Additional Location Information
So how to satisfy that craving for comfort that is particularly acute if one is not staying in a suite at the Ritz but in one of those functional, undersize rooms for which Paris is famous? How also to satisfy that perennial desire for discovery, particularly if the city is familiar?
Head over to the Rue des Martyrs, just northeast of the Galeries Lafayette department store and southwest of the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur at Montmartre. This half-mile street, mostly uphill, is the spine of a neighborhood that offers magic in a compressed time and space.
The Rue des Martyrs starts at the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette Church and ends near the Place des Abbesses. The busy Boulevard de Rochechouart slices the street in two at the Pigalle Métro, and divides it between the 9th and the 18th Arrondissements. Both parts blend the coziness of a village frozen in time and the vitality of a neighborhood described as "bobo," or bourgeois bohemian.
The lower part of the street seems more bourgeois, because so many young, upwardly mobile families have moved in here on the heels of the artists, filmmakers and writers who came years ago. It is closed to cars, but not bicycles or baby strollers, on Sunday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., making its specialty food and flower shops, boutiques and restaurants easy to navigate. The upper part, with its cabarets and clubs and proximity to the still somewhat seedy Pigalle, retains a distinctly bohemian feel.
What is just as appealing as the contrast in this neighborhood is the intimacy. This is a small, easily maneuverable area where people still greet each other on the street and merchants look out for their own.
For visitors who prefer to search for the crustiest baguette and perfect melon and cook for themselves, there is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.
