Great Parisian Vacation Rental in Marais/ Bastille
Exclusive boutique flat with all modern comforts (inc. Wifi, washer/dryer) at just 5 min. walk from historic Bastille & fashionable Marais full of trendy boutiques, restaurants & bars.
Central, yet calm.
Ideal for 1-3 people, to relax at a cozy home, while enjoying their holidays in Paris.
High speed internet over Wifi, TV with French & international channels, DVD, FREE phone calls, washer/dryer, fully-equipped kitchen, designer furniture & luxurious bathroom. Mobile air-conditioning unit on wheels available against supplement (see below).
In this recently refurbished modern condo, you can enjoy all the comforts of contemporary urban living, yet within the charm of a historic Parisian neighborhood. The Bastille square that once was the stage of the French revolution, today houses the Paris Opera, and in the surrounding streets you can find an endless choice of cafés, bars, and restaurants.
Equally close, just at five minutes' walk, you'll be at the most beautiful square of Paris, la Place des Vosges, from early 17th century, and next to it, the charming Hôtel de Sully. This is where the Marais starts, nowadays one of the trendiest districts in Paris, full of original fashion boutiques, art galleries, and of course, restaurants and bars – many of them gay.
When back at your Parisian home, you'll appreciate its stylish parquet floors and designer furniture with glass tables featuring a painter's palette, as well as the nice views through the windows facing a bright, quiet garden. As a matter of fact, you can easily sleep with your windows open, despite being in the center of Paris. Your bedroom has a comfortable double bed, which, thanks to an ingenious mechanism, can easily be stowed in less than a minute to a decorative library, giving you more space during the day. The living room sofa can also be quickly converted into another bed for one (or two) persons.
To further relax, indulge yourself in the luxury of a spacious designer bathroom with two sinks, hair dryer, large bathtub, with both a rain and a hand-held shower.
During your stay, you can live and entertain your friends like a Parisian master chef in a fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the preparation and serving utensils you may need. Just at your doorsteps you'll find a couple of supermarkets, but you should definitely not miss a true Parisian market on Thursday and Sunday mornings, with the freshest produce around: vegetables, fruit, seafood, poultry and meat, and of course, French baguettes.
Spacious walk-in closet with built in storage for hanging clothes, suitcases, shoes, etc.
The building has a concierge and a garage with direct elevator access.
Lively, yet safe neighborhood with many shops, restaurants and bars.
Ideal for singles or couples who appreciate contemporary design in central Paris. Well maintained and quiet residential building. Not suitable for families with young children under 10 years, due to many fragile glass surfaces and sharp edges of the furnishings.
On your arrival, you'll be greeted by an English-speaking person who can explain you, how everything works in the apartment. A detailed House Manual gives you further instructions on all appliances, as well as nearby shopping and my favourite restaurants.
A local mobile phone can be rented for your convenience during your stay.
Private airport transfers can also be arranged to pick you up on your arrival at the airport.TripAdvisor property ID 3437049...Read more

Additional Location Information
We chose this flat because of its ideal location, with easy access to the most pleasant areas in Paris. Furthermore, it allows all the modern comforts of contemporary urban living, something that one appreciates after having lived previously in a historical building.
Although most visitors initially head to Le Marais for its historic attractions, don’t be surprised if you end up spending more time visiting its art galleries and trendy fashion boutiques. Check also some of the newest boutiques at the Boulevard Beaumarchais, including the famous Merci.
As everywhere in Paris, you shouldn’t miss the Parisians’ most favourite pastime: people-watching on a terrace of a café, while sipping your café crème, or perhaps a glass of wine. You’ll be amazed by all the different styles you see going by, until you’ll probably adopt your very own Parisian style, as well.
Having walked through the Marais, you’ll reach the famous Centre Pompidou Art Museum. Its striking architecture still continues to appal many, but inside, you’ll find one of world’s most impressive collections of contemporary arts. If you’re into more traditional art, be sure not to miss the Musée d’Orsay for its impressionists, and of course the Louvre with its magnificent masterpieces. Both of these, as well as many other sites (e.g. Eiffel Tower) are easily accessible by bus 69, with a stop right at the exit of the apartment.
If you’re an opera fan, you should definitely visit the Paris Opéra at the Place de la Bastille, next to the apartment. Tickets can easily be purchased on-line, but be early!

“This is a fantastic place to stay, convenient, clean, perfect.”

really enjoyed my stay in this perfectly appointed apartment. Everything is well maintained and comfortably sized. The bathroom feels like a spa. The neighborhood is very close to the sites but remains quiet and off the main streets.
