Chic 1 Bedroom Apartment on the 2nd Floor in Paris
Description from the owner
Central 35 m² (380ft²) one bedroom apartment, on 2nd floor of 1914 building. Newly renovated and on a quiet courtyard, in idyllically and artistic Parisian living quarters right next to the Parc Montsouris and Cité Universitaire Internationale, with century-old chimney and wooden parquet floors.
Ideal for a couple or two and small families, with a hosting capacity of 4-5 people (up to 2 or 3 can sleep on the living room double and single bed sofas). You would have the apartment to yourselves. Very conveniently located with abundant transportation in all directions (main tourist spots in 15mn)
Very safe and non touristy neighborhood, which is both peaceful and green, as well as convenient and vibrant by day and night (Porte d'Orléans & Alésia subways), with many charming shopping and dining facilities.
Includes a large living space, bedroom (big double-bed), modern and fully equipped kitchen (dish-washer, laundry washer & dryer, freezer, fridge, oven, microwave), bathroom & separate toilet. AC is unnecessary (thick windows and walls keep you cool), yet a fan is available if you want it. Non-smokers please. Calm and clean pets may be accepted upon discussion.
Direct commute to/from Paris AIRPORTS Charles the Gaulle (30-40 min) or Orly (20 min), and TRAIN STATIONS (Montparnasse & Gare du Nord/EuroStar). Most main tourist attractions 10-20 mins away.
- Metro line 4: reachable from 2 stations (Porte d'Orléans or Alésia, 5 min walk). Gets you quickly to Montparnasse, Gare de l'Est, and other lines, including the scenic line 6 to the Eiffel Tower.
- RER B train (fast subway line): cross the parc (diagonally, 5mn) to the Cité Universitaire station, or grab a bus to Denfert-Rochereau. This connects you directly to both Paris airports, train stations, and to central places like Notre-Dame, Chatelet (10 min), Auber (Grands Magasins 'Galeries Lafayette' & Opera), Etoile (Champs Elysées & Arc de Triomphe) or Gare de Lyon.

Best organization of a last minute instant booking I've ever experienced! Check-in & out were very flexible and smooth, thanks to the hosts' availability and accommodating efforts. Their apartment is very authentic and comfortable.
The neighborhood felt extremely safe and peaceful, including a gorgeous lake view at the next-door park, as well as numerous stores & restaurants just a block away (we recommend the Michelin one at the street corner). Several particularly convenient metro & bus lines as well as good parking which was particularly important for us... we will come again!
