Prestigious large renovated apartment with spacious balcony.
Located on the 5th floor in a traditional apartment building with lift. The building, is a classic, pierre de taille (the 'upscale' facing material used in the early 1900's), and is highly secured, requiring a code for the main entrance as well as a second different code for the elevator.
Very central and closed to the famous 'Canal Saint Martin'.... this very quiet and luminous apartment was completely refurbished in June 2010.
The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances. The dining area gets the morning sun with big open windows. In the living room you have 2 sofa beds for 2 persons each.
The bathroom has WC, shower and heated towel rail.
Strolling around the Canal Saint-Martin, notice that you are in one of Paris' more secret, lesser-known neighborhoods. There is real old-village charm here, electrified by the influence of young designers, artists, and musicians.
Rue Lucien Sampaix starts at the Canal St. Martin, a still working canal which has been turned into a perfect outdoor park and public space. The streets bordering the canal are turned into pedestrian only thoroughfares on the weekends.
This pleasant and very family-oriented neighborhood is also young, vibrant and hip with new restaurants and cafes popping up regularly. The Jardin Villemin is a small park around the corner.
