Welcome to this quiet, cozy, 35-square-meter, newly renovated one bedroom apartment at the foot of the famous Mouffetard in the Latin Quarter. Walk in and it feels like a funky jazz downbeat.
This inviting apartment is on the second floor of a typical 1869 Haussmann building (with elevator). It's ideal for two, not so much for kids under 12. The apartment has all the essentials: cable, flat-screen TV, WiFi, CD/Blue Ray player, DVD player, landline phone (free calls to US & Canada), washing machine, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, and Queen bed. It also has a few unexpected extras: Tempur-Pedic mattress, custom furniture, original art, an ottoman that converts to a single bed, a convection microwave oven, an iPod dock, a vintage wardrobe trunk to use, Paris-themed books and DVDs, a folding shopping cart, plenty of hot water, and a quirky doorbell chime.
As for the neighborhood: The charming village-like rue Mouffetard has always been well known for its open-air market-with some shops claiming to date back to the sixteenth century. Even Hemmingway loved to shop here! In A Moveable Feast he called it, "That wonderful crowded market street", The movies "Amelie", "Julie & Julia", and even the acclaimed 1993 French film Three Colors: Blue all filmed here. Along the cobble-stoned Mouffetard you'll find the quintessential butcher, baker, candlestick-maker, and many others-as well as atmosphere galore!
This rather out-of-focus YouTube link captures it all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plSq3mV-XEg. The Sorbonne, Arènes de Lutèce, the Jardin des Plantes, the Panthéon, and the churches of Saint Médard and Saint-Étienne-du-Mont are also close by. Public transportation is just steps outside the front door and the metro's two blocks away. Enjoy!

This apartment is located very near the famous rue Mouffetard, a picturesque and typical Paris street, only a few minutes walk to Pantheon and the Jardin du Luxembourg. Sloping down it is packed with grocery shops, butchers, restaurant and cafes. You can discover old signboards, small squares and passages, a little fountain of Marie de Medicis (17th century) at the corner of the rue du Pot-de-Fer. The lower part of the Mouff', with its permanent morning market turns the street into a vibrant, colored and vivid animation. Open every day except Monday, the Mouffetard market offers a dizzying array of delicious seasonal fruit, vegetable and cheeses. You'll find many other French specialties and even some stalls carrying cloths and other items. The vendors are always cheery, enthusiastic and keen to help you choose the product that suits your tastes best. This is Hemingway's favorite neighborhood in Paris.
Whether you are visiting Paris for the culture, for the shops, or for the food (or all three!), our apartment on rue monge is the perfect place for beginning and ending each day's adventures.
