Vincennes Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A Two Room Flat Next To The Metro And RER 15 Minutes Away From Paris Center

I am renting a 646 sq. ft. flat (60 m2) in the town centre of Vincennes.

The Château de Vincennes metro station ( Line N°1) or the Vincennes RER (fast train - A line) station are three minutes away and will take you to the center of Paris (Châtelet station) in 10 minutes (RER) or 20 minutes (Metro). The Metro line N°1 is the automatic central line running through several main stations : Nation (8'), Gare de Lyon (12'), Bastille (14'), Hôtel de Ville (18'), Châtelet (20'), Musée du Louvre (24') Concorde (28'), Etoile (36'). The RER station is very convenient to go to the airports, to the Gare de Lyon or the Gare du Nord (Eurostar) which is less than 30 minutes away. This RER line also takes you to Disneyland.

A Velib’ station (3 min. away) will allow you to visit Paris on a bike.

This very quiet flat is on the first floor of a nineteenth century building. The windows open out onto a street (lounge facing south) and gardens (bedroom and kitchen facing north). In spring, you’ll probably be woken up in the morning by the many birds singing in the trees.

The flat is very close (3min.) to many good quality shops in Vincennes' town centre, to a typical outdoor French market (Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays), to the Vincennes woods with its Floral gardens and lakes where you can rent a rowboat and the beautiful medieval Castle of Vincennes.

The flat has one bedroom with a large (1,60 X 2 m / 63 X 78 inches) four poster bed with a high quality mattress; one large lounge with an extra bed for one person ; one eat-in kitchen ; one bathroom with a large bath and shower and a separated toilet with a wash basin.

The flat decoration has been carefully chosen, associating modern furniture (Le Corbusier and Marcel Breuer armchairs, designed lightings fixtures…) and carefully restored antique furniture. The entrance hall, the bedroom and the lounge have kept their old and warm oak floor.

The kitchen has a gas stove, a microwave, an electric toaster, different types of coffee pots and machines (Bialetti, Bodum, electric and expresso), an electric kettle, fresh pasta machine etc.

The washing machine is in the bathroom.

In the lounge, you will find a large screen TV set (42” Sony Bravia) and a good quality hifi with Cds and DVDs.

A broadband internet connexion is provided.

+ Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, iron and iron board.

Linen and bed linen are provided. As well as the usual pillows, one neck-pillow is available.

You will not have to go shopping straight away when you arrive after your journey : basic food is stored in the cupboards (tea, coffee, sugar, oil, pasta, rice, salt and pepper etc)

There is a locked room on the ground floor where you can leave your bicycles.

I live in the same building so I can advise you or help you if you wish during your stay. I am half English and half French so we won't have any difficulty if you only speak English !

French Bliss

  • 5 of 5
Welcomed by the owner with a cup ot tea,a friendly and helpfull manner , calmed me after travelling since 4.30am.Everything in this enchanting apartment was "home away from home" from washing machine to cooking utensils to fantastic bath which I soaked in every night.Comfortable King size bed with tall french windows which opened up ànd allowed the night stillness to flow through and the mornings activities welcoming without being too noisy.
I loved the fact that once I left the apartment it was only a short walk to caffes,patisseries,supermarket,fashion boutiques,the metro and railway station.
15mins by metro and you are in the heartbeat of Paris,15 mins you are back in the sanctuary of Vincenne-
so easy if you have walked a thousand steps in the morning to go back to the apartment,relax and venture back into Paris early evening as I so often did.
I didnt watchTV or a video but there was certainly a huge selection as well as CDs.
I fell in love with the kitchen ,the view from the table was gorgeous, the soap arm in the laundrey intrigued me and I have now orderd one for my home in Australia.
I so recommend this charming apartment, it was my home for the week and I really wished I could have packed it all up and bought it back to Australia with me.
The owner, Anthony offered to walk me to the railway station and help me buy my ticket to CDG airport which I thought was so caring and he insisted on carrying my luggage down the flight of stairs.
The apartment is a reflection of the owner, and once you have experienced its.comfort and charms,you will be drawn back to experience it all over again.!!!

Nice to come back to a sweet home in Paris.

  • 5 of 5
Wanting to come back to exactly this apartment that we found really nice at our last stay in Paris, we booked the place allready this summer when we planned our fall vacations. We found it just the way we left if and felt very much at home. (Great choice of DVDs if one should want to a little restful evening).The only difference was the pavement on the road and the newly planted trees, even better ! The evironment is just nice, the appartment is perfect, the owner helpfull - and so close to the center of Paris. We really recommend this adress.

Perfect place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This was my first stay and I was delighted with everything about the flat which felt like home-from-home in no time. It is quiet, spacious, everything was clean (and worked) and it is ideally located in the centre of Vincennes with Metro Line 1 and RER stations just a few minutes walk away giving access to anywhere one might wish to visit.

The owner was very welcoming and accommodating and provided all the information I needed. Suffice to say that I shall return and would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and relatives.

Thank you Anthony.

Perfect Apartment for a stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5
This quiet and spacious apartment was perfect for my month's stay in Paris. Delightful well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and, with it's wooden floors and interesting furniture and paintings, the flat had lots of character. My host was charming and helpful, finding me a desk to work on when needed, and with his perfect english, gave me great suggestions on places to eat and visit. His cat Sassetta is very sweet too! Vincennes has great shops and market but isn't touristy and it's an easy hop into the city with both RER and metro nearby. I couldn't fault my stay and will certainly book this apartment again.

Super Location and Host

  • 5 of 5
Located in a quiet part of Vincennes, this apartment has all the amenities needed for an enjoyable stay: separate bedroom with comfortable Queen Size bed; living room with large flat screen TV, DVD/CD Player, and a broad selection of music CDs; bath tub/shower room; and cozy kitchen with stove and refrigerator.

Across the street is a local wine shop. Within five minutes, one can walk to ATM cash machines, cafes, pastry shops, food stores, restaurants, other retail stores, a wonderful three block street market (Tuesday, Friday, Sunday), and the historic Chateau of Vincennes with its adjacent extensive, colorful, and free gardens, one of four formal gardens in Greater Paris.

Both of Paris’s subway systems have stops in Vincennes within a five minute walk, providing easy access to Central Paris, all intercity rail stations, and two international airports. Tip: Buy groups of tickets good on the subway systems (Central Paris and Vincennes) and save the hassle of buying tickets for each ride.

The owner spoke English and was extremely helpful in answering our many questions about Vincennes and Paris. We also found his detailed apartment guide, in English and French, with information about the apartment and recommendations about the area, very useful,

My wife and I highly recommend this apartment.
