The area, known as the « Village des Martyrs », is famous for the quality of its food stores, numerous restaurants, bars, design shops.

Article of NY Times:

"FOR me, the Rue des Martyrs is the last real street in Paris.

It is here that I find artichokes so young they can be eaten raw, a Côtes du Rhône so smooth it could be a fine burgundy, and a cow cheese so creamy it’s best eaten with a spoon.

I take my cues from the late, great Julia Child. “The Parisian grocers insisted that I interact with them personally,” Julia wrote in her 2006 autobiography, “My Life in France.” “If I wasn’t willing to take the time to get to know them and their wares, then I would not go home with the freshest legumes or cuts of meat in my basket. They certainly made me work for my supper.”

So I interact. I work for my supper. Sometimes I even pretend to be Julia, with her American-accented French. I caress tomatoes, inspect lamb loins, sniff Camembert, sample wild boar charcuterie and go all wobbly over sugarcoated brioche. No one except my children makes fun of me.

I have been embraced as a member of the neighborhood “family,” as the merchants call the bas (lower) Rue des Martyrs. They know — and seem to like — one another. When I needed a stool small enough to fit into a shower after my older daughter injured her leg, the manager of the variety store borrowed one for me from the nearby jeweler. When Fahmi Hamrouni, a greengrocer at the Petit Jardin (No. 3), ran out of flat green beans one day, he grabbed handfuls for me from the greengrocer across the street.

The feeling of intimacy is enhanced on Sunday mornings, when several blocks of the street moving up from the Notre Dame de Lorette Church in the Ninth Arrondissement are closed off to traffic.

The “family” designation comes with privileges but also a code of conduct: smile and say “bonjour” to every merchant you pass, ideally stop in for a chat. It can take 30 minutes to walk a few hundred feet....."

Dear guests,

Welcome to your home away from home.

We hope you will enjoy your stay in Paris and that you will appreciate to live as a Parisian family while you are here.

Attached is a map of the places we recommend in the very near neighborhood.

Practical things:

1.You have one key to open the door of the flat and one for the door of the building which is usually left open so you will probably not use it.

2.Please remember to always lock the main door as you leave the flat, even for a very short period.

3.Please do not insert the key in the lock inside the apartment as it will prevent any possibility to open the door if you forget to remove the key before leaving the place

4.Wioletta, our faithful cleaning lady and nanny, will be there on Monday and Thursday

5.Feel free to use the home appliances.

6.Feel free to use food basics you may need from our kitchen.

7.Please replace the material and food you have used (coffee, detergent…)

8.The electrical power supply panel is in the closet located on the right as you enter the apartment

9. We have emptied one closet in our room + two in the kids’ rooms for you to tidy your clothes

We had a wonderful stay as a family of four with two teenagers. The home is very well appointed and allowed us ample space to relax, enjoy dinner together and catch up after a busy day in Paris. It is in a great location with easy access to the Metro in a lovely neighborhood. Our hosts checked on us to make sure all was going well and we had a terrific time!

Great flat, great location, great hosts. We really felt home as the flat is very well decorated, with a lot of small details that make your stay unforgettable. Everything has been rennovated recently, from the bathrooms to the kitchen. Highly recommended, this is the perfect "parisian home".

We had a wunderful stay at Clementine and her family's contemporary apartment. It is a beautiful, cosy and an inspiring place, we felt immediately at home! Great beds (we have to build a new bed for our daughter;)), shower- with good pressure, kitchen - everything is there. The neighbourhood has al sorts of delicacy shops and nice restaurants. We had dinner in the area every night, from Italian to a great fish restaurant (Maison la mere, just around the corner). If you want to shop, no problem; lot's of beautiful stores for you and your children. We would come back for sure! Thank you Clementine and Emmanuel. Best regards Matthijs, Ingrid, Berith&Pilou

It is an experience in itself to stay at Clémentine and family's place - so beatiful decorated that you immediatly feel inspired to do something new with your own home :) The area is for our type of big city travelers just perfect. You get a local vibe. The street has a flea market at weekends and filled with special shops for foodies - yum. We can only give our best recommendations. Best regards Julie and Nikolai

We had a great experience booking with Clementine and Emmanuel. They texted us the key collection info for their apartment and followed up to make sure that we got in and out of the unit successfully. The flat was as represented in the photos listed on Airbnb. It was really fun for our family to experience a Parisian Haussmann style flat with the pretty oak chevron floors, high ceilings and the bonus of two modern bathrooms (that had great water pressure) was especially nice to have traveling with our 3 kids! We were all thrilled to have wifi too :] As mentioned in other reviews- one of the bedrooms is accessed through a room with two bunk beds. It has a door separating the spaces providing privacy and was no problem for us. We enjoyed the location of their flat as well which is very near Sacre Coeur. It has a lot of boutique shops right nearby -boulingerie (artisan bakeries), chocolatiers (chocolate shops), boucher (a butcher), produits de mer (a shop selling sea food) and a Carefour grocery store half a block away. We rented a car and the parking garage is just around the corner too. (The attendant speaks French-no English. Parking was about $27 Euro per jour (per day) with a discount for additional days. There is also 2 hour parking on the street with a ticket machine half a block away. Happily, the Metro line was just a short walk (with language options on the ticket machine). We also took a taxi from the Eiffel Tower to the flat that cost about $10 Euro one way (to give you an idea of cost.) With five of us traveling, we often used Uber van which costs a little bit more than 5 of us taking the metro; however, we suggest watching the time of day in which you take a taxi or Uber because Paris street traffic can be bad during holidays and rush hours. If you are coming from CDG our iPhone took us through an area where there were many Syrian women begging with children with signs written on cardboard. It is a spot where traffic is at a complete stand still. No one bothered us and the apartment is about 1-2 miles away in a more upscale area but just be aware. Also, during the holidays there was a lot of visible security stationed at nearly every tourist spot and inside the metro. If you have kids- you may want to talk to them about it.

Located in an amazing part of the city where we rarely had to wander beyond the street for Parisian delicacies! The apartment was beautifully decorated - fantastic for our family with very comfortable living and kitchen areas and a great refuge for our young children to enjoy a festive Christmas! Thanks for the amazing Christmas tree! Clementine and Emmanuel were very helpful and I would highly recommend their apartment to guests wanting to experience Paris as a local.
