Two small artist's ateliers at ground floor level transformed into a very comfortable and designed apartment. Located in the green courtyard of a secured residency, it's quiet and very romantic.

The Space

The apartment is ideal for a couple or two independent friends It offers every amenity you migth need during your stay, holidays or business trip.

First atelier - living room
The couch bed folds out easily into a comfortable double bed (French size; softer than the others, bought 9/2011) - for guests who do not want to climb up to a mezzanine.
Office space - see below/
Folding chairs and table, 1 1/2 cupboards are empty.

Mezzanine over the living room
This is my 'main bedroom" with a new double bed (Extra firm, 6/2012), not visible from beneath.

Second atelier - kitchen and bathroom
Kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, oven, espresso machine, microwave etc, spices and basic staples.
Bathroom: small tub and washing-drying machine.

Mezzanine over the kitchen
Single bed (firm mattress, 11/2012), some empty shelves - practical, if you are two friends who do not want to share the bedroom. I use this mezzanine to read comfortably under the window.

Internet - office space
Internet by cable or very fast wireless, television via the computer, printer, scanner, hifi-set with great sound. You may even play your music from your iPhone / iTunes directly on the hifi set without docking.
Free phone to France and other destinations (will check your kind of numbers to tell you before if free or payable at real fees).

Towels and sheets, information on Paris, books and music are provided.

The garden
is part of the residency's courtyard. If it's sunny, you may eat outside, take a sunbath, pick some herbs or fruits - whilst respecting the neighbors.

Please note: the apartment is fine for a couple, two friends or a single person, even for a long stay. For a short stay, you may be three, if you use the place mostly for sleeping and eating. It's too small, if three people stay mostly at home during a long stay.

Guest Access

You may use everything which is easily accessible - not locked in nor over 2m above ground.
The computer is accessible in visitor's mode only.

Interaction with Guests

You may always reach me by phone or mail, if you have a question or do not find a thing or a function. You get the keys from a friend who lives close by and may help you in case of need.

The Neighborhood

The quarter is a calm, residential area, Many restaurants, shops, boutiques, cinemas at a few steps from the door.

Getting around

You can reach every destination via the Metro and four bus lines. The station of Velib cycles is practically at the doorstep (for rent by the hour). Autolib (electric cars for hourly rent) in the next street.
Ask us for advice regarding arrival, parking, travels in France or your stay in general.

Other Things to Note

LATE ARRIVAL: If you arrive with a late flight at the airport, it may be more comfortable and not much more expensive to take a hotel at the airport for the night and book one night less in Paris. If you prefer to arrive directly at the apartment in the middle of the night, please indicate this before booking !!

  • Ich war für einen Forschungsaufenthalt in Paris und kann Helga's Wohnung nur empfehlen. Sehr gute Anbindung, ruhig in einem Hinterhof gelegen, umwerfende Einrichtung und Ausstattung. Super!

  • Parisienne mais mon appartement en travaux, nous sommes restées ma fille et moi chez Helga pendant 4 semaines. Cet endroit est formidable et très dépaysant
    ! Comme vivre sur un bateau. Plein de petits recoins pour s'isoler et rien ne manque. Du lave-vaisselle, au séche-linge en passant par le grille pain...tout y est! Je regrette juste que ce fut l'hiver car le jardin doit être une merveille au printemps. Une bonne raison d'aller boire un café avec la bienveillante Helga, pour découvrir toutes ses plantations en fleur. En ce qui concerne le quartier, c'est le mien habituellement et il est vraiment parfait! Mille commerces et découvertes urbaines. La joie de cet endroit atypique à rendu le calvaire des travaux nettement plus FUN!! Merci Helga. A très bientot. J.

  • Great communication with Helga, long, detailed and speedy replies. Everything is quite condensed, tightly squeezed but its ok after a while, you get used to it. Great location, less than two minutes to metro, friendly neighbours with even friendlier cats. Great books to read, very well stocked kitchen with basic ingrédients and detailed recipe books to match. Merci Helga.

