“Great Location in the Marais”
Reviewed June 19, 2015
We had a wonderful week in this apartment. The only concern we had before arriving was the single toilet, but we had four adults in the apartment for part of our time, and it was never an issue. The two shower/bath rooms are good sized, modern and comfortable. The apartment is light and airy, spacious and dead quiet, but for us the best part was the location. The block is very peaceful and non-touristy and has a small fruit stand, a patisserie and an Italian restaurant, but just around the corner on the bustling rue de Bretagne are a large and delectable fruit stand (Jardin des Delices), the Marche des Enfants Rouge (amazing choices for lunch), a nice French book store, a very good couscous restaurant called Chez Omar and an outpost of J-P Hevin, one of the greatest of Parisian chocolatiers (if nothing else, go to look at the high heeled shoe in white chocolate in the window). The apartment is an easy walk to the busier parts of the Marais (Picasso Museum, Place des Vosges, rue des Rosiers) as well as the National Archives down the street which has a beautiful inner courtyard open to the public. I also want to recommend the concierge services that Paris for Rent offers for a modest fee. Nadine had some great restaurant recommendations for us and promptly made reservations for us both at those and at other restaurants we specifically asked for, which made life much easier. We also used the optional airport pick-up service, which worked perfectly.
