Paris Rental ID #29
Sleeps up to 2
Cozy & Quiet - Best Location in Paris!

Experience the charm, character and life of old Paris in this studio in a historic and beautiful 17th century building. Located in the prestigious 2nd arrondissement, a “Quartier” rich in history and one of only two in the city to retain a village atmosphere.

Arlequin Studio #29 Living Area

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. Located in a pedestrian district 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 that moved out of Paris proper in the late 1960's. It is one of the most lively and picturesque parts of Paris. Small shopkeepers sell fresh flowers, fruitTable for 2 with wines, vegetables, fish, and an assortment of meats, cheeses, and bread in open shops. Some of the restaurants and stores date back as far as the 17th century! Enjoy the village feeling and sense of place. You will find the bustle and discriminating ambience of Paris until late at night on rue Montorgueil.

But just step into the building on the rue Marie Stuart and leave all the hustle and bustle behind. The building has been completely renovated in the past 10 years 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 security lock. Quiet, secure and convenient, the studio is situated on the 2nd European floor (3rd US) of this small well kept 17th century building. Looking onto the small interior courtyard, it provides a perfect balance to the lively world of the streets outside. The apartment was renovated June 2009 and features a new oak floor, an open designer kitchen, designer bath with large shower, designer furnishings including a first quality sofa bed. A closet/media center bookshelf houses the flat screen television, entertainment center, Wi-Fi and telephone and provides space for clothing.

Rue Marie Stuart is located in the heart of Paris. The Seine, the Louvre, the Garnier Opéra, the Grands Magasins, the high fashion district of the Faubourg St Honoré, the Pompidou Center, the Marais district, the Sainte Chapelle, and the Latin Quarter are all within easy walking distance. The same is true of the shopping center at Les Halles, the Palais Royal, and the Tuilleries Gardens. In the nearby Forum des Halles, you will find a large selection of shops including the largest FNAC (books, films and music) in the city, a large public 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 (les Halles/Chatelet, Etienne Marcel, Sentier) and three transit lines (RER lines A, B and D) within a five minute walk of the apartment. The central bus stop at Place Chatelet is also within a few minute walk.

Need more room?
The apartment is located in the same building as our apartment ID 179 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.

This was out first time in Paris and we could not have asked for a better experience. The apartment was very clean and cozy and had everything we needed and the location was great! Rue Montorgueil was right outside out door and the street had everything you could ask for - cafes, brasseries , boulangeries, shops, and the list goes on. We do not speak French...we knew enough to be polite, but the local people were all very friendly and helpful which made our experience even better. The apartment was a 15 minute walk to the Louvre and to Norte Dame, and the Pompidou area was 5 minutes away. I read in other reviews this was a great area...and they were right! We are already thinking about our next trip to Paris and would rent this apartment again! Thank you for a great Paris experience....

If this is not the best location in all of Paris, it is surely a contender. When we emerged from the Chatelet/les Halles metro station ("you will see the Eglise St. Eustache. Go that way. Turn right after the newspaper kiosk"), we felt like we had stepped into a picture book of Paris. Visitors should not cheat themselves out of that moment by taking an airport cab to the apartment. Walking on, we saw a fromagerie putting out its cheeses, a patisserie across the way, coffee and wonderfully rich hot chocolate a couple doors down ... and it was too early to check into the apartment, so they could not be ignored. Sidewalk cafes are everywhere on the rue de Montegue. The apartment is on a quiet side street, practically an alley, and even that street has at least one fine restaurant. The next morning, we discovered a farmer's market on the next street over. Interesting neighborhoods are walkable in every direction, and it's an easy walk to the Louvre.

It was a unique experience to live in an authentic neighbourhood and to have limited exposure to other tourists. Your staff have been very informative and helpful on the phone. I will absolutely book with you again and my brother will rent one of your apartments this spring instead of his usual hotel booking based on my positive experience and having seen your web site.

Except for the small issue with the air-conditioner, everything about the flat and its location was nearly perfect. We were three girls [Editor note: the apartment now sleeps just two persons] on a fun trip and loved our stay. We found the apartment to be cozy and comfortable with just enough room for us. The street just downstairs with all the cafes, restaurants and shops was wonderful, and we spent lots of time just enjoying the neighborhood. It was perfectly easy to get anywhere in the city from the flat by walking or using the metro. The communication with VIP was great. Everyone was so helpful and informative. I would definitely use your company again, and have already recommended you to some friends traveling to Paris next year. Thank you for a wonderful stay in my favorite city in the world.
