Imagine living in Paris – for a few days, a week, a month or even longer –
in a little home in the heart of the historic Latin Quarter…
Welcome to My Little Home in Paris!
Imagine your Neighborhood
An enchanting medieval village, dating back to the Romans more than two thousand years ago: Your building from the 1700s is quite modern by comparison!
Nestled in a treed cobblestone courtyard, off an ancient pedestrian passageway, your home is an oasis of calm in the vibrant urban center.
Imagine Waking Up in Paris to the cry of seagulls or the murmur of doves.
Discover wallabies in the Jardin des Plantes, steps from your door.
Picnic under giant palms in Luxembourg Gardens, while enjoying a big-band or jazz concert.
Imagine yourself in the heart of this intellectual and cultural hub, brimming with museums, galleries, booksellers, art cinemas, café terraces…
The mythic rue Mouffetard, a former Via Roma, is your market and shopping street.
Imagine being able to walk everywhere,
with everything you could desire or need, close-by.
Welcome to Your Neighborhood
A safe, lively and friendly village with a bohemian spirit !
Hemingway, a former resident of the quartier, described the neighborhood as ‘shabby but chic’.
Nearly a century later, it hasn’t changed much. It still retains an authentic degree of ‘shabbiness’ –
with just the right amount of ‘chic’ to give it a little sparkle !
Rue Mouffetard, a former Via Roma, is your main street, brimming with café terraces, bakeries, grocers, fish mongers, butchers, florists,
specialty food shops, bookshops, fashion boutiques, gift shops, ice-cream parlors, tea salons, restaurants, jazz clubs, cinemas, theatres,
plus the festive ‘bal musette’ – French traditional accordion music, song and dance.
This long and winding cobblestone road begins at the top at Place de la Contrescarpe – your backyard and playground.
It ends at the bottom at Place St Médard – where the daily market is held.
The gradual descent from top of bottom is about a 6 to 15-minute walk – depending on how often you stop to admire the views along the way!
This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Paris, dating back to the Romans more than 2,000 years ago.
Where the nearby Panthéon stands today, was originally the Roman Forum.
At the end of your street, you will discover the ‘Arènes de Lutèce’, a Roman Amphitheater where gladiators fought and plays were staged.
Today, the Arena offers respite for readers, picnickers and lovers, and is also a recreation area for young budding soccer stars.
The Musée Cluny (Museum of the Middle Ages), just minutes from the flat, features the original thermal baths, the Cluny Abbey, the celebrated ‘Lady & the Unicorn’ Tapestries, and exhibits depicting this rich period in History.
This is but the tip of the iceberg of what your neighborhood has to offer!
We hope you will enjoy exploring and discovering all its riches during your stay.
The Church behind the Panthéon, St Etienne du Mont, dates back to the 6th Century and houses the shrine of Ste Geneviève,
the Patron Saint of Paris.
Until recent years, the Church went unnoticed by Parisians and tourists alike. Only those of the Parish knew of its grace.
In 2011 Woody Allen’s film ‘Midnight in Paris’ catapulted St Etienne du Mont to world fame.
Today, everyone flocks to the iconic steps at midnight to have their picture taken!
The Church deserves the attention; it is one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Paris!
