The apartment is located in one of the most historical areas of Paris, in the 5ème arrondissement.
The neighboring Rue Mouffetard is famous in all of Paris for its winding streets and alleys and for its open air food market (held on weekends in Rue Mouffetard and Rue Censier), where one can still find excellent local specialties. The street offers a wide range of boutiques, pubs, restaurants, all the way down to Place de la Contrescarpe, a charming corner of Paris which looks and feels more like a quiet village square.
Within walking distance you find the Jardin des Plantes, the main botanical garden in France and home to four important museums (the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution, the Mineralogy Museum, the Paleontology Museum and the Entomology Museum) and to a small zoo, founded back in 1795.
The garden comprises more than 4500 plants, Art Deco greenhouses and a Rose Garden, with hundreds of different species of roses.
Another important sight in the area is the Jardin du Luxembourg, home to the Musée and the Palais du Luxembourg, once the official residence of the Maria de Medici and now the seat of the French Senate.
In a very close proximity is the Pitié-Salpetrière hospital, the Cochin hospital, which also comprises a centre of biomedical research, and the Val-de-Grâce military hospital.
The area is also very popular for the many schools and universities: Sorbonne University, Lycée Henri IV and the Ecole Normale Supérieure, only to name a few.
Services in the district: Carrefour and Monoprix supermarket; cinemas; pharmacies in Rue Monge; restaurants and cafés.
The closest subway stops are Censier-Daubenton and Les Gobelins (line 7), and Port Royal (RER B).
The closest parking is ‘SAEMES’, at 300 metres at Parc Patriarches, 4 rue Marché des Patriarches."
