Pere Lachaise vs. St. Georges

Jump to last reply

Hello all! My family is looking to rent an apartment this summer for a week in Paris. We plan on visiting the touristy sites: Louvre, Notre Dame, etc etc; and have narrowed down our apartment options (via airbnb.com) to two places. One is in Pere Lachaise on Boulevard de Ménilmontant; the other is on Rue de la Tour d'Auvergne, by Rue des Martyrs.

I've heard good AND bad things about Pere-Lachaise; with some saying that it's a straight up working-class hole and no tourist goes there, and for good reasons. Others say that it's an amazing neighborhood devoid of the swarms of tourists seen elsewhere and that there's a huge amount of amazing cafes, etc. there.

Personally I am fine with staying anywhere, but I'm concerned to take my parents and sister to an area that might potentially be unsafe. We're looking for a minimum of nightlife (little noise) and an area that we can stroll around and explore during the mornings; so with interesting cafes, etc; as well as accessibility.

Just looking for opinions on Pere Lachaise, and Pere Lachaise vs. St. Georges area; which one is more preferable for a first time family vacation to Paris?
