The de Friedland flat is a charming, modern, spacious and comfortable home away

from home. It's location is superb! The owner was friendly, gracious and cooperative.

I recommend this accomodation to anyone who wants a truly Parisian experience right in the heart of the city.

Staying in your lovely flat in Paris made my trip to your city a remarkable adventure. It is the perfect alternative to a hotel and helped me feel like I was a true resident of my favorite international city. Your attention to detail, the lovely decor, the cleanliness, and the spacious rooms made my time there so comfortable.

Petra Bosland. HOLLAND

Just a note to say how a great time we've had at your appartment. For us it was the perfect house. Central, safe, inspiring, beautifully decorated and with a special bedroom for our son Mick ( who plays the whole time metro with his train now)

Thad Stalcup. GA, USA

I would like to say that we had a wonderful time in Paris, and we really enjoyed our stay at your apartment.

We can not say enough about the apartment. We really feel that for the price we got a great deal. Great location, great decor, and with views of the Eiffel Tower and the Arch deTriumphe from the roof. What more could you want? Thanks again for being so easy to work with. We look forward to staying with you next time we are in Paris.

Faraliza Lee. HONK KONG

Just like to say how much my kids, my husband and I enjoyed staying at your loft. I hope we left it in good condition.

Thank you. I must say I appreciated very much on how you made a special effort to provide your rentees with those instruction guides.

Jennifer garland Ross. USA

We had a really great time and the apartment was perfect.

Thanks soo much for your assistance and I look forward to returning to Paris and staying in your apartment again.

I will defeintely refer you to my friends when they go to visit Paris.

Thank you again.


Your place is comfortable, extremely clean and well-equipped, and cozy.

We loved the location, which was both easily accessible to the Champs-Elysees and the Metro, and very quiet at night to allow for sleep. Your chart of all the local shops was extremely useful. Thanks for your attention to all the logistical details, and your kindness during our stay.

We will not hesitate to recommend your apartment to others visiting the City of Light! Sincerely.

Vicki Paradice. USA

Just a quick note to say thanks for your hospitality while we enjoyed your flat.

It was so great to have a real 'home' base so close to everything. The Paris Metro is really easy to use and we found all of the people very friendly.

It is very comfortable and we will certainly contact you when we come to Paris again.

About The Owner

I will be delighted you will be staying in my flat, av de Friedland. I am sure you will be enjoy by this flat and its location. I rent it since 8 years now and I remodel every parts. It’s my own flat and I lived in during 10 years, but I have a family now, with 2 children and it’s a little to small for all over the year.

When I have free renter time, we like with my family to spend a week-end inside, my children love this place and I can verify that everything is well working.

My other job is lighting product designer, and I have my own small company. I live in Paris, and this is why I will always meet you at your arrival and at your departure. My passion is travelling far away in Usa, China, Japan, Russia, India, Burma, Madagascar, etc…

Perfect place for a week in Paris

  • 5 of 5

What a week in Paris! Philippe and his loft turned a great trip into an unforgettable experience.

One of the real pluses to this flat is location, location, location! The flat is in a very safe area, less than a 2 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysees, as well as metro and bus stops. Transportation was a breeze. No need to rent a car. We took a bus directly from CDG to the Arc. We felt very safe walking with our luggage from the bus stop to the flat.

Philippe’s attention to detail is what made staying in his loft effortless. There were bound instruction booklets, with pictures, that guide you in the use of the flat. From the television to the toaster, if we had a question, we could find the answer at our fingertips.

The kitchen was stocked almost as well as ours at home. Any, pot, pan, utensil, plate, glass, herb, or spice we could possibly need was on hand. In an effort to save money, we ate half of our dinners in, so the well-stocked kitchen was a real plus. There are many amazing bakeries close by for breakfast, as well as fabulous cafes and restaurants for dinner. All within walking distance.

The flat accommodated our group of 4 adults and 1 toddler well. Because the flat is on 2 levels, we never felt over crowded, like we would have, if all of us had stayed in a hotel room. The beds were very comfortable and the duvets kept us toasty. The furniture was cozy and functional. The Wi-Fi, television, cable, and sound system all worked well.

The flat was very clean and well maintained. Philippe has stocked the flat so well, that there were even multiple choices of air fresheners to choose from in the WC. The pictures posted with this listing are very accurate.

There is only one caveat I might mention. The elevator gets you most of the way up to the flat, but some stair climbing is still necessary. I think, however, that the stairs add to the charm of this amazing flat. There are steep stairs to the loft, but our 3-year-old was able to manage fine. A young 2-year-old on the stairs would have been more difficult.

We have always wanted to run away and live in an artist’s loft in Paris. Thanks to Philippe, we could make that dream come true. (Even if it was only for a week.)

Fantastic Apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Good contact with host before and during the stay. Location was perfect for transport and for sightseeing. Quiet neighbour despite close presence to busy areas.

Apartment was very nice, well presented with all amenities and clean. We all enjoyed the flat and had a good nights sleep. Our boys particularly liked all the toys.

Everything you need in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (one teenager and two college kids) stayed here for five days over Christmas 2017 and we loved it! It is all on a very small scale but has everything you need. The kitchen was properly stocked, the beds comfortable. Might not work for you if you cannot do steep stairs or if you are really tall and want to stand up in the bedrooms, but it worked well for us. We enjoyed the ambiance of the flat and its wonderful location near the Arc de Triomphe and an easy subway entrance. And Philippe was wonderful! He was very nice, responsive, helpful and flexible, guided us towards the exchange place next door that seemed to have the best exchange rate for dollars. If we can make it back to Paris, we will most likely stay here again! Merck, Philippe!!

Charming, quiet retreat from busy Paris

  • 5 of 5

We love this flat! Our stay, November 5 - 20, was wonderful, again. This was the third time our family has used Philippe’s flat for our stays in Paris. You have everything you need, Philippe has always been quick to remedy any inconvenience and the Metro is close by. A nice place to decompress.

A block from the Arc du Triomphe

  • 5 of 5

Philippe was very nice and accommodating. His apartment comfortably slept our family of 4 (with 2 kids). It’s is a block from the Arc and within 5-10 min walk of grocery stores, minutes for tons of restaurants, and 3 min from the Metro underground. We fell in love with his unique loft apartment that was so thoughtfully designed and laid out. Wonderful week in Paris! We would rent again!

Perfect rental for a family in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 14 and 11). It is in a very safe location near the Arc D’Triomphe and Les Champs-Élysées. You are steps away from several metro and bus lines. It was so great having separate sleeping areas for us and each kid and being able to see the Eiffel Tower out of the skylights! There was also a computer with printer and extensive cable TV options, which we barely used because we preferred to be out exploring Paris. This would not be a great place to stay if you do not walk up steps easily, but other than that, it was wonderful. Philippe is very thorough and helpful.
