About listing

Pristine first floor apartment of 106 square meters in lively area just a few steps away from Place de la Bastille ideally situated for shopping, museums, markets, 'La Coulée Verte', the Marais, Place des Vosges, with very convenient metro and bus stops. The apartment is in pristine condition, elegantly and comfortably furnished with hard wood floors, a 25 square meters fully equipped kitchen/dining room with direct access to a private 30+ square meters terrace looking onto a quiet inner garden for comfortable outdoor dining. It boasts a lovely sitting room, two bedrooms, two separate shower rooms and two toilets. The apartment was recently totally refurbished.. Food shopping is facilitated by several supermarkets within easy walking distance, and small bistros abound in this very popular part of Paris. There are many excellent eateries in the Rue de Taillandiers itself. Available in the apartment are linens, towels, hairdryers and full kitchen amenities. It is equipped with WI-FI, cable TV, DVD and allows free phone calls from our fixed landline to other fixed landlines in over 50 countries including the USA. The building is highly secured, requiring a code for the main entrance as well as a second different code for the elevator. My very friendly greeter meets upon arrival, orients you with the property and is available for questions during your stay. For a reasonable fee, he is also happy to arrange transfers from/to the airport or station is you so desire. Keywords: Condominium

  1. This was a great apartment, in a wonderful neighbourhood. The apartment was very well equipped, and Charles, the manager, was very responsive, and gave us many helpful tips and suggestions. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to live like a Parisian, but with all the comforts of home. 17 November 2011 - 20:58:43

    We stayed in the apartment during the last week of September 2011 with 2 friends. The apartment is very spacious & well appointed with a warm & homely atmosphere. We found it to be an ideal place for 2 couples to share. In the unseasonably hot weather in Paris that week the large balcony was an added bonus that was used for breakfast every morning as well as evening relaxation. The location is perfect with easy access to restaurants, shops, supermarkets & the metro. Even though this is a vibrant part of Paris with plenty of nightlife we found the apartment to be quiet & peaceful at night, even with the windows open. Charlie, the property manager was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. He was easy to contact during our stay & also arranged a car to take us to the airport on our departure day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment. 20 November 2011 - 22:34:43
  3. This apartment was an absolute delight. After a long day of sight-seeing, it was so relaxing to come back to this comforting home with its very spacious and tastefully furnished rooms. The huge terrace is delightful -a great place to enjoy your 'wine time'. The apartment is equipped with everything you will need and all the appliances have very clear usage instructions. Jean, the owner, and Charles, property manager, were both so friendly and helpful. They do all they can to make your stay extremely pleasant. The neighbourhood is such a buzz - so Parisien and so lively- and full of excellent shops and cafes;however the apartment street is very quiet at night. The apartment is just a very short walk to the metro Bastille which is on a major metro line. We loved staying here and will certainly be recommending it to all our friends. 06 June 2012 - 10:31:29
  4. We enjoyed our week in Paris and the apartment was a perfect place for us. It was located close to the Metro and it was spacious, comfortable and secure. We enjoyed using the terrace. It was the perfect place for our cheese, wine and bread. Charles was very helpful with the orientation to the apartment as well as giving us excellent information about places to eat, the markets, and things to do. We would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Paris. 18 July 2012 - 19:57:19

    We stayed in Jean's apartment and loved everything about it. The apartment seemed bigger than it looks in the pictures. We (my husband, 19 year old daughter and I) were more than comfortable in this spacious well appointed home. The entire apartment was spotless. The location is great, the area is full of nice restaurants, bistros and bakeries and a quick 3 blocks or so to the Metro station. Charles was helpful before we arrived communicating with us thru emails, and met us at the apartment upon arrival. He is great, knows the area quite well and was happy to answer our questions and give us some superb recommendations. We would love to return here in warmer weather and sit outside and have our coffee in the morning and a glass of champagne in the evening...hopefully we'll be back soon! 22 January 2013 - 01:37:30

    My partner and I have stayed in this apartment for the past three years, staying each year for three months. The apartment is completely furnished in all respeccts- from the large kitchen with all necessities- to the two bathrooms. Located near the Bastille, there are two metro stations, numerous excellent restaurants, stores of all types, as well as out-door markets. The meticulous upkeep meets our own fastidious requirements. The owner is redily available as well as an apartment manager. We have recomended the apartment to friends who share our enthusiasm. 14 August 2013 - 20:30:36

