The Space

"La maison des escargots" (The House of Snails) is one of the most spectacular and unique design apartments in Paris. Created by its owner, a prominent French artist, it features built-in furniture - a dining table that slides out over a large bath, a queen-sized bed that folds into the wall - as well as its much-photographed walls, which are decorated with approximately 250 sculptures of snail shells.

The apartment is located just 100 meters from the Place des Vosges in the Northern Marais, which is now the most sought after neighborhood in Paris for those in fashion and design. Some of the city's best restaurants, cafes, and bars are just steps away, as is the Metro.

364 ft2 with a sunny 120ft2 terrace, the apartment has a kitchenette with sink, stove, microwave, and refrigerator, and a bath. Wifi and high definition internet TV with HDMI connection are included. There is also a washer and an outdoor drying area.

I'll meet you in the neighborhood, get you settled in, and be available throughout your stay to answer any questions or help with any problems.

  • Overall the apartment was wonderful. It was clean and tidy when we arrived with great local suggestions and tips typed for us with a bottle of wine.
    Josh was a great host and was very quick to respond to all of our questions and was really proactive about confirming our reservation. This apartment is definitely a unique Parisian apartment that I highly recommend.

  • Josh was great. He met us at the apartment when we arrived and had all of our need-to-know info printed for us. The apartment was exactly as in the photos-delightfully strange and superbly clean. And the neighbourhood was incredible. I think that the next time we go to Paris we'll just hang out in Marais. A stone's throw from a gorgeous park Place de Vosges, a few minutes walk from the Metro, surrounded by tons of restaurants, boulangeries, shops and cafes but still very quiet. Most definitely recommend it for 1-2 people.

  • An excellent flat in a great part of town! The snail house is a truly unique and a wonderful base from which to explore Paris. You are near the Bastille and Le Marais, and have plenty of bars in the area if a vibrant nightlife is what you are after. I would definitely stay there again next time I am in town.

  • The flat is in a perfect location with many wonderful places to eat, drink, and shop. We loved the natural light and indoor outdoor feel from all of the windows. The terrace was a special treat. Our host was fantastic, very easy to contact and answered all questions promptly. Check in and check out were a breeze. We would stay there again or recommend it to friends and family.

  • A beautiful, unique studio overlooking the Marais. It's very much a concept apartment replete with the dozens of snails and moveable furniture. It's a great spot for a romantic getaway. Josh was responsive with questions and have good recommendations. The only drawbacks are that it is on a sixth floor walk up which might be straining for some people and the only toilet with privacy is outside the apartment by the hallway.

  • nice, though quite small apartment, very bright and cosy.
    great design, and vibe,
    ever-transofrming apartment: the beds folds up to save more space, the large table slides out, opening a bathtub - you feel like in a future. as though some of facilities are not that convenient to use (the kitchen sink is to be used as a washing sink, the standalone bathtub can make you spill the water, everything is so nice, that you can forgive that minor inconveniences. the design and the comfort of a wonderful and friendly penthouse apt with a terrce is wonderful, as well as the host, which was always welcoming and careful, providing with all necesary details on the neighbouring attractions and places.

  • Joshua was a great host and the apartment exceeded our expectations. Wonderful experience on all levels.
