The Space

A stylish artist's penthouse in central Paris near the Pompidou Center with conservatory room giving onto rooftop terrace with beautiful views over the Paris rooftops to the Eiffel Tower and the Sacre Coeur. The apartment is accessed by a lift to the sixth floor.

You will be staying in a private bedroom near to the front door on a separate floor from the hosts. Your room has a full sized double bed, table, and cupboard space for hanging clothes. There is also has a kettle, microwave, complimentary tea and coffee, and cable television. This bedroom is next to a modern shower room, to be shared with the hosts. Towels and bath robes are provided and there is a hair dryer and iron should you need them. There is a washer drier.

The hosts live upstairs where there is a beautiful living room, terrace, and kitchen with all mod cons. You may use the kitchen to make drinks.

We offer a continental breakfast with cereal, freshly baked baguette, croissants, yoghurts, orange juice, tea and coffee, served in the conservatory room overlooking the rooftops.

You are in the Marais, the heart of Paris, with designer shops, bars, clubs, restaurants in abundance. You are a short walk from the river Seine, the Louvre, Left Bank, Place des Vosges, and Notre Dame.

Chatelet-Les Halles metro and RER (Line B) is nearby giving direct access to both Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airport. From Gare du Nord there is a direct metro line to Etienne Marcel metro station close by. If coming by car there is a public car park underneath our building accessed from Rue Beaubourg. Velib bicycles are available 30m metres from the entrance.

Simon loves cooking and by arrangement you may join us for supper most nights for €22 for a 3 course meal. Also house red wine is available at €2 per glass or €10 for an excellent bottle.
We also can extend the breakfast to a full English brunch on Sundays for €8/person.

  • Sarah was wonderful and extremely helpful. We didn't get to meet Simon as he was out of town. Sarah welcomed us even though due to train delays we arrived very late. Our accommodations were great, especially since our room and bathroom were on the first floor, while Sarah was mostly on the second floor. This provided a great deal of privacy but all we had to do was call upstairs if we needed anything. And the breakfasts on the balcony were lovely, with fresh baked French bread. The location was perfect, withing walking distance to many attractions. Thanks so much Sarah, you made our stay in Paris most pleasant.

  • I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay at Simon & Sarah's.

    Starting from pre -arrival, upon booking confirmation, I promptly received detailed information about how to make my way from the metro to the the flat. All my subsequent enquiries were also promptly answered and Sarah did a great job allaying most of my fears around general safety (I was initially nervous about sharing a flat with a couple I would be meeting for the first time and was also worried about walking from the metro alone late at night.) She was right, those were needless worries, as the neighborhood is bustling and alive at any time and perfectly safe. More importantly, the feeling of meeting strangers will disappear once they warmly welcome you.

    Sarah and Simon (though I spent more time with Sarah) truly go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay both in the flat and when out navigating Paris. You will receive a welcome packet with a useful walking map to nearby sights and restaurants. Sarah will even sit with you to go over the map and will happily answer your questions.

    The breakfast in the mornings with Sarah was nice - the view, food, and company all added up to positive experience. Finally, as others have echoed, the location can't be beat as a result of it's proximity to shops, cafes, and land marks.

    This was my first time using Airbnb and I must say, thanks to Sarah, it was a choice that I did not regret. I would happily stay there again.

  • Unfortunately we had no chance to meet Simon and Sarah but they leaved us a lot of usefull papers such as maps, nearby good restaurants, shopping etc. We contacted each other with mail easily. The flat was better than we expected. The flat was in the heart of the city, 5 minutes by walk to metro and RER station. We spent great time specially at the terrace of the flat.

  • Esperienza più che positiva su tutta la linea. Simon e Sarah hanno l'ospitalità nel loro DNA. A casa loro ti senti "coccolato" e parte della famiglia pur godendo della massima indipendenza e privacy. Mia figlia ed io abbiamo un unico rammarico: esserci potute fermare solo 3 notti.
    L'appartamento è letteralmente accanto al centro Pompidou, in un bellissimo quartiere ricco di ottimi ristoranti, e a pochissimi passi dalla principali attrazioni di Parigi (Louvre, Notre Dame, ecc.).
    La camera, oltre ad avere un letto molto comodo, è dotata di TV e di un'ottima connessione WiFi.
    Ottima e generosa la colazione, servita sul bellissimo terrazzino con vista su torre Eiffel e Montmartre.
    Per non parlare della gustosissima cena che Simon ha cucinato per noi una sera.
    L'ospitalità di Simon e Sarah hanno reso il nostro soggiorno a Parigi davvero speciale. Grazie !

  • Simon and Sarah's house was very centrally located and had a very nice view from the gallery. The house was neat and clean and had all the required amenities and guidelines. Unfortunately they were not there to receive us but made all the necessary arrangements for a smooth check in.
    We met them on the last day and they were very helpful and friendly. Sarah also made us a nice breakfast. We would surely recommend their house for b&b.

  • The host's bnb description is very accurate. Very clean and safe neighborhood and building. Once in the flat, there is a spiral stair case to get to the top floor living area, kitchen and beautiful conservatory. We had lots of privacy. We stayed nine days. Due to an unexpected family event, Simon and Sarah were not there for the first five days. They made sure to arrange everything and follow up with calls and emails. No problems at all. Sarah was very lovely, gracious and attentive. We felt welcomed and cared for.

  • We had a great stay at their place. Lovely loft in the middle of Paris. Walking distance to various attractions and surrounded by many nice cafes and restaurants. Didnt manage to meet Simon but Sarah was very nice and helpful. She even prepared a nice breakfast for us. Would definitely recommend this place.

  • 4일간 사라의 이파트에서 지냈습니다. 사라는 굉장히 유쾌하고 친절하였으며 2층 구조로된 아파트 또한 매력적입니다.
    2층 테라스에서 먹는 조식은 낭만적이었고, 매우 좋은 곳에 위치하고 있어 다니기 너무 좋았습니다.
    오뗄드빌, 샤틀레알, 에띠엔 마르셀역까지 걸어서 이동할 수 있고, 마레지구와 노틀담까지도 걸어서 갈 수 있을 정도로 가까운 곳이 위치하고 있습니다.
    깔끔하지 못하고 샤워장에 배수가 잘 안되는 점만 뺀다면 아주 훌륭한 아파트입니다.

  • Good location and artistic atmosphere.
    Easy to go any metro and really close to Pompidou center.
    The breakfast at the balcony was enough to enjoy the city Paris.
    What a pleasant experience~

  • We had a great stay in Simon and Sarah's Marais apartment. They weren't there for the weekend so we had the place to ourselves which was nice. The cleaner met us to let us in and give us the key. It's a lovely apartment with great views and an excellent location just beside the Pompidou Centre. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone who was looking for a central base in Paris.
