About Charles Pineda

I am a retired widow and am lucky enough to spend a

great deal of my time travelling and having fun. I now spend

quite some time in Paris and appreciate the convenience and comfort of my apartment there.

Charles Pineda purchased this condo in 2008

Why Charles Pineda chose Paris Arr. 11 (Bastille)

I acquired this property as a 'pied à terre', so that I could enjoy the wonderful buzz of Paris whenever I have the inkling!

What makes this condo unique

Located in one of the most vibrant areas of Paris, access is easy for all the main Paris attractions. Despite this, the apartment is quiet and the terrace adds the extra attraction of outdoor dining.

A Real Paris Feel

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in a neighborhood that gives you the feeling of being a local. The wonderful garden area was a delight in the morning for coffee and later in the evening to relax and enjoy French wine!

Great apartment!! Wonderful terrace!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this apartment and thoroughly enjoyed it. The living room and kitchen are very spacious, but we spent most of our time outside on the terrace. Huge doors and windows open onto this very private, quiet outdoor space making it ideal for dining al fresco. The apartment is as pictured and has lots of amenities that will make your stay very comfortable. It is a short walk to the metro. While our street is quiet, the neighborhood is lively and everything you need is within walking distance. We would highly recommend renting here with confidence. The property manager is also available for anything you need.

Elegant apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with three friends while in Paris and loved it! It is elegant, immaculate and very comfortable. The best part is the lovely terrace outside the kitchen. It's in a lively neighbourhood with great restaurants, close to the metro, and close to a market. Charlie, the apartment manager, was fantastic with information before our arrival. We booked transfers from the train station and to the airport through him and everything went without a hitch. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Fantastic apartment and great find!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow – this place is amazing! Stayed here under a week and it truly felt like home. The apartment is beautifully decorated and has all the modern conveniences, Elevator, (washer/dryer, dishwasher, espresso machine, wifi, TV, etc.). The location is outstanding…just a few steps to Restaurants, Supermarket AND ten minutes walk to Picasso Museum. Our two young adults children loved the location and community. The apartment is in a VERY secure building with a lovely quiet Patio with lots of potted plants. We felt quite at home in the patio and ate most of our meals there. The kitchen is so lovely and equip we ended up cooking lots of our meals in and eating in the patio, being fortunate with the weather helped as well.

Charles, the manager went above and beyond, picked us up from the Train Station with a driver we had set up, showed us around the apartment AND walked the neighborhood with us showing us the Supermarket, favorite restaurants and fun place for our two kids.

Although, the apartment is near restaurants and a buzzing neighborhood it's also a very quiet and peaceful place for sleeping.

We Uber everywhere, Tour Eiffel, Arc de Triomphe, Jardin du Luxembourg, Notra- Dame and of course Museums.

Definitely going back and hoping to stay in Jean's beautiful comfortable and secured apartment.

Great communication with the host with very easy check-in/out. Highly recommend staying here - we loved it!

Merci, Thank you, Gracias,

Well-located, Spacious Apartment with Beautiful Terrace

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect Paris spring week at this apartment off the Rue de la Roquette with our two teenage sons. The apartment itself is large by Paris standards and was very clean. Charles, the property manager was punctual, took time to explain details regarding the appliances and was very knowledgeable about the area. We also took up his offer to arrange transport to and from CDG which allowed us to have a nice stress free arrival and departure experience.

The master bed to be particularly comfortable. The showers and kitchen appliances worked well but as is typical with European clothes washers: beware your laundry could take some time. The terrace is very nice. We have noticed that apartment terraces often don't live up to expectations in one way or another but this one is the exception. It is large and very nicely situated with a large patio table and chairs. Unfortunately it was not warm enough for us to manger en terrasse but in the summer it would be very pleasant. Being on the first floor (2nd if you're American) made for quick and easy access via the elevator which - unusual for Paris - can accommodate several people with their luggage.

There are many restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood and we particularly enjoyed the bistro directly across the street. For kitchen and household supplies the ubiquitous MonoP is steps away, with a larger Monoprix close by down the street. The streets in this area of Paris are lively but safe to walk around at night.

The location is ideal for sightseeing. We mostly used the Bastille Metro station but Voltaire and Ledru-Rolin are also close if your destination suits those better. Many of the popular central sights are within easy walking distance. We walked to Notre-Dame and also to the Pere Lachaise cemetery which is close by and well worth a visit.
