Covered passages in Paris

by admin
Monday November 10th, 2014

They have been developed for only 60 years, from the late seventeenth to mid-nineteenth century.
Each passage has its own characteristics but they all have one thing in common – these are all private roads open to the public or not, depending on the private owners.
Innovative, both in architectural form and by their social role; Systematically lined with shops, the passages are places of great diversity. Mostly inhabited by floor, they mingle luxury shops, toy shops, theaters, bookshops and restaurants.
Among the sixty covered walkways that existed in their day, there remains a dozen, grouped on the right bank. Most are either classified as a historical monument, are registered as a historical monument or protected by the local Master Plan / protection of Paris.

Duration: 3 hours

People: max 4

    Die wirklich charmante, perfekt und liebevoll ausgestattete Altbauwohnung hat eine fantastische Lage. Auch unsere Kinder (13 u.9 Jahre) haben sich in dieser bezaubernden Wohnung gleich zuhause gefühlt. Sie wurde offensichtlich mit viel Liebe zum Detail ausgebaut und eingerichtet. Mehr Parisfeeling geht kaum. Man kann von dort aus alle Sehenswürdigenkeiten entlangt der Seine zu Fuß erkunden. Reichlich kleine Geschäfte, Bäckereien, Bistros...

    Die wirklich charmante, perfekt und liebevoll ausgestattete Altbauwohnung hat eine fantastische Lage. Auch unsere Kinder (13 u.9 Jahre) haben sich in dieser bezaubernden Wohnung gleich zuhause gefühlt. Sie wurde offensichtlich mit viel Liebe zum Detail ausgebaut und eingerichtet. Mehr Parisfeeling geht kaum. Man kann von dort aus alle Sehenswürdigenkeiten entlangt der Seine zu Fuß erkunden. Reichlich kleine Geschäfte, Bäckereien, Bistros etc. sind direkt vor der Haustüre. Nadia spricht hervorragend deutsch. Kommunikation und Schlüsselübergabe funktionierten reibungslos. Die Schlafcouch ist für Kinder kein Problem, für 2 Erwachsene vielleicht nicht unbedingt zu empfehlen. Wir kommen jedenfalls sehr gerne wieder. Dankeschön an Nadia und Marie Pierre!

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have...

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have an 11 month old and were able to have our dinner and wine without disturbing our son sleeping in one of the bedrooms. The outside patio is beautiful and feels very private. The location is great, away from the busy and touristy center with a more local feel. There is a great bakery just down the street, as well as two supermarkets close by. It takes about 20 minutes by metro to go "downtown", with the metro stop (Dausmenil), which is a block or so away. Nadia helped us get a cab to the airport and even paid the $5.00 reservation fee for us, which was very nice of her. All in all, I will never choose a hotel room over an apartment again, and am a big fan of bnb. We hope to return to Paris someday, and would for sure want to stay in Nadia's place again.

    We stayed in the apartment for 3 nights recently and were delighted with our choice of apartment. It is very handily located to the Latin Quarter, the Pantheon, Notre Dame and St Michel.

It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner. Whilst the apartment is rather small it quite suited our needs as we were out and about for most of each day. Would definitely request this apartment for future visits to Paris.

    f i can, i would keep this gem to myself. All the good reviews about this apartment are true and probably better. We (2pax) stayed in this apartment for 10 nights (during the winter) and let me share with you why this place rocks. 1. This place has a living area, a small kitchen and a proper bed room. For 2-3 pax, it is the perfect balance of space/coziness. 2. There is a small balcony with a view of the pantheon. For smokers, its a welcomed spot to have a puff, breathe some fresh air, enjoy the view without smoking out the place. 3. Strong and stable wifi connection. For travelers, we are know just how important this is. 4. Steady and consistent flow of hot water in the shower. Its a life-saver during winter. 5. Simple but functional kitchen for cooking a few easy dishes / microwave food. A coffee machine if you know how to operate it. 6. Tasteful deco and a book shelf of good (website hidden) with lots of channels. Both in the living room and a small one in the bedroom. 8. Safe and quiet place (esp. at night when you need the much-deserved rest). 9. A short 5mins walk to either Cardinal Lemoine or Jussieu station with many cafe, restaurants, boulangeries around. A franprix and carrefour supermarket is also around the corner. 10. Last and most importantly, Nadia and tony are great hosts. We felt bad for Nadia carrying one of our luggage up 5 levels. Thanks so much for making our stay a very memorable one. SEB, HONG KONG-December 2014,

    We have spent a great time here. Generally, the house is clean and comfortable. The dinning room and terrasse are incredibly satisfying. The apartment locates in a safe and convenient area with metro station not far away and restaurants just around the corner.   Pekin, China

    The apartment was great.  Small and charming and very conveniently located.  Nadia always responded promptly to any questions before arrival and met us at the apartment and was inviting and accommodating.   The apartment was small but comfortable for four adults, the building was quiet and well located.   We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment to others.
