What our previous guests are saying about their stay:

Marais Picasso has a lot of character, charm and is very comfortable. Stays cool even when it's hot out!5    

"We really enjoyed our time here! Our greeters were so kind and helpful. They walked us through using all the appliances, electronics and left a detailed book describing how to correct/resolve/assist any issue you might have including the embassy’s phone numbers and their favorite local restaurants.
There is a grocery store next door, a middle school down the street, Supreme clothing with around the clock security next door, and a cute little park for kids around the corner across from Pink Flamingo pizza and a great crepe place - both are excellent. Easy walk to museums - Louvre, Orsay, National Archives & Notre Dame. And lots of good shopping in the area. It’s safe, clean, and they have every amenity you could ask for!!!
They also have fans in all the rooms - I was worried about not having A/C but the building is solid limestone exterior and stayed cool, we did use the fans one night (this was late May/early June). It’s a very safe building and all the tenants we met were polite, quiet and respectful.
The building also had a cleaning crew who would mop the limestone steps inside the building, mop the hallways and clean it as well. The entire building is very clean. It does have character - the limestones steps are worn after hundreds of years of use. But it is well maintained. It’s also very quiet at night in this neighborhood. Lots of families, but also good for couples and groups.
The unit has 2 king beds with en-suite full bathrooms, 2 twins that can make a king, and a pull-out couch, 1/2 bath, living room, den, kitchen, laundry room, small exercise room. It is on multiple levels that would not be good for those with toddlers or people with trouble walking.
It does have English-speaking TV channels, along with other languages & great Wi-Fi. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook at home. It has a lot of character, charm and is very comfortable. "

Top location, comfortable and well equipped home, excellent greeting and local support! Will recommend to friends and return!5    

"I can't say enough good things about our stay in this lovely apartment... It had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were comfy and the bathroom facilities were just fine for our group of 4 (and it was nice to have shampoos, conditioners, etc. for us).
Although we didn't cook any meals in the apartment, we took advantage of the coffee cups, wine glasses, and cheese plates! Our introduction to the apartment by the greeters was so detailed and thorough... Both Kimmie and Mary were adorable and made us instantly feel at home - they gave such a thorough introduction to our neighborhood and apartment - they didn't miss a thing! Although this was my 7th trip to Paris, it was the first time I have stayed in the Marais... and it is definitely my favorite! I loved the abundance of good restaurants near the apartment, and we quickly found our favorite local sources for cheese, wine, and croissants!!
I will definitely recommend Paris For Rent to all my friends traveling to Paris in the future... And I will certainly use you again myself... Perhaps as early as next spring!
Thanks for making our visit so comfortable."

Great orientation by greeters and wonderful stay5    

"We loved our apartment - it is really perfect for us! Kimmie and Mary gave us such a great orientation. We enjoyed meeting them and they left no stone unturned when explaining all the details of our apartment. We love the Eiffel Tower chocolates… so cute!
Kathy H. from Pleasant Hill, California
Apartment was wonderful, the greeter marvelous, and the process flawless5    

"We had an amazing time at Marais Picasso in Paris. The apartment was wonderful, our greeter Kimyi was the best and the process was flawless. I rate our experience as 5 stars but must note the spiral stair cases inside the apartment were tricky to navigate with luggage."
Kaye P. from Fredericksburg, Virginia
Perfect for our group!5    

"Bonjour à tous!
We enjoyed the apartment SO much! It was perfect for our group, and the location was formidable! We left both sets on keys on the little table by the door, and shut the door firmly.

Wonderful restaurant recommendations. We particularly enjoyed Chez Janou. We were paired with driver Guillaume for our night monument tour, a ride out to St. Germain-en-Laye and Normandy. What a nice guy, and so professional, with a sense of humor.
We will be recommending you to our friends, and plan to return again! Merci!"
Lori S. from Avon, CT
Paris For Rent was so easy to work with!5    

"We had a wonderful time in Paris and enjoyed the apartment and Marais neighborhood so much. Thank you for helping to facilitate our stay in Paris and for being so easy to work with." Renee and Pat M. - Omaha, Nebraska
Lovely, peaceful vacation with Mom, Child and Boyfriend!5    

No, it wasn't a romantic trip to Paris, but it was a terrific vacation nonetheless! The apartment was very comfortable, clean, even cozy on a quiet street. I loved the big windows and comfortable beds. The location was outstanding - so close to everything! The caretaker was very welcoming and responsive. The drivers were so nice, and prompt! Thank you Patrick for being so forgiving of our many pesky questions - you were very professional and easy to work with! My recommendation is do a lot of research on activities to do and purchase tickets in advance of the trip. Think outside of the box - we took a Macaroon making class! And we took a Petanque class! And we brought books and board games so we could comfortably rest in the evenings at the apartment - Actually, Patrick - that might not be a bad idea to start a community chest of such things for families! Thank you Marais Picasso for being part of an unforgettable experience!

Fantastic Family Get Away Apartment!!5    

The Marais Picasso and Paris for Rent were awesome! Everything was as advertised--when we arrived, we simply called the greeter number, left a message and voila--when we got to the apartment, there was Leo waiting for us! He showed us around the perfectly located and perfectly appointed apartment. There was plenty of space, and every convenience you could think of. We made good use of the washer/dryer and kitchen. There was plenty of space for each of us to spread out after a long, long day of walking. With grocery stores and restaurants right out the door, we never needed to use the metro or anything other than our feet. Both Pat and Leo provided lots of vegan restaurant ideas for our daughter, and we were happy with everything recommended. The neighborhood is upscale and trendy, but our street, although right in the heart of the action, was quiet. Next time we visit Paris, we will definitely use Paris for Rent and stay in the Marais!

