How truly "French" is this small window seat, casement windows and scroll work iron gate overlooking the neighbors roof.
The living and dining room spaces are fairly small and spare, but certainly comfortable looking.
I always love a curtained room entry and this one does a nice job of separating the surprisingly large (by European standards) kitchen from the main living area.
The Pièce de résistance of the apartment is undoubtedly the jewel box of a master bedroom. The jaunty yellow walls with matching yellow bedding and yellow and white Toile fabric coverlet is really breathtaking. The queen size bed clearly takes up nearly all the space, but the efficient closets, mirrored walls and shelves behind the bed really enhance the space.
Note the wall angle by the window - clearly, this is the top floor of a classic Mansard roof building.
The bathroom in the Master bedroom includes a sink and bathtub with shower.
The WC is located off of the front entry and is papered in a fabulous yellow and gold stripe. Even the vanity door fronts are striped.
The rent for this cute little apartment ranges from 850 to 975 Euros per week, depending on how many people are staying. There are also discounts for length of stay, with stays ranging from four days to three months. As anyone knows, staying in an apartment and living as the locals do is truly the best way to get to know a place. And I do think this little apartment in the Bastille is one to keep note of for future trips to my favorite city!

And this final image is by photographer Anne Henning. I have this framed photograph that is printed on watercolor paper in my collection - purchased at an auction a few years ago. I just love it.
