This South-facing apartment is 450 sq. foot (42 sq. metres) on the 6th floor of a well maintained building with an elevator, with doors out from both the bedroom and sitting-room to a private balcony overlooking the street. The light-filled bedroom has a modern, white tiled en-suite bathroom, queen-sized double bed, plenty of closets and a desk with chair (linens and towels provided) and has hardwood floors. The good-sized sitting-room has a 3-person sofa (converts to a queen sized bed) plus a dining table with 4 chairs. There is a TV and DVD player, stereo, and high-speed internet (WiFi) and telephone. The kitchen is newly renovated, separate from the sitting-room and is fully-equipped: electric hob, oven, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer, coffee maker, cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery & glassware. There is a separate toilet off the entrance hallway. There is also a private storage unit in the basement. The apartment has been recently painted and furnished and has a modern, contemporary feel.

The building has a live-in gardienne (she knows everything about the neighborhood!) and also has space for bikes in the rear courtyard. The apartment is ideally situated being close to the greenery of Canal St Martin and walkable to the Marais, yet having all amenities available on your doorstep. There are plenty of good food shops and supermarkets (open Sunday morning too), bakeries, drugstores, cafes & restaurants, bookstores. There are 2 excellent nearby open-air markets: Popincourt (Tuesdays and Friday mornings); Bastille (Thursday and Sunday mornings). There is a public swimming pool 10 minutes away by foot and a private gym (with a pool and sauna) just 5 minutes away. The area is non-touristy, yet is central enough that you are never far from sights, museums, parks, cinemas etc.

Public transportation connections are excellent for both the Right and Left bank. The No. 96 bus stops near the apartment and from there it's a 20 minute ride to the Sorbonne or 10 minutes to St. Paul for the National Archives. Close to Metro lines 3, 5, 8 and 9, it's a 25 minute journey to the Bibliotheque Francois Mitterrand. There are also several Velib bike stations within 5 minutes of the apartment and there are also secure private parking garages for rent in the neighbourhood (about 110 euros / month).

The price is 1700 euros / month - price includes all charges -- utilities (electricity, hot water, telephone, internet) and taxe d'habitation. We prefer 6+ rentals. The apartment is non-smoking and pets are not allowed. There is a 200 euro cleaning fee at the end of the lease.
