Overview

11th Arrondissement Bastille Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

Pamper yourself in this spacious (771 sq ft /67 sq m), well-appointed, one bedroom apartment!

It is located in a beautifully-preserved 19th century building in the historic Bastille neighborhood, close to the Marais, the Seine and the Canal St. Martin, in the up-and-coming 11th arrondissement.

THE APARTMENT

Our apartment is located on the second floor (third floor American). The kitchen is to the left at the end of the short hallway. It is fully equipped with carefully chosen appliances and cooking utensils, and laid out with generous counter space. Just off the kitchen, the spacious, marble-walled bathroom reveals a level of luxury truly unique in a Paris apartment. There is a large shower as well a beautifully-large bathtub, just the thing for soaking those tired limbs after a vigorous day of sight-seeing. A mirrored vanity with ample counter and storage space is spacious enough for more than one person to get ready in the morning. Also, you will also find tucked away here a top-of-the-line, full-sized Miele washer and dryer.

Next to the kitchen, the large dining room is just the place to enjoy what you brought home from the Richard Lenoir market, with elegant seating for four under an antique crystal chandelier. Original 19th century moldings are throughout the apartment, but note them particularly here above the chandelier. This room also features inlaid oak flooring, set in a herringbone pattern (point d' Hongrie in French).

Enjoy cozy seating in the salon or living room, which includes a red-wine colored velvet sofa facing its own marble fireplace and a comfy black leather club chair--above you will be another crystal chandelier. The comfortable sofa will fold out to provide a large bed with adequate space for two adults. You also have the ability to close off the living room and dining room if are using the sofabed, thus providing privacy and quiet for all guests.

Relax and watch mostly French TV (with some English channels) on a LCD television. Bring your laptop and enjoy free wifi. If you need to use the telephone, calls are free to the US, UK, continental Europe and Asia. This salon also features a newly added set of closets and desk, where a printer has been set-up for printing your boarding passes or Parisian itineraries.

The bedroom at the end of the hallway to the right features a marble fireplace as well as antique 19th century end tables that flank a custom, hand-made Treca mattress. The thick-paned, double-windows keep out street noise and the outside shutters can be closed if you need a totally dark and silent room for sleeping.

Finally, even what is usually the most ignored room in any Paris apartment has been given the luxury treatment: the W.C. is in marble, floor to ceiling.

LOCATION AND NEIGHBORHOOD

Our apartment is located in the historic Bastille neighborhood, just enough off the beaten tourist track to provide a calm respite, but still close enough to all those things that make this city indelibly Paris. Literally a block away is the incredible Richard Lenoir food market that no less an authority than David Lebovitz has pronounced one of the best in the city (don’t miss the rotisserie chickens and the incredible fresh fish stations). On the same esplanade where the market comes alive on Thursdays and Sundays can be found your local metro stop--the Breguet-Sabin station, a five-minute walk away.

If you’ve slept in on market day and/or just need a few comestibles to tide you over, there is a new Carrefour City grocery store, conveniently situated literally around the corner and there are two other larger grocery stories a few blocks away.

And if you don’t want to shop for groceries and would prefer a croissant, chausson de pomme or pain au chocolat to go with your morning coffee? Two blocks away is the Boulangerie Sedaine which our sweet tooth can personally vouch for, and in Boulangerie Mardon is even closer. Last year, an organic grocery story and restaurant opened up just down from our street.

But food and drink are certainly not the only attraction. Two blocks up is the famous Rue de la Roquette, which is a lively stroll past shops of every kind in the daytime and which features a vibrant, club/restaurant scene at night. Catch an opera or ballet at the the Bastille opera house, just ten minutes down Richard Lenoir boulevard. And for more leisurely strolls, go west to the Place des Vosges and Marais, or north to the Canal St. Martin. Or head south to the Seine and the Ile Saint Louis. All these Paris landmarks are reachable within an easy ten to twenty minutes, with the Pere Lachaise cemetery and the famous Aligre market just a bit further away on foot. Of course, with the Breguet-Sabin metro station two blocks away and the Bastille metro station ten minutes away, you have a direct connection to the rest of Paris.

About The Owner

Some years ago, when our girls were younger, we spent a memorable year in France... in Aix-en-Provence. The girls became fluent in French. We made life-long friends. It was hard to leave.

