"Villa des Platanes, 18th." Top 5 Page for this destination Paris Off The Beaten Path Tip by pfsmalo

Paris Off The Beaten Path: 1,968 reviews and 4,171 photos

Just along from the Cité du Midi is this fine courtyard, Villa des Platanes, but there's no way of getting in here, gate closed and digicoded, plus concierge outside her room grimacing. Didn't stop me poking the telephoto lens through the gate though. There are two lovely patina'd ceilings and a double staircase in the form of a horseshoe leading to the apartments behind.

Blanch and Pigalle are the nearset metro stations.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
