Situé à mi-chemin entre le 11e et le 12e arrondissement et délimité par le boulevard de Charonne et la rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, le quartier Nation avec sa place demeure un point central de la ville et témoigne de l’artisanat parisien.

Considered one of the liveliest in the capital, the district also has some nooks and crannies with a bucolic air. There are many shops, bars and concert halls, as well as pretty little side streets at the bend of a street or under the porch of a building. The passage Lhomme, being the best known of the district, reveals itself as an attractive paved road bathed in vegetation. Recently refurbished and vegetated, it retains its historical heritage, erecting in its heart the sculptural work of Dalou “The Triumph of the Republic”.

A treasure trove of craftsmanship, you can admire the remains of old sawmills and workers’ workshops with wooded bay windows in the district. Today we admire the La Sorbonne-Nouvelle campus, a project signed by the architect Christian de Portzamparc.

Nation is a district that is renewing itself while retaining its historic charm, making it a popular place for Parisian city dwellers.



Halfway between Oberkampf and the Canal Saint-Martin, the Saint-Ambroise district is the peaceful and residential corner of the 11th arrondissement.

Centrally located and surrounded by the liveliness of the surrounding streets, Saint-Ambroise is a great place to live. We particularly appreciate its historical and cultural position as well as its pleasant green spaces such as the Maurice-Gardette square. On Boulevard Voltaire, you will discover the imposing Saint-Ambroise church, which gives its name to the district. This monument built by the architect Théodore Ballu in the 19th century mixes the neo-romanesque and neo-gothic movements and marks its presence by its enormous bell towers.
For an original escapade, we like to go to the Atelier des Lumières, offering immersive exhibitions. Housed in a former foundry, it is a guaranteed journey through the artists’ paintings that cover the walls, floors and ceilings.

Saint-Ambroise is both a cultural and family district where life is good.



Located on the edge of Bastille and the Père Lachaise cemetery, the Roquette district has become the heart of the Parisian nightlife.

Formerly a penitentiary district, Roquette now has a radiant face, popular with young people for its friendly and trendy atmosphere. With its maze of small, typically Parisian streets, it is home to trendy galleries and countless bars and restaurants that attract night owls and art lovers. Known for its festive atmosphere, rue de Lappe was popularised in the 1980s by great artists and musicians, giving it its title of Parisian nightlife mecca. A parade of mythical establishments can be seen there, inviting Saturday nights to enjoy its unique atmosphere. Inhabited by the square of La Roquette, the district benefits from a splendid green setting. We particularly appreciate its flowerbeds, its palm trees, its pretty belvedere and its majestic cascading fountain.

A lively and festive district ideal for a stroll by day or a night out.



Nestled between the Place de la Bastille and the Place de la Nation, the Charonne I Paul Bert district is protected from the madness of Paris.

A small district in the 11th arrondissement, it is appreciated for its charm and its preserved authenticity. Its village-like atmosphere invites you to stroll through its streets, where you will discover gourmet, avant-garde and notorious addresses. Inspired by its creative air, the district is home to beautiful galleries and artists of a new kind. We particularly appreciate the Arts Factory gallery which exhibits hundreds of retrospectives of contemporary artists in a loft. For a plant-based tour, we visit the Émile-Gallé gardens and its cross-shaped paths, allowing us to enjoy the variety of its landscapes. Known for hosting one of the seven largest sundials in Europe, we also notice its many modern sculptures in Bourgogne limestone.

A particular atmosphere between modernization and Parisian tradition, for this district where the most popular addresses of the capital flourish.



Located in the 11th arrondissement between Belleville and Les Enfants Rouges, Parmentier I Oberkampf is a trendy, festive and nightlife district.

Bounded by the rue d’Oberkampf, this ancient artery of the city is one of those charming and lively places that transforms into a festive institution at night. Populated by small independent shops, we like to stroll through its pretty decorating boutiques or its old bookshops. The district hides many treasures as you walk down its many cul-de-sacs, where former workshops have been transformed into industrial lofts. The Durmar housing estate, a cheerful country-style bric-a-brac where many craftsmen’s workshops have been set up, is one of them. The same atmosphere can be found in the cité du Figuier, where you can discover colourful New York loft-style facades in the middle of lush vegetation.

Known for its nightlife, this district is a nest of live music. It is home to many institutions such as the Nouveau Casino concert hall, which has a pronounced taste for the underground and hosts major international artists every year. There are also a number of discotheques and bars with a relaxed atmosphere, typical of this district.

A clever mix of nightlife and family life.
