This fantastic apartment is located in the Hotel Megret de Serilly (1620) on the 'rue Vieille du Temple' in the 'Marais' (the historic center and geographic of Paris). Roughly 70 yards on the same pavement from the Hotel Sale (which houses the national Picasso Museum) and 300 yards from the Rue des Francs Bourgeois (one of the most exciting shopping streets in the city) it is difficult to find a more ideal location from which to visit Paris. On what is known as the 'étage noble' (2nd Floor with lift) the apartment benefits from a ceiling height of up to 4.30 meters in certain rooms. It is very quiet and safe.
The entrance hall (27m2) has generous cupboard space and overlooks the fabulous Hotel’s 17th Century courtyard.

The master bedroom is a comfortable 29m2 with a ceiling height of 4.2 m. A traditional parquet in point de Hongrie and apparent beams lends this room an old world charm but the elegant Poliform furniture (dressing cupboards and double king size bed) makes for a functional and comfortable bedroom.
The 3 further bedrooms are all equipped with point de Hongrie parquet floors and ample cupboard space. One bedroom 15m2 has apparent beams and benefits from a mezzanined sleeping area of 6m2. The other two rooms are a comfortable 16m2 each, one is organised as a children room and the other contains a good sized double bed and flat screen television.

The Marais the marsh, was the height of fashion in the 17th century. The salons of important intellectuals thrived here in magnificent private hotels built for them by the leading architects of the day. But the court packed off to Versailles and the area fell from fashion. Luckily, the entire quartier was considered not worth bothering about for a couple of hundred years. In the mid-sixties, it was declared the first historic preservation district in Paris when it was rediscovered in its almost pre-Revolutionary state. Mansions were converted to museums, galleries and boutiques followed. Bars, restaurants and hip tea salons joined the rush. Real estate prices soared.
Today, the Marais is the largest historic district in all France, but it is also up-to-the-minute fascinating.
