There is a computer in the living room with a large screen to watch DVDs or the TV (several French and international channels are available), wifi and unlimited access to the Internet. You can give free phone calls to French landlines and to several foreign countries. The piano can be used only during the day (not at night because the neighbours want to be quiet...)
Nice and central location in Paris, between Montmartre and Opera, close to buses and several subway stations, shops everywhere in the surroundings.
Available for short term periods especially when I am travelling (minimum 2 nights, maximum 2 months)
You will get a lot of light in this flat located on the last floor of a small and quiet building.
Guests have access to all the equipments, kitchen tools, computer, hair-dryer, etc. User-guides are available for the guests once arrived and welcomed.
The neighborhood is very nice. Families and artists like the location, everybody loving shopping in the famous rue des Martyrs, going by foot to the numerous theaters or to cinemas on the Grands Boulevards, easy to walk to the touristist area of the Sacré-Coeur Montmartre (5 minutes) or to the Grands Magasins (Galeries Lafayettes 10 minutes)
The flat is very close to Gare du Nord station (10-15 minutes by foot) where all RER B trains coming from Paris airports stop.
You need only 5 minutes walk to reach one of 3 subway lines close to home (Anvers station on line 2, Cadet station on line 7, Notre-Dame-de-Lorette station on line 12).
The bus no 85 stops in front of the building and drives you directely to the Louvre Museum, the Seine River, the quartier Latin, the Luxembourg Garden.
The Bus no 42 stops 3 minutes away down the street and drives you directly to Concorde, The Champs-Elysées, The Eiffel Tower.
A lot of other bus stops are very close (buses no 26, 32, 54, 43, 54, 67 stop at less than 5 minutes walk)
Their are available bikes (Velib station) and cars (Autolib station) 1 minute walk from home.
And public parkings lots if necessary at 5 minutes (Parking Saint Georges rue Clauzel or Vinci Park Anvers)
The building is very quiet, and I ask to my guests to be quiet too... not playing the piano between 7 p.m. and 9 a.m., wearing slippers to walk in the flat (I provide slippers of different sizes...)
For the same reason, I prefer not welcoming young kids and I request not organizing parties...
I've been living in this flat in central Paris since more than 30 years ago. My 3 children were born there. They went first to school in the same street, rue Rodier, then in the neighborhood. When they became students and were still living with me, I reorganized the rather large flat to get spaces for each of us. Now I welcome guests now and then.
I'm a scientist, travelling a lot, either abroad (I worked in Ivory Coast, in South Africa, in Morocco) or in France, going rather often to the countryside South-West of France to visit my family.
