Overview

11th Arrondissement Bastille Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Sleeps up to 4 people

Welcome to 'The Secret Of The Bastille'. This sunny one bedroom apartment is located in the heart of the thriving Bastille area, but it is tucked away in a small courtyard providing you privacy and quiet. 'The Secret' is once you step inside the apartment, you wont hear any of sounds of the city.

Located on the vibrant Rue De La Roquette, immediately beside the Place de la Bastille, you have hundreds of restaurants, boutiques, cafes and markets to choose from. The street is overflowing with activity day and night, and you will never run out of new places to visit.

The wonderful open air market of the Bastille is located just steps away from your apartment on Blvd Richard Lenoir every Thursday and Sunday. Alternatively, further up Blvd Richard Lenoir is the open air market 'Popincourt' every Tuesday and Friday. Both have excellent seafood and Artisanal products from all over France. You can shop for all of the freshest french market ingredients to cook your own apartment.

The bedroom has a Queen size bed for 2 people.

The new Double size Sofa Bed in the living room can be opened to fit 2 additional people and closed to create a living space.

The flatscreen TV in the living area will let you see what's going on in the world with hundreds of channels in many languages and CNN and BBC in English. But remember, you didn't come to Paris to care about what's going on in the world. So set it to some digital classical radio instead and sip some wine and nibble some fromage, now that's better.

The kitchen is equipped with a microwave/grill, ceramic stovetop, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer combo, kettle, coffee maker and toaster.

Everything that you need to prepare a delicious meal is provided. Bring home some fresh vegetables from the Parisian street market of the Bastille and see what you can whip up. Save money by eating at home and enjoy the peace and quiet of your Parisian Hideaway.

The bathroom is equipped with a shower.

Calling friends back home or checking your email is simple from Le Secret. Your flat is set up with FREE WIFI and UNLIMITED FREE TELEPHONE CALLS to over 70 countries, including the U.S., Canada and Australia.

About Jennifer of Cobblestone Paris Rentals www.CobblestoneParis.com

Cobblestone Paris Rentals is a small, customer oriented, Vacation Rental Company.

It all began in 2004 when Ryan and Jennifer took a vacation to Paris and chose to rent a furnished apartment instead of staying in a hotel. They chose an apartment in the 4th Arrondissement on the charming Rue de Petit Musc, in the amazing Marais quarter of Central Paris. The apartment was in a 350 year old house built for a local 17th Century Parisian nobleman. They stayed on the 4th floor, with no elevator of course, in what was probably the servant quarters. Ryan and Jennifer may have been living like servants, but felt like royalty.

They walked the streets of this wonderful city for a week and explored every quiet park, magnificent building, and cobble stone street. Upon returning home to Los Angeles, California, the magic of their Paris memories stayed with them. They dreamed of one day buying an apartment in Paris and moving there permanently. It was only a dream, something for retirement perhaps, but it never left them.

One day in 2006, while he was on a business trip to Paris, Jennifer sent Ryan a listing of a studio apartment that she had seen for sale on the internet. To kill some time Ryan made the visit. Without a second thought he made an offer to purchase the apartment that very day. It was an impulse purchase, totally unplanned, and completely influenced by emotion but Ryan and Jennifer never regretted their decision.

Studio La Fontaine became the name of the studio apartment that Ryan purchased that day. It was located on an adorable cobblestone square with a small Parisian fountain in the center. From their home in Los Angeles, they began to advertise and rent the apartment to tourists from around the world. Little Studio La Fontaine still makes many Parisian dreams come true. Ryan and Jennifer used their love of Paris and their understanding of North American customer service to create magical Parisian holidays and to help guests experience Paris as locals.

You really can become a temporary local here.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was fully furnished and well-stocked as advertised, and just as charming, comfortable and convenient as it appeared to be on Cobblestone's website. We loved its great and vibrant location, which allowed us to make multiple forays into the city each day by Metro and on foot, often returning to the apartment for lunch before setting out again. A well-connected Metro station is just down the street.

The ability to shop locally (there's a great market a block or two away that’s held twice a week) and to eat at home saved us some significant bucks. The apartment was secure and quiet (again, just as advertised), and really helped us feel like we were temporary locals. We are now totally spoiled for any future visits to cities where we are staying more than a couple of days.

