*** THE AREA
The apartment is located in a quiet and residential neighborhood, with markets, cafes, butcher, baker, and supermarket within a block or two.
Also, you are only about ten minutes' walk from the theaters, restaurants, and nightlife of the Montparnasse area.
In the first three decades of the 20th century, Montparnasse was a thriving artistic and literary centre. Many modern painters and sculptors, new novelists and poets, the great and the young were drawn to this area. Its ateliers, conviviality and renewed Bohemian lifestyle made it a magnet for genius, some of them French but many of them foreigners.
It is also 10 minutes away by metro from St Germain and Notre Dame area.
Alésia is now a sought-after residential district where real estate prices are rising, given the proximity of Montsouris park, Gare Montparnasse train station, a whole host of stores. The district is lively and very popular with families and young people. Another interesting feature of Alésia is its architectural diversity: Haussmann-style buildings, single-family residences, post-war architecture, plaster facades, etc. Rue du Lunain is one of the only streets in Paris to have nothing but Haussmann-style buildings. The district also has a large number of artists' workshops. The famous painter Édouard Manet even depicted Alésia in his 1870 painting 'Effet de neige à Petit-Montrouge' (Effect of Snow on Petit-Montrouge).
