Elegant, Light-filled Apartment Near Bastille And Marais

Bedrooms 1
Space 807 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, Study, Living Room, Designer Kitchen, Antiques, 810 Sq.ft.

The apartment is located on the third floor (US fourth) of a late nineteenth-century building with elevator. It overlooks the trees and elongated park of boulevard Richard-Lenoir. All rooms have high ceilings, moldings, wood floors and large double-pane windows. What made us fall in love immediately with the apartment when we bought it ten years ago was the light. We also love the location, the proximity to very diverse neighborhoods that can be endlessly explored.

The front door opens onto a spacious entryway with a large bookcase. The living room and study/bedroom have balconies facing the boulevard and a Western exposure. The living room is furnished mostly with antiques : a dining room table and six chairs, three armchairs, an armoire, a crystal chandelier, a Turkish rug and some smaller furniture, as well as a small folding couch that sleeps one. The bedroom, which opens onto a small quiet courtyard, has a double bed, a desk, a dutch stove and three closets. The third room, which was set up as a study, has a desk, two single beds, a closet, and two rugs.

The kitchen was entirely renovated by an architect two years ago, with custom-made cabinets and a breakfast table where we eat our meals when we don't have guests. It is fully equipped with new machines: stove, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, washer dryer, food processor, coffee maker, etc. The bathroom has a tub and shower. The apartment is equipped with full telephone, internet and cable television service. Calls to the US, Canada, and Europe are free.

Spacious well-equipped apartment in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I spent a wonderful week here with my two young adult granddaughters and my cousin who had stayed here once before. Everything the was as noted by other reviewers – the fine residential neighborhood, the supermarket close by, the tempting twice-a-week street market, easy access to the Metro, and the well-equipped kitchen and spaciousness of the apartment. Last, but not least, the kind and helpful hosts, and Thierry’s help when my cousin lost his wallet on the way to checking in. My cousin, a native Parisian, is already looking forward to his next visit, when his granddaughter turns eight.

Bright, homey, spacious and charming suite in central location. Parisian heaven

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, central, locals neighbourhood. Feels authentic with antique decore, quirky elevator, locals strolling with kids and dogs below the balcony. Big, bright windows and lots of room for family of four. Wonderful, attentive hosts. A little piece of heaven in Paris!

Very comfortable apartment in non-touristic area but within a few minutes walk to Marais, Bastille. Close to many Metro lines, great markets, local restaurants and super markets. We enjoyed our stay and loved exploring the neighborhoods in the area.

Beautiful, comfortable, great for all guests

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed a week staying in this wonderful apartment. Our two kids (11 and 13) and we felt very at home here. The apartment is also beautiful and quite spacious. The kitchen has been redone and is equipped with all conveniences for any cooking at home. The location was perfect - close to everything but not too busy. An added bonus was the market in the park across the street every Sun/Thurs. I also want to mention Helene who was our Paris contact and showed us into the apartment. She was so incredibly warm, welcoming and available to us. We were so sad to leave our little Paris home and would book here again in a heartbeat.

Chaleureux et très bien situé

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné 5 semaines, du 20 mai au 23 juin dernier et nous avons été très satisfaits! Les échanges de courriels sont rapides,l'appartement était tel que sur les photos et merveilleusement situé. Madame Catherine était présente à l'heure prévue et nous a aidé concernant un petit pépin de santé. Le retour du dépôt s'est effectué comme promis, et ce, rapidement. Merci pour tout, moi et mon conjoint y retournerions volontiers!

Car: not necessary

The apartment is on Boulevard Richard Lenoir, a tree-lined avenue which was built over part of the famous Canal Saint Martin. From the apartment, you can take a walk along the uncovered portion of the canal, with its picturesque bridges and locks. The building is midway between the Place de la Bastille and the Place de la République and is close to three subway stations. It is a safe neighborhood.

There are two open markets, Bastille and Popincourt, both a few minutes away on Boulevard Richard Lenoir: The Bastille market, one of the largest in Paris, is very popular with local inhabitants and tourists alike. The beautiful Place des Vosges, the Picasso Museum, and the historic and fashionable Marais neighborhood are within easy walking distance, as are the Winter Circus and the Coulée Verte (an elevated 5-km park comparable to New York's High Line). The Pompidou Center is about a half-hour walk or a short subway or bus ride away. In the same area, the Hotel de Ville plaza turns into a free skating rink in winter. Longer walks will take you to the famous Père Lachaise cemetery, the Buttes Chaumont park, or to the Seine and the Left Bank.
