“Charming Apartment in a Great Location”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I spent a week at the Secret Du Bastille and just loved the experience. The neighborhood was great (very lively with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants right at the doorstep) However, just as advertised, as soon as we walked through the courtyard to the apartment, all the city sounds melted away.
The owners have done a fantastic job of creating the perfect Parisian atmosphere with whimsical décor (100% looks just like the pictures on the website) The apartment was also spotless and again as advertised included Free WiFi and phone calls (They also had TV and a DVD player with movies to choose from - but we were never home much before midnight every night, so didn't use that feature)
Picking up the key was easy as we were in touch with management prior to arriving via email and were given directions on where to meet and what to do if delayed etc.
We will definitely stay here again if we're ever lucky enough to be back in Paris and highly recommend the property to all our friends.
(One thing to consider is that this is an older building so there is no elevator and, while we loved it, the winding staircase is narrow with worn treads so not the best for those not steady on their feet.)

We love to hear this! Our mission is to make each guest feel at home and to help create memorable Parisian experiences. The fresh country market that you mention is right outside the apartment a few times weekly, and we are glad you had the chance to enjoy it. Merci - Jennifer & Cobblestone Paris
