- A village in the city : for a long time « la Butte » (« the Mound ») had the aspect of a village. Until the 1920s the presence of cows ensured the daily provision of fresh milk.
- A vineyard far from the country : le « Clos Montmartre » (Montmartre’s enclosed plot ») carries on the long wine-growing tradition of Montmartre, a wine that would make you « jump like a goat »
- Fun : cabarets, bals, open-air dance hall where you could drink champagne, wine or absinthe attracted the Parisians
- Bread on the Mound, a big deal : in the past there were windmills to grind wheat and produce flour. Nowadays Montmartre counts many bakers who were awarded with the « best baguette of Paris » prize.
If you wish to try the combination of the most favorite flavours of the French : bread, cheese and wine there is no better place than Montmartre which still has a vineyard and remains very attached to the bread traditions.
