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.

A designers jem in the heart of the Marais

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great just described with all the appointments needed for a stay in the city. We were provided with the perfect amount of dinnerware to make meals for ourselves when we felt like having a home cooked meal. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, tasty madelines and a sparkly clean apartment. The glass wall provided a nice sound barrier from the two rooms. Michael was so nice and provided us with recommendations on places to dine and shop along with easy way to communicate with him. He even arranged for a taxi to pick us up the day of our departure which just made our travels so much smoother. We loved the area and would return to the Marais and rent this unit next time. There are so many great shops and restaurants near by, a must go to is Les Philosophes (try the onion soup) and L'as Du Fallafel and make sure to get extra aubergine! You are right near the Place de Voges along with the Picasso museum which were some highlights of our trip. The apartment is convenient to bus and metro lines which made getting around a breeze. Thank you Michael for a wonderful stay, we will be back for sure!

True Paris

  • 5 of 5

Truly lovely. Can't believe I'd say this while visiting Paris, but we truly wish we had more time, so we could have stayed in the apartment more to enjoy it. We loved the silence of the space after being out in the sounds of the city. Cozy, comfortable, with the greatest detailed amenities provided and a perfect location for us. Our host, Michael went above and beyond to accommodate our traveling needs. Enough said, it was exactly what we needed.

Great location, spacious and clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Michael's apartment was perfect. Michael is a fantastic host with great communication beforehand and during our stay to make sure everything ran smoothly. Michael has gone out of his way to make sure every need is catered for.

The apartment is in a great location with a short walk to a metro station, restaurant, supermarkets and shopping. Offers great value for money!

Small, but AWESOME Location

  • 4 of 5

Being in the heart of the Maris, the location of this apartment is wonderful. The shower is also wonderful. You have to be prepared for a very small apartment that is transformed (unnecessarily) by a glass wall into a 2 room unit with a living room and a bedroom. The apartment lacks a dining area so, if you eat in the unit, you'll sit on the couch and eat on your lap. It is also lacking adequate dishes. That said, the bed is decent and, since you'll likely eat out most of the time this is a good choice. All-in-all, if small (and IT IS) is OK then you'd be hard pressed to get a better location.

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.
