Overview

About the property

The perfect balance of historic beauty, modern convenience in an ideal location.

Located in the heart of the beautiful and fashionable Marais (4th arrondissement) in the center of Paris, this elegantly renovated apartment possesses the perfect balance of historic beauty, modern conveniences (elevator, central air-conditioning, Wifi, washer & dryer), and ideal location. Wonderful 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 penthouse is a luxurious and incredibly comfortable haven in the heart of one of the most best-preserved and beautiful neighborhoods.

Location: As a resident of a centuries-old building on a beautiful winding granite cobbled street, which even by Parisian standards is considered uniquely beautiful and charming, you will have museums, art galleries, incredible food and the latest in fashion at your doorstep. Located on the top floor (6th floor) with an elevator to the 5th floor and then one easy flight of stairs, this apartment receives direct sunlight year-round. It is also just steps away from the beautiful Place des Vosges, numerous museums, parks and the river for romantic walks along the Seine. Foodies will fall in love with the array of eateries surrounding the apartment and 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. 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 white pressed linens on a 160cm x 200cm bed (between a US queen and king size bed) that ensures very restful nights. The black-out shutters 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.

Eating: A white stone countertop and white glass cabinets conceal a full 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, cooktop, 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.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is absolutely the perfect apartment. We spent our last weekend in Paris here after traveling in France for two weeks. Michael is a pro, he was flexible, helpful and thoughtful and went out of his way to make our visit seamless. The location couldn't have been better - a beautiful neighborhood, historic street, great shopping and restaurants at your (literal) doorstep. The apartment has been meticulously maintained, the bed is extraordinarily comfortable, the linens were high quality, and he even provided a nice bottle of wine for our arrival. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay here, especially after wading through what felt like 1,000's of apartments. We've stayed in other Paris apartments and none compare to the beauty or level of service that Michael provided. You can't go wrong. Thank you for everything!

Beautiful Jewel of an apartment in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

Spotless, cozy little gem in the middle of Paris most beautiful area. Minutes away from museums, great food and gardens. The host, Michael left a beautiful bottle of wine for our welcome and ensured that we had transport back to the airport. The air conditioning and the lift was very welcome after a day of sightseeing and a night of dining. Thank you Michael, it was a wonderful week made even more special by your accommodations.

Perfect place, perfect location, perfect host.

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking for a place to stay in Paris, you have just found the perfect place.

This is s small apartment in the heart of Paris. Do not be fooled by the size. If you are a couple look for a cozy place to stay in the city, this is the perfect place. It has everything you need, Elevator, air-conditioning, kitchen, and even a washer dryer. Micheal, the host, has thought of everything.

The location is also amazing, there are dozens of great shops within walking distance, and the metro is also within walking distance to take you everywhere you need to go. We spent a week in Paris, and went everywhere and our location was perfect for doing everything.

The host is great. Michael makes himself available for you and provides you a ton of tools and information to make sure you have a great time.

DON'T OVER THINK THIS, say here!

This apartment is wonderful, and Michael is a gracious host.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is small, but so carefully designed by the architect and host, Michael Hermann, the we had all the space we needed. It is beautiful, full of light, and off a courtyard in a wonderful location. We are close to wonderful restaurants, walking distance to many places we want to visit, and not constantly surrounded by tourists. C'est magnifique.

Perfect location for true Parisian experience!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located in the most wonderful arrondissement (the Marais) that is lovely to tool around in and explore. Easy 5 minute walk from the nearest Metro (St. Paul), it is perfectly situated to getting out and about and hitting the highlights of Paris or just whiling away one's time in the neighborhood itself. You are only 10 minutes from the Seine /Ile-de-St-Louis/Notre Dame area and beautiful walks along the quai--easy again to either jump on a Metro or leisurely walk to museums. Although you will not want for fabulous eating in the Marais itself, you are located well within striking distance of many other famous establishments, and Michael is kind enough to include a wide range of lovely recommendations for both the neighborhood and the surrounding area in the apartment manual he leaves for you .

This was our first time staying on the Right Bank and we had a fabulous time getting to know the Marais and happily grazing at (seemingly) all the neighborhood eateries. You truly gain a wonderful flavor of the area, with friendly and helpful people all over. We felt extremely safe and able to use both my 7 years of French with aplomb or my husband's rudimentary grasp of the language with ease. Michael was a wonderful host--although unable to meet us personally, he arranged to have his colleague Suzanne meet us and walk us through the apartment. The welcome bottle of wine was lovely, and we were able to relax immediately in such a clean and thoughtfully arranged apartment. Access to wi-fi and satellite TV was excellent and easy to use, and the bed and shower were both extremely comfortable and pampering. Michael remained in contact with us during our stay and also arranged to have a taxi meet us to take us to the airport on our last morning. Really, this place was great--thoroughly enjoyed the location and the character of the area and it made our stay in Paris just divine. Thank you!
