BIENVENUE DANS VOTRE QUARTIER : WELCOME TO YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD!
Bienvenue to ‘la Mouffe,’ as we locals call it, a true Parisian village brimming with café terraces, bakeries, grocers, fish mongers, butchers, florists, specialty food shops, bookshops, fashion boutiques, gift shops, ice-cream parlours, tea salons, restaurants, jazz clubs, cinemas, theatre, and our very own ‘Bal Musette' - French traditional accordion music, song & dance - every Sunday morning at the bottom of rue Mouffetard.
Steeped in culture and history, this vibrant intellectual hub was once home to Hemingway, Joyce, Descartes, Verlaine and Fondane.
The Romans settled here 2000 years ago : The Panthéon (Roman forum), the Cluny Museum (the thermal baths, Unicorn tapestry) , the Arènes de Lutèce (Roman arena) are testimony to Paris’ rich past.
This is the University sector - home of la Sorbonne - where local and international students, families, the young and the not so young live side by side and enjoy the quartier’s numerous bookshops, art house cinemas, cafés and jazz clubs.
You are in the centre of Paris, in the heart of the Latin Quarter, a short walk to all the major universities and libraries, including la Sorbonne, Jussieu, Pierre et Marie Curie, and la Bibliothèque Sainte Geneviève.
The Seine and Notre Dame de Paris and Luxembourg Gardens are a 10-minute stroll from your door.
The Arènes de Lutèce, the Jardin des Plantes (France's largest botanical gardens) and the Natural History Museum, the Cluny Museum, la Sorbonne and the Panthéon are all in your backyard.
The mythical rue Mouffetard (a former via Roma) is your market and shopping street, and Place de la Contrescarpe is your ‘open air living-room’.
Two metro lines (7 and 10) and several buses, within steps of the apartment, connect you easily and rapidly to all of Paris and beyond.
There is a direct line (RER B - Luxembourg Station) to CDG and Orly Airports.
We look forward to meeting you!
