Country village charm in the heart of Paris









Far-removed from Paris’ typical tourist sites, Mouzaïa and La Campagne à Paris (the countryside in Paris) are two of the French capital's most charming but little-known quarters ­­– rare oases of calm within the city limits.

With more than a hint of rural charm, these picturesque pockets, located in the outer and often-overlooked 19th and 20th arrondissements respectively, are like something out of a storybook, largely undiscovered by visitors and by many locals as well. Beginning life in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries as modest subdivisions for the working class, these much-coveted neighbourhoods are now home to the city's bourgeois-bohemian, but nevertheless retain an authentic atmosphere that evokes a Paris of days gone by.
