Artist's apartment, unconventional, ancient shop turned into an atelier and apartment, in an old part of Paris: the village of Charonne.
Furnished in 50's and 60's style, it's full of charm, and can host 3 persons.
The 2 entrance doors make you feel as you were in a little house with a sunny courtyard to take your breakfast.
This ancient shop turned into an apartment by an architect is very well organised to keep the maximum of space and confort.
I've decorated it by myself with design furniture and bright colors to make a cosy place to live in.
There's 2 rooms: the main one with living room, kitchen and an alcove as sleeping room and the second, my workshop (I'm a contemporary artist, it's clean and tidy), can be use as an extra sleeping room or a sitting-room.
The place is perfect for 2 people as there's 2 futon matresses on the floor as bed that can be joined together (for a king size bed) or separated. But an extra matress can be added for a 3rd personn.
There's a wifi access but no television. The birds show in the courtyard is worth to see!
The appartment has 2 entrances, one on the courtyard and the other directly on the street.
You have acces to the whole apartment
The courtyard isn't private but there's few people hanging there. There's only another apartment directly on the groundfloor on the oppposite corner of the courtyard. 2 others have an acces with stairs. and there are 1 photographes' studio and a rented studio for yoga and dance classes.
Interaction with guests
I'm usually away when I'm renting the apartment but my neighbours or the concierge are always pleased to welcome and help you.
During your stay, you can contact me by phone and email.
I live in Paris since 20 years. Artist and storyteller, I like to discover the world, especially other peoples.
From Scotland to Ethiopia, I walked in wild landscapes, I visited wonderful exhibitions, I spent hours in local busses, "speaking" with my neighbours, using 3 words and few signs, I sat on the side of the road to draw the passers-by...
My door is always wide open to friends for a coffee, a lunch or some nights.
Parisienne depuis 20 ans, artiste et conteuse, j'aime découvrir le monde et surtout les autres.
De l'Ecosse à l'Ethiopie, j'ai marché dans la nature sauvage, visité des expositions fabuleuses, fait de longs trajets de bus en "discutant" avec mes voisins à l'aide de 3 mots et de quelques signes, me suis assise au bord de la route pour dessiner ceux qui passaient...
Ma porte est toujours ouverte aux amis pour un café, un repas ou quelques nuits.
