LE CROISEMENT – TRANQUILITY IN THE HEART OF THE NEW LEFT BANK!

11th Arrondissement Bastille Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

“Un croisement” is a crossroad or junction, which perfectly describes this big, bright apartment ideally situated between the historic Marais, the trendy Canal St Martin/Oberkampf neighborhoods and the lively Bastille area. Located on the wide, tree-lined boulevard Richard Lenoir, the area that Gourmet magazine recently described as “The New Left Bank” is right at your doorstep. After a wonderfully exhausting day of exploring Paris’ most vibrant arrondissements, you’ll return to your pied à terre in a beautiful, well-maintained 20th century Art Deco building with concierge. The entry has digi-code as well as double key-code entry and interphone. Walk through the lobby to the private interior courtyard and take the classic, iron-caged elevator to the 3rd floor (4th floor American).

At check-in, you’ll be greeted by our English-speaking apartment manager. He’ll give you the keys, show you around the apartment, explain the operation of the appliances and be available to help if anything comes up during your stay.

As you enter, you’ll notice the calm, quiet ambiance of this roomy 600+ sq. foot apartment with its high ceilings and craftsman-style crown moldings. It was recently renovated with fresh paint, refinished original hardwood floors and all new appliances and furnishings.

Tastefully decorated in soft, soothing tones, everything was selected to ensure a relaxing, comfortable séjour à Paris. Large double-paned windows in each room provide lots of light and airflow. The apartment overlooks the interior courtyard on one side and a small side street on the other, so you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet that’s almost impossible to find in a city center.

The living room’s floor-to-ceiling windows open to a small balcony. You can curl up on the plush, contemporary-style sofa (with a comfy fold-out double bed) and catch up on world events on the flat-screen TV/DVD with over 130 channels including CNN, CNBC, Sky News and BBC.

Or uncork a nice Bordeaux and enjoy the stereo/CD (with iPod connections) while you flip through the apartment’s large, eclectic collection of guidebooks and plan your next day’s excursions.

Keep in touch with family and friends with high-speed internet service (WI-FI or cable) or just pick up the phone… long distance calls to the US, Canada and over 70 countries are free and unlimited.

The separate walk-in kitchen is the perfect place to practice your French culinary skills (there’s even a Julia Child’s cookbook for those who need a little help). With the freshest ingredients from the neighborhood’s many markets, boucheries, boulangeries and fromageries and this fully equipped kitchen, whipping up your own French feast will be a joy.

The full-sized fridge with separate freezer, full-sized gas stove with 4 gas burners, convection-toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker and blender make this a cook’s kitchen. Everything you need including pots, pans, utensils and dishware are in the built in wooden cabinets.

Spread your feast on the antique wooden dining table with 4 authentic café-style chairs, and dine to the soft sounds of Edith Piaf on the stereo.

Being Parisian for Two Weeks

In Paris a boulevard is not 6 or 8 lanes of traffic, it is one or two driving lanes, one or two parking lanes, and lots of green space. Directly across from our apartment was a park that ran the length of the block filled with benches, Parisans playing bocce ball and young people engaged in lighthearted conversation. Crossing the green space were bistros, small neighborhood grocery stores, boulangeries, patisseries and people walking everywhere. The atmosphere was hurried but not rushed so that carrying our baguettes, fresh eggs, and the occasional bottle of wine into our apartment building was less an escape from the outside than a return to what we came to regard as home. The apartment, while described by the owner as 600 square feet, felt bigger. The well appointed kitchen provided all the tools and equipment to prepare meals fresh from the twice weekly neighborhood open air market. Vertical french windows in the bedroom and living room along with vertically opening windows in the kitchen and bathroom allowed for cool airflows. The rooms were large with high ceilings, crown molding, and hardwood floors. The washing machine in the bathroom allowed us to keep ourselves in fresh laundry throughout our stay. The chandelier on a dimmer switch in the bedroom emitted a wonderfully romantic aura. The audio systems in the living room and bedroom were great; although the apartment offers a television with some english speaking channels, we never found it necessary to turn it on. The owner's CD music collection provided the proper Parisian mood along with the funky local Paris radio station. The owner graciously coached us through our first trip to Paris with many suggestions and recommendations for entertainment, dining, and cultural enrichment (including wine tastings). The Paris based property managers arrived on schedule and were most helpful in getting us oriented in our Paris nest. We explored Paris easily through the three metro stations, all a short walk from the front door. The building offers two controlled accesses to the apartment making us feel safe and secure. The stained glass at every floor of the circular, carpeted stairwell that surrounds the decorative metal lift gave the building a charming Art Nouveau ambiance. We loved our two weeks in Paris and were so comfortable at La Croisement.

A Perfect Stay!

My husband and I spent a week in Joan's lovely and comfortable apartment. Joan is remarkable! She responded quickly to all my emails and patiently answered all of my questions. In addition, she furnished us with a wealth of information on the neighborhood, restaurants nearby, etc., so that when we arrived we felt like locals! The apartment was large by European standards and the bed was so very comfortable. Tremendous counter space in the bathroom, and it was so nice to have a washing machine. Joan's restaurant recommendations were spot on. We loved Chez Janou and Au Passage and also enjoyed having a few pints at the Rush Bar and meeting the patrons. The market on Sunday morning just a few blocks down Richard Lenoir is incredible! We bought quite a few groceries at the market, including fresh fish, and prepared a couple of dinners at the apartment. (Be sure and bring bags with you for your purchases.) Several metro stops are close by. Paris is such a beautiful city...easy to get around by metro...we had an awesome time. If we ever return, we will definitely stay at Joan's. If you are lucky enough to rent her apartment, you will not be disappointed!

I have stayed in many apartments in Paris over the past 20 years. This is most definitely the best appointed of any of them. Simple and well designed rooms, furniture . Lots of light and space. Super clean. Great Art Deco building. Quiet. Well set up kitchen. Lots of thought went into the planning for comfort and easy adjustment to living in Paris.

The metro is less than a block away. Two supermarkets nearby. 2 cafes just steps away. The manager, Bruno, easy to contact and right on time to let you in and super nice. The owner, Joan, so helpful. The experience was excellent and I would highly recommend this apartment.

A wonderful Paris apartment

My husband and I stayed at this apartment for a ten-day vacation. The apartment is just as described in the listing details and photos, and was very comfortable, clean and well-maintained. The location is terrific, and the apartment was a great base for our vacation. Joan's suggestions of nearby restaurants and stores were very helpful, and she responded promptly to my emailed questions. The apartment is close to the metro, and we bought seven-day metro passes and six-day museum passes and rode the metro all over Paris. We would definitely rent the apartment again if we return to Paris.

Just Perfection

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in the apartment...and honestly could not have been more pleased. The location was lovely....wide beautiful boulevard outside the door, near multiple metro stations, great restaurants very close by, safe feeling even late at night. Everything about the apartment was clean and well maintained. Joan was an absolute delight, full of information and helpful in every way.. Bruno was on the spot when needed, friendly and helpful also. Unusual in Paris...the bathroom was quite large and although, we did not cook a single meal the kitchen was more than adequate and there was even a full sized refrigerator. Loved the location...loved the apartment...and loved that everything about leasing thru Joan and VRBO was smooth as silk. Would not hesitate to highly recommend this property to a friend or relative.
