For people who like houses in art deco (nouveau) is this the place to be. Just walk trough this street and enjoy the architecture. At the end of the street you've got some nice restaurants and pubs.

These houses are beautiful to look at. So nice to walk through these streets. Well if you are the original homes are adapting to stay there.

If you're into architecture or if you like cute neighborhoods you should go there. I rented a bicycle and went there in a couple of hours. It was a bit tricky to find but loved it once I got there.

Jaw dropping. Oh to live in a road like this. It's a must if you like art nouveau. Even if you don't a walk down this street will certainly give you an appreciation. Simply splendid.
