Despite being in the heart of the 4th arrondissement, this home, nestled in a quiet courtyard, manages to stay serene. While only four minutes from the Bréguet-Sabin metro, arriving at this location feels like a secret garden, with lush foliage leading up to your front door. Inside, a generous living space is bathed in natural light from large French windows. And the innovative use of glass partitions for the kitchen and bedroom keep the layout modern and spacious, yet very stylish. With touches of both mid-century charm and industrial utilitarianism, the result is a fresh but cosy decor. Our favourite piece has to be the feature wall of quirky animal portraits (maybe your furry friend could join in?). Outside, if you’re looking for landmarks, you’ll be spoilt for choice between two exceptionally famous squares. The Place de la Bastille is a four-minute walk, and the Place des Vosges is six. The latter is also home to an important attraction for fans of French literature – the Maison de Victor Hugo. Less than 2km away, we recommend making the trendy Canal Saint-Martin your top spot for drinking and dining. Street food and waterside cocktails are definitely on the menu.
Home truths: *This home is compact, we recommend a maximum of four guests
*There is some wear and tear, particularly on the floor
*To get to the bathroom, you need to walk through the main bedroom
*As this home allows for self check-in, you won't meet your host
*As the master bedroom overlooks an inner courtyard, you don't have expansive views or lots of natural light
*The second bedroom lacks storage space – it also only has a window looking onto the internal living space
*At full capacity, two guests will be sleeping on a double sofa bed in the lounge
*The kitchen is lacking some basic crockery and cooking utensils, so it might not be the best choice if you're planning family meals in
