There is Paris, and there is Montmartre

The Montmartre district

One does not choose to stay in Montmartre by chance. One comes for its romantic atmosphere, the special atmosphere of this eclectic and inspiring neighborhood. Let us introduce you to Montmartre as we know it and as we like it, with its emblematic places and its good addresses.

The history of Montmartre

The history of Montmartre is very old but it can be traced back to a singular event in the history of Paris, the Commune. This revolt was bloodily repressed in May 1871. And it is in repentance of the acts of rebellion and to sound a return to moral order that the Basilica of the Sacred Heart was erected, today a symbol of this historic district.

Built between 1875 and 1891, with some parts only completed in 1923, the basilica has become a religious landmark of the capital. But in its surroundings, the Paris that has settled there since the second half of the 19th century is more artistic.

Atmosphere of artists

Painters, sculptors and writers gathered in Montmartre on the Place du Tertre or in the most famous artists' residence of the time, the Bateau-Lavoir. Camille Pissarro, Pablo Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Maurice Utrillo, Van Gogh, Amedeo Modigliani and many others made, until the 30s, the Montmartre artist and Bohemian that we still know. Even back then, entertainment venues such as the Moulin Rouge and the famous concert halls gave rhythm to life at the bottom of the hill.

Today, this typically Montmartre atmosphere is still palpable, perpetuated by the museums, the painters of the Place du Tertre, the hotels, bars and restaurants of the district. Don't hesitate to ask us for advice on a gourmet table away from the hustle and bustle or for recommendations on the most beautiful artists' galleries. Go on a journey of discovery

Place du Tertre

The Place du Tertre is emblematic of Montmartre. Close to the Sacré-Coeur Basilica, it is where artists gather to exhibit their works to the millions of tourists who visit the Place du Tertre every year. Bars, restaurants and hotels contribute to the typical atmosphere of this Parisian square.


The Sacré-Coeur is the emblem of Montmartre as well as one of the most famous monuments of the capital. Its presence at the top of the hill allows it to be seen from all over the capital and offers to those who are at its feet a magnificent view of the whole city.

Around Paris

If Paris is a city rich in heritage, culture and entertainment, this should not hide the richness of the Ile de France.

Disneyland Paris

A must-see family destination, the park dedicated to Mickey and his friends attracts millions of visitors every year. As soon as you enter the park, you fall back into childhood and are carried away by the magic and enchantment of the attractions, by the atmosphere of the park's alleys, by the permanent staging of the stores, restaurants and queues. With attractions of all styles and for all audiences, Disneyland is a magical destination that should not be missed if you spend a few days with your family in northern Paris.


The village of Giverny sounds like sweet music to the ears of painting enthusiasts. It was here that Monet painted his famous Water Lilies for many years. These still lifes, representing the water lily pond of his estate in Giverny, were an inexhaustible source of inspiration for him. Today, the Water Lilies are one of the most famous collections of paintings in the world. In Giverny, Claude Monet's former home has become a foundation dedicated to his work and the garden can be visited. Explosions of colors, scents and flowers are the promise of the sunny months in Giverny.

Palace of Versailles

Emblematic French castle, witness of the domination of Louis XIV over the country and Europe, Versailles is grandiose. From the inevitable Hall of Mirrors to the more confidential rooms, from the French gardens to Marie-Antoinette's farm, each room and each flowerbed of this domain is sublimely highlighted. Musical tours, fountain watering, night shows in summer, Versailles is a gigantic castle that does not rest on its laurels and constantly innovates to give you the taste to discover and rediscover it.

Louis Vuitton Foundation

Hidden in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is an architectural marvel that hides within its walls one of the most beautiful permanent and temporary exhibition halls in all of Ile de France and the country. The Fondation Louis Vuitton is a grandiose setting for the most beautiful wonders of art.
