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!

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!

comfortable, quiet and sunny flat

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was easy to get to by Metro (Buzenval stop was closest) and easy to get to Nation station for RER and other metro lines. Great food shopping nearby, especially the big Carrefour at Montreuil, but the local Carrefour City and Franprix were also handy. We found that the neighbourhood was safe, quiet and friendly.

We were very comfortable in the apartment, and had a great small kitchen, very well equipped, with utensils, supplies such as spices, olive oil, etc. We did contribute to the collection, to leave more for the next guests, but it was so nice not to have to buy every little thing!.

It was also great to be able to do laundry when needed, with detergent available, and we had an excellent shower to wash away the dirt at the end of the day, after miles of walking! It felt like home, not a hotel, so really nice.

We travelled as a family of 4 with 2 teenagers, who appreciated the wifi, and they really liked the space and their beds.

Thank you, Lili, Herbert and Gregory for your wonderful hospitality.

Frances and Joe

Owner's Response: To Frances, Joe, Mathew and Amelia - Thank you for your review: it makes us so happy to know that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. I was particularly touched that you noticed our desire that our apartment is a place of life as at home, but with its typical touch of Paris, a special home-away-from-home. As you can see with the decoration and furnishings coming from our old Parisian family. ! As you could discover with the equipped kitchen and with all its usual ingredients, supplies as spices so that you may cook typical food from France: like "boeuf bourguignon", for example.! Yes, sure, we don’t want our flat to be as an hotel ! As I told you, my apartment is above all arranged so that personally we can come to see our children and grandchildren. Therefore, we wanted it to be comfortable and we use to do regular work to improve comfort -the bathroom has been renovated last year-. And when we don’t stay in Paris, we are happy to be able to allow other people to use it. That is why we maintain correct prices in relation to its size, location in Paris and comfort. Then, we know that we will have the pleasure to welcome another time, another year, people who have already come to us. As you understood it, we prefer to build good relationships of trust, even friendship, between people and us. Of course, we are very happy to read your so encouraging comments. Thank you ! Of course, it will be a great pleasure to welcome you again to us ! (I send also to Gregory a copy of your message which is so encouraging for him. Thank you). . A bientôt, chez nous, -chez vous-, à Paris ! Avec toutes nos amitiés ! Lili, Hubert et Gregory

Appartement spacieux

  • 4 of 5

Bien que situé dans un quartier pas très joli de Paris, l'appartement est bien desservi (métro, bus, supermarché,...). Il est spacieux et chaleureux pour une famille avec 3 enfants. L’accueil du gérant, le suivi de la propriétaire et l'aide du concierge étaient tous très bien.

Le ménage par contre n’était pas parfait mais quand même avec un minimum acceptable.

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions pour votre appréciation. Nous sommes toujours attentifs aux recommandations. Nous sommes heureux que vous ayez apprécié le confort de notre appartement spacieux pour une famille avec 3 enfants ainsi que les nombreuses facilités aux alentours. Notre quartier, le 20ème arrondissement, situé à l’Est de Paris (-qui est à l’opposé du 15ème arrondissement, quartier à l'Ouest de Paris où vous nous avez dit résider–), n’est certes pas la partie de Paris qui est la plus visitée mais on dit de notre quartier être le quartier du "Paris en ébullition", un quartier parisien où l'on vit. Ce quartier dit "le Paris de l’avenir " est effectivement un quartier jeune, vivant, multiethnique qui est en pleine évolution. Nous vous incitons donc à venir découvrir l'histoire et la richesse de ce quartier qui possède de nombreux créateurs, artistes et galeristes. Notre porte vous est ouverte pour d’autres découvertes ! A bientôt !

Naturellement, c'est avec plaisir que nous vous accueillerons tous les 4 une autre fois, si vous avez l'occasion de revenir dans la capitale. A très bientôt, peut-être ! Lili et Grégory

A nice place with all you need

  • 3 of 5

Its a very practical flat. Elevator from the celler where we parked our car, to the fift floor. Everything works, from the new bathroom to the kitchen. There is a nice balcony to be reached from the parlour as from the bedroom.

Most of the things you need is there.

The nearest Metro station is only a five minutes walk away, and there are shops and restaurants close by.

We had a good week

Lene and Søren
