The space

The apartment has a living room, an open bedroom with a double bed, a fully-equipped kitchen and a bathroom. All rooms, except the bathroom are naturally lighted during the day by three big double windows.
It is fully furnished, with fresh towels and sheets. Wifi internet access and phone calls to landline numbers in USA and Europe are included. There is a fan for the summer.

The living room has a cozy convertible couch that can be used as a regular bed for an additional person, and a dining table. The bedroom is right next to the living area, separated just by a wall. It has a double-bed (and a new mattress, 140X190cm), a wardrobe (a part of which you can use) and a small desk.
The kitchen is open to the living room. It is small but functional (fridge, 2 hotplates, oven/microwave, small coffee maker, blender, as well as dishes, pans etc.). The same goes for the bathroom. There is a walk-in shower and a washing machine.

The apartment is located on the 5th floor in an old building on the side of the street. Unfortunately there is no elevator.

The neighborhood

The apartment is centrally located in Belleville, close to shops, restaurants and bars. There are also many supermarkets and bakeries and two open markets two times a week (Thursday and Saturday boulevard de la Villette, Tuesday and Friday boulevard de Belleville). There is also a swimming pool 5 minutes walk away accessible to the public.

Belleville is a very lively, popular and multi-ethnic neighborhood. You can enjoy a typical Parisian day out by having your coffee or a glass of wine in the local cafés. These are very popular among the people of Paris continuing a tradition that goes back in the days of Edith Piaf (she used to live in the area and sing in Follies, a nearby local bar that deserves a visit). You can also walk in the narrow and beautiful streets of Belleville all the way up to the ‘Park de Belleville’ (15mins walk), visit young artists’ galleries. If you want to explore this part of Paris more, you can go to the picturesque and animated district of Menilmontant, have a snack or a picnic at the park of Belleville or at the park 'des Buttes-Chaumont’ (15mn walk), or visit the trendy bars of canal st. martin and Obercampf (10mn).

Getting around

Belleville metro station is served by two lines (2 and 11). Both lead to main tourist attractions and commercial/high street places (‘Le Marais’ and ‘Chatelet’ 10mn, ‘Gare du Nord’ 15-20mn, ‘Père-Lachaise’, ‘Montmartre’, ‘Champs Elysées’).
If you like cycling there are two Velib stations right next to the metro station.

Other things to note

Feel free to read any of my magasines or books, just try to leave all things where you found them.

In case you are staying for more than 3 days, watering the few plants would be deeply appreciated.

The flat was exactly as in the pictures. It was sunny and comfortable and right next to subwaystation Belleville which was very nice. The contact we had with Alkisti was nice and she responded quickly. The day of arrival a friend of her was there to welcome us and Alkisti had a great map full of information about Paris and the neighbourhood with a map with great reconmendations. The area is very cosmopolitan and had some great asian restaurants.

This flat is absolutely beautiful! Lots of sunshine and very clean and modern with all mod cons. Alkisti arranged for her friend to meet me at the flat on arrival (even though I was arriving late) and also very kindly left information and suggestions of things to do in Paris. The location is fantastic too - a 10 min walk from Republique at most and from there it's an easy walk to the Marais which is a great part of the city to explore. I definitely would recommend it!

Our stay in Alkisti's apartment couldn't be more perfect. Everything was as described. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It is also very well decorated. :) The neighborhood is very calm and has supermarkets and bakeries near, so we had some awesome Parisien breakfasts. Although we didn't met Alkisti in person, she was super helpful and gave us a lot of information about the neighborhood and tips on where to eat and have fun. In her apartment was also a folder with maps and more info. All in all, we couldn't ask for a better host and apartment. We absolutely recommend Alkisti's apartment, and if we ever go back to Paris, it is going to be our first option again. :)

I have studied archaeology and architecture and I am currently working as an architect in Paris. When I have free time, I like being with good friends, going to the cinema and traveling (during which I rent my apartment). Having stayed in Paris for several years, I can give you several tips and information about the city and the neighborhood.