    Everything was as all the previous reviews I read before arrival. It was clean and in perfect condition. Charles met us as he said he would on the curb and introduced us to the codes and the apartment. He then answered all the questions plus gave us some good places to go. The neighborhood was excellent with nice restaurants and our concern about noise was quickly overcome when we closed the shutters. We were two couples for four nights and two bathrooms were great for saving time and providing privacy. I suggest reading Jean's instructions before turning on the TV but in Paris who needs a TV. Thank you Jean for such a nice place to experience a neighborhood in Paris. 08 September 2013 - 22:53:07

    This apartment is a real find in Paris! It is very spacious and well-appointed with two large bedrooms and two very nice full baths. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need to cook a full meal. The dining room table will seat 6 comfortably. There is also a terrace with table and chairs for outdoor dining. The pictures on VRBO do not do it justice. It was far more than we expected. The location is convenient to the Bastille Metro stop and to taxis. There are several restaurants and bistros within walking distance which serve very good meals. You are also within walking distance of the Le Marais district. The proprietor, Charles, is wonderful! He met us at the train station and took us to our apartment. He also arranged a taxi ride for us to the airport on departure day. He walked us around the neighborhood to give us an orientation to the area, pointing out good restaurants and grocery stores. I highly reccommend this apartment to anyone looking for a home away from home in Paris! 16 September 2013 - 17:14:37

    Lovely apartment and quite large for Paris. Pictures on the internet are accurate. Everything was spotless and in excellent working order. We were 2 ladies staying there by ourselves and I felt quite safe with all of the security codes needed not only for access to the building but also for the elevators/stairwells. The only complaint we had was the noise in the apartment above us. We learned upon leaving that this apartment was also a rental and unfortunately, the people staying there were very loud and it sounded like they were moving furniture and banging throughout the night. We were assisted on arrival by Charles Pineda who proved to be an excellent resource throughout our stay. Charles informed us that had we notified him, he would have taken care of the problem with the noise in the apartment above us, so just know that he is available to assist if you experience a similar issue. Can't say enough about how quickly he responded to our emails asking for assistance with the metro etc...throughout our stay. He even helped calling a taxi for us to the airport when we left. He was great! 09 October 2013 - 01:25:27

    We planned a vacation to visit our daughter in Paris for the Christmas holiday. After an extensive search in the 11th arrondissement (district) we found this spectacular, spacious apartment within a block of her place. Once we booked the apartment, we were in contact with Jean's property manager, Charles. Charles explained the apartment operations and was available to assist us with anything, he even met us the morning of departure at 6:00 AM to finalize our stay. The apartment is a beautiful home in every detail, including a Christmas tree. The kitchen dining room is spacious, well equipped with appliances to prepare meals, dish washer, washer/dryer are available. We prepared several memorable meals. There is a nespresso machine in addition to a coffee pot to start the day. We felt completely at home in Jean's place. The living room is spacious and comfortable relaxing and entertaining. The apartment is located in a very secure building on the second floor (European first floor) and is very quiet. It is conveniently located near several excellent restaurants and local grocery stores. On Sunday we attended a farmer's market a couple of blocks from the apartment buying cheese and many local food products. The old adage "A house is where you hang your hat, a home is where you hang your heart" best describes this fabulous Paris apartment. Thanks to Jean and Charles, our Christmas holiday was one we will remember for a lifetime. We will definitely stay at Jean's apartment in the future. 27 January 2014 - 00:16:14

    This is an impeccably maintained apartment in which it is very easy indeed to feel absolutely at home. We stayed here for 4 nights and everything was provided for our comfort - even, as anther review has reported, down to the Nespresso coffee maker! The beds are comfortable and the extensive kitchen/dining room and large balcony are specially impressive. In addition, it's easily accessible, no more than 5 minutes walk from the Bastille metro station, and there are plenty of restaurants, supermarkets etc. within easy reach. (We would particularly recommend the restaurant Les Galopins just across the road - very charming service and the shoulder of lamb is memorable!) It's difficult to recommend this apartment too highly. 26 March 2014 - 11:53:48

