Here is my little Paris review. This time we were staying at a cute apartment in Le Marais. The area is extremely historic, arty, young and very very busy. For shopping and inspiration I totally enjoy the Rue Vieille-du-Temple neighborhood. Don’t miss to pass by MERCI, have a coffee at the Institut Suedois and for dinner try the traditional “Les Philosophes” or the hip and very Pink Flamingo pizza place.
For the classic superhip & chic go to Collette, Astier de Villatte, Ba&sh at Rue Saint-Honoré. Enjoy the cool shops and the beautiful architecture at Palais Royal and say Bonjour to Mona Lisa at the Louvre.
Get the best “Oh mon dieu”-view from Sacré-Cœur. For the romance and the real Paris feeling walk the streets of the cute Montmartre neighborhood. For the best ideas in town go to Atypyk and Les Mauvaises Graines.
For the real deal – the less touristic Paris, try the 9th arrondissement (around Rue Condorcet & Rue Navarin), find beautiful vintage outfits at Chezel, have lunch at Hôtel Amour and take a tea at Musée de la Vie Romantique.
Last but not least – my latest discovery – Rue de Grenelle at Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Classy and very inspiring. Don’t miss to check out the Maison Martin Margiela shop and the most fun Bonton kids shop.
Voilà! I’m driving back home with plenty of nice memories, Champagne in the boot and a Vogue on the backseat.
