This quiet 200 sq' / 20 sq m studio apartment in the 12th arrondissement is a fifth floor walk-up (88 steps, no elevator - we know... but eat and drink and you work it off!) at the corner of rue d’Aligre and rue de Charenton.
There's the wonderful outdoor Place d'Aligre Market for fruit+veg+flowers, a flea market, and an indoor market where you can get cheese+meat+fish.
The Promenade Plantee (like NYC's Highline) is around the corner above the Viaduc des Arts.
It's a fifteen minute walk to the Bastille and the new Opera House. The Marais is just the other side of the Bastille.
Two minute’s walk to Gare de Lyon where Metro Line 1 goes directly to the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Champs Elysees, the Grand Palais. But it's Paris, why not walk? It's a truly great location.
MAXIMUM 2 PERSONS - NO ADDITIONAL GUESTS
WiFi. Cable. Flat screen tv. Blow dryer. Iron. Sheets + towels.
Interaction with guests
We live in Toronto, but we have a person in Paris in case there's an emergency.
Turn off lights and heat when you go out. Be gentle. We'll send you a blurb about how everything works when you book the apt.
Philippe is from Paris, but we live in Toronto and visit whenever we can.
I'm a writer and Philippe's a camera operator. We work in tv and film in Toronto.
We love our tiny Paris apartment - it's in the best neighbourhood! And actual Parisians live here too!! One of the best markets in the city is right here, on rue d'Aligre, the Promenade Plantee's just a few steps up the street, and it's got one of the finest metro connections at Gare de Lyon (2 min walk). The 88 stairs up to the apt are only difficult when you're dragging up your luggage - it gets better after that.
We've been on another rental site for 10 yrs - time to try airbnb too!
We rented airbnb places in London and Norwich winter 2013 - Wonderful. Airbnb is the new revolution in travel. We love it!
