Our beautiful apartment (" Le Pied-à-Terre") has just been completely renovated, combining period features with all modern conveniences. The high ceilings with the old, exposed wooden beams, the wooden floors and the black and white marble in the bathrooms make it truly magical, giving you a true Parisian feeling.

It is located between two courtyards, on the second floor of an 17th century house in the heart of the Marais, making it very quiet and even allowing you to sleep with open windows.

The apartment’s layout and its size (75 square meter/800 square foot) will provide you with ample space to relax and to enjoy your own privacy. With its two bedrooms it sleeps 4 guests comfortably. One bedroom has a four poster, king size bed, whilst the other has 2 single beds with unique bed-stands (all mattresses are new) . The finest Egyptian cotton linen has been chosen for your comfort and pleasure. Both have their own bathrooms (one en-suite), equipped with 1940’s style fittings, black and white Carrara marble floors and Parisian Metro tiles. There is also a separate toilet. High quality face, hand and bath towels are provided. Each bedroom has got a powerful silent Dyson (AM08) air cooler.

The sitting room is very large and has a mock fire place with many candles, antiques, modern art, leather chairs and a designer sofa, dim-able lights – a perfect place to relax before or after exploring Paris. As a hobby cook, Stephan designed and equipped the “chef’s kitchen” to enable you to cook a wonderful meal. It has a lovely, large white Carrara marble work area and faces the dining area which has a stunning 19th century wooden table which can sit up to six guests. A large Freud retro style fan in the dining area is at your disposal

Pied-à-Terre has central heating ithat can be regulated in each room individually, including the bathrooms; free high speed wifi; flat screen TV, Netflix, Apple TV, DVD player, DVD library, books, BOSE docking station, washer drier, microwave, induction hob, traditional oven, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster and dishwasher You can make free landline phone calls to over 150 countries.

The closest Metro station is Arts-et-Metiers 5 minutes away from Pied-a-Terre and buses and Velibs (bicycles that can be rented daily or weekly and are a great way to explore Paris) are close by. However, given Le Pied-à-Terre’s central location you will most likely explore Paris on foot. The airports and the main train stations can easily be reached by public transport or by taxi and you will receive all information you need when you book the apartment.

If you would like to come with a car, the nearest parking is located less than 150 meters from the flat and is called: “Parking Temple Alizés”. Should you wish to book in advance, you get discounts using this website – http://www.parkingsdeparis.com/

Please note that we also have a home in Vence and in Antibes so don’t hesitate to enquire about these properties too.

The apartment is located in the heart of the Marais, the centre of gay life and the most vibrant arrondissement of Paris, in walking distance from many attractions like the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum, Place de Voges and even Notre Dame. The neighbourhood boosts many nice restaurants/brasseries, organic stores, patisseries and the flat is only 5-10 minutes walk away from the famous covered food market “Les Enfants Rouges” were you can buy organic fruit and vegetables, lovely fish and great French cheese.
