About listing

This beautiful one-bedroom (50 sq meters - 540 sq feet) is in the historic Marais district : the address is Rue Vieille du Temple, a stone throw from Rue des Francs Bourgeois. With its 17th century beamed ceilings, it is indeed typical of the area. The apartment is located on the second french floor with elevator (third floor US). The furnishing and amenities are good quality, in a tasteful contemporary parisian style, with clean lines and a controlled use of color. The living room enjoys a particularly bright and airy feel, thanks to the very high ceilings and tall twin window bays (street facing, with double glazing). The bedroom is perfectly peaceful, thanks to a courtyard orientation. The kitchen is equipped with all you would need for cooking (hob, extractor, dish washer, microwave, all dishes and utensils, etc.) The bathroom is well designed and has a shower cabinet and wash basin. This apartment has all that one would hope for in terms of brightness, peace and quiet, comfort, modern amenities and style.

    We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was exactly as described and there was a binder outlining how to work all the appliances. Everything seemed to be in good condition. We used the dishwasher and washer/dryer, but we did not cook at all. I bought eggs, planning to make an omelet for supper the night we arrived, but oddly there was no frying pan, just pots. The location was great for exploring the Marais, close to the Rue des Rosiers and the Place des Vosges. The owner arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and take us directly to the apartment, which we found very convenient, but it was an easy walk to the taxi station by the Saint Paul metro. I was amazed at how quiet it was inside the apartment because the street was quite lively, but there are double windows which insulate the living room from street noise. The kitchen was stocked with basic supplies including laundry detergent and there is a grocery store just across the street where we picked up a few snacks, juice, etc. There were plenty of cafs and restaurants nearby--crpes, pizza, falafel, all within a couple of blocks of the apartment. We had amazing galettes and cider at Breizh caf, just up the street. My mother slept in the bedroom, and my son and I slept on the sofa bed, which was actually bigger than the bed, and surprisingly comfortable. The one thing we would have liked was some lamps near the sofa so we could read in bed, but mostly we were too tired to read anyway. I would absolutely stay in this apartment again, and would recommend it to any friends who are going to Paris. 22 March 2014 - 02:54:37

    We just returned from a three week stay at Carole's apartment and would return in a minute. The apartment is quiet, warm and very nicely appointed. it is quite large by Parisian standards with a spacious living room, bedroom, nice kitchen, and compact, but perfectly nice bathroom. The location is great--close to good restaurants and shops and a great spot from which to venture out into other parts of the city. We have stayed in a number of apartments in Paris over the years and would put this one at the top of the list. 11 December 2017 - 05:12:00

    Very comfortable apartment in a great area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The neighbors were a bit noisy, but we let Carole know and she has said that she will address this issue. The apartment was clean, comfortable and welcoming. 28 November 2017 - 21:38:00

    Stayed here for five days. Was perfect for us. Nicely located close to shops and many tourist locations. Was exactly as pictured. I had high expectations and was not disappointed. The only negative was the apartment is not on the top floor. You can hear your neighbors walking overhead in the morning. Was not bad but probably not for those who want to sleep in. I would definitely stay here again! 12 November 2017 - 02:32:00

    My wife and I stayed here for a week in October and had a lovely visit. Apartment is spacious, well stocked and well decorated. Lot's of restaurants and shopping near by and metro stop is just a 10 minute walk. Access was easy and Carole was happy to let us arrive mid-morning when our flight got in. She even left a bottle of wine. One night we had some noisy neighbors upstairs, but that was the only negative. Highly recommended. 31 October 2017 - 18:19:00

    Many buildings in the center of Paris do not have an elevator or provided as much space as this Parisian apartment. The apartment does a good job of keeping original historic charm with modern conveniences. 17 October 2017 - 13:24:00

    We spent a long weekend in the apartment in Feb 2011. The apartment is lovely and there is no better location in the Marais; however, there were a few issues that affected the quality of our experience. Firstly, there is currently major renovation works being carried out in the stairwell and hallways. This results in building dust being carried into the apartment and you have to be careful not to brush the walls on your way up, otherwise you will be covered in dust. We were also woken up early in the morning as the bedroom faces onto the courtyard where the builders were working. I think that this situation should have been indicated on the website. We also had a problem with the shower tray and had to take the filter our ourselves and clean months of dirt and hair. 01 March 2011 - 13:26:07

    We were very impressed with the communication prior to our arrival. The location of the flat was ideal. A short walk to groceries, the metro, shopping and restaurants. The apartment was very clean and we had all we needed. 20 August 2017 - 13:23:00

    Stayed at Carole's apartment for 6 nights. We are a family of 4 and found that the apartment suited our needs perfectly. We really enjoyed setting out on foot everyday and took advantage of the local bakeries, shops and restaurants. The apartment's furnishings were just as described. Would not hesitate to return or to recommend. 16 July 2017 - 11:54:00