    This is a great property for a visit to Paris. Fantastic size for an apartment, beautiful patio area, large kitchen and living room. You have everything for a few days or a week or more. The location is close to restaurants, public transportation, and an active nightlife. Close to the Bastille. I would definitely stay here again when in Paris. 04 June 2014 - 13:19:47

    Three adults stayed in this apartment for a week. It is a gem. Nicely furnished, clean and spacious. The owner, Jean, and the greeter, Charles, are both accommodating and available. I would rent this apartment again in an instant. 09 June 2014 - 20:59:22

    I highly recommend this very nice and spacious apartment in the Bastille district. We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning. The apartment was very clean and nicely equipped; we loved having the Nespresso machine and appreciated the great Internet connection. Charles was very helpful and it was rather nice to have an English-speaking greeter upon arrival after such a long flight. We can't wait to return! 04 August 2014 - 23:49:07
  15. Craig R.
    The apartment was terrific! It was very clean and felt like home. Charles was very nice and told us everything we needed to know about our home for the week and the area and was just a phone call away if we had any additional questions later. We enjoyed the Bastille area very much as it gave an opportunity to "live like the Parisians" while still being close to the major sights of Paris. The Metro was within a few short blocks of the apartment and we were able to figure it out without difficulty. There were many restaurants, bistros and our favorite French Bakery which we frequented way more than we should have very close to "home". I would highly recommend this apartment! 09 June 2015 - 01:22:49

    The apartment was all that anyone could ask for. It most comfortable, clean and so very well appointed. The terrace was such a beautiful place to sit, relax with a nice glass of wine after a long day of sightseeing in what had to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The neighborhood was most attractive with wonderful cafes, shops etc. right there for your convienience. Being new to Paris, Charles, the apartment manager was most helpful in securing our travel to and from the airport and in every other way possible. If your going to Paris and you are looking for a WONDERFUL place to stay call "your own", I cannot stress strongly enough, 25 Rue des Taillandiers IS THE PLACE you are looking for. In addition, Jean the owner not only has made her home available, she has made sure that EVERYTHING you might possibly want or need is there for you, FREE Wi-fi, FREE telephone calls to landlines in the USA, all local calls, a washer and dryer and on and on. Most importantly Jean is a lovely lady, so pleasant to deal with and so very accomadating. I thank you Jean for making your home available to us. We so thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning some day! 18 June 2015 - 17:31:32

    This delightful and spacious apartment was wonderfully accommodating for our family of 5 (with children aged 5, 10 and 13). Spotlessly clean, it was a tremendously convenient spot to which we could retreat after each daily Parisian adventure. Despite it being in the thick of a vibrant, busy neighbourhood (with the fabulously close Marche Aligre a daily treasure trove of fresh food), noise was not a problem at night, and the private terrace was a huge bonus for relaxing evening chats. Charlie, the Manager was enormously helpful, welcoming and friendly. We hope to return! 16 September 2015 - 01:53:53

    Stayed in this terrific flat for four nights. Spacious and very comfortable. 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. (Second bath toilet is in separate room). Large kitchen with large dining table. Very comfortable living room. Was great to have washer, dryer, and dryer rack. The terrace was lovely even though it was a little cold while we were there. The flat is in a great area near the Bastille and a short walk from the metro station. Lots of restaurants, shops, and a grocery store within walking distance. Check in and out with Charles were very easy. 26 October 2015 - 16:15:02

    This is a great luxury apartment to stay and tour Pairs. The accommodations were impressive it was clean with many amenities available. Good location for walking and touring Paris with great restaurants just a short distance away. Charles was there to help with any questions you may have it was safe and comfortable. 02 November 2017 - 15:32:00
    Bastille apt was our home for the new years this past week. We followed prior reviews and definitely this place has charm, comfort, its cozy, like your home away from home. Location is great, there are several (probably dozens) of restaurants and shops around it. Its 2-3 blocks from Bastille plaza everything is walking distance. Easy accessible to metro, taxis, uber, etc...Very comfortable place for a family, couple or even a group of friends. We stayed there with my 3 year old son and he "loved" his room, the small terrace, etc. It is very well equipped with basically everything you need. Its right in the east-center but very well located. We truly loved our experience here. Charlie (property manager) was available even when not in town, and we truly appreciate this. 07 January 2018 - 23:53:00
