About the property

Charming 2 bed, 2 bath steps from Canal St Martin, free pickup

Our services +++:

• We provide a free pick-up (3 nights minimum) from the airport/train station in the price of the rental, making your arrival very smooth! Our bilingual driver who will be waiting for you and will assist you with your luggage. This service is greatly appreciated by our guests, as you can see in our reviews!

• At the apartment, you will find our personalized handbook which will have tips for enjoying the neighborhood, a list of our favorite restaurants, emergency numbers and instructions for using the appliances.

• A free high speed Wi-Fi, a TV with cable in one of the bedrooms, free local calls within France, free calls to cell phones and landlines to the US and Canada, and free calls to landlines in over 200 other countries (please inquire about your particular country).

Fully renovated early summer 2014, this apartment was designed with your needs and comfort as our number one priority.

The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. Two bathrooms with large showers and two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the second one either a second queen or two single beds). The living room is great for re-grouping after a long day of visiting. There is an open kitchen that is well adapted for sharing a nice meal and the breakfast nook will make your meals very cozy!


The nearest Metro stations are Jacques Bonsergent (ligne 5) and Republique (line 3, 5, 8,,9, 11) giving you easy access to place de la Concorde, Opera, Bastille, etc.)

In the street, you have also Velib station to rent bikes 


It is perfectly located-- steps away from the Canal St Martin (a hip neighborhood perfect for those tourists who are looking for a more local experience) and a 5 minute walk from a major hub, Republique, with 5 metros running through it, allowing you to easily visit all areas of Paris!

Located on the 1st floor (with a working elevator), the apartment is on the street with all the outlet stores of many hip French brands-- watch out Dads and Husbands!! :) You are steps away from the Square des Récollets which is a beautiful park perfect for kids with a playground, a beautiful well kept public garden and lots of grass area perfect for picnics! For several years in a row, the bakery down the street was voted #1 in Paris, 'Du Pain et des Idées'.


There is high speed wifi, free local calls within France, free calls to cell phones and landlines to the US and Canada, and free calls to landlines in over 200 other countries (please inquire about your particular country).


In our continual efforts to make your stay as enjoyable and convenient as possible, we are happy to offer our guests our SMARTY phone, which will become your new Parisian best friend!!! Avoid high roaming data costs and enjoy all that technology has to offer-- 4G, unlimited calls (including abroad), and GPS services to make walking around in Paris easier-- all for the rate of 5 euros a day, essentially the cost of a fancy Parisian coffee :) Please let us know upon booking that you are interested so we can reserve a SMARTY for your stay.

Everything advertised and more

  • 5 of 5

Sophie's apartment just off the Canal St. Martin is great. Starting with the pickup at CDG, everything was wonderful. With 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, our party of 3 adults was very comfortable and would've served 4 adults just fine (our 4th traveler had to leave before we got to Paris). I've been to Paris numerous times and this is one of the nicest neighborhoods I've stayed in. It's in a lovely local neighborhood (not touristy) and only a few minutes walk to Republique so access to 4 Metro lines and the rest of Paris is easy. Great bakery down the street, cafes, bistros, restaurants, bookstores, shops. Easy walking to the Marais and other neighborhoods. And very responsive staff. All in all, a great stay and would stay here again without a doubt.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 coming to PARIS for the first time (4 kids 16,12,5,7). I really loved how the driver was waiting for us at the airport and helped with our luggage. The apartment is in a great location amongst the locals and we absolutely loved being part of the Parisian community. We would take a taxi into town each day for around $10 and when we returned home it was so peaceful in the area. We would get our fresh bread each day, go to the market, tons of cafe's and pizza around. My favorite was the very nice shopping that is immediately outside the apartment. You don't have to fight the crowds in Paris because this shopping is superb! The apartment had heated floors which was nice in the cold weather. We will be using them again on our next trip!!!!

Nice comfortable apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

It was nice and very convenient to be picked up from the airport and taken straight to the apartment by a very helpful driver. The place was being cleaned when we arrived around noon, so we left our baggage, picked up our keys and were off touring the city - it was our first visit to Paris. It is located in the The Canal Saint-Martin Neighborhood area with many cafes and restaurants. There was a popular bakery just down the road and a Thai restaurant around the corner. On the other side along the Canal there were many bars and also an Indian restaurant. There are two stations close by that we used Jacques-Bonsergent and Republique from where you can pretty much connect to anywhere in the city. Also picked up an Orange cell SIM card for my unlocked AT&T GSM phone from the Orange store in Republique area and then top up the card with unlimited data from a tobacco store down the road. This came in very handy as a backup local tourist phone (worked well in UK and Geneva as well). Also used the BNP Paribas ATM(as they have a tie up with BOA) in Republique area to get some Euros. Credit cards are accepted mostly everywhere too. Also we spoke no French but were able to get by quite okay. Picked up a 3 day unlimited Metro pass for Central Paris from station counter and we were good to go. Headed off to the Gare du Nord main station from where we boarded a bus that took us through the city all the way to Eiffel Tower. It was a great way to begin our visit.

The apartment itself was clean and warm. The kitchen was compact and nicely equipped. The showers were great! It was just two of us so we found the place to be of good size. There is a good detailed manual that explains how to use all the appliances and also about the location and how to get around etc. as I recall. Besides Sophie and Laure were very responsive to any questions or concerns. All in all it was a great stay and no issues that I can think of and with full refund of deposit credited back. Laure was also very helpful in getting us a room for one night in the nearby Le Citizen hotel upon our return from Geneva on our last leg (and return back to the US). thank you! merci beaucoup!
