Home in the Marais home swap

80 sq metre flat In the heart of the historic Marais, in central Paris, ideally situated a few minutes walk from the Place des Vosges, St Paul, the recently re-opened Picasso Museum, the Pompidou Centre, and the countless art galleries, hidden gardens, restaurants, boutiques and museums of the Marais. Not to mention the bustling Bastille and Republique areas.

We live in a recent building facing beautiful 18C hotel particulier. Windows look out onto trees on one side and a pedestrian area and lovely semi-private rose garden on the other. Incredibly calm - you're more likely to be woken by birds in the trees or the church bells than the sound of a car. If your party includes a pianist, we have a piano which you're welcome to use.

The flat comfortably sleeps two adults and two children (children-sized bunk beds) and can sleep an additional adult (or two at a pinch) on a sofa bed.

About the location

Le Marais is the ancient historic district on Paris' right bank (rive droite). The area hosts countless buildings of historic and architectural importance. There are dozens of beautifully kept gardens and squares including the famous Place des Vosges, a few minutes walk from the flat. There are restaurants and bars for every taste and budget, and entertainment for everyone from the hip and trendy, to those in search of culture and refinement. It's an ideally situated area to explore the rest of the city on foot or bicycle (there are rental bike stations right by the house), or public transport. The Ile St Louis, Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, and the Louvre are all within comfortable walking distance or a short metro/bus ride.
