Montmartre is a hill in the north of Paris, primarily known for the white domed basilica of the Sacré Coeur and as a major artistic and nightlife district in town. Rebels and early feminists use to live there among starving artists such as Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh or Picasso. Later, bohemian artists replaced the now famous and world recognized masters.
Being outside the ancient city limits, it was a tax free land that quickly became a popular drinking area; an old time tradition of wine making established the reputation! It is now a very trendy place to live, a very special atmosphere floats in the air. Far away from the mandatory tourist circuit, the time has come to enjoy in company the authenticity of a genuine village within Paris, to stroll along the side street, meet the colorful locals and their weird habits and get to know why the hill inspires romance, why so many movies take place in the district and what has inspired the famous or infamous painters that once lived in Montmartre leaving an indelible trace.
