Bastille Boutique Flat. Quiet, elegant 1BR central
from £105 /night help
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
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!

"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!
