Visit the Notre-Dame-des-Champs quarter
On the left bank of the capital, in the southern part of the sixth district, the Notre-Dame-des-Champs, also known by the acronym of NDDC, is bordered by the Rues de Sèvres and d'Assas and the Montparnasse boulevard.
There are many reputable schools in the area, which consequently attract many wealthy families. Lovers of the Parisian cultural scene are also drawn to the area because of its theatres, cinemas and museums. Some of the best restaurants in Paris are just a step away, and the shops in this area are particularly tempting!
Notre-Dame-des-Champs often appears to visitors as the perfect neighbourhood as its inhabitants live in the heart of Paris, and are also able to enjoy the quiet of its ancient streets built in the middle of the field.
Staying in an apartment in Notre-Dame-des-Champs in the 6th arrondissement of Paris
Lines 4 and 12 of the metro intersect in the Notre-Dame-des-Champs, and run through three stations: Notre-Dame-des-Champs, Rennes and Saint-Placide. They connect the southern part of the sixth arrondissement with the rest of Paris, especially with the neighbouring districts that are rich in tourist attractions.
As it is so well-connected and accessible, and because of its bourgeois charm and quiet streets, it is very agreeable to stay in Notre-Dame-des-Champs when you holiday in Paris. You can also take the opportunity to discover a series of characteristic monuments, starting with the front of the Hotel Lutetia on Boulevard Raspail (currently closed for renovations, but the entrance gates are classified as historical monuments) and the old nearby swimming pool, decorated in Art Deco style, which now hosts a Hermes shop on several floors.
Between Rue de Sèvres and Rue Saint-Romain, the former mansion Choiseul-Praslin, with its neo-Louis XV style furnishings and neo-Gothic chapel, is a true testament to the eighteenth century. On the Boulevard du Montparnasse, you can see the church of Notre-Dame-des-Champs, built on the remains of a Roman temple once dedicated to the worship of Mercury. The neighbourhood is named after this church.
Finally, history lovers will be fascinated with the Museum of the Bible and the Holy Land of the Catholic Institute, which displays many objects and ceramics from ancient Palestine, including a fragment of a manuscript of the Dead Sea and a death mask.
The Zadkine and Hébert museums are devoted to the respective works of the two artists; art enthusiasts will rejoice in the paintings and sculptures.
Finally, why not take a break in the Pierre-Lafue square, where you can admire a statue that was erected as a tribute to Dreyfus?
