The Space

Great location. Just 1 minute walk from the famous George Pompidou, les Halles and The George restaurant with an amazing ( really) view of Paris. There are restaurants for all budgets and taste. Walking distance from Notre dame, Hotel De Ville, and Ile st Louis.

A small, charming, attractive and well situated studio in La Marais.

Just minutes from Goerge POMPIDOU, this tasteful studio with a separate kitchen, bathroom, and main room: an ideal starting point to see PARIS. The studio was renovated in 2011 and all furnishing, including the bed is new. The main room has a lovely view of the building`s garden that is shared by all (website hidden) spaces in Paris are rare and it`s a treat to (email hidden) to come home after a day of work or sightseeing.

The main room, I have set it up like suite. It has a real bed (140X200), two comfy leather chairs, a brand new tv with cable; access to 4 English channels, a tasteful, period French round table for two, Internet, Wi Fi, and free internationals calls. ( landline to landline calls only; check with me if your country is included)

The bathroom has a good shower, plenty of storage for your beauty products, and washing machine, a wall heater to keep your towels nice and dry. A hair drier, iron and ironing board, and no need to bring towels or linen; these items are provided for you.

The kitchen, it`s pretty standard in size for a studio in La Marais.
It has two electric burners, a fridge, a micro / grill, a toaster, water boiler, coffee maker, and everything else to make a decent meal. Dishes, glasses, wine glasses, pots and pans, coffee mugs, cups and all cooking utensils are all provided.

Transport to this side of La Marais: excellent. There`s the CHALALET station just 10 minutes away. This is one of PARIS main train stations and most importantly, the RER B can bring you from both airports: CDG and ORLY, within walking distance of the flat on your arrival... a great savings, and no need for an expensive taxi ride. For those travelling by train, again, LINE 4, will bring you to the flat. It`s very easy to travel from here to just about anywhere. Another thing, since you`re in the middle city, you won`t need much public transport to visit some of PARIS major touristic sites that are within walking distance. A big plus when taxis or the metro decides to does happen from time to time...this is the reason, Parisians are ready to pay a high rent to avoid the frustration to get to their jobs in the city.

Where to eat: the list is endless. There are restaurants for all taste and price range. Again, within walking distance to some of capital`s most search after brasseries, clubs, bars, theater, jazz bars, live music outlets, and even great spas.

What I enjoy the most about this flat is the chance to really experience the young, eclectic, fun, and magical creativity of this side of`s never boring and it never stops to surprise me! On that note, this flat is situated ideally for an inner city residence: good transport, grocers, entertainment, banks within walking distance, shopping of all types of fashion and decor, museums: contemporary, historical, great gallery collections, and the list goes on.

I am huge fan of La Marais and I welcome you to my little residence in the heart of just about everything has to offer.

Guest Access

internet : free calls to most international countries: washing machine: hair drier: iron : heat: hot water

Interaction with Guests

I am in contact with my guest by internet, sms, telephone from the day of their arrival to the day of their departure. ( my guests rarely need me in between their stay, but I am never too far -- I don`t live at the flat, however, I do live in the neighborhood)

The Neighborhood

It`s located right in the heart of Paris. You can walk to most major monuments: Hotel de Viile, Notre Dame, Latin Quatier, La Seine, George Pompidou, Palais Royal, Le Louvre, St Michel, St Germain des Pres & Les Halles.

Getting around

Superb public transport: next to one Paris`s most important transport hubs: Chatelet & Les Halles

Other Things to Note

Just around corner: a little street with the most fantastic bakeries: it`s just amazing what they can do with bread and fine products to conclude a reasonable priced, tasteful delight! Just across the street from bread heaven, the most gorgeous dessert shop awaits you with the most beautiful desserts on the planet! ( ok, that`s opinion, but after 15 yrs in Paris, this place is hard to bit!) And, right next to it, there are two more boutiques offering more of the same delights! But my favorite is more classic and traditional, while the other two are more experimental, yet still, amazingly delicious and tastefully fun! ( Ok, I have a serious sweet tooth and I search out for the very best Paris can offer!)

