This modern, fully furnished and carefully decorated 67sqm apartment accomodates up to 5 people in a bedroom and a double living-room.
Located in the trendy Rue des Martyrs, it's close to many tourist attractions and a short walk from Gare du Nord.
Located in the heart of the 9th district, this beautiful apartment has been decorated with an eye for detail, featuring well chosen art work and contemporary furniture.
On the 3rd floor (with elevator), typical of Haussmannian architecture, with its elegant wooden floor, high ceilings, mouldings, large fireplaces, big windows, it comprises a lobby, a bright living room with 2 comfortable double sofa beds, a dining table and chairs, a bedroom whith a double bed and spacious closets, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a tub, a separate wc/powder room.
Despite being located in one of the bobo hotspots of the city, it's very quiet at night, as the flat is overlooking a beautiful private courtyard and not the street.
The nearest Metro station (Notre-Dame-de-Lorette) is 2 mn away.
Almost every tourist site can be reached walking (assuming you enjoy walking a bit).
Bikes (Vélib) can be easily rented in the street for a few euros a day.
You can park nearby (less than 5 mn walking) in a secure parking : Parking Saint Georges, 20 rue Clauzel.
The keys will be handed to you directly at the apartment.
Towels and bed linens are provided.
No doubt this apartment will give you the ultimate parisian experience!

Interaction with Guests
I make every effort to welcome all my guests in person on arrival.
During the length of each guest's stay, I can be contacted by phone (also on Viber and WhatsApp), text messages and mail and will always be happy to answers to any questions or requests in French, English, German or Spanish.
Situated on the upscale rue des Martyrs, it's particularly close to Montmartre (you can see the Sacrée Coeur from the doorstep and the Moulin Rouge is 5 mn away), the musee du Louvre and the famous Opéra Garnier.
There you can enjoy the shopper's mecca of Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, among many others.
The street is very busy with traditional food stores (boulangeries, charcuteries, boucheries, wine cellars,fromagers), fruit and veggie stores, organic food stores, trendy cafes and restaurants.
The nearby theaters and museums (I strongly recommend the Musee National Gustave Moreau, a hidden gem of a museum, formerly the artist's home and studio, and the Musee de la vie Romantique, where you can enjoy tea in the little, old fashioned garden, away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets) make the whole neighborhood very lively.
The nearest Metro station (Notre-Dame-de-Lorette) is 2 mn away.
The Gare du Nord (Eurostar; for trains from England, Germany, Belgium and Holland) is only a 10/15 mn walk away.
The Gare de l'Est (Luxembourg and Germany) is a 10 mn taxi ride away (or a 20 mn walk away).
The Gare de Lyon (Switzerland and Italy) is 30 mn away by subway.
The Gare Montparnasse (Spain) is 20/25 mn away by subway (and direct to Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, the nearest Metro station).
The Roissy/Charles de Gaulle airport is a 45 mn taxi ride (45/80 euros, according to time and traffic) or 1h train ride away (direct to Gare du Nord, RER C, 9.10 euros/person).
The Orly airport is a 45 mn taxi ride (45/80 euros) or 1h train ride away (Orlyval plus RER B, direct to Gare du Nord).
From Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport:
From terminal 1 - Take the CDGVAL automatic train and get off at the stop 'Terminal 2 Gare' then follow
the signs for "Paris by train".
From terminal 2 - Follow the signs for "Paris par train"
From terminal 3 - Take the walkway (about 250 metres), then follow the signs for "Paris par train"
Take the RER B in the direction Paris and get off at Gare du Nord.
The walk from Gare du Nord to the apartment will only take you 10 mns : walk down Rue de Maubeuge and almost at the bottom make a right on Rue Choron, which brings you directly to rue des Martyrs.
From the Notre Dame de Lorette metro station, walk down the Rue de Châteaudun in the direction of the traffic, then turn left onto the Rue Flecher. When you get to the intersection, at the back of the church, continue straight ahead onto the Rue des Martyrs.
The fewer the rules, the better the stay!
However try to keep the apartment as clean and tidy as you fund it and respect the neighbours' quietness.
I try to be as flexible as possible regarding arrival and departure time!
However a good organization between us beforehand is vital to make everybody happy.
Paris is a big city and of course there are scams that target tourists. While none of my guests have experienced any problems and the neighbourhood is safe, please take reasonable precautions for your security.
DO NOT let anyone enter the apartment even if they claim the right to do so (for example for electricity or from any alleged authorities) without contacting me first.
I will always be glad to help you out if you have any questions during your stay and will answer in French, English, German or Spanish.
Charles was an excellent host. He was extremely helpful even organising transport from the Airport. Staying in the Apartment was a wonderful experience. It was in a great location with wonderful shops, cafes, restaurants, bakeries and near the Metro.
Would definitely stay again. Do go visit and enjoy.
A very nice apartment very central in the heart of Paris with all needed facilities and good communications via bus and metro in short walking distance from the apartment. Perfect for 4-6 persons. Our host was very flexible and arrange the apartment keys for us directly at request when we arrived from the airport via taxi.
Charles was a wonderful host! He arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and was waiting for us when we arrived. He gave us all the necessary house instructions and some neighborhood recommendations as well. His place is lovely and we loved the neighborhood! Would recommend staying here for sure, it was a great experience. Thanks Charles!
Charles was a great host. He was very accommodating to myself and four friends that stayed in the apt and we were provided with everything we needed. It was awesome to have such amenities like a washer/dryer. He was very responsive via email and made the trip incredibly easy. Great location too!
The apartment is in a fantastic location - the street it is on is lovely, and full of beautiful shops (boulangeries, patisseries, cafes etc). We were very comfortable there during our stay and Charles was friendly and helpful and very quick to respond to messages.
Asunnon sijainti on mahtava, Charles on mukava isäntä, ja paikka on remontoitu hyvällä maulla. Pariisilaistunnelmaa aidoimmillaan, lähellä hienoja nähtävyyksiä ja hyviä ravintoloita -kaikkea mitä hyvältä matkalta voi odottaa.

After university studies (and a degree in marketing), I always found time to travel extensively and for long periods of time.
I realised then how one appreciates to find a place where you feel at home, live as locals do; a place where you can enjoy breakfast with your choice of music in the background, where you can shop the local foodstores and cook a beautiful diner for everybody; Well, even better if this place costs you roughly half what a hotel would cost you (for a fiftht of the space)!
I love literature and art, which probably reflects in the modern decoration and the many books on the bookshelves.
Travelling in many parts of the world made me quite laid back I guess; I just expect my guests to have a wonderful time in Paris and just want to come back as soon as possible....
