The space


Our apartment is a large 31 sqm (335 sqft) studio located in North Marais (NoMa), in the protected and historical Temple area, which has lately become one of the trendiest places for Parisians, around Carreau du Temple, rue de Bretagne, Marché des Enfants Rouges, away from over-crowded south Marais and close to major subway connections.

It is on the 1st floor (US 2nd) of a 4-floor (US 5) 18th century building (NO LIFT). It is oriented South and has 2 wide windows overlooking a large, almost pedestrian street, and a third large window on a side street. It has an open outlook and is very bright.

The area is lively in the summer evenings due to the restaurants in the street, but there are no night bars or clubs. Visit our guide which we keep updated!

The building exterior was refurbished in 2011 and the apartment itself was fully renovated by an architect in November 2011. The staircase was renovated a few years ago and shows signs of age but is well above standards in the neighborhood.

The studio consists of:

- An entrance hall with separate toilet,
- A living area with an open fully equiped kitchen,
- An alcove bedroom, and
- A bathroom with an oversize walk-in shower.

The interior architecture is designed to give a feeling of space though preserving intimacy to the alcove bedroom.

After the pictures were takenn curtains and nets were installed and the round table which was a bit small, was replaced with a new glass top folding table that comfortably fits 2.

It is equipped with:

- Whirlpool refrigerator with freezer,
- Whirlpool oven/microwave combo,
- Electrolux glass top stove and venting hood,
- Electrolux dishwasher,
- Samsung 32' cable HD TV with DVD player
- Sony ipod, Iphone / CD sound system (with a selection of CDs),
- Brandt radio alarm clock,
- Siemens cordless phone,
- Nespresso coffee machine (with free coffee caps)
- Boiler, toaster,
- Iron and ironing board,
- Hairdryer,
- Housewares

It comes with quality bed linen (2 pillows per guest until 2) and towels, WiFi connection, free telephone to several countries, cable TV with 70 channels and international AC adapter for your own devices.

- Local prepaid cellphone : 30 eur
- Canal + (Number one French pay TV) : 10 eur/week

An area filled with history:

The Templars headquarters was built here in the 12th century. It sheltered the Templar’s treasury, until 13 Oct. 1307 when all Templars were arrested on the same day nationwide (known as the largest police operation ever and origin of Friday the 13th). The temple house was then used throughout centuries as a jail until Louis XVI, the last king of France was kept there with Marie-Antoinette before being taken to the guillotine.

The Temple house was then destructed after the French revolution as the fear was that it became a royalist pilgrimage. Today the only remaining signs of the Templars presence are embeded in the buildings of the area, a full size floorplan of the Temple tower painted on the pavement by the city hall and a memorial plate with a map of the old Temple buildings.

In a more recent history, n°14 Corderie Street was the headquarters of riotters "Communards" during the attempt revolution of 1871, known as "Commune de Paris".

The Temple area now consists of the English-style Temple square, the Eiffel-like steel structure temple market (Carreau du Temple), the classical 19th century 3rd district city hall, a superior school of design (école Duperrée), restaurants, art galleries, shops and a few private apartments, including our Studio, which faces the temple market and the school of design.

Central and convenient location:

Our studio is walking distance from Place des Vosges, Centre Pompidou, Notre-Dame and Musée Picasso and 10-20 min. metro ride from every other point of interest in Paris (République and Temple subway stations are around the corner).

This apartment was great, it is well laid out with everything you need and in a central and lively location. Benoit was a fabulous host and was always quick to communicate. I would definitely stay here again.

Benoit & Rodolphe's place is compact with all the comforts of home. The place was very clean, the bed very comfortable with quality bedding and towels. Location is great, close to numerous excellent restaurants and bars. We recommend this place as ideal for a single traveller or couple wanting to stay in a trendy apartment in a trendy location.
