Picasso GardenBack to Paris
The Picasso Garden is a unique one-bedroom vacation or business apartment located in a 17th-century Parisian hôtel particulier in the heart of the Marais district. This lovely boutique rental is a haven of tranquility in the heart of Paris’ Right Bank. Overlooking trees and cobblestones in the building's courtyard as well as beautiful gardens across the street, it is perfect for couples or small families. The Picasso Garden apartment is situated a short walk to the Place des Vosges and close to many famous museums (Musée Picasso, Maison Victor Hugo, Musée Carnavalet, Centre Pompidou, etc.), and also near many charming boutiques, cafés, and fabulous fresh food markets.
This inviting Paris rental designed and renovated by its Parisian architect owners features hardwood floors and a large main space, similar to a loft in that it is both a living room and bedroom. It can be divided at night by a thick, silk curtain, creating a sense of both privacy and coziness. During the day, you can leave the curtain drawn back to reveal a large, streamlined room, with beautiful windows letting in sunlight and views. At one end, closer to the entrance, is a queen-sized bed placed over Japanese style bamboo matting, and at the other end is the living room and dining space, with a dining table and sofa that also folds out to become a comfortable queen bed, for additional sleeping space. Window seats overlook the beautiful gardens across the way.
The separate, up-to-date kitchen is fully equipped for enjoying the culinary delights of Paris. There is a gas stove, modern appliances, and plenty of counter space. The modern design bathroom has a large Italian-style walk-in shower with a shower bench and elaborate tiling and a separate W.C. (connected to the main bathroom).
This contemporary space provides all of the comfort and style of a boutique hotel and is the perfect chez vous after a day spent wandering the streets of Paris. As this Paris flat is in the heart of the Marais, a district known to house a large gay and Jewish community along with fashion aficionados, young couples, families, and people in the art world, it is the perfect home base for just about anyone who wants to spend their vacation in comfort and style.

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.
