Located on a high hill in the 20th arrondissement, this small village, where you can find many small pavilions, takes us away from Paris tumult for a moment, to discover a unique atmosphere bringing us back to the countryside, with small streets which can be described as very pretty and unusual !
You can access this district at Porte de Bagnolet. Then, you can get there in two ways : take one of the stairs, or take rue Pierre Mouillard.
This charming and silent neighborhood offers you a real change of scenery. You will discover its pretty cobbled streets, surrounded by small pavilions (around 90) dating from the beginning of the 20th century, and numerous little gardens.
Its different small dwellings make the charm of this place, thanks to their different colored facades. We discover little houses that are similar in their basic architecture, but each with their own personalities.
This district, built in 1907 on old underground quarries and intended primarily to accommodate the working class in order to improve their living conditions, is now rather reserved for a fairly wealthy population.
In the surrounding area, you can also discover the Butte Bergeyre or the Butte aux Cailles, also resembling small villages, but far from being as exotic as the magnificent "La Campagne à Paris" district ! You can also find at Place Edith Piaf the famous statue of "la môme" at Ménilmontant, or go to the "village of Charonne" to explore the rue Saint-Blaise.
