Our flat is located in a calm neighborhood ('Commerce'), and is well connected with public transportation (metro 6, 8, 10, 12 + Velib). 25 min walk away from the Eiffel tower.
Located on the 8th floor with elevator, we have a nice view over Paris.
Welcome to our flat, in the typical, residential 15th arrondissement of Paris. Esther and I have been living here for the past 4 years, and we really love the place and the neighborhood.
Our flat is located on the 8th floor (with elevator) of the building, which means we have a great view over Paris from all of our windows (most Parisian buildings are capped at 6 stories by city planning) and from our terrace. This exlpains why the flat is very sunny.
The apartment has 2 rooms, a dining room, an independent kitchen, separate restrooms, bathroom and a terrace. The master bedroom has a large, queen size bed (for 2). The 2nd bedroom has a large convertible couch in it (for 2) - we use it as a living room. The kitchen is fully equipped and we have all the modern appliances (washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, nespresso...) you can wish for.
Finally, one of the nicest perks of our flat is its nice terrace, with trees, flowers and a superb view of Paris rooftops. There is also a small table and chairs for 2 outside, which you can use for your various meals.
The neighborhood is family-friendly, with a typical parisian 'way of life' feel - you are within a 5 minute walk from fashion boutiques and fresh food shops (boucheries, boulangeries, fromageries etc...) alike. There are several supermarkets within 5 minutes walking distance (including one that is open on sundays). Two of the most famous shopping streets in Paris are nearby - the 'rue du Commerce' (2 minute walk) and the 'rue Lecourbe' (5 minute walk). Within that same 5 min walking range you will also find numerous restaurants, which I'll be glad to recommend for you, and local parks (square Saint Lambert).
In terms of connectivity to all the main touristic attractions of the City : the neighborhood is extremely well connected - it probably explains why the 15th is the most populated arrondissement in Paris. The Champ de Mars is 10 min walk away, the Eiffel tower 25 min walk away (15 minutes with the metro), Montparnasse's night life is 20 min walk away. With access to metro lines 6, 8, 10 and 12 and a Velib station right in front of our building, you are less than 20 minutes away from the Trocadéro (line 6), the Concorde (line 8), the Madeleine (line 8), Champs Elyséees (line 6), Invalides (line 8), the Pantheon (line 10), Saint Germain (line 12), Saint Sulpice (line 12) and so on...
For guests with cars : from our flat it's much easier to walk and use the metro than to use a car. There is a parking lot nearby (26 Villa Croix Nivert), reasonably priced if you book ahead, where you can leave your car during the length of your stay. If you stay at our place in July or August, you can also easily park on the street.
We hope to welcome you soon at our place !
