Belle Belleville - a different Paris neighbourhood

Welcome to the bohemian funky Belleville district of Paris. Known as the artistic up and coming neighbourhood where more locals reside than tourists, this neighbourhood assures an authentic rustic Paris experience.  An alternative side to Paris where the next van gogh would be found! Only 15 mins to the city centre and all main attractions. 


The Belleville district of Paris is the 19th arrondissement and borders the 10th, 18th (Montmartre) and 20th and offers some amazing paris and eiffel views from various unexpected corners and streets.

It is conveniently between some of Paris most tranquil and beautiful locations, parks and attractions. Close to the beautiful Parc des Buttes Chaumont, (hilltop park offering sweeping views of Paris), the famous Pere La chaise cemetary,  Paris’ bustling Chinatown, Belleville and Pere Lachasie Markets and Canal St Martin with its famous bakery 'Pain des Idees' and more. 

Travellers are assured all the quintessential Parisian experiences. From boulangerie pleasures, to parks and sweeping city views, various markets of fresh foods and antiques vintage (the way of Parisian life), multicultural diversity with chinatown and little India and Africa (greek restaurants too) not far.

With a real artistic feel (a large part of Paris’ street art is found here) and genuine quaint neighbourhood that has been left largely untouched in some areas to offer a village feel, and gentrified in others for a modern quirky touch. It is also a very affordable part of Paris, cafes and restaurants are reasonable  as this is working class Paris. 

Some locals favourite cafes are there too such as ‘Aux Folies’ and the oberkampft, Menilmonent area is easy to reach for lively nightlife. 

Tip: Go to Onze Bar for live music in a local small bar. Bozaris Cafe, quaint (secret) square St. Marthe with award winning restaurant Le Gallopin and more. (Ask us for best tips  the must -sees and eats of the area. EMAIL HERE
