In the spring and summer, locals flock in droves to the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin to picnic and strum guitars. Cafes and quirky boutiques flank the water and iron footbridges. On Sundays, two streets running parallel to the canal, Quai de Valmy and Quai de Jemmapes, are reserved for pedestrians and cyclists—perfect for renting a bike and seeing the city from a fresh angle. Another possibility is to take a tour of the canal by boat. Visitors of all ages should find something to love alongside the Canal Saint-Martin.

The host, Matt, was forthcoming. He met us at the apartment and showed us how things work in the apartment. He speaks very good English and left us his mobile number just in case we need assistance at any time. On the last night of our 7 day stay, the heater was not working. We called him and he gave us instructions over the phone on how we could get the heater started again. Thanks for that.
A very convenient location and though the apartment is about 200 years old, it is homey and comfortable with modern bathrooms and all the modern convenience. I love the doors that opened to the balcony, provides good fresh air. An organic store just a few doors away. A bakery and supermarket round the bend. Metro is nearby. Walking distance to food of many nations - Istanbul, Japan, India, Vietnamese, Chinese, American Pizza, French Creperie, etc. Spoiled for choices!
We had a very nice stay in Paris. The apartment of Lea is luxurious as promised. We were nine and we could live there for 5 days very comfortable. Thank you very much for this accommodation.
Fantastic apartment, great location, close to Metro. Apartment owners warm, friendly, welcoming, very responsive and proactive. We were a large family of 8 from Australia and UK and this apartment afforded us a very comfortable stay in Paris. Would recommend and will seek this apartment if visiting Paris again. We experienced what it was like to be Parisians for our visit of 4 nights. Many thanks.
What a great place! Finding beds for six adults in Paris is challenging, but this place was perfect. It's also gorgeous and in a great location.
Ich habe das Appartement für meine Mutter gebucht. Sie und Ihre Freunde waren sehr happy mit der Unterkunft und empfehlen diese uneingeschränkt weiter!
We enjoyed a comfy and well located appartment during our 4 days stay in Paris. The apartment is close to the metro, restaurants, shops and bakeries.
We stayed nine people but I would recommend it for eight.
Communication with Lea was easy and she provided the necessary info on request.
I am happy to recommend the apartment to others travelling to Paris.
