We are a couple, both raised in Paris, and we love this city. See you soon!
Amėlie’s duplex apartment is stylish, comfortable and homely, secluded in a private and secure courtyard. The apartment block is typically Parisian while the interior of the flat is tastefully contemporary. The main living area is on the top floor with roof top views of the surrounding area and is serviced by both a small lift and a stairwell.
The local area, nestled between the hip Belleville, Rėpublique and Oberkampf neighbourhoods, reflects the diversity of multicultural Paris. Part of Rue Bichat is undergoing regeneration, the friuts of which will be interesting to view in a year’s time.
At the top of the street is a delicious artisanal boulangerie and patisserie, and supermarkets are plentiful. A short walk from the apartment are many good bars and brasseries but the recently and beautifully refurbished ultra cool Le Floréal eatery and cocktail bar with its Mondrianesque façade is at 73 Rue du Faubourg du Temple.
The 400 year old Hôpital Saint-Louis and internal gardens and courtyards are well worth a visit as it is a hop, skip and a jump from Rue Bichat. Close by is the Saint-Martin Canal, and the Bastille and Marais are a 20 minute walk away.
There are two metro stations (Goncourt and Rėpublique) are very close by but I found the RAPT Line 96 Bus (Gare Montparnasse ↔ Porte des Lilas) excellent as it takes you to the Right Bank via the Bastille, Marias and Hôtel de Ville.
On arriving at the apartment we were greeted by the wonderful housekeeper Crisanta who was very helpful and welcoming. We also gladly received a complimentary bottle of wine and a welcome pack from Amėlie.
My guests and I would be very happy to spend our vacation at this beautiful apartment again.
Amelie's family were really nice guests, they took good care of the apartment! I'll be happy to host them any time again!
Amélie and her family stayed with us for one night. The family was really lovely and we were really delighted they chose us.
Their two children in particular had great fun with our dogs Hazel and Heidi!
They all seemed very happy with their stay and with what we offer, and for our part we would certainly be absolutely delighted for them to come back to us in the future! Highly recommended.
It was a pleasure to have Amelie and her family stay at the cottage. They were wonderful guests, with a great attitude, and made the most of their time on the island. Everything was left very clean and tidy.
Amelie and her Family where fantastic guests. You couldnt ask for more friendly, respectful and interesting people. The children are so well mannered, creative and a bliss to be around.
Good to have you her and I wish all of you a great time in Scotland.
Amelie and her family stayed in my flat for a couple nights and it was an absolute pleasure! They are a very friendly family, they looked after my flat and left it clean and tidy. I highly recommend them to any other hosts and it would be a pleasure to host again. Many thanks!
Having Amelie and her lovely family stay with me was a pleasure, friendly down-to-earth people that I was comfortable with right off the bat...would welcome them back anytime!
