Fifi’s place - Place des Vosges - Marais

The Marais

The Marais is our favourite quartier. Much of the area dates from the 16th and 17thC, featuring narrow streets, fine architecture, boutiques, antique shops, restaurants, cafés. Strict building laws protect its authenticity. This is where Parisians chose to wander on weekends ! The centrepiece is, of course, the Place des Vosges, the purest example of 17thC architecture, its arcaded façade set around a central park with trees and benches - great for a picnic lunch ! Easy walking distance to the Picasso and Carnavalet Museums, Bastille Opera, Ile St Louis, Notre Dame, Ile de la Cité and much more ! Just 5 mins walk on the rue St Antoine you will find the best specialist food shops (baker, deli, cheese, fish, wine, etc.) in the very best French tradition, as well as an excellent supermarket.

On the rue des Tournelles

Just a step to the east of the Place des Vosges, this is an impressive 1910 century stone-fronted building leading with two brick built courtyards. Our apartment is on the fifth floor of the second inner-courtyard - protected from street noises ! Small elevator takes you to this west-facing apartment overlooking the courtyards and surrounding rooftops.
Some 34m², this attractive well-distributed two-room apartment is perfect for 2 and will sleep up to 4. Carpeted throughout, attractively decorated with some nice antiques in a traditional style and in a superb location, this apartment is excellent value for money !

  • To the left off the entrance is first a small shower room with WC. Washing machine.
  • Next to the left is a well-equipped galley style kitchen with good built in cupboards, classic oven, 2 electric burners.
  • Next comes the living room with a cherry wood sofabed (which converts into 1 or 2 really comfortable single beds with proper mattresses) dining furniture. TV, radio and a selection of english books !
