The Canal St. Martin deserves much more attention than it sometimes gets. It’s much less crowded than its big brother–the river Seine–and, in our opinion, has more authentic cafes, smoke shops and eateries than some of the tourist-driven establishments Seine-side. The neighborhoods around the Canal, especially the 10th arrondissement, are a tree-lined conglomeration of some of Paris’ best bakeries, artisan shops and residencies.
The neighborhood caters to local customers–not tourists–and the extra attention shows. New York Habitat has a long-standing relationship with the quarter and has several accommodations in the 10th arrondissement, near the iconic Canal St. Martin and its neighborhoods.
About one city block from the serene canal and its romantic foot bridges is this studio in Canal St. Martin (PA-3600). This studio is all about location, location, location. Besides being steps from the canal and the metro station Goncourt, the apartment is a short walk from all that the Right-Bank of Paris has to offer; the Parc Buttes Chaumont, the Pere Lachaise cemetary, and, a tad further, the river Seine.
Tucked onto the quiet and tiny rue Alibert, this small studio packs a lot of punch. One of its greatest assets is its ground floor placement; the main entrance gate opens up to a manicured courtyard. Some highlights of the studio include parquet floors, two windows overlooking the courtyard and an on-site washing machine.
