This 750sqft apartment is located on 3rd floor (2nd French floor) of a XIXth century building in Northern Marais, a few steps away from the charming Square du Temple and 2 blocks away from the famous rue de Bretagne and its amazing open air market. 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.

Sophie

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

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5-nights while visiting Paris. The apartment is in a very secure building; the location is right around the corner from restaurants, shops, and a major metro station. The apartment was well equipped and easily accommodated the 5 of us, 2 couples and a teenager. If you leave the windows open you will get street noise, but is was part of the charm. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our 12 year old granddaughter to Paris. The apartment Enfant Rouge is in a perfect location in northern Le Marais. It is on a very quiet street perfectly nestled between to other bustling areas with markets, shops and restaurants. It is a 3 minute walk to the metro hub so it is convenient to get to all locations in the city.

The apartment itself is well appointed with inventive art and had all the amenities we needed for a week. It is a charming place for two couples or a family of 4 (or more if you use he sleep coach).

The owner Sophie was extremely helpfu before and during our stay. We could not have been happier with our stay. Thank you!!!

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.
