With its cobbled streets, stunning Basilica, artists, and bistros ... Montmartre is full of charm! Perched on the top of a small hill in the 18th arrondissement, the most famous Parisian district has lost none of its village atmosphere that appealed so much to the artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. A real melting pot of art and inspiration for the cinema, Montmartre still gives as much pleasure to those who stroll around it and figures high on the list for a stay in Paris.

🇫🇷 Click on this video to learn some key French words:

🇫🇷 Bienvenue Rue de l'Abreuvoir. Montmartre, Paris (18ème arrondissement).

🇫🇷 Make sure on your next visit to Paris to visit rue de l’Abreuvoir, one of the oldest and most historic streets in Paris in Montmartre (In 1843, it was called "Chemin de l'Abreuvoir" because of the path that led to the old Montmartre watering hole located at the corner of rue Girardon) … Here are my favorite landmarks:

🇫🇷 On one end of this cobbled street, you’ll discover the iconic Instagram-famous ‘La Maison Rose’ (2 rue de l'abreuvoir), while on the other end, you’ll soon find yourself at Place Dalida (famous singer-songwriter who rests in Montmartre Cemetery). Check her songs; she was a Diva!

🇫🇷 If you loved Emily in Paris…

This is where Emily decides to set up a marketing campaign for Hästens beds, and it’s also where Maison Rose, the charming restaurant where Emily and Mindy have dinner in the fifth episode, is located. Opened in 1908 by Germaine Pichot, Maison Rose once played host to many famous people, including Pablo Picasso, Edith Piaf, and Albert Camus.

Mindy calls Rue de l’Abreuvoir ‘the prettiest street in Paris’ and explains to Emily that it is also called la rue qui va au bout, i.e. the road that leads to the end. While neither of those things is officially true, Rue de l’Abreuvoir is one of Montmartre's quaintest streets!

🇫🇷 One of the most charming homes I cherish is situated 4 rue de l’abreuvoir

« La maison des aigles » (the house of the eagles)

The cost per square foot is 2 951 €… Ouh là là! Look up, and you will see the pointy spire of The Basilica of Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre. The ultimate view of Paris as it’s the highest point of the city.

🇫🇷 My secret gem in Montmartre is a charming small independent cinema classified "Art et Essai" (Art House). It was the meeting place of painters, poets, and filmmakers such as Luis Buñuel, Jean Cocteau, and Abel Gance.

The films are screened in their original version, with French directors in the majority.

➡️ Studio 28

10 Rue Tholozé, 75018 Paris

🇫🇷 My favorite hotel near by is l’Hôtel Relais Montmartre

A hidden gem in the heart of Montmartre tucked away in a quiet side street.

Nicely decorated boutique hotel. Cozy, clean & friendly with A/C. Very peaceful at night - no traffic or people noise…So you can be fresh for your next discoveries! 

The price is really good for a 4 star; you will be very surprised.

🇫🇷 You can stroll to the historic area in Place du Tertre, go to the Espace Dali, and pass by the cabaret du Lapin Agile.

🇫🇷 Make sure to stop at the restaurant Poulbot (3 rue Poulbot) to have an Authentic French experience.

Then why not visiting the Musée Montmartre… bonne visite!

🇫🇷 After visiting the basilica, don’t hesitate to go to the Tourism Information of Montmartre on the way to Poulbot restaurant! They will give you tons of tips (They also speak English); one is to book a tour of the Montmartre grapeVines.

❤️ I hope this helps you for your next adventure!
