The Space

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 (email hidden) 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).

  • We had a lovely time at Stephanie's charming house. We were 7, two couples and three young women, and we fit very well. The house was clean, well-organized, completely equipped, roomy, with plenty of counter and closet space, and easy to live in. Metro and bus stops not far away.

    The kitchen is especially good, with everything you could need to cook anything, We ate lunch out and dinner at home, and I had no problem cooking real meals.

    A terrific place to stay.

  • Lieu charmant, déco soignée, au calme, proche des commerces et ambiance "village". Un petit coin de paradis en plein Paris, suffisamment rare pour être précieux. Idéal pour un séjour en famille. La maison est très bien équipée, l'accueil de Stéphanie est sympathique et chaleureux. Elle prend bien le temps de nous expliquer comment fonctionne chaque appareil. Bref, que du plus, à recommander.

  • La maison de Stephanie est très agréable a vivre, atypique, bien agencée et entretenue. L'environnement est calme et plein de charme avec la cour et les rues pavées aux alentours.
    Stephanie est par ailleurs une personne disponible, a l'écoute et serviable.
    Nous avons passé un excellent week end !!

  • Overall we had a good stay at Stephanie's. We were a party of 4 adults and 4 young teens. The one room that was supposed to sleep 4 kids didn't quite work out for us as one of the teens was a girl. In that room, the beds and mattress on the floor were not very comfortable but the two proper beds in the other two bedrooms were fine. As well, there was only one "real" shower. The other two bathrooms contained tubs with handheld showers but you couldn't take stand up showers in those. Maybe this is typical in Paris. Stephanie's house was lovely but perhaps a little far from the main tourist areas. Transit is closeby and relatively easy to figure out but for those who want to be closer to shopping, sightseeing, etc.... The location is not great. Stephanie is a great hostess and helped us out making sure that our shuttle taking us back to the airport arrived. Thank you for the great experience Stephanie.

  • La casa estaba en muy buen estado. La casa dispone de todo lo necesario para pasar unos días estupendos en París. Nos recibió una amiga de la anfitriona y fue muy amable. La casa es ideal para dos familias con niños.

  • Stephanies apartement is located in a lovely place of Paris. There's enough space for 6 to 8 persons with very comfortable and charming interior. Its very easy to communicate with Stephanie and we spent a great and funny weak at Paris. Lots of nice restaurants and bars are located just arround the corner and metrostation within a 7 min. walk!

  • We were a group of four adults and three children aged 6, 4 and 2 who stayed in Stephanie's lovely home for 7 nights. We felt immediately at home in the apartment, which was both practical for our needs and beautiful. Everything functioned well and it was a pleasure to do cooking in the well-equipped kitchen.
    Stephanie was very helpful and kindly assisted us with arrangements both before and during the visit. The written instructions regarding the apartment and the neighbourhood were clear and well thought and if we ever had any questions, Stephanie was available within a couple of minutes.
    We enjoyed the neighbourhood which had a village feeling to it. We followed Steph's tips and found a number of enjoyable restaurants in the area.
    All in all we had a memorable holiday and would return any day!

  • We had a wonderful stay in Stéphanie's house. Everything was perfectly prepared for us. The house fitted us very well, a lot of space for us 7. We instantly felt home there and after each day-tour we made we were really happy to get back. The neighborhood was ok, many shops and restaurants in walking distance. The 8-10 minutes walk to the Metro was easy and from there we got to all locations within 20 minutes. Stéphanie was a very nice host, we had a very warm welcome and can fully recommend a stay in her house. We would definitively stay there again. Thanks for everything.
