You will love the place (have a look to the review).

Our lovely Paris apartment is conveniently located near the art and shopping area of the Bastille with quick and easy access by direct Metro/underground or bus ride to Paris main sites. Situated on a quiet street, right across from a pleasant park, in the heart of a typical Paris quarter/section, the neighborhood of Paris is a safe and friendly combination of residential, small stores, restaurants and leisure.

You'll be able to enjoy lesser known and appealing aspects of daily life in Paris. For example, the Aligre market (Marché d'Aligre) is 3 minutes away. This vivid and colourful food market is open everyday except Monday. On weekends, its large variety of affordable local, and regional products attracts shoppers from all around Paris. You will be able to enjoy a rich and diverse choice of authentic cafes, restaurants and wine-bars within few minutes walk.

We will welcome you if you wish and we'll be glad to recommend our favourites.

About Colette Vayness

We live in the same building for more than 18 years and we simply love the neighborhood of Cental Paris : centrally located, safe, calm and lively, residential yet full of small commerce, art (architects, designers), coffee houses, restaurants (very reasonable prices and luxurious one)

and the exceptional market (open every day except Monday) of Aligre.

We'll be more than happy to share our favorites with you.

Close to the Bastille Opéra.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Warm, quiet and easy location"

The Lovely Paris apartment was a welcoming and easy start to our European winter trip. Our family of four were comfortable, and the location is perfect for fresh food shopping, close to an amazing market, wine shops, patisseries, chocolate shops and even an organic grocery shop. The metro is close, making getting anywhere in Paris a breeze.

Colette and Shalev made booking, arriving and departing very easy, and were available to answer any questions, such as a good local doctor, or a restaurant recommendation. There is also a lot of information on Paris sites and activities in the apartment. They put much care into ensuring visitors' experience of Paris is as wonderful as possible.

Thank you very much, the Robarts family.


"The most incredible, perfect vacation in a very lovely Paris apart"

From beginning to end, our stay in Paris was amazing! Colette, our hostess, kept in touch with us. From Virginia, USA

Great location! Everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a good location in Paris. It was close to the metro station so we could easily do sightseeing from here. Colette was a wonderful host. Her son met us when we arrived and was also very charming. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Paris - I will definitely stay here again.

Great Apartment in Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in a quiet neighborhood. Located near a multitude of shops, grocers and restaurants within short walking distance, and a 5 minute walk to the Metro (making it easy to travel quickly to all major attractions). The apartment is clean and well appointed … nicely accommodated three adults on our trip in May 2017. Colette was extremely helpful both before and during our stay. Would highly recommend this apartment!

Really comfortable down to the last detail

  • 5 of 5

We were only here for three nights, and stayed in a flat which is slightly different from the one featured here. Everything was just perfect - very comfortable, it seemed as if Colette and Shalev had gone through all the things they had missed on their travels and made sure that their visitors lacked nothing. We had a very warm welcome from Colette who phoned us to check everything was ok. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to come again!

excellemt little apartment.

  • 4 of 5

we stayed in Collette's apartment last year around Febuary. She is such a friendly and helpful persona nd just could not do enough for us. We had a great time and found it easy to travel around Paris from here. All the info was very helpful and informative so we were able to make the most of our visit. Collette was extremely accommodating and helpful. The apartment was clean and exactly as expected with lots of kitchen utensils etc. Thank you Collette. Elaine & Chris Cornwall UK
