"Le Charles V" Long-Term Rental

Rue Charles V, 4th Arrondissement, Le Marais, Large Studio, Sleeps up to 4 (18 yrs and older)

As seen on House Hunters International! Episode "A Taste For Paris" - Episode HHINT-6801ZH

Le Charles V is a beautifully appointed Marais studio located on the quiet rue Charles V, just steps from the charming Village Saint-Paul's art galleries and antique dealers. For location, this can't be beat -- as only two blocks away lie the Seine and the Ile Saint-Louis. Place de la Bastille is just steps away as well as the elegant Place des Vosges. Less than a five-minute walk brings you to the Saint-Paul Métro stop and numerous buses serve the area.

Step outside to a treasure trove in the heart of Le Marais...from savory to sweet. Start at the boulangerie, then move onto the fromagerie. Do as the Parisians do: dine in on gourmet take-out -- perfect roast chicken with potatoes along side. Don't forget to finish up at the patisserie. Want to go out? Discover the Marais' bistros and brasseries just moments from your front door. Along the way, uncover a few of Paris' best kept shopping secrets in the chic boutiques lining the streets.

Protected by two digicode controlled doors at street level, the apartment is located on the 5th (European) floor of the building. The elevator makes for easy coming and going. Three, floor to ceiling east facing windows fill the apartment with beautiful light during the day, as well as offering a lovely view of the surrounding rooftops.

Newly renovated (2018) and tastefully decorated by Martine di Mattéo, the studio has been designed to accommodate four persons if needed, thanks to a curtain that separates the double bed from the couch bed.

Two large, comfortable armchairs in the living room area allow you to read, watch TV or just relax. The dining table is generous in size and can seat up to three people.

The full kitchen includes a cook top, refrigerator, and microwave/convection oven, as well as a bar with stools for a quick meal. For your added convenience the apartment has its own washer/dryer combo unit.

The bathroom is equipped with a shower, sink and toilet in one well laid out room, which is always stocked with plush fresh towels prior to your arrival.

Designed for the “plugged in” traveler, the apartment has free WiFi Internet, cable TV with over 100 channels, including Sky TV, and free international phone calling to over 90 countries.

Great studio to stay in Marais District. This was a very nice remodeled studio. We experienced no problems just like last year. The studio is very light inside due to all the windows, plus being on the top floor with an elevator. Being old (70s) the elevator made a great ...

Peace and quiet in the heart of the Marais. This sun-filled apartment is in a superb location between blvd. St Antoine and the Seine, right next to the quirky shops of St Paul. I wrote about our stay on my blog:


Please look no further if you are looking for a Paris vacation rental. The apartment itself is very well equipped and so very charming. The location cannot be beat and the neighbourhood and building itself felt very safe. In addition to the unit itself, dealing with the property management staff ...
