You will feel like a 'Parisien' rather than a tourist in this part of the city, as it is a residential neighbourhood to the west of the hill of Montmartre, off the direct tourist route. The shops, restaurants and amenities serve locals who live and work here, providing excellent service and value for money.
The charm, convenience and village-like atmosphere is backed up by fantastic local bakeries, fruit markets, butchers, wine shops, famous chocolate, supermarkets and a choice of local bars and cafes.
At the same time you are only minutes away from the superb sights at Sacre Coeur overlooking Paris. The historic and artistic atmosphere of Montmartre are bound to captivate you. You will be charmed by the narrow winding streets, its cemetery and vineyard and the bustling nightlife of Pigalle.
Rue Caulaincourt enjoys excellent transportation with metro and bus connections to all the main tourist centres of Paris. The Lamarck-Caulaincourt Metro stop is only five minutes away bringing you, in about ten minutes, directly to l'Opera, shopping in 'les grands magasins' (the large department stores), the Madeleine, the Musee D'Orsay on the Seine and St Germain des Pres beyond.
The 80 bus route is immediately outside the front door and brings you within fifteen minutes to the areas above as well as to the Champs-Elysees and the Eiffel Tower beyond. The number 85, just slightly further down the road will bring you to the Luxembourg Gardens, the Louvre, Pont Neuf and St Germain des Pres beyond. Going in the opposite direction, the 85 will take you to the famous Paris flea markets (Marche aux Puces) at rue Clignancourt in about fifteen minutes.
