About Costas

We are Alison and Costas ( English /Greek ) who have lived in Paris for the past 4 years and also in the south of France. Our youngest daughter was at school here and we love this area. Its very cosmopolitan, arty and friendly. Its where families live not just for tourists.Most importantly it is very central and completely safe to walk around and sit in the many pavement cafes and bars. For us its definitely the best part of Paris as its fashionable and keeps us young :)). The bakery opposite the flat Manon is superb as is the boucherie and a few doors down a really good wine merchant and greek deli ! Alison is a dentist and Costas an engineer. We have 5 grown up children who all now live in London so now we do a lot of travelling - hence renting out our apartment when we are away. We totally renovated the apartment when we came here as it is our home so everything is really good quality and chosen with love and care.

Costas purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Costas chose Enfants-Rouges

Location location location ! We looked at many but decided it had to be this particular area and properties this size don't come up that often. We knocked out walls to provide a huge living space with integral kitchen as when I cook I want to be part of things ! The kitchen is well stocked and extremely efficient with induction hob and rise and fall extractor. The apartment is on a corner so it has massive windows so there is a fantastic feeling of space and light. The bedrooms are at opposite corners of the apartment providing privacy and peace. Painted throughout in Farrow and Ball and furnished from Blanc d'Ivoire and Flammant it is contemporary and supremely comfortable. Everyone comments on the interior design as its stylish and quirky. All bedlinen is 100% high quality cotton and towels likewise. Quilts for cooler months are goose down. The study which doubles as the third bedroom has an enormous biblioteque with books, dvds, travel guides a few toys for visiting little ones.

What makes this apartment unique

We feel that our apartment is a classic example of the dream of Parisian living. It is in the best area and everyone comments how they instantly feel at home in luxurious and friendly surroundings- its a treat !

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was true to photos. Our taxi driver said that some people think they are renting a place in Marais but yours actually is! Very spacious and clean. Lovely shops right out your door. Close metro stop. It was fun to escape the tourists after a day of sightseeing and return here. Owners are very responsive.

Very nice apartment, and well located.

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice apartment in a good, residential location. We had 5 adults, three of which are in the mid to late 20s. The two bedrooms worked fine

for four of us, and my eldest son stayed in the roll out bed in the library. The two bathrooms worked fine for our group. This is a second floor unit with also a small elevator available.

Within 1-2 blocks of the apartment you can find multiple boucheries, patisseries, boulangeries, fromageries, (working on my French...mostly food related) food stores, wine shops and more. It's convenient to the Metro which made getting around a bit easier after a couple of 8-10 mile walking days. The Marche des Enfants Rouges outdoor market is nearby, and we also visited a nice market by the Place de Bastille (may be limited to Sat/Sun). Picasso museum is nearby, and interesting stores, cafes, etc. in the area. From the Arch de Triomphe it ran us about 12-14 Euros for a cab ride back in the evening when we couldn't walk any more. Never had a bad meal in Paris, including a meal at a cafe down the street. Also enjoyed a Seine dinner cruise on the Bateau le Calife...a smaller boat and an excellent meal.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this as a surprise for my parents and sister. It was their first time to Paris and I wanted it to be super special, and it was! We simply loved our stay and would certainly book it again.

Gorgeous, comfortable apartment in a vibrant Marais neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 adults (one couple, plus 3 friends) who live in different countries who stayed in this beautiful apartment as part of a reunion trip to Paris. The apartment is beautifully furnished with gorgeous and interesting pieces, is large, light and comfortable and smack in the middle of a bustling Parisien neighbourhood. Even if you didn't want to go out, you could look outside the windows and see people going in and out of the cheese and wine shops, various bakeries and little bars and restaurants. If you did go out, you were a stone's throw away from places to shop, eat or have a coffee or drink. Walking distance to many of Paris' sights, including the Picasso Museum and Notre Dame.

The apartment is well set-up with two bathrooms, a washer/dryer, large kitchen (not that we cooked while we were there), good internet ..... . I would happily stay there again!
