This alcove studio apartment is located on the second floor (considered 3rd by Americans) of a pre-war building on Rue Froidevaux between Avenue du Maine and Place Denfert Rochereau in the Montparnasse neighborhood of the 14th arrondissement in Paris. There is a washer and dryer in the apartment for your convenience and an intercom security system. High ceilings make this cozy alcove studio feel open and airy.

Outside the apartment, the neighborhood of Montparnasse and Denfert Rochereau has endless options in terms of shopping and dining. Around the corner on Rue Daguerre not only there excellent bakeries and boutique shops, but at the beginning of the street at Avenue du General Leclerc there is a pedestrian-only portion of the street that serves as an outdoor market of sorts. Shop owners on this road extend the walls of their stores into the street where they sell everything from fresh produce and meats to a wide selection of cheese and homemade pastas. For a wider selection of grocery shopping there is also a Monoprix on the corner.
Many famous Paris attractions are in the immediate area as well. Right on Rue Froidevaux is the Montparnasse cemetery where many famous French people have been buried.

The catacombs, the large underground temple and mass grave are also located right at Place de Denfert-Rochereau.
To access the rest of Paris there are many options in terms of transportation in the area. The closet subway stop is at Gaîté which services line 13. Further down Rue Froideveaux is the Denfert Rochereau metro stop with service on the 4 and 6 lines as well as the RER B. Take line 4 to travel north or south through the middle of Paris, bringing yourself to some popular destinations such as Alésia, Saint-Germain-des-Près, and Île-de-la-Cité where Notre Dame Cathedral and Sainte Chappelle are located. The RER B is a great option to get to the suburbs of Paris where the Stade de France, Charles DeGaulle Interntional Airport and Orly International Airport are located.
