A short walk from the "Butte aux Cailles" will take you to the "rue Daviel" where you'll find this exemplary small courtyard full of small houses and flowers at no. 10. There are 30 half-timbered houses, built in 1912 for social cases of families with 12 (twelve!!!) children. Obviously now taken over by a different clientele. Called "la Petite Alsace" because of the pointed rooved houses, recalling those of the Alsace region. In the first photo, in the background can be seen some white houses. This is known as "la Petite Russie" (little Russia) and was originally destined for the numerous Russian emigrate taxi-drivers of Paris. Probably get more photos when I can find my way in.

The "Petite Alsace" is private and you should not trespass, but you may find the main gate open, as I did.

Just opposite is the Villa Daviel, another short cul-de-sac that reminds you of the provinces.

Nearest metros are Corvisart or Glaciere.
