This apartment is located a short walk from the charming and hip Canal St. Martin; the trendy northern Marais; the tree-lined Boulevard Richard Lenoir with its famous food markets and children’s parks; the cafés, restaurants and fashionable boutiques of Faubourg St. Antoine; and the blossoming restaurant scene of Parmentier, Oberkampf and Bastille.
This lovely apartment spans the entire floor on which it is located, providing the type of privacy rarely experienced in typical Parisian apartment buildings. Passing through the entrance’s double doors, one is struck by the sheer size of this modern Paris vacation rental. Two comfortable salons, a dining room seating up to eight and a north-facing balcony spanning the entire length of the apartment invite you to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing and exploration. The sunlit kitchen is fully equipped with all the modern amenities you need to cook your own French gourmet meal, and open-air markets offering the freshest ingredients are just minutes away. There is a small balcony off the kitchen for a coffee or a sunlit moment.
The apartment’s four spacious bedrooms, all bathed in natural light and each featuring unique decorative touches and charm, are roomier than standard Parisian hotel rooms.
