In surroundings :

In the steps of the Revolution: -----As you walk around the local area, you may see a game of pétanque at the Place de la Nation. Take a look at the imposing bronze statue of 1899 « Le triomphe de la République ». In 1660, Place de la Nation was called Place du Trône to commemorate the entry into Paris of Louis XIV and Marie-Thérèse of Austria, his new wife. Then, it became Place du Trône Renversé at the time of the Revolution. It became Place de la Nation on July 14, 1880, at the introduction of the first national festival. It’s one of the greatest Places in Paris built as a symbol of Nation or Republic, like Place de la Bastille which is only about 30mn on foot from it, or Place de la République, only about 40mn on foot. Have a good walk following in the steps of the Revolution !

Unusual stroll: -----Here’s a suggestion for an unusual stroll, in a peaceful cemetery ! Close to the apartment, at the end of the street, this picturesque Pere Lachaise Cemetery is a 44ha of criss-crossed treelined paths, with flowering shrubs and stone staircases. Père de La Chaise, (Louis XIV’s confessor), lived here before this area became the first secular cemetery in Paris, dating back to 1804. There are numerous sculptures and recumbent statues from the past two centuries of France's (and other countries) most famous artists, politicians, scientists, etc, eg. Apollinaire, Molière, Balzac, Chopin, Sarah Bernhardt, Modigliani, Champollion, Piaf, Wilde … and the well known Mur des Fusillés de la Commune (1871), called ' Mur des Fédérés ', with these heads and busts standing out in the light of the setting sun, a poignant, striking reminder of what happened long ago. Indeed, they are all worth seeing ! It's like visiting a huge open air museum!

Have fun the Parisian way !: -----Within easy reach of the apartment, you have either the chic or cheap shopping at the Printemps Nation Store or in the rue d’Avron. You also have a real choice of attractions, sports and activities for any age, eg. swimming (open air in summer), cycle hire or horse riding. *) Go into the famous Bois de Vincennes with its Zoo, its Tropical Aquarium, its Parc Floral de Paris for children’ s activities,(nature centre, theatre), or row a small boat on the lake. *) Run in Buttes-Chaumont, the best known park with its grotto, lake, waterfall & suspension bridge, …. *) You can spend some memorable moments in the Cité des Sciences, going from one interactive exhibition to the next, and with a 3D film, it would be a great way to round off your visit. *) Or go by train from RER Nation straight to Disneyland to have fun in the Park & studio. *) And why not, have a break from culture, on Sunday afternoons, by joining the special circuit for Rollerblades. Have fun the Parisian way !

About Lili

I'm French. I was born in Paris and I lived there for 60 years. Now I am retired and I live in the countryside. I am a regular visitor to Paris to see my family a few days.

Why Lili chose 20th Menilmontant

This flat has been in the family for two generations. This apartment is also our family base when we are in Paris. We love it. We left our family furniture in the apartment. We want enough comfort to welcome us, when we come to see our family in Paris, and also enough comfort to welcome our guests during their stay here. So, be welcome to us!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

My parents rented this apartment for ten days when they visited me in Paris and they loved it. The apartment is spacious, full of light and in a very pleasant neighborhood. There are shops and restaurants everywhere and the subway is just one block away.

It is a great place to spend some time in Paris, close to the center yet away from the crowds. I strongly recommend it.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased to ear from you as we were very pleased to meet you. It was with pleasure that we were able to let your parents stay in our apartment and especially only a few subway stops from yours. My greatest wish was that you could spend good times together in Paris. So, if your parents would like to come back and stay there again, they will be very welcome.

Owner's Response: Welcome to us for a next time ! THANK YOU for your review. I am so pleased to know that our apartment meets the expectations of all your family. When coming from Israel, I hope that all your family, each one of you and of your three children, has also loved spending few time in Paris. There is so much to see. The visit of Paris during only few days might be tiring. So, don't hesitate to contact us again if you need more time for walks and discoveries of monuments, museums and other districts of our big City of Lights. In our apartment, you will feel as at home and, this time, the wifi will be here! Thanks again for your comment.

Bel appartement calme au centre de Paris

J'ai aimé le séjour dans cet appartement calme et bien situé. Les commerces et les restaurants sont à proximité (en bas de l'immeuble). Le séjour est grand et la cuisine bien équipée. 2 lignes de métro sont à 5 minutes à pied :Avron (ligne 2) et Buzenval (ligne 9) et 3 autres à 10 minutes à pied : Nation (RER A et ligne 1 et 6) Nous vous remercions pour votre accueil !

