|The apartment is in the 10th Arrondissement, just steps from the romantic Canal St. Martin. It is a 4th floor apartment, oriented east and west with an elevator.
The apartment is charming and bright, with lovely oak floors. The building is a classic, pierre de taille (the "upscale" facing material used in the early 1900's).
The street starts at the Canal St. Martin, a still working canal which has been turned into a perfect outdoor park and public space. The streets bordering the canal are turned into pedestrian only thoroughfares on the weekends. This pleasant and very family-oriented neighborhood is also young, vibrant and hip with new restaurants and cafes popping up regularly. The Jardin Villemin is a small park around the corner.
The major train station, Gare de L'Est, is less than 5 minutes by foot, with access to metro lines 4,5, & 7, as well as RER line E. Metro station Jacques Bonsergent is even closer. Numerous buses can be found at this busy terminal. The central location of the apartment means walking is an option too, the Pompidou Center, Paris's museum of modern art, is about 15 minutes' walk, as well as the Marais, and a little further afield, Les Halles and the Palais Royale.
One bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has two singles. The living room has a convertible sofa-bed.
