It's a very nice neighbourhood. Most of the people living in the building are good friends of ours. It's a very lively place, full of café and small restaurants that are open over the week end. A typically left bank atmosphere but not a posh one, more family like, many students around because of La Sorbonne and top french high school.
The rue Mouffetard (3 min walk) is a typical french street, very pittoresque, with its traditionnal outdoor fruit and vegetable markets, cheese shops and typical french bakeries (with delicious french cakes and breads) and groceries.The jardin du Luxembourg and the Jardin des Plantes are only five min walk, Saint-Germain des Prés, La Seine and Notre-Dame-de Paris are 10/15 min walk. Several buses are few steps from our door, subway Censier-Daubenton is 5 min walk, subway Luxembourg 10 min max. It's a perfect place for visiting Paris and enjoying the typical parisian way of life of the left Bank.
