My apartment (38m2) is perfectly located in the north of Paris just behind the vivid Bassin de la Villette. Besides great Cafés, you have several shops and 3 different metro lines (2/5/7) in font the door. It takes one station to Gare du Nord and two to Gare du l'Est. Four stations away you will find the Sacre Coeur, the heart of Montmartre, and multiplies Bars and Restaurants. Also you will have the metro directly to Opera and Chatelet (walking distance to Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame).
