We've renovated a sweet and spacious Paris apartment in a great area by the canal. There's kitsch wallpaper, surround sound Blu-ray, free wi-fi and a lot more so that your stay will be as comfortable as possible! The apartment sleeps up to four people, making it a great choice if you're travelling as a family or with relatives. A baby bed is also available All the details, rates, availability and secure online booking are on our website We are two individuals (not a faceless agency) who love Paris and are happy to share our passion with others! We have just two apartments to rent in the city, and we've put our heart and soul into both of them! Hopefully, our care and attention to detail can be felt, and we hope to be able to welcome you to our Canal Apartment in Paris sometime soon!

We have just two apartments to rent in the city, and we've put our heart and soul into both of them! Hopefully, our care and attention to detail can be felt, and we hope to be able to welcome you to our Canal Apartment in Paris sometime soon! In the living room: - flatscreen Panasonic TV - Panasonic surround sound Blu-ray/DVD/CD system - iPod dock - cable TV with English-language channels - free broadband wi-fi access (bring your own laptop) - large sofa that can also double as a sofabed - glow-in-the-dark wallpaper (!) and old school French fittings In the bedroom: - comfy double bed - storage space for clothes, wardrobe for hanging clothes - the kitschest wallpaper you've ever seen in your life - a duck! (see photos) In the kitchen: - dishwasher - microwave oven - gas hob and oven - refrigerator with freezer section - washing machine In the bathroom: - shower - towel heater - toilet - kitsch dog picture with rabbits! Plus, double glazing and central heating throughout. We've done as much as possible to make the apartment eco-friendly. All our electricity comes from renewable sources and all cleaning products are eco-friendly. For this apartment, we really wanted somewhere that would feel cosy and fun: the parquet is original and restored, the wallpaper in the living room glows in the dark (totally safe) and we've tried to make the place as colourful and bright as possible. There are three large windows that look out onto the street, but it's calm, and the double glazing reduces any noise to almost silence. If you look out the window to the right, you'll see the bridge over the canal. There's only one canal in Paris, and it's lovely to have nearby. The area nearby has loads of great boutiques and restaurants too, plus we're within easy walking distance of Gare du Nord (Eurostar, Thalys trains to Brussels, Cologne and Amsterdam, direct links to both airports...) and Gare de l'Est. This is the area that we live in and love, and we hope you'll love it too. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 7511000129770More

Thanks for the lovely review, and glad you found lots of great food nearby! I would agree that the 10th arrondissement has a different, funkier vibe than the Left Bank. It's a great place to explore, with easy access to all of Paris. Thanks again...More
