About this listing
This large flat is a convenient place for a Paris visit: 2' from the metro station.
It's very clean (a cleaning lady works after each stay), quiet and clear: you'll feel there at home.
You'll have many practical info with my self-made mini guidebook.
Located in the heart of Paris Belleville, this duplex apartment is very convenient for 4 persons with its 2 separate bedrooms. It can host up to 6 people with the confortable convertible sofa in the livingroom. It's equipped for babies.
Very large for a parisian flat, you should feel confortable in the place. It's very clear with an open outlook. It dominates a courtyard which makes it very quiet: really important in this lively area!
I don't leave permanently there anymore (I used to!) but I still often come to the flat : I arranged the place to welcome people as good as possible.
The place is very clean, a cleaning lady works there after each stay.
I'm a traveller myself and I used to work for French guidebook companies : I know what is arriving in a new city...

Amazing and charming place! We loved it! You can even see a little bit of the Eiffel Tower at night out the left window. Decent neighborhood, close to subway stop. It's on the 5th floor with no elevator, which is worth it for the apartment and view, but take note if you have mobility issues. Recommended!
François a été parfait, nous ne l’avons malheureusement pas rencontré mais il avait admirablement tout organisé et nous avions aussi un contact sur place en cas de besoin! L’appartement était comme l’avait décrit François, bien équipé, agréable avec une ambiance très chaleureuse au point que l’on avait l’impression d’etre chez un ami! Bref, nous avons passé de très très beaux moments. Une chose incroyable, l’appartement de François est d’un calme absolu , nous n’avions pas l’impression d’etre en ville ...! Le quartier est aussi très agréable, le petit parc de belleville très sympa et surtout le quartier derrière le parc semble un petit village en dehors de dynamique de Paris! Les possibilités pour les achats, les restos, les bars, sont très chouettes et très proche de l’appartement, de plus François laisse dans l’appartement un catalogue avec toutes ces informations, nous confirmons ses choix, très bons!
Francois was extremely accessible and gave a lot of advice such as practicalities and restaurant recommendations. He was available at all times for any questions before and during the trip.
We were very happy with the apartment. We had everything we needed and felt very at home. The view of Paris is wonderful, roof tops and sky straight across to, I think St Cloud. Le Tour Eiffel sparkles at night between two chimney pots. The street has walls of constantly changing Grafitti art and I suspect lots of galleries will open again in September although the fascinating ceramic shop next door was open. The area is suprisingly, as François describes, very quiet at night. Although one lovely evening we enjoyed listening to a little troupe of singers backed by guitar and a clarinet down in the courtyard. Sadly they packed up well before summer bedtime! The Patisserie across Rue de Belleville supplied us with splendid cakes and bread which I am really missing! A super holiday! Thank you François.
It is unfortunate that we did not meet Francois. We really enjoyed his apartment and everything is nice，Francois is so considerate and he prepared an overall information booklet which is very useful! The transportation is convenient. Belleville is a place full of artists!
Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans l'appartement. Il est calme, ensoleillé et dans un quartier rempli de restaurants (nous recommandons An Di An Di rue du Liban à 500 m de l'appart). Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
François Wong is a very proff host. Easy to get in contact with, and he have thought about everything! The flat is very nice. Clean ond stylish. After dark you can take a glass of good vine in the relaxing area while the light from the top og Eiffel-tower flashes the walls. Nice place to stay when you can't join the night life. Urban and cosy!
