Live, as the French do, in this beautiful wooden-floored one-bed
apartment, overlooking a quiet street. Recently refurbished, rue de
Saussure offers all modern conveniences, in the heart of a busy, much
sought-after Parisian neighbourhood.
Ideally situated on the border of the 17th and 8th arrondissements,
this apartment is located in a wonderful, residential area. This is
"Les Batignolles", the poets' quarter (Verlaine, Mallarmé)- close to
the business and shopping areas, but still lovely, peaceful and Parisian.
The Rue de Lévis Marché is the place to explore if you are a food
lover. This narrow, pedestrian street houses a charcuterie
specialising in delicacies from Alsace, two huge produce stands, a
poissonnerie, an artisanal boulangerie known for its crusty country
bread, one of the best cheese shops in the city, a place that sells
fresh-ground coffee, a Nicolas wine store and a florist.
In addition, there is also the Marché Biologique des Batignolles by
metro Rome that is open every Saturday morning from 9AM until 2PM.
This is an offshoot of the famous Boulevard Raspail Marché. You'll
find organic produce and dairy goods, wine, prepared salads and
pastries. If you are lucky, you can even try some home-pressed organic
cider and Calvados.
Parc Monceau, one of the most beautiful parks in Paris which was built
in 1769. The park, which features carefully manicured gardens,
pleasing paths, small ponds and streams, and lots of pleasing
sculptures, is very popular with families, affluent joggers and newly
weds having their pictures taken. The park was also the subject of a
painting made famous by Claude Monet called (what else!) "Parc Monceau".
Located a 4 minute walk from metro Villiers, our Parisian Living
apartment is little more than a 5 minute ride to metro Charles de
Gaulle Etoile, where you will find the Champs-Elysées and Arc de
Triomphe. If you take the metro in the opposite direction, or better
yet, take a leisurely stroll, you will be in Montmartre.
Shopping is also all around you. Not only does the rue de Lévis Marche
have many boutiques but you are only a couple of metro stops away from
Galleries Lafayette and Le Printemps, large department stores with
everything under one roof.
Apart from these wonderful conveniences, the apartment is 6 metro
stops from Porte Maillot (where the buses come and go from Ryanair's
Beauvais Airport) and 7 metro stops from Gare du Nord (where the
Eurostar train and RER rail link to Charles de Gaulle is).
