General description

  • Main home
Charming 1-bedroom ground floor apartment creatively converted from old shop, in quiet and bright Vincennes just outside of Paris. Kitchen/living room all-in-one, small patio in the back, reached from bathroom (with bathtub). Theme of warm red and green (plants everywhere). Public Velib bike station and bus connection to Paris just around the corner.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Many plants
  • A cat
The house-sitter would care and be company for my 13-years old cat who mostly minds her own business, but wants a cozy cuddle every now and then. Very alert, attentive and curious to be included in the every-day life and not a fan of being alone, especially at night. Needs feeding twice a day and being let out/in throughout the day (this is flexible and not very burdensome).
My many plants also need some attention and watering, by a house-sitter.

This is a quiet street, lightened up by a farmer's market down the road twice per week. Some 5 minutes away can be found smaller supermarkets and general shops (including organic shop) for the day-to-day life. A 20 min walk takes you to the centre of Vincennes (with Vincennes Castle) or, in another direction, to the more buzzy ambience of the city of Montreuil with many small shops, awesome cinema, swimming pool etc. Metro to Paris goes from either Montreuil or Vincennes and a smooth way to get there is by bus or by the public bikes, found just around the corner. Here in Vincennes, houses are built low and we enjoy the sun and more clear sky (than in Paris). On hot days, the apartment provides for cooling and shade, while the plants are flourishing in the sunny windows.

Comfort and Luxury

I work remotely from home, and have a compete work place set-up available.
The bath tub is not the biggest but it is a bath tub, providing for warm cozy baths.
A new luxurious mattress in the bedroom bed makes sleeping effortless!
The living room sofa converts into a comfortable sofa-bed.
