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).

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...

About Sophie Berdah

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


Sophie Berdah purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Sophie Berdah chose Enfants-Rouges

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!!!!!

Lovely apartment, very nice and good location

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful apartment for our family of four. We were so happy to have the AC during the heatwave. We also appreciated the washer/dryer as our clothes were soaked in sweat each day! Plenty of food choices nearby. Very loud street noise, especially Saturday night when the neighbors had a party and we couldn't get the windows to latch closed properly. Also if a neighbor smokes out their apartment window, it just comes right into yours. Purple chair in photo is no longer purple, but still very comfortable.

We loved the apartment and we really enjoyed our stay in rue Beranger

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of five (2 adults and 3 teenage children) and we stayed for a long weekend at the Enfants Rouge apartment.

The location of the apartment is fantastic. Close to the republic metro and very close to the lovely cafes and restaurants clustered around the little park (square du temple) as you walk 200m or so south. Importantly rue Beranger is a quiet side road so we were pleased to have a tranquil place to retreat to (yes a few cars do come down it but this is a city). The apartment itself is very well laid out, and comfortable . We found the diagram of the layout provided on the website really helpful - because that is exactly what you get. one teenager slept on the sofa bed which worked out very well. The taxi pick up worked very well. Sophie was a very helpful host at all times. We will come again if we get a chance!

Great apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. The layout was perfect with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms en suite, making it very easy to share with friends or family. It was clean and well-maintained and the manager was very nice and very responsive.

We loved exploring the Marais and the apartment is well located for that with great restaurants, shopping, supermarkets/boulangeries and metro nearby.

Some of the reviews mentioned street noise and we would agree. There are scooter and traffic sounds from the street and noise from the courtyard early in the morning. However, this is only an issue if you leave the windows open.

We had a lovely time here.

Wonderful Escape

  • 4 of 5

This flat was just perfect for myself & 2 friends.

We were able to relax late in the day after touring the city before we headed out on the town again for dinner. It was nice to have a comfortable living room where we could enjoy some snacks & some cocktails.

The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious enough to accommodate our luggage. It was also nice to be able to do a load of laundry if necessary.

The showers had great water pressure, but sometimes the water temperature was hard to regulate.

Additionally, we loved how close the metro was ~ and it had 4 lines we could use! Great for getting around the city.

One small hiccup we had was the floors were being re-done in the hallways & stairs so exiting on our first day in the city was a bit problematic. However, Sophie was very responsive & while we hated to potentially cause any damage we did want to leave when she indicated we could head out on the town.

Another small issue was finding the driver upon arrival ~ so when you book, make sure to clarify where to meet, so you don’t leave the driver waiting and you can easily, quickly, and as part of your 3+ day stay arrive at the flat with the prearranged driver.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this flat. Sophie was easy to work with & truly, even with the hiccups such a marvelous place to call home in Paris.

Chic well appointed apartment in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought my 80+ yr old parents to Paris to celebrate their birthdays.

This apartment was perfect for our stay.The bedrooms were large and having two bathrooms was a bonus.

The kitchen was well stocked with all the amenities we needed and the living space very open and inviting.

The owners were easy to communicate with and replied quickly.

I would highly recommend it and hope to return in the future.
