Charming and Spacious Paris Flat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults stayed for 1 week at this wonderful loft apartment in the Belleville area (11th Arrondissement) of Paris. The photos accurately portray the accommodations of the apartment. There is plenty of room for 5 to 7 adults, and you will have lots of privacy. The apartment is near several Metro stations, but the most convenient was "Couronnes" which was a short, 5 minute walk from the apartment. There is a big grocery store a few minutes away, which is well stocked, and you can stock up on the large kitchen for your stay.

There is easy access to Gare du Nord if you are traveling with the Eurostar and CDG airport is about a 30 minute taxi ride away.

Thank you to Philippe, Michele and Isabelle for your hospitality and welcoming us to Paris. We highly recommend this apartment and know that you will enjoy your stay. We would happily stay here again in the future. Merci Beaucoup and Aloha!

Spacious, stylish and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed for 3 nights, we arrived at about 11pm which wasn't a problem with Philippe.

The place was perfect for us, spacious, bright and stylish - it was a treat to stay in with comfortable seating and beds, the kitchen was (as the pictures show) amazingly well equipped.

The location is great if you don't want to be in the rip-off tourist area, it's close to the canal for great walks, lots of little restaurants and cafes. We went to Cafe Cannibale (2 mins round the courner) for dinner, great ambience and reasonably priced food.

A big Supermarket is 2 mins down the road and the metro stations were close and easy to get to.

Great communication from start to finish with Philippe - a great host who was patience with our poor french!

We have been to Paris several times and I'd say this was our best stay yet, mainly because of staying in this apartment and feeling like we had a home from home.

We highly recommend this place and I would never stay anywhere else in Paris again.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

As others say, the flat is not in the smartest street in Paris. But Phillipe was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived, telling us where to go for supermarkets adn shopping, and inside it was spacious, clean and safe. It's all a bit open-plan; there's only one bedroom with a solid door (another room has a curtain door, plus there's the mezzanine room with a curtain that pulls around the bed area - children thought this was great.). This turned out not to be a problem, and we'd happily stay here again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Your review on the apartment underlines the clever design of the architect, made to create a sense of feeling at home. The apartment is indeed out of the ripp off tourist area. This situation offers nice aspects to consider : lots of little restaurants and cafes along the famous rue Oberkampf, daily markets with fresh food at reasonable price on the Boulevard, excellent wine ans cheese shops... The 3 metro stations nearby bring you in 25 mn to Notre Dame, le Louvre, Montmartre... A big Supermarket is 2 mins down the road and the metro stations were close and easy to get to.

une adresse à recommander

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce loft vaste et bien conçu. Nous avons logé sans problème à 7 étant donnée la superficie. L'accueil de Philippe a été excellent et il était toujours disponible pour répondre à nos questions. L'appartement est largement pourvu en équipements pour passer un séjour agréable.

Le quartier est très riche en commerces alimentaires et en bars aux ambiances multiples, chacun y trouvera son compte. Quelques belles librairies sont aussi présentes dans le quartier. Deux stations de métro sont à proximité.

En définitive nous recommandons vivement cet appartement.

Apartamento muy espacioso, limpio y luminoso. Philippe te da mucho consejos y orientaciones sobre qué ver, dónde comprar, etc. Recomendable 100%. Sólo una pega: si vais con niños, cuidado que las escaleras no tienen barandillas.

Owner's Response: En effet, l'appartement a été conçu par un architecte qui a tiré le meilleur parti des hauteurs sous plafond pour offrir espace et lumière avec générosité. Une famille ou un groupe s'y sent très bien. Les pièces de l'appartement sont situées sur deux niveaux, avec une volée de marches, qui n'a pas de rambarde sur un côté. Nous étudions la possibilité de poser une protection pour les enfants en bas âge.

Everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent break here in August 2013.

I only got around to providing feedback when I received the automatic 1 year e-mail reminder of my stay; I would have been faster if there was anything wrong!

Phillippe was a kind and accommodating host, meeting us at the flat with helpful directions by mobile phone, providing cartoon books for my children to practise their French and providing storage for our luggage between the normal check-out time and our flights.

There was plenty of space for our family of two adults and three children (14, 10, 8), my children particularly enjoyed the open-plan urban layout. (NB. The concrete floors and lack of hand rail on the stairs may not be suitable for very young children).

While the immediate vicinity of the flat is not be the prettiest part of town (yet), it was ideal for our needs; within comfortable walking distance of a couple of metro-stations, nearby markets provided a variety of fresh food breakfast options, and restaurants and cafes on neighbouring streets gave plenty of choice for evening meals.

Don't come if you are looking for a balcony with a pretty view, but if you're looking for a slightly funky space in a less visited, but vibrant part of town give it a try.
