In this 55 square meters holiday apartment, you can enjoy all the comforts of contemporary urban living, yet within the charm of a historic Parisian neighbourhood. The Bastille square that once was the stage of the French revolution today houses the Paris Opera, and in the surrounding streets you can find an endless choice of cafés, bars, and restaurants.
Equally close, just at five minutes walk, you can enjoy the special atmosphere of the most beautiful square of Paris, la Place des Vosges, from early 17th century, and next to it, the charming Hôtel de Sully. This is where the Marais starts, nowadays one of the trendiest districts in Paris, full of original fashion boutiques, art galleries, and of course, restaurants and bars – many of them gay.
When back at your Parisian home, you can appreciate its stylish parquet floors and designer furniture with glass tables featuring the palette of a painter, and all the light coming in through the windows facing a bright, quiet garden. As a matter of fact, you can easily sleep with your windows open, despite being in the centre of Paris. Your bedroom has a comfortable double bed, which, thanks to an ingenious mechanism, can easily be stowed in less than a minute to a decorative library, giving you more space during the day. The living room sofa can also be quickly converted into another bed for one (or two) persons.
To further relax, indulge yourself in the luxury of a spacious designer bathroom with two sinks, hair dryer, large bathtub, and both a rain shower & hand-held shower.
During your stay, you can live and delight your friends like a true Parisian master chef in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the preparation and serving utensils you may need. Just at your doorsteps you will easily find a couple of supermarkets, but you should definitely not miss a true Parisian market on Thursday and Sunday mornings, with the freshest produce around: vegetables, fruit, seafood, poultry and meat, and of course, French baguettes.
The apartment is located on the fifth floor of a safe, modern building with elevator.

The Ile-de-France region
There are thousands of different reasons for spending your holidays in Paris, depending on each and everyone’s tastes & preferences. This is because Paris simply has so much to offer.
No matter if you’re visiting Paris for the first time, or coming here every year, you can’t help but being impressed by the beauty of its historic monuments, such as the Bastille, Place des Vosges, or the Louvre, plus hundreds more, all within easy reach. You can visit them conveniently by hopping in one of the many sightseeing buses at the Bastille, or do it more leisurely, by sitting comfortably in one of the river boats on the Seine, and let the sights just float by.
You can hardly talk about a visit to Paris, without talking about the French cuisine, just waiting for you to try in a variety of restaurants, or right at your footsteps at the local market, where you can buy the freshest products, many of them organically grown. Thanks to the cosmopolitan nature of Central Paris, you can easily find a restaurant to fit every taste of the world. However, in case you’re vegetarian, you may have to make some extra effort to find a restaurant to cater for your tastes. There is one in just 10 min walk from the apartment.
Paris is of course the city for lovers, and you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to locate your personal romantic hideaway in one of the city’s squares, along the Seine, or perhaps at the nearby Port de l’Arsenal behind the Place de la Bastille.
We chose this flat location because of its easy access to the most pleasant areas in Paris, yet allowing all the modern comforts of contemporary urban living, something that one appreciates after having lived previously in a historical building.
Although most visitors initially head to Le Marais for its historic attractions, don’t be surprised if you end up spending more time visiting its art galleries and trendy fashion boutiques. Check also some of the newest boutiques at the Boulevard Beaumarchais, including the famous Merci.
As everywhere in Paris, you shouldn’t miss the Parisians’ most favourite pastime: people-watching on a terrace of a café, while sipping your café crème, or perhaps a glass of wine. You’ll be amazed by all the different styles you see going by, until you’ll probably adopt your very own Parisian style, as well.
Having walked through the Marais, you’ll reach the famous Centre Pompidou Art Museum. Its striking architecture still continues to appal many, but inside, you’ll find one of world’s most impressive collections of contemporary arts. If you’re into more traditional art, be sure not to miss the Musée d’Orsay for its impressionists, and of course the Louvre with its magnificent masterpieces. Both of these, as well as many other sites (e.g. Eiffel Tower) are easily accessible by bus 69, with a stop right at the exit of the apartment.
If you’re an opera fan, you should definitely visit the Paris Opéra at the Place de la Bastille, next to the apartment. Tickets can easily be purchased on-line, but be early!

