My Paris Apartment 2
About the home
This Parisian Apartment has all the modern aspects of a newly refurbished apartment, along with the traditional feel of a Parisian home. Both natural oak untreated floors and the two traditional fireplaces give the apartment a natural charm which guarantees to make your stay here calm and relaxing.

The Paris/Ile de France region
The Paris/Ile de France region
Paris city of lights
The French capital, resplendent in its prestige, architecture and cultural importance, never ceases to appeal and fascinate.
It's difficult, if not impossible, to describe in a few lines a city which enjoys one of the world’s most flattering reputations. Its rich past and flourishing cultural life make Paris one of the world’s most visited cities - nearly 20 million visitors a year.
Ile-de-France boasts numerous open spaces outside Paris for sports such as golf, horse riding, mountain biking (MTB), walking and other outdoors activities. I recommend the forests of Montmorency, Ile d’Adam, Compiegne and Fontainebleau.
The Central Paris / 14th / XIVe area
My apartment is located in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. The 14th arrondisement has a real village feeling and up-and-coming areas in Paris such as Montparnasse, Gaite, Montsouris, rue Daguerre and many interesting tourist spots : Montparnasse (the tower and the cementery where Baudelaire, Jean-Paul Sartre & Simone de Beauvoir and Gainsbourg are buried), the Paris catacumbs, Parc Montsouris).
The most appealing side of the quarter is that it still preserves its traditional French feel with its vibrant street life, its many markets, brasseries, artists ateliers, restaurants, shops and cafes.
The apartment is near lots of local restaurants and food chain supermarkets as well as local street markets and grocery stores.
From my apartment you can walk to Montparnasse in 10 mins and to Luxembourg Gardens or the Latin quarter in 20 mins. From the tower Montparnasse you get to see the roofs of Paris from the 56th floor (just a few floor lower than the Eiffel tower).
To get an idea of the location of the 14th arrondisement please visit this page: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrondissements_de_Paris.
The area around Boulevard Montparnasse used to be a former favourite for the American community. It offers a lively café-restaurant culture and buzzing nightlife. The fourteenth is also home to the Observatoire de Paris that you unfortunately can not visit.
The area of Denfert Rochereau is a popular gathering for demonstrations as it forms the crossroads of the main arteries. Otherwise, it is a calm labyrinth of one way streets.
The 14th is also one of the greenest district of Paris thanks to the beautiful, peaceful "parc de Montsouris", and of course the giant green square inside the "Cite Internationale Universitaire de Paris", which are great places to jog or walk on sunny days.
Place de Catalogne and its landscape views of the Eiffel Tower, theatre and restaurant area of Gaite and nightlife Montparnasse. The theatre and restaurant area of Gaite is worth a visit too, and Alesia for shops and cinemas or Pernety artists hidden streets: rue Thermophiles, rue Olivier Noyer, rue de Moulin Vert...
In the 14eme arrond you also have one of the most famous and old flea markets: the Flea market of Vanves
Typical cycling day
You can take advantage of the latest initiative of the town hall of Paris and rent a bike for the day at only €1.00. A typical ride could start at Alesia to ride on designated bike lanes to the Efiffel tower via Boulevard de Breteuil. Be at the Eiffel tower in 15 mins and ride along the Seine on a traffic free road on Sunday morning, end your journey at Notre Dame, take some pictures and ride up Boulevard de Saint michel to Luxembourgh Gardens in 10 mins, be back home in an extra 10 mins. All that in less than an hour unless you prefer to stop and relax at the sights. I could provide cycling maps and more information about cycling in Paris after a booking. If you are an experienced mountain, road or city bike cyclist and would like to bring your own bike, you could lock it in my cellar. My cellar has a security door so your bicycle would be secure. I am a keen city and MTB cyclist myself.
