This family-friendly apartment is located in the historic part of Paris named Le Marais.

Just everything is at your door:

- Dozens of restaurants and bars, disco, art galleries, boutiques, department stores...

  • Apartamento pequeño, confortable, muy bien ubicado.
    Los servicios y comodidades coinciden con las descripciones.
    Nosotros éramos 5 adultos y si bien el espacio es justo, se encuentra adecuadamente dispuesto.

  • Great location! Well appointed and very charming. Ideal property for a couple or small family. Just note the flat is on. The 3rd floor, so it's 4 flights of stairs to walk up with no elevator. Not a problem for us, we needed the exercise to work off all the great food!

  • A small apartment for 5 people but the location made up for that. A fantastic area with the Pompidou and a whole host of interesting restaurants and shops just down the road in one direction and in the other the Seine and the Notre Dame Cathedral.

  • Merci Marie, c'était parfait de vivre quelques jours dans ce quartier. Nous avons beaucoup aimé l'appartement, très confortable et très pratique. Une chouette salle de bain et le tout très bien chauffé. Le quartier était parfait aussi avec tous ces petits bistrots sympas et ces beaux parcs. Il faudra revenir aux beaux jours !!

  • We had a fantastic weekend in Paris staying in this lovely, bijou apartment. The location is perfect and the apartment was lovely and warm on a cold November weekend. A great coffee shop 'Terrass de Cafe' just a couple of doors away. We'd definitely like to return.

  • The apartment was clean, cheery and extremely well located. The beds were very comfortable. We stayed with our three children (10 and under) and had a very good stay. Marie was extremely responsive to all email requests and left a helpful book of suggestions. On the one occasion where there was a minor problem with the apartment, she responded extremely quickly and had the matter dealt with immediately. One thing to note is that the apartment is best suited for a couple or a family, as there is not much privacy. (E.g. The bedroom and bathroom doors are just sliding louvered doors.) This wasn't a problem for us, but it might be for others.

  • Hi Marie...thank you so much for my family's wonderful experience at your home. They said it was by far the nicest place they stayed in their travels through 5 cities in Europe!!! The neighborhood was great and the apartment was perfect! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!!!

  • Love the location of the apartment. It was in a perfect (email hidden)ose to the subway and 10 minute walk to the Louvre. Great neighbourhood. There were 3 of us - 2 in the bedroom and 1 on the murphy bed.....and it was quite comfortable and very clean. Marie was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to a friend.

  • This apartment made our trip to Paris! I was in Paris with 4 other friends, and we loved Marie's place. It is in an incredible location, comfortably slept the five of us, and allowed us to relax after a long day of site seeing around Paris. The guidebook and guidance given by Marie was invaluable as well. 100% stay here if you are planning a trip to Paris! 5 minute walk to Hotel de Ville (Metro Stop), great little boutiques and amazing cafes very close. I could go on and on, I loved the place so much! The people living in the area were also very nice and helpful with any questions that we had.

  • Fabulous flat in perfect location. The apartment had everything you could possibly need for a great stay in Paris - the bed was incredibly comfortable, the heating great, plenty of hot water, beautiful decor, a delightful selection of 90s videos for lazy times, great exposed beams and stone walls, all very stylish. All the main sites of Paris are within walking distance and Marie was a great host. I really recommend staying here. We were a family of 5 and though the flat is not big it was perfect for our needs.
