                  Location

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Discover yet another part of Paris, the Marais-Bastille area between Ile Saint-Louis and Place de la Bastille:

                  visit the Bastille Opera House and the Rue de Lappe with its many ethnic restaurants and pubs.

                  Enjoy a cruise on Canal Saint-Martin leaving from Place de la Bastille.

                  For those who come to Paris on business, they should know that the apartment is between two train stations Gare de Lyon and Gare d'Austerlitz, close to RER A which crosses the whole of Paris up to the area of La Defense (in 20 mn).

                  They will not be far from the two major Airports (direct buses to and from Gare de Lyon).

                  The metro station that services the apartment, Quai de la Rapee, is directly connected to Roissy Airport via Gare du Nord.

                  You may stroll along the Port de Plaisance de Paris or the Open Air Sculpture museum, get in no time into the Jardin des Plantes and the Latin Quarter or visit our neighbour, the latest modern art private foundation in Paris, la Maison Rouge.

                  Within walking distance (10 minutes) are Ile saint-Louis, Ile de la Cite (with Notre-Dame), the Place des Vosges with French novelist Victor Hugo's house in which he wrote Les Miserables, and Musée Picasso.

                  Within walking distance (15 minutes) there is also Marche d'Aligre, the typical and cheapest daily open-air food market of the capital.

                  You will find all kinds of caterers and shops (including a Monoprix and a Carrefour store) in the vicinity.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1984

                  About the owner: A Bryn Mawr graduate, after travelling extensively and living and working in the US and Iraq, I have taught English in higher education institutions for years. I lost my husband in February 2012. Our 25-year-old twin sons live with me when they do not work in Ireland, London or Denmark: Emmanuel is a cartoon animator and Jonathan an IT engineer currently launching his own start-up with two engineer friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
                  The apartment is located on the 6th floor while we live on the 5th, so that it is very easy to provide our guests with good service: it is very reassuring for them as well.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Although small, the apartment is uniquely central and enjoys a magnificent view over the whole of Paris, with the Eiffel Tower twinkling in the distance at night, an extraordinary sight for all our guests. It is the perfect base to stay for a young couple as it is so reasonably priced.
