TO VISIT NEARBY
- RUE DE BRETAGNE: Famous for its quaint atmosphere, this street is appreciated for its numerous cafes, bars and terraced restaurants.
- MUSÉE PICASSO AND CARNAVALET: The museum with a collection of Picasso’s works and a museum dedicated to the history of the city. 2 nice attractions to take your time at.
- MARCHÉ DES ENFANTS ROUGES: This is the oldest covered market in Paris dating back to 1612 and completely renovated in 2002. A small number of stands with traditional market products will entice you in.
- HÔTEL DE VILLE: You can reach this magnificent building in 15 mins by foot. It is the head of the municipal council but it is a building with a turbulent past; it’s square used to be the site for guillotine executions. Nowadays the fabulous square is mainly where events are organised by the municipality; ice rinks and merry-go-rounds in winter, huge TV screens for large sports events, puppet show.
- PLACE DES VOSGES: The district of Marais is renowned for its gay community and is famous for being a very trendy and lively district, it gives the impression of a being in a «small village» with its labyrinth of streets full of locals, restaurants and night clubs frequented by the most fashionable! In addition, it houses more than 20 important museums, like the Picasso. But the major interest of the Marais is without doubt its «Place de Vosges», originally called «La Place Royale» and is perfect in its symmetry of architecture and gardens.
Giselle C. (Etats-Unis) - June 2013
satisfied with the place, which looks exactly as in the pictures. We
were welcomed by the owner, Éliane, who was very friendly and helpful
throughout the whole stay. She made a great effort in making us feel at
home and she i.a. helped us find a nice flee market.
The apartment is clean, the decoration is very comfortable and the
equipment fully responded our needs for the stay.
The area was perfect for us; not a lot of tourists, 15 min walk from the
metro and with a lot of nice cafés and restaurants nearby.
We would absolutely recommend the apartment to friends and family.

clean, great location, close to Metro station, non-hotel feel with
access to local Parisian fare. Nadia was quick to respond and answered
all of my questions. With Eliane's constant communication we were able
to navigate transportation with ease from the airport. Eliane greeted us
and was very gracious even upon our departure. I would definitely stay
