Urban Magic

  • 5 of 5

The Canal Saint Martin Loft is a piece of Parisian magic. In Paris's trendiest neighborhood, filled with adventuresome restaurants and shops, close to the incredibly energetic recently redone Place de la Republique, which is superbly connected to metro lines, this space--filled with books and with pleasing objects and art from around the world, a unique combination of chic and hip--is a pleasure to return to or simply to be in. What makes the loft unique in my lifetime of Parisian apartments is that it is beautiful, on an exciting street, and yet is quiet. Kitchen is superbly equipped, beds are comfortable, light is plentiful, near one of the great open air markets of Paris, air conditioning is very appreciated in summer.

L'appartement de rêves

  • 5 of 5

Travelled from Australia with 2 kids (10 & 12) and loved this wonderful, whimsical apartment. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating, the place is quiet yet central and easy to get around Paris from. The weekend flea market along the canal, local cafes and a supermarket a few metres up the road. The apartment is so interesting it takes you to another world. Could not recommend it more highly.

Paris Loft

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our second stay in this spacious loft. It provides a serene retreat from the bustle of the city, while being centrally located and an easy launching place for all parts of the city. The atmosphere inside is truly unusual, surrounded by excellent and unique pieces of African sculpture and art. There is an ambience of light and green plants. The very well equipped kitchen enabled us to cook elaborate meals of great Parisian treats. Good appliances. We will continue to come back whenever we can to this lovely and restful setting. Also of interest is the wonderful butterfly collection and the great library which is almost a work of art in itself with complex visual texture of the many diverse books on the shelves.

This place is a deligh...

  • 5 of 5

This place is a delight, open & airy, incredibly well located, and Jean Marc and his wife couldn't be more wonderful to deal with. (He even sent us recommended restaurants in locations in eastern France where we were staying prior to Paris.)It was VERY quiet, even with the windows open, and a far, far cry from the tiny, dark apartments we've rented before. (The ONLY drawback is that the loft is clearly home to smokers, but we used air freshener spray and it was fine.)

If you stay here, be sure to go to the small creperie around the corner. Go out the gate to your left, then left at the street beyond MacDonald's. It's a couple shops up on the left.
