Elegant & spacious apt at the foot of Montmarte
Paris, Ile-de-France (Paris Region), France
Additional Location Information
The Fontaine apartment is situated in La Nouvelle Athènes, a neighbourhood steeped in a fascinating history that lies at the foot of Montmartre.
While the district was originally developed for the up-and-coming classes, intellectuals and courtesans were attracted to the area for its lively and eccentric feel. The neighbourhood became a hub of romanticism and, by the 19th century, a community of prominent artists populated the area. Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, Edgar Degas, and André Breton are just some of the famous artists who resided on Rue Pierre Fontaine during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The eclecticism of the period lives on in the beautiful mansions and performance venues, the skeletons of old cabarets, and dance cafés where Parisians would go to mingle with the riffraff. You can experience the area's energy and excitement firsthand on and around Boulevard de Clichy, near Place Pigalle. Strolling past the Moulin Rouge, it's easy to imagine Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec making his sketches of French can-can dancers.
Montmartre sits just behind the Moulin Rouge. In mere minutes, you are in Montmartre village, so unique and bucolic you'd almost forget you were in Paris!
