Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in 14th Montparnasse - Home in Paris
air conditioning, 2 bedrooms (1 king size bed), sleeps 4, internet acces
Beautiful apartment situated near the authentic Rue Daguerre. This typical French market street has not been invaded by big retailers yet (and I hope it never will) and still features real small neighborhood shops and tiny trendy boutiques.
People from all over Paris come to this pedestrian street for their food shopping, enjoy a glass of wine on a terrace of a side-walk café or savor dinner in one of the many restaurants the Rue Daguerre offers.
This bustling street reflects old-time Paris and is the charm of this lively and wonderful neighborhood.
The light and sunny three-room apartment (57m2 or 614 sq ft), is suitable for 4 persons. Situated on the fourth floor of a quiet building from early 20th century. Furnished with beautiful antique furniture and equipped with a mobile air conditioner. Several buses and metros are also nearby and will lead you quickly everywhere in Paris.
Tourist attractions nearby are the Catacombs of Denfert Rochereau, le Jardin du Luxembourg, the Tower of Montparnasse, the Rodin Museum and La Fondation Cartier.
Montparnasse is known as the artists' quarter. In the 1950s, famous people like Miles Davis, Jean-Paul Sartre & Simone de Beauvoir and Ernest Hemingway (among others) spent much of their time here. Well-known places to visit are le Closerie des Lilas, la Coupole or le Dôme.

Thank you for your interest in my profile. I have the Dutch and the French nationality and I came to Paris to work in 1981. With my husband and two children, I have been living in the quarter of Montparnasse for many years now and I still enjoy every minute of it. Now that my children are studying, I have time to take care of the rental and the guests. It is great to receive visitors from all over the world.
Elisabeth purchased this apartment in 2005
Why Elisabeth chose 14th Montparnasse
The building in which the apartment is situated was built by the great-grandfather of my husband in 1911. The great-grandmother said to the great-grandfather: 'But why are you building in the country side?' as there were just farms, cows and chicken around. The building was finished after WWI when the apartment was let to Mr and Mrs Robbe-Grillet. They were the parents of Alain Robbe-Grillet, the famous French novelist and filmmaker. Until recently, his sister Anne-Lise rented the apartment.
What makes this apartment unique
The area around the apartment is quiet and safe but lively at the same time. The Rue Daguerre is, as so many guests mention, an oasis of food shops, restaurants and sidewalk cafes. I live in the same building as the apartment and I am always available to give information and help if needed.
