This stunning loft is situated in the renowned, lively and colourful pedestrian district of “Montorgueil-Saint-Denis”, amongt Paris’ most historical areas.
Rue Saint-Denis is one of the oldest streets in Paris, its route being first laid out in the 1st century by the Romans and offers you a multitude of attractions and curiosities just at hand.
This area also is also home to the stunning classified heritage monument, 142 Rue Saint Denis, the house built for Claude Aubry (seen from the living room of this apartment). In front of number 142, there is another amazing classified construction, a 16th century fountain built into the corner of Rue St Denis and Rue Grenetta called “La Fontaine de la Reine”.
Restaurants, markets, boutiques, shops of all types, the colors and aromas are reminiscent of countryside villages.
You’ll also find lots of historical and cultural monuments, you will be spoiled by choice and it is for all purses too.
The atmosphere of this pedestrianized and quaint district is soft and welcoming and at the same time energetic and lively with all its trendy and designer stalls.
You can for example begin your day savoring a coffee in the numerous sunny coffee terraces, sit in the Rue Montorgueil, then linger in front of the large undulating glass canopy of the «Forum des Halles», before sitting smug with a street show in the Centre Beaubourg that also hosts inside numerous interesting exhibitions.
You can also pass time wandering under the amazing covered galleries «Passage du Grand Cerf» or «Passage de la Galerie Vivienne» (just at the foot of the building) and that ends up to the magnificent «Place des Victoires».
TO VISIT NEARBY
- THE STREET OF MONTORGUEIL: this pedestrianized and trendy street is the shopping heart of the district, and some of it’s shops are amongst the oldest of Paris. For example, at number 38, there is « L’escargot Montorgueil», the favorite 20th century kitchen of Sacha Guitry, Proust, Dali… and the ceiling of the entrance was Sarah Bernhardt’s dining room, the one she gave to the restaurant before her death !

Now, it has become one of the most vibrant and trendy areas of the capital, there is an enormous shopping center that will please all you shoppers and especially those who seek rare avant-garde /vintage pieces! There are also 2 theaters and the amazing fountain created by one of Paris’ most famous artists, Auguste Rodin.

- GARDEN OF TUILERIES: only 15mn by foot from the flat, this true ‘green lung’ is part of the most emblematic places of the capital. Besides, it is part of the Historical Axis or ‘Voie Royale’, an axis of roads and a series of monuments (Triumphal Arch, Champs-Elysées and the Louvre) placed along the axis that runs from the centre of Paris out beyond the city to the west. A perfect way to discover emblematic Parisian monuments, profit by wandering around this royal garden and window shop on the most beautiful Avenue of the word.
- HÔTEL DE VILLE: this is a majestic building, with a turbulent past (its square used to be the site for guillotine executions) that is only 7 mins away by foot. Nowadays, the Hôtel de Ville is the head of the municipal council. Its fabulous square is mainly a place where main events are organized by the municipality: in winter, it is transformed into a huge ice rink with merry-go-rounds; during the international tennis tournaments, a huge screen transmits live matches; as well as wonderful garden exhibitions. There are more than 200 sculptures along each side of Hotel de Ville building to be admired; created by one of Paris’ most famous artists, Auguste Rodin.

The ‘Passage du Grand Cerf’ created in 1825 is part of Paris’ most important ones, has the highest canopy. Meanwhile the ‘Galerie Vivienne’, created in 1823 is the most emblematic with its mosaic tiled floors and brass lights. You can admire the history, cast iron gates, marble pillars, ornate clocks and its chic prêt à porter boutiques such as Jean Paul Gaultier.
It might be good to have a fan for people to use in the summer.
I would definitely recommend this flat - is one of the most comfortable ones I have stayed in.
