It's not in the center of Paris, and there are no great museums or monuments here, but Butte Aux Cailles is a lovely village in the city, a lovely residential area with some cool cafes and restaurants, easy to get to on the Metro. Take...More
Off the beaten path, but not too much, as this area has been discovered. It's a great place to stroll and enjoy the village atmosphere and look at restaurant menus. Stop for a coffee. Really lovely area.
I love to stroll through this part of town, looking at the buildings and checking out the cafes and restaurants. it has become discovered and is now gentrified, but once was where the workers lived. Very quiet and peaceful, sort of a village in the...More
La Butte-Aux-Cailles is one of those areas generally ignored by tourists. The main reason is the fact that it is located in a district not renowned for its attractiveness.
However, you won't regret taking some time here. It is still a calm place, far from...More
This neighborhood is like a little village. Look for the little gardens and the street art. Rue de la Butte -aux - Cailles is the centre. Look around in the quiet streets around like rue Buot, rue Michal, rue Alphand, passage Boiton and the rue...More
We came across a map for a walk in this area. It is a surprise to find small houses amongst the apartment blocks. There was a swimming pool, the houses, a fountain, and lots of lovely cafes. Allow about 1.5 hours to look around, accessible...More

Residential neighborhood in the 13th, used to be undiscovered, now gentrified. Some pleasant neighborhood cafes and restaurants. Some street art. But best of all are the many pleasant quiet streets to explore.
We were staying nearby here and took a walk to specifically look for and photograph street art. There were many great examples to be found by wandering streets in this area. Some interesting cafes and restaurants too. It had a feel of a village community...More
This is a small section in the otherwise unremarkable 13e which contains Chinatown with a lot of immigrants from China, India, Africa which gives a unique feel with downscale mom and pop stores - But Butte Aux Cailles is a genuinely French village and charming...More
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not far, around La Butte aux Cailles, the streets suddenly imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve
been transported. The beauty of these streets lies in their surprises around every twist and turn.
