About this listing
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...
