My DH and I are planning on going to Paris this November for 6 days. We will be celebrating our 10 years together ( not married, just together). After this anniversary, we will start all over again next year when we reach 1 year of marriage.
Anyway, we are not sure where to stay for 6 days. We are looking to rent an apatment and there are sooo many options.
This is what we are looking for:
1) Close to a metro station. What I mean by close is 5-10 minute walk MAX. And this metro station must connect to all major tourist attractions.
2) Close to markets, grocery stores, and/or super markets. As we plan to cook.
3) Lots of bars, cafe’s & restaranuts..within walking distance.
4) Not crazy busy/loud at night since we enjoy sleeping!

Not sure on a site where you could look at apartments to rent, but the further you go out from the center of the city the cheaper it will be. You should be able to find a place fairly close to a metro without a problem. I stayed in a hotel in the Montmartre area a few years ago and it was within walking distance to the metro system.

14th arondissement is nice! There’s a Monoprix, Gerard Mulot, lots of little restaurants. Not too close to the touristy stuff so it’s more laid back.

@FloretteLiz: Thanks, do you know which arondissement that is in?
@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Thanks I will look for apartments around there!

It’s the 18th. The basilique du sacre couer is there and it’s absolutely beautiful. The hillside is a nice place to relax and read or just people watch with a small lunch. The area has a lot of cafes that French artists would frequent. The Moulin Rouge is in that area too so if you want to avoid that little area just be careful of where you pick your apartment or hotel.

We stayed at THIS apartment when we were in Paris for 2 days last Fall.
I absolutely loved it. It’s a one bedroom apartment with a terrace view of the Eiffel Tower. Across the street from a metro station, block from Basilica Sacré-Cœur and Moulin Rouge. There’s a bakery right on the corner and down the block a wonderful crepe shop. Couple blocks away is Montmartre with tons of really cute restaurants.
The apartment has washer, small kitchen, free wifi and international phone calls.
