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.

Wonderful Apartment! Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week in late March 2015. The apartment is wonderful, and the location is fabulous! The apartment is situated in a residential neighborhood near the Bastille with lots of nearby restaurants and three grocery stores, including a Biocoop with lots of vegetarian options. Also, the apartment is only a few blocks away from a convenient Metro line. You can get anywhere is the city easily from here. The apartment owners Cathy and Alan were in communication beforehand, with information and recommendations about transportation, restaurants, etc. They also emailed us during our stay to make sure that we were comfortable. Notably, the apartment has reliable internet access, which is a major requirement when we travel. This was actually the first European apartment that we have rented in years in which the internet was functioning properly. The apartment was extremely comfortable, so much so that we are already thinking about planning our next visit to Paris, now that we have found accommodations that we like. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you!

Our new home in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

If only this was our home! But I know where now we will stay on every visit. The apartment itself is completely comfortable and tasteful, and large, by Parisian standards. We got to explore the 11e, new to us, and wonderful. So many great restaurants we hardly had to leave the neighbourhood to eat. Every effort was made to keep us well informed of what to expect before our arrival, and one minor problem was fixed PRONTO. I only hesitate to recommend because I want the apartment to be available the next time I book!

Cosy and luxurious apartment in the centre of Paris

  • 5 of 5

Really nice apartment in the centre of Paris. Really central, close to public transports, you can reach everywhere in the city. Even if you go for a walk, the city centre is very close. The apartment is super cosy and comfortable and the neighborhood is very calm and nice. The market on sundays is a must see (go/eat!) - so we learned, afterwards, after having strolled by and bought many delicious goodies. Definitely a great place where to stay in Paris.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

When I first looked at the pictures I wondered if me, my mother and adult sister would be comfortable, as there is only one bedroom. I decided to risk and was not disappointed: although it looks like the 2nd sleeping area is in the living room, this is a completely separate division, with full privacy. The couch opens easily and becomes a good sized, comfortable bed.

The apartment was decorated with taste, including nice paintings and other details one includes in its own house. I loved to find a whole shelf with guide books, maps, french cooking books and travel romances featuring Paris and France, as it was interesting to read at night.

Kitchen is fully equipped and the dining room is separate from the living room. On Sundays you can easily go downstairs to the great Bastille market and have lunch in the apartment.

As for transportation, there are plenty of buses passing by and subway is close. There's a supermarket just downstairs and the area is still quiet, I don't know what else one can ask for.

Inviting home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Extremely comfortable, inviting apartment in a quiet neighborhood with nearby access to major metro lines, a short walk to the beautiful Marais area and to the bustling Bastille. Many interesting shops and restaurants in a great area not yet touristic or commercial. Terrific sense of space with large bedroom, sizable living room, separate dining room and modernized, sleek bathroom. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped and new, perfect for the great food at a large bio store on the corner and the huge (and very fun) Richard Lenoir outdoor market just two blocks away. The owners could not have been more helpful and responsive. Very highly recommended.

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
