You might not have considered Père Lachaise for where to stay in Paris - think again!
Edith Piaf, Jim Morrison, Dumas, Oscar Wilde, Canal Saint-Martin, République, Oberkampf, Bastille
Neither fashionable nor touristy, this north east neighbourhood is home at night to a dynamic and very independent music scene, and all day and all night to the world famous Père Lachaise cemetery where Edith Piaf, Jim Morrison, Alexandre Dumas, Oscar Wilde and so many more are resting for eternity.
Family owned shops and small supermarkets, bars and cafés dominate the district and the multiples are hardly to be seen. Lively Oberkampf and tranquil Canal Saint-Martin are on the doorstep. A metro hop brings the residents to the République and Bastille transport hubs so the neighbourhood has the best of both worlds – the calmness that comes with being once removed from the city centre with the ability to reconnect at will.
