About the Neighborhood
This Paris apartment in St Lazare is in the fashionable Eighth Arrondissement, which is located right off the Place de Dublin in the heart of the "Europe" district, which was developed in the middle of the XIX th century and was a favorite subject of many Impressionist painters. The neighborhood looks much the same today as it used to some 100 years ago. Now, however, the Place de Dublin has trees and cafés, bakeries, and other small shops. There are charming flower boxes on the apartment balconies and in many of the windows throughout the area. The Eighth Arrondissement contains many of Paris' best known sights: the avenue des Champs-Elysées, the Madeleine, Place de la Concorde, the luxury shops along the rue du Faubourg St. Honoré and the avenue Montaigne and, of course, part of the right bank of the Seine. The "Europe" district itself is very typically Parisian and is much more residential with fewer tourists than the better known parts of the Eighth Arrondissement. The other parts of the Eighth are only minutes away by foot, bus, or metro. There are 3 metro stops within a 3 minute walk of the apartment. All of these stops are pleasant and relatively uncrowded. The Place de Clichy, with its metro stop (lines 2 and 13), cinemas, bookstore, and late-night cafés and restaurants, and the Gare St. Lazare, a major transportation hub, are only slightly further away. Several bus lines stop on or near the Place de Dublin. Shopping opportunities abound in the immediate vicinity. The small streets off the Place de Dublin have many restaurants, bakeries, and other food shops. One block away, on the boulevard des Batignolles, is a weekly outdoor organic food market. The daily outdoor market on the rue de Lévis is also very convenient. Just across the boulevard des Batignolles is the village-like rue des Batignolles, with its many shops and restaurants. There is also a very good gym, which can be hard to find in Paris. A short walk away is the beautiful Parc Monceau, one of Paris' best-loved parks. This is a great place for jogging, people watching, and relaxing. It also has a children's playground. Montmartre and the major department stores on the Boulevard Haussmann (Printemps, Galeries Lafayette) are a 10 minute walk from the apartment. The Champs-Elysées and the Opera are three short metro stops away and also easily accessible by foot.