"Wonderful location, well appointed apartment that worked well for my my family of three"
We really enjoyed our stay here - Lars is extremely professional and covers all the details. The flat is good sized, and close to markets and metro access. Since it is a few floors up (with a lift) it is quiet, and was a perfect choice for our weeklong stay in Paris. We travelled with our 16 year old daughter and it worked well for the three of us.
Happy to see that your stay with us in Paris was an enjoyable one. I look forward to seeing you back again soon!

"Magnificent Location, Space and Experience"
Spent six days in Paris for the first time. GREAT location for exploring the best or Paris. Initial reception was wonderful and flat well appointed for our holiday. We will be back!
Glad you enjoyed your stay at our apartment in Paris. As you probably realized, there's so much to see and do in Paris, that you really appreciate the comfort and peacefulness of your own flat, so close to everything. Hope to see you both back again soon!

"Super Comfortable, Well Located and Secure"
This was my second time in the Bastille Boutique Flat - first time on my own. I had some difficulties with my trip into Paris and the owner and his house manager were both wonderfully helpful and supportive. We regard Bastille Boutique Flat as our home away from home in Paris. The flat is very well provisioned and the welcoming bottle of wine was very much appreciated.
Our purpose is to provide you with a home away from home and we're very happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Look forward to welcoming you back soon again.

"Fab apto near Bastille"
Despite the chilly & rainy Paris weather, my stay in Paris was terrific mainly because of Lars' wonderful apartment, a 5 minute walk to Bastille, only 1 block to Place des Vosges, Marais. It was always a pleasure to return to the apartment , rest, then go out to a nearby resto or cafe for a meal or drink You cannot go wrong renting this clean, modern, spacious, light filled apartment in a quiet building on a quiet street overlooking a pretty courtyard & Parisian rooftops. I particularly enjoyed being so close to the Marais area, but within walking distance of Place Republica & St- Martin canal area as well as the newly trendy & bohemian rue Oberkampf.. Two nearby metro stations/lines made it so easy to get anywhere in the city centre & getting to/from CDG airport is a breeze via metro/trainRER B. Vivent l'apartement de Lars.& his super friendly & informative greeter/hostess, Martine!
Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Please come back, any time!

"The Bastille Boutique Flat - feeling at home in a great part of Paris"
Our hosts had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and effortless! The flat itself is spacious and very well designed to accomodate our group of 3 people. It was quiet, light-filled, modern and had a really lovely wall of windows that look on to courtyards and the famous Parisian roof tops. The elevator to this 5th floor apartment figured heavily in our decision to rent. The twice weekly market is almost outside the door and is a super treat. The flat is fabulously located in a residential area accessible to 3 or 4 different metro lines so it was very easy to get around the city. We did a lot of walking in the Marais amd Bastille areas which have great shopping and eateries. Our hosts left restaurant suggestions which we used and enjoyed. I would say that the flat rental was a key factor in what turned out to be a fabulous week in Paris- I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family!
We're very happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you back again soon!

"Exquisite atmospheric apartment with everything conveniently nearby"
Firstly, Lars, the owner could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The apartment is just wonderful and setup for everything you could reasonably require for a city break, and although located in an atmospheric Bastille apartment block it is decorated to a very high and modern standard. Local shops, street market, bars, and restaurants are all handy as is the Metro to get you out and about. We have a wonderful stay.
It was great to have you staying with us and we hope to see you back very soon again in Paris!

"Adorable well-located apartment"
We stayed in this apartment for 1 week and totally loved it. The location is awesome, and the apartment is very comfortable. Had a little trouble working the washer/dryer, but otherwise an ideal place to stay. The owner is very accessible, and even brought a small heater to the apartment because we were a little cold the first night, and the building hadn't turned on the central heating yet. The apartment manager, Martine, is first-rate, available for questions and help during our stay.
Happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you managed to work out the use of the washer / dryer with the help of the English instructions booklet that I have prepared for all of the equipment that may be unfamiliar to visitors from overseas. We hope to see you back again in Paris soon again.

