About our home

Our charming apartment has entirely been redone six months ago. Situated on the fourth floor (with elevator) of a building constructed in the beginning of the 20th century, it is very bright and the setup of the rooms is well designed. Equipped with a fast Internet connection, TV, free land line phone calls (even free calls to mobiles in the USA), our cozy apartment provides sufficient space for four people (one queen-sized bedroom, one convertible couch in the living room). During the summer months, you can even enjoy breakfast or lunch in the sun - all you have to do is to open the window that gives access to a tiny balcony. Knowing that there are no direct neighbors on the opposite site, your holiday experience will be taken on a different level, tasting French cuisine on our authentic Parisian bistro table and its two metal folding chairs. To complete the presentation of our apartment, you will have a bathroom with shower and a basin, a fully-equipped kitchen (incl. washing machine and a drying rack), a separate toilet as well as a small walk-in closet at your disposal.

Notre charmant appartement a été refait à neuf il y a six mois. Boiserie, moulures, meublé avec gout, il répond parfaitement à ce que l'on imagine d'un appartement Parisien.
Il est composé d'une entrée indépendante, d'un salon, d'une cuisine équipée, d'une chambre, d'un dressing, d'une salle d'eau et de toilette séparé.
L'appartement est très lumineux et l'on peut meme déjeuner au soleil lors de belles journées d'été. L'appartement est situé au quatrième étage avec ascenseur dans une charmante copropriété.
Très agréable à vivre pour deux comme pour quatre, car les pièces sont indépendantes, il est parfait pour un séjour à PARIS.


More about us

  1. We are a young French-Austrian couple that lives and works in Paris. While Camille works at the French parliament, Marcus is a public affairs consultant (and cycles to work every day).

    Friends told us about the possibility to exchange our apartment, and we thought to give it a try. The concept is great and allows to discover different corners of the globe, while sharing his home with others who enjoy traveling. We'd like to exchange our apartment in July/August 2011.

    Nous nous appellons Camille et Marcus.
    Nous sommes un couple franco-autrichien amoureux de Paris.
    Camille travaille au Parlement français et Marcus dans les affaires publiques.
    Nous voyageons beaucoup à travers l'Europe et pour découvrir des horizons plus lointains, nous avons décidé de tenter l'échange d'appartement. C'est une expérience donc nouvelle pour nous mais nous sommes très confiants dans ce système car nos amis nous en ont dit le plus grand bien. Nous souhaitons planifier pour aout principalement un échange d'appartement. Alors échangeons d'abord par mail et voyons si nous pouvons échanger nos maisons!

Where is it?


Our authentic Parisian apartment is located in the 11th district behind Place de la République on the trendy street Oberkampf.

In the 19th century, the area used to be home to gold-beaters, boilermakers and metal casters. Nowadays, a variety of small retail businesses have replaced the craft shops and over the last couple of years, the area around our apartment became a hot spot for young working couples with children and well known for its animated nightlife. It offers numerous tasty restaurants, trendy bars (with happy hours) and almost unlimited entertainment possibilities. Be it the Café Charbon with its charming interiors just around the corner, the Bellevilloise with its extravagant diner shows or the different cafés around the Place verte, the neighborhood provides exciting discoveries for everybody.

Our apartment is close to public transport (5 minutes walk)and a footstep away from an open air market or supermarkets that are open until late. It is a great starting point to explore the French capital : Just around the corner, you'll find the romantic canal of St. Martin with its bridges and docks, the modern opera of Bastille, the Place de la République or the impressing parc Buttes Chaumont. And don't forget, our apartment is 20 minutes away from North station, meaning that you can reach London, Brussels and Amsterdam by train in no time (2h20 for London, 1h20 for Bruxelles and 3h15 for Amsterdam).

Notre appartement se situe dans le quartier à la mode qu'est Oberkampf.

Ancien quartier des métallurgistes, des industriels au XIX e siècle, aujourd'hui, les Parisiens s'y retrouvent pour partager un repas en terrasse, un café ou encore une bière dans les nombreux restaurants, les brasseries pratiquant les happy hours jusque tard et les cafés de la rue Oberkampf.
A deux pas, se situent un marché riche de beaux fruits et légumes, le canal saint Martin, la place de la République, la Bastille avec son opéra et le quartier du Marais.
Vous serez à dix minutes à vélo, en métro ou en bus du centre de Paris.
