An apartment rental in Paris 5 : a very lively... village!
The fifth district is an arrondissement especially favoured by singles with good incomes who appreciate life among the quiet streets of a comfortable residential neighbourhood, since they are living at very heart of the capital. Even if the Gobelins area and the area around La Gare d'Austerlitz on the edge of the district, attract slightly lower prices than the fifth-arrondissement average, the stone buildings on the Boulevard Saint-Michel and the distinctive narrow streets of the highly-rated Mauber-Mutualités area are much sought after by more affluent owners and tenants.
Though it is fashionable, the fifth is not the most expensive residential district in Paris because some areas, like the Rue Mouffetard, still remain affordable. Verlaine, Hemingway and others had earlier boasted of this picturesque area near La Montagne Saint-Geneviève which housed the Grand Mosque. Those living in the fifth arrondissement often speak of it as a village, full of food shops in the Gobelins area (including a farmer's market well-known throughout Paris), neighbourhood schools, art house cinemas (including the cinéma du Panthéon, one of the oldest in Paris) and small historic theatres (the Théâtre de la Huchette, and the Théâtre Mouffetard). Several nationally recognised high schools (Lycée Henri-IV, Lycée Lavoisier, and Lycée Louis-le-Grand) are all in the fifth arrondissement, which is served by four métro lines and Paris RER lines B and C.
