Property description

Our pied-de-terre is an inviting home away from home. The library is well supplied with a wide array of guide books, engaging novels set in Paris, and books on the history of Paris and France. (Registered guests are welcome to review the book inventory prior to their trip enabling them to save space in their luggage by leaving books behind.) The new furniture was specially selected to meet the needs of our guests. Lounging in the arm chair and ottoman is the perfect way to recuperate after a long day on your feet in Paris. The bedroom is on the quieter courtyard side of the building where it's common to awake to the soft sounds of birds singing. Two of the best boulangeries (bakeries) in Paris are just a block or two away. The open air market at the end of the street is in the Top Ten in Paris. Vibrant nightlife is just a block away on rue Roquette and other nearby streets. Many top spots in Paris are just minutes away by foot. Place des Vosges, home to French kings and Victor Hugo, is 8 minutes away, Centre Georges Pompidou is 15, and Notre Dame Cathedral is just 20.

Traveling light and needing to do laundry? Two laundromats are just around the corner and have instructions in English. Looking for a unique French taste? The absinthe bar, La Feé Verte, is the next block over and has a suite of their own absinthes. Intrigued by the past? Père Lachaise is one of the most famous cemeteries in the world and has the graves of a wide variety of famous people including: Honoré de Balzac, Sarah Bernhardt, Frédéric Chopin, Yves Montand, Jim Morrison, and Marcel Proust. Enjoy people watching? The Place Bastille is vibrant and full of surprises, from marching strikers (often friendly) to the thousands of rollerbladers streaming through on various Friday nights. The summer solstice offers music and live performance all over Paris, but it's especially lively throughout the Bastille where the whole neighborhood becomes a festival.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Learning French has been nearly a life long hobby starting in junior high and continuing through college. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine myself owning an apartment in Paris! It's truly been an enriching experience, especially introducing my husband and friends to the richness of the city of Paris and the French culture.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 11:
We fell in love with the Bastille area. The apartment is also very close to the Marais and all that it has to offer. Business and family bring us to Europe on a regular basis so having a home to stay in was very important to us. We're delighted to share it with friends, both old and new.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We are building a collection of art at the apartment and love sharing it with our guests. It provides a unique character to our place. Two of the pieces are by friends who live in Paris who have a gallery and give painting workshops in and around Paris.
