Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Our apartment is located in Passage Courtois, a quiet, cobbled cul-de-sac in one of the coolest areas of Paris. It is just 10 minutes walk from Bastille, known for its opera house and its hip bars and restaurants, and trendy Rue Oberkamf, one of Paris's happening shopping and nightlife hotspots. A couple of minutes walk away are the contemplative, leafy avenues of Pere-Lachaise, the city's historic cemetry. Close by are the grand Place de la Nation and busy Republic. Passage Courtois' immediate neighbourhood is a haven of small shops, artist studios, cafes, bars, restaurants, boulangeries and open-air markets. Easy walking distance to all of Paris's great sites and attractions - or catch a train from one of the 3 Metro lines just minutes away.
When you return after a hard day's site-seeing or Parisian fun, you'll find our apartment to be a quiet, relaxing refuge from the city's hustle and bustle, with all the facilities to make you feel at home. Cook something yourself that you've bought at one of the myriad supermarkets and markets, or nip down and eat at one of the enticing cafes and restaurants in the area. Welcome to the real Paris!

The Paris/Ile de France region
What can we say about Paris? Experience the real Paris: eat, drink and live like real Parisians without being disappointed by overpriced hotels and bars in stereotypical tourist locations! Paris is such an easy place to get around and you can walk to all the famous sites from our apartment.
The eleventh arrondissement is the modern equivalent to Paris's historic Latin Quarter. It is the heart of 'BOBO' Paris (Bourgeois Bohemian) and is a feast of artist studios, independent shops, groovy cafes and superb value-for-money restaurants. Boulangeries, food shops, supermarkets and conveniences abound. We originally bought the apartment here because Parisian friends introduced us to this most genuine and relaxing part of Paris.

"Definitely Not Pet Free"
I stayed here for New Year and my 21st birthday with my parents. We chose this apartment because of the good reviews, the location and the fact that it states that pets are not allowed, an important f… More
This is very distressing news, especially because we have had such good reviews and feedback in the past. We are extremely sorry that you found the apartment in an unacceptable state and have immediately taken the necessary steps to rectify this.
We have spoken to our apartment manager and have not only reiterated the 'no pets' rule, and will ensure that this is enforced, but have also thoroughly reviewed our cleaning procedure.
I will be contacting you directly to discuss how we can make up for your poor experience and hopefully prove that this was definitely an exception.

"Ideal location for a Paris break"
We have thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day break in this flat in Paris. Very conveniently situated in a quiet cul de sac but only 5 minutes walk to a main shopping street or to the Metro. 15-20 minutes walk to the Bastille and another 20 minutes to the Seine - but you will probably saunter and take longer.
The owners were very helpful prior to our arrival and gave us good local information re restaurants/ cafe bars etc - and we found them all very good. A local friend of theirs was there to greet us which we appreciated.
Very near Pere Lachaise cemetery which we visited twice. The 3 day Metro pass is very good value, quick and easy to use.
The best indication of how much we enjoyed it is that we would certainly come back here again next time we visit Paris.

"Great bolthole to stay in Paris"
This is a relaxed, light and airy one bedroom flat tucked away in a leafy cul-de-sac. I was after a chilled long weekend and I had a wonderful time in this Passage Courtois apartment. The place was impeccably clean, modernly fitted out, and instructions were provided in a friendly and clear way upon arrival. I was given great tips for local cafes, shops and bars by the owners, and found the flat particularly good for exploring Paris on foot. The flat is near all the happening quartiers, yet a great base for both classic tourist and hip-and-happening Paris experiences; Père Lachaise cemetery is only around 5-10 minutes walk from the flat, while Bastille is around 15 minutes on foot, with an enjoyable onwards trek to Le Marais - but also, the immediate area is buzzing with very good bars, restaurants and cafes in Oberkampf, Belleville and Ménilmontant. Paris streets can be very noisy, but the flat is tucked away at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac which allows for a restful night sleep. The place was good value for money and I see it now as my ongoing familiar Paris pad as a home away from home.
