The space

This is a fact. Some guests have rented this quiet and comfortable apartment, spring and fall, for the last seven years. We like all our guests to feel at home here.

The apartment is 400 sq ft (37 m2) one flight up (no elevator). We have AIR CONDITIONING, rare in a century old building like ours. We have owned the apartment for 12 years and the last total renovation was in 2010. You'll notice the walls are white, pure white, because I am a photographer and sometimes do photo shoots in either this apartment or the studio with patio next door, or both. The polished, hard wood floors, molded plaster-of-Paris ceilings and two marble fireplaces add distinguishing touches.

All Paris is easily accessible by metro (3 stations at a 3-7 minute walk): Ménilmontant, St Maur, Père Lachaise, crosstown buses 96 & 69, bicycle (Velib) or walking. Nearby sites are Père Lachaise Cemetery (Jim Morrison!), Bastille, trendy Oberkampf (100+ restaurants/bars within a 15 minute walk). The Tuesday and Friday morning street market, fifty meters from our door, are just the place for fresh fruit and veggies, flowers, fish, meat and The Cheese Lady! A fully stocked mini-market is a 2 minute walk. An internationally known celebrity couple in the cinema (who shall remain unnamed for their privacy) are close neighbors. From our point of view however the best thing about our neighborhood? This is the unpretentious Paris where real Parisiens live.

The apartment is well equipped with fridge/freezer, induction hob and extractor fan, microwave oven/grill, clothes washer/dryer. Tiled bathroom with walk-in shower and good pressure, iron, hair dryer. Real bed in separate bedroom, not foldout, is very comfortable with good reading lights. Two comfortable folding chair beds in living room for up to two extra people (with 4 inch/10 cm latex). Two closets, one with safe.

FREE TELEPHONING to over a hundred principal countries, high speed wi-fi, collection of DVDs. Linens are provided by us but guests are expected to clean the studio at departure (not the linens!!!) because we live 2 hours out in the country at our "Champagne B&B". We encourage guests to split their time between the two!

Another feature of this apartment, it is on the same landing as the studio described in Airbnb #219871 ("Private and quiet with green patio"), and shares with it double soundproof doors for those wishing to rent both to accommodate up to six persons. That depends on both being available at the same time.

Please drop a line if you have more questions.

See you soon maybe, Bill
