"Le Sévigné" - Contempory design in the Marais

Our guests are consistently delighted by this little jewel in the heart of the Marais, just around the block from the famous Place des Vosges. The plush apartment for two tastefully combines contemporary design with the 18th-century charm of a wooden staircase and wooden ceiling beams.  All furnishings have been tailor-made to optimize space and comfort in this “suite for two”. Polished ceramic tables from Lisbon, bathroom trimmings from Italy, dark hardwood floors made of African wood, electrical outlets that only pop-out on demand, towel heaters, Italian-tiled “rain shower” with room to dance, moveable flat-screen televisions in each room. Located on the third floor, we will meet you to help bring your bags up, since the building cannot accommodate an elevator. There are only five apartments in the building, so you are unlikely to be disturbed by the noise of neighbours. There is a lively bar on the street below, so in summer months with the windows open you can expect to hear outdoor conversations. With the windows closed the apartment is very quiet.
The cozy living room offers a sofa, a lounge chair and table, decorative items and books for your enjoyment. There is cable TV, free internet and international phone access. The kitchen, in the same room, includes a small dining table for two, a dishwasher, an oven & microwave, and an electric touch-activated range. There is a porcelain set of plates and coffee cups, water and wine glasses, silverware and cooking accessories.
The separate bedroom features a kin-size bed, two reading lamps and lamp stands, a small desk table, a flat-screen TV, and lots of storage space.
The bathroom includes a large walk-in shower, a towel-heater, a washing machine, and a hair dryer.
A stay in the heart of the Marais on rue de Sévigné is bound to enchant you. Just down the street on the rue Saint Antoine, you won’t be able to miss the glorious and recently renovated Saint Paul Church. On the same street, you will find a large choice of specialty shops and cafés. All you need to delight your tastebuds. Just up the street is the rue des Francs-Bourgeois, well-know for its clothing and decoration shops. And just a few minutes on foot, you won’t want to miss the famous Place des Vosges, with its distinctive early 17th-century architecture that makes unlike anywhere else in Paris. There is an extraordinary selection of places to eat, and we can suggest “L’as du falafel” for fast-food, Chez Janou reasonably-priced provincial cuisine out on the terrace, Monjul for creative French cuisine, or Le Dôme du Marais, for an extraordinary atmosphere.

Le Sevigne is a small but beautifully presented apartment about 3 flights up a spiral-like stairway (no elevator so heavy or large suitcases could be awkward). The living room was just as the photos portrayed it - chic, elegant, funky, though smaller than I expected. You will love the bathroom ...

"Success! Cute apartment, great location!" Cute, little apartment with everything you need for your Paris pied-a-terre. Terrific service from Carsten both upon arrival and departure. Be aware that it's on the 4th floor (us) so you'll get a bit of extra exercise. No a/C but it's in an old building ...

We had a lovely time in Paris, thanks to our apartment and our ParisSharing host. The apartment met our expectations, was in a lovely location and although small, had all of the amenities we were looking for. We look forward to staying here again on our next trip to Paris.

Overall the location and facilities of the flat were great, particularly liked the large shower room. Sometimes noisy outside when the windows are open because of the bar across the street and rubbish collection in the mornings.
