Charming light-filled apartment tranquil and quiet in the heart of a lively neighborhood full of culture and history. Located on Rue des Boulangers, a historic short cobblestoned street on the Roman hill of Lutece, it is the most convenient of locations.
Steps away are a bank and ATM, bakeries, grocery stores, post office, shops, cafes and restaurants. You can find everything you need within just a few blocks. In addition to stores, three open markets within a 5 minute walk afford shopping for food, flowers and more every day of the week (Rue Moufftard, Place Monge and Place Maubert). Many of the most pretigious universities of Paris are in walking distance as are the beautiful gardens of the Arene de Lutece, Jardin des Plantes and Jardin Luxembourg. There is a gym and pool that offers daily and weekly memberships nearby (Rue Pontoise).
Just down the street is the Boulevard St. Germain and the Seine at the Quai de la Tournelle (location of the famous restaurant Tour D'Argent) with beautiful views of the Ile St. Louis and the back of Notre Dame. It is also a short walk to the Pantheon, the Sorbonne, the Place de la Contrescarpe, the Rue Moufftard, and the Gare de Austerlitz.
With three different bus lines and two different metro lines less than a hundred yards away, all other sites of Paris are easily accessible. Check out 'Rue des Boulangers Paris' on Google maps to see how well located it is!
One reaches the apartment through an entry-coded huge wooden door and passage to our building facing the garden; then up stairs two floors. The apartment is sunny, very quiet and private with large windows in the kitchen, living and bed rooms. Because the view is of the courtyard and trees rather than other buildings, it feels very spacious. The apartment was recently painted and has refinished hardwood floors.
Art work, rugs and drapes have been added since the photos were taken. There are two new twin beds in the bedroom with a small night table between them with a lamp. These two beds can be pushed together to create a king sized bed if desired. The bedroom has a large armoire closet with drawers and a chair with a reading lamp and a large mirror. The living room has a couch that converts to a bed and a dining table with two chairs..
The bathroom has a sink with a mirror and cabinet overhead, shower, heater, and additional closet. There is a separate WC with a window. The kitchen is well equipped.
While the apartment is extremely well located for transportation around the city, with so much of historic Paris's sites,markets, parks, vibrant cafes and restaurants to enjoy nearby, you can have a fabulous time just hanging out in this neighborhood!
Keywords: easy metro access two lines, safe, many restaurants and stores nearby
Amazing location, park-like and tranquil. Great bakeries and restaurants nearby. Love the internet cafe and vegetarian restaurant just ten door down the street.
My father purchased this apartment because he loved France and everything French
When I stay at the apartment I'm always amazed at the unique situation of being in such a vibrant interesting neighborhood close to so many Parisian sites yet being in a sunny quiet garden setting. It is such a pleasure to shop in the markets, make lunch and eat it looking out on the trees and garden. I can quickly get to anywhere in Paris but once I've had enough, I can retreat to this oasis. When I'm recharged, more to do is just steps away.