"Superbe expérience Parisienne"
It was our first trip to Paris and we wanted to stay in a neighborhood not a hotel. We were seeking the chance to rent something comfortable and tour on our own. If you are not concerned with walking, using the Metro or finding what you need in the little shops of Paris, then the Bastille Boutique Flat is the perfect place for you! The apartment is a cosy, attractive place on the fifth floor of a secure and well-maintained building. There was ample space for my wife and I and the apartment includes a sofa bed if your party is larger than two. The pictures on Trip Advisor are quite accurate, but I felt as if the apartment was more comfortable and attractive in person. Truly quiet when you want to sleep and only a few minutes from the Marais district in one direction (The Place des Vosages is about four blocks away) and Place de la Bastille in the other.It has everything you need for your stay and all the appliances are in top shape. I particularly appreciated the booklet that the owner prepared on how to use the appliances (including the phone). The wireless internet allowed us to use an IPad to plan our excursions. Communication with Lars was easy and he was quite patient and helpful for this 'first-timer'. We were met by his associate on the day we arrived and Martine did a wonderful job of orienting us to the apartment, the neighborhood etc. She provided helpful tips and offered to be available by phone in case any concerns came up. We were pleased with every aspect of this rental opportunity. Again if you are the type of traveler who can bypass the tourist hotels and enjoy life like the locals, I heartily endorse the Bastille Boutique Flat for you. Thanks Lars and Martine! Hope to return again soon!
Happy that you had such enjoyable stay with us and look forward to seeing you back in Paris another time. Kind regards.

Bastille Boutique Flat is a wonderful one bedroom apartment, impeccably decorated, with an impressive utilization of space. It was perfect for our family of three (2 adults and a teenager) and exceeded our expectations. More than adequate natural light flows into the very comfortable living room. The ktichen is fully equipped and includes a dishwasher. The bathroom is spacious with a separate adjoining room on the side for the toilet; it also comes equipped with a washer and a dryer if one is in need of doing laundry. The owner has a binder full of directions on how to use appliances, which is very helpful. Location is great. A short walk to the Metro, with many cafes along the way. There is a bakery close by, as well as a grocery store. Thursday mornings there is a meat and produce market just around the corner. Notre Dame is a comfortable 25 minute walk, with shops and boutiques along the way if you so wish to meander in and out. The city bus tours ("Hop on Hop Offf" style double-decker buses) stop about four blocks away from the apartment, directly across from the Bastille traffic circle. The owner has represented his apartment honestly and accurately. The building is in a quiet neighbourhood and there is no noise to interrupt your sleep. Wooden exterior shutters keep out morning light if you care to sleep in. Note that elevators in Paris are generally small and the one that leads to this fifth floor apartment is likewise small, but don't let that deter you unless you are absolutely claustrophic. I recommend this fantastic apartment. The owner, Lars, was quite friendly and accommodating in his emails, though there is an independant manager that meets you to give you the keys and let you in. Much, much better than choosing a hotel with a cramped room. Suitable for 1 to 4 people. Try it out and enjoy Paris!
We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us in Paris and that the apartment exceed your expectations. Hope to see you and your family back soon again.

"Fabulous convenient apartment!"
This is a fantastic apartment. My only concern is rating it so highly is that it might not be available next time I want to stay there! Excellent for 1 or 2 people. I think it'd be a bit of a squeeze for more, but possible. Great location for walking, on edge of Le Marais/Bastille. Located close to Bastille Metro, which is on 2 lines that then connect to (it seems) all other lines you might want to use. Also close to Sun. & Thur. street market (Marché Bastille) which has great food merchants. Kitchen is equipped for actual cooking, not just morning coffee. Excellent washer/dryer, and even a drying rack! And best of all, a really simple to use manual on how to use all appliances/electronics in the apartment! I loved the bathtub - very nice after a long day of walking all over the city. Quiet (facing the courtyard), with great light & air into the living area. This is really the best rental apartment I've used yet!
I'm really touched by the fact that you've had such an enjoyable stay in our apartment. Since we're not in the hotel business catering for hundreds of clients, it really matters to us that the few guests staying with us have such memorable experiences like you had, while in Paris. It would be a pleasure hosting you again here next time you’re coming to Paris. Just let me know well in advance so that I can book the apartment for you, ahead of others.
