Cité Dupetit Thouars, 3rd Arrondissement, Le Marais, One-Bedroom, Sleeps up to 4
As seen on House Hunters International episode "Starting Over in Paris"
Claire de Lune sits tucked away on an historic and quiet "cul de sac," making it an oasis of peace and calm. This second floor apartment (two flights), has two large bright windows that face a classic Parisian courtyard. With digicode, intercom entry system and elevator, it has been completely newly renovated and professionally decorated to the height of luxury, with a soothing "aubergine" (eggplant) and taupe color scheme. Everything in the apartment is new, from the designer linens and towels, to the appliances and electronics.
As one enters the apartment, the quality of the finishes becomes immediately apparent. The full kitchen is equipped with a built in oven, a two burner stove top, a refrigerator, washing machine and contains all elements necessary to prepare anything from a sandwich between sightseeing trips to a delicious multi-course meal. Meals can be served on the round dining table, perfect for 4, but expandable to allow 6 guests to dine comfortably.
In the living area is a contemporary sofa that pulls out easily into a comfortable full sized bed. Behind the sofa is custom-designed built-in cabinetry, which provides ample storage space. From the sofa you have easy access to the entertainment center, which features a Sony flat screen television, DVD player and a selection of English language DVD's. Cable TV allows you to watch over 100 channels, including several in English such as CNN and BBC World.
From the main living area you enter the bedroom through French doors, complete with blinds for total privacy. The bedroom is made for comfort with fine linens and a new, very comfortable queen sized bed that can also be separated to make into twins to sleep two separately.
The double-mirrored closet in the bedroom provides plenty of hanging and storage space. Another door from the bedroom leads into the small hallway outside the bathroom. The bathroom, which can also be accessed directly from the living area, has a full shower with a rainfall showerhead, toilet, sink, vanity with space for toiletries, and a medicine cabinet.
Staying connected will be easy from L’Aubergine with free WiFi internet access and unlimited free telephone calls to over 70 countries, including the U.S., Canada and Australia.

The rental experience was fantastic. The apartment was all that we had hoped for and more. Our Concierge was very welcoming and very efficient. We felt that we were taken care of very nicely. The apartment was wonderful. It was very clean, well appointed and cozy. It was a lovely haven to come back to after a busy day of touring. The neighbourhood is fantastic, steps to everything. The little bistros/cafes nearby have everything you could ever want. The grocery store around the corner was very well equipped. The Métro station, " Republique" is right around the corner. It was so convenient to everything. It is beautifully decorated. We appreciated the coffee/filters/tea etc. that were supplied in the apartment. We appreciated the washer/dryer as we had been on the road for a week and needed to do some laundry. Renting an apartment is the way to really get to know Paris. We felt liked we lived in the neighbourhood!

We enjoyed our apartment and the amenities very much. The apartment was located very conveniently near a main Métro stop in Paris. We traveled around Paris easily with just a short trip to/from the apartment. We also appreciated the proximity to the grocery store and post office (to send postcards home!) We felt very safe and very much enjoyed being located in a less touristy area. It felt like we were living in Paris, not visiting. The apartment was warm and very comfortable. The perfect size for the two of us.

Having stayed at both Le Beau Marais and L'Aubergine, we couldn't have been happier. L'Aubergine with it's closed off bedroom, supplies enough privacy for all. The accommodations work perfectly. Being so close to the République Métro makes traversing the city very easy. We tend to come to Paris with restaurant reservations already made, but in the immediate area up to Bretangne, there are enough cafes to satisfy anyone's needs. I am certain that we will never stay at a hotel again, having found "our home" in the thirs arrondissement.

A note to say how much we enjoyed our 10 days in Paris at L'Aubergine. We have loved the Marais neighborhood during our last three visits and still think it's the best. We loved having the washing machine available and the thoughtfulness of providing so many "niceties" like coffee, guidebooks, paper towels, etc. It's always nice not to have to feel pressed to immediately go shopping for necessities! And thanks for your help, when we found ourselves suddenly without power. We appreciate your responsiveness.

The Concierge was excellent and very helpful. It was great to go to the apartment and there was some oil and basics to keep us going for the week. We only had to get our daily food needs; not condiments. And we liked that other people had left foodstuffs they could not take with them so the next guests could use them too. The apartment had everything we needed.

We certainly enjoyed our stay at L'Aubergine! The service was excellent and the location perfect for us. We felt like we were actually part of a neighborhood.

