Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Sainte Marguerite - GREY Apartment

Newly renovated apartment near Bastille and Marais

Charming apartment with elevator.

Located in the very fashionable district 11th of Paris near Place de la Bastille and Gare de Lyon and just a stroll from the beautiful Place des Vosges.

It is a trendy district where Parisians live and work while taking advantage of 30 green spaces open to the public.

If you like walking, you can stroll along the Canal Saint Martin, famous thanks to the film (Marcel Carné, Hotel du Nord).

The apartment is situated between place de la Bastille, place de la Republique, the Père Lachaise Cemetery and not far from the Marais.

Bastille apartment (4 rooms)

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Paris was really pleasant and everything was exactly as described on the website. It was very clean and tidy and is obviously cared for! The owner was extremely helpful all through, top marks for customer service! We fully intend to return at some stage and would most certainly recommend it to friends and family. We particularly liked the fact that the Metro was near, and also supermarkets and bakery's were very close. For us and all round great experience.

Lovely week in Paris

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as described and was very clean. It was maintained to a good standard and we were particularly appreciative of the radiators and the constant hot water. Customer service was speedy and efficient. It was very easy to get to the centre using Line 8 from Faid'herbe -Chaligny (just over 1/4 hour to Concorde). The area was respectable and pleasant to walk round. We walked to Pere Lachaise and back from the Place des Vosges. Given more time we would have liked to explore the local area more fully, especially the woodworking workshops. The taxi rank by Faid'herbe-Chaligny metro station was very handy for getting to the Gare du Nord at the end of our stay. The local supermarkets were very useful and we enjoyed a reasonable meal in the Pure cafe across the road.

Grey appartment

  • 5 of 5

I spent two weeks in the grey appartment in February. It was very clean and tidy, and looked like the pictures. Arnauld was very prompt at responding to my e-mails, making sure that everything went smoothly, and also very prompt at returning my security deposit. Nothing negative to say about the appartment, I would not hesitate in recommending this to others.

The 11th is my favourite area of Paris, as it is away from the tourists, meaning I get to practice my French, and the local shops do not over inflate their prices. It is also easy to get into the more touristy areas from this part of the 11th. This appartment for me then, was perfectly placed; a 3-4 minute walk to either Charonne or Faudherbe metro stops; a 10 minute walk or so to Bastille, or across the river to the Jardin des Plantes. I also felt perfectly safe walking back to the appartment late at night.

Whilst I like to try different appartments in slighly different areas of Paris, I think I would be hard pushed to not want to stop here again on my next visit to Paris.

Apartamento formidável.

Tivemos uma exclente estada em Paris. Proprietário muito correto e cuidadoso. O apartamento é muito bom, próximo a duas estações de metrô, restaurantes, supermercados, lojas e feira livre. Recomendo a todos.

Excellent Facilities & Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I loved our stay in the 'grey' apartment. It was a perfect base for our 6 night holiday in central Paris.

The apartment is on a quiet street near the Bastille region, and is only 5 minutes walk from the nearest Metro station (Faidherbe Chaligny on line 8). Easy to reach from Gare de Nord, with lots of nice cafes & restaurants all within walking distance. In particular the Bistrot Paul Bert (2 mins walk away) is well worth a try. There is a supermarket, pharmacy & bakery all within 2 minutes walk.

The apartment itself consists of a bedroom with a lovely comfy double bed, and lots of wardrobe space. Within the wardrobe is a fan & a vacuum cleaner if required. There is also a lounge/diner, which has satellite TV, DVD, hifi, phone, mobile, free wifi, etc.

The lounge leads into a small but fully functional kitchen, which has a sink, drainer, oven, hobs, fridge/freezer, coffee machines, and a dishwasher. The oven & dishwasher are actually one unit - a fantastic idea that I've never seen before but which is great for people who only have small kitchens!

Finally there is a shower room, with sink, toilet & shower.

The apartment is fully heated with radiators in every room (which we needed in mid-November), and is serviced by a lift (again which is needed because the apartment is on the 4th floor).

The apartment was clean & tidy when we arrived, and everything matched the description offered on this site.

All in all I can't find fault in anything, and would thoroughly recommend this apartment if you are venturing to Paris. Much nicer than staying in a hotel, and more economical because both the room cost and being able to cook your own food will save lots of money.

The owner (Arnaud) is quick to respond to email queries, and provided full details about everything before the initial booking, and then at every further step from payment to arrival & departure.

The refundable security deposit was returned in full within 3 days of our departure.

When we return to Paris in a few years time we will definitely contact Arnaud to see if he has availability!
