La Maison Rose- Montmartre, Paris

IMG_9715.jpg

Paris has many breathtaking landmarks- the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame…however, there is one that is much smaller in size but holds its own when it comes to rich Parisian history. This hidden gem is La Maison Rose.

Address

2 Rue de l’Abreuvoir, 75018 Paris, France

  Visiting La Maison Rose has been on my travel wish list for years. Contrary to popular belief, it wasn’t the pink exterior that lured me in (okay maybe a little) but rather the rich history that surrounds it. This adorable house is tucked away on the corner of a winding cobblestoned street in the neighborhood of Montmartre. It truly resembles the home of some fairy godmother in a Disney film.

La Maison Rose has been open for over one hundred years and has been made famous for its intimate relationship with the writers and artists of Montmartre. Montmartre has been an artist’s heaven throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Albert Camus, Suzanne Valadon, Maurice Utrillo, and even Picasso are amongst some of the artists that had been known to frequent this establishment. Some even going as far as to paint their interpretations of La Maison Rose.

The first time we visited we were disappointed to learn it was closed for dining. The second time we came however, we hit the jackpot! The inside is quite tiny and was bustling when we arrived, but we were taken to a table straight away. We traveled up a petite staircase to the second floor where we sat next to black and white vintage photographs and a window overlooking the sun-soaked streets of Montmartre.

My friends and I all ordered different items from their menu. I ordered a scone (that was incredible!), latte, and sweet potato & egg skillet. As my friends and I sat there talking about our Parisian adventures, I thought about how many artists had sat in this very space talking just as we were at that very moment.

A piece of advice if you’re looking to snap pictures here, make sure you go early because it does get filled with tourists and locals alike. Also be aware that La Maison Rose does close sporadically for events or maintenance, so make sure you check before dining.

Montmartre is by far my favorite neighborhood in Paris. It’s incredible artistic history and picture-perfect architecture continues to captivate all those who visit.
