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 modern 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, and the Picasso museum 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!

A perfect week in Paris

  • 5 of 5

I must start with the fact that I am picky- it's just the way I am built. I like quiet places to stay, I like clean. I like to feel I am comfortable with everything I need to feel "at home" when away. It's easy to stay in a hotel- maid service, predictable rooms. It's riskier to find a good spot that is someone else's home to enjoy.

From the moment I booked this fantastic apartment all was superb. Barbara's communication and follow up- her attention to details. I traveled with my 2 daughters ( 29 and 25) and when we walked into the apartment we fell in love.

The apartment had plenty of room for the three of us- there were 2 bedrooms with room to spread out ( unlike the last time in Paris in a hotel I couldn't turn around without tripping over items). There were 2 bathrooms- one larger than the other which the girls used and I the small.

The decorations were so perfectly French- I grew to love the antiques, the French framed posters, the beautiful dishes to use, the Art deco style of the place. Every morning I would wake up early , make a coffee, and head to the patio. THE PATIO. It is the most wonderful spot to sit and listen to the city, the beautiful pots with flowers ( perfectly done again and I am an avid gardener). We sat outside and shared meals, wine, coffee, and read and relaxed. HEAVEN.

The peace and quiet for a city apartment was amazing- not a peep of noise laying in bed at night with the windows open. LOVED the windows too- beautiful.

The area is perfect - we walked to the bakery every morning and got croissants and other items. There are several spots to eat close by- loved Chez Janou. Had the most amazing baked mussels. 2 grocery stores in the same block.

I could go on and on but will stop-there are two words to sum it all up- "just go". Go to Paris, stay in this incredible spot and enjoy a week like no other. Barbara thank you for opening your special home to us- I am already dreaming of a trip next year.

Perfect in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples staying in this lovely home. Communication with the owners (a charming couple) is easy from reservation to checkout, and they are very thorough at checkin to make sure you know where everything is located and how to use the appliances. The building is secure and conveniently located; many restaurants and several grocery shops are very near as are two metro stations. The apartment is comfortable and full of art and collectibles. The terrace was our favorite place, though, and we had breakfast and spent our late afternoons there each day. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to just about anyone.

Beautiful apartment in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Four women stayed in this lovely apartment in August. It is very well situated, right next door to a supermarket. The apartment is spacious, and well stocked with everything you might need. The terrace is just lovely and perfect for drinks and meals outside. I would highly recommend this apartment, and hope to return someday.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

If you want a charming, quintessentially French home in a wonderful location this is it. You truly feel an honored guest In Barbara and Bill’s home. The space is large and comfortable with a well appointed kitchen. There is a beautiful outdoor deck perfect for coffee and breakfast every morning and wine and cheese at night. The two bedrooms are spacious with plenty of room to unpack and stretch out. There are two modern bathrooms. One does not have a toilet, the toilet is located in a separate small space. There is fast internet and cable. Two grocery stores and a bakery are literally out the door. There are endless cafes within a few blocks. It was very hot, 90+ and it was very warm in the late afternoon. It was no problem in the evening as there are great cross breezes. There is a portable AC unit that helped on the few occasions we were home during the day. The location is great being close to so many things yet quiet and peaceful as it faces a quit courtyard. There are 2 Metro stations within easy walking distance. Place des Voges is a beautiful square 2 blocks away with great places for breakfast and many art galleries. We felt very lucky to find this place and I absolutely come back!

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

First the location. I can't imagine a better place to be in Paris than the Marais. Good transport links, many wonderful restaurants to choose from, and a delightful area to just walk around (especially on a Sunday when much of it is pedestrianized).

The apartment is also terrific - spacious, well-equipped, and the hosts were helpful and responsive. Only one caveat - we were there during a heat wave, and for a couple of nights it was pretty uncomfortable. However once the extreme heat passed it was very pleasant in the evenings - the temperature dropped and you get a nice breeze. So if you're used to sleeping in a climate-controlled environment and are traveling at the height of the summer this might not be for you. Those things aside, I don't think you could find a better place to stay.

Beautifully decorated and comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were in Paris for a family wedding so we appreciated being able to sit a group around the dining room table or on the terrace. Great cooking facilities, bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms overlooking a stunning garden. Right next door a great health food store with bread, quiches and other supplies and not far away most of the famous sights of Paris. Lovely owners who made us feel at home will be part of our memories of a special time.
