The Montmartre district is located in Paris 18th arrondissement. It once was a sanctuary for artists from around the world. Now it has become iconic thanks to "Amélie Poulain"'s and "Moulin Rouge" movies. This district is dominated by the Sacré Coeur Basilica, which one can reach by climbing high stairs or taking the funicular. Life in Montmartre is often described as exceptional for its bucolical atmosphere. Moreover, many apartments for rent feature balconies, terraces, and sometimes small gardens. Montmartre is a green setting just outside the center of Paris. To rub shoulders with artists in that neighborhood, stroll around Place du Tertre or take an aperitif in the sun on one of the pretty coffee terraces.
