The Cité Durmar


I never lie to you, I'm a dynamic young woman. I love discovering new things and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Going to exhibitions, having drinks with friends or eating out are moments that perfectly illustrate my epicurean vision of life. It is thanks to this philosophy that I fully enjoy Paris, which always has some nice surprises to offer me.

Just last week, I was quietly strolling through the heart of the capital looking for my future summer clothes and I discovered a real hidden treasure, the Cité Durmar.


It is often forgotten that before being absorbed, the outlying districts of Paris were only villages. Fortunately, there are still some hidden and atypical corners of this past in the capital today. The Cité Durmar is one of them. The 300-metre-long dead end is adjacent to the bustling Oberkampf Street. Moreover, it is very easy to pass in front of the entrance of the alley without even noticing it. It's a pity, because once you've reached a dead end, you enter another world, calm and relaxing the city's tumults disappear in an instant. A path that seems to have just come out of the past in which time has stopped.

Today, the impasse is lined with artists' studios that are more original to each other. These spaces are obviously free and open to all. You discover different artistic worlds depending on the gallery you are entering. An impressive artistic diversity, condensed all along this alley which will delight you with its beauty and originality. The Cité Durmar is a beautiful surprise, an address that will allow you for 30 minutes to take a calm, atypical and artistic break during your Parisian day.
