Welcome to the very heart of Le Marais district of Paris, a charming and much sought-after setting, within walking distance – safe at all times of the day or night – of the most popular and well-known locations in the heart of Paris.
Our house, which we have faithfully preserved and restored over the last 25 years with a genuine respect for the memory of “old” Paris, was built in 1609 and faces Rue Charlot in the front and looks over a courtyard in the back.
Our 4 independent rooms, with original solid old stones and exposed beams, have been renovated with contemporary design and décor resulting in a completely private and peaceful bed-and-breakfast haven; one of the best in the Paris area.
After a peaceful night, you will breakfast on our local boulangerie baguettes with Jean-Luc’s honey and Denise’s homemade jams www.la-maison-au-bord-de-la-riviere.com.
So explore our site to find more about our b&b and then book with us for your trip to Paris. For a private visit see also www.esprit-de-paris.com and www.rendezvouswithparis.com.
We are looking forward to your visit and to making your stay in Paris a memorable one!

The Marais: the historical heart of Paris. Our central location in The Marais, the right bank, across from The Latin Quarter, makes a perfect base to visit Paris.
Each of our 4 rooms, Enclos des Templiers, Jardin du Marais, L’Echoppe du Grand Prieur, La Cave du Grand Prieur, have their own special character, sensitively restored to incorporate modern facilities.
Taxi is obviously the most comfortable way to reach our home but not necessarily the fastest since we are extremely well connected to the public transportation network.
