Rue des Francs Bourgeois, 3rd Arrondissement, Le Marais, Three-Bedroom, Sleeps up to 8
As seen on House Hunters International!
In a historic Marais building dating back to the year 1510, sits this newly renovated, luxurious, family-size apartment. Before even entering the building, the first great advantage you will notice is the location; the apartment looks out onto one of the Marais’ most prestigious intersections, in the heart of this chic and fashionable quartier.
The apartment itself is equal to the excellent location. The well-designed floor plan means that all rooms are of a generous size, without exception.
One enters on the second floor of the building into a foyer from which all other parts of the apartment are directly accessible. The foyer itself is majestic with a large credenza under a gilded mirror along with a small antique secretary. There is a guest powder room just off the foyer.
Go left and you find the master suite with double closets on both sides as one enters, a writing desk under a beautifully framed mirror and an en suite bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. The queen-size bed is adorned by two night tables with lamps, and another larger table, with two drawers. As with other areas of the apartment, natural light pours in thanks to a large window with southern exposure. That is, unless you choose to draw the elegant silk drapes to block out all the light and sleep late.
From the foyer if you look straight ahead, you may enter a hallway leading to the second and third bedrooms and the main guest bathroom. The second bedroom is the first door on the left. There you will find a queen-size bed, double closet, dressing table/desk and chair.
Across the hall is the modern, tastefully conceived, main bathroom, complete with tub/shower combination, toilet, sink, heated towel rack and full-length mirror.
At the end of the hall is the third bedroom decorated in shades of mauve and complete with twin beds, whimsical night tables, and full sized closet with sliding doors. This room is ideal for kids or two adults requiring separate beds.
With three large windows and the best southern exposure, the spacious living room/dining room is bright and beautiful. The living room is comprised of two buckskin wingback chairs, a high quality leather sofa that converts into a double bed, coffee table, occasional table and large entertainment center. Full entertainment includes a large flat-screen television, DVD player and Bluetooth enabled iPhone/iPod docking station. Dining for up to six at the ellegant dining table.
One of many highlights of the apartment is the gourmet kitchen with an exceptional amount of counter space, high-end cabinetry and a bar with built in sink that overlooks the dining room. The kitchen is very well equipped with an enormous, double door refrigerator with integrated wine cooler and freezer, a La Cornue 4-burner gas stovetop with hotplate and oven, microwave, dishwasher, Nespresso machine and much more.
Of course, to take advantage of this amazing kitchen all pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, cookware, glassware and serving pieces are provided.
Included with the apartment is cable television, with over 100 channels, WiFi and free telephone with answering machine. Long-distance calls to land lines in over 100 countries are free. This extends to calls to cell phones in France, the US and Canada.The Right Bank

The apartment was terrific. When I rented it I thought the photos looked almost too good to be true... But it turned out the photos were true!! Thanks! It really was a wonderful experience (and we have rented many apartments in Paris!)

We very much enjoyed our stay at La Tour des Bourgeois. The apartment was ideally located in the center of the Marais, steps from great dining and shopping, yet on a comparatively quiet, small side street. The flat was spacious, clean, tastefully decorated, and had clearly been renovated with great care. The bathrooms were modern and spotless, and the kitchen was very handsomely equipped with a wine refrigerator, dishwasher, gorgeous stove, and a Nespresso coffee maker and milk frother---a perfect way to start our day. We walked nearly everywhere, but when we needed it, several Metro lines were fairly close at hand. Beds were comfortable and linens were nice and soft, and---amazingly for Paris!---closet space was ample and well-organized. As promised, someone was at the apartment to greet us when we arrived and make sure we were set up with Internet access, knew how to work the phones and appliances, and had everything we needed. We were traveling for business and appreciated the free calls to the US and consistent Internet service, as well as having the space to sprawl out on the dining room table, either for work or meals. Overall, a wonderful stay---my colleagues are already talking about returning!

The apartment was quite spacious and very comfortable for our group of six adults. It had all the amenities to feel at home, e.g. TV, Wi-Fi, etc. The kitchen was modern and well-equipped. The location was in a relatively quiet residential area and gave us the feeling of living like Parisians. Markets, boulangeries, patisseries, etc. were all very convenient.

We loved staying at La Tour des Bourgeois! The apartment was beautiful and had absolutley everything we could have asked for. Grandparents, parents and kids all enjoyed their own rooms and ample space. It was close to everything - great bakeries, cafés and shopping was all near, and it was close to the Métro line 1 which would take you just about anywhere in Paris. My children loved it and decided when we go back this is where we should stay. Thank you for a wonderful experience for us all.

We loved the apartment. It was spacious yet cozy as well. We enjoyed sitting in the living room looking out the windows and relaxing. We only cooked about two meals but the kitchen was well equipped with everything you needed. After sightseeing it was nice to come back to the apartment after a long day. The Concierge was very warm and welcoming. I already recommended your website to another Hawaii couple who is coming to Paris for a month.

We truly loved our stay at La Tour des Bourgeois. This elegant, spacious, and light-filled home offered every possible amenity and a location that exceeded our expectations. It is in the heart of the fashionable Le Marais and in an area filled with fabulous shops, bakeries, cafes, and wonderfully historic homes. Truly charming and reminded me of Boston's Beacon Hill combined with elements of Newbury Street's fashionable shopping district. We loved the high-end bathroom appointments that included Durafit and Villeroy & Boch fixtures. Elegant and modern bathrooms and having 2 1/2 bathrooms was very convenient for the four of us. The elegant foyer and the crystal chandeliers were also exceptional. The furnishings are comfortable and elegant but not fussy. A very well equipped kitchen that we used for coffee and serving croissants. With over 8,500 restaurants and cafes we could not justify cooking a meal at home. If we were inclined, it would have been a joy workng in this kitchen! Overall, this home and the location will delight you and make your stay in the magical city of Paris truly memorable.

This place is amazing! There were six of us: my husband, myself, our two young adult children, my sister and our niece. And the place has felt like a place with plenty of room for all. So many thoughtful, convenient touches. Très élégant, très luxe. And a magnificent location!
Anne and Marc B., Seattle, WA
What a spectacular apartment! We felt like royalty with the amazing décor and incredible spaciousness. The neighborhood could not be better. We enjoyed shopping and cooking with local ingredients. There is no better way to get to know a city. Our favorite times were spent sitting in the open windows watching the Parisian world go by. Thank you so much and we hope to be back some day.

It was hard to drag ourselves out to see the sites - the apartment is so lovely in every way. We are a group of cooks so the kitchen was especially delightful. We hope you get to enjoy this wonderful place as often as possible, is it so truly special. Merci beaucoup!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful apartment with such a fantastic location. Well appointed and perfect for our group of six - my husband and I and our four adult children. The Parler Paris Apartments team was very responsive to a small problem that was encountered and most gracious in accommodating our early arrival and late check out. Could not have asked for a more perfect experience.