The reassuring booking process, the thorough email communications and the wealth of detailed information available in advance and throughout our stay were greatly appreciated. Cobblestone's customer service is excellent every step of the way, which is pretty refreshing in a world where too many companies who are providing a service have forgotten its value and importance.

Perfect Apartment in Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Secret du Bastille on our visit to Paris for my birthday and loved everything about it!

First of all, the location is perfect! Because the apartment is located in a quiet courtyard, you'd think you were miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but no -go through the courtyard and everything is right outside your door! The Bastille neighborhood is a bustling, busy neighborhood and shops, cafes, markets, and easy access to the metro greet you as you step outside the cute red door onto the street.

Secondly, what you see in the pictures and in the description online is what you'll get. I had hoped that the place would be half as cute as it looked online and I was not disappointed at all! As a matter of fact, I didn't even bother to take additional pictures to show friends of the inside of the apartment, because it looks exactly as it does on the website. It was also pristine and well-appointed - The owners have definitely thought of everything when it comes to what a visitor staying in a Parisian apartment would want to experience and included a bottle of wine and some chocolates sitting on the table to welcome us when we arrived.

Obtaining the keys was also easy. Because we didn't have them arrange a ride from the airport (although they would have), the manager of the property met us promptly at the place that was designated, showed us around and made sure we were comfortable. Within a day or two, we felt as though we were truly living in Paris

I've already recommended this apartment to friends and family - It's a great place to stay when visiting Paris. We'll definitely stay here again if we get a chance to get back to the City of Light!

- Home was close (hop, skip & jump) to the Bastille train station and all the Bastille, Marais action

- Excellent service by Cobblestone thru'out. A very big call out to Lauren who met us on time, was very responsive to emails and also, gave us the "lay of the land" so we could enjoy our stay in Paris

Excellent accomodation solution in Paris!!!

  • 5 of 5

Since the planning phase of our trip we thought that to find a decent and affordable solution in Paris was very difficult...then we found this cute, clean, comfortable, well-located and affordable apartment in the heart of Paris. Since the first steps of booking everything was so easy and clear as never before in our experience of travelers. The great opportunity to be able to book a dedicated shuttle from CDG to the location at very competitive price was amazingly helpful for the easy beginning and relaxed ending of our trip. Then the meeting with Cobblestone representative was so pleasant like the discovery of the apartment itself rich of all the attention and amenities and the atmosphere of a very warm welcome we found during the entire journey. We strongly suggest this solution if you need comfort, well organized facilities and friendliness during your stay in Paris.

Central Bastille

The best part was being right in the center of things (bakery, grocery, restaurants) but the apartment was very quiet.

Perfect Place for a Parisian Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Le Secret du Bastille is the perfect place for a parisian getaway!

We were 4 adults staying in the apartment which is small, cozy, very clean, and centrally located. The apartment has all the amenities you need: washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, all cooking utensils, iron and board, hairdryer, bed sheets, towels... everything!

The only two negatives are that there's no AC, therefore summer months could be challenging, and the shower is very small especially for big guys. Other than that, the place is perfect for 4 people.

The metro is just 1 block away from the apartment and the area has so much to offer... shops, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, street markets, and more...

The cobblestone staff was very helpful and was always available for any questions. They are detailed oriented and very nice.

I cannot think of a better place to stay in Paris.

We are very happy with the experience and are looking forward to staying at Le Secret du Bastille again! :)

Delight in the energy and history of this vibrant quarter.

The modern Bastille area is focused around the site of the historic Bastille Fortress that was attacked on July 14, 1789.

Since then, this event has signified the beginning of the French Revolution that would topple the monarchy, bring democracy to France, and leave a lot of aristocrats with nowhere to put their hats.

Today, the streets of this area offer countless dining and entertainment options for people of all ages. You can spend your days enjoying history and art, and your nights strolling and eating. This area contains many authentic, yet affordable, French bistros that you wont find in many other Parisian neighborhoods.

A beautiful opera house, a peaceful marina, one thousand cobblestone streets, and an incredible selection of world renowned attractions will keep you occupied for days.

From this central location, you will be walking distance to the major Parisian attractions.

Other Activities: Shopping, restaurants, cafes, sight-seeing, museums, monuments, river, bars, theatre, dance, opera,
