My love and slight obsession for One Fine Stay is no big secret! I LOVE gauking at all these beautiful places and getting inspiration from them. This one in France in a neighborhood of Paris, in the 17th arrondissement of the city.A great place to stay if you are looking for somewhere away from the main tourists attractions and prices that usually go with! Batignolles has recently become a trendy district for young artists looking for inexpensive working spaces.To me it is the real Paris. Lots of indepedant boutiques, trendy cafes (Visit Le Bal Cafe for some of the best coffee in Paris, it is located in a cool cultural center that has regular photo exhibits). And last but not least, there is a big organic market well worth the visit especially if you are self catering (and a foodie like me!). The house is simply but beautifully furnitured with white walls, wood floors, mismatched furniture, a totally awesome internal window giving the whole place a relaxed scandi/boho vibe.

Available through One Fine Stay.
