Romantic weekend in Paris

Art Galeries, spa, jacuzzis, cinema, pool table… and a rich neighborhood : architecture, artist studios, catacombes, parc Montsouris...

Art at home

In collaboration with Parisian galleries and artists, we organise contemporary art exhibitions throughout the year.

You will be able to discover the artists we love and even buy some of the works on display to take home one of your favourites.

We can also advise you on the numerous exhibitions in museums, institutions and art galleries in Paris.

To be discovered nearby

Both residential and animated the 14th area is the perfect balance between calm and active city life. For daily needs shops, restaurants, public transportation and services are at a walking distance. By the quality of life it offers, the 14th area is much appreciated by familles, universitary teachers, young and dynamic professionals and artists.

If it’s your first time in Paris you’ll have an insight of the real Parisian life a few stops away from the core of the city.

The XIV also hides its treasures, don’t miss

​La Tour Montparnasse
If the queues at the Eiffel Tower are just too much for you and your time is limited, consider a trip up the Montparnasse Tower.
This is an office building with an observation and shopping area on the 56th floor, where the elevators stop, and an open viewing area on the roof.
The view is better than from the Eiffel Tower: you are not so high up so things are more visible, and you can see the Eiffel Tower!
Les Catacombes de Paris
One of the most eye-popping sights of Paris, the Catacombs represent a network of labyrinthine tunnels, first excavated in the Roman period, that now house the remains of over 6 million burials removed here from the various overcrowded cemeteries and charnel houses all over Paris in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Well worth a visit: the atmosphere is suitably morbid and gloomy (without being too scary), the dark tunnels containing neatly stacked piles of skulls and long bones.
Le Parc Montsouris
Considered as one of the most colourful Parisian parks, a local favourite, the Parc Montsouris was opened in 1878, having been designed by Alphand for the Baron Haussmann. A large man-made lake and waterfalls are surrounded by long stretches of gently sloping lawns. Bronze statues are to be found studded around the grounds, amongst the 1,400 trees, including such exotic varieties as the giant sequoia and the ginkgo.  It is popular among families (there are two playground areas for children) and students. Why not picnic on the lawn in spring or summertime?
Porte de Vanves Flee Market
Smaller and  more friendly than Saint-Ouen, the market at Vanves is appreciated for its more manageable size. Some dealers swear by the mish-mash of stands at this weekend market, spread out over two avenues. This might not be the best place for furniture or antiques, but there’s much to please the casual browser, especially if you’re after a curious « je ne sais quoi ». Comb through the racks of Hermès scarves and flapper dresses, scour the boxes of perfume bottles and vintage toys, explore the crates of vinyls and gorgeous French linens. There are chocolate moulds here, 1950s sewing accessories – just make sure you arrive early for the best finds. Time Out
History, Architecture and Arts
The 14th area has notable examples of architecture of every period from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. It is along with the Latin Quarter in the 5th District the only area on the left bank inhabited since the Gallo-Roman era as it was traversed by the road linking Paris to Rome. Up to the vast urban transformations commissioned by Louis XIV during the 17th century or Haussmann renovations the area shows examples of all styles. In the 20th century, the Art Deco style of architecture first appeared in Paris, and Paris architects also influenced the postmodern architecture of the second half of the century.
Some famous artists whose houses too are famous have lived in the immediate vincinity of our building - Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Nicolas de Stael, Amédée Ozanfant, Chana Orloff, Robert M. Fischer, Salvador Dali, the American writer Frank Townshend, Henri Miller and Anais Nin, … 
La Place Denfert Rochereau
The Lion of Belfort is a bronze replica in smaller scale of a monument created by Bartholdi, the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty in New York, in order to commemorate Denfert-Rochereau, who defended the city of Paris in the 1870/71 war. 
La Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain
The Cartier Foundation is a museum of contemporary art. It was founded in 1984 by the well known jewel and watch manufacturer Cartier. In 1994 it moved to the new building erected on plans of the architect Jean Nouvel. 
La Cité Universitaire
The C.I.U.P. is a student quarter founded in 1925, providing homes for about 10.000 students, scientists and artists from 120 countries. It has 40 houses attributed to individual nations. The individual houses organize top quality cultural and political events.
The main building was built in 1933  and is a replica of the Fontainebleau Chateau, mostly financed by John D. ROCKEFELLER Jr. after he helped rebuilding Versailles and Fontainebleau. Among the most remarkable buildings are the Fondation Deutsch de la Meurthe, the Heinrich Heine House, the Swedish Student House and the Swiss Pavillion  which was built in 1933 on plans of Le Corbusier. 
The C.I.U.P can be visited.
Le Cimetière du Montparnasse
The burial place of existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, feminist Simone de Beauvoir (both of whom lived nearby), musician Serge Gainsbourg, artist Man Ray, the poets Charles Baudelaire, Guy de Maupassant, Charles Sainte-Beuve and Marguerite Duras, the founders of the Theatre of the Absurd Samuel Becket and Eugene Ionesco, the sculptors Constantin Brancusi and Ossip Zadkine, the composers Camille de Saint-Saens and César Franck, the actresses Maria Montez and Jean Seberg, the French officer Alfred Dreyfus, the founder of the Larousse encyclopedia Pierre Larousse, the constructor André Citroen and many others. Many tombs have interesting art and designs.
