We're a couple in our early thirties, both working in marketing. We absolutely love to travel, and, after living two years in London, have already done a full world trip in 2006 from South America to Oceania. We're more than happy to enable you to discover Paris from a Parisian point of view while living in a typical and comfortable Parisian flat and having the option to make the most of a very lively and welcoming neighborhood that's ideal to relax once you've been strolling around in busy and hectic Paris.
The Buttes Chaumont park area is where all the best and newest places to go out have opened in the past two years. This is a trendy artistic laid back area. The next door Buttes Chaumont park welcomes the hippest cafe / restaurant in Paris, the "Rosa Bonheur", that stays open until after the park closes (around 10 pm in summer time). You will also find right inside the park two restaurants: the Italian "Pavillon Puebla" and the newly opened French "Pavillon du lac". About 5 minutes walk from the flat, the "Canal de l'Ourcq" neighborhood is where Parisians like to get together in sunny times to play the "pétanque", have pique-nique and drinks along the borders of the canal.
