Filled with heaps of character and an eclectic interior, this quirky home situated in the historical Le Marais part of Paris is suited to families or groups of friends looking for a trendy pad to return to each day. There's so much to see and do outside, with the Notre Dame only a fourteen-minute walk and the Louvre Museum under twenty minutes (on foot) from your door. If you're looking for something even more local, explore the independent boutiques, hip bars and art galleries of Marais – it's worthy of an entire day itself. Back home, stepping in to look around the decor you'll notice flamboyant furnishings, an industrial-chic dining area and funky wallpaper from room to room – we really loved how the bohemian neighbourhood outside is reflected in the unique design. For those who are working during their stay, you'll find a dedicated office space with natural light pouring in, which makes for an uplifting spot to get your head down. But don't work too hard, there's a lengthy tourist itinerary here.
Home truths: *At maximum capacity, this home sleeps nine guests with two on a sofa bed in the living room – two of the beds in the bedrooms are small doubles
* There are only two bathrooms to share between nine people (at full occupancy)
*This home has a lived-in feel with quirky interiors - minimalists may want to look elsewhere
*There's a bit of inconsistency with the room sizes here - with the fifth bedroom being noticeably smaller than the rest
*The kitchen is on the small side - fine for whipping up lite bites, but not so good for socialising while cooking
*There's no air-conditioning at this home
*The work desk is in the second bedroom rather than a communal space