  • Monica is very friendly and nice. She gave us some information about Paris and good places to eat. The apartment is perfectly located in the center of the city. We walked almost to all attractions. The are two supermarkets nearby. The apartment itself is rather small which is common for Paris and ok for two persons and cosy. I would recommend it.

  • This was a great apartment in a perfect location in the Marais area. It is walking distance to Notre Dame, Louvre, and tons of restaurants and shopping areas. It is close to the Hotel de Ville metro stop and was a great central location for everything we did in Paris. Whenever we needed anything, Monica was easily accessible. I highly recommend this apartment for 2 people.

  • Monica was very friendly and helpful and spoke great English (which is good as my Francais is limited to say the least). The apartment is neat as a pin and in a great location for exploring Paris - walking distance from Notre Dame, the Louvre and plenty of great bistros and shopping in the Marais. The apartment can be a little noisy, as it is on the ground floor and you hear the apartment residents coming and going and slamming the front door - so bring some earplugs and you should be all set.

  • Wir haben sehr schöne Tage in Paris erlebt und die Unterkunft von Monica war ein idealer zentraler Ausgangspunkt für unsere Ausflüge. Monica ist eine freundliche Gstgeberin, die sich sehr um das Wohl der Gäste bemüht, auch wenn man sich nicht zu Gesicht bekommt. Die Wohnung ist klein, aber komfortabel eingerichtet. Das Bett ist gemütlich und auf der Matratze lässt es sich gut schlafen. Leider ist die Wohnung durch die ebenerdige Lage zum Hof allen Geräuschen im Hof ausgesetzt, insbesondere, da Mieter durch diesen Hof zu ihren Wohnungen gehen. In der Zeit von 22.30 bis 7.00 Uhr war es allerdings meist ruhig. Die Sauberkeit des Geschirrs in der Küche war Geschmackssache. Das Bad ist ziemlich klein, besonders da auch noch eine Waschmaschine reingestellt wurde. Der Duschkopf funktioniert prima und das Wasser war gut einstellbar und warm. Im Bad kommt die Farbe der Decke durch die Feuchtigkeit runter. Alles in allem zu empfehlen.

  • Monica is a terrific host! We arrived on Saturday and the traffic was terrible - she was waiting by the bus stop to help us get across the street and even helped carry our baggage. She showed us how everything worked and where everything was. She also provided a sheet of handy information. Monica has lived in the US so her English is fluent.

    The flat has an amazing location right by the Pompidou and Notre Dame. And it is more spacious than the pictures show. In fact it had the roomiest shower we have seen in Europe. Quite a luxury !

    All around great experience - we highly recommend Monica and her lovely apartment.

  • We had a really great stay in Paris. The room, the bathroom and the rest of the apartment was very clean. Monica took care of us from the beginning and was always available for questions. The Location is perfect to explore the City, because the Metro-Station is very close (2-min walk). The next time we were happy to come here again.

  • Nice flat with excellent location. Every monument and place to visit was really close to flat location. Monica met us and told where to go and what to do.

    March 2014
  • A lovely little apartment in a great location. Monica was a wonderful host with lots of helpful advice on where to go. We will definitely be back.

    March 2014
  • Visiting Paris and staying at Monica's place was very nice. Apartment is in a great location and close to all amazing places/attractions to see in Paris. Apartment is situated in a very nice nighbourhood, safe and convinient, close to Metro station with connections to all the places where one would like to go. Free phonecalls to home was fantastic :). If we woud go to Paris again, we would like to book the same apartment.

    March 2014
  • The cosy flat is the perfect place for everybody who wants to stay at the center of Paris and to explore this beautiful city.
    Monica is a lovely host! We hope to see her soon next time.
