The space

Cute, modern apartment located right in the midst of the lively, gay district of Le Marais, in the heart of Paris (rue Vieille du Temple, right between Hotel de Ville and Saint Paul). Nice building, 5th floor, no elevator. Just climb the stairs and enter a spacious studio apartment, ideal for 2 guests.

With 40 sq. meters, this Parisian appartment has a lovely, modern living room, and 5 floor-length windows that ensure you get the best of the summer light, from sun rise to sun down. Adjacent to the living room is a fully equipped kitchen. The double bedroom has wooden paneling in the spirit of a ship's cabin. The living room also offers another sleeping area : the sofa's sides can be pushed down, so it converts into a one-person bed. Modern parquet floor. A balcony runs around the whole apartment - perfect for eating breakfast or drinking your 6pm apéritif. Beautiful bathroom with shower.

Le Marais used to be the neighborhood of Parisian craftsmen and the nobility. From here, you can stroll to Pl-ace des Vosges, the Cirque d'Hiver, Musée Carnavalet, Centre Pompidou, the Jewish quarter, Hôtel de Ville, the rue de Rivoli, the Seine embankments, Notre Dame Cathedral. A 3 or 4-minute walk from either Saint Paul or Hôtel de Ville métro stations, and not even 10 minutes by foot to Central métro and train station Châtelet-les-Halles.

This part of The Marais district is full of shops, restaurants, and the supermarket just literally round the corner opens until quarter to midnight (a rarity in Paris). Have Italian icecream at Pozzetto (the best in Paris), visit the Karl Lagerfeld store, buy and customize your socks at Tabio, have a lovely French breakfast at Pick Clop's, try Corsican cuisine at L'Ulivo, discover a "tatin" sweet tomato pie at Les Philosophes, or (in case you left your computer at home) check your mail at the local cybercafé, all in a 30-meter radius !!! And there's more, plenty more nearby (supermarkets, open air market, the post office, the Mairie and its fantastic temporary exhibitions...)

The English pubs and gay Marais establishments are two or three blocks away... so noise is NOT an issue at all. Plus, the double glazing on the windows is just excellent. Even during the infamous Nuit de la Musique, you can sleep like a baby.

I accept smokers, even though I've never smoked myself. Would you mind smoking on the balcony, though ?

I provide fresh linen, but feel free to bring your own if you'd rather. Just let me know.

Yeah, I'm pretty communicative ;-) Don't hesitate to drop a line or even phone if you have any question.

Everything

Line 1 of the métro is just perfect. Closest stations are Hôtel de Ville and Saint Paul.

The Apartment is tastefully decorated and spacious, however you need to be aware that it has no air conditioning. Many Parisian apartments do not have air conditioning, that is true, however, this apartment faces the sun all day so it is hot and it is impossible to sleep with the…

A fabulous location right in the heart of the Marais! Everything was super convenient from grocery to trains to coffee. I loved the outdoor balcony for morning coffee and evening wine. I would stay here again for sure!

We really enjoyed staying at Laurent's place in the Marais. The location was top notch, surrounded by shops, restaurants, and bars, and within walking distance of tons of sights and some metro stops. The apartment itself was super clean and nice and resembled the photos better th…

Laurent's home was so beautiful and welcoming. The level of detail that went into his home decor was lovely. My favorite space was the sleep alcove, but I especially loved being surrounded by all the books! The centrally located studio apartment had everything my friend and I nee…

Response from Laurent:
Thanks to Gigi and her friend for being great guests and great communicators. It was lovely having you and thank you too for your constructive comment about the European 5th floor being the US 6th and how I could have explained better where the door is :-) I hadn't thought of that ! Also thanks for leaving the apartment in great conditions. I'm glad you had a nice stay.

Laurent's apartment was fabulous. Tastefully designed and in a great, convenient location. The small balcony was an added bonus that we used in the evenings and early mornings for breakfasts. The flights of stairs are a challenge but manageable. We did not have anyone to greet us…
