Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms with queen size beds 2 Baths With Private Terrace, Prestige Location

This beautiful, spacious high-end apartment has the ambiance of art déco Paris with the best of comfort and conveniences. A private terrace and a view of gardens from the bedrooms enhance the apartment’s tasteful decor and make it an ideal base for your Paris holiday.

On the apartment’s flowered terrace, a rarity in Paris, guests enjoy alfresco dining, a sunny breakfast, or a relaxing cocktail after a day of exploring and shopping in town. Even more unusual in the city center: the two bedrooms overlook a quiet garden ensuring a silent, peaceful night.

Here you are only steps away from the celebrated Place des Vosges, the Picasso and the Carnavalet museums as well the city’s latest mecca for fashionable shopping: the chic boutiques of the Marais. A 15 to 20 minute walk brings you to the Seine, Ile Saint Louis and Notre Dame.

Although the Marais is now the trendiest area of Paris, it keeps its historic character with numerous restaurants, sidewalk cafés, art galleries and everyday shopping. The Marais is Paris at its most parisian, where no one feels a stranger.

In fact, from here, a walk in any direction reveals the city’s enduring charm. You are five minutes away from the metro stop, Chemin Vert, and excellent bus service to the whole of Paris. A short stroll through the Place des Vosges brings you to metro St. Paul with a direct line to the Louvre, Concorde, and the Champs Elysées.

In a neighbourhood bustling with life the 100 square meter apartment is on a quiet street in a modern building protected by access and elevator codes plus a full time guardian.

The unanimous 5-star reviews our guests have posted make us confident your stay here in Paris will be equally memorable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We had a splendid week staying in this apartment which we were lucky enough to hear about via a friend. It was in a wonderful position, very spacious, and we certainly enjoyed the terrace at every moment we could. Having a terrace is not a common finding in Paris and it was lovely to be able to take breakfast outside and enjoy the garden. We would highly recommend this apartment to those looking for a very central position, comfortable spacious apartment, with such a lovely terasse!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen and dining room allowed us to take advantage of local market options. The washer and dryer made it easy for the rest of our time in France. The area was great for activities, cafes, etc. and subway stops were very convenient for going further than we wanted to walk.

Paradise in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure I can fit all the wonderful aspects of our stay at 20 Rue Saint Gilles. We stayed the week of April 8th through April 15th, 2017. I don't think we could have found a better location. Close to Metro and shopping. Close to everything! No. 8 train at the Metro station one block away took us everywhere! The area was surprisingly quiet. Barbara met us at the apartment and was full of information to make our stay pleasurable. She provided maps and books, along with a notebook of suggestions and answers to any questions we may have while in Paris. She explained how everything worked in the apartment and made sure we were comfortable. She was always a phone call away if we had questions or problems. The kitchen was stocked and had all the necessary cooking utensils along with oils and spices. Barbara had a a bottle of Champagne waiting for us when we arrived. Loved her coffee maker so much, we bought one when we arrived back home. Barbara has an eye for decorating and you can see all over the apartment. The apartment is very inviting and doesn't feel like a rental, it is beautiful. The Patio! What can I say! This was a requirement when we were searching for a rental. This is where we spent out nights after a long day exploring. We ate and enjoyed wine till it was late. The plantings on the patio make you feel like you are in the suburbs, not the middle of Paris. The patio was the icing on the cake. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone who asks. We hope to return to 20 Rue Saint Gilles on our next trip to Paris. Thank you Barbara for making our experience wonderful! Dawn & Steve Haigler, Karen & John Robinson

A Perfect Paris Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin. The apartment is utterly charming, tastefully appointed, highly functional and well located. We stayed nine days and were sad to leave. Two spacious bedrooms (with superb views of a park like area behind), well equipped kitchen, comfortable living/dining room to gather, in which to unwind and plan your stay. But you will want to be out on the terrace when possible! Sitting around the table there in the afternoon with a bottle of wine, crisp baguette and some cheese and fruit reviewing our days experiences was a daily ritual not to be missed.

The neighborhood is cozy and quite convenient. Two small grocery stores are steps from the street entrance. A short block up the street is Artisan Boulangerie, great bread, and breakfast pastry. (One of us made the trip each morning). Picasso and Carnavalet museums are a few blocks as is the Place Des Vosges. Some very good restaurants are close as well. Cafe Marche' and Chez Janou were two we enjoyed.

Two metro stops close by are Chemin Vert and Saint Paul. Easy to find.

Owners were warm, welcoming and helpful. Barbara answered my emails promptly and courteously (even my dumb questions).

This is a terrific place to stay when you visit Paris!

Stylish Oasis in the Heart of Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

A large, character filled apartment with a charming terrace. Every need is catered for from a perfectly equipt kitchen, comfortable beds with quality linen to great property instructions and guide books galore. Spotlessly clean, good water pressure and plenty of comfy seating. Security is great and the streetscape delightful. A great place to stay to really feel like a local. "Thank You" Barbara for making our stay faultless.

Exceptional apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many beautiful apartments in Paris over the years but this one stands out as the very best.

The apartment is even better in reality than in the photos.

The greeting by the owner herself is excellent. This apartment has everything you need,and more, for a most comfortable stay.

It is an entirely peaceful oasis in the heart of Paris. The garden patio is an added bonus and makes the apartment feel even bigger than it is.

The leafy green views out to quiet area from both bedrooms means you can happily and safely sleep with your windows open.

There is a good supermarket and also a health food shop within a minutes walk from the apartment.

We would love to stay here every time we return to Paris.

We were a party of 3 adults and we all agree.

Let Petit Italien and Le Petit Marché became our favorite go to restaurants , both very short walks from apartment. Café des Musées is also very good and very close.

Thank you,Barbara,for your great attention to detail and for the charming way in which you made our stay so memorable.
