Studio Vacation in Bastille, Bercy - Gare de Lyon - Nation (PA-2824)
Studio, 1 Bathroom - Sleeps

This furnished 30 m2 (322 sqm) studio apartment is located on the Ground floor of a 19th century building.  The main entrance gate is protected by an intercom. The building entrance door opens onto a paved courtyard leading to the apartment’s door.

The entrance door opens directly into the living area. It is furnished with a single size sofa bed, two armchairs, a console, a coffee table and a shelf. In front of the window opening onto the courtyard, there is a table which can be used as a desk or as a dining table. The living area features white walls and furniture, which give the room a more spacious feel as well as complement the natural light that enters the space. The owner lives upstairs in a private apartment so the staircase is only decorative.

On the right is a separate kitchen equipped with electric burners, an oven, a dishwasher, a refrigerator with a freezer compartment, a coffee maker and a laundry machine. This kitchen has a window and you should enjoy cooking you meal in there.

The bathroom was renovated in 2019. It is furnished with a shower, a washbasin, a walk-in cupboard and a toilet.   

This apartment is located close to Gare de Lyon and Bercy, a neighborhood with lovely gardens, the Palais Omnisports de Bercy where many important sporting events and shows take place throughout the year, and the Cine-Cite, a cinema that offers the widest range of movies in Paris. The Coulee Verte, a new jogging trail, and parks that were installed on top of the old railroad viaduct leading to the Bastille, is about 100 meters (0.06 miles) away. In the Bastille area are many particularly good entertainment options such as its new Opera House, as well as restaurants and pubs that are regularly frequented by artists and young people.

The nearest metro station is Gare de Lyon (line 1, 14 – RER A).

This is a terrific rental with great value and excellent location near the metro. The owner is very organized and makes sure you are looked after - she has thought of everything and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, instructions for TV are precise and logging on to the internet is a breeze.

The apartment is very cozy and quiet when neighbours upstairs are not around, else you can hear every thump and move they make. The spiral staircase is not a surprise as this is common in France, yet its not practical for people who have difficulty climbing either due to a medical condition, age or excess weight. It also makes it impractical to carry large suitcases upstairs.

We enjoyed our stay and will return - thanks!

Thanks a lot for your review Mahnaz. I am very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. True, I also think it is a great place and I enjoy sharing it with those who wish to explore Paris.

My vacation rental is a duplex with the two rooms connected by a spiral staircase as stated in the description and as shown on the photos. It is on the ground floor and first level of a building located right in the heart of Paris. You may hear the wood floor creak, but on the other hand you are not disturbed by the noise from the street or the vibrations from the subway that you can feel in most Paris apartments.

On the contrary, you can be woken up by the blackbird song in the morning.

I was very comfortable in this Paris apartment, it was very cosy and comfortable even if it's on two floor levels. It is very convenient if you arrive by train and the apartment is very close to many bus lines and a few subway lines, but you can also walk to many great attractions in the city. There are also restaurants and supermarkets in the neighborhood as well as all kinds of shops that you can easily walk to.

The apartment is clean but the nice thing is it's a lived-in apartment, full of souvenirs, books and pictures, so it's warm and welcoming, it has its own charm, even if it means less space for your own belongings.

The apartment is very quiet; but I was unlucky just because just those days - only 3 out of 7 days - the neighbor decided to do some small works in their apartment. The kitchen is small but has the needed equipment. The corridor that leads to the apartment is quiet and picturesque.

The whole building looks good. I think it is good value for money. The owner is friendly and we easily came to an agreement for the means of payment.

Guests have always liked the apartment and they are usually very happy both with the space and with the personalized welcome. It is a pity you didn't let me know about your grievances while you were here and waited to be back home to share your bad luck.

This was a wonderful apartment, perfect for 2 people. It is cozy with ample space (is a small duplex) and charm, and is artfully decorated. The owner was helpful and extremely nice.
The area is convenient with good restaurants and one of the best markets in Paris. We would definitely return to this apartment.

It was excellent. Nicely equipped kitchen, great hot water, lovely place.

Loved the access to nearby market, would highly recommend that for produce shopping, as well as some interesting brocante (flea market). Excellent bakery across street, good elevated walking trail access 30 seconds away. Good metro access.

We would recommend the apartment to someone traveling with a third person, child or friend, since it offers a bed and second toilet/sink downstairs. Spiral staircase no good for people who have trouble climbing stairs, otherwise fine.

Mostly very quiet, no street noise, some loud neighbors but who doesn't have those?
Definitely a terrific rental.

Although we very much enjoyed our stay in the vacation rental in Paris, we were very bothered by the construction noise going on in the apartments around us. My suggestion would be that if the owner is aware of this she does not rent it out the duration the construction is going on. We were awakened every morning at 8am and never had the chance to sleep in due to the pounding on the walls around us. Additionally, the shower could not hold it's temperature and would consistently run from scolding hot to freezing cold.

The apartment owner apologized for the construction nuisance, as she was not aware. She said there is no longer any construction noise and the shower has been repaired.

The apartment was terrific: very warm, clean, quiet, and bright. It was very spacious, which is rare for a Paris apartment. It was even better than the pictures. The owner was very nice and helpful. We were with a toddler and she loved going up and down the spiral staircase and being right on the courtyard. We couldn't have asked for more and were thrilled to have found [this Paris accommodation].
We would definitely rent this apartment again or recommend it to others.

We had a marvelous week in Paris. The apartment was perfect! [The owner] welcomed me when I arrived and was very hospitable and left maps of the area we were staying in. The apartment which has wonderful character with all the lovely books and art on the wall was so welcoming and relaxing to come home to at the end of day of sightseeing. The neighborhood was fantastic with a wonderful green grocer across the road and down the road a bakery that provided us with fresh baguette every morning and eclairs in the evening as well as wonderful restaurants for an aperatif of Kir.

Also the viaduct just behind the apartment was wonderful to run along - allowing me to eat all the wonderful French food.

When I visit Paris again I can't imagine not staying at the apartment [...] in the 12th arrondissement.

Merci beaucoup pour des vacances incroyables!!!!
