About the Neighbourhood

20ème - Père Lachaise

Maxime chose this area as his home for its unique country-style, a real residential and tranquil village in Paris 15 minutes from the center via the famous metro (3 minutes away) 'Porte des Lilas'  station - where many movies and advertising shoots are shot. This is a uniquely and authentically Parisian area with lots of diversity and culture, all the typical brasseries, boulangeries, boutiques, gardens and parks etc yet it is unlike anywhere else in the city. Our home is located in a short garden lane with no cars, a real heaven inside Paris and a rare privilege to experience one of the old cobblestone secret passages of Paris that is your way home. For travelers seeking authenticity, slow village life and tranquility this is the home for you.
