The real advantage to theGare d’Austerlitz – 2 Bedroom is the sunny apartment itself. It may not be the idyllic 18th century building, but this modern building has an elevator, large balconies, & underground parking. A parking garage is rare, & comes in handy for road trips, guests or large shopping trips. Rent a car & take a tour through French villages to Champagne or Lyon…
