Love from Paris! A studio in le Marais

Guests favourite Studio in Paris

"We were delighted to stay at Studio Chapon. It was a perfect location in 3rd Arrondissement (rue Chapon) and walking distance to many interesting spots and le Marais and Centre Pompidou.

The studio is small with a kitchennette perfect for Breakfast (well supplied with coffee, tea, butter, jam and milk). I would walk to a great bakery close by  every morning and we were ready to explore Paris! The studio was also quiet and comfortable. Definitely next time we go to Paris we will stay there. Many thanks for you kind assistance"

Paris secrets! Gardens and parks to picnic this August

Petite Pariscope
Monthly Paris Tips

August is the perfect time to participate in the great Parisian sport - picnicking! Enjoy green open spaces, secret squares with less crowds. A great way to pinch a few Paris pennies - grab a baguette, cheese and wine!

1. Jardin Francs-Bourgeois- des Rosiers

In Le Marais, this is an original Parisian public garden that can’t be seen from the street. To access: cross the hall of Hôtel de Coulanges (35 rue Francs-Bourgeois) to find yourself alone in a wide enclosed space, nice green path, wooden benches and privacy you wont find anywhere in Paris. Open to 2-7pm  MAP

2. Jardin Anne Frank

Behind the Centre George Pompidou (Marais), at the end of 'Impasse Berthaud' a paved dead end street, making it hard to find; this garden is tranquil, quiet and far from tourists. Only a few locals go despite the natural beauty of the park. MAP

3. Chateau Bagetelle 

The Parc de Bagatelle, one of the most beautiful parks in Paris, was created because of a bet between Marie-Antoinette and the Count of Artois. The park is now best known for its prize-winning rose garden and the English style garden. MAP

4. The Hotel Particulier Montmartre

Behind the black wrought iron portal, in the unlikely Passage de la Sorcière, is impassive Directoire style house surrounded by a garden both elegant and wild. The terrace is frequented by locals and hotel guests, including artists and performers. MAP

5. Sully Garden

At the entrance to Hotel de sully, at the  Place de Vosges, Sully Jardin is a beautiful, gem of sumptuous decoration. Tranquility in the city centre. MAP

A 'petit' Paris TIP! Where to stay in Paris... the REAL Paris

...MORE on quiet Paris...
Here is a little FYI on 'where to stay'

Image: street located in the 14th arrondissement - click HERE

BOOKING TIP: Paris may be the most visited city in the world but each day we're surprised to hear guests think districts outside the 1st/2nd arrondissements are NOT Paris.

Sure the main sights are there (though not all, or most) but when a city is so cosily made up of 20 neighbourhoods that all mesh into one another so easily like one big village, taking 5-15mins to reach the centre, why wouldn't you stay somewhere more authentic, tranquil & local without the crowds?!
Especially as every village is a little Paris within Paris with its own beautiful bustling cafe-life, bars, restaurants, boulangeries, gardens, museums. If anything these areas are MORE Parisian.

Image: the real Paris in the 13th arrondissement - click HERE)

So the moral of the story, the best of Paris is NOT the 1st dear travellers & all 20 districts ARE PARIS! (NY is 789Km2, Paris is 105km - trust me, you are in Paris :)

9th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th!!