We loved the apartment itself and thought it was very well appointed and well maintained. I especially enjoyed the fact that the essentials were already supplied such as (soap: dish, hand,laundry; paper: toilet; towels; kitchen basics such as plastic wrap, COFFEE!, etc) It saved us having to navigate the grocery store our first day! I can't think of anything that was lacking. The location was so convenient and close to two Métros making everything so readily accessable. We really enjoyed the neighborhood as well. The apartment itself was very comfortable and we appreciated the little extras like the English movies to watch after a long day of sightseeing! We really enjoyed our stay in Paris and would highly recommend Parler Paris Apartments to others...in fact I have sent your link to several friends and relatives already and wrote a review for Trip Advisor. Everything listed on your website met and exceeded our expectations and your prompt, professional and courteous staff were a pleasure to deal with. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to travel to Paris again and we will certainly know where to stay!

L'Aubergine turned out to be the perfect place for my recent visit to Paris. My daughter is a college student at New York University, and she was offered the opportunity to study her freshman year at NYU's Paris campus. Who could say no? Instead of traveling home during her spring break, my daughter asked if some of her friends back in Pennsylvania would like to visit her so she could show them her new city. I offered to escort the three young ladies and help show them around, since none of them had traveled outside of the US. I also offered them a place to stay rather than having them cram into my daughter's small college apartment! Everyone agreed that it was a much nicer experience staying at L'Aubergine rather than in a hotel. It really gave the feel of "living" in Paris, if only for one week. L'Aubergine was as beautiful as its pictures suggested, and every detail was seen to. The kitchen was well appointed, and it felt like a luxury being able to make fresh coffee every morning and even do some light cooking! Definitely a plus for young girls traveling on a budget, and they enjoyed doing a little shopping at the local markets to stock the fridge with drinks and snacks! The free phone calls to the US were great for the girls to call home and check in with their parents, and the wifi was a fantastic plus! Their unforgettable week in Paris was chronicled and up-dated daily with pictures on Facebook so their family and friends could share in their excitement from home. L'Aubergine offered every modern convenience, and was laid out perfectly to enable 4 "girls" to shower and get ready to go out every day. The location was secure and quiet, and we had wonderful access to the Metro and to all of Paris. The elevator was a lifesaver for our bags, and there were even several parapluies in the room which was a great bonus as it rained on several occasions! The girls loved the room as much as I did, and were very comfortable staying there. Sleeping 4 was very comfortable. It was the perfect accommodation for us, and I kept thinking how much my husband would love to stay there as well. I would most certainly return to L'Aubergine, but I would also like to stay at other Parler Paris locations depending on the reasons for my visit to Paris. I don't think there is a wrong choice when it comes to Parler Paris.

Our family enjoyed our rental experience with Parler Paris. My husband and I were in Le Beau Marais and our adult children were in the apartment below us, L'Aubergine. Both apartments had everything we needed for our stay. We appreciated Jennifer meeting us and getting us settled and for being our contact in case we needed anything. The location of these apartments was ideal--on a quiet street yet close to stores and the bustling Place de la Republique. We especially like the new Nespresso machine in Le Beau Marais--a great way to start the day and a lovely way to enjoy an evening. We were very comfortable.
Donna S., Tucson, AZ
We appreciate the "extras" in the apartment such as paper towels, toilet paper, soaps, etc. as it makes our experience much nicer than having to hurry to a grocery upon arrival to stock up on these kinds of items. Merci!
I have enjoyed your newsletter for many years and this year I had the opportunity of enjoying a month in one of your apartments. It was my own little slice of heaven. Having followed your chats I was quite certain that what I rented would be of a high standard and I was not disappointed. Usually when I am away, for even a short time, I long to get home to my own comfortable bed but not this time. I assure you, the bed in the Aubergine was as perfect, if not better, than my own! This made going home even more difficult. Not only was the apartment perfect, so are your staff. They have been a great help ever since I made my decision to have a proper stay of Paris. Each and every person I spoke to from the 'Leeds enterprise' was polite, charming and helpful. Do you just automatically attract good people or are you a good judge of character? I am looking forward to my next vacation en Paris.
Patricia Young, Australia
The apartment was everything you promised. The location is perfect for a short vacation, allowing us to reach every corner of Paris easily. The apartment is quiet, well decorated, comfortable and close to many stores. I certainly would recommend your agency to my friends and would use it again when we go back to France.
