About this listing
Spacious 3 rooms with the real hexagonal ancient floor, beams and design furniture. 60 sqm2. By foot from Ile Saint-Louis, Pompidou Center, great food shops (macarons, bio, bread), terrace restaurants, boat bus. 2 independant bedrooms & 1 dining room
This is 60 sqm2 flat in a XVIIe century artistic building (painting workshop at the ground floor, violonist at the 3rd floor...). The flat will be all for you : 2 bedrooms with double beds, one dining room, one kitchen and one bathroom.
What people usually like about my place is its perfect situation in Paris, its typical architectural style and its soul, mixing art, modern design, books, ancient family furniture and hand made furniture, made by myself or brought back from my trips. It creates a Bohême atmosphere.
The building is quiet, in a bohème atmosphere, with a violonist living in front of my house, a painting workshop at the ground floor. The whole is in a familial atmosphere. It is required to say "bonjour" and smile to the neighbours. :)
Grounds, doors, ceiling are not fully straight, and the three storeys are without elevator. It's a 18th century building.
It is equiped with:
- two separate bedrooms, each having its double bed
- 1 dining room with 3 chairs
- 1 separate bathroom
- 1 kitchen
- shelves to put your clothes away
- a sofa.
You have access to the fully equiped kitchen (washing machine for the dish), the bathroom (washing machine for clothes, shower and wc all together), the dining room. You have some room to stock your food in the fridge.

I will be very happy to answer all your questions by mail or telephone during your stay. (Free phone in the flat for France)
The neighborhood is one of the oldest and most beautiful as well as most central area of Paris.

Camille is an outstanding host. She made us feel welcome well before we arrived, explained the neighborhood to us, and suggested many options for us. Le Marais is a must-see in Paris, and by staying here you will be right at the center of the best that le Marais has to offer. We felt like we were part of the neighborhood while staying at Camille's place, which is exactly what makes airbnb unique. If you want a real Parisian experience, you can't do better.
Camille is a wonderful host. We were made to feel very welcome, relaxed and at home immediately. She spent time listening to us and what we wanted from the trip and suggested places that would meet our needs, this was very kind and much appreciated.
Camille was an amazing host! She was so helpful and sweet. The neighborhood was wonderful and I felt very safe, even while walking alone to the bus very early in the morning.
Camille's apartment was absolutely lovely! And I promise you can never find a better location in Paris than hers, literately right in the very center of Le Marais! I have visited Paris several times and only this time I felt an authentic Parisian experience because of her apartment. It is truly Bohemian style, and if you are into that style, it is the place for you in Paris.
Camille was so very nice, kind, helpful, considerate, and lovely. I have found a friend in her. =)
I had a wonderful week in Paris at Camille apartment.
Super well located. The room is like it looks in the photos.
Camille was really helpful. She had maps, guides and books
About Paris. She made me feel at home. Thanks Camille!
Dovete prenotare questo appartamento!camille é speciale, gentilissima e pronta a risolvere ogni problema o fornire consigli...purtroppo non abbiamo avuto modo di conoscerci perché non si trovava in cittá durante il mio soggiorno tra fine maggio e inizio giugno, ma si é preoccupata di me a distanza rimanendo sempre in contatto!la sua casetta é un bijoux nel divino Marais, la stanza é spaziosissima, pulitissima e confortevole, piena di guide e libri che possono fare da valido suggerimento!favoloso fare colazione al tavolino e spiare la vita parigina dei vicini deal palazzo di fronte!!!...la posizione é invidiabile..sarete a pochi minuti da tutto, nel cuore della zona ebraica (e vicino a panetterie coi dolci e le baguettes più buone del mondo) ai negozi chic del Marais , a place de vosges, a Notre dame, al museo Picasso, al beaubourg, a Saint paul..devo aggiungere altro?se viaggiate sole come me quartiere tranquillo e sicurissimo, pericoloso solo per il portafogli!!!
What a fantastic and bohemian experience!!!i want to live here!!!The room is amazing, clean an big... and Camille is the sweetest host ever!very kind and helpful...she was not in the apartment but she helped me by mail !
The location is superb and incredible...it's only 5 minutes walking distance from Place des Vosges and Museo Picasso..in the heart of Marais...camille's house is "my home in Paris"...you can live a real Parisian experience out the door of the flat... there are so many vintage and chic shops, restaurants, patisserie, bars, anything you want at your footsteps...I will return here!!!
