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.

    Lejligheden er simpelthen så rar at være i og ligger helt perfekt. Næsten kun et stenkast fra Seinen, hvorfra man blot skal spadsere til den næste bro, så er man ved Notre Dame. Mange gode spisesteder samt bager og indkøbsmuligheder helt tæt på. Vi blev informeret om det hele ved ankomsten, som var lige så venlig som stemningen i lejligheden....

    Очень уютная квартира с шикарным расположением - до Елисейских полей 5 минут, рядом много магазинов и ресторанов, метро в 2 шагах.  Все так как описывалось на сайте. С маленьким ребенком недостает только стиральной машины (прачечная недалеко), зато есть посудомойка и быстрый интернет! Хозяин очень заботливо сопровождал подготовку к приезду и помог с инструкциями для удобного размещения в Париже. décembre 2013,...

    Four friends shared this beautiful home for a week. Close to the metro, restaurants, shops and a fabulous park within easy walking distance. Paris, we discovered, is full of hidden treasures and this place is no exception. There is a basement with aquariums full of fish from all over the world close by! The apartment is comfortable and clean and everything you could wish for. Nadia (albeit we did not meet her) answered every question promptly and made sure we were comfortable, A nice bottle of wine, fruit juice and beers were in the fridge waiting for us when we arrived. Sitting on the terrace "enjoying" the moment and pondering our days activities was a wonderful way to spend a few hours every day. We cannot speak highly enough of this apartment - it made Paris our home for the week. Thank you Nadia. Brisbane, Queensland, Australia , March 2013

    Our stay was excellent, exactly what we wanted, a comfortable place that we could call our home for a week, while we toured Paris. Having both and inside and outside space allowed for us to truly feel like we truely lived in Paris. The apartment was large enough for the 4 adults that we were, with space to spare. It was very quiet at night, since it was not on the main strip, but where the locals live. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to pretend they are living in Paris, not just visiting as a tourist.

    A lovely apartment right in the middle of one of the best districts in Paris. The Subway is just a few steps away and it connects the entire city, so getting around is incredibly easy. If you want to walk to see the sights, its 15 minutes to the Eiffel Tower, 15 minutes to Notre Dame and the Louvre, 20 minutes to the Latin Quarter and about the same to Montmartre. The apartment itself is perfect for two. It's slightly off the street and the windows face the courtyard so its incredibly peaceful and quiet at night. The kitchen is fully functional, we were able to cook quite a bit. There's also a washing machine (although no dryer) which cuts down on the amount of clothes you need to bring. The internet is fast and reliable. All in all, a charming place with the best possible location. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Paris!   June 2015, Houston

    I had a good stay in Paris. Location : The property was location at good site and parking (Paid) is just outside of the property. but we found it difficult to search the exact house on 3rd floow as nothing was written on the door of property. There are more 4 house on the 3rd floor. Host need to add the house number in the description. Space : Enough space for 3-4 people / family. a good size bedroom and living room. Enough duvets and bed sheets . kitchen was clean with essential items. THe bathroom door glass is bit transparent . That was the only bad part. Store : There is a store opposite to property to purchase all essential food items. Metro station: About 10 mins walk from property and can reach to central Paris / Eiffel Tower in 20 mins. it is a lively surrounding. You can hear some noice from outside in the living room. It is an excellend property for a family with 1-2 kids with in this budget. Thanks  Nadia.   April 2015,  NEWBURY, UK

    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....

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.

    I stayed recently at this with my mother and sister for four nights. The flat is was very comfortable, had all modern updates and was beautifully furnished and decorated. The beds were very comfortable and the flat was immaculately clean. Nadia communicated very promptly with me and although she was not available when we arrived another host met us and gave us a tour of the place. The flat is in an excellent neighborhood in Paris and is very close to so many of Paris's main attractions. The only downside of this flat was that it was quite noisy at night because it is on a very lively street. Loved the location and the design of the flat. And the great pull out couch! 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. Thanks Nadia!
