Located in a dynamic east Parisian neighborhood, our newly-remodeled 1 bedroom apartment is custom-designed not just for photos but more for the comfort of its inhabitants. We provide high quality amenities for our guests to ensure a perfect stay. Enjoy the authentic Parisian life provided by amazing restaurants and local artisanal stores in the neighborhood. A true 'live like a local' experience in the new 'left bank' of Paris .

The space

*Our apartment has obtained the city authorization to conduct short-term rental and is totally complied with the city regulations.*

Completely renovated by architects (us) with smart design and high quality materials, this late 19th century apartment is packed with modern comfort. It's not a big apartment, but we managed to create a space that feels and functions as something twice its original size.

Bedroom : 28cm-thick double spring mattress padded with latex. Luxurious Egyptian cotton satin bedding; 100% down pillows and duvet ensure a sweet dream in such softness; Beddings are always sent out for professional wash just like in the hotels.

Bathroom : Spacious marble shower with rain shower head to relax and refresh after a day's visit. We provide organic shampoo and soaps.

Kitchen : High quality cookwares and utensils to make your daily cooking a real pleasure: Italian stainless steel pots and pans, German knives and the legendary French cast iron pot " Le Creuset"; A Nespresso to start the day.

Others : A single bed (real bed with comfy foam mattress) for the third person located in an alcove-like space and is separated from the living area to allow maximum privacy for everyone in the apartment. A nice and sturdy cot for couples traveling with their small baby.

We clean the apartment with ecological and natural cleaning product for a healthy environment.

All in all, we try to make your stay in Paris as perfect as possible with qualities that you can not only see from the photos, but also feel when you are inside.

Guest access

The apartment is an independant part of our 3-story mixed-use space. It is located on the 1st floor ( European) or 2nd floor ( American) with its own entrance. Unfortunately like many old buildings it doesn't have an elevator, but you have only a small flight of stairs to climb.

Interaction with guests

We travel quite often but we respond our emails and text messages in a timely fashion. When in Paris, we are very happy to give you day to day directions or answer your questions. You are welcome to stop by on your way out or knock on the door if you need anything. Note that we are just downstairs from you. :) We have also prepared a very detailed neighborhood guide for our guests, so that you can really enjoy the restaurants, the one of a kind grocery and pastry shops like the locals.

Other things to note

We don't have a TV, but we believe with internet you don't really need one. And we assume that you prefer exploring Paris rather than sit in front of the TV. We have left you both English and French books on Paris just in case there is a rainy day.

Lilan has an amazing taste for design. The space is incredibly efficient and stylish. She left us a Monocle style city/restaurant guide which was very helpful. Fast reliable internet. Close to tons of restaurants. Great value.

Lilan's apartment is everything pictured and more. It was the perfect little place to come back to after a long day of adventuring the beautiful streets of Paris. Location of the apartment was so convenient as the metro was right around the corner. Otherwise everything is walkable from her place! We walked around so much during our stay and got lost so often around the Parisian alley's (didn't mind at all cause Paris is so beautiful!) Thank you again, Lilan and Nikola for being a huge part of our little family holiday in Paris. The both of you and your apartment, are now one of the reasons why we need to make a return trip to see more than just 8 days of Paris. :)

We had a wonderful stay at Lilan's apartment and we were very well looked after. As we arrived very early for check-in, Lilan allowed us early access which was very much appreciated after our long trip from Australia. Thank you Lilan!

Lilan's comfortable and stylish apartment is very well located for a 'real Paris' experience. A great area to explore and guided by Lilan's local knowledge, the apartment is close to lots of great cafés and restaurants - and within easy reach of well-known spots. Lilan is a warm and welcoming host who makes a lot of effort to ensure your trip is very enjoyable! Highly recommended!
