11th Arrondissement, Paris:

3 Bedroom Rental in Pere Lachaise Nation (PA-2472) stairsMost historically well known for being the birthplace of the French Revolution, the 11th Arrondissement has contemporarily become the hipster escape from all things tourist in Paris. Boasting the Place de la Bastille, Place de la Nation, and the Place de la République, the area is a fascinating combination of newly built, trendy designs and 19th century Haussmann influence.

The Place de la Nation (the neighborhood of our aforementioned three-bedroom rental) is a more family oriented region. Nearby, however, the area surrounding Rue Oberkampf boasts an exciting collection of shops, galleries, restaurants, and clubs. Oberkampf, the Place de la Bastille, as well as the famous Paris attractions outside of the 11th Arrondissement can all be reached via the many metro lines that converge within this location.
