Space, Silence and Sun! Enjoy visiting busy Paris while coming home to a spacious 3-bedroom duplex in a quiet street 5 mins away from Porte de la Villette, in the northern industrial part of the capital. Have a drink on the balcony & enjoy the view!
The apartment is spacious and full of light since there is no building facing it. The living room is big and light, with a table that extends to fit 12 people (this does not appear on the pictures because we got it after they were taken).
There are two balconies, one by the living-room with table and chairs for an afternoon tea in the sun, one shared between the office and a bedroom. The windows are facing west, so there is sun in the afternoon and a beautiful sunset view over the Sacré Coeur, beyond the hundreds of small houses and factory tiled roofs.
While the upstairs bedroom is exceptionally big and ensuite (shower, sink and separate toilet), one of the downstairs bedrooms has the biggest bed, so that everyone has a good reason to be happy. There is also a big sofa in the living-room that unfolds into a comfortable double bed. The second bedroom downstairs has a double futon that folds back into a nice couch - it is a bit more rudimentary than the three other beds of the apartment so we advice you only use it if you need an extra bed and/or more privacy than in the living-room. This room also has a toddler bed with bars (140x70) and we can also provide a crib if required.
We provide duvets, pillows and bedsheets, just let us know in advance what you need.
Our kitchen, open on the living-room, is fully equipped (blenders, boiler, coffee makers, toaster, microwave, oven, freezer, etc), so that you can try some funny French recipes with fresh products from the market, or bake something tasty from home to feel cosy :)
Bathing & Showering
The bathroom downstairs has a big sink and a bath with strong hot water pressure. The bedroom upstairs is en suite with a spacious shower and a sink.
There are two toilets: one upstairs and one downstairs, each in a separate room.
Guests have access to the entire apartment and all the balconies, there is also a closed private garage downstairs to put bikes or a car.
Please be kind and polite to our neighbours and respect the no smoking and no pets allowed rules.
We are happy to answer all of our guests' questions before, on and after arrival! We speak fluent French, English and Dutch, and a little bit of German.
Parisian since I can remember (although I studied in Oxford for a year), I love traveling, meeting people and reading crazy stories. Currently doing a phd in criminal law in Paris, I live with an awesome Dutch man who makes sure I keep my eyes wide open watching the world.