“Great location. Highly recommended”5    

Fantastic location. Easy to walk to Notre Dame and many of the wonderful Paris locations. Decent restaurants in the area and some crazy nightlife. We were there with three teenagers and loved the apartment and the neighborhood. Emeline and company were great to work with.

“Charming apartment in the heart of Le Marais”5    

Even though the apartment layout could be a Little imposing at first, it has four levels, the warmth of the unit, the decoration and the excellent location more than compensated the first impression. We travelled with our adult sons and daughters, and Le Marais is the perfect location with its chic restaurants and shops close by. Everything was exactly as the pictures showed, very well maintained and stocked with everything we needed. The service was excellent and very responsive.

“Perfect Apartment & Location!!!”5    

Marais Picasso was perfect. A very spacious property with beautiful large windows overlooking a charming small street.The kitchen has everything necessary to cook lovely dinners with fresh food from the local market. The neighbourhood is bustling with activity with many good cafes and bistros. It was close to everything in Paris. We absolutely loved Marais Picasso!!!

“A fabulous apartment in a hip and happening neighbourhood walking distance to all Paris attractions.”5    

A magnificent apartment in the Marais area!! The location was perfect and the apartment itself was so spacious and family friendly. We could walk everywhere, to all the major attractions and gardens/parks and if we needed to take the Metro is was steps from our door. The outside terrance was a perfect place for our family of 4 to unwind and enjoy some wine and cheese after a busy day sightseeing before we headed out for dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants. Perfect neighbourhood to walk around at night, especially down to the Seine to enjoy the lights. The apartment had everything, a terrace, large kitchen and living room, great bedrooms for all and lots of amazing books on Paris in the bookshelves. We can hardly wait to come back!

“A dream family vacation living like Parisians”5    

What can I say about our Paris stay and the apartment? magical, fabulous, trip of a lifetime, etc, etc, etc. It was just a perfect place for my husband and me, our son and daughter-in-law and grandchildren. It felt like we were living like real Parisians, not as tourists. The location was so excelent. We could walk to everything. And the neighborhood would be where I would want to live if I were lucky enough to live in Paris full time. Old gracious building eith tond of character and lots of room. The support from all involved with Paris for Rent was exceptional. Pat, our agent in California, was immediately responsive by phone or email. While we were in the apartment, Samantha and our handyman helper, were so responsive to all our needs. It was great to have the place be so well supplied with basics until we could get to a store. I could go on and on, but will end here because I think you get the idea. We are in love with Paris for Rent and this apartment!! The grandchildren keep asking when we can go back.

“The perfect home base for a family adventure in Paris”5    

The Marais Picasso is the ideal place to call home while in Paris, especially if you are traveling with your teenagers. The multi-level apartment has plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen, which allowed us to have breakfast together and plan each day of sight-seeing. This was so much cozier and relaxing for our family than a hotel. Keep in mind that this is a very old 17th century building, so expect some quirkiness -- that was part of the charm for us. The neighborhood has cafes, fine dining, boutiques, museums, markets; plenty of things nearby to explore. Patrick from the Paris for Rent office was so helpful and professional, and promptly answered all of our questions as we planned our trip. Our local contact, Eleanor, was waiting for us at the apartment on the day we arrived. She showed us around the apartment to make sure we were comfortable with how everything worked. A superb experience all around!

Great location, close to trendy shops and wonderful restaurants. Most tourist attractions and museums are in walking distance and a few metro stops are close to apartment as well. Spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen, and comfortable furniture. Easy booking, check in, and check out processes. Would definitely stay here again.

"Great location, ease of use"5    

Very good communications and transition from airport to apartment and back to CDG airport. Old building suitably modernized to preserve the charm of the existing structure. Very comfortable and easy to use as a base to get out and enjoy Paris.

Beautiful apartment, fantastic location, great trip. My husband, my two children (4 and 7), a babysitter and myself found the apartment to be super comfortable, perfect for families (two full bathrooms, one half bath), and so so charming. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need, the living room is great, and the bedrooms are a good size. The building is old and charming. The neighborhood is great and busy but the street is super quiet. I wish we could buy the apartment and move to Paris!! Highly recommended for most (the interior stairs are small so the elderly might have a problem, my kids loved it though).

"Excellent apartment and great location"5    

We had five adults on this trip and the apartment was perfect for our
group. The apartment had every appliance large and small that could be
needed, in addition to a large supply of linens. The washer and dryer
allowed us to pack less and do laundry as needed. The kitchen was
spacious and very well equipped. The bedrooms were also very spacious.
I have nothing negative to say about the accomdations. Frederic was
extremely helpful even when I made the mistake of calling him after
hours. The location was wonderful, close to the St. Paul metro station
on the # 1 line. The grocery store was just around the corner and we
found many excellent cafes close by. The street was quiet at night, and
everyone we ran into in the neighborhood was pleasant. I highly
recommend Paris for Rent and Patricia's help in finding an apartment
that was perfect for our needs. I will definately return to Paris and
will use their service again.

"Bliss in the Marais"5    

Marais Picasso is an impeccable, perfectly situated apartment. Not only is it a lovely renovation in an ancient building, it is beautifully decorated and sports all the neeeded conveniences. The location in the Marais is absolutely central, but its location on a one block street ensures quiet and calm. The service privided was not only efficient, but also warm and welcoming. We could not recommend Paris for Rent or the Marais Picasso any more highly.
