About our home

Our apartment is on the 4th floor with elevator.
It is nice, spacious, central and situated in a beautiful city.
It dates from 1930 and was an old wood workshop.
It has the original parquet floor and many original fixtures.
There is a large living room with kitchen (50 m2), 1 bedroom and 1 spare room that can be used as a 2nd bedroom.
There is a bathroom (shower) and a separate WC.
We have 1 bedroom and a 2nd spare room.
To convert our 2nd room into a bedroom we have 2 confortable Muji foam mattresses (70cm wide x 190cm) long that can be used either as 2 separate single mattresses or put together to make 1 large double mattress.
The apartment faces west (onto a courtyard) so gets lots of sunlight and our apartment is in a calm street.


More about us

  1. We are a French British couple and have been living in Paris for the past 25 years or so (7 years in our current apartment). We enjoy travelling, meeting people and discovering new places. Helene works for a national agency that helps developing countries, Jeremy is a designer.
    For 2018- 2019 we have taken a sabbatical year which will end this September and so we hope to find more long term exchanges if possible -2 to 3 months. However we would be open to doing shorter exchanges if necessary.
    We are very conscientious about leaving a very clean and tidy place for our exchange visitors and try to help them feel as confortable as possible during their stay at our home.

Where is it?


Our apartment is situated in an old quarter of Paris, near Bastille, with all the necessary shops you may need including many local shops, supermarkets and the Marché Aligre neighborhood market in the vicinity.
Friendly animated area with many nice restaurants, cafes & bars near by.
Easy access to public transport with subway stations (line 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, RER A) and bus stops (route 46, 56, 86) 5 minutes walk away.
As Paris is a relatively small city it is very easy to walk to many tourist sites directly from our apartment, or by bike (there is a Vélib' station in front of our apartment).
