About the property

ideal studio for 2 or 3 Parisian fans, 3C : central, clean and calm

Very peaceful.Ideally located : Our neighborhood is very lively and offers the advantage of being really in the heart of Paris: 2 minutes walk from the Canal Saint Martin (pedestrian area on weekends, trendy restaurants, gardens) and Republic (Square du Temple, market Enfants Rouges with sunny terraces). Lively on Sundays, with all amenities including 3 supermarkets within 2min walk open 7/7.

The apartment is located in the hip 11ème arrondissement, casually known as Bastille, just minutes walk from the urban-chic bars, eateries and bohemian vibe of the Oberkampf.

The apartment is well placed with markets, shops and restaurants within walking distance. Well furnished with everything you need for a pleasant stay.

Cultural spots in the area include the Place de la Bastille, the new Bastille Opera house, the Edith Piaf museum, or the hugely popular Père Lachaise cemetery, the Pompidou center.

The nearby pretty Parc de Belleville is perfect for picnicking with a view to Montmartre, or sample the local produce from the open-air markets around these charming streets.

My building is on a very pretty paved yard. Very calms, it is also sunny because opposite are moved back and green (vine planted on the frontages). Through the window you little houses in the courtyard. The sight is sympathetic nerve because it dominates of the very picturesque cityhouses.

The house has free Internet acces wi-fi ADSL.

Lively on Sundays, with all amenities including 3 supermarkets within 2min walk open 7/7.   To relax in the evenings and drink ((restaurant La Marine), you will discover the Canal Saint-Martin, with calm waters, surrounded by trees, spanned by elegant bridges or the busy streets Oberkampf and Jean-Pierre Timbaud. Some good places for eating cheap Paris in a blog that I myself An example: The home of Madeleine eat under a Parisian monument for 8 €

Really great spot to stay

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with a friend of mine and we stayed here for ~5 days at the end of May/beginning of June. This was my first time to Paris, and I'm really glad I chose to stay here. Everything was really clean when we arrived and it had everything we needed (towels, TP, etc.). There was even extra shampoo/conditioner/soap under the sink in case you need any. The thing I liked most is that the owner provided outlet converters! As I said, this was my first trip to Paris (and Europe, in general, actually) and I forgot to bring an outlet converter, so this was a big help for me!

The owner was super nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The owner also lives close by, so if there are any issues they can be resolved quickly. If you need some time to unwind, there is a TV and a good selection of movies available. The building is right by a couple metro stops so that was really convenient for travelling around the city. There's also a crepe stand nearby that made amazing Nutella crepes, so definitely give that a go.

Overall, I'm really glad we stayed here. It was a convenient location, was clean, and had everything we needed. Highly recommend.

Fantastic apartment, great location, and a bargain!

  • 5 of 5

I greatly enjoyed my stay in Vivian's apartment. Though I didn't meet her, she made self-check-in simple and easy. The apartment, though tiny, is very well designed and nicely appointed and has a charming view of life in the center of a typical block in the 11th arrondissement. This was my fourth visit to Paris and my first stay outside of the Marais. The Marais is great, but very touristy. The 11th and this apartment gives you a chance to experience the "real" Paris. I would definitely stay here again.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple in our late 30s from New York, and Vivian's studio apartment was perfect for our visit to Paris. It's conveniently located close to trains and great restaurants, in a good walking neighborhood, and the building itself is very charming. We loved the courtyard and the staircase, and staying in an apartment rather than a hotel made us feel like we had more of the true Parisian experience. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great, Vivian was communicative and helpful, and everything we needed was provided, although the wifi signal was a little bit weak we made it work for us. We would recommend Vivian's place for any single people or couples traveling to Paris.

Hospitable host and well-kept studio unit

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay at Vivian's place (ex-nanny studio) very close to her main residence. She was very helpful with booking a taxi (like comparing two difference companies as well as Uber-like arrangements. The studio was very quiet although in a busy neighborhood with lots of convenient restaurants and grocery stores (even a bio (organic) one. The signs at the corner metro for the streets can be confusing so definitely check it throughly before trying to locate her unit. She accommodating our needs for laundry, even leaving laundry detergent accessible for us. Her son, Nicolas, even was gracious to us when we were waiting for our taxi upon leaving to ask his mother to text us when it was supposed to arrive. We would be thrilled to stay at her unit again if we visit Paris.

Metro : la sortie au Nom "Rue du Faubourg du Temple", située aujourd'hui coté impair, est à 40 mètres de la maison. Projet : Dans le cadre du projet de prolongement de la ligne 11, il est prévu de créer une sortie simple à l’extrémité ouest des quais, débouchant par un escalier dans la rue du Faubourg-du-Temple, côté pair, juste en face de mon immeuble.