Finding this apartment in Paris was a way not to have to leave France for good.

Americans first time in Paris

  • 5 of 5
A beautifully located apartment in a typical Parisian neighborhood. It makes you feel like you are a part of Paris and not just a tourist. Kids playing at the local primary school down the street to the many neighborhood stores , shops and restaurants. The apartment has all the amenities needed to make you feel at home. Public transportation is an easy stroll down the street. We would definitely choose your apartment on another stay in Paris. Thank you for the memories you helped us create. Russ and Dan

Loved It

  • 5 of 5
This apartment gives you the feeling of space. It's got a bedroom, tiny bathroom with only a toilet and small sink, spacious modern shower, tub and sink room (with the washing machine in it), good size dining room, galley kitchen with good refrigerator, and a den area. Winding staircase leads you up to the apartment. Bruno was there right on time to meet us and Cathy was very responsive before, during, and after the rental. There is a supermarket steps away, a bike share station also a block away, plus a terrific food market on Ricard Lenoir 2x a week a few blocks away. Easy access to Le Marais, which is filled with museums, shops and restaurants as well as public transportation. We wanted to explore a different part of Paris and having this apartment made it very comfortable for us. Only downside is there is no air conditioning, so nights can be hot.

lovely apt, amazing Paris

  • 5 of 5
Alan & Cathy's apartment is a lovely and charming gateway to an amazing and vibrant city. As the listing describes, the bathroom and kitchen are modern and well-equipped, the wood floors are beautiful, and (by the way) the abstract paintings and personal photos lend a nice contrast to the more traditional elements. The apt's location is outstanding—near great boulangeries, wine stores, restaurants, the outdoor farmers' market, and specialty stores like the organic food store. Plus, it is only a few steps from the fascinating and fashionable Marais district, including the beautiful and historic Place des Vosges. Alan and Cathy themselves are gracious hosts, providing a wealth of information and tips. We had a great and memorable trip. Thanks!

Second times a charmer...

  • 5 of 5
For my second trip to Paris, I couldn't think of anywhere I wanted to stay more that at this apartment. Just like my first visit, the apartment was a welcoming and inviting place to call home during my stay. Having a Metro stop just five minutes away is definitely convenient in the morning, but an even more appreciated after a long lay of sight seeing. With two markets near by as well as many restaurants, mealtime is not a problem. There are two newer restaurants that have opened since my visit last year and they seem quite popular and two doors down they were getting ready to open a new juice bar. As for the apartment, the full kitchen is great, the washer and dryer are something I could not do with out during an extended stay, and the sofa bed in the front room is the most comfortable bed of its type that I have ever slept in. If you want a place to call home during your stay in Paris, look no further.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in this apartment for 16 nights. Husband and two teenage children. It was just perfect for our needs. It was lovely having the two separate living areas - lounge and dining room, did not feel crowded at all. We ate in most evenings as it was so much fun going to the market at Richard Lenoir buying fresh produce, and on the days that market was not open going a little further afield to Marche d'Aligre. The kitchen was equipped so well. There was everything you could possibly need, baking dishes bowls, cooking equipment, made cooking very easy. The location was perfect within easy walking distance of many metro lines. The bathroom was fantastic, very roomy and was great having washing machine and dryer. Was very handy having the supermarket across the road which is open very long hours. Close a to a number of boulangeries and patisseries also, so could get fresh crosissants for breakfast very easily in morning. Was wonderful having access to the internet and being able to use the phone to ring (landlines) home on christmas day.
Bruno met us at the apartment and he was so friendly and helpful showing us how to use everything. Cathy and Alan were so responsive to any questions we had. So all in all everything was perfect and I would highly recommend

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
Even with the high ratings, the apartment exceeded my expectations. I spent a week in the apartment with my mother. By Parisian standards, it is large and spacious (I have stayed in nice, but tiny places previously). The pullout bed was the most comfortable pullout I've ever experienced and it was in the family room with a door that can be closed to the hallway. This is really nice for parties using both sleeping areas, because people can use the bathroom, go to the kitchen, etc. without disturbing the person in the other area. The apartment location is fantastic--a couple streets away from the vibrant Bastille area, but not too close for nighttime noise. Bruno, the manager, was helpful, and the apartment was clean. We also found the owners' tips on local restaurants and sites to be very helpful. I highly recommend the place.
