This is a highly unusual, very spacious studio apartment (28Mc/ 300 sq ft) with large floor-to-ceiling windows. Very sunny, full of light and energy, overlooking a long Park stretching to La Bastille. Perfect for 2 people, or a couple with one child.
It consists of entry area, large kitchen opening onto a large living room, plus modern bathroom with enclosed shower. All spaces have large windows. It has been totally refurbished and repainted (October 2012), and beautifully decorated. Everything is top quality and in excellent condition. It is fully equipped including : hair dryer, iron, TV (CNN, BBC, etc), high speed WIFI/ internet, phone (free calls to US).
The kitchen is a joy to cook in. It is equipped with all appliances : refrigerator/freezer, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and of course all necessary cooking and eating utensils. There is a dining table set up against large windows so you can take your morning coffee and meals gazing out onto the Park.
In the living room, there is a very comfortable red leather “Roche Bobois” couch/pull out bed (converts into a queen bed 160x200) and armchair, plus desk and coffee and side tables. Sheets/towels are new and top quality/high thread count.
The flat is located in a residential area 2 blocks from the Marais/Place des Vosges, full of local cafes and restaurants. It is a 3 minute walk to La Bastille and Opera Bastille, very convenient to the Louvre (5 metro stops), Musée Picasso (15 minute walk), Centre Pompidou (20 minute walk). Plus, at La Bastille you will find 3 metro lines (#1, #5, #8) assuring easy connections throughout Paris.
As a bonus, every Thursday and Sunday there is a large open air food market a few steps away from the flat. This market is one of the best and most popular in Paris. Perfect for food shopping and people watching. It is a ‘foodies’ heaven!
This flat is the perfect Parisian 'pied à terre', an excellent base from which to explore and to enjoy this amazing city that we love so much.
Attention : This is a non-smoking flat.
We had a fabulous stay at this lovely flat! The accommodations and location are perfect for comfort and ease. There are numerous restaurants a block away but it was also fun to gather items for an in room picnic at our "home away from home. The close proximity to the Bastille metro makes for easy travel for sightseeing and getting back to the airport. Philippe, the manager, was fabulous! Very helpful with our questions! My daughter and I would definitely stay here again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming, centrally-located gem. I lived in Paris for years and continue to visit each year, and this is one of my best apartments I've rented. It's beautifully appointed, close to restaurants, cafes, metro, and just minutes from the heart of the Marais. And the host was very communicative and helpful. Planning to book again for next year.
I travel to Paris often for work and so pleased that I discovered this gem in the Bastille! It's in my favorite neighborhood - windows face the Bastille market (where I got eggs, fruit and cheese), super close to the Metro where there are many lines, a great boulangerie down the block and many restaurant options. The apartment - with entrance tucked in a courtyard - is modern and comfortable, full of natural light, clean and well appointed (the kitchen was well stocked with olive oil, teas, pasta, etc. as well as plates, pots and cutlery). Other reviewers had trouble with street noise, but I kept the windows open at night and slept peacefully - I did hear faint music from a jazz club, but it wasn't loud and thumping. The only downside is no lift, but there aren't that many stairs up to the apartment. Philippe is a good communicator, very helpful and a good manager. I will definitely go back! (They deserve great reviews, but selfishly I hope this gem will stay just a bit undiscovered...)
We stayed in this delightful apartment for a perfect week. Philippe was at the door to greet us, charming man and very helpful in everyway. The kitchen was great, bed VERY comfortable, bathroom great, paintings, decor and owners personal touch perfect! Huge windows open on to busy street, leafy street views, markets great, metro close, great restaurants etc. We can't stop raving.We loved our stay in this magnificent apt. The perfect find for us.
I could not have found a better flat than this. I stayed here for 9 days with my boyfriend for a work/holiday and we were so comfortable here. The pull out bed was VERY comfortable, the flat spacious, the windows were very soundproofed against the busy street. There is an open air market just outside the door on Thursdays and Sundays that was so great, one of the best farmers markets I have been to in a city. The location is great, a main metro line just down the street that will get you directly to anywhere you would want to go in Paris. The area has a ton to offer with restaurants, shops, boulangeries, patisseries. Michael met me there and was so lovely and accommodating. He made some wonderful suggestions that we took! Everything was so easy with this rental. I will absolutely come back and have already recommended it to some traveling friends of mine! Thank you so much Philippe and Michael!! This flat is the perfect home-base for any holiday.
We have been to Paris many times and rented many different apartments. This apartment is one of our favorites. The location is very good for walking and public transportation. The neighborhood behind the apartment is lively and has everything you would need for "living" in Paris. The apartment itself looked just like the pictures, bright, nicely decorated, and very clean. As others have already said, the market, people watching from the large windows, sitting at the marble table, sipping wine and enjoying snacks from the local merchants was easy to do from this apartment. Philippe was great to deal with, communicated well and made the overall rental a breeze. I definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here on our next visit to Paris.
