A Two Room Flat (60m2) Next To The Metro & RER 15 Minutes Away From Paris Center

I am renting a 646 sq. ft. flat (60 m2) in the town centre of Vincennes.

The Château de Vincennes metro station ( Line N°1) or the Vincennes RER (fast train - A line) station are three minutes away and will take you to the center of Paris (Châtelet station) in 10 minutes (RER) or 20 minutes (Metro). The Metro line N°1 is the automatic central line running through several main stations : Nation (8'), Gare de Lyon (12'), Bastille (14'), Hôtel de Ville (18'), Châtelet (20'), Musée du Louvre (24') Concorde (28'), Etoile (36'). The RER station is very convenient to go to the airports, to the Gare de Lyon or the Gare du Nord (Eurostar) which is less than 30 minutes away. This RER line also takes you to Disneyland.

A Velib’ station (3 min. away) will allow you to visit Paris on a bike.

This very quiet flat is on the first floor of a nineteenth century building. The windows open out onto a street (lounge facing south) and gardens (bedroom and kitchen facing north). In spring, you’ll probably be woken up in the morning by the many birds singing in the trees.

The flat is very close (3min.) to many good quality shops in Vincennes' town centre, to a typical outdoor French market (Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays), to the Vincennes woods with its Floral gardens and lakes where you can rent a rowboat and the beautiful medieval Castle of Vincennes.

The flat has one bedroom with a large (1,60 X 2 m / 63 X 78 inches) four poster bed with a high quality mattress; one large lounge with an extra bed for one person ; one eat-in kitchen ; one bathroom with a large bath and shower and a separated toilet with a wash basin.

The flat decoration has been carefully chosen, associating modern furniture (Le Corbusier and Marcel Breuer armchairs in the lounge, traditional Gatti bistro chairs in the kitchen, designed lightings fixtures…) and carefully restored antique furniture. The entrance hall, the bedroom and the lounge have kept their old and warm oak floor.

The kitchen has a gas stove, a microwave, an electric toaster, different types of coffee pots and machines (Bialetti, Bodum, electric), an electric kettle, fresh pasta machine etc.

The washing machine is in the bathroom.

In the lounge, you will find a large screen TV set (42” Sony Bravia) and a good quality hifi with Cds and DVDs.

A broadband internet connexion is provided.

+ Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, iron and iron board.

Linen and bed linen are provided. As well as the usual pillows, one neck-pillow is available.

You will not have to go shopping straight away when you arrive after your journey : basic food is stored in the cupboards (tea, coffee, sugar, oil, pasta, rice, salt and pepper etc)

There is a locked room on the ground floor where you can leave your bicycles.

I live in the same building so I can advise you or help you if you wish during your stay. I am half English and half French so we won't have any difficulty if you only speak English !

Très agréable séjour en plein centre ville !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été agréablement surpris par les volumes et la décoration que composent cette appartement et la quiétude des lieux. Notre séjour a été rendu agréable également grâce à l’accueil, la courtoisie et la disponibilité du propriétaire ! Les commerces et les transports en commun à proximité sont un atout supplémentaire. Nous recommandons la location !

El apartamento ideal, limpio y con estilo

  • 5 of 5

Este año repetimos! Una apartamento de ensueño limpio, tranquilo, con estilo y funcional... Anthony siempre tan agradable, discreto y amable. Su ubicación es privilegiada cerca del majestuoso castillo y precioso bosque de Vincennes. El apartamento se encuentra a pie de metro, linea directa al centro de Paris y tiendas, todo y eso una sensación de paz y bienestar constante por su tranquilidad, buen gusto y espacio luminoso... Fuertemente recomendado!

Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It was full of interesting things and we left with lots of ideas for our own home. The owner was very helpful and friendly and provided a folder full of very useful and helpful information. We also loved Vincennes and went to several of the restaurants recommended by the owner , we particularly recommend Restaurant La Rigadelle and Le Mediterranee, although they are both very different.. There are plenty of shops and lovely patisseries close by. There is also a great market. Getting into Paris was no problem and access to Euro Disney was straight forward. We would certainly stay again and would recommend to anybody who doesn't want to stay in the centre of Paris.

Bel appartement en plein centre de Vincennes

  • 5 of 5

Nous nous sommes sentis très à l'aise dans cet appartement traversant, plein de charme et de recoins, nous faisant découvrir le travail d'artiste de son propriétaire par les tableaux accrochés aux murs.

La petite cour intérieur procure une sensation de calme et fait oublier la vie parisienne trépidante ; idéal pour se reposer après une journée passée à courir les musées !

Et la Vincennoise "de souche" que je suis a eu plaisir à retrouver sa ville embellie, encore plus accueillante et agréable.

Merci Anthony, nous reviendrons lors d'un prochain séjour parisien !

Un lieu avec un âme - et confortable.

  • 5 of 5

Partis de notre province pour passer une semaine à Paris: voir des amis, faire du shopping et visiter des musées, nous étions tombés un peu par hasard sur cet appartement sans doute attirés par les photos de l'aménagement. En réalité c'est un lieu plein de surprises pour qui aime l'ancien mélangé avec le moderne. (l'art contemporain sur les murs, c'est la petite surprise du chef qui n'est pas visible sur les photos du site). Bref, un lieu avec un âme ce qui n'est pas pour nous déplaire.

Du point de vue pratique tout était parfait. Cuisine agréable avec tout ce qu'il faut, Monoprix et pleins de commerçants de proximité à deux pas (fromager divin). Nous avons même reçus des amis "chez nous" à manger un soir dans la grande cuisine avec vue sur la verdure, on oubliait presque que nous étions à Paris...

Le métro vous amène au Louvre ou au Centre G. Pompidou en 20 min (porte à porte). Bon, la fondation Louis Vuitton est plus loin, mais difficile de tout avoir !

Nous avons passés un très bon moment, et je pense qu'on reviendra bientôt sur la même adresse, car tout bonnement nous y étions très bien.

French Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Welcomed by the owner with a cup ot tea,a friendly and helpfull manner , calmed me after travelling since 4.30am.Everything in this enchanting apartment was "home away from home" from washing machine to cooking utensils to fantastic bath which I soaked in every night.Comfortable King size bed with tall french windows which opened up ànd allowed the night stillness to flow through and the mornings activities welcoming without being too noisy.

I loved the fact that once I left the apartment it was only a short walk to caffes,patisseries,supermarket,fashion boutiques,the metro and railway station.

15mins by metro and you are in the heartbeat of Paris,15 mins you are back in the sanctuary of Vincenne-

so easy if you have walked a thousand steps in the morning to go back to the apartment,relax and venture back into Paris early evening as I so often did.

I didnt watchTV or a video but there was certainly a huge selection as well as CDs.

I fell in love with the kitchen ,the view from the table was gorgeous, the soap arm in the laundrey intrigued me and I have now orderd one for my home in Australia.

I so recommend this charming apartment, it was my home for the week and I really wished I could have packed it all up and bought it back to Australia with me.

The owner, Anthony offered to walk me to the railway station and help me buy my ticket to CDG airport which I thought was so caring and he insisted on carrying my luggage down the flight of stairs.

The apartment is a reflection of the owner, and once you have experienced its.comfort and charms,you will be drawn back to experience it all over again.!!!
