About the Property

On the Canal St Martin marina, close to the Gare de Lyon and Gare d'Austerlitz

This is the apartment you are looking for: large (93m2) and beautiful, located in the city center -- steps from the Seine -- with all the creature comforts that you could desire. This meticulously-kept apartment is located on the 1st floor (2nd floor American) of an elegant "Hausmannian" building dating from the end of the 19th century. The tall windows of the living and dining rooms open onto the Boulevard de la Bastille, with a lovely view of the boats in the marina. The bedroom windows overlook a quiet private garden belonging to the building. The large floor-to-ceiling tiled bathroom boasts a 1m2 shower and large bidet; the separate WC is bright and comfortable (see photos).

Located a few steps from the Place de la Bastille (not far from the Place des Vosges) in one direction, from the Gare de Lyon in another, the Jardin des Plantes / Gare d'Austerlitz in another, and finally just across from the Marais, you will have Paris at your feet! (And a very comfortable place in which to rest those feet at the end of a long day exploring the City of Light.)

Layout: the spacious entrance is the heart of the apartment, and leads to the salon, the large dining room, the two bedrooms, the bathroom, the kitchen (which is also accessed from the dining room) and the separate WC. The apartment can sleep 5 or 6 for short-term rentals; 4 persons are maximum for long term.

There are two beds (160 cm and 140 cm wide, respectively) plus a sofabed in the salon.

Equipment: full-size dishwasher, brand new German clothes washer and separate dryer, new electric oven with gas hobs, microwave, coffee maker, coffee grinder, and every piece of kitchen equipment you could ever want. Extremely fast Wi-Fi, cable TV, iHome, 2 Hi-Fi stereos, a printer/copier/scanner, and a portable air conditioner [cools one room only]. The house phone provides free calling to all landlines in Western Europe and to *all* telephones in North America and France.

  • Both bedrooms are quite large, with comfortable wide beds. Each of the two has a desk, bedside table, bookshelf, and an armoire. There is also, a stereo system and a fireplace in the first room. What is more important is that both rooms overlook a quiet garden belonging to the building. They are well protected from the noise of the boulevard! You can close both doors to the living room, and sleep there undisturbed on the sofa bed. (However, it is generally not permitted except for very short stays.)...moreless

Other Amenities

  • My husband and I bought this apartment in 2001, and we lived there for 10 years. For family reasons, we returned to our home in California, but starting in 2018 will return to spending 1/2 the year here. Our loss is your gain: we are able to offer you the chance to spend a beautiful holiday in our very comfortable apartment in the heart of Paris....moreless
