Tournelles Apartment (4th - Le Marais)
Paris Le Marais
Sleeps: 2/4 Metro: Bastille 5 minutes
The Marais needs no introduction these days! Much of the area dates from the 16th and 17th centuries, featuring narrow streets, fine architecture, irresistible boutiques, antique shops, restaurants, cafés. Strict building laws protect its authenticity. This is where Parisians chose to wander on weekends! The centerpiece is, of course, the Place des Vosges, the purest example of 17thC architecture, its arcaded façade set around a central park with trees and benches - great for a picnic lunch! Easy walking distance to the Picasso and Carnavalet Museums, Bastille Opera, Ile St Louis, Notre Dame, Ile de la Cité and much more! Nearby on the rue St Antoine is a wonderful selection of specialist food shops (baker, deli, cheese, fish, wine ...) in the very best French tradition !
Narrow stairs lead to this 2nd floor** apartment in a typical old Marais building - overlooking a narrow cobbled courtyard with loads of character, and protected from street noises. A short walk from the Place de Vosges, pavement cafés and all the boutiques, restaurants so characteristic of the Marais. A truly sweet apartment (some 500 sq ft) recently entirely renovated and furnished to a good standard while retaining character and charm! All rooms are off the small entrance hall. Pretty living room with old beams, comfortable double sofabed, dining furniture, TV. Small bedroom with twin beds (can make wide double) overlooking the cobbled courtyard. Well equipped eat-in kitchen. Washing machine, dishwasher. Bathroom with tub and shower attachment. Separate WC. Electric radiators. Initial linen provided. Local line telephone.
