I may not be available to welcome you in my apartment. If this is the case a friend of mine will come to greet you. I would be at your disposal to give you advice on Paris.
In the very heart of the charming MÃ©nilmontant, between the cosmopolitan Belleville and the peaceful and green PÃ¨re Lachaise, not very far from the musical neighborhood of Oberkampf, this piece of the 20th arrondissement is one of the most quiet and attractive of all Paris! Eh, there is a reason why I chose to live here!
Forget about your heels and put on your baskets: the possibilities of walks are endless here! Gastronomic, at the whim of the Chinese restaurants and West Indian groceries in Belleville; romantic, looking for the late Jim Morrisonâ€™s grave or the very missed French Alain Bashung, in the vast, relaxing and flowered PÃ¨re Lachaise Cemetery, last home of many artists, writers and poets ; bucolic, like you were in the countryside while youâ€™re in Paris in the village of Charonne, near Porte de Bagnolet, etc. You wonâ€™t know any more where to look at or to walk in!
A small example of what a day in the area could look like:
-Cozy breakfast at home, because nothing is better than the baguette from the bakery down the street and the pancakes and scrambled eggs cooked by Mister;
-Treasure hunt in the PÃ¨re Lachaise Cemetery;
-Chinese restaurant in Belleville to eat THE ravioli of Paris (Raviolis Chinois Nord-Est) or Thai in the tiny but nevertheless tasty Krung Thep;
-A quick visit at the Edith Piaf Museum to feel like â€“ according to your preferences â€“ either La MÃ´me or Marion Cotillard;
-A compulsive purchase of vinyls in one of the many records dealers of the neighborhood (ie. Lâ€™International Records), home of huge passionates;
-A gastronomic diner like we like them, washed down with a good bottle of wine, at Chatomat;
-Finishing the night in music, either at La Bellevilloise or La Maroquinerie, whether youâ€™re more of a refined rock fan or a wild African rythms one.
The next day, same same but different. This time, Mrs is the pancakesâ€™ chef, and youâ€™ll stay a bit longer on the couch, dreaming about Jim Morrison. Oh, this place will Light Your Fire for sure!
I recommend you take a VTC or taxi from the airport to the apartment.
It is easily accessible by metro from Gambetta station, line 3 which goes to Gare Saint Lazare, RÃ©publique and Opera.
Many buses in front of the accommodation as well with line 61 of the Gare d'Austerlitz and Gare de Lyon.
