About the home
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 Central Paris / 11th / XIe area
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.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
The easiest way to reach our apartment is using the Metro. From the airport/s or Eurostar (Gare du Nord) take a connection for line 2 and travel to Phillipe Auguste, or line 9 to either Charonne or Voltaire. The flat is a maximum 5 minutes walk from any of these three Metro stations.
We can then send you details of how to find the apartment and to get the key.
You can also drive to the apartment - as we often have - but a word of caution - have fun finding parking in Paris!

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.
