This furnished one bedroom duplex is located on Rue Georges Pitard between Rue de la procession and Rue de Vouille. The apartment is in a mostly residential neighborhood, allowing the tenant to experience real Parisian life with charming squares and all sorts of boutiques, restaurants, pleasant cafes, open-air markets, supermarkets, and convenience shops.
It is close to the open market on rue Alésia with its specialty stores, such as bakeries, delicatessens and cheese shops. In close proximity, there is also the famous "Marché au puces de Vanves" with shops selling old books, furniture and antiques. This market is the smallest in Paris but ideal for finding something interesting to take back home. Within walking distance of this market is the Parc Georges Brassens, a pretty place with a large second-hand book market on weekends.
Farther, to the east, is the huge Porte de Versailles Trade Show Center and, to the north, the lively and trendy Montparnasse district, also famous for the city's highest skyscraper showing a singular view over Paris and for its large number of theaters and cinemas.
This ancient atelier has been transformed into a spacious loft. In the beginning of the 20th century, it was built to accommodate the workers during the Universal Exposition of Paris. Now, it is surrounded by contemporary artists' ateliers.
