A rental apartment in Alésia: an affordable neighbourhood, convenient for shopping
This residential area, the result of late urbanisation as well as more recent refurbishments, offers a variety of accommodation, from large villas to smaller apartments. La Cité Universitaire, on the Boulevard Jourdan, hosts more than 5,000 students, while the flow of visitors is divided between the catacombs stretching from La Place Denfert-Rochereau to the Rue Rémy Dumoncel, and the delightful 'allées' of the park.
The neighbourhood of Alésia is an affordable area, both for an apartment rental and for daily living. In fact, a stay in Alésia means a number of shops and fashion boutiques with attractive prices will be close at hand (they are concentrated between the Carrefour Alésia and Rue des Plantes).

A rental apartment in Alésia: accessible area, green spaces, unique days out...
If you choose to live in the south of the city, especially in Paris 14, the Alésia neighbourhood offers not only the great architectural diversity of a varied selection of housing (from a furnished studio for students to a family home plus a courtyard or private garden), but also the welcome proximity of one of the capital's largest green spaces: the Parc Montsouris. You will find many houses with an adjoining garden, as well as artist studios and even villas. Often sited in suburban cul-de-sacs, they are invisible from the street, allowing for true privacy plus the enjoyment of a shady garden in central Paris. A number of Haussmann-style buildings on the Rue d'Alésia alternate with the more populist buildings with their plaster façades, as well as authentic suburban buildings of one- or two storeys.
Certain recently renovated zones are also subject to environmental policies designed to minimize car journeys and enhance the green spaces, thus improving the quality of life for local inhabitants – who already benefit from the proximity of the Parc Mountsouris – by a few more notches. Likewise with sports amenities, Alésia is a neighbourhood designed for the welfare of its community, where club facilities are widely available in a variety of disciplines: martial arts, gym, swimming. If you have children, you will have no trouble finding a school with the Collèges Alphonse Daudet and Jean Moulin, the Lycées Jacques Monod and Eric Satie, or courses at Saint-John Perse ... And finally, whenever provisions are required, besides other neighbourhood food outlets, the Mouton-Duvernet market is held on Tuesdays and Fridays at the Place Jacques Demy.
