PICASSO SLEPT HERE, WHY NOT YOU?

Villa Picasso is an authentic vintage town-house in the same leafy courtyard as Picasso's Montparnasse studio. Four bedrooms, two baths, sleeps eight, five minutes’ walk to the Luxembourg Gardens. Very central with fast, easy access to all the sights via public transport.

A BRIGHT, SPACIOUS DUPLEX HOME

Our family's spacious, high-ceilinged, 2,200-sq-ft duplex positively drips with authentic Parisian patina and charm. Villa Picasso is not a sterile, un-lived-in “rental property”, but a cozy home. It is virtually unchanged since it was built 109 years ago, and is often used for film and...Read more

Additional Location Information

A NEIGHBORHOOD WITH EVERY CONVENIENCE
Villa Picasso is ideally located for visiting all of Paris on foot or by public transport. It is a 5 minute walk to the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens, an easy 20-minute stroll to St-Germain des Près with its renowned cafés and high-end shopping, 25 minutes walk to the historic Latin Quarter, 30 to Notre Dame Cathedral, 30 to the tree-shaded quais of the Seine. And you are surrounded by the inimitable ambiance of Montparnasse, which has long attracted famous artists and writers from around the world.

If you prefer to ride, the house is extraordinarily well served by public transport: It is literally 10 steps from 2 Metro (subway) lines at the Raspail station. The n°6 line will whisk you directly to the Eiffel tower in 7 minutes, to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees in 15 minutes. The n°4 line (with a quick change) takes you to picturesque Pigalle and Montmartre in 30 minutes, or directly to the heart of Saint-Germain des Près in 6 minutes with its famous cafés and high-end shopping; in 8 minutes you will be in the picturesque Latin Quarter, just steps from the Notre Dame Cathedral; and in 30 minutes you'll reach the world's most famous flea market.

A public bus that stops just across the street from the house will take you to the Quai d'Orsay Museum in 10 minutes, to the Louvre Museum in 12 minutes, or to Paris’s most famous department stores in 20. A double-decker sightseeing bus also stops just across the road every 15 minutes. Hop on for a guided tour of Paris. You can hop on or off at any stop. It is the easiest and quickest way to get acquainted with all the sights of the city.

Immediately around the house you will find plenty of food stores, bakeries and supermarkets; literally dozens of restaurants for every taste and pocketbook; as well as museums, theaters, cafés with sidewalk terraces, cinemas and, of course, the studios of famous artists and writers of the past (and present!): not only Picasso but Gauguin, Modigliani, Max Jacob, Henry Miller and many more. You can virtually step into their lives by discovering their favorite neighborhood.

And Montparnasse has not lost its flavor. Many studios and lofts are still occupied by working artists. You will meet them when you shop at the local street markets (not to be missed, Wednesday and Saturday mornings, just around the corner from the house) or in the local supermarket 60 yards from your front door. The house is in a very quiet, safe area. You will also be surrounded by friendly English-speaking neighbors who share our courtyard/garden.

Finally, your host will personally introduce you to his favorite inexpensive local restaurants, where you will be greeted as a friend. He will show you where to buy fresh warm croissants and bread for breakfast, which streets provide the best shopping and where the best café terraces are for sipping a coffee and watching the world go by. The house is 200 yards from a guarded underground parking.

There is no better way to plunge into the life of Paris…as true Parisians live it.
