An incredibly charming two-bedroom apartment on a lively street in a serene 19th-century building---with an elevator! Views out over a charming old Paris vista from the 5th floor. The flat is elegant with oak herringbone floors and 200-year-old floor tiles. The view in the back is out over a beautiful quiet cobble-stoned courtyard. You cannot do better. Central heating, fans throughout in the summer. A floor-through flat with breezes and sunshine.
We've been renting our adorable apartment in Paris for nearly fifteen years. We're experienced owners sensitive to traveler needs. You'll also have a local manager to greet you and to contact in case of any emergencies. We have a specially tailored guidebook in the apartment with all our local tips and recommendations.
Both bedrooms have queen size beds and plenty of light and air. As they're situated at opposite ends of the apartment, there is complete privacy, so the place works well for two couples or families as well as for two friends.
The apartment is beautifully decorated with original period details (most of the furnishings are antiques from the marché aux puces) but we've also updated the place for comfort--there's an elevator, washer and dryer, a modern kitchen with dishwasher, free Internet, everything you need. Everything is high quality (and there's no Ikea).
This is a true Parisian neighborhood that is very central. Located in a food-lover’s paradise, our we're on the same block as some of the most celebrated bakeries, traiteurs, cheese shops, and patisseries in the Marais. You can buy everything from wine to oysters, charcuterie, baguettes, fresh flowers or fresh chevres, and the most prized and perfect chocolates, all right on our street. Also, many wonderful restaurants are within easy walking distance. Plus you'll find galleries and museums galore, from one with Proust's bedroom to one showing the history of Jewish Paris – and, yes, of course, the Picasso Museum too – all within the radius of a few blocks.
Free high-speed internet access and wi-fi plus a flat-screen television with cable channels -- and free phone service back to North America and to land lines throughout Europe.
In the winter, there is plentiful central heat via radiators. In the summer, there are fans and the breezes maximized by the architecture: the floor-through design of the flat lets air move all the way through the apartment. There's really no need for AC in this place.
Outside, our street is the dividing line between the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. The block has wide stone sidewalks, benches, and just a single lane of one-way traffic, making for a classic Parisian pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.
It’s an easy stroll to the Seine, to Notre Dame, the Place des Vosges, the Musée Carnavalet, the Jewish Museum, Arts et Métiers, and much more. In fact, the Cartier Bresson foundation will be moving around the corner in Fall 2018. We are very convenient to the 'Velib' system of shared bikes which you can book online.
Our part of the Marais is one of the most picturesque districts of Paris, just three doors from the Archives Nationales. There’s a rich concentration of museums and historic buildings that have not changed in centuries. At the same time, the area is increasingly alive with shops, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. And yes, there’s plenty of shopping to tempt those interested in Parisian couture.
