About our home

Our house is part of a listed district in the south of Paris, built in the 30s which has kept its "village in the city" touch. It is a three floor 130 m2 house not including a mezzanine on top where our bedroom is located. Kitchen and a dining room with a sitting room are on 1st floor, two bedrooms, including a kids'one with bunk beds, and a bathroom on the 2nd, a separate sitting room with library, fireplace and TV on the 3rd, which also has an adjoining terrace which can sit 4/5 people for lunch/dinner, cocktails....and a separate bathroom. There is a very small yard behind the house on the ground floor where we nurture some plants and store the bikes (we are both very active bikers in Paris). Decoration is a light mix of Art deco and Art nouveau and is driven by comfort. Books have found their way at all levels.
The trendy Butte Aux Cailles district is just up the hill as is the parc Montsouris where walking, reading or jogging is a treat. There are a couple of typical Paris markets nearly every day within 10 mns walk. Bus and RER lead to the City of Lights center in 20/25mns

More about us

  1. We are in our 60s and at a turning point in life when travelling and experiencing different places and people become much more possible than before: we will love it, for sure!
  2. Emmanuelle is a retired sociologist who loves to bike in Paris, jog in the park and search bargains in auctions. Bernard works as a independent consultant in media. Both are in love of Gascony where they own a country house
  3. We are freshborn (not that fresh...they are 9 and 12) grandparents...therefore the kids'room and we enjoy it, as much as we like art (photography and decorative arts especially), going to the movies (Paris is a paradise for movie buffs) and eating great food and wine. That probably qualifies us as hedonists..! We have travelled extensively in Europe but we want more!!!
