About this listing

Perfectly located chic studio apartment overlooking the rooftops of Paris in the trendy Marais quarter. Recently renovated with architect's help - newly painted, new linens, and ready to welcome you for your Parisian stay!

The space

Beautiful, chic studio apartment in the stylish Marais area of Paris - recently renovated!

On the top floor or an old Parisian building, overlooking a calm and quiet courtyard and rooftops of the Marais, you will find my little Marais nest waiting to welcome you.

The apartment is a studio and measures 17m2/ 200 sq ft. It has a great layout so it feels quite spacious. The apartment is on the 4th floor (European), and there is no elevator (so keep this in mind if you do not like walking up stairs!). On the other hand, this will help you burn off all of that wine, cheese and chocolate mousse.

You walk in and there is a little hallway, the bathroom is on the right, and then it opens into the main room, which has plenty of storage space (there are cupboards/shelves designed by a Scandinavian architect), a cute kitchen tucked away behind cabinets, the pull out couch, table and chairs, etc.

The apartment has lots of light thanks to three very large windows, which overlook a quiet courtyard. It is equipped with a microwave, toaster oven, cable TV with a few English stations (CNN and BBC), Wifi, free phone to landlines, coffee/tea, hair dryer -- everything you need! And if there is anything not there that you need, just let me know.

I recently replaced all of the pillows, towels, linens, etc. so that things feel fresh and new for your stay. There are toiletries (soap, toilet paper) and food staples (olive oil, salt, sugar, tea, coffee) ready for you when you arrive so that you do not need to worry about shopping. There might even be a surprise welcome gift waiting for you...

I lived in this apartment for over a year and absolutely loved every minute of it! I was always so happy to get back to my little nest in the Marais. I actually miss living there sometimes (but am now married to a French man, and we have two children so we needed more room). You sleep on a very comfortable pull out couch - every bit as good as a bed, believe me. My husband is 193cms / 6'3'', and he was fine on the pull out bed.

The studio is like a cozy little nest looking over the rooftops! It's really a charming place. People love staying here, and I hope you do, too!

For check in / check out times, I have put 1pm check in and 10am check out. If there are no other guests coming in or out the days you arrive / leave, then these times are more flexible.

Please contact me for more info and testimonials from past guests. Happy to help any way that I can.

Hope to welcome you to my studio in the Marais!


Guest access

Guests have access to the entire apartment.

Interaction with guests

I interact with guests over e-mail and telephone and usually have my agent meet people on arrival. With a four year old, 16 month old, and another on the way (!), it is too busy for me to come meet the guests in person. But I am happy to communicate as much/little via e-mail and telephone as the guest(s) would like.

Other things to note

Close to the Seine, the metro, shops, restaurants, really in the heart of it all!

I can only recommended Christine's apartment if you're looking to explore not just the major tourist attractions of Paris (Notre Dame, Centre Pompidou and Shakespeare & Co are all within good walking distance) but the Marais which is brimming with cute boutiques/shops and cafes and bars. Such a good atmosphere there, and it was so nice that it was literally on the doorstep. As for the apartment itself it was very clean and comfortable and so exciting to look out the window in the morning and see the rooftops of Paris before you! It's worth lugging your bags all the way up those stairs for it! If you don't mind lack of space (the kitchen is basically just a few appliances and a sink in a cupboard) then you can't go wrong with Christine's apartment. Christine is a fantastic host to boot - she responds to messages super fast and her manual/guide was so detailed and helpful, I felt very reassured that in case anything went wrong it would get sorted ASAP. Thank you Christine!! :)

Very great place to stay! It is close to the metro and in a great neighborhood! The apartment is quaint but perfect with everything you might need.

Perfect location, adorable, well-outfitted quintessentially Parisian living experience! We stayed here for one week for a mother-daughter trip. The apartment is tiny, but very well designed and had everything we needed. The location is incredible--walkable to everything. The only issue we had at all was that we arrived on the same day as Pride Paris and it was incredibly noisy all night long (as I'm sure it was everywhere in the city that night). Besides that, it was very peaceful, quiet, and quaint. Highly recommend!

Christine's studio is a delight! I stayed for a week and had a lovely time. It is true to the description provided and provided a great base to explore the Marais area as well as other areas of Paris. It is a petit studio so perfect for one person but two if you're very comfortable with each other. It was nice and clean and had everything that I needed for a week's stay. Thanks Christine!

Beautiful apartment, maintained very well. Christine makes sure that guests will feel comfortable and at home in this clean, updated space. Instructions are clear and detailed, make sure to read through the notebook she leaves which outlines everything you need to know. Also, this includes suggestions for local places to visit. As others have mentioned, the stairs were a challenge with heavy, large suitcases. While this wasn't a surprise, we underestimated the difficulty of lugging heavy, large suitcases down the stairs. It was tough! Would highly recommend, and would love to stay again. Wonderful location, beautiful building, close to everything you could need.

We had a fantastic stay at Christine's apartment. It is right in the heart of the perfect arrondissement for visitors - close to restaurants, lots of shopping, bars, and so much more. The check in process was easy; an agent was awaiting our arrival and was helpful in showing us the unit. Christine also had a binder of suggestions for everything from sightseeing to picnic spots that came in handy as well. We will definitely book again next time we visit Paris!

I am Christine, an American from Boston living in Paris with my French husband. We have two daughters - 5 years and 2 years old, and a baby boy who is 1 year old. I met my husband the first day I arrived in Paris - talk about luck and destiny. I love living in France and am happy to give you recommendations on restaurants, shops, museums, etc. I also love welcoming guests to my apartment in the Marais and family house in Brittany. I will try to be as helpful to you as possible.

The apartment in the Marais is my little treasure in Paris. I bought it eight years ago and lived it in it very happily for a long time (until we needed to move to find a bigger place for our growing family). I miss living there!!! It is small but doesn't feel small because of the big windows, and it is quiet, and cute, and in the best location. It's like a little cozy nest in the middle of the Marais. I hope you love it as much as I do! I recently renovated the place so everything feels fresh for your stay.

We also recently started renting the family house of my husband in Brittany. It is such a beautiful spot with so much to do - hiking, biking, golf, tennis, beach, visiting historical sites and seaside villages - I could go on! The house is right on the water and a perfect place to explore Brittany. It's big with 6 bedrooms - plenty of room for friends and family.

Je parle francais aussi donc n'hesitez pas a m'ecrire en francais si vous voulez.

Don't hesitate to contact me with your questions, and I will try to be as helpful as possible.

Thank you!

A bientot,
