Bastille Lovely Apartment



Updated: 28-Oct-2016
Apartment Bastille 36m2, 2 rooms, Paris, France - Lovely Paris Apartment, Central, Calm

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 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'll be glad to recommend our favourites.

About the Owner

We live in the same building for more than 18 years and we simply love the neighborhood: centrally located, safe, calm and lively, residential yet full of small commerce, art (architects, designers), coffee houses, restaurants (very reasonable prices) and the exceptional market (every day except Monday) of Aligre. We'll be more than happy to share our favorites with you.

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

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

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A genuine Parisienne apartment close to Ledru de Rollin metro. Easy enough to locate. Home owner lives in the same building and provided excellent directions. Two teenage daughters slept in double bed, and my husband and I slept on The really comfy and large bed settee. Kitchen has everything you'd need. Has large fridge/freezer for any food you might bring. Apartment close to McDonalds, large supermarket, fruit shops, bread shops, pubs and restaurants. Very quiet area situated off a busy high street. Close to a large daily market and church. Ledru de Rollin a quiet metro which links to all the major stops. Very near to the Seine and Notre Dame area. Just wish we'd had more time to explore. Don't be put off by the queues that you read about. They all go quickly with time for people watching! Definately do the boat ride at night to watch the sun go down. Very romantic. We were working on a budget

so cooked in the apartment quite a bit. Collette has left tons of reading material and maps, etc in lots of different languages. Apartment looks over a lovely little courtyard. Because it was hot we slept with windows open and it was very quiet. TV has english channels and news channels. In Paris be prepared to do a fair bit of walking. I would definitely go back to this apartment again. Any one who had stayed there all wrote lovely reviews in the book. It's not new and pristine, but has original old floorboards and original bits of French furniture and has character. Collette could not have been more friendly and has an open door approach. Just remember its up a couple of flights of stairs so will not be suitable if you have mobility issues or prams.

Lovely Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little Paris apartment. We stayed for 9 nights. We really got to experience Parisian life. We even attended mass in the local church. What a little gem this apartment is. Central to everything yet so quiet. Only the sound of bells ringing, children playing. So quiet to sleep. Food markets so close and the produce is fresh and excellent. Cafes, patisseries, Boucher and public transport so close. Colette and Shalev are the perfect hosts. Every detail is covered. We loved our time here and would definitely return. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Cosy nest in snowy Paris

  • 5 of 5

The flat was as good as the description, possibly better than expected. It was clean and tidy with everything we would need. The owner was easy to contact and made sure we were settled with all the information and advice we wanted. There were many specialty shops and a market close by and a well stoked and supermarket. A thoroughly recommended flat in a busy area close to all the links but still a peaceful haven after a busy day seeing Paris.
