Home Away From Home

Some of you have asked about our flat. I don’t feel comfortable sharing pictures of the flat because it is not ours…even though I could claim it right now! I can share about the neighborhood and surroundings.

Susan  and Michael have a beautiful home. It is filled with memories. That is the only way for me to describe it. Treasures from a lifetime of travel: books, trinkets, art work and small souvenirs. It is very comfortable and cozy.

By Paris standards this flat is huge. A large entryway, nice sized living/dining room, TV room, generous bedroom and two bathrooms.The galley kitchen is outfitted with modern cabinetry and appliances.

Courtyard of the apartments. We overlook this garden from the second floor.

The neighborhood is quiet and clean yet close to town. The Metro stop is right across the street.

8 rue Bremontier to Left of Church

We have a church next door….love the bells ringing. A pharmacy, book store, several restaurants, neighborhood schools and banks are in this area. The grocery stores are within walking distance as well as several other shopping establishments.  La Poste is right around the corner. It is a small community within the larger city.

Thanks for stopping by today. We’ll be home soon. I can’t believe it is so close!
