Description of the Paris vacation apartment rental
This recently renovated ground-floor studio in the heart of the Marais looks onto a lovely 18th-century stone courtyard and is very quiet, light and airy. It is comfortablly furnished and fully equipped. You have your choice of dozens of fantastic restaurants within minutes of the studio, as well as open markets, an abundance of shops, and some of the best museums in the city. (See fuller description of area below.)
Area Information
32 rue St. Paul is located in the heart of le Marais (the 4th arrondissement), what many consider the most beautiful and historic neighborhood in Paris. Most of the buildings in the Marais date from the 17th and 18th centuries, and the narrow streets, beautiful squares, and stunning architecture provide for hours of delightful rambling and exploration. We have three metros close by: St. Paul, Pont Marie and Bastille. The studio is within easy walking distance of the Place de Vosges, the Bastille, the river Seine, Ile St.-Louis, Notre Dame, the new Paris Opera House (at Bastille), theaters, cinema, open markets and shopping of every sort (be sure to pop into the charming Village St. Paul, right across the street, with its many antique shops and cobble-stoned courtyards). You ''''''ll find a multitude of museums in the immediate vicinity: cf. especially the world-renowned Picasso Museum, the Musée Cognacq-Jay, where you not only get wonderful artworks but an 18th-century mansion, the Maison Internationale de la photographie, the Musée Victor Hugo at the Place de Vosges, the Musée Carnavalet, the latter two of which now have the added bonus of being free! Just across rue St. Antoine, the Hotel de Sully nearly always has first-rate exhibits ''''''definitely worth checking out. The Pompidou Center is also within walking distance, with its excellent Museum of Modern Art, its many permanent and special exhibits, and fabulous views.

A wonderful, charming studio in my favorite area of Paris, very close to wonderful restaurants, Notre Dame, Place de Voges, Marais museums and shopping, the metro, etc. You can walk to 80% of what you want to see in Paris from here. The owners are incredibly accommodating, responsive and reliable, and the very well maintained studio is well-equipped with everything from cookbooks to guides to cookware, wi fi, etc. It's both a gem and a true bargain. It's perfect for two people, and the owners provide excellent recommendations for local dining and sightseeing. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

A wonderful place

March 19, 2013

The apartment in the Marais was wonderful. Small, charming and so so centrally located. Have been recommending this place to friends. The place was easy to find and access. The area was quiet, though one day when we were late to leave we were greeted with a chorus of schoolchildren at play. Although small it has all the amenities that we could want and it is close to the Monoprix for any possible supplies. We were able to walk to most everything that we wanted to visit. And even more telling we would stay there again!

Perfect Accomodation in the Marais

December 29, 2012

We have stayed in several apartments in the Paris i and can't say enough about this charming apartment. It is perfect for a couple who want the perfect location in the Marais.We found that it was equipped with everything one needs from cooking utensils to umbrellas to guide books and anything else you might need to make your stay very comfortable. We liked being on the ground floor in a very safe building. The rent was reasonable and the owners were very accomodating. We definitely would go back and highly recommend this apartment.

parisian perfection

I never could never have imagined such a perfect little abode to live in while in the city of lights...The view could not have been better and the location enabled me to walk everywhere I wanted to even as far as the Bastille. The apartment was equipped with all the amenities that I needed. Merci Alexis!

Perfect Marais Getaway

March 19, 2012

This studio is a perfect place to stay for you and one other person. I have stayed here twice now with my daughter. It's perfectly located, a three minute walk to the St. Paul Metro station, on perhaps the most useful Metro line in Paris (Louvre, Hotel de Ville Champs Elysees). Also within three minutes are all the incredible restaurants, shops and galleries of the Marais. The apartment itself is small, but has everything one needs, including a complete and very well-stocked kitchen and a very comfortable bed. While it's on the first floor, it's not at all noisy as the apartment looks out onto an interior courtyard. Right down the street are an English language bookstore, the Museum of Magic, and about two minutes away, the Seine and then Ile St. Louis. We love this apartment and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Paris.

The original bijou apartment?

May 17, 2010

This studio apartment in the heart of Paris is one of the most compact you will come across, yet it has everything you need for a comfortable and convenient stay, ingeniously fitted into its small space. Its position is wonderful too: you can walk to many of the main attractions such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the islands, and it is only a short walk to either the St-Paul or the Pont Marie Metro station if you want to go further afield. The immediate neighbourhood is full of cafés, restaurants, and food shops as well as quirky antique shops and artists' studios in the Village St-Paul. There are also markets within a few minutes' walk - I enjoyed visiting the one at Bastille. If you want to eat out, there is almost too much choice - but you can save a lot by shopping in the nearby supermarket and health food shop and cooking for yourself. Surely this must be the most convenient pied-a-terre in Paris, a bijou of bijoux. Add to that the friendly and helpful owners, and you have the recipe for a great stay!

Lovely studio in the heart of Paris

May 8, 2009

This is the third or fourth time we have stayed in this lovely studio appartment in the heart of the Marais. Tastefully furnished, well-equipped, it is an ideal location from which to explore the historic centre of Paris. The local 'quartier' is bustling with life, with plenty of restaurants, take-outs, wine-bars and cafes on your doorstep. And don't miss the charming little 'Village' de St. Paul, with its lovely little antique shops. Highly recommended.

Charming Studio - Great Neighborhood

May 4, 2009

This apartment is a charming studio in a FANTASTIC neighborhood. Many restaurant, patisseries, and boulangeries only a 1-5 minute walk away. Access to the most useful metro line at the St. Paul station, only a 2 minute walk. The apartment is small, but well equipped. It's a peaceful island. Highly recommended.

Just what I was looking for

May 8, 2008

I found this apartment to be just perfect for my needs and very fairly priced. The neighborhood is genuine and pleasant- close to the tourist attractions but far enough away to escape. The owner was surprisingly helpful and sincerely interested in making my stay easy and comfortable. I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again.
