The apartment

On rue de Mirbel, in a beautiful Haussmannien building, this Seasonal rental in Paris near the Jardin des Plantes is a pleasant apartment with beautiful volumes in a graphic harmony of black and white.

One enters by a small hall which gives access on the left to the bathroom, and in front to the living room - dining room.

In the bathroom, the white and its transparencies dominate: the glass of the basin and the mirrors make a diaphanous atmosphere. The bath is equipped with a large diameter shower head.

In the large living room, on the left is a small fitted kitchen area, whose black and white mosaics match the general theme of this Seasonal rental in Paris near the Jardin des Plantes. The dining area has a beautiful dark wood veneer table, surrounded by pretty wooden bistro chairs. Finally, in the living room area, a thick carpet whose geometrical motifs recall the works of Miro next to the black marble mantelpiece veined in white.

At the end of the room, the shelves of the library are richly furnished in books, as it should be in an apartment in the Latin Quarter. On the walls, numerous reproductions, drawings, sketches, give the apartment an appreciable aesthetic cachet

At the end of the living room on the right, you have access to the double room. Here again books have a prominent place, as well as reproductions of works of art, such as those sketched by Modigliani, of a woman's head with features inspired by those of the statues of the Cyclades.

  • 1 master bedroom with double bed (140 x 200);

The neighborhood

We are found, with this Seasonal rental in Paris near the Jardin des Plantes, in the heart of the student part of Paris. We are very close to the Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3 university, as well as many research and higher education institutes.

The pretty square René Viviani, on the quay de Montebello, houses the oldest tree in Paris, a black locust acacia planted in 1601 by the botanist Jean Robin. On the edge of the square, the small church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre dates from 1160. It now houses the Greek-Catholic Melkite community, which follows the rite of St. John Chrysostom.

Rue des Ecoles, the respectable Collège de France is open to all, the doors of its conference rooms, where world leaders in science and research regularly take part in free lectures on a variety of subjects: history, archeology, physics, Philosophy, genetics, literature...

Imagined with disproportion by the architect Soufflot, the Pantheon had to compete with Saint Peter of Rome and Saint Paul of London. 75 French personalities are buried there: intellectuals and writers like Voltaire and Zola, scientists like Marcellin and Sophie Berthelot or Marie Curie, resistants like Germaine Tillion. The Pantheon also houses the Foucault Pendulum.

A few minutes walk from this Seasonal rental in Paris near the Jardin des Plantes, the unbeatable Studio Galande has retained since 1978 the spirit of the Latin Quarter, a mixture of intellectual and nerd. Every weekend for more than 38 years, fans have met here for screenings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, hosted by an amateur theater troupe. The rest of the week, the Studio is a quality art and test cinema that features the latest releases of independent cinema.

The English-language Shakespeare and Company, first opened by Sylvia Beach in 1919 rue de l'Odéon, that welcomed the great American writers based in Paris: Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and Francis Scott Fitzgerald. The brand was later taken over by George Whitman in the 1960s as a tribute to Sylvia Beach. Whitman, who died in 2011, was a generous eccentric: many artists and writers without money could spend the night free in the bookstore – provided that they help to store books and that they read one book a day.

The pastry shop Carl Marletti offers the latest creations of this pastry master, former employee of the Café de la Paix. They are full of lightness and originality, and one is not begged to test them.

When you climb Montagne Sainte-Geneviève from this Seasonal rental in Paris near the Jardin des Plantes, you will find on rue des Boulangers one of the four Parisian boutiques Bières Cultes, which spreads the good word of artisan beers: ale, porter, stout, Lager or trappist beer, the menu is rich and the cellar well supplied.

On the shore facing Notre-Dame and the Saint Louis Island, Le Réminet bistro offers traditional French cuisine, fish and meat cooked with great attention and served in the romantic and intimate setting of a historic building.

Set in an old sheepfold of the 17th century, the restaurant La Truffière naturally reserves, as its name suggests, a place of choice for the black truffle, the precious Tuber Melanosporum. We find the truffle here and there, in honor or discreet according to the dishes, from the entree to the dessert.
