LE PARIS DE HOTEL MAX

Hotel Max is located in the very old neighbourhood of Alésia, where many artists chose to live amongst its greenery. The area seems more like a quaint country village with its charming little villas, flower gardens and artists' workshops. Parc Montsouris, the second largest park in Paris, with its lake, and the Cité Universitaire Internationale, with its various foreign student residences and lively atmosphere, are both located just a few steps away from the Hotel.

Hotel MAX recommend The Catacombs

The history of the Catacombs dates back to the 18th century. An underground cemetery 18 000 meters long, where some six million Parisians were meticulously laid to rest - three times the current population of Paris inner city. These included illustrious dead such as Danton, Robespierre, La Pompadour and Montesquieu.

Montsouris water reservoir

Located at 115 rue de la Tombe-Issoire, the Montsouris reservoir was built in 1858 by the famous Baron Haussmann among others. The modest reservoir situated at Montsouris and fed by the polluted waters of the Seine was replaced by a gigantic reservoir. This is still in service and provides drinking water to two thirds of Parisians.

Hotel MAX loves SQUARE MONTSOURIS

Two steps away from Montsouris Park, Square de Montsouris is a small winding road lined with houses covered in wisteria and ivy. During the "Roaring Twenties" - a time when the 14th arrondissement was the intellectual centre of Paris - many artists lived on this street. Foujita, a French artist of Japanese origin, lived at number 3 from 1926 to 1929, and Soutine at no. 35 from 1928 to 1940. At the end of the square (at 53 avenue Reille), you can also see a building built by the architect Le Corbusier.

L'IMPASSE DU MOULIN VERT

The impasse du Moulin vert (Green Mill alley) is a haven of peace in the district of Alésia. It leads out into 27 rue des Plantes and is 130 meters long. Here visitors pass by coloured gates, a bell embedded in a wall, a high-perched figurine, a funny message to the postman, sculptures, a wooded plate, and of course the greenery and beautiful building facades ...

NOTRE-DAME DU TRAVAIL CHURCH (OUR LADY OF WORK)

Notre-Dame du Travail church, close to Place de Catalogne, in the 14th arrondissement is not like any other church. Who would imagine that the nave is a metal vessel made up of 135 tons of iron and steel! Supported by fine pillars and light arches, it is reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower or the Garabit viaduct. These arches come from the Palais de l'Industrie built by architect Victor Viel and engineer Alexis Barrault for the Universal Exhibition of 1855, demolished in 1899 to make room for the Grand and Petit Palais.

Hotel Max recommend Museum Bourdelle Montparnasse

The sculpture studio has surprisingly remained in its original state. The high glass roof, opened to the even, cold northern light, the mezzanine that allows one to look at the works from different angles, and even the walls, in the "colours of the time"...nothing has changed.
The stove, the large wooden table assembled by Bourdelle's father and the tumtables are still in their original positions. The antique style moulds, the Samourai armour and the medieval capital acting as a stand were all part of the artist's environment. 

To step into Antoine Bourdelle’s apartment is to enter the private world of an artist and the truth of an era. When Bourdelle moved into this room in 1885, he chose to join Montparnasse’s bohemian scene. A year later, he had his parents join him from Montauban. His father moved into the “studio shop” next door, which opened onto the street. - 

The garden contains Bourdelle's most famous bronze statues, cast from the models displayed in the Great Hall.

With Bourdelle's 19th century studios and Christian de Portzamparc's modern extension from 1992, the Musée Bourdelle offers to its visitors a unique range of exhibition areas, along with welcoming gardens that are ideal for a relaxing stroll at the heart of the Montparnasse d
