segire purchased this house in 2003
My husband and I spent 2 weeks in the apartment near Canal St. Martin. First I must say that it took by 6'2" husband a few days to get comfortable in the small space. I am 5'5" and was perfectly at home immediately. That said I must say that it is very livable and very secure. We have been to Paris many times so we were looking for a more "real" stay rather than a tourist visit. We loved the Canal St. Martin, the locals sit along its banks in the evenings, there are numerous bistros and bars along the way and if you walk down a bit you will find a group of older gentlemen playing petanque in the evenings. It is near 2 main train station so day trips north or east are very easy.
Best of all are the hosts- Seguire and Louie- who live across the courtyard. They are very gracious and helpful. For example- a friend ordered a bottle of wine for our birthdays from a Paris wine store to be delivered. Well, there was much drama around the delivery and we finally asked Seguire and Louie for advice. They took all the particulars and promised to see what they could do. The next afternoon we found a bottle of wine with a birthday note - not the first bottle but a gift from Seguire and Louie!! To make a long story short, they tracked down the original bottle and shipped it to us in Houston, Tx and it is in our home waiting to be enjoyed.
I recommend this apartment for anyone that is looking for a "real" Paris experience and are comfortable is small spaces.
Romantic, cozy and secure. Easy access to public transport. Contemporary bath/shower with strong, hot weather. Note: steep ladder-like steps to sleeping loft. Very responsive host.
Segire was a wonderful host and their tiny home in the garden was fantastic. The house is secreted away behind a huge street door and through an interesting (and immaculate) alley of similar places. Behind a black steel door you enter a secluded courtyard and find the property.
The set up is so interesting and the bed is very, very comfortable. We also enjoyed the Japanese soaking tub and shower. The family's housekeeper, Daisy, was polite and helpful.
I've never stayed in the 10th and the Canal St. Martin was so beautiful and interesting to watch the locks as boats move up and down the canal. There are great restaurants nearby, as well as great shops (clothing, patisseries and bookstore).
Darling "little house" set in a beautiful garden courtyard. This is the perfect place to stay for a couple, a parent with child (my 12 year old niece loved this apartment) or for a single person. The house is very safe and clean with a wonderful shower on the first floor and all the cooking utensils and space you need to cook. If you don't want to cook, you're in the right place: there are numerous restaurants along the canal: the canal is just a few steps from the apartment. I really loved the second floor balcony bedroom with it's little door to your own private and sunny deck. The queen mattress was very comfortable with easy to reach lights and plugs for my computer and mobile phone. I felt very safe sleeping there: sort of like sleeping in a high-end treehouse where you can see in all directions. The wifi service was terrific and the hosts were lovely. Plus I was able to walk to/from Gare du Nord in about 20 minutes. I'm a walker and travel with a small wheeled suitcase. If you're not a walker, Metro stop Jacques Bonsergent is about 10 minutes away (I'm guessing since I walked everywhere) and taxis along the roads beside the canal. Lovely place.
This is a wonderful little house and very different to anywhere else you will ever stay in Paris. In a great and vibrant neighbourhood by the canal, the little house is tucked away in a silent courtyard in an old industrial building, surrounded by other small homes. The interior is full of stylish furniture and a wonderful Japanese bath. The house was spotless and very well maintained. It is only a short walk from the major train and metro stations. We loved he local neighbourhood, strolling up and down the canal and sampling the excellent bars and bistros close by. This is an excellent base for your trip to Paris, and I highly recommend it. Many thanks to the wonderful and helpful host Segire. We can't wait to return!
