ENJOY A REAL TWO ROOM FLAT IN A PRIVATE COURTYARD, IN THE HEART OF PARIS
I live in a fantastic area in Paris : popular, trendy, lively, and with very good transportation links. Located in a private street, full of history, the flat is on the second floor of my mews house with it’s private entrance.
In this privileged place, this true two room flat of 38 square meters has been ideally fitted out to welcome you with all the necessary comfort to optimize your Parisian stay. Freshly decorated and bright, it has the typical French charm that shall make you feel immediately at home (exposed beams, stone floor in slate, flooring). It is also very quiet, which means you might hear the birds singing in the morning or late afternoon, even though you are so close to transportation and the animated neighbourhood. The flat faces two private and planted gardens.
The main room offers a desk corner in the entrance, a lounge place with a sofa bed suitable for two, a dining area, and a totally equipped open kitchen. There is a full bath complet with storage and a spacious shower (120 x 80). The bedroom is functional with a full size bed (140) bedside tables and a big closet. Above the kitchen, a ladder allows you to reach a small mezzanine offering a sleeping area for one person or a child (and storage for the luggage !). Which means that the flat can accomodate either one, two, three, four up to five persons…
The real kitchen is equiped with plate cooking gas and hood, electric oven, oven micro-waves, big fridge with a freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, kettle and coffee machine, and of course all the necessary crockery and utensils.
I will also supply your first breakfast : tea/herbal tea/coffee/jams/French butter and sugar…. And the French baguette when I am around !
Linen and bathroom linen are provided. Hair dryer.
Wifi code. A small television.
My own flat is at the ground floor. I shall be of course there to welcome you and be happy to help you book a restaurant for an amazing brunch or dinner, and give you various tips to make your stay truly enjoyable and special. Share “my” Paris!
Want to go out? Within five minutes’ walk, there are two tube stations (Belleville and Goncourt) that lead you directly either to the centre of Paris (Chatelet/Beaubourg/le Marais….) or to other interesting areas (Montmartre/Pigalle/Place de l’Etoile…). The nearby tube station République is also very convenient to reach almost every area in Paris. Alternatively, you might fancy taking a bus or renting a bicycle (Velib docking station nearby).
What to do close by? You have a great choice. Immediately close by, you can enjoy the local colourful markets, go to typical Chinese restaurants, have a drink or a special meal in a very French restaurant with a terrace, away from touristy places. You can also stroll around another nearby lively area, around rue Oberkampf, full of different bars and places to be, or go down to Canal Saint-Martin – a 6 min walk away - and enjoy small popular cafés, shops and nice restaurants for lovely daytime visits or a great evening atmosphere.
Anyway, Paris is on my doorstep and it is all yours!
Minimum stay : 2 nights
Price for two persons : 100 €. Over fee : 12 € per person over two.
Cleaning fee : 30 €.
A car park in the private courtyard (that belongs to neighbours ) could be available according to your dates. Please ask if needed.
Last but not least, let me introduce myself: I worked for 20 years in movie production, and four years ago started a new life in home renovations and consultancy. I loved doing up my place so much that I decided I wanted to share my knowledge and interests with other people. And so, my home is just like me, a mixture of passions, flights of fancy and professional interests.
Looking forward to meeting you here !
Neat and respectful hosts will always be welcome in my home.
You can also have a look at my two other adds on this website - in my profile.
You will be independant, but as I live on the ground floor of the house, I can be there if needed. And also present on arrival for all advices you might request.
I shall give you two keys for the flat.
Smoking is not allowed inside, but you can come downstairs to smoke in the big courtyard.
Thank you for turning off all the lights when you leave the flat.
From Jul 23 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 6 nights.
L'appartement jaune était super charmant et fonctionnel. Top du top! Le quartier nous a bien plu; le Canal St Martin tout près, le métro à proximité ainsi qu'un supermarché et une superbe boulangerie. Et Agnès nous a accueilli chaleureusement donnant plein d'information sur Paris. Elle était aussi charmante que son appartement! Nous reviendrons!
The perfect flat in Paris!
Nice, quite and cozy flat close to a metro station. Perfectly equipped kitchen and Agnes even gave us everything for a great baguette breakfast the first morning. Thanks!
Since we were in Paris with kids, Agnes also provided great tips for where to go with the kids, so she really was a part of our great Paris experience.
So this flat and host his highly recommended! Have fun in Paris.
If you're looking for a very clean, excellently located and extremely quiet appartment owned by a host that will provide you with ideas and suggestions you'll probably not find in your guide book, this is the place to be.
Agnes provides you with all the information you need to get to her appartment. She receives you personally with a lot of information about the neighbourhood and about Paris in general.
The appartment is very clean and provides enough space for our three girls (15, 12 and 10) to quarrel. You'll find a well equiped kitchen, excellent beds, a functioning tv set, wifi and all the other things mentioned in her advertisement.
The neighbourhood is very lively but as the appartment is situated in a very beautiful courtyard, inside you will never hear any noise from outside.
The apartment is great and a provides a perfect base to explore Paris!
Un accueil parfait, et beaucoup d'attentions de la part d'Agnes
