THE CONCEPT

 

Le LOFT is a 40 sq. m. apartment located in a former fireplace shop of the flea market neighborhood. 

The design decoration is out of the ordinary: you can sleep in a Citroen 2CV car converted into a bed or sleep in a circular bed, resin has been used for the floor and steel for the ceiling etc.

Le LOFT is a great accommodation to stay for a family or friends (up to 5 people), in an atypical and authentic area a few minutes away from the metro station and Montmartre. All shops are in the immediate vicinity (bakery, supermarket etc.).

RTL2 an important German TV chain contacted me to help them discover Montmartre in the form of a 50- minute documentary on Paris. So like this I met their team "by chance" in a local “creperie” and we strolled around the vines & went to the cabaret named "Le Lapin Agile", had a caricature done in Place du Tertre, drank Bordeaux from champagne glasses (!!) in front of the Sacre-Coeur and then finished up with a really good fondue. Ahhhhhhh!! Paris...

The same again the next day: breakfast on the terrace of the "Renaissance" then we prepared a picnic with the shopkeepers in the Rue du Poteau. Bread, ham fruit & vegetables and... another bottle of wine!
