Belleville is a colorful, multi-ethnic neighborhood and also home to one of the city's two Chinatowns.
A fairly large and popular outdoor market is held there every Tuesday and Friday along the Boulevard de Belleville, where many local Île-de-France farmers sell their produce.
During the 1980s Parisian artists and musicians, attracted by the cheaper rents, the numerous vacant large spaces, as well as the old Paris charm of its smaller streets started moving there. Many artists now live and work in Belleville. Some abandoned factories have been transformed into art squats, where several alternative artists and musicians, such as the band Les Rita Mitsouko began their careers.
The iconic French singer Édith Piaf grew up there and, according to legend, was born under a lamppost on the steps of the Rue de Belleville. A commemorative plaque can be found at number 72. Belleville is prominently featured in the 2007 biographical film of her life, La Vie En Rose.
Within the neighborhood there is the Parc de Belleville, which ascends the western slope of the hill and offers a panoramic view of the Paris skyline, and the nineteenth century romanticism Parc des Buttes Chaumont is only ten minutes away.

  • We unfortunately didn't meet Emmanuel during our 2-day trip to Paris but based on the communication with him before and during the reservation, he makes sure his guests feel welcome at his Belleville apartment. He always responded promptly to emails and even accommodated our early arrival time. I would recommend reading closely the email he sends out right before you arrive - it contains a lot of useful information such as door entrance codes, Internet passwords, etc. Thank you for your hospitality!

  • Emmanuel is a great communicator and very generous with information about the neighborhood and recommendations. The apartment was in good shape when we arrived, looked just like the photos. All the bathroom and kitchen fixtures and appliances were functional and the view from the window is beautiful.

    The neighborhood Belleville is pan-Asian and "bohemian" artsy, reminded us of Pilsen / Bridgeport / Chinatown in Chicago where we live. Very fun scene! Lots of cheap and tasty food all up and down rue de Belleville and live music on the weekends. If you get off at the Pyrénées stop to get to this apartment, you can see the Eiffel Tower in the distance. It's a dirtier part of town, which might make it not for everyone, but the side street the apartment was actually on was cleaner and more peaceful.

    The room feels private because you can have the windows open and there is only an old church across the street. Also the building felt very secure with 2 passcodes and a key, all good locksmithing :)

    My wife Christy and I enjoyed staying here and would recommend it to anyone!

  • Our stay in Emmanuel's place was very pleasant and comfortable. Emmanuel is a great host and very friendly. We never had any trouble communicating with him and he provided a lot of great info about the neighborhood, restaurants, etc. The apartment was exactly as described and provided everything we needed for our two week stay in Paris. Belleville was great and getting around was easy. We would definitely recommend Emmanuel's place to friends.

  • Die Wohnung ist klein aber sehr gemütlich und mit allem notwendigen ausgestattet.
    Haben die bunte und multikulturelle Wohnungsumgebung mit vielen (für Paris preisgünstigen) Lokalen, Bars und Cafes sehr geschätzt.

  • I liked very much my experience in Emmanuel's apartment. It is situated in a very sympathetic and lively neighborhood, with immigrants of all origins and alive bars and restaurants. The apartment has everything you need, and you can really feel at home in it.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed at Emmanuel's flat this winter and had an amazing time. The bed is incredibly comfortable, and the apartment is very nice and clean. Emmanuel was very responsive and check-in and check-out were very easy.

    The location is nice too. Paris is very large and spread out, so being in a neighborhood like Belleville was really nice, and a bit of a departure from the rest of the city. It was really easy to get around from the apartment too. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Studio très calme, propre. Quartier animé et très bien desservi par les transports. Je recommande !

  • Appartement très mignon, dans un quartier très sympa (beaucoup de restos asiatiques). L'arrêt de métro de Belleville dessert la ligne 2 et 11, ce qui est très pratique pour se rendre n'importe où rapidement.

    Le voisinage est sympa, et on dort très bien dans le lit dEmmanuel, ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas.

    Le check-in et le check-out sont très pratiques et pas du tout contraignants.

    Une étoile en moins pour le bruit des voisins du haut, le dimanche après-midi, à part ça j'y retournerai volontiers

  • There are two Metro station to this place, If you are leaving from the flat, use Bellevill; if you are going back to this flat, use Pyrenees. Thus always walk back on downhill. The place does not have elevator, prepare to climb about 4 levels, it's fun. Host and his flat is cool, super super (website hidden) the way, there is a grocery store on your way to this apartment from Pyrenees, they sell meat only, and they have this BBQ Lamb rib, about 5 Euro for 500g, awesome.
