The Space

I rent a room with double bed in a charming 12 m2 apartment in the 12th arrondissement.
The room is very comfortable , overlooking a quiet street . It is furnished with a double bed, a wardrobe, a desk and equipped with a flat- screen TV and Internet access . Bathroom with shower and bath and toilet are separated and shared .
A continental breakfast is included and served in the dining room

The apartment is located on the 4th floor with elevator, in an unusual and very bourgeois central area . All kinds of shops are nearby, including a very good bakery. Dausmesnil the market ( place Félix Eboué ) takes place two times a week on Tuesday and Friday.

You will be close to Bastille and its famous Opera (15 minutes by metro) , Bercy Village and the Palais Omnisport (20 minutes walk) .
The Bois de Vincennes is about fifteen minutes , it is the ideal place for walking and jogging .
Very well connected, metro lines 6 and 8 are nearby , stop Daumesnil .
Stop the bus No. 46 is just down from my house and it allows direct access to the Gare du Nord , Gare de l'Est and the castle of Vincennes. At 500 meters , bus No. 29 joined the Saint Lazare train station through the Marais.

You will discover a district of Paris airy , quiet, where you can breathe , with wide avenues , a middle-class population, but also very diverse, without the nuisance of too touristy ,
But at the same time a very central area where we went quickly to Louvre , Champs Elysees, Eiffel Tower , Latin Quarter , Montmartre .....

Lives in Paris for several years and is now retired , I am happy to inform you about the beautiful places , monuments and restaurants to discover but also places more unusual and less known to tourists .

Hoping to bring you all the comfort and well-being , you are entitled to expect for your stay. and this in a warm atmosphere
All nationalities are welcome and the opportunity for me to improve my English or American

  • Staying with Philippe was extremely relaxed and pleasant. He is an excellent host, kind and helpful. Also the bed was comfortable, the facilities spotless. His delicious, real coffee with fruit juice and tartine (bread and jam) was a good way to start the day! The neighbourhood is leafy and pleasant - we enjoy walking but, if you don't, the buses that serve the area are excellent and the metro very close. All in all, very highly recommended!

  • Philippe was a gracious host and we found his place homey, comfortable, safe, and very convenient to everything we wanted to do. He had food for us to make continental breakfasts and allowed us to use the washing machine for our clothes. We highly recommend this hospitable host and his flat for 1 or 2 people.

  • Just finished a wonderful two day stay at Philippe's apartment. It is close to the metro which made getting around easy. Philippe was helpful with directions. Only had 1 change to get to CDG airport with the luggage we had made life easier. The apartment was very comfortable. We made use of the easing machine which was handy as this was coming to the end of the trip.
    We would definitely love to stay here again if we come back to Paris

  • A perfect part of Paris and a perfect host. Philippe is a kind host, adept in English as well as his native French. The homey location is perfection, just a quick walk to the metro, in a neighborhood not overrun by tourists, but filled with terrific restaurants, cafes, and markets. In other words, you can explore Philippe's neighborhood on that day when you have had enough of the tours and want some quiet contemplation. On our return to Paris, we would definitely reach out to Philippe first.

  • We can only agree with the many positive comments. Such a nice man and he seems to genuinely like sharing his home. Very helpful with advice and information. Sharing breakfast with him was great. Would stay again with Philippe and highly recommend his place for a night or a week or whatever.

  • Philippe was a fantastic host! He welcomed us very kindly and showed us to our room, which was very comfortable. His apartment is very cute and homey. We shared the bathroom with Philippe, since it is his apartment, but we never had any issues. Philippe prepared breakfast for us, during which he sat and chatted with us, which was absolutely lovely. The apartment is located very close to the metro, with which you can get anywhere in the city. Highly recommended!

  • Philippe was so, so wonderful! He was kind and welcoming to us, ate breakfast with us every morning, and gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants, shopping, food, and anything else we asked. He was interested in hearing about us and we were about him, too, so we had many wonderful conversations. Philippe is our friend now- we are sending each other recipes and I look forward to keeping in touch with him. The apartment is also extremely beautiful and we slept so hard on the comfortable bed.

  • Philippe the host is very friendly and approachable. We stayed 3 wonderful nites at his apartment, he even prepared early breakfast for us on the last day, cos we have to catch an early train at Gare de Lyon. Location is great, about 5 mins walk to metro Daumesnil stop, line 8. very easy to get around visiting main attractions in Paris.

  • Philippe was a charming host and seemed to really enjoy our company, sitting with us for breakfast and chatting with my nephew and me. He really did us a big favor letting us do a small load of laundry there, he even folded it up and set it on our bed - an unexpected and very appreciated extra service! I especially enjoyed his neighborhood - lots of bakeries, a big grocery store and several smaller markets, cafes and restaurants nearby.
