With fully equipped kitchen, good sized living room and dining room, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, the flat will give you plenty of room. East and west exposed, it is amazingly sunny and bright all day long. Its newly renovated decor includes a refined blend of classic and modern styles.

Super apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideal. Light and airy with plenty of space for the family and convenient to a supermarket and the metro. We loved the view of the rooftops of Paris.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review ! We are very glad that you liked your stay in our flat. Yes, indeed, being in the top floor is quite nice, since you have a view on the romantic rooftops of Paris... and, the flat is quiet. Well... it is nice as well to have the elevator to get you to the 5th floor ! Hope to see you again. Nathalie

Fantastic flat in a wonderful part of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Natalie's flat. It was the top two floors of the building and felt much more like a home than a rental. All of the amenities were in perfect order and she and her daughter were very helpful during our stay. It was wonderful to stay in such a beautiful space with a grand kitchen to cook in. So many rentals tend to have kitchens that are barely serviceable, but this was very large, well-equipped, and well-stocked. There were tons of guidebooks and magazines in many languages which we found helpful. The space was very close to 2 different Metro lines within a 5 minute walk each. We really felt like we were staying in a family home and this made us all feel very relaxed and helped us really enjoy our time. I would not hesitate to rent this property again on our next visit to Paris. Thank you Natalie!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice review ! I am very happy that you felt "at home" : this is exactly my goal ! You know, that my guests feel like they have like a second home in Paris... I am glad that you enjoyed the kitchen... Like you, in most rentals, I miss so many things to do real cooking ! And great meals are part of great holidays, aren't they ? Thank you also for mentionning the 2 Metro lines, line 1 and line 9, that get you almost everythere in Paris. I just realize that I forgot to tell you about another line, which is a bit further (10 minuts walk), but very useful since it is RER A, a speed line that crosses Paris within 15 minuts (and also gets you and your kids to Disneyland, too). I hope you had an flight easy flight back. And I hope you come back some day !

Great Central Apt

  • 5 of 5

We came to Paris with 2 families with small children (2 months, 6 months and a 5 year old!) The location was great and safe. Close to the metro and a convenient grocery store right below. Also an easy pick up spot for UBER. Good food and friendly business in the neighborhood. Apartment was perfect with the bedrooms upstairs and living area downstairs. Nathalie even got us a Pack and Play Crib for the baby.

Elevator is small but you just have to fold up your strollers if you're coming with small children.

Would stay thee again if we come back to Paris!

Beautiful Place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment on the 5th floor in the popular and bustling Bastille neighborhood was delightfully well appointed, comfortable and charming. Nice neighborhood views, a comfy bathtub for sipping champagne in and relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Its central location near the Metro made getting around a breeze--and its proximity to shops and great restaurants was especially handy on evenings where we wanted to stay closer to home. Nathalie our host was very helpful, and extremely responsive to questions. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Amazing Paris Apartment--It has everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and two teenagers stayed here for spring break. It's the best VRBO apartment we have ever rented. First off, it's so much bigger than I expected for a center-city Paris apartment. Large, charming kitchen, very large and comfortable dining room. The living room has a very comfortable couch. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, each a good size with comfortable beds. The custom walk-in closet in the hallway was big enough for all of us to share. There's one full bath and then a toilet and shower on the lower level, very handy when travelling as a family.

The neighborhood is just wonderful. It's a very quick walk to three separate Metro stations--Voltaire, Bastille and Ledru-Rollin. The market at Marche Aligre and the surrounding area is a foodie paradise. We went there nearly every day to buy things to eat in the beautiful kitchen. There are so many good restaurants right in the area we often felt like not leaving the neighborhood. Our favorite was Pause Café. The small Carrefour right next to the entry to the building is a very handy as well for juice, water, chocolates, beer, etc.

The apartment is also an easy walk to Pere Lachaise cemetery, which is worth the trip. It's also possible to walk to the Marais, which we really liked as well.

Overall, I doubt we'll ever stay anywhere else in Paris. This is just too good.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write such a precise review ! I am very glad that you enjoyed the flat and the neighbourhood. I love the Marché d'Aligre too, because you find there so much fresh food at unbelievable prices. And it is such an atmosphere ! Also the Carrefour near the building is very handy for almost everything from food (fresh pasta, meet, bread) to shampoo and good wines. And it is true that there are so many restaurants around that sometimes, you just prefer to stay around. But as you said, the 3 metro stations will bring you in all touristic places in Paris in less than 10 minuts, so my guests also like to go to Notre-Dame, Le Louvre, La Tour Eiffel, Le Sacré-Coeur... or Versailles ! Anyway, thank you again. I hope we will see you again !

Amazing base in Paris...

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely apartment... we stayed here for Paris Fashion Week with a group and it was a perfect base for us. The apartment is full of Parisian charm and Character with some stunning features and design. The location is really good too. It is NOT right in the tourist area (this is a good thing) but is located next to some lovely streets, local cafes and is based right in the heart of 11th so not far from the tourist spots for site seeing. Without fail we were able to get an Uber within 5 minutes at any time of day and night and most places are walkable from here....
