Paris 3rd arrondissement|
Marais - Montorgueil
Our apartment is located one block from the ‘Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers’, the French State University for applied sciences. This area is also named the ‘Haut Marais’, the high part of Marais area, in the 3rd district (arrondissement) of Paris, to make the difference with the south part of Marais located in the 4th district. Our flat is also ideally located right between 2 very similar and at the same time very distinctive areas : on the east side, the Marais with its numerous bars, ‘delicatessen’, restaurants and clubs; on the west side, Montorgueil with its large pedestrian, food stores, restaurants and trendy fashion or home decoration shop.
This rental apartment is located at third floor, is entirely non-smoking and unfortunately could not accept pets. In July 2010, the flat has been completely renovated. It consists of a large living room with an open-kitchen, connected to a cosy bedroom by sliding doors and a very comfortable bathroom with a walking shower. The restorers were focus on giving back their original aspect to the antic beams, and its brightness to the ancient parquet. The slate tiles covering the ground in the bathroom combine to the stone from Italy for the shower give this feeling of raw and deluxe material. The shower walls offer a magnificent palette of tints between ochre and rust.
The main room (around 25sqm or 270 sqFt) combines a living area, a dinning space and an opened-kitchen.
The brilliant red Kitchen is fully equipped, to make your stay even more pleasant: dish-washer, induction cookers, traditional and microwave mixed oven, large fridge and freezer, not to forget a coffee machine and a toaster.
The Living Room offers 2 comfortable club armchairs and a large sofa-bed will allow you to watch TV (large flat screen), to listen music from our personal CD selection, surf on the web or reply to your email thanks to the free WiFi connection. Have a look on the book shelves: you will find there guide books about Paris, travel magazines, restaurants guides (some of them in English).
Finally the Dining room corner finds its place by the windows, with a contemporary glass table. In the kitchen’s cupboards and inside the Chinese cabinet, you will find dishes, glasses, tableware, table-clothes, sets of table and candles to arrange a nice table for an intimate dinner for two or with some friends.
The bedroom is separated from the living room by a double sliding doors. According to your humor of moment, take advantage of the full space of the apartment, or close the doors for more privacy and intimacy. Bright with its window on courtyard, the darkening curtains isolate you perfectly for long fat mornings. Bed of 160 X 200, small reading lamps, exotic night tables and miniature paintings on rice paper from China with lively colors. A vast closet is at your disposal: you will find iron and ironing board there as well as a baby cot.
We took a very special care to the arrangement and to the design of the bathroom. The walking shower is completely covered with magnificent orange reflects stones from Italy. The powerful rain shower brings you relaxation and wellness. The glass bowl matches splendidly with the ground and the furniture covered with slate tiles. Specially ordered to a craftsman discovered at the Parisian flea market, the silver covered mirror brings a contemporary and very 'art deco' touch. Furthermore, 2 sailboat pictures will doubtless tempt you to extend your holidays by a weekend on the wild Breton coast.
