Charming furnished balcony apartment in central Paris

The apartment, suitable for a single person or a couple without kids, is in a lovely residential neighbourhood in central Paris, safe for women, with great transport links, in walking distance of the Eurostar terminal at Gare du Nord, as well as Montmartre and the Opera Garnier. There are 3 metro lines, a direct bus across the Seine to the Luxembourg gardens, and the rue des Martyrs, a good shopping street with restaurants, close by. The 54m2 apartment in a Haussman-style building is fully furnished and located on the 4th floor with an elevator. It has wooden floors and fireplaces and includes a balcony with table and chairs, a double bedroom, living room, bathroom with separate WC, a small fully equipped kitchen and a study. Close by there is a farmer's market, on Friday afternoons. Paris is a very compact city, swift to cross by metro and easier than it looks on foot! Rent includes all bills but I add on 5 euros a week from Oct 1 to March 31 for heating. It would be grand if occasionally you could water the plants.

About Me
After initially training as an historian at UCL I became a foreign correspondent working in Europe and Latin America for Reuters and the New York Times, and am now writing fiction. I've travelled extensively and have been both an AirBnb host and guest, so am sensitive to what it's like on both sides of the equation. I am researching a new book and need to be near the libraries in central London, so am looking temporarily for a place in the UK.