    The area and especially the street, Vieille du Temple, is well-located in the Marais with a number of restaurants, bistros and cafs nearby. The market just up the street has closed, so its necessary to go about 500 meters down rue des Francs Bougeois, which becomes rue Rambuteau after a block, to find a Francprix market which has about everything you could want. There is another at the St. Paul metro stop. Its much easier to get to and closer than the Monoprix. There isnt a Tabac close by, but several within a few hundred meters. The street can be noisy in the evenings and on weekends if you arent part of the party. For baguettes and croissants, there is an eco-friendly bakery a couple of hundred meters down on this street in the direction of traffic flow. There is another, quite large, boulangerie to the right down rue du Roi de Sicile at the market place. The apartment has a spacious, charming living area with a sofa bed with a comfortable mattress. The bedroom is small, but adequate since people will normally be in there only to sleep. There is a nice TV. The only English language stations seem to be cable news outlets. Again, not much concern since I wasnt here to watch TV. The property manager, Carole, is pleasant and very helpful even when asked things which are in the extensive instruction book. You should pay attention to that, by the way. Some of the appliances have culturally-specific operational instructions which can be baffling to an American. Be aware that the washing machine takes about 3 to 4 hours to complete the shortest cycle when drying is part of it. The capacity is also quite small. The air conditioning is a portable machine with an exhaust duct which has to be placed in an open window. It does a fine job of cooling the apartment even in 90+ degree weather. Be aware that this apartment (like all the others Ive stayed in in Paris) has thin walls. Noise carries. 16 July 2017 - 06:14:00

    What can I say that has not already been said? Apartment was spotless and located on an ancient street in the heart of the Marais. Carole was very helpful before and during my stay. She also arranged transportation from and to CDG which was awesome. After a week exploring various Paris neighborhoods, I would not hesitate to return to the Marais and to this apartment. 27 April 2017 - 13:19:00

    My partner and I stayed 9 nights in March and had a great visit. The location is great and the apartment was as described..comfortable and clean....missing it already. Hope to returns...Thanks. 03 April 2017 - 10:38:00

    Absolutely loved it! Beautiful apartment in great neighborhood. Very easy rental transaction, Carole was totally organized and we had a wonderful experience! Highly recommend!! 27 February 2017 - 22:48:00

    The property is outstanding. It is a nice size for the Marais. It is well appointed and has most everything you could need for a vacation rental. When you walk out the door, you have a multitude of shopping and dining options. It is a very walkable city and took off on many walks directly from the apartment. We even walked home from the Eiffel Tower one night, which was a few miles, but fun to see the city at night. Carole has a book with all the details of the apartment as well as some practical information. She also has a bunch of travel books available. I would not hesitate to recommend the property. 30 January 2017 - 12:50:00

    I usually don't review stuff. But I feel compelled to say, this was the BEST choice for our week stay in Paris. Apartment locations are probably the number one 'feature' required and this one has it in spades. We were there over Xmas and despite it being a little nippy, it was easy to walk to everything we wanted to see. Great restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. Quiet, but not 'dead'. Apartment was well appointed, had everything we needed. Carole was a dream to deal with.....we have this on our list for 'will return one day'..... 10 January 2017 - 14:02:00

    This is a great location, plus an elevator. It is spotless and kitchen has everything you could want. The sofa bed in living room is very comfortable.You can tell Carole cares about the comfort of her guests. Decor is so tasteful. There was great bottle of wine and chocolates to greet us. Lots of towels and hot water too... 19 November 2016 - 21:17:00

    Ben and I had the good fortune to stay at this apartment for 2 1/2 weeks and it was perfect for us. The owner, Carole, has been very responsive and helpful. The location of the apartment is great. While staying here, you are in the middle of everything - with great shops and restaurants right out the front door! The photos are accurate. It is a bright apartment even in the winter months when we were there. The elevator is a treat after walking the many miles we walked every day. The apartment has everything one would need and it is kept up to date and very clean and neat. The washer/dryer came in very handy for us - it is amazingly quiet! The booklet they have prepared has information about everything one would need to know, including instructions for all the appliances in the apartment. The wifi signal is strong; we didn't watch TV but it is there. The living room is very large and it is a very comfortable space to relax. You'll have a good night's sleep in the very comfortable bed and you will enjoy the good, strong hot water in the shower! We felt very safe and secure and hated to leave at the end of our stay. We would definitely stay here again. 16 January 2018 - 16:25:00

    The location was great for us, and the apartment was clean and modern. I have stayed in units that were bigger but had not been updated in over a century and had many plumbing issues. The only issue was that the unit above had a lot of family members over one night and the noise came through the ceiling. 22 May 2017 - 19:07:00

    The apartment was in a great location and included all amenities that we needed. We arrived a day later than expected due to our flight being canceled but communication with the driver that was arranged to pick us up and take us to the house was made simple via SMS messaging. The apartment is in an excellent location in the Marais district of Paris. It was clean and included toiletries, a hairdryer, and towels. There was a small kitchen area with everything we needed to make our stay a pleasant one. We were 3 adults and felt just comfortable enough any more and it would have been a bit too tight for us. As it was very hot in Paris on our first night we used the portable air conditioning unit that was provided but it did not seem to cool things off as well as we would have liked. As such, we opted for the fan that was provided. The apartment was quiet especially in the rear facing bedroom but you could hear noise from people passing by on the street from the living room. On Saturday night one of the neighbors did have a party with loud music until early in the morning which made it difficult to sleep for our companion who was on the pull-out couch in the living room. Overall, a good valued stay in an excellent part of Paris with good communication from the hostess. 04 August 2015 - 17:37:14
