Perks for the Parents

This spacious apartment in a characterful part of central Paris is set across 3 floors and sleeps up to 8 plus a young child and a baby. It has plenty of space and would work well for 2 couples traveling with 2 children each - it is not cluttered and there are plenty of areas to offer privacy. The apartment has a quiet courtyard garden. The location is great for exploring Paris’ blockbuster sights, and soaking up the local atmosphere on a family trip.

Why Kids Love it

There are plenty of toys and games to entertain children, plus videos and cable TV. The property is a couple of steps from the city’s Kapla workshop, offering a great space to build and play. Architecture workshops take place for children aged 4 and above several times a week. There are squares and parks a short walk away. Note that due to the stairs and lack of stair gates, the hosts advise the residence may be better for those aged 3 and above.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 days. The apartment is a second floor walk up. There are some steps down to a handful of rooms and the main staircase does not have a rail or banister - younger children may need supervision. There are no stair gates. Babysitting can be arranged with trusted babysitters. There are a lot of great restaurants in the neighborhood. Car rental is not advised with difficulty parking in this central part of the city, and reliable transportation options on the doorstep. No pets.

About the Location

The residence is in a central location, in the 11th arrondissement, 15 minutes’ walk to Place de la Bastille. There is a metro stop, Faidherbe Chaligny, line 8, at the foot of the apartment with direct routes to the Eiffel Tower and Opera. Lines 1 and 9 running to the Louvre are 7 minutes away. It is a diverting, family-friendly neighborhood with plenty to see nearby, including the Titon and Trousseau squares, which have parks, and a public library. Airports are 40 minutes away by taxi and the Gare du Nord is a 25-minute taxi ride away.

Accommodation Details

This 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment is set over 3 floors. It has an open plan kitchen/dining room and cozy living room on the main floor, with 2 bedrooms, each with a full/double bed on the next floor up, plus a toilet. There are 2 further bedrooms down a flight of stairs from the living room, plus a laundry room. One of these bedrooms is the children’s bedroom, with a bunk bed, and the other is the master bedroom with an open bathroom. The apartment has a quiet private courtyard garden.

Style Notes

Danish modern meets old Paris. This architect-remodelled apartment has a leaning towards Danish modern and industrial style, with clean lines and block color, but retains an old Paris feel with some exposed walls and beams throughout. The wood-floored kitchen doubles as a fun play space and the contemporary open bathroom in the master bedroom is a luxury touch.

We are a loving family of 6, 2 teenage girls and 2 boys. We love to go to the South West countryside of France, we love our vacations! Food is our thing, natural wine our passion and we are in the right area of Paris for that.

Roquette, The 11th arrondissement

Quirky shops, hidden galleries and Victor Hugo

Tucked away behind Place de la Bastille, this hip 'bobo' (bourgeouis + bohemian) area is a mix of artists, creative types and families. You’ll find quirky shops and hidden art galleries and Place des Vosges, the most beautiful square in Paris where the children can play in the sand box with Victor Hugo looking over them.
