The apartment is located in the 4th arrondissement, not far from the Picasso Museum, the Hotel de Ville, Notre Dame, the Isle Saint Louis, the Centre Pompidou and Place des Vosges, built by Henry IV at the beginning of the 1600s and constructed in a particular brick and stone manner found only in Paris.
The Marais is a typically bourgeois neighbourhood which covers areas of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, on the Rive Droite of Paris (right bank of the Seine).
Most of the buildings in this district are very old. It partly explains the very small streets. This area is full of tales from the past. It is very rich thanks to its historical background and its location. It has been a key part of Paris since almost the very foundation of the city itself. During the 12th Century the Templars eliminated the marshlands north of Philippe Auguste’s borders, and starting from the 16th Century the aristocrats started building vast residences in the area, a tendency which was infinitely increased after the creation of Place Royale, later transformed into Place des Vosges by Henri IV in 1605. The eventual decision to move the royal court to Versailles caused a drastic decline to the area, and Haussman’s later movement to re-establish the city saw an active renovation exclusively in the Marais.
In 1969 André Malraux declared the Marais to be the first protected area, with all its museums, art galleries and historical sites.

fantastic stay - thanks for all the help. Marco was great and very accommodating to our needs. Highly Recommended. The area is unbeatable - marais, bastille, seine all on your doorstep.

It was a great set up - everything worked very well. the sofa bed was a little awkward to set up - might need to go through with guests on how it operates. The pull out bit did not stay in the runs - may need to look at that.
