It is a classic Parisian flat in the best neighborhood. Mats was so accommodating to our needs. We will ONLY stay here when we come back. We had our baby with us and the lift made it really easy with the stroller and coming in and out.
Best vacation rental experience we have had yet. Highly recommend it!
The apartment was perfect for the four of us, with a private bath for each couple. Everything was there that we needed. I was very clean. We had a little trouble with the washing machine, but our call for help was responded to very quickly. We loved the antiques! It was a lovely, quiet spot to enjoy a glass of wine after a long day of sightseeing in Paris.
The apartment was lovely! ...just like the pictures...charming, comfortable, clean and well appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed "coming home" after a day out and about. Plus there are wonderful restaurants and shops very close by (Can't stop dreaming about the baked goods at Du Pain et Des Idees!!!) Thank you Mats for being such a gracious host and providing your suggestions.
We went to Paris to spend new year´s eve with my family of five adults. From the beginning Mats, the owner, was very helpful and even organized our pick up at the airport! That was a kind detail, we has to make a long travel from Santiago, Chile to get to Paris! Once we got to the apartment we noticed that this was exactly as it was described: beautiful and very spacious. Since we where 5v adults, with 2 daughters , one son and me & husband, having two bedrooms and two baths was so perfect!. Everything was neat and clean. The apartment had everything you need to make a comfortable living while in Paris. I would say that the space was a luxury, we stayed before in another apartment and space was an issue. This one was perfect for a nice living and even to get friends to come along for dinner as we had! Mats was so kind to leave a booklet with info&tips and about the neighborhood, the metro, restaurants, etc, perfect to get around. We would definitely go back to this lovely apartment next time we are in Paris, it´s perfect!

Nous avons passé 5 jours formidables, en famille, dans cet appartement pour les fêtes de Noël. En un mot, tout était parfait !
Tout correspondait au descriptif. Appartement spacieux, très calme, ensoleillé, bien équipé, literie de qualité, propreté impeccable. Nous avons pu recevoir nos enfants et nos amis pour le dîner du réveillon et le déjeuner de Noël : rien ne manquait. Excellent rapport qualité/prix. Parking et métro à proximité. Sans oublier bien sûr le quartier avec ses commerçants et son marché, et surtout la gentillesse et les attentions de Mats et de Caroline. Nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir et nous recommandons vivement cette location à nos proches et amis.
The Canal St. Martin is a calm and peaceful, attracting more Parisians than tourists. Romantic iron footbridges and tree-lined streets the perfect and truly authentic Parisian atmosphere this district has to offer.
A walk around the neighborhood you will find independent shops and high-end boutiques. Like for example Antoine et Lili shops (95 quai de Valmy), a trio of colorful stores selling endearing pieces of home decor and furniture, children's and women's clothing. You love high-end vintage clothing? Then you must go to Thanx God I'm a V.I.P. (12 rue de Lancry), a two-level, 200m2 vintage store selling Hermes, YSL, Burberry, and Lanvin. Open 7 days a week, Artazart (83 quai de Valmy) is filled with art and design books, Lomo cameras and other hip arty gadgets. Centre Commercial (2 rue de Marseille), is a loft-style boutique featuring brands chosen for their impact on social and environmental issues. Further down the street is the boutique A.P.C. (5 rue de Marseille).
With all the restaurants in the neighborhood you will never go hungry here! Grab a drink and a meal with friends at the legendary Hotel du Nord (102 quai de Jemmapes), around since 1885 and famous for being in the 1938 Marcel Carné movie. Du Pain et des Idées (34 rue Yves Toudic) THE bakery in the area, frequented by Parisians and tourists for its traditional pastries with twists like for example matcha green tea croissants. Mingle your way through the crowds for a seat at the terrace of bistro Chez Prune (71 quai de Valmy), or have a gluten-free meal at Helmut Newcake (36 rue Bichat). If you're on a budget do like the locals and go to Le Cambodge (20 rue Alibert), which serves delicious Cambodian cuisine in a canteen-like setting.
If you choose to picnic instead of sitting in a restaurant, be sure to get some delicious authentic and modern cakes from the House of 3 Brothers (25 rue de Lancry). You can also head over to the renovated 18th century convent Maison de l'architecture en Ile-de-France (148 rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin) to marvel at the architecture-related expositions held in this old chapel. Once you're there, make sure to drop by Café A, it's terrace is a popular hangout in the summer.
If you're too lazy to walk along the quai by foot, book a Canauxrama boat cruise (2 hours and 30 minutes), which takes you through four double locks and two swing bridges before ending at the Bassin de la Villette area.
But that is just a few things the Canal St Martin area has to offer. Much more is to be seen when you visit and the best thing is simply "put on your sunglasses and stroll around to discover".
