Lovely large Parisian flat!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four loved this beautiful flat! We felt like true Parisians for a few days! Michelle was great in communicating with us and check-in was easy. I also appreciated her responsiveness on WhatsApp in helping me with transportation questions. The flat had everything we needed; beds were comfortable, windows were beautiful looking out onto a classic Paris courtyard, and the lift up to the 5th floor worked great so we didn't have to hike upstairs after a long day of sightseeing. We went to the closest bakery around the corner every day (the pain au chocolat of course is magnificent). Very close to a number of Metro stops. Wonderful! Wish I was still there.

Very beautiful and tastefully furnished apartment, situated in a quiet, yet central location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, tastefully appointed apartment, in a turn of the century building, with elevator!, quiet and intimate, yet centrally situated, with restaurants, shops, museums, parks, churches and concert venues within reach. The apartment was well stocked with all kitchen and bathroom equipment, a washer and a rack for clothes drying, lots of extra towels, sheets, blankets, a couple of umbrellas!, not to mention the nice collection of books, and the Wi-Fi functioned flawlessly! I will definitely stay there again, when in Paris!

Parisian perfection.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal Paris experience with an apartment that was both stately and functional. Kids loved the corner patisserie, charming twin bedroom, and local parks. My wife and I loved being close enough to walk to many of the sites while still feeling like we were in a residential and authentic neighborhood. Highly recommend.

Authentic Parisian Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Hosts are wonderful! Spacious apartment in secure 19th C. building with quiet courtyard conveniently located near several metro stations. Accommodates four adults comfortably. Well equiped kitchen. Marché Saint-Martin is a great place for shopping, eating, and drinking. We walked to most of Paris easily. Close to Eurostar.

Dream Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic Parisian apartment, this is the place for you. My husband, two teen daughters, and I stayed in this apartment for three nights and loved the experience.

Here are some key points for travelling families. The apartment is very light and spacious, with lots of windows and open space. As a family of four travelling together it was lovely to have plenty of space to relax in at the end of the day. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it was quite comfortable. The apartment was very quiet, and we were able to sleep with our windows open. The apartment is located in a nice district in Paris, close to the metro, shopping, and restaurants. We walked to the local market to stock up on breakfast foods and even made dinner in the apartment one evening. We frequently used UBER to get around town, as it was almost the same price for a Uber trip for 4, as it is for 4 metro tickets.

Michelle, the host was quickly responsive to any of our inquiries and all our needs. She even welcomed us with a lovely bottle of french wine, which was a lovely touch for the start of our vacation.

If you are looking for an authentic Parisian experience, and would like more space than is provided by most Paris hotels, this is an excellent choice.

Kathleen and her sister and daughter were great. Really easy to talk to, organised and lovely people. They took great care of the apartment and it was left super clean. Couldn't ask for more.

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".

Bienvenu :-)
