This exquisite design apartment has just been refurbished. It is composed of an entrance corridor with a closet that leads to a bright living room with a fully equipped kitchen. The large sofa is easily convertible into a comfortable double bed ( 140cm wide ). The bedroom has a queen size bed with a dressing closet.
The bathroom has a nice Italian style shower.
This high quality apartment combines the charm of parisian building with it's original wooden floor and modern features for a practical and comfortable stay in Paris!

The building is in a nice and quiet little street, a few steps from paris's bustling activity.

The direct neighbourhood offers delicious Chef's restaurants, wine cellars, local stores.
A list of nice places in the area is available in the apartment.

Historically being the district of carpenters and wood workers some are still in activity in hidden alleyways around rue du faubourg saint antoine and rue de charonne. Bastille and Faidherbe districts are now known to be the Fashion (designers') district (Isabelle Marant etc...) but also world known architects (Wilmotte etc...)
Close to the historical Marais (Pablo Picasso Museum, place de Vosges). This is the Paris by night place to be, lots of restaurants, bars, night clubs, cafés..
The typical Aligre Market is 5 minutes walk from the apt, open everyday except monday. A typical French Farmer's market where you can find everything from fresh milk and cheese to fresh cherries and apricots or homemade pate. Enjoy a glass of wine after your finished shopping at the lively Baron Rouge (1 rue Théophile Roussel) while rubbing shoulders with the fishmongers, butchers or trendy locals.
The Arsenal Port is 10 minutes walk from the apartment it is the Paris port that connects the Seine to Canal Saint Martin and borders the eastern part of the Marais, from the Bastille to the river.
The Viaduc des Arts and the Promenade Plantée are 10 min walk from the apartment. The Viaduc is one of Paris old train link that was renovated in the 1990s, transforming the lower arcades into workshops and the upper lever, where the trains once ran, into a lovely planted walkway lined with bamboo and roses, the path goes all the way to the Vincennes woods.

This is the perfect place to discover Paris authentically with easy access to every touristic sites!The metro station ( Faidherbe Chaligny ) is just around the corner as well as bus stops and taxi stands. The Bastille metro station in 15 minutes walk, you will find 5 metro lines that takes you to just about anywhere in Paris, including the Louvre, the Champs Elysees, the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre.

  • Having stayed in the neighborhood during previous trips to Paris, I knew it was a good location. Near the heart of the city, with a good market nearby and a mix of old and new restaurants and shops. The neighborhood did not disappoint. One of us went out almost every day to shop for breakfast and other food at the market, and it was lovely to able to casually eat food before going out to visit the city.

    There were 4 of us in the apartment (2 adults, 2 boys), but still it had enough room, with the exception of meals, when we had to improvise chairs (there are plenty of seats if you keep the sofa bed as a sofa, but we wanted to avoid remaking the bed, so we kept it as a bed). We kept the windows open most of the night to keep it cool, and the street was quiet for being in a big city (with the exception of during World Cup matches, when cheers from the larger streets could be heard blocks away). We did not have trouble sleeping.

    The host provided helpful hints, especially at the beginning when we couldn't figure out how to get in. All in all, a very positive experience. Thanks, Franck!

  • Het appartement van Franck voldeed volledig aan de verwachtingen. We verbleven er met 4 volwassen personen en dat ging prima. De slaapkamer is zeer groot en het bed slaapt zeer goed. De slaapbank in de living lag ook zeer comfortabel en was makkelijk terug op te bergen. De ligging van het appartement is fantastisch, de metro om de hoek, maar het is ook mogelijk om overal te voet te geraken. We leerden een nieuwe buurt in Parijs kennen met leuke restaurantjes! Er waren goedkope ondergrondse parkeergarages in de buurt. Wij hadden een aangenaam verblijf !

  • We had a wonderful time in Paris and Franck's apartment was absolutely perfect. We especially enjoyed the closeness of the excellent restaurants. We hope to visit Paris again and stay at this apartment again as well. We would recommend this apartment to anyone taking a trip to Paris!

  • Franck's appts are wonderful! I recommend staying there for sure! they are absolutely the same as in description, neighbourhood is very nice and easy to reach any place you want using metro. Witch is important - 3 mins on foot from the metro station, lots of welcome places for snack, drink and have great time. You will easy find markets/shops where you can have everything you need for life in Paris)) Franck met us in appropriate time, was very nice, explaining to us everything. We appreciated staying at his place!

  • Franck's apartment was a perfect base for us in Paris and he was really helpful and responsive. We got a little lost looking for the address when we arrived to Paris and Franck was readily contactable and quickly directed us to the apartment. Clean, modern, compact apartment (with a really charming courtyard entrance and a beautiful stairway) in a relaxed and interesting neighborhood!

  • Franck was an excellent host. The apartment was very clean and showed as described. Franck was there right on time for both the key drop off and the pick up. He was super in communicating with the 2 questions I had before arrival.
    I'd say this is best for 2 people. the bed was very comfortable and although there was some construction going on, the street noise was minimized by great double-paned windows that have been installed. You will hear people in the hallway (and you can probably be heard too), but that didn't bother us.
    The apartment is in a great location and we fell in love with the food and the staff at the restaurant on the way to the Metro Station (Faidherbe) with the red canopy before you cross to the stain. Fantastic Salade Nicoise and other foods. It's a sure bet.
    At first I thought this was going to be a bit far from all the sights. I was wrong. You will not be on top of Notre Dame, but you will access it, the Louvre, and the Marais very quickly by Metro, by foot and by taxi if you're going out for some fun there.
    It it centrally located between the Nation and Bastille stations and the neighborhood is friendly and not fussy with plenty of restaurants (other than our favorite) and places to people-watch.
    I'd definitely stay at Franck's place again.

  • Franck's was an excellent place to stay for me and my friend's short visit to Paris. The apartment is nice and kept very clean with all the necessary amenities. It's also in a great location, so that I never felt I was wasting time when trying to visit the sites of Paris.

  • The location was perfect. Your are literally a block away from the M8 line. And if you don't want to travel far, there are many great restaurant and bar options in the area. The apartment is very clean and recently renovated. Franck was also very pleasant to talk to and everything turn out really well.
