Which Paris apartment for family of four?

Jump to last reply

Hello! Our family of four (two parents, two kids ages 8 and 12) will be in Paris for five nights in October. I need to decide (today!) between two lovely apartments:

This one is in St. Germain on Rue du Cherche Midi (cross street Saint Placide).

This one is near Pompidou (rue de la Reynie). Fifth floor walkup.

My main consideration is location--we're looking for something with good markets nearby since we plan to cook most dinners at home (my 12 year old has diabetes; restaurant meals can be complicated for us to calculate), easy access to metro/museums (Louvre, Orsay, Cluny), charm. We had originally planned to stay in the Marais but that apartment fell through. Please advise--I'm anxious to book an apartment and start the fun part of the planning process. And many thanks in advance!
