A city idyll
Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis is a haven of peace in the heart of Paris, a quiet and luminous oasis just off a busy street near the Canal Saint-Martin. It is built on three levels, with high ceilings, skylights, and two large, extensively planted terraces. Designed by an Italian architect, it is decorated with a bohemian mix of Scandinavian pieces and some Indian and Moroccan furnishings. Each room looks onto the central terrace, where you can dine al-fresco on hot summer evenings, under a fig tree.
The entrance is on the ground floor. Stairs lead straight up to the first floor, where a passageway runs past a bathroom (with soaking tub and separate shower) to the first two bedrooms: a sweetly simple double which looks out on a magnolia tree, and a large, characterful children’s room. Also on this floor is the large sitting room, a double-height space with a beamed ceiling that’s made homely by colourful sofas and armchairs. Walls are lined with books. At the far end is the well equipped open kitchen, and just beyond the wooden dining table, long windows open onto the first of the two terraces.
Another floor up, everything still feels relaxed. The master bedroom (which has a turquoise-tiled ensuite, also with soaking tub and separate shower) is a bright space brightened by bohemian accessories. It looks out onto the second, extensively planted terrace up a set of wooden steps. With its tree-shaded bench, this nook feels delightfully tucked away.
This home doesn't have air-conditioning, so ask us if you'd like to have fans for your stay.
Please be aware that you can't completely block the light in the master and third bedrooms as the curtains are not blackout curtains.
There are no curtains in the second bedroom but the magnolia on the terrace provide the necessary shadow and there is no vis à vis.
This house has three storeys.
There is a sofabed in the sitting room which can sleep two additional guests. Please let us know if you would like this set up for your stay. We will also set up a collapsible wardrobe.
There is no hanging space in the second and master bedrooms, so we'll set up a hanging rail for your stay.
