Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Le Marais - Luxurious & Stylish Apartment

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Located in the heart of the charming and fashionable Marais neighborhood (4th arrondissement) in the center of Paris, this fully renovated and beautifully maintained apartment possesses the perfect balance of historic beauty combined with high-tech modern conveniences: from ultra high-speed fiber optic WIFI Internet, to a state-of-the-art Miele clothes washer and dryer. Ideal for couples, individuals, or a couple of friends who want to spend the perfect holiday in an authentically Parisian apartment without sacrificing any modern comforts, this apartment is a luxurious and incredibly comfortable haven in the heart of one of the most desirable and safe neighborhoods to be in. Located on the 3rd floor (2nd by European standards) with an elevator right to the door of the apartment, this apartment looks onto two beautiful and quiet courtyards making it a particularly peaceful haven. Foodies will fall in love with the array of eateries surrounding the apartment and some of the best restaurants in the city, and those with a taste for fashion will find themselves in the middle of a seemingly unending labyrinth of designer boutiques mixed among high fashion shops and art galleries.

LOCATION: As a resident of a centuries-old building on a beautiful winding granite cobbled street, which even by Parisian high standards is considered a particularly beautiful and charming street, you will have museums, art galleries, incredible food and the latest in fashion at your doorstep. It is also just steps away from the beautiful Place des Vosges, numerous museums, parks and the river quays for romantic walks along the Seine. Additionally, the shops and restaurants in this neighborhood have the unique distinction of being open on Sundays, a rarity in Paris, which gives you the convenience of having everything you need available to you 7 days a week. The neighborhood is so popular on Sundays that the streets are closed off to cars and the area becomes a pedestrian zone for the day.

SLEEPING: Fall asleep on the highest quality mattress and crisp white pressed linens on a 160cm x 200cm bed (larger than a US queen size bed) that ensures very restful nights in the bedroom. Additionally, the sofabed in the living room amazes guests with its comfortable and incredibly firm full-size mattress that is 160cm x 200cm (also larger than a US queen size bed). The glass wall between the living room and bedroom has a black-out curtain that slides across for privacy or to keep the bedroom dark for someone who likes to sleep late while others enjoy the living room. The large windows fill the apartment with natural light year-round, while the black-out shades on all the windows allow you to sleep late or go to bed early if you need to transition to the time change; this is particularly useful in the summer when it can be light out until as late as 11:00pm!

* 2 guests are asked to use 1 bed. If 2 guests would like to use separate beds, please indicate 3 guests when making the booking.

EATING: A white stone counter top and white glass cabinets conceal a full service kitchen that is ideal for picking up food at local markets and at nearby bakeries, cheese, chocolate and wine shops and enjoying in the apartment. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, oven-microwave, cook-top, and built-in aeration hood and lighting. A short walk from one of the biggest open-air food markets in Paris at the nearby Bastille, foodies will find themselves in culinary heaven with both internationally lauded haute-cuisine, as well as up and coming restaurants and bistrots surrounding the apartment.

About Michael

I fell in love with this property because of its incredible location in the heart of the city on a beautifully picturesque street, combined with the historic charm of the surrounding Marais neighborhood (with its famous food and fashion boutiques and museums). Add to that the fact that there is an elevator (only 1 in 200 buildings in this historic area have elevators) and that it has sweeping views over the city, this is truly a special place.

Michael purchased this apartment in 2013

Great locations and modern apartment - everything you need for a Paris home base

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip in many years to Paris and we were not sure of the best neighborhood to stay in Paris. We wanted to hav a Parisian experience, walk ( or easy travel) to all the sights, feel safe, and stay in a modern clean apartment. This apartment, located in the Marias district exceeded our expectations. Michael ( the owner) communicated on several details with us prior to our stay and we were met outside the apartment upon arrival. We were given a walk thru of all the appliances, bathroom, washer/dryer and shown the book where all the instructions on the apartment were kept. We felt completely at home and glad to feel like we were living in Paris - even for only a little bit. We went to some of the restaurant recommendations and found them all a great dining experience.

If we are in Paris again, we will book this apartment!

Marais Gem

  • 5 of 5

We adore Paris and have visited on many occasions. Having discovered Michael's apartment on our last trip in 2015, we did not hesitate to book again this year. We love this beautiful apartment in the Rue des Rosiers. It has very high quality fixtures and everything you need to make your stay enjoyable and 'fuss-free'. It is situated within a short walk to the Bastille and Place des Vosges. There is easy access to the Metro, beautiful boutiques and restaurants. The welcoming bottle of red was most appreciated. Highly recommended.

Wonderful location and updated accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for my wife and I to visit our daughter who is studying in Paris. She was able to stay over and was quite comfortable on pull out bed. Our host met us timely at the apartment, was super nice and helpful.

Every modern convenience in a historic neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This property has been thoughtfully modernized to exceed what could be reasonably expected in a very old building. The neighborhood is bustling and sometimes noisy--but not a sound carries to the flat. There are plugs where you need them and lights for every purpose. The efficiently designed kitchen space boasts a big fridge and, the essential item for us, there was air conditioning during Paris' hot spell. Michael is reliable and responsive and has done everything to make this little gem a great place to stay.

Enjoyable return to Rue des Rosiers

  • 5 of 5

Our visit this year was the second time we've rented this property. It is immaculate, well furnished with all amenities needed for a lovely Paris visit. The Metro stop, St. Paul, is a very short walk from the apt.

The Marais is wonderfully vibrant with nice restaurants nearby, as well as everyone out strolling and enjoying

the weather. The building is a beautiful old apartment house more than a century old.

However the apartment is so modern and chic and very comfortable.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful, fabulous, satisfying

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I rented this apartment for 4 wonderful days. It has everything you could want or need. Michael created a modern comfortable space in the heart of a district ripe for wandering and discovering great little bistros, fun boutiques and history. The apartment is immaculate and all the furnishings are new. The pictures you see on the site are completely accurate. Michael is extremely helpful and readily available with advice and suggestions to enhance your Parisian experience. Our only complaint is that four days flew by much too quickly. I hope we can visit again in the not too distant future and will definitely rent this gem of an apartment again!

Car: not necessary

The apartment is located in the heart of the city, in the Marais, which is the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris (the street the apartment is on was created in the 1100s and is one of the most beautiful in the city, paved in granite, and lined with 19th century street lamps). The surrounding area is full of restaurants, art galleries, and high-fashion shopping. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum (the museum of the history of Paris), the beautiful place des Vosges, Notre Dame Cathedral, and numerous others. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk from the apartment to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern automated Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes right through the heart of the city directly to numerous monuments and sites, such as the Musée du Louvre and Arc de Triomphe.
