Overview

About the property

FULLY RENOVATED 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; quiet and fully equipped kitchen

This beautiful apartment (" Le Pied-à-Terre") has just been completely renovated (April 2015), 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. Ideally suited for two couples or a family with children, the two bedrooms sleep 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 avant-garde 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. The chef's kitchen has been designed and equipped 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 is at your disposal.

Naturally Pied-à-Terre has modern independent heating in each room, 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.

This property is located in the heart of the Marais, 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.

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. A manager will welcome you, show you around the property, give you the keys and provide you with valuable tips. He is of course available in case of emergency or for any questions you may have.

For guests who 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/

About Ivan

As a child, I lived in Versailles and Paris was the city of my dreams. When I finally moved to Paris I loved exploring and savouring this wonderful and vibrant city. I always wanted to own a traditional Parisian apartment in the city centre.

My dream came true in 2004 when I purchased this property whilst living in London. I enjoyed visiting Paris regularly and staying in my apartment.

I decided to renovate the property totally and to give other people the chance to share my passion for this incredible city. Having said that, I love the apartment so much that I often visit and stay in it myself.

Ivan purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Ivan chose 3rd Le Marais

The combination of 17th century Parisian charm, antique furniture, exposed beams, all modern comforts, the location, right in the heart of the Marais ,and the fact that it is incredibly quiet make the apartment unique.

The kitchen has been designed an fitted to satisfy any hobby cook and the proximity to food markets and typically French food stores make it very easy to prepare lovely meals.

Being in walking distant from so many major tourist sites and being surrounded by wonderful places where one can eat and drink without having to use public transport makes it a perfect base for a short visit or a long stay.

The manager, who lives in the same building, will take good care of you ensuring that you receive the best customer service and, as a local, he can give you wonderful recommendations.

What makes this apartment unique

Totally refurbished; incredibly quiet - sleep with your windows open in the summer! Central location

Well-equipped apartment in convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The property was very well-equipped and comfortable. Nice TV and iPod system available for music, etc. The resident host was very responsive to our needs, as was the non-resident owner. The toilet for the larger bedroom is outside the room. The twin bedroom is smallish and there is not much room for luggage, but has a complete bath with great shower. Walking distance to many attractions, restaurants, grocery stores, and just a couple of blocks from the Metro. Does require climbing two flights of stairs. Would stay again.

Lovely Apartment in Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Paris! Ivan is a wonderful host and was very responsive and engaged to make sure that our experience was everything we hoped it would be. We appreciated the thoughtful welcome basket and coffee. Pied A Terre was very comfortable for four adults and contained all the amenities we needed. The apartment is centrally located within walking distance of the Metro, museums and historic sites. It was also close to shopping and quality restaurants. We had a great experience and would gladly stay in Ivan's apartment the next time we visit Paris.

Charming Parisian apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of HomeAway apartments and I think we have set the bar very high. The apartment was really nicely appointed, the linens of high quality (no bobbly sheets which I had heard about on short lets) and comfortable furniture. In the three days we were there, we had to put the heating on once which was really efficient and we soon turned it down again.

The apartment is situated very centrally so much so that we did not once take the Metro and yet we went to St. Germain, Opera, Bastille, even Montparnasse.

The arrival instructions were informative and helpful as was Isaure who met me. (I hope I've spelt that correctly!)

To be recommended.

Magnifique! Magnifique! Magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

Ivan's flat was most harming and most amazing, we can not say enough good things about it.It is even more beautiful than in the pictures. My husband and I recently stayed there with my two step-daughters (28 & 30). There was more than enough room for the four of us to spread out and relax after enjoying a day in Paris. Every detail is thought out from the charming kitchen to the type of bed linens and towels to the amazing collection of dvd's and TinTin books. We felt instantly comfortable and greatly all the flat has to offer. The space was meticulously cleaned and Thierry was most helpful upon our arrival and throughout our stay.. The four of us would highly recommend a stay here. The location is ideal and we could easily take the metro or walk to anywhere our heart's desired. It was tres magnifique!

Lovely, well appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

Recently we had the privilege of staying in Ivan's lovely apartment. It was represented well by the pictures on line. The property is wonderfully decorated, successfully blending the charms of an ancient building with its exposed beams with the modernity of a fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms. The beds are comfy and linens and towels plentiful and of high quality. We were traveling with our teenage grandsons so it was nice to have two completely separate bathrooms. During our stay we had a couple of really hot days and the Dyson air coolers did a good job of keeping the temperatures reasonable along with the cross ventilation. Since the apartment is on an inner courtyard it was very quiet. It was our first stay in the arrondissement and we really enjoyed it. Nearby was a great butcher , a new Italian traitor, a Carrefour grocery as well as a metro stop just around the corner. There is also a nice selection of restaurants in the area and you can easily walk to the Beaubourg Museum.
