This rather magical home offers cosy spaces for a family or group looking to stay in in the heart of the Marais – a central and exclusive location. The streets surrounding you, known as Paris’ artsiest neighbourhood, are home to traditional bakeries serving freshly-baked pain au chocolat, bistros like scenes from a romance movie and chi chi little boutiques and shops. That’s not to mention the niche art galleries and the fact that Notre Dame is a fifteen-minute walk away.
Double height ceilings mean this place feels spacious inside, and the exposed masonry and rustic beams give an old-world, Provincial feel. For those travelling with kids or teenagers, the basement playroom with table tennis, is sure to keep them entertained. A kitchen tucked beneath the mezzanine bedroom makes the most of the living space, and is equipped with everything you need for self-catering, that’s if you’re not too busy exploring every bijou bakery and bistro on your doorstep.
Home truths: * It's not the brightest home, particularly in the living spaces but it makes for a good night's sleep
* The ceiling height in the mezzanine level is lower than average
* There is no air conditioning
*Two out of the three bedrooms don't have doors so this place is best suited to those who know each other really well
*There is no parking with this apartment, but you're in the centre of Paris with metro stations on your doorstep
