I bought this place because it is incredibly bright. Situated on the 8th floor we have a great view. (often in Paris streets are narrow and the view is limited). From the window, we see the Stade Charlety, and 4 stations away with the tramway we are in the wonderful Parc de Monsouris. It is not in the very center of Paris but 6 minutes away to 2 metro stations, bus no 47 that take you to the center in 20 minutes.
In 2001, Robert, my husband and I moved to the Washington Area, where he got a position. Until March 2011 we rented it to an elderly lady. Summer 2011 we renovated completely and furnished it with modern appliances and furniture. As we are still working in Maryland, it is free a great part of the years. As a French teacher, I am friendly with many of my students and I decided to share my place with them when they come to Paris. I provide them with my best tips and information to make their visits more enjoyable and stress free. I love meeting new people and help them with the French language and culture.
I love the fresh market on avenue d’Italie, (7 mns walk), on Thursdays and Sundays morning. Also we have several supermarkets and numerous restaurants all all around.
Also, when I am in Paris, I am very often alone and I don’t have any problem to come home late at night from the Maison Blanche metro station.
On Sundays morning, I love to take a walk to the François Mitterand bibliotheque’s area. There, I go to the MK2 movies theather. There are many large, wonderful and confortable theaters. The matinee tickets are only 6 Euros, then I go to have lunch around or walk along the Seine. When the weather is not good, I take the newest metro line number 14, and in a few minutes I am in Paris center, or I can stop at Bercy and have lunch in the “Bercy Village” area, not well known by tourists.
Direct tramway to Porte de Versailles and Stade Charlety.
Great farmer market on Thursdays and Sundays. Grocery stores open on Sundays. Biggest movie theater in Paris, MK2 Bibliotheque, buses 62 and 64 in less than 10 minutes.
