Perks for the Parents

This artsy 3-bedroom loft apartment in the Marais is calm, cozy and comfortable, and is in a great location, steps from Place des Vosges. The living area is very spacious with enough room to suit all the family. Books, DVD players, Apple TV and games are in every bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen for family (juicer, coffee machine and food processor). The living room has space to play. The host leaves a guide with addresses and activities for children.

Why Kids Love it

There is room to play and relax and the host provides toys, DVDs including cartoons and family movies, plus a DVD player and Apple TV in every bedroom. The apartment suits all ages, but note there is not a high chair. It is an easy walk to Paris’ most popular sights, and there are parks with playgrounds close by, including one at Place des Vosges with sand boxes, slides and a jungle gym surrounded by elegant royal buildings.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The apartment is on the third floor. There is a staircase (ungated) in the apartment. Cleaning and laundry during your stay can be arranged on request. It is possible to rent only part of the apartment (2 bedrooms for instance) on request. Also downstairs there an option to rent another apartement for 5 people. This flat can be rented separately or together. Price upon request. Please consult with the host prior to booking. Car rental not necessary: this area is well connected by public transport and parking (and driving) in central Paris can be tricky.

About the Location

The residence is in the Marais district in the fourth arrondissement of central Paris. It is a great location, 50m from Place des Vosges in a safe area. It is a fashionable quarter with lots of restaurants and shops around. There are several subways and bus stops, making it easy to visit the rest of Paris, and there are playgrounds in local squares and family-friendly museums to visit. The Gare du Nord for Eurostar is 20 minutes away while Charles du Gaulle Airport is a 25-minute drive away.

Accommodation Details

This third floor family apartment has a large open living room with dining table for 8, an open eat-in kitchen with table for 4 and 3 separate bedrooms, on different levels, offering privacy for all. One has a queensize bed, one has 2 single beds, and the other has a twin bed. There are 2 sofa beds in the lounge to sleep another 1 or 2. There are 2 bathrooms one with shower, and one with a bathtub.

Style Notes

Parisian charm. This loft-style apartment has plenty of charm, with old beams and a cathedral ceiling in the living room stretching up 5m and giving it the feeling of a house. There are white walls and painted floors. It feels light, sunny and modern, with a mixture of designer and vintage decor. We love the main living space with its white-painted beams, quirky lighting and fireplace.

Terrific third story walk-up bear Place des Vosges. Central to everything and a quick, easy stroll to the metro. My kids had a blast with all of the toys, games and movies while my husband and I enjoyed the decor and serene-ness of the space. We will definitely return! Sophie was relatively easy to get ahold of and her mom was so sweet!

We had a fabulous stay at the Francs Bourgeois Residence with our 3 year old and 10 month old. The loft is bright and airy with an amazing cross-breeze and cool relaxed vibe. The location is great for both daily necessities (park, groceries, etc) as well as unique Paris experiences. I would note that the property is best for confident walkers as their are a lot of stairs but overall the space is really welcoming for families!

We stayed at the residence for a long weekend. You can hardly ask for a better location if you like the Marais quarter in Paris. A few steps from the beautifully artistic Place des Vosges, you are on one of the main shopping arteries in the city. Food, drinks, shopping, art, you name it, you have it. The apartment is a jewel for Paris with lots of space and character small children will adore. Don't worry about the noise, the apartment is facing an internal court and is very quiet. It is light and airy. It is on the fourth floor without elevator, but there is space to keep your children boogie and rollers downstairs. Watch for the single bathroom, may become a bottleneck but nothing one cannot manage for a couple of days in the city of lights.

The Marais, The 4th 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.
