Perks for the Parents

This bohemian chic apartment in an former leather workshop, 5 minutes’ walk from Le Marais, is a dream pick for those who love to travel, and sleeps up to 5. Decorated with exotic artwork and sculptures and with a bedroom evoking the style of a traveling caravan, it’s worldly, interesting and unique. Best of all, for this part of central Paris, it also has a small outdoor space in the shape of a shaded deck with a seating area, ideal for a lazy lunch. It’s in a great location, close to restaurants, cafés and boutiques of Le Marais and is well connected via metro with the rest of the city, making it perfect for urban explorers. The rooms all have charpoy beds and housekeeping is included in the rate.

Why Kids Love it

DVDs and toys available for kids; there is no high chair or crib. Babycare rental firms in the city may be able to provide equipment for younger children. The charpoy beds add a dash of adventure to bedtime. Two bikes for adults and 1 for children are also available to borrow, and the location is great for easy cycling in the city. The residence is walking distance to a lot of lovely family-friendly attractions: Bastille, Place de la République, Canal Saint Martin and the pedestrian and cycle path from Place de la Bastille. Grocery stores and fresh produce stalls are 5-10 minutes’ walk away, with a market nearby 4 days a week and a municipal swimming pool nearby.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 nights apart from June, when the minimum is 10 nights. The residence is on the 2nd floor with no elevator and some steep stairs leading up to it. It is in a secure building with coded doors and keyed entry. It is very quiet at night, facing an interior courtyard and on a quiet street. WiFi throughout; iMac provided for guest use FYI! The owners have a dog and a cat. The dog will be boarded during your visit; the cat is friendly and easy to look after. Housekeeping (4 hours every 3 days) included in rate; ironing can be arranged.

About the Location

The residence is in a wonderful area of Paris, walking distance from Le Marais and with bars, cafes and shops on the street outside, yet far from touristy. It is in the 3rd arrondissement; Richard Lenoir, Saint-Ambroise and Saint Sébastien-Froissart are the closest metro stations. It is 30 minutes from Charles de Gaulle airport by car/taxi and 10 minutes from the Gare du Nord for Eurostar. There is no need for car hire: it is well located for public transport between Bastille and République.

Accommodation Details

This 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment includes a master bedroom with double bed, 2 children’s bedrooms, 1 with a 110cm charpoy bed and 1 with a large single charpoy bed (120cm). An office upstairs can also sleep 1 person on a single charpoy bed (90cm). There is a contemporary living space with wooden floors, dining table and etched glass doors leading to a snug lounge with sofa and bookcases. The kitchen has a large family dining table. The 2 bathrooms include 1 with a shower and an ensuite bathroom for the master bedroom with a bath and shower. There is a small outdoor deck shaded by shrubs and bamboo with a dining/relaxing area and rooftop views.

Style Notes

Modern bohemian. With unique design and artwork, books to browse and a paper-mâché sculpture of a polar bear in the hall, this apartment is a real one-off. The charpoy beds make staying here an exotic adventure, while wallpaper details, exposed beams and modern touches create joyful corners throughout. We love the beautiful details and boho style: fairy lights, art, Buddha busts and carvings from around the world.

Le Marais, The 3rd arrondissement

Bohemian and bourgeois

This historic district of Paris is a honeypot for the bobo generation - bohemian and bourgeois - with narrow streets, elegant buildings and bustling boutiques. It’s a fabulous place to stay in the city with kids, near to museums and galleries along with playgrounds and public squares.
