3. The area
: Montmartre / Caulaincourt
is in rue Tourlaque , the North West corner of Montmartre near
Junot & Caulaincourt (the richest part of Montmartre). 5min
from Abbesses, near the tourist area, but very quiet. Metro and
bus stations are around.
Rue Caulaincourt is a typical Haussmannien avenue. It is climbing
over the Montmartre bridge from the western side to the top of
the hill. It is planted with acacia trees and rich, sculptured
stone buildings. Rue Damremont is also a Haussmannien avenue but
a more commercial area. Here you will find all the shops to survive
in Paris. Some of them are basic and cheap, some others exclusive
and expensive, some are open 7 by 7. Anyhow you will find there
everything you need.
Paris a Museum:
Out of time and out of space.
Here is the
best place to feel like a permanent museum guest. You live in
the ancient museum of Montmartre. In your apartment, between 1890
and 2000, lived 5 generations of artists. The last owner was a
world wild known clown. But before, many artist , I have mentioned
several times in this site, worked and lived here. You can still
meet some of them in the garden: those from the past : because
the garden is plenty of their souvenirs; those from the present:
because most of the inhabitants are painters, sculptors, actors,
film directors, architects, photographs .. Those from the future,
because the atmosphere of this place , out of time and out of
space, making you feel like you are flying
are located inside Montmartre , a North Centre of PARIS.
Because it is only 2 metro stops from Saint Lazare (main Transport
node in Paris) it is very easy and fast to go everywhere inside
and outside PARIS from there.
Many more central places exist in Paris but are not as good from
the transport point of view
If you prefer
to go by bus (before or after rush hours, or during the weekend)
there are 2 buses 1 min from home (80 and 95) and 10 buses going
everywhere in Paris, if you walk (5min) to Place de Clichy. The
Bus Nr 80 is very comfortable and new . From its grand windows
you can visit (for 1 metro/bus ticket) 30% of Paris St Lazare,
Champs Elysées, The Seine river, Invalides
