A casual,comfortable loft with floor-to-ceiling windows that is open and inviting. It is on a quiet Marais street of galleries and boutiques.Lunch around the corner in Paris's oldest market or walk 5 minutes to Museé Picasso or Place des Vosges.

The space

Located in a historic building dating from the late 18th century, and just around the corner from Marche des Enfants Rouges, this second floor(third in the US)loft lets you relax in comfort. With exposed brick, hexagonal terra cotta floor tiles and original wooden ceiling beams, the apartment has a real charm.

Whether travelling as a couple, a family or with a friend to see Paris, there is space to unwind,dine and sleep comfortably. The salon is furnished with a large oak extendable dining table, sofas and chairs. A new couch pulls out into a comfortable double bed. There is a roomy armoire for clothes and suitcases. Wifi, an old TV, a DVD player and a few films. Unlimited calling to North American cell and landlines as well as landlines in one hundred other countries to stay in touch.

The small kitchen is equipped with a fridge, oven, electric stove top, kettle, toaster, espresso and drip coffee pots, cooking utensils, dishes and all you need for breakfast or to prepare a meal. Tea, coffee, sugar and other food basics are always in the cupboards.

There is a washing machine, an iron, ironing board and drying rack .

The small bathroom has a sink,toilet,wall mounted shower, bathtub, storage cupboard,hair dryer, bath supplies and lots of towels.

The mezzanine has a new queen bed with fresh linens.

The appeal of the loft is that it has large windows, high ceilings, is 40 sqm and that it is in a fabulous neighbourhood. With lots of light and space it is a casual place to come back to after a day out in Paris. Climbing the stairs to a second floor apartment might not suit all travellers.

Guest access

Guests will have the apartment to themselves. I will meet you for the check-in as self check-in is not possible for the apartment.

Interaction with guests

I am a longtime Paris resident. I will meet you in person to show you the apartment, help with any bags and to give you the keys but also to provide you with maps,guide books and tips in order to make your stay in Paris as enjoyable as possible. I can be contacted during your stay should any question or problem arise.

Other things to note

The small one-way street has galleries and boutiques so is lively during the day but without bars or restaurants on the block, is relatively quiet in the night. The building has two security doors. There is a spiral staircase, typical of 18th century Parisian buildings with no elevator.
Due to the stairs to the loft and the tile floors, the apartment is not suitable for small children. The ceiling on the mezzanine is low. The loft stairs might not suit travellers with mobility issues.

Check out time is 11am and check in 2pm. I may have flexibility depending on the arrival of the next guests but that needs to be arranged prior to booking. Please send along your travel details once the reservation is confirmed in order to organize check in and check out.

Jane was a stellar host. She greeted us at her place and helped us settle in; after a long day of travels this was very much appreciated. She was incredibly welcoming and her communication was excellent. She gave us tips for getting around and advice on some of the sights we wanted to see. The apartment itself is located perfectly on a quiet and safe neighbourhood in Le Marais with a ton of boutique shops. Everything was clean, comfortable and well stocked in her place. We would definitely love to come back here.

I love this romantic Paris apartment! It is our second stay. The apartment has everything one would need, bath water hot and plentiful, well equipped kitchen. The neighborhood is a delight. Close to Metro stops and walking distance to many great neghborhoods around Place de la Republique. Trendy and fun! Jane is a lovely woman who is totally responsive to questions and she offers thoughtful recommendations. We hope to retun here soon.

This was an authentic Parisian home stay, from the Juliet balcony doors to small kitchen with hood hole in the wall. It really felt like waking up in Paris. It was cosy and comfy and a fantastic location

Jane was an amazing host. She was there to greet us when we arrived to the flat and showed us where everything was located. She also gave us some nice tips about things to do and see in the neighborhood. Her place is on a quiet block in the best neighborhood in Paris, so it was a perfect jumping off point to see everything in the city.

Jane's loft-like studio is in a great location, steps away from street life but in a quiet street, a rare and priceless combo in the Marais area...

We had a perfect stay in Jane's apt in Le Marais - everything was beautifully furnished, communicating and coordinating was easy, and both the apartment and neighbourhood are very lovely. The area is lively but the street itself is quiet, and the central location made sightseeing and dining easy. Jane had great recommendations for us, especially the restaurant Les Fabricants. We also appreciated that she waited for us to arrive late, and that she had provided a few groceries. It was also very convenient to leave our luggage on the day we left as the next guests were arriving late.

I am a long time Paris resident. I am fluent in English and French. I enjoy travelling and have been throughout eastern and western Europe, China, South America, Russia....I have often rented apartments or houses during my trips and prefer the value and the 'lived in' feeling over the annonymity of a hotel.
