Le Marais is great neighborhood; close to public transportation (Metro Line 1 and bus route 69) that connects you to many of the great sites of Paris. The Marais is a wonderful, walkable area full of cafes, interesting shops, churches (St. Louis and St. Paul is a beauty), and museums. The apartment is close to Notre Dame and the Left Bank. A very nice apartment in a great area. Cobblestone Paris Rentals was easy to work with.
We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. it was better than staying in an airbnb. we had the independence of having a cozy house completely by ourselves in a country that we are exploring for the first time. we appreciate all the guide books by rick steves. everything we needed to know was in the books provided. the apartment was strategically located in the middle of all the must sees and must tries. the free river cruise was a memorable experience. we saw the eiffel tower lit up for a few minutes.
We loved our apartment! The convenience of the location was paramount. It was near EVERYTHING, or if not it was super close to several metro stations that got us to everything. The kitchen setup was wonderful, we utilized several appliances and the refrigerator. Having a washer/dryer was fantastic as we had another week of vacation after an extremely hot week in Paris. However, in spite of the heat our apartment was cool at night. We slept comfortably on the excellent bed everynight. We walked everywhere from this very central location, both day and night. It was near main thoroughfares (Rue de Rivoli) and many small winding streets and alleys, surrounded by interesting shops and restaurants. The rental process and getting settled in our apartment was easy and our host showed us everything in our apartment and how it was operated. The communication from Cobblestone before our arrival was also excellent, we never wondered how we were going to find the apartment or if we would be able to get in. It was smooth and trouble free. i would not hesitate to stay in this apartment or any other with Cobblestone when I go back to Paris.
I could not believe my eyes when we arrived at the apartment - it is at a beautiful pedestrian square, ringed with cafes, right in the Marais. The building is the real Marais deal, I believe several hundred years old, and I felt like a real Parisian! Even better, the apartment is recently renovated with a modern kitchen and bathroom, everything easy to use. The apartment is small but brilliantly designed so that every inch counts. There is a Murphy bed that is very easy to use (I am not strong but could easily manage it on my own). Our welcome was warm and informative! Staying here was an integral part of what made my stay in Paris so special!!
Great location, quiet and comfy. Very much enjoyed the cruise offered especially as weather was v. sunny! Will DEFINITELY be returning to this pied a terre parisien! Encore! Encore!;-)
