Bastille is a nice area with no security problem, animated, in the center of Paris with lots of cafes and restaurants (website hidden) is well served by public transport.
Our building is located in a quiet location, facing the Promenade Plantée (good for jogging) and near the Viaduct of Arts
The historic Marais district with the Picasso Museum and the Pompidou and the City Centre Hotel is close to walking.
On the other side of the Seine, you can also walk to the Ile St Louis, Notre Dame and the Sainte Chapelle.
You might also be going to the famous market of Aligre close and De Lyon railways station (see below) is at 10 minutes walk.
A Carrefour Market store is open next 6 days / 7 from 8:30 to 22h.
For those who would like to discover Paris by bicycle there is a Velib station just down the building.
If several bus lines and subway nearby.
The airports Charles de Gaulle or Orly are easy to access by bus or metro / train aswell as our 9 Parisian railway stations.

Other Things to Note
Any other information is available on request. I usually answer quickly.
Smile and good humor and good mutual understanding to make everyone feel at ease.
An absolutely marvellous stay. Bridgette's home is so cozy and has so much history. We loved the area and how easy it was to get around Paris from Bastille. We will definitely be back . She was so knowledgable about Paris and gave us some great advice. Thank you Brigette for the wonderful experience.
I had a wonderful time in Paris staying at Brigitte Marie's apartment. The room and amenities were as described and Brigitte Marie was a great host.
Things I especially enjoyed about the room:
Amenities included everything you need (kettle was great for me since I drink a lot of water).
Lots of tables, chairs, and pillows in your room.
Very quiet (window faces away from road).
The location is arguably one of the best for exploring the city. Very close to Gare de Lyon and the metro but also within walking distance (for me, this is around 3km) to most of the sights in Paris. Having a supermarket right down the road was very nice. Both the neighbourhood and the building felt very safe.
As a host, Brigitte Marie was very knowledgeable about the city and she accommodated my every request. She also gave me a lot of privacy and I felt comfortable exploring the city at my own pace.
Communication was easy since Brigitte Marie speaks excellent English. She was also extremely prepared and attentive during our email exchanges pre-arrival.
10/10 would stay again!
숙소는 굉장히 편안하고 깨끗했습니다. 화장실도 넓고 쾌적해서 좋았습니다. 호스트분께서 영어를 굉장히 잘하셔서 의사소통에 어려움이 없었습니다. 그리고 gare de lyon에서 가까워서 에어프랑스 리무진 버스 이용할때, 프랑스 남부로 여행할때 편리합니다. 호스트분께서 파리 교통, 관광지등 설명 자세히 해주셔서 여행할 때 편했습니다. 숙소 옆에 까르푸 마트가 있어서 좋았고, 집이 외진곳에 있지 않아 위험하지 않았습니다. 또 방문하고 싶습니다. Merci, Brigitte. :)
I had a great time at Brigitte's place. The location was excellent, easy to get around and the room was very comfortable, just as described. Brigitte was very nice and willing to help out. Would definitely recommend. Thank you for having me :)
We had a great time in Brigitte's place. She is a super kind-hearted lady, offering us much help and advice for our trip in Paris. She is very caring and considerate, giving clear instructions to her place and met us in the station in the late evening. Her place is convenient, close to the metro station. The room is clean and comfortable, with artistic decoration. We feel lucky to have met her and stayed in her place. We are very thankful to her for her kindness and hospitality.
Brigitte was a very lovely host. The apartment is very big and comfortable, the room is exactly as shown in the pictures. We had our own bathroom which was really good. The location is very good, it's near everything and there is a supermarket just around the corner. We had a lovely stay.
Unsere Gastgeberin hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen; sie war sehr gastfreundlich und außerordentlich hilfsbereit. Alle Angaben in der Anzeige waren korrekt. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl und wirklich als Freunde des Hauses. Unsere Erwartungen wurden voll erfüllt. Die Unterkunft liegt sehr zentral und verkehrsgünstig (Metro, Bus und RER). Wir hoffen, das gleiche Quartier wieder in Anspruch nehmen zu können.
