The living room is spectacular, with massively high ceiling and designer furniture (Conran, Roche Bobois, Vitra design sofas, Cassina, and full of art. The two other bedrooms have beds on platforms in addition to the main beds, children love them. There is a second shower room with WC off the kitchen. All the double beds are king size zip and link so they can make two singles or a large double. Gather a group of friends, or bring your family or meet your extended family. . Generally for this apartment 6 adults and 3 children max is what I would recommend. . It is not suitable for more than 8 adults. Two single beds are on platforms. Rest and recuperate in style and peace and comfort after running round Paris all day! Close to subway ( five min walk, direct to all tourist areas including Eiffel Tower 20 mins) and Orly Airport 20mins Centre of Paris, Notre Dame Cathedral is 7 mins on the train, 3 stops. Easy access to Gare Du Nord for Eurostar, CDG airport one change. Parking easy and cheap in the street, 3 euros a day. UBER cars for private drivers/taxi service. Walk or cycle down river to the Notre Dame Cathedral or even to EIffel Tower. Huge supermarket round the corner, one block. Baker/boulangerie a few doors away, and a good local family run restaurant around the corner. Private roof terrace. Lots of comfortable beds. high thread count cotton sheets, duvets etc. Ceiling fans, and portable air conditioning units, electric shutters/blinds for the skylights. Laundry washer/drier available. Although this space is great for groups, I prefer not to have 'rowdy' groups, because part of the beauty of this space is the quiet and calm, and the neighbours work in these spaces and all know each other, so normal level conversation/music/tv etc is fine, but no loud noise after 10pm please. I have had some clients throwing parties, and that's just not fair and strictly not allowed. More info: Three days a week (T,W,F) you can buy fresh produce and a variety of goods at a lively open air market in front of Ivry's historic City Hall. There are bakeries and restaurants in the vicinity,including my favourite small family restaurant called the St Miguel.. The river is two blocks, with walks to Paris. It's about 3 miles to the centre. For weekend al fresco restaurants and shops there is Bercy /St Emilion Village, a converted railway yard, with a very outdoor , buzzy and continental feel, with more gourmet food. The zoo, Natural History museum is just a walk or two stops away. A short walk or bike ride takes you across the Seine to the Bois de Vincennes. This is over 200 hectares of woods and the hunting Chateau of the Kings of France , and the main zoo. There is a Velib station (bike rentals) close by and cycle paths to St Germain. Just down the street the Le Luxy theatre offers a selection of French, independent and international films, as does the MK2 Bibliothèque Nationale (BNF) cinemaplex (20 min. walk or 1 stop on RER-C). The Pathe imax cinema and 20 screens is a 5 min walk, but shows film mostly in French. The Paris 7/Diderot and the École Nationale Supérieure d'architecture de Paris campuses are about 4-5 blocks away. Disney land is a 20 min drive. In recent years, this area has experienced something of a revival and is now home to artists, writers, and musicians living and working in its reconstructed factory buildings. This post-industrial area has the highest concentration of artists in France. The perfect setting for holiday, romantic weekend, sabbatical or recent guests came to run in the Paris Marathon. More
