy to walk everywhere to eat or to hop on the metro. We loved the neighborhood. The building was lovely - having this space was so much nicer than 2 hotel rooms could have been. Sophie was always available and gave us good advice. The apartment had a great notebook with instructions and suggested places to go and to eat. Our favorite breakfast spot was just around the corner, Seasons. The complimentary airport pickup was wonderful after a long flight. When we return to Paris, we will stay here again!!

Great Apartment in the heart of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 including a 3 year-old boy. This apartment was absolutely awesome. We loved it the minute we got into the courtyard. It was such a beautiful building, with high ceilings and those beautiful tall windows. I need to find out what time period was that building from. The living room was spacious and plenty of room for a toddler to run around without bumping into furniture. We loved the kitchen table where we had our wonderful croissant breakfast every morning. The bedrooms and bathrooms were the perfect size. Each bedroom had its own closet, but we felt there was not enough room since one of the closet doors was locked. It would have helped if we had the extra space, but we managed. The bedding was very comfortable and the added bonus of the sofa bed was just great for our family of our size.

The booking process was great from beginning to end. Both Gaela and Sophie were fantastic. The pick up from the airport was really appreciated since we arrived into Paris under a heavy rain. The apartment looks exactly the way you see it advertised. TV in every bedroom and living room (even though, we didn't turn them on). We also used the dishwasher every day and the washer/dry once. Everything worked to perfection.

This area is not only lovely, but there are some many restaurants around it. There is also a beautiful park which was great since we took our grandson there quite a few times.My husband even played Ping-Pong at the park one morning with the local seniors. We were living like the locals. We went to the bakery every morning to buy the fresh baguettes and croissant. There is a book inside the apartment with a lot of recommendation for restaurants and once you start exploring the area, you will come up with your own ones. We were there for six nights and tried five different ones and they were all great. We had no problem with the language since most restaurants in this area speak English. We all loved our stay and wished we had money to buy an apartment in that building and move to Paris. We can only dream!