Owner's Response: Pour nous, c'était un grand plaisir de pouvoir vous proposer notre appartement pour ce long séjour de 2 semaines. Vous l'appréciez pour son confort et pour sa situation près des commerces et supermarchés. Vous aimez aussi le grand choix des lignes de métro proches et avec un accès facile pour aller aux lieux touristiques divers et aux gares et aéroports. Vous dites que votre séjour vous a plu. Donc je vous réponds : "à très bientôt ! et avec grande joie!" Für uns war es eine große Freude, Ihnen unsere Wohnung für den langeren Aufenthalt von 2 Wochen. Sie genießen es für seinen Komfort und wegen seiner Lage in der Nähe von Geschäften und Supermärkten. Sie mochte auch die Vielzahl von U-Bahn-Linien in der Nähe, um einfachen Zugang zu verschiedenen touristischen Orten und Bahnhöfen und Flughäfen zu gehen gern. Sie sagen, dass Sie Ihren Aufenthalt genossen. Also antworte ich auf Sie: "in sehr bald! Und mit großer Freude!" For us it was a great pleasure to offer you our apartment for this long stay of 2 weeks. You appreciated for its comfort and its location with shops. You also liked the large variety of subway lines close to easy access to go to various tourist places and train stations and airports. You say that you enjoyed your stay. So I answer : "See you again very soon and with great pleasure!"

Fabulous Parisian Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely perfect for a family holiday to Paris. It is quiet and comfortable, easy to get to and around from. We thought that it is in a great location. This apartment is not situated in a big touristy area and it is all the better for it. We felt that we had a real taste of living as a Parisian family would live. There is a lovely Play Park close by which our children really enjoyed. The local bakery was excellent as was the fantastic produce market that is in the square very nearby on a Sunday. Ample shopping around in the local area. It has all the facilities that you would require on holiday. We felt safe, especially with the locked entry system and security blinds that we could lower on the the apartment windows. We would very happily stay here again and were actually congratulating ourselves on having the good sense to book this for our stay in Paris. The owner is very helpful and provides great information. All very well done, thanks.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed these few days living as real Parisians! By choosing our apartment, you also chose the charm of this picturesque old district, with its narrow streets, small houses and popular markets of a weekend and that has kept traces of its history, its sense of simplicity, authenticity, humanity and family so often appreciated, offering to the new artists, architects and artisans the opportunity to explain themselves in living in this place with a so well appropriated true atmosphere. I'm so happy that you were sensitive to our efforts to welcome you at best in our apartment where I preferred to extend the atmosphere of the neighborhood, by keeping an atmosphere of the 30s years, using the furniture of my family for its arrangement but with modern comforts required for everyday life, today. Your sensitivity touched me. So I say to you: "Thanks and you are always Welcome !" and "See you very soon!"

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that you spent happy days during the beginning of this New Year 2011 in Paris and in our apartment. I'm glad you enjoyed the proximity to public transport, ease of use Internet in cafes nearby and quality of breads and organic products from the food shop, located on the ground floor of our building and opened 7 / 7 days. We will be always happy to welcome you for other events. Our best wishes for all this New Year 2011 !

This apartments was perfect for our family of five (2 adults and 3 children). We loved the fact that it was so close to the metro line and located above a bio mart and close to so many nice little restaurant and shops. The apartment was very clean and well stock and so comfortable. Perfect for our needs. Our stay in Paris was lovely. Thank you!

This quiet, large apartment with a sunny balcony is located in the 20th district, near the 11th and 12th districts. It's in the centre of the historical 'Nation' near the famous 'Père Lachaise'. The building stands in a kind of village, with its typical low houses and narrow little paved streets. Live as a Parisian! Leave your car parked in the private space in the basement of the building and nearby, take one of the 5 metro RER lines : Buzenval or Maraichers stations at 250m or at 10mn on foot, it's easy to reach one of these stations: 'Nation, Avron or Porte de Vincennes'. It's so easy to go to airports, quick and direct to major tourist attractions or train stations with 5 buses & 5 metro RER lines nearby. It takes 13 minutes to cross Paris completely to Etoile Champs-Elysees and 33mn straight to EuroDisneyland. Also, it's easy to go to the Bastille, Marais, Republique, Montmartre, Halles, Hotel de Ville, Ile de la Cité, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the River Seine and the Eiffel Tower, the famous Louvre, Orsay, Pompidou Museums or Vincennes Castel ... And have a good time!

Other Activities: Monuments, Museums, Sightseeing bus/cruise, Concerts, Shows, Cabarets, Theatres, Art galleries, Antiques, Luxury shops, specialist & flea market.

Golf: -----Please ask the owner for golf details.
