About this listing
This 55 m² apartment is situated on the fourth floor of an 19th-century building (with an elevator). The main entrance gate is protected by an intercom. The apartment has southern exposure. The entrance door opens into a hall leading to the living room, the kitchen and the bedroom. The elegant living room has a brown-parqueted floor, white walls and numerous books. Since this room is decorated with antique and some vintage/modern decorative items and paintings it has a friendly atmosphere. The very quiet and sunny bedroom is parqueted as well and has white painted walls with a king size bed (the mattress is new and very comfortable, 1m80 large)). The decoration of this room is more contemporary than the rest of the apartment.
The kitchen is both convenient and elegant. It has white-tiled walls and floor. It is also well equipped.
The apartment has a large cable TV, a stereo, a DVD player and a mac. There is access to a fiber connection (very high-speed WIFI) in the all apartment.

The district is friendly and cosmopolitan and there are all sorts of essential shops, bakeries, groceries and services in the neighborhood. This is a central area, very convenient to travel all around Paris. The apartment is also very close to "rue de Bretagne" with its wide choice of quality food products, restaurants, cafes, and other services. It is also near Beaubourg's National Museum of Modern art. It is short walking distance to points of interest such as the Seine River, the Notre Dame Cathedral on Ile de la Cité, the Ile Saint Louis, and the Louvre.

We absolutely loved the apartment, well presented & very clean. Great location, close to Metro & grocery store. Olivier was not available to meet us on arrival but he had arranged for his friend to greet us. I thought how nice it was that fruit, eggs, ham, yoghurt & other essentials had been purchased for us. We were made to feel very welcome. An amazing library, lots of very old books, pity we couldn't understand French. The bed was also very comfortable. We were very pleased there was a lift as the apartment was 4 floors up. Thank you Olivier for a pleasant stay.
We had a great time at Oliviers appartement, which is even more cosy and beautiful then on the photos- the perfect parisian feeling! Olivier made everything work out perfectly, he even send us a google map in advance, where he marked a lot of helpful tips from supermarkekts to restaurants and shops in the neighbourhood. The communication also worked out very well and we could get into the appartement the moment we arrived from the airport. The appartement was proper and very well equipped and he left some foods there for us, what we found very sweet. The neighbourhood is just perfect in the upper Marais, which is not as touristy as the southern part. Everywhere in the little streets you cand find small stores, bars and lovely restaurants. We would definitively come back for the next time in Paris!
We loved this apartment - with a very short stay in Paris the location was perfect and this most delicious apartment fitted our needs. We felt very secure and very comfortable. Marta met us at the apartment and went through the basics. Delighted to have essentials for breakfast already in the fridge. Very comfortable bed and dark curtains to block out the early morning light. Thanks Olivier we had the best time in Paris and in your delightful Parisian apartment. Highly recommend. Thanks Kerry & Bruce
We had a fantastic stay at this charming flat. Olivier was great at anticipating what we would need and having things ready for us (toiletries, food, drinks...) He even created a profile for us on his computer so that we would have a desktop to use.
Olivier has a great spot in a great part of Paris. I would reccomend it as a perfect place for couples to enjoy Paris.
We loved 'our' apartment which made us feel very much at home. It was small but roomy with a nice compact kitchen with everything you could want for cooking. We felt welcomed by a friend of Olivier's who was available to us by text & phone when we had any questions. The location was ideal, easy walk to the metro, fabulous restaurants,shops and galleries....a mere 2-3 blocks from the Meseu Picasso. What/where could be better?!
The place is fantastic, my wife and I stayed here as our first stop in our honeymoon, it was perfect.
Access to central Paris is extremely easy, with the local cafe's also perfect for a light meal.
