We are situated in the NE quarter of CENTRAL PARIS right next to the largest park inside of Paris : a mere 10 min direct subway ride to the historical center of Paris (NOTRE DAME).

It is an easy 5 minute walk to 2 subway stations and 2 bus stops with direct lines to the Louvre - Opera - Notre Dame - Le Marais.

More about the neighbourhood

our home is also close to Gare du Nord train station for your side trips to London (2.5 hrs) and Brussels (1.5 hrs)

Our neighborhood is a lovely area called the "Mouzaia" located in the 19th district near the 19th-century romantic Buttes-Chaumont park. The dwellings are ivy-covered cottage size houses whose gardens open onto cobblestone alleyways - the charm of the country in an urban venue.

The neighborhood is mixed and trendy not far from La Villette and the Chinese and artistic quarters of Belleville and Canal St Martin :
