Apartment in the Latin Quarter, Paris, France - Wonderful Location In 5th Arr., In The Heart Of The Left Bank, Near Vibrant Rue Mouffetard
This is a charming 3 bedroom apartment in the Quartier Latin, near Pantheon, Jardin du Luxembourg, rue Mouffetard, a vibrant area. Several buses (21, 27, 83, 91, 47) and metro Censier-Daubenton lead quickly everywhere in Paris: Louvre, Opera, Beaubourg, the Marais. It's a very friendly neighbourhood. Most of the people living in the building are good friends of ours. It's a lively place, full of cafes and small restaurants that are open over the weekend. A typical left bank atmosphere but not a posh one, more family like, many students around because of La Sorbonne and top French high schools. The rue Mouffetard (3 mins walk) is a typical French street, with its traditional outdoor fruit and vegetable markets, cheese shops and typical bakeries and groceries. A bustiling farmers’ market runs at Place Monge (5 mins walk) 3 times a week. Saint-Germain, La Seine and Notre-Dame are 15 min walk. A perfect place for enjoying the Parisian way of life of the Left Bank.
Minimum stay 5 NIGHTS.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I felt exceptionally lucky to have found this charming apartment for my family's stay in Paris this March break. The apartment was roomy enough for 5 people, very well equipped and literally steps from rue Mouffetard (a bustling cobblestone street where I could buy fresh croissants every morning, and excellent fish, meat, fruit (and of course cheese!)to prepare meals in the apartment (we did not want to eat out for every meal, and the experience of shopping locally and feeling like we "lived" in Paris was important to us). The apartment felt very much like "home" for the week, and the location was excellent. The owner (Michele) and her daughter (Juliette) were warm and professional. I unhesitatingly recommend this apartment for those who want to feel less like "tourists" in Paris, and more like they are really living there (if only for a short time...!).

It was perfect!
The location was wonderful! Walking distance to the Metro and RER, and to many of the historic Paris sights. And especially to the local shops, bars, and restaurants. Best of all was Juliette's help on our arrival and departure!
Activity and Interests
Every place is close: you can go to the Galeries Lafayette by bus #21 or#27 in 30 mins. Take the bus 47 to go to Beaubourg (20 min) or Le Marais. Bus 83 will lead you to Le Bon Marché and St Germain. Jardin du Luxembourg or Jardin des Plantes are 10 min walk. Take bus 21 to go to the Louvre or metro Censier-Daubenton (5 min walk) (get off at Palais Royal). You will go to Montparnasse by bus 91, and to Les Halles by bus 38. Bus 82 leads to the Tour Eiffel. Bus 87 leads to Montmartre.
It's like a 'village': the street market on the pedestrian rue Mouffetard, 3 min walk, offers all you need: groceries, cheese shops, fruits, vegetables, bakeries, a Greek deli, a delicious Italian and a Chinese take-away, as well as supermarkets and cafés and restaurants. There are several drugstores near the apartment, and banks too, in the rue Claude Bernard. There is a pleasant and wide swimming pool, 10 min walk, if you like to improve your stamina. If you like yoga, you can attend excellent yoga courses at Rasa Yoga (21 rue St Jacques). Jogging is very agreeable in Jardin du Luxembourg. A lot of cinemas are near Odéon-la Sorbonne (10/15 min walk). Plenty of shops are on Bd St Michel and Bd st Germain, or near the beautiful Place St Sulpice (15 min walk through Jardin du Luxembourg). Enjoy a French breakfast or lunch at Le Rostand, opposite Jardin du Luxembourg (in winter, there is a huge fireplace inside the cafe, and you can stay there reading or chatting near the the fire). Actually, you can walk most of the time in a very beautiful area, with ancient buildings, or you can take the buses, which are very frequent. You can cross the Seine with buses 21 or 27 and enjoy the most famous scenery of Paris (Notre-Dame, Ile St Louis, bridges). Anyway, the life is very pleasant in this area and I like it very very much. I spent 10 years in this area, enjoying the friendly and quiet atmosphere (usually, Paris is noisy and busy), walking or using my bike.
