Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Les Archives - Beaumarais

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located in the Marais, one block from the Place des Vosges and two minutes from Picasso museum, this lovely vacation apartment is sure to become your home-away-from-home in Paris. Set on the second floor of a very quiet and charming 17th century building, it is reached easily by one wide flight of stairs.

The apartment shows the highest standard for quality and comfort. It will charm you with designer furniture and touches of traditional French antiques. Splashes of dramatic color pleasantly energize the décor and the newly refinished wood floors shine. Gracious and thoughtful amenities are included throughout. An airy and sunny 520 square feet of space, beautifully renovated and furnished.

The living room has three large French windows facing a courtyard. There is a Ligne Roset sofa which easily becomes a comfortable bed for two. Two easy chairs and an ottoman accent the room's color scheme and modern design. Beautiful, sleek lamps give plenty of light for reading and other activities. Cable TV, stereo and CD player are conveniently located for use in the room. Wireless internet throughout.

The bedroom also has a large French window which faces the courtyard. The Ligne Roset bed is queen-sized with a padded headboard (perfect for reading in bed) and a firm mattress. Linens are 100% cotton and the pillows and comforter are extremely comfortable. The walk-in closet provides plenty of storage space.

The kitchen is large and has an antique table with matching chairs. New countertops, cabinets, ceramic sink and sage green floor tiles create a wonderful environment for cooking and eating. Fully equipped, the kitchen includes a dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker.

The bathroom has a glassed-in shower and bathtub. A towel warmer, hairdryer and plenty of space for your things add convenience to this room.

This wonderful apartment is ideally located on rue Saint Gilles, one block from Place des Vosges in the heart of The Marais, this is the Paris so often see idealized in films and on postcards. The Place des Vosges, the oldest and one of the most beautiful squares in Paris, is a favorite of Parisians and tourists alike - a place to relax, stroll and take in the beauty of the city.

The Marais and nearby Place de la Bastille is home to some of the most important figures and events in Parisian history. Victor Hugo made his home at number 6 Place des Vosges and Balzac and Dumas resided in le Marais. The Picasso Museum, nearby at the Hotel Sale, is home to the world’s most significant collection of his work. The Musée Carnavalet on rue de Sévigné is one of the most interesting of Paris museums. It illustrates the history and development of Paris up to the present.

The bustling nightlife of the Marais is vibrant with its restaurants, club scene, concerts, cafés, and jazz bars. Less than a 10-minute walk will take you to the year-round program of opera and ballet at The Opera Bastille.

You can easily walk to Centre Georges Pompidou, Le Louvre, Forum des Halles, Notre-Dame, and many other Parisian landmarks.

Every Thursday and Saturday morning, there is the large outdoor market on Boulevard Richard Lenoir and a well-stocked, small supermarket, G20, has opened on rue Saint Gilles. Within the neighborhood are many wonderful specialty food shops and bakeries.

Métro Lines: About one block from Métro: Chemin Vert (line 8). About 5 minute walk to Métro: Bastille (lines 1/8/5) or Métro: St Paul (line 1).

We have agents in Paris available to solve any emergencies should they arise.

About Joelle Dussuyer

I was born in France, Lyon and I have lived in San Francisco now for 36 years. David and I just got married in July. It has been a pleasure hosting so many nice guests through out the last many years. We are looking forward to have you too! :)

Joelle Dussuyer purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Joelle Dussuyer chose 4th Pompidou Centre/Le Marais/Notre Dame

It is simply the most hip area of Paris, yet full of history, good restaurants and attractive shops. It's centrally located, walking distance to many of Paris' greatest museums and landmarks, and easily accessible by metro. Simply the best area in town.

What makes this apartment unique

Designed for American tourists by a French native who has lived in the States for 36 years. I had you in mind. The apartment is very quiet, very comfortable, clean and beautiful. The tub has a regular shower in it (something that you don't always get in Paris). The bed is so comfortable that I bought one for my own place in San Francisco. I've had several renters tell me that it is the best bed they have ever slept in. Moon, my Paris contact is the best!

Perfect Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most wonderful 8 days in Paris thanks to this comfortable, well furnished apt. in the most interesting part of Paris. We loved the Marais and would stay here again in a minute. We both commented on how well we slept due in part to the comfort of the bed and the quiet of the neighborhood. Great natural market across the street and

some of the best meals just blocks away. Convenient to all museums, especially the Picasso which we loved. Thank you Joelle for all your advice and we hope to revisit Paris and will definitely choose this apt. for our next stay.

Hotel de ville, Paris

  • 5 of 5

The appartment in Paris was well located in the Marais, light, airy with a romantic view over rooftops. It was as lovely in reality as it was in the pictures. Comfortable bed and well stocked kitchen. We didn't have any trouble with the locks.

A nice place from which to explore Paris.

Charming, well situated, apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect as a base for our first trip to Paris. Located in the Marais, we could walk to Notre Dame and St. Chapelle. The metro stop was close. We had cafe and croissants each morning at a fabulous bakery down the street. Many excellent cafes near by. The Marais itself was fascinating to walk around- the Picasso Museum a few blocks away. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, nice bathroom- just perfect for a couple. Clean and comfortable, with a Parisian vibe.

A perfect home away from home in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We have been here twice now and love everything about this apartment. It is in a great neighborhood convenient to three Metro stops and for walking. The restaurants and cafes nearby are very good and there are two markets right across the street. Joelle provides complete and helpful information about the apartment and nearby neighborhood. The apartment is well maintained and clean with plenty of space to store your stuff. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Paris.

Paris Pied-a-Terre

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing amiss in this light-filled apartment. The bed was comfy and the appointments perfect. We appreciated the little touches: soap, coffee, welcoming message. The owner's binder was filled with useful hints. The restaurants in the area were delightful, grocery shopping right out the door and metro stations nearby for easy access. All in all we had a wonderful visit and Le Marais is an interesting and lovely part of the city. We can recommend the apartment without hesitation.
