This classic French apartment is nestled at the south of the very historical area named Montparnasse, where aspiring international writers such as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and James Joyce converged, looking to find inspiration in the Parisian setting.
It also hosted some of the greatest artists like Picasso, Chagall and Gauguin.
In the neighborhood's zenith, cafés like Le Dôme, La Closerie des Lilas, La Coupole - all of which are still in business - were a lifeline to the struggling artists and writers who populated Montparnasse.
Le Alesia is located in the Alesia area of the always stimulating 14th arrondissement, between Blvd St Jacques, Parc Montsouris and the Jardin du Luxembourg in the Latin Quarter.
The neighborhood is oh so Parisian, with tree lined streets, the local bakery (and amazing restaurant) just across the street, restaurants on every corner, local markets, cafes, etc.
The apartment is 2 floors up (no elevator), an historic building with only 1 apartment per floor.
The space and light is amazing, at almost 700 square feet, and with 8 windows!
The living room is spacious, the convertible sofa becomes a small double.
The kitchen is opened planned and fully equipped.
The bedroom is cozy and looks over a smaller side street, and is also equipped with an exterior roller-shutter to block noise and light, so very conducive to a deep sleep.
The bathroom is very large, equipped with a modern, walk-in shower, toilet, sink and vanity area, and heated towel rack.
The apartment has been recently, completely renovated, and has all the modern amenities, like high-speed WiFi, cable TV, Free Long-Distance phone calls, recessed lighting, but without losing its original charm -- beautiful parquet floors and classic ceiling moldings.
You'll feel artistically and intellectually inspired during your time in this bright, spacious apartment, or while strolling the local markets, shops and cafes!Get the full listing »
