We will be staying in this Airbnb PARISIAN 2-bedroom apartment from Nov. 15, 2019 to January 5, 2020. Come stay with us and fall in love with Paris again!
Once a brasserie where coal was bought and sold (a bougnat), this unique 2 bedroom/1 bath flat has a small private garden, spacious living area and everything you need for living the life of a Parisian. Situated in historic Montparnasse (14th arrondissement), you will live in the Paris of Parisians (metro Pernety) with your own private garden to boot. Butcher, grocer, etc. are all right around the corner, along with Metro stations and bus stops taking you easily to the rest of Paris.
A large apartment, by city standards. Weather permitting, the small private garden in rear of apt. and the veranda are a sheer delight. Very well situated within Paris in a lovely part of the 14th that feels nearly village like and away from heavily crowded tourist areas. Lots of good shopping and restaurants all in walking distance.
Super cool and comfy apartment. Great location, and close to transports and wonderful restaurants right around the corner (Japanese, Italian, Thai, middle easter and even one that specializes in rabbot, including a couple of Michelin-star restaurants. Add to that several brasseries, such as the famous La Coupole, and you've got everything you need at your fingertips.
One of the large Paris arrondissements to the south, most visitors would be hard pressed to name highlights of the 14th Arrondissement. Parisians, though, would have no trouble, since nearly 140,000 of them live here and make full use of the shopping streets, the markets, the schools, and the parks.
There's quite a bit for travelers to explore in the 14th, from the Observatory of Paris to the Catacombs. Let's take a virtual walk to twelve highlights. (By the way, this district was also where one of our favorite Paris movies was mainly shot — Agnes Varda's Chloë de 5 à 7.)
> Top things to do in the 14th.
The 14th arrondissement of Paris, and Montparnasse in particular, rose to fame between World Wars I and II when bohemian artists, writers and expatriates flooded the area. Montparnasse was the playground of the lost generation of the 1920s and '30s, as well as the post-WWII artists and expats —and the bohemian spirit lives on today. Right around the corner enjoy shopping at the "boutiques stock", or designer outlet stores on the rue d'Alésia.
The apartment is on the corner of rue de Gergovie and rue du Moulin Vert. The rue Raymond Losserand, at one end of the block, offers all the household resources you'll need: butchers, grocers, bakers, fishmonger, fromagiste, etc., as well as a Monoprix supermarket. There's even a local farmers market on Wednesdays and Sundays. At the other end of the block rue Didot offers its own variety of shops and restaurants, and the rue d'Alésia is lined with boutiques stock, the Paris version of designer outlet stores.
Nearest metro stations are Pernety and Alesia, and several bus lines run through the area.
