Cosy bedroom in a spacious industrial loft with a garden, two beds, and easy access from public transport.
Welcome to our place. We completely refurbished it as it was a warehouse a few years ago, so everything but the structure is new. It is at the end of a small gated alley, with very friendly neighbours.
As opposed to our other add, this is just for one of the two bedrooms, when we are living here or a friend is. In such a case you can have privacy in your own bedroom (with good soundproofing). If more than two are here, you can also use the large convertible sofa in the main room (but will have to cohabit with us in such a case).
The loft is composed of three floors. The ground floor has a single room with a very high ceiling, comprising the entrance, a music corner (baby grand piano, keyboards, drum kit, guitars, xylophone), a large convertible sofa, a fully equipped kitchen, and an office corner. There is also a small bathroom on this floor. There is also a single open room on the mezzanine, with windows opening onto our garden (the ceiling is at about 2.1m with a metal beam in the center, so if you are very tall be careful). It has a decent book collection, in French and English (including a lot of sci-fi and French literature), a comfy reading corner with beanbags, a desk and a long dining table if you want to have guests (we managed to fit 11 people once, but that's the maximum). On the lower level, the first door leads to a fancy bathroom with an Italian shower, a very large bathtub (fits two), and the usual appliances.
The bedroom we are renting has a small desk (with a computer if you need to use one), lots of storage space and a single bed, with another one underneath it. The second bed can be used separately or raised to make a double bed. It also has a door-window leading to our private garden. The garden offers some nice talking and resting space on a decked multi-level floor, and we grow some vegetables and fruits there. It generally has both sunny and shaded areas from 10am to 6pm.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
You will generally interact with me (Kolia), as we rent while Leila is traveling. I am quite present and should be free to show you around, give help or play music with you if you want. I am a night owl however, so don't expect my presence before midday.
We have a pet snake called Wisp living with us. She is not roaming free and lives in a vivarium. She's also small, completely harmless (corn snake), and very cute.
Leila et Kolia. Nous sommes tous deux scientifiques (planétologue / mathématicien) et voyageons pas mal, le plus souvent chacun de notre côté, pour des conférences ou des postes temporaires.
Nous accueillons aussi parfois à Paris.
Leila est plutôt réservée et introvertie, contrairement à Kolia. Nous aimons la musique (et en faisons), et les animaux en tous genres (notre serpent Wisp sur la photo).
