Lovely apartment Quartier Oberkampf (11eme) available from December, 2020

60 square meter, two bedroom apartment in central Paris (11th arrondissement), new kitchen, available for rent from 15 April 2020.
We are a bi-cultural family (American mother and Argentinian-Italian father, and two children) who lived in Paris for a decade. We now live in Geneva, and wish to rent our Paris apartment to a trustworthy family, couple, or individual who are really looking for a "home" while they are in Paris. It's a great neighborhood (with a lovely public school), a friendly building....Overall, a very cherished apartment!

The apartment is on rue Oberkampf, in the “Quartier Oberkampf” of the 11eme arrondissement of Paris. The 11eme arrondissement is historically the heart of the French revolutionary working class, today a funky, arty district, where the streets are lined with delightful bars, restaurants and cafes. In addition to the cafe and restaurant scene, our neighborhood is served by the local open air farmers market four days per week, as well as a multitude of boulangeries, boucheries, traiteurs and wine caves.

The peaceful, bright and charming apartment is on the third (French) floor of an 1800’s building, and features lovely details typical of the old world French architecture, such as parquet floors and moulure ceilings.

The apartment is comfortably furnished, the community in the building is very friendly, and the neighborhood is considered one of the best places to live in the "real" Paris of Parisians.

The master bedroom sleeps two, and the second bedroom also sleeps two. We keep a little fold out mattress in the apartment for an eventual fifth person.

The apartment is an easy walk to:
Bastille, Place des Vosges, the Marais, and Canal Saint Martin (10 minutes)
Cimetière Père La Chaise, Ile St. Louis, Notre Dame, the Louvre (20-25 minutes)
Luxembourg Gardens, Jardin des Plantes, Sacre Cœur (30 minutes)

For those who prefer to use public transport, the apartment is conveniently situated within five minutes of many metro and bus lines. The closest metro stops - Oberkampf (lines 5 and 9) and Filles du Calvaire (line 8) - are practically at the doorway of the apartment.

The apartment is already set up with phone (with free international calls to over 100 countries, including the United States and Australia) internet and television.

We ask you to pay a monthly advance of 100 Euros to cover the bills for phone/internet/television, plus electricity and gas. At the end of your stay (or midway, depending on the length of your stay) we will calculate the actual bills and reimburse (or collect) the difference.

French law requires renters to buy rental insurance, which is very inexpensive (approximately 150 euros per year).

We are able to provide references from other Sabbatical Homes renters. We have developed warm relationships with all of the people who had stayed in our apartment over the years and have really valued these exchanges.

If you have questions please do feel free to email me.
