Covered passages in Paris

daadmin
10 novembre 2014

Costruiti all’alba della rivoluzione industriale, prevalentemente in ghisa e vetro e sempre ben illuminati, i passaggi coperti di Parigi permettevano ai passanti di passare da una via all’altra, curiosare tra le vetrine o ristorarsi in un café o una brasserie protetti dalle intemperie, dalla circolazione stradale, dal rumore e dall’inquinamento.
La maggior parte dei passaggi coperti della ville lumière furono costruiti intorno al XIX secolo per offrire una protezione dal freddo e dal caos cittadino a una clientela abbastanza agiata.
Parigi conterà circa 150 gallerie coperte ed esporterà quest’originale modello architettonico in numerose altre città francesi.Questi passaggi che si sviluppano nel mezzo degli edifici prevalentemente della riva destra della Senna (soprattutto nella zona dei Grands Boulevards che ospitava le classi più agiate della società parigina) formano delle gallerie, spesso coperte da un tetto di vetro, caratterizzate da una luminosità particolarissima.
Meno frequentati e affollati in seguito alla rivoluzione architettonica operata da Haussmann e all’avvento dei grandi magazzini, queste oasi di pace sono state rinnovate e rimodellate pur sempre conservando il loro fascino insolito che consente di distrarsi lontano dall’agitazione e dalla frenesia.

    We stayed 3 danish girls for 9 days at the apartment, and we were very satisfied with the place, which looks exactly as in the pictures. We were welcomed by the owner, Éliane, who was very friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. She made a great effort in making us feel at home and she i.a. helped us find a nice flee market. The apartment is clean, the decoration is very comfortable and the equipment fully responded our needs for the stay. The area was perfect for us; not a lot of tourists, 15 min walk from the metro and with a lot of nice cafés and restaurants nearby. We would absolutely recommend the apartment to friends and family.

    The location was great. Very easy to get around the city and to metro stations. Within 10 minutes walking distance to Notre Dame and probably 30 minutes walk to the Louvre along the Seine(took us an hour but we made lots of stops along the way for photos). The studio was small (which is what we expected) but clean. I...

    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

    Nadia was incredibly welcoming! When I had arrived she greeted me, my mother, and aunt with open arms - it was almost as if we were seeing a long lost friend! It was great being able to rent an apartment because it allowed us to really experience Paris on another level. The apartment was clean, located right across the street from a grocery store which allowed us to purchase items for breakfast throughout the week and some snacks. In addition, it was great having so much space available to us. The apartment is charming and the neighbors are wonderful. It is also located down the road from several bus stops and a couple blocks away from several train stations. Nadia was attentive throughout the whole week checking in on us to see how we were doing and any issues that we had, she was quick to respond and provide a solution. I've already told her that I plan on coming back next year and hope to stay in the same apartment! September 2016 Connecticut, US

    A great place to stay, quiet neighborhood but very close to so many fun places. And the nearby Jardine de Plantes is just about 5 minute walk, where you can spend fabulous times with the entire family members. Supermarkets and local restaurants are just seconds away.. The owner is very nice and helpful, we even got very good tips on where to spend beautiful and meaningful times in Paris and its other outer skirt places of interests. I would recommend this place for everyone and especially so if you like to wonder around the River Seine. Enjoy your time everyone...." Januar y. New York , March 2012

    All-in-all we've enjoyed the stay. The flat is a bit smaller than we expected, but still enough for a couple. It's not like anyone comes to Paris to stay at home, right? The location is perfect - mild "tourist" life starts on the next street. It's also a walking distance from Notre Dame and all the sights near the Islands....

    All-in-all we've enjoyed the stay. The flat is a bit smaller than we expected, but still enough for a couple. It's not like anyone comes to Paris to stay at home, right? The location is perfect - mild "tourist" life starts on the next street. It's also a walking distance from Notre Dame and all the sights near the Islands. If you're not fond of walking - the Metro station is about 5 minutes walk from the place. The flat is quite cozy. There's hot water all the time (having read some comments before, I assume that it's a problem in Paris) and the heater works like a marvel - perfect for those, who come during cold weather. Also, a big, cute and exceptionally friendly cat lives in the house. It's very pleasant to meet him on the staircase sometimes and pet for a while. A positive addition to the overall comfort. There were no problems with moving in or out. Nadia and her assistant helped us with everything. October 2015 Kiev, Ukraine
