Hi, I'm Jan!

Our pied-de-terre is an inviting home away from home. The library is well supplied with a wide array of guide books, engaging novels set in Paris, and books on the history of Paris and France. (Registered guests are welcome to review the book inventory prior to their trip enabling them to save space in their luggage by leaving books behind.) The new furniture was specially selected to meet the needs of our guests. Lounging in the arm chair and ottoman is the perfect way to recuperate after a long day on your feet in Paris. The bedroom is on the quieter courtyard side of the building where it's common to awake to the soft sounds of birds singing. Two of the best boulangeries (bakeries) in Paris are just a block or two away. The open air market at the end of the street is in the Top Ten in Paris. Vibrant nightlife is just a block away on rue Roquette and other nearby streets. Many top spots in Paris are just minutes away by foot. Place des Vosges, home to French kings and Victor Hugo, is 8 minutes away, Centre Georges Pompidou is 15, and Notre Dame Cathedral is just 20.

Traveling light and needing to do laundry? A laundromat is just around the corner and has instructions in English. Looking for a unique French taste? The absinthe bar, La Feé Verte, is the next block over and has a suite of their own absinthes. Intrigued by the past? Père Lachaise is one of the most famous cemeteries in the world and has the graves of a wide variety of famous people including: Honoré de Balzac, Sarah Bernhardt, Frédéric Chopin, Yves Montand, Jim Morrison, and Marcel Proust. Enjoy people watching? The Place Bastille is vibrant and sometimes full of surprises, from marching strikers, large antique shows, to the thousands of rollerbladers streaming through on various Friday nights. The summer solstice offers music and live performance all over Paris, but it's especially lively throughout the Bastille where the whole neighborhood becomes a festival.

Back for a second stay

“ Excellent ”
June 1, 2015
We had the good fortune to stay at this apartment on a second visit to Paris. We were also lucky enough to spend two entire weeks there. The location is perfect for going almost anywhere in the city. With a second trip, we had the luxury of knowing the neighborhood so we could explore each street in more depth. We didn't have a "checklist" of sights, but could just wander any direction at any corner, depending on what looked intriguing that day. We are not night people by custom, but we finished two nights at the absinthe bar. We loved the two boulangeries, and found special treats at the Algerian pastry shop -- miniature works of edible art! Many days started with an easy walk to the Seine, or to the Marais; we had a lovely afternoon on the viaduct-turned-park-and-artists'-studios behind the Opera Bastille. The apartment became a perfect "home away from home" for us. The owners of this apartment are in love with Paris, in love with travel, and completely engaging with their guests! They accommodated our schedules, anticipated our needs, and gave helpful directions with the trains from Charles de Gaulle. They recommended nearby cafes and a lovely wine shop. The human interaction made all the difference in making our plans. Caution: You may be at risk of creating a new friendship!
