Lovely Parisian family apartment on the 4th floor of an 18th century building in a popular street on the edge of the Marais.
The apartment has a large open plan living room/kitchen, one bathroom with separate bath tub and shower and two bedrooms (one has a large sofa bed).
Double glazing on the side looking over the street and park, the bedrooms look over the Parisian courtyard roofs.
Every modern convenience (sic) plus sheets, towels etc. but still no lift/elevator after 10 years of fighting and winning through the French courts!!!
Every type of traditional French food store can be found within 200 meters max PLUS cafés, restaurants, chemists, supermarkets, markets (Marché des Enfants Rouges) and a Park.
I keep one cupboard in the second bedroom locked for personal stuff and otherwise guests have access to every thing and plenty of storage space.
The internet and TV are supplied by high speed fiber optic cable. Calls to landlines in most countries are free.
Interaction with Guests
If I am renting you my whole apartment, you may only meet my very kind Concierge and her husband but I can discuss the renting out of just one room to someone willing to put up with a grumpy old widower!
I have been living in France for 40 years and can try and help out if required. This is our family home that we rent out regularly on other sites.
If you are a young or old"bobo" you will love the area if you don't know it already.
The Picasso and Pompidou museums are just two of many close, there are hundreds of galleries, chic, clothes shops, bars, cafés etc. The Canal St Martin and the Bastille areas are also close by.
Downstairs you can rent municipal bikes and electric cars. There are many bus routes and at least six metro stations very close by. (15 minutes walk)
Have a look at (website hidden) Maps/ Corner of Rue des Archives, rue de Bretagne.
Other Things to Note
I am very happy to help you with any questions. I also have a large loft in Sète, near Montpelier (which is also for rent or sale).
As I have to move out of Paris and take a 3 hour TGV train when I rent I cannot take Bookings for less than 3 nights. - Well 3 Nights is the minimum tariff.
Rules were made to be broken! But....
1 This is our family home.
2 We have neighbors and wooden floors (please try and remove high heels when entering).
3 If you really must smoke, please lean out of the window in the living room (not too much).
4 No candles in the bedrooms.
5 No more than 6 people staying overnight.
6 Last but not least - I hate this and in six years we have had only one bad experience - the deposit will not be refunded if there are complaints from the neighbors about raucous parties involving more than 8 people! Sorry but this is not a great place for Stag weekends etc. as the lovely neighbors work and some of them have young children (whom we can't hear!).
LASTLY there have been one or two cases where more than the announced number have stayed in our home. In future we we will have to charge out of the deposit.
Double bedroom with 160 cm wide mattress. The room has been redecorated since! Note the large amount of hanging space, shelves and drawers!
Très bel appartement, propre et proche des plus beaux monuments de Paris. Richard est à l'écoute et réponde rapidement à nos demandes.
Je le recommande à tous ceux qui veulent passer un séjour sympa à Paris.
Merci beaucoup pour ces commentaires très utiles et vos remarques très gentilles.
Je suis navré pour la panne d'internet la dernière soirée!
Le procès pour l'ascenseur est gagné depuis deux ans (après 7 ans d'appels etc.) mais on est obligé de faire vendre les biens du promoteur car il refuse de payer malgré les ordres de la justice. On a payé pour un aprt. avec ascenseur et c'est ce promoteur qui a fait faire les plans!!!
Vu la vitesse de la Justice je pense que nous serions indemnisé et/ou nous aurons une ascenseur en 2018! Hélas.
The arrangements to arrive into the house were very clear, simple and effective.The neighborhood is one of the best in Paris and this apartment is in the heart of all the action and nightlife. There are grocery stores, cheese market, wine shop, flowers and a yummy bakery all at the foot of the door! The apartment is quite and comfortable for a two bedroom and with a fourth floor ( walk up) you have a beautiful view of the area. There is constant hot water in the shower and plenty of closet space which were important to us two girls. Loads of clean towels, sheets, cleaning supplies. Overall the apartment had everything we needed and we enjoyed our stay.
Awesome and wonderful! My 2 friends and I stayed in Richard's home for 5 days and we had a great time. The location is really great! It is right next to a market and we learned that there is a weekend outdoor market directly behind the apartment where you can buy fresh groceries or prepared meals. We walked from his apartment to many local attractions including Champs d' Elysees. There is also a Metro right down the street. I am definitely looking forward to staying here again. Great place Richard!
