The Space

Welcome to a little piece of heaven in the very heart of Paris.

After 8 years living in the city of light, my husband Matteo and I found our dream home in the Parisian 5th arrondissement, within a late-19th-century haussmanian building in perfect state. We are renting a typical Parisian studio, or "Chambre de bonne", just above our appartment but with total independence.

While being at walking distance of many of the main Parisian landmarks (Notre Dame, Le Marais, Panthéon, Luxembourg Gardens, Hotel de Ville...) the studio is placed in the area of the Latin Quarter where Parisians live.

We are absolutely in love with our neighbourhood and if on top of your sightseeing, you are looking for a true local experience we will love to help you discover its delights: The local baker where you can buy warm bread all day, the artisan cheese shops, Jean's wine cave, tons of nice non-touristy restaurants with great food, one of the oldest local markets at Place Maubert three times per week, and much much more!

The studio is cozy and functional, it can comfortably host up to two guests, with a real bed that can become a double. It is located a the 6th floor of the building (no lift but after the stairs you can have that extra croissant!!). You have your own toilet and shower, with an aditional external toilet only used by another studio tenant. You have a new (and super silent) fridge, and a microwave. And of course free wifi. We live in the flat on the 5th floor so if you need anything or some advice we'll be glad to help!

For stays over one week, the price includes one cleaning per week with a change of fresh sheets and towels. If you wished to have more frequent cleaning it is possible, it will cost 15 euro per service.

Regarding check-in and check-out, official hours are after 6pm and before 12.00pm, though if our agendas and other guest's bookings allow it, we are always happy to discuss luggage drop-off or more adapted hours so you can make the most of your stay!

The sudio is connected directly by RER (parisian long-distance metro) with both Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports, and close to various metro lines, tons of buses and various velib stations (Paris bike renting sistem, you can get tickets even daily we'll explain this if you are interested).

We care a lot about our little studio so as you'll understand, we only accept bookings by guests with a complete profile and picture.

If you are interested in staying over or need more information get in touch and we will confirm with you the availability of our place!

Every visit to Paris is magic and we hope our 5th Heaven will make it also unforgettable!

  • Cristina and Matteo's gorgeous little Parisian apartment was the very first Airbnb stay for my boyfriend and me - and we could not have asked for a better experience! We received thoroughly detailed instructions on how to arrive easily from Gare du Nord, and how to let ourselves into the apartment (as Cristina and Matteo were both at work when we arrived early). We actually arrived before the cleaner had finished turning the room over from the previous guests, but Cristina gave us a great recommendation to take lunch at the restaurant downstairs while we waited. The food, staff and atmosphere there (5e Cru - you must go!) were incredible, and we returned twice during our stay!

    The studio is bright, cosy and had everything we needed for a 6-night stay. The view from the window is just magical - a true Parisian feel looking out over the rooftops! Even when just resting or relaxing in the apartment we felt like we were still soaking up a truly wonderful Parisian experience. The apartment was well-stocked with Paris guides (Lonely Planet, Rick Steves etc.), plus the wifi connection was flawless - so we had plenty of resources to plan our days!

    Cristina and Matteo stayed in touch throughout our stay, and even invited us into their apartment downstairs one evening for a glass of wine and gave some great recommendations for cafes and restaurants nearby. We checked out quite a few of them, and they were absolutely fantastic. It was honestly so invaluable to have some local tips on where to eat in Paris!

    Cristina also worked tirelessly to get us a particular restaurant reservation we wanted (after we tried and failed miserably ourselves!), which we hugely appreciated!

    We can't recommend this Airbnb highly enough. The studio is perfect, and the hosts are wonderful. Thank you Cristina and Matteo!

  • Emily and I were new to airbnb and having Cristina as our host for our first ever stay could not have gone any better!! She was incredibly easy to communicate with and responded to all our emails and questions in great detail and in a timely fashion. The instructions to the apartment from Gare du Nord were very straight forward and she was home to help us check in and orient us to the apartment. Pick up the keys first so that you can use the elevator rather than carrying your bags up the 6 flight of stairs. The apartment had everything we needed including a coffee machine. The location was amazing and central to everything!! We definitely would stay here again!!!

  • 5th Heaven. Was great for our stay in Paris.
    The apartment located among the Paris Chimney tops.
    In an area of character and Parisian charm.
    It was all that we needed to provide for a memorable stay in Paris.
    Close to Notre Dame, Saint Michel, and the Metro all within walking distance.
    Christina and Matteo are warm and hospitable hosts.

    Anastasios and Denise.

  • Glenn and I left Paris wishing that we were able to spend more time with Matteo And Cristina. They were so warm and welcoming and we fell in love with them instantly. The room was bright and romantic in a fantastic area of Paris. Matteo and Cristina were so lovely toward us and we can sincerely say that they are wonderful and generous hosts. We spent eight days at 5th heaven and did not want to leave. The room is small however, if you organise yourself well it is no problem. Also...the BEST pillows in our eight week European trip!

  • It was a great experience staying at Cristina's loft! It was very quaint and cute and it was near to the major sights in Paris! It's on the 6th floor so there's a small elevator to help you get your luggage up to the 5th floor and you can carry them one more flight up. Cristina and Matteo was also very helpful, providing us with a lot of information and details. Definitely would recommend to stay at this place :)

  • We loved our stay here. Not only was the room delightful, but Cristina provided us with a ton of wonderful tips for great food, drinks and neighbourhood must-do's. The location is absolutely fantastic with easy walking access to the metro, and some of the biggest attractions in Paris.

  • Thanks so much Cristina and Matteo for sharing your wonderful apartment with us. We absolutely loved it. It was so clean, quaint and very cleverlly designed. There was more than enough room for 2 people and our HUGE amounts of luggage. The locaiton was so central 6km from the Eiffel Tower, and only a wuick walk to Notre Dame. We walked everywhere, it was really pleasant. Cristina and Matteo was incredibly helpful and such amazing hosts, they really made us feel like we were their personal guests. We will definitely come back.

About
My name is Cristina, I grew up in sunny Madrid, Spain and have been living in Paris for the last 9 years. I've also spent short periods of time living in Italy and California. I'm in a loving and comitted relationship with a wonderful italian man, whom I adore and want to grow old with. I am a designer, this means that my work is to discover and think about how people live, who they are and what they need, and to create new products and services that will delight them, and have a positive impact in their lives. I love drawing, crafts, cooking, reading in a lazy sunday afternoon just to relax and spending time with the lovely people in my life doing anything that seems fun. I am an incurable optimist, and you'll see me smiling more often than not. I highly value honesty, respect, tolerance and courage. I enjoy being with people and am very sociable (I speak fluent English, Spanish, Italian and French which helps when travelling) though I also relish and understand the need for moments of quietness and solitute. When I travel I avoid doing crazy kodak-moment tourism. I'd rather see less cities or monuments and try to stay enough time in one place, so I can get a feel of it and what it has to offer and how people live there. I'm currently renovating a little studio on top of my apartment and planning to can become an Airbnb host, so I' thought it may be fun to try the service as a guest aswell, and fully join the comunity!
