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.
Emmanuel's apartment was very cozy, charming and pleasant. It had a beautiful view, and it was in an interesting vibrant neighbourhood. It was very convenient to get around, do groceries, eat at good restaurants, (website hidden) was just the right size and suited our needs perfectly.
It was clean and comfortable.
Emmanuel was always available to answer questions even if we didn't get to meet him.
Me and my friend had a beautiful, unforgettable stay in Paris! The flat is cozy, close to the metro and located in an area, that is worth recommending. Nice food, nice people, what else you need?
Neigbour hood is noisy at night with the pub and the location is not very safe ... And no air con or fan ... And the didn't reply my email until last minutes...didn't get to read and last the mattress sink in the middle
Emmanuel's apartment is perfectly located, nicely decorated and spacious enough for one or two people. It has everything you need and I had a really nice time there. I recommend the neighborhood especially, for me I think it was one of the most authentic and lively parts of Paris. On Sunday when everything else is closed this area is still alive and happening. Emmanuel is a great host, super attentive and easy to coordinate with.
Mi amigo y yo estuvimos alojados en el apartamento de Emmanuel durante tres noches. No conocimos al anfitrión en persona, pero no hubo problema en que nos diese las llaves, ya que dejó a gente encargada de que nos las entregasen en un bar cercano al sitio donde se encuentra la casa. Lo encontramos todo en un estado excelente, todo es idéntico a las fotos, por lo que no tenemos ninguna queja. Además antes de nuestra llegada nos proporcionó información que nos sirvió de gran ayuda a lo largo de nuestra estancia. El barrio en el que se sitúa se encuentra muy bien comunicado, por lo que se puede llegar a los distintos lugares emblemáticos de París sin problema alguno. A algunos de ellos se puede llegar incluso andando. Ha sido nuestra primera experiencia con airbnb y sin duda hemos quedado totalmente satisfechos. Repetiríamos sin pensarlo.
Beautiful flat in the most beautiful part of Paris to stay in as a visitor. Emmanuel's communication was prompt and covered everything we needed to know, including some great local food recommendations. Thank you!
Super séjour à Belleville. Le studio d'Emmanuel est parfaitement équipé et bien isolé du bruit de la rue. Rien à redire !
