After going up some stone & wood stairs, discover the indoor terrace & outdoor balcony overlooking the garden
Come and spend relaxing Parisian moments in a beautiful and comfortable 3 bedroom duplex apartment in an original house located in magical settings (former convent in a cobble-stoned street creating a village style atmosphere in the trendy area of the 20th arrondissement, nearby the Père Lachaise cemetery).
Ideal for 1 or 2 families (as the children's room can fit up to 4 kids or teenagers), this very quiet and large apartment (2 levels of 70 square meters each) also has a in-door terrace opening onto a secured balcony (with a table & chairs making it possible to enjoy the fresh air) overlooking the garden & paved courtyard shared with the other families living opposite. There are many outdoor games (such as football, golf, badminton...) and facilities (picnic mat, sun chair...) made available to guests.
When you enter the apartment, you will discover a very large double living/dining room area and a design bar separating the semi-open fully-equipped modern kitchen (dish washer, micro-wave & traditional ovens, kettle, toaster, large fridge & freezer...).
The cosy atmosphere of this main room is enhanced by the wooden beams & floors as well as by the homey decor surrounding a protected fire place.
On the same level, a small corridor (with many cupboards and a laundry area with washing machine & drier) leads to one of the 3 bedrooms. This one has its own en-suite bathroom with 2 washbasins. The toilets are separate.
On the first floor, enjoy the full comfort of 2 other bedrooms (1 with a large double bed & the other with 2 single beds & an extra double mattress if necessary), 2 other bathrooms (1 with bath & toilet and 1 with a large shower) and a cosy office/library space (with large band internet, wifi, cable TV, DVD/Dvix player with USB port and electric piano).
This completely charming and unique duplex, situated in a rare pedestrian village area of East Paris, is located just round the corner from the very "in" Mama Shelter hotel/bar/restaurant (prior bookings highly recommended!) & La Flèche d'Or, which is one of the most hype concert places of Paris.
Many shops, restaurants, supermarkets, theaters & cinemas nearby and less than 20 minutes away from the heart of Paris (Nôtre Dame, Hôtel de Ville, Centre Pompidou Modern Art Museum) or other well-known sites such as Montmartre, Eiffel Tour, Champs Elysées, Bastille... thanks to 5 different very close bus routes (n°26 or 57 & 64 or 76, as well as the PC2, soon to be replaced by the ring-road tram) & 3 different metro lines (n° 2-Alexandre Dumas, 3-Gambetta or 9-Maraîchers) at approximately 10 minutes walk.
There are also 3 very close-by Velib' bike stations as well as one Autolib' station (on the Rue des Pyrénées).
If you come by car, the closest public parking open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, very safe and cheap, is located in the parallel street named Rue du Clos (details available on-line).
A comprehensive and detailed booklet about the households hints and appliances is provided to guests upon arrival, along with a map of Paris and other useful documents.
When it is wet outside, we usually take our shoes off just in front on the covered entrance at the top of the outside staircase...
Tout était parfait comme la description de la maison. Le quartier est très calme, un petit village au cœur de Paris! Et la maison est dans un ancien couvent entièrement rénove à l'écart des tumultes de la ville!
Nous étions 3 couples, la maison est très spacieuse, chacun avait son intimité surtout qu'il y a 3 salles de bain et nous avions plaisir à se retrouver dans l'immense pièce à vivre!
Un très bon we, moi et mes amis recommandons cette maison!
Notre hôte a été parfaite
Stephanie went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our time in her home. The place is fantastic in a nice quiet neighborhood. There are plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and bakeries within walking distance. The location is great for getting into the center of Paris and also for getting to Disneyland with Metro stations within a 10 min walk (with young kids). We had a great time at the house and would definitely stay there again the next time in Paris if available.
Maison chaleureuse très sympas tout comme l’hôte. Nous avons passé un très bon week-end entre amis, merci !
La maison est très confortable et l'accueil chaleureux.
Tout était parfait!
We were a group of 8 friends who stayed at Stephanie's home for 3 nights during late december and over the new year. Stephanie played a wonderful host by providing us details about her house and the various amenities in and around it. I would like to thank her a lot for arranging our transportation to and fro from the airport. Her foresight and helping nature helped us have a smooth transfer to her home. We were received by her cousin with an enthusiastic and energetic smile. The home is very nice indeed and well furnished. All the rooms are spacious and well organised. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment to enable cooking. The only hitch was that the restrooms on the upper floor did not lock properly. We met Stephanie during checkout and regret that could not spend much time with her since we had to rush to catch our flight. We certainly had a great time staying at the fabulous house.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stephanie's home. The house was spacious, clean, warm (important given the temperature in Paris at the time), and comfortable. Overall, the location was very good with easy access to shops and restaurants, but a bit away from the center of the city. Stephanie went out of her way to accommodate us after the host for our original booking cancelled on us at the last minute. She was there to greet us when we arrive and carefully walked us through the details of the house and the neighborhood and check in with us during our stay to make sure we were OK.
Welcoming, friendly and open-minded person, thanks to an international globe-trotting lifestyle!
I'm very sociable and love to provide my guests with any helpful information. I look forward to welcoming you in my cosy home and making your stay as enjoyable as possible...
