About our home

Our apartment is pleasant to live in and very quiet place. It is decorated in a modern style, in an old parisian building with a nice courtyard. Located in a luminous 5th floor (there's a small lift), it has parquet floor and a flowery balcony.

There is a double living room with a fireplace and a piano where we love to have friends; it has also two French windows that we open widely during summertime to take advantage of the morning sun. The kitchen is well furnished. We have three rooms : one double bedroom and two single bedrooms; a bathroom with both shower and bath. Finally a practical scullery for the washing machine and all the little mess of the house.

The building has a on-site concierge.

More about us

  1. We are Frederic and Johanna, both of us at our early forties years old, working in publishing and communication, and we have two children, aged 10 and 16. We wish to travel in a way that would give all the family the opportunity of discovering new places, in their daily life. Excellent swap experiences convinced us to start again as soon as possible!

    One of our children is very allergic to cats and dogs, reason why we can not organise any swap where would live pets. Thank you.

Where is it?


The apartment is located in a family and very convenient area to visit Paris, near the Canal Saint Martin (East centre side of Paris). All useful shops are around (supermarket, pharmacy and bakery are just downstairs). There are a lot of public transports around and also a car park nearby. It is a typical parisian area, where there is still a kind of "Atmosphere" of Arletty, and which is lively and colorful.

There are different public gardens by there : you can go for a walk, sunbathe or also have a picnic along the Canal saint-Martin, in Les Buttes Chaumont, le Jardin de Vuillemin, or le jardin de Belleville. The area is also the good place to discover differents food with a choice of delicious restaurants, and as well a lot of vanguards shops. There are also two open-air markets nearby (Belleville on saturdays, and Bichat street on sundays morning).

From our borough, you can have direct access for all the museums, galleries and shoppings.
We are 5 minutes walking distance to the canal Saint Martin, 10 minutes to République, and the Marais or to the Buttes Chaumont.
It is even easier with public transports as there are direct buses to Hôtel de Ville, the Louvre, Beaubourg, Cité de la Musique...And even more by metro (Républic is a hub for parisian metro).
We will be glad to help you in preparing your journey in Paris!
