About This Listing
If you want to stay somewhere that's not your run-of-the-mill rental apartment and you enjoy great design and being in beautiful surroundings, this place is for you. We have worked hard to create a place that has all the flair of a hip hotel but with the comfort and ease of having your own apartment.
We are situated on the second floor of a small 300 year old building (no lift). The communal corridor has been sympathetically restored and the building is clean and quiet.
With 3.5m ceilings and large windows, it feels very spacious for it's 32sqm size. It has been decorated with a mix of antiques and modern convenience and luxury. The beautiful, large kitchen table means you'll enjoy eating in as much as exploring the fantastic local restaurants.
Perfectly located in the centre of Paris. Within 10 mins walk of Pompidou Centre, Louvre, Pont Neuf, Le Marais, Opera, rue Saint-Honore and much more.
This is the part of Paris to be in if you like access to all the tourist sites without being in a 'touristy' area.
We have many great local markets, shops and restaurants, (many of which we have sampled and left a list of recommendations in the flat.)
The famous market street rue de Montorgueill, with it's fabulous food shops and bistros, is just down the road.
Three different Metro lines close to the flat and Gare du Nord (where the Eurostar comes in) is just 5 minutes in a cab or three stops on the Metro.
All bed linen is good quality 100% cotton and pillows and quilts are goose feather and down.
As we come sometimes to enjoy a relaxing time in Paris, we tried to provide the flat with all the amenities which we thought was useful for comfortable stay.
Washing machine, with a dryer integrated, dishwasher and oven, iron and iron board, fans, wifi, DVD/CD player…

We know you will take good care of our apartment but accidents happen and unfortunately, they sometimes cost money to put right. The security bond will cover any damage or loss of equipment or furniture in the apartment. This may include specialist cleaning of rugs or furniture if stains or excessive soiling occurs (i.e if you spill red wine on the sofa). Where loss or damage is such that replacement, cleaning or repairs make it necessary to cancel subsequent bookings, compensation for these bookings may also be deducted from the security bond.
By making a reservation with us you declare that you are covered by your own insurance for any direct or indirect injuries that may occur on the premises and will not make any claim against the owners relating to these. Your personal belongings are not insured by us while inside the flat. We recommend you take travel insurance that covers you for loss or damage of your personal belongings.
Terms of occupancy:
The rented property is a private residence and you agree to indemnify the owners for any damage or loss to the property or its contents that occur during your stay. Violation of the occupancy limit of 4 adults will result in the forfeiture of all monies and termination of occupancy. We reserve the right to inspect the property during your stay. Further, you agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the building and refrain from any activity which interferes with the quiet enjoyment of its other residents. Owners are not liable for failures of any equipment, systems, or appliances, as major repair problems cannot be foreseen. Problems should be reported to the concierge.
This apartment is strictly non-smoking. Evidence of smoking anywhere in the apartment may result in a deduction from the security deposit.
We love this flat and we hope you’ll enjoy being here as much as we do.
We’ve spent a lot of time and effort on the details that we think make it the ideal place to stay in Paris.
If you think there’s anything missing or things we can do better, we’d love to hear your feedback.
It’s important to us that this flat can continue to be enjoyed by us and all our guests. For this reason, we ask that you be mindful of things like not smoking and taking care of our beautiful antique table (there are tablecloths and a pot rest in the second drawer).
Most of all we want you to have fun — play music, make noise and come and go as you please — but while you’re doing so, please respect our neighbours as you would at home.
The apartment is modern, clean and well equipped with everything I needed for my stay.
It is well located for restaurants, shops, bars and all that Paris has to offer!
Maïté was the perfect host; warm, friendly and informative.
I would definitely stay there again.
Maite was extremely helpful leading up to my arrival in Paris, and was accommodating to my last minute changes due to issues with the Eurostar. The apartment was a delight, from the location to the decor, and provided amenities; it even looked better than the pictures. I enjoyed my stay in Paris and will highly recommend this apartment.

About the Host, Maïté
I do guest and rental welcoming services under my own company since 2008. What is it ? We help owners and renters, before, during and after their arrival.
I love meeting new people, wherever I meet them, to talk about their culture, their life, their city, their travels.
I travel myself quite a lot, having always funny and great experiences (Lapland in winter with no electricity and water, round trip in US and Canada - balloon fiesta festival, opera in Seattle,…). Travels help me to realize how lucky I am, to get out of my comfort zone, to learn new languages and culture, and to be more humble and empathic to people. I realize also when I get back home how much I miss fresh baguette and salted butter.

We can serious things without taking ourselves seriously.
A good day is a day with laughs.
Hope we will have the pleasure to meet !
Je fais depuis 2008 de l'intendance et de la conciergerie dans l'immobilier touristique. Oui ? Nous aidons les propriétaires à louer leur appartement et j'aide les locataires avant, pendant et après leur arrivée.
J'adore rencontrer de nouvelles personnes tout le temps, qui parlent de leur culture, leur ville, pourquoi ils viennent ici, où ils ont voyagé.
J'essaye moi-même de voyager le plus possible. En dehors de me permettre de respirer, ça me permet de mieux comprendre les besoins et requêtes des autres voyageurs, avec beaucoup plus d'empathie.
Je me suis aperçue que je suis pétrie d'habitudes et que je peux difficilement me passer de beurre salé avec du pain frais et du lait d'avoine.
