Breathtaking views from your own expansive, private rooftop, perched high above one of the best neighborhoods in central Paris, make the magnificent Marais Penthouse an ideal choice for families, friends, or business travelers. The grand split-level layout boasts three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the unique space is characterized with thoughtful design throughout.
An elevator to the fifth floor (sixth floor US) brings guests to the first of two interior levels, welcomed by a dramatic, rotund foyer, with skylights and accent lighting that filter through the spiral stairs. This first floor includes the main salon, kitchen, and dining room. Art deco furnishings and original artwork enhance the exceptional space of the salon with two separate sitting areas. On one side, a bright yellow sofa and stylish sitting chairs are framed by the fireplace and floor-to-ceiling French windows that flood the room with natural light and open up onto the step-out balcony. On the other side of the salon, a smaller, comfortable couch is ideally located near the bookshelves and writing desk - a lovely spot to catch up on writing postcards or settling in to read a good book at the end of a long-day discovering all of the best that Paris has to offer just outside. A TV is cleverly hidden behind a white curved cabinet wall.
The modern kitchen is bright and spacious, with blonde woods cabinets, high-end appliances, a wrap-around counter space, and professional cookware and utensils. A pass-through window to the adjacent, elegant dining room makes serving home-cooked meals a breeze. A beautiful curved-base, art deco table with comfortable seating for eight, atop the lovely inlay tiled floor, can be set up for feel more private by adjusting the ceiling-mounted screens.
Up the spiral staircase, the second level includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The air-conditioned Master Bedroom has a queen-size bed, large closet, and private bathroom with bathtub, walk-in shower with marble slab walls, and dual washbasins. A charming French window brings in natural light that highlights the blonde wood flooring and furnishings of this bedroom, as well as the white walls and extra large beige tiles in the ensuite bathroom.
The Second Bedroom, also air-conditioned, offers a comfortable king-size bed that can be converted into two twin-size beds. Natural light, artwork, deep purple coloring, and a large closet complete this room. The Third Bedroom has a single bed, with a tucked-away trundle bed for an additional guest. A wall of built-in cabinetry and desk make this small bedroom very accommodating. This bedroom does not have AC, but a fan is provided.
The second bathroom on this floor shares the art deco feel of the apartment and displays two blue glass countertops with washbasins, a deep bathtub below a bright angled window, tiled walls, and built-in shelves. Both levels of the apartment have a separate WC with washbasin.
Finally, up another spiral staircase, the pièce de résistance of the Marais Penthouse - the private roof deck - is accessed through a magnificent, automated, octagonal portal. Plenty of lounge seating, reclining chairs, and a large dining table that comfortably seats eight, creates an idyllic setting for soaking up the sweeping vistas of Paris.

Covering Paris’ central 3rd and 4th arrondissements, the Marais is the oldest neighborhood in the city, where medieval roads and architecture now contain designer boutiques, intimate museums, hip cafés, and hidden gardens. Just down the street from the Hôtel de Ville city hall, the Pompidou museum exhibits a wonderful range of modern art on four, expansive floors. In the center of the Marais, thanks to its historic Jewish heritage, you’ll find take-away and sit-down falafel restaurants and delis aplenty, including the world-famous L’As du Falafel, the newer Miznon, and ever-popular Sacha Finkelsztajn deli. Pick up a sweet treat from Pierre Hermé, Café Pouchkine, or L’Éclair de Génie and enjoy it in the calm sunshine of Place des Vosges, the oldest square in Paris, or escape the crowds at the hidden Rosiers-Joseph Migneret garden. History buffs will appreciate the Musée Carnavalet, a history museum dedicated to the city of Paris, as well as the fascinating Musée des Archives, both troves of rare documents and artifacts. The recently renovated Picasso museum and the hunting museum, Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, are fantastic options as well. Head towards metro St-Paul to rummage through the most unique antique and vintage shops in the area. Much of the Marais’ popular and varied nightlife scene caters to Paris’ gay population, but there is undoubtedly something to please everyone. The North Marais, toward Place de la République, is where you’ll find the delicious marché des Enfants Rouge and nearby cultural event center, Carreau du Temple, surrounded by a number of Paris’ trendiest cafés and clandestine cocktail bars.
