This three-floor apartment in the Montparnasse neighbourhood of Paris shows how the sparing use of colour can really bring an interior to life. Against a backdrop of stark white walls and a shiny wooden floor, the furnishings in bold hues and collection of house plants stand out. It certainly helps that the two French doors at the end of the living room let in large amounts of natural light, as well as opening out to Juliet balconies that look out over the fourteenth arrondissement. In the local area, Montparnasse Cemetery — the resting place of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Paul Sartre — sits just next door, while the Catacombs can be reached in only thirteen minutes on foot. If you're looking for something a little less morbid, Le Jardin Luxembourg is only sixteen minutes away on foot and is flourishing with greenery.
Home truths: *The apartment is split across three floors, so it might not be suitable for guests with reduced mobility
*There's no private parking space, but Gaité metro station sits just across the street
*At the full occupancy of ten guests, four guests will be sleeping on two sofa-beds in communal areas
