The flat is 35m², recently renovated in a typical parisian 19th century's building and located between Belleville and Canal St-Martin near the square of Sainte-Marthe. It is on the 4th floor of a typical old parisian building of the 19th century (unfortunately there is no elevator), three minutes walk from two metro stations, Belleville and Colonel Fabien (lines 2 and 11).
The room has one comfortable double convertible couch that can be used as bed for two persons, a wardrobe and a dining table. It is the brightest room of the flat with a private balcony offering a view to a calm and typical narrow street of the neighborhood. The kitchen is separated and fully-equipped (fridge, laundry machine, stove with ranges-oven/gas, coffee maker, dishes, pans, cleaning supplies, spices etc). The bathroom is comfortable and has a fully sized bathtub with shower. The room is naturally lighted during the day by double windows. Clean towels and sheets are provided. There is a Wifi internet access and phone calls to landline numbers in USA and Europe are free of charge.
The neighborhood is very lively and safe with all kinds of amenities just around the corner. Historically, Belleville was a working-class neighborhood and nowadays is the most multi-ethnic and colorful neighborhood of Paris. Since the last decade Belleville and Canal Saint Martin have been the most popular neighborhoods of Paris among artists, musicians, young people and travelers who want to avoid the touristic and mainstream Paris. Local bars, restaurants with cuisine of all origins, associations and small galleries can be found in every little picturesque street around Place Sainte-Marthe, which is widely appreciated by young Parisians. Also, two large outdoor markets are held four times a week along the nearby central road.
Moreover, one of the most beautiful parks of Paris, Buttes-Chaumont, is 15mins walking distance and you need even less time to reach the trendy and famous for its bars and restaurants Canal of Saint-Martin. If you like cycling, a municipal bicycle station is close to the building. Finally, if you want to explore the center of Paris, the metro and day/night bus lines are frequently running and are so convenient that it will take no more than 20-25 minutes to get you at Montmartre, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre museum, the Seine river and Champs-Élysées.
Of course it will be a great pleasure for us to provide you with maps, information and details about where/how to go, what to eat and drink, what to see, etc.

We are Parisians by choice. We are working on contemporary art and education. We love living in Paris and we try to keep up with cultural events. We will be happy to provide visitors with info on cultural activities in Paris. After traveling in several countries we find that it is most interesting to feel immersed in a city's life by living in one of its neighborhoods. "Sainte-Marthe", the neighborhood we have chosen to live in, is a very lively and interesting area, not far from the well-known monuments and museums of Paris, but it is also calm and preserves its own, special character. We think that visitors will also appreciate its original character.
