Staying and experiencing Parisian life as Parisian.
If you want to experience Paris at its best then come to Marais. This area of Marais is central, safe, and packed full of cafes, bars, famous nightclubs, music venues and the famous Enfants Rouges Market along with beautiful Places des Voges and museums,the most fashionable district of the center of Paris.The flat is situated at the 3rd arrondissement .Center of the center.
The appartement is in the 19th building , has entirely been renovated recently, January 2015 by me, a Japanese interior designer and furnished with mixed selected original high standard vintage design furniture.So most of things are brand new.
It is filled with art and antiques from my own paintings and my choice of vintage finds, antiques and objets d'art.
The apt window overlooks the inner courtyard so even though you're situated very center of Paris or in the Marais, the apt is very calm and quiet .
It is on the 2nd floor, NO elevator.
LOCATION! The location is very convenient as a sightseeing base for the whole Paris. For those who enjoy shopping, art, culture,… this is the perfect place .
Ideally located for exploring all that Paris has to offer - shopping, art galleries, museums, cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, palaces and parks - in what is arguably considered one of the most beautiful and historic neighbourhoods in Paris.
it is a perfect place to call home when you stay out all day exploring the city
