A peace of countryside in this very Parisian apartment, with access to a flowery courtyard. Compact and functional, it is ideal for two couples or couple with children. Nevertheless, it is possible to stay at 5 but we must tighten!!
It's a very Parisian-type apartment refurbished in March 2013, in the heart of a green district, very popular with artists. It is an unusual lay-out as it has three sides overlooking three different atmospheres : a quiet street, an tree-lined avenue and a courtyard. You reach the apartment by crossing the paved courtyard full of plants. Weather permitting, you can have coffee on the courtyard tables below the apartment windows. The living room and open kitchen (14m2, single sofa-bed not suitable for long stays) overlook the
courtyard – inside, the atmosphere is immediately warm and cosy (parquet-flooring, carved wooden doors, new and efficient radiators in each room). A corridor leads to the rest of the apartment. On the left, a bedroom (10m2, double-bed 120cm, wardrobe, desk) with a door to the courtyard. The high wooden window overlooks the trees on the avenue below. On this side you are on the 2nd floor and no buildings are directly opposite. The bedroom on the right of the corridor is not
overlooked either (13m2, double-bed 140cm, wardrobe, desk and fireplace (not suitable for use)) – one window overlooks a quiet street and the second window overlooks the tree-lined avenue leading to the Parc Montsouris. The bathroom has a bath and a washing machine/dryer. Back in the living room, you can take your time to read emails (unlimited free wireless broadband internet) on one of the bar stools. The kitchen is organized around a large open-plan work-top (dishwasher, fridge, ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, coffee-
maker, electric toasted sandwich maker, toaster, and condiments are provided.)
The apartment is ideal for a couple with children or two couples. The sofa bed in the lounge can be used as an extra bed but is not suitable for long stays. If necessary we can set up a cot.
You have access to all the apartment as long as you take care of our stuff!
Interaction with guests
We are often traveling in France or abroad, our friend Stephan manages the apartment in these cases. We try to be available by email and phone, but we cannot guarantee that we come visit you! Obviously, us, or Stephan, can come to visit us when needed.
Other things to note
The apartment is on the ground floor sometimes in mid-season you can feel a little moisture, air extractors are installed in the kitchen and bathroom bearing for this, the best remaining thinking airing regularly.
The windows are in single glazing, some guests complained about street noise. There are Venetian blinds to the windows, they mask the light but are not totally occulting.
The living room is small, we had to make choices, there is a bar with three stools available, if necessary we can bring other, do not hesitate to ask.
There is a coffee table, but if you prefer you can bring in the metal table from the courtyard.
Enjoy the site! But keep in mind that the rest of the year we live there and that all cases belong to us ...
The apartment has been refurbished by the sweat of our brows, we greatly appreciate it stays in good condition the maximum time, in particular the work plans of the kitchen, the bathroom and the coffee table that live badly prolonged exposure to water.
Enjoy your stay!
