About this listing
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!

A car park in the private courtyard (that belongs to neighbours ) could be available according to your dates. Please ask if needed. The fee is 10 € a night.
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 4 nights.
Wir haben uns in Agnès bunter und liebevoll eingerichteter Wohnung wohlgefühlt. Es hat dort alles, was man braucht. Agnès hat uns mit vielen Tipps zur Stadt und zum auswärts Essen gehen unterstützt.
Mit Sicherheit eine gute Adresse!
Agnes est une personne tout à fait charmante et acceuillante. Elle est de bon conseil et aime vous faire partager ses petites addresses et bons plans concernant les restos, bars, boutiques et balades. Il règne dans l'appartement situé à deux pas du canal St Martin (Superbe) une ambiance chaleureuse. Si on est est à la recherche du calme absolu en plein Paris, cette adresse est idéale. Le fait de pouvoir garer sa voirure à l'intérieur de la cour est un plus indéniable. Nous recommandons donc vivement de séjourner chez Agnès. Thierry, Anne-So et les enfants
We had a great stay in Agnes' yellow flat. She is a fantastic host - thoughtful, considerate and attentive. We particularly appreciated:
1) her book collection
2) the coffee machine
3) her brilliant map of good places to eat etc.
4) the loft bed!
5) the really useful food left in the fridge for when we arrived
6) the powerful shower (it was very hot in Paris)
7) all the little details that made the flat feel interesting and homely
8) the courtyard plants (and animals)
9) the neighbourhood - lots to explore
Hopefully we'll be back!
We had a brilliant two week stay in Agnes' flat. As others have mentioned, Agnes takes her hosting responsibilities very seriously. Right from the start, she quickly responded to our enquiry and she sent us lots of useful information for planning our trip and reaching her flat. She was very flexible about an early arrival which we greatly appreciated after 24 hours on planes. She provided us with tons of useful information about the local area. We tried some of her restaurant suggestions which were off the tourist track and a true taste of Paris. The flat is in a typical courtyard which is very peaceful and quiet. The flat is near three different metro stations which meant that we quickly arrived at our destination wherever it was in Paris. The local area is colourful and eclectic. We walked around at day and night and always felt safe. The workers at the local supermarkets, market and restaurants were very tolerant of our feeble attempts to speak French. There were four of us - two adults and two teenagers - staying in the flat. Although the flat is relatively small (by Australian standards), it is well set out so it felt cosy rather than crowded. It was great having a dishwasher, washing machine etc - everything we needed was in the flat. Overall, we had an excellent experience staying in Agnes' flat and we would highly recommend this host and accommodation to others. Thanks Agnes, keep up the good work - we felt we got so much more out of our Parisian holiday by staying with you and enjoying your hospitality.
Travelled to Paris for six days with four of my friends and we had an lovely six day stay in the yellow flat! The flat was super clean, had everything we needed and wonderfully decorated, it looked very nice on the pictures but even better in real life! The location was superb and Agnès was such a kind and helpfull host - giving us great recomendation and taking time to give us direction and a custom made card with suggestions to great little places for eating, walking and sightseeing, and bringing us lovely baquette for breakfast on the morning of our departure. Will definetly be recommending the yellow flat to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Paris and when I return for furture Paris adventure I will be booking this flat again!
Our host was very welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful and informative during our discussions about the area and all of Paris upon our arrival and any time during our stay that we needed assistance. We loved the colourful flat and felt at home. This was a great location and we were able to walk anywhere we wanted with no issues. It was close to metro stations and bus stations making it easy to get around. We highly recommend this flat for anyone wanting to enjoy a clean, quiet stay with a home feeling...we loved it!
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!
