About the property

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.

Incredibly Beautiful & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Just completed 10 nights at the apartment and from the moment we arrived until our check out we felt completely comfortable and surrounded by beauty. Communication was superb from the beginning. We were allowed access early, met the housekeeper who assisted with our luggage and quickly showed us the spotless accommodation. As with most apartments or hotel rooms of the "boutique" style, the area is not large but offset with meticulous detail in layout and comfort. The bed is of high quality yielding a much-needed respite after 12 hours in an airplane from California. A shower with the options of rain or handheld head is a nice upgrade, with strong water pressure and endless hot water. Le Marais is a beautiful area and when you leave the apartment you are surrounded by so many shops and can get coffee, a croissant, wine, lunch and dinner just outside your doorstep. Very easy to get to all of the sites from here as well (Louvre, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, etc.) This apartment on floor six opening onto a central courtyard was amazingly silent day and night. The elevator is cozy but worked flawlessly. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked with Nespresso coffee (not the imitation stuff) for the espresso machine (we ended up buying one of these machines as soon as we got home), an excellent bottle of wine as well as tea and sweets, and all the dishes and utensils you could possibly need for evenings when you want to stay in and enjoy a meal at the beautiful little dining table by the window watching the sky light up with the colors of the sunset. Finally, Michael arranged for a taxi to pick us up for the next leg of our journey and allowed us to check-out late so we weren’t waiting at the train station. All in all everything was great through the entire process from booking to checking-out which made our stay seamless and stress-free which is exactly what you want while traveling. For my first trip to Paris I couldn't have asked for anything more. I would highly recommend this property and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was my favorite stay of several in Paris VRBO apartments. The Marais is historic, cool and filled with all manner of museums, restaurants, shops and fascinating people. The apartment itself is meticulously and beautifully designed, with every detail considered. It is small but functional and aesthetically satisfying. The elevator is a rare amenity for such an historic building. The Metro, line 1, is close and provides easy access to the city. Michael is a great resource for restaurant, travel and touring recommendations.

A designers jem in the heart of the Marais

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great just described with all the appointments needed for a stay in the city. We were provided with the perfect amount of dinnerware to make meals for ourselves when we felt like having a home cooked meal. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, tasty madelines and a sparkly clean apartment. The glass wall provided a nice sound barrier from the two rooms. Michael was so nice and provided us with recommendations on places to dine and shop along with easy way to communicate with him. He even arranged for a taxi to pick us up the day of our departure which just made our travels so much smoother. We loved the area and would return to the Marais and rent this unit next time. There are so many great shops and restaurants near by, a must go to is Les Philosophes (try the onion soup) and L'as Du Fallafel and make sure to get extra aubergine! You are right near the Place de Voges along with the Picasso museum which were some highlights of our trip. The apartment is convenient to bus and metro lines which made getting around a breeze. Thank you Michael for a wonderful stay, we will be back for sure!

True Paris

  • 5 of 5

Truly lovely. Can't believe I'd say this while visiting Paris, but we truly wish we had more time, so we could have stayed in the apartment more to enjoy it. We loved the silence of the space after being out in the sounds of the city. Cozy, comfortable, with the greatest detailed amenities provided and a perfect location for us. Our host, Michael went above and beyond to accommodate our traveling needs. Enough said, it was exactly what we needed.

Great location, spacious and clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Michael's apartment was perfect. Michael is a fantastic host with great communication beforehand and during our stay to make sure everything ran smoothly. Michael has gone out of his way to make sure every need is catered for.

The apartment is in a great location with a short walk to a metro station, restaurant, supermarkets and shopping. Offers great value for money!
