If you’re ready to fall in love in Paris, prepare to lose your heart to Bernadette. Not a Parisienne but a beautiful two-bedroom villa in the heart of the trendy, thriving Marais neighborhood, Bernadette is both stylish and comfortable, spacious and intimate. The property has all the traditional charm you’d expect from a historic building in France, plus modern perks like an American-style kitchen and jetted tub.
Your stay at Bernadette begins with a meet and greet, including a few welcome treats, and a concierge will be on hand throughout should you need help navigating. Though the villa is in an old-fashioned Haussmannian building with a courtyard, it’s also firmly in the 21st century and has an elevator, laundry facilities, air conditioning and Wi-Fi.
The villa’s soft, country-inspired tones and generous rooms are a respite from the dense, bustling city around it. Painted in muted taupe, lined with built-in bookcases and wide-plank wood floors and bookended by decorative fireplaces, the spacious living and dining room is quietly inviting. After a day of exploring the neighborhood or strolling in museums, you’ll find that the tuxedo-style sofa, striped armchairs and pale grey dining chairs are both pretty and comfortable. And while the apartment is surrounded by cafes and bistros, you may be tempted to stay in and cook in the large, fully equipped kitchen.
The master suite at Bernadette has a queen bed and en-suite bathroom with both a rain shower and a jetted tub. The second bedroom has two twin beds, which can be combined to form a queen bed, and access to a full bathroom. Decorated in the palest green and blue and trimmed in white, the bedrooms are soothing without sacrificing style.
Thanks to Bernadette’s location in the 3rd arrondissement, you’re just a 1-minute walk from the restaurants and shops of the Marais. (Be sure to peek into the nearby Uniqlo, located in what was a gold and silver foundry in the 19th century.) On foot, it’s 15 minutes to Notre Dame and 20 minutes to the Louvre; by car, it’s 20 minutes to the Luxembourg Gardens and 23 minutes to the Eiffel Tower. At the end of your stay, plan on a 12-mile trip to Orly Airport or a 19-mile trip to Charles de Gaulle Airport.
