I just love Paris apartments! They might not be the most practical, but they are definitely very charming and full of beautiful details. And, once you lived in one of them even for a few days, the experience is impossible to forget!
Because I like the 11th arrondissement, I always stayed in this area when visiting Paris, close to Bastille, Canal Saint-Martin and Avenue Parmentier.
However, on the last trip to Paris, we visited some friends who moved to the city a couple of months ago. The apartment where they were temporarily living was situated in the 17th arrondissement, one I had heard of being the residence of some of the most privileged Parisians.
It was my first time in the 17th and, the moment I entered the building where this apartment was located, I immediately understood why it was considered so special!
