Our charming duplex apartment with exposed wooden beems has a typical parisian feeling. There is a master bedroom and in the open space there is a sofa convertible to a double bed. Wifi, fully equipped kitchen and central location.
Bright, charming duplex apartment at the fourth and fifth floor of a 19th century building. The apartment is spacious (73 square meters) and touched by an amazing light.
Upstairs you will find an openspace with a fully equipped kitchen (including a dishwasher, a microwave and an oven). Also a sofa (convertible to a double bed), a projector with a big screen, an electronic piano, and a table seating 4 to 6 people. There are also 2 writing tables placed in two different areas of the open space.
Downstairs: the master bedroom (with a french-sized double bed) and a large bathroom with washing/drying machine, a bidet and a sizable bathtub (170x75 cm). There is a WC on both floors. Floors are wooden throughout the whole apartment except kitchen and WCs.
There is high-speed wireless internet connection. The building has no lift or elevator. I provide bed linens and towels for each guest.
Despite being really central the street is very quiet, few cars are allowed to go through. The apartment being on the last two floors of the building you will not be disturbed by any noise.
Guests will have access to everything in the house.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will have the sole use of the apartment. I am always reacheable in case they need something.
I love our neighborhood mainly because is still authentic. Parisians live here in opposite to more touristy areas.
Since the hype and lively Saint Martin Canal neighbourhood is at less than 10 min walking I know that a I can spend fun nights out being really close to home. You can reach Montmartre, the Louvre and the Opera Garnier on foot in 20-25 minutes.
The street itself has nice bars, restaurants a supermarket ( a great organic store is just around the corner) and a true parisian market (Marche` St Quentin) is just down the road.
There you can buy amazing products: vegetables, cheese, fish…

The apartment is conveniently located at less than 5 min from Gare de l’est station and both metro stations Gare de l'est (lines 4, 5, 7) and Poissonniere (line 7). Also it is only 10 min walking distance from Gare du nord station and metro/RER stop (lines RER B, RER D, 4,5) and Both Orly airport and Charle de Gaulle airport are really convenient being directly on RER B.
Other Things to Note
This is the apartment where I live with my husband, an house full of strange objects coming from all over the world, books, spices. Everything touched by the amazing light. Every detail tells a story. Our apartment is spacious and beautiful. We travel with airbnb ourselves and we love the airbnb spirit. We like to host people from around the world, hoping that in our home they will create memories as pleasant as ours.
Stay in my home as if it was yours and I'll be happy.
If you let me know in which station/airport you'll arrive I will suggest you the best way to reach the apartment. For the check- in we try to be really flexible. We will arrange a meeting after your booking and there will be someone waiting for you. Please note that if you need to check in late (after 20.00) you'll be required to pay a 25 euros fee. Once there you will find a printed " house guide" where everything about the house will be perfectly explained, so it will be easy to use the kitchen tools, the bathroom...
I kindly ask you to leave kitchen and bathrooms in a decent state.
Remember: there is no lift.
This truly was a charming apartment in a great neighborhood. I thought it was a good deal as my friend and I had plenty of space, two bathrooms, and a great kitchen to work in! It is convenient to the metro, right next to a great market and walking distance to the Canal area. We even had a little dinner party with some parisian friends and they expressed how lovely and stereotypically French it was with the wood beams! I only wished we could have used the projector, but otherwise a perfect stay.
Siamo stati ospiti in occasione del Capodanno con il mio compagno e due bambine. La casa è ben equipaggiata, wi-fi con ottima ricezione, cucina funzionale, riscaldamenti autonomi ed efficienti (per gli italiani da evidenziare la presenza del bidet!!!). La casa è centrale, vicinissima a due fermate treno/metro. Quartiere pieno di negozi e supermercati. Chiara, la proprietaria, è stata molto gentile e prodiga di suggerimenti. Anche se a distanza, non ci ha fatto mai mancare il suo supporto. Insomma, senza ombra di dubbio, una scelta da consigliare! Noi ci ritorneremo....

This charming, comfortable apartment is in an ideal location within walking distance of the Gare du Nord. Chiara was a wonderful host. I would happily stay here again.
This property is very cute. I love the decor and the location is great. there are shops and restaurants nearby as well as bus stops and the metro. Monica met us at the apartment and was very friendly. However, I will say that I enjoyed the property more than my husband. He is 6'4" and had some clearance problems in some areas. But, he liked the property enough to say that he would be happy to stay there again.

I like tea, good books, food, photography, fine things and unexpected trips. New York stole a piece of my heart and London has been a dream since i was 12 years old. I would never have imagined that i would ended up living in the city of lights but here it is, i'm a parisienne now :)
