Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This 17th century apartment has all the features of the perfect Paris getaway – massive original oak beams, red tile 'tomette' floors dotted with Persian carpets, antique French furnishings and comfortable beds wrapped in luxurious high thread count linens. In the living room, there is a beautiful 19th century tapestry on the wall of the lady and unicorn. The kitchen has new rich brown polished granite counter tops.

We have just completed a brand new bathroom renovation, all new paint job and all new energy efficient silent heating system! It's GLEAMING!

The large living room opens into the renovated kitchen and dining area, easily seating eight guests around a large antique dining room table.

The sofa opens into a queen sized bed. There are two bedrooms and two baths.

--The larger bedroom, with a queen bed, is off the living room and offers an en-suite bathroom with full size tub/shower, washer and dryer.

--The second smaller bedroom is a SEPARATE APARTMENT, just adjacent to the main apartment, on the same landing, and there are no other apartments on this floor. It is ideal for the guest who wants full privacy (OLDER CHILDREN ONLY - OVER 16, visitors, etc). In this bedroom, there is a double bed (140cm) , two skylights and a full bathroom, and its own WIFI and air conditioning central system.

Note: this is a small bedroom, so not ideal for two large adults, perfect for one adult or two teenagers/younger children.

The neighborhood? Wonderful! Easy walk to Ile St Louis, Bastille, Places Des Vosges and Notre Dame. Nearest Metros are Bastille, Sully Morland and Saint Paul.

The services we offer? Wonderful!

--FULL CONCIERGE services are included at no additional charge. Our staff meets you AT the apartment when you arrive, and your personal concierge is available 24/7 should you have any questions.

--We also can arrange for our PRIVATE CHAUFFEUR to pick you up at the airport (90E/one way/6 guests) - he meets you right at customs, and then delivers you to the apartment as he coordinates the arrival of your concierge at the same time.

Why do I love this apartment?

-- It’s authentic, beautiful, bright, and very very quiet.

-- It's luxuriously furnished, really lovely.

-- It's in a great neighborhood, surrounded by museums, monuments, restaurants, unusual shops and the even more important BAKERIES!

-- It has a great layout - the second private bedroom and bath are perfect for the guests or kids or in-laws that need their own space, yet are still under your wing.

Who is the perfect guest for this apartment?

-- A couple looking for a romantic week in the heart of Paris;

-- A family (up to 6) who wants a cost effective alternative to a hotel;

-- A family with OLDER children who would love to have their own space, leaving the larger apartment and bedroom to the parents.

-- A party of three where the third person is not sharing the big bed with the other two... (ok, I'll stop here....)

The smile tells it all. I love doing this. And, if we are careful, and always place the right guest in the right apartment, then 99% of the time our guests are extraordinarily happy, and that makes me happy.

What makes this apartment unique

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE DEFINITELY RESERVING: THE FLOOR PLAN IS UNIQUE AS FOLLOWS:

THE SECOND BEDROOM IS ACTUALLY A SECOND APARTMENT - ON THE SAME FLOOR, ADJACENT TO THE MAIN APARTMENT, AND THERE'S NO ONE ELSE ON THE FLOOR.

IT IS SMALL (ABOUT 10M2): WITH A DOUBLE BED, (140CM), AND FULL BATH, HEAT/AIR, WIFI AND TWO SKYLIGHTS. IT HAS ITS OWN LOCKING DOOR. IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR A CHILD UNDER 15. IT IS BEST FOR GRANDMA, AU PAIR, OLDER TEENAGER, PRIVATE CHEF, OR FELLOW TRAVELING THIRD PARTY!! THANKS.

Perfect location, charming apartment and great owner communication!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming apartment for a few days on our recent trip to Europe. Before our trip, Jim was in full communication and told us all we needed to know before our arrival (including the best parking lots!). His concierges Marc and Mathias were welcoming and informative. When we mentioned one of our travelers was a vegan, Mathias immediately emailed vegan friendly restaurants he recommended. We were also given a list of grocery stores, cheese shops, bistros, etc....all within easy distance of the apartment.

The apartment itself was perfect. Complete with washer/dryer, laundry detergent, soap and plenty of towels! I’m always surprised at just how many apts don’t offer the basics. The “other room” included it’s own bathroom and was perfect as our blended family included two couples and a teenager.

The location allows you to go where you want easily. We are walkers and walked everywhere. Don’t feel like walking? Easy bus and train access.

I am a big “travel like a local” believer and this apartment made it not only possible, but immensely enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again.

An absolutely amazing experience. The best customer service I have had.

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as explained by the owner. The owner actually called me within 10 minutes of the initial booking and walk me through the whole experience. When I got to the apartment the gentleman, Mark, went through everything and find detail. Absolutely fantastic. I would definitely recommend to anyone that is going to Paris. The location, the service, the facility and the experience were amazing.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our stay was seamless with the assistance of Marc the concierge. The apartment is beautiful and exactly as pictured with every amenity you need. My 22 year old son stayed in the separate second bedroom and it worked out perfectly. Wonderful restaurants near the apartment both towards the Seine and the Bastille. The Fun and Yummy food tour with Marc we did on our last day before heading to the airport was the perfect way to end out trip. Thank you to Marc for all his help in making this such a memorable trip!

Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay. This property is perfectly located with lots of nice shops and very good restaurants all within walking distance. The smaller bedroom was perfect for our teenage daughter. Jim and his team are excellent to work with. My one and only complaint would be the tub/shower can be a little tricky getting in and out of. We would definitely recommend this as we have stayed at other properties in Paris that were not this well kept.

This place was perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect Paris experience for our family. It is extremely well equipped with all we needed and beautifully furnished. The 2 bedrooms are very comfortable with lovely linens, and the

bathrooms are modern and spacious. The bedroom that is separate from the apartment, but on the same floor, is adorable and very comfortable for 2 people. We did not find it a bit small, even for two tall people.

La Marais is a very interesting area to stay in, and we loved coming back to it after braving the more crowded areas of Paris. There are so many small restaurants to try! The boulangerie on the corner provided breakfast croissants every morning, and for dinner we tried several of Mathias’ and Marc’s recommendations. They were incredible! Our last evening we ate at Le Temps des Cerises on the corner, and it was fabulous!

We will definitely stay here for our next trip to Paris!

20 rue de la cerisaie

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our four days in this apartment. The main apartment was charming and well equipped for our four adult guests. The additional second bedroom was fine for a couple. Our concierge, Marc was exceptional -- he arranged for a driver to meet us, as we kept our car outside the city. His choice of a Louvre guide worked well. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the City of Lights.
