Overview

About the property

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 Paris

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. Florence and Sol, my Paris contacts are the best!

Nice apartment in a nice location!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is like in the pictures. It is maintained very well. It fit our family of four very comfortably. The location is nice and safe. General store right across the street, metro few minutes away, good boulangerie's nearby for fresh croissant in the morning. Joelle sent very useful information ahead of time. The local contact Florence is easy to reach, speaks English, and very helpful.

Apartment does not have an AC but has fans in each room, which were adequate to maintain comfortable temperature. The shower is good, but it could use a new shower head.

Overall we would gladly stay here again.

Great location and beautiful part of Paris

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first visit to Paris. I had no idea where to stay, how to navigate the city and felt intimated about planning this trip. I'm so thankful we found this property to stay in. It's in a beautiful part of Paris with cafe's, museums, and lovely narrow streets to explore. We walked to Notre Dame, the Louvre and even walked from the Eiffel Tower back to the apartment. Joelle takes care of all the details. She provided easy to follow info on how to get to the apartment from the airport by taxi, train, or shuttle. Everything was easier then I anticipated. The apartment was bright, clean and perfect for a Parisian experience. The bed's were very comfortable and it was enough room for my husband and me and our two daughters. We had the best experience and I would stay here again if we return to Paris.

Outstanding apartment in great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just as lovely as shown in the photos. It is bright, sunny, fresh and clean, with beautiful hardwood floors, large windows, a very nice kitchen, and a great shower. Joelle and her local contact Florence could not have been nicer. They were very responsive, easy to work with, accommodating, and clearly invested in seeing that we had an enjoyable experience. Anyone thinking of staying in the Le Marais neighborhood should make this their first choice apartment!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location. Clean, perfectly appointed for cooking and relaxing. Pleasant and comfortable furnishings. Communications with Joelle and her assistant, Sol, were clear and seamless, and very accommodating. We felt very safe in the surroundings, close to nearby grocery stores and restaurants and within walking distance of many sights of the city. We absolutely loved our time there, and highly recommend it!
