(scroll right down the main page in the middle to "Links to more information” this is below the reviews, below the map and under Manager info where our Paris Rental Connections logo is listed).

On the edge of the Marais and just next to rue Montorgueil, this spacious apartment is tucked back into the courtyard of a quiet building on a tranquil street in the 2nd Arrondissement. The flat is overlooking zinc roof-tops and sky. The result of this is a virtually silent space, free from the street noise of surrounding Paris. This 60 square metre flat is organized to have 2 separate sleeping areas, making it a 2 bedroom flat.

Be sure to scroll down the page and see our 360 degree interactive tour. Past location map and just below Manager Info. The interactive tour feels like you are there already!

If you would like to talk to us directly be sure to look up Paris Rental Connections - we are easily found online.

Upon entering, the guest enters into an entry lounge, containing two single beds and a wall of cupboards for storing clothing and luggage. This first room is separated from the double living area by a large sliding door - when open, the spaces are joined to make a large, sunny, loft-like space, and when closed, the entry becomes a quiet separate room for reading or sleeping. We can provide a third single fold out bed here too.

The double living and dining area runs the length of the apartment and is illuminated by a wall of windows on one side. The first lounge area is furnished with a sofabed that is quick to open and has a very thick mattress, two luxurious Napoleon-style armchairs, and TV, DVD, and wireless high-speed internet. The dining area contains an expandable dining table surrounded by comfortable leather dining chairs, and can seat 10 if the desire for hosting a large dinner party takes hold. There is also another seated area with a large leather sofabed making it comfortable to sit in different parts of the apartment to read or chat.

Proceeding through the apartment, the quirky nature of Marais apartments is revealed by a series of doorways and stairs. Many of the apartments in this area are recuperated from several different spaces in very old buildings and thick, crooked walls, myriad steps up and down, and tilting floors are the norm. Back in the main level of the apartment, a step down from the dining area takes you to the kitchen. It is fully equipped with large refrigerator, 4 burner induction range and oven, clothes washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, coffee pot, and more amenities.

The corridor, accessed by a step down from the dining area, leads first to a large bathroom with double sink vanity, toilet, and bathtub, and then to the main bedroom.

The bedroom contains a queen size (160 cm wide) bed and a chest of drawers, and two bedside tables with lamps for those lazy mornings in bed with the papers and a cup of coffee.

LOCATION

The Montorgueil district is centered around rue Montorgueil, a primarily pedestrian street which is a 'rue des commercants' - or shopping street par excellence.

This street is packed with all of the little shops any Parisian (or visitor) could want - greengrocers, butchers, fishmongers, bakeries (including Stohrer, a bakery and patisserie dating from 1730) flower shops, chocolate shops, wine stores, and even a few gelato shops.

The street serves as an artery running from Les Halles park (originally home to the largest central market in Paris but converted in the 1960's to a park and underground shopping mall, complete with cinemas) north to rue Reaumur.

Restaurants and cafes abound, as well as the scores of boutiques in the surrounding streets. The area has in recent years become a haven for young designers and this is evident in the small boutiques scattered throughout, but the larger clothing stores still remain as well, centered around rue Etienne Marcel, which runs toward Place des Victoires, a 5 minute walk away. The Louvre museum can easily be reached on foot.

An often missed treasure just across the street from the apartment is the Passage des Grands Cerfs, one of Paris's many enclosed passages - glass-roofed passageways lined with shops and boutiques. True to the neighbourhood, this passage contains several funky clothing stores, a restaurant, and a few galleries and furniture stores.

Closest metros are Reaumur Sebastopol and Etienne Marcel, line 4 and 3.

Very well located apartment in Paris

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay in this apartment in Paris. Located right near the Montergueil market area, it has everything you need for a nice stay. Well furnished and comfortable. The only cons were very hard water that left the dishes from the dishwasher feeling gritty, and a bathtub that was a bit difficult to get in and out of without fear of slipping.

Environnement Montorgueuil super. Appartement correct mais sans plus. Rapport qualité prix décevant

  • 3 of 5

La localisation de l'appartement est parfaite. Quartier sécuritaire, animé, pittoresque de Paris. À proximité des bus, RER, métro.

L'appartement comme tel est situé au 2 iême étage, sans ascenceur. Les marches sont assez difficiles d'accès. L'immeuble était en travaux alors première impression assez mitigee , nous aurions aimé le savoir avant.

L'Appartement est présenté comme un 2 chambres ce qui n'est pas le cas. Lorsqu'on entre dans l'appartement, il y a effectivement 2 lits simples et la possibilité de fermer un panneau pour avoir une certaine intimité (pas pour le bruit). Ce qui fait que cette chambre est en fait un passage entre l'entrée et le reste de l'appartement. Il y a aussi une autre chambre fermée et isolée celle-là. L'appartement est correct mais sans plus. Bonne grandeur, bien équipé (lingerie, cuisine). Les appareils (lave-vaisselle, lave-linge) fonctionnement bien. La propreté laissait un peu à désirer, j'ai re-lavé systématiquement la vaisselle avant que nous ne l'utilisions. La salle de bain laisse à désirer, c'est fonctionnel mais vieillot. Tout cela pour dire que c'était ok mais que la relation qualité-prix était très surévaluée. Au prix demande par nuit, nous nous attentions à beaucoup plus.

Superb location

  • 4 of 5

A lot of living space, and as a long flat, easy enough for multiple people to have their own space. A bit of a bottleneck in the mornings with one (big) bathroom, if privacy is desired. Apartment decor is not special, but it feels authentic. Kitchen and dining room suitable for meals.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was superb for the needs of our family of four with two adult children. It's centrally located in a lively neighborhood near metro stops, restaurants and shopping. My criteria for choosing a property was location, CLEANLINESS, comfortable beds/linens, spacious updated bathroom and ample living space with decent furniture. This property met all those needs and more with extra amenities...lots of fluffy towels, hairdryers, toiletries, shopping carts, detergent, soaps, kitchen linens, paper products etc...you won't lack for anything. The property is in an interior courtyard and away from street noise. The kitchen is small. We only used it for breakfast, snacks and drinks, but it was equipped with all the major cooking utenils. I personally would not want to do any major cooking in it, but a kitchen was not a priority for us. A terrific reasonable priced restaurant we recommend is Les Philosophes also listed in the property handbook provided.

Elodie and her staff were very responsive in booking the property and excellent instructions are provided for coordinating your arrival. This was our first time booking abroad with homeaway and we hit the jackpot!!!

Nice comfortable renovated apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and found the apartment comfortable with amenities we were looking for. The unit is close to a subway station, and right above the ground floor on a quiet street. There is a market area a block away which is a plus. The unit has many windows that can be opened and we found it spacious for us. We very much enjoyed our stay there.

Review of Rue de Greneta- great location & apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is ideally located apartment on a quiet street. We were able to walk everywhere in Paris from here. Great restaurants and food shops nearby. The apartment is clean and comfortably slept the 5 of us (2 adults; three kids under 12). Paul was very helpful in showing us how everything worked. We choose to eat out a lot as we were only there for 4 days so didn't really use the kitchen but it looked well equipped. Would recommend this place to friends and we would use it again.
