Are you or is someone you know looking for a place to stay in Paris?
Our apartment is located at Rue du Chateau, 75014 in Paris.
The nearest metro line is two minutes away #13 Pernety, which is a direct line to the Champs Elysee, the Porte de Vanves brocante and St Ouen the largest antique market in the world and more. Can you believe the luck that I had to have a direct line to two places on earth that I love... antiquing heaven.
Our apartment is a one bedroom, one bath, with a large living/dining room and kitchen 650 square feet.
Our apartment is in a very family oriented, multi cultural neighborhood. Across the street there is a bakery, on the other side there is a cafe, and a restaurant on the other corner. Our building is small with three private apartments, ours being one of them. Our apartment is located on the third floor without an elevator, which means 44 steps from top to bottom.
Everything you might need is located within five minutes on foot from of our apartment: A grocery store, a fruit and vegetable shop, a flower shop, many restaurants, cafes, nightlife, bars, bookstore, wine shop, cheese shop, gift shops, pharmacy, tailor, dry cleaning, galleries, hair salon, cobblestone streets, hidden parks... it is a neighborhhood that takes you to the center of real life as a Parisian.
We only rent it a few weeks out of the year. So if you are interested it is best to contact as early as you can.

Our apartment is furnished with personal items and antiques, it is our second home.
Most of the antiques that are in the apartment I bought at Porte Vanves brocante which is nearby.
If you ever need a guide to the brocantes-antique markets let me know, I will gladly show you around either in Paris or Provence.
From the bedroom there are two steps down into the entrance.
From this photo (above) the entrance (door) is to the right after the picture easel.
My Mother in Law and my husband bought the apartment over thirty years ago.
In 2013 we renovated it, what an adventure that was.
The pieces of wood that you see (above) in the entrance , we discovered during the renovation. They are the "skeleton walls" as I call them. We chiseled layers upon layers of plaster, mortar and rocks to expose this section of wall. I had slivers from sanding them for days.
Worth every one of them.
Our apartment has five long classic windows which allows it to be a sunny place.
The living area.
We now have a large rug under that round coffee table.
One of the corners of our apartment, a gathering of antiques that I found at the nearby brocante.
A wooden centuries old statue, a console that I painted and a collection of worn loved books from the 1700s.
The door on the right leads into the bathroom. Behind the bust on the pedestal is the kitchen.
With many pieces being antiques, such as the dishes and silverware. Plenty of cupboards and counter space.
Antiques that you can live with, love worn, useful, nearly practical always enchanting.
As we stay in our apartment often, we have created it to be like our home in Provence, comfortable, personal, inviting...
we hope others feel the same way, "At Home" in Paris.
We have silverware and pretty tabletop items for you to use to make dining feel special, or at least to let you know you are in France.
A view of the kitchen.
The appliances are behind doors, and behind the counter as well, we did this to incorporate the kitchen into the living space, and not make it stand out as a kitchen , but blend in as a living space.
Note: There is a laundromat located across the single lane street.
Open until eight pm. Laundry soap can be purchased on site. A dry cleaner (across the street) is also available.
Basic supplies such as: Olive oil, vinegar, coffee, tea, sugar, pasta, spices, wine, toiletries, dish soap...
are included to use if need be.
View of the dining room.
We gutted the apartment to create a larger airy space. We took down six walls.
When you are walking up those 44 steps to our apartment image the debris we had to carry.
We often adding things... this is last year's view, this year we added a new demi lune cupboard to the back corner.
And a wall of dishes.
A view of a corner in our apartment, an alcove we discovered when taking a wall down.
The baluster is from one of the oldest light shop in Marseille.
When the shop moved, the took the balusters that their great father had made,
and turned them into lamps. I bought this one before it was transformed and turned it into a lamp.
The newest edition a demi lune cupboard with platters from the 1700s. I am constantly adding them. At last count there were 13.
