The Space

You will not be disappointed by your stay in our place! Jennifer, my wife, and I are here to make your trip pleasant and memorable.

We offer you to stay in a private room in our apartment.

-- THE APARTMENT --
We live in a nice 3-room apartment of 54m2, which we can define as typical Parisian. Located on the 6th floor, (with an elevator until the 5th floor), you'll be directly in love with the building and its full wood stairwell (see picture).

Each room of our apartment has a parquet floor in old wood, an old chimney in marble and some moulding on the celling.

As you can see on the pictures, we've decorated our apartment with different paintings and hand-picked furnitures to make it cosy and warm.

The bathroom had a bathtub so you'll be able to choose between a bath and a shower (we can even provide you some soap for a foam bath).

The Kitchen is big and fully equipped to cook delicious meals.
Breakfast can be served in the kitchen, in the dining room or in your room. We'll be happy to offer you a variety of possibilities for your breakfast, depending on the season and your tastes.

-- YOUR ROOM --

The apartment is always clean (we have a housekeeper coming every week) and ready to use at your convenience (you can use the apartment's bathroom, kitchen and dining room when you want).
If you are tired of visiting Paris and want to have some rest at home, we offer you some activities : tv + wii, internet access, books in French and English, board games etc.

Your bedroom is private. It's usually the living room but the sofa has a real bed underneath, it's really comfortable, perhaps more than lots of "normal" beds !

This room is really light, with the sun coming directly into it. Lovely!

-- DINNER --
This is a unique option we'll be offering you => eat with us! In France, we have something called "table d'hôte" which is a dinner option given to people sleeping at "Chambres d'hôtes" (bed and breakfast). We thought we would get inspired from this to propose a dinner option on AirBnB for people sleeping at our place.

At your convenience during your stay, we'll be happy to cook for you and eat with you. We'll define the menu with you, but we want to make you discover wonderful local meals such as duck confit, gratin dauphinois, zucchini velouté, pâté & "charcuterie", cheese selection etc. We'll arrange the menu upon your special needs (vegan, allergies etc.) and upon seasons and what we find at our local market. (See pictures for some examples)

The price of the dinner will vary between 15€ to 30€ per person, and will include an aperitif and wine (from our own cellar under the building).

-- NEIGHBORHOOD --
Our apartment is located in a cosy and safe district close to Montparnasse and the Eiffel Tower. This neighborhood is really convenient : you have at least 5 great Boulangeries for example (shops you'll of course want to visit) in less than 3min walk, but also plenty of restaurants, bars, small shops and even a Movie Theater right at the corner (located on place de la Convention). Of course, we know our neighborhood so we'll give you our favorite addresses if needed.

At the bottom of our building is Metro station Convention (line 12) and if you walk 5min you can easily reach the line 8. Expect 15-20min with these lines to reach Paris historical center. Using Velib (a popular bike sharing system) you can reach the Eiffel Tower within 15min, a wonderful ride!

Nearby are also Porte de Versailles Convention Center, Montparnasse Tower and Train Station, George Brassens & André Citroen parks.

-- WHO WE ARE --
We can define ourselves as very social, but we also know how and when to stay in the background to let you enjoy your trip.

We used to travel and live abroad (Jennifer in Scotland and the USA, Cédric in Germany) and we're fluent in English, German and Spanish.

Jennifer is working in marketing for the food industry, Cédric is a web entrepreneur. We love to travel, meet new people, cook, practice outdoor sports (running, slackline, rollerblading) and of course, share with foreigners.

-- CONDITIONS --

The total price per night is listed on AirBnB. If you're interested in having our dinner option, let's chat about it per email (the price, as explained above, depends on what you'll want to eat).

Check-in time is flexible, but we'll need to agree on an timing before your arrival.

Towels and sheets are provided.

If you need anything or if we can help (ordering taxi, keeping your luggages, etc.) we'll be happy to if we can.

  • Cedric and Jennifer were excellent and attentive hosts throughout our stay. The room provided was spacious, comfortable, and private. We had a fantastic time in Paris, and our dinner with Cedric and Jennifer was definitely one of the highlights of our entire trip. I would enthusiastically recommend staying with them to anyone interested!

