The SpaceThe apartment is located in the Butte-Stendhal residence in the center of the 20th arrondissement. The apartment has been decorated throughout my life, You will discover a decoration both authentic and refined that will allow you to rest in a warm setting after a long day in the metropolis of Paris.
The apartment is fully equipped, you will find everything that is necessary for your stay in Paris, the sofa bed is also very comfortable and largely allows to accommodate up to 4 travelers in this flat. Guest AccessYou will have access to the whole apartment and parking box. Interaction with GuestsI may not be available to accommodate you in my apartment. If this is the case a friends of mine will come to welcome you. I would of course be at your disposal to give you advice on Paris. The NeighborhoodIn the very heart of the charming Ménilmontant, between the cosmopolitan Belleville and the peaceful and green Père Lachaise, not very far from the musical neighborhood of Oberkampf, this piece of the 20th arrondissement is one of the most quiet and attractive of all Paris! Eh, there is a reason why I chose to live here!
Forget about your heels and put on your baskets: the possibilities of walks are endless here! Gastronomic, at the whim of the Chinese restaurants and West Indian groceries in Belleville; romantic, looking for the late Jim Morrison’s grave or the very missed French Alain Bashung, in the vast, relaxing and flowered Père Lachaise Cemetery, last home of many artists, writers and poets ; bucolic, like you were in the countryside while you’re in Paris in the village of Charonne, near Porte de Bagnolet, etc. You won’t know any more where to look at or to walk in!
A small example of what a day in the area could look like:
-Cozy breakfast at home, because nothing is better than the baguette from the bakery down the street and the pancakes and scrambled eggs cooked by Mister;
-Treasure hunt in the Père Lachaise Cemetery;
-Chinese restaurant in Belleville to eat THE ravioli of Paris (Raviolis Chinois Nord-Est) or Thai in the tiny but nevertheless tasty Krung Thep;
-A quick visit at the Edith Piaf Museum to feel like – according to your preferences – either La Môme or Marion Cotillard;
-A compulsive purchase of vinyls in one of the many records dealers of the neighborhood (ie. L’International Records), home of huge passionates;
-A gastronomic diner like we like them, washed down with a good bottle of wine, at Chatomat;
-Finishing the night in music, either at La Bellevilloise or La Maroquinerie, whether you’re more of a refined rock fan or a wild African rythms one.
The next day, same same but different. This time, Mrs is the pancakes’ chef, and you’ll stay a bit longer on the couch, dreaming about Jim Morrison. Oh, this place will Light Your Fire for sure!
