The Neighborhood


Live like a real Parisian. The location is very central, between Place de la Bastille and Place de la République, near the Place Léon Blum.

Just 1 block away, there are the small shops where we do our daily shopping (boulangerie, cheese shop, butcher, fruits/veggies, etc.), and there are two large supermarkets on the Place Léon Blum, two blocks away. There is a small supermarket just around the corner.

Getting around

The closest métro station is "St. Ambroise" (line 9) which is one block away. Very close to the beautiful Père Lachaise cemetery and a 10 minute walk from the Marais district (in one direction) and 5 minutes (in the other direction) from the Oberkampf area (with great bars, restaurants, and cafés).

  • Lorin was very quick to respond to any texts I sent with questions about the apartment. The location was great, in a quiet and calm area of Paris. Our group especially loved being so very close to the metro stop, less than one half a block away. The apartment was large, sunny and clean. We loved the furnishings of the apartment. The two flat screen tvs were nice as well. Lorin has meticulous instructions that show a person how to work everything. There was plenty of hot water and the water pressure was always good. There were also suggestions of restaurants and supermarkets. We were impressed with the quietness of the apartment and the apartment building. We felt at home and safe. Lorin lets you know exactly what is expected of the guests during their stay. It was a great stay in Paris.

  • Lorin's apartment was very much as described, with beautiful furnishings and the wonderful comfort of what is obviously a family home. Clean, spacious, safe and fully equipped with everything you will need from towels and linens to kitchenware, dishwasher, washer and dryer, LCD and DVD.

    Its 11th arrondissement location is in a wonderful neighborhood with an abundance of pâtisseries/boulangeries, boucheries, cafés and even supermarkets. The Saint-Ambroise Metro station is a two minute walk from the apartment and will get you to anywhere you need to be in Paris. Olivier was excellent--in communication with us upon arrival to the airport and met us promptly at the apartment, helping to familiarize us with the apartment and use of the equipment.

    Lorin was available and responsive throughout and helpful with any questions we had. He provides a detailed document for use of the apartment that includes some recommendations for places to eat and visit.

    Highest recommendations to Lorin and Olivier. We would absolutely stay in his apartment again.

  • This is THE place to stay in Paris! All my communications with the host were exceptional and easy. He is responsive; English is his native language; and he's willing to please to make you happy. The apt is in the 11th Arrondisement and is located in a lovey residential neighborhood without tourists. It's one block from the Paris Metro (a pleasure to use); the neighborhood boulongerie and patisserie are terrific; fresh baggets and pastries every morning. The apt is large; dining room, living room, kitchen, patio to dine on; 2 bedrooms; wifi and TV work. The entire experience is like living as a local in Paris in a comfortable apt. The management fellow was precisely on-time both on arrival and departure. Living amongst nice furniture and furnishings makes this a great find. By the way, the beds are comfortable and the shower has the best water pressure in Paris. I recommend this apt without qualification.

  • Olivier greeted Suzann and me and did an outstanding job of acquainting us with the spacious apartment. Everything worked including the much appreciated clothes washer and dryer. The living room and dining area have a total of 3 sliding glass doors making the place very light and airy. Communication with Lorin, the host, was always easy, not to mention his meticulous written instructions. We used the Metro and taxis and they were just a block away. I am 6' tall and close to 200 lbs, and gave up yoga years ago and had no problem with the small French shower.
    We're coming back again Lorin! Thank you

  • A truly great place to stay in Paris. This is a very large apartment for the price and a real value for your money. It's completely equipped and charmingly furnished. The neighbors were quiet (and friendly, when we crossed paths). You couldn't ask for more from a neighborhood in Paris–the restaurants, boulangeries, patisseries, etc are excellent and well-priced. The two metro lines that run near the apartment are both less than 3 minutes away. Lorin was attentive and responded quickly at both during the booking and while we were at the apartment. We'd love to come back next time we're in Paris–we've stayed in different spots around the city, and this one is hard to beat. No complaints–highly recommend.

  • We were very satisfied with this apt. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was convenient to all the stores we needed and very close to the metro. Would highly recommend to anyone. Lorin was very helpful and a pleasure to do business with.

  • Very nice appartement near to the metro, nice neighborhood with many shops, close to Marais (10 minutes walking).

    December 2013
  • My wife and I spent a week in Paris on our honeymoon and the apartment accomodations were perfect. We definitely plan on staying at Lorin's apartment again in the future. The communication, location, and size of the place would be hard to beat!
