Montmartre

The 18th Arrondissement - Montmartre

Montmartre offers a journey out of time, its cobbled streets, its vineyards, its Sacré-Coeur, its accordions, its painters, this district is an invitation to reverie.
And it is certainly no coincidence that Boris Vian lived there at the end of his life, Impasse Veron to be exact, he then had Prévert as his illustrious neighbour.
You have to climb a little up the rue Lepic to discover the Café des Deux Moulins made famous by the "Fabuleux destiny of Amélie Poulin", and climb it a little more to arrive in the Abbesses district, rather bobo, but still authentic.

To live in Montmartre is to live out of time, to see the electric red lights of the Moulin Rouge, to climb the avenue Junot and to stop for tea at the Hôtel Particulier, it is also to benefit from the excellent programming of the cinema entirely decorated by Jean Cocteau: the Studio 28.
