We can definitely vouch for the Marais and Bastille areas with their tons of cafés and restaurants.
Boulevard de la Bastille faces the "Port de l'Arsenal", the nautical entrance to the Canal St-Martin and all the waterways that connect it to Paris and the Seine. The Bassin de l'Arsenal (boat basin) /Port de Plaisance is a *marina*. It is in the heart of the city, really charming in a Parisian way, and near good public transportation links like Gare de Lyon (to go to the South of France, Italy and Switzerland), Gare d'Austerlitz (to go to Versailles) and Bastille.
Come discover the Marais-Bastille area between Ile Saint-Louis and Place de la Bastille:
It's a wonderful place to walk or jog, have a café, picnic -- there's even a park for young children there. Another wonderful green space nearby is the "Coulée Verte" above the Viaduc des Arts that was featured in a recent film starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. So we are not lacking in green space nearby. Finally the zoo is to be found across the River in the Jardin des Plantes.
Visit the Bastille Opera House and the “Rue de Lappe” with its many ethnic restaurants and pubs. Enjoy a cruise on Canal Saint-Martin leaving from Place de la Bastille or the Batobus leaving from Jardin des Plantes across the river.
For those who come to Paris on business, they will be between two train stations Gare de Lyon and Gare d'Austerlitz, close to RER A which crosses the whole of Paris up to the area of La Defense (in 20 mn); they will not be far from the two major airports (direct buses to and from Gare de Lyon); the metro station that services the apartment, Quai de la Râpée, is directly connected to Roissy Airport via Gare du Nord.
The apartment building is situated half a block from the Seine. The Quai de la Rapée Metro is just a few steps away, and there's a Vélib station right next to it. The Metro (Line 5) exactly one stop away from Line 1 (which takes you through the Marais, the Louvre, the Rue de Rivoli, the Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, etc.) and one stop away from Line 10 (which takes you to the 5th arrondissement, Odéon and St. Germain des Prés ... all the way to Boulogne). Plus Line 5 itself has its merits, one being that it takes you directly to the Gare du Nord (and Gare de l'Est), as well as to the Place d'Italie, which is a great centre for Chinese and Thai food.
A plus is that this building has a real garden out back, which is fairly rare in Paris.
Two covered parking spaces in the garage below the building are available, each for an additional 15 euros per day (a real gift!)
You can stroll along the Port de Plaisance de Paris or the Open Air Sculpture museum, get in no time into the Jardin des Plantes and the Latin Quarter. Our neighbour, the latest modern art museum and private foundation in Paris, la Maison Rouge, was inaugurated on the 5th of June 2004 at number 10 of the Boulevard de la Bastille. Within walking distance (10 minutes) are Ile saint-Louis, Ile de la Cité (with Notre-Dame), the Place des Vosges with French novelist Victor Hugo's house in which he wrote his novels, especially Les Misérables, and Musée Picasso. Within walking distance (15 minutes) there is also Marché d'Aligre, the typical and cheapest daily open-air food market of the capital.
