La Cigale News Letter
After our recent visit to Paris and La Cigale, I decided to compose a news letter and share some of our experiences with our friends and guests, as well as others who might be interested. I have information and updates concerning La Cigale and La Cigogne. I also included some restaurants that we enjoyed which are easy walking distance from the apartment. I hope that you will find it entertaining and informative. Just follow the link below.
DON'T JUST VISIT PARIS, EXPERIENCE PARIS!!! Have you ever dreamed of visiting Paris and experiencing it from the perspective of a Parisian rather than a tourist; where you could wander the streets and feel the atmosphere, the wonderful sights, smells, and sounds of the local marché, pick up a baguette from your local boulangerie, purchase wine from the local wine shop, and don't forget the incomparable pastries from the local patisserie? Have you ever felt trapped in a small Parisian hotel room, where you are completely dependent on hotel staff for every need? If indeed you have, we have a solution. Two luxury apartments just steps from the rue Mouffetard, and a second apartment situated on the rue de Sèvres in the 6th just a few short blocks from the Bon Marché the oldest department store in Paris and the largest on the left bank.. The first is located at carrefour (corner) of Avenue des Gobelins & Boulevard Saint-Marcel. The apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, large living room, kitchen, dining room, large entry way, on the first floor ( Second floor American), with an elevator, and security code. The second apartment is a two bedroom, one bath apartment on the second floor (third floor American). The building as well as the apartment have been totally refurbished and remodeled in 2003. Please follow the links on this page for your private tour of our apartments. Bonne Visite!!!!!
My wife and I have been to Paris many times and long to spend more time there. We also know what the most discriminating American traveler expects from a Paris apartment experience. We are confident that you will be very comfortable in any of our apartments.
