Notre maison

This apartment, though small (27 m2, which is OK for Paris ;-)), is remarkable for its irregular shape: a triangular first room, with a kitchen inside of it, and a slightly trapezoidal bedroom.
It is located on the first floor of a very welcoming building, in the second inner yard. It is quiet and, in the summer, stays nice and cold. Not sunny at all, but decently well-lit.
The bedroom has a double bed, and an inflatable mattress can be laid down on the floor in the bedroom or living room. The furniture is street pick-up, but make an altogether fine match, I would say (see pics). Foldable tables and chairs enable me to seat as many as eight people for nice dinner parties.
The kitchen has a washing machine, cooking stove, ample stores of dishes and cooking stuff. The bathroom, toilets, sink, and a shower.
Special treat for book-lovers, the shelves hold about a thousand of them, to be freely leafed through. And the computer has unlimited internet access.
To quote the words of a friend, "thoroughly desirable".

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. I'm currently writing a PhD in English grammar and teaching at the Sorbonne. I'm also a writer, working on various ongoing projects, including a screenplay and a travel book on Naples.
    I've been a member of hospitalityclub, an international internet hospitality-exchange website, for more than a year, and I've had lots of people stay at my house, so the house is used to having people in it.
    I would travel with my (male) partner, who has the same profile as myself (academic / creative).





The apartment is located on rue des Pyrénées, in the core of old Belleville. The area is one of the highest in Paris (hence, nice steep streets around), with remaining little houses,
The closest metro station, pyrénées, on line 11, is 3 minutes walk from the house, and brings you directly to Chatelet station, at the centre of Paris, in 10 to 15 minutes.
In the immediate vicinity, you can find three supermarkets, a delicious bakery + a few average ones, a wide array of various food shops, restaurants, local bars, magazine stands, florists, an uninteresting church, etc.
On the other side of the block is a park with gorgeous views of Paris, 10 minutes north is a big hilly romantic park, and 10 minutes south is Belleville's lively Chinatown.
The area is ethnically mixed but extremely safe, to my own experience. It has been taken over by students, academics and artsy types in the last ten years, is lively, warm and welcoming.
Fashionable nightlife, with alternative cafes, bars, and clubs is available within 15 minutes walking distance.
