Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Saint Gervais - Beautiful & Elegant Penthouse

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.

We Love to Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed with Michael twice and we really enjoy the fantastic finishes and details of his apartments. These apartments are very aesthetically pleasing from the exposed beams to the great light/lighting to the antique pieces, etc...We are impressed at how well the spaces are planned and feel and how the apartments provide all of the amenities necessary for a long stay (we stayed for a week this time and were always glad to come home from a long day of touring to such a nice place). The location cannot be beat in our opinion and we love the walks to great museums, shopping and restaurants.

Wonderful Apartment and host!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Michael's apartment. The apartment was incredibly clean and comfortable. Michael arranged for his friend to meet us to check us in and she was incredibly nice and explained everything to us to make our stay more enjoyable. Every detail of the apartment, down to the fine linens, is well thought out and it truly made for a very enjoyable time for us. The neighborhood was very charming and the building quiet. Michael has an informative book in the apartment that explains everything you need to know about the neighborhood and includes some restaurant recommendations which were great. I highly recommend the apartment.

Perfect cosy studio

  • 5 of 5

After many visits to Paris this is the first place we would like to go back to. The best possible use is made of the space - everything is light and airy - the kitchenette and bathroom are well equipped. The excellent bottle of wine on arrival and the pods for the espresso machine are nice touches, and the orchid adds an extra touch of class. It is nicely furnished and, situated overlooking the courtyard, is very quiet. The wifi and TV reception are both excellent. Michael, the owner, handled all aspects of the reservation promptly and helpfully. The information booklet, including nearby restaurants, was most helpful, as were the cards detailing Paris walks. Really, no reservations.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous apartment is in a wonderful historic location in Paris, and close to the transit system which makes your sightseeing easier. Notre Dam is also just a small walk away. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. Transactions and communication was stress free. You'll have everything you need and more! This was truly the perfect place for my husband and I to stay in during the last few days of our two week trip, easily the best and most memorable.

Thank you, Michael!

Perfectly located apartment in the heart of the Marais

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we used VRBO however, it was an excellent experience. This apartment is truly central to everything in the Marais as well as great local bistros and easy Métro connections. The flat was very clean and was quiet at night. It was a nice touch to have breakfast cakes and Nespresso coffee and even a bottle of wine waiting for us. The Internet provided is lightning fast, both for uploads and downloads. We were met in a timely fashion by a knowledgable and friendly person. We would absolutely recommend this super flat, without hesitation.

A charming penthouse apartment in the heart of the Marais

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was charming. We called it the dollhouse because of size but do not let this deter you! Michael our host did the most creative use of space creating a very livable space. Each part of the room ( in essence it was a studio with a lovely separate small bathroom) was decorated to give the feeling of separate spaces. A soundproof glass wall with doors enabled a resting person to have a lovely feeling of separateness. The kitchen and bathroom were equipped with all upscale appliances. Michael himself was a thoughtful host. A delicious bottle of wine and some yummy madelines were waiting for us upon arrival. His host manuel was very helpful and he was readily available if needed. He also graciously delayed our checkout time by an hour and arranged a taxi to take us to an airport hotel. We had a wonderful time in Paris and thoroughly enjoyed the apartment! Merci Michael!
