Overview

11th Arrondissement Bastille Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Discount week of April 2nd:Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The March 2004 full renovation was updated in December 2013. This 'chambre d'hotel' apartment on the Rue des Tournelles is just a three minute walk from the Place des Vosges, one of the most beautiful 17th century squares in all of Europe. We refer to this 230 square feet ground floor studio apartment as 'le petit bijou' or the 'little jewel'.

The apartment was featured on the Parisian TV magazine show 'Paris Premiere' in April 2004. The local TV Company engaged a well-known Parisian designer and produced the making of a luxury 'pied a terre'. From the demolition of the old, to the haute design of the new, it is an encapsulated history of our Parisian dreams realized.

The renovation is a work of art and features a restored limestone wall, stone tile floors, a very accommodating bathroom, pastel striped painted walls, and the very hip 'kitchoo' cuisine with stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher.

All the furnishings have been selected to accommodate your most comfortable visit to Paris. Everything here is comparable to a luxury hotel except at one/quarter of the cost. The 4 star Pavillon de la Reine Hotel three blocks away charges 500 euros/night for a 150 square foot room and it doesn't come with a kitchen.

The apartment, in a 19th century 'Regency' style building, sits along the quiet rue des Tournelles. In the 17th century, the Marais was home to the most aristocratic families of Paris and 400 years later, little has changed in the architectural feel of this old quarter.

The very narrow rue des Francs Bourgeoise is now filled with 'hip' boutiques, and 'trendy' restaurants and cafes share the buildings of the old Jewish Ghetto along rue des Rosiers, but some of the quieter street like rue des Tournelles look the same as they did over a hundred years ago.

It's a short walk to the Notre Dame or the Louvre, but the Marais is so intoxicating, you could easily spend a lot of your time just enjoying the Place des Vosges, Hotel Sully, Museé Picasso, Museé Carnavelet and carefree walks through the small winding streets.

Services included in the cost are phone calls anywhere in France and in the US, cable TV, English movie stations, free and unlimited wireless Internet, linens, towels. Our bilingual contact will be just a phone call away if you need any help during your stay.

In the apartment will also be our guide to the neighborhood, favorite restaurants, cafes, wine shops, bakeries, and markets.

About Joelle Dussuyer

I was born in France, Lyon and I have lived in San Francisco now for 33 years. I live with my boyfriend in the Castro area of the City. I feel very lucky to have two places in Paris, this wonderful studio and a beautiful one bedroom (VRBO 33626).It has been a pleasure hosting so many nice guests throughout the last few years. I am looking forward to having you too! :)

Joelle Dussuyer purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Joelle Dussuyer chose 11th Arrondissement Bastille

It is simply the most hip area of Paris, yet full of history, good restaurants and attractive shops. It's centrally located, walking distance to many of Paris' greatest museums and landmarks, and easily accessible by metro. Simply the best area in town.

What makes this apartment unique

Designed for American tourists by a French native who has lived in the States for 33 years. I had you in mind. The apartment is very quiet, very comfortable, clean and beautiful. The bed is extremely comfortable. I've had several renters tell me that it is the best bed they have ever slept in. Moon, my Paris contact is the best!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great time in Paris..even though it was windy, cold and wet.

Brigitte met us at the apartment and took care of all the little

details. She is absolutely a wonderful, friendly, helpful

person...you've got a great caretaker. Went through the "personal yellow guide"

and it was very helpful for day to day activities. Great idea! The apartment is

very, very cozy and comfortable. Host service...absolutely excellent :-)

Just wanted to say "thank you" to Gretchen and Jonathon for their hospitality.

Marais Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was absolutely marvelous. It is small and is perfect for a couple or an individual. While it is on the ground floor, the street is very quiet. The kitchen works well especially if you plan to eat dinners at restaurants. The bathroom is very nice. The neighborhood is very pleasant. The city is very accessible from this location, but the it is by no means overrun by tourists. We would recommend it as the perfect romantic getaway.

Wonderful location in Paris!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Paris for our anniversary and this apartment was in a superb location for exploring. The subway station was very close and made getting around Paris very convenient. We loved being able to explore Marais and eat at the fantastic restaurants nearby.
The apartment is a nice size for 2 people. We were grateful that the owner Joelle allowed us to check in early to the apartment since there was no one staying the day before. The apartment was very clean and had all the items we might need, including an extra umbrella, which came in very handy. Joelle even left us a bottle of wine, which was a wonderful surprise.
Joelle was very easy to work with for setting up the rental and she has helpful recommendations for food in the neighborhood. We were very pleased with this apartment and would recommend it to others.

April in Paris!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at Joelle's Bijou to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in April. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The Marais neighborhood near the Place de Vosges was delightful with many small streets, restaurants, bakeries, wine bars and shops within easy walking distance, and we immediately felt part of Parisian life. Joelle gave lots of practical recommendations for transport, restaurants, shopping etc. and went out of her way to help us, even ordering special flowers to be in the apartment when we arrived! Thank you, Joelle for everything. We would love to return in the near future.

A perfect holiday vacation

  • 4 of 5
We had a fantastic six in the petit bijou in the 4th arrondissement. The location was perfect for our first visit to Paris, especially for me as a first timer. The neighborhood was perfect to walk around and explore in. The metro was literally one block up as well as many cab stations. Joelle is very helpful and provided us with excellent suggestions for cafés, patisseries, and restaurants close to the apartment. The apartment is very clean and really cosy - it has all you need for a comfortable stay. Everything was just perfect, and we would definitely stay here again. Thank you Joelle for being such an excellent host!

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely four days in Joelle's delightful petit bijou in the 4th arrondissement. The location was perfect for our first visit to Paris. A great neighbourhood to stroll about and explore. The metro and buses are all close (5-8 minute walk). Joelle is very helpful and provided us with excellent directions from the airport (very easy on the RER and Metro) and good suggestions for cafés, patisseries, and restaurants close to the apartment. The apartment is very clean and really cosy - it has all you need for a comfortable stay. Even though the apartment is on the ground floor we found the area quiet at night and slept well in the very comfortable bed! Also, a very secure building. The selection of guide books and maps to Paris were an added bonus - very helpful. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Joelle!

Loved the neighborhood...the Place des Vosges was OUR park! Some street noise was a factor, but overall we loved our stay here.
