There's an expression; there's no room to swing a cat.

It means a space is small.

Well in this apartment, there is room to swing a giraffe. The place is huge!

And what a place it is! Combining style effortlessly with a quirky sense of humour, the apartment is colourful, practical, roomy, comfortable, elegant and chic all at once.

We love it. And just check out that kitchen – it will be a joy to cook in, and you can entertain guests at the same time!

Unfortunately, you'll have to leave the apartment on occasion, but when you do, you'll find yourself mere moments from a train station that can bring you anywhere across the city with ease. You can even take the Eurostar all over France, or to the UK.

And in the local area you can find cafes and restaurants, a Proxy grocery store just around the corner. The Porte de Hal area is also just a few minutes walk away.
