I am American from Chicago and have lived and worked in Paris for the past 14 years. I did my undergraduate studies at Washington University in St. Louis where I majored in French and International Studies. I live in the same building as the rental apartment with my husband Xavier and our twin boys Luca and Sebastien (born in 2010) which allows me to be very available for any questions or problems you might have during your stay. We love the neighborhood and really enjoy meeting all the different people that have come to Paris and rented our apartment.

Construction of the building where the apartment is located was completed in 2008 so the apartment benefits from many of the advantages you can find in a new building (large elevator, modern finishes, good double windows keeping the noise and cold out, large shower, lots of hot water, etc) which is not always the case in the older apartments in central Paris. The apartment is very clean and well maintained. The area is very lively but given the apartment is on a side street it remains quite quiet and peaceful. You have all the main services necessary within a few minutes walking (grocery stores, tailor, cleaner, pharmacy, several bakeries, wine store, restaurants, cafes, bars, metro lines 1, 5, 8, and 9 and several bus lines). There is a fabulous open air market nearby on Thursdays and Sundays.
The apartment is very centrally located and very well served by public transportaion allowing you to reach all the main Paris attractions either by metro/bus or by foot. The area does not have the touristy feel you sometimes find in some of the other popular Paris neighborhoods. Many renters have commented that they felt their stayin the neighborhood and apartment allowed them to really experience what it's like to live in Paris.
The apartment is located on rue des Taillandiers, a quiet side street located between rue de la Roquette and rue de Charonne, 5 minutes walking Place de la Bastille. The Bastille area is known for its trendy bars, restaurants and stores. The Opera National de Paris - Bastille, is a modern opera house inaugurated for the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. Every Thursday and Sunday morning starting from the place de la Bastille and extending up blvd Richard Lenoir there is a typical Parisian outdoor food market that shouldn’t be missed. The apartment is an easy 10 minute walk from the well known Place des Vosges and the historic Marais quarter (4th Arrondissement). The apartment is well connected by metro to most of the main tourist sites and train stations given its proximity to the Bastille and Voltaire Metro stations. Five minutes walking from subway lines: 1, 5, 8 and 9.
