The Neighborhood.

Overview. Our apartment is located in the middle of the Village d'Aligre in the heart of Paris, minutes away from the historic Place de la Bastille. An authentic and vibrant Parisian residential neighborhood.

Village d'Aligre. The Village d’Aligre is famous for its daily food market and its numerous and diverse gourmet shops, bakeries, bistros and restaurants. It houses the Marché d'Aligre, one of the largest and most popular outdoor marketplaces in Paris, and a two-minute walk from our apartment. This is a genuine Parisian gathering place where local residents shop and meet friends for lunch, a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine.

La Coulée Verte. Eight-minute walk from the apartment. Constructed on an elevated former railroad, this is one of the secret gardens in Paris and one that few visitors ever get a chance to experience. A five-kilometer long sanctuary where Parisians go jogging, read a book, or meet up with friends, and a unique place to see the city from a completely different angle.

Place de la Bastille. Ten-minute walk. The epicenter of the 1789 French Revolution, this landmark is one of the most recognized sites in Paris. The Opéra-Bastille -- the main opera house in Paris and home of the Opéra National de Paris -- is located right on Place de la Bastille.

Quartier du Marais. Fifteen-minute walk. The oldest and most charming neighborhood in Paris. The area is home to the Musée Picasso, the Jewish Museum, the Place des Vosges, and many historic buildings and sites.

Gare de Lyon. Ten-minute walk. The Gare de Lyon is the departure station for most of the cities and regions in southern and central France, including Lyon, Nice, Marseilles, and the Languedoc region, but also for Italy and Switzerland.

Airport Transportation. Air France operates a daily bus service between the Gare de Lyon and Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport every 30 minutes, from 7am to 9pm.

Métro Stations. Ledru-Rollin (Line 8) or Bastille (Lines 1, 5, and 8).

Bus. Line 86 to Saint-Germain des Prés and line 76 to the Louvre (bus stop located 20 meters from building). Numerous bus lines from Bastille, including Lines 20 and 29 to Opéra Garnier, and Line 91 to Montparnasse.
