Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy

its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
