Beautiful quiet duplex at Bastille

Very peaceful and charming 60 m2 duplex recently renovated in an 18th century house facing a private garden. The neighborhood is typically parisian but not touristy. The flat is very well connected with public transport.


The flat, located on the second floor (third floor for Americans), is very quiet and light, with 4 large windows facing a beautiful roof garden belonging to the flat's owner. The bedroom and bathroom are downstairs, and the big living room with open kitchen and an additional toilet are upstairs. You will feel like in a real house: oak floor, ancient beams on the ceiling, slate floor in bathroom and toilets. Quality furniture, personal contemporary decoration. There is view to the garden through 4 large windows in the living room and one in the bedroom. You will hear the birds sing in the bamboo forest!


You have access to the whole duplex, but not to the roof garden.

You can give free phone calls to the States, Australia and Europe (but not to mobile phones).

You will also enjoy free WiFi, a stereo and satelite TV.


I love interacting with my guests, before and during their stay. I live downstairs from the flat and I am available at all times, while respecting your intimacy.


The flat is not adapted for children under 4, because of the open staircase in the duplex.



The flat is strictly non smoking.

Please try to have an eco-friendly attitude by:
- Using the organic cleaning products that we supply.
- Switching off the lights when you are not in a room / not in the flat
- Sorting your trash: the aluminium bin is for not recyclable and organic trash and the big square basket for recyclable items (paper, cardboard and plastic containers, all metal objects). You can leave glass bottles in the kitchen for us to recycle, or you can put them in the grey reclycing tank opposite the building, near the metro entrance.
- Putting down the heating if you open the windows for a period of time.

Security: Please close the windows when you go out.

Cleaning: You don't need to clean the flat. There is a 50€ cleaning fee added to your rent. If you stay more than a week, cleaning can be arranged once a week for a cheaper price.

The apartment is beautiful and spacious, truly a home away from home. Armelle was a reliable and conscientious host who was waiting for me when I arrived. She provided me with an umbrella when the weather got rainy, gave excellent restaurant suggestions, and was responsive in every way. This is where I want to return the next time I go to Paris.

We loved absolutely everything about this apartment and our experience with Armelle! While she too was on an adventure during our stay, she made sure we were well taken care of by her friend Maryline! Apartment is very charming, super comfortable and very well located... Just a few steps from the metro. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer!! Highly recommend and hope to return soon!! Merci beaucoup pour tous!!

Armelle's place is truly a lovely little gem in the heart of Paris. It is beautifully renovated and decorated and it is facing a lush and very quiet private garden in courtyard. The calm and peacefulness is a most welcome contrast with the bustling city. Maryline is Armelle's neighboor. She checked us in as Armelle was out of town. Maryline was very friendly and helpful, and she greeted us with a fresh brioche and delicious mint tea. Given the opportunity we would definitely chose Armelle's place again

Armelle and her husband Camille were wonderful hosts They provided all necessary information and met us with wine and food Apartment is very quiet,looks to a beautiful garden. Area is very residential which exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend this place

I had a very nice stay. Armelle, the host, stayed in contact and left a detailed guide to the apartment and the neighborhood. The apartment is delightful - very spacious,bright and clean. It is on a busy street, but facing the back , so very quiet. It overlooks a courtyard full of greenery. I felt like I was staying in a very luxurious treehouse! I was sorry to leave. One caveat:the steps up to the apartment, and especially to the bedroom downstairs, are quite steep. This wasn't a problem, but could be difficult for someone not used to stairs.

We loved staying at Armelle's apartment and feel like we got to know them even though we didn't meet. First off it is very quiet despite the busy area. You enter next to a storefront but walk through a long , ancient corridor to a back stair leading to a courtyard planted with flowers and bamboo and full of singing birds. The two level apartment is full of artworks and books reflecting Armelle's works In Africa. She also has a cabinet full of CDs crammed with folk and afropop. You can leave windows for great cross ventilation and beautiful light. We made several meals with ingredients from the excellent local markets. Then we found a coffee table describing the work of Camille (Armelle's partner?), a global landscape architect who designed the courtyard as well as works in Paris, Normandy. Greece, NYC and more. His studio is just below the roof garden he designed just outside our window. My wife and I are former Editors of landscape architecture and garden design magazines so we particularly enjoyed this connection. The neighborhood is slightly gritty but safe interesting and convenient. Check out the arcade des arts just blocks away.
Hello Michael, thank you for this beautiful description of our home ! Too bad we didn't meet... Yes, Camille is my partner and I wrote the texts of the book you saw. Glad you appreciated. You can see some of the photos on his website ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) camille muller). Now we are in San Francisco for fun and stopping in NYC on the way back. Camille is starting a new roof garden there. Kind regards. armelle

I'm a globetrotter and also a real parisian girl! My flat is a mixture of these two aspects of my personality: a typical paris place with some beautiful souvenirs from my trips. I love good food and will be very happy to share my good addresses: restaurants, bars and good food sh…
