Buttes Chaumont

The Buttes-Chaumont district owes its name to the stone quarries that provided the building materials for the whole of Paris. It was then known as Mont Chauve, which was transformed over time. At the end of the 19th century, a park was built that is still one of the most attractive in Paris. People come here from all over the capital, and even further afield, to picnic, play sport, listen to music or entertain children with the many activities on offer. The park is also home to one of the oldest and last remaining Guignol theatres! The Buttes-Chaumont Park stretches from Belleville to the nearby Canal de l’Ourcq and is one of Parisians’ favourite places to relax.

The Butte Chaumont, like nearby Belleville, is a former village that was not annexed to Paris until the end of the 19th century. The whole district still bears the traces of this and can be visited like a historic monument! The heart of the district is the Park, where you can learn more about the history of Paris.


Let’s have a look at a few places of interest close to the hotel. The Mouzaïa district, with its cobbled streets lined with small houses with gardens. Then there’s the Butte Bergeyre, which can only be reached by a single road or by climbing a flight of stairs. A sort of small bastide in the heart of Paris, there are vineyards where there used to be a football stadium. Le Plateau, a district for artists of all kinds with a strong cinematic identity. The famous Buttes-Chaumont studios and the ORTF tower were located here. Up until the 1980s, the area was a meeting place for many stars of song, television, and film! Some even chose to live there, and it’s not unusual to go to the market with one of them. Walk along the park to the border of the 20th arrondissement, in the popular and cosmopolitan district of Belleville. Continue back towards Laumière, Jaurès, the Canal de l’Ourcq and finally the ReMIX Hôtel. What a lovely walk!
Les Buttes-Chaumont is first and foremost a village, and the whole atmosphere is imbued with it. Far from the industrial districts, despite its blue-collar past, it has managed to retain its working-class yet charming identity. The area has even become very popular in recent years. The ReMIX Hotel is, of course, ideally located for you to enjoy these two different but complementary districts of the 19th arrondissement. Let yourself be tempted!