  • Notre séjour à Paris était trés bien. Helga est une personne trés gentille et toujours à disposition por aider. Elle n'était pas au appartement à notre arrivé, elle était en voyage, mais un ami a nous rendu les clés. Elle a laissé des délices françaises pour nous donner les bienvenues.
    Helga est rés correct, l'appartement est petit, mais il ne manque rien, il est bien equipée, la discription est correct. La estation de métro est trés proche de l'immeuble.
    Helga est trés disponible pou donner des information sur le quartier e sur la villle de Paris, sont téléphone est toujours à disposition. Merci Helga!

  • Helga is very nice and so is her appartment! She showed me around, explained the usage of all the ustensils before her depart and (email hidden) about everything as well. Her appartment is very conveniently located but is also very quiet. There is everything you need in the appartment and you can also easily purchase groceries nearby. An ideal place for a short stay in Paris!

  • Notre séjour dans l'appartement d'artiste, se passe super bien, on a beaucoup aime, tout que il y a dans l'appart est bien pense, Il y a tout.
    Le quartier est sympathique et tranquille et Helga est super, une personne incroyable est toujours prêt pour aider. Maintenant on habite dans un autre endroit fixe a Paris et comme ça on vas faire un rendez-vous avec Helga pour un café.

  • L'appartement est en effet " petit " mais rien n'y manque
    La vie y est facile , l'accès aussi, le quartier sympathique et tranquille ; et , fait très important , quand , dans la journée , on est constamment dans le bruit de la ville , il
    est très agréable et reposant de pouvoir dormir dans un endroit SILENCIEUX , puisqu'en effet , les bruits de Paris
    ne parviennent pas " impasse du Rouet."
    Je recommande cet endroit aux personnes qui veulent pouvoir récupérer la nuit
    De plus le style " atelier d'artiste" est dépaysant !
    Je noterai 8/10 , à cause de l'éloignement du centre , mais pas pour le logement lui même : j'ai vécu longtemps dans un bateau .... Et j'y ai un peu retrouve l'ambiance !!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Helga's home. From the first contact with Helga she helped us to feel confident that we had made the right choice for accommodation.
    She helped us with every aspect of our stay and answered questions, gave directions and advice as to where to go to get around and enjoy Paris even more.
    The apartment is small and cozy. We had absolutely everything we needed and more. The kitchen is well equipped and the laundry was a handy addition.
    The location is very close to transportation: buses and the Metro were moments away. We also did a lot of walking and found that it was very easy to find everything we were looking for from our home base. The shops and bakeries were very close and convenient. We enjoyed the area and felt quite safe.
    The apartment was perfect for a couple to stay for any length of time. We were so impressed with the creative way that the space was utilized ... for a small apartment it had a larger feel to it.
    Everything that we needed was there for us to use and so we did not have to pack a great number of extras to bring with us.
    We would like to thank Helga so much for all her help and hospitality.
    Our stay in Paris was wonderful!

  • I stayed in Helga's atelier in Alesia for a month and it was charming, tiny and sometimes not as convenient as I might have wished because of its size, but it was well located, very close to the metro and walkable to the center of town, if you like walking and have comfortable shoes. Helga herself was the soul of friendliness and very helpful in many ways. I found the neighborhood wonderfully real, not over run with tourists and full of necessary service places at reasonable rates. Wonderful bakeries, a full service supermarket, hair and nail salons, pet stores, open air markets for fresh fruit and veg, cheese and seafood - you can tell I love French food - cafes, brasseries and restaurants of every nationality. I had a great time and recommend Helga's atelier for one or two intimates. If you want a real slice of the Parisian life, here it is!

  • Helga's atelier is amazing. It's tiny but every detail has been carefully thought. It offers all the facilities you can think of, plus several ambiances (kitchen, living room, bed and reading area). I had a great time there. The neighbourhood is lovely and a large supermarket is only 2 min away. Also, living by the boulangerie "Dominque Saibron" turned me into a croissantolic...
    But what really captivated me about this place was the fact that it is quiet, green and charming in the middle of the huge city of Paris. Simba, the neighbours' cat is quiet a friendly character too. Thanks Helga!

je suis artiste photographe et vis entre Paris et le sud de la France. Je préfère voyager léger moi-même, ainsi il y a tout sur place. Je lis beaucoup, en plusieurs langues, écris, aime l'informatique qui fonctionne ou le chaos dans l'art ou la musique - par contre je déteste le chaos dans les choses censées fonctionner et trop d'harmonie dans le décor ou dans l'art.
