Lovely 2 fireplace 48 square meters flat in central Paris 11th arrondissement, in a traditional Paris Haussmanian building, 2 subway stops from Bastille, walking distance from 4 different subway lines: 8, 9, 1 and 2.
Photos are old, now the apartment is much better: I redecorated and it looks like Istambul...in Paris. Turkish lamps, rug, chinese closet, japanese fans, and and insane amount of frames and artwork to cover all of the walls. If you are a creative person, you will love it !
This location is priceless: you will be staying in a lively area with lots of cute award-winning-yet-not-expensive restaurants and venues, which is quiet and very safe also for single women at night, s you could go out at night in the Marais and walk back home !
This flat includes a fully functional kitchen with 4 gaz stove, a real oven, a washing machine with dryer, a professional italian espresso machine (that works with any coffee brand you like), mixer, juicer, yogurt machine (yes! easy to work!), a landline you can use to call all french numbers and all landlines in europe for free with no limits, a professional steamer so you can wear all your favorite clothes, a bathtub, WIFI internet connection, a huge television, clean towels, sheets are also furnished.
I also leave a guide with answers to the FAQ about the area as well as my secret guide to the best non-touristic food, shopping and relaxing time in Paris.
This flat is pet and smoke free, no risk of allergies.
I can accomodate here from 1 person up to 4, knowing that I have a queen bed in the room and a japanese foldable bed in the living room for 2 as well, although a little smaller.
Very nice room with queen bed and 2 fireplace.
You can share with friends (up to 4 people can sleep here but it's ideal for a couple).
The room has a queen bed for 1 or 2 people.
The livingroom has a japanese bed for 1 or 2 people.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please note: 6th storey no elevator !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You also have here public bicycle rentals... absolutely everything is walking distance.
The house is equipped with : TV, téléphone that you can use to call all french numbers (mobile and landlines), WIFI internet, washing machine, bathtub, hairdryer, hair straightener, towels, linen, oven, water boiler, professional italian coffee machine, gas stove, independent heating, and en extra futon for your guest.
I will not be in Paris ! I rent the house when I travel, but I will leave you my document with my special Must-See places of Paris !
Everything! the 11th is the artists' area, so you will find lots of inspiration, good food for a reasonable price and great clubs. All of this while staying in a safe area where you can totally walk home after partying in Bastille or in the Marais, yes, even as a single lady.
This is the best location possible to get around in Paris: with 4 different subway lines (8/1/9/2), from 1 minute to 6 minutes walking distance, 1 taxi station 1 min walking distance, several buses and 2 bicycle rentals !
no parties, no excessive noise in the building please !
please don't eat my food, it's not included. You can use salt, sugar and I usually leave a bottle of french wine for when you arrive.
smoking not allowed, but other than that I am not a maniac. You can smoke out of the window if you must. I will leave a nice, clean apartment and simply expect the same courtesy from my guests. Leave the sheets and towels in the bin when you leave and my maid will take care of that.
Maras Wohnung liegt in einem sehr netten Viertel mit schönen Geschäften und Cafés und guter Verkehrsanbindung. Dass sie im 6. Stock ohne Aufzug ist, weiß man ja, der Aufstieg lohnt sich. Sehr hübsches, schnuckelig eingerichtetes Apartment, wir hatten alles für uns, es waren auch keine Katzen da, wie ein anderer hier mal schrieb. Mara war sehr aufmerksam, hat meiner Tochter einen Stoffhasen hingelegt, viele Zettel mit hilfreichen Nachrichten hinterlassen. Man hat bei ihr Internetanschluss und kann kostenlos weltweit ins Festnetz und auf französische Handys telefonieren. Danke, liebe Mara, wir kommen gerne wieder.
We were very fortunate staying at Mara's apartment. The place was comfortable and offered great amenities. We slept very comfortably. The location was stupendous. The line 8 metro is only 3 minutes walking distance and connects you everywhere. There are plenty of dining choices as well as shopping. I couldn't recommend a better place than Mara's. When we come back again to Paris, my family and I look forward to stay here again. Thanks Mara for everything!
Mara's apartment is very conveniently located, right next to a metro stop and nearby many restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and cafes. The neighborhood is quiet and enjoyable. The apartment, located on the 6th (7th for Americans) floor of the building, is a bit of a hike and not for the faint of heart, particularly if you are carrying groceries and suitcases up and down. The apartment was nicely furnished, although a little dusty. Mara was a very agreeable host and responded to all inquiries very promptly. We really enjoyed our stay; it was a great option for this price point.
My wife and I spent 10 days in Paris on our honeymoon. After a long search we settled on Mara's apartment.
Everything as described, including photos, is an accurate depiction of the apartment. Most of the time Mara is very quick to respond via email and she provides a detailed House Manual even before you arrive on how everything works - from the appliances to the area around the apartment. She is friendly and always helpful.
The street in front of the apartment is indeed lively with some sort of youth hostel across the street, a restaurant down on the one corner (40m away) and an Irish pub on the other corner across the street. There were always activities and on-goings till very late at night/early morning, but never too noisy that it bothered us sleeping, especially when we closed the windows.
We spent very little time in the apartment, being out and about all day, and it suited our purposes fine - i.e. exploring the city.
Even if you had to stay in the apartment for long periods of time during the day it should be fine, but then only for 2 people, not 4.
We were there during warm pleasant weather, so I cannot comment on the apartment in cold times, but all rooms are fitted with hot water heaters that are heated with gas. They were switched on when we arrived and they heated the apartment quite noticeably. We had to switch it of since the weather was fine. Opening the windows affords a nice breeze through the apartment on hot days.
And yes, it is really on the top floor with no elevator, as described. Good exercise :)
Thanks Mara, we will stay there again.
Wonderful experience staying in Mara's flat--great location, beautifully appointed and big! Thanks Mara!
The apartment is situated on the 6th floor so windows meet the sun in the morning and the atmosphere in the space together with all attributes is warm and inviting. We really enjoyed staying there! We haven't met with Mara but she was attentive to all questions and concerns we had. Thank you, Mara!
My name is Mara, I am a a funny, easy going italian girl (so they say !)
I love to meet people from all over the world and exchange delicious recipes to share with my family and friends (thank you Lola for your coconut Thai chicken !)
I travel a lot between Paris and NY for my job: this is why I can rent my apartment when I am away.
I like to buy old pictures to hang on my walls and make my flat into a living art exhibition.
I hope you like.
