"From the moment that we arrived at the apartment, I knew I had made the right choice. There were four of us, me, my husband, mother and aunt, (mother and aunt are in their early eighties). I breathed a sigh of relief as the big heavy outer door clicked open onto a quite courtyard with timeless light. The inner door to the actual building opened onto a "perfect" stairway and tiny elevator. We could have been in any era at that point. Finally, the door to the apartment opened to reveal a lovely, bright and elegant apartment that we truly enjoyed and relaxed in each and every day. The location is unbelievable--it was our first time in Paris, so perhaps there are other equally well located spots, but truly, we felt so chic and safe. Our contact, Tamara, was so kind and polite and helpful. The Place des Voges, the restaurants, the Chemin Vert Metro literally right around the corner, the neighborhood feel, the peaceful sleeps--we can't wait to return to Paris."
"We are having a fantastic visit. Your flat is so....perfect!"
--Joe M., San Francisco
Our recently renovated, two bedroom, two bathroom apartment on the Rue des Tournelles is less than a three minute walk from the Place des Vosges.
This 835 square foot apartment, on the first floor (second floor American with elevator) of a 19th century "Regency" building has been lovingly renovated and restored. The old herringbone floors shine as they reflect the light from the floor to ceiling windows. The grand plaster molding sits majestically atop the 12' high walls, and a gold leaf Napoleon III mirror once again hangs above the 19th century marble mantel of the living room.
There is a "very comfortable" large queen sized (160cm/63" wide) mattress in the master bedroom and large (90cm/35.5"wide) twin mattresses in the 2nd bedroom which can also be made into a (180cm/71" wide) king size bed. Both bedrooms look out onto a very quiet courtyard.
What a joy to wake up to coffee and croissants at the slate counter-top of our open style, fully equipped kitchen. There are lots of bakeries andfood shops minutes from the apartment door. In fact, the largest outdoor market in Paris near Place Bastille on Rue Richard Lenoir is just a 5 minute walk away.
The 11 sq ft shower of the master bathroom is roomy and comfortable, and the 1920's Metro tiles help evoke a wonderful retro feel to the otherwise contemporary second full bathroom.
All amenities was chosen for design and practicality, from the Miele washer-dryer to the LCD television and the code free DVD player. Even the quilts are hypoallergenic white Hungarian goose down. Everything is top notch, right down to the large black and white landscape photographs by American artist, Stuart Rome.
In the apartment you'll also find our guidebook to the neighborhood; favorite restaurants, cafes, wine shops, bakeries, and markets. You could spend a week in Paris and never leave Le Marais, even though the Seine, the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Musee D'Orsay are just a short walk away.
