The space

The flat has the 1940's caracteristics of a Beiruty flat, spacious with high ceilings and airy with lots of light. It has a large living room, a dining room , a cozy kitchen, 3 bedrooms, one bathroom and an extra toilet.
It has two very pleasant verandas, one of them is above a busy street, the other faces the morning sun and the quieter neighborhood.

I share my time between London and Beirut and rent my flat while I’m away, partly because I love sharing spaces and stories. I'm a set designer so the flat is full of objects bought here and there with their particular stories. It sometimes changes its aspect depending on a new coup de coeur found in a market in Argentina, India, or other travel destination, a props returning from a shoot or theatre play, a beautiful designer piece or a plant to add to the collection.

The flat is situated in Gemayzeh, one of the few remaining street in Beirut with a traditional architecture. This said, it comes with a few anachronisms. Please don't expect a modern flat, The charm and heritage architecture of this flat comes with downsides, such as being on the 3rd floor without elevator.

It is quite an ideal location for someone on holiday wanting to explore the city. You are at the doorstep of a very large choice of restaurants and bars in the street (it can get noisy for those sensitive to sound, or travelers looking for silent retreats), a stroll away from Mar Mikhael, and very close to the highway that takes you South or North.

Nathalie was wonderful and very responsive throughout my stay. The flat is gorgeous and in a great location in Gemmayze. Walking distance to many shops and restaurants. It's a third floor walk-up, but as long as your suitcases aren't that heavy, it's no problem. Can't wait to go …
