The 3rd arrondissement of Paris is a region of many faces. You’ll find monuments and traditional architecture around every corner, as well as some of the most modern and trendy pockets of the city. This multi-leveled home sits just six minutes away from the historic Place de la République, and only ten from the hip waterside drinking spots of the Canal Saint-Martin. In a similar way to its diverse surroundings, the home is an eclectic mix of interiors that’s sure to surprise you. On an elegant street of typically Parisian white buildings, step inside to a charming display of old-world-meets-new. Chunky, timber beams are the order of the day in this home, with every floor featuring gorgeous original wood. Up the modern staircase, with wire bannisters, the first floor is where we imagine you’ll spend most of your time. This lounge and dining area offers understated seating and a bright space lit by four windows. There’s even a quirky glass panel in part of the floor – wave up your friends from below to come join you for a glass of pinot noir at dusk.
Home truths: *The main entrance is private to your home
*There's a washing machine but no tumble dryer – your host provides a clothes horse instead

*At full capacity, four guests will be sleeping on sofa beds – there is a double sofa bed in each of the two lounges
*As this home allows for self check-in, you might not meet your host in person
*There is no dedicated workspace, but plenty of laptop-friendly spots
*Your host can arrange for airport transfer, breakfast, and book tickets for an extra fee
*You'll need to climb stairs to get around this home – there's also a sloped ceiling above the bed which might not suit taller guests
