About This Listing
If you have kids and want to visit Paris that's the place to be! It's a very calm neighbourhood with cute tiny public-garden, the apartment is very child-friendly (3 kids are living here) and the main room is amazing with a view on the roofs of Paris
This is an awesome artist studio located near rue Daguerre in the 14th arrondissement.
It's very bright. Zenital, south and north expositions. Very calm and safe. 7th floor. View on the Paris roofs.
Very kids friendly. Ideal for a family. They won't be able to break anything and will have thousands of toys to play with. Two kid-beds in a room (expandable and can even fit adults if you don't mind narrow beds :) ) and a big bed in the other room.
A king size bed for the parents is located in the loft part of the appartment.
Kitchen has everything to cook and the bathroom everything to relax.
Wifi & iMac.
It's located at Denfert Rochereau subway station. Direct from the two Paris airports.
There are lots of shops in the neighbourhood : bakery, cafe, restaurants, bookshop, drugstore ... It's very closed to the famous rue Daguerre.
It will be a pleasure to welcome you, show you around and make sure you settle in comfortably.
Price is all included (electricity, water, internet, sheets, towels...) with environment friendly cleaning service.
We had a great experience staying here with our 3 children. It was the authentic Parisian experience we were looking for. We loved the view of the rooftops and the amazing natural light from the windows. We were pleasantly surprised how accessible the city was by the Metro station at the end of the block and lots of eating options right downstairs. The apartment had great wifi and a computer for the kids which was a big advantage. With the world cup playing I would have loved to have had a TV to watch but was able to get it on the computer anyway. We highly recommend to anyone wanting to feel like a local while visiting.
I agree with all the positive reviews about the Studio apartment. I stayed there for a week with three boys aged 10 to 14 and we had a great stay. The WIFI and computer in the apartment worked well which is important if you have kids that age. It was also important for me to get work done in the evenings. If you're looking for an authentic Paris neighbourhood experience then it's a great place to stay.
Odd but cute little family apartment under the roofs of Paris 14e, steps from rue Daguerre, Denfert-Rochereau and the Catacombes.
I lived in Paris for 10 years and know the city well. However, I was not familiar with this neighborhood. Rue Daguerre has all the markets, supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants etc you can imagine. Denfert Rochereau is on the fast and reliable RER B, which means that you will be close to everything in Paris.
The apartment itself is on the 7th floor, accessible through a small (2 person max) old-school elevator which unfortunately was often busy and was even out of service for a whole night and half a day. Great view of the roofs of Paris. The apartment can get quite hot in summer in the afternoon with no curtains to escape from the sun.
The configuration of the apartment is a little odd, but ok for a family with kids. A kid's bedroom (1 bed) connected to another kids's bedroom (2 small beds with plenty of toys). Plus a living room with a bed corner on the floor. I didn't mind sleeping on a mattress on the floor, but my main issue was with the bathroom being only accessible by entering the kids' bathroom.A small kitchen with basic cooking equipment - not really suitable for doing gourmet cooking, but enough to make pasta or re-heat some of the great food you can buy down the street in Daguerre.
The communication with the owner Olivier went very well. Instructions for check in/out were very clear, and the apartment was very clean with everything working.
We had a great stay in this apartment. We are a family of 5 and everyone had a comfortable bed to sleep in and ample room for dining. The kitchen was well equipped and Olivier was very thoughtful in providing us with a fresh baguette, a bottle of wine and cereal for the kids on arrival. We loved being on the 7th floor with the balconies and views. The location is convenient and central with the metro a short walk from the apartment. There is a great choice for cafes, restaurants and shops. Olivier was very easy to communicate with and even though we didn't have the pleasure of meeting him, he kept in contact with emails and mobile messages :))
Our stay aT ARTIST TUDIO IDEAL FO FAMILIES was a real success.First of all we found Olivier Mevel a welcoming host.He came to meet us at Denferrt-Rochereau when we arrived from CDG airport by RER,led us to his apartment,showed us around and went away having left us his phone number in case we had a problem.
We found the apartment very pleasant,full of light coming from a glass panel in the roof.The accommodation was adequate for our party of 5 people. I,the grand mother,had a room of my (website hidden) son and his wife had a double bed in a recess off the living room and the children (8 and 3 ) had a twin bed-room full of toys which kept them busy (email hidden)e kitchen with its big fridge freezer ,two very efficient hotplates and microwave was (email hidden)e bathroom with its bath and good shower suited (website hidden) also had a washing machine in working order which we used.There was a clothes horse in the flat but we preferred using the very efficient dryer of the laundrette at the foot of the building.
We liked the area.The street in a residential area was very quiet .The front to each building with its individual carvings was worth looking at.Two streets away was the amazing rue Daguerre with its many restaurants,creperies and fascinating food shops where you could buy fresh products.
The transports to the centre of Paris were excellent.A 5 minutes walk took you to the metro and buses .The Luxembourg garden and Montparnasse were within walking distance if you liked walking.The RER took you straight to the airport.
We all thought we would gladly go back to Olivier's flat.
We had a lovely stay in Olivier's apartment. The location is perfect - not too far from the centre of the city, and with fantastic food shops just a street away. The apartment is comfortable, light, and very easy for families.
Olivier is a welcoming and kind host, and we would recommend his apartment highly.
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit bei Olivier und haben uns schnell wohl gefühlt. Schlüsselübergabe etc waren völlig unkompliziert. Das Quartier ist wundervoll und supersicher. Ideale Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Gegend, superleckere Delikatessenläden. In der Wohnung ist alles vorhanden, was man so braucht, die Wohnung ist ruhig. Die Heizung funktionierte zum Glück auch (denn wir hatten leider einen kaltenFrühlingsanfang erwischt). Leider war die Wohnung nicht wirklich sauber als wir ankamen: angestaubt und haarig und es gab keine Schränke oder Regale wo wir unsere Koffer entleeren konnten.
