Top 20 South Pigalle, Paris vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
South Pigalle, previously a rather seedy corner of Paris (home to the Moulin Rouge), has picked up a new nickname, 'SoPi', and gone all trendy. Most tourists alighting at the Pigalle metro station tend to walk up towards Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur, but hipster Parisians – the self-styled BoBo (bourgeois bohemians) – head in the opposite direction, to South Pigalle. During the day, wander in and out of the gorgeous shops with the locals on the fab Rue des Martyrs or visit Saint Georges to feel like you're in a village in the middle of the city. The area truly comes to life at night though - dance in the area's many cool bars and restaurants and rub shoulders with some of Paris's hippest young things. It's surprisingly central and is easy to zip across to other more famous parts of the city should you feel the need.
