Interaction with guests

The neighbourhood

Warm and popular during the day, neighborhood becomes young at the end of the day, like East London in the 2000's and New York Lower East Side in the 90'S. A mixed population (multi-ethnics, riches stars and poor people like in all big cities), life 24/24, with the newest art galleries.
Not a tourist postcard, a lot of artists (you need to have an artist heart!).

Fresh market 4 days per week, Supermarkets 7 days a week (not so much open on Sundays in Paris).
Some of the best restaurants in the world (for the world 50's best) are few steps away (Le Chateaubriand, Le Baratin, Septime), hype bars (Le Floréal, Le Follies, l'Orillon..) and clubs (La Java). You can check on the web about "Belleville" area (like Time's out, Yep...). I did a guide with my favorite address.
Few minutes walk to République (and Haut Marais), Canal Saint Martin and Parc des Buttes Chaumont considered as the best Parc of Paris.

Getting around

Easy location for metro (station is right down the building):
Line 11 goes directly in 15 mn to the Seine (Notre Dame, Louvre, Sainte Chapelle, train to Versailles), 5 mn to Marais (or 15 mn walking), 7 mn to Pompidou Center (Beaubourg) and le Marais.
It is also direct from Gare du Nord in 15 mn (Eurostar, Thalys and train to CDG airport) and 15 mn to Nation (train to DisneylandParis);
Line 2 goes directly in 7 mn to Sacré coeur (Montmartre), 10 mn to Pigalle (Moulin Rouge), 7 mn to Père Lachaise, 30 mn to Étoile-Champs Elysées.
If you prefer bicycles, you can rent Velib just down the building.

Matthieu's place is incredible, it is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The apartment is located in an area where there are hardly any tourists and it's right by the train station. Matthieu is a wonderful host, he made us feel very welcome when we arrived and has some wonderful tips on places to visit in the city. If you are planning a visit to Paris you can't go wrong staying here!!

Matthieu's communication was amazing, quick responses and very willing to help out wherever possible. The loft is exactly as shown in the pictures. In addition, there is everything you'll need, pots/pans, oil, salt/spices, q-tips, extra sheets/towels...etc. It's one of the most fully equipped airbnbs I've stayed in. The location is amazing, sitting directly above a metro station and surrounded by at least 5 grocery stores and tons of cafes/boulangeries. The second story of the loft is about 4 ft. high so make sure you're limber enough to climb & bend.

Matthieu's apartment in Belleville is a great introduction to our trip to Paris. It is fantastically located to the metro which can take you just about anywhere in the city and to/from the train stations. The apartment itself is beautiful with incredible amount of natural lighting and with all of the amenities you would need for your stay in Paris. Matthieu as a host was very friendly, great communication and provided all the tips to the neighborhood and maps to the city. We would absolutely recommend staying at this nice apartment in Belleville!

Perfect place. Convenient and close by metro station, shops and restaurants. The appartment was exactly as on the pictures. The bed upstairs is good, make sure you don't bump your head. We slept well. We had a good time. And even in a busy area no noise in the appartment. We reccommend this place.

This place was perfectly located for getting around. Super cute inside, very helpful host. The restaurants nearby are great but not pricey. Quiet apartment on a busy street. I would stay again.

We stayed at Matthieu's apartment in Bellville for 10 days. Located in a vibrant neighbourhood the metro was on our doorstep. It was the perfect base from which to explore Paris. Matthieu was a superb host, friendly and knowledgeable. The apartment was quiet and a comfortable place to relax in the evening. We had a fabulous holiday.

Great clean apartment. The metro is literally down the apartment stairs- couldn't ask for easier access, many stores, restaurants and things to do in the neighborhood as well as easy access to the main tourist areas of Paris in 15min by metro. Couldn't have asked for a better or more helpful host and would definitely stay again
