Neighbourhood: Our appartment is located in the 9th, the real Paris, in the 'trendy' SOPI - South Pigalle that the NY times describes as ' “There is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.”
Walkable distance to Montmartre, Moulin Rouge, Place des Abbesses, the bar staged in the movie Amelie, and all the shopping area of the Grand Magasins/Opera, and the garden of the museum of the vie romantique! Historically, this neighbourhood, famous in 19th Century literature, was called the 'New Athens' as most of the intellectuals of the era were living there at the time: Hugo, Chopin, Sand,Gauguin etc… while less wealthy artists were living in Montmartre. This unique intellectual energy and the mosaic of people living here, makes it one of the neighbourhoods valued by the Parisians to live. It has been celebrated by the New York Times as the 'real Paris’ off the standard tourist track. Jean Paul Gaultier and several movie stars are living a few houses away and can be seen in the street. This neighbourhood is a unique one, which explains the limited number of apartments that are available. Today, many young, talented fashion designers have located in this neighbourhood and are side by side with authentic food store and the numerous guitar shops. The famous 'rue des Martyrs' is 5mn away proposing one of the best and authentic choices in term of food shopping and real Parisian fooding (NY times describes it as 'the last real street in Paris.”).
Transportation: Very well located to discover Paris, it is connected to most of the key neighbourhoods by 2 subway lines that covers Paris from North to South (line 12) and east /west (line 2) and 5 buses (30/54/67/74/montmartrobus) will take you directly to the Champs Elysees, the Louvre, the top of Montmartre, the left bank etc..
Adjacent to the building, you will find a grocery store open every day until late (very unique in Paris) and an authentic fruit & vegetable store with very nice owners and some employees that speak English well. Our building host as well a tiny standing comedy theatre that has some English speaking shows in the summer time (no noise for you as it is on the street side). It is located on a quiet courtyard just off the animated ‘rue Jean Baptiste Pigalle and the rue des martyrs

Why Diane Ridon-Javet chose 9th Arrondissement Opera
this neighborhood is the real Paris: fun, classic, intellectual and in the center of everything. the new york times finally discovered the neighborhood... I fell in love with it when I arrive to study in paris... in 1990.... and I am still in love with it.
as the NY times describe it:
“There is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.” “FOR me, the Rue des martyrs is the last real street in Paris.”
