About the apartment.

Cosy authentic Parisian apartment of 35 sq, located on the 3rd floor of a WALK UP building (no lift), pierre de Paris. Located on two courtyards, the apartment offers a quiet view over the rooftops of Paris, with no traffic noise. Very private, with no neighbouring apartment looking directly in.

The bedroom catches the morning sun while the lounge room is bathed in the afternoon sun, perfect for relaxing or reading. All rooms have windows, and being on the 3rd floor, the apartment is light and airy.

The bedroom offers a double bed with Simmons mattress (high quality). A wardrobe and iron clothes rack provides space for clothes. The lounge has a quality italian made sofa bed (bought Feb 2014 with a proper 14 cm mattress) which enables two additional people to sleep if required. Dining table and chairs provided. Linen is provided. The kitchen is fully equipped, with induction stovetop, all utensils and a selection of cooking books (should you wish to really cook!)

The bathroom is small but adequate, with shower, toilet and washbasin.

The Location

Located at metro stop Voltaire (line 9), you have direct links to Republique (canal St Martin) and other major transport interchanges. Bastille is a 10 minute walk away (great for the open air Sunday market to stock up on fresh produce), the Seine is also a short stroll. The Marais can be done on foot in 15 minutes, or the Velib bike hire is just across the road and will get you there in 5.

Voltaire is a favourable part of the 11th arrondisement, indeed, also of Paris. Surrounded by quality cafes and restaurants with the trendy Rue du Charonne a walk away (for either French or international cuisine). The community is predominantly French (as opposed to the tourist quartiers), and is a great mix of students, professionals, families and the elders.

Voltaire is reputed as safe and charismatic.


Voltaire village has everything you need. Within 2 minutes walk you have 3 supermarkets, a fromagerie (great cheese) and an award winning boulangerie. A wine shop is on the corner, the butcher is also there, as is the fishmonger, and the post office is across the road.

Bus stop on the corner, velib across the road, and the metro stop just 2 minutes walk.

A little further

There’s no better transport in Paris than walking, and looking into all the windows of the boutiques and epicieries. In 20 minutes on foot you’ll pass through Place de Voges and into the Marais, continue a little further and you’ll come out at the river and arrive at Notre Dame on the infamous islands in the Seine. Cross the final part of the river to head into the Latin Quarter, but don’t forget to come back home for the charming restaurants in the 11th (or see board in kitchen which recommends some authentic restaurants in different parts of Paris). Bon appetite !

When back at home, browse through the art books on the bookshelf, or learn some interesting French phrases from the ‘insult’ book. Maps and guidebooks are plentiful, please do remember though to put them back to allow other people to enjoy. Add your tips and favourite places to the clipboard, and help build an amazing Paris experience for everyone in their home away from home! Enjoy your stay.

Lovely, comfortable flat; perfect neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to Paris, and I was very glad I chose to stay in Rhonda's flat in the 11th arrondissement for five nights. The flat was clean and comfortable and well furnished, and we loved the authentic Parisian feeling of the building. I was traveling with my two young adult children, and there was room for all three of us in the flat. I loved going to the patisserie each morning and conversing in my limited French with the shopkeepers. The fact that the 11th arrondissement is a neighborhood where many do not speak English made it more fun for us. The location was great, and we could walk or take the metro everywhere we wanted to go. A very short walk to Pere Lachaise Cemetery, where I could have spent many more hours than I had.

Rhonda was very responsive and communicative, and she was extraordinarily helpful in dealing with a difficult situation involving a piece of lost luggage that arrived in Paris just as we were leaving for Venice. She went way above and beyond the call of duty in helping us resolve this situation, and I am so grateful for her assistance. I don't think there are many other apartment owners who would have been as helpful. Thank you again, Rhonda, for all you did!

The perfect place in the 11th arrondissement

  • 5 of 5

I spent a fantastic summer (3 months) in this apartment with my husband. It is perfectly located in the most "typically Parisian" neighborhood imaginable, and Rhonda is responsive and easy to work with. The large bed in the bedroom is comfortable, as is the sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to really cook, so people who want to experience the neighborhood markets and then create their meals will be happy. If you don't like to cook you are a relatively short walk from the scrumptious restaurants that surround Bastille. We walked to the river most evenings after dinner and grew to love the neighborhood. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We'll be back as soon as we can.

The Perfect Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 11 nights from September 8th to September 19th, 2014. This was our first trip to Paris. The owner, Rhonda, was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She promptly responded to all inquiries with necessary and helpful information. The listing and photos accurately describe and depict the accommodation. The apartment is located in a nice neighborhood and has quick and easy access to transportation (ie: the metro). It has everything you need and want. i would have no hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends or to anyone who is looking for a nice, reasonably priced place to stay in Paris.
