About the neighbourhood
The apartment is located in the center of Paris, in the best part of the Marais. It's right near the intersection of the famous Rue Charlot and Rue de Bretagne, and right there is the well-known Marche des Enfants Rouges, the oldest open air market in Paris. Rue de Bretagne is a 'market street', with bakeries, butcher shops, traiteurs, cafes, bistrots, and more, all within a stone's throw. What's more, there are two supermarkets right there, and then another all-organic supermarket nearby as well. For seeing the sites, you can easily walk to many of them -- even Notre Dame is only about a 15 minute walk! And then there are several Metro stations, as well as bus stops, right nearby to take you to everything else.
Getting around
Being in the center of Paris, you can easily walk to many sites. Notre Dame, for example, is just 15 min walk. The Picasso Museum is just around the corner, 5 min walk. The Pompidou Center is also right nearby, about 7 min walk. For things that are further away, there are no less than 8 Metro stations, all within that 15 min walk radius. The closest are 5 min. Included is the Republique station, one of the major Metro stations in Paris with 5 different lines crossing there. It's about 7 min walk. There are also several bus lines that run right nearby the apartment. All in all, getting around easy! Moreover, we provide information on how to use taxis in Paris, and we will happily reserve a taxi for you to get you to the airport.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Charles de Gaulle, or Orly: 25.0 km

We will send you a detailed document for getting to the apartment, no matter where you are arriving (airport, train station, etc.). We also send you a whole package of other information so that you'll know all the critical information, like how exactly to get into and out of the building, before you even arrive.
