- LE QUARTIER:
You are here in some of Paris's hottest and hippest destinations. Oberkampf is a trend-spotting central "Bobo" area with music clubs, cafés, boutiques, great restaurants, a truly amazing boulangerie, and an open-air market (on tuesdays and fridays morning).
Within walking distance you'll be able to check out the famous and fashionable Marais; the Bastille, home turf of the french revolution, now welcoming an Opéra and the biggest farmer's market (thursday and sunday); the Canal Saint-Martin where you can enjoy trendy art galleries during the day and a drink on the banks at night, the Belleville Chinatown area, and the city's largest cemetery Père Lachaise with its famous tenants such as Jim Morrison or Oscar Wilde.
The 3 subways stations (ilne 3, 5 and 9) around the apartment make an ideal base to explore the city. They will take you directly to Opera, the Champs Elysées, the Galerie Lafayette, Place d'Itale, train stations (Gare du Nord/de l'Est/Austerlitz) for example, and many other great places of town.
Our 52m2 (560 sq feet) apartment is bright and spacious, located in a quiet side street right off of Oberkampf area. It's fully equipped with separate kitchen, bathroom, living room and a bedroom looking down on a courtyard's garden.
The apartement can fit a couple in the private room, as well as another couple on the sofa/bed (note: A door space is separating the bedroom and living-room, but the door is missing) We have an additional sofa/bed that can fit a kid (it's short in length) that is not counted in the description.
