The Saint-Martin Canal, a true village spirit

House of architecture, Hôtel du Nord of Marcel Carné and Manoir de Paris draw at less than five minutes a triangle of Parisian emblematic places. They will offer to you a totally new and precious panorama of the imaginative world that created Paris. Urban myths, cinematographic or legendary, have shaped the history of the Capital: embrace this other side of the decor! 

To breathe, visit the Villemin small public garden, green lung of the 10th arrondissement, and relax at the Café A terrace. A very renowned but affordable traditional cuisine will then wait for you at the Enfants Perdus. 

On the banks of the Saint-martin canal, immortalised by Sisley and Amélie Poulain, you will be in close contact with the true Paris of the Parisians. They get it right, eager for picnics and bike rides on Sunday. And like you, they go to the terraces of Chez Prune, of the Verre volé, of Philou or of the Bob's Juice Bar for a drink or a snack. They discover their books at Artazard. They enjoy a slice of  Italy thanks to the coloured façades of Antoine and Lili and have fun at the cabinet of curios of the Comptoir Général. Then they travel in the true Ireland of the Cork and Cavan Pub. Sometimes, in good company, they treat themselves to a 2H30 unforgettable cruise on the canal.
