Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Saint Gervais

Apartment, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Location: The Marais, oldest and most colorful neighborhood in Paris. This apartment has an unobstructed view of the Seine and the Isle Saint Louis, and is just a block from Metro Line 1, providing easy access to most of the city's historic monuments, from the Bastille Opera to the Louvre to the Champs Elysees. It was built just inside the medieval city walls, the best-preserved remnant still visible down the block.

Description: On the fourth floor, with elevator, of a late nineteenth century building, this centrally air-conditioned (!) 31 square meter (336 square feet) apartment is bathed in light from three large south-facing windows. Antique oak floors have been lovingly restored, and the kitchen and bath are finished with elegant porcelain tiles which echo the pale hues of a 17th century Parisian limestone wall, a portion of which is exposed in a decorative niche. There is more than adequate storage for luggage and clothing making the apartment comfortable and practical for a stay of any duration. Decoration and furnishings include raw silk drapes with sheers, comfortable sofa-bed to accommodate a third person, dining table and chairs with seating for four, and a writing desk with hi-speed computer connection. Built-in niches at the head of the bed are equipped with switches for reading lamps and room lighting, and a digital alarm clock. Other amenities include a washer/dryer, dishwasher and flat screen TV with CNN, BBC and other premium channels.

We offer FULL CONCIERGE services - we will meet you at arrival to your apartment, and we are available 24/7 during your stay for questions or advice. We also offer CHAUFFEUR service to and from the airport (90E/one way/2 guests) - direct from customs with a sign with your name on it, to the apartment, luggage in hand!

Who is perfect for this apartment? Any single traveler or couple who value the tangible remnants of Paris’s long, rich history and the creature comforts of a fully renovated, highly functional, air conditioned space.

Why do I love this apartment? It has the rare combination of a beautiful view and quiet calm in a less busy corner of the Marais, while being only a stone’s throw from a major Metro line. Wonderful restaurants and shops are steps away, and when you are home, the apartment envelops you in comfort and that indescribable Parisian sunlight.

The Perfect Pied-a-Terre in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week in this wonderful studio apartment and cannot wait to go back. It will likely become our home-away-from-home in Paris. First of all, the apartment is not only exactly as described so that there are no surprises and everything is exactly as it should be per the description, but it's actually even better than that. To say that this apartment is quiet is an understatement. We never heard any street noise even though the windows face the street -- it's a small and ultra quiet street. To have this kind of quiet in Paris is amazing. The bed, as others have said, is extremely comfortable. Everything in the studio is very well thought out, from the cubbies next to each side of the bed with lamps, to the excellent lighting throughout the apartment, to the set up of the kitchen, to the closet and storage space. The big windows provide a lot of light while the excellent drapes keep the apartment dark when you want to sleep. The apartment is air conditioned -- a rarity in Paris and something we definitely needed as Paris experienced a heat wave while we were there. It is also a fantastic asset to have a concierge assigned to you for the duration of your stay. It was reassuring to know that we could contact our concierge for anything we needed. The manager of this apartment is very responsive, available, enthusiastic, warm, and helpful. He even texted me from his vacation. The location of this apartment simply cannot be beat. It is utter perfection to be two blocks from the Seine, right across from the Ile St. Louis. This means you can walk to Notre Dame, throughout the Marais, across both Ile de la Cité and Ile St Louis as well as get to the Left Bank within minutes. Furthermore, the building itself has two entrances, so all you have to do is exit the far side and you are on one of the best streets in the Marais for everything you need: bakery, fresh produce, chocolate, wine, prepared foods, supermarket. And you are right at one of the most convenient metro stops: St. Paul. At the base of the building there is even a lovely restaurant with delicious food. We loved staying here and recommend it to you most highly.

Great studio for a first time trip to Paris

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect studio for 2 in a great central location in Paris. It was close to the Metro line, groceries, wine, bakeries, restaurants and local attractions. Very convenient! And beautiful! The bed was very comfortable which is so important when traveling. Our car service from the airport was super as was our concierge person who greeted us on the first day. Simply the best! Can't wait to return to our "home" in Paris.

Central and quiet--lovely studio in Paris

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful studio in Paris! It is well located near many of the major tourist sites but amazingly SO quiet--we couldn't believe we were in this bustling city! It is well situated to transportation via Metro or buses as well. Importantly for spoiled Americans, it had an elevator (which was essential for my mother) and air conditioning (which we needed!) The concierge service was very helpful as was the car service to and from the airport! The studio itself was good for 2 people and amenities such as frig, microwave and washer much appreciated. We will definately be back and may even try some of the other properties in their collection.

Perfect location, Fantastic Studio for 2.

  • 5 of 5

I am a fellow VRBO owner and have to say the quality, professionalism and quality of this unit and this team are FANTASTIC! If your going to Paris for a weekend or week this is a great Studio for 2, it has everything you need and the location is one of the Best in all of Paris! The building is right across from the Metro 1 line at St. Paul so you have all of Paris at your door, and easy walk to the Sein, and the many tourist sites on Paris. And great cafe, groceries and local stores right at the base of the building.

The bed was VERY comfortable!, the unit has everything you need SO MUCH BETTER than a hotel!

I HIGHLY recommend taking advantage of the car service to and from the airport, better pricing and NO hassles!

Excellent place to stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great!!. The place was light and airy and very close to everything. It was nice to stay in 'the middle' of things but be on a quite street. The bed was comfortable and the shower was big enough. We walked all over the city from this apartment. The next time we are in Paris we will stay there again.

Bright, Cozy, Central and Private Paris Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this tasteful, well-designed apartment in the wonderful Marais neighborhood of Paris. Everyone associated with our rental, from Jim Braude, to Mathias, to the drivers to and from the airport (so nicely arranged for us by Mathias) were just wonderful. There is no better team to make your stay in Paris all that it should be! And, everything Paris has to offer is at your fingertips from this lovely apartment -- by foot, bus or metro. Thanks for thinking of everything to make for a lovely, memorable stay for us!