  • Cedric and Jennifer are wonderful hosts - my stay in Paris was exceptional thanks to them. You need to stay with them if you plan to be around, especially if you are traveling solo. The room they are offering is very comfortable, complete with great wifi access, a tv, and other amenities. This was my first airbnb experience, and I can honestly say that I am going to stay away from impersonal hotel rooms during my travels from now on. Make sure you ask them to host you for dinner - it will be your most memorable Paris meal experience! Cedric is a great cook!

  • Von Anfang an boten uns Cédric und Jennifer alles was es für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt in Paris, der Stadt der Liebe, braucht. Sie waren immer mit Rat und Tat für uns da und liessen uns aber auch genügend Privatsphäre. Das Abendessen mit ihnen war ein wahrer Genuss: Die Atmosphäre war sehr entspannt, das Essen köstlich und sehr liebevoll zubereitet.

    - kurz: Cédric und Jennifer sind die perfekten Gastgeber!

    Cédric and Jennifer offered us everything we needed for a perfect stay in Paris and even more! We really enjoyed the open, friendly and especially warm atmosphere and the helpful advice they gave us. The dinner option was an amazing experience: The food was delicious and lovely arranged.
    Cédric and Jennifer are helpful, caring and easy-going - wonderful people and perfect hosts!

  • Mi estadía en Paris ha resultado muy placentera. Cédric y Jennifer son dos personas sumamente amables y serviciales. Desde mi llegada, tenían preparada toda la información necesaria sobre la ciudad y alrededores, sumamente útil para todos los que viajamos. Además, el desayuno ha resultado muy rico, he probado los dulces típicos parisinos y me han encantado. La ubicación también es muy buena, ya que en pocos minutos se arriba al centro a través del metro. Gracias por todo!

  • Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in Paris. Und die Entscheidung bei Cedric und Jennifer zu wohnen war perfekt. Sie sind sehr nett und haben eine wunderschöne Wohnung in einer wirklich sicheren Gegend. Die Metrostation liegt gleich daneben und man kommt schnell zu überall hin in Paris... Ebenfalls gabs jeden Tag tolles Frühstück mit ganz frischem Brot! Würd es jedem weiterempfehlen!

  • Всем добрый день! Мы с мужем любим путешествовать, гостиницы уже не привлекают - хочется узнать страну немного изнутри, а так как мы очень молоды, хотя у нас трое взрослых детей, воспользовались возможностью пожить с совсем молодыми.Немного беспокоило плохое знание английского, но Седрик сразу снял напряжение, предложив самому поучить русский. И действительно, всё оказалось понятно, удалось приятно пообщаться, а бытовые вопросы даже не успевали возникать. Всё было удобно, комфортно и свободно.
    Будем рады снова воспользоваться гостеприимством Седрика и его очаровательной жены Дженифер. Людмила и Алексей.

  • Cedric and Jennifer were wonderful hosts. Their home is very nice and my partner and I felt very comfortable during our short stay. The neighbourhood is nice and very close to the Metro to get to other parts of Paris. The street noise was a little loud at times but only in the mornings when we were already awake for our day. We would stay with Cedric and Jennifer again!

  • This was my very first time using airbnb.com and, thanks to my hosts Jennifer and Cédric, it will not have been my last. I felt welcomed and at home from the minute I entered their apartment. Despite my late arrival, Jennifer and Cédric took some time to get to know me showing genuine interest. They prepared dinner the next day which we enjoyed together in a very relaxed and convivial atmosphere. I can highly recommend staying with them and opting for the dinner option.

  • Cedric & Jennifer are excellent hosts. They are very generous with their time & very helpful in every respect . The apartment is very clean, the room of good size & the location ideal. Breakfast provisions are also very good. Our recommendation could not be higher. We would also highly recommend taking up Cedric's offer to cook an authentic French evening meal. This evening will remain the highlight of our entire trip not only for the food but also for the company. It was a most enjoyable stay & certainly we would stay there again.
