Atelier 34 - A Petite Space so Hip and Chic!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned from our Paris journey of two weeks where we stayed at this cool flat known as Atelier 34. It was about as off the beaten path as one could get.

We were in an arrondisement reminiscent of a combination of the East Village, the Lower East Side, and maybe a spot or two of the West Village, all here in New York where we live. The neighborhood is filled with mystery, intrigue, excitement, excellent food, fantastic wine, boulangeries that easily satisfy every immediate craving of savory to sweet, and markets galore. For us, we felt like Parisians.

The flat is so surprisingly roomy with it's high ceilings and still as cozy at night with the curtains drawn. The place is simple, tasteful and clean, and amazing to be in especially when listening to the rain coming down in the courtyard! We had some wonderful little meals there from our local purchases, with some finer foods out to match. Ah. It is unique.

Christophe , the owner, is excellent in communicating and responding to all concerns. Even though he was away when we arrived, he arranged to have Lou take over to meet us and show us the in's and out's of the flat, and also as an added bonus, she gave us a walk around the immediate area. If there was anything we needed to know she too, responded to us immediately. In the week that followed we eventually had the pleasure of meeting Christophe, and he is as genuine in person as he is in email. Just a pleasure.

This has to have been one of our sweetest vacays. All the reviews are saying such good things for a reason.

The Absolute Best!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second property I've rented from Christophe and it is as wonderful as the first! The flat is spacious and well furnished with absolutely everything you could need for a comfortable stay in Paris. Christophe and his team have done a really good job making sure their properties are pleasant places in which to stay. The washer/dryer is located in a really fun part of the building--Christophe will give you a tour. While you share the machine with others, I used the machine once without having to wait a turn. The building is filled with families. I like the sounds of life and enjoyed hearing the voices of children from time to time. This is a very quiet building, but if you're lucky you'll be treated to a 'concert' by the budding pianist somewhere in the building.

I loved the location! The area is one of those really fun areas where down the street in one direction you can find every shop you'd need and in another direction you'd find really interesting architecture. As an older woman who travels alone, I'm very alert to possible situations. This area always felt safe and secure.

Christophe is an absolute joy to work with! He answered my emails within minutes. His tours of the neighborhoods are always filled with interesting facts and good recommendations. He helped me order a taxi for my return and was extremely kind about all my questions. I would rent another property from him in a heartbeat--and I certainly hope I can again!

April in Paris

  • 5 of 5

3 weeks in Paris oh la la! This review is late - life catches up with you quickly after a holiday. Christophe was great to work with before arriving in Paris. Always prompt to answer my endless email questions and to meet him in person upon arrival was delightful. He loves his neighbourhood and as he showed us around it seemed that everything was "his favourite." We have rented an apartment in Paris near the Bastille before so this apartment had a different feel and gave us the opportunity to explore a new area. And this neighbourhood is very eclectic! We enjoyed many of Christophe's suggestions like 52 Faubourg Saint Denis and discovered Bistro Bellet on our own and would recommend both for dinner. Could not get a reservation at Frenchie's this time or last time, but loved Frenchie's Wine Bar - great food and vibe so we went a couple of times. No reservations but go early and you will get in and it is an short walk from the apartment. Also recommend Aux Deux Amis and must try standing room only but so fun and delicious L'Avant Comptoir. Metro No. 8 & 9 are close by and can take you, or connect you, to other Metro lines, so you can travel all around Paris - which we did! We also took train in from airport and then metro from Gard Nord which brings you a block from the apartment - couldn't be easier or cheaper. We walked and explored and ate and sipped and walked some more. We booked a afternoon of foodie fun with Wendy Lyn too. And lucky us, we had amazing weather, sunny and warm each day. We had even planned a quick trip to London - again easy from Gard Nord - but sadly were sick for a couple days so missed out. The apartment is convenient and well set up for short stays. After staying for 3 weeks however, we did make a couple of suggestions to Christophe and he was responsive as they were meant to help make the experience better. The bed is very comfortable, pillows too and the shower is great. We enjoyed the piano lessons each Monday from an apartment above us too. Happy to recommend Atelier 34!

Great place to stay in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortable and convenient for exploring Paris. We walked everywhere and could come and drop off bags at the apartment if needed. It was a great experience being able to live close to Parisians for a few days and get a local feel! Christophe was very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this apartment!

Quiet Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and convenient. Great neighborhood for food and restaurants. I walked to the Louvre regularly, and to the Pompidou, the new Picasso Museum, and to the Marais. There are 2 metros close by as well. The apartment is very quiet which is rare in Paris. A lovely refuge with a very comfortable bed, great shower, small kitchen, and the nicest host ever. Christophe was responsive and very helpful throughout my 5 week stay. I will be back.
