7 June 2017

Postcards from Paris is a newsletter about the city I love!

Welcome to Postcards from Paris June 2017!

If you’re new to Postcards from Paris — WELCOME! My name is Teena Hughes, I’m an Australian who has lived in Paris several times, and I love to go back once a year and spend about six weeks feeling like a local Parisienne :-)  I catch up with my friends I met there over twenty years ago, plus I host Adventures.  I’ve also written a couple of books about Paris, and I love this city more than any other.

Enjoy the little French tidbits I have for you today, and do get in touch if you’d like to chat or ask a question. Here we go!

11 Great things about Montmartre

“This most bohemian of Paris neighborhoods is known for its cobblestone streets, its village atmosphere, its nightlife, a big white church, and for the artists who found a home there more than a century ago. Up on a hill sits the former village of Montmartre, where narrow streets climb and bend their way up to Sacre Coeur, the big white church visible from most everywhere in Paris. Still famous for nightlife, it’s at the foot of Montmartre you’ll find Moulin Rouge and late-night bars.”

I have many great memories of the Montmartre area over all my visits to Paris — it’s a favourite! When I was in town and my friend Gaby was also in town from Mauritius, we always met up here for coffee and/or lunch before we spent hours combing through the textile and haberdashery stores.  It takes a special kind of friend to want to spend a day with textiles :-)

I recently came across a great article with eleven fabulous things to do in and around Montmartre, which I thought you might enjoy too:
