Parisian style, sleeps 2-4, near to Montorgueil - the best food street in Paris
If you want to stay somewhere that's not your run-of-the-mill rental apartment and you enjoy great design and being in beautiful surroundings, this place is for you. We have worked hard to create a place that has all the flair of a hip hotel but with the comfort and ease of having your own apartment.
We are situated in small 300 year old building. There is no lift but we are only the 2nd floor so it is not as strenuous and many infamous Paris 'walk-ups'. The communal corridor has been sympathetically restored and the building is clean and quiet.
With 3.5m ceilings and large windows, it feels very spacious for it's 32sqm size. It has been decorated with a mix of antiques and modern convenience and luxury. The beautiful, large kitchen table means you'll enjoy eating in as much as exploring the fantastic local restaurants.
All bed linen is good quality 100% cotton and pillows and quilts are goose feather and down. (We also have non-allergenic pillows available on request).
We fully renovated the apartment 5 years ago and have recently given it a 'touch-up' with new tiling in the bathroom and a fresh coat of paint.
Radiant under-floor heating keeps the place cozy in the winter and high-ceilings and fans keep it cool in the summer.

About Kate Leury Nielsen
We are a French/Australian couple who have lived in all kinds of places around the world. We currently live on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean where we own and operate an eco resort called Manicou River.
Kate Leury Nielsen purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Kate Leury Nielsen chose Bonne-Nouvelle
We have always loved this part of Paris so when we decided to buy we limited our search to the 2nd Arrondissement. When we bought this apartment it was an absolute mess. We lovingly gut renovated it over a year and finally finished at the end of 2010 just time to spend 2 months there for our honeymoon. Wherever we live in the world, we always call Paris home and we try to spend at least a few weeks in the apartment every year. We designed it to be a home for ourselves, not just a rental apartment and we believe this is reflected in the comfort and details we have included. Please make yourself at home.
What makes this Apartment unique
Perfect location - a quite street in the middle of one of the cities hippest and most up-and-coming neighbourhoods. Underfloor heating - wonderful in winter. Really great shower - unusual in Paris.

Great location, great apartment- with continued maintenance ,will be a 5 star!
First off, we love this apartment and we love the location. This is our second time staying here, and last time it was a five star review. Unfortunately the apartment has not been maintained at the level it requires. The shower overflowed on the first day, flooding the bedroom floor right out to the hallway. Maite arrived later that day to fix the situation - but it could have been a disaster had we not unpacked and removed everything from the floor prior to using the shower. This apartment has the potential to be fabulous - with lots of great amenities and an outstanding location. With proper maintenance, and someone giving it the attention required, it will be a five star once again. We hope to return in the future.
Thanks for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
We are sorry for the incident with the shower overflowing. There is a small basket in the drain which collects debris to prevent the drains from becoming blocked. This basket is supposed to be emptied during each cleaning. Unfortunately we had a new cleaner recently and she neglected to do this before your stay. She has now been reminded of the importance of this task so we expect that this will not happen again in the future. We're glad that our local manager was able to visit the apartment quickly to fix the problem for you.
The apartment has been repainted and the bathroom retiled since your last visit so we do our best to keep it well maintained.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We loved our stay at Rue de Clery - everything about it, the location, the easy communication and check in, the helpful referrals, and the clean, quiet apartment. It was a perfect spot to relax during our stay and had everything we needed, including delicious coffee, a wine opener, and good knives! We look forward to staying again when we next come to Paris. Thank you!
So glad you guys had a good time. We hope to welcome you back soon. Remember we regularly run special offers for returning guests. Follow us on FaceBook to keep in touch.
Happy New Year.

Nice Little Apartment
The kitchen and living area are nice but the bathroom and bedroom were showing signs of wear (eg.the cushions on the bed were a bit grubby and the bathroom was showing signs of water damage.) A few things contributed to my "average" rating.. For example we arrivedi after 27 hours of travelling and didn't have any dry bathroom towels ( the tumble dryer wasn't working). Also, the TV remote wasn't working and we were told to buy new batteries for it (not a big deal. We weren't there to watch TV but these things should be in working order). Great restaurant recommendations provided and the apartment is well located ....so close to our favourite.... Frenchies!
Thanks for the honest review. We are so sorry for the disappointments you experienced during your stay. Unfortunately we don't live in France can't visit the apartment as often as we would like. This means that we are reliant on our local management and cleaning company to keep things at the standard we would expect. Unfortunately in this case it seems as though this was not done.
The good news is we have been in Paris staying at the apartment for the past few weeks and are pleased to say we have worked hard to bring the place back up to scratch. The bathroom has been renovated, the shower retiled, the whole apartment has been given a fresh coat of paint and we have cleaned top to bottom and dry-cleaned all the cushions, pillows and duvets.
We have also hired a new cleaner and had a meeting with the local manager about improving the standard of service.
We do wish you had contacted us during your stay as we certainly would have done our best to rectify some of these problems immediately.
If you do consider us for a future visit, we're sure you will be pleasantly surprised.

Summerdays in Paris
This nice little apartment is located right in the heart of Paris in a quite side street near to restaurants, supermarket, shops, etc. A super location for experiencing Paris by foot.
Wir hatten einen schönen Aufenthalt in diesem hübschen, wirklich sehr geschmackvoll eingerichteten Appartement, in dem es an nichts fehlt.
Die Lage ist ebenfalls toll: sehr zentral, wenige Meter von der belebten, sympathischen Fußgängerzone "Montorgueil" entfernt und von einer Velib-Fahrradstation.
Unkomplizierte und verlässlicher Kontakt mit den Besitzern, bzw, Maïté.
my new home in Paris...
What a wonderful property and what a convenient location - it's easy to see why Kate & Patrick fell in love with the neighborhood and the flat. It's a wonderfully bright space located a block away from a major food area and pedestrian zone, convenient to all of the major attractions and steps away from various public transportation options. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone heading to Paris (and in fact already have!)
I was pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the owner and property manager (Maite). When Maite realized that I hadn't received some communications (a website problem, not related to the property) she called me prior to my departure to make sure I had the right information and even checked on me when I was later than anticipated (weather challenges, not directional!)
Bottom line is that this was a great space and I can't wait to get back here.
Perfectly located in the centre of Paris, this is the part of Paris to be in if you like access to all the tourist sites without being in a 'touristy' area.
15 minutes walk in any direction can take you to The Louvre, Le Marais, Pompidou Centre and a whole range of other great neighbourhoods, sites and museums.
We have many great local markets, shops, restaurants and bars, (many of which we have sampled and left a list of recommendations in the flat.) The famous restaurant 'Frenchies' is just around the corner!
The wonderful market street rue de Montorgueil, with it's fabulous food shops, partiseries and cafés, is just down the road.
Three different Metro lines are within a moments walk and Gare du Nord (where the Eurostar comes in) is just 5 minutes in a cab or three stops on the Metro. You can even walk from the Eurostar if you don't have too much luggage!
If you like music, we are surrounded by walking-distance Jazz Clubs including the historical 'New Morning' where Miles Davis used to play. And the Paris Opera is just up the road.
If you've come to Paris to shop you can be at the department stores of Les Grand Boulevards, the arcades of Les Halles or the chic boutiques of rue st Honore in less than 15 mins walk.
Or you can be down to Pont Neuf and across into the Left Bank and St Germain de Pres in a pleasant 20 minute stroll.
Our neighbourhood is very well serviced with pick-up points for Paris' easy-to-use bicycle and electric car rental services.
Despite all this action, our street is small and relatively quite.
It really is hard to find a better location in Paris.
