An old Bohemian style 60 square meter duplex under the roof top, with a small terrasse directly facing Notre Dame, for a maximum of three persons
Our triplex in the center of Paris, is the perfect place to stay for couples with a bohemian spirit. It is located in the heart of the Latin quarter area.
We love our very special place, with a small balcony, an indoor balcony with a direct view on Notre Dame. This duplex (in fact this is a triplex) has memories and a soul... We sub-let it sometimes, when we are traveling.
The main level is an open space living room with a bar and small opened kitchen with a bar (cooker and oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, etc). The main room is located upstairs with cable TV, DVD player facing a queen size bed. The bathroom has a real bath tube, and a second toilet. There is one washing machine in the toilets at the main level. We also provide a high speed wifi internet connexion.
An additionnal bed for a third person is available in a small room at the entrance level.
Just have a look at the photos !
to high speed WiFi and to everything else you will need to feel like at home

When we can, so when we are in Paris...
Maubert-Mutualité is our small village in the Latin quarter area. You will find many asian restaurants (Vietnamese, Cambodian, Thaï, Japanese) and of course many others. Our place is located in the middle of a triangle of 3 major subway stations including Saint-Michel. This area is also well known for its numerous "art et essai" cinemas.
You also can walk 10mn to Pompidou museum or 15mn to Le Louvre.
The "Marais", the Paris beach (in July-August), Museums, shops and restaurants.
You will be in the center of everything...
Subway, Bus, RER are very close (any Stations and Airports easily and quickly accessible).
From Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport, or from Orly Airport, you will take the direct RER until "Saint-Michel Notre Dame" then it's a 5 minute walk.
Our place is smoke friendly... on the balcony outside
Although I booked at the last minute while Philippe was out of town, he was still nevertheless able to organise checkin/out flawlessly. The flat is as the photos shown - a delightful spread of books, art and small charms. The space is well suited for three persons. I slept like a child and had not one problem of any kind with the flat.
Great New Year's holiday in Philippe's Gypsy Duplex.
Philippe was there to welcome us and brief us when we arrived, and he kindly checked up on us by SMS during our stay and was very helpful indeed.
The apartment was fine for our family of three, and the location is excellent. You don't get tired of looking at Notre Dame and hearing the bells ringing.
Philippe's place is the exact opposite of a dull and sterile hotel room and bares witness of a politically and environmentally conscious person, who travels around the globe.
The atmosphere in the apartment inspired us to read Tintin au Tibet and visit the nearby Le Lhassa restaurant to have tsampa soup.
We had a wonderful time.
The apartment was the perfect place to explore Paris from - the location was excellent, and the flat itself was full of character, we could have spent days in the flat enjoying the view and the art and books!
Philippe's apartment is a wonderful as the pictures look, if not more spectacular. He was there to meet me and my mother on arrival and made us feel instantly at home by showing us around and where everything was. He was very helpful, quick to communicate with at all times and also checked up on us to make sure we were happy.
His reassurance made our trip that much more relaxing and I would definitely recommend staying here. Hopefully one day I will return.
Thank you Philippe!
We stayed a weekend at Philippe's apartment . Just like on the pictures , we shared through this stay his "gypsy" universe .Philippe wasn't there to meet us but everything was well organised to make us feel comfortable. It was perfect ! We definitely come back and hope to meet our host
Das Appartement war exakt so, wie auf den Fotos vorher zu sehen. Es ist sehr persönlich eingerichtet, mit zahlreichen Erinnerungen aus vielen Ländern.
Die Lage ist fantastisch, der Blick auf Notre Dame ist aus allen vier (!) Fenstern möglich, über den kleinen Balkon kann man morgens gut die Aussentemperatur testen. Die Umgebung bietet alles, von Shoppingmöglichkeiten über unzählige Restaurantalternativen und ist natürlich perfekt geeignet als Startpunkt für die kulturellen Highlights von Paris. Wir waren eine Woche in Paris und haben das Appartement zu dritt genutzt, das kleine Zusatzzimmerchen hat nicht mehr als Bettgrösse, ist aber als dritter Schlafplatz perfekt. Das Doppelbett ist sehr gross. Philippe hat stets zügig auf unsere Emails vor der Reise geantwortet und sich regelmässig während unseres Aufenthalts nach unserem Wohlbefinden erkundigt. Ein- und Auschecken war zeitlich sehr flexibel. Wir waren begeistert und würden es wieder buchen.
Philippe's is a magical and romantic place. It's in the heart of the Latin Quarter, yet is quiet with sweeping views of Notre Dame. You are surrounded by artifacts, art, and objects from Philippe's life that have been lovingly curated and create a warm and magical space. I cannot recommend it enough.
Philippe was very attentive - checking in regularly to assure we were comfortable and had what we needed.
Bohemians and documentary filmmakers we are a couple, we have been living in this duplex for more than 16 years. We travel a lot worldwide, so we sub-let our marvelous place for a few days or more, to people with an arty bohemian spirit, willing to spend some time in Paris for their activity.
