Situated in the historic Montorgueil district, rue Marie Stuart is a small and narrow cobblestone street extending about 50 meters between rue Montorgueil and the arcades of the Passage du Grand Cerf. This entire district is closed to traffic and is full of small shops, cafés, restaurants, bakeries, markets and a steady stream of Parisians. Rue Montorgueil is the last remaining vestige of the great “Halles de Paris” – the central market place that moved out of Paris proper in the late 1960's. In the rue Montorgueil you are embraced by one of the most alive and picturesque streets of Paris. It is called the rue Marché and here you can purchase fresh flowers, fruits, vegetables, fish, and an assortment of meats, cheeses, and bread from small shopkeepers who display their wares openly. Some of the restaurants and stores date back as far as the 17th century! Enjoy the village feeling and sense of place and history. You will find the bustle and discriminating ambience of Paris until late at night on rue Montorgueil.
But step into the building on the rue Marie Stuart and leave all the hustle and bustle behind. The building has been completely renovated in order to modernize the infrastructure while maintaining its historical integrity. It features a locked grill at street level and a locked entrance door to the stairwell. The studio has a new three point lock. Quiet, secure and convenient, the studio is situated on the first European floor (2nd US) of this small well kept 17th century building. Looking onto the small interior courtyard, it is the perfect balance with the lively world of the streets outside and perfect blend of old and new. The apartment was completely renovated in December 2007 and features carefully reexposed beams, a new oak floor, an open designer kitchen, designer bath with large shower and heated towel rack, air-conditioning, a first quality double sized bed and an excellent sofa bed.
We have tried to maintain the feeling of the historical context of the building and the area by revealing and refinishing magnificent 400 year old beams and reinstalling wood floors. But we have consistently sought to modernize the conveniences and furnishings in accordance with our sense of style. All appliances, including refrigerator, combination ceramic stove top, oven,dishwasher, microwave oven, and sink are new as are all furnishings. A built in media center bookshelf houses the flat screen television and entertainment center. Another built in closet provides space for clothing and shoes. We have also added overhead light fixtures in the kitchen and wall lamps in the living and bedroom areas. We have installed a big water heater that provides an ample supply of water for showers or baths!
Rue Marie Stuart is located in the heart of Paris. The Seine, the Louvre, the Opera, Pompidou Center, the Marais district, Sainte Chapelle, and the Latin Quarter are all within easy walking distance. The same is true of the shopping center at Les Halles, Palais Royal, and the Tuilleries Gardens. In the nearby Forum des Halles, you will find a large selection of shops as well as a large swimming pool and a Cineplex, complementing the variety of cafes, restaurants, and shops on rue Montorgueil.
Transportation could not be more convenient from this fantastic location. If you cannot walk where you want to go, there are three metro stations and three rapid transit lines (RER) within a five minute walk of the apartment. The central bus stop at Place Chatelet is also within a few minutes’ walk.
Need more room? The apartment is located in the same building as our apartment ID 29 and next door to apartment ID 79 . This is a perfect combination for two or three families traveling together but yet want separate accommodations. Together, the three properties can accommodate up to 10 persons.
