Perks for the Parents

This classic Parisian apartment in the north of the Marais is well set up for families, close to a local playground and walking distance from the Centre Pompidou. There is a compact but well equipped kitchen, a bright living space and a bathroom with bathtub. It is ideal for a living-like-a-local experience in the city.

Why Kids Love it

The children's room has plenty of toys that your children would love. It has a bunkbed and a travel crib can be added if needed. The local playground is a very short walk from the apartment. The neighborhood has a good number of family-friendly restaurants and is well connected by bus and Metro. The Centre Pompidou is a 15-minute walk away.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The apartment is only available for weekends (Friday-Monday) or during vacation periods. The apartment is on the second floor with no elevator. Doors to the balcony can be locked; young children must be supervised around the window areas. Car rental not recommended due to restricted parking and reliable public transit in the city.

About the Location

The apartment is in the 3rd arrondissement to the north of the Marais. The subway is down the street and there are plenty of local buses. It is an easy walk to the Centre Pompidou or le Marais. Charles de Gaulle airport is a 45-minute drive while the Gare du Nord for Eurostar is a 10-minute drive away.

Style Notes

Modern Paris. This beautiful designer apartment has modern fixtures and fittings blended with traditional Parisian touches, including a wooden floor, mirrors and mouldings on the ceiling. We love the sofa by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, the retro children’s desk and the clean spaces throughout.

We stayed at Elise's apartment with our family of five and had an amazing stay! The apartment's location is in a quiet side street with lots of amenities, metro stops and shops around the corner. She provided us with her children's scooters which made exploring the city lots of fun for our children and we managed to cover a large area by foot. Walking from the apartment to Ile de cite is little over 2 kilometers and will take you through the Marais which is a fantastic experience. You can take a multitude of metro lines back to the apartment as it is close to two metro stops. Our son loved the toys (Playmobil and Lego) that are available at the apartment and even asked us to prolong the stay as he was not done playing with all of the toys. In short, great! I can recommend it to anybody looking for a quiet apartment close with easy access to tourist attractions and which allows you to have a relaxing retreat when sight seeing has worn you out. Thank you Elise!

Arts et Métiers, The 3rd arrondissement

Innovative, energetic and exciting

Literally meaning Arts and Crafts, Arts et Métiers is in the northern Marais district and is a lively, interesting part of the city. It is known for its Chinatown and the National Library of France. The district boasts airy Haussmannian streets, in sharp contrast to the density of nearby Les Halles or Châtelet.
